LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) fans attempted to band together and hold strong after the worst defeat in the six month history of the team as LAFC lost on penalty kicks in the semi-final of the US Open Cup to the Houston Dynamo.
"We ..... WE WILL REBUILD," stammered an emotional Jason Redding after he shut off the stream and sat in a darkened room by himself. "I didn't know when it will happen, but I'll see a US Open Cup in my lifetime."
Long suffering fan Angela Gutierrez stated, "We will rise from the ashes of this great fall. We will all suffer together and live again."
While reactions were mostly sorrowful, some LAFC fans took their frustration out on the players who let them down as fan Paul Nguyen stated, "GODDAMMIT CIMAN," on Twitter.
Many LAFC fans, however, admitted that they would work their way through this as better days were on the horizon.
"We can make it through this. Shoulder to shoulder we will survive," stated 3252 supporters group member David Chao. "This may be the darkest day of this team, but we will find ourselves a better dawn."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as the battle tested fans head for their first run in to the MLS playoffs.
