    Awards Watch

    Award watch! At the conclusion of the Coppa Tradizione, the following awards will be given out:

    :trophy: Golden/Silver/Bronze Ball (most MOTMs, with ties broken up by combined goals & assists, then goals, then clean sheets, then final round reached, then least games played);

    :trophy: Golden/Silver/Bronze Boot (most goals, with ties broken up by assists and then least games played);

    :trophy: Golden/Silver/Bronze Playmaker, renamed from last season's Golden Creator award (award for players w/ the most assists, with ties broken up by least games played and then goals);

    :trophy: Golden/Silver/Bronze Glove (most clean sheets, with ties broken up by GA per game and then most games played);

    :trophy: Most Proactive User (user who gets in their games the fastest, i.e. whoever has the lowest average of days it took to get a game in)

    To be considered for any award, your team must have qualified for the Coppa Tradizione (sorry Confederation Cup'ers!). This season, there will be just 2 writeups- before the quarterfinals and before the semis. Here's where we stand now:


    Pre-Quarterfinals Awards Watch

    Golden Ball: A bit of a logjam at the top of the Golden Ball race. Currently 4 players have 2 MOTM awards. But breaking those four down based on tiebreakers (combined goals & assists first, goals scored second), the current rankings of those with 2 MOTMs would be: Osvaldo (Sao Paulo) [6 G, 2 A], A. Di Natale (Udinese) [4 G, 4 A], Welliton (Gremio) [4 G, 4 A], and Ze Roberto (Gremio) [0 G, 1 A]. Welliton and Di Natale are practically tied for second there (Di Natale wins out on a further tiebreaker of less games played), while Ze Roberto would likely need another MOTM performance to boost his status. Osvaldo currently leads the race, but he is the only one of the four tied players whose team has been eliminated from the Coppa. Thus, Di Natale and Welliton have to be in the driver's seat here.

    Golden Boot: This race is the only one as of now that's clear cut. Yet there is still plenty of time left for a shake-up as well. E. Vargas (Gremio) currently sits in the Golden Boot pole position with 7 goals so far. Behind him are Osvaldo (Sao Paulo) with 6 goals and L. Traore (Anzhi) with 5 goals. Of those with 4 goals, Welliton (Gremio), A. Di Natale (Udinese), and L. Muriel (Udinese) all are still alive in the Coppa. Yet with Osvaldo already out for the Coppa, this race may already be Vargas' to lose.

    Golden Playmaker: Again, another logjam here for the Golden Playmaker award, as 4 players have 4 assists. With the tiebreakers being least games played and then goals scored, the current rankings would be: A. Di Natale (Udinese) [4 GP, 4 G], S. Eto'o (Anzhi) [4 GP, 3 G], Welliton (Gremio) [5 GP, 4 G], and Ronaldinho (Atl. Mineiro) [5 GP, 0 G]. While another assist from any one of these players would boost them to the top, don't count out Ronaldinho despite already being eliminated from the tournament. If the other three players all continue to play more games and fail to record any more assists, they could fall behind the Brazilian star. Meanwhile, 4 other players still alive in the Coppa have 3 assists and could enter the race with just one more assist.

    Golden Glove: In 4 games, M. ter Stegen (B. M'gladbach) has yet to allow a goal, thus sitting in prime position to win the Golden Glove with 4 clean sheets to date. However, there's competition right behind him, as S. Elana (Lille OSC) has 3 clean sheets. 4 keepers have 2 clean sheets and are therefore currently battling for the Bronze Glove position. Those four would be: Victor (Atl. Mineiro), Dida (Gremio), Rogerio Ceni (Sao Paulo), and M. Vorm (Swansea City). Dida and Vorm are still alive in the Coppa, so don't count them out to get another clean sheet with up to three games left to play.

    Pre-Semifinals Awards Watch

    Golden Ball: Still a logjam, but with few teams remaining, tiebreaking procedures have cleared this race up a bit. Last week we had 4 players tied with 2 MOTM awards, and that's up to 5 this week. Based on tiebreakers (combined goals & assists first, goals scored second), the current rankings would be: E. Vargas (Gremio) [8 G, 3 A], Welliton (Gremio) [5 G, 4 A], A. Di Natale (Udinese) [4 G, 5 A], Osvaldo (Sao Paulo) [6 G, 2 A], and Ze Roberto (Gremio) [0 G, 1 A]. Vargas has a bit of an edge over Welliton as of now, yet with their club still alive, another MOTM would boost them solely into the top Golden Ball position. Di Natale holds the Bronze Ball spot as of now, and he may only drop out if Ze Roberto can muster up another MOTM performance. Don't expect someone with only 1 MOTM as of now to break through here though. Even if someone joins the 2 MOTM grouping, it is highly unlikely they could surpass the current top 3 on tiebreakers.

    Golden Boot: With another goal in the Quarterfinals, this is award already has E. Vargas (Gremio) written all over it. With 8 goals, Vargas is well ahead of any other contenders. The Silver Boot would currently go to Osvaldo (Sao Paulo), who has 6 goals. There is a 3-way tie for third, but the current winner of that tiebreaker, which happens to be Welliton (Gremio), is the only one of the three tied that remains alive in the tournament. Welliton could easily slide up to the Sliver Boot, but the Golden Boot may be just out of reach. At the same time though, don't count out R. Lamah (Swansea City) or A. Carroll (West Ham). Both players have 4 goals and could end up with a trophy of some sort in the end.

    Golden Playmaker: Two players have attempted to break from the pack with assists last week. Of the two players with 5 assists, A. Di Natale (Udinese) has already won the tiebreaker and thus currently sits in line to win the Golden Playmaker award as of now. However, the other player with 5 assists is Fernando (Gremio). Fernando could easily tack on another assist in the next game or two, and that would likely be enough to top the leaderboard in assists. Quite a few players have 4 assists, but currently sitting in the Bronze Playmaker slot would be S. Wright-Phillips (QPR), who's assist in the last round was enough to propel him to this spot. However, three other players with 4 assists remain alive in the tournament. Those three would be Welliton (Gremio), Michu (Swansea City), and N. Dyer (Swansea City). With two other players still in the tournament sitting back at 3 assists, this race remains wide open and may not be decided until after the Final.

    Golden Glove: M. ter Stegen (B. M'gladbach) continued last round to solidify his spot as the Golden Glove winner in this season's Coppa. The only keeper with 4 clean sheets, ter Stegen has allowed just 1 goal in 5 games (and thus would likely win the tiebreaker should anyone tie him). Yet with back-to-back clean sheets in the knockout stage, M. Vorm (Swansea City), now with 3 clean sheets, has quickly moved up into the Silver Glove position and has a chance to even surpass ter Stegen. S. Elana (Lille OSC) also has 3 clean sheets, but even a disastrous game from Vorm likely won't be enough for Elana to move up on tiebreakers. Thus, Elana will likely have to settle for the Bronze Glove at best. Dida (Gremio), who has 2 clean sheets, would likely bump out Elana for the Bronze Glove with another shutout.


    That wraps up this season's Award Watch updates. We will have to see how things play out over the final two rounds to determine exactly who ends up where.

    Almost a sweep for Gremio, but couldn't quite win out the tiebreaker to bring home the Golden Glove award. But 8/13 awards ain't too bad either.
