I want someone to see the stupidity in brek shea being a mentor for our youth.

"USMNT midfielder @BrekShea taking time from his offseason to train and mentor the 🇺🇸 ahead of Wednesday's Nike International Friendlies opener vs. England"

Our programs have learnt nothing.

I wouldn't say stupid, but I would agree there are others who may have been better suited (Spector comes to mind). At any rate he is a solid professional so why not?

But I can see it from the standpoint of any conspiracy theorists among us that Shea is a poster boy for the pitfalls of playing overseas and MLS and USSF are exploiting him to try and keep the young talent at home.

Impressed with Scally, Bello, Stroud, and Las so far.

England were way better, USA looked younger, weaker, slower...

Getting spanked 2-0 by Holland right now. Hard to watch. Team is not cohesive. Have to scout better players.

Now 3-0 to Holland. Exposing Hackworth as a coach now that there is no longer a residency program.

Until we improve youth well continue to be average at best at the full national team. Depressing.

Wow, how can this be the chosen crop of the new U17 team... this is insane... so slow, small, scared and you'd expect if they are small and slow that they would be super technical but they aren't even that...

I've loved the Nike Friendlies over the past few years as it always gave me hope to see our young boys challenging top countries but this is hard to watch...

They are only 15 years old at this point. I stopped watching after the first game (after I went online and realized they are mostly 15 years old), once they are close to the U-17 world cup two years from now and are 17 years old, then I'll start watching again. 15 years old is too young to really concern myself over, IMO.


The young soccer careers of Rubio Rubin and Brady Scott are headed in completely opposite directions.
