Discussion in 'Boys Development Academy' started by Bomar, Jul 27, 2018.
It’s very difficult to win with smaller players.
Thanks. I do think that this year will see that there has been a lot of player consolidation. I’m afraid some of those teams aren’t going to be as good as past years.
any idea when the rosters should be posted? curious to see who went where. having said that, this discussion raises a question about clubs' commitment to player development vs player recruitment.
I think is up to each club
Some do it earlier and some wait til last minute from what I have experienced
Arsenal u14 has been posted for about a week
Zero commitment to development.
“I want a team that can win.”
Straight from one of the horses mouths.
you must be talking about Surf.
Recruitment and development go hand in hand.
Sorry to say...Surf have recruited and developed and in my honest opinion play the most attractive soccer in So Cal(04,05)age group.Lets see!!
Let's see is right!!!
I saw some games at surf cup...
LAG's roster is up. Has the max of 20 players. Counting nine new players. looks like they picked up LAUFA's top forward (21 goals), three out of four of LAUFA's starting back line, LAGSD's top forward (17 goals) and best d-back, plus a defender from Norcal who mostly played u14, and then two players who don't have DA histories.
PT is going to be scarce and those LAG practices will be tough (but maybe not in a good way)
Wow, quite a collection of talent they have assembled. Looks like Surf and Galaxy will be the teams to beat. Unfortunately, Surf won't have any competition now that they split the regions into SD and LA.
My money's still on LAFC...
As the sole representative from American soccer, our 2005 #LAFC Academy squad got off to a flying start yesterday in the U-13 Concacaf Champions League tournament in Toluca, Mexico. 4-1
Have you watched the level of competition? Better teams here in SoCal.

15 clubs from mexico, Canada, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Jamaica, honduras, Trinidad for group play.
4 group winners+ 4 2nd to the quarters where the competition more interesting.
Compared to league where only a few teams at the top are competitive this is much different & great learning experience for all.
Mostly 05' going U14 this 18-19 season with a few 04's & 06's.
Sub 15 internacional today
Chivas 4-0 LA Galaxy.
The Ussda has a long way to go , just not good enough prep for teams playing internationaly at a higher level .
I don’t think is the ussda soccer, the LA Galaxy is just not good at all, I like how the Chivas players teach the Galaxy how to play good football and not soft soccer lol.
