New England Revolution Starting Line-Up?


Here’s my guess, based on literally nothing other than what I would do if I were Jay Heaps:


Shuttleworth (GK)

Farrell (D)   Gonsalves (D)   Sambinha (D)   Tierney (D)

Caldwell (M)

Rowe (M)     Fagundez (M)

Nguyen (M)

Aguedelo (F)     Davies (F)

Key Substitutes:

  • Knighton (GK)
  • Barnes (D)
  • McCrary (D)
  • Koffie (M)
  • Kobayashi (M)
  • Bunbury (F)

I thought about dividing the remainder of the roster into “squad players” and something like “looking for other work,” but honestly there’s too much gray area there.  For example, Zachary Herivaux isn’t going anywhere, but will he see much playing time?  Trevor Spangenberg and Tyler Ruday are back for a second look…but I can’t see them displacing any of the starters, or even the substitutes.  And while they’ve gone out and gotten, for example, Jeb Brovsky, I can’t say I ever even noticed him when he was with N.Y.C.F.C..

Too bad about Xavier Kouassi, but even with him I felt like the club was going to be one impact player/automatic starter away from being an improved club, never mind an elite one.
