Chivas USA left back Jonathan Bornstein is more than happy to have played every minute of the 2009 season. following his team's latest training session, Bornstein told the Chivas USA official website: "I feel like I've started the season on a good note. I'm fit, injury-free, and the team's winning. We've earned some shutouts and not allowed very many goals. I feel like our defence has been a big part of that and being part of that defence feels good.

"It might put a little pressure on us but I don't focus on that. What's gotten us to where we are is trying to be as hard as we can, playing with great shape, and trying to be tight. We just need to keep doing those things and there shouldn't be any extra pressure."
