    I saw the Gaels play and I think they had the Best team and players out of all the Illinois teams.

    Actually the Chicago Cobras was a very good team back in the 90's. Charmaine Hooper used to play for them.

    Also include the Chicago Cobras, who as MRAD pointed out were great in the 90's. They won several championships and were the most dominant W-League team up until the WUSA started in 2001 and we're still quite a presence until they disbanded in 2004.

    Another for the Graveyard are the Windy City Gaels, which were founded in response to the Cobras disbanding.

    Yes, this has confused my in the past, I am not sure if there is a continuation (coaches, player, owners, etc) between the Cobras, the Gaels and the Red Eleven.

    In wiki I believe I read that the Red Eleven were a direct continuation of the gaels, not sure about it.

    Are they 3 totaly separate organozations or the same basic organization with 3 different names?

    It was the Chicago Gaels--Not Windy City! Do some research and you will find out they had a much better roster then any of the other teams and at a time when the W-League was at its strongest!

    Hi Guys!

    Yes I got slammed for calling you clueless about not knowing a team in Chicago!! I didn't call you Clueless , only used it referring to not knowing one of the best teams in Chicago.

    As in "How would you be so clueless about knowing this team?" Not as in "You are just a clueless individual"

    I wouldn't think any of you are that thin skinned!!

    This is on the WPSL website, is this a new team? A rebranded team, no much information.

    The Wiki page is wrong to say the Gaels turned into Red 11...There notable players played for the Gaels and not for RED11.

    Red 11 had totally new owners and staff!

    ...Watch your tones!!!

    This site is full of wrong information! If you post make sure you have your facts or you should have people talk to you with harsh tones...I disagree it was harsh but I don;t work in a kindergarten class room.

    Yes, I was thinking about splitting out the pages in wiki, but I do not think there is a lot of info out there that I could source for a new article on the Gaels.

    Maybe you can give it a shot.

    Ahh, this explains the Chicago FC on the WPSL website.

    Nice, I wonder if the problem is that WPS owns the rights to "the Red Stars", One of the reasons to dislike single entity structure.

    Red Stars are a for profit organization......I would only have to guess that they own that name..have the copy right. Maybe the other owners do not want it used??

    Why the WPSL?? That the question I would ask..Its a lame league around the midwest!

    No W-league in the Midwest, their choice was WPSL or WMSL.

    If he did, he can't respond. A red card makes your account read-only.

    From the WPSL site they are playing at Benedictine, where the Red 11 played. They have a great facitliy there. I will have to try and make it down for a game or two. But Libertyville is closer so may see them play up there.

    Here's the division they are in. So I'm guessing 10 games total (ie home/away with each of the other teams).
