Another statistical update, this time the youngest and oldest goal scorers
In league play, no new players joined the list in 2015. With the addition of Daniel Salloi this season if he can find the net he'll make his way onto the list. Other than him there are still a few others who could make the list, including Erik Palmer-Brown, Jimmy Medranda, Amadou Dia, Connor Hallisey, and Jordi Quintilla.
Another update on stats, this the top goal scorers in all competitions for Kansas City. First here are the years past.
1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 - 2013 - 2014

More updated stats for you, this time it is KC's top 20 goal scorers in league play. First is the list for prior years.
1996 - 1997 - 1998 - 1999 - 2000 - 2001 - 2002 - 2003 - 2004 - 2005 - 2006 - 2007 - 2008 - 2009 - 2010 - 2011 - 2012 - 2013 - 2014
This time we're looking at the most appearances and starts in a single season for Kansas City.
In league play for KC in 2015 the top two on KC were Benny Feilhaber and Matt Besler who both played 32 games in 2015. The two games both players missed came due to red cards (Besler vs New York in the season opener, and Feilhaber in the 5-0 loss to San Jose) and due to the club's resting players ahead of the US Open Cup final.
More stats heading into the 2016 season, this time it's the most starts.
In league play only one new player hit the 100 start mark, and that was Chance Myers who finished the season with 108 starts for KC. Heading into 2016 KC should have at least one if not more people joining the list.
Continuing to update stats for Sporting KC, here's a look at the most appearances in Sporting KC history.
In league play no new players joined the list for Sporting KC in 2015. In the upcoming season though KC could potentially have four players make the century mark. Benny Feilhaber is just 10 appearances from 100, behind him is Jacob Peterson who needs just 13 and Paulo Nagamura needs just 14.
As I continue to update states, here are the top 10 in single season minutes for Kansas City.
In league play there was no change to the top 10 in 2015, the closest was Matt Besler who finished the season with 2,830 minutes played for Sporting KC in 2015.
Jimmy Nielsen - 2012 - 3060
Jimmy Nielsen - 2013 - 3060
Nick Garcia - 2000 - 2916
Peter Vermes - 2000 - 2916
Preki - 1996 - 2880
Bo Oshoniyi - 2005 - 2880

Mark Chung - 1997 - 2871
Kei Kamara - 2012 - 2871
Mark Chung - 1996 - 2847
In all competitions, no one again made the top 10 for their play in 2015, and again it was Besler that finished the closest, finishing with 3,430 minutes played.
Continuing to update stats, here's a look at the landmark goals in Sporting KC's history. In the 2015 season KC hit three landmark goals, 1,000 goals in all competitions, 500 league goals at home, and 600 goals in all competitions at home. All of the record goals in 2015 were scored by the same person as Krisztian Nemeth scored all three of those landmark goals.
Not much from last night, but here are a couple stats from last night.
Seth Sinovic made his 128th league appearance for KC, tying him with Jimmy Nielsen for 16th all time on that list.
Sinovic made his 125th league start for KC, tying him with Tony Meola for 15th all time on that list.
More stats for you, this time it's the youngest and oldest players to play or start a game for Kansas City in league or in all competitions.
In 2015 unfortnately there was no movement on any list as no player that debuted for Kansas City jumped on the list for the youngest player to appear in a game.
Liverpool created 16 chances and had four shots on target, while United created five chances and had one on target. Firminho created the most chances (5), followed by James Milner (3) then Wayne Rooney (2).
Emre Can had the most shots on target (2), while just one of Jordan Henderson's five attempts hit the target.
