The Best of Both Worlds – 2014 Beer-view: New England Revolution

With Major League Soccer and the rest of American soccer kicking off in just over a week we've curated an impressive list of players, personalities, broadcasters, front office folk, and fans to have them tell us (and you) about their upcoming 2014 season.

And, of course, pair their hopes and dreams for this season with a tasty local brew.

That's not just a preview… it's a “beer-view”.


By Bryan Lincks

Team: New England Revolution

Coach: Jay Heaps

Is he the right man for the job?

Great question, Heaps had a terrible first season as head coach but has proven himself after the team made it to the playoffs last season. I’m not a “In Heaps We Trust” kind of guy, but I won’t argue with those that are.

Player(s) to watch?

Diego Fagundez, Kelyn Rowe, Patrick Mullins, Steve Neumann, and reigning defender of the year Jose Goncalves. Goncalves is interesting after he expressed some desire to leave the team, but on the pitch he is an absolute pro!

Predictions for 2014?

With the Eastern Conference getting better, I fear the Revs miss the playoffs. They are not going to have a bad season, just not good enough to make it back to the promise land.

Local Beer Pairing:

Seeing how this is New England and we are talking beer, it is hard to with a nice cold Sam Adams. Jim Koch and crew Revolutionized the craft brew scene.
