(On Jeff Parke . . .) “We saw how he was today, he couldn’t train today. So chances are probably not good that he’ll play but we’ve still got two days so we will see.”

(On San Jose Earthquakes . . .) “Obviously San Jose went into a place where nobody expected them to win. For sure New York, I think, had more of the game, more of the game territorially. But if you finish your chances well, you get an early goal, helps your momentum, great individual goal by [Bobby] Convey on the second goal where he beat Tim Ream and then [Chris] Wondolowski off a great service. Even though they got dominated in possession and all those stats favored New York, it’s all about finishing goals. It certainly shows us that it’s very, very possible.”

(On Sunday’s match . . .) “We’re excited and I think we are ready tactically. It’s one of those things. Their tactical game plan last time was set a certain way, they got a goal and it worked for them. If we would’ve finished our chances then everybody would’ve said their tactical plan was bad. That’s the way it is. For us, it’s a matter of creating a similar amount of chances that we did the last game. If we can put 15 shots, if we can put 8-10 shots on goal and force [Donovan] Ricketts into saves I think we will get the goals we need.”

(On the Galaxy’s game plan . . .) “It depends. They are also at home so you get a little more excited at home to want to try and go forward and you’re playing in front of friends and family.”
