Revs acquire Tristan Bowen, Jeremy Hall

The New England Revolution made a pair of moves to bolster their roster on Thursday by selecting forward Tristan Bowen in Stage 2 of the re-entry draft and acquiring midfielder Jeremy Hall from Toronto for a 2015 fourth-round pick. Bowen, who spent last season with Seattle, was tabbed by the Revolution in the first round of Thursday's re-entry draft. He was limited to a pair of league appearances in 2014, and has spent the bulk of his six-year career, which included stops with Chivas USA and the Los Angeles Galaxy, as a reserve forward.

Can Diego Fagundez bounce back from a forgettable 2014?

Revolution positional review: Goalkeeper

It may not have ended the way the Revolution wanted, but it’s not a stretch to say that the 2014 season was one of the most successful in team history. Their 17 wins matched the regular-season high originally set by the 2005 squad, while midfielder Lee Nguyen enjoyed a breakthrough season that nearly netted him an MVP award. And then, of course, was the arrival -- and immediate impact -- of Jermaine Jones. But even though the Revolution came within a goal of lifting their first MLS Cup trophy in club history, there are still plenty of questions about how next year’s roster will shape...

Revs can take pride in accomplishments

Yes, the Revolution came up just shy in their hopes of clinching their first MLS Cup championship earlier this week. Even so, players, coaches and staff alike can feel proud about the remarkable season they put together in 2014. The Revolution broke preseason camp with soaring expectations after snapping a three-season playoff drought in 2013. But making a return trip to the postseason -- no matter how strong the collective ambition was in the locker room -- wasn’t necessarily a foregone conclusion.

Revs lose Mullins, Taylor in expansion draft

A pair of promising forwards won't be returning to the New England Revolution in 2015 after Patrick Mullins and Tony Taylor were selected by New York City FC in Wednesday's expansion draft. New York City FC selected Mullins with their second pick and Taylor with their fifth. Once Taylor was chosen, the remaining players on the Revolution's unprotected list were no longer eligible for selection as no club could lose more than two players. Mullins' departure came less than four days after he assisted on Chris Tierney's 79th-minute goal during Sunday's MLS Cup final.

Revs deal Castillion; expose Dorman, Soares to expansion draft

A day after the Revolution fell just short of a championship in the MLS Cup final, the front office quickly shifted its focus on 2015 by making a flurry of roster decisions on Monday. Shortly after the half-day trade window opened at 9 a.m. ET, the Revolution completed curious deal that sent promising Dutch striker Geoffrey Castillion, reserve forward Dmitry Imbongo and a 2015 second-round pick to the Colorado Rapids for backup goalkeeper Joe Nasco and a 2015 third-round pick.

Out-possessing Galaxy wasn't enough

Every club that reaches an MLS Cup final believes it will lift the trophy at the end of it. No matter the odds or obstacles, setting foot on the field with the ultimate prize at stake is enough to make any squad confident. But the stark reality is that one team will have that belief crushed at the final whistle, and that was the case for the New England Revolution on Sunday after the LA Galaxy edged them 2-1 in extra time at the StubHub Center. “It’s tough,” Revolution midfielder Teal Bunbury told the media after the match.
