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.
Wednesday was the annual “Talk Like A Pirate Day”, so with this in mind, this week’s “MLS Team of the Week” is the “Pirate XI”…
GK: Kevin Blackhartman (Dallas)
D : Lee Young-Pyo-ho-ho (Vancouver Whitecaps)
D : Booty Harden (Toronto)
D : Steven Keelhaul (New York Red Bulls)
D : Grog Klazura (Vancouver Whitecaps)
M : Davy Jones’ Locker Arnaud (Montreal Impact)
M : Jolly Roger Espinoza (Sporting KC)
M : Captain Jack Jewsbury (Portland Timbers)
M : Justin Treasure Mapp (Montreal Impact)
M : Luis Long John Silva (Toronto)
F : Jairo Arrrrieta (Columbus Crew)
And obviously the team name will be Portland Shiver Me Timbers.
