During the entire 2010 season and dating back to June of 2009 in regular season play, the Houston Dynamo have failed to win back-to-back games. Against the Seattle Sounders on Saturday however, Houston will have one final chance to pull off that feat.

Though a positive result will not overcome the overall disappointment in the 2010 season, finishing the season on a streak would certainly feel like a step in the right direction.

There is an ongoing discussion taking place in
MLS circles that is central to what the league’s 34-game regular season will look
like in 2011.

In an interview with Soccer
, MLS Commissioner Don Garber said a decision is being weighed between
“two approaches”: 1) maintaining the balanced format of 2010 in which every
team plays the others the same number of times; or 2) moving back to an
unbalanced schedule that promotes rivalries.
