Patrick Mullins has a hell of a lot of potential. Deadly scoring ability, great soccer brain, great first touch, and strong on the ball. He may not be a speedster, but he knows how to play the lone striker position.

I won't be surprised if he gets a January Camp call-up.

Good to see Zach Pfeffer finally getting minutes. Kid has a lot of talent.

Oh and New Englanders/Bostonians for the love of God start supporting your MLS team. They are very exciting to watch.
JK said that the january camps from now on will be for young players. I think Mullins fits the bill.

As a Bostonian I love the revs. They have done things the right way. See you expensive over rated veterans like Joseph and bengsten(still on the team but a big player). Hello Rowe, Mullins, Diego. Also Farrell is looking like a potential CB possibility. Oneil, brooks, packwood, Farrell. It's good to finally have some cbs that look like they are actually international quality (like demeritt pre-injuries/age and boca) not capable fillers but not really international caliber guys (besler, Goodson, Omar)

As a Bostonian I think our success across all sports recently has made us spoiled about our sports teams. When we lose games, we lose interest and attendance numbers drop. Ever since heaps has turned the team around the attendance numbers have risen.

Great win today. I think kobayashi was a great pick up especially on a free but I still think once Rowe is completely healthy again he should be inserted back into the starting lineup. He's a fantastic attacking player who like Nguyen isn't afraid to get down and dirty on the defensive side of the ball.

I always get annoyed when we start Alston at left back ahead of Chris Tierney because I think Tierneys got to be one of the most underrated players in the league. He's one of the best crossers in the league, one of the best set piece takers in the league and a solid defender. People always talk about Brad Davis having the best left foot in MLS but Tierney has to be up there with him. Watch goals of past years as well and Tierneys service is and always has been fantastic.

Tough to see Boniek Garcia go down in his final game before joining Honduras. Hopefully, it's nothing serious.

Really entertaining day of MLS. I feel sorry for the soccer fans who refuse to watch MLS.

Its their loss. People refuse for two reasons and that because its not EPL quality and because its American. Yea MLS might not be EPL quality but the entertainment is there and frankly thats what matters at the end of the day. The snobs that hate MLS remind me of the example of a rich man only eating expensive things just because they are expensive and not necessarily good or just better cheaper things. rant mode over. good MLS week.

I have never or ever refused to watch mls for the record. I have turned down bigger events to watch certain mls games. I feel the wc will bring higher attendance to mls games since they will start after wc matches. I still can't believe the WC is less than a month away, kinda feels akward.

Honestly I don't know why people hate on MLS. To be fair, the first league I watched was MLS ( started watching soccer after the 2010 World Cup). However, it is more fun watching something grow before your eyes and help it improve like MLS instead of the EPL which has great teams but which has little parity and a small team cannot reach the top

Not MLS news, but Tommy Redding ( a more than likely 2015 U-20 CB) is pushing himself to start for Orlando City. He could very well be starting for Orlando in MLS when they come into the league next season. Should be a very good battle at CB for the U-20's with Miazga, EPB, Redding, and Haberkorn.


Redding went 90 in the victory over Arizona United SC. The MLS USL agreement was major in this major match as 6 players with HGs and another 6 minimum were drafted by MLS teams

It was fun to see who would step up to the plate. I also spent more time focused on players I don't pay as much attention to when the US internationals are around. There really is a lot of young talent in MLS right now.

Yes, EPB starting. Watch this game if you can. You will be watching the future of the USMNT CB corps.
