From Nova Scotia to Manitoba to Vancouver Island, the Whitecaps are laying down roots all across Canada in a bid to maximize their youth system. Feature on the club's unique regional academy centers, which are starting to payoff with first team signings. https://t.co/waiFSS8d5U
@samstejskal How many academy players starting? Ref, Russel, Melvin, NormanJr, Baldisimo etc... I will say they have had a better academy than TFC and Montreal, but they play their “own”players. The Academy has been among the best in North America for 8-9 years! https://t.co/9mIc6dn8oj
@MariusRovde That's the step they need to take. Should've given attention to it in the piece. Apart from Davies and Teibert (who has played plenty in his career), they haven't given academy kids much of a chance. Will it change? I don't know. That's a different article. Maybe I'll write it.
