In response to the comment about the SJEB vs DOL game: Shame on you for making false rumors! The DOL players or the parents were never rude to the ref. There wasn't any cursing as you posted here. You are right that the ref was bad, but also DOL were not having a very good game. A very questionable penalty was given to SJEB and then about 20 minutes after that a DOL player was red carded. Although some bad calls were made, players or parents never yelled at the ref or at other parents. It's a shame an adult like yourself would like to give a team that doesn't get into arguments with other parents or players a bad rep. You can say DOL did't play well or the ref made very bad calls, but don't trash the team please. The score was 1-0.... Good luck to SJEB.

This is a player on TSF. The players want to stress that the comments regarding our acceptance in tournaments such as Surf Cup and others is not us speaking and the talk of us being "super great" and "the best team ever" and all the other cocky stuff. We have all agreed that we are only as good as our record and championships show.

Whoever the idiot is talking about the DOL vs. SJEB game I'm pretty sure the DOL player was red carded for walking right up to the ref and cursing in his face. Her your facts right and get off this page you moron. The parents were out of control and if you've even been to a DOL game then you know the coach is a complete physco unless you're too stupid to know that as well

No doubt TSF deserved that game they beat SJEB before 3-0 even tho SJEB had no subs the still dominated in possession but during the final their head werent on by screaming at eachother which made them not play A1.

SJEB was missing 3 of their most important players during that game. TSF and SJEB both failed to really get a great scoring chance in the final. It was deserved of a tie.

I really don't know why TSF has to make themselves look weak after playing a good, hard game against SJEB. It was a tough game throughout, but SJEB deserved it at the end. TSF should take it like men, learn from it, and not make fools of themselves by commenting childish things.

Someone must be a fan of East Brunswick? I say Mainland and DOL are better teams. East Brunswick have not won a game in EDP this season and are not a .500 team overall. Likely will be dropped to second division EDP for Mainland, SJEB or STA. They did a good job sending older players to academies. What left is average team.

EDP Spring Showcase schedules are out and now we know directors don't think and just focus on got soccer to flight teams.

I mean, as parents we know that stallions sucks, and these directors are supposed to know more than us and they still disappoint me time and time again.

I am not affiliated w/ TSF in any whatsoever and am not a fan of theirs. While I appreciate your enthusiasm and am truly happy for you, TSF is and will always be a far superior team. I am not taking anything away from your win. You should be proud! The game could have gone either way. In some instances points are very deceiving. The only thing that points are good for is getting into higher brackets at tournaments and for bragging to your friends who know nothing about club soccer that their son's team is Ranked ? Although I am wishing you success at Nationals, it will be a big wake up call for you.

OK but I don't agree with you. If you think TSF is a "Far" superior team they would have easily won but they couldn't score. They play safe, defensive style, nothing special about them.

PDA and MF will cruise to the final and then I'm sure this one could be one for the ages. After seeing MF get played off the pitch by TSF though, I believe PDA will squeak this one out and win the cup. Oh, and before I get accused of anything, I am a parent of a team that was not in either state cup semifinals so I have a completely neutral point of view and I hope I am taken seriously! Good luck to all!

Anonymous said...

For those related to SJEB:

Congratulations for winning the NJ Cup. It is a tremendous accomplishment and you should be proud. No matter how you won, well done.

With that said, please act appropriately. We get it, you won. It is basically a consensus that you were not the best team in the field, but you managed a victory and it was well deserved. Do not act like everyone should have expected you to win. Hopefully you guys do well at nationals.

Another important point though that all need to understand is that the nationals that SJEB will be attending in Colorado, while they are nationals, are not the highest level of competition. USYS is a far larger national soccer system, and few states have multiple state cups. The Nationals that SJEB qualified for are generally not attended by the best teams in the country, as shown by the fact that you can get there simply by winning a rinky dink regional qualifier tournament at PDA.

If that is all they have. Then why was MF only goal a PK?? Seems to me they have a lot more than that

Anonymous said...

Do not get me wrong, #3 is a fantastic player, but in the past 2 games vs. DOL and MF black #4 has assisted all six of his goals. A team could not win against other top knotch teams with 1 good player. Logan is underestimated and so is the talent on their team and they play wth a chip on their shoulder. This is why I cannot wait to watch them take on PDA tomorrow for the state final. I believe they lost to PDA in the Semifinals last year but I am not sure.

Anonymous said...

We were eliminated early on by neither team so there is no bias. Not a fan of PDA and am hoping to see Logan win the cup, but it will be no easy task. Logan was dominated by MF Blue early in the week. MF Black's defense was "Swiss Cheese" yesterday as their starting lineup was not on the field due to injuries. You can't judge yesterday's performance by MF Black on what to expect from PDA today. PDA had no flaws and are playing very well although they squeaked past Mainland. Although I would like to see Logan pull this off in a stunning upset, unfortunately I predict:

PDA 3
Logan 0

Thanks to Rooney for winning and restoring at least some semblance of order to this age group's state championship mess.

Bad planning and strange results in the past couple of years have rendered these competitions rather meaningless to me. DoL/Mainland was pretty bad last year and SJEB/Logan would have been another joke.

So with the age group changes pending and resulting restructuring of teams in this age group coming in August, here are my ALL TIME NJ TOP 10 for this age group.

1: Rooney
2: EB
3: Millburn
4: MF Black (NJ history only)
5: Gottschee
6: Marlboro
7: TSF
8: SJEB
9: DoL
10: Parsippany

Please note that the inclusion of Millburn and Marlboro are clear indications that these rankings are based on results over the past 5 or 6 years and not the present.

Anonymous said...

Spring '12 - Spring '13
Millburn Titans won 3 straight State Cups. On the run in the fall they beat EB & Rooney (6 players went on to play academy for Rooney)
They were the dominant team over the last 5 yrs. Millburn #3? I strongly disagree.

Has any other team ever won 3 straight State Cups?

Old stallions were very good too

I don't consider PDA Rooney an academy team. PDA has club teams as well as academy teams. Rooney is a club team or they wouldn't be playing EDP league.

"They were the dominant team over the last 5 yrs. Millburn #3? I strongly disagree."

They were the dominant team for about 3 years. But they don't exist any longer and have been gone for a while. So for the past couple of years they have been useless.

Finishing 3rd without having been in the game for a couple of years is rather impressive. Placing them 1st when they haven't won a game in years would be silly.

"(6 players went on to play academy for Rooney)"

This is not correct.

Anonymous said...

"Old stallions were very good too"

The Gunners were pretty good. But this was just another stop along the way for what was originally the Galicticos. This group would have made my top 10 had they worn the same jersey for more than a year. And they kind of made my list anyway as a number of these players are now at Parsippany.

EB has produced the most players moving to professional or development academies.

"EB has produced the most players moving to professional or development academies."

This may very well be true(although it might not be too). Regardless, I'd say the poster making this claim is heading in the right direction about what "success" really is about for youth programs. In the end, accomplishments like state championships earned at 14 or 15 years of age are great at the time, but become nothing more than memories soon thereafter. All right, they're good memories...but they're memories nonetheless.

For me, hoping my child will become a professional has always been pie in the sky. So I don't pay much attention to aspirations like these. My "goal" with my kids' youth soccer has always been to allow them a chance to develop to a point where their ability with this game will enhance their collegiate opportunities. So in this regard, I see the teams (and coaches) who have helped players the most in this manner to be the real winners. From this perspective, teams like Millburn or Marlboro are no longer significant as they didn't survive long enough to finish this task.

Anonymous said...

Good point made by the poster above.

The ultimate goal of the Elite teams these boys play for is to continue developing them so that they can compete at the collegiate level if they choose to do so.

A small fraction of club and even academy players will make it to the pros.

EB has fallen out of top 10 in the state for the first time ever, and it does jibe with the fact that they've lost many players to professional academies.

Anonymous said...

Define professional academy. You're contradicting yourself by saying the goal is collegiate play so what's the goal of professional academies? Is there a difference between academies and professional academies?

Anonymous said...

Either way...you choose.

My point is that even when a player is accepted into a Development Academy or a Professional Academy (MLS), a small fraction of players will make it to the pros. Hence, my assumption that most if not all players in this situation WILL want to play in college.

Assume all, and if 1 makes it to the actual big team consider it lucky.

Galactcios/Gunners are the best because one of their players is now on the roster for the u17 tournament in India so where did marlboro kick and run and millburn kick and run get them. Half the millburn kids on sdfc with the other half on tsf. Who knows what happened to marlboro. East brunswick also had some very good kids who are now professional.

Yes MF did get a red card. But Gottschee was already in the lead 1-0. The red came 20 minutes before second half ended. Also either way Gottschee was creating more oppertunites to score. Correct me if I'm wrong but that's what I saw. The second goal was going to to happen either way in my opinion. Maybe it helped a little that you were one man less but it was coming. I think Gottschee just dominated more. But either way like people have said in this blog. Any top team can beat anyone else at any given day.

Guys please.. Stop making excuses like that PDA parent made. Face it you guys lost and they won. No team would send in reserves for a league like this. What would be the point of that? Isn't the point to win the league so they get first? Not just give up losses?

MF lost the game fair and square. But I don't understand why a handful of their starters were on the bench. Maybe they didn't get playing time in the previous tournament? What I am seeing more & more in "pay to play soccer" is that coaches are sacrificing EDP games to play everyone and only play their starters in tournaments & state cup games. MF isn't the only team that does this. When the focus is on points this seems to be the trend.

yes, I was wondering about that too - if all they care about is points, then why sacrifice the EDP games. you still get points for EDP, right? or why even bother playing in the EDP if you don't care for those points?

MF - why didn't you play your starters, and then trash gottschee because they beat you. same with PDA - you complain that 7 players didn't show up to play. and then you're a sore loser, downplaying gottschee because they beat you.
if you come to play a game, then play with whatever players you have, starters or reserves, or don't come at all. suck up the loss and move on.

Anonymous said...

Everyone on the team is paying. A coach can't just play his starters all the time and if they do, they players who never play are going to leave and that could be a big financial loss. What really seems unfair is you have some families paying $0 and their kid plays all the time and the players on the bench have to subsidize him.

As for the person that responded to the Parsippany impersonator claiming they are a glorified town team, you are also misinformed. Parsippany recently aligned itself with Bayern Munich and just last month had a player represent the club as part of a "Bayern US Affiliates" team in Munich.

On June 2 12:27 some kid bashed the parents on this blog..parents should be encouraged to share on this blog..besides being very immature & undisciplined, these kids are very unappreciative..without our parents driving us to/from practice, tournaments, and spending thousands of dollars traveling, etc. we would not be soccer players.

Thanks for your post, I'm sure you're a good kid as most youth players are. It's unfortunate that a few ignorant kids(and parents) can ruin a good experience for others.

If I'm white can I play on Match Fit Black?

Top 3 teams in the state and why ?

Anonymous said...

TSF now ranked first in state after finishing 4th in EDP north. Would love to see a PDA Rooney vs. Tsf game. Winner of that would be the undisputed number 1 team in NJ if you ask me.

TSF is in the 2nd flight of EDP tournament. MF in first.

Wierd how TSF is in the second bracket even though they beat matchfit

TSF is a fluke.

PDA versus MF Black is undisputed best in NJ.

Matchfit black has already lost too gotschee TSF and pda and Logan this year sooooooo

I am fairly new to this blog..

What does TSF stand for? Are they an academy? From what I heard, they charge almost $3,400? Is the training that good? Is it a good investment? My son was offered a spot for next year. They only saw him play 1x and I felt as if they are more concerned with filling a roster.

Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thank you.

the sports factory. not an academy but tells parents they are. They need to justify those huge fees. overpriced compared to other clubs. My son was there and got very little playing time because they play the same starters most of the game and then tell parents it's all about training for player development.

Looks like MF Blue had a draw against TSF 2-2 a few weeks ago.

Was this the TSF academy or club team? If it was their club team, it is a non-event.

theres no academy team there all teams. Are they playing in the academy league?

TSF and MF tied in an EDP league event. Interested how the two teams do this weekend in EDP showcase

No affiliation w/ either team..they are each in separate brackets..MF is definitely facing tougher competition. Unfortunately for NJ teams, we are lagging behind other states top teams. I would be very surprised if either team won their bracket. I hope that I am proven wrong.
Good luck to all NJ teams!

Any news about 1st games in Hammonton?

No scores posted from today's EDP Showcase results as yet. That's pretty weak.

I can tell you that EB and SJEB drew 0-0. And while I didn't see it myself, I was told that Parsippany blasted Gottschee.

Anonymous said...

Parsippany beat Gottschee 4-0.

And it is odd that no scores (for any of the flights) are posted. Must be a technical problem.

"This is a player on TSF. The players want to stress that the comments regarding our acceptance in tournaments such as Surf Cup and others is not us speaking and the talk of us being "super great" and "the best team ever" and all the other cocky stuff. We have all agreed that we are only as good as our record and championships show."

I thought I'd read that TSF was heading to the Surf Cup this year. But this appears not to be the case as they are not on the Accepted Teams list for this one.

Matchfit black had a rough weekend. While cedar stars matchfit blue parsippany gotschee and TSF all won

Anonymous said...

I was at Tuckahoe today and wouldn't put any credence on any of the results. Yes, the grass is great. But the wind there today made it impossible to play soccer in any reasonable manner.

I am not going to say a lot about this weekends results but everyone should know that FC Copa who talks like they can compete with a top 10 team in the state lost 8-0 in the finals of the 2nd bottom bracket to a team I had never heard of. Also know that Parsippany white lost 8-0 to a team who had 0 points prior to that game. The silver bracket was the only bracket where all teams were evenly matched. Other than that, poor bracket making by edp.

Anonymous said...

Actuallly the bottom bracket was also competitive with Edison, Montclair and Aberdeen all competing fiercly.

Anonymous said...

Stop spreading rumors. That was the FC Copa B team that lost 8-0. The A team won their group at EDP Showcase this week. The B team sucks, the A team can compete with anyone.

"...the A team can compete with anyone."

Isn't Porto the "A" team at FC Copa? If so, congrats on that impressive win in the 7th flight today!

This tremendous victory, coupled with their 9th place finish (out of 10 teams) in a 2nd division EDP league this spring is clear evidence that they "can compete with anyone."

C'mon Bro!

Is anyone familiar with youth soccer in other countries? I ask because I'm wondering if the quality of refereeing in other parts of the world is as bad as we see here.

I know refereeing a soccer match is a very tough job and that by the end, you'll have pleased half the people (the winners) while ticking off the other half (the losers). So I appreciate the difficulty.

But the quality of refereeing I see regularly is so poor it's hard to stomach. Refs who don't seem to have any grasp of playing advantage when a foul is committed are the norm and not the exception. And the common practice of merely cautioning players who foul to deny obvious goal scoring opportunities makes dragging down a player on the way to the goal a good tactical decision. These are examples of just a couple of errors I see far too frequently.

But not fully grasping the laws of the game isn't their worst offence. This honor goes to the host of refs who seem to think the point of the game is for them to exercise their authority. So instead of a youth soccer game, we get some sad middle-aged man on a power trip.

There are some very good referees. But, unfortunately, they are few and far between and I wonder if this is an American problem or if we share this collective incompetence with the rest of the world.

Refereeing is bad everywhere at every level. Just take a look at the handball goal from Peru against Brazil.
