Ummm, apparently in your own little world, no ones cares or is talking about Brick. BUT, if you read above your conversation, you'll see plenty of concerned players, coaches, and parents are. Perhaps it's you that's a tad slow. Win percentages? Why do you think they don't go by that? Think hard. It's called strength of schedule. If team A plays garbage teams and beats them all but team B plays all top 10 teams consistently and goes .500, team B will always be higher ranked. Two prime examples are Real Galaxy, and Pt. Pleasant. Look at their win %. Pt. Pleasant is 17-7, but they hide and play absolutely no one in the top 10-20, so they will never move up. Win percentage is meaningless, it's all about who you play as well as who you beat.
Oh yeah, the above posts are right. The Wildcat/Brick "agreement" is in violation of GotSoccer protocol. The team should be moved back to their original ranking of 18 or so.

12:05 - you just lumped together Pt Pleasant with Real Galaxy? You do realize Real Galaxy tied for first in the first division EDP (finished second on tie breaker). Were you drinking when you posted that?

Anonymous said...

Was simply a post on why the best win % is not a valid stat to automatically make you the highest ranked team. That's all. Looks like those are the two highest Win %.

They are not the two highest win percentage in the ranking

Anonymous said...

Yeah, IGFA is deservedly ranked #1 and PDA doesn't count for obvious reasons. Those are the two best examples, especially Pt. Pleasant.

Anonymous said...

Bridgewater and Old Bridge are two more good examples. Who have they played/beaten?? Absolutely no one of consequence.

Anonymous said...

Scheduling and opponents are important factors but difficult to assess if your not from the immediate area. There are teams out there that do chase point in Mickey mouse tournaments accumulate the points but their goal differential, winning percentage and verses quality opponents are dismal.

Pt Pleasant might be good example but not Real. Real is right about where they should be. The only two teams that could be possibly ranked ahead of them are Splash and MatchFit.

If I were you, I would focus more on the top 20 teams with a win % in the 30's. How can you be considered a top team when you can't win at least half of your games - no matter who you are playing?

7:24 is absolutely right. All suspect.

Not same person just similar point. When it is all said and done its youth soccer are there are many ways to measure to progress. The point that should be made moving into u15 is simple, assess your situation and goals but don't mislead parents or players as to playing in elite tournaments or player ability because children need the truth not the koolaid that supports the machine which lines the pockets of elitist individuals, altruistic coaches/trainers. As parents we need to be realistic gotsoccer points, false championships, and rankings don't tell the whole story.

Old Bridge is not a false championship. It is not a championship at all. They are the Kings of the rec league, that's it. They know it, we know it, the only person that does not is grandma and grandpa.

Using your logic the USWNT are not real champions because the World Cup only counts for men's teams.

and

Barcelona's Champions League victory is a false championship because your NJ Club Super Group Cup is the only real "Cup"

Every team can be good at their level. This blog is not for the top 5 teams, it is for all teams.

Now lets talk 4-4-2 vs 4-3-3 vs 4-2-3-1

That was not using my logic AT ALL. You have serious comprehension issues. My point is simple, have ONE state cup and let everyone compete. To have two only waters it down. No one cares about the NIT.

GotSoccer Policy:

"Question: My team has moved to a new club & is playing under a different team name. Can we keep the points from our previous events?


Answer: The new team must meet the following requirements:

•Their current roster has at least 50% of the players from the team in question (Brick)
•The players from the team that has split up make up at least 50% of their current roster (Brick)

OR

•Their current roster has at least 60% of the (Brick) players.

While we realize the vital role that a club plays in their teams accomplishments, the rankings points & history are awarded to the players who were on the field for those events. If a team retains the required 50-60% of players, then they are eligible for the rankings points & history."


The cheating NEW Wildcat/Brick team meets NONE of these requirements or even comes close. GotSoccer MUST revert this team back to it's previous #18 status in points by its own rules. There's no gray area, it's in black and white. This will continue to be posted daily until the right thing is done.

Gotsoccer does not have to report to NJYS nor do they have to change or alter anything based on your opinion. If you are correct and they care to acknowledge such than you may get a change. It wont matter for you anyway as your daughter will no longer be playing on a top 50 team.

Anonymous said...


The Brick Wildcats will only have the advantage of those points for a short period of time. That level will allow them to gain access to higher levels in tournaments, where they will not be able to compete. The said fact is that they will take the slot of a more deserving team.

The USWNT played a 4-4-2 up until the Germany game and were largely unspectacular and in some cases... Quite rigid and predictable.

They changed to 4-2-3-1 for the Germany game with Carli Lloyd in the #10 role behind the forward and were fantastic. They kept this same system for the final.

Lloyd in attacking midfield, Morgan up top, Rapinoe and Heath on the wings. Holiday and Brian in defensive center mid.

Some of you really need to watch the game...

I'm late to the game. Can someone explain the WC controversy to me? I see there are now 2 u15 teams and 2 u14 teams. No more Lady Knights. Looks like girls are dual rostered.

Anonymous said...

Very late to game. Brick team folded and players went to different teams. 4 Brick players, inclusive of coach's daughter, joined WC. That's when they decided to take advantage of loophole. They "transferred" entire WC roster onto Brick team and are playing as Brick for summer. In fall, will "transfer" roster back to WC. That way they get to transfer all of the GotSoccer points earned by the actual Brick team to the WC team, thereby vaulting their team from #18 to #3 in state as ranked by GotSoccer. Of course, the new Brick team is discovering that the new ranking puts them up against better teams and they have already started to lose against these legitimate teams. So may not keep that ranking for long. It's a shame because WC was getting better on its own but taking shortcuts has a way of catching up.

As a coach part of the role is teaching sportsmanship, fairness & respect for the game & the league , not sure if was done here.

The bigger move here would be correcting what was done, lets see what happens and the true character of these coaches/clubs in doing the right thing.

Sore losers? By that I assume you mean, coaches/managers that do things the right way and not try to steal points that do not in any way, shape, or form belong to them? You show your ignorance and gigantic ego there coach. And I use the term coach loosely.
You will fail in the end.

U.S. club national cup is the national finals for winners of either their state US club state cup, or their U.S. Club regional tournament. In the case of NJ, GFA won both this year.

If you do qualify you do not need to attend. I guess many clubs decided not to go this year. Was much tougher competition last year when Copa were there.

surprised by National Cup participants. Last year had more divergent regional teams which were very competitive. Teams Included VaRush, teams from Indiana, Illinois and even Hawaii. We thought Hawaii would be a joke but came away impressed by their level of play. Clearly a lot of teams chose not to participate. IGFA should be the favorite but on any given day.... Good luck to all participants. Enjoy the experience. We did and my daughter has some nice memories!

Last year people ( the usual jealous haters) would say the same about the team's just to be prove wrong. You never know. We can say the same for any competition. IGFA won state cup and regional beating the best we have in our state, no matter what you say that is a fact like it or not. Now let them go out there and represent , no need to have negative comments, when a team from NJ goes out there and play vs other state's team we need to support them. Good luck and go NJ!

Not saying I'm not supporting our nj team just surprised by the lack of competition at a national event. When has Rhode Island ever produced a competing team and the Minnesota team was like in the 8th bracket of jeff cup. A lot of $$$ to pay so it's a shame that you couldn't at least play the best competition. Last years field did look much stringer. Wonder why all these teams opted out this year.

Anonymous said...

I think what people fail to understand is that IGFA has reached the heights they have through a level of work and dedication that most teams are unwilling to approach. I would imagine that they don't care who they play. They just want to play. I applaud the players, parents, and trainers for that team because they look at this as another opportunity to get better, and I'm sure they would welcome the chance to play the best teams in the country.
The extent to which they play is not for everyone, nor is it for anyone to criticize what they do with their time and money. It will pay off for all of them sooner rather than later.
I have seen this team play very recently and was very impressed and no, I am not an IGFA parent. Good luck in Indiana and have a great experience.

@8:00, I was there as well, different bracket, but there. I watched some of copa, they had a tough time to be honest, I think the Red Bull team is good and new? Plus many teams were not represented like gfa. NJ elite good point, but I believe they are rebuilding. It was a good test of endurance, what kind of shape are these girls in to play in this heat, 2 matches per day. I tend to think the better in shape girls were the winners on Sunday. Referees were abysmal, but I am so used to seeing bad refs. How they can miss clear off sides, with players in off side positions is beyond me, however I saw it at least 2-3 times and one cost us a goal in pivotal match. If a ref misses an off sides it is critical mistake and can cost a goal. One ref was sweating, lazy, wiping his face, not sure but they also needed breaks and I believe this was part of the issue with the refs.

I had the opportunity to chat with one of the Redbull parents during the final vs. Copa. The team is only together for the summer and are a team of U12, U13 and U14 players. IMO - Technically the best team this weekend. Due to the U12/13s they were obviously smaller than any other team, but didn't lack speed. Technical play always trumps size.

Any players sitting out Fall still looking to play for a team?

Anonymous said...

Most teams in the fall have their kids play high school, start practicing in late October and then do some showcase tournaments and a few league games. Teams that have players playing in high school should absolutely not play in September and October as it is physically to much for the kids and significantly increases their chance of injury. They need a day off to rest and catch up with school work.

GotSoccer Policy:

"Question: My team has moved to a new club & is playing under a different team name. Can we keep the points from our previous events?


Answer: The new team must meet the following requirements:

•Their current roster has at least 50% of the players from the team in question (Brick)
•The players from the team that has split up make up at least 50% of their current roster (Brick)

OR

•Their current roster has at least 60% of the (Brick) players.

While we realize the vital role that a club plays in their teams accomplishments, the rankings points & history are awarded to the players who were on the field for those events. If a team retains the required 50-60% of players, then they are eligible for the rankings points & history."


The cheating NEW Wildcat/Brick team meets NONE of these requirements or even comes close. GotSoccer MUST revert this team back to it's previous #18 status in points by its own rules. There's no gray area, it's in black and white. This will continue to be posted until the right thing is done.

Still not sure why people are so worried about Got Soccer points? Even if the Brick teams win they will receive no points because it is such a low level tournament with low level teams & Brick have too many points to deduct which will be much higher then the flight values like in the other 2 tournaments they signed up for as Wildcats. People should really spend your Summer doing more productive things because you sound like a fool talking about things you clearly don't know & a stalker.

GFA starts Indiana off with a dominating 3-0 victory. Come Monday we wil be national champions.

This blog was always kinda entertaining especially back in the day when people would distribute the snide comments, abuse and ridicule amongst all team...Jackson, brick, Old Bridge, NJ Crush, the other crush, Stallions, new kids on the block GFA of course PDA, barons...plenty of comments to go around...LOL. You would come back in a few hours and refresh the feed and there would be 30 new posts.

Parents would get a taste of success from their little Mia and couldnt wait to boast and wave their fingers and say we are better than you...blah, blah blah.
Now its just GFA, Brick and Wildcats..everybody has either just moved on or just plain dont give a crap anymore.
Hey GFA...nobody gives a crap anymore. GFA...your great! Is that what you wanted to hear. I dont care if its a troll or not, where there's smoke theres fire. Im sure theres someone from that team on here.
Just STOP!!!...which I am sure will only egg them on but whatever, cuz I'm done.

@12:33, I hear you. But lets talk a little bit about gfa once more for me and my daughter. how does a small club with two teams do this? is it the 5 night a week training, is it the coaching, is it the trainers? I am baffled how they keep winning, and now on the way to being the best in the country? I think my daughters team, and parents/coaches/girls in general can learn a lot from gfa. They are a new club, 3 years old maybe? The only thing they do different is the above. So if we want our kids to be the best, play with the best and win national titles that must be what it takes. Do not think because you are on an academy team with an A licensed coach who trains 3 days per week is enough, and you pay $5k per year. the formula seems to be hard work, like 99% of things in life, makes you a winner, whether that is at work, in sports, even in a marriage, hard work wins. Congrats to GFA, I wish my daughter was with that group in Indiana and winning for NJ.

Wow, all that money to play at NJCSA. Then you are hit up with some made up summer fee. Watch the accounting with that team, that coach has already taken his family to florida since you all paid an upfront fee for next spring season. What a joke......And he is already taking photos of the players.....how long before he does something really stupid? If I were a leader at NJCSA I would check the finances already. And how many players a year younger are playing on that team?///

Already done, hopefully by a lot of people. Cheaters shouldn't be allowed to cheat just because it may or may not effect things down the road. Some of you people are what's wrong with the world in general.

Just plain ignorance. Rules are in place for a reason. Some coaches, parents, and players actually care about what's right.

1:10 you night have Good points there , why you didnt contacted them yet and go to a training session. Heard is aways open to new players, and let us know. Either way the other comments are just trolls and if you are bored with the blog do not blame the teams or the firs but all the haters out there that keep attacking different teams out of jealousy or other issues.

5 days a week training for U15G is too much. It's too much at the HS level, and it's too much at the club level.

If you weight train, you never train the same body part(s) 5 days straight. There must be recovery.

Go take a lesson in tactical periodization, and how training must account for rest / recovery.

May be great now, but when little Mia ends up with a torn ACL, you'll know why - overuse injuries suck.

GFA did it like every other good team, they stole players from other teams like TSF and Brick. They were terrible 2 years ago, and amazingly the roster is now different. Good for them. And they already are #1 in the country according to Gotsoccer.

Let's not talk about these little stuff. What about NJ ELITE ? I heard they are really focusing on development and all girls love it there. I am looking for a team for my daughter and heard such great things about them. Their level grew so much in the past year

Yes there are U13's playing up at NJCSA U14 team because they have lost players, did not attract enough at recent tryouts and cannot field a viable u14 team at present.

Yes the Wall coach knows all about NJCSA and he loves to give updates. Thanks.

Anonymous said...

No one stole players. Players left because they want to be challenged. And to say they were no good fwo years ago is probably true but over time and effort the dynamics changed. If you want your daughter to tryout and checkout how success is nurtured stop by you and your daughter might learn something.

Anonymous said...

Why do parents try to sink a ship when they leave? The bottom line is your upset about your MIA NOT PLAYING enough minutes. Leave and keep it moving but to come on here and bash your former team is text book parental altruism. You tell convoluted stories about why you left and none of it is true. Leave us alone and enjoy your new team.

Because they're cheaters! They took the wildcat roster, moved it to the vacant/folded Brick roster (with only 4 remaining girls) and stole their points. Way to go coache(s), way to circumvent the system and teach your kids how to cheat and steal.

GFA US Club National Champions. Congratulations. Well deserved. Best in NJ and now one of the best in the nation.

Anonymous said...

Congrats to GFA but...
Here's a comparison between ECNL and the rest, that I would apply to our age as well. I have an older daughter so I know both teams well.
PDA arsenal just won the ECNL National title for U17.
NJ Stallions dynamite have won the NPL Nationals, the Region 1 championships and set to compete in the USYS Nationals.

On the ECNL side PDA had to go through Santa Rosa, Eclipse and Slammers.
Stallions had to go through Space City FC, PWSI G97, Oakwood SC, and Massapequa SC Crush in the Finals...yes Massapequa,

I know you can only play in who is in front of you, but you cant say ECNL doesnt play at the highest level.

Dynamite and PDA used to play each other at tournaments like jeff cup or delco or Newws and it would go both ways. Less as the girls got older, not because one is ducking the other, that's just they way leagues are scheduled and how clubs choose to compete. I can't say for sure for stallions but i do know that every girl on PDA has verbally committed to schools already.
Look at the top tourneys that NPL plays in and the ECNL showcases. Look at the "college coaches attending"...if that is what you are ultimately playing for, you can not deny that ECNL gives you more exposure to D1 schools than any other league. Players in other leagues also need to boast their resumes with ODP status, and team ranking based on GOTSOCCER points.

Not necessarily needed on ECNL side.

Competition and exposure...isnt that why the girls play at this level?

Glad you love ECNL but......

Congrats to GFA!

Brick guy who just left to go to MF good luck to you and your daughter ... Please don't align yourself with slick your better than that ... Always remember wherever you go if your on a good team there will be expenses and commitments ... If the commitment level from a boy or girl not there it's very tough ... Socially boys and girls want to hang out more with friends want a social life if your missing practice not traveling with the team it's probably time to go ... Please don't hate on the club that she left she didn't have to leave .. Good luck to you

It is good to see NJ Teams showing well and being successful in national tournaments!

WE SHOULD ALL BE PROUD OF THEIR SUCCESS!!! It speaks volumes to the talent in this state, especially within this age group. Personally, I don't care for most of the rhetoric that exists on this site. But I do enjoy hearing about the successes of all NJ teams and Region 1 teams.

I hope that all players get to the level they seek and enjoy the game for their lifetime, as a player, coach, parent, etc.......

For all of you parents out there, just sit back and enjoy the games and the success your daughter is experiencing.....It flies by and if you don't enjoy it - you will regret that later. Most parents, including myself thinks our daughter is better than she really is, but that's ok I'm her parent. But I would come on hear and bash any team or player, that is just rude and obnoxious.. Good luck to all the players!!!!!!

Can any SJEB parents shed any light on why you have declined to go to NPL Nationals two years in a row?

Last year you won the NPL and Copa went for being finalists as you declined the spot, this year the same thing but Stallions went as you declined the spot.

What is the point of playing NPL if you aren't going to attend Nationals if successful? Surely that's what all NPL teams/clubs are aiming for?

Anonymous said...

Stallions didn't go because SJEB declined the spot. SJEB opted out of the playoffs entirely. Don't assume that Copa or Stallions could not have beat them in the playoffs.

Anonymous said...

So SJEB wants to be the best in state but when they have a chance to go to the NPL nationals 2 years in a row they walk away from it. That's crazy. Why even bother being on that team when they avoid great events and exposure.

Anonymous said...

8:27 - nobody said anything like that. We simply asked why you opted out both years?

Anonymous said...

SJEB didn't go because they aren't traveling to Indiana to play lousy teams unlike GFA who did. Let's not sugar coat everything.

Anonymous said...

Most of you people are real idiots!! GFA qualified to go and went. The competition was extremely good. Unfortunately they don't get to pick who they play. They went there and played awesome and won.. Anybody who has anything negative to say is just jealous that they weren't part of it and is an idiot. Congratulations to GFA, way to represent NJ. For some of you jealous/idiot parents, no matter what GFA does, who they play, who they beat, where they play will ever convince you that they really are a great team so why don't you just keep your mouth shut!!

Anonymous said...

So now SJEB thinks the winners of all the NPL leagues from around the country are lousy. Just so everyone is clear the NPL tourney that Sjeb passes on every year is different than the U.S. Club national cup. Many more teams attend NPL and quality is better than national cup.

Won Jeff cup ( beating penn fusion ECNL team ) but is not good
Won state cup ( beating the great , based on the blog, sjeb ) but is not good
NEWSS didn't make it to the final for 1 goal differential ( stallions managed to lose 6-0 vs world class) after beating stallions and tie world class ECNL team. But is not good
Won Fc delco but is not good
Won EDP league ( hbc , conceal etc) but is not good
Won regional beating in the final pda ECNL team but is not good
Won national cup but is not good
Here in this blog I keep reading how barons are great how Nj elite is growing how COPA is fantastic and all ECNL blah blah.
My daughter plays for New York sc and we played them yesterday. I got all these Infos as I do all the time when my daughters plays a team as I like statistics and I cannot u derstand so much negativity. We had a great game yesterday and IGFA was the better team even if we managed to hold and arrive at PK but the team is strong with lots of talent and great plays. I was impressed and proud of my daughter for the game. We lost but it was a great experience for all teams. Why we cannot use sportsmanship and give credit to teams that do well?

Anonymous said...

HAHA...NYSC parent, sure. that's a whole lot of info you got there on GFA.
Down to why they didnt make finals in NEWSS and who they beat in regionals. As for the game I believe you were there but you claim to be on the wrong side.
This is why there is negativity towards your club.
Nice try slick.

I do not u derstand negativity again, and do not care if you do not believe what I said. It is not important to me. I collect as much as information I want because I like it for myself . Tell me your daughter team and I will know probably more than you. Again it is ok , fool of me to try to add some positive thoughts into youth soccer. We should keep the negativity on , after all this is what our 14 years old girls needed right?

Blah blah blah

1. ECNL
2. NPL
3. EDP

That is the order no if and or buts. Are there teams within each league that are good and bad yes. Their is no doubt that ECNL is the place to be for showcasing players as they get older. Denying that is foolish. There is no doubt that there are more college coaches at THE ECNL level.

ECNL

That's the order plain and simple. It's a filtration. Only a matter of time before the elite players join ECNL. Those players currently on EDP carrying the wait of the club will eventually make a move its inevitable. Nothing personal it's just the way it works. Regardless of the wins, championships, winning percentage. Mostly all college coaches flock to watch ECNL games becuase there is a broader range of quality players to look at and evaluate.

A good player that want to play in college , will play. If they get the proper info from the Clubs they are with and if they talk to college coaches they will find this out. Yes ECNL events attract a lot of coaches but any player can contact coaches, any player can attend a college camp and any player can be seen if they want to be seen. Doesnt matter if they play Edp, npl or ecnl. You all know what you have experienced thats all but thats not the only option. Everyone needs to do real homework on their own , this blog is a soap opera not a place for real info.
