After each match the contributors to New England Soccer Today will rate the performances of the New England Revolution players who made an appearance on a 1 to 10 scale (1 horrendous, 5 average, 10 perfection). This week Sean Donahue contributed ratings for the Revs 2-1 loss to Seattle.
Matt Reis – 2.5
Could’ve done better on both goals and nearly gave the ball away in one instance where he left his box.
Darrius Barnes – 4
Again Barnes struggled with the pace and creativity of the Seattle wingers. Needs more experience at left back if he’s to be a long term solution.
A.J. Soares – 5
Decent performance despite the Revs struggles with Seattle’s attack.
Ryan Cochrane – 3
Some bad giveaways and never looked comfortable. Gave away free kicks in dangerous spots.
Kevin Alston – 4.5
Unlucky on the Sounders second goal, but added next to nothing to the attack on his ventures forward.
Shalrie Joseph – 5.5
Excellent header that nearly tied the score and generally crisp passing, but didn’t do enough to drive the attack forward.
Pat Phelan – 5
Lucky not to have been ejected early. Phelan put in the effort, but was caught in some reckless challenges.
Ryan Guy – 5
Doesn’t look comfortable using his left foot. Showed some flashes on a few occasions, but didn’t do enough.
Sainey Nyassi – 6
Great finish and used his pace to good effect, but his crosses were poor.
Benny Feilhaber – 4.5
Strong start, but seemed to get frustrated and faded quickly.
Rajko Lekic – 4.5
Decent shot off of Guy’s set-up, but struggled all match to hold up the ball or win the long passes the Revs sent forward.
(sub) Kenny Mansally – 4.5
Failed to make an impact off the bench.
(sub) Zak Boggs – 5
Had one fantastic cross into the box, but the Revs needed more from him.
(sub) Zack Schilawski – 6.5
Very short appearance, but Schilawski looked the Revs most dangerous player with a fantastic shot and good combination play in the final third.
