The American-est

It's time to take a short break from the Clipboard for an update to this old post from Jacob Klinger. Obviously, there have been plenty of additions to our table of the clubs that have fielded the most Americans. But I've also made a few alterations: 1) no more prospects listed, a guy has to have played at least one first team match to count, 2) a few clubs way, way down the league pyramid have been dropped (for example, seventh division German side FC Fortuna Schatthausen) & 3) several teams in some of the weaker European first divisions (Finland, Armenia, Malta, etc.) have been added.

As you can see, FulhAmerica has quite a bit of work to do to keep that tag (even if they are still in the top four overall). If I missed any players or clubs, be sure to let me know in the comments section.

Good one. I meant to add them and clearly forgot. Probably got sidetracked by food...
