Interactive map

Post by Geezaldinho on Wed Jul 30, 2008 6:23 pm

Here's a link to all the USA players now playing in the top two divisions in Europe.

I found three familiar names there, but perhaps you'll find another UP player I missed.

Lower down, somebody tracked the players who recieved the most fouls, yellow cars, and red cards in the premier league.

Just goes to show how tolerant refs are. Alan Smith received 426 cautions and only 7 red cards!

I can think of a couple Pilots who did better (worse) in their college careers.


Have fun!


Best eleven

I count four, based on the list on which the map is based. I didn't check all the players on the map, but I assume the four are there. And no, I did not count Nate Jaqua, who is on the list as an MLS player. PS: Assuming Kasey Keller is not counted, two of these players have seen significant playing time on the MNT at positions that reflect the U of P coaching heritage. Now that I think about it, the other two also play a position that reflects the U of P coaching heritage. Twisted Evil

perhaps Keller is between contracts, because if you click on Fulham, he doesn't show up there.
The US players listed are Dempsey and Johnson.

No question the players mentioned all demonstrate a UP heritage.

I was pretty amazed at the number of US players now in Europe. A decade ago you could count them on one hand.

You got it on Keller, Geez. I missed that one. I wonder if he's nearing the end of his career. Maybe the Pilots will get a new keeper coach. Wouldn't that be something!
