I think Everton is the loser in that divorce.

Nah. Everton has their niche. They will be fine

As it relates to the partnership, Everton did all the work (coaching, organizing, admin, etc) but didn't get any of the profits.

I do agree that FCW has lost its Identity. The Under Armours? NYSC has a stronger brand at this point.

They dismissed a newly hired Academy coach 1 month into the season and their younger Academy teams are not good.

Between the two clubs, they could be a relatively strong Academy. As it stands, they'd struggle to win in the NPL.

just trying to follow - you are saying if they combined they could have a relatively strong academy (assuming BDA?). and as it stands, which team (or both) would struggle to win in NPL? (genuinely curious, not trolling).

Not the poster but an FCW/NYSC marriage would create a much stronger non MLS club that the are could use. Better one strong one that two weaker ones. Having girls could also help make it one strong DA club overall, condense resources etc. It makes a great deal of sense. The only issue is that lately USSF seems more interested in holding onto geography and market share vs quality programs. If the two clubs wanted it they might approve it but you won't see USSF pushing for it proactively.

Right now, NYSC has been passing on their best players to NYCFC. I can think of 4 or 5 players in the U14 - U15 age groups that I am personally aware of. If they merge with FCW then the best player or two will still be moving on to NYCFC (if they can manage the commute) but the remaining ones will still be around ... for a very solid team.

You might not "see" it, but it's already happened, so not sure why you're so confident in your opinion.

Merging those two clubs will not be an easy task. Both clubs have very different leadership and structure. And a lot of bad blood.
