    Wow!!! Cali is the only state in the US with soccer players. Here we go again with the same BS. And we wonder why our national teams sucks

    16/36 (44%) from California, 4/36 (11%) from Florida, and 16/36 (44%) from the other 48 states (none from D.C.). That doesn't sound like a good scouting job.

    Definitely looks like California bias. Do they visit Michigan? St. Louis? Weak effort by the scouts.

    The system is broken. They continue to take kids who are physically a presence( speed and size) over technically sound players. Many of the ODP players can not use their non dominate leg for anything other then standing.. . There skill set with some is not up to par but they are fast, big or strong... .Cruyff said smaller players can become more talented players because they use their skill and mind over physical gifts.Xavi,Iniesta and Silva come to mind. I do not use Messi because though he is small he is super fast..On the USA side Freddy Adu has shown glimpses of being that kind of player but can not seem to get anytime on USMNT..

    Does everyone take the job as US coach just to get their son playing time?
