Daryl Grove and Will "Khaleesi" Parchman welcome you to the fourth episode of The TopDrawerSoccer Show, publishing every Wednesday at 6 a.m. Eastern.
Up for discussion:
The Crossfire Premier compensation claim on DeAndre Yedlin's move to Spurs is officially on the FIFA docket. We explain why this could change the shape of American youth soccer.
The pros and cons of pay-to-play — it's not good, but not all bad — and a couple of ideas to fix the system.
We have not one, not three, but two Prospects of the Week today. You'll have to listen to the show to find out who they are.
Questions from the digital mailbag:
Is US Soccer trying get Efrain Alvarez back into the national team fold?
Why can't the U.S. consistently produce national-team quality fullbacks?
What are the top three things a coach looks for in a defensive player?
