Just thought since a lot of individual player threads get taken over by discussions over player development, perhaps it is time for it's own topic.

My question then is...Taking into consideration we all agree the US needs much improvement on player development, which team(s) or league(s) should we use as a model and what characteristics should be emphasized?

I like how you started the thread in the Germany section. Cause they are clearly top notch when it comes to development of players.

Dortmund of the last 8-10 years has been one of the best in the world.

Southampton has the best run academy in England by a large margin.

FC Dallas are doing very well so far.

There are plenty of others but those three immediately cone to mind.
