I briefly (very briefly... thanks AT&T phone service) spoke with Fire Technical Director Frank Klopas after the Fire's 1-0 at New York last night. I only asked him one question before my phone crapped out, but I thought I'd share his response anyway.
Here's what he had to say:
"I'm a little disappointed that we lost," Klopas said. "I think my main concern going into the game was the fact that we haven't had a game in a while. I think it hurt us a little bit that we didn't play a game last week -- even if it [would have been] a college game against Notre Dame -- and I think it showed the first half when we weren't as sharp. But I think the second half was different game. I think we were a better team in the second half, we were able to move the ball better but unfortunately they scored a great goal [and that was all it took]."
Not really too much here, but I agree with most of what Frank had to say. The Fire certainly did look a whole lot better in the second half than the first, but they'll need that effort -- plus better finishing -- to get a win at Colorado next week.
