Hey there and welcome to the New England Revolution vs. Chivas USA live game thread! Let's get down to the nitty gritty here: this is a match that even the struggling Revolution should win. Chivas can't score - like, literally can't buy a bucket - and in the last three games they've conceded a whopping eleven goals. This is a game ripe for the taking, and with another two matches in the next seven days, it might be the last chance the Revs get to play without truly tired legs.
But hey, this is also the much-anticipated return of Shalrie Joseph! The longtime Revs captain is in the starting XI for the Goats in what will be his first appearance in Foxboro since being traded earlier this month.
