Hank and Steve meet at Biddy Early's Pub on Pearl St in Boston for Lunch Break # 2, and discuss Steve Nicol's starting 11 selections over the last few games.
This week the Revs saw three trialists come into train, played 90 minutes in the rain against Portuguese league champs Benfica, and traveled to Canada to face a much improved Toronto FC. What could top off such an action packed week? How about the return of Shalrie Joseph? Hank, Sean and Brian break it all down and discuss what's next for the New England Revolution in this week's episode.
In this week's episode, the curse of the second microphone crept into the playback, but the content is all good as Hank, Sean and Brian discuss the game against San Jose, the 5 man midfield, Pat Phelan as Center Back, and the state of the New England Revolution roster.
In this first Lunch Break podcast, Hank and Steve take a red pen to the New England Revolution roster and decide who should stay and who should go (it should be noted that while we were recording this, Mauricio Castro was getting his walking papers).
It's all doom and gloom this week on TMR, as Hank, Sean and Brian are distraught and dismayed at the thought of the New England Revolutions performance over the last few weeks. Routed at home by Chivas USA a week ago, the Revs seemed to be a bit more composed in Columbus, but to no avail, as the defense finally cracked under the pressure from the Crew. Who do you blame? Players? Front Office? Head Coach? TMR talks at length about how things are shaping up for the Revs, and what to expect out of them going forward.
Hank and Brian discuss the plight of the New England Revolution's roster in light of the two red cards handed out against the team in last Saturday's match. Also discussed is Shalrie's leave of absence and it's impact on the roster, given that the Revs have 4 games in the next two weeks. Who will step up and lead this team to victory? Not just on the field, but in the locker room as well?
