Goalkeeper Matt Pickens following home loss to Dallas:

On the loss and the state of the team:
"It’s a little concerning right now. I think the way we’re representing our club on our home field is pretty damn embarrassing. We think we have something and then we come out with nothing, and it’s become a trend. Now we’ve got to dig real deep going on the road and hopefully we get something out of these games coming up, but it doesn’t get easier for us. But like I said, it’s embarrassing to represent the club this way."
 
On adding new players to solve the problem:
"I think it’s that we win as a team and we lose as a team. It was just a lot of players came from the left side and they came off some set pieces on the first goal again. We just lacked concentration, and maybe a little lack of hard and a little lack of knowing where our guys are at and thinking someone else is going to pick them up. I don’t know what it is but I’ve got to go back and look, but we just gave them the game again here and it’s unacceptable."
 
On his frustration level:

"You know this is the toughest stretch I think I’ve ever been on as a soccer player. But you can’t do anything but get back on the field and keep working. And one of these is just going to turn around for us, hopefully it comes on Wednesday. We’ve got a quick turnaround with the game on Wednesday. Right now it hurts but we’ve got to put that past us as fast as we can and start representing the club the way we should be."
