The Dynamo take on the Montreal Impact tomorrow at BBVA Compass Stadium with kick-off set at 7:30 pm. The game can be seen on Local 2 NBC Sports and heard on at Sports Talk 790.
Here are a few burning questions heading into tomorrow night’s game:
1.) DEEP LYING MIDFIELD ROLE
This is up in the air at the moment.
Of course Geoff Cameron was the best option here recently because of his long range distribution capability.
Adam Moffat has been injured as of late and had struggled in recent times during his play. He is questionable for tomorrow night.
Rookie Warren Creavalle got the start against Sporting KC and JeVaughan Watson should be fit as a potential.
The Dynamo are hoping to re-acquire Ricardo Clark from Germany as he is out of contract at Eintracht Frankfurt.
2.) WIDE RIGHT
Calen Carr responded to the start out wide in the 4-3-3 by scoring two goals and playing motivated. In order to accomodate him wide Boniek Garcia was moved central and was less effective but still played responsibly.
He did deliver the vital entry ball into Carr that led to his game winning goal.
One imagines things might stay the same tomorrow.
3.) MANAGING IT OUT
Playing a man up in some ways might have been even more challenging for the Dynamo on this night. When Peterson Joseph was ejected it defined Sporting KC’s tactics even more making for a tough night to break an opponent down.
When the Dynamo got the vital go ahead goal they at times were a bit strained in managing out the lead.
4.) POSITIONED WELL
The Dynamo with a majority of games at home, improved health, a new system and a more mobile squad are positioned well for this phase of the season.
I see a top three finish in the East but difficulty in signing another player in the transfer window due to the length of time the Geoff Cameron deal has dragged out with Stoke City in the EPL.
The target now is likely Ricardo Clark which means more competition in central midfield if he is acquired and more competition for playing time which is a good thing.
The Boniek Garcia DP acquisition has been wonderful for this time and it has had real relevance to on field performance, making the Dynamo more dangerous and bringing a freshness to the squad.
He proves that the signing of the correct player can really influence a team in alot of areas.
Opponents are now worried about a more mobile, dangerous Dynamo.
Come back tomorrow for a Dynamo/Montreal game preview.
