No Landon Donovan?

That was my first thought when I looked at the list of the top 11 vote-getters in the year-end rankings. The Los Angeles Galaxy attacker didn't have his finest season on the field, but still I figured he would be a shoo-in for one of the spots. He's certainly on mine. But I don't know; maybe the wisdom of the crowds is correct.

Here's the top 11. You know what? That's not a bad team at all. Danny Williams wasn't on my list (and he should be) so maybe there isn't room for Donovan. But I think there is.

1. Michael Bradley
2. Clint Dempsey
3. Tim Howard
4. Geoff Cameron
5. Fabian Johnson
6. Steve Cherundolo
7. Jozy Altidore
8. Graham Zusi
9. Herculez Gomez
10. Carlos Bocanegra
11. Danny Williams
