    Why is Joshua Perez unattached to a club. I have followed him for a couple of years now. Is ranked number one on TDS for his age group and he went overseas several time to trial with several different clubs. How could somebody with all that opportunity rolled out before him not be attached to a club? But still be on the National team? Where is he getting time on the ball?

    Hey BJ,your question should also apply to two other players, Daniel Barbir and Edwin Lara. Maybe they're continuing to hone their ball handling/playing skills on adult or "senior" teams? Be nice to know!!!
