While the Dynamo left Robertson Stadium on Thursday night frustrated after the disappointing 1-0 defeat in the SuperLiga semifinals, the silver lining was the return of Geoff Cameron. The midfielder played his first minutes since tearing his PCL on April 24 against the Chicago Fire.

The Houston Dynamo got some bad news late last week, as MRI results indicated that goalkeeper Pat Onstad has torn abdominal muscles and will likely be out for an extended period of time.

The MRI, which Onstad got last Thursday, showed several torn muscles and left the Dynamo man with two options: shut it down and rehab the muscles after they felt better or undergo surgery.

Monday’s practice session provided the Houston Dynamo with a mix of good and bad news. The team looks as if it has gained one player, Geoff Cameron, for Thursday, but it will be without Adrian Serioux.

Serioux limped off the field during Saturday’s game against New York in the 68th minute and did not look good. The defender did not practice with the full team on Monday.

Welcome to edition No. 14 of my weekly blog. It appears on the new every Monday.

I think it is safe to say that no U.S. city has ever experienced a week of soccer like the one we just had.

Between the
All-Star Game, the All-Star festivities, and the Dynamo-Red Bulls game,
it was a historic and defining week for soccer, MLS, and the Dynamo.

Dynamo net crucial draw

The Houston Dynamo battled back from down a man and down a goal in a gutsy and hard–fought 2-2 draw with the Red Bulls on Saturday night.

“We’re very happy with the comeback, and we showed a ton of character to pull the goal out the way we did to get the point,” Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear. “But we are putting ourselves in holes here and testing ourselves mentally, and it is nice to see we are not burying our heads.”

Saturday night at Robertson Stadium, using a last-minute goal from substitute
Brian Mullan to thrill a crowd of 24,750 and spoil the Major League Soccer
debut of French superstar Thierry Henry.

crowd of 24,750 was the 10th highest in Dynamo history at Robertson Stadium and
a season high, more than New York’s crowd of 20,312 for Thierry Henry’s debut
on July 22.

Red Bulls look to halt road struggles

Henry, Kandji key to breaking five-game road winless streak
NY look to cure road woes

The New York Red Bulls geared up on Friday for Saturday’s road match in Houston with a practice focused on technique and tactical specifics gearing up for the Dynamo. The focus on situational scenarios and finishing emphasized two key areas as New York worked on cutting down on individual mistakes.

The Red Bulls have not won a league match in more than a month and have not taken three points on the road in their last five travels. The loss to Columbus on the road two weeks ago still leaves a bad taste in the mouth of the Red Bulls.
