Bruce Arena's thoughts following the LA Galaxy's 1-0 defeat to the Houston Dynamo

By Adam Serrano

HOUSTON - LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena addressed the media following LA's 1-0 defeat to the Houston Dynamo

Arena's comments are below. 

(On his thoughts on the play by Dan Gargan and Jaime Penedo…)  

ARENA: “You saw it. Bad judgment on Dan’s part and poor execution by Jaime.”

(On the chances that the team created...)

ARENA: “We just didn’t finish; it’s hard to believe they even got a goal tonight. They weren’t going to get a goal and we gave them a chance and to their credit they finished it. We’re very disappointed to walk out of here without at least a point on a night where maybe we’re not great, but the other team is not dangerous and we have got to find a way to get a goal.”

(On how do you right the ship with this result…)

ARENA: “Get on the field and win on Wednesday, that’s how you right the ship.”

(On his thoughts of Raul Mendiola’s MLS debut…)

ARENA: “He did fine, he’s still a young kid but he played with a lot of confidence and courage so hopefully he can build on that.”

(On what was the strategy for this game…)

ARENA: “To win, that’s our strategy every game. Our team needed to get a goal and we came up short.”
