Zak Boggs & Tim Murray, 2011 Predictions, Dabo

In New England Soccer Today’s first interview with Ousmane Dabo, the French midfielder compares the physical nature of MLS to that of the English Premier League, and comments on how his experience in England will ease the transition to the Revs.

As New England Soccer Today’s Sean Donahue writes, second year players Zak Boggs and Tim Murray played well enough in preseason to impress the Revolution coaches and earn new contracts.

Revs forward and Gambian International, Sainey Nyassi, concludes that by supplementing his undeniable speed with better vision on the pitch, he will become a serious goal scoring threat and a nightmare for MLS defenders.

Chattanooga, Tennessee’s local media outlet, The Chattanoogan, spreads the word about the preseason MLS matchup between the Revs and the Columbus Crew in the hopes of attracting soccer fans in the area.

Major League Soccer Talk makes predictions about the Revs’ 2011 season, and discusses the high expectations the club has as they look to improve upon the team’s 2010 campaign.

The Martinsville Bulletin reported yesterday that 2011 SuperDraft selection, Alan Koger, has been offered a contract by the Revs and will become the first Henry County (Va.) native to play in MLS.
