7:39Posco won 1-0 in over time.
Congrats to TSF, but who cares about the NJ Cup?
10:16You sound bitter. Did your team not make it this far.
From one who been less than excited about TSF of late, I must congratulate then on their win over MF Black. That's 3 in a row against them, right?Also, and with all due respect to the Parsippany supporters, the TSF/MF match was really the best game of the tournament...so far anyway! The Parsippany/MF game should have been a semifinal. The TSF/MF game was the real final!
Well, how about give the Barons some credit for getting to the final, instead of saying the TSF vs MF game was the real final.
who won? TSF or SJEB?
SJEB in penalties
There you go, whoever said TSF vs MF should have been the final. Give teams credit where credit is due, and acknowledge that literally anyone can beat anyone in this age group. Let's stop being elitist and judging teams on their performance instead of predisposed, biased opinions.
The matchfit TSF game was 10x better
Sounds like you're being a sore loser.
Damn bunch of sore losers everywhere. Every time you don't win its the refs fault and the opposing team parked the bus, even though parking the bus is a completely respectable tactic that professional teams use and succeed with.
Unfortunately, there were a few games that have been decided by poor refs.Congrats to SJEB but this is as big of a fluke as Mainland winning the State Cup last Spring over PDA. I hate to agree but SJEB representing the state of New Jersey is somewhat of a farce. Please do not make us look bad!Good luck!
I watched the second half of the SJEB v DOL game. Ref was bad. DOL doing the usual flopping, rolling around on the ground, grabbing and playing chippy. SJEB just played physical and DOL didn't like it. Ref called a PK late in the game and Barons converted. Call it karma. DOL has won more games from diving in the box then 10 teams combined. Afterwords, players and coaching MF'ing the ref. Classy!!!
It's embarrassing for any players like us who play on a good team in the state
Congrats to SJEB, good for you!!
College coaches will no longer be spectators at NJ matches. What s shame!
seems like parsippany was the only team that couldn't park the bus successfully ! congrats to SJEB... I'm sure the rest of the teams in NJ won't be too thrilled with them going to nationals though in their place
It has very little to do with going to Nationals in their place..SJEB is just nowhere near a top team in the state and is in no way indicative of the talent that is in NJ. We did not play in the NJ Cup. TSF would have at least made NJ look respectable.
In terms of playing what we all call "the beautiful game" there is no team in NJ that plays more beautifully than Parsippany. In the few games I've seen them play, their possession and understanding of the game is incredibly fluid and a very high level. Based solely on playing style, they are the best team in the state.With that said, as the NJ Cup shows, playing "the beautiful game" and out passing the opposition does not necessarily produce results. If that were the case, Barcelona and Bayern would never lose. There is a certain sort of beauty in a team tactically getting results by playing to their strengths. Would everyone rather watch a Barcelona v Bayern game than an Aston Villa victory over Arsenal? Yes. But you still have to accept and respect the lesser quality team getting a victory. So stop being upset about SJEB winning NJ Cup and respect that victory.
So there's a challenge to all NJ teams!Play beautiful like Parsipanny and try to understand the game better than them.
Hey buddy your comparisons are dumb and biase comparing u16 youth teams to Barcelona is dumb but u You say parsippany is the best team in the state and they lost to matchfit and then say respect SJEB win.If you were at the game I would like the hear your input but u weren't but when my team plays parsippany and wins I'll be sure to tell you cause now there the best team in the state
Congratulations and respect to SJEB for winning. Did anyone notice they did not give up a goal the entire NJ Cup run. The won 2-0, 2-0, 1-0 and 0-0 in final. They earned the Cup. Upsets in sports happen, just look at Villanova beating North Carolina and who would have ever thought Leister City would win the EPL. The opponents that lost to them showed respect and congratulations. Same here for SJEB.
Add 4-0 to the wins SJEB had in the NJ Cup run. No allowing a goal in five games is impressive no matter who you play.
Don't forget about the NJYS State Cup this weekend as well
Don't pat yourselves in the back too much.They stacked the brackets heavily with the top teams on the right side and had the best teams eliminate themselves.Had the top teams been evenly distributed, SJEB would have been eliminated weeks ago.Let's see how they perform from this point forward to see if it was just a fluke like DOL and Mainland.
What is everyone's thoughts on the differnce between the US Club State Cup, and the NJYS State Cup? Which one determines the real State Champion?
You can only play who they put in front of you. Anyone can speculate on what if's. Fact are facts, they did well and deserve congratulations.
Thoughts on this upcoming weekends state cup matchups?
May 10 @10:07Get real coach. You're coaching youth teams in club soccer. Stop comparing youth teams to professional teams. Typical TSF attitude.
SJEB is best team in region... without a doubt best team in Marlton, NJ
Just wondering what team are you affiliated with
I will go with PDA over STA and Matchfit over Logan. PDA then beats Matchfit for the Cup.
Parents should be the first to behave on the sidelines and refs need to know how to handle them.
12:02"SJEB is best team in region"Which part of the world are you referring to?
SJEB won against TSF who is a great team. So SJEB did have a hard match and they proved themselves to win. Also this is because SJEB is the best.
Jared Schultes is the best looking kid on SJEB
UPDATE: Zach Garcia tore his acl and will not be playing anytime soon.
Markus Kern is the greatest player in the area
LSA is only bad because the son plays to much and the coach doesnt put in someone that knows what their doing on a soccer field. Very proud to whoevers on that team to put up with that crap well done.
Logan has one goal scorer and that is it. No one else scored and the coach plays his awful son the whole game. The bench is soft and relies too much on the starters who aren't anything special. MF black will easily cruise past them
I only wish SJEB would play out of another state to save NJ from utter embarrassment.
Logan Blackjacks has a great forward #3.MF Black should watch him play and offer him a spot on the MF roster.He does not belong on Logan Blackjacks.
When SJEB win the state cup and everyones salty because it wasnt them>>>
Utter embarrasment? You're probably terrible.
Out of all the flavors out there and you have to be salty come on
Logan is terrible
Logan gives me AIDS
Parsipanny don't deserve to be on a soccer field. If I had describe them it'd be: arrogant, bad, unprofessional, disrespectful, bad, and not a soccer team.
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.
Well this blog is completely useless now other than to find out results a couple hours before they are posted. We had a good run! To finish my time on the blog I will post my NJ top 8 and whether you will agree or not I do not know because after this I am done.1. PDA Rooney2. TSF3. MF Black4. Parsipanny5. Gottschee6. East Brunswick7. Logan Blackjacks8. MF Blue
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.
Unfortunately..this will be my last post on this blog and I am sure that other parents will agree..It is very easy to distinguish an immature teenager from a father who simply visits the blog to get information about upcoming events, etc. The previous four posts are somewhat pathetic and is not what this blog is meant to be.Administrator of this blog: please do a better job removing inappropriate posts that are irrelevant and offending.
pretty sure SJEB got the penalty before the red card so firsy get your shit together and facts straight before speaking.
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.
SJEB won because they got lucky with there penalties except for that one they missed which that man has missed previous pks
It's their** by the way, are you even literate. It seems unlikely. TSF had some bad PKs. It's life buddy.
Considering TSF shanked a pk 20 yards over the bar and their second pk my mom could've kicked harder and the one the Barons missed was cause the goalie made a great save I think the term luck in inappropriate for this conversation
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.
We do it to bother that dads on this site that need a life
MF Black vs Logan should be a good game this weekend. They tied 3-3 in the preseason and since then I hear both teams have made significant adjustments to their game.
Logan's results in tournaments aren't the best but, they do play hard it won't be an easy win for MF Black but they will get the Win I believe. I see a PDA v MF Black final with MF Black winning.
I find it very interesting how Logan is the only good team in that whole club impressive how they're this talented coming from a mediocre club.
There is not one kid on the team that lives in Logan
Why all the hate on Logan I personally think they can be a top team in NJ they just need some work they have lots of potential.
SJEB were not even in the hardest state cup. Not real state champions and they cannot compete with the top teams in the region. This weekend will prove who the REAL state champ is and anyone one of the 4 teams left can win it.
I will post my NJ top 8 and whether you will agree or not I do not know because after this I am done.1. PDA Rooney2. TSF3. MF Black4. Parsipanny5. Gottschee6. East Brunswick7. Logan Blackjacks8. MF BlueSomeone 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. What the hell is nj stallions doing in the 5th bracket above teams like STA and Monroe that beat them 3-0 and 3-1 respectively. 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.
Don't speak for all parents. Do you think parents of Stallions team think they suck?
Yes... They lost 3-0 to Parsippany B team, who are not on the level of a MF B team
SJEB moving up to 3rd in the state
Better redo your top 8 then if SJEB 3 now.
Ha Ha TSF #2. TSF sour grapes because SJEB won.
That is blasphemous
A few changes already to the EDP Spring Showcase Brackets.And why are points being distributed for the Champions League when the season is not over? I am assuming that they adjust.

1:18 PMI 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.
The game has be over for about 4 days now why do you care so much they lost.
654 were u at the game the one thing TSF is not is a defensive style team but you probably know best
As a player on TSF we apologize to the whole state we saw sjeb and we we're like this is a joke but they worked hard and fouled the fuck out of us but hey that's soccer they didn't deserve to win but a close match was definitely what happened. We apologize to the state as its embarrassing for us parsippany matchfit pda etc to have them represent us.
Pretty sure I diced your whole team up in one play bro but that's none of my business tho TSF "player"🐸☕️
Man you think SJEB is so bad haha there the team going to Colorado and you guys rnt bc during the game instead of worrying about it you guys were to busy shoving your thumb up the refs ass asking for a call. A player on TSF even flipped off his other teammate so that was pretty fun watching and what was even more fun then that was winning the fucking state cup.
Don't talk about acting like a champion when this whole page is filled with sore losers
Be a leader not a follower, it will help you in life as well.
"Guard your tongue in youth, and in age you may mature a thought that will be of service to your people."
Last two comments are well said about life.
TSF was much better. SJEB won the game. I even think SJEB players/parents would agree that they were outplayed.
Time to move on from that game. NJYS State Cup games this weekend. Hope the four teams in it play well and good luck to all.
How was SJEB outplayed if the won? May i ask
Never possessed the ball, really had no opportunities. Have you never been to a game where the team that played better lost?
If TSF is so sure you should've won, you should be embarrassed that you couldn't put Barons away. Why should Barons be embarrassed? Better luck next year sore losers.
I never said SJEB should be embarrassed, in fact they should be very proud of what they did. TSF is the better team, SJEB won the game. Pretty simple actually.
Looking forward to tomorrow's games. Any predictions. STA vs PDA and Logan vs Match Fit.
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!
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.
3:57Thank you for clarifying how much of a farce the Colorado Nationals are. Can we all please move on from SJEB? Who cares anymore? We did not participate in the NJ Cup so I have no hard feelings. Just tired of the conversation about a "Rec Team" Good luck to SJEB & good riddance?
"Rec team" Don't even know what that's supposed to mean. Are you trying to be funny?
3.57Nice back handed compliment. No one cares!
Well we can all agree we hate SJEB which is good
PDA wins over Logan 5-0 and MF down 3-0 so far
I meant to say PDA wins over STA 5-0 and Logan is beating MF so far 3-0
"MF Black should cruise by Logan easily"Logan 3-1 MF Black
I hate to recite what I've been saying all along but... anyone can beat anyone! MF probably the more consistent and 'better' team in terms of style, but Logan is in the semifinals of state cup for a reason. Don't forget to give teams credit where it is due, and Logan deserves a lot for that stellar performance today.
Going to be a physical battle tomorrow
Player #3 is all Logan have! They dump the ball forward to him and let him do the rest.He scored a hat trick today against a Swiss cheese MF defense.Let's see if they can do it again tomorrow.
If that is all they have. Then why was MF only goal a PK?? Seems to me they have a lot more than that
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.
6:50We 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 3Logan 0
How many MB Black starters were missing?The defense did look weaker than usual.
Logan goes up 1-0 30 seconds into the game. This one will be interesting.
PDA 2Logan 1
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: Rooney2: EB3: Millburn4: MF Black (NJ history only)5: Gottschee6: Marlboro7: TSF8: SJEB9: DoL10: ParsippanyPlease 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.
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.
"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.
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.
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?
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. There is not really another team other than PDA who constantly competed with these top teams.
East Brunswick had kids who went professional? Where? Are they still in HS?
6:59I am sorry to say but you sound like a bitter jealous father of a "rec" soccer player. As long as your son had fun and learned valuable life lessons should be enough to make you happy. I feel badly for people like you. This blog is not meant for people like you.
All Millburn players have left TSF to join the hugely disappointing SDFC team. Also, where did the MF black team come from? I know they were Princeton Black before MF but weren't they from Pennsylvania previously?
I know many of the players on Princeton Black came from the old Match Fit Chelsea squad.
5:40All Millburn Players? I believe only 5 or 6 players went to SDFC..the 2012 Millburn team went in different directions after the season..although a very bad start at SDFC, they are a brand new team at the u16 age group..
I wouldn't call SDFC hugely disappointing. Their results seem ok to me.Why do you think that?
Wow! Big shakeup in rankings at the bottom of the top 10 in EDP Central.
MF Black was Princeton Black after they first moved to NJ from PAE where they were Patriot Black.
"I wouldn't call SDFC hugely disappointing. Their results seem ok to me.Why do you think that?"I would agree that their results don't look too bad. But having seen them play on two different occasions, I wouldn't say they are fun to watch. As a matter of fact, it's looked pretty ugly to me.But they definitely play hard.
Gottschee beat PDA 4-3 with PDA trying to catchup after goin down 4-1
It's been said a million times on this blog.Any top team can beat each other on any given day, so this should not be a surprise.
Gottschee beat a PDA team comprised of U15 & U16's playing together. Rooney had at least 7 players not show that night.
Yeah whatever!!!Likely excuse.
Why would a team like PDA have 7 players NOT SHOW UP for a game? That wouldnt be accepted on a Bridgwater B team.
11:29Great point.. PDA Father:Just accept the loss & move on. Your players didn't show up. It doesn't matter. They got the "W" and you got the "L"
"Rooney had at least 7 players not show that night. "Maybe PDA Dad wasn't speaking literally, but figuratively instead?
wasn't there some disucssion before that you play whoever you play? whether they had 7 players show up or not, literally, figuratively or otherwise, there was a game to play. if pda is going to grouse about 7 players not showing up and losing a game, then they shouldn't be so smug when they beat a team who is playing injured or missing key players. eh whatever.
any updates on this weekend's tournaments?
SDFC and east brunswick in the final at delco tomorrow
EB beats SDFC 2-0!
We competed against quality teams!
And lost? Anyone can compete against quality teams and lose. The real quality teams win.
So join us in the top bracket next time. When was the last time East Brunswick was in a top bracket? Real quality wins in a second bracket with 20th ranked teams.But it is not about pushing players to their limits with you. It is about winning and points!Enjoy your hollow victory!
That's funny and such a lie that you don't care about pts and winning. Wasn't someone from TSF on this board screaming about how pts were getting their son into a D1 college program? No club cares more about pts and rankings than TSF. You can't win in the top flight but that's where you get the most pts. Don't worry, you can still get lots of pts for coming in fourth place.
Hey daddy what r u saying TSF never said anything about teams in the top bracket and we have been in the highest bracket at almost every tournament not gettin points so isk what your saying champ
I'm saying maybe you shouldn't be in the top bracket because your team never wins. Your results were better in the 2nd bracket. But you want everyone to believe you're a quality team.
Anyone competing in the top bracket in Potomac is obviously somewhat quality idk what your saying
Enjoy losing to better teams boys but your parents and coaches all tell you you"re top quality.
If ts aren't considered a quality team in the state who is just pda and parsippany
TSF is definitely a quality team. Not the best, but definitely quality. Some troller out here to just bash all the teams.
Hate to burst your bubble, but MF Black also played some tough competition. Tougher than what TSF played.
I c montaco fewster and northern United and TSF and they lost all those games TSF lost to montaco in overtime Manhattan in the last minute Loudon beat la premier and tied Dix hills twice and lost to Yonkers by one once and beat bryc I think their somewhat quality idk
Parsippany was at Potamac and they had better results than TSF so maybe TSF should stop bragging. They won 1 game.
Parsippany played a team TSF beat 6-1 and 4-0 wtf r u saying they were in the second bracket
I do not understand why TSF gets so much attention on this blog. What is so special about TSF? What do they offer that makes them superior to other teams in this age group? I am trying to figure this out. What am I missing?
NOTHING special about TSF.Someone just keeps bringing them up on this blog at an attempt to keep them relevant.
Gottschee put it on Black for a 2-0 win.
MF played one man down after a red card.Outcome would have been different if at full strength.
Matchfit played their reserves good try
Why would MF play their reserves?The EDP league is still up for grabs.
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?
will be interesting to see EDP showcase group of Parsippany, Gottschee, and SJEB next week
11:36MF 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.
8:50 am 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.
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.
Who cares where your from. You're disrespectful and your coach should talk to you about not embarrassing your club and family.
MF black played horrible this weekend they should pay people to play for them not charge them.
10:04 am Are you talking about MF? or just any team? Whether a coach plays his starters some or all of the time, that is his decision. But if you don't play your starters because you need to play the other players, then don't cry if you lose.
