Whitecaps Minutes Played Numbers

Who played the most outfield minutes for Vancouver in the 2010 USSF D2 season? Come on, I bet you can guess. (Benjamin Massey/Eighty Six Forever)

This is the sort of post that is going to appeal to about three of you. But hopefully those three of you will really like it.

After the jump is a list of the minutes played, goals scored, assists recorded, and the rates at which each player got a goal, an assist, or both in the 2010 Vancouver Whitecaps USSF D2 regular season. The list is sorted alphabetically by the player's last name. Only the USSF D2 regular season is included; the Voyageurs Cup and the playoffs may follow in a subsequent post, if there is interest.

There is never much statistical work in soccer and never has been. With the relatively limited number of statistics that can be derived from the game, it's questionable how much real insight one can get with a calculator anyway. As somebody who can't subtract, I certainly won't be the one to usher in the North American soccer statistical revolution. But I do have an interest to see who scored at what rates, and who played a tonne of minutes this season. Thus, the data dump.

Tomorrow, I'll look at some of the surprising aspects of these numbers and see if there's anything we can learn about the Whitecaps' strong, but ultimately unsuccessful final division two season that we didn't already know.

All scoring and minutes numbers are from the United States Soccer Federation.
