New England Revolution Revs Excited About Rowe’s Return Share Tweet Published 3 months ago on July 19, 2017 By Tanner Rebelo New England Revolution Excited To Have Kelyn Rowe Back After Playing For USMNT New England Revolution forward Kelyn Rowe was surprisingly returned to the Rev’s after a solid performance for the United States Men’s National Team in the group stage. Having Rowe back for this weekends game is something that even surprised Revolution coach Jay Heaps. “I thought he really assimilated well and played some good games. I think having a big picture of understanding that [USMNT Head Coach Bruce Arena] was bringing in six players – and I think Bruce does a really good job of balancing out who he’s taking from teams – I thought we would get one of the players [Juan Agudelo or Kelyn Rowe] back. I didn’t know which one. So, yeah, a little bit shocked. On Sunday, I would’ve bet money that both players were going to stay, to be honest with you.” In addition to Rowe’s return, New England will have Xavier Kouassi back from injury. Both are exciting prospects for their teammates. “It’s big. Those are two starters that we’ve missed. They’re going to add a big push for us going forward this weekend and hopefully we’ll get that win.” said midfielder Lee Nguyen on Tuesday. Having these two key players back at a key moment against the LA Galaxy is important for the Rev’s after their recent struggles. Come Saturday at 7:30 p.m., the New England Revolution are looking to re-establish their dominance at home, something they will need to do to help turn their season around. “It’s always nice to play here at home. We always feel good. I think we were a little unlucky in these last games, but we know what we are capable of. We know that our fans always give us this extra energy, which is important. I just hope this time we won’t let them down. We know what our duties are. Like I said before, we need to stick together like a team. We need to help each other and I know that we will get a good result.” said defender Antonio Delamea on Tuesday. Saturday’s game against Jermaine Jones and the Galaxy can be found on CSNNE as well as NBC in the Boston area.

New England Revolution Revolution Send Fans Home Happy In Record Breaking Win Published 3 days ago on October 16, 2017 By Connor Marshall With any hopes of making the playoffs diminished thanks to a New York Red Bulls win last week, it may have seemed like there was nothing left to play for in the Revolution’s season. But in fact the Revs had an opportunity to do something that had not been done in the club’s history. Win 12 games at home in a single season. They have had 11 home wins twice before including the magical MLS Cup run in 2014. The Revs were also looking to play spoiler to an New York City FC team who would clinch a playoff bye with a win. So in the final home match of the season, the Revolution wanted to give the faithful at Gillette one last time to celebrate this year. After a quiet first 25 minutes the Revolution encountered a game changer they had seen four times in the past five games, a red card. This time though, the call went in the Revolution’s favor after 2nd year player Jack Harrison slid studs up into Teal Bunbury. The Revolution were a man up with plenty of time left. The Revs failed to capitalize in the first half entering halftime in a scoreless draw. Then in the 51st minute, Diego Fagundez took a shot from just outside the box on an assist from Andrew Ferrall for his first goal since June 3rd. Later in the second minute of stoppage time, Fagundez found the back of the net again on his own rebound off NYCFC goalkeeper Sean Johnson. The Revolution were minutes away from a shutout when only seconds after Fagundez’s second goal, NYCFC sent the ball up field and it fell to Khiry Shelton who headed it over Brad Knighton who was visibly upset that he had lost his clean sheet on such a freak play. Despite that scare, the Revolution ended the game on top 2-1. The win was a bizarre, bittersweet moment for the team. They had broken a club record for home wins despite not making the playoffs. The Revolution have one more match on Sunday in Montreal before they say goodbye to the 2017 season.

The awards are handed out each year to players from both the senior team and the Revolution Academy. Antonio Delamea won both Defender of the Year and Most Valuable Player. Delamea has proven to be one of the Revolutions best signings when he transferred from Slovenian side Olimpija Ljubljana, becoming the first Slovenian to play in Major League Soccer. He scored one goal and one assist and played 2,547 minutes in 29 matches for the Revs this season. He was also added to a shortlist for both MLS defender and newcomer of the year. With the MVP win, Delamea joins a list of Revolution legends that include Shalrie Joseph, Matt Reis, and Taylor Twellman. The Player’s Player of the Year which is voted on by the clubs players was awarded to Teal Bunbury. His season had a frustrating start. After spending most of the season on the bench, Bunbury made his first start on July 2nd against the Philadelphia Union. Since then he has scored 7 goals in 14 games becoming one of the most in-form players in Major League Soccer. In an interview on this week’s Far Post Podcast, Teal Bunbury was asked about the ups and downs of the season. “I’m always a guy who wants to work hard in training, wants to work hard in the games but just want’s a fair shot” he said. “If I’m out there I’m playing for my teammates”. For the fourth straight year, the Humanitarian of the Year went to Kelyn Rowe. Rowe’s presence off the field has been as important as his contributions on the field. He’s worked with several charities including the Jessie Rees Foundation and Kelyn’s NEGU (Never Ever Give Up) Crew. The latter was started in 2015 and gives children with cancer a chance to experience a Revolution game and walk around the Gillette Stadium pitch. This year was also a highlight year for Rowe on the field. He was called up to the United States National Team for the first time to compete in the CONCACAF Gold Cup in which he scored a goal against Nicaragua and helped the US win the tournament. The award for Academy Player of the Year went to Joe Britto. The 18-year-old midfielder from Connecticut has been called up to youth national team camps since 2013. He supports the Revolution, Benfica, Portugal, and the US Men’s National Team, and his favorite players are Neymar, Pablo Aimar and Christiano Ronaldo. Britto is attending UNC Charlotte who was the Conference USA regular season champions in 2016.

This is thanks to the New York Red Bulls beating the Vancouver Whitecaps Saturday, securing the 6th and final playoff spot in the eastern conference. New York won decisively 3-0 having 56.8% possession and 18 total shots to Vancouver’s 3. The Revolution’s chances of making the playoffs were slim and relied on a lot of scoreboard watching for both the team and the fans. They needed to win both their final two games and New York would have to get less than three points in their final three games. Before Saturday, the Red Bulls were on an eight-game winless streak. That streak did not include a loss in the US Open Cup Final against Sporting Kansas City. New England still has two matches remaining this season. Their final home match is on Sunday, October 15th. That match will be fan appreciation night at Gillette Stadium and all week leading up to the match. The last match of the season will see them travel to Montreal to take on the Impact.
