Gspurning gathers against tonight’s opponent RSL

The MLS authoritative index on player performance based on statistics has some good news for Major League Soccer’s European contingent.

LA Galaxy’s Robbie Keane will probably value his two goal haul that eased his side through to the Western Conference final more, but he has emerged top of the table.

The Irishman scored 854 points per 90 minutes. The top goalkeeper was Sounders FC ‘s Austrian shot stopper, Mike Gspurning who finished 12 with 695 points.

He wasn’t the top Sounder however. That honour fell to Fredy Montero who came in seventh with 728 points.

Chris Wondolowski came in second with 836 points and the top defender was Sporting Kansas City’s Matt Besler in 25th place with 640 points.

Portland’s top player was Kris Boyd in 15th place, one behind another Sounder Eddie Johnson. They can take some credit for 16th placed Troy Perkins who left for Montreal Impact in the course of the season.

The highest finishing Whitecap was Joe Cannon in 60th with 546 points. Their top outfielder was Captain Jay DeMerit in 79th with 523 points.
