December 18, 2014 FINAL GRADES
Rating the 2014 New England Revolution
As the disappointment of another Cup Final loss fades into the rear view mirror, it’s time to take stock of a remarkable MLS campaign and post our report card for the 2014 New England Revolution.
December 5, 2014 ALL THE INGREDIENTS
Revs and Galaxy both in top form heading into what could be a powerhouse MLS Cup final
“Beat LA! Beat LA! Beat LA!” It’s a chant that evokes fabled parquet, overhanging rafters, and three epic mid-1980s battles between Larry Bird’s Celtics and Magic Johnson’s Lakers for the NBA crown. The simple refrain, dormant since the hardwood rivalry resumed in 2009 and 2010, will be revived on Sunday afternoon when the New England Revolution take on the LA Galaxy at the StubHub Center in Carson, California and try for the fifth time to take home an elusive MLS Cup (ESPN, 3:00 p.m. ET).
November 29, 2014 MLS CUP FINALISTS
Revolution advance over Red Bulls with 2-2 draw
FOXBOROUGH, Mass.--The outcome wasn’t decided until the final whistle but the New England Revolution continued their red-hot late-season run, advancing to their fifth MLS Cup with a heart-stopping back-and-forth 2-2 draw with the New York Red Bulls that gave the Revs a 4-3 aggregate goals victory in the Eastern Conference Championship Series.
He just doesn't know if it will be this season or next.
The veteran New England Revolution defensive midfielder is contemplating retirement from the game he loves.
November 26, 2014 THE JONES EFFECT
DP Jermaine Jones makes Revolution a better team -- and they know it
“Raymond Shaw is the kindest, warmest, bravest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life” So declares each member of the brainwashed US Marines platoon about their staff sergeant in The Manchurian Candidate, though we all know it’s just a cunning mind game and that the aloof Shaw and his devious handlers are up to no good. It’s hard not to imagine a similar conspiracy at work when week after week, with robot-like consistency, each and every member of the New England Revolution repeats the same monotonous refrain in praise of Jermaine Jones.
November 23, 2014 LEG UP
Revs take 2-1 lead over Red Bulls back to Foxborough
HARRISON, NJ--The New England Revolution achieved everything they needed to in New Jersey on Sunday afternoon, taking a decisive 2-1 lead in their two-game Eastern Conference Championship series with the New York Red Bulls.

October 25, 2014 PRIMED FOR THE POSTSEASON
Revs end regular season with win over Toronto
FOXBOROUGH, Mass.-- After collecting his plaque as the fans’ choice for team MVP, Lee Nguyen went out and justified the no-brainer choice by scoring the lone goal of the night as the playoff-bound Revs ended their regular season with a 1-0 win over Toronto FC at Gillette Stadium Saturday night.

October 15, 2014 PLENTY TO PLAY FOR
Rev's last two games all about postseason position

Nguyen lifts Revolution into the playoffs

Revs host Crew in marquee MLS matchup

Revs hope to extend unbeaten streak against Sporting KC on Wednesday

August 24, 2014 UNSUNG HERO
Caldwell quietly essential to Revolution’s win over Chivas USA
Scott Caldwell isn’t the kind of player to make headlines. The second-year holding midfielder rarely merits a mention in the game report. Caldwell prefers to impact a game quietly and unobtrusively, to do his job so effectively that no one notices. Saturday night’s 1-0 home win over Chivas USA was no exception
August 23, 2014 GETTING IT RIGHT
Revolution take, hold lead over Chivas USA

Revolution defense melts down in 5-1 loss to Galaxy

Revs burned by Chicago, 1-0

July 11, 2014 BRAKING POINT
Revolution try to halt 4-game skid Saturday against Fire
It’s never easy returning to the grind after a long vacation, but the New England Revolution seems to be having particular difficulty getting back into the 9 to 5 groove.

#1 Revolution host #2 DC United Saturday at Gillette Stadium
When the New England Revolution (6-3-2, 20 points) and DC United (5-3-3, 18 points) last met on a dreary night in the nation’s capital, the home side prevailed 2-0 as the Revs failed to score for the fourth time in their first five matches of the season. But that disappointment is now a distant memory.
May 19, 2014 GOALS GALORE
Revolution attack firing on all cylinders
The goals will come. The goals will come. There was an eerie absence of concern when the New England Revolution managed just two goals through the first five games of the season. And just as predicted, the goals have come. Like rain to a dustbowl. Like pennies from heaven.

Revolution host Sporting KC on Saturday

McCarthy opens his account

It will be the Revs’ second straight match against an MLS expansion team, but the Whitecaps should provide a much tougher test than did the Portland Timbers during last Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Gillette Stadium – and not just because the idiosyncrasies of airline travel will send the jet-lagged New England traveling party to the west coast of Canada via Dallas-Fort Worth, a one-way trip of approximately 3,310 air miles.
