Over the last week, the New England Revolution were kept busy with matches, injuries, and news involving certain members of the squad.

Last Saturday, the Revs were in Vancouver to take on the Whitecaps. What many felt like should of been a win for the Revs, considering they were up 2-0 before Vancouver tied, then up again 3-2 before Vancouver once again equalized.

After that, the Revs came home and hosted the best team in MLS, Atlanta. Boasting an impressive road record, Atlanta were not going to be any pushover.

For most of the match, Atlanta were not impressive, at least for the first hour. However they did put the Revs under pressure, and if not for the heroics of rookie goalie Matt Turner, this match could of, and probably should of ended in a 3-1 loss. This match ended in a second straight tie for New England, 1-1 with Teal converting a late penalty shot, his seventh of the season.


The Revolution did have bad news. During the match versus Atlanta, Chris Tierney was forced to leave after a non contact injury. It was confirmed later that Chris will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL.


These last two ties for the Revs has allowed their rivals behind them in the standings to catch up. A win is now a must in their next match against NY Redbulls if they want to maintain a playoff spot and stay ahead.


On to some positive bit news. Brad Friedel has been elected to the National Soccer Hall of Fame. A long career in the English Premier league, mostly with Blackburn Rovers, Aston Villa, Tottenham, Liverpool, Columbus in MLS before going to England, and a season in Turkey with Galatasaray. He also earned 82 caps with the national team, led the national team to the quarter-finals of the 2002 world cup, and owns the Premier League record of 310 consecutive appearances, a record that still stands today.


Last bit of Revs related news. Despite only playing a few minutes through out his career, Zack Herivaux did get called up for the Haitian national team, and started against Argentina.
