Before the premier league season starts this week, can you name the Irish players with the most appearances in the PL for each club? https://www.sporcle.com/games/IrishAbroad/name-the-player-with-most-pl-appearances-for-each-club

We’re back baby
You asked if I'd be anyone from history, fact or fiction, dead or alive:
I said "I'd be Tony Cascarino, circa 1995"

Interesting that pretty much all our premier league defenders are playing in systems with three cbs:

Doherty
Egan
Duffy
Stevens

Only Coleman isn’t

I remember checking the Sunday papers for Irish Premier league appearances 15 to 20 years ago - the target was always to find 20 Irish players playing in a weekend. About half the time you'd find that many or more. We're still miles away from that now but good to find some improvement starting to come through after the last few years.

15-20 years ago the competition was far less fierce. You had guys playing in the top 4 teams that probably wouldn't get near top-half sides nowadays.

Not only that, he's the first Irish player to score in the Premier League! Eddie McGoldrick was second, about half an hour later

After Jack Byrne became the 500th player to play for Ireland last night, I wondered who the other players at each 100th-player milestone were http://irish-abroad.appspot.com/Blog?id=1784395758237795597
