    1. Not counting goalkeepers, what player in Clash/Quakes history played the most minutes for the team without scoring a goal?

    2. Of all players who have scored goals for the Clash/Quakes, who played the fewest minutes for the team?


    These questions take into account MLS regular season only.

    Yes, Jair is correct. One goal in 60 minutes.

    Without scoring a goal EVER or having the longest block of minutes devoid of scoring a goal?

    Is it our current Clash/Quake player Richard Mulrooney? (Unless, like bpc asks, you're looking for someone who hasn't scored a goal EVER.)

    I'm thinking it's not Richie. He scored this season.

    Noah, can you give us a hint or something?

    It's someone who never scored a goal for San Jose. Hint: He is no longer on the team.

    Excellent guess, but Emenalo scored 1 goal in 56 games for the Clash.

    Another hint? When did he play for San Jose? What position?

    I'm just kind of an impatient person. I hate when I can't think of answers! :D

    He had 7 caps for the USA, for whom he also scored no goals.

    Cheater ;) How about Dominic Kinnear, the man we traded to get Vasquez and now our esteemed assistant coach... did he ever score for San Jose?

    Yeah, I'm certain Kinnear scored for San Jose. If I recall correctly.

    SJQF wins! Martin Vasquez, acquired in a trade for Dominic Kinnear, provided the 1998 Clash with 2,076 forgettable minutes and no goals. Other contenders were Mike Burns (1,660 minutes), Scott Bower (1,577, though he is among the team leaders in Open Cup goals), Dan Calichman (1,442), and Tim Weaver (1,170).

    I was gonna guess Scootie. But then you said the correct player wasn't on the team anymore. :D

    That means, during that shining 2000 season, we watched more than 3000 minutes (combined) of Mike Burns and Dan Calichman (makes note to send another thank you letter to Frank Yallop).

    I was going to be a wise guy and say Wynalda or Azizi, but we're all about good feelings on this board!

    More seriously, thanks for doing this Noah, this is a fun thread.

    Go Quakes

    3. Who was the first foreign-born player to score for the Clash?

    4. Name all of the players who have played for both the Clash/Quakes and the Galaxy.

    Let me try (and I did not cheat, but was tempted!):

    Zak Ibsen
    Dan Calichman
    Harut Karapetyan
    Adam Frye
    Lawrence Lozzano

    How'd I do?

    His minutes were so forgettable that I didn't even know we ever had him!
