- 2011 MLS All-Star Game
I’ve given this one a decent thought. I’ve said before that I’m not a huge fan of the current MLS All-Star game format but it is what it is. Its not perfect and its definitely a risky game for some teams when they see two or three of their star players involved.
But I thought, what if the league returned to their old ways of playing the game in an East v. West format. I do miss the days where the league’s best from each conference squared off against one another. Hypothetically speaking here is what a starting XI could look like for each side. The East is in red and the West is in blue.
Of course the starting XI wouldn’t look exactly like this. I’m sure it would look a little different if some league coaches were involved.
What do you all make of the East v. West format? Or do you prefer the current style where the league’s best face a team from across the pond?
(Note: please don’t get wrapped up in the names listed here…its all for fun and is hypothetical)
