Months don't get much more dominant than the one the Houston Dynamo just had.
With a 4-0-2 mark, five clean sheets and wins over Eastern Conference contenders D.C. United and Sporting Kansas City, the Dynamo claimed SBI MLS Team of the Month honors. Led by the facilitating of Brad Davis, emergence of Mac Kandji and Calen Carr up top, successful integration of Designated Player Oscar Boniek Garcia and the goalkeeping of Tally Hall, the Dynamo sent a message to the rest of the league that the 2011 MLS Cup finalists are quite serious in their bid to contend for the league title.
Perhaps making what the Dynamo were able to accomplish even more impressive is that they were able to do it amid transfer speculation and the eventual departure of star centerback/midfielder Geoff Cameron.
The Dynamo, who at 7-0-3 at BBVA Compass Stadium are one of two teams still unbeaten at home (New York being the other) led a group of standout teams that included the the Philadelphia Union (4-1-0 including a win at Los Angeles, all following Peter Nowak's firing), L.A. Galaxy (4-1-1, 14 goals in six games) and Seattle Sounders (2-0-2, road draws at Real Salt Lake, New York, clinched place in fourth straight U.S. Open Cup final) to win the monthly honors.
What did you think of the Dynamo's month? Do you see them as a viable contender for MLS Cup even without Cameron?
