No Crew players selected for FAN XI. Some of the choices are a bit baffling.

Oh you three are great and all but you play in Columbus so...

I'm hopeful that more substitutes are being added to this team because most of the current roster has 60 minutes in them at best with Howard, Beasley, Kaka, and co. 

But shows you that having MLS fans pick their All-Stars is a real winner. 

At least the fans got Nemanja Nikolic correct.

All-Star - 2017 - Fan XI

As Justin Meram has best half of a season of his career with 20 appearances, 8 goals and 6 assists from midfield. Nope.

In 18 appearances, Federico Higuain has 9 goals and 5 assists from midfield. Nope.

Even Ola Kamara has 20 appearances and 9 goals and 3 assists. Good for 25 goals overall in 45 appearances. Nope.

They still have a chance to woo the MLS media or Don Garber. Yet the fans have decided that none were for the FAN XI.

Instead they selected Kaka and his 3 goals all year at forward.

Tim Howard who has also only appeared in 13 games all year for a stunning 4-8-1 record.
Steffen in his rookie MLS season would be a much better choice as he hasn't missed a minute and has a 9-10-1 record.

Beasley, as apparently it's a celebration of old players that can only appear in 60% of games over a season.

Speaking of.. 

Well at least Bastian Schweinsteiger missed the first month and a half and that's why.

Greg Garza and Graham Zusi got in not for amazing seasons but because there US National Team third stringers and MLS fans can't seem to pick defenders. 

Crognale and Naess may have had a chance if they could see the field more often for us. 

Michael Bradley is really DPing it up this year, has a lone assist all year from midfield. Wow.

The only players so far selected that deserve to be All-Stars are Nikolic, Almiron, and Villa. 

Instead of calling it an All-Star game call it a BIG NAME AND SORT OF GOOD US NATIONAL TEAMER GAME

There's 12 more players to be selected by Veljko Paunovic from what the MLS media selects. 

Veljko is the MLS All-Star coach for I guess helping his club to a second season in a row in last place last year.

Then 2 more will be selected by Don Garber. Sure that those will be some big names as well.
