Your view is completely naive. Us soccer has been involved with Women's soccer since the beginning and has invested more in Women's soccer than every other country in the world.

US Soccer is awful at development. You have to understand they are in this to make money. Lots of money. They will tank the women like they tanked the men.

Outch! Someone must be really disappointed not making the DA team. It's Ok - develop in ECNL and try again next year.

The reason the women's program is struggling is the rest of the world is catching up to it--not because of any change in training for American girls. (And it's something that we, the defending world champs in women's soccer, are concerned about the health of the program only two years out from winning the WC).

But I'm sure you've got a club and a program that will single-handedly Fix Everything That Is Wrong With American Soccer, if we just put you in charge and got rid of the money-grubbing coaches and bureaucrats that are obviously holding the program back. Right?
Struggling is an understatement. Watch the 2 games USWNT played against Sweden. Bootball galore! And the media glamorizes the kick and chase - you don't think kids notice that and think to themselves "look at those players, I'm going to play like that". Women's soccer in the USA is in a downward spiral big time.

And all they've been able to do is make it worse. Just like the Timbers in Oregon...

Their success is based on athleticism. The USWNT has some of the top athletes in the country where other countries did not. Now you have other countries starting to field top athletes....combine that with top training methods and now you have a USWNT that is behind.
Wait a minute, I thought athleticism had nothing to do with success in soccer??? You lemmings on this chat board said that technical dribbling through and around cones was what made a great soccer player and team. Now you got me all confused

But wait - I thought DA was going to fix everything?

Ten years and we've barely moved the dial. The best young talent to emerge recently, Pulisic, didn't follow a traditional DA path. Other young players are bailing, or at least trying to bail, and go abroad. International players increasingly take top college roster spots. It's about leadership and coaching. A small country like Iceland can emerge on the world stage in seemingly little time, and it's all driven by leadership and coaching. We have very little of both.

USSF wants 1) control 2) money. In that order.

The goal is to make money. They don't care about anything else.
