- Ante Razov, Guillermo Barros Schelotto, Week 15, Weekly Awards
After a week off from handing out awards, we are fully back from vacation now as it is time to once again hand out awards to the week’s best. There wasn’t as many games to pick from this week as it was a holiday weekend that saw a couple clubs off in other competitions and what not.
A few good choices for player of the week but none stood out more to me when I looked at everything like Columbus Crew midfielder Guillermo Barros Schelotto. The Argentine’s two assists proved to be enough to get the Crew back in their game with Chicago from a 2-0 hole. Both passes to Emmanuel Ekpo and Steven Lenhart were spot on and allowed the Crew to steal a point late from the visiting Fire.
A lot of people don’t realize just how good he is until he makes passes like those two.
So to me, it was Schelotto’s week by far over everyone, including the two goals from New England’s Adam Cristman (who will more than likely take home the award this week).
Goal of the week was pretty easy to figure out for me as well this time around. A few late heroics were in the mix. I loved the timely headers by Cristman and Abe Thompson, as well as the quick feet of Lenhart, and the four strikes by four different Rapids against New York.
But to me the best strike was a late free kick by Chivas USA’s Ante Razov. Upon first glance I said “yup, goal of the week right there, no doubt about it.” I think you all will see why.
