If you felt a sudden sense of déjà vu when Kevin Alston scored his very first MLS goal this past Saturday against Houston, it is with good reason. Head coach Jay Heaps revealed in an interview this week that he had shown the team video of a play in the March 30, 2013 matchup against FC Dallas at Gillette Stadium that very closely resembles Alston's goal (same shot angle, same spot and almost to the minute) in which Alston scored this past Saturday.

Do you and Andrew share the same taste in music? Let us know in the comments.
The Revolution home opener is just 12 days away! Just as we've done in previous years, we’re taking it to you to choose the 2014 Revolution goal song.
We have a few songs in mind, along with the 2013 goal song (“The Boys Are Back”) and will be launching a poll with 8-10 songs to let fans vote beginning this Wednesday, March 12.
Before we get the poll going, we'd like to allow a few days to suggest songs you'd like to hear as the 2014 goal song.
Post your suggestions in the comments, and if possible, post a link (youtube, spotify, etc.) so everyone can listen.

Following the Revs' 2-2 draw with the New York Red Bulls the guys shared some of their thoughts on the podcast. Once again we borrow an idea from our friends, the Felger and Mazz radio program, to bring you Squeaky Cathal and for the first time Angry Jeff.
