The Dynamo add experience with the signing of veteran forward Vicente Sánchez
The offseason moves continue for the Houston Dynamo as Head Coach Wilmer Cabrera has reunited with the latest signing, Vicente Sánchez. The veteran forward brings experience to the Dynamo's young core of players as he's played in several clubs in South America, Mexico, Germany, and in MLS with the Colorado Rapids.
Of the select few promising young players currently in the Houston Dynamo organization, striker Mauro Manotas is the most prominent of them. He earned a starting job under Wade Barrett late in the 2016 season at the age of 21 and finished tied for the most goals on the team.
Out of all the envisioned turnover this offseason, Manotas seems to be the one player who is sure to stay for 2017.
An athletic, lockdown defender, George Malki was a huge part of the Toros' success in 2016.
RGVFC had one of the best defenses in the entire USL. A big piece of that puzzle was George Malki. The third year professional built on the successful beginning of his career with Arizona United, after being drafted in 2014 by the Montreal Impact.
With the hiring of of Wilmer Cabrera the Dynamo front office has made a good decision.
Wade Barrett has been a long term member of the Houston Dynamo. Bringing him on as the full time head coach would have been a feel good opportunity. Everyone is happy when a member of the family is rewarded for their dedication and hard work.
Will Bruin is right: Wade Barrett deserved the job.
The Houston Dynamo should have kept Wade Barrett as their head coach. That seems to be the sentiment of many fans, and that feeling was expressed on Twitter by both current and former players. I agree with Will Bruin, Sheanon Williams, Stuart Holden, and Geoff Cameron: Barrett did what he could in an unfortunate situation and deserves to be rewarded for it.
Stefan Frei, Osvaldo Alonso and Clint Dempsey all among questionable players that start.
There are only two less-than-ideal starters in Saturday's lineup against the Columbus Crew SC. Gustav Svensson is filling in for the still-injured Brad Evans and Will Bruin is in for Jordan Morris, who is out with a minor ankle sprain described as not "serious or long-term.
Recovery time for Zachary Herivaux, Xavier Kouassi presents challenge with March 4 season opener looming.
Add Zacahery Herivaux to the list of midfield uncertainties for the Revolution.
Per a report from Revolution Senior Writer and Editor Jeff Lemieux, Herivaux will need "several weeks" of treatment after suffering ankle and knee injuries during last week's match against the Houston Dynamo.
The Houston Dynamo selected Joe Holland, Jake McGuire and Danilo Radjen in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft.
The team kicked the draft off by trading the fourth overall pick in the SuperDraft to Portland Timbers FC for the 10th overall pick, $100,000 in General Allocation Money and a 2017 International roster slot.
MLS hosts their Superdraft tomorrow at the NSCAA convention in Los Angeles, the first two rounds of the draft will take place tomorrow with the third and fourth rounds taking place Tuesday next week via conference call. Sporting KC have two picks in the draft, one each day. Tomorrow, KC's lone pick is in the first round, the 14th overall pick.
Why selling Will Bruin was the right move for the player and the club.
Longtime Houston Dynamo star Will Bruin — a player who has made over 170 appearances in orange and has scored exactly 50 goals — was traded to reigning MLS Cup champions Seattle on Friday in exchange for General and Targeted Allocation Money.
The Houston Dynamo have announced that they have traded Will Bruin to the Seattle Sounders. The team will receive Targeted and General Allocation Money in exchange for the forward. As with all GAM and TAM deals the details of how much money was exchanged has not been released.
On Monday, the Houston Dynamo announced that Rob Lovejoy was among the players who did not have their contract options picked up. On Tuesday, Lovejoy took to Twitter to announce that he would be retiring from soccer at 25. The midfielder is originally from North Carolina and will be returning home after accepting a job back home.
The Houston Dynamo declined options on five players while picking up options on five players.
The time has come for Wilmer Cabrera to start turning the Houston Dynamo roster into his own roster. The Dynamo's new head coach and the front office have announced their first round of moves with the players who were on the 2016 roster.
