Can someone familiar with these laws tell us what Lederman's options are? Can he play for another team in Spain? Ideally he'd head to Valencia or Sevilla. Sporting Lisbon would be an excellent choice as well. If not, Ajax or Arsenal. But I'm not holding my breath.


His only option is to wait until he is 18. He is not permitted to move to a foreign club for football related reasons until he is an adult. For example, his parents would have to get a job offer before he could be eligible to play for a club abroad.

Delusional. Liverpool is ranked among the world's best by people that matter, unlike yourself and Galaxy Academy. Pelosi was the best U20 prospect till his leg break but continue being an ass about a kid getting his career derailed, that's the kind of person you are. When Galaxy academy puts out players like Gerrard, Carragher, Liddell, Fowler, McManaman, Owen, Sterling, Ibe, Thompson then come talk to me...., I could keep going but you get the point.

Let's give Pelosi a chance. He's basically Lletget two or three years ago, not playing except for reserve sides. And you Galaxy crowd are creaming your pants and hurting eardrums with cries of him making the national team. I'm not a Liverpool fan but let's be realistic here. And right now I think most would say the top MLS academy is Dallas, with NYRB next. The galaxy are big money spenders let's put the record straight.

And for Lederman to return to Florida he basically stamped his USA playing passport permanently. Those kids get chance after chance after chance compared to other players outside the circle of trust that is the USSF inner soccer party.

I get the comparison, but Lletget didn't break his leg.

Last I checked pelosi has been suiting up for San Jose and now the u23s in the England game. Seems to have recovered well. No shame not being able to pass up Sterling etc with or without his horrible broken leg.

He's not the same player, I've watched him more than anyone here or probably most everyone. He was a different player prior to that break, and a top player in the academy, easily top 3 across the board...after the injury, and coming back, he was bypassed by a lot of players. Still good player, just doesn't have the pace/separation he use to, I think it's affected other areas of his game.

That's your area of expertise, Liverpool. And perhaps he won't ever get back to the player he was because of the injury. But I will always take players that want to challenge themselves at places like Liverpool if they have the opportunity (or Barça in ledermans case). Stepping back to America to get playing time and chances is always there for most of them, even if they've had a horrible leg break.

I was thinking the same thing. Creaming himself thinking of Lletget, who was developed in England

I hope Pelosi comes back strong, he was my favorite prospect for awhile there. But I mean just watching him, it's tough, he looks like allen houston after the injuries. with the athleticism gone he doesn't have the requisite craftiness to compensate.

Why can't we have nice things? Every time a US player starts to climb the ladder at his club or breaks thru then he gets hurt. I was going to list some players but it's just too painful.

Lletget is a nice thing

Zelalem is a nice thing

Hyndman is a nice thing etc

but I agree when someone gets hurt at such an early age for so long, I don't have statistics, but I imagine that severely puts you at a disadvantage

Most big stars have had big injuries early in their careers and have bounced back nicely. It all depends on the players mindset. Look at charlie davies having a nice career after that horrible accident most athletes would of never competed again had they gone trough that.
