Heaps taking responsibility for Revs' form, says additions are possible

Coach Jay Heaps thinks the Revs are better than they've been performing. Simply listening to Jay Heaps verifies that he’s taking the New England Revolution’s slump personally. Heaps, now in his fourth year at the helm, is overseeing a team that has only collected three points since the beginning of June. It’s a disappointing run of which Heaps is taking ownership. "Anytime the team is on the field, it’s my responsibility to put them in a position to have the best outcome to win," Heaps explained to media on Wednesday. "When that doesn’t happen, I certainly take it very hard, I...

Should the Revolution Fire Head Coach Jay Heaps?

Since May 8, the Revolution have spiraled into a summer swoon, winning just once in 12 attempts. Should the club make a move?

Jay Heaps Needs to Change the Revolution's Formation

When the going gets tough, change how you approach the game. To be blunt, the New England Revolution are currently playing as a shell of the team that made it to MLS Cup last year. Sure, excuses such as Jermaine Jones’ injury, unjust refereeing decisions, and a dose of bad luck can be tossed around, but the root of the problem lies at a far more fundamental level than any of that. Dating back to the Open Cup fallout against the Charlotte Independence, a third division side, Jay Heaps’ team has lost five straight games. Call it whatever you want, things need to be changed and positive...
