2007 DA

I know this thread mostly covers MLS Next and there is an ECNL board, but just curious if there is a thread somewhere covering EAL?
I'd say start it.. I personally hit mostly ECNL or MLS Next games so won't be have any hot takes. lol.

:) OK, wasn't sure if it already existed elsewhere or if there is even interest for the B07 age group? Was thinking there may be more interest in discussion, especially with more clubs joining EA this year. And surprised there aren't newer categories on this board as the only options are DA (old) and ECNL.

Way too early, potentially meaningless statistics...for the first two weekends I counted 21 games in the SW division (including LAG and LAFC that played out of SW division MLS teams). Out of those 21 games, 17 (81%) ended in a tie, or one goal differential. For comparison purposes the ECNL SW had 20 games of which 7 (35%) were ties or one goal differential.

Now, way too early standings (yes LAFC and LAG have tougher schedules):

Standings and results appear to have much more focus under MLS Next. The downside of this is that I expect we will see a change in the style and quality of soccer being played without the DA focus on development. The DA wasn't perfect, but at least it provided some structure to reduce the hyper focus on standings and results. The MLS next has none of the restrictions and has also further emphasized results with the qualification for the year end competition. I suppose if we don't care about the style of soccer our youth and college players are playing, the future of professional soccer in the US or the growth of soccer as a national sport, it doesn't really matter.
