QUOTES

 

SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES HEAD COACH FRANK YALLOP

 

On effort:

“I’m a little bit lost for words to be honest. I was not happy from the opening whistle. I didn’t see commitment or fight from anyone. We will have to take a hard look at the team and make some decisions for next week. We need to come out with more energy. One thing that I always want to see is fight and that wasn’t there today.”

 

On game:

“Chivas were way better than use to be honest, and they deserved it to win the game. We have to compete better than that at home and get some results. It was a really poor performance by us, collectively and individually.”

 

EARTHQUAKES MIDFIELDER SAM CRONIN

 On team performance:

“The way we’ve approached the last two games is unacceptable. We have got to get better. We have to take a long look in the mirror and take responsibility. We did that all last year and we have the core players from that team back. We all have to step up and change things now. Whatever it takes, we have to make things better.”

 

On a change in lineup:

“If you’re in the lineup and you lose two straight, you should fear about your spot. The last two games we really didn’t show up; last week we did not play well at all and we were outplayed again today against Chivas. It’s our job to go out there and play hard, represent the club well and win; we just aren’t doing that right now and maybe it takes a shake-up in the lineup to solve it.”

 

EARTHQUAKES FORWARD CHRIS WONDOLOWSKI

 

On team confidence:

“We’re obviously disappointed and frustrated. I feel like we still have confidence in each other and in our team. We believe we can turn it around. With that being said we still have a whole lot of work to do to keep getting better and turn this thing around.”

 

On offensive strategy:

“You throw away that New York game and we scored in every game. We’re creating a lot of chances, but we just aren’t finishing them as we should. Maybe we aren’t being as dynamic in the final third as we should as we’re missing on our finishing touches. Until we fix that, we’re stuck playing a numbers game by just throwing bodies at the opponent.”
