FC Dallas' Ferreira named MLS MVP

By Steve Goff

Colombian midfielder David Ferreira, whose attacking prowess guided FC Dallas to its first appearance in the MLS Cup, was named the league's most valuable player Friday in Toronto.

Ferreira received 20 percent of the vote, which included players, coaches, general managers and reporters. Los Angeles Galaxy striker Edson Buddle was second at 18.3 percent and San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski, the league's scoring champion, was third at 14.6. Last year's recipient, Los Angeles midfielder-forward Landon Donovan, was fourth at 11.9 and Philadelphia Union forward Sebastien Le Toux fifth at 8.9.

Ferreira, in his second MLS season, had eight goals and 13 assists, second in the league this season. The last Dallas player to win the award was forward Jason Kreis in 1999.

I'm surprised the vote was split up that much...and especially surprised that Buddle got more votes than Wondo. Were some of the votes cast in August?

Is it a straightforward one-vote-per person process or are there secret factors that "weight" it in certain ways?

Not that Ferreira wasn't a deserving winner.

I have a fever.

And the prescription is more cowbell.

Well deserved by Ferreira! With the league being allowed to play as physically aggressive as it was this season, I am very impressed with David's ability to continuously shake-off getting knocked to the ground while constantly delivering excellent results throughout the entire season. Well deserved, and quite an accomplishment.
