A few heres and theres coming out of last night’s 1-0 loss to the Chicago Fire…

  • Matt Reis started the game, making his 2010 MLS debut. Reis played the first half of the Revs’ exhibition against Cruzeiro back on June 13, but last night marked his return to league play. Reis missed the season’s first 12 matches after offseason rotator cuff and knee surgeries. Reis stopped 4 of 5 shots on goal but took the loss in the match.
  • Revs’ third round pick and recent signing Jason Griffiths made his MLS debut after coming on in the 81st minute. Griffiths did participate in the Revs’ exhibition against Portugal’s Benfica earlier this season when he was on trial with the club, but last night marked the English midfielder’s first league match. Griffiths gave some chippy defensive play in the match’s final ten minutes. Said Griffiths: “I was kind of nervous coming in losing 1-0 and I was expecting an attacking player to go on but it was great to get on. It was a disappointing score but the boys tried hard and we can push on for next week and get a good result.”
  • With Griffith replacing striker Zack Schilawski, Shalrie Joseph was pushed up top. Coach Steve Nicol explained: “When you’re getting into the last 10 minutes of the game and their sitting back and we’re getting desperate, we’re basically hoping Shalrie can get on the end of something.”

The Revolution are now 1-7-2 after a promising 2-1-0 start to the season.

The England native is a 2010 graduate of the University of Kentucky, will provide further depth in the Revs’ midfield and fills one international roster spot. He joins Zack Schilawski, Seth Sinovic, and Zak Boggs as a 2010 draft pick on the current roster.

With Ivan Gvozdenovic, Jason Griffiths, and Jean-Baptiste Fritzson currently on trial with a fatigued Revolution club, it seems as though head coach Steve Nicol will attempt to get the trio some game time in tomorrow night’s exhibition against Portugal’s SL Benfica.  He said today, courtesy of Revolutionsoccer.net:

The Revolution will return to training Tuesday, the day before its anticipated international friendly against SL Benfica.  Though the match will have no effect on New England’s 2010 MLS campaign, you have to think a win would be a big confidence boost for the club, currently mired in a 7 game winless streak (0-5-2 since April 10).  It should also be a treat for the Gillette faithful, many of whom will be coming just to see the 2009-10 Portuguese Liga champions and to get a taste of international soccer.
