    Rumor has it that Strikers MV will become something new in a matter of days? Will this caterpillar turn into a butterfly?

    What will they become? The 92nd version of Pateadores? The OC Surf of Placentia in Mission Viejo? Will they resurrect the Eclipse name that Irvine Strikers tried to turn into a big club? Maybe they'll take over the West Coast name? Will RC Sr bring back the SC Athletic name?

    What other name changes/mergers/takeovers will happen between now and State Cup? And again before next August?

    question: if a team changes clubs or club changes names, what happens at state/national cup time? Do they get dropped?

    Players & coaches switching clubs happens but does MV franchise have a mutli year deal? Why would they change affiliations?

    Heard about a few Pats YL teams shopping around so won't surprise me if some strikers or other club teams are doing the same.

    Is that the Pats YL team that got booted because of a sideline fight? Not sure you can call that "shopping around", but I guess they need to find a home somewhere.
    Maybe they trade uniforms with Strikers and save everyone $300 on Nike gear.

    Strikers MV was strong due to their ties with the local HS. Has that luster worn off?

    Seems that mergers-takeovers-affiliations happen and/or fall apart for one of the following reasons:
    1. Access to field space
    2. Money
    3. History of some member from one club with another member of another club (good or bad)
    4. Ego

    Sr and Jr can be a little difficult to work with if they don't get their way.

    According to their Facebook page, they are now OC Surf Mission Viejo. But the strikersmv.com website hasn't changed (yet).
    Will they need to get new uniforms before State Cup?

    Coaches selling stuff they got for free? That's awesome.
    I get the tent (those things are expensive) and maybe player uniforms. But coaches selling their tracksuits and t-shirts is awesome.
