The best moments from Revolution v. Minnesota FC

Let’s relive the Revs’ win.

MLS: Minnesota United FC at New England Revolution Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Revolution took the game to Minnesota United FC, as they defeated the visitors 5-2 on Saturday afternoon. If you missed this one then you missed a lot, so let’s get you caught up.

Moment of the Match

Full disclosure, I’m a big Chris Tierney fan.

Sure, the guy has shortcomings, but he’s a local product with a great story that brings it every single week. With this in mind, I loved seeing him score a penalty against former roommate Bobby Shuttleworth on his 200th start.

Quote of the Match

“I think Juan’s really a number 9 and not a number 10 and then when you have Lee in there we can find more movement and the attack flows a little bit better.”-Diego Fagundez.

Diego’s right: Juan Agudelo is a pure goalscorer, which is a skill that has gotten him caps with the US Men’s National Team. This means he should be playing as a striker. In spite of this suggestion, head coach Jay Heaps has used Agudelo as a number 10 for the first two games of the season. In the third game, however, he played up top with Kei Kamara. The results were positive, as Agudelo grabbed a brace.

Here’s a quick reminder: Simple is sometimes better.

Tweet of the Match

I know Revs fans were hoping for more wins at this point (which might have been a bit unrealistic given the team’s schedule), but at least you aren’t Minnesota fans. As a general rule, you never want to be compared to Chivas USA. Never, ever.

Picture(s) of the Match

Winners stick together, right? Here we see Patriots wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell serve as the game’s honorary captain. I don’t really follow throwball, but it’s cool to see the two teams interact.
