Can New England Revolution finally win the MLS Cup this year? 

Do you support New England’s very own MLS team? No? Yeah you’re probably better off. Being an immigrant automatically means that I am a soccer fan and since all of the best clubs are in Europe, I’ll have to settle with what I got here. New England Revolution, another team owned by the man himself Robert Kraft and who share Gillette Stadium with the Patriots, has had a hefty history with almost winning the MLS Cup, almost.

New England Revolution has reached the MLS Cup final five times, FIVE TIMES! They have failed to capitalize on all of those chances, losing to LA Galaxy three times and Houston Dynamo two times. To this day they remain without the most prestigious tittle in American soccer. In terms of this season they have had a mediocre start, two wins, two losses, and a draw. Also, losing a major player such as Jermaine Jones has not helped with Revolution’s chances with winning the cup. Currently in ninth place (out of twenty two teams) and with only five games played so far, the cup isn’t exactly out of their reach yet. At this point all we can do is hope that Nguyen (current top scorer) is consistent and we get those three points every game.
