Possession, Zak Boggs and Shalrie Joseph are on tap in today's newsstand

In 2011, Revolution players stress the importance of keeping possession in matches, something the team struggled with last season. ESPN Soccernet discusses how responsibility in the midfield will not be put on captain Shalrie Joseph alone, as he will have assistance this season from returning players and the experienced new signing, Ousmane Dabo.

NE Soccer Today recalls Zak Boggs’ promising start as a rookie in 2010, which took an unexpected turn due to a mid-season head injury. Returning as a non-contracted training camp invitee, Boggs is dedicated to earning a spot on the roster and picking up where he left off last season.

Shalrie Joseph is a captain who leads his crew on the field by example, whether it’s denying opponents the path to goal or finding his teammates with accurate passes. The Revs’ midfielder talks with MLSSoccer.com’s Kyle McCarthy about his desire to become a coach following his professional career as a player, and although he already demonstrates many of the traits, he is interested in gaining further knowledge of the technical side of the game.
