Dylan Remick, Cubo Torres score as Dynamo win over Red Bulls.
The Houston Dynamo were back in action on Saturday night against the New York Red Bulls after a week off. In their return to BBVA Compass Stadium the Dynamo came back with an expanded injury list which included Romell Quioto who dislocated his shoulder while playing for Honduras in their game against the USMNT.
We took a look at how people rated players' performances following the 2-1 win over the Sounders
Last Sunday I asked for help in rating the Houston Dynamo players' performances following their 2-1 victory over the reigning MLS Cup champs, the Seattle Sounders. The response was outstanding so I averaged out the ratings to give us more or less how we all felt about the game.
Houston started fast and held on to a 2-1 victory over the Sounders at home in the season opener.
In a season-opening matchup between the defending champion Seattle Sounders and defending Western Conference bottom-feeders Houston Dynamo, the champs were rightfully favored to win, especially with the return of Clint Dempsey.
Despite a late surge, the Seattle Sounders opened 2017 with a 2-1 loss. The Houston Dynamo dominated the first half. Their posture in the final forty-five gave Seattle hope. Sounders have yet to win in Houston. Clint Dempsey scored his first goal since 21 Aug 2016, but it was a goal for honor not a result.
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.

Austin Fido's CCL preview series moves on to Group 5, and offers more information on Guyana than is strictly necessary...
Group 5 comprises three teams who don't seem quite as good as they were when they qualified: the Honduran 2014 Clausura champ, Olimpia, has shipped out several of itsbigger names since securing aCCL berth; the MLS 2013 Western Conference winner, Portland, has probably got to win six or seven of its last 13 games just make the 2014 playoffs; and the Guyana Football Federation National Super League title holder for 2012-13, Alpha United, has been having problems with rain.
Romell Quioto, Erick Torres, and Alberth Elis only need 18 inches of daylight.
The Dynamo have a history of starting seasons high-scoring and fast but trailing off at some point in April and eventually falling back into the depths of the Western Conference. Last season, they went with the bold strategy of playing zero defense and going solely for goals in the first few games of the season, ending up with scorelines like 3-3 and 4-3.
Romell Quioto is already getting some national attention for his performance against Seattle
Romell Quioto isn't just impressing fans in Houston as his performance against the Seattle Sounders put him on the MLS Team of the Week. Quioto attacked the Sounders with his speed and with his dribbling while providing support to Cubo Torres and pressuring Seattle's backline.
He's the new "Grumpy Cat"ï»¿ ï»¿ DOWN AND ALMOST OUT? He came into camp seemingly "close" to being ready; he played for around 20 minutes in TFC's first spring friendly; he suddenly returned to Toronto for mysterious "personal reasons"; today, word is emerging that he is at least 2 months away from fitness and that even more dramatically - he may be on the verge of having his TFC career ended.
