Lee Nguyen's impressive campaign has put him on the shortlist for MVP, while strong performances from Jermaine Jones and Charlie Davies were enough to to put a total of three Revolution players on theleague's listoffinalists for regular season honors.
Joint leaders at every position highlight the week.
Our overall leader is this round's leader, as In It Toux Wynne It earned 90 points. Landon Donovan (LA, $12.0) wore the armband and led the way with 14 points with an assist. Both Robbie Keane (LA, $11.8) and Obafemi Martins (SEA, $9.7) earned 12 points while scoring two goals.

In It Toux Wynne It is still the leader overall.

Akindele is coming classy as hell with hat tricks.
Despite having just 10 players in the starting lineup play, RayoVallecano led us all with 73 points this round. The fourth club in Madrid was led by Fabian Castillo's (DAL, $6.6) 2 goals, 1 assist, and 16 points.

Robbie Keane (LA, $11.0) was captained and scored 52 points over two games with 3 goals and 2 assists. Far behind him were three players with 7 points each -- Toronto teammates Jermain Defoe ($11.
Rep. of Ireland captain Robbie Keane enhanced his chances of picking up MLS MVP with his 18th and 19th goals of the season against Toronto FC last night, his first a neatly right footed finish from close range, his second a brilliant volley and a prime contender for goal of the month as LA Galaxy swatted Toronto FC 3-0.
Galaxy players led at every position this round, and otherwise were dominating the leaderboard. Before we get to that, we recognize both the round leader and overall leader, In It Toux Wynne It, who scored 161 points. Landon Donovan (LA, $11.4) wore the armband and scored 50 points, with two goals and an assist over two matches.
Robbie Keane is certainly enjoying himself in MLS and judging by this 'assist' even the Irishman's mistakes end up reaping rewards.
Here, an appalling airshot ends up setting up Keane's LA Galaxy team-mateMarcelo Sarvas who fired home. Either this was the cleverest assist in the history of football (it wasn't) or a very amusing bit of luck.
The Portland Timbers were hoping to carry over momentum from previous solid efforts on the road and their two match winning streak into an afternoon affair with the Los Angeles Galaxy back on August 2, and a Diego Valeri goal in the 15th minute gave them hope for another win. Unfortunately, a Galaxy side that is finding their tempo and talent put them under siege and pulled away for a 3 to 1 victory.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — It's been a good week to be Benny Feilhaber.
The 29-year-old midfielder followed up his midweek dominance over the Columbus Crew with a marvelous free kick in a 2-1 victory over the LA Galaxy Saturday to help Sporting Kansas City see its unbeaten streak move to six matches.
The Galaxy cleanly beat the Revs, 5 to 1, in a game where two Galaxy players – Gyasi Zardes and Robbie Keane – were simply playing at a higher level than he rest of the players on the field. The fact that they each scored two goals, with Keane assisting brilliantly on both of Zardes' goals, is the most obvious indicator.

OTF's Alex White draws some mixed conclusions after the Fire's latest result...
L.A. came to Chicago to play a game with everything on the line, filled with players at the top of their game and a shot at another championship on the line for two of the best-run organizations in the sport.
Another defensive mistake cost them points at home but the Fire didn't seem too broken up about this one. Chris Ritter's errant pass led to a 74th minute game tying goal and a draw against the Los Angeles Galaxy. A shift to a formation that included dual holding midfielders and the return of Gonzalo Segares to the starting line up resulted in the team's best defensive effort in some time.
The reverberations from Jurgen Klinsman's decision that Landon Donovan was somehow not one of the best 23 American soccer player on the planet continue, but on Sunday night Donovan did his talking on the pitch, as he became the all-time scorer in Major League Soccer.
Donovan had been tied at 134 goals with Jeff Cunningham on the all-time goalscoring list all season.
How does Robbie Keane like his chips? With a side-serving of delicious nutmeg...
Nicely done, that man.
For the record, Keane's goal came as Galaxy ran out 0-3 winners over Chivas, keeping there four-game winning streak alive and sent them within two points of Seattle Sounders at the summit of the MLS Western Conference table.
While Tim Cahill was busy delivering tackles and hitting passes to teammates on Wednesday, ESPN was busy giving him some recognition.
Cahill was named the winner of the 2014 MLS Best Athlete award at the ESPYS in Los Angeles on Wednesday night for his sterling 2013 season. Cahill led the New York Red Bulls last year to a historic Supporters' Shield win last year, scoring 11 goals and adding five assists while also earning spots in the MLS All-Star Team and MLS Best XI.

The United States gets one more friendly in before the end of 2014. This one isn't conveniently timed for...well for anyone really, but we might as well enjoy it rather than do work or whatever this afternoon.
