Cronin: 'Our success in the regular season doesn't mean much now.'
Sam Cronin isn't looking ahead with the David Beckam, Landon Donovan, and the L.A Galaxy in town.
The midfielder from the -- and Conan joining us here on chronic easy huge chronicle like -- my dad. Who is a huge fan won nothing went in LA late goal. Stoppage time goal. You guys have done it ten times that she does it say about the way you guys can come back tees yeah I mean this has ever or -- -- never give up give up I'd -- for -- Our fit team we're a deep team so is keep our new guys on keep running keep fighting in. I'm we've we've worn teams out the season which has been dad was a little bit of a feel -- period in the first half of that game we didn't have much there as many early chances and then things wrapped up as the game. Yeah I think has easily -- -- Klesko. You don't want concede early for sure he got tightened things up and defensive tightness in organization's -- early -- in the match and then. As the game goes in and you learn how to how the team down the team's lineup that strategy. You kind of go from there the match of the year and analysts in the regular season was at Stanford stadium 40000 plus. 43 win for the quakes comeback win but it was -- it was an ugly game and I don't mean dirty in the nasty sense although maybe it was up there you're the guy running around you part of it to you when Beckham got into a pretty good these teams don't like them to do it. Now now Adam. -- know -- -- -- I mean if you go back ugly history before I was imminently mean these two teams have been good teams in -- championships and that heated rivalries and -- our success this season is kind of -- that. And yes it's been it's been on -- ever -- on them so you guys are up one nothing and this is aggregates going if you look at thank. That we're looking right now until scrum that happened that match in Beckham lobs when you're down hurt in the six yard box and Beckham lobs one you. What was going on there. Yeah I was actually I wasn't a night I was just got a clear that Heather and I got this kind of a little brush it and I hadn't gone so I was actually getting up right at the moment. And here I guess you're aggravated with that delay in the game of late late in the games here's unhappy about being inducted bombings bleacher did I mean has an eight there's no question about question. He drew yellow on somebody should have been suspended for more than what he got to have for that went anyway getting back you guys go up one nothing. Is going to be a little cautious in this one you guys are ahead right now is it hard to pull back and be a little cautious because I think you guys are more of an aggressive we are now we're not held back group we. -- -- tournaments if you don't think. We need to get when he got to Alex if they score early it's it's all tied and an assist in a soccer game so. These are Evangeline jump on and really be aggressive how would play best off season so. The fans to come out when I guess it's go after Galaxy with a lot of weapons what are the biggest concerns when you play. Yeah and I think the first off. If he gets a lot of attention and rightfully so -- Beckham's free -- we can't get until 2000 and they're on our box on. Because -- -- with -- are gonna be written. -- honest defending university and not get lazy with what's the home advantage like buckshot stadium. To smaller venue for the fans are right on top of the field -- what does that advantage for you guys because you're so that didn't lose of a match at home. This -- you look at a whole loss that was a game at AT&T park you guys are perfect and -- and oh yeah the fans are brilliant. And then bit tight to tight say in the that is -- isn't -- so. -- group we really feel their energy and on the style that we play with his kindest -- go for -- run hard play hard. I think that some fans relate to him and appreciate you guys when the supporters shield best team regular season. In Major League soccer do you guys carry that into the playoffs think we are the team to beat or trying to lay low. I mean that's internally -- -- we feel the best team and we knew we kind of one and done forgot about the playoffs that. We know for sure that they're hard enough success and -- this season doesn't mean much now and if we played the feeling and I can play poorly tomorrow and I would be out so I'm we have a lot of respect for -- for the Galaxy and on -- -- -- to give our best effort you guys clinched the west crown and home field throughout the playoffs a little bit early in the regular season. Did you guys who you're playing your best soccer some teams lay off the gas pedal a little bit near the end do you guys feel you guys played your best soccer. Yeah did not towards then probably not. I'm honestly but. -- -- did you got to take into consideration things we had. I'm injuries the guys get healthy. All sorts of different things in the coaching to -- so. Where will play poorly by any means but. I'm more confident and a batter and we're obviously played on on Sunday night earlier today Chris won -- -- -- point seven goals in the regular season he was asked the season will be a failure if and his answer was. The earthquakes don't win analyst cup final. Is that I mean that's that's it is a failure like you guys -- -- -- I'm absolutely especially with the I'm with everything recruit other legacies and I'm with prove that we we -- I've seen so we submission -- and this November around so. On a different if without this is one of the best midfielders and all of analyst Sam -- -- -- here chronicle fumbled on my can't wait I'm -- in there with the alternate I would never try that I'll try to get tougher the cultures and I like I can get I had actually Robert I think that even on the field.
