Some of us are interested in him like we’re interested in former first-team players. But we don’t have a player thread like for Angelino or Mendoza or whoever because he never made it to the first team. I guess we could create a former academy player thread for the ones that got away. Probably could do a single thread rather than separate ones for different players.

Interesting test case. Will we still track Sands when he’s playing for Schalke?
If we do, then it should be under the former player thread.

Leave this thread to the current Academy Players, coaches, etc.

Edit: sundance sundance is quicker on the trigger

Shout out to the U15s and the U17s for both winning their groups and advancing to the top level of the GA Cup Championships. Only 3 Academies achieved that feat -- the fact that one of the others was NJRB speaks to the amount of talent in the greater NYC metro area being developed.

o_Oo_O what ? so then the power just went from USSF to MLS

will be better run that way considering the ineptitude of USSF. If you look at USSF’s history of growing talent in the US, anything is an improvement. Hell, give MLS a 6 year contract to run the USMNT (Though I’d worry that would only secure Berhalter’s hold on the manager’s position).

If NYCFC was in charge of USSF, then over those 6 years, we’d have 4 managers.

I’d show myself out now...... but we’re all already isolating.
