Seattle Sounders v Houston Dynamo - Gamethead

New, 512 comments

The two sides have faced 6 times in League and Playoffs with a 2-2-2 record. Seattle has a win in US Open Cup play as well. While it is fun to hate on the opposition this is one of those teams with so many Sounders connections that the hate is muted, though desire for victory is not. Cam Weaver played at Skagit Valley CC, Seattle U and with the USL Sounders. Brian Ching also played with the USL team. Dom Kinnear played with the A-League Sounders. Tally Hall grew up in Gig Harbor.

These sons of the Sound can feel free to celebrate their continual returns, but not a win.

Today's game is on FoxSoccer for TV, and 97.3 FM for radio at 7PM

Opposing Looks (Dynamo Theory): Dynamo look to rebound

Keys to Game

  • Set-Play Plus/Minus - Houston has great service, so Seattle must defend well.
  • Strong Secondary Runs - Use speed of Steve Zakuani and OBW to create gaps for late runs
  • Pressure Young Keeper - Youth can make mistakes, force that to happen.

Matchups

  • Brad Davis v The Rain
  • Zakuani v Freeman/Sarkodie
  • Jhon Kennedy Hurtado v Brian Ching
