Whenever we feel like doing it (and we haven’t done one for a while, much to everyone’s relief I’m sure!), we think of a subject for a football team to be based around, then fill it with our starting eleven of current and recent MLS players with some appropriate name changes, or even better, just as is.
Your scouting job is to come up with the subs bench, from any player from around the world, and leave your player suggestions in the comments section.
Valentine’s Day. Does anyone actually love the day apart from card shops and florists?
We wanted to tell you we loved you all (hic) and get all romantic with you with our latest “MLS Team of the Week” – the “Valentine’s Day XI”….
GK: Kevin Heartman (ex FC Dallas)
DF : Zarek Valentine (Montreal Impact)
DF : Drew Amour (Colorado Rapids)
DF : Adrian Canndles (ex Toronto)
DF : Connor Laid (New York Red Bulls)
MF : Lovel Palmer (Real Salt Lake) [one for the single guys out there]
MF : Brad Ring (San Jose Earthquakes)
MF : Andy Rose (Seattle Sounders)
MF : Macoumba Candy (ex Houston Dynamo)
FW : Calen Card (Houston Dynamo)
FW : Kris Boyd (ex Portland Timbers)
Few exes there. Quite fitting for a day about love and relationships.
And why Kris Boyd? Because he’s over-rated, you pay an inflated price for him and at the end of the day he’s isn’t worth the money. Just like everything on Valentine’s Day.
Wonder if Kenny Miller might make this team next year…
Anyway, forget all this romance nonsense. Happy Carl Valentine’s Day everyone.
