Crew heads to Utah without injured Meram, Anor, Gruenebaum

The past two weeks, the Columbus Crew team has come alive in all fronts in winning by scores of 2-0 twice.

Two of the reasons for their success has been the play of Bernardo Anor and Justin Meram, who have been getting the ball to scorer Federico Higuain.

After Thursday’s practice, head coach Robert Warzycha said that neither would make the trip to Real Salt Lake due to injuries suffered last weekend vs. Toronto FC.

Also not making the trip west is goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum.

Meram suffered a back injury after a hard fall and Anor is dealing with fatigue issues and soreness in his right hamstring.

Crew dominates Toronto FC, 2-0 to win Trillium Cup; Higuain scores twice again to put team back in playoff hunt

A few weeks ago, the Columbus Crew were 10 points out of playoff contention and the fans wanted the management to fire head coach Robert Warzycha.

Now after a couple of shutout victories over New York and Toronto FC, the fans are happy again and the team is back in the playoff hunt.

The reason for the turnaround is the play of Federico Higuain, who the past two seasons is the new Guillermo Barros Schelotto.

Higuain can score from anywhere on the field if his teammates give him the ball. Teams have to account for his whereabouts at all time. Playing with the Crew’s other scoring threat Dominic Oduro, the field opens up for goals to be scored.

Higuain, the 28-year-old Argentinian as the team’s captain has taken over the last few games by scoring four goals and has given Crew fans a hope for the playoffs.

The Crew with 29 points, trail only New England and Chicago for the final playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.

Saturday’s win allowed the Crew to win their fifth Trillium Cup in six years in the rivalry with Toronto FC.

The triumph also allowed Warzycha to tie his former coach, Tom Fitzgerald (1996-2001) at 70 wins as a Crew head coach. The 70th win makes Warzycha one of only 14 MLS coaches to achieve the plateau and four are active: Sigi Schmid (Seattle), Jason Kreis (Real Salt Lake), Bruce Arena (LA Galaxy) and Dominic Kinnear (Houston).

LA Galaxy’s Gonzalez top MLS defender

Omar Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Galaxy is tough to get past with the soccer ball. The reason is, at 6’5, he is not easy to move past by kicking the ball or using the head or body.

With his toughness in defending, it makes sense that he has been voted the 2011 Major League Soccer Defender of the Year.

The 23-year-old was a 2009 3rd round pick of the Galaxy in the MLS SuperDraft.

Gonzalez has dual citizenship of Mexico and the United States.

Gonzalez received 94.5 of the vote from club officials, media and players groups. Finishing second was Jamison Olave of Real Salt Lake who finished with 50.7.

The percentage totals are from all the votes added together.
