Revs come out flat in 2010 – Galaxy 1 – Revolution 0By: Dave | March 28th, 2010
The Revs started the 2010 season on a poor foot, struggling to create chances in a tedious match versus 2009 MLS cup runner up LA Galaxy Saturday. After falling behind in the 6th minute when Edson Buddle connected with a beautiful Landon Donovan cross to head home a goal, New England struggled to produce anything very exciting.
Some take aways:
Shalrie Joseph Shalrie Joseph Shalrie Joseph. My adage from last year looks to remain true in 2010, the Revs NEED Joseph on the pitch. Without out him Saturday the never really stood a chance.
New additions provide a silver lining – Rookie Zach Schilawski looked great at times and posed the biggest threat for LA defenders. GK Preston Burpo had a good game making a big stop in the last 10 minutes of play keeping the game manageable. With Matt Reis hurt and Brad Knighton taken by Philly in the expansion draft, the GK will be an important position to watch.
