I ask because I wonder if Brian Mcbride is close to reaching that record.
Wynalda scored 9 for Saarbrucken when they were in the top-flight (he scored 12 the following year, but they had been relegated). That must be the record, I'd think...though I am just guessing.
Right now, McBride has 8, and on current form, he should easily beat Waldo's record.
Does he not have 9? I thought 9.
8 league goals. 9 if you include cup matches
What about Roy Wegerle?? I know he scored 27 goals in 75 appearances for QPR and he was only there for a little over two years I believe. The were in the first division (pre premiership) during that time.
As of December 30th in League Competition (ties broken by alpha' order):
1 Ruud van Nistelrooy Man Utd 15
2 Frank Lampard Chelsea 12
3 Thierry Henry Arsenal 10
4 Wayne Rooney Man Utd 10
5 Aiyegbeni Yakubu Middlesbrough 10
6 Darren Bent Charlton 9
7 Henri Camara Wigan 8
8 Andy Cole Man City 8
9 Marlon Harewood West Ham 8
10 Brian McBride Fulham 8
11 Ahmed Mido Tottenham 7
12 Michael Owen Newcastle 7
13 Didier Drogba Chelsea 6
14 Robbie Keane Tottenham 6
15 Jason Roberts Wigan 6
Fulham has played 19 matches.. Halfway point of the season..
I take this is for top flight league only?
That's what the person who started the thread was asking.. Top Flight..
I didn't ask it right, I take it we aren't talking about the Faroe Island league.
Whatever, the FIPL is clearly superior to MLS.
In the 90-91 season he scored 19 goals .. Third most in the league..
I guess that would be the record for a USA citizen in Europe unless someone has a reason it's not..
McBride could still break it! It would be unlikely but he's good for a few more multiple goal matches..
We may be calling him McBrace before the year is over..
Beasley had 12 last season (8 league, 4 CL). Don't know if the league's "top flight" in your book.
well, technically he wasn't a US citizen until 92 but...
Well I would guess that's more than a technicallity if he wasn't a US citizen when he did it.. Perhaps the South Africans are claiming him for those goals..
We need a lawyer on the thread..
Another contender: Earnie Stewart, 17 goals for Willem II in 1990-91 in the Eredivisie. He got his first US cap in Dec. of 1990.
I wonder how this list looks when you factor in penalties won, and factor out penalty kicks scored, but not won?
actually, bease had 6 eredivisie, 2 amstel cup and 4 CL
btw, unless i am missing something, short corner has it correct: earnie with 17 for willem II in 90-91... he also had a 10-goal eredivisie season with both WII and NAC breda
well... the top 3 take a loooooot of penalties
Actually only one American has ever played in the Faroe Island league and he was a goalie. He played for Klaksvik and also had a chance to play in the UEFA Cup.
FWIW, I'll mention that when Wegerle and Wynalda were raking up their stats in Europe, the game was still in the pre-Bosman days. In the post-Bosman era, top Euro leagues have been significantly improved with imported talent. Fulham itself can feature an entirely non-English lineup, including the subs, : Crossley - Volz, Goma, Bocanegra, N. Jensen - Papa Diop, Boa Morte, C. Jensen, Malbranque - McBride, John; with Drobny, Crystanval, Legwinski, Radzinski and HH coming off the bench. (And Simon Elliot to join in soon)
Yah.. I would guess that's the right answer since I would guess we decided Wegerle's goals were when he was not a US citizen..
Not a record, but Joe-Max scored 8 for Everton (6 EPL) in 99-00.
Which I'm not sure really factors in here. While opposing teams might be better defensively, any YA would've have better teammates helping pull those teams apart.
Waldo and Wegerle couldn't choose their opponents, they could only do what they could to score goals.
Likewise, McBride, Beasley, and others today have the same task.
yeah, things should really clear up then...
So what's Wegerle's post-citizenship best? Or was he out of the top flight?
The entire soccer milieu has changed since 1995.
WTF? Isn't it clear that the post-Bosman competition in the top 5-7 leagues has gotten a lot better and, with it, the achievement of performing well also?
