LMSA has developed into a dominating force in the local Cal South recreation soccer program.
Isn't time our city realized that a club program, consisting of 8 to 12 teams, made up of primarily local kids, is what the residents and families of the LM want.
We have the fields, numerous local higher level soccer coaches and trainers and we have the higher level soccer players as well.( all the above, due to the narrow-minded thinking city council, are forced to go elsewhere.)

Yes I think it is time. I think 8 teams is enough. 12 teams is way too many to start.
I kind of think start with the minimum 6 and grow from there.
That way we keep signature and rec flowing nicely.

Too bad the city can not say no.
It is out of their hands it is up to the LMSA league itself and its board members.

Plus we already play club in the spring and travel.

Most leagues in Europe have 20 teams in the table. Major League Soccer has 19 in 2012. Look for MLS to possibly add a 20th team for 2013. ESPN reports MLS has expanded eight times since 2005. Cities looking to add a franchise include a second team in New York, Minneapolis, Miami and Las Vegas

Always the composed, corporate-friendly gentleman away from the game, David Beckham is a fierce competitor on the pitch who has never shied away from telling a referee exactly what he's thinking. This has gotten him in trouble from time to time and as he revealed on Saturday's episode of "The Jonathan Ross show"; it's even gotten him kicked out of a Los Angeles area children's match (7:28 into the video above) just for trying to defend a 7-year-old kid. see on yahoo. Ref. Really over stepped his whistle against 7 yr.old??,. I would have done the same thing... that Ref needed xtra training...

And you would have been sent off like a fool as well. Which is par for you.
The ref was simply following the the Letter of the Law.
Granted he should have used better judgement in his handling of the U8 player, but nobody, not even the great Beckam has the right to yell at a ref because his disagrees with a call

By the way the ref is still officiating matches.

by your response,... You don't have a clue when it comes to being an Official. This Ref is a fool & he can call for real advice. He gives the real Official's a black eye. Never & I repeat never should a 7 year old recieve a Red card. It is as much the Referee's job as it is the Coach's to guide & teach all youth players the game of Soccer & Officiate with the Spirit of the game when Officiating the younger age groups U8 & below. your welcome

I admit the ref screwed up in his judgement, and should have handled it differently.
But at least Beckam was man enough to take his punishment for yelling at and complaining to the referee. Which, by the way, is against the rules of soccer.

He didn't go crying to anybody of authority complaining about how he was kicked out for complaining a call or his team lost because the ref was against him.

By the way for those of you who care about the truth and real facts

It seems Beckam embellished the truth a little.

The incident in question was a U10 boys competitive match, not U8.
The player sent off was standing on the goal line, in the goal and deliberately handled the ball to stop an obvious goal scoring opportunity.
So the player send off was warranted and appropriate.
Now Beckam interferred with the coach/ref discussion after the play by putting his 2 cents in. He did it in a calm manner but still publicly critisizing the ref is not acceptable.
It is true the ref should have ignored him, but hey no one is perfect

LM doesn't have the space. Practice areas are full and the only fields with lights are used for baseball and softball in the spring. Club still runs at full speed in the spring and will need a lot of space. The clubs surrounding the area are close enough to drive to. If they would have called the new club LM Revolution would you have been happy. They have fields and lights that they rent. Big clubs are removing the city names. Whittier in not in front of Revolution, No Whittier Xplosion, no Cerritos infinity anymore it is So Cal, Chelsea is not associated with one city, OC Premier isn't just the city of OJSC Premier. The city name doesn't matter. There are not enough fields in LM. If you can lock in fields create the club, but don't burden the remaining players by taking over fields. If you can get Biola or the high school, start your club. Good Luck, you are in charge. Keep the non profit league and your for profit club trainers separate. You can do it as OC Revolution did. All it takes in money.
