Tim Howard quotes

Aug 30 2017

He's intense, he's very competitive, not just in training, not just in games, but all the time. To be a good leader is very hard. You have to wear it all the time. There's no days off in that regard. I think that's what stands out the most about him. He is very steady. There's never an off day with him. He's always thinking football. He's always trying to make the team better, whether it's a small conversation in the lunch room or whether it's getting into a guy in the dressing room. He's always on, and I think that's important to be a captain.feedback

Aug 30 2017

He's been one of the greatest captains I've played for. He's just always there putting in the work and grinding. For me, it's great to see him get player of the tournament (at the Gold Cup) and see him lead his team to the top of the league and see him lead this team where we're going. It's good to see a guy get his just rewards for the effort he puts in.feedback

Beasley has been there before. He's still quick in the turn, a lot of pace, a very, very smart defender.feedback

Jul 27 2017

Redemption is a beautiful thing. You could see he was upset about it, but he had enough about him to keep going, scored a goal, and all of that stuff means nothing. It's glory.feedback

Jul 26 2017

Some people get tired of it and then move on and you don't remember their names. To me, I want to be great. I don't know if I am great. I don't know if I'll ever get to that level, but I'm chasing greatness every day.feedback

Jul 26 2017

Day to day it's hard as hell. I feel good where I am physically come match day, but to get to that point is – at this stage – is very difficult. I have to commit every day to making sure that all my treatments and my rehab and all of my rest is geared toward match day. That's what happens when you get to be older. You can't leave anything on the training ground. Where before I would train every day and go for hours and hours. Now you just can't, because if I did I wouldn't be prepared for match day.feedback

Jul 26 2017 - Champions League

My dream would be this offseason maybe go over to Juventus and watch Buffon and kind of see what he does. Obviously that's something I would love to do. I haven't quite figured out logistically how it would work. I want to see what I'm doing right, and what I can incorporate, and how he does it. That's a different level. Match day, then Champions League, then playing for his national team.feedback

Jul 26 2017

I was a goalkeeper who needed to develop and learn, but when you get thrown in at the deep end you figure it out.feedback

Jul 26 2017 - World Cup

I would imagine so. It's hard. It's day by day with me, it's game by game. I take things in segments. The goal for everybody is to get to and through that World Cup. Outside of that I have no idea. That's my target. I have another two seasons after this on my contract (with the Colorado Rapids so we'll see.feedback

Jul 26 2017

It's a love affair. I've fallen in love with competing. It's like a drug. You want more of it. You want to push the boundaries of what is possible for yourself, what people have done before you. Winning and competing is enticing to me. It still gets my juices flowing. I wouldn't have thought it would be this long when I was younger, but I've been lucky. I've been lucky with injuries, I've been lucky to have some good coaches, and some teams I've had good fortune.feedback

Jul 25 2017 - World Cup

Collectively, when we all get together it's important that these guys take on bigger roles, and tournaments like [the Gold Cup] help. It certainly helps our guys here who are in the mix, and we lean on guys like Kellyn and Darlington. It's important to have people step up and special moments in games because, ultimately, if we want to get to a World Cup and if we want to get beyond the later stages of the World Cup, we're going to need to have guys who can do it. Not just one guy.feedback

Jul 25 2017

We're not a nation that's blessed with difference-makers. There's always someone coming through. It just doesn't happen here. In Brazil it happens, in Spain it happens, but that's not how it is here. We have some difference-makers in Jozy and Clint, they've been that for us for a long time. Christian has burst onto the scene and he's done well in terms of handling that pressure and role for us.feedback

Jul 21 2017

Paul's a guy who comes underneath and when he gets the ball he's silky, he doesn't lose it a ton. He's a guy we have to get on the ball for us to help our football be more free flowing. A quiet kid, hard worker – exactly what we need.feedback

Jul 20 2017

It has to get much better. (Costa Rica) is a good team, but also I think our standards are high. There's an appearance in the final on the line, so we've got to get better and better.feedback

Jul 20 2017

I'm sure CONCACAF will uh, will uh, I don't know. I'm sure they will do what they're supposed to do. You can't go around biting people. That's crazy. [The nipple twisting] should be allowed, but the biting is no good.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - Mexico

If something fazes him, I'd be shocked.feedback

Jun 10 2017 - Mexico

When these guys are bearing down on you Donald Trump is the last thing on your mind. It's a great storyline but there are so many factors out here that are going to occupy all of our thoughts.feedback

Jun 09 2017

I'm not sure he'd win in a street fight, but he'll always get stuck into a tackle. He's not afraid. He's a big boy playing in the Bundesliga, so he knows what it's about. He's not afraid. That's huge for us.feedback

Jun 08 2017

Well, I think there is less experimentation. As you look at these guys walking around, every single guy contributes. They have a purpose here. Any of them can step on the field and we feel like we are not really going to lose too much. In a lot of positions, we gain with the fresh legs. This is a very balanced team from top to bottom.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Mexico

Mexico is the furthest thing from our mind, to be honest with you. We've got to focus here and get these three points, and then we'll quickly move forward. I think Bruce has got everyone pretty grounded and pretty focused on (the Trinidad & Tobago) game. Mexico will give us a world of trouble if we don't get the points here that we need so everyone knows what's at stake on Thursday.feedback

May 30 2017 - Mexico

We need to win our home game against Trinidad. That's vital. Prepare ourselves physically as best we can, then the task of playing Mexico in Mexico. Which is always tough, but again, we need to keep climbing that table and we feel this is a good opportunity to do it.feedback

May 30 2017

When you look at the roster top to bottom, you feel good about the guys who are able to come in and not only compete for spots but obviously get on the field and perform. I think we're past the experimentation phase. These are all guys who the manager believes in wholeheartedly. They're not here for anything other than to play minutes and to play important minutes.feedback

May 30 2017

If I have the honor of representing my country – and I say it all the time, it probably sounds like lip service but outside of my kids it's the greatest thing I've ever done in my life – so it means the world to make it on the field, and put that shirt on and try to lead this team and perform well.feedback

May 30 2017

I feel great. My body's been getting stronger week by week as I came out of preseason. I feel good about where I'm at, and how I feel physically obviously that's the most important thing. The soccer is the soccer, and the goalkeeping is natural for me now at my age.feedback

May 30 2017

I've only ever had one game. That's as far as you can look. You can't look to next week or the week after or two months from now. The next game is what matters to me.feedback

Apr 21 2017

I want to begin by saying I am genuinely sorry for my behavior in Kansas City and I want to apologize to my fans. I let myself get too worked up after being provoked and said some things I shouldn't have. I am at fault and certainly not a victim in this incident.feedback

Apr 21 2017

It is not ok for an apparently drunk fan to get inches away from an athlete's face and yell obscenities at them. While I should have controlled my reaction, I want to make it clear that I have never been put into a situation like that until Kansas City. I'm not a security expert, so don't know the details of how a fan could get so close, but it was not the norm and not right.feedback

Apr 21 2017

I am not saying I want censorship of fans or security policing against passion, but we all deserve a fan-friendly and safe environment. I don't mind – and even enjoy – a bit of verbal jousting with fans but I don't want to be taunted for my race or my disability (Tourette Syndrome), which didn't happen specifically in Kansas City but happens very often. I want security to keep fans at enough of a distance that a physical confrontation is impossible.feedback

Apr 07 2017

On the field, he's exciting. And he's the X-factor. And every team has an X-factor. You have to have it, it's good.feedback

Mar 29 2017

When you play against top defenders in Europe, they recognize the talent and defend properly. In CONCACAF, they don't defend properly. They just come steaming through. It's crazy, but it's effective on certain nights when the referee isn't on your side. He was resilient. For a little fella, he mixes it up.feedback

Mar 29 2017

On the goal, I thought I was in a good position. He just overpowered me. It was a similar play, a swivel and a hit, and I was just lucky to get in the way.feedback

Mar 29 2017

Three minutes into the game, you realize you're playing 12 against 11.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Mexico

If you watch the game you would shake your head. It's what we've come to expect away from home with all the elements. We're always swimming upstream away from home.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Mexico

We didn't tie the game, we won a dogfight. It's tough away from home in qualifying. We had to get a point. They're a physical team. This is probably the most athletic team in CONCACAF so it's hard to match them but I thought we did a good job.feedback

Mar 28 2017

If we lose tomorrow, you guys will be talking about how it's too loose an atmosphere, and this guy doesn't know what he's doing.feedback

Mar 22 2017

He's very diligent in the way he prepares us and he asks a lot of us as individuals that we're prepared. I've always taken that with me as I've traveled and played. I've used it to grow as a player and I've always leaned on it to be laser-focused and always be prepared.feedback

Mar 12 2017

I'm 38, I'm not sure I'll ever be 100 percent again, but I feel like I can get the job done. I wouldn't go out there if I couldn't.feedback

Mar 12 2017

I felt good, I felt sharp. Ticked a lot of boxes. It's not like I've just come off the couch. I've been training at least a month now. I would have liked to have gotten some games in preseason, but that's not the case here, and my hands were tied a little bit in terms of trying to get reserve games. We made it work, and I felt, certainly going into it, that I was sharp. I prefer not to let Bradley in in that type of scenario, but it was a good 'welcome back' moment. At least I made the save.feedback

Mar 12 2017

I want to be healthy, and I want to be playing well. I'll wait and see. I still wait for the emails. Obviously that's a question for Bruce. Hopefully I'll do enough to get an opportunity if I'm healthy.feedback

Mar 12 2017

Yesterday, when it snowed, it wasn't ideal, and I knew how cold it would be today. I would have preferred a game in Orlando or Houston, but I felt healthy so I just figured I'd go with it and get myself as warm as possible.feedback
