Silence Says it All in Houston
Houston Chronicle, April 22nd, 2008 3:45PM

The Houston Chronicle says that the silence that came from the Dynamo players following Saturday's 2-2 draw against the L.A. Galaxy speaks volumes about the team's recent on-field performances. "The locker room was a quiet place Saturday, and that [the tie] is a point on the road," coach Dominic Kinnear said after a game in which Houston twice surrendered the lead.

Meanwhile, Kinnear doesn't need anyone to remind him the Dynamo is still the only team in MLS without a win. That said, a 0-1-3 start -- good for three points -- isn't nearly as bad as a 0-4-0 start, but it's certainly not the kind of opening that befits a two-time defending league champion. "We're not happy with the way things are," Kinnear said, referring to the erratic start. "We're having breakdowns in a lot of parts on the field, but we're also having great play in a lot of parts on the field, too. Consistency is a key word for us right now."

The Chronicle's Bernardo Fallas says the Dynamo can no longer use international competition, injuries and fatigue as excuses; this is a team that needs to start winning before its confidence gets any lower. But there could be light at the end of the tunnel, Fallas says, as the Dynamo ends a three-game road trip at Columbus on Saturday.
