What next for Nicol, Revs?

Posted by Mike Marshall on November 10, 2009

Another season, another unsatisfactory conclusion.

A few days removed from what was an exceptionally painful ending (Jesus, anyone but him…) many Revolution fans are taking time to step back and look at the bigger picture.  And I’d have to think that most don’t really like what they’re looking at.

2009 was the 3rd consecutive year in which the club earned fewer points and had a worse goal differential than the previous season.  It’s difficult to draw any other conclusion then the organization is moving in the wrong direction.  And it’s time for that to stop before the situation gets any worse.

It’s beyond time for the Revolution to make sweeping changes to their organization, both on and off the field.  Players, trainers, coaches, executives, peanut vendors – they should all be evaluated, and none of them should be assured of returning in 2010.  Because as a Revolution fan from Day One, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to get excited about a club that seems to be stagnating on the playing field and at the gate.

Foi sofrida mas justa esta vitória do Revolution, frente a uma equipa que o Revolution já não vençia á sete jogos, mas só depois de sofrer o golo é que a equipa de Foxboro acordou.

Começou melhor a equipa do Chicago Fire que logo nos primeiros minutos criou várias oportunidades de golo, aos 5 minutos a cruzamento de Pappa, McBride de cabeça rematou ao lado da baliza.
