    The Revolution head into this game in an three way tie with Chicago and Columbus for control of the Eastern Division. Its unknown if Taylor Twellman will be back for this game or not. However coming off that amazing last minute win over Columbus this last Saturday the Revolution are heading into this game with a lot of confidence of taking first place.

    Game starts at 7:30 PM EST on at Gillette Stadium. It will be on TV via ESPN2, ESPN2 HD, and ESPN Deportes.

    For anyone wanting to get tickets to attend this game the Revs are offering $2 off the gate price per two tickets purchased plus two free Revolution/ESPN2 shirts as well.

    Twellman is being reported to be out 3-6 weeks, Mansally is away on NT duty so our forward line will be down to Dube, Cristman and Fernandez. I hope we don't see a 3-6-1, but its definitely possible.

    Got down early 1-0 off of a nice lunging header by Luciano Emilio after Reis made a nice save on a jumping shot by Clyde Simms. Fred made it 2-0 for DC after pretending to be injured (the Revs were very not happy with that goal). Then they crawled back to earn a draw through Cristman and Dube getting the GTG. This was Dube's 3rd goal with the other 2 being GWG pretty clutch. The Revs could have given up 4 or 5 goals but Reis made some huge saves.

    He's a great manager, super knowledgable and is always adapting. For a while we were a power passing team, now he's making a more youthful speed team. I don't think you can complain at all about how he's remaking the team on the fly considering we just changed playing surfaces and needed to go to a more speed oriented lineup.

    Ahh pass and move, the Liverpool way :) I had a feeling he would try to encourage that after having it drilled into him when he was here. Have the revs had any luck getting a location for a soccer specific stadium? It must be a nightmare for the players with so many lines :D
