YA Premiership Appearances (1992/93 - 2010/11)

Updated to include this past season's numbers. Thanks to Numerista on Bigsoccer for originally compiling the list through 2005/6, to which I've been adding to it since (so if anything's wrong, take it up with him :P).

This does not include data for any seasons before the formation of the Premiership. I've also decided to leave out the non-USMNT Americans like Giuseppe Rossi.

Ten Americans saw action in the EPL this past season, one more than in 2009/10. Clint Dempsey finished with 12 goals, and is now only three away from tying McBride for the most by an American. He's also one appearance away from matching McBride for the most by a field player. Brad Friedel has now played 400 games exactly, more than anyone in the MLS regular season (Ralston-378). Stuart Holden and Tim Howard also were full time starters, while Michael Bradley, Jermaine Jones, and Eric Lichaj played for the first time in England's highest level. Marcus Hahnemann, Eddie Johnson, and Jonathan Spector played on occasion, completing the list of ten. That's everyone, right?

Maybe you just didn't have room for it, but Keller had Premiership games with Leicester City too.

Just to clairify, this is only league matches, right? FA and League Cup (and euro) matches aren't included?

 

Blogger scaryice said ... (1:26 AM, May 14, 2008) : 

Yes, this is just league matches. And yes, I forgot Leicester.

1 goal by Friedel deserves a story. Do tell....

Wasn't Millwall in the Prem when Keller was playing there?

Also, I know Wegerle played with QPR for a while, were they not in the Prem when he was there? Or dies his time at QPR predate the Premier League?

 

Blogger scaryice said ... (2:17 AM, June 25, 2009) : 

Millwall was in the second division, and yes, Wegerle was with QPR before the EPL started.

Landon at Everton?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:43 PM, May 10, 2010) : 

Landon Donovan @Everton. Does loan not count?

 

Blogger scaryice said ... (12:20 AM, May 11, 2010) : 

Yes, I had this suspicion I was missing somebody. Thanks.

 

Blogger Alex Larsen said ... (7:36 AM, May 16, 2010) : 

According to Premiere League's website Brian McBride only has 36 goals.

 

Blogger scaryice said ... (12:12 AM, May 17, 2010) : 

Hmmm... Soccernet shows McBride with 10 league goals for 2005/06, whereas the official site shows him with only 9. That appears to be the difference. However, the game logs on Soccernet only show 9.

I've changed it to 36.

who has the most appearances in the Championship/Second division? I reckon it would be Jay Demerit first, and Bobby Convey/Marcus Hahnemann second. Eddie Johnson would be up on the list also. Eddie Lewis also played for Leeds for a couple years in the championship.
