Niouky’s mystery

Earlier today, Boston’s pro soccer Examiner LE Eisenmenger published this summary of the mysteries surrounding Joseph Niouky. Regular readers know how I feel about Niouky’s play this season, but this column emphasizes just how very bizarre his young Revolution career really has been.

An excerpt:

That February story notes that, “Desire is a bit of a mystery.” In June 2010, he’s still a mystery, right down to his apparent name change and exactly how he was selected. “Luckily for the Revolution,”states that article, “the only person who has seen Desire play firsthand is a man who knows a thing or two about scouting soccer talent. Head coach Steve Nicol unearthed Desire on an offseason scouting trip to Senegal, and was sufficiently impressed to offer the central midfielder a contract.” Really? Is that all it takes to get a job as an international starting central midfielder in MLS?

Check it out, it’s good stuff.

We’ve received copy of CSNNE’s announcement that Taylor Twellman will be providing Revolution analysis, a story we first reported last Thursday.

Release follows the jump.

Comcast SportsNet New England announced today that Taylor Twellman will be serving as the network’s in-studio analyst during this year’s World Cup. The injured superstar whose status for 2010 remains questionable will begin duties in the capacity on June 10.

Why is this interesting? Because it reflects well on the young relationship between CSNNE and the Revs, because it will get the Revolution more exposure, because it means CSN will be giving the World Cup some solid coverage, and because maybe, just maybe, in the role Twellman will shed some light on his status.

Or maybe not. But at least it’s a bit of Twellman news, which is more than we’ve gotten on that front all season.

With Matt Reis sidelined for this season’s first 2 months, the Revolution signed Haverhill native and former PC Friar Tim Murray earlier this season. Today, the Salem News published John Shimer‘s feature on the young keeper, currently serving as New England’s third keeper.

From the piece:

“I signed with the team in May and I had been training there since the first week in March,” said Murray, who did not see the field against Benfica. “It happened pretty quickly back in March. “Around that time my coach from Providence called me and told me there was an opening with the Revolution and I had the opportunity to try out.

“I’ve now been practicing with the team and training with the team (ever) since, and I signed a short term contract that will basically last the duration of Matt’s time on the disabled list.”

The New England Revolution announced today that Damon Amendolara, host of 98.5 The Sports Hub’s “The DA Show,” has joined its broadcast team as a sideline reporter.

Since coming to Boston last summer by way of Kansas City and Miami, D.A. has been one of very few media personalities to give the Revs any sort of talk and has hosted a for-the-web short this season at Revolutionsoccer.net — “D.A.’s Inside the Fort”– wherein he goes one-on-one with a Revs player for a short interview.

Amendolara will make his debut tomorrow night on Comcast SportsNet New England and 98.5 when the Revs host the San Jose Earthquakes.

It’ll be interesting to see if this inspires a little more soccer talk during DA’s regular gig on The Sports Hub.

The Revolution take on the Colorado Rapids tomorrow night at 7:30 PM.  In preparation, here are some solid links from this past week to whet your appetite.

Jeff Lemieux and RevolutionSoccer.net, of course, have done good work this week.  Lemieux profiled Marko Perovic on Tuesday and considered the importance of the forthcoming three game homestand yesterday.  Cory Gibbs and Darrius Barnes discussed their strategy for slowing down the Rapids’ attack earlier today.  Also today, Lemieux posted this week’s match preview.

Kyle McCarthy discussed Edgaras Jankauskas‘s possible season debut.  Earlier today, he also lamented that we may not get to see former teammates Shalrie Joseph and Jeff Larentowicz match up against one another.  The meeting might have to wait until September 18 in Colorado if Joseph can’t go.

Both the Revolution front office and Comcast SportsNet New England have taken heat since Saturday night’s match against the San Jose Earthquakes experienced some broadcast issues.

CSNNE, the broadcast home of both the Revs and the Boston Celtics, opted to show the Celtics’ playoff game against the Heat.  The Revs match was moved to alternate channels.  But some Revs fans were unable to catch the match.

This thread over at BigSoccer.com puts the ire on vivid display.
