The Dynamo have done well to start the 2017-2018 offseason, but now they face tougher decisions.

The offseason has treated the Houston Dynamo well thus far. They re-upped Alberth Elis and Juan David Cabezas on full transfers, crucial successes that reaffirm their 2017 core, and they re-signed Eric Alexander just before free agency hit full gear.

Today is not going to be easy for D.C. United. MLS teams have faced this precise deficit in twelve aggregate situations, and only two have advanced. No one has pulled it off since 2004.

HANOVER, N.J. As the New York Red Bulls warmed up for their match against the Seattle Sounders this past Saturday, Eric Alexanderwas informed of something neat by teammate Dax McCarty. It turned out Alexander was just moments away from earning his 100th career start in MLS, an admirable achievement and one that speaks to his durability and versatility.

After another lackluster fist half, the Red Bulls roared back and handed the #DOOP boys a 2-1 loss @The Cathedral of Football. A much needed victory for our boys, with Thierry Henry and Lloyd Sam finding the back of the net. Philadelphia pulled one back late, through a penalty (committed by Sekagya - who saw Red on the play), and it was a very nervy 17 (or so) final minutes.

The Biggest Highlight Was The Post-Match Streaker: New York Red Bulls 0-0 Philadelphia Union

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

It was without question a very ugly game. It was far from the Union's best performance of the season. But thanks to the back line and MacMath, the Union were able to hold on for a 0-0 draw at Red Bull Arena, their first ever road points against New York Red Bulls.

The first half was a rather slow affair not consisting of a lot of good chances.

When the tests returned on Tim Cahill's banged up knee, the New York Red Bulls learned that they would be without a leader on the team and one of their best players this season for up to a month.

It shouldn't be much of a surprise that the New York Red Bulls, with stars such as Thierry Henry and Tim Cahill on the team, are in a tie for first place in the Eastern Conference.

What is surprising though, is that the standout player in the last few weeks has been right midfielder Eric Alexander.

Eric Alexander joined the Timbers in August of 2011 after successful rookie and sophomore campaigns with FC Dallas during which he scored two goals in 39 appearances.

The Red Bulls beat the Revolution 2-0 in a game the losers deserved to win, by every statistical measure. This only goes to show, unfortunately, how critical a couple of bad mistakes can be in deciding the outcome of a game.

The first goal, in the 17th minute, came off a Lloyd Sam free kick that was headed in easily by a totally unmarked Eric Alexander.
