The New England Revolution have been one of the most consistent teams in MLS in terms of success in recent years, with playoff appearances almost every season and four MLS Cup appearances, though they have yet to actually win the big one despite their gang of appearances. Steve Nichol is a fine coach and the longest tenured in MLS, having held his job since way back in 2002. Unfortunately, the last couple of years haven't been very kind to New England. In 2008 and 2009 they failed to escape the first round of the playoffs and in 2010 their squad limped to the finish line and missed the playoffs all together.
This season started promising for NE but they've dropped a couple of games and now sit at 2-3-3, out of the playoff race for the time being. They do have a potential firecracker on their squad with the recent addition of Benny Feilhaber, one of my favorite US Men's National Team players. Other than Feilhaber, Shalrie Joesph is the guy to watch out for on offense for the Revs, as he currently leads the team in goals with three and looks to well outpace his season last year where he scored only four the entire season.
