Over thanksgiving I asked a few questions and I had a couple of people try and answer but I thought I should set the record straight (according to me).
Who was first American to score in the Premier League? (1) For team did he score? (1)
John Harkes and Sheffield Wednesday was a good guess… but it was in fact, Roy Wegerle for Blackburn.
Which American scored the most Premier League goals? (1) For which two teams did he score? (2)
KMFE got this one correct:Clint Dempsey at Fulham and Spuds.
What two teams have had an American play for them this year in the Premier league? (2)
KMFE guessed Newcastle (specifically, Yedlin)and Cardiff. ME got the correct answer of Fulham…. but the answer has actually changed since then because it’s now THREE teams in this ever changing league. Newcastle (Yedlin), Fulham (Ream), Huddersfield (Williams).
Name four players who have been between the sticks for EPL teams (4)
KMFE got this correct: Tim Howard, Kasey Keller, Brad Guzan, Brad Friedel. Well, actually, she got what I thought was correct! ME added “oh what about the Reading Keeper.” – I looked him up and yes, a German-American geezer called Hahnemann played for Reading!
What feat do Tim Howard and Brad Friedel share with only three other goalkeepers? (1)
KMFE guessed “Shutting our Man United every time they played them”. Not correct but it did make me laugh that a Citeh fan would come up with that answer! But ME said a similar “penalty saves or clean sheets i’m guessing here”. The correct answer is that they both scored a goal. Anyone want to guess the other three?
What American played for Watford in 2007 after scoring in the Championship Final playoffs the prior year? (1)
KMFE actually got this one correct! Jay Demerit!
How many Americans have managed a game in the Premier League ? (1)
This was a cheat question. KMFE got “that Bradley nonce” and ME actually asked if Wagner counts… and he does.

Prognosticator of the Week
This week it’s BB because he picked Chelsea in the “upset” – which was the lone game I got wrong.
