SBI MLS Player of the Week: Fredy Montero

Playing in front of a hostile crowd at Jeld-Wen Field, Fredy Montero stepped up on multiple occasions to help his Seattle Sounders erase deficits. His two goals were key in helping the Sounders take down arch-rival Portland on Sunday, which is why Montero was an easy pick for this week's SBI MLS Player of the Week honors.

Montero beat out David Beckham, who had his own stellar performance with a goal and assist in Los Angeles' win against Chicago, as well as Dwayne DeRosario, who scored the lone goal in D.C. United's win against New York.

Montero hit a beautiful free-kick goal, then netted a late equalizer to make the score 2-2 before Osvaldo Alonso's game-winning penalty kick.

What did you think of Montero's performance? Who got your vote for this week's top honors?

    Roll on Columvia, roll on!

  2. SoccerInATL says:

    must be the power of the roberto baggio rat tail

  3. Erik says:

    Has he had that cast on his entire MLS career?

  4. Aaron says:

    Not to mention that he was inches away from a hat-trick off of that last header… good save by Perkins.

  5. John says:

    New haircut. Same dead arm.

  6. A wise man once says:

    I hate his new rat tail.

  7. Mikey says:

    The Sounders back line was the Timbers MVP.

    Fyi to first poster: it’s Colombia. Actual common American mistake though, happens all the time :-)

  8. JimmyJoe says:

    If you’re referring to the river, it’s actually Columbia. Colombia is the South American country.

  9. swoopy says:

    how can you hate his rat tail? it’s perfect for him. absolutely perfect.

  10. bmvaughn says:

    Nope, just since April… oh and it’s off now, that’s a stock photo.

  11. Fred Garvin says:

    SSFC traveling fans deserve players of the week

  12. KevinL says:

    How about Tony Beltran for shutting down Brek Shea?

  13. no says:

    I thought it was cute when Timbers fans were chanting NO MEANS NO in reference to a three year old false accusation. I understand its easy to hate Montero but I was hoping they could be a little more original than that.

  14. Cal says:

    I was going for Woody Guthrie, but why let a typo run a good thing?

  15. Cal says:

    That would be “ruin”… damn ipad.

  16. John Frank says:

    Oh no, why be original when we can remind him that he got accused of rape?
    Or why be original when we can remind the Sounders than they are the first team in history to start TWO forwards who were BOTH accused of rape at the SAME time.


  17. JesseMT says:


  18. uh says:

    Because the accusation wasn’t exactly legitimate. In fact, I am now accusing you of rape John Frank. No means no! See?

  19. Jeremy says:

    No worries. We will just continue to remind you of our decades of dominance over you. Let us know when you actually win something, thanks buddy. I hope you have a lovely day in Portscum today!

  20. vincente says:

    Montero’s free kick was inch perfect (and had to be), as was Alonso’s PK. Perkins was man of the match, in many ways.

  21. dundasfc says:

    Take away Perkins and Tyson Wahl and you have a 6-0 match result.

  22. Jeremy says:

    If the wall would have jumped at all, it would have been blocked. It looked like 2 of the Portscum players in the wall didn’t even move and maybe even ducked a little bit. This is the big leagues PTFC, time to man up.

  23. Emerald_City_Jason says:

    Good for Fredy. Hope it gets him rolling, b/c we need the help until we sign someone.

  24. Mikey says:

    John Frank raped my hopes and dreams

  25. Mikey says:

    I love the new windows they put in Jeld-Wen in the Timbers wall

  26. Mikey says:

    Dying laughing at the #classymullanhate hashtag on twitter right now…

  27. Kejsare says:

    As far as I know, there were dropped charges. Which means charges were brought, and then dropped. It was allegations that never made it to court. In the justice system this means nothing conclusive was made.

  28. BWH says:

    Public perception is not defined by the court system.

  29. Adam G says:

    +1 he was the best player on the field in RSL V FC Dallas. Unfortunately the formula for player of the week is take whoever scored two goals and give it to them.
