Dallas Cup

So this tournament has been around for years and attracted serious talent. One of the U19 groups this year includes United, Real Madrid, Monterey, and FC Delco (Bobby Convey's old club). I've always felt that the real strength of the game in the US lies more with the elite clubs (that now feed MLS, IMG, and Europe) and less with colleges. Regardless, would love to see if any of this shows up on FSC. Rock the Crossbar


  • I agree that it would be great to see some of this. I remember years ago, the youth team of Giggs, the Nevilles, Butt, and maybe Becks played in this and Paul Gardner reported on it for World Soccer Mag. But it was Scholes who apparently stole the show at this tournament and got everyone's attention. What year would that have been I wonder? I just remember how Gardner went on and on about how Scholes would be a fixture in the England team for years and how he would grow into being one of the most impressive Man United players ever. It must have been an experience seeing all those players as boys.

    I don't like Gardner who bangs on and on about how crap the game is now days and how it pains him that Americans look to Europe and not to South America for their influences and how neglectful the USSF is when they don't include Latin American immigrants, etc, etc, etc. Strictly a moany miserable sod he is. But he was right about Scholes.

  • That United team won the FA Youth Cup in 92 so must have be there or thereabouts.
