MLS Regular Season

Dynamo's "do-or-die situation" starts now

If Houston hopes to make playoffs, it must get a result vs. Revs
Do-or-die for Dynamo

When the Houston Dynamo travel to Gillette Stadium to take on the New England Revolution Saturday night, they recognize that both teams have a lot of work to do: If they hope to make a run to the playoffs, they have to start now.

The Houston Dynamo have been keeping their training staff very busy, with several players likely out or game-time decisions against New England this weekend.

“From the first game, we’ve picked up injuries like Eddie Robinson’s, and we’ve been patching things together all season,” said midfielder Lovel Palmer. “It’s tough, but we just have to go out and grind out three points.”

The 2010 Houston Dynamo may take a page out of the 2009 Dynamo playbook in an attempt to jumpstart the team’s season. At practice Thursday, 2009 MLS Best XI defender Geoff Cameron was splitting time with defenders Bobby Boswell and Eddie Robinson in the center of the Dynamo defense.

“We will look at it,” head coach Dominic Kinnear said of moving the recently recovered Cameron into the back four. “We have some banged-up center backs right now, and we have to put our best team on the field. If that means Geoff goes back to center back, then that is what we will do.”

Houston without its "good-looking" back

The struggling Houston Dynamo defense will be shorthanded this weekend, as starting left back Mike Chabala serves a suspension for yellow card accumulation. But center back Bobby Boswell does not sound all that worried, joking that the impact of Chabala’s loss will be less athletic than aesthetic.

The Houston Dynamo returned to practice Tuesday and were still a little sore about the team’s performance Sunday night against the Sounders.

When asked about Sunday’s game, head coach Dominic Kinnear seemed eager to put the team’s performance in the rear view mirror.

“Moving on, next question,” Kinnear said. “We’re all disappointed with what’s going on, and we’re looking forward to the [next] game.”

Some of the players were not as frustrated with the result as they were with the collective effort.
