What I've seen is that unless a prospective new player will be a starter, most clubs are reticent to cut a current player for a new one. It's the "the devil I know" conundrum. Non starters who are good kids, coachable, parents behave and play fees on time are generally safe unless they're just really terrible. Exceptions are top DA programs; there your spot is very more vulnerable.

No EDP team. Too many players left.

Unregistered I am confused - isn't this thread about LISC? I came to this site to see what the whispers where about but everything I read so far is either slanderous against LISC or discussing generic soccer matters. Please stop with the pettiness and start your own thread since you want to go off topic.

That's what happens when there's too many top teams and not enough top players, shocking no one but the clubs and USSF
