Agudelo, Fagundez stock soars in Revolution win over Minnesota United

The two attackers stole the show at Gillette Stadium. Who else stood out? The Revolution took advantage of a short-staffed Minnesota side on Saturday, scoring early and often en route to a 5-2 win. Goals from Juan Agudelo, Chris Tierney, Lee Nguyen and Kei Kamara led the way for the the home side, while heady defending from Benjamin Angoua & Co. kept Loons forward Christian Ramirez at bay. Who stood out from this crowd of high-achievers? Here are two players whose stock rose—and two whose stock soared—during the Revolution’s home-opening win. Stock Up Chris Tierney The Wellesley,...

Chris Tierney wants to retire as a Rev

Chris Tierney wants to retire as a Rev

Chris Tierney loves playing for his hometown team. Given the turbulent nature of MLS, it’s rare to see a player stay with the same team for long, which is why it’s so special that Chris Tierney is now in his 10th season with the New England Revolution. On Saturday, Tierney made his 200th start for the Revs, an achievement few will ever reach. The Wellesley native joined his hometown club in 2008 after being selected in the Supplemental Draft. Since then he’s become one of most highly regarded left backs in the league. "Chris is excellent," head coach Jay Heaps praised. "I think Chris...

The best moments from Revolution v. Minnesota FC

The best moments from Revolution v. Minnesota FC

Let’s relive the Revs’ win. The New England Revolution took the game to Minnesota United FC, as they defeated the visitors 5-2 on Saturday afternoon. If you missed this one then you missed a lot, so let’s get you caught up. Moment of the Match Full disclosure, I’m a big Chris Tierney fan. Sure, the guy has shortcomings, but he’s a local product with a great story that brings it every single week. With this in mind, I loved seeing him score a penalty against former roommate Bobby Shuttleworth on his 200th start. Quote of the Match “I think Juan’s really a number 9 and not a...

Revolution 5, Minnesota 2: Everyone scores as Revs get first points of the season

You get a goal! You get a goal! The New England Revolution bested Minnesota United FC 5-2 on Saturday afternoon in the type of game that punished those who blink often. The Revs got goals from four different players en route to earning their first points of the season. The Revolution got on the board early, as Juan Agudelo headed home a cross in the 4th minute. It was a play that fans have seen plenty of times before with Scott Caldwell finding Chris Tierney, who whipped in one of his trademark left-footed beauties. The Revolution continued to press, but it was Minnesota who grabbed the...

Jordan McCrary, Former Revolution Top Pick, Signs With Toronto FC II

Jordan McCrary, Former Revolution Top Pick, Signs With Toronto FC II

The outside back has a new home in USL. When the Revolution drafted defender Jordan McCrary 10th overall in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft, many fans expected him to fill a long-term hole along the back line. And this made sense: With McCrary and Chris Tierney starting out wide, Andrew Farrell could permanently move to center back. But things didn’t quite turn out that way. McCrary never made a regular-season start for the Revs, and the club declined his contract in November. No team selected McCrary—or any other player—in the ensuing waiver draft. This winter, Toronto FC brought McCrary on...

A.J. Soares says Chris Tierney should be captain

A.J. Soares says Chris Tierney should be captain

Soares supports the idea of Captain Chris. Former New England Revolution defender A.J. Soares thinks highly of Chris Tierney. In fact, he thinks his former teammate should be wearing the captain’s armband. After Saturday’s 1-0 loss to the Colorado Rapids, Soares sent a tweet in support of making Tierney the captain. Soares, who played for the Revs from 2011-2014, cited local ties and club longevity as reasons why he should take the armband from Lee Nguyen. @ChrisTierney8 is a Boston local and has played about 4,000 games for the #nerevs - still not the actual captain?! Totally makes...
