We spoke with Nerdy Gales at Center Line Soccer to talk about the San Jose Earthquakes and the game ahead during a busy stretch for both sides.
The Houston Dynamo are coming off of a needed 2-0 win over rivals Sporting Kansas City and are hoping to begin their first winning streak of the season against the San Jose Earthquakes and their former manager Dominic Kinnear.
Dynamo acquire targeted allocation money from San Jose for Sarkodie.
On Friday the Houston Dynamo completed a sign-and-trade deal with the San Jose Earthquakes for targeted allocation money. In exchanged for the TAM the Dynamo signed and then traded defender Kofi Sarkodie.
The right back had spent five seasons with the Dynamo but was not currently on the roster for the Dynamo.
The new season is upon us and we've got the schedule and a list of a few notable games.
A new season is nearly upon us as the offseason is slowly transitioning into preseason. While the 2015 season marked the beginning of the Owen Coyle era, there were many holdovers from former head coach Dominic Kinnear.
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.

With Major League Soccer and the rest of American soccer kicking off in just over a week we've curated an impressive list of players, personalities, broadcasters, front office folk, and fans to have them tell us (and you) about their upcoming 2014 season.
And, of course, pair their hopes and dreams for this season with a tasty local brew.
OTF's Stephen Mangat takes another look at the boys from the Bayou City...
The legend of St. George states that he killed a dragon which had been plaguing some city by nesting at the city's water source. The city's leaders had been trying to placate the dragon with a daily sheep with the hope that it'd eventually leave.
OTF's Stephen Mangatbrings you the classics and the contemporary in a look at the Houston Dynamo...
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.
Seattle Sounders have the good fortune of facing San Jose Earthquakes while Sigi has near full selection of his forces and while San Jose gives up more than two goals a game on the road (9 goals against in 4 played). While the Rave Green are struggling a bit at home, they still allow less than a goal a game against.
Here's an opponentpreview from reader Martin Tomszak to tide you over until kick-off tomorrow at 6pm. The Earthquakes are opening their branding spankin' new digs at Avaya Stadium so the Fire will have yet another debut party to contend with in order to avoid to the club's first ever 0-3 start to a season.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. â€“ Houston's Adam Moffat opened the scoring just over three minutes into the second half and a fortuitous bounce gave him a brace, as Houston took all three points on the road with a 2-1 win over New England.
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.
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.
