Trading Adam Moffat to Seattle was in no ways “waving the white flag”. When I first heard the news I was a bit puzzled but after stepping back and looking at the trade again, it was a great move. While Moffat is a fan favorite and will surely be missed at BBVA Compass Stadium, this move sets up nicely not only for the future, but for this season’s run towards a playoff berth.
Saturday night the Houston Dynamo were beaten 2-0 by the New England Revolution at BBVA Compass Stadium. The loss was the second straight loss at home for the Dynamo and emotions were boiling over. Defender Bobby Boswell was sent off in the first half for a head butt but after the match it was forward Brian Ching who had some things to say about how teams play against the Dynamo at BBVA.no comments
Entering this week the Dynamo hadn’t won a regular season MLS match on the road since July 28, 2012. Looking at the trip they embarked on this week most Dynamo fans would have been happy with two, maybe 4 points. Not only did they finally break their road unbeaten streak but they won twice in four days on both coasts.
On a warm spring day in downtown Houston the Dynamo entered the MLS record books. With a 2-1 win over the Chicago Fire the Dynamo are now unbeaten in 35 consecutive home matches, breaking Real Salt Lake’s record. The win didn’t come easy as the Dynamo scored first, were equalized quickly thereafter, and then scored the winner on somewhat of a fluke.
