Seattle still dominates All-Star vote

With less than a week remaining in the fan voting for the First XI for the MLS All-Star Game, there are a few races that are just too close to call, while others, like goalkeeper, have been decided since Day One.

Veteran Kasey Keller is far and away the overall leader in votes among the fans, with Seattle Sounders FC teammate Freddie Ljungberg a distant second.

Seattle remains the hotbed of fan voting, with eight Sounders FC players -- Fredy Montero, Steve Zakuani, Osvaldo Alonso, Jhon Kennedy Hurtado and Tyrone Marshall joining Keller and Ljungberg among the leading vote-getters.

Still, the fan vote doesn't mean those players will be in the actual starting XI.

That decision will be made by the coaching staff of the MLS All-Stars. The current top 11 vote-getters also does not factor in the balloting from the other three voting bodies (media, players, and coaches/GMs).
