Last quote by Dax McCarty

It's been a really crazy month, I'll say that. I think I've slept in my bed maybe twice the past month and a half. That comes with the territory of being a pro athlete, and I've enjoyed every minute of it.feedback

We want the ball.”.

That's the thing I'm most upset about. You have to stick around after the game and sign all these autographs and you're really pissed off inside that you didn't win the game. That's something that will bother me, but we lost to a pretty good team and I thought the performance actually merited more than a loss. That's the most frustrating part for me.feedback

Apr 30 2017

It was a frustrating night overall, because you're left wanting more, but overall obviously a really emotional night being back here. I'm just upset we couldn't get three points.feedback

Apr 30 2017

I think I was really looking forward to it, but now that it's over it's even more of a relief just to get it over with. Obviously there was a lot of hoopla surrounding the game, a lot of stuff written, a lot of chatter, but you just have to go out on the field and try to get through it. It's emotional, and obviously it's frustrating to not win.feedback

Apr 30 2017

I needed to do it. The fans that waited for me, it was more than I even could have imagined. The people here are just good people, really loyal, and the words they said to me really mean a lot to me. I'll always remember them and obviously I just wanted to show them how much they meant to me, and stick around for anyone that was willing to stay. I would have stayed out here all night and signed autographs and took pictures if I had to. I appreciate them.feedback

They key for us is clearly to limit the amount of times that Brad and Sacha can get on the ball and be dangerous. For me, obviously the Red Bulls have a great team, I don't want to take anything away from any of the guys they have on the field. They're a team that's coached into a system that they play, and they run that system very well. They have an identity, everyone does their job, and when they're at home they do their job very well.feedback

Apr 27 2017

There's going to be a lot of pressure for us to make sure we're aware of where he is at all times because he can make Brad [Wright-Phillips] the most dangerous player in the league. If you can limit the opportunities Sacha has to play passes to Brad and their wingers you're going to have a successful day at the office, but that's easier said than done.feedback

Apr 27 2017

Sacha is the obviously the brains behind everything they do. I have a lot of respect for Sacha and his ability to change a game. His vision is unbelievable. He's got a great motor. When games get tough, and there's a lot of pressure, he's the guy you want on the ball. It's funny how that worked out. I know I'll try to stick around after the match and say thank you to the fans, and then also spend time with my good friends on the (Red Bulls), hopefully with three points in my pocket.feedback

Apr 27 2017

I'm sure the feelings are going to come rushing back, but I'll try to stay calm about it. The time I spent with the Red Bulls was the best time of my career, it's when I played my best and learned a lot about myself. All that said, I'm older now, I know what matters is stepping on the field and getting three important points on the road. When the game ends I'll be sure to thank the fans for their support through the years, but [I'm] going there to win.feedback

Apr 10 2017

It'll be a weird feeling. I still don't want to think about it too much. I don't want the moment or the occasion of me going back there to take away from our team, and to take away from the Chicago Fire trying to just get a result. When you try to make things about an individual, or one player, it's easier to get distracted and play poorly. I'll try to treat it like any other game.feedback

Apr 10 2017

It was a gutsy performance. We had to withstand a little bit of possession and a little bit of pressure from Columbus, but at the end of the day you're at home you want to give the fans three points, so it was important to win. That's where I think we learned from our mistakes. We wanted to tighten things up in the back against Columbus. For us, that's going to be the foundation of what's going to make us successful this year. If we can be good defensively, and our attackers know they have that foundation to have freedom to go forward and express themselves and create chances and score goals.feedback

Apr 10 2017

That was a big disappointment, that kind of felt like a loss even though we came back and drew the game at the end. I was really upset with how the flow of that game went. Montreal basically had nothing the whole game and we concede two really soft, really poorly defended goals.feedback

Apr 10 2017

I definitely don't have it circled on the calendar. One thing that I want to make sure that I do is I don't want to make it a bigger deal than it is. In my mind, I know it's going to be a big deal. It's going to be an emotional occasion for me. The thing that I try to do is focus on the here and now and helping this team get results, get wins.feedback

Apr 10 2017

I had a moment of weakness, and did think about it the other day, and the only thing that I thought was, Man, it's going to be really weird going to Red Bull Arena and walking into the visiting locker room. I've only done that once since I've been in MLS. That was with FC Dallas, in the first game I played with FC Dallas at Red Bull Arena. Every game I've played since then I've walked into the home locker room.feedback

Apr 10 2017

That's something that Pauno has talked about wanting to be able to do in the future, is be tactically flexible with how we play. With Juninho being suspended because of a red card we decided to play three in the back and I thought in the first half it worked well for us. Tactically we kind of figured out a good rhythm with the ball and without the ball. I thought we limited their chances, and obviously we got a good goal.feedback

Apr 10 2017

After the game is over, regardless of the result, win, lose or draw, I'm going to try and soak in the moment. Red Bull, and New York and the fans, my teammates, meant so much to me for the five and a half, six years that I was there so I'll definitely enjoy it afterwards.feedback

Apr 10 2017

I'm settling in, and I think a lot of that has to do with being around the team more. Again, we had [U.S. national team] January camp so I came into preseason late. Obviously the shock of the trade, mentally I wasn't quite right. Still trying to process everything, it took me a while. I think finding a place to live, getting to know the neighborhoods in Chicago, getting to know my teammates a little better off the field, these are all things that contribute to making sure that players are comfortable and ultimately play their best soccer.feedback

Apr 08 2017 - Champions League

The thing with Bastian that you notice is he makes everyone around him better. He makes the game easier for everyone because he's got a soccer brain. Not many guys that you play with in MLS have a soccer brain at the highest level, at a world-class level. He just sees plays develop before they happen. It's always fun to play with players like that. You look at a guy like Thierry (Henry). He's won the Champions League, the Premier League, the World Cup. There's not much he hasn't won and that's for a reason. It's because he's one of the best players in the world.feedback

Apr 08 2017 - CVS

Bastian comes in, he hasn't played in a year and a half, he steps into the team and immediately you see his quality. And again, that's because he's been one of the best players in the world over the last couple of years. You look at their pedigrees, and you look at their CVs and you find yourself scratching your head at how anyone could question whether this guy was going to come in and help our team be successful.feedback

Apr 08 2017

He wasn't just going to come on vacation, and the main reason (I believed that) is he's German. Do you know many Germans? They're machines. They don't know know how to give less than 100 percent. They don't know how to do things half-assed. When they commit to something, they do it all the way.feedback

Apr 08 2017

Playing with Thierry was a little bit different because he's more of a striker. With Thierry, you knew that if you gave him the ball he was going to dribble and make the killer pass and make something happen with his speed, athleticism and technical ability.feedback

Apr 08 2017

Now, it's a little different playing with Bastian, because he's a very similar type player as me in terms of he's more of a deep-lying playmaker. He likes to get the ball off of the defenders and likes to make the game from a little bit deeper. For me it's been a pleasure being able to play with him these past few games, and just kind of try to take little things from his game and see what he does really well and see how I can incorporate that into my game, but also see how I can feed off him and make him better.feedback

Apr 08 2017

It's easy to play with good players. It's even easier to play with world-class players. For me, it's always refreshing when you get a chance to play with guys who have not only played at the highest level, but they've won at the highest level.feedback

Apr 08 2017

Now it's important that we, as a team, can make him feel as comfortable as possible so that he plays his best soccer. I think we've seen glimpses, especially throughout 180 minutes that he's played, that he's a game-changer and he's capable of making plays that not many guys on the field are capable of making.feedback

Mar 06 2017

Obviously a big thing here, with being at altitude, is getting your body to adjust. It's never easy. A little bit short of breath there the first couple of days, but now we're four days into training. You can tell guys are getting sharper. Guys are starting to catch their breath a little bit easier. The sessions have been really sharp.feedback
