Seven years later, he’s been named an All-Star.The one constant through it all? Jay Heaps.The fourth-year Revs coach was in his second-to-last year playing for the team when Tierney made his debut. After retiring in 2009, he stayed close with the team before being named head coach in 2011.All the while, he’s been connected closely with Tierney.

FOXBORO — Prior to last night’s contest against New York City FC, Revolution striker Charlie Davies took to Twitter and said, “Today we turn our season around. Today is the day!! Amped!”While a 1-0 victory over ninth place NYCFC won’t put the Revs into the MLS Cup, it was certainly a step in the right direction. Coming into the match, the Revolution had dropped five straight — the worst losing streak in MLS this season — and held a players-only meeting earlier this week to try and get things back on track.

FOXBORO — At times, Revolution fans feel as though there is more at stake for their fandom than rooting for their team to win.For many, there is the added cause of aiding the growth of soccer in this country.Therefore, there is an inclusive element to their interactions. While there is the usual passion for their club — in addition to an impressive amount of organization amid booster groups such as “The Midnight Riders” and “The Rebellion” — the overall sentiment is one of open-armed friendliness.

FOXBORO — Following his team’s dismal effort in a loss to FC Dallas on the Fourth of July, Revolution coach Jay Heaps gave his players an extra day of rest before returning to the practice field Wednesday.Heaps said the day off had been long planned. With the Revs playing such a packed schedule built with heavy travel over recent weeks, the coach wanted to give his players a break while also getting a chance to assess the season to date.Consider it well timed, or at least the Revs hope it is.

FRISCO, Texas — Loud, earth-shattering pops rumbled through the Revolution locker room. Those post-match fireworks tempted a season-high crowd into Toyota Stadium to revel in FC Dallas’ 3-0 victory last night. They also wrapped the night with the perfect sort of bow, unless you had to sit there and listen to them while processing a fifth loss in six matches.

FOXBORO — As Revolution coach Jay Heaps was concluding his postgame remarks in the wake of last Saturday’s disappointing 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps FC, he said: “These are the times when you have to stick to your process.”That defeat, which came with the Revs playing much of the game undermanned after defender Andrew Farrell received a red-card ejection for “denying a scoring opportunity,” ended the team’s 17-game (11-0-6) home unbeaten streak.
