2006 MLS Lineup Database

It's finally completed. The 2006 MLS season is now over, and the database can be downloaded from Rapidshare by clicking here. There are 17 files, one for each team, plus overall stats and notes. It contains the results, lineups, and goalscorers for every official game that every MLS team has played in. Plus, stats on the total number of appearances (sorted into starts/subs) and goals for each player, in all competitions. Then there's the all time records for each team. Just a ton of info that any hardcore MLS fan needs. Check it out.

EDIT: 11/15/2006. In the OVERALL sheet on the overall tab, Edmundo and Esmundo Rodriguez were counted as the same person. I've fixed this and uploaded it again. Also, on CLB and OVERALL sheets, Ivan Becerra's name was spelled "Bercerra." I've corrected that too.

I can't recall if you mentioned this in the past, but how to you keep track of all this lineup stuff? Do you just keep on top of it week to week? How did you get all the old stuff done? I've been thinking of doing a project for the national team, but going back through the older games seems daunting.

Just lots of work copying and pasting from MLSnet for the regular season/playoff lineups. Also used Soccer America,, and Internet Archive.

I would imagine overall it took at least a day of my life. I did everything last summer, then I only updated it at the end of last year and this year once each team's season was complete.

All the national team lineups are on the US Soccer Hall of Fame site.
