Hopefully they’ll follow full FIFA rules and training compensation payments will be made all the way down to the U12 developer. This has huge implications with the DA eliminating U12 - foreseeably spreading the rewards to non-DA clubs as well. What a great incentive to develop for all clubs in the ladder.



Sounds like Bullcrap, if they cared they would stop importing so many players. They will do whatever is in their cash interests. Which is why no promotion/relegation, can not have a stadium investment empty because I can not run a football club, blah, blah blah. Lastly the best thing for them with their apparent increase in South American imports is to rename the league. My suggestions are as follow ( in no particular order)

1) Mexico Football League North
2) Honduras Football League North
3) Guatemala Football League North
AND as a parting cheap shot at US Soccer ........ Trinidad and Tobago Football League North

Red Bull Update

New York’s Young Designated Player Kaku will be suspended for Saturday’s match against New England due to a red card against Sporting Kansas City.

• Alex Muyl (Ankle) and Kemar Lawrence (Hamstring) are Probable for Saturday’s match against New England.

• Saturday’s match will be the 73rd league meeting between New York and New England and the 38th time in Foxborough, Mass. during league play. The Red Bulls have had recent success at Gillette Stadium, owning a 2-4-0 mark in the last six matches. Prior to New York’s 2-0 win at Gillette in 2014, the Red Bulls were 4-18-7 when visiting the Revolution. The last five matches in New England have been decided by one goal

.• The Red Bulls concluded their first back-to-back league road games in 2019 and are scheduled to do it three more times. New York picked up one point at Sporting Kansas City and tallied at least three points in four of six back-to-back road trips, while finishing with a 6-3-4 mark in 2018. The Red Bulls are 0-1-2 away from Red Bull Arena with draws at Columbus and Sporting Kansas City and a 1-0 loss to Chicago.

• Brian White, a 2018 MLS SuperDraft First Round pick, made an immediate impact in his first MLS match of 2019, scoring three minutes after being subbed in for Bradley Wright-Phillips against Sporting Kansas City. Prior to Sunday’s match, White needed just 55 minutes of USL Championship action to score his first goal of 2019 against Nashville SC on March 24. The Flemington, New Jersey, native has tallied two goals on two shots in 161 minutes across all competitions (MLS/USL).

Chris Armas

What are his general thoughts about gaining confidence after the KC game?

“The days leading up to the Kansas City game, the vibe around our team and the energy, if you hadn't known the record or the previous results you'd say it's a team that's done really well because there's a lot of belief within these walls over here in what we were doing and who we are and I think we, we are able to see that in a big way on Sunday against Kansas City.” 

How do you overcome not having Kaku in the next game against New England?

“We've had to fill gaps, many times right with Kemar if he's not in or whenever you have a guy that's missing from the team, especially an important guy so we have other weapons, we have other guys that have proven that they can make plays and fill in with a real understanding of what we expect with and without the ball so we've thought hard about it and we will look over it next couple days. And, we'll be ready to throw everything at New England.” 

Sean Davis

How important is this week’s game?“Yeah, I think every week is important for us. It's a long season, you have to take it game by game, I think we're happy with the performance against Kansas City, I think it's a step in the right direction. But now we're going to a tough place to play and it's going to be difficult, especially with their style. They have a lot on the line, they're playing at home. We know they're looking for three points. So we're going to have to be prepared to match their mentality.” 

How to do you get around not having the greatest amount of success in New England?

“Yeah, I think we've actually had some strong performances in New England the last few years. I remember we beat them, I think two years ago in New England, and we beat them in the Open Cup that same year. Some teams have gotten results there as well. But again, they're a desperate team. And so you can look at other teams and just assume that this is going to be an easier game in New England. It's going to be very difficult. We all know that we're wrapping our heads around that early on. It's like I said a game by game approach. And we know that this is going to be a tough test.” 

Aaron Long

What do you see it as far as traditionally and what New England can do?

“Bunbury is pretty dangerous up top. I think Fagundez has had success against us in their building. Penilla, last time we played there was very good. So I'm guessing those front three are probably going to be our main focus, but I've heard that they've been changing their lineup every game. They've been starting with different guys. So we really don't know who they're going to play and what formation they’re going to play. We just know they're going to work hard.” 

Tim Parker

What is the approach against the New England offense since a lot of their stars haven’t scored?“We want to keep it that way. And I think, regardless, it's hard to play up there on the road, but we want to get back to obviously keeping clean sheets and making it hard for teams.” Do you think that starts with one dominant game defensively?“Yeah, I think there's a lot that goes into it. It’s a total team defending, it's a little bit of individual mistakes, but we just got to look at it and obviously set that bar high.”

MLS To Expand To 30 Teams

Major League Soccer which kicked off with a 1996 season with 10 teams, grew, but then hit bad times and 2 teams collapsed (the Miami Fusion and Tampa Bay Mutiny) in 2002.

But, things have vastly improved under the leadership of its commissioner, Don Garber.

The league expects to expand soon to 30 teams.

Progres,s and a huge turn around.

Roll Away The Stone Soccer News
04/19/19 02:24 AM
Major League Soccer today unveiled plans to expand to 30 clubs in the coming years, as Commissioner Don Garber addressed the news media following today’s Board of Governors meeting in Los Angeles. Garber also confirmed the expansion fee for each of the next two teams — clubs 28 and 29 — will be $200 million.

Although the Board didn’t select any markets today, the Board authorized the Commissioner’s Office to advance the discussions with St. Louis and Sacramento. Ownership groups representing those two markets will make formal presentations to the MLS leadership and the league’s Expansion Committee. MLS anticipates these presentations will take place during the second quarter of 2019 and will address the following for each bid:

Final stadium plan
Commitments of corporate support
Composition of ownership group
Detailed economics on funding
Strategic plans for fan development
Commitments on player development
Details on community programs
Following those presentations, a decision on the next two expansion clubs — teams 28 and 29 — will take place in the coming months. The Board deferred the decision regarding expansion fee and timeline for the league’s 30th club to a later date.

“Professional soccer at all levels is thriving in the United States and Canada and we believe there are many markets that could support a successful MLS club,” Garber stated. “Expansion during the last 15 years has been enormously successful and a key driver behind the league’s continued rise, and we are pleased that some of the top business and community leaders representing great markets in North America are aggressively pursuing MLS expansion clubs.”

With FC Cincinnati beginning play this season, Nashville SC and Inter Miami CF debuting in 2020, and Austin FC joining MLS in 2021, MLS has added 17 clubs since the beginning of the 2005 season, leading to a rapid and remarkable transformation of professional soccer in the U.S. and Canada. MLS is the largest first division professional soccer league in the world.

Since first expressing interest in an MLS expansion team in 2014, Sacramento has illustrated an impressive level of fan support with the USL’s Sacramento Republic FC regularly playing in front of capacity crowds. Earlier this year, Ron Burkle and Matt Alvarez joined Sacramento’s ownership group, providing the necessary resources to bring an MLS expansion team to the market. The unanimous vote by the Sacramento City Council last week to approve the preliminary term sheet for construction of a new soccer stadium at the Railyards site was an important development in Sacramento’s bid.

“Sacramento has persistently told us for nearly five years that they are built for MLS, and we look forward to continuing discussions with Ron Burkle and Matt Alvarez about adding an expansion team to the market,” Garber said. “We know Sacramento has a transformational stadium plan and strong engagement from government leaders. Since Ron and Matt recently became controlling partners in the ownership group, our expansion committee wanted to meet with them and learn more about their plans for the club.”

Considered by many soccer fans to be the birthplace of the sport in the United States, St. Louis has a strong local ownership group in the Taylor family and Jim Kavanaugh, community and business leaders with deep roots in the city and region. Led by Andy Taylor and Carolyn Kindle Betz, the St. Louis expansion club would be the league’s first female majority-owned team.

“St. Louis has a terrific ownership group and a long history of supporting the beautiful game,” Garber said. “During our visit to St. Louis last month, we came away very impressed with the corporate community’s support for a potential expansion team, and we believe the downtown site is the ideal location for a soccer stadium. We know there is still important work that needs to be completed to secure the stadium site before an expansion team could be awarded to St. Louis, and our expansion committee looks forward to meeting with the ownership group.”

In addition to Sacramento and St. Louis, MLS remains in discussion with several other ownership groups and markets regarding future expansion.

As MLS evaluates potential expansion candidates, three key aspects are considered top priorities:

A committed local ownership group that has a passion for soccer, a deep belief in Major League Soccer and the resources to invest in the infrastructure to build the sport in their respective market.
A market that has a history of strong fan support for soccer matches and other sporting events, is located in a desirable geographic location and is attractive to corporate sponsors and television partners.
A comprehensive stadium plan that ensures the club will have a proper home for their fans and players while also serving as a destination for the sport in the community.

This isn't true, girls move up and down now all the time. There's a cap for example on the number of ECNL girls that can play in a NE NPL game but they absolutely can do it. And vice versa. So that's not a new benefit, which again leads me to believe this is literally nothing more than a rebrand.

“I believe the post about 2 current ecnl players was from another person. I think there are currently 2 prior nycfc '03 girls on the current ecnl team. The other poster seems to believe they are both already invited. Not sure about that. But based on who attended the da practice the other night, it is obvious that at least a few girls from the current ecnl team were already invited back for next year and some girls were already rejected. The ecnl girls who were at the da practice the other night are those who are "still being considered".

Do you mean there are some that have been accepted to next year’s ecnl that we’re not at the most recent DA practice?

New York City FC expands Academy structure with City Select League

NEW YORK, N.Y. (Via NYCFC) – New York City FC has introduced the City Select League (CSL) which will commence play in fall 2019.

Launched in 2016 as the NYCFC Affiliate League, the expanded City Select League will now include more than 20 clubs across the Boys U-9 to U-12 age groups.

NYCFC Academy Director Sam Pugsley said: “With the U.S. Soccer Development Academy dropping the U-12 age group starting in the fall of 2019, we had a natural platform to expand our youth league to the U-12 age group, while also including a number of new clubs in the area. Moving forward, we’re confident that the City Select League will offer clubs in the broader Tri-State area an optimal competitive platform for player development and pathway.

“We’ve reached out to and chosen some very good clubs that will help facilitate the launch of the City Select League. They know and understand what we’re looking for and what the general philosophy and overall ethos of the league is.”

NYCFC Sporting Director Claudio Reyna added: “The City Select League came from NYCFC as a Club wanting to connect and have relationships with local youth soccer clubs in the area. We’ve done that from day one and for us it’s been very important to make sure our door is always open.

“Creating a competition that we oversee and manage will ensure it’s the right environment for youth players in the Tri-State area. It’s really unique amongst MLS teams and it is important to continue every year to develop more and more relationships with the local soccer community and this is one big step towards that.”

In its current form, the youth league consists of NYCFC’s seven affiliate clubs: Downtown United SC, Manhattan SC, Met Oval, New York Soccer Club, TSF, SUSA and World Class FC. Once the expanded league format commences this fall, additional local clubs will be involved throughout New York City, Long Island, Westchester County, Rockland County, Connecticut, and New Jersey.

At its core, the league enables young players to compete, learn and grow within the structure of Academy soccer. The City Select League concentrates on four main pillars:

Meaningful competition: Inclusion of top-level clubs in talent-rich areas
Managing league format and structure: Prioritizes development with age appropriate guidelines
Reduced travel and cost: Increases local competition with no team registration fee
Shared sporting values: Allows a transparent player pathway to professional soccer

Pugsley added: “The general ethos of the league has been to share common sporting values that maximize player development and we hope we can extrapolate that out to the wider group as we look to expand to the U-12s and include outside clubs.”

I agree for the most part. However, there are kids who will rise to the occasion when placed on a more competitive team. True, after a year of riding the bench, it's probably in the players best interest to move to an appropriate level team. However, I think it's quite reasonable to give a borderline player a chance. I have seen several B team players move up and later become an A team starter.

http://nplnortheastgirls.demosphere.com/teams/93172399/84575257-93172461/TEAM.html

So it's definitely not 30 on the ECNL roster, and very much more about movement between the ECNL and NPL teams, which is what is supposed to happen.


Sorry to inform you. For the record there are 30 listed - I just went to the site and counted. Interesting argument though. One says 30 which I agree is the listed amount of players while another claims 27. In either case way too many. Maybe they play maybe they don't but does it really matter. The team is toast. DA has 12 girls that are 03s plus one of the best goalies in the country who isn't currently on the roster plus the 2 players currently playing on the WC 03 ecnl team that makes 14 maybe 15 girls who are DA level. I would suspect everyone (maybe one or two don't - including one that goes back to NYSC) of the girls will take the ecnl opportunity. Less travel, no fall season, already have offers and yes, they get to dominate at their local high school. This will all play out over the next 2 months. The current team will have a hard time in its next four games (most likely four losses) , then a chance to to maybe tie one and may even get a win. Then they return from PDA tourney to get crushed by SUSA. I bet a max of 7 or 8 (more likely 5 or 6) girls on the current team ecnl make next year's ECNL. Hard to justify more than that with two years in a row of 2 or 3 league wins and a significant negative goal diff. Sorry if this upsets some but it's the truth and you should start planning now.


Agree, for the most part. Curious however why it was necessary to invite so many of the current ecnl girls to da practice giving them false hope when it’s already predetermined?
Isn’t it obvious who can play at that pace?

So the parents believe there kid got a fair shot and they can chalk up the team placement to a single bad tryout.


Do you really believe it’s all predetermined? That he isn’t open to players he doesn’t already know?
And what do you mean “2 current ecnl players” - only 2 are predetermined? That leaves a number of openings.


I'm sure he is open to new players. I meant that he is probably somewhat familiar with all of the current ecnl players at least by reputation/coach recommendation or past experience. And for those girls, I imagine he already has pretty much decided with very few exceptions.
I believe the post about 2 current ecnl players was from another person. I think there are currently 2 prior nycfc '03 girls on the current ecnl team. The other poster seems to believe they are both already invited. Not sure about that.

The point you miss is there are many way to win. the "best" eleven player to do that may not be players 1 thru 11 in ability. Also, if i can win using say 4 players, what is to stop an agenda dictating the selection of the other 7? maybe i could win using 433 BUT i can also win using 442 and that favors some players over others?
