Copa is an high level team and will be growing into probably number one in the state and stay there for a long while. Freehold and NJX are just town clubs that mean nothing in the State.

only Barons and PDA can compete with Copa in the next year.All the others are just passing by:
Brick/freehold/toms river/Igfa /crush/sta etc..bye bye
have fun fighting for a little spotlight.

now talk about something else and leave Copa alone . we are working hard and you should show some respect.

1:38 not a Copa parent... can we all just be honest about who we are and where we are from?

NO top teams in NJ. We are good, but nowhere near the likes of Bethesda, Dallas, Tophat...

I find it very disturbing that we are talking about managers & coaches as I we know them. Unless you have spent significant time with them you don't know them so you re forming options off I what? Most of these statements te so ridiculous that I'm sure these people would lnt even respond. PDA, Copa, STA, Force, Brick, NJX, Wildcats & Jackson have all had their teams coache mentioned yet clearly no one has had their daughter play do all these teams so how can we say this one is this & that one I that? People let's get a grip & stop bashing people & teams. I don't think there is anything wrong with not thinking a team is wry good or like their style of play but the problem is then someone takes it personal them gets ugly on here. We should have debates not hatred spewed on here. Sorry maybe because I'm most likely a lot older then most on here I have different perspective but think about it.

Just as an outsider looking in, about the last Copa comment. My daughters team has played against Copa and played against Brick several times. At this point in time, Brick would pick Copa apart. It's not bashing, just the way it would be, at least right now.

I find it hard to believe that anyone could be as arrogant as that supposed Copa parent post claiming only PDA and SJEB can compete. Must be someone just trying to get everybody bashing them.

I think when people talk "top" teams here, they are speaking about teams in NJ and/or this region specifically. Otherwise, you'd be right.

read the post of 1:40 see? they consider only outside teams. not Nj teams. that is arrogant

In response to 2:06pm :

Games played in the last 3 weeks :

SJEB 2-1 Copa
SJEB 2-2 Brick
Brick 0-0 NYSC
Copa 0-1 NYSC
Brick 3-2 Real
Copa 1-0 Real

I'm pretty sure Brick v Copa would also be a close game.

Anyone can beat anyone or tie anyone on any given day.

Let's just hope US can beat or tie Germany on Thursday as the given day.

You conveniently left out how you gave up 4 goals against Freehold. I don't think Brick has ever given up more than 3 goals to anyone...ever. If they did, it was probably PDA or someone like that. And no one said if would be a 5-0 blow out. Copa is a little better than NJX.

Anonymous said...

freehold is an ok team , as a parent i admit that. Copa lost with freehold. that makes copa even worst than us.
we played the EDP first division south this season and every game was difficult for us. I guarantee Copa would not win one game in that division (maybe Real, but maybe)

all the other teams are better than Copa.

my opinion

Anonymous said...

I have watched and played most of these teams from Brick, Force, United, Copa, Toms River, SJEB, PDA and many more teams. All these teams are close. Some have more points because they play more tournaments. Unless you are getting blown out then you belong.

Anonymous said...

2:52 - everyone has an off day. Freehold conveniently left out that Copa starting defender didn't play second half with a head injury (when freehold scored 3 goals) and Copa starting goalie was also injured first half and didn't play second half.

Any given day.

Anonymous said...

regarding the 2:59 post. Which Freehold parent is the dumbest on the team? That is who wrote that garbage.

Anonymous said...



So it looks like Brick underperformed again! Looks like they took the wrong 4 to six players from NJ Force.

Copa had 1 win 2 losses over the weekend. don't make excuses, they are 13 year olds. Some days will be better than others.

SJEB proved to be the better team this weekend in the top group. Did there best player play?

NJX had a rough weekend. Doesn't mean that they are a bad team.

Freehold did what Freehold normally does, get decent results. They compete but doesn't make them a great team.

They are all decent teams some better than others.

Just curious. Didn't Real beat Freehold in a cup game (Twice)? One in which you didn't sniff a goal, then you were fortunate with a 1-1 tie in the last minute of the EDP game in which Real played a man down for the last 15 minutes?

Don't go crazy with your results this weekend. It was good for your team to get a few wins but you do realize you beat a Real team that had their two strikers on the bench with injuries.

BTW, Copa is a better team than you. We've played both of you multiple times and they are better. Maybe not Sunday, but over the long haul, they are more skilled. There's nothing wrong with that either, it is what it is.

Why is it so hard for you people to realize there are 3 "TOP" teams in the state right now. Splash, SJEB and Brick. Maybe that will change with all the player movement for the the fall but right now, those are the only three who have done it year in and year out. I can go on and on about how we (Real) lost close game after close game and had horrible ties and list the excuses of own goals, bad refs, whatever. At the end of the day that stuff happens to everyone but the "TOP" teams persevere. Is it really that much of a blow to your ego that your daughter doesn't play on a top team (yet)? I'm sure with the players you picked up, you'll be better and more competitive, as will quite a few teams. With American's and Force crush folding, that's over 30 girls who will go to other teams.

It's easy to identify the teams (if you're being honest with yourself):

TOP teams:
Splash
SJEB
Brick

Very good teams:
Copa
Freehold
IGFA
TRIC
Real

Solid respectable teams:
Holmdel
Madrid
NJ Rush
Wildcats
Stronghold

I think any of those teams can beat anyone else in the state on any given day. The question is, can they do it consistently? That's when you'll be considered a "TOP" team.

Just relax and enjoy some good summer soccer.

Anonymous said...

i wouldn't put freehold in the very good team category. they are as good as NJX or wildcats. i agree with others, even if Real is in between, not yet as good as some of the teams you mentioned.

Anonymous said...

I'd say Freehold is very good. You can say we (Real) are in between, I'm ok with that too. Gotta prove it consistently to be considered. We understand that!

no way you can put Brick in top 3 after this weekend?talked all week and only one win against 11 players...very poor weekend...

Anonymous said...

4:29

The point is you don't become a top team or a second tier after one weekend of games. If they continue to play at that level for an extended period of time, then they will drop. Just like nobody will put Freehold (or any team) in the top tier for one good weekend.

BTW, to all the Feehold people that are saying Brick and Copa aren't any good, if that's the case, name one "good" team you beat this weekend. See how this works?

Anonymous said...

Your statement make no sense. Real person was clearly talking over your head as they talked about consists @ I saw Brick play this weekend & in my optional deserved better vs SJEB as they missed late when a Brick player went around the keeper but stumbled & kicked the ball over the end line. Didn't see the Freehold game vs Brick as I had no interest as I'm sure after not moving on they didn't as well. Some realistic people on here but most Re not & why can't someone compliment a team without beong accused of being from that team?

To the few SJEB posters that were bragging. FYI, I saw most of the game vs. brick while waiting for ours. You were more than lucky to escape that game with a tie. Does your coach train the girls to fake injuries to waste time? Just like he kept subbing in and out near the end for no reason? Lastly, that referee was awful and everyone that was watching commented on it. Enjoy your jaded win.

Of course you all react like that but reality is that we are the strongest academy in the country and every player worth something will end up there. The others will be lost in so called " youth development".

I think at the moment that might be true, the only club that is going to take similar position will be Copa. Match fit is not and only Copa will be strong enough to be like PDA . We are almost there already. So please I agree with all the other small entity but Copa should be not consider one of them. Thanks

Nobody ever talk like that from GFA. Never asked for scrimmage and we were positioned right at the tournament since we didn't even win our bracket.
PDA is a way stronger team than us and we would like to be left alone and work in peace. Do not start trouble with lies. You are an horrible person and should be ashamed. FAKE

Btw, while waiting for my daughter's game in a lower bracket on Sunday I had the opportunity to watch most of the Brick-Barons game and also the Splash game against a quality U14 team. I have to say that you all should embrace each other's efforts and be proud of what NJ teams have accomplished because that Brick/Barons game was awesome to watch extremely competitive, and Splash played great against a bigger and stronger, talented U14 team. Kudos to all and keep up the good work for NJ.

Copa got there by winning their NPL bracket undefeated against the likes of NYSC, Manhattan and TSF (hardly low-level) and they lost in overtime to SJEB in playoff final but got the spot as SJEB pulled out.

Let them know
The Wicked Blog is dead!

Copa's current U15, U14 and U13 are strong and will do very well when they get to the collegiate placing.

June 26, 2014 at 10:34 PM

Can this poster explain why their U15 team chose to go to the US Southeast Regional in NC last weekend instead of the Mid-Atlantic regional at PDA this weekend? The U15s were scheduled to play at the mid-Atl but I assume they dropped out since they won the Southeast Regional in a bracket of 4 teams. Ducking competition??? Or do whatever it takes to convince yourself you are at a good club?

Good luck to the Copa teams playing this weekend at the mid-Atl regional.

Johns Hopkins is a D3 school. Is anyone in their right mind going to say this is a bad school to have soccer ability open the door to? If you play soccer and want to be a doctor where would you like to go? A school that lets you emphasize academics.

Coach of Copa U15s is also the coach of the U14s that won state cup in fall and are playing at Region 1 this weekend. They took the U15s to the South East Regional as the original dates for Mid-Atlantic conflicted with Region 1.

I am sorry but if your kid gets into Johns Hopkins, it has nothing to do with soccer.
Soccer has a much better chance of getting your kid into a D1 school with superior academics than a D3 school with superior academics. The D3 school could care less about women's soccer or any other sport for that matter. Fact.

10:12 You are completely miss informed. You might want to look at the teams played and records of Ivy League schools. If you have ever spoken to a Ivy League school coach you will find out very quickly how a sport boosts your chances in getting into a school. D1 is a job with no real ending point if soccer is your priority. If your talking about a D1 with superior acedemics unless you are a football player you're not getting in there either without outstanding acedemics coming in.

No one said you didn't need good academics but the fact of the matter is that soccer can help get you in to Princeton when otherwise only your academics may not be good enough.
On the other hand since Johns Hopkins has no commitment to athletics, your soccer ability will not help you. It will be solely based on academics.

U r wrong

All of these experts on the blog give me the shitz and giggles. Drinking the liquid crack will make you all dilusional. When you are great at soccer and have great academic foundation you do not need the academies. Will it help, yes. But is it the only route, no. Schools will fins talent no matter what. To say that PDA or Copa is the our only route,please lay off the crack.

and btw 11:49 I have spoken to an ivy league coach and that's exactly what she told me.
Maybe you should speak to the coach at Johns Hopkins and ask if your daughter's special soccer skill will lower the requirements for admission to that institution.

Would it be fair to say that in NJ, the top 5 clubs with a successful record for collegiate placement are :

PDA
Match Fit
FC Copa
SJEB
NJ Wildcats

Anyone have any others?

Anonymous said...

Can't find anything published with Alumni for SJEB and Wildcats... anyone have a link?

See below the links for PDA (only boys, can't find girls) Match Fit and Copa. Impressive lists and successful record of placing these kids to play on for another 4 years with either academic or athletic money.

I have spoken to the coach of JHU he is a fantastic coach and source of information on the topic. Where ever you cane up with the idea of lowering acedemic standards from I have no idea. Those of you out there who have an interest in a D3 school with high acedemics don't let the other poster dis wade you from getting informed. These schools take sports seriously and also have the advantage of high standards in acedemics.

I encourage people to do their homework.

Can the Copa and PDA parents please just go away. You're little bitch fights have ruined the blog. Now that there's no soccer, you fight about which academies have better college placements. Holy sh!t you two are annoying!!!

This is your post. My argument is that I disagree that soccer will open any doors to admission to that institution. You can get accepted under the same requirements as everyone else, whether you play soccer or not. Your opening doors comment implies that soccer can help get you accepted when otherwise you wouldn't. This does not happen at
D3 schools like Johns Hopkins, however, for the right talent, an Ivy league school can get an athlete accepted when they normally would have zero chance at an ivy without athletics.
It is the difference between a D1 commitment to athletics and a D3 commitment to athletics.

Anonymous said...

If the child is bright enough to be accepted to JH, then she is bright enough to be accepted to any Ivy League School, with or without a athletic scholarship, not saying it wouldn't be a plus.
Do your planning NOW!
Keep in mind not all kids are wanting to go to collage.

I know one girl went to four years at Monmouth, was in the top 20 when she graduated and then became a bartender.
Let your child have their dreams... not yours!

Anonymous said...

There are to many variables when it comes to today's graduates.....whether they play sports or not. For anyone to say that someone graduated and became a bartender is clearly not in tune with the real world. It depends on what her major was; it depends on if she's waiting for a pro team to pick her up; it depends on whether or not the major she graduate with is really right for; it depends on whether the major she graduate with needs a Master's degree. So, to minimize the accomplishments these young women make in soccer and then to critize them for getting a bartending job is not only shortsided on your part but incredibly stupid.

Funny, do we say the same thing about men playing sports.....not!
What amazes me on this blog is that we have daughters but yet there are some men on this blog who still minimize their daughters abilities and accomplishments. I know professional men who can't find a job in this marketplace....who are accomplished and credentialed and they're waiting tables and tending bar.......part of letting our kids have their own dreams is to fully support their endeavors......not a half attempt that so many parents do

In response to your post

My last sentence said it all.
To say I would criticize a person for becoming a bartender is absolutely a judgment of yours, not mine! Would you have felt better if I called her a mixologist? (derogatory)
What I do criticize is the parents that insisted that she go to collage, and get a degree,and live the parents dream.
She doesn't think of it as a waste of her time but embraced her experience.
I am confident that she will be successful in whatever she pursues in life.
I'm assuming that your spelling of (critize) was a typo however, shortsided ? please define?

I'd like to know how the Copa parent justifies his/her daughter's team and club as very close to PDA. National titles? League titles? Wins? W-L-D ratio?

Shouldn't different coaches be coaching different teams at this level? Why are the Copa 15's and 14's sharing a coach? Sounds like it makes scheduling difficult.

Anonymous said...

Guess it is like PDA. The coach can get more money off two teams.

What is the basis for Copa being in the same conversation with PDA?

They both offer a field of pipe dreams. The % ratio of girls to D1 is not all it cracked up to be. Many get their without the hype.

Do you have stats from reputable sources to back up your claim?

My daughter plays for a town team that has played both PDA and Copa. PDA was much better. We beat,tied, and lost to Copa.Good team but not any better then my daughter's team.

Anonymous said...

No Freehold parents on here today straight after your game with Copa???

Thought not. See where running your mouth gets you?

Also lost to Real yesterday after beating them last week too. Face it, you had a lucky Rider Cup.

Good teams prove it once, great teams prove it again when it matters.

Anonymous said...

Nobody takes Freehold seriously as a top team. Only the Manager & delusional parents think they play top quality soccer which isn't to say they don't have good athletes on the team but they are clearly not trained or coached correctly to play high level soccer.

Anonymous said...

So true you have to post it twice! They play a close game score wise or beat a team by a goal in an ugly game them they crow that they are great but as someone took the time to point out their record against top teams is very poor which is a real indication of the level they're at not 1 random game here or there.

Who says that the Freehold parents were on here running their mouths. Do you actually know for sure that it was a Freehold parent and not someone just trying to stir the pot.

Some of you people on here are too funny. This is a board that people post usually misinformation and go under Anonymous. Same thing with the people bashing Copa and PDA. Some people just need to get a life and stop trying to live your life through your kids!!

Freehold bubble burst... quick.

Anonymous said...

The blog was FILLED last week after the Rider Cup with Freehold parents bragging. 'We beat Copa, we are better than Copa, we should have beaten Brick, it was the ref's fault, we were better than Brick.'

All quiet now...

And the Freehold manager has some of the worst sideline conduct ever with opposing teams coaches. Looks down on them and laughs/sniggers like she is better. Not one word of soccer intelligence comes out of her mouth, she is a cheerleader. She has NO CLUE about the game at all, and complains to referees about every call. Its actually quite amusing. The coach is a very good guy... not sure if he has to keep her on the sideline. She should go cheer with the parents where she belongs.

I never claimed to know who the Freehold coach is. I was making a general statement about people on this board trying to be tough which you proved my point by throwing in your comment.

Teams like Freehold & Jackson really get a bad rep from the people they have associated with the team & should not be a reflection of the players but it does hurt the chances of getting better players when teams have people on the teams staff with bad reps. Teams should be aware of how they are viewed outside of their team. I'm sure the coach has friends that they play that could bd honest with him about the view by most if not all of the teams manager. Jackson had the same problem before they folded making those players scatter all over the place. That's why it's hard to keep teams together long term.

what game was between freehold and copa yesterday? the only one i know is the rider cup.

US Club Regional was held this week at PDA fields Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. U13G Super Grouo had 4 teams in it, 1 game per day.

Copa
Real
Freehold
Braddock (VA)

Copa went 3-0 and won easily. Real were 1-1-1. Freehold won 1 and lost to both Copa and Real. Braddock lost to Copa and Freehold and tied Real.

Copa now go to US Club Nationals the week after they play the NPL Nationals, both events in North Carolina.
