San Jose Earthquakes Head Coach Frank Yallop is taking everything in his stride when it comes to preseason preperations, but he is starting to feel that San Jose are ready after his team's 2-0 exhibition victory over the Colorado Rapids. Speaking to, he said: "I thought we attacked well, and we were quick on the break. We still have a ways to go, and [Colorado] would probably say the same. Bits and parts of our game were good and some were poor, but I was happy with what we created.

"I think we have enough experienced players who went through it last year ... that I don't think we're going to come out and freeze when we play our first game," said Yallop. "I think we'll be ready to go."
