New England head coach and Liverpool legend Steve Nicol believes that if they get their attitude right they can lift the elusive MLS Cup this season.

Asked if the Revs could turn it around this season on American Soccer News this week, Nicol replied: “This is the only real place I’ve played where you did a playoff system, the rest has been a whole season.

"But yeah, you’re not always at your best and on some occasions the team that wins the title is sometimes the team that shows more when they’re not at their best than anything else. When you’re not at your best, if you can fight and struggle and do all the rotten jobs and get a victory – that’s what it’s about when you’re not at your best.”

New England Revolution face Chicago Fire in the first of the two-leg semis next week.
