Now, the MF Best XI is not done by position (and the current state of 3-3-4 should not be tried), but...

 

Does Kemar deserve the third defender slot over Olave? Olave was great in his first season, good but not great in his second, while Kemar has been excellent in 3 of his 4 years (his 2016 was off).

Absolutely. I do think Long and/or Parker will take it from him in the long run though.

I think so. Has been the best LB in the league for a couple years now and is still bringing it. Selfishly I don't want him to go but I feel he will at least next season. Definitely considered to make it in all time 11.

MF no joke I was going to make this topic after seeing this game.

 

It may be recency bias, but I really think that Kemar deserves it over Olave.  If there was a 2011 - Present Best XI, I think that he would be a shoe-in for that.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

I think Lawrence deserves it over Olave. Taxi gives his all for the team life before him ever have.

If you were to look at the mt match rating system... would the same players appears as best 11?

I remember being super bummed when Olave moved to Salt Lake.

 

 Then, he never did much. 

 

Kemar is en route to being a Metro legend. Lets hope he stays put.

No, but the match rating system doesn't go back prior to 2001, and is not weighed for subs. I guess if we strictly go by that, we have
