SATIRE by Tony Biscaia

USA midfielder Clint Demspey has been fined $2 and suspended for 20 minutes by the USSF for Texting While Scoring, following allegations that he texted from the field both before and after scoring a penalty kick goal in an international friendly against Antiqua, an old but insignificant foe for the US.

According the sources that requested anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the subject matter, Fullham’s Dempsey allegedly texted “I’m going low left” before the kick, and “see? toldya” immediately after tucking the shot past the antique, 49 year old former Oldham keeper.

Jogo Morno, Em Noite Fria

Posted by tonybiscaia on June 17, 2012

By Walter Silva

Numa noite fria o futebol esteve arredado do estádio Gillette, uma semana de descanso não fez nada bam aos comandados de Jay Heaps. E até o começo do jogo dei para perçeber que podia ser um bom jogo de futebol, engano nosso foi um jogo todo ele muito tático, com o meio campo muito povoado, não havendo muito espaço para se jogar.

Will The Resurgent Revs Gain Respect and Relevance? Plus an Interview with David Vaudreuil

A VIEW FROM THE FORT By Jim Dow

Although the “official” attendance read well in excess of 12,000 it is hard to believe there were half that many hardy folks sitting and standing in last Saturday’s sodden conditions when the Revolution and the goal posts held the Fire’s feet to the fire for a deserved 2-0 victory. And while this display may have helped to some degree to erase the ignominy of giving up three goals in twelve minutes to a third division side at mid-week one has to wonder if both the positive or negative exploits of New England’s soccer team are like a solitary tree falling in the forest or one hand clapping? Besides the devoted and quite marvelous few that show up rain or shine, win, lose or draw to Gillette Stadium, the Banshee Pub and post on Big Soccer, does anyone in metro Boston and beyond really care about this club?

Visitantes Mereçiam Um Ponto

Posted by tonybiscaia on May 30, 2012

By Walter Silva

Por tudo o que se passou durante os 96 minutos que se jogou no estádio JFK, o Revolution mereçia pelo menos um ponto neste jogo. Não porque o Revolution tivesse sido melhor do que os donos da casa, mas pelo que lutaram, pelo empenho que tiveram no jogo, pela vontade de não sairam deste jogo sem qualquer ponto, por tudo isso mereçiam um ponto.

A View From The Fort By Jim Dow

Eleven matches into the Jay Heaps era and the New England Revolution lie fifth out of ten in the Eastern Conference of MLS and overall are tenth out of nineteen teams with a record of four wins and six losses and a draw for 13 points.

Visitantes Mereciam Outro Resultado

Posted by tonybiscaia on May 7, 2012

By Walter Silva

Não foi uma grande partida de futebol, foi sim um jogo mais de luta pelos três pontos em disputa, venceu a equipa mais adulta, a equipa que tem mais tempo de trabalho, que tem um treinador que já está ao service do Real Salt Lake á quatro temporadas.

Mas tambem tiveram no árbitro da partida um bom aliado, cometeu vários erros e todos a favoreceram a equipa da casa, o árbitro David Gantar esteve mesmo mal, principalmento nos minutos finais do encontro.

Jogar Só 30 Minutos Não Dá

Posted by tonybiscaia on May 1, 2012

By Walter Silva

Foi o que oconteçeu neste jogo, o Revolution só consegui jogar a ultima meia hora, muito pouco para uma equipa chegar á vitória.

Começou melhor a equipa da casa, que chegou ao golo eram decorridos apenas 7 minutos de jogo, Connor Lade meteu a bola para a area do Revolution, com o veterano frances Tierry Henry a rematar a contar.

Boa exibição dos visitantes

Posted by tonybiscaia on April 3, 2012

By Walter Silva

Foi sem dúvida uma agradavél supresa esta exibição do NE Revolution, frente a uma equipa recheada de grandes nomes, como David Beckman, Robbie Keane e companhia, era de esperar mais da equipa que ostenta o titulo da epoca anterior.

Na equipa do Revolution houve apenas uma alteração no onze que defrontou o Portland, foi a saida de Balke Brettschneider e a entrada de Stephen McCarthy para çentro da defesa , e com Shalrie Joseph a subir para o meio campo, e com a equipa a jogar num classico 4x4x2, com Ryan Guy a ser o segundo ponta de lança.

Mas o segredo da boa exibição voltou a ser, quanto a nós, foi ter marcado çedo, tal como aconteçeu no passado fim de semana frente ao Portlant Timbers.

Marcar Cedo Foi o Segredo

Posted by tonybiscaia on March 27, 2012

By Walter Silva
Na estreia em casa frente aos seus adeptos, o Revolution rubricou uma boa exibição, e o segredo foi marcar muito çedo. E foi logo no primeiro minuto de jogo que a equipa da casa chegou ao golo, boa jogada pelo lada esquerdo como atacava o Revolution, com Lee Nguyen a meter em Chris Tierny, com este a cruzar con conta peso e medida e o ponta de lança Saer Sene a saltar mais alto do que toda a defensiva contrária para cabeçear para o fundo da baliza á guarda de Troy Perkins.

We May Have Gotten What We Paid For, Or Did We? Plus an Interview with Fernando Cardenas

Posted by tonybiscaia on March 19, 2012

A VIEW FROM THE FORT by Jim Dow

Back in the day, when there were only six teams in the National Hockey League and the Boston Bruins were run by an amiable but ineffectual bunch every new season of despair brought forth some fresh, cut-rate prospects who had toiled in obscurity for clubs like Kamloops, Flin Flon and Marquette in the far reaches of the International or Western Hockey Leagues.

While the regulars in those days were hardly topnotch, the B’s were locked in an apparent perpetual embrace of sub-mediocrity with the New York Rangers, by early season most of the new hopers were either benched, cut loose or back in the minors, never to return.
