Next month, Noonan's going to be named Player Of The Year and then he'll begin working on his campaign to become the Player Of The Decade. I've been given the honor of writing Noonan's acceptance speech, too. Here it goes: "First off, I'd like to thank all the fans of the New England Revolution and coach Stevie NICHOLS. Secondly, I'd like to thank Bob Bradley and the MetroStars, for they truly are my 8itches.." Seriously: Congrats, Pat!! Sch-weet. PAT NOONAN NAMED MLS PLAYER OF THE MONTH Rookie Takes Second Major Honor of the Week Coming off Hat Trick Performance Versus MetroStars FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - New England Revolution rookie forward Pat Noonan was named MLS Player of the Month by the Professional Soccer Reporters Association (PSRA) for the Month of October. Noonan scored in three of the Revolution's four games in October. He is tied for ninth in scoring in MLS with 27 points (10 goals, 7 assists) and is second in the league in scoring among rookies. Yesterday, Noonan was named MLS Player of the Week for Week 30 of the MLS season after registering his first career hat trick in the Revolution's 5-2 victory over the MetroStars on Saturday, October 25. The Revolution won their last five matches of the 2003 MLS regular season and are unbeaten in their last seven heading into the MLS Cup Playoffs, which begin this coming weekend. Noonan notched the Revs' first goal against the Metros in the 41st minute of Saturday's game. He took a pass from Steve Ralston at the top of the penalty area and struck a low, left-footed shot that skimmed between the legs of MetroStars goalkeeper Paul Grafer. Noonan scored his second goal of the contest in the 51st minute. Dario Fabbro played a bending ball into the area from right flank which deflected off of defender Juan Forchetti before Noonan lobbed a header over Grafer and into the goal. With the score 4-1 in the 68th minute, Noonan completed his hat trick when he collected a low cross from the left side by Brian Kamler. Noonan then made one of his patented cutback maneuvers through the MetroStars' defense before easily slotting a shot past Grafer from eight yards out. José Cancela triggered the attack for New England by releasing Kamler down the left wing with a spectacular overhead kick from midfield. Noonan started the month of October with a goal in the 4-1 victory over the Dallas Burn on October 4 at Dragon Stadium in Southlake, TX. Noonan put a shot past Dallas keeper Jeff Cassar after a sudden cutback move in the penalty area. Shalrie Joseph and Taylor Twellman were the setup men on the play; Joseph played the ball from central midfield to Twellman who then passed to Noonan. Noonan took several touches to beat former Revolution defender Brian Dunseth and then slotted a shot past Cassar. Noonan continued his scoring on October 18 at Giants Stadium in E.Rutherford, New Jersey when MetroStars captain Steve Jolley intercepted a long forward ball from Leo Cullen that was intended for Pat Noonan, but Noonan pressured Jolly and took the ball off his foot and broke in on the MetroStars goal. Jolley stayed with Noonan as he raced in on goal, but the rookie was able to deftly chip the ball past the onrushing Walker from 13 yards out to make the score 2-0. This is the first time that Noonan has received Player of the Month honors. The Major League Soccer Player of the Month is selected every month throughout the MLS season by a panel of journalists from the Professional Soccer Reporters Association (PSRA). The Revs begin MLS Cup Playoffs action on Saturday, November 1 at 5 p.m. at Giants Stadium in the first game of their Conference Semifinals home-and-home, aggregate goals series with the MetroStars.
