With eleven days since their last match against San Jose, the Timbers midfield and backline improved upon this in their match on Wednesday night versus the New England Revolution, a theme that will have to continue on Sunday against Toronto FC.

The Bent Musket at related • 0 views

As always, the Revolution didn't play badly for most of the night, but for the seventh time in 2016 they don't have a win to show for it. This is a problem.

So yesterday's 3-0 loss to DC United was not the best game for the New England Revolution. Like many games in 2016, they started off well, failed to score and then bad things happened.

D.C. United was missing their coach due to a suspension and faced a New England Revolution side that was also inconsistent and underachieving. But the Black-and-Red persevered en route to a 3-0 win that will hopefully buoy some confidence, but in the meantime, let's look at some things that occurred during the game that caught our eye.
