Returns for his second go-round with Revolution after a one-year absence in which he was selected by Seattle in the Expansion Draft, traded to New York and later signed with Lincoln City of England’s League Two … his long strides, separation ability and speed put immense pressure on outside midfielders and defenders ... plays as a striker for the Bermuda National Team, but features on the left side of the midfield for the Revs … can whip crosses in from anywhere on the wing or in traffic … four of his eight career regular-season goals have counted as game-winners ... his last nine MLS goals overall (including MLS Cup Playoffs and SuperLiga) have come after the 72nd minute.

2009: Selected by Seattle Sounders FC in the 2008 MLS Expansion draft from the Revolution and was later traded to the New York Red Bulls in exchange for allocation money. Made eight appearances with the Red Bulls, which included six starts. Did not score any goals, but created an own goal against the Revolution (March 28) in a 1-1 draw at Giants Stadium. Released by New York in the summer, and signed with Lincoln City of England’s League Two, where he made five appearances before parting ways with the club.

2008: Made 23 regular-season appearances, including 18 starts, and 31 total appearances including U.S. Open Cup, SuperLiga 2008 and CONCACAF Champions League. Scored two goals and added three assists in MLS regular-season action. Scored the lone goal in the Revs’ 1-0 victory at FC Dallas (April 24), scoring on a rare long-range, right-footed shot in the 72nd minute. Collected assists on Taylor Twellman’s goals against D.C. (Aug. 20) and against LA (Aug. 30) . Scored the third goal in New England’s 4-0 win over Chivas USA (Sept. 11).

Suffered a right hamstring strain at Colorado (Sept. 20) and missed the Revs’ match against Columbus (Sept. 27).

Did not play in the MLS Cup Playoffs after receiving an additional two-game suspension for the tackle. Appeared in all five SuperLiga matches, and made one start. Scored the game-winning penalty kick in stoppage time against Pachuca (July 16). Also made two appearances in the U.S. Open Cup (Crystal Palace Baltimore on July 8 and at D.C. United on Aug. 12).

2007: Started 26 games – and appeared in 29 total games – on the left wing after missing the season opener because of injury. Scored two goals and added a career-high six assists. Established career highs in almost every statistical category, including appearances, starts, minutes (2,210), assists, shots (36), shots on goal (12) and fouls suffered (41). Earned his first assist of the season against Chicago on May 6. Set up Pat Noonan’s game-winning goal against Kansas City on Aug. 2 with a cross from the left wing to Taylor Twellman on the far post.

Netted the game-winning goal against Colorado on Sept. 29 in the 88th minute in the 1-0 victory. Established new postseason career highs, starting and playing all 90 minutes in each of the Revs’ four postseason games. Made his first-career start at MLS Cup when he lined up for the opening kick against Houston on Nov. 18.

2006: After missing the first four months of the season while rehabbing his left knee from off-season surgery, appeared in 10 of the final 11 matches, mainly as a second-half substitute on the left wing. Started two of the final three games on the left side of the midfield. Scored his first goal of 2006 in the final regular-season game of the year - the game-winning goal in the 88th minute against Columbus on Oct. 14 to secure second place in the Eastern Conference and home-field advantage in the first round of the MLS Cup Playoffs. Appeared in all four postseason games, assisting on Taylor Twellman's goal in the 113th minute in MLS Cup 2006.
