The Dynamo
continued their struggles this past weekend, losing
to Seattle
 2-0 at Qwest Field on Sunday. Houston finished with zero shots
on goal
 for the second straight game. Although the Dynamo have
struggled the past few weeks, one
bright spot
 has been the return of midfielder Geoff Cameron, who had not
played since injuring his knee on April 24.

Dynamo Academy player Christian
Manisck
 continues his blog about his experiences training in Brazil.

AEG
President Tim Leiweke sat down with the Houston Chronicle for aQ&A to
discuss the new Dynamo stadium which is projected to open in 2012.

The Dynamo
are proud of the performance of backup goalkeeper Tally Hall,
who has stepped up in a big way due to Pat Onstad's injury.

After
practice today, Dynamo rookies Francisco Navas Cobo and Sammy Appiah learned what
being a rookie is all about.

The annual Houston Labor Day Cup presented
by South Texas Dental is coming up fast.  The three-day youth soccer
tournament showcases teams from all over Texas,
Louisiana, and Mexico.

The U.S. national team will
take on
 Brazil
tonight in the New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey. The big question is whether
or not
Bob Bradley will be coaching the national team beyond this match.
One possible destination for Bradley could be EPL squad Aston
Villa
, whose coach recently resigned.

The United
States Soccer Federation is attempting to enforce stricter
standards
 on Division 2 soccer clubs.

Former
Romanian international Ilie Dumitrescu has signed
on
 to be the new head coach of Steaua Bucharest. The interesting part
about this story is his annual salary.

Former
Dynamo assistant coach John Spencer has been announced as the new head
coach
 of the Portland Timbers as they make the jump to Major League
Soccer in 2011.
