Darren O'Dea (footballer)
ORLANDO, FL - FEBRUARY 23: Referee Jorge Gonzalez ejects defender Darren O'Dea #48 of Toronto FC during play against Sporting Kansas City in the final round of the Disney Pro Soccer Classic on February 23, 2013 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida.
It's down to the players on the pitch and maybe a little bit of mental toughness when it comes down to it ... Maybe we need to really, really analyze where things are going wrong, because you can't just keep putting that [down] to just another one and it'll not happen again. It's happening. It happened through last year.
I hate saying that we should be a lot higher in the league than we are, but that's a waste of words really, you are where you deserve to be and we're just where we deserve to be ... If you take away the last two [or] three minutes of games, we're probably near the top. But the last three are just as important as any minute in the game, so it's something we need to put right.More quotes »
