Twellman to stay in Foxboro - In a surprising development, Taylor Twellman has cried "Uncle," and inked a long-term deal with the New England Revolution. Twellman has made no secret of his desire to gain a transfer to Europe, but the Revolution and MLS have rebuffed all approaches. In recent weeks, the MLS turned down seven-figure transfer bids for Twellman, and also for fellow Rev star, Shalrie Joseph. It seems that Twellman has seen the writing on the wall, and decided to make the best of the situation. Few MLSers have achieved the fan following that Twellman has in the Boston area. This could mean he will never get another chance to play in Europe, and that he may not make his mark on the national team, but Twellman seems to have made his peace with being an MLS star.
