John Kerr Interview: Questions Please


John Kerr, the first American ever to play in the top division in England, will be the guest in a future episode of the EPL Talk Podcast, the only Premier League interview show on the Internet.

Kerr is a trailblazer in the history of American soccer. He made his debut for Portsmouth in 1987, five years before the Premier League began and three years before John Harkes signed with Sheffield Wednesday. While in England, Kerr also played for Peterborough, Wycombe, Millwall and Walsall.

Kerr, son of NASL player John Kerr Sr., earned sixteen caps for the U.S. national team and also played at Dallas Burn and New England Revolution as well as several other clubs. He is now the head coach of the Duke University soccer team.

    What are your (Kerr’s) views on how young American players should think about and approach a soccer career? There’s soccer, there’s college, then there’s college soccer, and for the gifted few, a professional career. As a college coach, what are some good soccer habits you would like to see in young players (u12-u18)? And finally, do you think that NCAA style soccer (short seasons, large number of substitutions, a clock that stops) might actually end up hurting the development of elite soccer players?

    Ask him why he played for the USA when is dad born in Scotland, and played for Canada, and he was born in Canada.

    Why not play for Canada?
    He did play in the CSL for the Hamilton Steelers – did that league ever have a chance?

    I would like to ask him about his career prior to joining Portsmouth. I know for a fact that the NASL disbanded somewhere in 1984/85.

    Have him tell his story of how he ended up at Pompey and what it was like to play briefly for them. Also, ask him if he still has any contacts with the club and what he thinks of Pompey's current situation.

    I'd say forward. I don't have a lot of faith in Donovan, Adu, et. al.

    Is there anyplace on the web that has a comprehensive review of current and former Americans playing in the UK?

    I try to keep track of them but it isn't easy
