The Houston Dynamo are in need of a statement game coming off a poor 4-1 defeat to the LA Galaxy which was a signifying moment of the season following a few lack luster matches previously.

What we learned from the Dynamo's loss to LA.

We constantly heard last week about how discouraging the Houston Dynamo's draw with Seattle was, but looking back on it after Friday's game with the LA Galaxy, it seems like a great result. A 4-1 loss at home to the Galaxy, which never really was in doubt beyond LA's equalizing goal in the fourth-minute, was very, very disappointing to say the least.
