This is just an idea, but it seems like on whose time has come now that so many people are pitching in on the search for Yanks around the world. There are several sites out there that list player citizenship, and they are very useful for finding players. However, I've come across sufficient errors on most of them that I often hold off starting threads on certain guys until I can get some level of confirmation beyond the site itself. Sometimes the sites are right (probably more often than not) but I've seen some very careless errors -- they seem to be guessing based on the name, or skin color, or a year or so at an American college, etc. I think we should try to do a little better. I'd like to propose that we use this thread to propose possible Yanks based on what web sites say and then crowd-source the follow-up work to nail it down. Personally, I try not to start a thread on someone unless at least one of these things happen: A news report calls him a Yank A database site lists a birthplace (and I'm reasonably sure it's Reading, Pa., and not Reading, UK) His club, college, USSDA or other reputable organization (like a foreign federation) says he's a Yank The player, his agent or a family member says he's a Yank Certain reputable BigSoccer posters in a position to know say he's a Yank This is just a proposal, so I'm interested to hear reaction. Here are some useful sites for starting work: www.transfermarkt.de www.bdfa.com.ar www.fupa.net www.soccer-talents.com www.eufo.de www.femexfut.com If you know of others, glad to hear them.
