This weekend, the Revolution have an opportunity to show the rest of American soccer that they belong in the conversation when they head to Seattle to take on the Sounders Saturday afternoon.
Last weekend, New England suffered its first league defeat in nearly three months — before last Saturday, Thursday marked the three-month point — against LAFC, a team that is the odds-on favorite to win not only the Supporter’s Shield, but MLS Cup, too. But now The Boys In Blue are playing a Seattle team that is, by all accounts, depleted.
Chad Marshall? He retired back in May.
Román Torres? Suspended for 10 games due to a positive PED test.
Raúl Riudiaz? Has missed the last couple of games with a concussion, and isn’t a guarantee to play this weekend.
And not only that, this is a Sounders team that has lost six out of their last 10.
