Following his return to first team action for the first time this season, New England Revolution forward Taylor Twellman is obviously glad to be back.
Speaking to reporters after his return to MLS after eight months and his team's 2-1 victory over arch rivals DC, United Twellman said, “I don’t know. It’s a little emotional, just in the sense it’s been a long haul. It’s been eight months of trying to guess what’s going on.
“Just thank God I figured it out. Now, granted, I didn’t expect to play 70 minutes tonight and get punched in the face right away.
“So we’ll see; it’s obviously a good test. We’ll see how I feel on tomorrow and Monday, it’s obviously very big.
"This team’s needed a pick-me-up a little bit. And that’s been the hardest part – watching them.
“Whether it’s just, like I said, being a nuisance in the box, running into people, just kind of helping the team do what, you know, they need to do.
“Obviously, when I came on, I think it helped Shalrie (Joseph) play his natural position. He scored a great goal, and (Steve) Ralston’s the best player in the league in my opinion, so he did his job. So I think it just helps everyone be able to do their own job and not try to do something else. So it’s fun, I’m just glad I’m a part of it.”
