wow, the cackles are up over the duNord XI or XXXIII, that is FANTASTICO that the readers have such passion.

Thank you, Brucio, I love your blog. While I do not follow most of the links, I truely enjoy your sarcastic and snarky wit with which you bring us the news of the game we love from around the world.

Have a great time in Seattle for MLS Cup, and anyone else who's going to be there, be sure to find the gringo gigante, and do more than just say 'hello', have a bit of a chat, or buy him a Coke.

For all you do, CHEERS TO YOU, my fanatico friend in futbol.

I love Brucio's snark, too.

Unfortunately, Brucio has difficulty handling snark which is directed toward him.

I really don't know who should or shouldn't be in the Top 11 or whatever. Unfortunately, there is no nice weekly MLS highlight show and most games aren't televised (those that are, are past my bedtime!--I can't stay up for a 11:25pm kickoff!).

3 very good lists overall.

I'm a little surprised by Padula over Cameron for the first team, but not surprised that he is on the list as he has put in a pretty good season. It is interesting that the league seems to be missing real standout veteran defenders and I have a hard time naming a player that should replace any of these listed here except for maybe Conde (who did miss a lot of games). I'd definitely not include Olave with his 3 red cards or Borcharts or the always-present Jimmy Conrad who had an off year by his standards.

I also don't really see Gaven and van den Bergh as 2nd teamers this year (over Ferreira and Schelotto!) and would have liked to see Osvaldo Alonso in at least the third team.

Finally, it is amazing not to see a DC United player on the list, and they can have no complaints about that. They need to clean shop. As do San Jose and KC, who also couldn't claim a top-33 player. Pathetic for those teams. Hopefully Wallace, Pontius, and Ryan Johnson can at least provide some future top players.
