Revolution 0-1 FC Dallas: Player Ratings and Man of the Match

The New England Revolution lost and lost ugly to FC Dallas on Saturday, conceding a late goal to go down 1-0 as their offensive woes continue. There wasn't a whole lot that could be considered redeemable about that performance, but let's see what we could come up with. Steve and Corey contributed ratings this week.


Bobby Shuttleworth: Average rating - 4 (Steve 4, Corey 4)

Steve: Made some great saves, but on at least two occasions he came out and was beaten to the ball. Haphazard outing...Corey: Fine but numbers don't lie. He's 0-2 on the season.

Kevin Alston: Average rating - 4 (Steve 4, Corey 4)

Steve: Defensively o.k. at best, but that chance? Oh dear God...Corey: Poor positioning, not great marking. Oh and, you know, screwed up our best chance on goal.

Jose Goncalves: Average Rating - 5.75 (Steve 5.5, Corey 6)

Steve: It was a pretty good outing, but he got bailed out more than once, especially when he let Cooper pick his pocket and set up Ferreira for a clear chance...Corey: Another superb shift.

A.J. Soares: Average rating - 6 (Steve 6, Corey 6)

Steve: One of the few performers I liked out there...Corey: Saved our asses on a handful of occasions.

Andrew Farrell: Average rating - 6 (Steve 6, Corey 6)

Steve: This kid. Fast, aggressive, plays it on the floor. Easily one of the best on the field in the first four games...Corey: I just can't get enough of this kid.

Lee Nguyen: Average rating - 4.25 (Steve 4.5, Corey 4)

Steve: He was tricky in parts and combined well sometimes, but the creativity and ability to direct the attack we saw last year seems to be gone. Starting to become a concern...Corey: Poor performance. Seems to have lost all his old tricks. Benny-esque shots on goal. He bagged those last year.

Clyde Simms: Average rating - 5 (Steve 5, Corey 5)

Steve: 75% passing, 0/2 on tackles, but had a block, an interception, and 4 recoveries. Thoroughly average...Corey: Pretty good, can't complain.

Juan Toja: Average rating - 5.25 (Steve 5, Corey 5.5)

Steve: One of the best passers on the team, actually, but he's not gelling too well with his teammates due to his free-roaming style. Also needs to cut out losing the ball on the dribble...Corey: Active but needs to start providing some attack.

Diego Fagundez: Average rating - 5.5 (Steve 5.5, Corey 5.5)

Steve: Accurate passer, good on the dribble, got the shot off, was a clear point of attack. However, all of his six incomplete passes were in the final third...Corey: Did well tracking back and was involved often but squandered some good chances...maybe he's still not ready?

Ryan Guy: Average rating - 4.5 (Steve 4, Corey 5)

Steve: Not a great game, but it's not his fault. Played out of position, the whole attack was out of sync. However, he did have a recovery and two interceptions, all in or around the final third...Corey: I liked Guy in this one because he gives us more balance but didn't help us much in the attack.

Jerry Bengtson: Average rating - 4.75 (Steve 4.5, Corey 5)

Steve: I want to see better movement. He's not a creator, and doesn't need to be, but he needs to get open a bit more, especially when he knows the service has been subpar...Corey: Need more. Straight up. Either he starts producing or sell him this summer.

Kelyn Rowe (sub): Average rating - 4.75 (Steve 4.5, Corey 5)

Steve: Revs had their best run of play after he came in, so there's that, but wasn't sparking the attack. He did have 4 recoveries and 2 interceptions, though...Corey: Proving he's better as a sub, but not helping us with our biggest issue this time.

Andy Dorman (sub): Average rating - N/A

Chris Tierney (sub): Average rating - N/A
