WVH Weekly Awards: Rogers Takes Week 7 Award

Time to put week seven in the books here. A few guys had solid weeks but this week one guy jumped out at me more so than anyone else. Columbus Crew’s youngster Robbie Rogers netted two goals to help guide the Crew from behind against San Jose.

Thanks to those two goals, Rogers is my vote for MLS Player of the Week.

Other guys with solid weeks included: Steve Ralston, Blanco, Kyle Beckerman, and Juan Pablo Angel.

Rogers also has a goal of the week nominee from the league. However his goal wasn’t my pick for goal of the week. That nod goes to Kenny Cooper of FC Dallas. His goal just edged out Blanco’s blast in my books because of the slight degree of difficulty of striking the ball at that weird angle on the turf against RSL. Unlike last weekend, the goals were much better looking this weekend.

Judge for yourself!
