Agree. Nycfc is a great team. EM still a powerhouse. SUSA without their additions would’ve been very mediocre. Just calling what I saw. They were very strong for NPL but NPL nationals was a complete joke compared to ECNL nationals. If you’re still in denial about that, you are in for a rude awakening They are hardly the same team because of their new players who joined are impact players. SUSA made big changes in all age groups bc they had to. It’s not a bad thing, just a fac. Not sure why the denial but good luck to all.
Not OP, but I don't see anyone in denial. Poster said that SUSA already had great players and that the team is not that much different. Granted adding 2-3 impact players to a team can dramatically change what happens on the field, but roster to roster it's not a completely different team.
The question I have is why would an ECNL POY from a team that was an ECNL National Championship finalist, up and leave said ECNL National Championship Finalist team and schlepp out to Suffolk to play on a team in its inaugural ECNL year? What the heck is going on at EM?
