In a largely forgettable game, the Revs beat the Dynamo 2-1.

Why was it so unremarkable? Mainly because it was a generally sloppy game, a game that raises the further question: Why was the level of play so subpar?

On the Revs' side, possibly because coach Jay Heaps made a calculated decision that, with his team already in the playoffs, he could afford to start four second-stringers (Patrick Mullins, Steve Neumann, Scott Caldwell, and Darrius Barnes), while resting starters (Jermaine Jones and Charlie Davies).

The New England Revolution travel to play Chicago on Saturday, and it's still unclear if the team will have MLS Defender of the Year Jose Goncalves at its disposal.

Head coach Jay Heaps had no updates to provide on his captain's status after Goncalves was injured last weekend on a 38th-minute tackle that earned Houston's Ricardo Clark a yellow card.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!

After failing to score a goal in more than a month, and failing to win a match in almost two months, the Houston Dynamo were in desperate need of a result to turn around a slump that was threatening to send their season into a tailspin.

Sparked by the return of Oscar Boniek Garcia, and the insertion of Omar Cummings into the starting lineup, the Dynamo attack showed signs of life on Saturday that hadn't been seen in some time, and while there was no deluge of goals for Houston, Ricardo Clark's game-winning header felt like one.
