Revs fall to San Jose

The Revolution lost on the road to San Jose on Saturday night 2-0. One bright spot from the game was the play of Marko Perovic. His vision was very good. He looks like the player the Revolution have been missing these past couple of years. An attacking midfielder who can distribute the ball effectively to the forwards and wings. I know it was only one game, but you can tell from watching him that he knows how to play the game. I can't wait to see him play in the midfield along with Joseph especially once Twellman comes back.

Osei was a late scratch from the line up. His replacement was Darius Barnes who looked very shaky out there. He didn't look comfortable at all. Perhaps it was because it was his first game of the year. He didn't look like the Darius Barnes that we knew last year. Hopefully he can come back strong and prove that he just needed to shake off some rust.

At times the Revs were able to put some passes together and attack but for the most part they just looked flat. Once they got to the final third they had trouble creating anything. People say the Revs that showed up on Satyurday weren't the same team that showed up against DC and Tornonto. I disagree, I saw the same team. The difference was that against DC the Revs were able to score a goal off of one their very few chances and then Mansally scored a nice goal out of nowhere. Against Toronto they faced an opponed who just sucked. There's really no other word for it, Toronto sucked. They showed up in San Jose and played pretty much the same way they have all season and lost. It's been the same team all along. I'm still waiting to see the Revolution play well for an entire game this year.
