A heartbroken US soccer fanbase shifts at least some of its attention back to its domestic product. It’s not going to be as pretty as the international game, but at least it gives them something to cheer for on the soccer field.

Not that Revs fans got to do a ton of cheering in the season’s opening weeks. Prior to the World Cup break, New England put up a 3-7-2 record. They’ll look to get to work on bettering that mark against Chicago on Sunday night.

Some notes, thoughts, and the like before this one gets started…

More bad news for the Revs: A setback has ended Taylor Twellman‘s 2010 MLS season and perhaps his Revolution career.

Twellman has not played this season and saw the field only twice in 2009 as he continues to recover from head and neck issues borne of a 2008 collision.

The press release from the Revolution:

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution has placed forward Taylor Twellman on the team’s season-ending injury list with continued health issues stemming from an Aug. 30, 2008, in-game collision with former LA Galaxy goalkeeper Steve Cronin.

The decision to move Twellman to the season-ending list was made after he suffered a setback in his rehabilitation in mid-May. He last participated in a Revolution training session on Tuesday, May 18.

“We’re extremely disappointed for Taylor that this setback has ended his season,” Revolution Vice President of Player Personnel Michael Burns. “He was working hard to return to the field in 2010.”

“My goal from the start of this season was to be back on the field this year,” Twellman said. “I’m very disappointed that this setback has derailed that goal.”

Twellman had mentioned in an interview with RevolutionSoccer.net earlier this season that he planned to return to the field this season. His contract expires at the end of the 2010 campaign, leaving his future both with New England and in soccer at large very much up in the air.

Presently, the striker is providing World Cup coverage for Comcast SportsNet New England.

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.

As the Revolution are now 1/3 of the way through their MLS campaign and the blog a bit slow of late, I figured I’d throw together an assessment of the team’s individual players through the season’s first segment. The grades and assessments are based only on MLS play.

The grades are also weighted – the players are in competition with one another here, not with the rest of the league and certainly not with the rest of the soccer universe. Brief tangent: I never understood teachers/professors that didn’t weight grades. If nearly everyone has a C, then the kid who has the C+ did best in the class. So he should get the A. Right? Maybe I took too competitive an approach to school, though that wouldn’t explain all the nights I put off papers and studying to engage in whatever inane activity was to be undergone instead…

Right then. Here are the grades in ascending order of quality, because it’s more fun to write about those with whom one or one’s readership is pleased.

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.

Taylor Twellman sat and talked with RevolutionSoccer.net's Jeff Lemieux.

The Revs’ all-time leading scorer Taylor Twellman talked last week with RevolutionSoccer.net’s Jeff Lemieux.  In the interview, put online today, Twellman speaks at length about the injury that has kept him out for most of the last two years.

Amongst topics covered were the injury’s occurrence, his failed attempt to come back early, his on-going recovery, how he’s doing off the field, the Revs’ performance, and his commitment to the club.
