Roberts reports in

Troy Roberts' red card (due to two yellows) was something of the nail in the coffin for the Galaxy.

"The first one - we lost the ball in transition and got caught. You take a chance - you've got to stop either the ball or the man. I ended up getting him, which prevented him getting through, but at the same time, they had the free kick and that's what they ended up scoring off of. It wasn't the prettiest goal, but it found its way in. On the second one (yellow card), it was a foul, but it wasn't deserving of a yellow. But the referee made a decision with the sideline. He went over and talked to the sideline guy, and the sideline guy must have told him it was a yellow, but if you have to go and talk to the sideline guy, I don't know how you can make that decision and give me a yellow and send me off. That changes the game, too, putting us a man down when we were trying to get one back."

"We played a solid first half. We came out in the second half trying to do the same thing. Momentum is a very delicate thing. Once they got that first goal, the momentum was in their favor and another one came. We could have done a better job on both their goals, but I really don't know what else to say about it. It's tough."

"That's up to the guys up top - the bosses. I like Frank. I think he's a great coach. It would be sad to see him go, but that's out of our control."

"We want to win for Frank, but we want to win for ourselves, too. I don't think any of us feel safe if we're losing games and not having a successful season. There's going to be changes, like there has been. We're all trying to keep our positions and keep our spots. You can't get too comfortable. We have to get results and we haven't been getting them. We'll see what happens."
