MOST COMMENTED

[MAKING A LIST] There were at least seven more expensive strikers signed by English Premier League clubs this season, but none has proved to be more valuable than Mexican Javier Hernandez, whose first-half goal helped Manchester United beat Chelsea, 2-1, and move into the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League. The output by "Chicharito" is almost double any other player on the list. His form is in sharp contrast to that of Chelsea's $84 million signing Fernando Torres, who remained scoreless.

    Javier Hernandez is a humble hard-working lad. he knows what he wants and shows it to the world in every match he participates in. He plays every game with intensity and real desire. He truly is the depiction of a complete footballer. When compared with Torres, what a waste of money, Chelsea...

    He plays with total joy, like Messi does. And he's a total joy to watch - - except when he's playing for El Tri against the USMNT!
