Houston Looking Thin Up Top

MOST COMMENTED

The Houston Dynamo looks "alarming thin" up top with only week to go before training camp begins, says Bernardo Fallas of the Houston Chronicle. The two-time defending MLS champ lost starting forward Joseph Ngwenya to SK Austria Kaernten in midweek, while fellow forward Paul Dalglish was released late last year. Nate Jaqua, meanwhile, has been looking to move abroad. Combined, Ngwenya and Jaqua scored 13 regular season goals for the Dynamo.

That leaves Brian Ching and Chris Wondolowski as the only dedicated members left in Coach Dominic Kinnear's frontline. But the Dynamo isn't panicking -- and for good reason, says Fallas. There's plenty of time between now and the start of the season to find replacements. There's also the possibility that Jaqua re-signs. But the forward line will need reinforcements by early March, when the team begins CONCACAF Champions League play. Should Jaqua leave, the three departures will have freed up $275,000 in cap room.

More than likely, says Fallas, "the Dynamo will have to give up something to get something," as "MLS looks to be a seller's market these days as far as forwards go."
