On Wednesday afternoon, the New England Revolution lost Patrick Mullins and Tony Taylor to New York City FC through the Expansion Draft. Revolution fans took to Twitter to express their mostly negative feelings about the news and to thank the outgoing strikers. Also sharing their reactions were Mullins, Taylor and Steve Neumann.
Taylor retweeted a few news sources before sending the following tweets:
Wish all the best to my teammates, staff and fans @NERevolution. Was a great ride. God bless all of you!— Tony Taylor (@TTaylor777) December 10, 2014
Honored to be selected by @NYCFC. Looking forward to the new season!— Tony Taylor (@TTaylor777) December 10, 2014
Mullins also conveyed excitement about joining a new club while showing appreciation for his former team and its fans.

Neumann congratulated fellow rookie Mullins on the move before putting out an ad for a new roommate. Mullins later helped the cause by retweeting Neumann.
I guess it's time to put out a craigslist add for a roommate @p_mullins_7— Steve Neumann (@neumannrevs4) December 10, 2014
