Hey guys. As it currently stands, there is no stand alone query-able database on MLS statistics (that I am aware of, at least). Although, there are probably hundreds of independently created partial databases out there in hundreds of different formats. I would like to take on (or at least help orchestrate) the monumental task of consolidating this information into one place for public use. The information in this database would look something like this: (This would be one match's worth of data. It's organized one line per player, and reads as if it is databasing player based statistics. Team statistics could easily be extrapolated by creating a sum query on the team field.) Organizing the data this way allows you to do whatever kind of query you want: player stats, team stats, goal stats, goalkeeper stats, etc. It's also 100% searchable, all the data is in one table, etc. The stats themselves (shots, SOGs, FCs, etc) aren't mind blowing or anything, this is simply a matter of having them all in one place that can easily be manipulated. Additional fields could easily be added in the future. So, the two biggest problems I have for a project like this is (1) finding the information and (2) populating the database with it. MLSSoccer.com includes all of the above information in its stats section for recent matches, but this level of detail only goes back to the start of 2011. Climbing The Ladder (@scaryice) has tons of this information going all the way back to 1996, but it doesn't include all the stats (like CK, FC, FS, etc) and it isn't nearly as database-friendly as I'm going for. So let's start with a couple of questions: 1) How easy/hard is it going to be to find this level of detail all the way back to 1996? 2) Does this information already exist someplace I'm just not finding? Is this a total waste of my time? 3) Does anyone have any additional input? Does anyone want to help?
