The fans voted, and Lee Nguyen's impressive form during the Revs playoff push in October earned him the MLS honor. Okay, so that's not the trophy you get for winning player of the month (pretty sure that's the Midnight Riders supporters "Man of the Year" award), but Lee Nguyen is going to have to find some room on that crowded 2014 trophy shelf for more awards. As if Nguyen needed anything else on his 2014 MLS MVP candidate resume, he can now add October 2014 Player of the Month honor to an already staggering list of accomplishments this season.

Lee Nguyen propelled the Revolution to a 1-0 win in their season finale. The playoffs beckon to the New England Revolution, and they're heading into them in fine form. Toronto FC was the last victim of the regular season, falling 1-0 to a rampaging Revs side that really should have won by far more. Despite a glut of scoring chances (especially in the second half), only one goal was scored, and that by team MVP Lee Nguyen, who padded his stats to 18 goals on the season. Toronto hit the crossbar and had several chances, but it was a Revolution-dominated match through and through. Nguyen's...
