Revs fall at final hurdle again
Frisco, Texas - For the first time the Revolution had a shot at a title against a team other than the Los Angeles Galaxy. This time the Houston Dynamo was the opponent and the Revs looked for a reversal of fortune after having lost in their two previous MLS Cup final appearances in 2005 and 2002, as well as the US Open Cup final in 2001 to the Galaxy in overtime. While the opponent changed, the end result was the same as the Revs lost in even more dramatic and tragic fashion.

Clint Dempsey leads Revs and US with style
In the aftermath of a disappointing World Cup for the US Men’s National Team, both former Head Coach Bruce Arena and former captain Claudio Reyna have commented on the necessity of more players plying their trade in Europe for the US to advance. This belief, though held by many, fails to have much backing when one considers the best player for the US in this World Cup was in fact the New England Revolution’s own Clint Dempsey.

Injury depleted Revs struggle to get results despite good play
The New England Revolution have come away with three ties in a row, while without as many as 11 players due to injury in addition to missing two players to the World Cup. The Revs were missing Pat Noonan, Daniel Hernandez, James Riley, Joe Franchino, Khano Smith, Marshall Leonard, Doug Warren, Willie Sims, Jani Galik, Ryan Latham and Leandro de Oliveira for all or most of their recent matches due to injury in addition to Clint Dempsey (USA) and Avery John (Trinidad and Tobago) due to World Cup duty. Despite this, the Revs still outplayed many of their opponents and can feel unlucky to have only come away with three ties in three matches.

Revs held to a scoreless draw by Red Bulls
The New York Red Bulls’ home opener will likely be more remembered for pre-game and halftime festivities than the game itself. The new ownership of the New York franchise went all out to make the game an exciting event, honoring former greats of New York’s soccer past, including Pelé and Franz Beckenbauer, in a pre-game ceremony and bringing in Shakira and Wyclef Jean to perform at halftime. The match itself, while a lively affair, was marred by poor finishing on both sides.

Rematch with Galaxy in MLS Cup final brings same result
Frisco, Texas - The New England Revolution got their second shot at winning the MLS Cup and again it came against the Los Angeles Galaxy. While the teams have greatly changed since 2002, the end result was the same. The Galaxy won their second ever MLS Cup 1-0 in overtime thanks to a goal by Guatemalan Guillermo Ramirez in the 107th minute. Their only other MLS Cup coming in 2002 when Guatemalan Carlos Ruiz scored the game winner in the 113th minute in another 1-0 overtime win. The Revs went into the match as favorites with the better regular season record (17-7-8, 59 points) than the Galaxy (13-13-6, 45 points). The Revs scored 11 more goals than the Galaxy over the regular season, while allowing 8 less. None of this mattered in the final, however, as the Galaxy were the better team on the day and kept the Revs from winning their first ever championship.

There Goes My Hero
On January 27th, favorite for fans of both the U.S. National Team and New England Revolution, Joe-Max Moore decided to hang up his cleats. The third all time leading scorer in the history of the U.S. National Team and the all-time scorer in the history of the Revolution made the decision to retire after undergoing reconstructive surgery on his knee. The 33 year old had earned the reputation at both the national and club level as a fierce competitor, who would never give anything less than his all. This is what made him a fan favorite in New England and the rest of the U.S. and this was why he is the favorite player for so many American soccer fans, including myself.

The team that lost 156 man games to injury last year, the most in league history, and was unable to field a full bench for much of the season now must acquire even more depth during the offseason if they want to be challengers for the cup. The Revs also left defenders Joe Franchino, Steve Howey and Carlos Llamosa as well as forward Joe-Max Moore and goalie Adin Brown unprotected, but none were selected and they will remain with the Revs.

Revs season ends with another heartbreaker

United through regulation time, overtime and the first five penalty kicks. Many are already calling the game the best in Major League Soccer history.

FOXBORO, MA. – The New England Revolution fell to a San Jose Earthquakes squad that was missing four starters, three of which were All-Stars this year. The Revs, nearly at full strength were unable to score against San Jose’s back-up goalie, or shut down San Jose’s third and fourth string forwards.

Player Profile: Andy Dorman
If all Andy Dorman did this season was score the game tying goal against D.C. United, it would be enough to make the 58th pick in this year’s Major League Soccer SuperDraft more valuable than dozens of the picks before him who have yet to see significant playing time or never even signed with their clubs. Dorman has been a hero in recent weeks for the Revs as a late game substitute. Coming on as an 83rd minute substitute against Dallas on August 11th, Dorman recorded his first goal and first assist of the season, adding insurance to a one goal Revs lead that seemed destined to be erased from all of Dallas’ offensive pressure until Dorman came on. Three days later on August 14th, Dorman proved hero again, coming on in the 85th minute and scoring the game-tying goal seconds later. The Flintshire, Wales native has played in 16 games, but averages only just over 21 minutes of playing time during those games for a total of 277 minutes. Dorman’s two starts came back when the Revs were struggling with injuries and his recent good form hasn’t increased his playing time as he came in for the Revs in the 81st minute on August 21st against Kansas City.

Revs unbeaten streak ends at 7
FOXBORO, MA. – A 16 to 8 advantage in shots was not enough for the New England Revolution (5-9-8) to get anything out of a vital match against the Kansas City Wizards (10-7-5). An early Taylor Twellman goal was not a sufficient lead for the Revs as their record when scoring the first goal (4-2-5) is now the worst in the league. Poor finishing and poor organization that seemed to be getting better during the Revs’ recent run could once again be blamed for the Revs loss. The Revs got what should’ve been good news before the match when they found out Tony Meola, who currently has the best goals against average in the league, had injured his right Achilles in a pre-game jog. Meola’s back-up Bo Oshoniyi, however, played so well he earned Man of the Match honors.

Revs tie DC 2-2 on late equalizer
WASHINGTON, DC. – For the second time in a row, Revs’ head coach Steve Nicol subbed in Andy Dorman in the last ten minutes of the match and once again Dorman proved to be a hero. After recording a goal and an assist against Dallas on Wednesday coming on in the 83rd minute, Dorman scored a late equalizer against DC just seconds after he entered the match. The New England Revolution (5-8-8) extended their unbeaten streak to 7 games with the tie against DC (6-8-7). The Revs are now in sole possession of fourth place in the East.

Revs defeat Dallas 3-0 behind inspired performance by Matt Reis
DALLAS, TX. – The New England Revolution (5-8-7) made a third minute lead against Dallas (7-8-5) stand thanks to a spectacular performance by Matt Reis. Pat Noonan gave the Revs the early lead with Taylor Twellman and Andy Dorman adding late insurance goals. The Revs took the lead in just the third minute. After earning a free kick about 30 yards out from goal on the right flank, Jose Cancela quickly sent a pass to Steve Ralston, catching the Burn off guard. Ralston got to the end line before sending the ball across the 6-yard box, past goalie Jeff Cassar. Noonan slid in to easily redirect the ball into the empty net.

Revs deadlock Crew at two
FOXBORO, MA. – The New England Revolution (4-8-7) came from behind twice to tie the Columbus Crew (6-5-7) on August 7th. With the draw, the Revs move into a tie for the fourth and final playoff spot in the East with the Chicago Fire. Despite leading in almost every offensive statistic, including a fifteen to eight advantage in shots and an eight to four advantage in shots on goal, the Revs trailed twice and could never find an advantage in the one statistic that matters, goals. The tie extends the Crew’s unbeaten streak to 6 games and the Revs’ unbeaten streak to 5 games.

Revs can’t hold 2 goal lead against ten-man Earthquakes
San Jose, CA. - The New England Revolution (4-8-6) finally had some luck against the San Jose Earthquakes (5-6-6), taking a two goal lead, despite trailing in every major offensive statistic. With a two goal lead and a man advantage going into stoppage time, the game seemed all but over for the ’Quakes, but two surprising goals in stoppage time helped San Jose earn a 2-2 draw against a tired New England squad. A win would’ve moved the Revs into 4th, while the tie leaves both the Revs and ‘Quakes in last place in the Eastern and Western Conferences, respectively.

Spirited Rhinos defeat uninspiring Revs in US Open Cup
LUDLOW, MA. – The Rochester Raging Rhinos of the A-League (American Soccer Division II) defeated the New England Revolution 3 to 1 on penalty kicks after playing the ninety minutes of regulation and thirty minutes of overtime to a 1-1 draw. The Rhinos controlled the majority of the possession as the Revs struggled to string together simple passes. Goalie Matt Reis kept the Revs in the match, but it was Rhinos ‘keeper Theo Zagar who was the hero when the match went to penalty kicks. The Revs, along with all nine other MLS teams participated in the 99th annual US Open Cup. The tournament pits the best teams from all levels of soccer against each other.

Revs fail to hold early lead against Crew, tie 1-1
COLUMBUS, OH. – The Revolution (4-8-5) took a 31st minute lead courtesy of Clint Dempsey, but failed to hold onto it and ended up with a 1-1 tie leaving Columbus. After losing the first two games of the season series with the Crew (5-5-5) in dramatic fashion, the Revs came out fired up and looking for a win. They used this to dominate the possession and chances in the first half, but fatigue from 3 matches in 6 days seemed to hit in the second half as the Crew controlled most of the possession from then on.

Twellman stuns Fire in amazing 3-1 comeback win
FOXBORO, MA. – The New England Revolution got a crucial comeback victory over the Chicago Fire, thanks in part to two goals from Taylor Twellman. The past two years team goal scoring leader scored the game winner and an insurance goal to help pull the Revs (4-8-4) within a win of the Chicago Fire (4-6-6) for the fourth and final playoff spot in the East. The night was bittersweet for Twellman, however, as he received a red card in the 90th minute, meaning he’ll miss the Revs next match. Rookie Clint Dempsey, who along with Pat Noonan was named as a reserve for the Eastern Conference All-Star team, recorded a goal and an assist in the match.

Ralston free kick ties Fire 1-1
Chicago, IL. – An amazing free kick by Steve Ralston just seconds after the Fire took the lead stunned the Fire and the record crowd of 39,529, while giving the New England Revolution (3-8-4) a crucial point on the road. While the Chicago Fire (4-5-6) controlled most of the possession, the Revs created the majority of good goal-scoring chances, but again failed to bury their chances and fell down 1-0 in the 50th minute on a Damani Ralph penalty kick goal before equalizing seconds later.

Despite dominating, Revs come away with another loss
DENVER, CO. – A soccer game can’t be won if a team doesn’t take advantage of it’s chances and the New England Revolution proved that on July 4th, losing to Colorado 1-0 despite creating the majority of good opportunities and dominating the possession. After seeing Colorado goalkeeper Joe Cannon earn Man of the Match for his several great saves to deny the Revs from scoring, opposing goalkeepers have now earned Man of the Match 5 times in the Revs 8 losses. The losses can’t just be blamed on good goalkeeping however, as the Revs certainly haven’t helped their cause by some very poor shot placement. Just like in the other losses, the Revs helped the goalie out by sending several point blank shots directly at him. Now with a 3-8-3 record and two games out of a playoff spot again, the Revs head into the away leg of a home and away series with the Chicago Fire that could see the Revs either leap frog the Fire into fourth or fall much deeper into last place.

Player Profile: Rookie Sensation Clint Dempsey
The eighth pick of the 2004 Major League Soccer SuperDraft has earned a starting spot in the New England Revolution’s line-up and is considered by many the early favorite for rookie of the year. Clint Dempsey is currently second on the Revs in scoring with 4 goals and is one of only three players to have played in all 13 of the Revolution’s matches this season. The rookie midfielder/forward is only the third player in team history to earn a starting spot in his first or second game and leads all of the top ten picks from this year’s SuperDraft in minutes played. Dempsey comes into Sunday’s match against Colorado with a three game goal-scoring streak despite playing both forward and defensive midfield in different games during that stretch. With stats like this it’s easy to see why the 21 year old from Nacogdoches, Texas is attracting so much attention from media and fans.

Revs upset Metrostars, 2-1
FOXBORO, MA. - The last place New England Revolution (3-7-3) upset the first place Metrostars (5-4-4), despite missing many starters to injury. With the win, the Revs have gone 10 MLS games unbeaten against the Metrostars including the playoffs. Rookies Clint Dempsey and Felix Brillant provided the goals for the Revs, while great saves from both Adin Brown and Matt Reis kept the Metrostars from scoring until the 90th minute.

FOXBORO, MA. - The New England Revolution (2-7-3) lost 3-1 to the Kansas City Wizards (6-4-3), to fall even further into last place. Both the Metrostars and D.C.

Revs dominate but still lose
DALLAS, TX. (6/12/04)- Despite missing seven starters, the New England Revolution (2-6-3) dominated against the Dallas Burn (4-4-2), but still left with a 3-1 loss. Without regular starters Taylor Twellman, Pat Noonan, Joe-Max Moore, Carlos Llamosa, Rusty Pierce and Brian Kamler due to injury and Shalrie Joseph due to his call-up to the Grenada national team, the Revs still managed to control the possession for the majority of the match. Already down 3-1 in the 89th minute, the Revs faced more problems when captain Joey Franchino was suspended, leaving the Revs without yet another player for the upcoming match against Kansas City.

Columbus defeat Revs in sloppy match
FOXBORO, MA. - For the second time this year, the Revs lost to Columbus because of poor refereeing and poor decision making. Both teams had trouble judging their passes in the wet field conditions and constant drizzle as they played in front of a crowd of 7,047. The Revs, who played their 3rd game in 8 days lost 2-1. Both teams failed to score on some clear chances including a penalty kick in stoppage time of the second half that could have brought the Revs level.

Noonan hat trick leads Revs in late comeback victory against Kansas City
KANSAS CITY, MO. (6/2/04) - Two goals in the last minutes of the match by Pat Noonan, completed his hat trick and gave the New England Revolution (2-4-3) a surprising 3-2 victory over the Kansas City Wizards (3-4-2). The Revs finally produced some offense scoring three goals for the first time all season. Missing forward Joe-Max Moore and star forward Taylor Twellman to injury, the Revs moved Clint Dempsey out of his normal defensive-midfield spot into forward alongside Noonan.

Revs lose game and Twellman
FOXBORO, MA. (5/29/04)- The New England Revolution (1-4-3) lost 1-0 to D.C. United (3-4-3) thanks to a 5th minute own goal, but probably more importantly lost Taylor Twellman, the team’s leading goal scorer the past two years, to a hamstring injury in the 69th minute. A crowd of 19,314 showed up to see Freddy Adu’s Gillette Stadium debut and it sometimes seemed to be a pro-D.C. United crowd as fans often booed when Adu was knocked down and no foul was given.

Revs fail to hold early lead against Metrostars and end in 1-1 draw
FOXBORO, MA. - The New England Revolution took an early lead against the Metrostars, but despite creating the majority of good chances they were unable to respond to a second half goal by Cornell Glen and came away with a somewhat disappointing 1-1 draw. An early goal by Pat Noonan ended the Revolution’s scoreless streak that lasted over two games, but wasn’t enough to end their winless streak that has now stretched to three games.

Referee gifts Columbus a win on the fifth anniversary of their stadium
COLUMBUS, OHIO. (5/15/04) - The New England Revolution (1-3-2) scored two goals against Columbus (1-3-2), but somehow managed to find themselves on the short end of a 1-0 loss to the previously winless Crew. After a late first half goal by Edson Buddle, Taylor Twellman and Steve Ralston both scored what could have been the equalizing goal, but both were called offsides by Michael Kennedy in two of his many questionable calls that night. The Crew, who were celebrating the 5th anniversery of Crew Stadium, got away with rough play all night with a slide-tackle from behind on Jose Cancela and many off-the-ball challenges on Clint Dempsey going uncarded. Dempsey, who had received a yellow card earlier for a soft foul on Kyle Martino was unable to retaliate, fearing a red card.

Amazing saves by Brown and Cannon highlight 0-0 draw between the Revs and Rapids
DENVER, COL. (5/7/04)- Both the New England Revolution (1-2-2) and Colorado Rapids (1-1-3) had a few great goal scoring opportunities, but poor shot placement and amazing saves by goalkeepers Adin Brown and Joe Cannon kept both teams off the score sheet. For the third straight game the Revs have been playing with the same makeshift back-line and midfield and have only allowed 2 goals in those 3 games, while going undefeated in that stretch. The Rapids extended an undefeated streak of their own, going undefeated in their last 15 home games and tying the MLS record in front of an extremely poor attendance of 7,784. The tie was a very good result for the Revs considering they were forced to play a man down for over 15 minutes after Shalrie Joseph was ejected in the 75th minute.

Revs defeat first place Los Angeles Galaxy
FOXBORO, MA. - The New England Revolution (1-2-1) earned their first win of the season by defeating the previously undefeated Los Angeles Galaxy (2-1-2) in front of a crowd of 13,811. Goals by midfielders Joe Franchino and Jose Cancela led the Revs to an impressive 2-1 victory. The Revs makeshift back-line once again held strong in a very physical match and held the Galaxy scoreless until the last seconds of stoppage time.

Rookie Clint Dempsey leads makeshift Revs lineup in 1-1 tie against the Metrostars
East Rutherford, NJ. - The winless New England Revolution (0-2-1) were missing several key players to injury, but a goal by rookie Clint Dempsey gave them their first point in the standings with a 1-1 tie against the first place Metrostars. Despite missing defenders Carlos Llamosa and Rusty Pierce as well as playmaker Jose Cancela, the Revs managed to get a very good result on the road.

San Jose crush Revs, 3-1
FOXBORO, MA. - The defending MLS Cup Champions, the San Jose Earthquakes (1-1-1), got their first win of the 2004 campaign at the New England Revolution’s (0-2-0) expense. Taylor Twellman struck first to give the Revs the lead early in the second half, but Dwayne De Rosario quickly equalized and Arturo Alvarez scored a goal off the bench to give San Jose the lead just six minutes after Twellman had scored. The crowd of 16,203, witnessed another poor defensive display by the Revs in their home opener.
