After a breakout 2019 season, do the New England Revolution have enough talent to win the 2020 MLS Cup?
There are plenty of reasons to be hopeful of a strong campaign entering Saturday afternoon's season opener versus the Montreal Impact. One of them is the three-headed monster leading the Revolution attack -- Gustavo Bou, Carles Gil and Adam Buksa.
Buksa arrived over the offseason for the second-largest transfer fee in club history (around $4 million, per reports). His addition gives the Revolution three designated players (the max for every MLS roster). Buksa stands 6-foot-3, making him dangerous in the air and a difficult player for opposing center backs to defend.
Bou joined the Revolution in July of last season and instantly made an impact with a goal in his debut against the Vancouver Whitecaps. He scored nine goals in 14 league games to help lead the Revs back to the MLS playoffs for the first time since 2015.
