Behind the scenes with the Dynamo's Head Sports Turf Manager, Dan Bergstrom

When fans attend a Houston Dynamo, Houston Dash soccer match or a TCU football game at BBVA Compass Stadium, their eyes are glued to the players, the coaches and the scoreboard. They want to see their favorite players, cheer loudly for their team, boo the opposing team as loud as possible, and hopefully see some great competition.

Cabrera has two main elements to his tactical system. They've been effective, but they have potentially fatal flaws.

Wilmer Cabrera's tactical revamp of the Houston Dynamo this season has produced very promising results. Six points from three games is better than most MLS teams have produced this season, and the Dynamo's new additions (notably Romell Quioto and Alberth Elis, obviously) have paid real dividends so far.

The ratings saw a drop in the Dynamo's first loss of the season

In the third week of Rate the Players we saw quite the dip in ratings compared to the opening two weeks and for good reason. In the Houston Dynamo's first defeat, the team looked absolutely dreadful in the second half. However, our top performers all contributed plenty in the first half which is what is worth mentioning.

It's another week of rating player performances! These ratings would be tallied up and averaged to see how we all feel the players performed in matches. When you rate players keep in mind some perspective. Players that score 1 goal don't necessarily merit a perfect 10.

Houston Dynamo at Portland Timbers Final Score: Dynamo falter in second half, fall to Timbers

Houston fall 4-2 on the road against Portland.

The hype leading up to Houston's first game on the road against the Portland Timbers was pretty big almost too big to live up to. Almost. The two teams combined for 29 shots and a lot of back and forth action early on. While it wound up being a bit of a weird one, a game that included two goals off of handball calls, both teams found time in front of the net but only one team found themselves dominating possession.

The Dynamo are one of just four MLS teams who have been able to accumulate six points in their first two games. They are also one of the two teams (along with San Jose) to do it without having to go on the road.

Plenty of potential for more goals as the Dynamo travel to Portland.

Two out of the remaining four undefeated MLS squads will face up this Saturday in Portland when the Dynamo face the Timbers. The Dynamo are starting off 2-0-0 for only the second time in their history and another win will be new territory for the club.

Who's in your starting XI?

The Houston Dynamo embarks on its first game on the road and they head towards inhospitable waters as they make their way towards Portland, Oregon to take on the Timbers. The Timbers are the lone team above them in the Western Conference standings and a win over them in front of their incredible fan base would certainly cause other MLS clubs to take notice of the new-look Dynamo.
