Despite the Revs’ three week break, there has not been a lack of action around the team, especially in the last week. New England sits in first place, and hold a lot of buzz around Boston sports at the moment. With the Bruins and Celtics now eliminated, more focus shifts to Gillette Stadium.
Many believe the Revolution require a rebrand, they’re the only original team to hold onto their logo to this point. On Thursday afternoon, they received a spark for their wish. A leaked image surfaced throughout Twitter, and quickly became a massive talking point across the league. The designer’s website was not privated as intended, so the logo was free to the public eye. This new logo contains a white circle, with a white R being slashed through diagonally by a sash. The logo has seen mixed reviews, some fans like the rebrand, while others think it lacks identity.
The logo leak wasn’t the only news around the Revs, as a new potential transfer target has been identified. The target goes by Juanmi, a Spanish forward of 28 years old. He has really fallen out of form as of late, but has showed his potential in the past. He played a role for Southampton in the Premier League, before transferring to Real Sociedad. He scored 24 times there from 2016-2019. His next move was to Real Betis, where he has yet to find his feet. He’s notched just three goals in his two years with the club.
Many are speculating that Revs winger Tajon Buchanan could be headed out, making way for Juanmi. Buchanan is a highly rated young star in the making for Canada, and continues to prove himself. Italian giants Juventus have shown interest, and the Revolution may be expecting a large price tag to let him go. Tajon is an extremely promising talent, so it’s definitely something to keep an eye on
While the Revolution continue their training in their time off, the international breaks nears its close. MLS will get back into action on Saturday with an Austin FC and Sporting Kansas City matchup. New England’s next match will be a visit to Red Bull Arena to face off with New York City FC.
