Nerves were of little concern to Jermaine Jones when he stepped onto the pitch in at BMO Field to make his Revolution debut. The 32-year-old designated player, who was acquired by the club via league draw last Sunday, entered in the 65th minute of Saturday’s 3-0 win over Toronto and, like a seasoned pro, took it all in stride. “I was happy to be back on the pitch, and it’s always nice to play in stadiums like here,” Jones told the media after the match.

Early in Sunday’s match against the Red Bulls, D.C. United midfielder Luis Silva broke free and chased a ball towards the top of the box, where New York keeper Luis Robles met him, hopeful he could secure the ball before Silva got a foot to it. As the two met, Silva flew airborne as if Robles had kicked him — though it was tough to believe any kick subject to the laws of physics could’ve sent him sprawling with quite so much vigor.

They didn’t acquire midfielder Jermaine Jones thanks to a blind draw, and a deal to bring in forward Silvio Romero fell through at the last minute before the transfer window closed. But the Fire did get forward Robert Earnshaw, and the free-agent signing paid dividends again Saturday night. Earnshaw’s goal in the 83rd minute gave the Fire a 1-0 win over FC Dallas...
