CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION VS. JOE PUBLIC FC 


MISCELLANEOUS TEAM NOTES 


REVS HOST JOE PUBLIC IN SECOND LEG OF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE SERIES ... 

The Revolution will host Trinidad's Joe Public FC at Gillette Stadium on Tuesday night in the 
second and deciding leg of their CONCACAF Champions League preliminary-round series 
... New England trails on aggregate, 2-1, entering the second leg after falling by that score 
line last Tuesday night (Aug. 26) at Marvin Lee Stadium in Trinidad ... Joe Public FC currently 
plays in the Trinidad & Tobago Professional Football League and finished as the league’s 
runner-up in 2007 ... the club, which is one of three Caribbean qualifiers, earned its spot 
in the tournament by finishing as the runner-up in the 2007 Caribbean Football Union Club 
Championship. 

... AFTER DROPPING FIRST LEG IN TRINIDAD LAST WEEK 

A determined Joe Public FC defended its home field and defeated the Revolution, 2-1, in the 
first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League preliminary-round series last Tuesday night 
(Aug. 26) at Marvin Lee Stadium ... Gregory Richardson (51') and Jamal Gay (70’) each fin¬ 
ished crosses from Kerry Baptiste to give the Eastern Lions a 2-0 lead, but Mauricio Castro 
cut the deficit in half when he converted a 76th-minute penalty kick after Shalrie Joseph was 
tripped in the box. 

CASTRO’S LATE STRIKE IN FIRST LEG COULD PROVE CRUCIAL 
Mauricio Castro's important late penalty kick in the loss to Joe Public FC last Tuesday night 
(Aug. 26) gave the Revolution a crucial goal in the two-game series that will be decided on 
aggregate score ... though the Revs trail, 2-1, heading into the second leg on Tuesday night at 
Gillette Stadium, they could hold an advantage in the first tiebreaker should the teams finish 
even on aggregate, because Castro's goal was scored away from home ... if the two teams 
are tied on aggregate goals after the second match, the first tiebreaker is away goals. 

POSSIBILITIES ABOUND IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE PRELIM SERIES 

Depending on particular score-lines in Tuesday night's CONCACAF Champions League 
match, there are a number of possible scenarios, including the possibility of the match going to 
extra time and penalty kicks ... if the Revs win, 1-0, then they will win the series and advance 
to the tournament’s group stage (the series would finish 2-2 on aggregate, and New England 
would win on away goals)... if the Revs win, 2-1, the series would finish 2-2 on aggregate, 
with the teams tied on away goals and the match will go to extra time - and possibly penalty 
kicks - to decide a winner... if the Revs win by a single goal by any other score-line (3-2, 4-3, 
5-4, etc.), then Joe Public wins the series and advances to the tournament's group stage (the 
series would finish tied on aggregate, but Joe Public would win on away goals)... if the Revs 
win by more than one goal, they win the series on aggregate ... if the teams draw or the Revs 
lose by any score, Joe Public wins the series on aggregate and advances, 

WINNER OF PLAY-IN SERIES WILL JOIN GROUP C 

The winner of the Revolution-Joe Public FC series in the 2008-09 CONCACAF Champions 
League will join Group C in the next stage of the competition ... the group also includes 
Mexico's Atlante, Honduran side Olimpia and the winner of the qualifying series between 
Montreal Impact (Canada) and Real Esteli (Nicaragua), which Montreal leads on aggregate, 
1-0, after the first leg ... the 16 teams that reach the group stage will vie for the title of best 
club in CONCACAF and a spot in the 2009 FIFA Club World Cup. 

BEST IN MLS TO BATTLE ON SATURDAY NIGHT AT CREW STADIUM 

The Revs (11-6-5, 38 pts.) will visit the Columbus Crew (12-6-4, 40 pts.) on Saturday night 
at Crew Stadium in a match that brings together the top two teams in the MLS standings ... 
with just eight games remaining in the regular season, the match has huge playoff implica¬ 
tions, as both clubs continue to fight for optimal position in the Eastern Conference and the 
coveted Supporter's Shield as overall MLS leaders ... the Revs had occupied at least a share 
of the top spot in the league for 13 of the last 14 weeks after jumping into first place on May 
24 - coincidentally with a 1-0 win over Columbus at Crew Stadium - but were leapfrogged by 
the Crew this past weekend, as New England drew, 2-2, with the LA Galaxy, and Columbus 
defeated FC Dallas, 2-1, at Pizza Hut Park. 

TIGHT AT THE TOP 

While New England (11-6-5, 38 pts.) and Columbus (12-6-4, 40 pts.) are the top two teams in 
Major League Soccer after Saturday night's MLS action, there are a number of teams in the 
Eastern Conference that are within striking distance of first place ... Chicago (10-6-5, 35 pts.) 
is just three points behind the Revolution heading into the club’s Sunday might match against 
Houston, while D.C. (10-10-2, 32 pts.) and New York (8-6-8, 32 pts.) are also looking to make 
a move towards the top of the table. 

TWELLMAN JUST KEEPS SCORING ... 

Taylor Twellman notched his fifth goal of the season in Saturday night's 2-2 draw with Los 
Angeles to continue his torrid scoring pace ... Twellman, who has been limited to just eight 
regular-season appearances (four starts) this season because of various injuries (knee, ankle, 
hip), paid the price for his goal, reaching Khano Smith's cross before Galaxy goalkeeper 
Steve Cronin, but taking a knock to the face in the process ... the U.S. National Team member 


celebrated his goal before leaving the field for several minutes to receive treatment... follow¬ 
ing the match, Twellman received five stitches and had a significant welt on his right cheek ... 
Twellman has now scored in three straight MLS matches and four of the last five, while he’s 
just one goal shy of the team lead despite appearing in just more than one-third of the Revs’ 
matches. 

... AND IS RAPIDLY APPROACHING THE CENTURY MARK 

After scoring his 96th career goal on Saturday night against Los Angeles, Taylor Twellman 
is now just four goals shy of the 100-goal mark in MLS regular-season action ... Twellman is 
currently ranked fifth in MLS career goals, five behind fourth-place Jeff Cunningham (101), 
currently of FC Dallas, and 25 shy of D.C.’s Jaime Moreno (121), the league’s all-time leading 
goal scorer... the U.S. National Team member has scored his 96 goals in just 164 games, 
while all four players ahead of him on the charts have made at least 250 career appearances 
... Twellman is on pace to become the league’s youngest 100-goal scorer. 

TWELLMAN CLIMBING THE REVS’ ALL-TIME CHARTS 

In addition to climbing up the MLS goal-scoring charts with his recent run of form, Taylor 
Twellman has also been inching his way up the Revolution’s all-time games-played and 
games-started lists ... Twellman recently moved into third place in appearances (164) by pass¬ 
ing former Rev Joe Franchino (162), while he’s also now tied with Franchino for third place in 
games started (155)... the U.S. National Team forward is also third all-time in minutes played 
(14,217) for the Revs. 

TWELLMAN SCORING AT A RAPID PACE 

With five goals in just 491 minutes of regular-season action in 2008, Taylor Twellman is tied 
for first in the league in goals per 90 minutes (0.92)... Twellman, who has averaged one goal 
just about every 98 minutes that he's been on the field, is tied with LA's Landon Donovan, who 
leads the league with 16 goals ... additionally, despite four of his eight appearances coming 
as a substitute, Twellman is tied for second in the league in goals per game (0.63)... for his 
career, Twellman is tied for sixth all-time in goals per 90 minutes (0.61) and is fifth in goals per 
game (0.59). 

BADILLA DEBUTS 

Just two days after arriving in the United States, Costa Rican defender Gabriel Badilla made 
his MLS and Revolution debut on Saturday night against the Los Angeles Galaxy, starting 
alongside Michael Parkhurst in the center of a four-man backline ... Badilla, 24, flew into 
Boston late Thursday evening, trained with the Revolution for the first time in a light session on 
Friday, then played the full 90 minutes on Saturday ... the defender signed with the Revolution 
on Aug. 18 from Saprissa of Costa Rica’s Primera Division, where he had spent his entire 
professional career. 

REIS RETURNS 

Goalkeeper Matt Reis returned to the Revolution's starting lineup for Saturday night's 2-2 
draw with the Los Angeles Galaxy after missing three matches (two MLS, one CONCACAF 
Champions League) with a right adductor strain ... prior to sustaining the injury on Aug. 16 at 
San Jose, Reis had started 89 straight regular-season matches (101 including postseason 
contests) dating back to Sept. 3, 2005, and had played a league-record 7,975 consecutive 
minutes for New England ... Doug Warren took over between the pipes in Reis’ absence, 
going 1-1-1 with a 1.33 goals against average in MLS games. 

PARKHURST EARNS FIRST CAREER ASSIST ... 

Defender Michael Parkhurst - who has been jokingly rumored to have a GPS alarm that 
goes off when he crosses midfield to alert him that he’s too far forward - earned his first career 
assist in his 107th appearance on Saturday night against LA... Parkhurst provided the cutting 
pass which set up Shalrie Joseph’s game-tying goal in the 71st minute, as the clubs drew, 

2-2 ... the 2007 MLS Defender of the Year also has one career goal, which he scored in his 
87th career appearance last year at Toronto. 

... ON JOSEPH’S FIRST GOAL OF THE SEASON 

Although Shalrie Joseph was the leading goal-scorer in SuperLiga 2008 with three goals, 
the defensive midfielder had yet to score his first goal of the 2008 MLS regular season until 
the 71st minute of Saturday night’s 2-2 draw with LA... Joseph received a pass from Michael 
Parkhurst near the top of the box, turned towards goal, and burst into the area before firing 
a low shot inside the near post for the game-tying goal... it was Joseph's first regular-season 
goal since July 22, 2007, when he converted a penalty kick in a 3-3 draw with Houston. 

HEAPS LEAPS TO SIXTH ALL-TIME IN MINUTES PLAYED 
Jay Heaps moved into sixth place on MLS’ all-time minutes-played list on Saturday night 
against LA, as the veteran defender has now played 24,473 minutes in his 10-year career... 
Heaps overtook the retired Mark Chung (24,470) on the list and is now less than 700 minutes 
away from catching the retired Cobi Jones (25,157) for fifth place ... Heaps is the only Revs 
player to play every minute of all 22 MLS games this season. 




CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION VS. JOE PUBLIC FC 


A RARE OCCURENCE FOR RALSTON 

MLS’ “Ironman,” Steve Ralston, missed Saturday night's match against LA with back spasms, 
which he originally suffered in last Tuesday's CONCACAF Champions League preliminary- 
round match against Joe Public FC ... it was the first MLS match which Ralston didn’t start 
since May 3 at Chicago, and the first game in which he didn’t appear since April 24 at FC 
Dallas ... Ralston missed five matches early this season with a dislocated left shoulder, which 
he suffered in the season opener against Houston (March 29). 

SMITH RETURNS FROM BERMUDA NATIONAL TEAM DUTY 

After missing the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League preliminary-round series at 
Joe Public FC last Tuesday night (Aug. 26) while with the Bermuda National Team, Khano 
Smith returned to the Revs lineup on Saturday (Aug. 30) against LA... Smith started on the 
left side of midfield against the Galaxy and earned his third assist of the season on Taylor 
Twellman's 22nd-mintue goal... while with the Bermuda National Team in the Cayman 
Islands, Smith started one match of the 2009 Digicel Caribbean Cup - a 4-0 loss to Antigua 
and Barbuda on Aug. 27 - before returning to the Revs. 

THREE'S COMPANY 

New England began play in the CONCACAF Champions League with a 2-1 loss to Trinidad’s 
Joe Public FC last Tuesday night at Marvin Lee Stadium, marking the club’s third in-season 
tournament of the year... the Revs have already competed in - and won - SuperLiga 2008, 
while they also reached the semifinal round of the 2008 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup ... New 
England will play at least 10 games in outside competitions this season, with the possibility of 
that total jumping to 16 if the club advances to the group stage of the Champions League. 

FALL IS THE BUSY SEASON 

With the CONCACAF Champions League underway, the possibility exists that from now on, 
the Revs will have to play two games per week every week through the start of the MLS Play¬ 
offs (except for two weeks when the team has Thursday night MLS games)... either way, the 
Revolution is in the midst of a stretch that sees the club play 11 games in 38 days (two games 
per week from Aug. 5 until Sept. 11). 

FORMATION ROTATION 

While the Revolution remained in a 4-4-1-1 formation for the entirety of the first leg at Joe 
Public FC last Tuesday night (Aug. 26), injuries and substitutions resulted in a number of 
Revs playing several different positions throughout the course of the match ... Steve Ralston 
began as a withdrawn forward behind Taylor Twellman, but Ralston was replaced by Wells 
Thompson in the 25th minute after suffering back spasms ... Thompson took over at left 
midfield, pushing Mauricio Castro into the withdrawn forward position ... in the 65th minute, 
Amaechi Igwe replaced right midfielder Sainey Nyassi, but Igwe slotted into left midfield, 
pushing Thompson wide right... the Revs made their final change in the 80th minute, when 
Joe Germanese replaced Castro ... Germanese took over on the right wing, while Thompson 
switched back to left midfield and Igwe dropped into the center of defense ... Jeff Larentow- 
icz, who began as a central defender, pushed up into a central midfield position, while Shalrie 
Joseph took over as the withdrawn forward. 

REVS CONTINUE TO MIX-AND-MATCH FORMATIONS 

After briefly returning to their preferred 3-5-2 formation against D.C. on Aug. 20, the Revs have 
deployed a 4-4-1-1 setup in their past three matches (at Toronto, Aug. 23; at Joe Public FC, 
Aug. 26; against LA, Aug. 30)... with Adam Cristman, Kheli Dube and Kenny Mansally all 
unavailable because of injury, Taylor Twellman has been left as the only true striker available 
... Michael Parkhurst has paired with Jay Heaps, Jeff Larentowicz, Gabriel Badilla and 
Amaechi Igwe in the center of a four-man backline, while Steve Ralston, Shalrie Joseph 
and Khano Smith have all played as a withdrawn forward behind Twellman ... in addition to 
the 4-4-1-1, the Revs have used 3-5-2, 4-4-2 and 3-4-2-1 formations this season as injuries, 
suspensions and national team call-ups have dictated, 

CASTRO FINDS THE BACK OF THE NET 

Mauricio Castro converted a penalty kick in the 76th minute of the 2-1 loss at Joe Public FC 
last Tuesday night (Aug. 26), marking his first goal since signing with the Revs on Feb. 18 of 
this year... Castro calmly slotted his attempt into the lower left corner of the net, sending Joe 
Public goalkeeper Alejandro Figueroa the wrong way... Shalrie Joseph earned the penalty, 
as he was tripped in the box by defender Carlyle Mitchell. 

ALL-TIME ASSIST-LEADER RALSTON DOES IT AGAIN ... 

Steve Ralston picked up his team-leading fifth assist of the season on Aug. 20 against D.C., 
as he combined with Taylor Twellman to set up Jeff Larentowicz for the game-winning goal 
in the 49th minute ... the assist was the 126th of Ralston’s career, while it was his 37th career 
game-winning assist - both of which are tops in MLS history. 

... AND CONTINUES CLIMB UP THE 2008 LEADERBOARD 

With yet another game-winning assist on Aug. 20 against D.C., Steve Ralston is now second 
in the league with four game-winning assists, trailing only Columbus' Guillermo Barros 
Schelotto (5)... proving that he can finish as well as pass, the Revs’ captain is also tied for the 


league-lead in game-winning goals (4)... in MLS action, Ralston is tied with Adam Cristman 
for the Revolution lead in goals (6), while he leads the team in assists (5)... in all competi¬ 
tions, Ralston is tops on the team in both goals (7) and assists (9). 

RALSTON TOPPING THE ALL-TIME CHARTS 

Steve Ralston owns five MLS career records, tying him with Chivas USA's Ante Razov for 
the most MLS career records of any player... he is the league’s career leader in minutes 
(31,223), games (353), starts (350), assists (126) and game-winning assists (37)... Ralston 
is also second in career corner kicks (655)... Razov owns the shots, shots on goal, offsides, 
game-winning goals and multi-goal games records ... known more as an assist-man than 
a goal scorer, Ralston has also scored 67 career goals, which places him 13th on the MLS 
career list. 

NICOL CLIMBS INTO TIE FOR THIRD PLACE ON ALL-TIME WINS LIST 

Head coach Steve Nicol picked up his 86th career win on Aug. 20 against D.C. (2-1) and 
jumped into a tie for third place on MLS’ career wins list with Bob Gansler... Bob Bradley 
(124) and Sigi Schmid (108) occupy the top two spots, with Schmid and Bruce Arena being 
the only active coaches besides Nicol in the top 10 ... Nicol has led the Revs to 308 points 
during his seven-year coaching career, which is the third-highest total in MLS history... during 
his tenure in Foxborough - which began full-time in 2002 - Nicol has led the Revs to each of 
the last six Eastern Conference Championship matches (an MLS record) and four of the last 
six MLS Cups, including each of the last three. 

DUBE STATES HIS CASE FOR ROOKIE OF THE YEAR ... 

Forward Kheli Dube has made a strong case for Rookie of the Year honors with his perfor¬ 
mance to this point in the season, as the Zimbabwe native has notched four goals and three 
assists in MLS action ... Dube, who was chosen in the first round (eighth overall) in the 2008 
MLS Supplemental Draft, has notched five goals and three assists in 22 appearances (14 
starts) in all competitions this season. 

... BUT THE INJURY BUG BITES 

Kheli Dube will have to wait to add to his scoring totals, as the rookie forward is currently 
out injured with a strained right adductor... Dube has already missed the Revs’ last five MLS 
matches, while he’s expected to miss a total of 6-8 weeks dating back to Aug. 5. 

MAN-GAME LOST NUMBER CONTINUES TO CLIMB 

The Revs have lost 70 man-games because of injuries 22 games into the MLS regular 
season ... Taylor Twellman (14), Gary Flood (10), Steve Ralston (6), Rob Valentino, Wells 
Thompson, Kheli Dube and Kenny Mansally (5 each), Chris Albright (4), Sainey Nyassi 
and former Rev Matthew Britner (3 each), Matt Reis, Khano Smith, Adam Cristman and 
former Rev Joe Franchino (2 each), Jeff Larentowicz and Mauricio Castro (1 each) have 
all missed games because of injury this year. 

WITHOUT WARNING 

The Revs have amassed the fewest number of yellow cards (29) in the league so far this sea¬ 
son ... every other team in the league has at least 30 cautions, as Colorado (33) has picked 
up the second-fewest yellow cards ... D.C. leads the league with 53 cautions. 

STAYING ON 

New England has been offside far fewer times than any other team in the league this season 
... the Revs have been offside just 29 times in 22 games, while Columbus (46) has been 
offside the second-fewest number of times ... in comparison, the Revolution has been called 
offside an average of 1.32 times per game, while Columbus has been offside 2.09 times per 
game ... Houston leads the league, having been called offside 78 times for an average of 3,71 
times per game. 

GAME-WINNING GOALS FOR EVERYONE 

With his game-winning goal against D.C. on Aug. 20, Jeff Larentowicz became the seventh 
player to score a game-winning goal in an MLS match for the Revolution this season ... in 
addition to Larentowicz, Steve Ralston (4), Kheli Dube (2), Sainey Nyassi, Khano Smith, 
Taylor Twellman and Adam Cristman (1 each) have all scored game-winners this season. 

HITTING THE TARGET... 

The Revolution has the highest shots-on-goal percentage in the league, having put 129 of its 
252 shots on target for a percentage of 51.19 ... no other team in the league has a percentage 
higher than 50 percent. 

... WITH RALSTON AND CASTRO LEADING THE CHARGE 
Steve Ralston, who is tied for 10th in MLS in goals with six, has managed to reach that 
mark by taking just 14 shots ... Ralston's scoring percentage of 42,86 percent is tops in the 
league ... meanwhile, Mauricio Castro leads the league in shots-on-goal percentage, as the 
Honduran has put 18 of his 25 shots on frame (72.00 percent). 




CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION VS. JOE PUBLIC FC 


SCORING TO WIN 

New England is 11-2-5 in MLS games in which it has scored at least one goal this season ... 
the Revs have drawn with New York twice (1-1, April 19; 1-1, June 18), D.C. (2-2, May 29), 
Toronto (1-1, Aug. 23) and LA (2-2, Aug. 30), while they've won 11 of the other 13 games in 
which they've scored ... the Revs' only losses in games in which they've scored are a pair of 
2-1 setbacks to Real Salt Lake (June 21) and Chicago (Aug. 9). 

TAKING THEIR KNOCKS... 

New England is the most fouled team in MLS, having racked up 320 fouls suffered in 22 
games for an average of 14.55 fouls suffered per game ... Columbus is second with an aver¬ 
age of 13.64 fouls suffered per game ... amazingly, the Revolution doesn’t have anyone in the 
top 10 in the league in fouls suffered, while the club also suffered the lowest number of fouls in 
a single game by any team this season (3, at Toronto on Aug. 23). 

REVS CLAIM SUPERLIGA 2008 TITLE 

The Revolution became the first MLS team to earn the title of SuperLiga champion on Tues¬ 
day, Aug. 5, as the Revs claimed the 2008 crown by defeating league rival Houston Dynamo, 
6-5, in penalty kicks after 90 minutes of regulation and two 15-minute periods of extra time 
finished tied at 2-2 ... Nate Jaqua and Kei Kamara twice gave Houston the lead - once in 
regulation and once in extra time - but Steve Ralston and Shalrie Joseph scored equalizers 
for New England on both occasions to send the match to penalties ... the teams were unable 
to decide a winner until the eighth round of kicks, when Revs defender Chris Albright buried 
his penalty down the middle and Dynamo midfielder Corey Ashe hit the crossbar with his 
effort, handing the Revolution the title. 

TWO SEASONS, TWO TITLES ... 

New England's SuperLiga 2008 championship triumph earned the club its second cup champi¬ 
onship in less than a year... on Oct. 3, 2007, the Revs won their first-ever cup title when they 
defeated FC Dallas, 3-2, in the U.S. Open Cup Final at Pizza Hut Park. 


...AND AIMING FOR MORE 

With the SuperLiga 2008 trophy on the shelf and their run in the 2008 U.S. Open Cup over, 
the Revs will now turn their attention to the MLS regular-season title and MLS Cup 2008, 
while also competing in the inaugural CONCACAF Champions League, which is currently 
underway. 

OPEN CUP TITLE DEFENSE COMES TO AN END IN NATION'S CAPITAL 

The Revs’ title defense in the 2008 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup was brought to an end in 
the semifinal on Tuesday, Aug. 12, with a 3-1 loss to D.C. United at RFK Stadium ... Luciano 
Emilio finished a feed from Bryan Namoff in the fourth minute to give United an early lead, 
before Joe Germanese leveled the score with an unassisted tally in the 34th minute ... 
Santino Quaranta broke the deadlock with a goal in the 48th minute and Emilio added the 
insurance with his second goal of the match in the 81st minute, ending New England’s hunt 
for its second consecutive U.S. Open Cup title. 

NICOL, REIS, JOSEPH AND RALSTON LEAD MLS ALL-STARS 

Led by head coach Steve Nicol, goalkeeper Matt Reis and midfielders Shalrie Joseph and 
Steve Ralston, the MLS All-Stars defeated English Premier League side West Ham United, 
3-2, in the 2008 Pepsi MLS All-Star game on Thursday July 24 at BMO Field in Toronto ... 
Reis made four saves in 70 minutes of action to earn the victory between the pipes, while 
Joseph played the entire match in the defensive midfield ... Ralston entered the game in the 
88th minute and took over at right back, a position he has filled for the Revs at times in the 
past... the win was the MLS All-Stars’ fifth in five matches against foreign opposition ... Nicol 
led the MLS All-Stars to victory for the second straight year, as he was also at the helm as the 
league’s best defeated Scottish power Celtic, 2-0, in 2007 ... goals from Colorado's Christian 
Gomez, Chicago’s Cuauhtemoc Blanco and Houston’s Dwayne De Rosario were enough to 
overcome a pair of strikes by West Ham’s England international, Dean Ashton.
