As we get closer to Saturday's match against the dreaded New York Red Bulls, our Revolution links will focus on what to expect heading into the weekend, which at this point is likely to be viewed as a must win for the Revs. Also be sure to get caught up on your UCL and CCL news, too!
Brian O'Connell offers some further insight into Jay Heaps' plans for his squad ahead of the upcoming 3-game stretch, including the possibility of moving Ryan Guy to center back. It sounds like we'll be in store for a lot of roster tweaking in the coming week--should be interesting.
As the Revs look to put their injury woes in the rear-view, the Red Bulls have got a slew of injury problems right in the headlights. With such a battered back line, the Revolution attack will be hoping they can make the most of their opportunities on Saturday.
Kevin McCauley breaks down yesterday's semi-final match (and provide plenty of entertaining GIF's) which saw Bayern Munich win on penalties. The German side will advance to the Champions League final where they will take on Chelsea on their home turf. Crazy stuff.
While we are on the subject, it turns out that Tuesday's semi-final between Barcelona and Chelsea surpassed the previous record of 12,233 tweets per second (which was during this year's Super Bowl). Click to find out how many tweets per second the new record is at now.
Last night was also the CONCACAF Champions League Final between Monterrey and Santos Laguna, but you probably didn't know about that because you were watching the Bruins. And I'm sorry for reminding you about that just there. But, at any rate, Monterrey won again. Click the link for the full recap.
For you EPL fans out there (I assume most of you), check out who The Shin Guardian picked as their best XI for this past season as it now draws to a close. Former Revolution darling Clint Dempsey makes the cut, as one would expect, and my boy David Silva got edged out because of what I can only assume is a conspiracy against his awesomeness. And the representatives from Newcastle totally deserve the recognition here.
