United News & Notes
Greetings from RFK.
Here's the latest.....
*Jaime Moreno, on the heel injury that kept him out of Sunday's stirring victory at the Meadowlands: "It was pretty sore and going to New York I don't think the turf would have helped. We decided it was best for me to stay. The weekend it was still sore, the last couple days it got a little better and today it's better. We have to be careful because these things sometimes play games with you. I have to feel 100 percent to be sure."
Starting this Saturday, United will play three matches in eight days: home vs. Dallas, at Kansas City and home vs. Toronto.
Moreno watched the 3-2 victory on TV with family and friends. At the end, "We all went crazy. I almost smashed a lamp above my head!"
Did you think United had a chance to come back?
"Well, no, when you are 2-1 down with three minutes to go, but you never know what will happen when you wait until the last minute. When Luci scored, then you think, 'Okay, we go for a point,' which is better than losing. Then the third goal comes and it's great -- a great win."
Keep reading this thread for comments from Ben Olsen and Chris Pontius .....
*Olsen, who left early in the second half: "I feel good. Everyone is a little bit achy from the turf. It does a number on you physically. It was hot too so it makes the turf less forgiving on the feet. It was a recovery day for a lot of guys [today]. We had yesterday off. [On Sunday, the ankle] just didn't warm up. I got through a half and it was okay -- it didn't feel the best but I felt like I was still helping the team. Second half, after 15-20 minutes of sitting, it just stiffens up. It happens on grass but warms up again. This time it just didn't. It's nothing to be alarmed about, just normal stuff I've been dealing with."
*Pontius, who was limping badly after the game: "My feet, just blisters from that turf. I think everyone's feet are killing them. It was 114 degrees on the field at one point; it's going to cause problems."
More in a bit.....
