Having some weeks ago made my peace with the fact that the New England Revolution’s season is effectively over (i.e., they will not make the playoffs) there seems little point in being negative about the club’s performance over the rest of the season. The fact that they will not make the playoffs says all that needs to be said in terms of “negativity.” So, going forward, I’m going to do my best to highlight the positive things I see in each Revolution- right after I get one last thing off of my chest.
Saer Sene- who recently became the first Revolution player to score 10+ league goals since Taylor Twellman accomplished the feat in 2007- has been lost for the season with a torn ACL. A torn ACL which he suffered without any contact…except for his feet…with the FieldTurf. Need I go on? Soccer-specific stadium…with real grass…now!
Alright, now to the positive stuff from the Revolution’s 0-0 draw with the Philadelphia Union.
The Revolution will be in action next on Wednesday when they welcome the Columbus Crew to Gillette Stadium.
