Sounders FC 3, N.E. Revolution 0 — New England quotes

Steve Nicol – Revolution Head Coach

(On coming back down three to nil…) “The first two goals were just window strikes, at the same time we didn’t defend well. It is just school boy stuff; you don’t let a man behind you on a throw in. We were sleeping and let a guy get to the edge of the box. It was a great finish but we were contributing to our own downfall. It is tough to come back from that. The third goal is just down right bad defending.”

(On his speech to the team at halftime…) “I probably couldn’t repeat it. We came out and played better. We played so bad in the first half we would have had to come out better. There is nothing we can take away from this game that is positive.”

(On going into the break of the season…) “It is disappointing. We need to sit down with what we are doing and figure out how we are going to get results.”

Bobby Shuttleworth – Revolution Goalkeeper

(On playing in his first MLS game tonight…) “We didn’t get the result we wanted, I don’t think we played very well. We just have to keep moving on and put this behind us right away.”

(On the difficulty of playing in front of 35,000 screaming fans…) “I just tried to keep playing my game. Once the whistle blows the crowd is not an issue for me so I just tried to stay solid and help these guys out as much as I could.”

(On having a rough first start to his career…) “It was my first MLS start, it was good to get it out of the way and we can keep progressing and picking up some points.”

(On giving up 3 quick goals to start the game…) “It is never good to give up an early goal and they came after us right away. I just have to keep progressing and moving forward.”

Kevin Alston – Revolution Defender

(On giving up three quick goals…) “We just can’t come out and play that, with three easy quick goals we were chasing them all night.”

(On the difficulty of coming back after giving up a few early goals…) “It is very difficult, tough. We are down and away, with the crowd it’s just hard to fight back.”
