IIRC FCD had 1 line up with like 7 players below 20 at 1 point last year.


Link? Closest I saw was that FCD played 7 home-growns on June 22nd, and just signed their 27th HG: nhttps://www.fcdallas...value-fc-dallas

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

Are we supposed to be impressed by this... I get it, happy for the kid. But does this improve the team?

yes because maybe Tolkin U17 player is the LB#2 instead of Buck.  

 

Who doesn't want more Young DPs and annoyed Hamlette isn't getting it done and $$$ not there.

 

But yes this improves the team.

No, I do not believe hes going to improve the team in 2020. I saw him a few times last year and he was far from being physically mature enough at the RB II level.

Im always happy when we sign young local guys to the roster. Im hopeful he turns out well.


The New York Red Bulls previously kicked around Major League Soccer as the MetroStars with limited success. But after transforming under a new banner in 2005, the Red Bulls have become a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference. The club has made leaps of progress since its previous incarnation and now has its focus on bringing the league title to New York.

I'll just be satisfied if he ends up being the most successful Chatham native in club history...

 

But how many Walsh Cups has he won?

Seeing Red Minute 22 Tolkin - per David Gass

http://www.seeingred...-mlssoccer-com/

 

Tolkin - Most skilled player to come through RB2.  Read game very high skill.  

 

Top 3 players to come through academy - other 2 players Tyler  off chart athlete and read game ability and Chris Gloster who is now at PSV. 

 

Tolkin -   Has ability to be USMNT.  Skillful enough that he impressed Grella.

 

Probably not factor in 2020 for 1st team.  LB good start as it simplifies game for you keeps game in front.  Then shift to DM.

 

Stroud - work rate Valot with skill of BEZ

Lema - work hard.  Very clean
