Joseph, Reis (in the picture), and Twellman (not - hello, double entendre) have combined to play in one match this season.

Where is the New England Revolution’s money tied up?

With it stars, of course.

Credit to poster REV IT UP over at BigSoccer.com‘s Revs’ forum for these numbers:

Between Shalrie Joseph ($450,000 a year), Taylor Twellman ($395,000), and Matt Reis ($173,344), the Revolution have invested $1,018,344 for 2010.

This accounts for 39.94% of the 2010 salary cap ($2.55 million).

This season, between the three, one game has been played.

Joseph was granted his leave of absence on Saturday.

by Adam Vaccaro

Big news today, as the Revolution announced that captain and center back Shalrie Joseph has been granted an indefinite leave of absence from the club.  Personal matters is the cited reason for the leave; no other details have been released.  The Twitterverse seems to be of the “respect his privacy” state of mind, so we’ll see whether or not we get any further information on this story in the coming days.

From a soccer perspective, though, Joseph’s leave opens up a whole lot of talking points.  Let’s run through them.

Revolution mid-fielder Shalrie Joseph has been granted and has taken an indefinite leave of absence from the club.

The captain’s leave is mysterious.  All we have thus far is as follows, from the Revolution.

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.

Revs captain Shalrie Joseph does not expect to play in tonight’s match against Colorado.

From Frank Dell’Apa‘s Boston.com article this morning:

“I don’t think I’m going to be out there, I’m not even close to where I was two weeks ago in terms of health and fitness,’’ Joseph said. “I’m going for treatment and I’m optimistic for next week [against FC Dallas].’’

Look for Pat Phelan to get the start if Joseph cannot go.  The Revs may also opt for a 3-5-2 or 4-5-1 formation in  his absence to clog the middle some.

Today’s injury report features a few noteworthy changes from Tuesday’s earlier edition.  The Revolution will take on the Colorado Rapids in Foxborough tomorrow night.

Edgaras Jankauskas and Niko Colaluca, both of whom were listed as questionable on Tuesday, are not listed at all.  Whether these two would play has been the basis of much Revs talk over the last week.  Now we know that they will both be available.  Jankauskas could help the Revs given his prowess as a possession-based player — a place where coach Steve Nicol has said the club needs to improve — and Colaluca will be fired up to face his old team.

The Revolution’s early injury report is out.  As we noted earlier today, Shalrie Joseph and Edgaras Jankauskas have both been upgraded from doubtful to questionable.  Jankauskas, in fact, was a full participant at today’s training, which is obviously good news for both the Revs and the forward as he makes his way back from a right calf strain.
