A road win in LA is a pretty good result for Arena's first game in charge.
The Revs also announced that they've hired Curt Onalfo as technical director. Onalfo is a longtime Arena minion who has been rather unsuccessful in three stints as an MLS head coach over the last 12 years. He hasn't been a front office executive before.
The Revs probably should have won that match something closer to 4-2 as both teams missed their fair share of scoring opportunities. Amazingly, they have only conceded 3 goals in 4 matches under Lapper/Arena. Friedel's Revs allowed in 18 in his last 4 as manager. The Agudelo/L Caciedo midfield duo seems to work surprisingly well and DeJuan Jones has been a revelation at left back.
The Revs are having a bit of a moment in the US Open Cup against NYRB. Agudelo scored very early, but they eventually found themselves down 2-1. Turner saved a PK after a dodgy call. Bunbury equalized in the 85th minute, but Luis Caicedo was sent off in stoppage time. Then the 10-men Revs nabbed another goal in the second half of extra time through Bunbury again, who hit a nice dipping shot over Ryan Meara.
