Lagerwey on youth development, small market disadvantages

+

Garth Lagerwey talks to MLSSoccer.com in this look at youth development, MLS academies, exceptions and much more — and there are some interesting rules involved here, like the out-of-area exceptions allowed for sides. I'm of the opinion — like a commenter on that article — that it's more important to develop intelligently than in massive numbers. Obviously we're at a numbers disadvantage, but it seems we've got a great setup and we're now producing players who I'm convinced will see regular MLS time in four to five years — once they're out of college. What do you think?
