New England Revolution
On this week's episode of State of the Revs, Brad Feldman breaks down the Revs' loss to Toronto FC, Jay Heaps touches on Clint Dempsey's return to MLS and looks ahead to this Saturday's matchup against Sporting KC. Also, Jessica Camerato interviews Kevin Alston and Darrius Barnes.
From being woken up at his parents’ house in Leominster, Mass, on Friday morning, July 5, to the postgame fireworks celebration at Gillette Stadium following Saturday night’s win, the “MLS 36” cameras followed Fagundez as he and his family got ready for the San Jose match.
Brad Feldman and Jeff Causey bring you the highlights and a quick recap of Sunday night's 1-0 loss to Toronto FC.
This feature from MLS Insider Episode 6 takes a look at the MLS Academies with Diego Fagundez, Scott Caldwell and Juan Agudelo.
On Monday, July 29th, Andy Dorman and Kelyn Rowe joined former Revolution goalkeeper Doug Warren at Crossroads for Kids summer camp at Camp Wing in Duxbury, Mass.
Things get heated on this week's show, and Cathal is (of course) at the center of it. We also talk Royal baby (ugh), the brilliance of Jay Heaps' lineup against Columbus, and we're back at it with predictions and social media. Presented by Papa Gino's (not that other "Papa" place the Crew uses!)
Speaking of Papa Gino's - here's the Slyde/Slice photo I mentioned:

Following a two-game week, the Revolution can boast four players atop the Dream Team rankings in the MLS Fantasy Soccer rankings for the week. The Revs send one player at each level as Bobby Shuttleworth (11 points), Jose Goncalves (12 points), Lee Nguyen (12 points) and Diego Fagundez (8 points) all made the cut.
Shuttleworth finds himself atop the goalkeeper rankings following a 1.00 GAA in a double-game-week. For Shuttleworth, it is his second appearance on the DT this season.
Goncalves led the charge in a clean sheet for the Revs over Columbus on Saturday. Gonclaves also found the back of the net off a set piece in the 91st minute, his first goal as a member of the Revolution.
Nguyen earned his 12 points following a two-assist performance in the Revs win over Columbus on Saturday. Nguyen assisted on both Revolution goals, both occuring in stoppage time. Nguyen's second assist helped Diego Fagundez make his way onto the DT as Nguyen stole an errant pass and delivered it to Fagundez who scored his sixth goal of the year.

Diego Fagundez netted his sixth goal of the season in the closing moments of the Revs' win over Columbus. Following the goal Fagundez and Dimitry Imbongo took a moment to break out their new handshake celebration.
Jose Goncalves scored his first goal as a member of the Revolution in dramatic fashion, leading the Revs to a 2-0 victory in Columbus - a place the team hadn't posted a victory at since 2009. Needless to say, the captain was more than happy to score this one.
