these guys to try and get em in Antworten

Imagine the proposition of taking on Didier Drogba, Andrea Pirlo, Kaka and David Villa. We pick the MLS All-Star line-up who could face Arsenal. The MLS All-Stars will play last seasons Premier League runners-up Arsenal in a friendly on Thursday (live coverage on Sky Sports 2 HD from 00.50am on Friday).The squad was announced on July 17 with All-Star head coach, and San Jose Earthquakes boss, Dominic Kinnear choosing 24 of the 26 selected players. League commissioner Don Garber was given two squad picks, and decided to opt for FC Dallas playmaker Mauro Diaz and Real Salt Lake stalwart Kyle Beckerman rather than the big names of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard. Arsenal will face the best of MLS in the 2016 MLS All-Star Game on Thursday, July 28 at Avaya Stadium in San Jose However, there are still plenty of great players on the roster. The question is, who will make the starting XI? Here, we pick what we think is the strongest line-up of those players named in the squad to face Arsenal...Andre Blake Andre Blake has been one of the leagues standout goalkeepers Andre Blake has earned rave reviews throughout the 2016 season for his dominant displays in goal for the impressive Philadelphia Union.A first round pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft, the Jamaica international was a substitute for the majority of his first professional season.But one year on, Blake has gone on to become Philadelphias undisputed starting choice in goal, making a number of highlight-reel worthy saves throughout the campaign.Steve Birnbaum Birnbaums performances in MLS has resulted in call-ups to the national team Steve Birnbaum has been a regular in a D.C. Uniteds defence throughout the season, and impressed enough to be called into Jurgen Klinsmanns USA squad for the Copa America.The 25-year-old has attracted interest from Europe for his performances, and is regarded as one of the leagues brightest defensive talents.Laurent Ciman Laurent Ciman has played a vital role in Montreal Impacts backline Since joining Montreal Impact during the 2015 season, Ciman is widely regarded as one of the best defenders in the MLS and has been given the nod for the All-Star game for the second successive year.The Belgium international has been an integral part of the Impact side, and was named MLS defender of the year in 2015.Kendall Waston Kendall Waston is one of the leagues most uncompromising centre backs One of the most physically-imposing defenders around, standing at 6ft 5in, Waston has established himself as a no-nonsense centre back for Vancouver Whitecaps. The Costa Rica international was the clubs Player of the Year last season and was nominated to the MLS Best XI.Kaka Kaka is Orlando Citys captain The Brazil midfielder is the key playmaker for Orlando, having been the club captain since joining before their first ever MLS season in 2015.Injuries have limited Kakas number of appearances this season, playing and starting in just nine matches and scoring three goals.However, the winner of the 2007 Ballon Dor has still impressed in the games he has featured in, contributing five assists. Thats just two fewer than his total in 2015.Andrea Pirlo Andrea Pirlo has scored one goal during his time in MLS Despite a rocky start, Pirlo looks to have finally settled down in a slightly more advanced midfield role with eight assists to his name in 2016 for New York City.Playing alongside Frank Lampard and former Athletic Bilbao defender Andoni Iraola acting as the holding midfielder, Pirlo has been able to play with greater creativity. The Italian scored his first goal in MLS with a free-kick against Philadelphia Union on June 18.Giovani dos Santos Giovani dos Santos is LA Galaxys top scorer this season Giovani dos Santos has been the most productive attacking player for LA Galaxy this season with seven goals and six assists. Only Steven Gerrard has more assists than Dos Santos with seven overall.Dos Santos had his most successful period this season between the end of April and the start of May where he scored five goals in four matches.Jermaine Jones USA international Jermaine Jones has enjoyed a good start to life with Colorado Rapids Having joined Colorado from New England Revolution just days before this season starting, Jones had to begin with a six-match ban for his conduct towards a referee after being sent off in the knockout round of the play-offs against D.C United the previous season.But his displays since then have helped take Colorado to a surprise second place in the Western Conference standings. The combative midfielder could be a strong defensive influence in what is sure to be an attack-heavy All-Stars team lining up against Arsenal.Sebastian Giovinco Sebastian Giovinco scored a hat-trick against DC United on Saturday Giovinco was in the midst of an eight-game goal drought, but ended the run with a hat-trick against D.C. United on Saturday night. The dry spell was surprising, considering last season he was the leagues leader in goals and assists.However, despite the mid-season slump, the 29-year-old is still enjoying a successful campaign. He has scored 11 goals and added seven assists in 19 matches. Recently, he won the ESPY award for best MLS player.Didier Drogba Didier Drogba has quickly become a fan favourite in Montreal Arsenal may be fearful of the former Chelsea talisman who boasts a record of 15 goals in 15 Premier League games against the Gunners.And in MLS, Drogba has had an immense impact on the league having scored 19 goals in 23 appearances during the end of the 2015 campaign and the start of 2016. In his first 11 matches with the Impact, he scored 11 goals and most recently scored a hat-trick against Philadelphia Union on Saturday night.David Villa David Villa is currently MLS top goalscorer Villa is currently the top goalscorer in MLS with 13 goals for New York City. The former Spain international predominantly operates as the lone striker in Patrick Vieiras 4-3-3 formation, and with an impressive support cast of Lampard, Pirlo and young Englishman Jack Harrison providing goal opportunities, Villa has every chance of beating his goal tally of 13 goals last season.Notable AbsenteesBradley Wright-Phillips - Has scored 11 goals this season but they have come in patches. Wright-Phillips started the season with a seven-game goal drought.Robbie Keane - Struggled for minutes this season after battling injury and being part of Republic of Irelands Euro 2016 squad, but still has six goals in nine matches.

Fake Jerseys 2020 .J. -- Having Ondrej Pavelec earn his 100th NHL win and seeing Mark Scheifele and Evander Kane break goal droughts were nice highlights for the Winnipeg Jets.SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Even against the Western Conferences worst teams, nothing is coming easy for the New York Knicks right now. Carmelo Anthony scored 36 points, J.R. Smith tied a franchise-record with nine 3-pointers and the Knicks held off a furious rally to beat the Sacramento Kings 107-99 Wednesday night and move a game closer to the final playoff seed. "We needed all of them, Ill tell you that," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said, shaking his head in relief. A night after a lacklustre 127-96 loss at the Los Angeles Lakers, the Knicks avoided a monumental collapse to another of the leagues cellar-dwellers. New York led by 24 in the third quarter before Sacramento surged back, and the Knicks needed a scintillating shooting performance from its leading men to snap a two-game skid. Smith scored 29 points on 10-for-19 shooting, including 9 for 12 from long distance. Anthony shot 12 for 21 from the floor and 5 of 8 from beyond the arc. "That was big time," Anthony said. New York (30-42) is two games behind Atlanta for the final playoff spot in the weak Eastern Conference after the Hawks (31-39) lost 107-83 to Minnesota. DeMarcus Cousins had 32 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists to carry the Kings, who played without injured point guard Isaiah Thomas (bruised right quadriceps). Ray McCallum made his first start in Thomas place alongside fellow rookie Ben McLemore, and the two shook off a slow start to bring the Kings back. McCallum had 10 points, six rebounds and five assists. McLemore scored 16. But New York outshot Sacramento 54.8 per cent to 47.8 per cent and finished 15 for 26 from 3-point range. "The 3-point line killed us," Kings coach Michael Malone said. "You have J.R. Smith and Carmelo Anthony, thats going to be tough to beat." About the only thing that kept the Kings close most of the night-- besides Cousins -- was free throws. Sacramento shot 27 for 35 on free throws, while New York finished 12 for 13. Sacramento scored the first eight points of the fourth quarter and finished with a flurry of highlights to give the Knicks a scare. Cousins three-point play overr Amare Stoudemire trimmed New Yorks lead to 96-94 with 4:30 remaining, sending most of the announced crowd of 15,494 roaring to their feet.dddddddddddd Smith answered with a 3-pointer, and Tyson Chandler came back with a dunk to put the Knicks up 101-94. After McCallum made two free throws, Anthonys 15-footer with 1:36 to play sent a cluster of fans to the exits, and the rest soon followed. "We know what they wanted to do," Cousins said, "but we have to go out there and execute." The Knicks already assured themselves of a losing season with an embarrassing loss in Los Angeles on Tuesday night with new team president Phil Jackson in attendance. The former Lakers coach, a longtime nemesis of Kings fans, was nowhere to be found in Sacramento on this night. Not that the Knicks shouldve needed Jacksons presence to get by a rebuilding Kings team that is far from the franchise he often led the Lakers past in the playoffs during Sacramentos glory years. New York took control in the second quarter with 20-6 run highlighted by defence and dunks. Chandler capped the spurt with an alley-oop from Smith that put the Knicks up 54-38. Anthony added two 3-pointers to extend New Yorks lead to 74-50 with 6:17 remaining in the third quarter, slapping his headband with his fingers as he backpedaled on defence each time. Smith squashed Sacramentos final rally by making all three of his 3-point attempts in the fourth, moving the Knicks playoffs hopes back in the right direction. "Ive been to (the playoffs) the last four or five years now, and to be home watching it on TV is not going to be any fun," Woodson said. "So Im desperately pushing these guys to try and get em in there, because then a new season starts and anything is possible." NOTES: The teams split the two-game season series, with each winning on the others home floor. ... The last time the Kings started rookies in the backcourt was when Isaiah Thomas and Jimmer Fredette started in a loss to Houston on April 8, 2012. ... New Yorks five-game road trip resumes Friday at Phoenix. ... Sacramento begins a three-game trip at Oklahoma City on Friday. ' ' '
