Q&A: Richard Mulrooney recalls the greatest comeback in MLS history What was going through your mind when the team was down 2-0 after the first leg and you’re heading to Spartan Stadium for the second leg?

Richard Mulrooney: “We played well that first game. Looking back, the Galaxy were the reigning champs, there was a rivalry, there was a hatred between both clubs. Not many teams went into the Home Depot Center that year and got victories so it was disappointing. I think we played a lot better than being down 2-0 but that just goes to show the power of that club at the time.
