Joe Cannon wants points not saves

San Jose Earthquakes goalkeeper Joe Cannon doesn't care about his saves if his team doesn't get any points from a game.

Following his team's 2-1 loss away to Seattle, Cannon was clear after the game that saves are great when you get something from a game.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Cannon said, "I felt like I did all right and they didn't create much, the couple of saves just kind of came.

"They had a lot of pressure and possession, I feel like tonight the first half took forever to get out there.

"We needed to hold on the ball a little more to weather there storm. We were unfortunate to not to go into halftime zero-zero. As far as the saves go it doesn't mean anything if you don't win.

"Right now with the guys we have the stats aren't doing us any justice, we have some individual errors. We went down one nothing at halftime and we were disappointed. If your team is down in a place like this it is hard."
