Address -- that he -- on CSN yeah. He dot com tour I think the revolution defeated the Columbus blue. The club record in this -- -- -- Jeff -- he would PGA joint isn't just a moment Geoff is that game there has been searching for a for a long time. They have they came out we said in the opening they need that balance -- offensively defensively they came out tonight it's motion together. Two well one good goal an own goal which still tape because there was pressure and then another shut out the real this is some that they can taking this break. And come out with a lot of confidence. -- let's throw it down to David metal bars with a grind I wish him happy birthday for the both a happy 27 birthday for a guy right getting old -- It's the same agent hand he knew that. Not a bad birthday approaching guys played really well today full ninety minutes. But what was the key for you guys you know I think we decide winner hands on nine I think he showed from the opening kickoff. Just think it's unfortunate are there every week as it was in -- present. Well at halftime you could hear it from out here the concourse there's a lot of cheering applause. It sounded like you guys are very energetic. Maybe also infuse a little energy because of a very good first -- was the message at half time. It was a continual we're doing you know we knew we were weren't conference and then in -- and you doing doing just that being on top ten and really push in the game. And you know I think we showed than we got a little right of the green which twin engine for quite awhile now. And it's just a really good feeling throughout the camp I think we showed a lot of cohesion. And ended -- tonight. For you personally it seemed like you ripped off a couple of shots that maybe there's an actual little juice to try to get maybe that monkey off -- your back did you feel like you could maybe try to leave these guys that first half it in the right direction. You know I'm in the position now. You know technically on the field -- -- to be doing that. And I really wanted to push the issue you know and it in the east lead to them that by example I think when they went and not mean we are in for him being positive with the ball. And you know and of being -- -- -- and force it Selig body language on the field at the end on the bench from the coaches was a sigh of relief exhale we finally got one after. After a couple of months that the feeling. We had a doubt and now it's you know we got one and I would like to taste and what's more Bryant thanks so much things haven't -- that Ryan got back upstairs. Thanks Dan running guy is a guy can plug into a lot of have different slots on the field and he does a creditable job. It does he -- he can you know up front and the back in the midfield he can do it all. You know -- he's utility player but he's qualities got a good soccer brain to puts himself in the right spots and -- can rely on how many hats. DA's next -- the guy did just about everything but score up front tonight for the rest Diego food is down here Diego a couple of starts a row now for you -- -- what's the difference for you when you started beavers coming off the bench. Only so many of you and more focus on on what you can do to help the team so -- amen. It's different in coming in that some hit many years sixty is what every come in. I think have more energy starting the game then -- coming in saying you have to. But anyway it's just have to have put the team that will walk in the field. Let's talk through some of the plays that you had on the field tonight a couple of shots in that first half. And then the second half -- really create. The second goal of the first bush should say is your -- went off the Kraft -- the post and they kind of all levels of the dirty work what was the key -- Was looking for the open spaces and while they're even thinking. -- -- he just came and -- school. -- was tell me that early in the season when you worked at the start you were -- for playing time he wanted more minutes he said. Look -- time will come and eventually comes got to make the most out of it -- is that kind of the feeling right now you want to be in this position and now make the most of it. Yeah of course and and -- person wants to start. Is hungry for this these two starts and I got -- I'm really hungry for -- here and help my team so. Most tone myself at practice I need to focus in on -- carving -- -- bombing finish and -- Seems like you and Jay have a really good relationship every time he can come off the field do you guys kind of bracelet but he has some words and easier for -- This year coach that you can relate to really learn some stuff from. Edge if one person that teaches you stuff. You know on the field now he has so it's one person and that person having axiom. You say we went over on couple plays that I had to see what I can do that yourself on I think that helped you need to dig -- -- to the -- -- -- -- is -- -- that. For good this guy aspect of stairs. Thank you DA were witnessing the growth of Diego for good and as as a professional player and gay couple starts in a row under his belt you can see the growth and impact how the game. Let's go back to the beginning of the match and the reds are really looking to get out of -- games. Full flow from the very beginning here Dmitri Alfonso. -- it for -- that's Nazareth. I don't know that left deformity but when that -- get thrown but both -- a good sign they wanted to go for the wanted to be aggressive. Whereas here it's for good -- again that. Sixers side volley added that is the highlight of the way he can do that youth and athleticism just let them. Then it good pressure in the midfield leads to the second ball falling for Ryan guy and hear him talk about you want to set a tone for a long shot. Any he has all year and -- -- end up in the air he wants to. You can't go ahead rip off. Second straight good game for Kevin Alston not. At right fullback at left back he almost scored here lately first -- did did -- force that -- -- by the keeper -- a little Jimmy opens up. Good deflection and did a great thing about. I was moving into the second -- still tied at 00. In the 53 minute but -- -- embargo combined very well to break the deadlock but in the it's dark chocolate girl and a -- like playing bombed out. For goodness does the dirty work -- get that up a good spot good react to get back up the block a field right there. The reds thought they made it -- nothing. In the 74 minute but Steve McCarthy just a little bit off side according today on the far side and -- goal -- -- so frustrated. But the revolution would indeed add to their league. Tierney the better back Chad Marshall gets his signals crossed that he's really evolved embargoed the pressure to zero. And then there has looking to make it to clean sheets in a row memories -- some great work Jeff. All the body heat for it becomes a strong he did your did a great reaction on that -- and it keeps his head in it another -- today it was left to keep the ball out. You can avoid the melee. -- in the end putting up his sixth shutout of the season the reds get their seventh win. Of the year. Your finals that's brought you by Budweiser or eight times or waiting twenty to seven shots directly to. In the end eight to three. -- had the advantage in shots on goal. The crew at the possession advantage than they their only two below -- at the end of that match point two fouls and all that you see the balance and more kicks well comprehensive win. By ago. Home team and what they had a lot of shots on goal -- spot for the first after a lot of shots from distance so. They definitely like you know I was asking for the needed -- more more numbers in the box and that's what it in the second half they followed up. He got forty salt -- he said he wants to win more involved. Probably. Warning minutes in that second half he started to take over the game and put a stamp on. Well one of our viewers to me to ask is so when I want to laws in the fall we don't have a definitive date yet. I just decided number number eighteen but according to revolution public relations. I know with the squad yet again -- international transfer certificate I think it through but he's the visa approval as wells with a Colombian. Not in the fold. Let's take a look at the reds upcoming schedule they get ten days. All down. Because of the the international. Date for World Cup qualifying. And their back. Action at DC united at home vs new York and then threw away games are tough way venues as nine. -- September. Early October knowledge stuff at -- -- -- in Philly and every team is buying her you know for spots in the playoff berth -- New England would love to be spoilers here at the end of the season. The revolution not mathematically eliminated from the post. You saw there that the reds are really playing each play for individual prize each or Matt. And certainly it's it's easy to the crisis where we're sort of in this industry and the wheels to -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Or let's go down at Jay -- press conference. Houses of course it was just nice and once in the first half and some street -- you know just as good plays tough road and felt like which I think the guys came out and it really was blocked there's enough hard just as -- opportunities and I and it kind of some trees you know and alternate years -- and more time notes it's. There wasn't much more than a lot of guys -- and knowing it's not easy there. Two runs and had I don't know if there's any different that we did just that if he wants to wash even in the first half and felt like grandma had. Mom it was saves and made some good plays. He felt like you were so. He was going to be there who knows he knows can find his size and -- -- -- -- students you know work over the years he has. You know it's it's Patriots -- There wasn't much more than a lot of guys -- a lot of heart in knowing that it's not easy laughter when you had to. To run and then on Angela -- way. I was really happy to answer -- -- -- he. Chad Marshall was part -- -- the issue played very well. He did. Just you know a lot of guys its nice that passengers pick up the scheme defensively working -- me he was was all you're doing that tonight. I'm a critical and it was painful game. Yeah in a game. Close within teams never thought of him on his excellent work he. Could he battled. Chad Morris is obviously extra bonus money back. Quickly so it doesn't care and scored and Dmitri just -- and inserted him why challengers. There's just exhausted our times in my opinion -- streets of old time. It's been -- -- -- -- our post post game press conferences for our team that -- now has ten days -- where -- honestly -- united FC. The action on Comcast sports.
