Yesterday's draft was super, wasn't it?  While I was surprised that the Union chose a keeper with their first pick (5th overall), he does fit a need.  Additionally, if he reaches his potential, this could be a very good pick indeed.

What did you guys think about the draft?  Are MacMath, Farfan, and Houapeu good fits for the team?  Is it embarrassing that I've only won one of the last 5 matches I've played in FIFA 11? Join the discussion below.
