WPS: My First-Half Eleven

I list my starting eleven from the first half of the season at Goal.com -- Tuesday Throw-Ins: The WPS First-Half Eleven

Tough to argue those picks, although I might have made a case for Karen Carney (I know they didn't score for a month), Lori Chalupny (just for holding her team together after the Daniela injury) and definitely Formiga. Too many good midfielders to separate. Definitely can't argue with the forwards or keeper.

I too would offer a vote for Karen Carney who has displayed a tremendous work rate for Chicago. Her crosses have been quality, she's made many great runs and displayed a feisty battling defensive nature too. Megan Rapinoe has been her opposite side of midfield twin. Carney on 1st XI, Rapinoe pushing for a spot as well.

Otherwise, great list from what I've seen thus far.

Thanks for the great comments. The midfield was brutal and I debated going 4-3-3 due to some great forwards out there so far, but then I would have had to leave another mid off the list!!!
