What happens when your team is unbeaten in their last six matches with a goal differential of +8? You start to turn heads.
That's exactly the case for the New England Revolution, who have gained a lot of positive media recognition recently. Andrew Farrell is the most recent player to receive plaudits as he's been nominated for the Etihad Airways MLS Player of the Month award.
Farrell's transition to center back wasn't exactly smooth as the Louisville product referred to the start of 2015 as the "two worst games ever." Since then, Farrell has grown with each week, proving that he's a bona fide MLS center back.
April was a banner month for Farrell, who played all 360 minutes of the Revs’ four games. During this span, the team went 3-0-1, recording three shutouts and allowing only one goal.
Farrell faces stern competition for the Player of the Month award in the form of Benny Feilhaber (Sporting Kansas City), Ethan Finlay (Columbus Crew SC), Sebastian Giovinco (Toronto FC), Kei Kamara (Columbus Crew SC). Should he win the honor, Farrell would be just the sixth Revolution player to do so, joining Lee Nguyen (October 2014), Clint Dempsey (April 2005), Pat Noonan (October 2003), Taylor Twellman (May 2002 and September 2005) and Walter Zenga (September 1997).
