Diego Fagundez is the “feel-good story of the season,” says John Connolly of the Boston Herald. The 18-year old leads the Revs with five goals and has become a professional, not just a talented player, in the game of soccer. Jay Heaps compliments Fagundez and explains why his full potential is not quite measurable yet.
The Revs aren’t just looking at a playoff spot; they have a chance to be among the top teams in the eastern conference standings. They’ve posted a .500 record and have played well against closely ranked teams. Julian Cardillo of Boston.com explains that if the Revolution keeps playing the way it did in its five-game unbeaten streak, they could earn that Eastern Conference top spot come October.
Avi Creditor of SI.com releases the power rankings for week 17. The Revs had a bye week, but they are ready to get back on the field in their two upcoming games. They will travel to D.C. United for an Open Cup match on Wednesday and then to Chivas USA on Saturday.
