Taylor Rockwell and William "Will" Parchman welcome you to the third episode of The TopDrawerSoccer Show!
Up for discussion:
Schalkemericans! What does the upcoming season have in store for Weston McKennie, Haji Wright and Nick Taitague?
Youngsters in Europe - Comparing and contrasting the situations of young Americans like Cameron Carter-Vickers, Matt Miazga, Timothy Weah, and Christian Pulisic. Plus, what's the ideal situation for a future USMNT-er to find his footing?
Prospect of the Week — Her (hint, hint) name is revealed in the show. So you'll have to listen to find out.
Listener questions from the TopDrawerSoccer mailbag:
1. It has been noted that the U.S. suffers from a lack of full-time scouts inside the United States. What are the repercussions of this, and how has the USSF been trying to solve it?
2. Is the ODP system the only (or best) way for youth in remote areas to be discovered?
3. How do I know if I am wasting money on my kids coaching? What should I be looking for in terms of growth?
