Zero teams in MLS employed a three man backline this season.

Along with his 15 goals (one more than EJ), Thierry Henry had 12 assists this season, compared to only 3 for GAM. I was thinking the same thing about the possible exclusion of Eddie Johnson in favor of Robbie Keane or Henry, but both of those guys had better overall numbers.

I would tend to agree. Henry was on fire early in the season and then went AWOL.

I'm paraphrasing here, but this was one of the best things I've ever seen on the SB.
