With only ten games remaining in the season before the weekend began, the New England Revolution wanted to take all three points against the Philadelphia Union to keep their playoff hopes intact.

Stepping up to the challenge, the Revolution used four second-half goals to rout the Union, 5-1, at Gillette Stadium. Kelyn Rowe and Juan Agudelo each scored twice, while Diego Fagundez scored one and added an assist in the big win. The Revolution’s performance on Saturday earned them SBI MLS Team of the Week honors.

The Revolution beat out the Montreal Impact, Real Salt Lake, and Chivas USA for this week’s honors.

    Montreal did put 5 past Philly too, now let’s see the Revs put 5 past Houston :)

    crickets – but honestly –

    In Fagundez/Rowe, the Revs have two very skilled attacking players to build around, along with Caldwell at holding mid who is quietly logging minutes and maturing this year.

    sad part is, they wont spend any money and no one wants to play in a 70k stadium with 5k people on hand.

      Unfortunately, I have to agree with you. Robert Kraft is a very shrewd businessman, and has built up his Patriots and Foxboro properties into very profitable ventures. He was an original MLS owner in 1996, and his stadium has hosted many memorable international and WCQ games over the years – to very large crowds.

      But it is painfully obvious the Krafts are sticking to the original business plan of scouring the globe for low-cost, undervalued players, trying to build a fan base around a competitive team, and rebuilding continuously (Agudelo for Davies) to keep operating costs low. In a knowledgable sports town like Boston, fans set high expectations. Unfortunely, I think the Revs fan interest is flat-lining.

    Would have been interesting to see how that game might have turned out if the ref hadn’t blown the call that would have made it 2-1 Union around the 60th minute. However, with the formation change and substitution of Lahoud into the game in the first half, Coach Hackworth played to lose, and did so in some style.

    Wow what a travisty! This is such an outrage what happened to Chivas? I can’t believe it.
