In Quotes: DC United 2-1 NYCFC

All of the key soundbites from the away locker room following our narrow defeat to DC United…

Vieira on Passivity…

“I’m a little disappointed because…we were a little passive, especially in the first half. The way we went into the game wasn’t the right way and at the end we get punished.”

Wallace on Disappointment…

“We tried to follow our game plan and some things didn’t go our way, there’s somethings that we’ve got to change. Our performance wasn’t bad, but at the end of the day we have to come away with points.”

Villa on Errors…

“We’re not happy with how the game went. Really it was difficult for both teams: the field was very bad, the wind was difficult to play in for both teams, it’s not an excuse because it was the same for the both teams and well, it was down to seeing who could get a goal. We committed two errors, we gifted them the two goals.”

McNamara on Role…

“Last week we were tied up and we needed a goal, this week were down a goal when I came on and it is what it is. Obviously I want to be playing from the get go so whenever I have opportunities I want to do well for the team and I want to state my case: I deserve to be starting as well.”

Shelton on Moving Forward…

“We’ve got to move forward - it’s really early on in the season so we just got to watch the video and get back to what we do best. In this game, we didn’t stick with our gameplan in the first 30 minutes and it hurt us.”

Johnson on Pattern of Play…

“They weren’t really more successful; I don’t think there’s really much in it. I can’t really say that they were threatening our goal for a sustained amount of time so hats off to them for converting the opportunities, but I don’t think there was much difference in the second half. We should have been better as a collective unit.”
