There are two major aspects of the game that the New England Revolution need to figure out if they're going to have success in 2013: physicality and set pieces.

That Shalrie Joseph will soon by joining the Seattle Sounders comes as a bit of a shock to the system. The soon-to-be-35-year-old's best years are clearly behind him, but he's still going to be paid as if he's in his prime. There are definitely reasons to look at this move and wonder why the Sounders would be willing to use one of their three Designated Player spots on him, even if Chivas USA were willing to essentially pay to get rid of him.
