Today Major League Soccer has announced it’s Best XI for the 2009 season.

Keeper: Zach Thornton

Defenders (3): Chad Marshall, Wilman Conde, and Geoff Cameron

Midfielders (5): Dwayne De Rosario, Landon Donovan, Stuart Holden, Shalrie Joseph, and Freddie Ljungberg

Forwards (2): Conor Casey and Jeff Cunningham

Some shockers may jump out at your like Seattle’s Ljungberg. My voting went a little different but not all that far off from what the rest of the voters went with. I had Seattle’s Osvaldo Alonso and Dallas’ David Ferriera in my midfield. I also had Seattle’s Jhon Kennedy Hurtado in defense and Fredy Montero as one of my two forwards.

If I had made a second team XI, Conde, Holden, Casey and Ljungberg would have all easily made that team.

What do you all think of this year’s Best XI? Did the voters get it right?
