U16B - Are you ready for some football?

Teams are streamlining at this age group, fewer teams comprised of more talented high school age players.

Many clubs have new coaches, new leagues and new competition that spans several states.

High school soccer, club team, academy team.

Buckle up for an exciting ride.

"Can't say I've caught a lot of TSF arrogance over the years. I mean, really, what could they possibly be arrogant about? They've been also-rans in this age group for as long as I can remember."

Wow! What a difference a couple of months can make as TSF arrogance is no longer hard to come by.

I commend the club for getting their team into top tournaments like the Surf Cup and LV Mayor's Cup. Of course this costs money but I don't blame people for having it.

But before you "end the debate" I would suggest you wait to see how the team fares at these events (as well as the local ones). If I recall correctly, Parsippany made the semifinals in a 32 team flight at last summer's Surf Cup while MF Black won their group at the Jeff Cup and were finalists in a very tough flight at Disney.

So getting into top tourneys is great and congrats (assuming the post is accurate). But I would suggest that some success out west would be a good thing to achieve before getting so caught up with yourselves.

Great win against LAFC in Dallas. Too bad you guys couldn't get out of your group though.

Why are people complaining that we are a rich club. If we go to tournaments, other teams like ironbound are jealous that we go all these places. If you want to go to other tournaments, Don't complain when we go everywhere across the country.

You really are a funny dude!

As per GotSoccer, over the past year (give or take a couple of days) TSF has played and decisively beaten MF Black twice. They've played Rooney once and were beaten. They've played Gottchee 3 times (understanding Gottsche is actually the "Winner of play-in game B") and lost twice.

TSF is a good team. But I'm sure many of those involved will them be disappointed to learn of this foolishly boastful effort of yours.

But I appreciate the grins!

Nice to have an extra $10,000 a year to throw around. More for all the travel abroad trips. Keep pretending you're superstars TSF people, prancing around in your $400 uniform kits.. It gets you nowhere in the end. I guess that's why so many parents and coaches leave that place. They know it's all pretend.

TSF is a good team, but that boastful attitude is what has now made people hate that club. No ones saying you guys are bad, I don't know why you have to go around saying "We are the best and everyone else **** off". There is no best team in NJ, anyone can and will beat anyone on any given day.

A lot of people hate that club. The owner ,listens to parents all the time because he's only interested in profit. The squeaky wheel gets the grease there. Many good coaches have left because of this. I have seen bad players pushed up and good players kept down. They are more interested in profit than player development.

Anonymous said...

Yes TSF did go to 3 tournaments in March while most other teams only played 2. They moved up 2 spots in the rankings so you can't really say they are buying their way to the top. I also believe that neither Surf Cup nor LV mayor cup accepted teams has been released. All these teams will have the opportunity to prove they are the best team in the state and arguing about it on here before any meaningful games have been played is pointless. The results will explain themselves and we will see where everyone stands come the end of the season.

It would appear the MF Blue "defiantly" beat Gottschee in PKs today in the NJ Cup.

Anonymous said...

Wow, MF Blue over Gottschee. Was not expecting that. Knew they were a good team, didn't think they would have a shot against a proven team like Gottschee though. I don't care if its PKs, a win is a win. Is it now reasonable, even probable to think that MF could be in the finals of state cup? Next 3 matches are probably Nj force, DOL, and Mainland. I don't think any of these teams are better than Gottschee. MF Blue vs MF Black final?

on the note of a MF Blue vs MF Black final... what do people predict for the MF Black side of the bracket? definitely a possibility we could see both MF in final but could EB/Parsippany upset the chances of that

Anonymous said...

It is interesting that the left side of the bracket has both the NJ Cup and State Cup winners from last year yet seems to be weaker than the right side to me.

MF Black, EB or Parsippany could get to the final. And so could TSF or maybe even CSA Newark.

One never knows what will happen in the end as last year offers two cases in point. But I'm betting on the "right side" for the NJ Cup winner.

Anonymous said...

I mean I think that side of the bracket is tremendously harder than the other side. Really only 2 good teams left on that side (MF Blue and DOL) while the other side has EB, MF Black, Parsippany, SDFC, TSF. I think Parsippany and MF will play in that quarterfinal, and EB and TSF in the other qf. After that, it really could go any way. But in my (expert) opinion MF vs TSF and MF wins.

Anonymous said...

On another note, NJ Stallions got absolutely spanked by Mainland today. 7-0. That means that they have now lost 12 out of their last 13 games, not even against great opposition. What's up with them?

Anonymous said...

"But in my (expert) opinion MF vs TSF and MF wins."

Interesting in that I noted earlier today the TSF has beaten MF Black twice in the last year. And the score was 3-0 on both occasions. So might TSF have MF Black's number?

On the left side, I now see that MF Blue will get NJ Force next round.

Haven't seen CSA yet. Their results from last fall aren't great and they haven't really played a top team so far this spring.

But if the claim that they are effectively the St. Benedict's HS team are true then a lot of us may be in for a surprise.

They are a completely team from last year and they look very promising for this season. With key players from DoL, east Brunswick and some other recruits making their transfer to St. Benedicts the team shows much chemistry and can knock the ball around and break down teams. Their game vs TSF will be a great matchup and it will be hard to predict a winner

not the greatest game (parsippany vs sdfc). parsippany undoubtably the better side and sdfc gave absolutely no threats besides some throwins, but both teams ended up stooping down to the level of classlessness of the parents. I must say, I've been to a lot of youth soccer games and the sdfc parents were absolutely appalling and I am glad my son will not be playing them in future rounds of NJ Cup. obviously, the parsippany parents stabbed back, which was hard to blame, but the expression of frustration coming from sdfc ruined their entire game. they seemed to have no game plan whatsoever and completely lost everything after parsippany scored a nice goal. parsippany ended up playing much poorer in the second half but managed to contain a very aggressive sdfc quite well, besides the launching of throwins. sdfc ended up with a deserved red card after the constant unnecessary aggression. don't get me wrong, u16 games do get very intense, especially in state cup between two good teams, but i will never understand the disgusting behavior by many of those parents, particularly on the sidelines for sdfc, who should be very ashamed of themselves and really look at their lives a bit more before attending a YOUTH SOCCER GAME IN NEW JERSEY.

Anonymous said...

Parsippany and SDFC was hotly contested.

In terms of "quality," I don't think SDFC managed to string 4 passes together at any point in the game.

SDFC play some pretty ugly "soccer." But they are a tough matchup as they certainly do play with intensity.

This one should have been a second round draw.

I was going to leave the SDFC "supporters" behavior without comment. But since you brought it up...

Yelling at referees is common. But yelling at the opposing teams players is really low rent.

And yes, I think they managed to get the goat of some of the Parsippany "supporters" so the whole thing was unnecessarily unpleasant by the end.

Anonymous said...

after seeing SDFC for the first time it's hard to understand why they would want to play that kind of soccer. yes, the had great intensity but despite having some talented players, they could not pass the ball for anything. quite disappointing to see a coach (i am assuming the coach commands their way of play) allow that sort of play. some of their players seemed to just be "thugs" on the field and totally brought down any possibility of linking up with the good players. but anyway, good win by Parsippany!

So I am an MF Blue parent who was at the Parsippany vs. SDFC game and I believe that Parsippany 100% deserved to win that game without a doubt. Parsippany completely dominated the first half and scored a very nice goal. Then in the second half held back and displayed some solid defense and just kept defending the monstrous long throw in that I thought was only used in High School soccer. SDFC didn't play the good soccer that I am sure they are capable of playing. They had some very good plays with the ball but it wasnt consistent enough to pull through with a win. The only thing that SDFC did consistently was curse and complain to the referee. Yes the referee wasn't very good but complaining just made you look like such a bad team. Now the last thing is the sportsmanship by the SDFC parents was just absolutely putrid and so ugly to listen too. So much disrespect to the opposing team's players and parents. Now I'm sure people will disagree with me but just know that this is what I believe if you believe something else thats great for you I dont really care im saying what i believe.

I can't say I know much about Abbey Villa other than they're from MA and lost to Happaugue last month. So I'm thinking our Jersey teams can handle them."

Rooney got a draw with North Utd. in the Region 1 Champions League over the weekend and MF Black lost 1-0 to them. Rooney also beat MF Black 1-0 and they both crushed Abbey Villa by 4. Not too bad NJ!

The curious result was that North Utd beat Abbey Villa by just 1 goal.

Kind of an odd group in this one with a number of very good teams and then Abbey Villa and Happaugue tossed in.

sdfc parents were talking to parsippany players and screaming and cursing at refs after every play. players ended up doing the same which resulted in their red card. constantly complaining about throwins and freekicks. just really embarrassing stuff coming from grown men and women at their son's youth match. mocking other teams players talking to them or really getting involved with them whatsoever is out of line

Anonymous said...

With parsippany up 1-0, they were taking their time when it came to throws and corners which is what any team would do but the sdfc parents accused parsippany of cheating and told the players to start playing soccer and stop cheating. Said the same things to the ref and others. Overall just bad behavior out of adults who are at a youth soccer game. Red card was from a kid yelling explicits at the ref

Anonymous said...

"Red card was from a kid yelling explicits at the ref"

Okay, this makes sense to me. I was surprised by the straight red at the time as I didn't think the foul was a sending off. But I know the ref had had a conversation with the same player earlier in the match (without giving him a card). So he probably should have known to stay in control and apparently wasn't able to do so.

He definitely didn't exit quietly.

Not easy for kids not to yell explicits when they hear their parents yelling the same/worse things from the sidelines. Disappointing to see at a soccer game for 15/16 year olds.

The NJ Cup's "Sweet 16" is now set after Princeton Orange's win over FC Copa.

If I had to pick the most competitive corner of the bracket at this point, I'd probably have to go to the upper right with EB, TSF and CSA (and Elizabeth YSC).

Should be MF Black and Parsippany in the lower right.

And I think we may see some upsets on the left side. I actually think NJ Force has a shot to get to the semifinals from the upper left and maybe even one of the Princeton teams from the lower left.

"round of 16 predictions to move on in state cup and perhaps win it all?"

The right side of the bracket is a strong favorite, but it's anybody's guess as to who will emerge. Despite all the banter on this board (much of it seems to be just an attempt to get someone else's goat), EB, TSF, Parsippany and Match Fit Black are all at a similar level and any of them could win it. That said, a few of the teams on the left side have a relatively easy path to the final, so I wouldn't discount one of them pulling the upset.

But I think it will either be the Parsippany/MF Black winner or TSF.

Just saw the NJYS State Cup (not to be confused with the NJ CUP) racket for the first time.

Really seems like somebody doesn't like Gottschee. Not only did they draw MF Blue in the first round of the NJ Cup, but now they have NJ Force in the State Cup 1st round with the winner getting MF Black in the round of 16!

The crazy part is that teams like STA Jackson Athletico, PDA Jinky and Princeton Spurs all get 1st round byes! And if STA Jackson Athletico (whoever they are?) can beat the Washington Utd/Aresnal Maximus winner in their first game they'll advance to the quarter finals!

Horrendous bracketing here. Who the heck does this stuff?

Anonymous said...

For whatever GS rankings may be worth, the 13th ranked team in the State (Arsenal Maximus) will play the 70th ranked team in the State (Washington Utd) with the winner getting the 30th ranked team in the State (STA Jackson Athletico) in a round of 16 match.

But in another bracket, the 7th ranked team in the State (Gottschee) will face the 12th ranked team in the State (NJ Force) to see who gets the #1 ranked team in the State (MF Black) in the round of 16.

An interesting thought. But it doesn't explain how NJ Force (who participated last year) would be given such a nasty draw (Gottschee and then MF Black if they win the first round game) while Arsenal Maximus (who didn't participate last year) would get an easy trip to the quarters.

I hope it's just random but I doubt that. So I'm left thinking NJYS either has chips on their shoulders for certain clubs, based this on who paid first or are just plain clueless. And any one of these three would be disappointing.

I will say that the goal that gave TSF the win was a botched back pass that the goalie messed up. CSA Newark are a good team who had a mix of academy players and St. Benedicts players who are talented. TSF had to show defensive resilience as they were putting 10 men up. I do think TSF has a shot at winning the State Cup however they will have challenges in their way . They did beat MF Black 3-0 last time they played and beat Parsipanny 1-0 so they have a good chance. This years State Cup ending should be very entertaining

Anonymous said...

"This years State Cup ending should be very entertaining"

Just for the sake of clarity, the event you are discussing is the "NJ Cup" and not the "State Cup."

The NJ Cup is a US Club Soccer event that is now playing the 2nd round. The NJYS State Cup has yet to begin.

And while some of us were complaining that the "lower left" bracket in the NJ Cup was weak, the brackets in the upcoming State Cup are just plain silly. So for this reason alone, I would consider the NJ Cup to be a more interesting event.

One other differentiating factor of note is that Rooney did not enter the NJ Cup while Parsippany is not in the State Cup. Most other teams of note are playing in both tournaments.

And all of this is somewhat pointless as posters here will continue to refer to both tournaments as the "State Cup anyway."

Anonymous said...

But I should add that, by the time both of these tournaments whittle the field down to the semifinalists, both will have 4 very good teams playing.

Anonymous said...

But then again, maybe not as I'm not sold on likely semifinalists Mainland (NJ Cup) or Logan (State Cup) as "very good" teams.

I suppose there's room for debate about these two.

Anonymous said...

"Most other teams of note are playing in both tournaments."

Not all of them. Mainland won last year's State Cup but I don't see them on the list of teams this year.

Anonymous said...

Going back to the posts here a while back about Gottschee playing a "qualifying" game for the State Cup, I believe you must have played at least 3 NJ teams over some recent time range to qualify. So that might explain why Parsippany is not in this one as they play in that NY league.

Not sure why Rooney passes on the NJ Cup but they didn't play in it last year either.

Odd that Mainland isn't in this year's State Cup to defend their championship.

But for the most part, the good teams in the state play both.

And for whatever it's worth, GS recognizes the State Cup winner as the State Champ.

And Mainland has bowed out as well having lost to Princeton Spurs.

April 5, 2016 at 11:48 PM
"And I think we may see some upsets on the left side. I actually think NJ Force has a shot to get to the semifinals from the upper left and maybe even one of the Princeton teams from the lower left."

Pardon me while I take a bow!

If DOL gets to the final I will lose it, and there's a very real chance of that happening

No worries. No one will remember which team got shellacked in the final.

The schedule for the remaining 4 NJ Cup 2nd round games:

EB vs. Elizabeth - 4/14 (8:00, Heavenly Farms Complex)
Parsippany Blue vs. Mt. Olive - 4/15 (8:00, Central Park, Morris County)
SJEB vs. Princeton NPL - 4/16 (4:00, Hammonton)
MF Black vs. Voorhees - 4/18 (8:00, Mercer County Com. Col)

EB, Parsippany and MF Black all seem likely to advance to me. Who knows about SJEB and Princeton?

I remember that EB got shellacked in last year's final. Although I didn't see the game and still wonder how that could have happened (even with a red card).

Gottschee has weird issues. In their state cup game they went with 2 subs one of which was injured. They were short 2 starters including their striker and couldn't score. They seem like a part-time club at times and it leads to inconsistency.

the comment about "any of the top teams in nj could beat them by 3-5 goals" was referring to staten island gunners, not parsippany white who beat them 5-1, which was mentioned after someone stated "Should be easy match for Staten Island" and "I would probably rank them 4 or 5 In the state over parsippany blue." parsippany white is not a top team in the state, but would not get hammered by any of them, as seen in the tsf game

Anonymous said...

Well, I would have though the same but it seems like Parsippany White is one of the only teams to beat Staten Island by a large margin. Staten Island beat Princeton Tottenham and DOL, tied New York SC and Brentwood, and lost to TSF, NJ Force, SDFC, and Copa all by one goal. So that statement of "any of the really good teams in NJ could beat them by 3-5 goals" is not right. Staten Island's high press is difficult to deal with for many teams.

Gottschee beat DOL in a game that wasn't as close as 2-0 makes it seem.

Anonymous said...

SI Gunners started the match against Parsippany White with just 9 and only added a 10th about midway through the 1st half.

Regardless, SI Gunners were up 1-0 at the half! However, they lost by a big score.

Credit to SI Gunners for showing up ready to play, regardless of how many you had.

Credit to Parsippany White for "righting the ship" in the second half and getting the kind of result (5 - 1) expected!

The scrimmage that the TSF person said a while back was a lie because gottschee has not played any scrims. I'm a parent of the Roma team and I can promise you we haven't. If they say they did play gottschee we'll show me a video or pictures because we always record our games.

I was at the gottschee v. DOL game. It wasn't that much of a close game, gottschee missed so many shots including one where the number 10 chipped the keeper but hit the crossbar and went out. Also a lot of their shots just went near the side bars. But the one thing I did question was the disallowed goal that the ref called in the first half. He said it was an offside when the the player behind the defense let the ball go through so that the teammate on side could score. Although I did say before that it wasn't that much of a close game it was difficult for gottschee to get through the defense in the first half. The first half was probably the closes part of the game. Second half was the part where I say it wasn't a close game because DOL couldn't pass the half unless by blasting the ball to gottschee's side so that the keeper could get the ball.

TSF has a high opinion of themselves but time will tell.

Anonymous said...

TSF has been very fortunate with their two NJ Cup wins. But you shouldn't blame them for that. There's nothing wrong with good fortune and just about every team that wins gets some along the way.

And if EB is as diluted as claimed, the top right of this bracket turned out to be disappointing as well.

Anyway, no way TSF can win this one. Good fortune is often fleeting!

I see Parsippany took care of Mt. Olive last night as expected.

So unless Voorhees can pull an "Elizabeth" on MF Black, the Parsippany/MF Black semifinal should be the best one the NJ Cup has to offer this year.

Looks like Gottschee vs MF Black tomorrow is the game to watch in the nj state cup

Anonymous said...

I hope that's true because I was at their game today and New Jersey force took out 3 of gottschee starting players. The ref did a poor job once the first kid got injured and thus two more kids did from gottschee. I don't expect gottschee to do well knowing that they lost a midfielder, main forward, and their key center back.

State Cup SJEB 4-0 over Princeton

Anonymous said...

The concerns about EB look to be legit as they were knocked out of that other State Cup today by STA.

And newcomers MF Blue and SDFC are both gone here too after falling to Mainland and Logan.

But I keep harping on the draw here as Monroe (who I don't recall winning a game since U12) have made the quarterfinals and await the winner of the MF Black/Gottschee matchup. And one of STA NPL, STA Athletico or Arsenal Maximus will make the semis.

All we can hope for now is a decent final in this one. What a mess!

Anonymous said...

Who cares about the draw. The best should make it through anyway whether they play each other in an early round or beat the weaker fodder first. It will be the same usual teams in the end and probably the same complaints about refs, red cards, parents, field conditions. Are you expecting anything different?
And yes, agree, EB on the decline, MF Blue not there just yet and good to see the newcomers SDFC and Monroe.

Anonymous said...

"Who cares about the draw(?)"

Did you miss this part?

"And one of STA NPL, STA Athletico or Arsenal Maximus will make the semis."

When the brackets are set up so that stronger teams knock each other out in the first round while less accomplished teams need only to beat each other to advance to the semifinals, you have a poorly organized event. The idea is to give the stronger teams an opportunity to compete when the championship is in sight. Not when they still have to win 3 or 4 more games to get there.

So this one won't have "the same usual teams" in the end as a number of them are already gone and at least one team that no one could have possibly expected will get, at most, just one game from the final.

And the NJ Cup isn't that much better as the "lower left" bracket didn't include enough of the strongest teams. Sorry, but neither SJEB or Princeton Spurs have ever shown me anything that looks like what I'd expect from a State semifinalist.

The organizers made a mess of both of these, although the NJYS debacle is the worse of the two.

Anonymous said...

So what if stronger teams play in a first round or semis? The cream will rise to the top. Doesnt matter if they play each other early or late. Eventually they will have to play one another. Unless the it's an ego thing or a point thing with you. Which it sounds like. Some may like the cinderella STA or Arsenal story. Sounds like sour grapes. Were you eliminated today? If so, sorry. If not, you should enjoy the weaker teams still being around so you can beat on them next week.

Anonymous said...

It's not a "Cinderella story." It's poor organization.

Can't imagine how you are missing the obvious here. The NJYS State Cup quarter finals will include only 8 of the 25 teams that entered the competition. Yet this year, 3 of them will be teams that no one would have dreamed were good enough to accomplish this. And it's not because Daveys knocked of Goliaths. It's because Daveys knocked off other Davey's while the Goliaths took care of each other.

So this is really 3 "Cinderella stories" if you wish. And that's way too many Cinderellas for the competition to have much validity. Sorry, but there just aren't that many silver slippers to go around.

I think you're probably right. But I won't be shocked if Parsippany gets through.

Either one of them will beat TSF.

Agreed. And then Rooney over MF Black in the final.

Anonymous said...

MF Black are in both state cups? Talk about a need for points. I'll never understand why there isn't one concrete state cup but I don't see MF winning either one. Lose to PDA Rooney in final of NJYS state cup and lose to TSF in NJ Cup (if they get past Parsipanny which is no easy task).

Anonymous said...

There was just one state cup until about 8 years ago when good old American competition (on the business side) kicked in. The USYS (ie: NJYS here in NJ) State Cup was the clear State Championship until this point.

But then along came US Club Soccer to compete with them. And over the ensuing years, the automation they offer (along with better customer service in general) created competition. Simple fact is that US Club became significantly easier to deal with than their more traditional competitor.

So now we have two State Championships with the US Club version called the NJ Cup (as opposed to the more traditional State Cup}. and some teams qualify for entry in only one of these (although most can play in both).

In the end, it probably all works out okay...unless Rooney (who doesn't play the NJ Cup) and TSF or Parsippany (who don't play the State Cup) are the winners, Because if this happens then we don't know who the real champ is.

any other good nj cup fixtures besides parsippany match fit? that should be an interesting match and i wouldnt be surprised to see extra time or a single goal win for either side. i say 1-1 and maybe parsippany slips through but MF are looking like favorites

"Logan Blackjacks win the NJYS State Cup, no questions asked"

Well of course! Considering the highest ranked flight the Logan Blackjacks have ever won was a four team flight at the NYC Cup, who else could possibly win the State Cup?

Let me put it this way...if Logan wins the State Cup, I'm going to have to move the family to another State to avoid the embarrassment.

Looking at Logan's recent history, I see they played in the top flights at 2 weekend events last month. One was the EDP Easter Showcase and the other was APC Premier.

In these two events, Logan won 0, drew 0 and lost 6 times. They scored 3 goals in these matches while conceding 15.

So clearly, this is a powerhouse of a team that is not only certain to win the NJYS State Cup, but should heavy favorites to win the National Championship.

Nothing like "having it all."

Calm down. Looking at Logan's recent history, they are more than qualified to win the NJYS State Cup. It was you that put "national championship" in the same sentence. Sheesh. Like any NJ team is capable of that.

Logan Blackjack Parent:

I appreciate your enthusiasm and I am sure that there is talent on your squad like all teams. In all reality, any team can beat the other on any given day in every sport including club soccer. No argument there. These boys are playing their hearts out in every game and giving it 110% in every game. Unfortunately, too many parents take this way too seriousl too the point where there is anymosity & insults. If your boys knew how ridiculous your posts were, they would be mortified. Just enjoy!

EB has lost too many players to pro clubs and academies.

Unless they do some heavy recruiting, they will continue to fade away.

However, kudos to them for creating a program that has showcased players
and allowed them to move onto better development opportunities.

At the end of the day, isn't this what we want for all our kids?
