Keane is joined on this week’s list by teammate Edson Buddle (No. 3), but Seattle goalkeeper Michael Gspurning may have enjoyed the best week of any player, appearing twice in the Top 20 for each of the two games he played. His performances ranked at No. 5 and No. 10, perhaps giving the Austrian a slight leg up on his rival for Goalkeeper of the Year, Jimmy Nielsen (No. 6).
Goalkeepers take up eight of the 20 spots in this edition of the Castrol Top 20, while there are just two defenders (Tony Beltran at No. 7 and Darrius Barnes at No. 20) and a lone rookie as Nick DeLeon makes a final Rookwholesale soccer kitsie of the Year push with a No. 2 finish.
