Wondomania Sweeps MLS Wednesday Night

Kerosene on his MVP campaign? You bet. (Still not quite there in TSG’s book…top five though).

At $48,000 per year, San Jose Earthquakes forward-striker Chris Wondolowski just has his coming out party this year….at the spry age of 27.

Buck Shaw Stadium in Santa Clara last night played the stage to Wondo’s latest exploits. A hat trick against Chivas in much less than 90 minutes of work.

$48K per? 17 of his team’s 33 goals?

You certainly earn a post on TSG with the highlight video that the San Jose Earthquakes put out quickly on YouTube for you last evening. Well played.

After the page break, post game comments from Wondo who earlier in the day said he would vote for Edson Buddle for MVP.

    Wondo for USA striker at the Gold Cup in 2011!

      Good be a nifty option off the bench maybe, but he sort of plays the wandering forward midfield role a la Dempsey, no?


  2. He’s a super elusive striker. He disappears and reappears, loses defenders easily and is hard to keep track of. Quality finisher, but doesn’t particularly possess any incredible skill (such as speed or ball skills). It would be awesome to see him paired with Altidore IF (and only if) Altidore can learn how to play as a holding striker rather than trying to run at people every time he gets the ball.

    Could be interesting Gold Cup choice considering he would likely be there with some other up and comers, maybe paired off with Buddle.
