Here are a few miscellaneous quotes from Fire players on SuperLiga and Nery Castillo.
On SuperLiga win vs Pumas:
"It brings everybody's spirits up. At the end of day we've won nothing, you get a win and it boosts your confidence."
On the team's attitude:
"The last two games it was good. It's not going to change over night. It's something that needs consistency, just like on the field we need consistency. The last two games have been good. The guys are starting to work for each other and fight for each other, but it's two games and we have alot more games to concentrate on."
On his play:
"I know time flies but it was seven weeks ago when I actually played. I'm just a little frustrated because as a striker you want to score." "Maybe Saturday against New England I should have played 45 minutes and take a rest to play 90 today."
On Nery Castillo:
"He's kind of the same player as Pappa. I know him from my time in England. I've seen him play a few times for Man City. He's a tricky guy, small, quick behind a striker. I think Pappa's a kind of similar player. I'm very happy he's coming on board. We need that kind of player on the team. He's a high class player."
On the win over Pumas:
"We have to take the positives. We're eliminated but winning today at home should lead to more."
On his goal:
"More important than the goal was the win so we could get some confidence back."
On playing despite being already eliminated:
"That's football. They had something to play for. In the first half we were better and in the second they held the ball and had some chances but we got the result."
On the improvement from game 1:
"I think every game is different. This hasn't been a typical year for us. In years past we've some good seasons. This win is important to regain confidence so we can go forward in the last 15 games and get into the playoffs."
Does the team miss Blanco on the pitch:
"Temo helped us greatly. I don't know that he would have made a big difference right now but he's a player that can create problems with the ball at his feet and space in front of him."
