Benny at MLS media day
Benny Feilhaber lobbed some truth bombs on the USMNT situation with Jurgen Klinsmann today. Reporters who still cover the squad will no doubt have more complete quotes and analysis and soon, but personally, I agree with Feilhaber a lot (more so than with Wambach or LD's comments, for example).

TSG’s MLS Preseason Prediction Midseason Review: Not Pretty (Part I)

"What have I done!"

Every year before the MLS season we do an "MLS Predictions" column.

Every year we say the same thing.

"We're dropping science on ya."

And then every year at the All-Star break we say the same thing, "We meant humor."

We're big on accountability here at TSG and we're also big on looking back and skewering ourselves on some of the more asinine things we've said.

The writing was on the wall as the New England Revolution added midfielders after the 2012 season, but it was still bit of a head-turning development to see the Revs part ways with midfielder Benny Feilhaber.

New England declined to pick up the option on Feilhaber's contract, with sources telling SBI that Feilhaber's large contract option make it unlikely that he returns to MLS in 2013.

Benny Feilhaber was hardly an every-game starter at the end of the season for the New England Revolution and early offseason signs indicate that his time with the club might soon near its end.

The New England Revolution signed Mali international Kalif Cisse on a free transfer on Monday, acquiring the 28-year-old midfielder on a free transfer from England's Bristol City.

As far as the MLS Disciplinary Committee goes, there's apparently no such thing as a week off.

While most MLS clubs were enjoying some free time due to the international break, the MLS Disciplinary Committee was hard at work and they handed out three punishments for actions that happened prior to the stoppage in league play on Monday.

Benny Feilhaber may have just sealed his fate in Foxboro.

With the Revolution down a goal late at PPL Park on Saturday, Feilhaber, who played an inspired brand of soccer in the latter stages,might havethreaded a killer pass to Dimitry Imbongo orJerry Bengtson to level it.

Hello and welcome to the New England Revolution vs. Columbus Crew live game thread! This is the third and final installment in the 2012 series between the two teams, a series which the Crew currently lead with a 1-0-1 record. The Revs carry a slight advantage as they will be the home team, but their last home encounter against Columbus ended in a 0-0 draw, so nothing is guaranteed.

With the entire country enjoying a long weekend filled with barbecues, fireworks, and running for the ice cream truck, the New England Revolution puttered along on their march towards the end of the season with two very different looking draws at home.

While the offensive renaissance continued on Wednesday night against Chivas USA (the Revs scored 3 first half goals), it all came to a screeching halt on Saturday night with an indescribably poor 0-0 draw against Eastern Conference rival, Philadelphia Union.

The New England Revolution made history tonight as they extended their winless streak to 10 games, more than any other team in the club's history.

Playing host to the Philadelphia Union for the only time this season, coach Jay Heaps decided to shake up the lineup tonight in lieu of recent performances as well as various injuries and fatigue as they entered the second of their three game home-stand spanning just 8 days.

Hey there and welcome to the New England Revolution vs. Chivas USA live game thread! Let's get down to the nitty gritty here: this is a match that even the struggling Revolution should win.

It's game time again, and this time the New England Revolution have traveled to Ohio to take on the Columbus Crew. A win here would snap a seven game winless run and a four-match losing streak, but history is not on the side of the Revs; since 1996, New England's away record against the Crew is any abysmal 6-15-6.

Settle in on your couches, crack open a frosty drink, grab the chips, and get ready for what promises to be a really, really long night for the New England Revolution as they take on the Chicago Fire at Toyota Park this evening. The Revs have never won in Bridgeview during the regular season, and given the way the team has been playing - especially on the road - they don't look to likely to turn that little streak around right now.

The New England Revolution are facing the Chicago Fire at Toyota Park on Saturday night. Bridgeview is definitely not a favored environment for the Revs to try and break their six-game winless streak, but nevertheless they must try. Chicago is sitting pretty in fourth place with a game in hand on the teams above them, and will be looking at this fixture as an easy three points at home.

For the Revs, it's all about wins from here on out. The time for adjusting and fixing mistakes is over. The time for producing results is now. Sitting in 8th place in the Eastern Conference standings with 23 points, the New England Revolution basically need to go on a late-season tear if they want to keep their playoff dreams alive.

With a tough run on the road, playing 3 games and only securing 1 point (against Kansas City), the Revs will hope that they can return to winning ways back at Gillette Stadium.

The Union (6-10-2) sit just behind the Revs (6-9-5) towards the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings, but have found inspired form under interim coach John Hackworth who stepped in when Peter Nowak and the club parted ways in June.

So, the transfer window opens next week. And the Revs currently maintain a 28-man roster. What we already know is that the Revolution are currently trialing guys, specifically forwards. Now, it's no real shock that Jay Heaps is looking for another forward to play up top with Saer Sene--someone who, as Abram put it earlier this week, can provide the Revs with that secondary scoring threat, which at this point they desperately lack.

The New England Revolution will take the rainy Gillette Stadium pitch tonight looking for their first win of the 2012 season against an Eastern Conference opponent. The Fire come into this game with a record of 5-4-3 and a road record of 2-3-1. Both clubs are still feeling the burn of being eliminated from the US Open Cup tournament on Tuesday, both by lower division sides, and will surely be hungry for three points to help ease the pain.

What To Do With Benny Feilhaber: A 2012 Statistical Breakdown

The Bent Musket at related • 0 views

To state the obvious and tell you what you already know: there are some serious questions surrounding Benny Feilhaber right now. Benny went from shoe-in starter to bench-warmer as 2012 unfolded. Rumors of Feilhaber butting heads with Jay Heaps as well as his own teammates started to circulate. Questions started arising mid-season from media and players alike on whether Feilhaber was pulling his weight.

The Bent Musket at related • 0 views

Benny Feilhaber is a commodity, there's no question. A pre-Jurgen Klinsmann era US National Team frontrunner with a killer through ball, Feilhaber is known as a quality midfielder with an attacking presence and a determination to get back into the USMNT picture. But what seems to have come to light in the past few weeks is that perhaps he doesn't fit into Jay Heaps' long-term plans.

There's an old sports cliché about how "sometimes a team just has your number", and I think no truer words could be said about this Toronto FC team in 2012. For some strange reason, the Revs struggle against the worst team in the league, and it showed once again on Saturday night.

Now let's be completely fair here: New England DOMINATED this match.

Often times in professional sports (sometimes unfairly) a head coach's success is measured by how you fare in rivalry games. If Sunday night is a sign of what's to come, Jay Heaps is going to be really popular in New England soccer circles.

Coupling a dynamic offensive performance with a solid back four, the Revolution defeated New York 2-0 in front of the home fans in Foxboro, besting their win total from last year.
