* Landon Donovan scored his ninth goal of the season with a header off a David Beckham corner kick in the Galaxy's 2-1 win over Chicago. Beckham scored directly off a corner kick later in the game for his second strike of the season to go with his eight assists.

    I am of the belief that in league play for golden boot award, that total points be counted, ie, both for goals an assists....reason: it is about choices, be selfish an shoot, or pass off to mate who may be in better position to score...strikers are supposed to do both...all things being equal, I would take the player with total combination points anytime..
