Tierney v. Knighton: Who you got?!
The New England Revolution are currently preparing for the 2017 season, but we've already seen some mid-season flair.
During a recent practice, Chris Tierney pulled off some clever footwork to split a couple of defenders during a game of 6v2. The backheel flick was a sight to be seen.
Nguyen, Herivaux, and Woodberry are rooting for the Patriots.
Much of New England will be glued to the television on Sunday when the Patriots face the Steelers in the AFC Championship Game. Among those that will be rooting for the Patriots are members of the New England Revolution.
In a video posted 24 hours before the big game, London Woodberry, Zachary Herivaux, and Lee Nguyen offered their best wishes.
Rowe returns to practice after being hospitalized last week.
When the New England Revolution took the field against Columbus Crew SC this past weekend, there was a noticeable absence from the starting lineup. That's because Kelyn Rowe had to miss the game after being hospitalized due to an infection and inflammation in his small intestine.

Watch as Jay Heaps shows off his soccer skills.
After just nine minutes of play, the New England Revolution's game against the Carolina RailHawks was halted due to inclement weather. The delay lasted over two hours, giving players unexpected time in the locker room. What does a team do in such a situation?
Don't expect Caldwell's form to dip after failing to make the ballot for the MLS All-Star game.
Scott Caldwell deserves to be on the MLS All-Star ballot, according to head coach Jay Heaps.
Last week, the league announced the players available to represent MLS in this summer's All-Star game against Liverpool.
Heaps talks about giving Nguyen the armband.
Every player wants to represent his country, especially if the stakes are high. This is why it was so disappointing that Lee Nguyen didn't make the US National Team's Copa America roster.
Originally part of the provisional 40-man list, Nguyen didn't make the final 23 as selected by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann.
Take a look at the Silver Fox.
With style that would be better suited for the runway than the soccer pitch, it's safe to say that Lee Nguyen is a fashion-forward individual. In the past, the New England Revolution midfielder has given style tips to the likes of The Boston Globe and Boston Common.
Lee Nguyen continues his good form as the Revs win 2-1.
The New England Revolution will enter the Copa America break with a win after defeating the Seattle Sounders 2-1 on Saturday night. Aaron Kovar's early strike was negated by Lee Nguyen's penalty and Femi Hollinger-Janzen's long-range shot to give the home side three points.
Was referee Fotis Bazakos right to point to the spot?
One week after burying a penalty against FC Dallas, Lee Nguyen was once again called upon to face down an opposing keeper. The silver-haired Nguyen made no mistake of the opportunity, putting the New England Revolution back on level terms with the Seattle Sounders.
Seattle should be able to get down their left side but a counter down Seattle's right will have to be stopped. Can do they do it?
New England hasn't really changed its attacking model with the addition of Kei Kamara but they mortgaged their future on the 31 year old striker. 13 points in 13 games is a pretty poor record and somehow worse than ours (same points, more matches) and with only two wins on the season.
The Revs are awarded a PK, but was it the right choice?
Mere minutes after referee Silviu Petrescu awarded FC Dallas a penalty kick, the New England Revolution got one of their own. Was it right for Petrescu to point to the spot? Let's take a look.
The play in question starts with a corner kick that creates chaos in the box.
Jurgen Klinsmann has announced his 23-man roster for the 2016 Copa America tournament this summer.

The Revs are definitely feeling a boost after earning their first win since early April.
The New England Revolution's swagger and confidence is back. Three days removed from handily beating the Chicago Fire 2-0, the Revs are back at work and gearing up for a squad that many picked in preseason as favorites to win MLS Cup.
Lee Nguyen is glad to have Kei Kamara on his team.
It's been quite the week for Kei Kamara.
On Tuesday, rumors emerged that the forward could leave Columbus Crew SC. Two days later, the rumors became reality when Kamara was traded to the New England Revolution. The former MLS MVP candidate then arrived in Foxborough on Friday before starting against the Chicago Fire on Saturday.
It's been a long time since the Revs and three points were synonymous. On Saturday night, that relationship was forged yet again.
It took 43 days, but the New England Revolution have once again secured three points. Slated against the Chicago Fire on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium, head coach Jay Heaps' side emerged with a 2-0 win, answering the call on what was tabbed as a must-win match.
Lee Nguyen, is this real life?
Some people like to complain about short corners but New England Revolution fans won't have a negative thing to say about what transpired in the 22nd minute of Saturday's game against Chicago Fire.
With the game scoreless, Lee Nguyen played a short corner to Kelyn Rowe, who proceeded to move the ball to Scott Caldwell.
Nigel de Jong is back and two more things you should know.

Great Football Gear has designed a Lee Nguyen shirt that you're going to want to buy.
With so few clothing options, it can be difficult to rep your favorite MLS team in style. The people at Great Football Gear are trying to change that with their new line of shirts.
The soccer-oriented company is selling shirts that feature silhouettes of some of the league's most recognizable faces, including Didier Drogba, Andrea Pirlo, and Robbie Keane.
A solid 1-1 road draw seemed to be in the works before two stoppage time goals and more refereeing nightmares showed up.
Just when you think you're going to get a New England Revolution or Orlando City match that isn't controversial, stoppage time happened at the Orange Bowl.
The Revs and OCSC played out to a 2-2 draw that saw one of the fastest PK goals in MLS history from Kaka and ended with Lee Nguyen's first of the year from the spot in the 96th minute.
Lee Nguyen's game-winner should have counted, according to photogrammetry.
New England Revolution players and fans aren't going to like this one.

If the Revs are going to break the hex, they will need to score goals, something they haven't done from the run of play since the season opener against the Houston Dynamo.
The Revs are taking on NYC FC.
The New England Revolution are taking on New York City FC in the Bronx this afternoon, still searching for their first win of the 2016 season. New York has shown flashes offensively but, like the Revolution, they struggle to keep teams off the score sheet.

First USMNT loss to Guatemala since 1988.
The United States lost to Guatemala 2-0 and now sit in third place and outside of The Hex for CONCACAF World Cup qualifying.
First half goals from Guatemala's Rafael Morales and Carlos Ruiz put the USA into a hole they could not dig out of despite the efforts of second half sub Darlington Nagbe.
Charlie Davies is no longer on the Revolution's injury report.
The New England Revolution are completely healthy ahead of their trip to Yankee Stadium, according to the team's most recent injury report.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – It has been a frustrating season for the New England Revolution in all aspects of the field, but particularly offensively where, despite an abundance of talent, the production hasn't been there. For once, on Saturday evening, the Revolution offense showed just what it was capable of and it was a sight to behold as the team put on a master class offensively in a dominating 3-1 victory over New York City FC in front of 23,235 at Gillette Stadium.

Revolution midfielder Lee Nguyen might be one of the best playmakers in MLS, but he's never won the traditional no. 10 during his time in New England. And on Wednesday, he revealed why.
While much of the sports world turned its attention to the final game of Los Angeles Lakers guard/forward Kobe Bryant's playing career, Nguyen posted on Instagram that he adopted the no.
Who needs Kei?
It took 92 points to lead the league, with RVA Chieftans setting the pace. Captain Cyle Larin (ORL, $9.4) led the team with 24 points on a goal and an assist. Ignacio Piatti (MTL, $10.8) and Lee Nguyen (NE, $11.8) each notched a goal and an assist for 14 and 11 points respectively.

The warmup ahead of Copa America begins today, with half the roster of North American based players still with their clubs.
Normally when we preview these games we have a fairly good idea about who's going to play and why. This game however, the first meeting ever between the men's national teams of the United States and Puerto Rico, is very much a throw away game for the USA.
New England could be well represented this summer when the USA hosts the Copa America Centenario this summer.
Lee Nguyen, Je-Vaughn Watson and Zachary Herivaux have all been named to the preliminary 40-man rosters for their respective national teams ahead of this summers Copa America.
Nguyen has been far more active with the United States in recent years, making appearances in the January camps each of the last two years.
"The Duke" led the Revs to victory.
It's not very often that a play you draw up in practice works in a game which is why Lee Nguyen was a bit surprised when their corner kick strategy ended up with the ball in the back of the net.
Watch the Duke Fear the Duke.
It all started when Nguyen played a short corner to Kelyn Rowe, who found Scott Caldwell at the top of the box.
