    After 5 years he decided it was time to stop draining his families resources and make sure he could help support his kids and give them a future. If that's what you want to call selling out, so be it.:rolleyes:

    The dude who writes topdrawersoccer.com.

    Who is arguably the best youth soccer writer in U.S.

    Use the guy's name. Anyone could do a search and find it out anyway.

    What's with the coy nonsense?

    I googled Robert Ziegler and still don't know what he is doing now.

    Someone posts a genuine question and he gets juvenile responses from people who could better have spent their time just giving the information.

    Robert posted 2 days of U18 mega camp report and just stopped. I just hope everything is OK.

    per Gers post on his old site top drawer soccer:

    Technical Delays
    by Robert Ziegler 1/12/2008

    Nothing has changed. The company as you knew it has ceased, and the new version of this site will soon be appearing at the United States FC and SoccerCapital sites, with coverage of elite youth soccer, Players to watch and other features.

    A technical issue on the transfer of my material and the URL means the "switch" won't happen until later in the month. But everything else in the New Beginning article holds true.

    Thank you for your patience

    The switch should be happening soon....hopefully

    Go to:


    Gers first post from the Bradenton camp is up on the site...apparently since he is an employee now the site does not show that he has authored the article. I briefly scanned the site and looks like this is the only entry so far but it is good to see that there is some signs of "life' from Rob on his new site.

    Rob...if you are out "there" please let us know what's up...all the best!!
