1.) ARE YOU GOING?
Simple, are you headed to the game or are you still concerning about Covid in stadiums?
If not are you watching on channel 55 with the pre-game at 6:30?
2.) STRIKERS THAT NEED TO PRODUCE
Both teams that have strikers than need to score goals in October. This month will be pivotal for all MLS teams and the Dynamo have a critical stretch here early and often with their next 4 out of 3 at home.
This stretch and a few wins can begin to make you feel playoff bound.
Mauro Manotas needs to show up on the scoresheet while Alan Pulido the former Tigres and Chivas striker looks set to return tonight. He also has been called up by Mexico for a friendly in the Netherlands in 4-5 days and may, I say may miss the next 3-6 Sporting KC matches.
The system that Tab Ramos and Peter Vermes plays is similar with the goal to be proactive.
Each coach adds his own tweaks through positional instruction, personnel and dealing with counter attacks in transition which will play a part in this.
These games are for the most part combative, exciting and dramatic.
