Expecting immediate results is absurd.
As the homegrown players get better the transfer fees get higher, that money is recycled back into the clubs and academies which in turn create even better players and stronger clubs.
Which still doesn't close the gap to Germany/Spain/France as they are investing more in already better academies and getting more money to continue doing so.
USSF still blocking solidarity payments? Won't mean much until that stops
And the vast majority will continue to come from only there (via some of the stronger youth academies) because there's virtually nowhere else for promising young players to go if they want to play professionally. That's not a good thing.
The structure of the MLS will keep it from ever being relevant.
Solidarity payments go to clubs that aren't pay to play, so pretty much they only go to MLS Academies at the moment
No. There is enough money domestically to make it happen, but unless there are some major changes the MLS will be considered a lesser league both domestically and abroad.
USSF doesn't seem to have a solid plan to advance football in the USA, and as long as that remains the MLS will stay a fringe league. It will make its money because it is in the USA, but talent wise it will never successfully compete and Team USA will continue to be held back for it (unless they fully compete to sending big talents overseas).
MLS will NEVER become number 1.
