Dynamo fan or not. Regardless, if you where there to cheer on the Houston Dynamo or not you probably felt disgust with the first half of this game. It was uncomfortably quite in BBVA for the first 45mins. I could not believe that we would even allow TFC to score a goal. Reminds me of a an old saying, "not the size of dog in the fight but the fight in the dog". Well we got a little bit of that from both side of the pitch.
Lets begin with the line up. So was it a resting players night or was it a Toronto doesn't have a chance night? Watching this game gave me that nasty feeling I got when watching the San Antonio game that I actually almost choose to travel to. I was stunned at the way we were losing possession of the ball at every part of the field. It almost felt as if we were the ones in last place. Still I kept my heart in the game as it beats in my chest. What was the deal with changing the line up because we are playing a bad team. I believe that if its not broke don't fix it. God forbid if we had lost this game. We would all be here calling for heads to roll. These are the kind of games that you DO NOT lose. So why downgrade the lineup? Why even give Toronto a chance in hell to win? Are we the going to be the nice guys of the league like our MLB counter parts and finish last. We all know that is exactly where nice guys finish. Take a look at our NFL counterparts the Texans. They have changed their mindset and now you hear other players in the league calling them "dirty". Dirty why? Because they make sure they hear the whistle before they stop the play? Don't get me wrong, The Dynamo are no push overs but we can not allow teams to come into BBVA and think they have a shred of hope in winning. We have to play whistle to whistle and not allow them any ground. Not sit back and go through the motions. Maybe Dom should let them re-watch the final from last year so they can remember the pain they felt when we lost. Start the starters and win the game, especially when your at home. All I am saying is that we have a tradition of winning here and that we should not steer away from that tradition.
