It wasn't all that long ago when this list wouldn't have gone beyond the fingers of one hand -- and those would have been on second and third division teams.

Back from LA... tired, jet-lagged and, hopefully, Swine-flu free.

We need a good world cup. Some doors just can't be unlocked until your homeland is a respected soccer nation.

SG: This is the third time in a row that you report -wrongly- about Sal Zizzo; he did play 90 minutes in Hannover's win at Halle--their first defeat of the season in Regionalliga Nord.He is NOT on the Bundesliga team but called up occasionally, playing really well.
Also, it looks as though Maurice Edu has cracked the line-up at Rangers for good.
Great job, otherwise!Thanks.

It is extremely discouraging to see Simek and Spector not playing. I can understand if Spector was not used because he is coming off of injury, but Simek is consistently benched. We have had a serious problem at left back on the national team since I can remember (post 1994 World Cup) and I don't think Beasley is the solution especially since he is not playing regularly either.

Goff, you left off Marco Vidal from Indios de Ciudad Juarez again. He played 90 minutes again as Indios picked up an important 2-0 win on the road at Puebla (featuring former Dallas Burn Honduran-American Ramon Nunez).

The points from the win nudge Indios ahead of Necaxa in the dreaded and complex relegation table. (In Mexico, one team gets relegated after each Spring season and it's based on their average points per game over the last 3 years. Recently promoted teams like Indios have fewer games in Primera so their ppg average can fluctuate a lot more than "old" teams like Necaxa).

No one wants to be the last team on this list when the season ends in 2 weeks:

Freddy made the 18....

At this rate, he could be playing a couple of years. Or, not.

With all the DCU excitement -- worth noting (as FSC reported) that DCU alum Ryan Nelson had a heckuva game for Blackburn, including his first ever Premier League goal. Not an American Abroad, but still....

How does Tracy leave after only 14 minutes? Was he injured, red carded, or did he just play that badly?

Carlos Bocanegra? Looks like he played the full 90 for Rennes in the Coupe de France semifinal midweek.
