The Couch Captain
Matty Jollie's weekly series critiquing management from the blogger's couch.
In front of the home fans for the first time since the Boston Marathon tragedy, the New England Revolution returned back to their attacking style of soccer and defeated Philadelphia for the first time in team history. Is it a sign of things to come?
The team's biggest strength in 2012, the midfield looks like it could be even more talented and versatile heading into 2013. Will the additions of Cisse and Dorman, as well as another year of seasoning for Rowe and Fagundez, propel the Revs in 2013?
In 2012, Bobby Shuttleworth emerged as a solid #2 goalkeeper in MLS with a strong final month of the season. With Matt Reis returning for another year in 2013, does the depth chart stay the same? Or is it time to anoint a new #1 in New England?
For the first time in 10 matches, Matty Jollie breaks down a Revs victory in this week's Couch Captain. New faces in the lineup, as well as familiar faces in new places on the field, and we take a look at the home stretch.
