Dallas coach, Colin Clarke added his selections to the All-Star team yesterday. He named Scott Garlick and Simo Valakari from his own Western Conference leading team as well as Frankie Hejduk from the Crew, Chris Albright from LA and Pat Noonan from the Revs.
Also, commissioner Don Garber added DC’s Ghristian Gomez and the Revs Taylor Twellman.
No Freddy Adu which is a shock to me. Also Chicago, San Jose, Colorado and Chivas won’t be represented in the match.
So, the final table of players who’ll be representing MLS at the end of the month looks like this.
- Dallas – 6
- NE – 5
- LA – 2
- RSL – 1
- Metro – 1
- KC – 1
- DC – 1
- C’bus – 1
- SJ – 0
- Colo – 0
- Chi – 0
- CDC – 0
I’ve gotta admit, I’m surprised more of an effort wasn’t made to insure every team was represented…but I doubt I’ll watch so I guess I don’t need an opinion here.
On one additional note for Galaxy fans. Did you notice that while LA have two players (Donovan and Albright) on the All-Star team…there are three former Galaxy players (Ruiz, Reis and Vanney) on the MLS squad.
