MLS 2010 - Week 7 Notes

1) As I'd mentioned, Pat Onstad became the oldest player in league history Saturday. After 2,018 days, Preki has been surpassed and Onstad is the 9th person to hold that title (10th reign). The top 25 oldest MLS players list has been updated as well.

The record breaking only received about 5 or 6 mentions, according to Google News.

2) In other age-related news, Juan Agudelo became the 13th youngest player ever in all competitions when he debuted for NY against Philadelphia in the Open Cup qualifier.

3) The LA Galaxy's fantastic start continued with a 4-0 away win against Seattle. Not only was the style of victory remarkable, but so was the record that they set. The 2010 Galaxy broke the record for most consecutive minutes to start a season without trailing, which is currently at 720 and counting. The previous record was held by the 1999 Dallas Burn at 710 minutes.

4) Barring injury, at least two foreign players will represent MLS in the 2010 World Cup: Andrew Boyens (New Zealand) and Roger Espinoza (Kansas City). Here's a list of previous MLS players to make World Cup rosters. Previously, MLS has had 5-0-4 foreign players at the last three World Cups.

Either there's a new MLS team I didn't know about (New Zealand) or a new country made it to the World Cup (Kansas City)...
