Carlisle says:

A lack of possession continues to plague the Revolution.

You’re telling us!

All week, New England coach Steve Nicol stressed the importance of possession to his team’s success.

So the club’s struggles in that area of the game last night against the Colorado Rapids shone even brighter than in previous losses.  Further, the control over the ball that the Revolution yielded drew the club’s public ire.

“We gave them so much time on the ball that with those five in the midfield, that it affected us instead of us breaking it down and attacking,” said New England defender and former Rapid Cory Gibbs.  “So I think that pressure came too late and ultimately we lost from it.”

The Revolution fell to the Rapids 2-1 against Colorado on Saturday night.  The match was the first of three straight at home for New England.

New England’s two major issues during the match — possession on the offensive end and the inability to limit possession defensively — are areas of the game where injured captain Shalrie Joseph would certainly be able to help.

Preston Burpo will be in goal against his former club.

Welcome to Six States, One Blog’s coverage of tonight’s match between the New England Revolution and the Colorado Rapids.  The Revs are hosting the match at Gillette Stadium.  Here are some early notes.

-Tonight’s match marks the first of three straight at home for the Revs.  The club has played well on the East coast and was dominant in its lone home game, beating Toronto FC 4-1.  The three game stretch presents New England with a serious opportunity to improve its position in the MLS standings.

Jeff Larentowicz and Wells Thompson are returning to New England, having been traded to Colorado in the offseason for Cory Gibbs, Preston Burpo, and a 2011 third round draft pick.  Larentowicz, Gibbs, and Burpo are all expected to start, and Thompson can be expected to enter the game as a substitute.  The Revolution’s Nico Colaluca is also a former Rapid and may see action.  Colaluca will be making his season debut, having just this week fully recovered from a knee sprain.

A couple quotes of note:

Is Jankauskas ready to go in 2010?

by Adam Vaccaro

Revs striker Edgaras Jankauskas has been participating heavily in training this week.  On Tuesday, he was listed as a full participant, and on Wednesday, the Lithuanian striker assisted on a nifty play in an 8-on-8 scrimmage.

Through only four matches, it’s tough to really gauge the Revs’ offensive attack.  Five of the club’s six goals come from two players, one of whom has seen very little playing time this season (Kenny Mansally, who scored two against DC United in the match’s second half).  Rookie forward Zack Schiwalski is responsible for three more, all recorded within fourteen minutes of the Revs’ 4-1 victory over Toronto FC.  Aside from the small number of scorers, the season’s sample size at large is still far too small to make any claims.
