(W)Revs Wrap: Preseason Blues

Not much to report today in New England Revolution news. The two big stories - preseason and Shalrie Joseph's persisting wishes to leave the club - continue to plod along without generating much in the way of excitement.

Soccer New England keeps up with the Joseph story, which has only moved forward in the sense that Joseph hasn't changed his mind about wanting a trade. In the same article, Joseph states he'll show and give "100%" (let's count our blessings; he didn't offer 110%), but I can't see that holding together if things go at all sideways this season.

Then there's the continuing preseason, which shifts venues next week to Louisiana. There, the Revs will play CD Olimpia (Sunday) and the New Orleans Shell Shockers on the PDL (Wednesday). The news here is the growing list of injuries/recoveries (Pat Noonan, Michael Parkhurst, Daniel Hernandez) and absences (Taylor Twellman, Tony Lochhead, Amaechi Igwe) - the (sparse) details appear here.

On the upside, Revs coach Steve Nicol is feeling good about what he's seeing in preseason...sure, I bet you say that to all the girls....
