Revolution Notes: Attacking players need to play more together, another injury update and more

One of the big problems with the Revolution — and seriously, where do we start with all of that? — has to do with the lack of scoring punch, at least so far, up top in this young 2019 season. As yours truly mentioned on Six States One Podcast on Monday night (and if you missed it, I went on a nifty rant at 20:30, and another at 30:14), New England’s strikers have combined for a total of zero shots on frame in the first 540 minutes of the new campaign.

And if one wishes to be technical, Revs’ strikers haven’t found the back of the net since Juan Agudelo’s second-half stoppage time goal against Atlanta United on Oct. 6 last year. That’s 810 minutes ago, folks.

(And yes, Cristian Penilla and Kelyn Rowe and Diego Fagundez were responsible for The Boys In Blue’s goals to close out ’18; they are all midfielders.)

In a phrase, it’s not good for a mainly veteran attacking unit.
