Sun, 11 Mar 2012|
Brad Feldman and Jeff Causey host the Revs Wrap postgame show following a 1-0 Revs loss to the Quakes.
-- for the first time in 2012. -- -- California with the revolution just -- to the San Jose earthquakes one to zero Brett felt -- for the first time I really draft with Jeff -- Jeff some good sides of the reds but overall not enough to get a result here in ninety for -- as a coach and it's a tough loss for them a lot of good things to work on. But you know good plays out here are some good individual plays but he felt automatic rate game couple tough shots there. But again human too many that mistakes the fact too many too many chances quality chances for a for -- and that there that one. The -- -- there early the first half. All right Kevin Alston is joining us down the field revolution. Right back -- Kevin. How did you feel out there at the new group of guys coming out of the game. I'm -- felt OK you know but I think we kinda side away from the things that we're going off pre season and no we came out and we had a game plan that we really stick to it from the start and kind of waited for them. Make a move the masters testing we kind of we can put them on the back foot like we needed this. All right Kevin and you got some new guys back there was Otto and you know -- some unfamiliar faces how does that change the dynamic. All I mean it's a new team that you know we've we've we've been working together all pre season you know you gotta. -- each other's tendencies of new players though you know took that in the new system too so it's a little different style but we've been working on it together so that it doesn't change anything at this point. -- -- let you go thanks for sticking around I think. But also that's -- with some good moments he uses speed well and I. Jay heaps -- play that position is working me and also is his fourth year now him and also has the speed. He had the quality there just again there are a couple. My mistakes which is -- thousand in the corner where you could've stood him up there but again he has the speed there is good one on one defender just first came here. Find out Jay heaps joins us down on the field Jays thanks for sticking around and it has to be it a disappointed. What are your thoughts and your team performs tonight. It was -- Pointing in the way we start the game of the leader -- about the intense. The -- to we think it would bring more than that and you go to a game like that enjoy playing against Leno you know you played against what allows you know if they're gonna try to look to pick falls apart. And it was just more Smart when now when we had a chance to be. -- you mentioned Len heart and then and obviously one -- on the goal but. -- are for me just bruised and everybody up top there did you expect that coming into the game. Absolutely we talked about it at length we showed video that we we talked about it but I I NT get out there and can you go against it it's. You know it's it's it's the real thing. All right -- we'll talk you don't support it. That obviously could see -- display it on his face because you talked about he won that intensity of both Alston. And heat to the didn't match the intensity out of the gate which is exactly what they did in the pre season bit. It gets turned up a notch here you went when the games are for real. Actually I mean Jays a gamer. He wants to be out there just as much as he once you know that the team to play well. And for him it's that it's a tough first loss and he's been building this for several months now he wants that first victory the first came to come out on top. -- let's take a look at the highlights the revolution did generate some attacking play in the first half. The guys ultimately voted man of the match for the -- by the fans that he felt -- went close on the shot trying to catch. Bush leading the wrong way in San Jose had a chance of their own. Okay did here in hard it's in the -- and hard knocks off the morale that one that gets in the way there but again they had too many good chances there. And his of the golf for the giveaways Salinas for a while the last few -- -- -- -- all the season his sixth consecutive MLS game which he scored. I want to do -- well I guess that people when he gets the chance -- there he's gonna -- nine out of ten of how many shows that there why he's one of the top goals fortunately. The rest of the attacking free kick -- offer rolls into the area AJ Soares couldn't leave the game. In the second half with a header that went just wide. That the reds -- Play by giveaways in the first half you saw it led to the ball. And then another one here schori toast he said the time is on characteristic he gets -- ball the ball but the much smaller -- It's just what's in the best game for that a lot of different risk if the ball's way in bad areas that lead to good chances it's a turnover at the fast breaks but. That's on the big -- on -- one bright spot for the revolution with the insertion. New lease sign that we win and he won the ball there who's the good driving right here merely created equalizing goal. And then at the end they almost tied it. Having that chance there at everybody office seats ready to go again one chance late in the game that's all -- but he was just driving from minute one minute ninety. The finals that's brought you. Five Budweiser great time to -- grab some floods. In the end shots or 66. Possession. Earthquakes at 51 the 49. For the red so you know on the stat sheet. It was a fairly evenly played game one nothing. And the reds had their chances to equalize so some people might think -- thoroughly outplayed all the way it looks. Now it definitely even match I mean there should be a third column where neither team had possession -- -- -- -- I think that way it went -- wife column right now but -- that they gave the bull which in many times I gave thinner than a lot of easy. Easy chances to get into that eighteen yard box. And making him that the one nice thing if they can work on that through the next couple weeks but those mistakes out which is better individual play. Folks I go to the mobile device here's -- if you Emery from. I Seth man 31 access man 31 on Twitter asks us is tonight's play more indicative of the team not Joliet. Or they're more. Pieces meeting to be fill all star placing again they -- -- sayers and or Jose Marino so they're two pieces that are big parts of the puzzle were not available tonight and he also did that Chris -- at left back. Right Tierney is always a solid consistent again that was a strong back for. A strong midfield the two that you mentioned the front runners they're they're more unknowns but that's the place that's plagued the reds probably the past couple seasons where most of their goals are coming from the midfield line. And not their forward line with those two in place there are good too big players physical players can hold the ball but they can also score goals. Madson has got a got two wheels to left footed player one more knuckles and CL that knuckles. And CL. Are the reds are looking into the July transfer window as rumored. Or are they content with the team they have to make the playoffs I would say this and again we're not privy to the inner machinations of of the front office. But until they fill their dance card they're always looking to get signed Jeremiah white. Marino could turn the turn out to be the goods we don't know yet so this is hardly. Thought the complete picture tonight for the rest part it was a suspension. To -- the injury. -- sand and and my rate not be available yet because of his visa process. Right and then AJ -- it's gets gets knocked around early in the first in the first half and then he was definitely slower is that half went on. Again not having a lot of the full team injures right before the games that shook things up for them but now everybody's gonna try to upgrade as they go put. The first -- season's going to be tough to say yes this is our team or no -- we're constantly looking. You know they're not gonna broadcast sent out there that were consulate because it gives it is not gonna give anybody any confidence. Every team is always looking what's got -- are able to -- now move on to play 1 of the eastern power houses sporting Kansas City at live strong. Sporting park and that is gonna be our alternate channels. So check your local listings -- it's on the Comcast sports net but on overflow channels 8:30 PM.

All right my thanks to the guys in the truck can't hear John Jackson -- -- crew here in Santa Clara just cause -- terrific debut. We've had in the book.
