  • Tweet du jour: Eddie Johnson

    "I'm literally watching the u-17 girls @theECNL college showcase here in Orlando Florida and I can't believe the level of play of girls in our country at 17 years old technically and tactically it's embarrassing and disappointing to the sport. I'm literally looking at these games and I don't know how these college coaches can watch and what are they looking for when the ball is in the air 95 percent of the time. Soccer is a creative game and requires intelligent players. There's nothing intelligent in watching a player smack the the ball as hard as they can up the field when they have time and space. This is shocking. I really feel bad watching all these clubs steal these parents hard earned money and aren't developing their kids properly."
