In the wake of Clint Dempsey's historic season at Fulham, Sports Illustrated's Grant Wahl took the time to rank the 15 best single-season performances for US players playing across the pond. Four former Crew players made the cut including Brad Friedel and Brian McBride. John Harkes and Thomas Dooley also made the list for their time abroad before Major League Soccer's inception in 1996. The Black & Gold is tied with the second-most players on the list with the New England Revolution. New York/New Jersey tops the list with six former players.
