Twellman Out

Twellman will be sidelined for the remainder of the season, with concussion related complications. The Revs sent out a press release yesterday announcing that Twellman's season would be coming to an end.

It has been a tough year for the teams all-time leading goal scorer. He went through some personal issues in the off-season, and then missed the first half of the season with a knee injury. Twellman has only been a few goals away from reaching the 100 goal milestone, but will have to wait until next year possibly to join the elite group.

This latest set back will keep the star striker from trying to help his team reach a fourth straight MLS cup, and fifth in 7 years.

Taylor will be 29 next season, and questions of his return to the club will surely resurface again this off season, as they have in the recent past. With an injury plagued season, it may be hard for him to attract the interest he wants from European clubs. There is no doubting his quality in finishing here in this league still. He was still an effective goal scorer when on the field. We will follow his story to see if he will be back for an 8th season with the Revs.
