After a fairly disappointing 2015 season, Owen Coyle and the Houston Dynamo will look to improve the side in order to compete in the talented Western Conference.

It's been well-publicized that the 2015 MLS campaign was less than perfect for the Houston Dynamo. A second straight playoff-less season was not what the club was looking for when they hired coach Owen Coyle to replace Dominic Kinnear.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!

The Earthquakes are a much less terrible team to play than they used to be. No longer the Goonies or the Bash Brothers, under Dominic Kinnear the 'Quakes are more akin to a regular soccer team. However, the Sounders dispatched them at home, as they should, and a two-game home stand is successful for Seattle.

Year 1 of Dominic Kinnear's second stint with the Earthquakes ended without a playoff berth, and one of the primary reasons for that was the club's lack of goals.

The Fire's last trip to Houston on April 14 resulted in a 2-1 loss to the team that eliminated them from the playoffs last season. The Fire played relatively well in that game and if not for two individual plays by Brad Davis, would have left Texas with a result. In April, Davis dusted fill-in right back Wells Thompson to set up one goal and caught a bit of a break on a shot/cross that fooled Sean Johnson and found it's way into the back of the net to provide the difference in the match.

Schellas Hyndman, FC Dallas head coach

We played a very good team, and there's obviously a rivalry there. I didn't think we had a very good first half. We gave a lot of balls away. I didn't think we held the ball very well, but at the end of the first half we started doing better.
