We haven’t done this for a few weeks, but every week we feel like doing it, 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.
Summertime has a few good weeks left in her. From my point of view, one of the worst aspects of summer (apart from the heat!) is having to deal with all the bugs.
With this in mind, this week’s “MLS Team of the Week” is the “Insects XI”…
GK: Donovan Crickets (Portland Timbers)
D : Young-Pyo Flea (Vancouver Whitecaps)
D : Gnat Borchers (Real Salt Lake)
D : Ante Jazic (Chivas USA)
D : Connor Ladybug (New York Red Bulls)
M : Junebug Marques Davidson (Vancouver Whitecaps)
M : Michael Roach (New England Revolution)
M : Luis Silvafish (Toronto)
F : Omar Slugado (Vancouver Whitecaps)
F : Cam Weevil (Houston Dynamo)
F : Babayele Sodaddylonglegs (Seattle Sounders)
A possible team name would be Chicago Fireflies.
If you want to see this team in action, we believe there is a friendly lined up against Grasshoppers of Zurich.
At the game, listen to the fans chanting “earwig-o, earwig-o, earwig-o”.
