Strangely quiet...

Post by NoFanOfDrama on 25/02/15, 01:55 pm

You know, I expected the regular cast to start up the rhetoric when the season started, but we have nothing. Zip, zilch, nada.

Also, it seems Sting G has disappeared from the GotSoccer rankings...any speculation why?

I hear they are splitting up all their 03 teams into a giant pool to play where ever needed, under what ever name and what ever coach or what ever league.

Yes, all in the name of pre-ECNL. And hey, maybe some other 03 teams will move up to the 02 division next year. Wouldn't that be nice. I can already hear the Solar Red girls singing "Reunited and it feels so good...."

LOL...So Sting G thinks they have no competition in the 03 ranks and have moved up to 02?  

Their record HARDLY reflects domination like the SRSA team did.

Is Jessie selling his "we need to play elsewhere" snake oil like he did at FCD?

I don't think they've officially moved up. I know they are still playing scheduled games against the 03 D1 teams. Their first Spring game ended in a draw against Sting Hilton (1-1) after beating them last season 4-nil. Who knows, maybe their top pool players were helping sister teams.

Is JD even still coaching that team? No clue why they are showing up in the 02's, they've only played one tournament in the 02's that I can tell.

I can only assume it's quiet because much like every other age group that hits this point parents have woken up to the realities of what the soccer world is really like and most have come to grips that their stud 9 year old isn't quite the stud 12 year old. I would imagine that by this time next year you won't have too much chatter on the 04 board either.

There are no team moving clubs right now so nothing to talk about there. No teams that are imploding so there's nothing to talk about there. The second half of the season just started so there's really nothing to talk about there either unless you play for a team that won and want to brag about winning a game.

About the only interesting thing to even speculate about is who will the D'Feeters and the Texans try to steal so they can actually have a top team for next year heading into ECNL? Other than that don't expect much.

GrandTX, agree on the 'Feet since they don't currently have a D1 team. However I think Texans still have 2 D1 teams and I figure odds are they will have at least one or two next season.

The usual suspects always start off the season with a pre-season "who's going to wind up where" or at the very least, the weekly predictions (those are always good entertainment).

Not seeing those was kind of strange this week.

It doesn't help you guys that flygirl and c&r doesn't post on here anymore. That always made it interesting.

As long as the 04s still have GO99 on there, they'll be all right.

Sorry to disappoint guys, but I'm still here, just trying to stay "under the elephant." Very Happy

We aren't really doing anything, so I can just keep lurking. Suspect

I'll be moving up to the 03 board next year. Tired of listening to the 04's whining about losing to us.

That's TWICE now I've been thought about!

Give me a call on Friday and I'll let you know what games I feel like should be played this weekend, so I don't waste anyone's time by abandoning a game due to some sniffles and everyone's discomfort. Very Happy

RWD, I'm sure at least one if not both of the the Texans team will remain in DI. With LP K a lock for dropping out that leaves one more spot available (if I still remember the correct relegation schedule). Right now that leaves four teams trying to avoid that last spot, two Texans teams, Fever, and Sting H. My comments about the Texans and D'feet have more to do with trying to get an influx of talent in prep for ECNL. Solar is set, with SRSA and Solar Gold. They will be loaded. Other than Solar though I don't really see any other club that's really too established for the ECNL push. FCD has one good team in Premier, Sting has Sting G but that experiment this year hasn't really produced the overwhelming results I think any of them hoped, and I'm not sure combining the two Texans teams would really move the needle much on the 03 landscape. There's still a ton of talent outside the ECNL clubs and playing outside the 03 landscape right now. Next year should be very interesting.

Turfy can be as just as abrasive as the next guy, well maybe not the aforementioned guy.

Wonder where the 2 03's playing on the 02 team will land- assuming that they will play ECNL?

My DD and 2 others from our team are attending these tryouts for exactly the reason Herradura describes.  Worst case, its some good training...

Went well, in the sense that it was some great training for the girls. Got to train with a number of the very best in NTX and built confidence by doing well in "scrimmage" type drills against those girls.
