Best player are from the ECNL (national teamers)

This is not the same as saying all ECNL players are better than players from other leagues/competitions.

There is a huge group below the elite. HUGE.

Stallions move on to the finals..
win 1-0 in double OT

Ecnl is the playground for the elite well-off players close to an ecnl club. Is this the best the USA has or at least and is it better than Japan, Germany, etc.? Eventually time will tell.

NJ Rush over NJ Crush 3-0

Sjeb, brick, would be more competitive in ecnl than pda & mf, probably same scenario in every state w/ 1-3 teams which would be a better fit.

Ok how many are from nj?

Why Does Match fit ECNL have 25 players and PDA ECNL 20 ?
Besides $$$

Why would that gal leave SJEB for an ECNL club? If she is that good she should have been ID'd regardless of club.

Anonymous said...

Apparently the family thinks that Penn Fusion can offer her something that SJEB can't and of course better development.

Anonymous said...

Of the top 25 teams in the nation, three have a win ratio below 50%.
Guess where they reside?
That is right....you guessed it New Jersey.
We have a lot of work to do before being considered one of the top teams. Looks good on Gotsoccer, however points aren't everything!

Gs win ratio is from team's inception, ranking s/b nulled yearly as teams teams improve /regress to show current status. Games won/lose at u9-11 or even 13 are n/a anymore.

Anonymous said...

Sjeb development got her to the national pool; lets see ecnl development can sustain her. We wish her the best of luck.

We need a system of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc leagues where top team in the bracket move up and bottom teams move down. Need to get the "real" top teams together. Is playing pda & mf really helping the real top teams in their ecnl bracket or would they be better off playing sjeb, gfa, brick, copa copa copa (joking about copa)?

Looks like major player changes coming to pda for next year, sorry parents.

These comments never make sense as people try to connect comments to teams without knowing what they are talking about.

Anonymous said...

I assume the Brick stalker is back as it's hard to tell who they reference but instead of another tournament looking for points Brick as well as other teams are going to College Showcases as these teams have players in HS already. These teams are thinking about getting their players exposure so hard to knock them for doing right by their players. EDP season is still going on which will be giving points to the teams going well SJEB, Stallions, Brick & GFA.

"Gs win ratio is from team's inception"

Flat out wrong. Win ratio is the same time frame as their points are from.

Actually, Vince Lombardi is not the first to make that quote ! For your further edification.
drumroll ...please !

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing is a well-known quotation in sports. It is attributed to UCLA Bruins football coach Henry Russell ("Red") Sanders, who spoke two different versions of the quotation. In 1950, at a Cal Poly San Luis Obispo physical education workshop, Sanders told his group: "Men, I'll be honest. Winning isn't everything," then following a long pause, "Men, it's the only thing!" In a three-part article, December 7, 1953, on Red Sanders, by Bud Furillo of the Los Angeles Herald and Express, the phrase is quoted in the sub head. Furillo said in his unpublished memoirs Sanders first made the statement to him after UCLA's loss to USC in 1949. The phrase is quoted in the 1953 film Trouble Along the Way by Sherry Jackson's character, Carol Williams. In 1955, in a Sports Illustrated article preceding the 1956 Rose Bowl, he was quoted as saying "Sure, winning isn't every thing; it's the only thing."

The quotation is widely, but wrongly attributed to American football coach Vince Lombardi, who probably heard the phrase from UCLA coach Sanders. Lombardi is on record using the quotation as early as 1959 in his opening talk on the first day of the Packers’ training camp. The quotation captured the American public's attention during Lombardi's highly successful reign as coach of the Packers in the 1960s. Over time, the quotation took on a life of its own. The words graced the walls of locker rooms, ignited pre-game pep talks, and echoed from the rafters of banquet halls. According to the late James Michener's Sports in America, Lombardi claimed to have been misquoted. What he intended to say was "Winning isn't everything. The will to win is the only thing." However, Lombardi is on record repeating the original version of the quotation on several occasions.

They just had that tournament ,it's called state cup.
The stallions won and are #1 in nj

Anonymous said...

Yes they are 2014 State cup "tournament" champs (congrats), maybe not #1 in nj

All the top teams do not play each other in a round robin like other tournaments, some lower teams can have easier path based on lottery scheduling & top teams plating early knocking one out.

Again congrats & enjoy winning this one. Hope to play you soon.

Likely there is not a "better" team in NJ than Americans/Stallions

Equal? Yeah. Possibly.

That is THREE excellent age group teams for Stallions, joining the 15s and the 17s

Cant survive not being ECNL?

Im happy for the success of this team. Enjoy being the State Cup Champs. Of course teams can survive without being in ECNL, it just hard to beat these ECNL teams. They truly are the class of this age group.

If you can compete with them than good for you.


Anonymous said...

Congrats to stallions but your current resume against mid level nj teams does convince anyone that you are #1 in NJ. Just state cup champs. I do agree that your girls can compete against ecnl teams because ECNL is an overinflated league. Like Fox news is to mainstream media. All fluff no substance. Look forward to playing you soon too. Hopefully you are in a top bracket come next tournament to better assess your strengths and weaknesses.

Btw...what is PdA and MF current winning percentage because we all know they have failed to update their status. It would not look good. Is PDA_MF or does is it ECNL that does not want their ego tarnished?

STOP drinking that ECNL koolaid and beliven The rest of the folks on here PDA/mf has nothing on many of the teams in the top 10 of nj. So stay in your closet or schedule some friendlies so we don't tarnish your record or the ecnl illusion.

In nj EDP allstar team will run circles around MF/pda combined. That will definitely not be a good look for our ECNL illusionist. Nj is densely populated with many quality girls playing outside of the ecnl realm other remote patts of the country fit into the ecnl scheme. Small state many girls tight competition and we do not drink ECNL koolaid. Way over priced for not a hell of a lot.its a fad that will change overtime.

it appears thatEdp has a bi inferiority complex to the ECNL.

one question?


If EDP players are better than ECNL players: why is it that 95% of the players ID2 for the Region for this age group come from the ECNL and not EDP.


EDP and ECNL participate in the same US club ID2 program. I guess theUS Club evaluators got it wrong too?







Anonymous said...

Coaches sounds like we all agree.. lets make this allSTAR game happen..edp is in what about ecnl???

Anonymous said...

Uhhhh...ID2 is run by US Club soccer and ECNL is a US Club league and is positioned as "the Elite" league. Of course US club wants the lions share of their ID2 players to come form this league.

Anonymous said...

So yes..I think if you want to be identified by ID2..playing in ECNL will increase your chances. It is good for the business if it works this way.

It does not mean that these players identified are not strong players, but it is not a level playing field to find the best players..it is to find the best ECNL players.

Its simple... play the all-star game..why all the dodging?

Id2 another illusion to pay more $$ makes some parents feel good .. better girls in edp..play us, don't dodge just show up..

Penn fusion and Fc Virginia were at spirit this summer and played vs IGFA ( as an example of an EDP team) well two ties ( penn fusion was losing 2-1 until 30 sec before end of the game. Level is the same and everybody is blowing their own horn. At the end the good players will find their way or not depends on many factors like everything else in life.

I typically speak out against Ecnl. Not a fan. But you EDP guys are beyond delusional. In PAE there is a good league called Pags. Yes a couple top teams are not doing it but still pretty competetive. Last year my older daughter played Pags. The EDP league in our area was made up of teams that were pissed that they were declined from Pags 1. All 2nd rate teams. Maybe in your area it's different. But don't ever think for one minute that in the long term EDP's best players would stand a chance against Ecnl's best. EDP will lose players the older you get. Ecnl will gain players the older they get. I hate the hype of Ecnl but it's a fact.

Of course they would stand a chance. If I could pick my team of non ecnl studs I would bet money on them.

Here is gotsoccer info this taken on 10-28-14

Ranked Statistics
Games 50
W-D-L 19-17-14
Goals For 64
Goals Against 47
Goal Ratio 1.36
Win % 38.0%

1.That is true you have not lost a game in EDP 2 wins 3 ties 0 losses.
The best you could do is tie the top teams. I believe a time back you were told to dress casual and take your ties off at the games.(great line I wish I thought of it)

2. As you can see from the stats above YOUR win, draw, losses are distorted to suit yourself.

3.If gotsoccer is broken you should not be claiming all the points you have received. I suggest you call them and have all you stats corrected so You can't pick and choose what is valid.

4.My tiny brain is wise enough to know when someone is PREVARICATING.

Anonymous said...

Topic has been ECNL then somehow just snack to Brick? If you are going to only use Got Soccer as a barometer then maybe look into it a little harder as Got Soccer does not update always as games are played. I too can go back to look at the last 50 games listed on their team which takes you back to the MAPS Cup last Fall which actually covers 51 games & since I'm educated can count & if you do that their record according to the Got Soccer results are 28 wins, 14 ties & 9 losses so not sure where the other record is from as it doesn't match what Got Soccer has listed for them & that is a winning percentage of 55% so not sure where the 38% comes from either. If you are randomly going to continue to talk about a team state facts & do a little research so you don't just look like a crazy obsessed stalker. As far as the ECNL if your child isn't playing there why are you so under about it? Why are you not putting all this energy into your own team? Maybe you're not happy where you are then change it don't just bash what others are doing.

Anonymous said...

You folks aren't very bright, especially in Missouri I guess. What the person said, is count the games up manually. The first two pages of game scores right there on gotsoccer. Green=win, Black=tie, red=loss. Then, you will see the same number, the correct one. 28 GREEN, 14 BLACK, 9 RED. It's first grade math folks, and it's right there.

Thanks for ODP advice above, much appreciated, put your brain to great use today and help out few kids/parents at local club. Kids play MOSA Nat 2- some have promise, but I would certainly not do ODP or PDA/MF at this age, they are 9 years old at U10 level.

NO WAY I would do ODP ar U10? at this age 100% money grab. They cut nobody and last I heard there is no U10 national team so what is the end game? recognition? I would rather do RDS red bull camps, you have to try out to make them and If you make them and progress, for boys academy you have a leg up on other boys if you want to go academy route. ODP is a good experience 1 time, but not this early. Lots of money, the practices each week are in trenton, which is convienent for nobody except the ODP staff. Even if they boast Carli Lloyd (which they didnt choose her 1st time) and Christie Rampone went through the system it was a much different landscape back then, not as many recognition options...ODP is old and antiquated. It's just not needed if you want to get to the next level.

Copa's struggles this season is nothing to do with that player leaving. It's the new coach getting things wrong. Not training them as hard, and benching girls that were starters last year when they were competitive. Also he has changed some players positions and it just isn't working. DOC having an influence over new coach that he didn't have over old coach, and now we are losing to teams we have beaten before. They are calling it 'development'. Why can't we develop and win at the same time like last year??

Welcome to the Copacabana where reality starts to set in & you start to see through the lies. Reality is the team are the only ones who aren't surprised by them struggling this season as this was expected for all the reasons mentioned on here before about the step up in class without the same level of coaching & players. If you aren't happy about what you see as being misled then after the Spring season you might have to look for a new team for your daughter.

Anonymous said...

What was posted about Copa might have been hurtful but it was the truth. The swindling of D licence DOC has come to light and his negative vibe is making its way down to the parents. As frustration builds the soccer becomes second to the scandal that is brewing in the organization. Copa has girls that can play but they know when they are given bs and it impacts their play. No matter how much they train or play it will never be to their fullest potential because they know they are being taken for a ride. Its best to jump ship soon before all of the local non ecnl u14 teams are filled. Now is the time. Change may not be simple at first but without it you will always regret the what if. The one thing we all have is our word and your DOC does not fullfil his end imagine what else his mitts are getting into?

; we want to join your team,
I m sure it is a quality non ECNL team conveniently
located, highly competitive & great coaching, with plenty roster spots and great cost.
What team did you say that was, I mean you know some much & have no problem calling out Copa.

Sounds more like inside information coming from the Copa families to me.

Copa is definitely running the sight. Just removed the truth such a shame.

The naughty kitten who dirties his mitten may not have some pie. There is STA, TSF, FuRy, Holmdel, Freehold wildcats are all teams that provide similar training with DOCs that are a shade more promising. Do they have drama yes but question is the level of stinch is no where near as foul as Copa. With the eight combination of Copa any of the previous teams can be as competitive or better. Last time I looked not one their doc ever pulled up in a luxury car.

pt pleasant comments interesting. I did believe as father of EDP lower level team daughter, that winning that type of title used to matter? correct? so the tin cup or paper cup whatever is true, it is a shame though? why hide from the best, we seek the best, but don't always win, which I am ok with. At least we try to win against the best and when we don't we say ok, we played a number 4 team from NY, we lost to the number 10 team in NJ etc. At times you must take pride in losing, to become better, if you are undefeated, and never, ever lose, wouldn't you say their is a problem?

Assuming Copa lost today since sites been quiet and no Copa Copa Copa.... Anyone know, or care?

Copa squeaked a 2-0 win against a deflated STA they had only 6 shots on goal

Anonymous said...

How poor is STA now, not to take away from Copa... They have barely scored 3 goals in there last eight games and continue to lose. Was it the coaching change or the personel change or both. That was a very good team and some what dominant for a long time. Laughing at the fact they also got GS points in last tournament without a win...

It was part of the poaching tour from last season. Best players left to play with the best of the worst from ecnl.

Anonymous said...

Copa played the white STA team and only one player left to go to another team. The other starting forwards are out with an injury and left the team due to social issues.

Anonymous said...

That is partially true state red/ white is what's left. What you have left is a midlevel team at best. Although they still try to play soccer to their credit; they just dont have the same team fromnlast year. And that's that no matter how you slice it. The coach is great. she is full of knowledge and a great resume too. The issue is fielding a strong 11 and supporting cast. Too late for that.

NJX 1-0 over SJEB

Anonymous said...

looks like the pre-ecnl U13 teams would win the edp the way these teams are playing

Anonymous said...

Wow! NJX is doing better then everyone thought.

Anonymous said...

The only games pre ecnl teams would win would be verses their ecnl teams. MF and pda are delusional come out and take your losses on the chin. Its part of development. You have lost more games than won games and have given up more goals then scored goals so how elite are you not much. Your u15 are playing at NEWS, SO why not y'all? Its okay we understand the real reason. But remember you can not hide forever.

hey the brick guy woke up!!!great game...

1-0 isn't a blow out. Odds are NJX got lucky beating SJEB. Some of their players left and went to academy teams. The Baron's ain't what they use to be. But a win is a win. NJX was due for one.

Anonymous said...

Barons didn't lose any player . Lucky game by NJX period.

Anonymous said...

Fact: STA has 5 injured players from last years team on the bench. 4 of which have been sitting there since before Stars and two of which were starting strikers last season. Despite that the team is still very competitive on the field. Hopefully most of them will be back by spring. Injuries are part of the game but lets not pretend that 5 injured players has no affect on a team.

The top ecnl teams are at Bethesda ,you are where you belong at newss,just try to a game!!!!!!

GFA moves to #3 while the team that claimed they be #1 continues to drop & are now #6 with the arrow pointing down. Freehold out of the top 10 no surprise as they can makes games ugly enough to tie once in a while but rarely if ever beat too teams. STA on the way down but more due to injuries I would suspect then talent. Nice to see some new players challenging for the top of NJ soccer rather then the same 3 teams.

Anonymous said...

You will see when freehold will kill GFA at maps tournament in two weeks if they play bad soccer like u said. Freehold is one of the best out there for long. GFA is nothing and they will get smashed.

Anonymous said...

Why do IGFA, Copa and Freehold even bother with the Fall Maps Challenge. Cleary a sign of point chasing. If you are truly a top level team you would test yourself out a Bethesda or Newss. Sick of these jersey teams staying in their bubble and and making a mockery of the GS points system.

Anonymous said...

IGFA is also at newss... As long as they do not ask for your money I think any team can play what they want as they have their own reason..

Anonymous said...

Does PDA and MF play soccer at all? What bubble will you label it as? The fear bubble...so why are there more EDp teams in top bracket verses ECNl teams....oh I know they don't need to play in tournaments.. LMAO MF did not even make the top bracket...so much for elite...and PDA??? Where are they come out and join the action or are you still regrouping after a dismal fall at least MF is playing in the second bracket at Bethesda

Anonymous said...

Pay 2 times more, play 2 times less, with double roster, and random weel playing assignment. Then complain about others because they pay 2x less, play 2 times more, with 1/2 roster. It takes 2 times more time to find out that the team is actually not as good since they thought...

Anonymous said...

Pda and matchfit clearly doesn't have best talent in state of nj if you do why do you avoid top nj teams . Ecnl is a joke

Anonymous said...

Most of this blog is full of gibberish. Many of the people say "Oh this team is gonna kill this team." No. Stop. Just be quiet and let the girls do the talking. Just like the Copa parents said, "Oh we are gonna kill GFA this weekend." But the total opposite happened. GFA killed them. There are many good teams in New Jersey. Most of these people dont know what they are saying. On how GFA doesnt belong in the top 10. Or how Freehold cant be in the top 10. Or Homedell should be in the top 10. If these teams werent good enough, they wouldnt be there. So please stop talking about this "Copa Copa Copa or this team is gonna kill this team." You never know the final score until the final whistle. So just stay quiet before you say anything. And GFA is a good team. I am a Barons parent and in the tournament I thought it would be easy for us. But they showed us soccer and they played really well. So before you say GFA sucks or they never went to Nationals, think again. And if GFA sucked, would they kill Copa (the greatest team in the universe) 4-0 and go to Nationals in December? Yes, they are going to Nationals in December just for a different team called the Valkeries in the Super Y League. So people stop judging teams before you dont know the facts. (Not trying to support GFA, but they're getting a lot of hate for no reason when they play good soccer like other teams)

11:55 if GFA sucks, would they beat Copa 4-0? If they sucked would they beat PDA Splash in the Winter? If they sucked would they go to Nationals in December? If they sucked would they go to the highest tournaments? If they sucked would they beat the Barons? If they sucked would they be 10th in the US and 3rd in New Jersey. These rankings arent just people putting them their. They deserve it. So shut up before you know the facts.

COPA is better than IGFA or barons or brick . That is a fact. Few games with bad luck do not change that. COPA has better quality . This is just a temporary moment of bad luck and bad refs. IGFA was lucky to tie the game at the EDP cup and this past weekend some lucky shots. COPA will come back stronger and stronger! As I said before they will be number 1 soon.brick is finished and barons will lose more players. Future is all COPA . Fact!

Anonymous said...

Don't get excited. We (GFA) don't need to prove anything to anybody. We just need to go out there and show results. We have not won anything big yet but definitely showed some impressive results. Your mouth will not win any gave. Our girls don't need any advocate. The best one for them is their ability to compete and win. We will lose games, especially against physical teams like Brick since our girls are more technical than physical which makes a big difference during the tournaments when you need to play 4+ games. Girls, keep training, working hard, your "voice" will be heard beyond this blog.

BTW., nice compliment from the SJEB parent (November 3, 2014 at 10:13 PM). Thank you.

Anonymous said...

The best player of GFA and brick earlier left for MF. Without her these two teams are not the same. Quality is not the same. She is one of the best player in the state if not the best. Big mistake to let her go.

Anonymous said...

Slick you are funny! Both teams have been better without her is it a coincidence? She hadn't been at Brick for 4 years so that systems makes no sense & GFA has done better without her as will I'm sure MF when she's leaves there too because they don't see her as special as her parents do.

As was said, she hasn't been at Brick for 3-4 years and they have won more events without her than with. A complete non issue. Brick is about team first, not the individual player. Any one player could leave, and they would manage to stay where they've been since the beginning of the age group. It's a proven fact.

At this level one player does not make a team, except arguably a keeper and that could be debated.

Anonymous said...

one player does make a team,look at SJEB and COPA,both lost best player and now cant win a game

Anonymous said...

I would not put SJEB in the same category as Copa 2 totally different teams. 1 team is ranked #1 by Got Soccer in the Nation & the other team won games last Spring against lesser teams to elevate themselves up the ranks.

COPA copa copa! I agree with 10:20 barons are same as brick or GFA or these kind of teams. COPA is another level. The next ECNL club and showing the best soccer at this age group.

Anonymous said...

C'mon...#1 in the nation and you have never won a major tournament, much less had results even worth talking about in a top brackets.
Jeff cup, 2nd bracket - semis
Bethesda -didnt make it out of the top bracket.
A majority of your points are for playing in your league.
Stop...just stop

Anonymous said...

12,000 of the 29,000+ is from league play do not a majority to start with. Rider Cup champs over NYSC & MAPS Cup champs over Brick. What has your team done or won? Clearly not enough or you would be ranked ahead of SJEB. Statement was in reference to can't win a have without best player yet Got Soccer still had team ranked #1 without player so statement like yours saying majority of points is incorrect. Only play top teams in top flights & won NPL Regional but was forced to drop out & give it to Copa so not sure about not having success. Not going to win every game when you only play top teams which I'm sure your team does not. Worry about your team.

Anonymous said...

wow really OK, not majority but 40% of points playing from mediocre league. Wins over Brick and NYSC...your missing the point. Leave your bubble in NJ an play some top competition. Rider and MAPS Cup??...we know how you did at Jeff Cup and Bethesda, how about Annandale, Stars of Mass, Eclipse, Dallas Cup, San Diego. These teams, clubs and tournaments are on a whole different level. Dont worry our ECNL Team don't chase points so in the true sense please enjoy your paper ranking. Dont think a team that's #1 in the country would ever lose to a #50 (NJX).

Anonymous said...

Already have wins over ECNL teams so you can continue to believe your at the top but you don't play the best teams in the age group just teams from prominent clubs which is not the same. Played PDA, FC Bucks etc not any different then the teams we play on a regular basis just those teams pay more money to be on them that's it. Would be great to see a league set up if the best teams from the age groups not predetermined clubs. MF in this age group has been weak since the beginning but now they have an ECNL team enough said.

Anonymous said...

I agree , you are talking about status. Brick , barons , GFA and all the others in the top ten can play in a competitive way with any ECNL team out there. At spirit this summer there were ECNL teams like FC virgina , penn fusion etc and our teams did well. Out together a nice league with all these teams and you will see MF at the buttom of all and pda ( lost with barons at their own tournament) struggling too.
