New England's Streak of Misery Continues

Things went from bad to worse for the New England Revolution last night as they were absolutely hammered in Los Angeles by the Galaxy.

The 5-1 loss gave New England its sixth straight defeat, and once again leaves Jay Heaps and company searching for answers.

At this point, what do you even say about this club?

After having such a promising start to the season with a five-game winning streak that started towards the end of April, New England has completely canceled all of that out with this horrendous streak in the opposite direction.

The formula is pretty simple: Score goals and you give yourself a chance to win. But how could the Revolution possibly when games when it struggles so often to muster up a goal?

New England has managed only three goals during the six-game skid, so it's not hard to see why the results have went against them.

For historical purposes, it's important to note that the Revolution hasn't experienced a streak like this since 2001. So, yeah -- this is a pretty significant problem.

A meeting with FC Dallas is up next on Saturday, which is certainly winnable.

But New England simply doesn't have a chance if it can't find a consistent attack. Oh, and giving up five goals like they did to a surging LA team won't help, either.

The good news for the Revolution is that despite its awful play as of late, it still remains in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.

The bad news? It won't be there for long if this recent trend continues.
