Earlier this year we took a look at the departed New England Revolution players released in the off-season to see where they ended up. Well it's been almost two months, let's check in on the boys and see where they are, how much they are playing and if so, in what position are they being employed.

The Departed: The 2011 Revs, Where'd They Go?

A total of thirteen players from the 2011 New England Revolution are not back for the 2012 season. If you just awoke from your off-season soccer hibernation you must be wondering where they all went. Many have moved on to other clubs, some are currently unemployed. Using the world wide web I did some light research to figure out where our friends are now and how they're doing.

Change is abound in New England.Â

A new coach, a new system and a boatload of new players have been put in place to turn around the once-proud franchise that has fallen on hard times. The Revolution have missed the playoffs in each of the last two years and finished dead last in the Eastern Conference while tying for the second-worst goal differential in all of MLS last season.

Time for the 2011 season grades to (finally) continue! Corey, Matty, and I have looked at the four major areas of the team - goalkeeping, defense, midfield, forwards - and assigned our grades on a 4.0 scale.

Unfortunately for the New England Revolution, we don't curve based on the rest of the league.

Heads down. Hands on hips. That was the unofficial pose of the Revolution defense in 2011.

After giving away goals at a philanthropic rate (58, the second-most in MLS last season) it's not a stretch to say that the biggest task head coach Jay Heaps faces this offseason is improving his team's porous D.

Today was the first stage of the MLS Re-Entry draft. Like last year it was a fairly quiet round, with most teams choosing to pass instead of taking a player at their current salary or at a bona fide offer. Only 3 players were selected in the draft. Arturo Alvarez was picked up by Chivas USA, Columbus picked up Carlos Mendes, and New England grabbed Danleigh Borman.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Revolution were unable to stop their skid at home Saturday night as they fell 2-1 to the San Jose Earthquakes at Gillette Stadium. Both teams had been previously eliminated from playoff contention and were competing for naught but pride and jobs.

San Jose opened the scoring through Chris Wondolowski in the first half.

Defensive miscues and a lack of inventiveness in the final third assured the Revs (5-15-12, 27 points) would finish with a 2-1 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes (7-11-14, 35 points).

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. With their postseason hopes officially over, the New England Revolution's final three games won't be just about finishing the season with pride.

Following the Revolution's elimination from the postseason race, fourth-year veteran Chris Tierney suggested that "jobs are on the line" going into the final three games of season.

Although that may seem drastic, Tierney's point isn't terribly off base. With the team chained to the basement, it stands to reason that more than a few Revolution players may be playing in their final games in Foxboro this month.

Saturday night in Foxboro the Revolution once again squandered an early lead and succumbed to defeat to Seattle 2-1. Sadly, it's a script all too familiar to the members of the 2011 squad, and it certainly sticks out as the team's biggest shortcoming. After surrendering two more goals on Saturday, the "goals against" tally for New England eclipsed the 50 goal milestone, as the Revs have now conceded 51 times this season, putting them behind only Toronto FC for worst in the league.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Sixteen-year-old Diego Fagundez scored in his first MLS start, but it was Fredy Montero who made the difference in Seattle Sounders FC's 2-1 victory over the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium Saturday night.

The Columbian capitalized on sloppy defending from the Revs in the 36th and 47th minutes to overturn Fagundez's 35th minute opener and improve the visitors to 16-6-9 (57 points) on the season and keep the pressure on Los Angeles in the Supporters Shield race.

The Scorpions are 4-3-1 so far this season, good enough for third place in the NASL standings.

Re-Entry Draft Stage 2: Unexciting And Expensive

There was a time when I liked a couple players in the MLS Re-Entry Draft for the Seattle Sounders to pick up in Stage Two and talk into less money. First Bobby Boswell renegotiated with the Houston Dynamo and then Bobby Convey went to Sporting Kansas City at a cut rate (rumors say 200K$). Now the list of available players is absent of the really appealing names.
