Jay Heaps and Brad Feldman bring you the Revs Wrap postgame show after the Revolution break their losing streak with a 2-0 win over FC Dallas tonight.
-- -- From Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. -- just defeated FC Dallas by a score through nothing resting their first win. Since July the twentieth their first victory here at home -- heat or not since -- the fourteenth with eighty Vancouver. -- that's quite a barren spell that they looked like a good MLS team tonight. They did it was a complete them complete performance from start to finish it came out with a game plan that was the play a high 442 probably up high. -- jump high but Sharif Joseph and -- daughter having a lot of room to dictate the game and that's what happened that's that generally. But I was really impressed with the way the team finished that game they've had a lot of pressure on on the given up a lot of goals in Munich games but really it was a way to finish that game they did. No question about it and I'm Matt Reece was also one of the heroes tonight in his fifth. Shutout of the season and he's with our Damon and handle our right now. -- after everything that's happened over the last couple weeks one would might one might assume the guy's potentially a little bit down and yet it seemed like the body language and you guys -- really really. Loose both before the game and at half time of was that a difference in tonight's game for you guys. You know you know last two games haven't gone -- way I think we've played well. Talked about it before the game in the she's gotten -- fun let's keep doing what we're doing you know the results might not have come but I think we put the work and so great you know kind of -- left it a little bit there at the end and and then do we needed new you know. On our breaks it's that it finally get a win will obviously closing has been a bugaboo for you guys what was different tonight vs last couple games. I think we just got possession you know Benny got on the ball a couple of times and got house for -- which is which is key. You know -- a -- -- back a little bit better. And you know it just kept battling and and you know for us even -- We had some some calls didn't go our way we still stuck Edmonton and battle. Finally you look across the field and you see Kevin -- a guy that you have battled many times before but obviously came up through the ranks with how -- -- -- night like tonight we go because a guy like that. Okay yeah those -- both back and play at each other you know made some tremendous saves tonight you know I'm real stuff and you know we're just. Doesn't really affect us to run -- the size of the field. For us it just went home and show our fans. I've missed you back congratulations gentlemen thanks much that -- these guys was about. Thanks -- and thanks Matt. You see some of the chances that Dallas had are they gonna look at the tape from their perspective and say you know what we had enough chance that there's also that indirect kick. Inside the box that they they weren't able to capitalize on say. If things have broken differently this is a game we could've gotten results from. I think so Virginia -- You can count the number -- can -- made those two saves He had to go the entire Superman -- -- to make -- play so really. You know it all in all the reds deserve the three points and I think Dallas to -- you know hard pressed to say you know we should we should have gotten anything from this game. -- let's throw back down to DA who's with the club captain Sharif -- Shall we obviously got the scoring going tonight got that started tonight let's go through your goal you guys got the board first. I yeah I think it was a great team going we kept possession furlough days. And try to get -- alive -- Stevie emphasize that again to bow out and try to get numbers and vox -- I've just been about just look at them. And of course and you -- -- I just want to get contact and animated I've had and luckily for me whenever -- start. Very right -- -- finish things off with a score a great finish for him talkers to tackle as well of the Dallas. I set pieces that set pieces and make a difference especially against a team like Dallas in the dynasties like that. Many would you agree -- drag car reflected in -- perfect position just. Quite finished by him last night in Indianapolis and we needed a second want kind of comes down because we know last couple of minutes we've been under real because there against the law. I -- given up -- like that -- -- -- usually get asset towards making that second half. On the ropes backs against the wall and -- before the game you were all smiles -- look like you're really good attitude what was what was it. What was the feeling for you -- -- going in the locker short memory I guess going back to the last couple games did we emphasize on the just forget my hat in the last -- -- especially -- Xavier university's school in the and it's fun I don't know what I do on the main man of the fans and once -- the opportunity yet to go out and represent us. Those -- my position if his pain and our team is -- I want you guys haven't got haven't that I met -- locker room He makes it -- before. After us half the practice I think you say it's fun to do what we do. And fun to be scored. Goals at this type clipper at the office is coming around. Yeah I mean we've been doing well we've been scoring poses defense we've been certainly been given up way too many goes and it felt great to get that anyone in the right before this enough like that -- great team performance and act -- congrats to the goal of the women think so much appreciated we needed and appreciated. -- just -- back upstairs. Thanks -- go to work tonight -- -- already expressing his. -- his love for the fans and you know he's a guy who loves playing soccer you you know you can see it in the way He plays and that's -- he's -- since he's a small -- Now Chargers have had a complete match and two guys we just heard from now recent sorry just. I felt like with the MVP's tonight now Reese made all the right saves at the right time. And -- Joseph had a big. Big game in the middle He had a lot of possession but also was the goal early and we look at it we come back from a game like they did on Wednesday night. Who do you expect to step up fourth of that from flyers sorry Joseph and Matt. Least that's really the spine of the team and the -- are knocking on the door early if you look at the first half highlights don't broadly right early chance here that two goal game in the last. Five match at home here against New York. And -- you know He nearly He nearly put one away in the early going as you look at the highlights. You know you could see the guy who. You know gets into good scoring positions players get a good -- and you say it right Brad He gets on it would look at how we blazes bought for me that was a perfect way. And circuit did everything right -- defending bonds Jerry Joseph sacrifice himself in -- acting very well near post. -- eight goals this season Dallas back the other way that delivers exactly lawyer Michael Santos who want to. You're much better at that header in the an easy save for -- This is -- good scoring opportunities there the ball and they felt -- Again probably about why. Thought we had a lot of opportunities tonight and then here's -- look at this athletic player from Jackson yet another good night -- that He was all over the place but He couldn't find the back of the net. Heroes -- we're talking about right though. Very smart interceptions flag but doesn't get his hit surrounded him and Darryl was Kevin -- just pushing a wide to his right foot. It does is on favorite but there. Well Hartman was important player tonight for -- as He always is like -- laser. And then at the other end of breeze comes off the line makes -- play Jackson Alexander an accident happening in sequence. When Santo was now at least going down low. He could sit there BC not least all night long at a nice match going down well this is offside there's a terrific job today Phil. -- but not the woodwork and. In his late in the game you see now -- stands up -- carries it over and He had Mike on Sanchez's name all night long. Here is second revolution goal minute 85 they offered the blitz -- conference. Like pitch buries his sixth tally. 2011. Here are your finals. That's. Revolution getting out shot they ever won a game which they've had the edge in shots season so far. Shots on goal 86 in favor of Dallas corner 76 in favor. We'll have CD -- total of 29 golf. Possession of the same as it was at halftime 5842. That suits the reds just fine on this particular you particularly if there. First win since July the. When He -- to DC united. Let's take a look at the Eastern Conference standings the reds improving their position may -- not enough. Still six games to go He can see. Toronto Chicago and New England all knotted at 27. Houston dropping that decision to sporting Kansas City. And that's led to a tie at the top of the Eastern Conference table with the Columbus so you know it's -- at the top it's tight at the bottom. -- A viewer who has given us a rough ride for praising. All the Merrill Toledo during the live telecast saying it's because the revolution. I hit one that we praised him let's. Let's let's have more on that after Steve Nicol addresses the media. Well. I think -- probably just -- of the you know we certainly -- brutal local couple times. The so today you know with them with a few more chances we couldn't go to school. -- -- -- -- Okay how was. It definitely set his. Is there and a few months they have those on. -- -- guess is it's a strange this exchange is tough to explain team that you get a feel. You -- you can in the new hole. When -- night and to be on a certain. -- was overly analytical which culminated in a chance he's. To suggest it would -- more chance he's. The -- -- it was not given -- I was just had a decent outfield and that woo hoo I'm going to make any distinction. And -- -- and and we didn't. -- It's a collective thing you know it was sent to depart for tonight. You know -- -- that you know well and again and you me tendencies. And so important -- completely and couldn't black. And they don't. And it shows that when you know when we need to keep together it is. Make good decisions. That we count when we unions. Bad decisions best bet is best -- some bad decisions you know we will always willow was more of it. Keeping the ball patented all things bad -- -- defensively and if you keep good positions pitchforks. And make good decisions when you're under pressure when you -- them and that's what we did tonight. No He was the fewest tighten. That muse -- and ten and and obviously you excuse excuse to go slow in the. To me particularly urgent. No I think I think that we honestly you know to try and tell him. You know the not a -- pro until last ten minutes they did -- too many people as an example to self. For us that we chalice assaulted them in on. You know when the only in -- -- get it -- him and and they have peace so you know. The victory use it's possible well and then and total defense and get and I and so they do get Joba up. So I was surprised it went by Campbell's. I think Stevie actually let that journals off the hook was basic trying to say Dallas and bring their -- game tonight. You know like let's get the revelers to credit when they do play well. Dallas has played a lot of games. But to say we were you surprised He didn't have a lot of -- a backhanded way of saying. At pickle that you can't take Jackson or Benitez played at that energy guys are flying in Santos had chances -- just in finish. It you know that you have to say just whether the -- out there and and made them play maybe a sub par game in that regard me. There are times when when teams are gonna. Aren't gonna bring their a game to Begin with -- and then there's the ripe for the taking residents -- sometimes the reds don't have a killer instinct 1000 picked up that confidence as the game goes on. And the energy will build -- and they can punish the red so. Credit the rest when it's doing and we boxing certainly the last couple weeks you know given the revolution a lot of criticism because and finish games tonight. Complete performance and and they deserve the credit. And that JC back to that tweet and and I will say this directly to the person to be that. Would you criticize as the revolution on the play by play announcer not a columnist for the newspaper. But do we do. Mean they go hard on the referees I know this MLS has not been happy with the referees we tried to give credit where is -- I don't think -- timing would say that that all the -- Toledo was terrible tonight. I think it's the calls are pretty even both ways. We also said when it was a very strange penalty call in favor of the revolution on Wednesday night so you -- see it however you want but it I you know we try to call it straight. And give credit where it's -- We try and obviously we. You know obviously it's yeah. And you go back and -- is at Ole ball dollar narrowed the lead on Iowa always that a little bit of -- on field. Conflict it's not -- good tonight that when a -- goes out there and has a great game like He did He just played simple wasn't. Hearts either way kept himself out of trouble didn't get way too many cards and and then you know obviously you can't always. Predict who's gonna win but the reds ended up winning this when so and their times obviously were. We're a little bit sort senate on some things but tonight it was it was very good to get criticism and not us pictures. Had a backup are the red now move on to play Portland on Friday night that's games on fox soccer in the revolution radio network are next telecasts on Comcast sports net. Sunday the 25 when the resident of Chicago Fire residents back at home against. Seattle doubters at -- calling 77 get reds for ticket information my thanks to Jon -- engine to dominate in the truck for David Amendola and JD. Brad Feldman. Signing off from Foxboro we'll talk to you next time I'll read that.
