All-Star Game First XI: A look at the fan vote so far

Who's leading the fan ballot for the 2011 MLS All-Star Game?

The MLS All-Star First XI is beginning to shape up quite nicely.

It's been almost a week since the polls opened for fans to pick their MLS All-Star First XI, so we thought we'd reveal how your favorite players are doing. There are no great surprises, but who would you rather see represent MLS in its summer classic against Manchester United on July 27?

Make your voice heard and VOTE NOW!

There's still plenty of time as polls close at midnight on July 5. Fans will also get a chance to vote for players via a special Twitter vote from June 17-20.

Fans may notice the First XI is looking a little top-heavy. Don't worry — it's unlikely All-Star coach Hans Backe will start four forwards against the English Premier League champions as he'll chose the actual starting lineup from a pool of players picked by fans, coaches, players and the league's commissioner, Don Garber.
