Revolution History

The concept of bringing a professional soccer team to Massachusetts was a natural idea when the framework of Major League Soccer was being developed in the mid-1990s. The area had a stadium that was not only equipped for the sport of soccer but also had a history of hosting sensational soccer events. There was a committed owner who had already made his mark on the region's sports landscape. And a passionate and loyal fan base was eager to welcome a team it could call its own.

Sure enough, on October 17, 1995, the New England Revolution was born. Behind the leadership of Owner/Investor Robert Kraft and the Kraft family, along with General Manager Brian O'Donovan, the Revolution secured Foxboro Stadium as its home venue and settled in as one of the 10 original organizations of Major League Soccer.

The team began its inaugural 1996 campaign under Head Coach Frank Stapleton, fielding such top players as Alexi Lalas, Welton, Mike Burns and, later in the 1996 season, leading scorer Joe-Max Moore. The first match in team history, on April 13, 1996, was a 3-2 loss to the Mutiny in Tampa Bay but the Revolution came back exactly one week later to post the franchise's first victory, a 1-0 win at Giants Stadium against the NY/NJ MetroStars. The next week, New England prevailed in its first game at Foxboro Stadium, defeating eventual champion D.C. United, 2-1, in a shootout. The topsy-turvy first season was highlighted by an exceptional month of July, in which the Revs went 5-2, including a four-game win streak. In the middle of the month, Alexi Lalas and Welton represented New England in the first MLS All-Star game. Not to be overlooked during July, the Revs made a transaction on July 24, obtaining Joe-Max Moore as an allocation. He made his Revs debut in a loss to Kansas City on July 27 and scored both goals in a 2-0 win over San Jose four days later. The Revolution did not find a spot in the MLS playoffs that year with a 15-17 record but a foundation for professional soccer in Foxborough had been established.

Revolution History: 2003

The 2003 Revolution season began with a sense of optimism as the club looked to build on its successes from the 2002 season. In the season opener on April 13, defending MLS Budweiser Scoring Champion Taylor Twellman resumed his torrid goal scoring pace, notching the game-tying goal for the Revolution in a 1-1 draw at the Chicago Fire in Naperville, Ill. Adin Brown also served notice that he was still a force to be reckoned with, saving a Rodrigo Faria penalty kick. After the Revs dropped their home opener 2-1 to the Crew on April 19, Twellman continued his goal scoring, leading the Revs to their first victory of the season, in a 2-1 triumph over the Dallas Burn in Southlake, Texas. Joe-Max Moore also scored his first of the campaign, and his first since rejoining the Revs after three years in England with Everton.

On May 10th, the Revolution won its first home match of the year with a 2-0 win over the Los Angeles Galaxy in a rematch of MLS Cup 2002, and improved to 2-2-1. The Revolution continued its hot streak with victories over Chicago (3-0 at home) on May 17 and at Columbus on May 24, when Twellman scored in the 89th minute to give the Revs a 3-2 comeback win. On May 21, however, the Revs would lose a late two-goal lead to Kansas City; the game ended in a disappointing 2-2 draw.

Still, after the tie with K.C., New England was unbeaten in five games. With nearly one-third of the season gone, the team was off to its best start in club history with a 4-2-3 record and 15 points from nine games. The Revs also were in second place in the Eastern Conference, as well as the overall league table, just behind the MetroStars.

On June 14, New England saw its unbeaten run snapped as the Revs fell 4-1 to the Colorado Rapids in Denver. A frustrating 1-1 draw against D.C. followed, a game the Revs felt as though they did enough to win, as rookie Pat Noonan hit the woodwork twice in overtime. The Revs then capped the month off with a great 3-2 comeback win over Colorado on June 28.

July 2003 was a difficult month for the Revolution. New England lost a 3-0 lead in the second half versus the MetroStars on July 12th, hanging on for a 3-3 draw on national television. A 2-1 home loss to Dallas on July 16th seemed an unjust result after a match in which the Revs were on the attack for most of the game. On July 19th, the Revolution suffered their second consecutive defeat when they fell to the Chicago Fire 3-1, a game that saw the Revs start a third-choice backline. In the end, third string keeper Kyle Singer played eight minutes as a forward and only a late Twellman goal saved some face for the Revs. This was the first time the Revs had lost back-to-back matches since August 2002. July was drawing to a close, and the 23rd of this month turned out to be a significant date - the Revs' 1-1 draw in Columbus marked the Revolution debut of Uruguayan midfielder JosŽ Cancela, the player who would prove to be the lynchpin of the Revs' attack in the second half of the season.

In August, after the All-Star break, bad luck continued for the Revs when they gave up a stoppage time goal to lose 1-0 in D.C. on August 9th. Then, on August 23rd in L.A., Twellman, was kicked by the Galaxy's Danny Califf as Twellman dove for a header. The Revs' superstar suffered a concussion, broken nose and fractured cheekbone and would be forced to sit out the next four games. The Revs had gone a frustrating two months without a win, but on August 30th, the team produced their biggest offensive output in more than two years in a 5-1 shellacking of Chicago Fire at Gillette Stadium. The game saw newly acquired forward Chris Brown post a hat trick in his first start at Gillette Stadium. Despite earning the win, however, New England remained mired in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.

Following a 2-1 loss to San Jose on September 6th, the Revs triggered a late season run similar to their 5-0-1 streak in 2002. A 2-1 win over the MetroStars at Giants Stadium was the first piece to the puzzle, followed by a home draw with Colorado. On September 28, the Revs' unlikely 3-2 overtime comeback win over Columbus confirmed that momentum had swung the Revs' way - captain Joe Franchino providing the golden goal heroics with a memorable left-footed freekick. Two weeks later, a Steve Ralston overtime penalty kick versus D.C. sealed a post-season berth at the earliest point in the season in team history - with two games to go before the playoffs. Two straight defeats of the MetroStars in October clinched second place in the Eastern Conference.

The Revs headed into the playoffs on a five-game win streak and 6-0-1 in their final seven matches, bettering their run from 2002. Though team MVP Twellman (15 goals) was side-lined for the remainder of the season with a stress fracture in his left foot, the Revs found scoring through Gatorade Rookie of the Year finalist Noonan (10 goals), Brian Kamler (a career-high 6 goals) and a cast of others. The Revs were the highest scoring team in the MLS (55 goals) in the regular season.

Several members of the Revs had breakout seasons, including Noonan, Kamler, Cancela and rookie midfielder Shalrie Joseph. Adin Brown continued his stellar play in goal and Ralston established himself in the U.S. National Team picture with a notable performance in the CONCA-CAF Gold Cup. Head Coach Steve Nichol once again got him team to peak at the right time.

Revolution History: 2003 Playoffs

For a second straight season, the Revs took great momentum into the postseason. Despite missing several key players - including leading scorer Taylor Twellman - New England opened its Eastern Conference Semifinal series with a 2-0 road win over the MetroStars with goals from Dario Fabbro and Metros-killer Pat Noonan. With a comfortable cushion in the aggregate goals series, the Revs then played to 1-1 draw in front of 14,823 at Gillette Stadium in the Game Two, comfortably beating the MetroStars 3-1 on aggregate and earning the right to move on to the semifinal round of the playoffs for the second time in franchise history.

The next opposition for the Revs was the Chicago Fire at the newly refurbished Soldier Field in Chicago. The Fire owned home field advantage as a result of their first place finish during the regular season, and it turned out to be a crucial factor in the one-game semifinal.

The Revs battled hard throughout the game, but the dogged pressure from the Fire's central midfield axis of Chris Armas and Jesse Marsch stymied the Revs' ability to play through Shalrie Joseph and JosŽ Cancela. The Fire had several scoring chances in each half, but the Revs' defense - and goalkeeper Adin Brown, in particular - kept Chicago off the board.

Scoreless after ninety minutes, the game went to overtime with the home crowd heaving in the stands just behind Brown's goal. The Fire finally broke through in the eleventh minute of overtime. Mapp used his pace to turn the corner on the right wing and then delivered a cross to Armas, who slotted it past Brown, destroying the Revs dreams of reaching a second consecutive MLS Cup.

For a second straight season, the Revolution turned around what looked to be a disastrous season and put together an amazing late-season winning streak, followed by a run deep into the playoffs. Despite the heartbreak of falling an overtime goal short of the final, the injury-depleted Revs exceeded all reasonable expectations down the stretch and can only be looking to build on their success with the core of the 2003 team returning for another campaign.
