Last mid-week game of the season. Gotta find a way. At least Muyl and Davis will be fresh.
This post is dedicated to all the slow defenders of the world. Godspeed! my brothers

We need massive rotation here. I don't even want to see certain people in the 18. It really showed how tired everyone is.

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

Houston is one of 5 MLS teams with only one road win this season. We need 3 points from this game.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Houston hasnt won a league game since July 7th and hasnt won a road game since May 20th. Need heavy squad rotation, but still no excuse to not pick up 3 points here.

Seems drastic but probably about right after 3 in 8 days. Maybe Rza starts this one and misses Canada again.

Adams probably needs rest at some point as well. Don't want to Felipe him for the playoffs.

Cant really disagree, other than keeping Murrillo in there since he got to sit out the Smurfs game

This is a brutal stretch and I thought wed see a little more roatation already.

Breaks two of my rules though: never sit BWP and Kaku at the same time and never rotate more than one guy out of defense.

Entire Dynamo season is coming down to winning the USOC final at home against Philly on September 26th.

Now sure how this one's gonna play out. But it's HOU during the reg season, so this should be a W.

This is the game we should have some significant rotation. 

 

BWP can't start, he's piling on a ton of minutes.  Same with Parker, Taxi, or Long.  

 

 

I go with this:

 

----------White----------

Ivan----Kaku-----Muyl

------Davis--Adams

Lade Escobar Parker Murillo

 

Would be a very good game to get Ivan a start and at least 75 minutes.  He needs a regular shift to really feel what the system does and what his teammates do.  He has some things to like to be honest.  I'm actually encouraged with him.  Good quicks, willing.  Nice length and willing in the air.  Certainly willing to take guys on the dribble and we don't have much of that.  Vision not great, but not garbage either

but that first touch... ouch.   Any guy who gets a month-long look in practice and gets signed makes me believe he has to be pretty good, and that ball BWP waste was fantastic, but so far, overall... very rough

BWP, Long, and Murillo are top priorities for some rotation for me. BWP has still looked himself but Armas has to be proactive managing his minutes. Long and Murillo have both had a few lapses in focus during this stretch and look like they could actually use the rest. Plus if we want any chance of actually keeping Escobar around he needs to start getting some minutes.
