Seattle took the lead through Kenny Cooper in just the fourth minute, but New England would equalize on an early second half own goal and then found the winner in stoppage time through Davies, despite playing down a man after Tyler Rudy saw a 60th minute red card.

Charlie Davies grabbed the winner from the spot for a short-handed Revolution, who claimed a 2-1 victory over the Sounders in a match that featured a pair of curious refereeing decisions.

Here are some quick thoughts on the penultimate preseason match for the Revolution:

-It was something of a surprise to see Revolution coach Jay Heaps use a lineup packed with regulars against the same opponent they'll face again in 11 days and with points on the line.

On Twitter, I have seen more and more MLS pundits sitting firmly behind the MLS Players Union, wanting to see them hold strong and fight for free agency.

This is an interesting position for these pundits, who over the years have been quite staunch in a belief that I would characterize as "MLS Knows Best.

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

Quick quiz: Which team from the Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference can best compete for the landmark 20thleague title this season?

Answer: It's a trick question, of course. Far more likely that your 2015 title winner comes out of the West.

That would be a re-configured West, one that was already stacked and packed before shedding the dead weight of Chivas USA, exchanging the dumpster fire of a club for powerful Sporting Kansas City and a Houston Dynamo side now guided by the accomplished Owen Coyle.
