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.

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,...

The Revolution home opener kicks off at 2 p.m. ET. The last Revolution home match took place on October 23, 2016.

FC Dallas’ Maynor Figueroa suspended for takedown of Kei Kamara

FC Dallas’ Maynor Figueroa suspended for takedown of Kei Kamara

On Tuesday, a yellow-card foul turned into a one-game suspension for the FC Dallas defender. The MLS disciplinary committee did not look favorably on Maynor Figueroa’s second-half takedown of Kei Kamara during Saturday’s Revolution-FC Dallas matchup. On Tuesday, the committee handed Figueroa a one-match suspension for endangering the safety of his opponent. The Honduran defender will not feature for the Toros on April 8, when his team hosts Minnesota United. Figueroa’s challenge occurred from an awkward angle as Kamara took a touch near midfield. The tackle cleaned out the...

Revolution 1, FC Dallas 2: Early goal not enough for the visitors

Revolution 1, FC Dallas 2: Early goal not enough for the visitors

Maxi Urruti scored two to negate Lee Nguyen’s penalty. The New England Revolution are still winless in 2017, as Maxi Urruti’s double negated the visitor’s early tally. The Revolution used the high press early, creating a couple of dangerous chances that resulted in corner kicks. Lee Nguyen’s service from the corner arc in the 10th minute led to a penalty when Cristian Colman pulled down Antonio Delemea. After a quick conversation with Kei Kamara, Nguyen stepped up to give the Revolution a 1-0 lead. The Revs were on the attack again three minutes later, as Kamara fought his way past...

Kamara Hoping Weather Is “Cold Enough” for Revolution Home Opener

The charismatic forward wants the upper hand vs. Orlando City SC When the revolution take the field on Saturday, the “feels like” temperature may not exceed 10 degrees. That's the risk of playing soccer, in Massachusetts, in early March. But don't complain to Kei Kamara. The Revolution forward is concerned about the weather, but for a different reason than everyone else. “I don’t think it’s going to be cold enough,” Kamara said in a team release. “Again, that’s going to be our advantage when [Orlando City] comes here. It’s going to be cold, the field is in our...

Kei Kamara rapped with Vanilla Ice

Kei Kamara rapped with Vanilla Ice

Ice Ice Baby... It’s not every day that you run into a celebrity, let alone 90’s pop star Vanilla Ice, but that’s what happen to Kei Kamara this past Saturday. The New England Revolution striker was on a pregame walk when he ran into the rapper who once wowed audiences with his hit song “Ice Ice Baby.” The star sighting warranted a double take from Kamara. “I starred him down a few times and then he looked at me and then put the shades on and tried to go away,” Kamara explained. “I was like, ‘Do you mind if I please get a picture?’ He was like, ‘Yeah, sure.’ So it...

Revolution vs. Rapids: 5 Takeaways From the Season Opener

Revolution vs. Rapids: 5 Takeaways From the Season Opener

Antonio Delamea and Benjamin Angoua held their own, and four other quick hits following Saturday’s loss. Historically slow starters, the Revolution continued the trend with a 1-0 loss to the Rapids on Saturday night. What stood out during the match? 1. The Juan Agudelo as a number 10 experiment needs more time Playing as an attacking midfielder behind Lee Nguyen and Kei Kamara, Agudelo struggled to involve himself in Saturday’s match. The Colombian-born forward occasionally got lost in the rotation of his attacking teammates and, as a result, fell out of the run of play. This doesn't...

The Revolution Have More Immediate Problems Than A New Stadium

The Revolution Have More Immediate Problems Than A New Stadium

Before the Revs can think about building and filling a new stadium with fans, perhaps it’s best to fill their MLS roster with players. A month ago, many New England Revolution fans were hopeful of the upcoming season. There are two new centerbacks in Antonio Delamea and Benjamin Angoua to bolster the Revs backline. Xavier Kouassi makes his long awaited debut after an ACL tear derailed his pre-contract signing last year. Juan Agudelo and Kei Kamara have a full season together to antagonize opposing defenses. This weekend’s season opener should be about happier times. Then Rob Stone hit...
