On the result

"We were there for each other to bail each other out.” Lewis Neal
Post-Match Quotes


On Luis Silva:

“He worked very hard in the first half. We asked him to be more involved. In the last two games, he just wasn’t touching the ball enough, and to get the ball, you need to work hard, pick up second balls, be constantly on the move, and he did a better job of that tonight. Obviously, he capped it off with a very good goal.”

On Bill Hamid:

On getting a good result

“Results are important in this business, it’s a good win, I’m extremely happy, I think the guys are extremely happy but I still think there’s a ways to a go.”

Ben Olsen – Head Coach, D.C. United

Thoughts on D.C. United players:
I thought Fabi trusted his teammates more than he did last game playing and moved well. I thought Eddie was a threat all night long up top. I thought Perry was fantastic and I thought Davy Arnaud, in particular, gave us a real bite and a real energy in the amount of second balls and breaks he started. You know, still stuff to work on with our backs, we should win games that we score two goals in.

D.C. United Head Coach Ben Olsen
On his conversation with the referee:
“It probably wasn’t the referee’s fault. We were a little outmatched physically and we put some guys in spot they are not use to. And I think you saw that in some individual plays at times.  But overall, it’s still the same old us. Good stuff, good quality, good build-up, but not enough killers in front of goal and not enough guys with the final savvy play to pull off a few goals.”
