I find it funny how people are so conficent they know who posted what. There is a post that says all the talk is between Brick and COPA. I looked at Brick gotsoccer account and there is no record of them ever playing. Brick and COPA are not located near each other so they are not competing for the same player.

So why someone things these two teams are basing each other is beyond me.

Clearly there are a few trolls out there they post as if they are on a team to stir the pot because they get their kicks that way.

I would say 2% of what is posted on this blog is accurate.

No one calls her the manager except you. YOU have a problem with her, and that is up to you. YOU keep coming on here to say horrible things about her, but it is only YOU. Get over it, you didn't make the team and it hurt your feelings. Do you really think that it was her decision? Get over it.

Copa told slick no....Brick threw him out. Thats the only connection between them

Been reading this blog for a while now. Still no clue who Slick is.

1. Was at brick?
2. Rejected from Copa???
3. Then at IGFA?
4. Now at Match Fit?

Or is any of the above not correct?

Brick is a very good team and one that we always used as a yard stick to see how much our girls were improving. Gap has narrowed a bit for them - not quite as dominant it seems - but then-- who is?

Anonymous said...

Brick actually scrimmaged Copa maybe a month ago, If I remember reading correctly brick won something like 2-0 in not much of a contest.

Anonymous said...

Brick & Copa have played each other twice in EDP over a year ago but the trans are different now & that's a long time ago. I also know that Brick coach has a friendly relationship with RA from Copa & is friends with former coach so can't imagine Copa would be on here bashing Brick it's someone with a grudge that they just cannot get past. Don't know who slick is but sounds like a jerk & someone that wears out his welcome fast. I also know the manager from Freehold is not a popular person in this age group with obnoxious comments & screeching voice yelling things that don't make sense.

She would fit in well at her age group.

will also be able to fit in well with Matchfit u14's

quality of that team is made up of girls that could not get enough playing time at PDA. perfect fit.


I watched very closely when her GFA u12 team came into PDA for a league game and they got beat badly 6-0 by younger PDA team.

She was a non factor. Comment from parents watching was that she needs a lot of work but is a good athlete and has a good left foot.

i understand no names are being mentioned but the soccer u13 world is small is easy to trace

The issue with the whole topic is that she is the one on here looking for the attention. no one talks her up except self...very few know of her accept those teams she has played for. the supervision needs to be better handled by those directly involved with her soccer endeavor. They did loose 6-0 after playing three consecutive games after 4 consecutive days of training bd call on GFA's end. No need to play so many games and train within a short amount of time.

This is the u14 blog , why we are talking about younger age teams? Who cares?? And who cares about this phenomenal girl? She is playing u13 right ? So please slick when u open this blog click the right age group.
I know you want attention also here but she is not ready for this level and I do not care what she did or didn't do with the younger teams.

A phenom can simply be ahead a year or two, but then hit a plateau and the others all catch up. No longer a phenom when that happens.

Anonymous said...

Girl hasn't played for Brick since U-10 so I doubt they miss her & GFA didn't need her as she wasn't the best player on that team which is why she dropped an age group even though she is grade appropriate because Daddy wants her to look great & that cannot be done in this age group.

Anonymous said...

10:03.

What does grade have to do with anything?

Either you are age appropriate or not.

Some parents keep their August babies back a grade, some parents push them forward. same kid different grades. High level soccer is based on age and physical maturity as well as mental maturity not grade.

Girl in my daughters class skipped a grade and she plays club ball with her age not her grade. she is not physically mature enough yet.


and guess what whether you are u14 or u16 or u13.All these girls catch up in next 5 years so not sure of your point about not playing Grade.

I would say that if she is playing her age and excelling then she has got a very good future ahead of her.

Why all the hate?

Brick doesn't miss anybody. The coach only cares about the coach and promoting himself as some top notch soccer guy. Give me a break, did he ever play above the rec level is the question. Too controlling of a person. team plays way too many games, surprised that team doesn't suffer more injuries.

My daughter has played against brick for many years. I have dealt with the coach when he was coordinating I think JAGS a while back. I've always found him to be a good guy and seemed like a decent enough coach.

Anonymous said...

"Brick and GFA overtrain.

Haven't figured out that more is not always better."

The fact that Brick trains more than other "top" teams, is exactly what allows them to stay near the top, and continue to compete with anyone. They may not have the same talent level as some of the academies, but they are in better shape and get as many touches on the ball as they can to narrow the gap. It works for them.

Anonymous said...

I love how people pretend to know people on here when it's clearly someone trying to take the heat off of themselves. Brick coach somehow works, coaches 2 teams & has I believe 6 kids but he has time all day to respond to a bunch of idiots who hide behind anonymous give me a break. Not sure what the sour grapes are but I'm sure he'd laugh if he knew so many people were interested in what he's doing. Why don't you email him & ask what he are for lunch?

PDA usually places their 2nd and 3rd tier teams in this cup, ECNL teams don't play in it.

Brick and TRIC play again, I think that may be the one being mentioned. I think TRIC upset them last year.

Anonymous said...

If my recall is correct...TRIC did upset Brick.. also sent Force into retirement.
With the infusion of the Force players, Brick may get a few wins this year, the draws are killing them! 14-15-15
But don't forget.. the rumor of Brick going into PDA Shore was most likely true? Their roster was thin.
So in conclusion... the Force players may have saved Brick for another year, takes time for a team to gel.
We will see in the fullness of time!

Anonymous said...

Rumor of going to Shore was true as Brick coach ran the PDA tryout but decided not to go there afterwards. We were told he was being hired to coach the team @ tryouts if he decided but was told he decided to stay in Brick for this year.

PDA must be lowering their standards for coaches if they were going to hire him!

So much negative talk about other teams must mean there is nothing positive to talk about on your own teams so it should be easy to see who falls in that category after 3 EDP games & no wins. Who else can you connect Wildcats, Brick & Force comments? If you think cats aren't good then why to you waste time thinking about them? Again back to my 1st point there must be nothing positive to talk about with your team which is why you have do much time to think about other teams & what they are doing. Get a life of your own.

MF seems to have something going as they are competing and winning against good teams It will be interesting to see how the ECNL season plays out. PDA will win its fair share if games. Playing Bucks, Penn Fusion, WC, CFC , Stars of MA, Boston Breakers........ Is a bit different than Copa, TSF, New Hyde Park, NJ Stalions, STA.............

Thanks 10:34

Anonymous said...

What area are you from?

Anonymous said...

i can predict the future for nj ecnl for next 2 years

-PDA will fall to MF as top ecnl team in nj as MF will acquire more of the available top players from the town & 2nd tier academies looking to get into the ecnl. This will make MF become even stronger next year.

-PDA will not take advantage of this causing their down fall for U14-15 because they will be loyal to the current roster for these years (as u17-18 are really the important years). This will force all top girls to tryout for MF. Then by u16 loyalty goes out the window as PDA will once again make an effort to be top nj encl team, by acquiring available top players & cutting/moving down the current.

-Both ecnl teams by u16 (players 1-11) will consist mostly of players not developed by either club for more than 2 years (so acquired).

Remember it's "all about development & scholarships" sales pitch.

-Parents from both club eat crow when they find out their kid is actually not a "top" player just a "very good" player and the academy need their $$ for the last 5+ years to make the biz run. Parents $$ could no longer keep the reality from coming true. They will be complaining "we paid $$ for many years so are kids earned (paid$$) the right to be on the u16-18 teams"; but in the end will have to go back to a town/2nd tier academy (a few actually at or near the same level)or move to a lower PDA team (which is actually worst then the some of the town teams so why would you pay for this?).

Parents don't worry the beak (past blog comments) is the hardest part to swallow.

oh .. sorry no soccer scholarship either



PS
lottery numbers for a future pick will be: 5,22,26,34,41,48

Anonymous said...

While the general premise is right, I think the current 1-11 have a good shot to stay because they will already be playing some of the best. They may drop to the bench though which will be just as traumatic.
No doubt many excellent players will come out of nowhere now that showcase years are on the near horizon.
PDA definitely needs some competition for the talent draw to keep them working in the best interest of the girls rather than just for profits. Their past success is largely from lack of any alternatives - that's why some go to PA teams, but that's not an option for many.

How often does a true impact player- potentially national quality id2 etc- "come out of nowhere"?

Anonymous said...

To the parents displaced they come out of nowhere. There are a lot of NPL players and a few girls from other teams that are better than PDA current players. They may not be ready for travel and time commitment, but may be very ready when they know it's a better spot to be.

Anonymous said...

every parent thinks they Have id2 quality patent but the fact of the Mattter is that there are not many "game changers"..

Most good quality players are interchangeable. The type of player the coach desires will depend on the system the coach is playing.


When a game changer comes along , whether it's a defender or midfielder or striker, most parents see the difference on the field in that position.


So no , not many game changers will come along, despite parents wishful thinking. The parts will be interchangeable., and therefore not so easy to make an ECNL team as you may think. Unless of course you are truly a game changer.

You should have gotten their earlier!

Anonymous said...



PDA has ECNL players playing on their High School Teams. Not sure about Match Fit. What parents may want to think about is, "Does playing in highly physical, less skilled games a smart place for my child to play. If they are in the starting 11 for either MF or PDA, so a total of 22 for any age group. College coaches really ignore High School soccer, at least that is what they say (the college coaches)

Costs, not sure but have heard MF is between $10K to $12K per year. Never have heard what PDA but I'm sure in the same range.

If your daughter is good enough to be in the first 11 for one of these teams, and she would like to be considered as a potential recruit for a top D1 school then go for it. But if she falls outside of that range, then you will have to decide if it is worth the investment. Of course this is just one person's opinion.

In the end, just do your homework. Go watch a couple of games and training sessions to see the quality of each. How players are treated, demeanor of coach and trainers, at games and training. You will see how much the starting 11 play and how often the end of the bench gets to show their ability. Don't just go to tryouts and make the 25 - 32 player roster, not knowing where she may fit in that pool of players. Could be a very risky proposition, not to mention the potential blow to you daughters confidence if she is getting limited playing time and is not often on game day rosters.

Good luck

Anonymous said...

833 are you kidding? look at MF, acquired many new players this year; totally different results thus far as compared to last year. Many kids will be displaced over the next 2 yrs and if it goes free as the boys side is now, many more will be displaced. I know of at least 25 girls who could make these teams if they tried out. Watch out they will doing so in the next 2 yrs. I think many would agree.

Anonymous said...

Girls side will never be free. The boys side is now free because the boys academy system takes it direction from US soccer where ECNL is a private organization and was not formed by US soccer. The girls teams at the boys academy programs as well as the boys 2nd and 3rd teams fund the top free boys teams.

Anonymous said...



Neither PDA nor MF will ever be free?

On the boys side the only real academy in NJ is Red Bull, They cover the costs for the players in the academy. Will not happen on the girls side, who would fund it. What a ridiculous statement. Both are Pay to play and will remain that way.

Does not cover Winter training & you will get a bill after every tournament for the coaches exspenses which is why if you are rostered to everything it's get up there in cost. PDA is much less $2,600 & no extra hidden costs.

i dont know if I would say PDA is much less, but there are surely outside training costs that are not included. M.O'N. even says that you can not be elite by just going to three practices a week with your team, in order to BE ELITE you must do some kind of outside training and there are tons of outside PDA training that are recommended, especially if you want to BE ELITE (get it?)

Anonymous said...

Cannot be just a goalie issue. The defense is a major factor as well as simply keeping the ball. Besides, there must be a very good backup - even if it was the Hornets goalie. It's PDA. They "develop" the best.

win/lose by 1-2 goals you are in the right bracket..if more move up or down. Is it time to replace pda with one of those other top nj teams in ecnl who will provide a better challenge and help development for the other clubs?

Anonymous said...

I must assume that is said tongue in cheek because we all know that despite their recent issues, Splash is undoubtedly ECNL level team. It is ironic and a little amusing to see them eat crow when they railed so hard about MF not being at that level based on lopsided losses. Hopefully this is a dose of reality to the team and grounds them a little. Refusing to shake hands and leaving second place trophies as garbage is way too arrogant. A wake up call was probably due.

The shifting of the PDA landscape is very interesting to me. No one can dispute that PDA is a top club and will always have formidable teams but now you will see a competitive shift at each age group. I believe that the ecnl teams at each age group will have to stand on there own merit and coaching schemes . The coach of a particular age group will matter in the outcome of best ECNL team in NJ. You can't just load up on talented kids and expect to win the region. The coach of the splash is a coach that has always had his pick of the best kids in the area but I believe that parents now have his number both as a leader of a coaching system and as the leader of a team. And some are justing opting for a different alternative. This is not on The kids of this team. This sits solely on the shoulders of the coach of the splash.

He built the system in which they have decided to play in.

It's funny, "Know Everything Guy" is finding excuses - for PDA. Check other NJ teams how they played the teams you just lost and compare your results.

How many players left Splash this year?

Anonymous said...

8:!9.

You hit the nail right on the head.

Splash will win their share of games but they will not dominate any team in their ECNL region. Talent is pretty nicely spread out now as a lot of talent is coming into the ECNL.

The Coach and the system will make the biggest difference in the Success of the team.

This is not on the girls! It's on the coach.

The coaches older teams struggle on the national Level.

Because talent is catching up quickly on the younger teams, PDA may struggle at the regionally level.

You're all wrong. He is the best trainer and knows all the best talent. Just ask him.

ECNL is a top league for top talents for those who want to go in that direction. Not saying it its good or bad, that's not the point of this post. I think a few things have finally caught up with PDA Splash. Could lack of consistent play not have the girls in game shape(not physically, but the mental part of the beautiful game). Everyone keeps talking about how they "duck" competition. Yes, they won eclipse (in early August), a top tourney in the country bar none. I think they skipped Stars, they skipped Spirit. You can scrimmage and train all you want internally but when you have another team on the otherside of the ball, its different. Style of play; their aggressive first to the ball then play into the corners simply do not work when other teams have top talent back line. Set pieces are also part of their arsenal but the little speedsters cannot win most battles against girls who are now 3,4,5 inches taller, but with skill. BB by his own admmission also never had open try outs until this year because the club made him (why would he all he did was win). Maybe one of the biggest things is intimidation factor. Usually when that light blue PDA jersey faces lesser teams, those teams might already be beaten by reputation alone. In ECNL, no teams fear anybody and now that the almighty PDA is 0-3, I am sure its quite the opposite and clubs are smelling blood in the water. As a parent whose player plays against PDA, its an added bonus for those smug PDA parents to be humbled and eat a little crow.
Good luck to all the teams in their seasons and in state Cup, just my opinion.

Anonymous said...

I agree with everything you just said except smug parents. There is 1-2, every team has them in every sport. You are obviously basing your opinion on looks and assumptions. I assure you, besides the aforementioned 1-2, you are way off. As you pointed out earlier, I think you may be falling prey to the intimidation factor as well. Try a clean slate. Good people who want the same for their kid as you do.

Anonymous said...

Agreed 10:20

Don't make it personal to the parents.

Analyze the coaching and the system.

Everyone in the area now knows how this team plays and if you have equal talent(talented back line-good technical players that know how to pass and talented strikers, It is easy to beat this system.

I am sure the coach will blame it on the kids but they are doing what they've been taught and now that every coach in the area has their number, it is pretty easy to defend.

They will do much better against teams out of the area where they can employ their tactics.

Anonymous said...

OK, here is something you seldom see if ever on this blog...I apologize to those other 98% of PDA parents for lumping you in with the bad 1-2.
If you look at that ECNL conference, there are no lesser teams out of the area they can take advantage of. East Meadow, so far undeafeated. Stars and Breakers in Mass, always solid teams. MF, NJ v NJ braging rights. If you go by last years records they probably under estimated WC. They obviously got stronger as did all the other ECNL clubs. There will be no cheap wins for club. Over the top or dump in the corner are not good tactics if thats your main style of play. IMHO, they better learn good technical clean possession soccer (and quick). Someone stood up to Iron Mike Tyson's tough bully persona once and he was never the same.

EDP north just as strong as ecnl ,HBC won spirit,beating top ecnl teams

Anonymous said...

No they are not.. HBC a nice team but just becacuse they won one major tournament in their history - doesnt make them the end all- be all.

That team may be able to compete in the ECNL but then again maybe not.

It will be a tough grind.

perhaps They may make an argument to replace east meadow as that team is weak, even though they are off to a good start. toughest part of the schedule is ahead of them.

thanks for that bit of self promotion HBC parent. Yay us!!

Saying the whole EDP north is "just as strong" as the whole ECNL league is dillusional.

We have played COPA twice in the last month. We won 2-1 at spirt by scoring 2 late goals, we tied them 2-2 and were winning 2-0 before giving up 2 late goals. Two good games.

The one called ID2. I wasn't aware that there was more than one organization with camp called the same. I believe it's us club soccer. I read the blurb on the us club soccer website, but wondered if anyone had a kid participate in the past. Is it really good? what does it mean on the soccer resume? How do you get your kid included etc. BTW kid plays EDP

Anonymous said...

It's the us club version of odp to be simplistic. Coaches recommendations typically.

Anonymous said...

ECNL has there own ID2 program under U.S club.

EDP has there own program as well.

The goal is the same. Find talent no matter where they play.


Anonymous said...

HBC parent, its great that you won against ECNL, but your statment was about the EDP North. I am sure you are a good team, but here is the difference as much as all teams want to win, the tournaments are your lifeblood. yOu need the almighty GS points. ECNL couldn't care less and maybe just used it as a warm up for the season. As I said I am sure everyone wanted to win but when the NY Yankees play Virginia Tech in Spring Training, VT is dying to win and the Yankees just dont want to get hurt as they have bigger fish to fry.

I am not sure what your argument is.

Is your argument that HBC can play in the ecnl.

OK. no problem with that-or is your argument that the edp league is better than ecnl.

That is not even close on national regional and national platform- My god man, Just look at the clubs involved.

If you want HBC to join the ecnl then come on, the more quality teams the better.

But please stop the league crap.

Haven't been to the site in a while, came to see if there was some comedy...................

Not much, where has all the banter gone?????

Very little if anything on State Cup draw, except two good comments

Blind draw - don't believe it!

Where is GFA? And still no response..........Did the coach forget to register?

What about PDA Hornets? Or will they only do the US Club where they control the brackets?

Very Early Predictions ---

Real vs Freehold in Second Round a good match up - Think Real may take it in a close physical game.

Copa will advance to play NJ Stallions......But think NJ Stallions will beat COPA

Toss up between Real and NJ Stallions

TSF vs Wall........More than likely TSF, unless they lost players to GFA

Holmdel get a walk through drawing Jackson then Moorestown (the team with the coaches with matching outfits --- kind of like kicking & screaming movie, just saying) But early results show Holmdel not what they were last year.

TSF vs Holmdel could be a good match.

NJ Rush vs NJ Wildcats ---- very interesting match.......Two teams that have some talent and play a very physical style of soccer. It is a pick'em. But given what I read about Wildcats - They seem to be playing well, running up the score in their games........

Brick vs TRIC ----- Same bat channel....I don't think that TRIC can ring that bell twice, Brick wins in an ugly game.

Then Brick vs SJEB, don't these teams play each other every other week? I will take SJEB.....Just to get a rise out of the brick coach.................

STA may lose to Stronghold.....So predict and upset of sorts and will take Stronghold to advance and then will knock off Watchung.

NJ Crush has an easy road to Stronghold.

I will take Stronghold again in upset...........................

so that makes it

NJ Stallions vs TSF/NJX

SJEB vs NJ CRUSH

Stallions vs SJEB

SJEB State Cup Winner.....

Again just for fun........


Where is the COPA Guy?

Yes we all know PDA is the best girls club in the NJ and the country....But on 11 can play at one time and all of the players can't play for PDA............

MF got better but we all knew that would happen.......it is the ECNL effect......................

Old Bridge is the best team and will soar to Disney and San Diego....Just not to play in tournaments...................

All just a joke.........Good Luck to all of the players, yes the players.....not all of you that place the meaningless posts on this site....(but do love it when coaches immediately respond to defend themselves.......That is high comedy ; ) )

Have a great fall season and stay healthy!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

3:38, maybe unknowing parents care about GS points but ECNL teams/clubs do not care nor chase GS points. We are in our own league with our own playoffs and our own national crown. Our league does not hand out points for merely being in the league. That is why if you know anything top teams like PDA, Michigan Hawks, San Deigo Surf, FC Dallas you will see their rankings all start to drop. The only points will be from showcase tournaments and ECNL final rankings, but points are minimal at best.

Anonymous said...

No. But it is a published RANKING of teams in your state.

We all know if Splash isnt on top it may not be totally accurate.

Still.......95% of you would like to be listed first

All you guys saying that the match fit phenom isn't that good...well it appears that the region 1 coach disagrees with you. She will be invited to odp national camp. The red list is already in and they will take enough of the blue list to make a roster of 25 to AZ.

My only question to you, is why are you so Invested in this player?


You are either the parent or the kid posting.

No one cares. There are many great players at this level. They are not being advertised on this Blog.

There are quite a few ahead of this girl. Also at the younger ages, there are many girls better, again not being advertised. Why the need for self promotion?

In the end, let it be, If you will go further, your play will determine how far, not what you post on a Blog.

I bet it would probably kill you if I named 3 players that were better than you even at the younger age goup.

And I know you know one of them because we have spoke of her. So please stop the nonsense and get off our Blog. Go back to your age group.


Why do you feel so empty?

regional pool goes to camp in nov-dec (i believe) @ pa, at the end of that camp girls are selected to go to the national pool camp in fl

yes that's true but in years past 9including last year) the kids on the red list are already in. they just don't make that completely known til after the December event because then some kids might not think their chances are good enough to grab on of the last few spots.

How many U14 girls from NJ?

Anonymous said...

I posted the link and am not the player's parent. I posted it because I read many times on this blog that the player was not that good. As recently as a few minutes ago. I believe that from the fact that she was chosen in the red '00 group at region 1 camp that she is an excellent player even in the u14 ('00) age group. There may be some '00 birth year U14 better no doubt, but bet there are not many better at birth year '01.

But its ODP.. who cares about a watered down pool.

National players come from ECNL now not ODP.

See U20 and U18 team.

She will battle for playing time on u14 team.
