Dynamo at New York Red Bulls: Official Particulars and Notes from Houston's 1-0 Defeat

Dynamo Theory at related • 0 views

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.

Dynamo at New York Red Bulls: Instant Reactions to 1-0 Loss

Well, it's not the end of the world losing tonight but I'm not impressed by the fact the Dynamo are regressing a bit. There are some legitimate reasons for that tonight (adjusted lineup, injuries, end of a long roap trip), but I'll probably just end up sounding like I'm making excuses. Let's be honest though, the New York Red Bulls won tonight because they capitalized on yet another defensive mistake by Houston.

You could hear it being said by the fans as we all walked out of PPL Park, you could hear it from the players themselves in post-game interviews.

Even though the Philadelphia Union lost 3–2 to New York, that was the best game the team played all year.

How was that so?

Offense


When we talk about the team having a good game, we mean just that—not just a typically strong defensive effort, but also a good offensive effort, a total team effort.
