"We had to score earlier. We suffered when we were having difficulties again. It's the the first time it happens to us. You can't make mistakes, whether the field is small of big. What's good in football is that there is always an opportunity to come back and answer, like with Tuesday's game. Sometimes it's better to play right after to move on. I will take the blame; maybe we should have stayed here to train."
"Ideally it would be great to train every day like the other teams. But we had our chances and there are a few moments where we lost the momentum. For two thirds of the game we felt good, controlling the tempo of the game. But then the momentum changed. We got to raise our games quickly with the game on Tuesday cause it's a push for the playoffs now."
"We could have done better. We fell back into our old habits of giving away cheap goals. New York came out and they had more desire than us and pressed us a little bit more. I thought we battled well and defended well in the first half, but we kind of collapsed with those three quick goals."
