Thunder's better days are long behind them. I think they've got less than 20 teams, and none of them play at an elite level. Calling this a merger is generous. More than likely, the club was about to go under. This gives the players and families on current Thunder teams a chance to stay together and it gives CU access to more practice and game space

Yea, it a not so much a merger as it is CU gobbling them up. But I guess it does allow CU to expand with giving them access to another large complex for training. I'm sure it's a win for all involved. Hopefully the prices can remain similar for the TU familes moving over. I'd hate to see them get priced out of this deal.

Someone should write a business school case on this, classic of an organization losing their way by not doing an honest market analysis. They had a quite successful formula - parent coached teams, strong training support, low if hardly any overhead, cater to families, low cost, next step up from SAY/Rec. Then comes DOC's, Executive Directors, Administrators blah blah with the foolhardy notion that suddenly you are not what you are but instead we are CU/KHA/OE. I assume that WC will be next? Not sure. Makes me wonder what club, if any, will place their roots at the new facility being built on 741 near Otterbein.

The cost between TU and CU were very comparable to be honest.

There board/president is what ruined them. they had found their niche and were exploding with numbers just a few years ago. the president blind-sided the director at the time and fired him because of "differing of philosophies", and replaced him with a puppet that he could completely control. They got what they deserved honestly.

Yet again, people with power ruining club soccer, who would have ever guessed!

A club President needs to take care of the business side of the club and not tell coaches / DOC's what they need to do and how to coach. Unfortunately TU learned this way to late. I agree he got more involved than he should have though he meant well in the long run it sunk them.

Not in the age groups I have looked at. It appears they may actually be growing.
