Watched them do it this whole spring in 2011. Pathetically but it figures knowing the club
This is not fair to say. Barca struggles with where they fit. The politics of leagues is RUFF for them.
They training produces quality...but they don’t have the opportunity for top leagues. Their C teams are great within a season or 2...so where should they play? In Spain they figure it out with a conversation.
The gate keeping a politics in US youth sports is super foreign to them.[/quote]
Maybe Barca should in that case stop getting rid of their Local American coaches that have influence and connections. They did that to Joe Dilaberti and many others that wanted to be part of the program and help. They got rid of Brooke Derosa and that was a huge mistake as well. Barca is selfish and the executives do not want to work with locals because they have no respect for them. Guess what, in return, the locals and market have turned their back on Barca and Barca is becoming just like Valencia, irrelevant. It was a nice idea, could have been something BIG but the guys from Spain that are running the club have no respect for the market they are in. Many local coaches that joined and left the program have warned Barca that this would happen and all they got was a laugh and dismissal from the coaches and directors from Spain. Well, good luck then! give it 3 more years and the club will fold because we have seen a decline in numbers every single year where all others grew. Its a shame really but Barca has no one to blame but themselves for what they are facing today.
