Until your league is gutted (ecnl) and somehow, some way, your former doormat neighborhood club starts do something unimaginable, winning vs the leftovers in your skeleton league. (CU & FC 2018 ecnl league)

Then it's time to flip the big 'well done', exposure top competition narrative of past years, to the delusional notion you are now a top team in the 'nation'.

Spin cycle of insanity that is a pure joy ride for us onlookers.

The thorns are just getting started. Give them a few years before you give up on them. The point is not to win games. It is to get better and have fun.

Getting 6 wins in 36 games is pretty good really.

My guess is because of the ban on high school and also a few other things. We will see how it pans out over time.

The Thorns teams negative -43 goal differential is quite good. Nobody cares about goal differential.

Why the ax to grind? Thorns play in a much tougher league. There are great players and not so great players on Thorns teams but Thorns teams would still be top 1-3 in OYSA. Canít compare apples to oranges.

Now that high school soccer is over, I see the ECNL coaches are out recruiting again...

Hahahahahahah. Thorns are 3-4 in the state.

Donít justify your poor choice in a league with a lie that doesnít even come close to truth.

Crossfire Washington Timbers gps Eastside all have teams that are better than the da.

Itís not even close to competitive at some ages.

Oregon will always be fodder to the nationís best DA squads, even with our pro NWSL DA fielding subsidized & highly selective teams. This is no surprise, two local clubs tried their luck against a watered down version (US Club ECNL) a couple of years ago prior to the DA formation. To nobodyís surprise they struggled even more than the NWSL DA does present day.

In the end, Oregon girls have no place in the lofty heights of a National DA.

But, the USYS and US Club associations do offer local level club competition for our kids, USYS isnít as spendy as the travel US Club league, but both associations they take care of the lower level tiers of local club competition after the ĎDAí.

Yes Thorns would be top ten in OYSA at most age levels. Nothing wrong with that. Wins are not important inspite of what kids and parents think. . The goal is to take what you get and make it better.

This is important I agree. While none of us like to lose itís probably a good thing to learn.
