Revs USOC Failure Hits Hard

The U.S. Open Cup has two purposes in American Soccer. It gives smaller division teams a chance to shine, and for the bigger clubs to earn some spending money. No one ever expects the lower division teams to make it far, and when they do they’re called cupsets. Unfortunately, the Revs found themselves on the wrong side of one on Tuesday. How Did This Happen? It’s no secret that whenever MLS clubs play lower division teams they start a weaker lineup. The Revolution were no different, starting what was basically their C team on Tuesday against Louisville City FC.  However, the team that took...

Revs Academy Announces Partnership with HUSC/ASC

After going 0-0-3 in the Premier Division and 0-0-6 in Generation Adidas Qualifying with a -28 goal differential, and losing two games by a seven goal margin, people took notice. Fans took to Twitter to point out all the embarrassment and disuse of the Revolution Academy. This indirectly and directly sparked Team President Brian Bellielo to start the discussion on improving the academy. While we will never be sure if the backlash caused the Revs to make changes, adjustments were made either way. Revs Making Changes So far the...

Player Ratings for Crew SC vs New England Revolution

The Revolution quickly answered back after Teal Bunbury scored on a bad angle to tie it in the 14th minute. In a game that went back and forth with both goalies making great saves, the Crew broke free again in the 43rd minute off of a Gyasi Zardes goal...

Why Revs vs. Columbus Is a Crucial Game to Win

The Revolution have started off 2018 with a 3-1-2 record. Only one of those wins were on the road. But as all Revs fans will remind you, New England had one road win in all of 2017. However, fans shouldn’t celebrate now, because we know it’s always possible to go into another slump. While Saturday will mark road game number three for the Revs, nothing would solidify this team’s turnaround and competitiveness with another win. Brad Freidel talked about how winning road games was a crucial point of any team’s success. Now it’s time for him to prove his team can do...

Revs Captain Still up for Debate

Revs fans have been in a fierce debate since the start of the offseason about what the biggest weakness of this team is. After some good signings and cuts, it’s still hard to answer that question. But there isn’t really any solid answer between players and the coaching staff. The problem with the Revs is that every starter is a good player and can play well. But in all positions they can do a LOT better. The problem is they have to get rid of a player to get an upgrade, and that’s something the front office doesn’t want...

It’s Time to Bring the Revolution to New England’s Attention The New England Revolution are off to a great start in their 2018 season. Last year the Revs were a heavily criticized team, from the front office to the players, and mostly to the coach. Jay Heaps had been in charge for six years.

Revs fans were dying to know who the next coach would be, and got their answer in early November, when the team announced the hiring of Brad...
