Agreed. But, seems like a long shot for FCD to and these others to be included now. The Frontier League of GA will be announced this week as well as some additional information about the league. We'll see where it goes.

I have to agree 100% with you,  the  default league in Texas seems is ECNL now. The advantage is definitely tilted to ECNL now. The numbers say it all.  8 Texas clubs are fielding their no 1 teams in ECNL while just 3 clubs no 1 team seem to entertain the GAL

LADoubleTT2000 wrote:Thank you.  There is talk of ECNL adding additional clubs to the conferences including Texas Conference from former DA clubs which have supposedly already comitted to GA. Both leagues would be affected. Whether that happens this year or next or never, who knows. But seems that there is nothing 100% set as of now in either leagues, IMO.

Durian wrote:LA- I can understand GAL being in Flux, they are a new league on top of that they are having to figure out how to deal with the current pandemic situation which can't be easy and kudos for them to get it going.

Just curious how or why do you think ECNL is in flux? To me they seem to be the default league for now, I wouldn't consider that in Flux. Of course things could change in a split second.

Also congrats on your GG making it to the big leagues! Thats awesome!!

It seems likely that ECNL is indeed betting on all the talent consolidating in one league, just not the way Lonestar, Dash, and FC Dallas might hope.

Based on the swirling player movement rumors (perhaps due to a lack of a defined plan at this point in time from those 3 clubs), it seems the bet is a sound one.

My guess at this point is they keep ECNL at the existing 10 for this upcoming season, and then perhaps let in Lonestar or FCD in 2021-22 (maybe as replacements for underperforming clubs) if they prove they are still worthy (and if those clubs decide they still want ECNL instead of GAL).

How long was ODP around before ECNL came into the picture? How long did GDA last? Pardon my laziness if its already been answered.

Yeah, seems that way in terms of consolidation. Banking on talent leaving DA for ECNL. GA is supposed to announce the Frontier Conference today or tomorrow and more information regarding the leagues plans for showcases and affiliation with the MLS/NWSL as well.

Speculation swirling here that Lonestar girls will be in ECNL next year.  Apparently the Texas Conference will be 12 teams for next year.  Assumption is that FC Dallas is the other team getting in.

Would be surprised if FCD is in ECNL next year unless something changed literally last minute. GA Conference announced tomorrow and FCD was in as of today.

I think you’ll find yourself being surprised. And it’s the right tactical maneuver for ECNL. Don’t know if GA League is viable in Texas without FC Dallas, and ECNL is much stronger adding a top 5 National club. One more team likely to join to make it an even 12.

My agenda  on this thread was to promote ECNL and stir the pot . The tactics were horrible but the end result was what i wanted to see 5  strong DFW ECNL teams instead of the split 4 top teams from Sting, Texans , Solar , Feet No 1 teams in ECNL and fcd no 1 team in GAL
Big Ern , clarkie is such a good geezer. i meant to type Chris Ring and trust me he has quite a reputation

"There is no development at fcd", "GAL run by fcd, who have never developed players on girls side", "Good luck in developing your kiddo without being challenged at all" ... ummm  scratch

"You should have clearly stayed out this conversation as this is not applicable in your case . This is for iu14, thru u17s for upcoming season cole", "They could loose lonestar and dash players plus ECNL is smart , they cut the throat f this league by letting lonestar or Dash.", "And now adding a second team because they are desperate and trying not loose their jobs and survive." ... WTF?!

"Don't drink that fcd coolaid." ... Dude.  FCD hasn't even made an announcement yet, let alone let a single girls player or family know where they'll be playign next year.  Thus, the "coolaid" (Shocked) hasn't even been made yet Sir.

"GAL is a last ditch effort by Chris Clarke" ... you had us until ... Clarkey ... really? This is who you think makes things happen at FCD?!  Laughing

Definitely strong at the top. But you still have the likes of OK Celtic and Sting Austin in the conference, who don't really belong. If they thought the 5-0 blowouts to the likes of DKSC and Albion weren't fun, just wait until Solar and FCD roll into town.

Energy would be an upgrade to Celtics (or TSC) in IMO. Better club and teams. They had become much more competitive with our FCD DA teams this year across the age groups. Think we lost to them in a couple of age groups. Would finish ahead of some of the existing clubs in ECNL Texas.

Solar and FCD will destroy those teams if they don't get some help. And if Lonestar gets in they will as well, assuming players stay put and don't move.

Energy is equal with TSC and a little ahead of Celtic; with Celtic closing quickly. Energy would be an even swap for TSC and a slight upgrade over Celtic.

In a perfect world, Energy and Celtic combine to form a more competitive club in ECNL, but chances of that happening probably not good.

Heard that GA is still finalizing Frontier Conference clubs.  Will be Friday before announcement is made which could mean ECNL Texas Conference is also being finalized (possible additions of FCD, Lonestar).

Anytime today...
I was always interested in how Solar and FCD DA teams...oh and Texans, would do vs Sting and Feeters ECNL teams. I think ‘03 Texans will compete well but not sure about the other age groups. I hear some parents don’t like the coaching options in the younger groups and they weren’t thriving in DA not ECNL two years ago. It’ll feel like the ole days again.

With Texans, Solar, and probably FCD soon all joining ECNL I don’t think Feet or Sting will ever see the champions league (top 4) again. I expect to see movement (already happening) from these 2 clubs to the other 3. When Feet and Sting play FCD, Solar, and Texans expect to see some football scores 7-0, 10-3, 13-0, Etc. Will be brutal. If you are an elite player at Feet or Sting LEAVE NOW rosters are filling up.

I would agree that playing in the same league as FCD and Solar isn't necessarily a good thing for the playoff hopes for D'Feeters and Sting Dallas, but both are significantly better girls clubs than Texans.
