Moreno, LeToux among players chosen by Philadelphia Union in MLS Expansion Draft

Union

Columbus Crew forward Alejandro Moreno, Seattle Sounders forward Sebastian LeToux and Chivas USA defender Shavar Thomas were among two of the ten players chosen by the Philadelphia Union in Wednesday's MLS Expansion Draft.

Here is the list:

Brad Knighton, David Myrie, Shavar Thomas, Jordan Harvey, Shea Salinas, Stefani Miglioranzi, Andrew Jacobsen, Nick Zimmerman, Alejandro Moreno, Sebastien LeToux

Surprising omissions? Amado Guevara was considered a good bet to be chosen, while Frankie Hejduk and Eddie Robinson were also considered good possibilities.

Sources also tell SBI that Philadelphia is in talks with Real Salt Lake about a trade for goalkeeper Chris Seitz. The Union could stick with Seitz and Knighton as its two goalkeepers if it deals for Seitz, but Philadelphia could deal Knighton back to New England.

What do you think of the list? Which is your favorite selection? Which player are you sad to see your team lose? Who are you surprised to see not picked?

    Christian Gómez (DCU)

    S. Nyassi (Sea.)

    For the record, SBI got 2/10, not 1/11. And for the record, I appreciated the mock draft. I, too, was pretty surprised by the results.

    Does anyone think Vincenzo Bernardo might be coming back to the states to play in the MLS. I heard news a while back but nothing lately so far. VB10

    It’s mindboggling to me that Nowak didn’t take any of the following:

    Iro
    Convey
    Nyassi
    Saunders
    Dunivant
    Eskandarian
    Grabavoy
    Thompson
    Sturgis
    Igwe

    All brilliant opportunities missed in my opinion, ESPECIALLY Iro.

    i think Le Toux was terrible, with mere moments of decency. whenever they subbed Montero out, and Le Toux went in, i gulped and said -so much for any more goals this game-. glad to see him leave the Sounders.

    No Schelotto, no moreno. Looks like Lenhart will be given the start. I hope they’ll sign someone else.
