New England Revolution Utilizing Extra Week Preparing For FC Dallas

The New England Revolution got hit by the unpredictable weather in New England as the team was forced to cancel their home opener this past weekend against Orlando City SC. Despite the cancellation of the game that Revolution get one more week of training to prepare for their upcoming road trip to take on FC Dallas.

The trip to Dallas is the second road match this year for the Rev’s but Head Coach Jay Heaps made sure to point out the differences between playing against Colorado and playing against Dallas.

“[We] have to learn from the Colorado trip, but in the end, different animals all together in the sense that first game of the year, you’re feeling each other out. I think Dallas is going to be six games in now in terms of having CONCACAF [Champions’ League], in terms of playing a midweek game coming up on Wednesday. They’re already basically seven, eight games in. We have to be ready for a midseason game.”

With Dallas playing in the Champions League in addition to their already played MLS games their team has more game film available to be consumed by the Revolution coaching staff. But as Heaps smartly points out watching game film doesn’t always show what a team is going to do in their next match.

Yes and no. I think it also puts us in a spot where I think that they may change guys and they can be a little bit more creative, because they got some guys some rest from the weekend and go after it on Wednesday, and we can see a couple of those guys that played against Kansas City be back in. It’s going to be a week where our preparation is going to be about what we think we need to do to beat them, but at the same time, can’t control what they’re going to do. We can see what we think their trends are, see what their tendencies are, but at the same time, it’s going to be hard to pick the personnel.”

Playing the defending MLS Champions is always going to be a challenge for any squad, but looking up and down the New England lineup shows a Revolution team that is excited to take on this Dallas team.

“If you’re not looking forward to it and taking advantage of an opportunity like this, then I don’t know what – you shouldn’t be on the field, I guess” said midfielder Scott Caldwell. “Everyone has got to look forward to this and want to prove themselves against the best. Not only proving themselves every day, but against good competition you show and you can really use a good result to kind of push us forward in this beginning part of the season.”

For those who are anxious to watch Revolution soccer after two weeks off they can tune in at 8:00pm eastern to watch the Revolution take on the reigning  Supporters Shield Champions.

State of Trifecta Network

The last two months have been a whirlwind. There are no words that can truly describe what has happened to us as a website.

We went from a site that was getting an average of 2-3k viewers a week to getting that in a single day on average since the start of June. Since the start of June, we have been a credentialed member of the media to several of the teams in the area and look to increase that in the Fall.

Ultimately everything we create is meant to be read/consumed by our readers, you.  Often it is tough to get a vibe on what is or isn’t working in terms of content. That is why we would greatly appreciate if you guys give your thoughts in the comment section of this post to help us curate better content.

One thing we are looking forward to in the Fall is more reader/writer interactions. We will start doing Q and A’s related to all the Boston sports teams as well as a live Fantasy Football podcast where we will take your lineup questions.

The launch of the Fantasy podcast has yet to be decided, but expect it ahead of week 1 of the NFL season with a draft podcast. We will also be launching a Fantasy Football league to run alongside it if interested in joining fill out the contact form below with your information.

Trifecta Network is a growing platform, we will always be free and made for our readers. We appreciate your readership and want to build the best product we can to ensure the best Boston sports experience in the city.

You may have noticed more video content on the site, it is an area we are looking to improve, but not focus solely on. Many sports sites are going away from traditional writing, a move that I believe is a mistake.

If you ever have any thoughts or comments please feel free to reach out to us.
