Welcome to Revcetera
Revcetera is a blog written by Frank Truscott, a long-time soccer fan who has a particular interest in the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer. This site is in no way affiliated with, nor endorsed by, the Revolution. Some of my readers will take exception to the optimistic view that will be portrayed here. I've been a fan of the Revs for a long-time and have seen good and bad teams. But most importantly, I've been a negative fan and I've been a positive fan, and I have found that being happy is more enjoyable than being miserable. Could the Revs do some things better, off and on the field? Yes, most certainly they could. But I can't control that. I may have an opinion, and I may share it, but it's not going to change one thing. What I can control is how I enjoy the games and following the team. My time is too precious to waste making myself miserable over what should be entertainment. My approach will be, for the most part, one of analysis and reasoned, rational commentary on both the soccer and business sides of the Revolution. This will necessarily, from time-to-time, lead to discussion of MLS-related topics, and occasionally even topics from around the world of soccer. I am not a journalist and do not have sources in the business, so do not expect to find breaking news here. There are a lot of good soccer writers out there who can get you this inside information. One thing that I've been doing for years, for my own amusement, is tracking Revolution goal scorers in all official competitions. It is available here at http://revcetera.com/scorers.html. I update it after each game. It's an easy way to see how our current players rank amongst our historic favorites. I hope you enjoy the blog and that it might become a place for reasoned discussion of all things Revolution.
