During last night’s Dynamo All Access with Glenn Davis, Dynamo Chief Operating Officer Chris Canetti spoke of a number of interesting topics and made it clear that the Dynamo will likely enlist LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham to help them in enticing a designated player to Houston. It is no secret that Beckham played a part in helping to bring Thierry Henry to MLS and the New York Red Bulls.
AEG head Tim Lieweke has made it clear to the Dynamo that they have the resources to go out and get a designated player and he has also made it clear that he would like that player to be one that is impactful both at the gate and on the field. The Dynamo are currently putting a list of ten potentials together to submit to Lieweke.
The Dynamo also will have the opportunity to build their squad via the draft. With a first round draft pick in the MLS Superdraft in January, the Dynamo could also utilize that as a way to potential bring in a player that can be impactful from the get go from the college ranks. Could the Dynamo find another gem like Geoff Cameron. First round draft picks that come to mind this year that have grown since coming into MLS include Tim Ream of New York and Danny Mwanga in Philadelphia. Last year LA bolstered their squad with two picks from Maryland in Omar Gonzalez and A.J. De La Garza.
Canetti also spoke about the ground breaking of the stadium.

Take a listen to the podcasts at Sports Talk 790. The three hour block including interesting thoughts from FC Dallas President Doug Quinn, Dynamo manager Dominic Kinnear, Sports Illustrated’s Steve Davis and more….
JUST A THOUGHT…….. The Dynamo attack this year has been less than dangerous overall. Strikers Brian Ching, Dominic Oduro, Cam Weaver and Joseph Ngwenya have combined for a total of 10 goals as the main stable of strikers for the Dynamo. Now to be fair, the overall service and support for strikers this year has lacked. Throw in a goal or two from Brian Mullan when he as moved up front as well.
Two former Dynamo players Kei Kamara now at KC and Chris Wondoloski at San Jose both have scored 8 goals this year. For those two, change has been good.
