You voted, now check out the results against Orlando and the season to date.

For the third time in this young season Andre Blake has been player of the match according to the most recent survey. Sure Tranquillo Barnetta's Top 10 SportsCenter game winner handed the Union two points, but while fans were still hugging in the aisles Blake saved a point blank shot and put those two points in his (and the Philadelphia Union's) pocket.

Sunil Gulati already had his share of clout in the soccer world, but after Friday's vote to select a new FIFA Executive Committee representative from North America, Gulati is that much more powerful.

He signed with D.C.

First off, the leader is Chris Wondolowski and unless San Jose starts to fade or the stretch run has someone go made (maybe like another couple 6 goal months?) he should be the MVP. There is no doubt he is the Most Valuable Player in the league right now. Where it gets interesting for Sounders fans is that they have four players that received at least one vote on the 20 ballots.
