Nice graph

Actually, it's not really a graph, or even a chart, but mediotiempo does have this cool webpage that tracks all the Mexican players in foreign leagues. Yes, the MLS guys, Blanco, Mendoza and Suarez are on that list too.

They even have a spot for Maribel Dominguez, from the women's team.

It would be nice if U.S. Soccer or someplace had such a chart, so at a glance fans could track the progress of their favorite players abroad.

There is this "Global" blog on the U.S. Soccer site, which is pretty good for news and updates, but nothing as nice or easy to look at as mediotiempo's page.

Don't look at me to do a page like this - I'm not very tech-savvy. I'd just like to see someone who is do it. If anyone knows of a page like this, feel free to provide the info in the comments section.

The pictures they have for Hector Moreno and Duilio Davino are wrong.

Makes me feel better about my occasional goofs on this site.

Ives weekly summary is the best, most concise I've seen:

Yanks Abroad tries to do this, per league (see the UK summary here):

but I find their summary much hard to read compared to Ives'.

I like pictures of every player with my chart of their games. I know, I'm being demanding, but it's hard not to be when mediotiempo.com has theirs laid out so nicely.

I'm with you on this one A.C.
Graphic elements make things easier to read.
Let's figure out how to put one together for your site.
Or maybe I'll try to put one together for a new site or something.

I agree with you AC, very nice. I saw this page earlier in the season and found it to be a very quick & handy guide to following the players abroad. ESPN Deportes' Futbol Picante also has a nice graphic each week to show the same information.

Hope that Scott can set up something similar for the US players!

Good luck Scott! If you get it done, let us know and we'll put a link to it from this blog. You'll do the soccer community a great service!
