New England Revolution 1999
1999 Club by Club
Prior to the 1999 season, the Revolution acquired John Harkes, Giovanni Savarese and Dan Calichman to help boost the team’s bid to return to the playoffs. Walter Zenga continued as player/coach, and the team made several acquisitions in mid-season – including Mario Gori, Leonel Alvarez and Jeff Baicher – but the team was unable to come together and make a run into the postseason. For the second consecutive year, the Revs made a late-season coaching change as Zenga was relieved of his playing and coaching duties and replaced by Steve Nicol for the team’s final two matches. For the second time in four years, Foxboro Stadium hosted MLS Cup.
