Colorado Rapids Forward Edson Buddle following the 1-0 road win at LA:

On scoring a goal for a third consecutive game:
“For me, I’m a striker. I like to give the team a goal and then get going. This year there’s been a lot of ups-and-downs so to get myself going feels great. For the team, it was big. We needed these three points because the standings are really tight and to do it on the road, in this place, is not easy so we just have to build on this and keep going.”

On playing against his former team:
“Not only do I like playing here, I like coming here in general. It’s a great city. Before I got here, I always liked playing here so to play here and comeback it’s still the same feeling.”
 
On next week’s game against FC Dallas:
“It’s good to be at home because of the altitude. Right now, like I said, all these games, because the standings are so tight that every point counts, we just want to capitalize on being home. They are not an easy team. I think we were up 2-0, last time we played them, and they were able to get an equalizer so we have to build on this game. We will enjoy this win and get better during the week.”
