Seen this Academy thread and thought I’d pop this in:

Our Rangers FC podcast - The Gallant Few - had an interview with NYC FC’s regional co-ordinator for youth development; Calum Sinclair.

A really insightful interview into Calum’s role and his take on youth development within NYC and the USA in general. We also compare the development culture in the states to back home in Scotland, and how Rangers’ links with US clubs could be beneficial for both sides.

Available on Apple, Acast & YouTube:

Looks like we're losing our best academy prospect again and getting nothing for it.

IG: @osaze_derosario signed with an agent in Spain
i'm curious if the club ever reached out to sign him and they just didn't want to commit.. or if the club never approached him at all.

Our academy is the academy everyone wants to play for locally. Not worried

Gio Reyna subbed on in the 63' in the Champions League quarterfinal leg 1 vs. Man City. Quite interesting storyline.

Where do I even go to get good information on our academy and its prospects anymore? For example, NYCFC website still lists Joe Scally on the U-18/19 team.

its really difficult now from what i have read. once MLS NEXT took over its hard to find info across the league.

EDIT: i guess we just rely on whatever streams or videos NYCFC/ MLS NEXT provide

All the academy coaches I speak to say MLS next is a mess.
Was USDA that much better?

This website has the match details, but it's not that great...
