Community player ratings report: Vancouver loss reflected in low scores

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

The community player ratings are in, and we've got to say — they don't look kindly on Real Salt Lake in the 1-0 loss to Vancouver Whitecaps. Home losses will do that to you.

Some questions to dwell on as you go about looking over the numbers:

  • Was Alvaro Saborio really as bad as a 4.67 suggests? His finishing was awful, but his hold-up play was approaching sublime.
  • What about Luis Gil? What did he do so badly that led to a 4.68? Is this a case of scapegoating, or was he genuinely pretty awful?
  • While Jamison Olave did get sent off for a second yellow card, was a low rating a result of that? Or was it more about his marking on the goal conceded?

Player Std Dev Average
Nick Rimando 1.27 6.32
Tony Beltran 1.15 6.37
Jamison Olave 1.62 5.06
Elias Vasquez 0.85 7.02
Demar Phillips 1.10 6.43
Kyle Beckerman 1.16 6.33
Luke Mulholland 1.39 5.98
Luis Gil 1.70 4.68
