New England Revolution 2014 Season
After a few down seasons since their last MLS Playoff appearance in 2009, the New England Revolution found themselves back in the postseason in 2013, as the #3 seed in the Eastern Conference. The Revs started to find their way back when they selected former player Jay Heaps to be their latest head coach. Heaps, who had a reputation as a physical, hard-nosed defender, sought to instill those same qualities in his version of the Revs, and has mostly done so. Diego Fagundez, a Uruguayan midfielder (and a Homegrown Player for New England), led the 2013 Revolution in scoring. Another name to keep an eye on is forward Charlie Davies, the former U.S. national-team wunderkind who has never really recovered his form after being seriously injured in a 2009 auto accident.
10/28/13 - The New England Revolution are back in the MLS Cup Playoffs for the first time in four seasons. They’ll face two-seed Sporting Kansas City in the Eastern Conference Semifinals with the first game at Gillette Stadium November 2. The postseason berth came after a must-win regular season closer against Columbus on Sunday. The finale shutout was New England’s fourteenth of the season, a team record. Matt Reis became the first goalkeeper in MLS history to go undefeated after playing 10 or more games. The Revolution are one of the hottest teams of the field right now and have peaked at the right time. Finishing 4-0-2, it was the first winning season for the squad since 2009.
