After speaking with President Brian Bilello following the Supporters Summit, The Soccer Guys provide a summary of changes the Revolution has ahead of the 2012 season. With the addition of a new strength and conditioning regime and weight room facility, Kevin Koczwara says the latest moves and investments will hopefully give the team advantages both on and off the field.
 
Charles Cuttone of New England Soccer News highlights some of the statements made by veteran midfielder Shalrie Joseph during a conference call from Arizona. “With veteran Joseph, national team player Benny Feilhaber and newcomers like Kelyn Rowe,” Cuttone says, “the Revs midfield is shaping up to be the team’s strength.”
 
In this post, Julian Cardillo maintains that the performance of the Revolution midfield was noteworthy during Wednesday night’s game against LA. Cardillo compliments key players, stating, “Kelyn Rowe had flashes of brilliance on the flank and cutting inside, while also serving in a perfectly placed corner that Lozano was able to bury. In addition, Saer Sene looks like an exciting player with lots of flair who loves to take on defenders. Stephen McCarthy, in the absence of AJ Soares, played center back and is progressing somewhat smoothly.” Cardillo also offers his opinion of the trialists and what the Revs might work on this season.
