MLS MVP Guillermo Barros Schelotto and Los Angeles Galaxy star Landon Donovan were among the top names in the 2008 MLS Best XI, which was revealed on Saturday afternoon.

Here is the squad:

GOALKEEPER (1): Jon Busch (Chicago Fire)

DEFENDERS (3): Jimmy Conrad (Kansas City Wizards), Bakary Soumare (Chicago Fire), Chad Marshall (Columbus Crew)

MIDFIELDERS (5): Cuauhtémoc Blanco (Chicago Fire), Guillermo Barros Schelotto (Columbus Crew), Robbie Rogers (Columbus Crew), Shalrie Joseph (New England Revolution), Sacha Kljestan (Chivas USA)

FORWARDS (2): Kenny Cooper (FC Dallas), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles Galaxy)

What's my take? I think it's tough to argue with any of the selections, though I think Steve Ralston should have made first team for his contributions this season.

What do you think of the team? Surprised by any of the selections? Who do you think was snubbed?
