Madlax and VLC will need reboots. A few great players on each team, but absolutely zero depth, too many players on the roster in over their heads, and for VLC, serious goalie issues.
Neither team is that great, but you are talking about rising 8th graders. All clubs see a big change from 7th to 8th. Especially VLC since their 7th grade team is their entry year.
Some kids get better, lots of new kids come onto rosters, etc. Your statement is pretty funny (for any club).
