Word has the Houston Dynamo close to signing a striker currently playing in Argentine.
My understanding is that the striker is young, tall and moves well off the ball. Apparently the players mobility is somthing that has also caught the eye of the Dynamo.
Now when signing players from overseas there is no guarantee as to how well they will adjust, this always remains the x factor and one only has to look at other signings around MLS over history that didn’t pan out or took time for the player to adjust.
World Cup winner Denilson was a bust in Dallas yet won World Cups. You get the point.
Last year DC United acquired Fred from Brazil and were smart enough to give him time to adjust to MLS and he became an integral part of their midfield.
*Arsenal/AC Milan in today’s Champions League ought to be an interesting one. Dynamo tonite on ESPN Classic taking on Sydney FC at 12:30 AM.
*Check podcast from last night’s Dynamo Power Hours with Glenn Davis on 790. The show includes interviews with Dynamo coach Dominic Kinnear (listen to what he has to say about Chris Wondoloski, it might surprise you), former Galaxy and U.S. coach Steve Sampson, UH Womens coach Susan Bush plus Nat Borchers of RSL who played a few seasons in Norway.
*Still mind blowing that the Pan Pacific Cup is being played on such a poor artificial surface.
Now I don’t want to hex the situation but can you imagine if Beckham were to get injured on the fake stuff? What about Brian Ching or others for that matter. My hope is that all the players come out of this tournament injury free. Like the concept but I consider it very risky right now especially after what Beckham and MLS went through last year.
And by the way, who is really going to take these results seriously?
*Let me know who you would like the show in the future. We are getting close to getting the Dynamo Soccer Report on Channel 55 up and going again. That is the plan.
