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.

We were three points clear of Arsenal, but they had a game in hand, so this match was a must win. Ideally, we could have done with quite a few goals too because our goal difference was superior only by three.

Donovan Could Do It

There's precedent for a Landon Donovan comeback to soccer, though mostly in a different sport.
In a way, it's comparable to how Michael Jordan retired from basketball to play baseball for a while before coming back to basketball.
