Good job freehold??? Lol unbelievable

Anonymous said...

Its kind of funny how everyone is saying good job to Freehold when everyone said the finals of the Maps Tournament would be Copa and Freehold when Freehold got their butts kicked by GFA. I dont know why everyone hates GFA. They play good soccer and they proved themselves this weekend.They beat Freehold and went 4-0 this tournament. And you people have to notice that Freehold and other teams like Brick have been together for what like 3-5 years. But GFA are together for 1 year and look where they are. Give them some credit for once. I dont know how people can still say Copa is the best team by far when they cant even go to the finals in the 2nd Bracket. And they still complain it was the refs fault or bad luck. This has been going on for a month now! Come on, realize something simple. Please.

Copa has some very good players that are now not being coached correctly. They should move on. All those parents must be able to see that from last season to this is just an unbelievable drop.

Your Spring season and summer was not a fluke, you deserved every success you had. But now... It's actually hard to believe some of these results. Best player leaving or not... You have a full roster of very talented girls. Clearly the new coach is not doing your girls justice.

I heard he has changed players positions around, benched starters that started the whole Spring when you were successful...

If it doesn't change for you next spring... I'd be looking elsewhere.

Wow, Commack lost today. If GFA wins against TSF, GFA will win the EDP North.

You are correct gfa girls did not touch a soccer ball until this year... cmon girls have been playing soccer just as long as most other u14 girls since u9 or so, teams now change personal yearly so all are in the same boat, happy for the girls having success, not a gfa parent

TRIC in 2nd flight of NEWSS? They couldn't score a goal in 3rd flight of Bethseda so going to be a tough way to end the season.

5 05 clearly you have no knowledge of soccer and are just creating trouble. For what reason that's anybody s guess. Copa is a team that had a nice run up the lower flights, playing a very direct style, capitalizing on the players strengths that are no longer there. Like others that come from the lower levels, they often find it difficult to play or stay at those higher levels. without those goals from those players. this years results should be no surprise. No t about the coaching. coach seems to have them attempting to play soccer. Vut again 5:05 you wouldn t know that.
PDA recruiting a Copa defensive player.Sounds like more fiction

Anonymous said...

I watched Copa play (gfa parent). I have to say they tried to play soccer. They were passing nice and tried to keep the team work in place. However, it looked like they were just trying to learn that. Dont you think its pretty late at this point? Maybe not but they will suffer for a while while this attempt turnd into a consistant play. They need some leaders as well to pressure and outplay their opponents. At this point the play looks more described as played instinctively. But again, they tried to play nice soccer. They just could not compete at this speed and level.

TR & NJX looked very bad this weekend at Bethesda...I see both these programs on the decline especially going into the HS years as they will only draw MAPS level players!! NJX got blown out 3-0 and 6-1 this weekend. Not a good showing for a so called NJ Top 10 team....

Anonymous said...

TR's season overall wasn't bad. Bethesda is a high level tournament. Not a place for average town teams. Did NJX bring their defense or GK to the tourney? MFA brought it to the table finally.

6:43pm ... It's not fiction it's reality pda / mf have been looking at girls to build up there squads . Once edp season is done fleecing will begin . Copa fullback is talking to pda well parents are .

Anonymous said...

I would guess the Copa player and PDA is a mutual thing. It sounds like this player is going to ditch if she can. Also sounds like she has some reasons to as well. Don't be jealous. Be happy someone is doing something for their kid or the kid is doing something for herself. Isn't this what is all about?

Anonymous said...

parents talking to PDA.. is not the same as PDA reaching out ....
a lot of parents think their kids can play there on the top teams. The reality is few will. Seen the Copa play and like others say, didn't notice that standout player. But then again
PDA has what-3 teams in this age group. So sure it is possible ; just probably not the ecnl team

Anonymous said...

PDA team needs defensive help. It is obvious by their goal differential and total goals given up. I think the coach would be looking for help as current players not doing the Job in the ECNL league.

Not making the ECNL playoffs is a tremendous black eye on the program.

They will have to fix it and they will look for help to get it fixed.

Anonymous said...

6:43 - Copa have never played a direct style. Old coach was having them take goal-kicks short, and passing on the ground until they got high up the pitch and looked for through balls. New coach is trying to get them to pass all the way into the 18 as the fast forwards both left the team so through balls difficult now.

So your 'run up the lower flights playing a direct style' comment clearly shows that it's you that has no knowledge. Copa finished 2nd in EDP 1st Div North in Spring with no defeats, won a tough PDA flight and made Semi's in a top flight at Delco before competing at 2 National Finals.

Do some research or actually watch them play more than once before you speak up.

Anonymous said...

You NJ teams are funny! TR didn't have a bad season? I guess your expectations are pretty low then as they had a losing record in a 2nd division of EDP & finished behind teams like NJ Wildcats & whoever Bridgewater is & just went to a real tournament mind you in the 3rd flight & didn't score a goal. I have seen Copa play last season & they were okay playing mostly to their speed up top but nothing impressive as most NJ are. Don't know GFA yet so we'll see if NJ can come up with another good top level team or just be average like the rest. How many NJ teams in top flight of Bethseda & how did they do?

11:54 - I wouldn't have the best centre-back sat on the bench... thats for sure.

New coach needs to recognize quickly that is a HUGE issue. Natural leader on defense sits most games now and when she does play she plays outside-back. Awful coaching decision.

Copa took a top 3 team and in 4short months turned them into maybe a top 20 team,great job DOC.....

Old copa coach must have been a bloody genius, as current copa team with 4 coaches can't achieve same results.
Thats the only difference from last season.

Yup definitely the coaching.

Or maybe COPA was never that good since they were in lower flights...

What's the story on SJEB? They didn't do very well at Bethesda. Just one bad weekend or something more? Don't know much about them.

Old Copa coach speeks the truth. It hurts when its blunt. The leadership in Copa land is horrendous. And although the Copa folks were warned with a leaky email, they stayed. Now its shame on you Copa parents.

Hey brick guy you can't even beat freehold How can talk about being a top team....Never a top team tHe end is near

Anonymous said...

NJ soccer is mess. You guys kill successful programs like PDA or the very few teams you have that go out & represent in top tournaments against real competition then brag about making a final in a low level tournament only to NOT even make the finals. You make your State look bad & that is why NJ will never have a dominate team with all the jealousy & in fighting. This team will kill this team, this team can't even beat this team talk makes you look ignorant but it is amusing to us soccer educated people so keep putting down clubs or teams that actually do something from your State while the rest of Region 1 continues to get stronger.

Anonymous said...

Thanks your input hillbilly from region 1....the comments are from two or three jerks the same ones over and over again...so before you jump in and fall for the trolls tip a cow or something or better yet churn butter...PDA..MF do okay...but for now many clubs will not support programs that does not support the average household with players that can play at ecnl's level...they exclude families that can't afford the overpriced tag for less training an . Large rosters.that's why PDA and MF at thus bracket can't compete they merely have players that pay to play

Anonymous said...

This is a region1 forum not a NJ specific forum, but this age group is dominated by NJ. FYI NY, Philly, Baltimore, Boston, Wash, DC and Richmond are all included in Region 1 so exactly what prompts the "hillbilly" comment? By the way your writing suggests that your own education may be wanting.

Don t worry about NJ soccer, just look to see some of the top high school teams n the country.
Or check the box score of top 5 ranked U. Of Virginia first round win in college cup tournament, to see 3 NJ kids with points.

Anonymous said...

Copa parents. Why you blame everything on your coach? Don't yoy realize that many team has re-formed after the high school factor kicked in? The fact that you lost couple players is something that has happened to all teams. However, other teams got new ones. Did you or did you get new key players? Doesn't look like. It must difficult for yiur coach to deal with this and crazy parents' assumptions. Your success from last season was not as amazing as you think. You have not beaten sjeb, gfa, brick, pda, etc. You just had more luck playing against others in NOT top level tournaments. Since you did not beat anyone at the top, why you think you were such a strong team. If you really want to become a strong team, support your coach and give him time to do the transition. Stop demoralizing your girls, your yeam with an imaginary past success you thought you had. Time to wake up.

Anonymous said...

Troll alert! You can make the argument for Brick to be #1 based on beating SJEB & Stallions this season but they have not played PDA in over 2 years. You can also make the argument that SJEB are #1 as well. Hard to know who is really #1 in NJ when all the teams that claim to be #1 don't play each other. If you go by Got Soccer rankings then SJEB has done more in a calendar year to be thought of as #1 but if you go by this season Brick has wins over SJEB, GFA & Stallions but didn't play PDA where the other 3 teams don't have wins over Brick. Either way the Fall season combined with the Spring season will determine who is #1 in NJ but NJ needs to start winning tournaments outside if their State to be a Regional threat.

Anonymous said...

it has been quite a while since I last visited this site. But it never disappoints for providing high comedy. Take a look at your daughters team - How many do you think will play in college --- not many. And that is a fact.

NJ teams aren't any good - really................

I would take it the other direction. There are a lot of places for players to play in NJ for this age group and the talent is spread around, maybe most don't want the financial commitment to play for ECNL teams. But in this age group there are a lot of good players and a lot of good teams. Actually like that fact, it makes most league (NPL/EDP/etc.) worth while.
NJ teams normally fair very well in tourneys outside of NJ - Some play at different levels and some get seeded at different levels but most do represent well and compete in every game. Remember for the most part teams aren't always placed in the correct brackets - that is why Got soccer points tend to screw up some tournaments And as the players get older you will see that the top 4 or 5 flights of showcase tournaments all have quality teams.

Just enjoy the f'kn games and get over yourself. You are not playing your daughter is and I'm sure she gives 100% every time she steps on the pitch for games or training. So show her you care and stop being an a s s.

#1 in the state...LOL...you were #3 in the weak side of EDP,if you put both side together you about #7 so wake up///

Anonymous said...

Here is another troll looking to start an attack on another team. If you take the EDP North & EDP Central teams that finished in the top 3 you would clearly list the top 3 from the Central before any of the top 3 from the North & to suggest otherwise is just plain ridiculous. SJEB, Premier & Brick would always be ahead of Commack, GFA & HBC. SJEB did lose a game to GFA this season but Brick has wins over GFA & New Hyde Park which are 2 of the top 4 in the North according to the standings & a win over SJEB as well with only a loss to Premier. If you are going to attack a team don't make it personal just stick to the facts & to suggest if you combined the 2 divisions that a team would be 7th make sense. As far as #1 in NJ I think someone already said you can go in a couple of directions with SJEB & Brick being the favorites & PDA being another but you cannot compare them because there are no common opponents. Seems to be a lot of jealousy in that State which is why you as a State get attacked on here.

Anonymous said...

All of the teams headed to U15 will take the fall off due to high school soccer season with most playing in a few tournaments in the late fall. Only exception will be PDA and MF ECNL teams as they will not allow the girls on those teams to play high school soccer (just like to boys academy teams). It s a shame those girls will miss out on a great expierence.

Not true about HS at least I know MF allows them to play. Their season starts when HS season is over.

Anonymous said...

Still don't understand the Brick references? I see a post claiming a few teams including Brick could be considered the #1 team from NJ & it causes hysteria. Don't believe it's from Brick as they aren't on here saying we did this or that because they don't need to looking at their history which I'm sure they're pretty secure with where they are as a team but clearly the people that follow them so closely are not. Personal attacks clearly are out of nothing more then jealousy that people talk about them & clearly not their team. Why not mention your team so we can all dissect what your team does & see what level of success your team is having. NJ has a couple of teams that represent well with Brick being one of them so get a hobby. NY, PA, MD & VA you don't see this type of behavior from it's teams which is why NJ takes a bad rap from the rest of the Region. NJ cannot even get along which is why they don't produce a Regional powerhouse which is shame as there is a lot of talented players there. Glad I don't live in "the Garden State."

I ride the train to work everyday & read this blog & cannot believe the time people have to bash a team they know nothing about or stalk a team by looking up them on Got Soccer & follow them on a Twitter now. This is what is wrong with youth sports these days parents who ruin things for their kid & their own team by constantly embarrassing themselves every time they come on here. My team also has been mentioned & dissected really for no reason other then someone cones on here pretending to be from the team bragging just to then sit back & watch the attacks. We have to be smarter people because now we are being laughed at by the neighboring States. We here in NJ have a bunch of good teams & it doesn't matter who you want to put #1 as you can make the argument for a few teams based on this Fall season. Stallions won the State tournament, SJEB was won enough to be ranked #1 by Got Soccer & could win their EDP flight still, GFA has beaten SJEB this season at a tournament & Brick has done well this season by beating all 3 teams. You can go the route of PDA is still PDA they just play different teams & maybe if they entered would have win the States again? Relax & stop embarrassing yourselves, your child, your team & our State.

Actually I thought the post at 5:23am was a good post as it points out how crazy some parents are when it comes to their child's team but what's more disturbing is the fixation on another group of children's team. Why anyone would be so obsessed to follow another teams daily activities is beyond me. I too believe there are a couple of really good teams in NJ in this she group but I really hope that these parents that post aren't on any of them as I can see why from outside the State we look like the cast of the Jersey Shore. Good luck to the NJ teams competing in their upcoming tournaments & let's try not to hate going into the holidays, just a thought.

Actual Top players will be going to ecnl teams, tough decision for ecnl having to cut players from the team which been there for many years. "We been here from u9, paid $15+k plus all the travel expenses. You can't cut my daughter. I was told she a Top player and told all my friends this"; will be spoken from several parents. Does not matter what teams did until now, u15 teams will look much different with different players & rankings.

Sorry to burst your bubble, Skip, but try this on for size. Not only do the ecnl teams allow their girls to play hs soccer, but they did so well with their hs teams that six pda ecnl players were selected to play in a national hs all star game. You can look it up. Must be all political. How's that for missing out on a great experience?

EDP Scores from Today :
Real 5-1 over NJX...What happened to NJX and why the decline?? NJX has been blown out in at least 60% of their games to date including tournaments. Not a NJ Top 10 at all. I would say more like a 15-20 ranked team now.

Which PDA team is Copa goalie going to? Also, when you say 'fullback' you could be talking about anybody this season... That coach has moved everybody around every where.

Anonymous said...

Leaving Copa is a positive change but to PDA? That would negate the move. More money, travel and roster size accpanies by less training and development. PDA is. A showcase experience for the u16-17. Joining them now would mean regression or stagnant- Static growth. No doubt they have an ECNL tag however isbit really worth? We know there are other options like STA, Stallions etc...but if you think youbwere unhappy with COPA, PDA is not far from making you relive those negative moments on the side line. Especially with large roster sizes.
