From what I can remember...

Ismael tandir. 6'5 target forward from our academy left to sochaux. This guy was tearing up the US academy levels. He hasnt done much since he left.

Last I heard, he was in India playing soccer.

Three things on Tandir. One, his height might have given him an advantage at the youth soccer level that the team felt would not have translated to the professional level - which is often the case in sports. Two, RBNY2 didnt exist when he left for Europe. Three, he left for a Ligue 2 team not a club like Dortmund. Youre picking guys and not looking at any of the context of the situations.

I always loved Jay Demerit's story.  Coming out of an unheralded college (for soccer), playing  in the PDL, he goes over to England to try to latch on professionally.  It doesn't go well, and he ends up playing for an amateur team.  They play a pre-season friendly against Watford, he impresses and gets a trial and Watford ends up signing  him.

 

He becomes a rock in Watford's back line for 7 years (may have been captain?), goes up to the Premiership with them, plays in the World Cup.  Ends up coming to MLS and has to retire early due to an injury.

 

Took a shot in Europe and parlayed that into a really nice career.  A career he likely would not have had if he had stayed here in the U.S.

Someone made a documentary about it:

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

Out of curiosity, does RB get anything for this? Solidarity payment or transfer fee? 

Sounds weird for a 14 year old....

i dont think so since there was no contract which is part of the problem.

 

the team has chosen the path to be less restrictive with hopes of attracting the best available talent. this is dumb because if the kid can leave at any time if they get an opportunity from abroad.

then why aren't they making announcements over these solidarity payments and training compensations?

99% of guys wont get the opportunity to go to a dortmund.  at rather let them go in peace so big time prospects like coming here versus doing the Haji Wright and going to the Cosmos and avoiding MLS.  i dont think the smurfs are hurting too bad by letting Gio Reyna go to Dortmund either.  i would bet most parents want to know if their kid is good enough you can get them to europe in multiple ways

Academy players sign agreements when they join this allows the team to collect these payments if they turn pro somewhere else in Europe
