Like Brian Bliss and Duncan Oughton, Crew goalkeeper William Hesmer weighed in on his All-Time MLS Best XI. Hesmer deviated from Bliss and Oughton's 3-5-2 formation to go with a 4-1-4-1 look. The veteran 'keeper chose a very American-laden lineup with the exception of Canadian Dwayne De Rosario and former Crew teammate Guillermo Barros Schelotto, check it out:
William Hesmer's All-Time MLS XI (4-1-4-1)
|DF||Carlos Bocanegra||Kasey Keller|
|DF||Chad Marshall||Ryan Nelsen|

As part of MLS Supporters Week, former MLSers and Crew front office personnel Brian Bliss and Duncan Oughton took the time out of their Monday to choose their All-Time MLS Best XIs. Bliss took the time to list all the candidates he felt were qualified at each position and narrowed the list down one by one. Oughton went the extra mile and included a bench to his list.
Check it out:
Brian Bliss' All-Time MLS XI (3-5-2)
Duncan Oughton's All-Time MLS XI (3-5-2)
