MLS: Los Angeles Galaxy 1-1 Houston

Reactions post-game:

Robbie Keane – Galaxy’s captain

“We need to get better. We need to get better. We can’t keep carrying on [like this] every game. We know it’s three games in; I keep saying it’s going to take four or five games [to develop the necessary sharpness], but when you have a game that’s there for the taking, playing at home, get off to a great start and give a silly goal away — at this level that’s not good enough.”

“When we got the goal, we were good for about 10 minutes, and then we stopped playing. They got the goal, and they they got a grip on the game. They got fairly, I’d say, comfortable. They probably looked like they were a little bit the better team in the first half, but at home we should be certainly doing a lot better. …

“We’re disappointed. Of course, when you’re the champion, we have to understand we’re a team that people want to beat us all the time. And we have to accept that. The sooner we realize, the better, because we’re not going to get any easy wins in any game. People are going to make it hard for the Galaxy this year, so we need to make sure that we’re on top [of our game] at all times and make sure we’re not giving up silly goals.”

Owen Coyle -Dynamo Coach:

I thought bringing him in there and making it a strong three in the midfield on a very big pitch against a top team it was a formation that we could play higher up the pitch with a decent ball and Nathan did that,”

“We were certainly disappointed to give up such a soft goal because you think all of a sudden your game plan is out the window and we focused on it all week,” Coyle said. “We picked ourselves up. We scored a great goal on a set play we worked on and we honestly had a chance to add to that.”

Coming here is not easy, we can be happy with a point, but we still need to play better, move the ball more and put teams on their heels a little bit more
