They ve had some injuries which has given different players a chance to play. Dax McCarty is having a really good season for them- he makes a lot of things happen. A lot has been said about Connor Lade and the energy that he provides. Sometimes a spark of energy is just what a team needs and Lade has done that for them many times this year. MP One byproduct of the unbalanced schedule reintroduced in 2012 is the increase of games against conference rivals and a scenario like this with consecutive teams against the same team. Is that a good thing that playoff position is settled on the field with the increase in conference games Xs&Os with dominic kinnear Q U ESTI O NS BY MATT PED ER S E N dK Well I think it showed its importance during our three-game homestand when we caught up to a couple of teams that were ahead of us. Sometimes the best way to catch a team is to play them head-to-head. It s difficult in one way because if the games don t go your way the gap is wider but on the other side if you get something great out of it you pick up those points. You always want destiny in your own hands every time you step on the field. Matt Pedersen The Red Bulls added Tim Cahill from Everton on July 26. Cahill 32 has been a fixture for Everton (226 games) and Australia (55 games) since 2004. What do you like about the midfielder doMinic Kinnear Well he scores goals and is good in the air. His timing is very good whether it is attacking crosses or playing off the forward. He s always aggressive in the box. I think he plays it simple at times and then when the ball is in dangerous areas from what I ve seen he picks his intensity up a gear and he has a desire to score. MP Thierry Henry has 10 goals and six assists in just 14 games this season. What qualities does Henry have that make him difficult to defend dK He is a wonderful player we all know that. He is a great passer of the ball he can take you on the dribble he can shoot from distance and is great on free kicks. He has everything that you want from an attacking player. You have to make sure that when he gets the ball you try to deny his space so he doesn t have an impact on the game. MP New York is having a better season in 2012 (11-5-5 38 points through July 27) that it did in 2011 (10-8-16 46 points) and has already surpassed its win total from a year ago.

A smile from Senegal macoumba Kandji helps sparK dynamo unbeaten run BY MATT PEDERSEN It was the third week of preseason for the Dynamo and with the club training in Southern California head coach Dominic Kinnear made a trade to add depth to a team that reached the 2011 MLS Cup Final and would return its core. Kinnear acquired forward Macoumba Kandji from Colorado on Feb. 8 a move that didn t generate much buzz at the time but now appears to be a key ingredient to Houston s seven-game unbeaten streak heading into Friday s showdown with the New York Red Bulls. At that time of the preseason we needed another forward Kinnear said. We watched him over the years and we ve always been impressed with how he can change the game on his own. He is technically good on the ball is a good athlete and can be a force when moving forward. Kandji a six-foot-four attacker from Senegal had to wait for opportunities to play early this season not starting a match until the seventh game of the season at New York on May 9. He found his form as summer arrived when he finally regained full strength in his left knee after he famously tore his ACL setting up on the game-winning goal for the Rapids in the 2010 MLS Cup Final. The Dynamo shifted to a 4-3-3 formation for its June 30 meeting with Philadelphia allowing a third forward to play up front. Kandji received the call as the third attacker joining Dynamo leading scorer Will Bruin and new arrival Boniek Garcia. The Dynamo are unbeaten since the formation tweak with a 5-0-2 record that has brought them from fifth place in the Eastern Conference to a tie for second a point behind New York. Kandji has started all seven games during the unbeaten run. He tallied an assist in the 2-1 win over Philadelphia that began the streak and recorded his first two-goal game since 2009 in a 3-0 win over Montreal on July 21 to cap a perfect three-win homestand. I think he has been confident and has been given a good run of games said Kinnear about Kandji s recent form. He always provides a moment or two in each half when he is either on the verge of setting up a goal or scoring a goal. He seems to be enjoying his position out there wide left and it has paid dividends for him. Kandji who turned 27 on Thursday was born in Senegal and moved to Gambia as a child when his mom immigrated to the United States and found a position in a hospital. Kandji moved in with his aunt and cousins and considers both of the bordering countries on the West African coast to be his home nation. We have family in both countries so it was a very easy transition Kandji remembers. When I was growing up in Senegal I d always go to Gambia for summer vacations. When I lived in Gambia I d take summer vacations to Senegal. Kandji played soccer in the streets of Gambia with his friends and cousins who were like family to him. We are very close as a family Kandji said. My cousins I don t call them my cousins I call them my brothers and sisters because we all grew up together. Growing up Kandji often fielded questions about his last name which reminded many of a Senegal national team defender. The inquiries were accurate as Macoumba s father Sharif Kandji played for Senegal s national team in the 1980s. One of Sharif s teammates on the national team was Oumar Sene the father of current New England Revolution striker Saer Sene. Kandji moved to the United States at age 17 and attended high school in Charlotte N.C. Next Kandji played soccer at Georgia Military College a junior college two hours southeast of Atlanta. Kandji would sign with the Atlanta Silverbacks of the North American Soccer League in 2007 and scored enough goals to attract the attention of the New York Red Bulls. After a loan in 2008 Kandji signed with New York before the 2009 season and had four goals and five assists in 23 games. After his breakout season of 2009 Kandji scored just one goal in 29 games between 2010-11 a bittersweet span marred by the ACL injury but highlighted by the 2010 MLS Cup title with Colorado. Kandji s career revitalization hit its crescendo with his two-goal game against Montreal on July 21. After opening the scoring with a deflected goal in the seventh minute Kandji delivered the signature moment of the perfect homestand with a breathtaking run from midfield for his second goal. Kandji covered an estimated 50 yards in just four touches from the midfield line to the center of the Montreal box as he beat three defenders before rocketing a shot into the roof of the net to seal the 3-0 win. I got the ball at midfield and I thought It is late in the game and my legs are dead right now but I m pretty sure their legs are gone too Kandji said. As soon as I got the ball I knew I was going to go to goal. As teammates ran over to celebrate the goal with Kandji he flashed his trademark smile as wide as the border between Gambia and Senegal. The smile does not fade from his exterior in good times or bad. The large grin is something you expect from Kandji like his occasional variations of his braided hair. When asked what makes him smile so often his answer is simple. Not everybody is blessed enough to have a job that is their hobby he said. I just thank God for this opportunity. My parents give me a lot of love and that contributes to me being happy. When you have a supportive family and this beautiful job a lot of people wish they were in your shoes. I m not going to take it for granted. I m going to take it with two hands and I m going to smile as I go because life is fun. keeP uP WItH YOur teAM ON tHe Web lIke uS FOllOW uS HOuStONDYNAMO bbVAcOMPASSStADIuM HOuStONDYNAMO bbVAcOMPASSStDM cHeck-IN At get All-AcceSS At ADD uS tO bbVA cOMPASS StADIuM HOuStONDYNAMO.cOM INSIDer YOur cIrcle The speed of AT&T covers Houston.

Proud Partner of the Houston Dynamo At participating McDonald s. Limited time offer. 2012 McDonald s. kickin it WItH will BrUiN wbruin You went to Indiana University for three years before being drafted by the Dynamo. What was life like in Bloomington Indiana It was awesome. It was a big campus. We had a good soccer team with a great basketball team on the rise. I met a lot of people and made some great friends there. Talk about the transition going from Bloomington Indiana to Houston Texas. That was a bigger transition both soccer wise and moving wise. When I was in Bloomington it was only a three-and-ahalf hour drive home but here it s a two-hour plane ride. But I m finally settled in here. I recently moved into a new place downtown and I m starting to call Houston home . What do you enjoy doing away from the soccer field I love to golf except not so much in the summer months. But I love to get out on the course and try to forget about soccer for a bit. It s fun to do something I m not so great at. I ve been improving though. I recently bought some new clubs so I m trying to keep more balls in play. What s the best part of your golf game If I can keep my drive straight I can hit the ball pretty far. On each day something different is clicking. If I can keep my drive straight my iron will be bad. My short game definitely needs a lot of work. Who was your role model growing up Sports wise I would have to say to Michael Jordan. Just the way he carried himself and everything he did. I still remember the shot he hit with the flu. He is a competitor. He loves to win and that is the mentality that I carry with me. 31 PlAYer Q&A if i could win an olympic gold in any event it would be ... the olympic athlete i m most excited to watch is ...
