What happened at EM Field Of Dreams yesterday?
Ruairi and Gary had a clinic on FOD on Saturday with their specially chosen ECNL teams. Disappointed the high school aged teams aren't on the schedule yet as it would have reinforced EM's success at developing top players in Long Island(that was totally a joke).
The famous 2010 team that GS hand-picked from his studio in Lindenhurst gave a show on how to defend and keep the ball in your half while supporting your GKs. Wait I should point out, that's been the common thread amongst all these East Meadow teams-they are built around kids farmed in his studio. Then RM takes these kids and spoils them before handing them over to someone else for the beating.
That being the source of misery doesn't show any inkling of selecting Elite players that can compete at the top level is only going to boil over until the best players leave to go to the next best club at the ECNL-SUSA. Revolving over and over season after season, until parents start seeing through there game.
Just to reinforce, the day started off with 13 goals shut out for the 2010 ECNL.
Ever wondered why LM left the 2010 team to go to SUSA? Even after RM showed special interest making sure she was playing at the highest level and representing EM as his latest poster child. But wait, it's not the outcome as the would say to parents to brainwash you to believe there is a development plan in place for your kid. Kids come and go, but sign up and pay extra for their elite clinics only designed to take your kid up to the next level. You've just empowered them to set up the next set of kids and parents into believing they have a special talented child.
When they are not any better than a regular soccer player at this age playing for their town. But kids will come, kids will go-ECNL for only the Elite players is being used to get them rich. SUSA really the only ECNL team in Long Island with players operating at that level from 2010 up to high school ages.
Just ask every player that left and came across to SUSA over the years. There have been a lot, they have been the best players and they are all guaranteed to be playing in ECNL Championships at the top brackets with the best players in their age groups in the country. After spending all that money in travel at EM to go the ECNL games and showcases for the year its heartbreaking to know your kid will never compete at the highest level-as much as they (EMSC) will keep trying to make you believe.
Just like sheep.
The day didn't fare well for the other age groups as well. SUSA should be banned from playing EM in the ECNL.
