Last quote by Dax McCarty

It was definitely strange. Very familiar. I saw a lot of great faces. Friendly faces that I'll definitely miss. Obviously the objective of coming back here was to try to get three points and we failed at that. That's disappointing. I thought we we played well enough to get three points. Came in here and created chances, that's something you don't do often here. The Red Bulls hadn't conceded any goals up to this point this year (at home) and I thought we had plenty of chances, even when it was 1-1, to up 2-1.feedback

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.”.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
