More time on the ball is the key. There are several ways to accomplish that. You can go the pick-up route like much of latin-america. Or you can go the practice route of say an Ajax academy. Developing sound practices that are aimed at getting each kid time on the ball and learning.

It's so easy to point out when watching the USMNT. Watch those who have almost all of their training and development here in the USA and almost all of them are so deficient in with their first touch,

Dude Geoff Cameron... I want some reporter to ask him "where did you learn to comb the ball over like that"

Where did he learn how to play? We need to bottle that.

Or more importantly, not where did he learn how to do it, that's fine, but where and when was it encouraged, or did you go rogue and just decide you were going to express yourself?

Do you remember Cameron's back heel to Bradley against Belgium in overtime? at close to the halfway line?

I remember thinking "this mofo understands the game"

He drove into traffic to attract two dudes

he left bradley to make his preferred run forward, unguarded now because of his kamikaze run

no time to stop and turn and pitch it to the guy behind you

he backheels (more like rolls) lol

like seriously, was i the only one who was HAH!

So we finally have a real journalist write an article again regarding a new suit (training compensation) against MLS:

Crazy all of our MLS journalists, I mean soccer journalists ignore these suits.

Garber upset MLS isn't compensated when a youth product goes overseas.

Absolutely priceless.

Also mentions owners upset their investment in youth isn't paying off, wants assurances it will in the long term. Alternative is to not have youth investment?

What a league.

Kidding aside shouldnt Canada want their own league? Every country has its own league. Even the tiny carribean island nations have on. I know the geogrpahy makes it tough but you'd think they could do Vancouver, Edmonton, maybe Calgary and Winnipeg, and then 8 or so teams in the east (Toronto, Montreal, Quebec, Hamilton, Ottawa, some others?) Maybe include Buffalo and Detroit if MLS shuts them out. Isnt that the best way for Canada as a nation to grow the sport. Is it realistic? Probably not. But that should be their pie in the sky Canada Football 2030 goal.

No, they shouldn't. They need their players playing in the best league possible, and the MLS is much preferable to a watered down Canadian league. One of the reasons for Scotland's decline is that they have a really mediocre league that drags down all of their young talent. The best Scottish players are the ones that make it to the Premier League as young as possible. The longer they stay in Scotland, the less their chances are of becoming a quality player.

MLS is not trending upwards like it was 4-5 years ago. And it won't as long as Garber is in charge.

Could you clarify this statement a bit? I only ask because Garber was in charge 4-5 years ago when MLS was in your estimation, "trending upward." So how will it not trend upward under his stewardship when you yourself asserted that it was doing just that in 2011-12?
