Dedication issues? Not sure if that is correct, most of these guys love the sport. Scheduling will become an issue as the coaches try to schedule their games when they have their stars available, but that should not be any different then any other year.

Anonymous said...

Most players have committed by now, this is a very good time to reach out to colleges you are interested in, they may have openings due to the fact that they didnt get some players they planned on getting.

You are correct good but not much above that. Let's be honest daddy.

YMS U18 Boys are looking to add 1-2 field players and a goalie for the spring season. Players could be 98's or 99's. Our season will run from now until mid-May and we will train 2 nights per week and play one game most weekends. We will compete in the Region 1 Eastern Regional League, Pennsylvania NCS State Cup, and the APL.


Please contact Chris McDaniels (ASAP), head coach, if you are interested or have any questions.

Grass or artificial turf, which do you prefer to play on?

Depends on how deep the grass is. If mowed properly I'll take grass. If it's 3-4 inches long then turf.

Saw the NJ Cup brackets came out. STA 98 NPL seems to play no real threat, am I missing something?

You missed SSC's big MAPS challenge for the cup. Bye or BUY? How you merit a bye when you forfeited something like 5 games last season?

Anonymous said...

That is a very good point. Why would SSC be rewarded for their immature behavior last season? Too late now, and I guess it doesnt really matter but maybe they should not have been left in at all. Or, make them play MF every game this year, that will show them.

How is 1:21 "stirring it up"? You don't believe those are two truths? SSC did NOT honor the game last season, and MF is a dominant team. There are other teams that are very good and of course can beat MF on a given day but going into the game who is the favorite? MF

Anonymous said...

MF, Marlboro, Holmdel, STA are the four you know will be top teams in NJ this year. Stronghold is always good but they did lose an all-american to MF so that cant be a good sign.

Anonymous said...

Oh right, Marlboro beat Holmdel for the "National" championship. Forgot, my bad.

Anonymous said...

Not a big US Club state cup fan but who do you play for that would allow you to talk down to Marlboro and Holmdel? They played in the finals why? Because they beat the other teams to earn that right. Those teams were from all over the country, it just worked out that way in the final. So again, what team do you play for? Why werent you there?

Anonymous said...

Only someone that does not play these two teams would make such a stupid statement. Both have talented players and have the results to prove they belong where they are.

Anonymous said...

Taking these games and teams so seriously is ridiculous. Just let the kids play. Adults act like there's so much at stake here. They are youth teams. No team is "threatened" by any other. You win some you lose some. Have fun! A player is only all american because his HS coach gives him that honor. Maybe another coach wouldn't see it the same way.

Anonymous said...

Hold on a minute. Are you suggesting that a HS coach can simply hit a button and their player is an all american? There are no other obstacles in the way?

Yes

NO possible way. If that was the case everyone would be an all american.

Come on, HS soccer isn't serious. Everyone knows that. The coach sees the big kid who scores a lot of goals by running onto the ball as a great player. If you want to believe there's more to it, go ahead.

All-American is serious! Seriously.

All American is 70% serious and 30% fluff. Not all selections from NJ (and other states) are seriously not All American players. Seriously.

There are kids who are All American who aren't even key players on their club team, but they were able to toe poke some goals against low quality HS teams and that makes them top in the country?

You forgot Marlton as a State Cup contender. Always a good team, this could be their year.

Anonymous said...

You can also say you forgot about 20 teams as contenders. With the age change no one knows who is playing on what teams. Could be a whole new group of top teams.

Anonymous said...

20 teams? Let's not get crazy. One of the top 5 teams will win the State Cups.

Anonymous said...

Top 5: Any game between the top three would be just phenominal to watch and no sure bet to win. Great work by the Kids, Parents and Coaches in being the top teams in the Country.

Marlboro
Matchfit
Holmdel


4-5 slots are: Very good teams that play with a lot of heart.
Marlton
SJEB
-on the bubble Stallions

I don't know the status of STA? If they are still in the age group I would put them at a solid 4 ranking. SSC's status is questionable as well, with the loss of key players to competing clubs, thier forfeiture of the remainder of last season and tournament participation, I'd put them in the 7-10 ranking however, they are unquestionably not in the top 5 at this time.

Anonymous said...

Not sure how you could know any of this for sure. Teams change, players leave, some have graduated and are in college at this point. Teams at this point can be very different from what you state and no one really knows how it will all shake out.

Anonymous said...

Regardless, the top team is MF.

Anonymous said...

Graduated and are in college in this age group? Sorry, but 99/98 teams either dropped down to 99 or they remained intact and play 98 (U19). So not sure how they could have graduated and are in college when they haven't graduated HS yet and the younger still have a year to go?

It's an opinion-based hyposthesis partly derived from past performance and the top teams are and have thier rosters pretty much intact. So unless 4-5 teams merged thier best players then it's a possibility they might shake out somewhere but not as a top competetor in the state.

Most 98s have graduated high school and are now in college.

They're playing for the challenge and fun of it. The cost is usually included in the club fees.

Anonymous said...

Tournaments at this stage are ok if you have the money to do so. No need to travel far, the only college coaches that will be watching you are the coaches you have already signed up to play for. The bigger question to me is what to do this summer? I know you should be conditioning, but are new teams formed to keep you sharp?

I was at a Rider game when they played Nova. They do have a bunch of foreigners on their team. I think Rider had about 7-8 starters. Villanova had 1 or 2. To act like those 4 teams you mentioned are representative of what college soccer is like is a bit misleading.

Foreign players do have an easier time getting into D2 and some D3 schools as many of them don't have the academic history required by more competitive schools.

Do you seriously think that these players do not want to win when they step on the field? How do you think many of them go to where they are and will be (playing in college). No one said there was an end game of getting into better tournaments, but the will and desire to win a game is there.

2. The club president MUST write a formal letter to EDP regarding the forfeit.
3. The club will pay the fine within 3 business days.
4. If the fine is not paid within the required timeframe, then that team’s succeeding
week’s match will NOT be played and the team will be issued a 3-0 loss.
5. Should a second forfeit occur within a Club in the same seasonal year, the matter
will be sent to the EDP league office to determine sanctions.
6. If no score is reported 3 days following a completed game, the home team will be
issued a $50 fine.

Most of it stems from the favourtism of certain players with the revolving door with Redbulls, Daddy's influence with management and coach whose behaviour drives colleges away.

Their are favorites everywhere. If a coach believes a player can help him win, for the most part they will take that player. The coaches all talk a big game but push come to shove the win/loss record is what attracts new business to them. No coach is going to drive college coaches away, if that was the case very few players in NJ would be playing in college based on how the coaches behave.

I think it is great that MF has so many D1 commits. For those of you that play them you know they are a very good team with some very skilled players. You might have also noticed that they may or may not be better then your son and that the main reason they get the D1 exposure is because their coach WORKED to put them in the right places at the right times and made the proper calls. If you think your son is as good as some at MF that are playing D1, and your son is not, well you might have a point. Maybe your coach should have done something, done anything.

We won some, lost some over the years but they were always close and the difference was not what you might think.

NJCup sweet 16

NJCSA Marlboro vs Excel Rasen
Not sure who Excel Rasen is, where they play out of or anything. I think they are a newly formed team which could be dangerous if they put a team together of all stars. Marlboro is the #1 ranked team in the state and country so I have to believe they are stronger and will choose Marlboro to win this game.

SJEB 99 Academy vs Wall Elite
SJEB is a strong 99 team while Wall is a mid level 98 squad that has added some players. Wall will have the size advantage, SJEB will have the skill level needed to knock off Wall in PK's

Holmdel NJX vs Mainland UTD
Mainland UTD has had an easy ride so far and this will be a punishing defeat. Holmdel is too talented to allow this to be a close game.

TSF academy 98/99 vs East Brunswick UTD
TSF has a nice track record and East Brunswick shouldnt stay close in this one, but somehow I see a close game. TSF 3-1

TSF Academy 99 vs Cedar Stars 99
Cedar Stars is a dark horse in this tournament to win it all and TSF just doesnt have what is needed to win this game. CS will win 4-1

Stronghold Falcons vs Go Soccer Wembley
Blowout city. SSC will not take this seriously and if past performance means anything they will have players missing for no legit reason. Yet, they will win handily vs the Go Soccer team that doesnt even know how they are still playing.

SJEB 98 Academy vs Toms River Newcastle
At first sight SJEB should have no issues here but Toms River has a history of hanging tough and I wouldnt be surprised if this was closer then people might think. SJEB will pull it out.

STA 1998 NPL vs Hudson UTD
With the top STA team in this age group knocked out this is STA's last hope. Hudson will win this game and move on to play SJEB.

That is a solid post and pretty accurate in the sweet 16. Prior to that post, 1/2 of the Freshman class won't even see the pitch thier first year and the other half may tip 100 minutes played. Then figure that only 2-5% of the freshman or so will still be playing as a senior.

Do you think there is a difference between a 98 team playing a 99 team? 99's can still have seniors on their teams too. I guess it is hard to gauge because they do not play one another anywhere else.

Competing vs 98 and 99s will be different experiences depending on different teams strengths and weaknesses.

Me predictor you are wrong. Wall 5-0 That SJEB team is supposed to be good? Anyway, onward Wall, more teams to slay

Just kidding mr predictor. Wanted to see if anyone would bite. You were still wrong but not to that final score. I have been saying for a few weeks now that Wall is underappreciated and are a much better team then anyone gives credit too. Has a few really top level players and many good to very good players on it. Excellent coaching and has added some key players now. Again I say do not sleep on Wall. SJEB was a decent team but really the better team won and I think even SJEB would admit that to be true. ONWARD WALL!

Wall winning isn't a great surprise. Above average 98 beat a good 99.

I missed one, Wall with a victory over SJEB academy 99. 2-1 so far with the predictions, congrats to Wall with what seems to be an upset.

Look at Wall doing its thing. I see an upset blooming on the horizon!

Marlboro (NJCSA) whatever you call yourself now, you better watch out, that is, if you beat Excel.

Of course anything can happen but if you are looking at past performance Marlboro plays thoroughbreds while Wall has beaten one good 98 team, Marlton. Is that enough to go on to say that they will beat Marlboro? To your point we do not even know if they will play Marlboro yet. Marlboro is ranked the #1 team in the country, they got there by winning games. Wall from what I can tell is playing well against average teams. I would be very surprised to see a Wall victory if this even materializes.

The new kids on the block against the number 1 team in the nation. It has the makings of a good game; if it happens.

Good luck to both!

Wall is not a team worthy of a new kids on the block title. This team has been around since U8, ok some different players I am sure but not a new team in any sense. They have no chance of winning a state cup, none, zero. They can win a game on any day but complete the whole tournament no way.

Never say never. New players = new results.

Why do they have 0 chance? Have you seen the team play? Are their uniforms not fancy enough? Do the families not pay enough in fees? Are the coaches not up to your standards?

Yes, uniforms are the reason. I dont know what they pay and the coaches are reputable so it has to be the uniforms.

The coach of the 98's is an excellent coach. He's on the coaching staff at Monmouth University.

Yes, let's bring in HS soccer to the equation now. Hey, everyone is saying you never know but no one is saying they will.
