Relegated to D2 and D3 Empty Relegated to D2 and D3

Going to D3 the Liverpool Carragher and East Texas Wildcatters. Wildcatters got only one win which was against a Solar Martinez team that felt they already had the game won so they started a lot of their bench players and were coached by the assistant coach.

Going to D2 are a bunch of teams that fought hard, but just could not put it together against the top 10. Rush is getting pretty close, but should stay in D1. Great coach, but a lot of weird losses or ties. FC Dallas Suarez started off strong then suffered really bad defeats against teams they should of played better against. No amount of yelling by the coach could influence the team to play harder for him. The Dallas Texans teams are pretty much where people thought they were going to be. Lost too many kids to DA from the two top DT teams last year. The two Solar teams did not show up. Volkan pretty much was out of it from the start, but everyone says Volkan is a good coach. He is in the running for the new 07 ECNL team along with Martinez, McKinney, and Vincent. Heard from a lot of opponents that played Solar Martinez that he had way too many bone headed coaching mistakes that made many people not understand what was going on. Plus Martinez has a number 10 that is a complete ball hog and combined with a coach that does not care what he does means they were destined to be relegated. Talking to parents from the Celtics team this past weekend they were laughing at Martinez's inability to coach the players. The Celtics are close to the top 10, but having a real hot head big kid playing center defender that likes to get red cards throwing temper tantrums has to be frustrating. He has the most red cards by far then anyone else in D1 Classic.

The top 10 teams are really strong. Talk that a lot of kids that left teams are going to be returning. Word is that Pedro is stocking up lots of kids for the move to 11v11. He will have a full roster of talent that decides to either leave DA or not go the ECNL route. Solar McKinney is in the run for ECNL too, but if he keeps his team together and adds DA dropouts back to his team then it can be even stronger then the DA or ECNL team. Legends will be back and still a good top 5 team as will Rebels. Hopefully the Rebels coaching staff and the kids can learn not to be racist when losing against teams with African American players on them. Rush has a strong coach and some good team players. Might get a few of the DA cast offs to help them also. Having a coach that develops kids is a big draw.

Interesting observations, some spot on. Do we know what clubs will have an ECNL team and who (or when) we’lll know who coaches them?

Was told Liverpool, FC Dallas, Dallas Texans and Solar. No idea yet on coaches yet. Until things are announced then it is only speculation.

we will see a lot of these coaches' loyalty tested as they will have to decide between the kids that stayed with them or the ones returning from DA. will tell the parents a ton about their coaches and clubs. this is probably unprecedented for North Texas since so many DA teams were added.
07 age group is a cluster.

Connell thinks, or thought, that his 07 team would become ECNL. Personally, I’d love to see him try that and continue to get his butt handed to him every week. He’s a miserable human being.

Thanks.

Unfortunately, my son has been on his team this year. He says the right things when he thinks he has to. He also can probably coach, but only when he thinks it’s important enough to expend his energy. He’s really good at blaming 11 and 12 year olds for his shortcomings as a coach as well. Those are about the only nice things I can think of to really say.

For the big clubs these are just slots, correct?

McKinney could move to the ECNL and Volkan could take the Solar D1 slot.

FC Dallas could swap out one of their D1 slots with Suarez and move another team to D2.

Looks like the Texans won't have any D1 options next year.

And with all of the DA roster adjustments happening, it seems that if you want to go the Classic route your kid might be better off playing for an independent club.

the 07 age group is unprecedented for north texas soccer. lot of kids are going to be left out. they didn't think the extra DA teams through. now all these kids are going to come back with 10 less teams in classic. might see lots of kids sitting on benches. like I mentioned earlier- you will see how loyal your coach/club really are.

I don't think there will be as many kids as you think. Majority of the kids leaving the DA teams will be '08's. I agree that the added DA teams were not thought through with the reduced teams in U13

There will be there 30 teams in Classic. With expanded rosters, there should be plenty of opportunity for kids. The parents will be the ones looking to get on a D1 team! 

I am curious if DA parents who will be looking for a team felt like the move was worth it. Has the development been better than where they were in the prior from a coaching perspective and not just playing with "better" kids?

McKinney getting Solar ECNL is the most logical result considering the talent already on the team and how well liked the coach is with the team. Volkan getting D1 can happen, but his 07 teams have not lived up to their expectations even last year when they had a couple of parents with the DA or nothing attitude for their boys. They say Volkan is a good coach so I could see him getting that based on his reputation. The other D1 Solar coach Martinez does not develop players and has had several players leave his 06 and 07 teams. Parents and kids have made numerous complaints about him so that could hold him back from getting a D1 team and ECNL.

No word yet about FC Dallas ECNL or if Suarez will get a D1 spot. He is another coach with a bad attitude and a reputation for not developing players. Very unapproachable and screams at the boys during the games to try to motivate them. Keeps losing good players year to year, because of his poor attitude and FC Dallas knows it.

Rumors mostly about Dallas Texans ECNL. Their top teams are getting pushed out of D1 and should not fair well in D2 the next year. There is talk of Connell since he coaches the 06 ECNL team and there is also talk of Salazar. Judging from a disgruntled parent on this board Connell is not a good choice. The issue some people have with Salazar is his age and feel that he is already coaching way too many teams. He has an 06 team, 07 DA team and 08 team.

Heard nothing about Liverpool ECNL or even if they are still doing one. They have one D1 team that is in last place. Liverpool Owen because D2 Solar East. I am sure they will try to pull players from the D1 teams folding and pray players come out to try out.

I heard most of the kids that won’t be invited back to DA will be offered spots on the ECNL team at their club. Remember ECNL players can still play in Classic. It could likely be a “separate” team from an existing Classic team that has some dual rostered players, right?

This is correct. ENCL players could dual rosters, and most of the clubs will work to retain the talent leaving DA by offering ECNL.

Dallas RUSH will most likely get the W this weekend (considering the rain holds up) against Volkan, and I see it quite more difficult for NTX Celtic to get a win against an FCD ETX that has improved these past few weeks. Saying that - RUSH will stay in D1.

Texans are going to take the extra DA boys from combining the two DA teams and put them with the current D1 team and dual roster that into a 30+ kid conglomerate of D2/ECNL teams.
