D.C. UNITED HEAD COACH BEN OLSEN

On the team’s first half performance:

“I will take this one. For this match, I think we had too many guys have a poor night, and I had a poor night. If you add that up against the LA Galaxy, and you’re down one-zero in the first couple of minutes, you’re in for a long night.

On the comparisons between this game and the game against Real Salt Lake:

The LA Galaxy sent a message to the rest of MLS on Wednesday night, piecing together another comprehensive performance, grabbing a quick lead and putting away Eastern Conference leader D.C. United, more or less, before halftime.

Landon Donovan, running the attack in Robbie Keane’s absence, set up all three first-half goals as LA (12-5-7) romped to a 4-1 victory at StubHub Center to grab the No. 2 spot in the Western Conference and Supporters’ Shield standings, just two points behind Seattle.
