Columbus Crew SC at New England Revolution 2016: Game Time, TV Schedule, Live Stream

Everything you need to know for tonight’s Crew SC match with the Revolution. There is a little talk about Kei Kamara facing his former club for the second time this season, but that is overshadowed by the fact that neither team is doing well as both are outside the playoff spots. The Crew SC offense might finally be back on track with a fully fit Federico Higuain or they could have just been facing a paper thin New York City FC team last weekend. Either way, it's a positive when the team scores three and it's the once silent wingers chipping in. Ethan Finlay scored twice with Justin Meram...

Soccer | Who won in Crew's trade of Kei Kamara? Maybe no one

Sports fans love to debate winners and losers of major trades. In the case of the blockbuster deal that sent Kei Kamara from Crew SC to the New England Revolution three months ago, the answer to who won might be nobody. Not the Crew, which has won once in his absence. Not the Revolution, riding a three-game losing streak and hemorrhaging goals. Not Kamara, who hasn’t had nearly the impact on the scoresheet that he did a season ago in leading the Crew to the MLS Cup Final.adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-SPORTS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-SPORTS"};

Soccer | Crew coming up small on set-piece chances

A season ago, the Crew SC survived life as a pedestrian set-piece team because it couldn’t stop scoring from the run of play. Everything Kei Kamara touched turned to goal. His wingers Ethan Finlay and Justin Meram combined for 18 tallies. A year later, Kamara is gone and so is the scoring from the wings. A club sitting on 26 goals and riding a nine-game winless streak desperately could use a boost from corners and free kicks. It’s just not happening, though.adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-SPORTS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-SPORTS"};

Revolution 1-TFC 4: Giovinco puts on a show in Toronto

Giovinco, TFC give the Revs their first loss in Toronto since 2010. The New England Revolution lost their first game at BMO Field since 2010, as they were downed 4-1 on Saturday night.

Revolution v. Orlando: Three Thoughts

The Revolution's adjustments didn't work and two more thoughts. The New England Revolution squandered a first-half lead on Sunday night, ultimately losing 3-1 to Orlando City SC. Kei Kamara collected the Revolution’s only tally while the home side got two goals from Kevin Molino and one from Cyle Larin. So, what did we learn from the loss? Let’s take a look. 1. The Revolution’s adjustments didn’t work, but Orlando’s did. Revs head coach Jay Heaps made his first change in the 62nd minute, replacing Chris Tierney with Gershon Koffie. The switch, which saw Koffie play defensive...
