DC United midfielder Dax McCarty says the playing group is focused on getting things back on track after a disappointing beginning.
The Washington club currently sits sixth on the Eastern Conference table but have been victorious in just one of their last six and have conceded 14 goals in their four losses this season.
McCarty is well aware that things are not going the way all involved with DC would like them to be but said there is a determination to bounce back from a poor recent run.
"For us, the mentality has to be nine points," McCarty said. "For my money, we have the best fans in the league - certainly the most passionate.
"To come in and make sure we not only entertain them but get three points each and every game is vital to us. That's our mentality. You have to forget about the bad losses and just move on."
Head coach Ben Olsen said that he was sick of talking about these trivial topics and is confident that things will turn around, starting with the weekend's clash with FC Dallas.
"We talked a lot, and I'm kind of tired of talking," Olsen said. "We all looked in the mirror a little bit, and hopefully we'll have a response."
