Looks like Ives agrees with me on Beckerman.... Not that there was any doubt to begin with....best defensive midfielder in MLS hands-down....and has been for awhile...just watch him week in and week out like I do as an RSL fan and there is no doubt...

All joking aside I agree with his first team for the most part....except Rimando should be in there...and Cooper has had a helluva year....deserving of a recall to the USMNT.....
