  • 2009 Week 3, Claudio Lopez, Freddie Ljungberg, Goal of the Week, Luciano Emilio, Marco Pappa, Omar Gonzalez, Sainey Nyassi

You know looking at this weekends list of goals, there weren’t that many good ones. A lot of easy tap in for some guys and nothing that really stood out. For me I think the league dropped the ball on their list of nominations by not putting Seattle’s Freddie Ljungberg’s goal up for vote. Maybe they wanted a different club to get the nod for once this season or something.

Anyways the five they have are decent, the best could be Claudio Lopez’s goal against San Jose purely on the ball sent to Lopez was a masterful cross from Herculez Gomez. Though out of the bunch New England’s Saniey Nyassi’s strike on Dallas was something special.

Here are my favorite goals of the week. Feel free to say which one you thought was the best.

Claudio Lopez:

Marco Pappa:

Luciano Emilio:

Omar Gonzalez:

Freddie Ljungberg:

Sainey Nyassi:

    What? No mention of Conor Casey's hatrick and no mention of his especially cheeky third goal? His third is not the goal of the week, but should be a contender.

    The cheeky third goal was good, yes, but the Galaxy defense had a lot to do with his three goals.

    I was pretty surprised too that Ljungberg didn't get a nod. I didn't enjoy watching it exactly but have to admit he worked the give an go to perfection. Nyassi's goal was the best of the rest.
