Hmmmm... If you started a set of twins would they count as one defender together?

I've been surprised at the lack of pre-season recognition for Keelin, especially after her exposure as captain with the U2? team.

I think Kelsey should also have been seriously considered here.

Indeed for both of them, but really, the 4 forwards for both teams is pretty darn ridiculous, but yay for Michelle for being the only first teamer from a non-BCS conference!

Who plays a 3-3-4???

I seem to remember the Oregon high school all-state soccer teams playing anything from a 1-4-5 to a 0-0-10.

Seriously though, at this level, that is ridiculous.

Man City is playing a 1-0-9 this season, the better to maximize the skills of all their new additions.

I'm done with the City jokes for a while. I swear.

On no, please do go on.... I insist! (Perhaps a PPT Man City Rant O' The Day thread is in order...)

The only thing I can think of is that forwards get more stats, so having four forwards on your all-America teams makes it easier for voters to blindly vote for players with stats.

Keelin only had two goals last season, so she must not be very good. Wink
