On a more positive note, I think Manhattan SC was very smart to get into Super Y, it'll differentiate them from all the other similar NPL and EDP clubs. And, 2 of the strongest players in my kid's age group play for Manhattan. These kids are truly spectacular, and any team-GDA, ECNL or otherwise would kill to have them play for them, so obviously MSC is doing a lot of things right.




Haha truly spectacular players ? What’s a truly spectacular player ? And from the same team to boot. Long Island fishbowl parent at its best.

I think you may have misread the thread. A SUSA parent complimented two players on MSC.

If they were truly spectacular, they would be playing for NYCFC

Kaz did extend an open invitation to one of them and the other would have no problem landing a starting roster spot. Just not worth the travel to be on a big fish team in the small pond of the lackluster NE GDA.
Now if NYCFC could compete against teams more than 2 teams outside of those that Manhattan routinely beat in NPL, it might be worth the trip. Until then, that hour+ commute both ways is better spent on schoolwork.

Thanks Doggie Dad!

A bit much to have expected them to have started building anything this Winter.

Barca practices are starting to look like a SUSA parent meeting lately. Larry's campaign of hate and lies isn't working. Word is spreading and people are coming to see things for themselves, and I've yet to hear anyone say that they weren't impressed. Once official tryouts are announced, it's going to look like Walmart on Black Friday there. I have nothing against SUSA, but the training at Barca is on a whole different level. With girls teams coming soon and Barca's facility starting to make some progress, SUSA will have to scale back their aspirations for expansion or they're going to risk growing too large to be supported by the diminishing player pool. This may be a hard pill for SUSA to swallow because they were poised to take over LI before Barca showed up, but if their ego gets in the way and they don't adjust their plans, they're going to find themselves in trouble.
