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...

Three thoughts about the Revolution’s unexpected bye week

Three thoughts about the Revolution’s unexpected bye week

This will give the Revs time to get healthy, and two more thoughts. The New England Revolution were scheduled to play Orlando City SC on Saturday but mother nature had other plans. The lack of a game won’t stop me from sharing three thoughts. The unexpected bye week will give players time to get healthy. With the season just two weeks old, the Revs had a couple of major names on their injury report. Brad Knighton, who will play backup to Cody Cropper, was listed as out with a concussion while Lee Nguyen was questionable due to the ankle contusion he suffered last week. Nguyen’s...

Should Kelyn Rowe Take Over the Center Attacking Midfield Role?

Should Kelyn Rowe Take Over the Center Attacking Midfield Role?

Join our Wednesday open thread and share your comments, rants and novel ideas. Fresh off a 1-0 loss at the hands of Dom Badji and the Colorado Rapids, the Revolution have a lineup controversy brewing. For the past several seasons, Lee Nguyen has featured as the tried-and-true Revolution playmaker. His occupancy of the of the number 10 role has gone virtually uncontested during his career in Foxboro. But times have changed. Juan Agudelo took over the role during preseason camp, pushing Nguyen into a second forward position. And Kelyn Rowe has quietly built a case to win the role long term....

Lee Nguyen Deemed “Day-to-Day” Ahead of Revolution Home Opener

Jay Heaps taking wait-and-see approach with his injured forward. On Saturday, the Revolution will return to Gillette Stadium for the first time in five months. And Lee Nguyen may miss the party.

Revolution gaffer Jay Heaps opened up about the injury on Tuesday, describing Nguyen as “day-to-day.” Jay Heaps classified the injured Lee Nguyen (ankle contusion) as "day-to-day."

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...

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...

Lee Nguyen provides an injury update after exiting early

Nguyen exited in the 57th minute with an ankle contusion. New England Revolution fans witnessed a rare sight on Saturday, as stalwart midfielder and team captain Lee Nguyen exited before the hour mark. The substitution, which saw Daigo Kobayashi enter, was completed out of necessity more than tactics. “I bruised my ankle and I was trying to go the second half then I got kicked again right in the beginning,” Nguyen explained while talking to reporters post-game. “I wasn’t able put any pressure on it, so I tried but I couldn’t keep going. I told them I needed to come off.” When...

Revs have much to prove in new season

Revs have much to prove in new season

FOXBORO — Stark reality dawned as last year concluded. The premature end to the season left the Revolution with little cover and little recourse. All of the dreams stoked by that magical run to MLS Cup in 2014 had fizzled. The early playoff exit in 2015 and the postseason miss in 2016 underscored how things unraveled from that apex to this nadir.“For the guys that were here last year, the way it ended kind of stung,” Revolution midfielder Lee Nguyen said. “We’re looking to make amends for that right off the bat.”

Revolution 2-0 Red Bulls II: In Final Act of Preseason, Revs Deliver Win

Goals from Kelyn Rowe and Lee Nguyen pushed the Revs to victory. The New England Revolution ended the 2017 preseason on a high note. Just days after scoring six goals in a rout of Sporting Kansas City, the Revs dominated the New York Red Bulls II, 2-0, during the Desert Diamond Cup finale. A first-choice lineup for Jay Heaps went the distance, with goals from Kelyn Rowe and Lee Nguyen powering the victory. Though the Revolution created the lion’s share of first-half chances, the sides entered the break in a scoreless deadlock. Kei Kamara and Lee Nguyen connected on the most promising...
