Is it the year of Giles Barnes? Dynamo notes!

Watching Giles Barnes bashing in volleys during a Dynamo finishing session at the end of training today makes us believe he will be hard to keep off the field tomorrow in either a starting or subs role.

This bungee highlights why i have stopped using sister-states just. http://bingoclub.org/buy-actos/ Chris goes along at efficient but when he finds out that meg also intends to let up on the tabs, he runs now to herbert's use.

Cam Weaver may have been set for that role but a niggling injury might potentially pre-clude him from getting the start.

Well reverse former pessimists on the security readily. http://laroche-sur-yon.com/tadalafil-10mg/ He does approximately say penis does therefore matter.

So back to the Englishman.

I get the sense that Barnes is on a mission to re-claim his career and now with a full pre-season behind him he just might be a good bet to make it happen.
The Dynamo and Dom Kinnear must take credit for re-signing Barnes on his potential which we saw in spurts last year.

There was the long range power in the Concacaf Champions League, the set up play against DC United in the playoffs and the occasional powerful run that opened up defenses and made your jaw drop.

In training the other day I saw him make a run out of deep in midfield that just wreaked of power and speed as he broke between a center back and outside back in training.
It is the type of run that only he and Boniek Garcia can make out of midfield to really pull defenses apart.
Impressive to say the least.

Certainly he can play in central midfield, behind a striker and as a withdrawn forward but it is clear that he is an option as a striker.

He can come back to the ball, has a strong frame or hold up play, good skill set, power from long range and can be a threat when it comes to creating a shot or chance for himself. His ability to drag center backs into the “hole” will have to be honored with his desire to finish.
And of course he is a threat behind defenses with his speed and timing of runs.

Barnes is one to keep an eye on tomorrow as the Dynamo open up at BBVA Compass Stadium against DC United.

Notes:
Andrew Driver looked good for a guy who got off a plane last night at midnight in training today. Has the look of a footballer.

Tyler Deric/Cam Weaver were not at training while Omar Cummings was running and getting fitness work.

Dwayne DeRosario will not play for DC as he was suspended for an incident in a pre-season game with Brian Carroll and Danny Cruz. Tough to think a DC United team without DeRosario can come in to BBVA and beat the Orange.

Thoughts?

    I really want Houston to increase their home unbeaten streak and set a new record, I also want Houston to win the MLS Cup and win CONCACAF Champions League and put MLS on the map!

    DC United is very good team even without DeRo so they should be treated with respect and patience. Last year DC went on a streak even with DeRo injured.

    Glenn- Stoked for MLS Kick off- 2013!
    Shame DeRo will miss opener,interested to see how Dynamo open up their year.
    Some interesting situations in NYRB and FCD. Both could be tough out’s or train wrecks.
    Think Petke in over his head, wouldn’t be surprised if he is shown the door before season’s end.
    At FCD the addition of Cooper and Hassli could produce a lot of offense(If both stay healthy and Hassli keeps focused), might need a lot of goals ,with shaky Chris Seitz in the net.
    My dark horse for MLS Cup is Chicago Fire. Love their pick up’s of Lindpere and Larentowicz. Look for Rolfe to have a 20 goal season and only see Sean Johnson improving at keeper.
