Dept. of Records

We had been maintaining our own set of records with respect to all-time caps and goals for Canada. However, the CSA site now appears to have a decent handle on these, and we will no longer make the effort.

One stat we will continue to track is our "Minutes under Mitchell" database. So far, in 4 official matches (the Vejle friendly is not included for obvious reasons), a total of 34 players have been used. Julian de Guzman continues to lead in the minutes played category, while a whole host of players (including Charles Gbeke, Adrian Cann, Dave Simpson and Chris Williams, among others) are unlikely to add significantly to their totals in 2008.

Here is the list:

Totals 44 13 3949




* Totals include non-FIFA sanctioned friendly vs Martinique, but not friendly against Danish club side Vejle BK

The total minutes don't divide evenly (4 matches * 11 positions * 90 minutes = 3960), due to the Stalteri red card against South Africa.

We welcome any corrections from any loser bored enough to go through the numbers that carefully.
