MLS LogoCharlie Davies scored his second goal in as many games as the New England Revolution were held at home by the Portand Timbers while elsewhere in MLS, Sporting Kansas City opened up a five-point lead at the top of the Eastern Conference as they cruised to a 4-1 win over Toronto FC.

Both teams came into the match at Gillette on the wrong side of the playoff standings, and it looked like it was going to be the Revolutions’s night when in the 27th minute Davies ran onto a Diego Fagundez through ball to make it 1-0.

The_FortThe New England Revolutions losing streak is up to eight games after Saturday nights 2-1 home defeat to the struggling Columbus Crew.

A.J. Soares’ 50th-minute goal brought the Revs’ level after Columbus scored the first goal just before halftime, but Ethan Finley’s game-winning goal in the 84th-minute sealed the win for the visiting Crew.

This was a game that was there to be won by New England, but eventually the braver moves by Crew head coach Gregg Berhalter were the difference in the game.

MLS LogoRemember all that gloating we had last month at the World Cup when the USA advanced out of the Group of Death while England was sent home early? How the progress of the national team was a sign of his far Major League Soccer has come? Well last night was reality check for the league as MLS sides went head to head with five Premier League sides and the results were not pretty.

In the five games, MLS managed one draw, scoring five goals and conceding 18! If you add in Seattle‘s 3-3 draw with Spurs last week, MLS is 0-5-1 in the six game tournament so far.

SKC-MLS-CupThe new MLS Power Rankings are out and the Seattle Sounders stay in the number one position. What amazes me is that after losing seven games in a row, that the New England Revolution are viewed as only the third worst side in MLS. How bad are Houston and Montreal?

1: FC Dallas
Xander Bailey. Enough said.

Last Week: Bye
Last Five: W-W-W-L-W
Next MLS Game: July 28 vs. LA

2: Sporting Kansas City
Don’t usually get wound up about All-Star snubs, but to say Benny Feilhaber wouldn’t help vs. Bayern is bonkers.

seattle-sounders-fansMajor League Soccer has announced its complete 2014 regular season schedule, and just as it did during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, MLS will take a two-week break between June 12-24, when the 2014 World Cup is taking place in Brazil.

The regular season will end on Oct. 26 before the MLS Cup playoffs begin the following week.

Revs Coach Jay HeapThe New England Revolution is returning to the MLS Cup Playoffs for the first time in four seasons after a nail biting 1-0 win against the Columbus Crew at Crew Stadium. The win, combined with other results around the league, meant the Revs ended the season in third place on the Eastern.

New England finished the season by going 4-0-2 in its last six games, including a 2-0-1 mark on the road in that stretch.

The beginning of the 2012 Major League Soccer season is right around the corner and the folks over at MLS Soccer have released their first preseason power rankings. As expected the LA Galaxy are on top, while the New England Revolution get no love, as MLS Soccer ranks them below the expansion side Montreal Impact.

What do you think of the rankings?

1: LA Galaxy
Robbie Keane, Landon Donovan, Edson Buddle, Mike Magee, David Beckham … holy crap this team is going to score a lot of goals. Chances are, though, that they’ll concede a few more than in recent years thanks to the departure of Juninho and the injury to Omar Gonzalez. Still, Bruce Arena has to be salivating over the talent at his disposal this season.
