New England has lost their last seven matches vs FCD, including two at home.

The last time New England defeated FC Dallas, there was a guy on the Revs' bench who, during his MLS debut one month earlier, had scored his professional goal. Although he didn't take the pitch against the team originally known as the Dallas Tornado, the Revs' first-ever Homegrown player — Diego Fagundez — has, as they say, come a long way.

Last season, they struggled mightily with both; other teams leveraged size and strength to keep the Revs from playing their planned, on-the-floor style, while it wasn't until late September that the team managed to score a set-piece goal.

Should Revolution hire a club legend as next head coach?

Share your thoughts in today's open thread.

The last time the Revolution hired a head coach, Diego Fagundez had yet to celebrate his 17th birthday and Andrew Farrell still played for the Louisville Cardinals. Fast forward six years, and the Revs have a coaching vacancy once more.

Immediately after reports surfaced that New England had parted ways with Jay Heaps, speculation began about who would fill the void.

Nelson Valdez ensured himself a proper place in Sounders lore

The forward deserves to be remembered as more than a DP flop.

To say the Seattle Sounders have a somewhat spotty record when it comes to Designated Player signings is probably fair. For every Obafemi Martins, there's been a Christian Tiffert. For every Fredy Montero, a Shalrie Joseph.

By any reasonable metric, Nelson Valdez probably belongs in the "flop" bin.
