Community player ratings results: Sunny easily man of the match against Seattle Sounders

MLS: Seattle Sounders FC at Real Salt Lake Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

Real Salt Lake's 2-1 win over Seattle Sounders prompted some good reviews of a still-early team. You receive no extra points for guessing the man of the match, though.

This week, it was Sunny, who is quickly shaping up to be one of the biggest MLS signings of the offseason. Obviously, that might not remain the case, but these early signs are overwhelmingly positive.

Take a look at the player ratings — where do you disagree? Are you disappointed at the averages? Should someone have been lower? Should Sunny have received a 9 or higher?

RSL vs. Seattle ratings (community | ours)

This time, I've added a comparison to Randal Serr's player ratings. Perhaps unsurprisingly, they're a very good judge of what the community is feeling — and a good chunk of the ratings came on Sunday, before he was posted, largely eliminating a thought that the community is parroting his reading of the game.

The only big differences this week? Yura Movsisyan (difference: 0.8) and Jordan Allen (0.5) — everyone else is within 0.4 of our decisions. Interesting, huh?

  • Nick Rimando: 6.9 | 6.5
  • Tony Beltran: 6.7 | 6.5
  • Jamison Olave: 7.1 | 7.0
  • Aaron Maund: 6.4 | 6.0
  • Chris Wingert: 6.4 | 6.0
  • Kyle Beckerman: 6.5 | 6.5
  • Sunny: 8.2 | 8.0
  • Jordan Allen: 6.6 | 6.0
  • Joao Plata: 7.0 | 7.0
  • Yura Movsisyan: 6.3 | 5.5
  • Burrito Martinez: 7.4 | 7.5

Average: 6.9
