More Post-Match Quotes [ASN Philly-Provided]

Posted on 30 June 2010 by Breton Bonnette

As a supplement to what the team provided…

Sigi Schmid (Seattle Sounders Head Coach)

Q: When do you expect [Swiss international striker] Blaise [Nkufo] to join the club and what did you think of his World Cup?

A: Well, Blaise can’t play until July 15, so that’s when we expect him to be able to be on the field for us.  Obviously [Switzerland] got off to a good start with the win against Spain, but then the World Cup didn’t turn out the way they had hoped for.  But, he’s going to help us winning Cups.

Piotr Nowak (Philadelphia Union Head Coach)

Q: On his continued belief in goalkeeper Chris Seitz.

A: Well, you guys [the media] put a lot of pressure on him in the first couple of weeks, but as I said, this is a work in progress, and we’re going to do the best job we can to put this team in the right direction.

Shea Salinas (Philadelphia Union Defender)

Q: On his role in the game today & finding the balance between his defensive responsibilities and pushing up to create while playing at the back.

A: Well, I know [Seattle Forward Steve] Zakuani, who I was kind of marked up against, likes to stay high, so I gave him a lot of room and came in behind him.  In the first half, we went down the middle a lot, but we talked about it at halftime and starting going wide, and I think that opened it up a little so we could go back down the middle.  I was just fortunate to get the ball at the top a bit and put some crosses in.

Q: How were you able to contain [Seattle’s forwards] today?

A: They have a bunch of dangerous players:  Zakuani, [Freddie] Ljungberg , [Fredy] Montero.  We knew that we were just going to play them physical, we knew they were going to fall as much as possible [to draw fouls], we didn’t care about that, we played them tight.  They got one break on us from a little counterattack, but besides that, I don’t think they were very dangerous.

Q: How has the team improved since the first time you faced Seattle?

A: Well, we’ve had more time together: we’ve had games, we’ve had experience.  Also, we had a home crowd today; playing in Seattle last time was tough.  We’re definitely a lot smarter defensively now, knowing when to attack, not forcing too much, taking our time a little better.  I think the coaching staff has just done well fixing our mistakes, and hopefully we can carry it through the next 19 games.

Q: On coming out onto the PPL Park field for the first time.

A: When we first came out, it was an unreal feeling.  It was a little emotional: during the national anthem, everyone was singing, I was just thinking about how fortunate I was to be there.  I started to choke up, held back some tears, it was an unreal feeling.  I just felt so blessed to be in this atmosphere and playing this game.

Q: On going right back on the road to Los Angeles to face Chivas USA this week.

A: Chivas is a good team, they’ve been a good team ever since I’ve been in the league, for 3 years now.  We’ve got to go down there and play solid defense and play with the same type of physicality [as today].  We’ve got to play away like we play at home: being physical, with some fight.  Hopefully, we can do that.

Q: With the heat and humidity out there, I see some exhausted faces, but you look pretty fresh.   How does your running background play into it [Shea ran track in high school as a distance runner] and can you talk a little bit about how the conditions were out there?

A: I’m not gonna lie: I was pretty tired out there at the end; maybe more so from celebrating than from running.  It was hot, but it’s so easy to run when the crowd’s with you.  I do have a running background and consider myself pretty fit, although the last few games, I don’t think I’ve showed that.  Tonight, with the crowd behind us, we were all able to push to the 92nd minute and I think we did that.

Q: On his continuing development as a defender.

A: I don’t think I had a great game against Kansas City, but this game, the coaches helped me out a lot.  I haven’t played back there much, so we had a little Defense 101 this week and that helped me out a lot.  I need to play more aggressively back there; I’m used to playing in the midfield, where I don’t necessarily have to be the aggressor, so I’m trying to do that a little more.   I like the position when I can get forward a bit, but it is what it is.

Q: Yeah, as you said, you have usually been able to get forward from the back, but today it seemed like you were concentrating more on your marking responsibilities.

A: Yeah, Zakuani is a dangerous player, my goal was not to let him come inside.  He got in behind us one time and punished us, getting an assist, but he didn’t really do much else, which was great for us.  I think I got forward more than he did, and I think that’s a result of how we played.  We were pushing a little bit higher on the field, and that gave me a lot more space.

Jordan Harvey (Philadelphia Union Defender)

Q: Last time you faced this team in Seattle, you gave up a couple of goals early.  What was the change in tactic at the back to prevent that kind of thing from happening today?

A: Teams have actually gotten a few goals early on us, so we’re definitely trying to keep the zero up there.  I thought it was unfortunate to give up the goal in pretty much extra time there.  That was definitely something we want to stop in the future: goals early on and goals at the end of the half.  That was a big letdown; we shouldn’t have done that.

Q: At the same time, you seemed to be pressing up more, even getting an offsides whistled on you in the 1st half.  So, how did you balance you pressing up and it looked like Shea [Salinas] staying back a little bit more than usual for him.

A: Yeah, Shea actually got forward quite a bit in the 2nd half; I was on the ball a lot in the 1st half, so I pushed forward.  I felt like we had them going the whole 1st half, we were unfortunate to give up the goal at the end.  So, yeah, I was on the 1st half and kind of held back in the 2nd half.  It’s just whatever’s on.

Q: On the stadium.

A: The atmosphere was unbelievable; it was great.  18+ thousand; it was unbelievable.  The Sons of Ben were great and you couldn’t ask for anything more.

Q: On the conditions.

A: It was tough.  In the 1st half, I definitely felt it, then in the 2nd half, I was in the sun, so I started to get really tired.  Like I said, I was pushing forward more in the 1st half.  Because of the heat and everything, I kind of toned it down in the 2nd half so I could save my legs for defense.

Mike Seamon (Seattle Midfielder & Villanova alum)

Q: On playing in his first MLS game.

A: It was great to get my first regular season MLS game.  It was a great experience to get into this.  It was good to get in, but tough to take that result.  It’s upsetting.  It was definitely a bittersweet day for me.  It’s nice that it’s on the minds of the coaches to get me in there [with being back in Philadelphia and close to his native Rahway, New Jersey].  At the same time, it’s upsetting that we took that loss.

Q: On how he feels he played.

A: I felt alright out there.  I lost possession a couple of times in the box, which is a terrible time to be taking a chance, so I have to do better.  Other than that, I thought I looked pretty strong out there.  It was tough, because once I got it, a lot of the guys were running out of gas, so it was tough to get going offensively; I would have liked to have provided a spark there.  It’s definitely a good start, though.  Getting in a game is a start to a career.  I’m happy to get in, but the loss is tough to take.  Next time, we need to win the game.

Defender Shavar Thomas off to Kansas City

Posted on 30 June 2010 by Breton Bonnette

Not quite Dave Myrie-quick but Jamaican defender Shavar Thomas is off – only four months into the season – to Kansas City for his second stint with the struggling Wizards. Thomas gets the tag of second former Union player.

To many, Thomas was almost a virtual lock for the Union as a starting central defender in the early goings. After all, the veteran has over 25 caps for the Jamaican National Team and over 150 games of Major League Soccer experience working for him. Instead, Piotr Nowak opted for a little bit of pace with Michael Orozco in the middle next to captain Danny Califf. A move that left Shavar entrenched on the bench.

Thomas was last with Kansas City in 2004. In return, the Union picked up allocation money (undisclosed) and a couple of 2nd round SuperDraft picks (one in 2011, one in 2012). Overall, a smart move for the Union as Orozco and Califf have improved each game out as a central partnership. Arrieta and Harvey also have the ability to move inside if need be. Thomas’ hefty salary was a bit much to pay for someone with only 35 minutes of time this season.

What do you think of the move? Sad to see Shavar go? Do you think Coach Nowak is in the market for another centerback?

WPS Picks 2010 All-Star Teams, Playground Style

Posted on 29 June 2010 by lbarker

On Monday night at STATS in downtown Atlanta, GA Women’s Professional Soccer held a one-of-a-kind event in preparation for the league’s 2010 All-Star Game. The game will take place on Wednesday June 30th at KSU Soccer Stadium, the Atlanta Beat’s brand-new soccer specific home on the campus of Kennesaw State University in Georgia.

In 2009 the WPS All-Stars faced off against Umea IK, topping the team that plays in the Swedish Damallsvenskan 4-2. For 2010 the league decided to go with a different and very unique format – pitting 36 of the leagues top players against each other in a schoolyard style game. To kick of the festivities WPS held a Pick ‘Em event at STATS where the two team captains, along with their coaches, picked their teams playground style. Fox Soccer Channel color commentator Jenn Hildreth MC’d the event.

The Washington Freedom’s Abby Wambach and FC Gold Pride’s Marta were chosen as team captains as they were the top two vote-getters in All-Star balloting. Abby’s XI, coached by Philadelphia Independence coach Paul Riley had the first pick – and went with a goalkeeper, US National Team teammate and Atlanta Beat ‘keeper Hope Solo. Marta’s XI followed suit, and along with coach FC Gold Pride Coach Albertin Montoya, chose Sky Blue ‘keeper Karen Bardsley with her first pick. From there the teams went back and forth, adding to rosters that had already been stocked with reserves selected by WPS Commissioner Tonya Antonucci.

Here are the picks – starters are listed in the order they were chosen:

Abby’s XI: Abby Wambach (F- Washington Freedom) (c), Hope Solo (GK – Atlanta Beat), Amy LePeilbet (D – Boston Breakers), Tina Ellertson (D – Atlanta Beat), Cat Whitehill (D – Washington Freedom), Shannon Boxx (M – FC Gold Pride), Heather O’Reilly (F – Sky Blue FC), Lori Lindsey (M – Philadelphia Independence), Lori Chalupny (M – Atlanta Beat), Enoila Aluko (F – Atlanta Beat), Lauren Cheney (F – Boston Breakers) // Reserves: Angie Kerr (M -Atlanta Beat), Karen Carney (M – Chicago Red Stars), Kelley O’Hara (F – FC Gold Pride), Laura Kalmari (M – Sky Blue FC), Tasha Kai (F – Sky Blue FC), Jillian Loyden (GK – Chicago Red Stars) // Coach: Paul Riley (Philadelphia Independence) // Not available due to injury: Kate Markgraf (D- Chicago Red Stars)

Marta’s XI: Marta (F – FC Gold Pride) (c), Karen Bardsley (GK – Sky Blue FC), Rachel Buehler (D – FC Gold Pride), Allison Falk (D – Philadelphia Independence), Brittany Taylor (D – Sky Blue FC), Kelly Smith (M – Boston Breakers), Sonia Bompastor (M – Washington Freedom), Aya Miyama (M – Atlanta Beat), Kristine Lilly (M – Boston Breakers), Christine Sinclair (F – FC Gold Pride), Ramona Bachmann (F – Atlanta Beat) // Reserves: Christie Rampone (D – Sky Blue FC), Becky Sauerbrunn (D – Washington Freedom), Amy Rodriguez (F – Philadelphia Independence), Erin McLeod (GK – Washington Freedom), Alex Scott (D – Boston Breakers), Cristiane (F – Chicago Red Stars) // Coach: Albertin Montoya // Not available due to injury: Caroline Seger (M – Philadelphia Independence)

“Coaching the World All-Stars almost is unbelievable. I mean, the amount of talent that will be in our locker room tomorrow and Wednesday is fantastic” said Abby’s XI Coach Riley. “It’s just a matter of natural ability. Let ’em go, roll the ball out, roll the dice, and see what happens. It’s an amazing amount of talent on the team.” The first year WPS coach, whose Independence currently sit in second place in the standings, just a point behind league leaders, Montoya’s FC Gold Pride, continued on about the level of talent that was available, “Me and Abby look down the list and we’re going ‘it doesn’t even matter who you pick next’.”

After all the selections were made, both coaches lobbied for a trade. According to Riley, Montoya wanted Kelley O’Hara, who plays for him on Gold Pride, and he wanted Amy Rodriguez, who plays for him in Philadelphia, but the players weren’t having it. Once the official proceedings ended players socialized and signed autographs for fans before heading back to Kennesaw.

On Tuesday morning both teams went through a light training session on opposite halves of a field just off the main pitch at KSU Soccer Stadium. Marta’s XI starting ‘keeper Karen Bardsley took a knock when she came out for a cross during the training session and spent the rest of the practice off the field with her shoulder wrapped in ice. It’s not clear whether Bardsley, who currently leads WPS in clean sheets (5) and goals against (.90), will be available for Wednesday’s match. “You can get hurt walking across the street or coming out here” Montoya said of Bardsley’s apparent injury. He stressed that it didn’t occur on a reckless play.

Riley had predicted a 7-5 scoreline after the selections were made on Monday night, and then followed that prediction up with this one: “That might be an underscore. I think it might go even higher than that…I don’t think you’ll see a lot of defending going on on Wednesday night.” But after the practice session both coaches were singing a slightly different tune. “We were having our issues scoring. The first finishing game we were gonna play up to ten goals, then I brought it down to eight, then I brought it down to six” Marta’s XI Coach Montoya said after practice. Ultimately though, he wasn’t worried “I think we were just kind of saving it for tomorrow.”

The 2010 WPS All-Star Game will air on Fox Soccer Channel on Wednesday, June 30th. Coverage starts at 7:30pm ET and kickoff is slated for 8pm ET.

ASN’s MLS Best XI, Week Twelve

Posted on 29 June 2010 by Breton Bonnette

With the World Cup in its latter stages, Major League Soccer resumed and the crowds did not disappoint. Even in Toronto, where all hell is breaking loose, 18,000 plus made it out to watch what unfortunately turned out to be an utter stalemate. The story of the week, however, was the opening of PPL Park. A packed house, fresh off the disappointment of the USMNT crashing out in the Round of 16, were treated to a Union come from behind victory. The vote for ASN’s Player of the Week came down to two strikers less than 100 miles apart – the Union’s Sebastien Le Toux and RBNY’s Juan Pablo Angel. Read on to see who came out on top…

GK: Nick Rimando, Real Salt Lake – 8.5

Nick’s quietly impressed anyone paying attention to Rio Tinto stadium, as he’s been solely responsible for RSL’s strong run of form. Nick has saved late attempts on goal in the past two matches and seems poised for another solid post-season performance. – Patrick McShane, ASN Real Salt Lake

DEF: Ike Opara, San Jose – 7.5

In tandem with Bobby Burling, rookie Opara helped return the Quakes to fine defensive form as they left Salt Lake with a vital point. Going up against an opponent that have a 16 game unbeaten streak at home is not easy, especially coming off a 2-week break for the World Cup. Opara and Burling looked solid in defense and got in the way of plenty of Salt Lake chances, making Jon Busch’s debut with San Jose just a little bit easier.

DEF: Shea Salinas, Philadelphia – 7

The pacy option to prevent Montero from running wild like he did in the opener and to especially guard against rising star Steve Zakuani, becoming more and more confident at the back with every passing appearance.   For the first time, really seemed to take on primary defensive responsibilities and showed himself to be the aggressor.  Started to push forward in the 2nd half, with Jordan Harvey staying back.  The highlight of his forays forward was the clipped ball towards Moreno that drew the foul call in the box that resulted in the penalty kick and the Union’s first goal. – Sam Toma, ASN Philly

DEF: Carlos Mendes, New York – 7.5

Rarely made a bad tackle. Disrupted the Kansas City offense and stayed composed throughout the full 90. It’s pretty interesting to see him making his first Best XI of the year. He has been on the fringe of the squad for so long that even Red Bull fans are starting to forget him. This performance will ensure Hans Backe gives him a second look or two throughout the rest of the season.

MID: Javier Morales, Real Salt Lake – 8

Despite the scoreless draw, Morales again put in a solid performance and probably deserved something better as he continually put RSL in position to score but wasn’t rewarded in the end. – Patrick McShane, ASN Real Salt Lake

MID: Fred, Philadelphia Union – 7

Played at his consistently solid level, providing useful touches around the box.  A bit more aggressive in the last third this match than in those previous, getting 2 shots on frame, both quality scoring chances (the second of which was the 79th minute goal off of Sebastien Le Toux’s corner kick).  Came off to a standing ovation and several “we are not worthy” salutes in the 81st minute. – Sam Toma, ASN Philly

MID: Bobby Convey, San Jose – 7.5

Convey’s efforts didn’t materialize into anything showing on the scoreboard but his work kept Real Salt Lake from attacking all game at Rio Tinto Stadium. Salt Lake pushed their unbeaten streak at home to 16 but Convey made sure at least San Jose was going home with a point. He has become the engine of a revitalized San Jose squad, possibly warranting a thought or two when it comes to All-Star voting.

MID: David Ferreira, FC Dallas – 7.5

El Torito had a hand in both Hoops goals that kept the FC Dallas momentum mounting. It was his corner that hit off Chivas USA fullback Ante Jazic to put Dallas up and his converted penalty that put the game away. Ferreira also did the dirty work off the ball – drawing fouls, throwing himself into tackles. Hoops fans are starting to see consistency and a lot of that can be attributed to the play of Ferreira.

MID: Sebastien Le Toux, Philadelphia – 8.5

As always, led the attack, but 3 shots on goal in the 1st half did not seem to overly worry Keller.  This all changed in the 2nd half, first putting away the equalizing penalty kick in the 54th minute, then becoming the point guard on the break.  Playing at midfield to accommodate Danny Mwanga’s recent addition to the first 11, Seba’s work rate really produced results in the final 45 minutes.  In addition to taking 6 corner kicks of the 8 Philadelphia created,  he was able to be the link between the midfield and the attack that this team has been looking for.  Direct involvement in all 3 goals and really should have had 2 assists, but for the fact that Mwanga’s was technically unassisted due to the fact that it was off the rebound – Sam Toma, ASN Philly

FWD: Juan Pablo Angel, New York – 8.5, ASN’s PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Angel made Aaron Hohlbein look silly on more than one occasion and helped deliver the Red Bulls a post-World Cup break win. His brace sealed a 3-0 win that may or may not spell the beginning of the end for Peter Vermes in Kansas City. Angel’s goals were his 7th and 8th of the season, scored in a span of 10 minutes. Could a partnership with Thierry Henry be on its way?

FWD: Emilio Renteria, Columbus – 8

Regardless of an atrocious Guillermo Barros Schellotto handball, Emilio Renteria put in one of his finest performances as a member of the Crew. The Colombian terrorized the right flank and clanged the shot off the post that led to Schelloto’s goal.

 

On to Week 13! We should have an interesting read up on the Best XI of the first 10 games of the season sometime soon. The World Cup break did us in for a while. Better late than never though.
