Quick match Recap: Houston Dynamo 4 - 0 RBNY

This is gonna be quick, as I remembered that last night was Thursday and ESPN2 had MLS. I switched over from the USA vs. Columbia match just in time to see both of the first half goals that Houston scored. Damn did Houston look good. That game last night could have easily been 6-0.

DC United travels to Houston this Sunday evening to face the defending MLS Cup Champs. Considering that Boswell should be in the starting 11, our defense shouldn't be as soft as the Red Bull defense was last night. I am worried about the heat though. It killed several of the RBNY players and most of them lost their drive in the first half. I hope Soehn has the guys hydrating right now.

Houston looks like they have sorted out whatever it was that was causing them to suck; RBNY seems to have caught that bug and are a far cry from the club that was dropping 4 goals on clubs and shutting them out. As tight as the East looked, it appears that DC United & New England are the ones starting to pull away. Houston & FC Dallas are looking more and more the class of the West, but Chivas is looming and even though they look horrible, LA has got to be considered a dark horse, with Donovan returning, Pavon coming into the fold, and I heard they are getting an English midfielder who can cross.
