Sweeney: Montreal’s physicality made Revs ‘unrecognizable’

It's a question on the lips of every Revolution fan right now: "Just who were those 11 guys wearing our colors Saturday afternoon?"

(There are a few others, like "Why didn't they move Lee Nguyen earlier so they could bolster the back line?" or "Why don't we have back-up forwards who can actually score goals?" but for the purposes of this breakdown, those questions might have to wait.)

The names on the jerseys Saturday were indeed the same ones as those who have played each of the last four matches without change in Brad Friedel's starting XI, but suffice it to say, they did not play in roughly the same manner as they have lately.

No, the Montreal Impact treated the Revs like a U-12 squad for a good portion of the hosts' 4-2 win at Stade Saputo.
