I would pay some decent money to know who posted this. It's sad your life is so pathetic you come on a U14 soccer blog and hope young children lose games. I feel sorry for your kids and anyone that has to be in your life. Grow up.

Admin has totally lost control of this blog. Clearly a bunch of pathetic d-bags who post on this to cut up 13 yr old girls. This age-group should either be shut down or made non-anonymous or abusive IPs should be tracked and blocked. What would you poor pathetic scum do then to fill your empty void of a life if that where to happen?

Anonymous said...

So your daughter plays there and you are upset that other people dont view your team as you do. No one wished a loss, they predicted it.

Anonymous said...

"yes 3 b players and one was cut"

what would motivate you to say that about these girls? Instead of saying yes, but one is no longer playing, you managed to degrade all 4. You are trash sir/madam. I'm sure your Mia has already verbally committed to UNC. What a joke!!

Anonymous said...

Another clueless response looking to lure someone into more trash talk. Do me a favor people. Next time you bash another team or player call your daughter over and show her what you are about to post. Let's see how quickly her perception of you drops. Im a soccer dad looking for informative information on youth soccer. So sad that I have to go to the other age groups to find this info. Clearly the majority of parents of this age group are spiteful degenerates.

"3 B players and one............"

The whole team was B players, arguably....as they were struggling

This had to be an Americans parent, all high and mighty about their new locale.....

Hopefully the "yeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaawwwww" parent from the Americans didn't go to the Stallions. That's the biggest d-bag out there.

Anonymous said...

Ohhh yes he is. But before he was a D-bag, but now he's our D-bag, so lay off. I think its pure genius for him to yell "gooooo blue"...see what he did...he left off the blades part. so smart...I heard the rest of the team are getting nicknames to match their new american teammates...like speedy, maverick, pony, fox...btw, who's bringing orange slices.

Leave them alone. Players came from a high level town environment. Most were able to miss practices or winter training for basketball and birthday parties.

Anonymous said...

Pretty sure most academy players came from town teams originally. Torpedoes have been the source of numerous academy teams, Crush has been raiding that coffer for several years. Imagine if Torpedoes was ever smart enough to train all those girls.

Anonymous said...

Stallions will be the next strong entity in the state. Like the Americans but better and stronger. Our coach told us that already after seeing how well the girls worked together . If you are worried, well you should be.

Anonymous said...

Ironic the Stallions are showing as flight 3 at WAGS withe Mercer while Stronhold and Wildcats are second flight and REAL is top flight. Guess they don't believe the hype either.

Anonymous said...

Stallions are 2nd flight @ FC Stars but they shouldn't do well there as that flight is too high for them but then again MF ECNL in top flight & MF NPL in 2nd are jokes too but all those ECNL teams help each other, remember PDA flights? Stallions will not be as good as the Americans were because they were together a long time with a different coach/trainer so don't expect the same level of success & if they don't do well will they keep those Americans players they just picked up? Stay tuned.

WAGS must be real weak this year if Real is top & Wildcats made 2nd flight. Teams no longer doing WAGS I guess? Where is everyone going then?

WAGS has a lot of top teams going just not NJ too teams for some reason?

NJ top teams will be at EDP Cup.

7:18 what does your coach know about this age group and how can he compare? He hasn't coached in this age group and has no idea what awaits if and when you start competing against the top teams in NJ.

If you really believe that the 7:18 comment was from a Stallions parent then you are naive. Obvious troll impersonating to cause trouble.

Anonymous said...

You're right, let's all stay home in NJ and play all the teams we play during the season in EDP in the EDP Cup. That makes a lot of sense. And we'll still call ourselves the "top teams in NJ". Don't worry, Stallions will be moved to the top flight.

Anonymous said...

What's wrong with EdP cup? It will draw some out of state teams. They have a true south division and several quality clubs from NYE and Conn. Some clubs From PA are potential players. Does a team have to travel out of state to compete? Its not the parsipanny tournament for crying out loud.

Anonymous said...

Nothing is wrong with it, but at the same time, what is wrong with WAGS because some NJ teams aren't going? You people think the soccer universe revolves around NJ teams.

Anonymous said...

Not knocking WAGS - but what do NJ teams have to gain from another event in VA/MD. Most of the Clubs in NJ are NPL. They use events to prepare for their league. How it should be unless they are of age to go to showcase events.

Concentrate on your league and win the title to represent them in a National Event. Use events to prepare where ever they are.

Anonymous said...

I think the point about WAGS was usually there are a lot of top teams from NJ going there & this year they decided not to go for whatever their reasons were. No knocking WAGS as it is an excellent tournament.

Good dialogue folks. So about how many games on average should a team play per season? What will be considered overkill?

8:17 I agree and nothing wrong with a mini-vacation. Hopefully the entire family can join and a family isn't split.

That's my only complaint if I have one Dad goes with Girl to WAGS Mom goes son to local event. So what we did was split a family during a holiday weekend because the coach wanted change.

I don't see anything wrong with this from a soccer perspective but from a family perspective it stinks - lets face it more families have more than one child playing a sport. It is what it is and we all knew that going into this.

I kinda like the family splits. Very healthy.

Match fit team is very strong now with the new girl coming in. You will see at FC stars tourney, she makes the difference in that team.

So says her parents. She wasn't even a factor on an average IGFA team so get over yourself & how did she do playing U-12 for them? Look at that record.

Anonymous said...

She is ball hog. Looks great at practice but cone game time no difference and not a game changer because she doesn't pass the ball or plays a team game. Hopefully she changes her style for the better and plays as teammate. Then she will be great player because its not only about her.

She can't be the star her parents think she is in this age group as it's already been proven when she plays in this age group so she should go down to a much weaker age group to try to find success.

She is actually playing u15.

Anonymous said...

9:37.

I have two daughters , one in this age group and one in the u13's.

There are u13 players currently playing that are already being I'd for future potential for national team recognition.

You seem jealous of this player for some reason. sounds a bit personal.

Is she that much better than your daughter that you have to attack her with such venom.



Anonymous said...

Makes no sense that player wasn't dominate @ U-12 or U-13 this past year so she'll play up a year? Yeah that makes a lot of sense. Players need to be where they can actually develop which can't see how playing up 2 years helps this players development unless we are talking about a different player them the one from IGFA?

Anonymous said...

She is ok player and that's it. Many other players in the state are better or more important for the team.
There are no girls u13 that are ID's for potential national teams. Too early. But parents can dream. Just do not wake up!

Anonymous said...

I guess the real question is why all the hate over one player.?


Did she leave your team?



Anonymous said...

Can anyone from MF confirm if this girls is rostered at our age group or is she plaing up? What is her correct billogical age group? More importantly What grade is she in?

Anonymous said...

11:24 she actually joined my team! She is a goo player but I am kind of tired of this " promotional campaign". She needs to prove a lot before calling her " national potential" at this age. There is no hate, just relax and let's see what happen on the field

Anonymous said...

Let's be realistic. Why would anyone choose to sit out the fall with a U15 team (except maybe a tournament where you could guest anyway) instead of playing a full fall season with a U14 team. It doesn't make sense.

Stop all this stupid banter over a single supposed super star. It's not real talk. When (if) she joins the national team, wish her well. For now, stop already.

Anonymous said...

I think when ppl said she was playing up they meant at this age group, not u15! She is actually u13 and is mostly playing there. She is also rostered for u14 ecnl. She is grade appropriate for u14 (entering 8th grade in September) but because of the age guidelines for soccer she can play u13 or u14, with u14 being "up." Now leave her and her family alone. Just let her play....would you like ppl talking about your daughter?

Anonymous said...

Hey I was agreeing that the talk should stop. I just pointed out that the comment from 946 last night about U15 didn't make sense and people should stop falling for unrealistic bait. We should all cheer for anyone that might make the national team - if you don't, go back to your country instead.

Anonymous said...

Seems to be a lot of sour grapes over this one girl and perhaps a little self promotion.

Parents of previous team(s) can be a bit bitter.

Usually it is attached to jealousy and the perceived advantages a player had on a team or teams. It can also be fueled by the influence of a dominant parent.

The truth of the matter is that this player is good enough to make a contribution on an ECNL team.

She will play on age and be a very nice player and PERHAPS a difference maker at the u13 level.

She will get the opportunity to play up which will help her to increase her speed of play and most importantly her soccer IQ.


There are numerous player at u14 level that are ahead of at the u14 level and quite a few at the u13 level. Especially in the soccer IQ department. but this certainly does not mean that she is not talented.


At u14 she can help a team like Matchfit but might take a lesser role on a team like PDA.


She would of course help any u13 team.

So, please cut the player a break and her family.

Let her and her family enjoy their youth soccer journey.


Players will change so fast in next two years. Enjoy the ride!






Anonymous said...

It's the parents on her self promoting her as they have at all the 5 Clubs she has played for. When she's not the best player or treated as such parents move her. Sad for the player that does have ability but that is why the player has never become a complete player which is why she struggles against top teams. Better suited for U-13 in a much weaker age group. Good luck to the player & hopefully she has finally found a home that suits those parents.

Anonymous said...

You do realize that there are some very talented girls in the so called weak age group of u13.

It sounds like you are putting down the whole u13 state of NJ.

I would be very curious how your team would fare against a high quality u13 team?

Unless your daughter plays for one of the top 5 teams in NJ. your team might have all they can handle playing a top u13 team.


Just saw Crush u13's beat up on Crush's u14 team.

while the u14's team may not be a top 5 team they certainly are top 15 in this age group.

I've also seen the Matchfit ecnl team play up and beat up on so called top 15 teams at the u14 level.

The same can be said for NJX.

I wont even mention PDA as they are on a different level altogether.


So what team does your daughter Play for? If it's not one of the top 5 teams perhaps, I can arrange a scrimmage.

Really......you have seen NJX play older teams and beat them? You make it sound like this happens all the time. I highly doubt this.

crush was the exact opposite to what happened to stallion this summer. Stallions gained players and SC is supposed to take an actual active role in coaching while crush lost a fair amount of girls and there was also a coaching change. DoC dropped this team to take on a younger team. new girls, new coach, wouldnt doubt the U13s beating the U14s. In reality they are both not that good.

12:33 - U13 Crush beat U14 Crush in their own tournament last weekend!

Anonymous said...

Actually have daughters in both u13 and u14. Top 5 u13 have no chance against top 5 u14s. After that top u13's can beat 6-15. I know it hurts a lot of parent egos but it is true.

Anonymous said...

I think you misread what the person wrote. They said someone belongs on a weaker U13 teamrather than one of the stronger U13's. I don't think they said that the U13's are all weaker. Being a little hypersensitive. Go back to your own forum.

This same weak nj crush team that lost to u13 team beat brick fury in same tourney. Brick did not make it through but the u13 nj crush went through and so did crush u14. So much for u13s being weak.

OMG, serious? you can host your own tournament accept 1 decent team in the age group (Brick), others are straight up town teams (RYSA, Vernon, Sportfriends), still lost to a younger U13 team from your own club (tell the U13 is was a friendly) and wait for it....it actually carries GS points. U14 crush only lists 10 on the roster so who knows how many "guests" they had for the scrimmagefest...I mean tournament. Yikes, a whole new way of point grabbing. Brick rematch at Stars should be interesting.

Yeah, just ten on the roster.

Funny stuff.

Anonymous said...

"Typically" up to u15 the better teams are made up of mostly older girls in the age group aug-jan for club play; but for national play it goes by birth year. Then these girls aug-dec become the youngest which makes it more difficult to standout. For many its a big adjustment from being a standout to fighting to make the team due to physical development.

Suggestion: Plan to have your future kids on jan 1-5 to give them the best advantage in club, national & hs.

Always exceptions to the rule

Anonymous said...

Its funny how most of the posts on this site bash teams that are doing well. It would be nice to see someone grow a set and post their name and what team their girl plays for after a post. As for Got Soccer points I realy hope people realize what a joke they are. I know that some people on here think that their daughter is going to play on the National Team good luck I would love to see some NJ girls make it. Its almost that if your team is on here getting bashed be proud that means people are jealous. Good Luck to all the NJ teams in the fall.

By u15 most of the girls have already physically matured. I have seen top 10 u15 teams beat top10 u16 teams on a regular basis. By 15, the better girls will be the better girls no matter u15 or u16.

where you are at the birth month will matter marginally.

Anonymous said...



You are all a little crazy, these players are 13 and 14 years old. Why would anyone put a player down.

Do you know how hard it is to play at the higher levels, no. You need god given talent, desire, strong technical skills and a lot of luck to get noticed and then you have to perform each and everyday. So all of you that think players will get college scholarships or play for regional or national teams, the chances are very slim. Of course I'm not saying lose the dream, just being realistic.

Good luck to the all of the teams playing at Spirit, STA and Marlboro tourneys over the weekend. Hope you all play well and enjoy the experience.

Anonymous said...

Not 1 ECNL team came in 1st in their group but they did play top teams. I think the argument is top teams non-ECNL are just as good or better at the moment but the allure of the ECNL might be enough to eventually draw better players away from these other top teams. At the root of it whatever happens the players they pick up the ECNL had nothing to do with their development so to say the better training & coaching is there doesn't make sense. You're paying for the prestige of the league made up of Clubs who benefit from the work of others.

Only 1 win for NJ teams in top flight @ Spirit, not good representation on how deep NJ is with talented teams. Sounds like a lot impacted their results this weekend. SJEB loses best player to Penn Fusion, FC Copa loses striker to Match Fit, Brick gets red card in 5 mins of a game deciding who goes to the semis & IGFA still cannot win a meaningful game against top teams. Better showing by other States in the early part of the Fall season.

Brick had a issue in the Rider Tournament, some say they should have received a red card in that tournament. Lots of speculation going on here. We will have to wait and see what develops in the coming season.
Interesting to watch.

WC played MF U13 pre ECNL not the U14 team today.

Very random posts? Brick should have received a red card in a game a couple of months ago & World Class beats a U-13 team, what do these posts have to do with anything? Maybe the U-13 team is real good or maybe World Class is not that strong? Maybe there was a game that Brick could have received a red card as in any game that's possible. Can we discuss real things not just bringing up random things to I guess start trouble? NJ needs to bounce back from a disappointing Spirit tournament. Some teams that finally get close to the top my fall off fast & some NJ team continue to drop. I don't need to mention teams by name just observations without bashing individuals.

I think a lit of the results should have been expected with the mass movement of players over the summer. For a lot of these teams, this was their first game with adjusted lineups. Anticipation and timing aren't there.
What is discouraging for most of these teams is there wasn't improvement between games - they finished even worse. Maybe consolations were different positions again, but was bad for most efforts.

Spirit results NJ teams didn't do well, PA State Champs lost both games in group & no ECNL team won their group so what does that mean? It means all top teams are close so it's a call here or a call there, who capitalizes on mistakes & who showed up to play that day. Don't make too much of a preseason tourney as season is just starting. More disappointing are the 2nd tier teams from NJ as they weren't playing top teams & still did poorly.

Pre season tourny. We have all been practicing, no more excuses.

Why do people keep saying no ECNL team won their group? Penn Fusion did!!!

There is PDA and then everybody else. This team is very far ahead now.

They are more a national team then a local team.

There was parity at u12 and even in the beginnings of u13. But now it just not close anymore.

This happen quite frequently with these PDA teams.

U14 teens are growing up some have other interest other then soccer,maybe a concert,maybe a boyfriend.So if they don't perform to your liking just remember they are teens and have a right of passage to be themselves. Lets hope they learn good lessons in life.
And most of all,pray,and pray hard they pay little attention to this blog.

Penn fusion lost to HBC in the final 3-1. Stop being a spaz.

Bottom line, NJ underperformed as expected.

The way they all talk smack on this blog, you would expect that they should be head and shoulders above everyone else, and they're not.

Some of the better players(parents) will start see that the divide in widening between the ECNL teams and everyone else , just because of the collection of athletes(skill players) that these teams are acquiring and starting with the winter of this year, more will move.

They will first try PDA, Then, Match fit.

Unfortunately , like others before them, they will find out that they waited too long and their daughter, while being a good player, is just not that much better than a girl that already has a spot on one of these teams.

This happens every @ u14 age cycle.

No gap for the ECNL teams that showed up @ spirit this weekend and the playing field was even for all sides. Surely in time players may blossom or get used to playing a system, some players and teams will be better. With the MD strikers and HBC playing in our EDP,there will be good rematch opportunities to measure progress.
Again PDA seems to be the single entity in the area in this age group, that has separated from the pack.
.MF still has to prove itself. with 25 rostered players, would think they have a chance to move to that elite level, if there is any value n their selection process.
Maybe MF gain has been other's losses in terms of talent.

MF gain? Arent they struggling?

Did a PDA parent wake up

"waited too long and their daughter, while being a good player, is just not that much better than a girl that already has a spot on one of these teams."

I believe this is the same as saying:

“players on ECNL are no better than good player on a non ECNL team?”


Anonymous said...

1:50 I'm not 10:29 but there is one major difference you didn't mention in your analysis. The players on ECNL clubs are not looking to move unless they lose a spot, the players on the outside are trying to get in. That speaks volumes.

Your turn

Hearing some things about Copa. New Coach? Any confirmation of that?

Anonymous said...

Non ECNL player that shows AS GOOD as what the ECNL team already has will be taken -

as coaches are always intrigued by what can BECOME of such a player under their tutelage

So you have it backwards, current ECNL guy. The current player will often need to show BETTER than the shiny new Penelope.

I also must say it's a tough psychological path for your child, always worrying about who is next down the pike.

Anonymous said...

@4:34 not the above guy, but I think you thinking is flawed. if a non ecnl player is just as good as a current ecnl player, why would the coach take an equal, after the coach had invested a season or two in that player. A new player would have to bump somone in the top third to take a spot. you think the coach will say I will take this girl who would be #16 on the team and bump current girl #18. i dont think so. Skill aside, there are more tactical things that are worked on that the coach would have to bring the new player up to speed on things. Coach has more things invested. you think they will take someone similar, just because they are shiney and new? Good luck joining an existing team.

Would NEVER take an equal.......NEVER

Anonymous said...

If they believe their current player has maxed out and an equal player is a little rough, but they believe they can polish them up into a net improvement they will make the switch. Especially if doing so weakens an opponent.

Anonymous said...


It depends where that equal falls in the mix. So, the new play could be equal to one of the starting 11, do you take her? Absolutely. If you want to compete at the highest levels you will need a deep run of players, for training and potential injuries that will occur during the season. You want players to have to compete at training to play in games. If you want to play in college, each and every day you will be in a competition for playing time.

As for injuries, so it this weekend at spirit, already a lot of top teams had a lot on injuries. Watched some very good teams compete and play some very inspiring soccer.

As for FC Copa, did hear some rumors that the coach has been suspended for playing players that were not carded or carded properly. But really who cares.

Was surprised that many NJ teams did perform as well as usual, there should be no excuses. They just were outplayed this weekend. It happens. They may play better next game or tournament. Don't harp on one game or weekend tourney.

Didn't have the chance to watch HBC, but did watch Penn Fusion (looked the best I saw all weekend). FC Virigina (looked good as well but didn't get results). Brick didn't look their normal, just a bad weekend for them. FC Copa looked average at best.

Freehold looked a lesser team than in past but only saw about 15 minutes of a game.

move on, a lot of soccer to be played over the next 4 months!

My daughter plays in new
NJ. she played in spirit this past weekend. They outplayed there opponent in two of there games but the score doesn't show that. Great tournament, weather sucked, fields were nice and big, no problems with any teams parents or coaches,would definitely go back next year.

Can someone let the administrator of this blog know that the u13G forum has been locked since Saturday, lots of useless comments are waiting to be posted.

Have you ever coached? Do you really think coaches number their players?

Old Bridge did well taking advantage of placement in a weak bracket and then got whipped bad when they faced a real opponent.

Have to love brick coach bragging about a 3-0 win then nothing after a 3-0 lose and a another lose on Sunday .
Long way to go for nj soccer at u14

Anonymous said...

Love the trolls on here. Nothing better to do at midnight but to throw a random coach bragging about a win. Where is that as I don't see that post? I see the score listed on here which anybody can look up & post. This site had gotten so ridiculous with trying to start trouble or putting teams down. People get enjoyment from seeing teams not do well. NJ had teams in top flight & but didn't put a team in the semis where last year they had 2 so what does that mean the teams are not good or that other teams had a better weekend? Copa & SJEB lost their best players, Brick played down a player & IGFA tied their games. People need to get a life on here. NJ teams will bounce back but you people still will have no life.

Lesson 2:
Lose = action of not winning
Loss = noun describing not winning.

When you lose a game you have a loss.

Anonymous said...

Nobody said these were educated people on here & clearly by what is important to them during the day or the middle of the night you can see they don't have a lot going on in their own lives that they are so concerned with what other people & teams are doing. Take it as a compliment when they randomly bring up your team because clearly you are very important to them & get them through their miserable lives. My advice find a hobby like reading a book.

You're a completely clueless jackass that needs to drink some draino with your next cup of coffee. Anyone that thinks they can identify a specific post made by a specific person is downright stupid. It was no doubt a player or a parent that posted the score, which is what these forums are actually for. I would have posted it as well. And as far as not posting any other results, were they obligated to? You're an idiot.

Is Draino still sold?

Hold on a second. FC Copa coach was suspended? For playing players not carded or improperly carded? What's going on here? Was he at the tournament this weekend? If not, maybe there's some truth to it.

Anonymous said...

No coach would be suspended for making a mistake. No player would be able to play without the card.

Anonymous said...

Love all these rumors about people, in the real world you would be subject to slander but here you get to hide line a coward under anonymous. Why people feel the need to talk about people they probably don't even know is beyond me. Posting scores is what this blog is for as I have posted before not just our teams scores but others when people come on & say does anyone know the scores? I saw the score posted with no comment what so ever so not sure why it would be bragging just because teams that did not win didn't put their score up there? We all can look up tournament scores online so sounds just like someone who is jealous & wants to start trouble.

A view from the outside-
I do not live in Nj nor would I ever. There is a stereo type that comes with the territory. This blog solidifies it way to easily. The over all per capita morality in our country would increase dramatically if the entire state fell in the ocean with out warning. You chase points and think that makes you good. Even if your winning percentage is below 50%. You are why so many dismiss GS. This is why you often lose. Not because you played bad. Not because you missed players. But because you play 15-20 tournaments and only win 50-60% of the time. You eventually get a bunch of points. When you lose it's because you only win 50-60% of your games and are playing to your potential.

I think some of these teams over train as well.

Have heard that about Brick and IGFA, not sure if accurate.
