Revolution Struggling To Get Out Of The Middle Of The Pack In MLS Standings

 So far this season the Revolution are struggling to get out of the middle of the pack in the 2017 soccer season. The 6=9 Revolution have found themselves pretty well locked in to tenth place in the MLS Eastern Conference.                                                                                                                                                                                 Certainly it isin’t due to lack of effort the Revolution just can’t seem to gain any ground. This past Saturday for example the Revolution had one of their most exciting wins of the season . The Revolution defeated the LA Galaxy 4-3.                                                                                                                                                                               The Revolution got great performances from reserve forward TealBunbury 2 goals. Also contributing to the mix were forward Kei Kamara 1 goal and forward Diego Fagundez 3 assists. For Bunbury it was his best game in the past twenty games in which he hasn’t scored a point.                                                                                                                                                                                                            The Revolution head to Philadelphia this weekend for a match with the ninth place Union. Hopefully this past weekends win will be a springboard for more wins to come. The Revolution find themselves tied with the Union with 20  points and   in front of DC United with 18 points.                                                                                                                                                                                                        The   Head coach Jay Heaps has been working short handed for some time but got a hige lift from Bunbury off the bench. The Revolution have fourteen games left and if they want to make any kind of move now is the right time.                                                                                                                                                                                From now until the rest of the season the Revolution need every point they can get. After Philadelphia this weekend the Revolution have games against Chicago and Vancouver. In order for the Revolution to make any advancement they have to play ninety minutes of soccer every game.                                                                                                                                                                              So far this season the Revolution have gotten consistent performances from Lee Nguyen, Juan Agudelo and forward Kei Kamara. Ngyuen continues to be one of the best players in the league with 8 goals and 7 assists in 20 games. Goal keeper Cody Cropper continues solid in goal game after game.                                                                                                                                                       Soccer like any other sport has it’s share of injuries. If the short handed Revolution want to make any significant gain then th ey need to dig down deep and find ways to win.
