Houston Dynamo's Dominic Kinnear says conceding first "took the wind out of us" in Columbus Crew loss
Speaking to the media this week, Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear said jumping on teams early will help turn their fortunes on the road. Unfortunately for his club it was the Columbus Crew who got that jump on their way to a 3-0 win Saturday night at Crew Stadium.

The life of a striker is usually predicated upon scoring goals.
When they’re filling the stat sheet, they’re beloved. When they’re not, they come under fire regardless of other factors.
However, there’s an underlying factor that doesn’t fit in. For forwards, their chances are usually dependent upon the play of those around them. Getting quality service in good areas can turn five goals into 15.
