Player Profile: Pat Noonan and Revolution team notes
FOXBORO, MA. – Forward Pat Noonan’s play with the Revolution in 2004 not only earned him the Budweiser Scoring Champion award, but also earned him training time with Chelsea F.C. in England, arguably the best team in the world at the moment. In just his second season as a pro, Noonan led the league in scoring with 11 goals and 8 assists for 30 points, after a rookie season in which he scored 10 goals to go with 7 assists for 27 points and finished second in Rookie of the Year voting. Noonan became the only player in Revolution history to score two hat tricks as a Rev, getting 3 goals in a late come from behind victory against Kansas City on June 2, 2004 and 3 goals in the final game of the regular season in 2003 in a 5-2 victory against the Metrostars. Noonan also earned a spot on the East All-Star team this year.

Noonan was drafted by the Revolution out of Indiana University, were he had a very successful four years. “Obviously it was a great experience, a good four years for me,” Noonan said. “We got a national championship, which was obviously the main goal. All those individual honors are always nice to have on the side, but it’s a lot more fun to have a great team surrounding you and that is what we had there.” Noonan was a Missouri Athletic Club Hermann Trophy runner-up in his final year at Indiana, a first-team All-American, Big Ten Player of the Year, an All-Big Ten first team selection, one of 15 finalists for the Hermann Trophy and Runner-up for the Missouri Athletic Club's Player of the Year in his junior year. His sophomore year he was a Second-team All-American, an All-Big Ten first team selection, an All-Region selection and led the team in scoring with 28 points on 11 goals and six assists after finishing his freshman year a Soccer America Collegiate All-Freshman team selection and a starter in all 24 games.

Noonan was then drafted by the Revolution, who planned to use him as a wide midfielder, but offensive injuries soon gave him a chance up top. Much of Noonan’s success his first year came against the Metrostars, with 7 of his 10 regular season goals coming against them, as well as both of his playoff goals. This season Noonan had two goals and two assists against the Metrostars. Noonan doesn’t know what to attribute his success against the Revolution’s biggest rivals to. “Obviously they have a good squad and a good 11 out there all the time,” Noonan explained, “so I don’t know if it is just luck or being in the right place at the right time. I have had success against them in most of the games and hopefully I can spread that success with other teams in the league, but I couldn’t attribute it to one thing.”

Noonan’s move to New England was eased by the fact that fellow St. Louis natives Steve Ralston, Taylor Twellman and Brian Kamler (now with ReAL Salt Lake) were already with the team. “It was great coming in having Taylor here, who I grew up with, and Ralston and Kamler obviously to talk St. Louis and talk the hot spots or where we like to go and all that good stuff,” said Noonan. “It is good having something in common with guys when you are new to a team.”

Noonan earned a call-up to the U.S. National team for his performances and earned his first international appearance on March 13th against Haiti. “It was a good experience. It was good to get it in early in my career and get out there and get a feel for that type of speed of play and a level of great ability and skill. I thought I did well with the chances I had and hopefully I will get a chance again.”

Noonan did not impress Chelsea enough from his short time training with them to earn a contract, however, he may have helped bring their attention to MLS. The latest rumor is Chelsea is interested in buying an MLS franchise, San Jose, in particular, which could only mean good things for the league.

Next year Noonan will pair up top again with his long time friend Taylor Twellman and will look to lead the Revs to MLS Cup 2005.

Other Revolution notes:
According to, Goalkeeper Adin Brown has signed a three year deal with Aalesunds FK of the Norweigan Premier League. Brown was the Revolutions starting ‘keeper, when healthy, from 2002 through 2004. In 2004 he suffered from multiple concussions and missed the majority of the season, while back-up Matt Reis took over and performed well enough to keep the starting position.

Midfielder Richie Baker left the Revs to sign with his former club Shelbourne of Ireland. Baker saw some time due to injuries, but couldn’t break into the Revolution starting line-up.

Defender Steve Howey was let go to pursue options in England. Howey played a few games before going down with a season ending injury and never looked to be up to the speed of play in MLS.
