The Dynamo's Alex will be a big factor on Saturday when Houston travel to New England.
The Dynamo flew past the New York Red Bulls last week on the back of an in-form attack, with Cubo Torres scoring three goals (you may have heard). Mauro Manotas played well in his first game starting as a winger, and Houston were able to create a ton of big chances even without Alberth Elis starting.
D.C. United looking into rediscovering their form after losing it last week was a bit of a need, made more so by missing several players to injury or illness. And the first 50 minutes or so was some of the more...interesting? in recent memory as they eeked out a 2-2 draw with the New England Revolution.
United gave up goals to start each half, but scored twice in the first half through Jeffrey and Le Toux
D.C. United couldn't have asked for a worse start in either half against the New England Revolution on Saturday evening. United conceded a goal to start each half, but thanks to goals from Jared Jeffrey and Sebastien Le Toux, United got out of Gillette Stadium with a point, in a 2-2 draw with the Revolution.

D.C. United couldn't have asked for a worse start in either half against the New England Revolution on Saturday evening. United conceded in the 5th and 48th minutes, but thanks to first half goals from Jared Jeffrey and Sebastien Le Toux, the Black-and-Red got out of Gillette Stadium with a point in an eventful 2-2 draw with the Revolution.
In this week's Opposition 11, we look over a Revs side that features a diamond midfield and a potent attack
Most of the talk surrounding D.C. United this week has surrounded injuries. The Black-and-Red will face the New England Revolution without Steve Birnbaum and Patrick Nyarko, and most likely Nick DeLeon as well.
Last week, we felt bizarrely optimistic about playing the New York Red Bulls on the road, and it turned out that we were dumb with that optimism. D.C. United lost 2-0, and in retrospect, we probably shouldn't have expected much more than that.
This week, we are still feeling relatively optimistic, but hear us out, okay?
Every season it seems like D.C. United is dealing with a slew of early season injuries, and this year is no different. Steve Birnbaum and Patrick Nyarko are almost definitely out, with Nick DeLeon a question mark and Patrick Mullins unlikely to go the full 90 minutes.
The San Jose Earthquakes' recent Goonie-like comebacks have been quite a spectacle, but the task at hand isn't about late comebacks in front of the home faithful. Rather, it's about getting something meaningful from a road match, something they've struggled to do for quite some time.
We spoke with Alex Gormley at E Pluribus Loonum to discuss the upcoming match between the Dynamo and Minnesota United FC

The Portland Timbers are back to their winning ways.
After two consecutive games in which the Timbers dropped points in the final ten minutes, Caleb Porter's side made sure that wasn't going to happen again. Up a goal heading into the final minutes, Darren Mattocks drew a penalty and Fanendo Adi broke the club record for all-time goals-scored with the resulting finish.
After yesterday's wind storm, things are a little crazy atound these parts. But, MLS waits for no man and the Portland Timbers are on the East Coast, set to take on the Philadelphia Union late this afternoon.
Who is in?
Today could see the return of Vtyas to the Timbers' lineup after missing several weeks due to calf soreness.
The Chicago Fire extended their unbeaten run to three matches on the heels of a dominant 3:0 victory over the New England Revolution at Toyota Park on Saturday. The Fire treated the Revs the way a dog treats a fire hydrant, and made them like it. Nemanja Nikolic scored twice to complement Bastian Schweinsteiger's opener, as the Fire climbed to third place in the MLS Eastern Conference.
The Chicago Fire's two big acquisitions combined to overwhelm the 10-man New England Revolution on Saturday.
Nemanja Nikolic fired a brace while Bastian Schweinsteiger addeda goal of his own in a 3-0 Fire win at Toyota Park. The win is the Fire's second-straight victory and third-straight match without a loss.
Dare they believe? This past weekend the Chicago Fire defeated Columbus Crew SC 1-0 on the back of a Nemanja Nikolic goal and what appeared to be a strong tactical display. A formation change, organizational fortitude, and an air of confidence saw them across the line in more ways than one with Chicago finding themselves in fourth place at the end of the week's matches.
At the beginning of the year I introduced a new way for the Dynamo Theory community to be a part of Player Ratings. After matches everyone will get a chance to submit how each player did on a scale of 1 to 10 which will be averaged out in a later article.
The Houston Dynamo were on the road on Saturday against the New England Revolution. Missing for the Dynamo was AJ DeLaGarza who suffered a calf strain that prevented him from playing with Boniek Garcia starting in his place at right back. Also, starting this game for the Dynamo was Dylan Remick who scored his first MLS goal last game against the New York Red Bulls.
Kei Kamara and Juan Agudelo grab goals to keep the Revs undefeated at home.
The New England Revolution are now undefeated in three straight outings, as they downed the Houston Dynamo 2-0 on Saturday afternoon. Kei Kamara and Juan Agudelo grabbed their second and third goals of the year to secure full points for the home side.
"It is very important for us that we won. This is the first consecutive win we have had since I have been here". Although Paunovic spoke those words with a sigh of relief, by the end of his post-match press conference after Chicago's 3-0 thrashing of New England, he was full of hope and confidence.
FOXBOROUGH The New England Revolution made a decisive move to improve their goalkeeping performance in February when they traded theirstarter of the past four seasons, Bobby Shuttleworth, to Minnesota United FC.

Despite the poor performances around all of the DMV's soccer teams, the Filibuster podcast is ready to go the full 90. Adam, Jason, and Ben have to talk about D.C. United's 2-0 defeat at the hands of the New York Red Bulls.
