  1. “Bob Kraft states the Revs are looking for a home in Boston for a record 25th year”

    • as more and more teams move into their named cities, we’ll be the outlier. this ownership group is all-in on chester. will Chester hurt the team’s acceptance by Philadelphia as success continues? had the Union not been so easily bounced out of the playoffs, i’d have been curious if they could’ve gotten a lot more eyes and ears this season. the building color lights and other “HEY! HEY!” attention grabbers were fleeting.

      • Chester’s a hell of a lot closer to Philly than Foxboro is to Boston (10 minute drive compared to 45 minutes). Plus the Union are playing in a soccer specific stadium compared with the Revs playing in a football stadium with artificial turf.

  2. Glad to see Tanner is going to be targetting the 10 position for new signings. IMO the Union’s biggest weakness was the lack of a playmaker in non transition situations. Aaronson might be that player in a few years, but he wasn’t there quite yet in 2020, and when he is he’ll be playing in Europe somewhere.

    We’re also going to need much better depth with the Concacaf Champions league, so no reason to worry about Fontana and other homegrowns getting minutes somewhere.
