Bonus Episode: Relieved of Duty

7_23_18 Show.png

After 18 tumultuous and often frustrating months, the Brad Friedel era has officially come to an end in Foxborough. What’s next?

The Revs were again blown out on the road Wednesday, dropping a 5-0 decision to the Chicago Fire, which paved the road for Friedel’s Thursday dismissal. Current New England assistant Mike Lapper now takes the helm as interim head coach as the Revs prepare to host the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday. We preview that match with Steve Uhalde, of the ‘74 til Infinity podcast.

Then Ray and Jon welcome back Julian Cardillo, of ProSoccerUSA, and Sean Sweeney, or the Boston Sports Journal, to discuss how Brad Friedel lost his way and where the Revs go from here.

Episode 69: Philadelphia Surrender

After a promising first half at Philadelphia, things fell apart hard and fast for New England in the final 45 as the Revs surrendered five goals on their way to an embarrassing 6-1 loss to their Eastern Conference rivals.

The Boys in Blue are now 2-2-7, firmly in last place, and have given up 13 goals in their last three games. This week, we bring back Sean Sweeney, of the Boston Sports Journal, and Dan Shulman, of the Boston Globe, to share the suffering. Then Guillermo Rivera, with the Athletic and the Fire Confidential blog stops by to preview Wednesday’s match near the Windy City.

Episode 68: Blue Hell Meltdown

The Revs squandered two goal leads — twice — on the road at Kansas City Saturday and managed a draw in a game in which they finished with only nine players.

Juan Fernando Caicedo earned a brace with two first half goals — his first in MLS — and Juan Agudelo found the back of the net for the first time since last August in the 42’. Rookie DeJuan Jones opened his professional account in the 69th minute, but the Revs still surrounded four goals of their own, two of which came off former New England attacker Krisztián Németh.

With Alex Almeida away on assignment, Eric Spence joins Ray and Jon this week, along with Jonathan Sigal, from MLSsoccer.com and the New England Soccer Journal. Then Mike Servidio, Co-Host of the KYW Radio’s Philly Soccer Show, is here to preview the Revs’ visit to the land of Chester.

BONUS POD: Montreal Rant and SKC Preview

The boys unload some Montreal misery after the Revs 3-0 loss to the Impact in Foxborough. That’s New England’s fourth time getting shut out at home in 2019. Brad Friedel accepted the mantle of responsibility for not being able to motivate the team. Nice sentiment, but is it really on Friedel to ensure the players are appropriately fired up for every match?

New England now hits the road for a three-game away trip. We preview the first of those matches with Andy Edwards, host of the Talking Touches Podcast, as the Revs prepare to face some familiar faces in Kansas City on Saturday.

Episode 67: It has happened before

Head coach Brad Friedel said the Revs’ main priority against Red Bull this week was to walk away with a clean sheet. Mission accomplished, but we’ll take the needed three points, too.

New England picked up its’ second win of the 2019 campaign with a 1-0 victory over its’ I-95 rival as Cristian Penilla notched the game's lone goal in the 73rd minute, besting Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles with a dribbler on the near post. We bring back Sean Sweeney, from the Boston Sports Journal, and Dan Shulman of the Boston Globe to break it all down.

Then, we look ahead to Montreal to see if the Revs can pick up a win streak with a mid-week tilt against the Impact. Paul Vance, managing editor of Mount Royal Soccer, joins us for the preview.
