This is an updated look at the Gameday Power Rating with mostly everyone with12 games in the books and only 6 to go later this Spring. Also a look at who is likely to win promotion, and who is squarely in the dreaded relegation zone.

DIVISION 1
5.3 Chelsea East looking even stronger.
4.2 Dallas Kicks busy getting extra touches.
3.7 FCD Premiere regrouping and ready to run.
3.3 FCD Kang fighting for a Top 4 spot.
-0.2 DT Faber not going away quietly.
-0.6 FCD Pino just hanging in the middle.
-1.5 Solar still putting up a fight.
-1.9 FC Premiere staying out of relegation zone?
-2.9 DT Rangel facing threat of relegation.
-4.0 DT Badii - no offense but they didn't earn their way into D1.  
The Texans and their strategy to try to do everything this year has really watered down their Brand as far as the 04s go. Their downward trend points toward mass defections in the open window.

DIVISION 2
6.2 Falls Town as virtually promised is moving on up.
5.8 FCD ETX- told you they were a team to watch!
4.3 Rayos can maybe make things interesting?
3.7 FC Premiere may be staying put in D2?
.....
-6.1 Liverpool couldn't keep their best players...
-7.7 FCD Red will re-group in D3.

DIVISION 3
7.2 FCP Dynamos will transition and make a nice addition to D2.
5.0 Dallas Roma in 3rd but 2nd best performance- real threat to earn promotion.
3.5 FCD Gold
3.5 Barcelona
The following teams need to improve in head to head play and hope for a little luck to keep from being relegated out of the Classic League;
Inter United
Dallas Cosmos (will resurface as who?)
FCD N
FCD W
Impact Murador
Athletico Español (where will their good players resurface?)

Stay safe out there on those turf High School football fields and the wise ones will save something for the Spring push!

The "spring season" is here and in just the next 30 days, it will be clarified who will unfortunately be relegated, who will be staying put, who will be the TOP 4 participating in the Frontier League next year, and who will be the Classic League Champions!

Predictions asside, here are each teams remaining "strength of schedule". As each team is currently placed 1st through 10th, the numbers show the remaining six games vs. for example the 2nd place team/ the 7th place team... etc.

What is exciting is that we currently have four Top 100 ranked Gotsoccer teams in Div. 1:

CHELSEA EAST #27 Nationally ranked
5/7/10/6/8/4

DALLAS KICKS #41 Nationally ranked
2/5/9/3/7/10

FC DALLAS PREMIERE #87 Nationally ranked
9/8/6/2/10/7

FC DALLAS KANG
2/6/8/9/5/1

TEXANS FABER #75 Nationally ranked
1/2/7/8/4/6
(Statistically the second most difficult schedule)

FC DALLAS PINO
7/4/3/1/9/5
(Statistically the third most difficult schedule)

SOLAR HEDGES
6/1/5/10/2/3
(Statistically the most difficult schedule)

FC PREMIERE FORZI
10/3/4/5/1/9

TEXANS RANGEL
3/10/2/4/6/8

TEXANS BADII
8/9/1/7/3/2

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!

A big slate of games on the schedule, but an even bigger storm on the radar. Today's games are likely a wash, so we'll focus on Sunday's (go to early Mass) noon kickoff.

DIVISION 1
Solar Hedges vs. Texans Badii is interesting in terms of the points race out of the relegation zone. Badii is coming on strong with 2 wins in its last 2 games.

FCD Pino vs. Chelsea East who look to avenge their only loss of the year. We'll find out if Pino has cracked the code, or if Chelsea just had an off day?

FCD Premiere vs. Dallas Kicks who look to hold off Dane to maintain the #2 spot in hopes of closing in on Chelsea East. FCDP looking over their shoulder at Kang?

DIVISION 2
FCD ETX vs. FC PREMIERE will say a lot in terms of who will win that second spot for promotion. Look for both to "leave it on the field".

DIVISION 3
FC Dallas Gold, Inter United and Roma all need results this weekend as they are tightly embattled for that coveted second spot for promotion.

Stay dry and don't mingle under trees.

CRUNCH TIME??
How do you finish (40) Div. 1 games and the Dallas Cup, by the May 2nd kickoff date of the State Cup?

And don't count on the weather cooperating this Saturday to give anyone a head start.

The answer- just cram it in!
Some teams will play on the 22nd, 24th, 27th and 30th. But the Kicks and FCD Premiere who will be coming off of the Dallas Cup will have the extra challenge of playing on 24th, 25th, 27th and 30th.

Get the Bengay and club passes ready because the State Cup waits for no one, (in theory, right?)

Here's an updated look at how things stand in Division 1 with the four remaining games to be played in the next 10 days.

AT THE TOP
CHELSEA EAST plays on the 24th, 25th, and meet FCD Kang on the 27th which last time was a draw. Their season finale on the 30th is vs. FCD Pino which was their only loss. Can they finish strong on their march to what could be an impressive 3rd consecutive Classic season as a #1???

DALLAS KICKS play on the 24th. 25th, 27th and with a potentially meaningful finale vs. FCD Premiere. Bragging rights and recruitment talking points are on the line.  

FC DALLAS PREMIERE also play on the 24th, 25th, 27th and on the 30th in that big finale. Can they reestablish their identity or will unmet expectations  completely blow this team apart in the offseason? Till I die??

Notice that the League is giving the Kicks and FCDP a couple days off extra rest coming off of the Dallas Cup which is appropriate.  It's not really fair to say that either team was overwhelmed in the tournament, but posting goal differentials of 3/5 and 2/5, and a combined 1-3-2 record says that even expending max effort they likely fell short of even their own expectations. For the rest of us it would've been great to see one of our own advance in this level of international tournament- to use as a type of barometer of our collective skill level.

OPINION- while we're on the topic let's review the Dallas Cup selection process, as it reflects the collective  thought process of the Leagues and tournament organizers that handed out bids.
Classic League awarded the Dallas Kicks a bid based on the standings at the end of the first 9 games which is appropriate.  It is unknown by us as to the rationale of FC Dallas Premiere bid since they were in 3rd place after 9 games so it wasn't the League?  So a handshake between the Dallas Cup and the Franchise made it happen?  Politics, whatever?

Then remember the genius move by the Dallas Texans who awarded the Austin Texans a "non-North Texas" bid? Well, they posted a 3/9 goal differential and an  0-3 record. Does this affirm their "non-North" decision? Was having an additional South Texas team the real difference maker to this prestigious global tournament? Baffling.

The other South Texas team was the RGV Toros who earned their bid if memory serves correct in last year's Memorial Day tournament. A quick glance shows that they have been struggling ever since, but seemingly played way over their heads posting a 4/2 goal differential and a 1-0-2 record. Compare that to the North Texas DA's? Solar 2/4 GD 1-2-0 and Texans 2/3 also 1-2-0. The only outlier is of course FC Dallas who looked tremendous. But where is it written that all of the North Texas DA's must get an auto invite? Don't get us started on which other North Texas teams could probably beat the weaker DA's?

In non-related to North Texas rant, how in the world did Oklahoma's West Side Alliance get in? Free comps at the casinos for the organizers? Another was TSF Academy from New Jersey? Mob involvement?? Look, I guess it's cute to have a team from Canada participate but C'mon Man! And just because a team is from Mexico, Angeles Soccer Elite- going scoreless. Just, wow?

Coming up next we'll look at WHO'S AT THE BOTTOM and possibly on their way out of D1. Also an updated look at the D2 race to promotion.
