In the aftermath of losing a close final match, which was heavily biased towards LA in this writer’s opinion, the Dynamo are gearing up for yet another run at the cup. This season comes along with a breath of fresh air in the form of a new stadium for the club. BBVA Compass Stadium looks to open its doors to the Dynamo in April. It hold 10,000 less seats than its predecessor, Robertson Stadium, but boasts unobstructed views and a more intimate, yet convenient atmosphere.
The Dynamo recently added fifth year MLS veteran Mac Kandji from the Colorado Rapids to help out at forward. Last year Will Bruin had a lot of responsibility on his shoulders as just a young forward and would still get those 2-0, 3-0 wins. The addition of Kandji definitely helps an already potent offense. Bruin and Kandji both scored on Tuesday in a friendly against San Jose.
Kofi Sarkodi, the Dynamo’s first pick and seventh pick overall in last year’s Superdraft, has been named to the U23 MNT which should get the young defender some great international experience as the MNT drew Group A for the 2012 CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
Brian Ching will rejoin the team this season after a stint in Montreal. According to their website, the team acquires their former star and team all time goal leader for a 2013 draft pick. My favorite part of the deal is that Ching comes back to Houston to take a pay cut, but is guaranteed a front office job after he retires. I swear, soccer has some of the best trade deals you can ever find.
