U must be the only idiot around who thinks the mls academy is legit. The national team is by far worse now than in the 90”s. The academy was a failure cause it is all political. More so at nycfc

The last I checked Christian Pulisic is 5'8"[/quote]

Nobody is saying there are no exceptional players who are small especially if they are as fast as Pulisic . The issue is more about smaller kids being overlooked for bigger more athletic kids by academies . Obviously there are exceptions - but not as many as there used to be .

But if your kid was still there it would all be ok right? Get over yourself. Time to move on.

The MLS may be garbage, but the european based US youngsters about to break into the national team look great to me! Best generation of talent I can remember.

Gio Reyna and Weston McKinnie might turn out the best of the bunch and they are not small lads.

Of course he is. He has a team of people working on his behalf. He is good but do you think he would have made it this far if he had no connections. He has made the most of the opportunity his dad afforded home

I remember seeing a little kid play with the NYCFC academy about 5 years ago. He looked like he was running the game. 5 seconds ahead of other bigger stronger faster kids, great technique and composure. I asked the local DA coach who he was. He said, 'Take a good look. That's what a future professional soccer player looks like.'

And where is this kid now? If some DA coach says to me "that's what a future professional soccer player looks like" I will just laugh a bit. If he says instead, "that's what a potential future soccer player looks like", then I would take it more seriously and keep an eye out because the DA coach is being realistic.

Gio is fantastic and yes, his dad got him that extra help. He was always going to be a pro. The support and help from dad are why he's on a UCL team at 17. Otherwise he's a homegrown NYCFC or Red Bulls player, trying to crack an MLS lineup (MLS teams dont give kids playing time) and get to Europe in a few years. That is what dad did for him. The main thing is that dad cant help him now, and right now this kid delivers and he's going to be awesome for USMNT.

Where is he now? He's 17 years old and he starts for Borussia Dortmund.

I like what you wrote here. But what is sad is the part about the USMNT. That should be a proud highlight for him but it's really a step backwards the way US Soccer is run. I'd love to see a really competitive USMNT but that isn't going to happen any time soon. 350M people in our country and we can't produce a competitive team on the International Level. SMH.....

That’s the point. They have a few legit players and the rest are there due to politics. They went from Bradley to Trapp. The whole organization is a sham. They got rid of Klinsman because he wouldn’t play by there rules. Players like Bradley complained about a coach who has accomplished everything you can in soccer and the powers that be listened to these spoiled underachieving 2nd level type players.

I’m confused. You are agreeing that his dad opened doors for him while other players got screwed and then u say he’s the greatest. So it’s ok that better players got pushed to the side due to nepotism. Is it possible that these players who got pushed to the side could be doing great things also? Maybe if the academy acted in those other kids best interest they would be in the same position. Just wondering

Great post, I could never figure out the Klinsman thing. How obvious, duh

Yep. We can’t develop world class
Players let alone a team. Pulisic had an “unconventional” route

Klinsmann is a terrible manager. Great player who became a con artist. Should have never gotten the job in the first place and set us back.

How did he set us back? By playing half the crap they still play/played ? I look forward to your thoughts on this.
