Julian Cardillo of Boston.com looks at Lee Nguyen’s past history with the Whitecaps, who waived him after just 79 days. And although the Revs fell to the Whitecaps on Saturday 4-3, Cardillo still believes that they are a “team to be reckoned with,” as they proved coming off last week’s win against the Red Bulls.
Brian O’Connell of ESPN Boston discusses Saturday’s dramatic loss to the Whitecaps. Included: the road defeat snapped the Revs’ MLS unbeaten streak at five and ended their 419-minute shutout streak, as well as additional player notes.
Jessica Camerato of CSNNE.com highlights the close relationship that has developed between Diego Fagundez and Juan Agudelo. Although the pair had not previously met before Agudelo joined the Revolution, the two have clicked on the field as some of the team’s top scoring options.
Kyle McCarthy of MLSsoccer.com believes that the turning point in Saturday’s match against the Whitecaps was the controversial dismissal of Andrew Farrell. At the time of his departure, the Revolution was enjoying a two-goal lead, but McCarthy believes that the team must do a better job of sticking to their game plan no matter what occurs.
