Hot Time In Old Town at related • 0 views

After yet another agonizing bye week for the Fire in this young 2012 MLS season, it's finally that time again. I am back to prep you for the Fire's Sunday night showdown with the Dynamo with our customary 3 questions exchange. Instead of having 6 total questions like we usually do, Zach Woosley over at Dynamo Theory was kind enough to answer the 3 questions that we had for him.

Earlier this week, we discussed Houston's offensive struggles and whether Cam Weaver has earned a spot in the starting lineup. Saturday morning, Weaver added a brace to hand the Dynamo Reserve team the Central/Mountain division championship after a 2-1 win over Chicago Fire Reserves.

Weaver's two goals give him a total of 11 on the season, a total that ties Chris Wondolowski's Dynamo record in the 2006 Reserve league.

It was like the first seven seconds of that Revolution TV spot.

Black and white scenes of frustrated players. Mistakes. Distorted audio. General malaise.

Although the Revolution followed the philosophy Jay Heaps drove him in the second part of that spot "We're going to attack" they fell into their 2011 form when Luiz Camargo equalized in the 87th minute.

The emotional home opener at the newest cathedral of soccer in America is passed and it's time to get down to business. The Dynamo have limited time to recover and prepare themselves mentally and physically for a well rested Portland Timbers team that is desperate for points.

It's been a hectic week for the Dynamo, the dreaded side effect of having to compress the season's home schedule in a shortened amount of time.

Dynamo at Fire: At Last Another Match

It's only been two weeks since the Dynamo last played an MLS match, but it feels like a month. Considering the season just started and the fact we're still a month (a little less technically) from the home opener probably contributes to the gap feeling a lot worse.

It's been a tumultuous couple weeks though for the Dynamo despite not being on the field.

Last-second Clark penalty gives Dynamo crucial win over Real Salt Lake

After the night Nick Rimando had in goal for Real Salt Lake, there's no question he'd like to have one moment back.

Rimando, who saved a Brad Davis penalty and a point-blank Will Bruin header late in the second half, committed a foul on Mac Kandji that led to a last-second penalty, one that Colin Clark converted to give the Houston Dynamo a 1-0 victory over RSL at BBVA Compass Stadium Thursday night.

Between the weird scheduling of the match on a Thursday night, the questionable officiating, depleted rosters, and the rather languid play, last night's match between the Houston Dynamo and Real Salt Lake took the "beautiful" out of the beautiful game. Until the final seconds of the match, it appeared that the score would stay at 0-0 and the Dynamo would have to wait until September 29th to finally pick up their first MLS home win since August 3rd, but then Macoumba Kandji was fouled in the box and Colin Clark converted giving the Dynamo a 1-0 win and breaking their 4 match streak of not winning an MLS match.

In seasons past we've generated shot +/- stats for players to illuminate how teams play with certain players on the field. We've been a little remiss in waiting this long into the season to get the 2012 stats out, but with the international break it's a good time.

As a refresher, we count the net shots a team generates with a player on the field (so their team's shots minute shots allowed) and normalize it to 90 minutes.

The Dynamo fell 1-0 at Red Bull Arena last night in a match that was pretty frustrating for all of us to watch. It sucks to lose a second straight match against a conference opponent, but there's still plenty of time left in the season. Thankfully, as we learned last season, MLS can be very forgiving to poor starts, though considering all the road games it's not really a poor start.
