U17B - Competition is thick, diverse and talented

What can we say?

This age bracket attracts a lot of attention and several teams have very different rosters going into Fall 2015.

Better than ever.

Region 1 at this age bracket offers a lot of talent at the top of the rankings.

U17 Boys soccer is where the action is.

PDA just one step away from Nationals.

Anonymous said...

Not the real nationals, right?

Anonymous said...

How many nationals are there?

Anonymous said...

It's real. SSC won it last year.

It is real and some good teas get to go.

Only bogus because you can simply play in a mid level tournament and if you win go to nationals. Smells wrong.

Anonymous said...

Actually you don't even have to win. Blues going to nationals

Happy 4th to all.

NYC Cup has a good number of colleges attending. My team is not playing. Anyone need a guest player?

Anonymous said...

Us club is the real nationals.. We all play most of our games and tournaments under us club cards..the other nationals have a ton of mickey mouse rules with sub par leagues and nobody uses their cards but to qualify for state cup under meaningless games. Who ever uses their cards for tournaments where you have to ask permission to travel. The academies only use us club cards and they are above both nationals.. Odp which is under NJ youth soccer is a Joke they charge parents almost $2000 a year for subpar competition..in the future us club will be the only tournament that most teams will want to attend.. Not the other mickey mouse nationals..

You are wrong but let me tell you why. At the beginning of the US club tournament you provide a roster. Throughout the tournament you can change your roster as much as you like. Now, you win and go to Nationals. You can now add more players to your roster. US Club allows you to add players because you already had tryouts and some were cut and others added. By the time you get to nationals you can have a completely different team. Even if they are not added to your roster you can bring them as guest players. That's right, guest players at Nationals. Stupid.

Yeah don't be silly, 1:43. Look at the ranking of the teams involved and it will tell you all you need to know. Anybody can apply to the regionals and "guest up". Have fun in Indiana but please, anyone can sign up.

Anybody hear anything about the new EDP Super Club model for next year?

Anonymous said...

No but why would that surprise anyone. Just keep coming up with new names and charge more.

All of the teams in the USYS Nationals would beat the teams playing in the Club final rather easily. Just look at the process to get to the finals... The NPL teams are decent sides, but PF, Loudoun, Celtic are on a different level.

Anonymous said...

Totally correct. And the CA and AZ teams. Even higher level.

It's obvious from your tone that you're the clueless guy that anonymously talks trash... look at the National League results and see how this U.S. Club team did against the USYS top west coast competition (Albion, Surf or Pateadores) or just look at the NYC team that is average on a good day did all year. (Hint: they do very poorly... Like 0 wins between the 2 poor.)

SDFC beat MF today 4-1. What happened MF? You lost both games at the showcase.

Anonymous said...

Yooooo truuu

Anonymous said...

SDFC tuning up for Nationals where they will play 3 of the most talented teams in the country and try to get to a National Championship. While MF is finishing out a season where they missed qualifying for that tournament by an incredibly slim margin so are probably not as sharp. The result makes sense when you take context into account. The top 3 NJ, MD, PA and VA sides can all beat each other on any given day... even Barcelona lose several games a year. Chill and just enjoy a really fun and competitive age group.

Anonymous said...

seriously -- chill. Teams win and lose. Look at the results over a season of play. Every time a top team loses...someone here asks what happened. Stupid question and an even worse way to follow and evaluate soccer.

MF puts a target on their backs because they brag so much about how fantastic they are. They really need to come down to earth. They enjoyed crushing Boca Shore 7-0 and then boasting to everyone about it. Everyone knows Boca is not a top team. MF won. No surprise to anyone . Now MF had a big loss to top team but no one is supposed to notice.

Mf > Barcelona

New players create new problems

What's the problem?

New ways to work together was meant.

Yup. Looks like MF checked out at NYC Cup. Nice tune up for SDFC for Nationals after a tough Spring. Good luck SDFC, make NJ proud!

Anonymous said...

How do 16 year old boys "check out"? There has to be a different reason. Missing players etc.

Anonymous said...

They don't check out.

Anonymous said...

After playing for awhile with a lot on the line, it is tough to get up for a tournament that just doesn't matter. They are a great team, this tournament meant nothing at the end of a very good Season.

Anonymous said...

I would think that the players would want to impress college coaches. What is more important for kids who want to play in college?

Anonymous said...

@4.53
It sounds like you agree that MF checked out, See you nest spring.

Anonymous said...

Again. Kids don't check out. Not kids at their level.

Anonymous said...

Burned out maybe?

Anonymous said...

Perhaps, but those scores show something worse. Missing players? New players not up to the same level?

HS soccer on the way. Any teams that are supposed to be tops this year?

Anonymous said...

St. Benedict's. Always #1. All of their academy players seem to get a special allowance to play high school.

Anonymous said...

NYRB 4 - Chelsea 2. Looks like even the very best can check out.

Anonymous said...

MF now comparing themselves to Chelsea. To continue the comparison are you saying that you didnt bring your top players?

Anonymous said...

Have to exclude St. B, cheating the system wont count.
Harrison will be very good this year.

Anonymous said...

Harrison just lost to Cliffside Park in the Bergen's Best summer tournament, and CLiffside Park is not the same team as in the past years. So how good is really Harrison???

Anonymous said...

Isn't Ranney supposed to be pretty good this year?

Anonymous said...

Gill St Bernards and Princeton should be a top team

Anonymous said...

7:56, how in the world can you transfer that onto MF? Get over it, it's time for you to move on.

Anonymous said...

Has Ranney ever done anything in soccer? Seriously, I am just asking...

Anonymous said...

Where is Ranney even at? Why are we talking about Ranney?

did you know that a kid from adfc already committed D1 and big 10

Anonymous said...

I heard that verbal commitments don't always happen.

I heard that verbal commitments aren't binding and don't mean too much.

He is good and will play D1, but what is your point?

Anonymous said...

If it's the kid I am thinking of its no surprise. He's good and it's becoming that time. Congrats to him.
