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.

Still time for them to blow this.

Friedel was fired, and the Revs haven't lost in the five games since. Impressive.

Next up is Orlando City away in the fifth round of the Open Cup. Last year, the Revs lost to the OG Lions (Louisville) in the fourth round.
