2006 Lineup Database: Monday
|I am releasing the 2006 edition after the MLS Cup ends. For those of you who didn't get it last year, it's a series of excel files for each team. They contain a listing of every competitive game that team has played along with the lineups for each one. There's also stats (yearly & overall) for starts/subs/goals, and all time records. There's also the overall file which has all the stats for every team in one handy place.|
I spent an awful lot of work putting it together last year, but it was worth it. Now I have a handy reference for MLS games and whatever research I want to do. Updating it for this year was not too bad in terms of time. Once the MLS Cup is over, I have to update the HOU/NE and the overall stuff and it'll be ready early AM Monday.
There are some differences from last year's, other than the 2006 data. First of all, a number of errors have been fixed. Most were pretty minor. Some cosmetic stuff has been done, like adding first names to all players on the stats pages and lineups. But it's mostly about the content.
I'm planning on making this blog into a full-fledged web site sooner or later (probably later), and this database will be the bulk of the content. Sort of similar to Baseball Reference. At least that's the goal. So I hope you'll enjoy it...Monday.
