CHARLESTON, SC - FEBRUARY 23: Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear looks on during the second half of a game against the Charleston Battery at Blackbaud Stadium on February 23, 2013 in Charleston, South Carolina.
I always say I love these games because this is the growth of Major League Soccer ... You don't want to go somewhere and there's no one there, you want to go to places where there's atmosphere, where the fans are into it, because it feels proper. I think the guys do enjoy going to these places. Don't get me wrong, it's not easy going there, but I think from a professional experience I think you'd prefer to go there than go to somewhere where it's not as fun to play.
We spent 15-16 minutes trying to bash down the door to get a goal and we came close a couple of times, but we didn't get it ... Obviously we would have loved to get more with the game tonight.
Obviously, they’ve made it a fortress and done exceptionally well there ... A couple weeks ago, I was talking to Dom (Houston coach Dominic Kinnear) on the phone and told him what a great job he’s done and his team has done defending their home turf.More quotes »
