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.”

Today’s  Revolution injury report is now available to the public.

Edgaras Jankauskas has been upgraded from doubtful to questionable. Jankauskas is starting to be labeled by most as a bust, or at least a disappointment, but the Revs are in desparate need of anybody who can score. Perhaps he’ll help the club put the ball in net for the first time in 5 matches when New England hosts New York this weekend.

After missing 8 matches – 6 of which were due to a leave of absence that is now being referred to by some as a suspension – Shalrie Joseph returned to the Revolution on Saturday afternoon against Toronto FC.

Joseph returned to the Revolution against Toronto FC.

And perhaps coincidentally, but probably not, New England entered yesterday’s match mired in an 8 game winless streak. Its last victory? A 4-1 thrashing of the same Toronto club at Gillette Stadium on April 10. Prior to yesterday, this was the only game Joseph had participated in this season.

So there was reasonable optimism amongst Revs fans as Joseph, sporting the Captain’s band and starting at a familiar central mid spot, led his team onto the field for the first time in a month and a half. As such, there was reasonable disappointment to match when the club walked off having fallen victim to a 1-0 defeat in Ontario and stretching the streak to 9 matches, 7 of which count in the MLS standings.

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.

Surely the New England Revolution are frustrated with what is now a 7 game winless streak, but the club spoke positively having looked strong earning a point in a 0-0 tie tonight against the San Jose Earthquakes.

“We’re going in the right direction, and we’ll put a couple in next time,” said Cory Gibbs moments after the game ended.

Indeed, the Revolution controlled much of the game’s pace and, for the second straight league game, looked much improved in two of the season’s early areas of issue.  Playing in a 4-5-1 formation, team possession and midfield play proved to be strengths rather than weaknesses against San Jose.  These combined with the season-long strengths of goaltending and defensive play made for an entertaining tilt, even without a goal.

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.
