I just don't understand how such a talented team is getting beat so badly at this level. It doesn't make sense to me. That team was even more experienced than the ones we've been playing before at that level (Cirjan and Taylor-Hart both in it).
Don't want to be alarmist as it's very early on but it would seem either there is a problem with the coaching or perhaps we've overrated a bit the quality of this group? If you just look a that team on paper given how we rate all these players you would think, if they are as good as we think, they would actually dominate this level, not get dominated.
I think the coaching is a big problem. Maybe we have overestimated some of the talent, but from what I have seen, guys like Taylor Hart, Monlouis, Cirjan, Patino, Awe, Bandeira, Flores and Hutchinson are just as talented as any other group from the academy I ever followed. This particular group has a pretty good balance with defensive, midfield and attacking prospects. Which makes it even more concerning.
