A little update from the fields today

Post by HomeAgain on 17/11/12, 06:46 pm

study A little update from the fields today study
Sting S has only one confirmed player departure - moved to SRSA B.
Fever has lost two DDs to FCD Premier in the past few weeks.
Liverpool W also lost two (former Solar Red) girls to FCD Premier.
One FCD A/B player moved to SRSA B.
The roster at FCD (Prem/Palm) should now be about 38+ girls. Parents continue to be told of two "pre" pre-ENCL traveling teams for next year, and if they have enough for third team, THAT team would play in Lake Highlands. From what I hear, no other ENCL clubs talking about a pre-pre-ENCL league.

Just to add to that:

Fever has lost significant players to SRSA as well
And less significant players to other teams

Sounds like FCD parents should drink the kool-aid with caution

WHOH - so, any idea total Fever headcount drop? 2 to FCD, 2 or more to SRSA? More after that? Bummer for SP, he put his heart and soul into that team and I truly respect him for what he built after leaving SRSA.

No No - at FCD you only need to look at their blue jerseys - its "Advocare" - not Kool-aid. drunken
The parents there are great people - the coach is an ever better salesman, and now they have limitless Kool-aid...

You're wrong. Wrong LP team. Don't trust anything you say here now.

Fun, Fun! Lets get two teams of 11 year old girls and travel to play lesser quality teams than we have in our own backyard! Where do I sign my DD up? And can I sign up to baby sit on the trips?

Parents are going to need alot more than kool aid or anything advocare sells to drink after that ride...

Great weekend of weather and soccer with no real surprises, let's keep the post alive. I truly thought there would be some upsets with the 20 minute halves at the DT Fall Festival, no such luck. Maybe some upsets at PT, depending on your team Question Here goes, enjoy and comment as you wish...

DT South - missing a couple of players (I think), still easily beat a field of lower ranked teams in the DT Fall Festival before knocking off Sting M AGAIN in the Final. Can they keep key their top remaining players before select? This is still the Big Red's number one goal and is going to be interesting to see their clubs support?

Cosmos - nice results from PT! TW looks like he holding them together with their top forward still in the fold. Very Happy Can the Cosmos reverse the poaching from their Sting rival with Sting S really struggling to hold roster together and steal players that live in the park cities or north dallas area to join them come select? Question Cosmos are a smaller club competing against the big clubs. Players looking for a team full of good families, coach, and players this team could be what you are looking for. sunny

FCD East - top team for their club easily! cheers Good coaching and real strong group of fast forwards and strong players through roster and getting better and better each week. Another excellent tournament performance from PT with wins against Titans, LP K and W, Cosmos, before losing to LP Dalglish in PK's. Tough loss.

FCD Premiere - lots of "pre-pre-pre-ECNL" promises in their pursuit of recruiting players from other teams. Really don't know how pre-ECNL talk helps at under 10? Should spend more time developing players like sister team. Where is the truth regarding ECNL who knows. Results on the field do not reflect a top ECNL caliber team. Still believe combining with their club version of their "A" East top kids with FCD Premiere better players would make a real strong ECNL team to really get excited about.

Fever - disappointed to hear kids leaving Fever camp. Sad From forum sightings, Fever kids all got the flu and are splitting ranks. Sad Don't see this group coming out of the winter break? Hope I'm wrong. Really like the indies type success stories like the Kicks '01 before them. When they were together, this team were very competitive. Where did their top players go? confused

LP - excellent weekend! Big wins against Solar Blue, Cosmos, AYSES, LP W and FCD East for the championship! cheers This group has a strong nucleus anchored by their CM. They are well coached and play very hard ever time out. This is going to be a top 4 team come select and be a team to watch. Great weekend, congrats! sunny sunny

SRSA - "truth must be told" was correct about the right coaches involved going forward as this group transitions from DM. As far as the truth of the facts, she was flat out wrong! affraid As talked about on this forum for the last several months, AS is taking over the SRSA team and made MC the coach of the new team from an ever growing pool of SRSA players. We all know SRSA will be SRSA. But the new team will be called Question Question Question what you want and should emerge as a LH D1 contender. Like all new teams, MC and his girls will have growing pains. The biggest expectation to deal with will be the constant comparisons to SRSA. Being compared to that team is not fair for any team in the entire '03 division. Best of luck to MC and Solar's new team.


Sting Goodman- another strong team for Sting. Is this Sting's B or C team Question From their strong play this past weekend beating both Mustangs, DT Moreno, before losing and playing hard against two of the top teams in the age group. This could become Sting's B team soon? Idea

Sting M- somewhat disappointing weekend of results. Missed OUT's commentary on not getting better results against mid 25 ranked teams? confused Now this group feels Sting Goodman supporters are "disingenuous" in their post game posts? As Sting's current "A" team, this group should represent Sting Club better and support their sister teams? Were their sub-par results because of the shorter game times, bigger fields or missing key players? Sometime results don't reflect actual game on the field and I'm sure OUT would concur. Still this is a very strong top Sting team carry big expectations for their club and deserve kudos for taking the second best team in the whole age group to PK's. From all reports DT South were better team and deserved top prize. Question

Sting S ( now AG ) - new coach couldn't make it due to other commitments (anybody know where AG was?). So SS had to coach and wanted to leave on a high note. No such luck Sting S got beat by Cosmos after losing to the AYSES Gold? OUCH. AG has lots of "team building" or recruiting to do to get back into the top tier ever again. Do not be surprised that by the time LH rolls around AG's team will be Sting's top team and a top 3 team come select! She is a good coach that has a history of success! cheers


Other thoughts - there is always going to be movement especially this time of year with lots of expectations for some teams and forum bombing of others. bom bom bom There are a lot of quality teams and coaches in this group creating a lot of parity and depth. Come select it will be a battle for the 20 top spots as there are 30 teams that could make it. Still lots of movement to be seen this Winter Break Shocked

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone. Off to the kitchen to start the Thanksgiving preparations...What a Face

Couple of questions:
DTS - lost players, but I also heard they played with top Vitesse studettes this weekend - which would be good additions and make up for the losses - but what does this do to that up and coming indy?

Fever - think this team will survive as long as the coaches DD is in play. Any good coach could build a team around that one - or is she one of the players going to SRSA?

Sting M - Out is OUT - so I guess that team will give the "SRSA" forum treatment - where parents do not post and the lowly usuals can only speculate what is going on...which could be good or bad. Or maybe Out will pick back up the mic at an opportune time?

SRSA - New Coach - MC - Matt Colvin, Southlake / Carroll's girls high school soccer coach?

Further to FlyGirls's questions -
SRSA "A" - Bumby, you are saying AS will for sure take over from DM?
SRSA "B" - This will be MC's team? RC is a great guy - does he stay involved? Practices will split or continue to be joint?

Cosmos had been looking for a keeper for a long time - the DD playing this weekend was stellar. Anyone know if she is part of the team going forward?

From watching an FDC Diaz game this weekend, they play an excellent possession game on their half of the field and the ball does always stay on the ground, but the possession game stops at midfield and they have a very hard time even taking a shot on goal- why? Is it too much for this age, or does a possession offense only work if the other team is playing the same style?

Honestly, after watching 2 of the SS games this weekend at Primetime, I would have to say Skip was the one that was 100% disconnected from the girls and the game. The girls looked good and played hard, as Skip decided to take a seat on player's water bottles and sit silent (almost looked as if he was pouting) most of the games. The next time I saw the SS team play, they were being coached by AG, while Skip took his normal seat on a water bottle. It was great to see AG out there coaching the girls, giving them props on the field, while still demanding their attention when needed. This team has all the pieces in place to continue to be great. I think after watching AG on the field, this may just be the missing piece. Best of luck to this Sting team and enjoy your offseason with the new coach!!

AS is the man for sure. MC has been introduced. Not sure about RC as I am not in the camp, but have inside scoop. Not sure about practices.

My guess on FCD Prem - is they cant take shot, they have no forwards. Possession is possession, who cares what the other team is playing, if you have the ball they don't. Very simple. Very Happy

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I won't go into the details of player departures or arrivals other then there have been both recently, and our team is still practicing and competing. We did take this weekend off to rest after playing in two leagues this Fall. Not much of a winter break though, we will be entering two separate teams in the LP 4v4 and two separate teams in futsal at IAD. If that gives you any indication we still have large enough, and still very talented roster to field an 11v11 team. We always welcome well rounded, talented effective players to come out to our practices (indoor for the winter months), so if you're interested then feel free to send me a PM for the details.

Not sure what to think about the up and coming Indy if it is the coaches dd who may have been guest playing

Fever - think this team will survive as long as the coaches DD is in play. Any good coach could build a team around that one - or is she one of the players going to SRSA?
Agreed!

FCD Premiere - lots of "pre-pre-pre-ECNL" promises in their pursuit of recruiting players from other teams. Really don't know how pre-ECNL talk helps at under 10? Should spend more time developing players like sister team.


I ask myself... How is traveling at this age, playing against Houston, Austin and OK teams that normally are not at the same level as Lake Highlands D1 teams going to be productive. (For the N Tx teams, they would normally be in Lake Highlands. )

Am I crazy to think that extra Futsal, Indoor, ODP, pick up games, playing against local boys teams, skills sessions or what ever your DD prefers might be a just a smidge better than time and $ spent traveling. Extra touches and well, you know,... that sorta, kinda mundane stuff that actually makes for better players.

Perhaps the first year select Parents are being duped into considering it.... Do yourself a favor and inquire with parents that have older DDs that have been through the select process.

Will be interesting to see if the hype for a land grab works ...

Fever - disappointed to hear kids leaving Fever camp. Sad From forum sightings, Fever kids all got the flu and are splitting ranks. Sad Don't see this group coming out of the winter break? Hope I'm wrong. Really like the indies type success stories like the Kicks '01 before them. When they were together, this team were very competitive. Where did their top players go? confused

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I won't go into the details of player departures or arrivals other then there have been both recently, and our team is still practicing and competing. We did take this weekend off to rest after playing in two leagues this Fall. Not much of a winter break though, we will be entering two separate teams in the LP 4v4 and two separate teams in futsal at IAD. If that gives you any indication we still have large enough, and still very talented roster to field an 11v11 team. We always welcome well rounded, talented effective players to come out to our practices (indoor for the winter months), so if you're interested then feel free to send me a PM for the details.

Definitely hope this group can last through the Winter and stay intact for the Spring. Always a wildcard on when and how they will step up at games and gave some teams this past Fall a surprise. Looking good in the 5 spot of the latest rankings, and as stated above would hate to see a Top 10 not make it out of the Winter.

Let's hear it for the Indy's cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers

DT-"South" - another excellent season for this talented team and coach. Lots of questions to be answered come select for this team and club. Does HN & the Texans Club work to make this team the marquee Dallas Texans Team of the age group? If so, who will coach? GA or RS or RM or other? Will the Dallas Texans consolidate other strong players towards this team within the club? Or does the club move the top core players from South to the Dallas side and work to make another top Dallas Texans team like years past come select? Whatever ever happens - I am sure HN will put his best '03 players players the club has in this age group to one team and the Texans Empire will be well represented come select! If not, HN could always get a top team from a rival and leave DT South alone?

Cosmos - as a small independent club from the economically challenged Very Happy Park Cities area, TW has always beat the odds to place a LH D1 come select. Another up & down season for this team. Questions come select are simple; can they keep their core girls especially stud striker from being poached from their nemesis Sting? Or, can they poach players from the Sting factory of teams and complete roster with quality depth? Going to be fun to watch.

FCD - another solid season of play this fall with some great results! FCD will continue to try and poach what they can from their competitors and hope their top players hold and stay put. Lots of players playing for quite a few FCD teams in the age group to choose from to build "top" team come select. Who will be the coach? Will MGrubb coach this team come select or will the Diaz keep this ship and along with his ECNL teams? Hard to make games when you are out of town. Should be interesting.

FCD-East - like years past Coach JH will put together a very good team around a stud forward. It's going to be interesting to see which FCD team will be the better team come select. My bet is on East. For the club, its all good either way and FCD are in good shape going forward with ECNL to come.

Fever - another independent team from the Tarrant County area that had an up & down year, starting real strong and ending on a real low. Can this team keep their stud striker? Will they hold together at all come select. This team has a ton of questions regarding future than most, but hopes are they are still playing come select! Gave some teams a run for their money and were very competitive. One to keep an eye on come Spring, lots of variables here.

LP - the only big club that is NOT an ECNL member with tons of teams & players that currently has a very good top team. Lots of good questions to be answered come select? Does LW hand off top team to CPulp? Does this group combine all the top players from the other LP teams to form a LP super team? How will they respond to not being any ECNL member and keep elite players beyond first year of select. At the very least, for the first year of select, LP should have a top team .

SRSA - where do you start? Most dominant team by far over in the age group for sometime now! Where do they go from here? They will have a new coach coming this Spring with AS? Should we expect some "new" additions of other great players wanting to join before select? Most likely. Do they follow the Texans 02 from last year and only play boys next spring? With so many players and having a team that just played in Silver division can they put together another elite team that can actually compete with the top five in the age group in LH D1? If so, who will coach that one? No doubt this will be an elite team for years to come that will only get better and represent NT on the national stage as they get older. Going to be fun to watch.

Sting S & Sting M - with low roster numbers on both these teams now, do these two very good teams combine and become one? I know Out would like to see that! According to OUT, this will be "the top team" of the group? scratch Still not convinced on that one. If so, who will be the coach this team come select? affraid I am sure the powers of Sting are going to figure it out and Sting will be represented come select as one of the better teams to beat!

Sting W - will only continue to get better with their committed coach. Where do they add players from? Sting Dallas or from other Tarrant teams in the area? Most likely, other TC teams. By select RD will put together a solid D1 select team that will always be ready to play.

What other teams does everyone consider to be on the rise and ones to watch? Question

Couple of closing predictions that historically happens over the next 6/8 months before select ... Teams & coaches will actually change clubs, especially independents to one of the bigger ECNL clubs. Also, the top teams usually get EVEN stronger as "top" players from lesser teams want to play on top teams leaving 2 to 3 really dominant teams within the age group, while the rest will be very competitive amongst themselves. Good luck to all!! cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers


Here is some intel for you from a VERY reliable source. Pre ECNL most likely will happen at 11 through U13 but only as an option and only the top two teams from each ECNL Program the rest will play Girls Classic League, this is not an FCD league as other mentioned. Here is your big Thanksgiving Present and the WOW or OUCH of the week, JD is more than likely to leave FC for a better Fit. He interviewed yesterday for a College Program and is likely to take the job and leave FC.... Question is who steps up next? MG???? IMO, its a big change going from JD to MG...will Parents stick around and drink the advocare MG has to offer??

What about the double-secret pre-pre-ecnl? That exists right? I really just need to know who to make the check out to. I don't want to look like a dumbass and not have my DD pre-pre-involved in something that might exist 4 years from now.

Now this is hot off the presses, where are all the FCD folk on this one? if JD leaves and MG is really to take over the Prem team, that is a huge culture change. Now the JD culture just started this past Fall so not much to change IMO, but MG is a totally different coach and in the past has built his teams from scratch, recruited, whatever - inheriting a team is not his MO. confused MG is a fine coach, will he even dare to step into the 03 age group? affraid

I want to hear more about the Pre-ECNL, is it the same and Jr. ECNL or is it the pre-cursor to it? Question Question

I agreee with EyeSnapPhotos - cash please cheers cheers cheers

I really think he has a legitimate source. That would be huge blow to the FCD program from ECNL down, not just the 03s. Lots of gaps to fill if JD is really leaving.

With the shake up FCD did with the MSnell coaching release and bringing in JThomas from LP on the boys side and what a stir that caused and still causes today. Not sure how JD departure would affect the girls side, just know that a huge gap to fill. Seems like the FCD club in general is a bit convoluted and disarray from top to bottom. From the CEO in his weird situation in NYC, to letting go 2 homegrown players, no professional women's team in the new league and on the club side just lots of instability and unknowns. Lots to clean up the rest of 2012 and into 2013.
