McNamara got a call up to camp but he didn't make the 23 man roster. He last played for FCW in 2008 time frame. Not a good predictor for the "success" of FCW.

But if the new coaching isn't as good as or better then over time it will have a negative impact. Some of the ones who left were well liked.

Also it isn't just about market density. Non MLS clubs cannot keep their top players - they get picked up by MLS clubs. Even just losing a few players to MLS not only hurts team performance but perpetuates the perception that non MLS isn't as good. FCW will continue to lose players to NYCFC and even Red Bulls. Yes it's a big market but there's two free-to-play clubs right in their back yard. Players on the bubble or the ones who don't want to give up HS can go to NYSC, MSC or other solid clubs.

Well, they couldn't possibly know that right now, so at best they're misleading, at worst they're lying.

Well maybe they know they're APPLYING? lol. Take promises like that from any club with massive doses of salt.

They have been telling their families that for years. Fake news.

well NYSC was 1 of only 7 clubs who were granted U15 expanded academy status last year. they have produced 7 USNT players last few years and head was named director/coach of the year last year. I think empty promises more an issue at FC. I think chances pretty good NYSC will eventually get the U16 and u18 academy with that record.

FCW isn't a top club but it isn't bottom of the barrel all the time either. Usually relegation is for consistently underperforming clubs that have been on probation. But the two clubs are very close geographically making it difficult to justify having both

Agree. The other bit you hear from them is that they will have their own fields. Heard that first 5 years ago ... (fields were going to be on the owner's land in Bedford) ... and it still comes up now and again.
