Quotes from last night: Chivas USA

HEAD COACH – ROBIN FRASER: 

Thoughts on game: “First off obviously that’s embarrassing for the magnitude of this game to have the result fall the way that it did. It’s certainly not good enough. I think we started the game too tentatively and it just put us on the back foot from the very beginning.”

Moving forward: “It’s not like you can run and hide from these results, they are what they are, we have to move forward and, you have to really take accountability and be accountable for some of the things that went wrong. Through the four goals they were all turnovers, with little to no pressure and that’s not good enough for sure. In terms of our decisions with the ball they were not good enough; I think that there is plenty of blame to go around everywhere.”

GOALKEEPER – DAN KENNEDY: 

Thoughts on the match tonight: “We were outclassed, we were lucky we got out of the game with a 4-0 score. I am at a bit of a loss for words. They just have a lot of class on their team. If you give them as many opportunities as we gave them tonight then they are going to put away some goals, and that is exactly what happened. The result was not much different from the last time we played them and that is what disappoints me the most. We learn from this and move on.”

Missing element to be able to knock in goal: “I think it’s become a little bit mental now, it’s on our minds and one of the problems that we are having. It is very frustrating. I know there was a point in the match where it was only 1-0 and we had a couple scoring opportunities that we did not capitalize on. Those are the opportunities that we need to finish to stay in a game like this. When you do not get those you continue to open yourself up and push for a goal, and that is when they scored the second, third and fourth.”

DEFENDER – DANNY CALIFF:

Thoughts on match: “It looked like essentially the same game as last time. It felt like a track meet and we made the same mistakes as we did before. We had a couple really good opportunities in the second half and a good fifteen minutes but we just didn’t convert. We were not able to move the score up 2-1, and they just took control of the game again.”
