134 people on the list. 37 of them played for us at some point (not including Rimando or Hartmann). Over 25% of the list. Most far too late/early in their career.

No Gonzalo Veron, smh
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.

Not going to argue the list but probably a few guys that a least got some looks with Metro history:
Gio Savarese, Diego Serna, Mamadou Diallo, Roberto Donadoni, Kenny Cooper, Heath Pearce, Chris Henderson, Andy Williams, Dema Kovalenko, Wilman Conde, Ramiro Corrales

I could see him not being in the final 25, but not including Roberto Donadoni in the initial group of 134 finalists is a fucking joke.  He's better than at least a third of that list.  How many of them could go from MLS to starting at AC Milan?  How many could have even made the bench at AC Milan?  Absurd exclusion.

Well, Zlatan and Beckham.

 

Replace that with "early MLS", and...
