It's been a bit since we all got together for player ratings. I apologize in that my work got really crazy with one guy quitting and two of my female co-workers leaving to have babies within two weeks.
I didn't even get a chance to watch the U.S. Open Cup Final victory as I went to work at 5:30 a.m. that day and got home at 10:30 p.m. I still haven't seen the game, which is pretty sad. Anyone know where I can find a replay?
Here's a thread to get caught back up with ratings. Here you will find ballots to rate players from the Open Cup win and the loss to New York on Saturday. You'll also find the community ratings for the win over Real Salt Lake a week ago, in which readers chose Obafemi Martins Man of the Match.
Get your ratings in for the past two games. There are more games coming quickly.
