New England Get Revenge for MLS Cup defeat

SJ 763508 New England Get Revenge for MLS Cup defeat Sharlie Joseph/From MLSnet

Shalrie Joseph is a consummate professional. Despite being locked in a contract dispute with MLS who refused to sell him to Celtic when the league was offered £ 2 million during the last transfer window he continues to play hard. The contract dispute led Revolution Coach Steve Nicol to strip Joseph of his captain’s armband, but yet Joseph keeps plugging along. His goal today gained New England a measure of revenge for last year’s MLS Cup final defeat to Houston, by a 1-0 scoreline. Speaking of Nicol, he will be a guest commentator during ESPN’s coverage of the Champions League Final this Wednesday.
Elsewhere Juan Pablo Angel scored a goal and contributed two assists as Red Bull New York defeated Columbus 4-0 in front of yet another small crowd (about 10,000 fans) at Giants Stadium. Colorado and Kansas City drew 1-1 in front of close to 15,000 fans at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Jimmy Conrad who could be named the new US Captain under Bob Bradley returned from injury for Kansas City but could only manage to play in the first half.

    Joseph is a player who I believe is skilled enough to have a major impact in Europe. I hope he gets the opportunity.
