WAGS is pretty poor in terms of NJ teams :

Marlton JPS
Mercer FC Santos
NJ Stallions
NJ Wildcats
Real Galaxy
Stronghold

I guess all the top teams are saving money and playing EDP Cup. No travel costs and quality games against each other. Seems like a good move to me.

And PDA having a nice tournament into the finals over tophat , who won at the PDA tourney, representing NJ
Well win or lose.

TR beat tophat a few months back,no big deal!!!pda should try playing some top teams and see how they do....

Splash closes it out with a fifth win and the fourth by at least three goals. Pure dominance.

Great job by PDA

Should be a fine year for their mid-range aged clubs.....

When I wrote the above well done by PDA, I forgot the following -and now a word from the haters and el stupidos.
To you , TR beat top hat., your a..joke, I ll take your bait troll.
I guess we should be talking about TR, or your team, OH. By the way who won the top flight of that tourney WAGS,where TR beat top hat?
You would never put that piece of info in your post..yeah top hat went on to run the table. Give credit where credit is due,.

Speaking of TR, where are they this preseason? They did Stars last year if I recall, but not listed anywhere this season.

Splash go 5-0 and you people still bash them. Too funny. I love jealous people.

Only 5 quality teams out of 16 at Eclipse this year. The rest were average.

Splash should go play the Spirit top bracket or FC Stars top 2 brackets and see if they go 5-0.

Splash have not dominated a NJ team for a very long time. Won most state cup games in spring by 1 goal and lost to SJEB at their own tournament.

Anonymous said...

LOL...like splash would play anywhere,they cant control who they play...OVERATED

Anonymous said...

Splash played only couple games with the top NJ teams this spring. SJEB won against them and this team did not have a strong season this spring at all. The risk to face top NJ teams is the ? credibility if they lose to "weak" teams from smaller & much cheaper clubs.

Anonymous said...

I wonder how Splash would perform in Spirit

Anonymous said...

nobody only the losers on this blog care about a one off game. Win is a win even if it is by a goal, I know it also counts as a win for the losers in those "1"goal" games. You all ,are that good, .. "if only" is what I hear you telling yourself.. the fields, the refs, the development, the money, the coach.. wah wah wah wah!
please what state are you all from, like is there a NJ team that is better, what team in the state based on consistency & record over the last year is better;(I mean after all they beat TR in the state cup who beat top hat LOL ) When another team steps up to the consistency, We'll cheer them too. In the past, SJEB Americans were a close second.. but it is a new seasonal year, teams are gone & rosters have changed. so let's give it time, again on early season form, props to PDA, for representing NJ.
Can't wait to see all you wannabes representing at the next set of tourneys spirit & FC stars, really go NJ, cause it is good for all of us. But please no excuses over the next weeks if you aren't quite where you hoped. Just keep working your kids to be be better. Thank goodness there is a team for the rest of our kids to play on.

Anonymous said...

Yup you guys are so right, PDA Splash is so scared to play NJ teams so they travel to Chicago to beat a couple of number 1s. They would do anything to avoid playing the NJ power house teams. Dudes, wake up this team is about trying to win a ECNL National Title, they will use these events as warmups.

Below is what they did this weekend. GO ahead and say it Impressive.


4-0 NORTH SHORE UNITED U14 GIRLS (WI #N/A)
4-1 NSA THUNDER (IL #4)
1-0 GOL SA GSA 01 ECNL (GA #2)
3-0 TOPHAT SC TH 19 GOLD (GA #1)
4-1 CINCINNATI UNITED PREMIER CUP GOLD (OHs #1)

They would win. Does anyone really believe they are better? Play them five times - you might win one because everybody has a bad day, but Splash is way above the rest of NJ. Played them on age and when they played up - they are tremendous. I think breakers a year younger are even better, but Splash is very very good

Anonymous said...

Nobody said Splash was a bad team. However, how can you say they would win if they did not win their own? The disrespect to others is what triggers all of these nonsense discussions.

Anonymous said...

The accurate and well deserved criticism is their actions when they lose. Not shaking hands, turning jerseys inside out, refusing second place trophies. . . Acting like losers instead of winners. No class.

Not really sure how you pulled off that result but we have played both teams and you really don't belong on the same field with that team. Strange results happen all the time and they obviously shrugged off that game to go on to win the tournament and you guys obviously proved that game was a fluke by the rest of your results.

Anonymous said...

 12-0. 35 goals for 6 against.

Where is the development? Sounds like the team is not being challenged, I would what my kid to be developing and playing against teams/kids who are better, which is the only way to continue to improve. maybe time for the girls to play up or join the same league a sjeb who challenged them?

Anonymous said...

@ PDA I know you have a solid point.
If the rankings are true then ducking NJ teams is not the issue. Envy is. PDA has an established framework made for national recognition. There are teams in NJ that can compete at the national level but its framework is different. Six of one thing, half dozen of another. It could be through tournaments or through league play. The goal is national recognition.

I'm not a big fan of PDA but I hold no grudges. I am underdog fan. There are small clubs giving ECNL/NPL clubs a run for the win in showcase events. Therefore wether you are town, club etc...the goal is top brackets at elite events. Tourney, national league events should provide an avnue for all our girls.

I you stand out, they will find you.

think they'll be fine with the ECNL.
Imagine them in a league with SJEB-
playing the likes of real, holmdel, NJ stallions stronghold,brick, FH- would that be a developmental oppourtunity or setback?
Why is SJEB so elite, because it's in their name?
& they beat PDA 1-0 back in early spring.
They had a chance to go to national playoff in a league they signed up for & competed in & won, but gave up the spot.

Anonymous said...

11:01 if you are going to go down that route... Splash automatically qualified for the US Club National Cup by winning the US Club State Cup this Spring.

Winners of all Super Groups U13-U17 qualify and winners of the 6 US Club Regional tournaments qualify.

Splash didn't take their spot. They could have played :

Jacksonville #4 FL
FC Pride #1 IN (Champions) (State Champions Indiana)
St Louis Scott Gallagher ECNL #2 IL
FC Leahi #1 HI (State Champions Hawaii)
Virginia Rush ECNL

Remember this before you try and start something about SJEB.

You are not getting it...

we all know pda splash is a quality team, I always said win /lose by 1-2 goals you are in the right place for development, if more or less.. move up/down in competition. Believe it or not you learn more from making mistakes, failing and being challenged. Basically your paying for wins not development. If you believe in the league if your kid was on one of the teams in the bottom of the standings would you move her?

You can't judge quality of competition by scores. Just because they happened to get some good results doesn't mean they are in the wrong place. They played three of the best teams in this half of the country and had great success. It doesn't mean the games weren't highly competitive.

Anonymous said...

Post 11:56, you are not getting it. You argue PDA ducks top competition, like Jeff Cup and WAGS BUT they win the NJ Spring State Cup, AGAIN, then run the table at Eclipse and beat Tophat (won WAGS and PDA Spring Kickoff), GSA (won Jeff Cup) and CUP Gold (Jeff Cup semi-finalist). Sorry they beat top teams in the country by more than 1 or two goals but last time I checked good teams take advantage and put teams away when they have a chance. Since you are the expert on good competition, please tell PDA where they should play to better challenge themselves.

8:53 a tournament in earl August cannot be considered full-strength. Many teams will have players away on vacation before the real fall season starts.

PDA should do tournament IN-SEASON and see how they fare if they want to prove us all wrong.

But Jeff cup the 2nd week in March after long winter is in-season, got it. Your jealousy is not becoming. Just congratulate a good team on a great result and focus on your daughter's team.

Seriously, why do you care so much what PDA does? They win so good for them. If your daughters team wins, good for her team too. Move on already. Good job PDA and good luck to the rest (except when we play you) at Spirit.

LOL -8:58.

I got a good chuckle out of that one.

When ever the season starts for these ECNL teams- which in Chicago, there were many, everyone reports for duty. There is no wait a minute, I'm on vacation that week.

If you don't show up,- don't come come back. unless of course it was cleared with coach long before.

LOL 8 :58 that was a good one!

9:02 Jeff Cup is 2 weeks after Manhattan... which Splash were actually going to play if it wasn't cancelled.

So yes, Jeff Cup is in season and is one of the best girls tournaments in the country. Splash NEVER go there. Why?

Anonymous said...

What do you mean? Don't tell me ECNL doesn't give out participation trophies either!
Heck, even the NPL squads demand soccer as the top priority - or at least the successful ones do. Basketball, softball, and lacrosse commitments aren't allowed to interfere much less personal time.

Anonymous said...

Can't play in every tournament. Remember they are 13 and 14 year olds. I want my daughter to continue to love the game, not get worn out by 15.

The excuses are classic, PDA does not win, its because they are over-rated, they do win its because the tournament is bad or they did not win by enough or oh, they win by too much and should play better tournaments. I have a hard time keeping up but I am sure you will come up with another classic to explain their next victory. Be happy that you can say that your daughter's team played well/beat a very good team in Splash that does well on the national stage. That actually makes your daughter's teams perfomance all the more impressive. I wish all of the girls luck, you parent's, not so much.

Nobody ever answered the question a few weeks back if SJEB U14 ever scrimmages their U15 team, and if so, how they do against them.

Splash beat their older team earlier this summer. You know, when they were ducking their own age group! hahaha!!

The top teams at Spirit are already on Splash's ECNL fall schedule.

In pre-ECNL, they tied one and beat the rest last season.

Why do they need to play them all again at Spirit?

Anonymous said...

How have the NJ teams done at Jeff Cup, Spirit, Delco?

For the most part, they all stink it up, year after year!

Two of your best teams don't even exist anymore-Americans and Force, and STA is a shell of their former team.

You should be thankful you have a team like Splash to represent NJ. So come on, give 'em the love they deserve.

Anonymous said...

It's jealousy wether they admit it or not. There is no other reason to criticize a teams success. Why not say congratulations? I say it and cringe if I see them on the schedule knowing how difficult a task it is to play them. They are very talented and deserve congratulations for all their success. They just need to learn how to lose gracefully when the rare loss or tie occurs.

Are you all nuts. PDA is the top team in NJ. No if ands or buts about it.

So they go out to Chicago and dominate some of the best teams in the country. Why would anyone say anything but positive things about those results? I don't believe that anyone with any sense would show anything but appreciation for the team and how they represented the NJ area.

At the end of the day, they have the players and talent. Whether they have developed them or not.

also, not saying that other teams in NJ can't compete with them, there is so much talent at this age group, it is great to see. So sit back and enjoy the upcoming season!

For the rest of you let the bullshit begin, can't wait to read your comments, rants, outrageous comments.

Anyone have any predictions for upcoming tournaments, Spirit, Stars of Mass, STA?

Good luck to all the players, I hope they stay healthy and have positive seasons!

How much does PDA pay you to sit on here and read and comment on this crap?

Anonymous said...

to 10:15 Yes the U14 SJEB girls have beaten the U15 team in practice games and in futsal leagues. The 15's have also won games against the U14's. I don't think it matters at all as you cant use how you play against someone else to guess the outcome against a different team.

This age group is loaded with great players playing on different teams in multiple leagues that it would be next to impossible to agree on a #1 team. (A fact this blog has proven already) What you can say is that based on the past and current records the PDA team would be the "Vegas" favorite to win against the rest of the NJ teams in a head to head match.

Anonymous said...

1138. You still haven't answered the question. Why can you not acknowledge Splash is successful and deserving of congratulations for their weekend performance? What team has displayed as much repeated success? Region champions, state champions . . . Nobody wins as much.

Anonymous said...

Vegas favorite by a lot. I bet if you ask the coaches in the age group who the best team is, they would overwhelmingly name Splash. Parents are delusional if they think otherwise. Splash is best in the State and everybody knows it deep down even if they argue against it. Ask your coach what they think - sure they'd like to play them, but ask what they think their chances are against them.

No one is saying that PDA is not a great team. Their record speaks for itself.

Anonymous said...

PDA is a great team under a proven framework, however to say they are the best in NJ that is stretching it a bit. We all know the powers that be, PDA org. Has alot of political power and influence about scheduling etc...Favorable schedules provide favorable outcomes. Therefore PDA as an organization is set up for their teams to succeed. Everything is in place for their teams to flourish because the odds are forever in their favor. As noted earlier, to say they are the best in NJ is not hard to believe because the numbers show it but have they played every top ten team in NJ to make that declaration a valid one, no.

Anonymous said...

You are paranoid, insane or both PDA as an organization dominated across the board in ECNL. They might not win every age, but are clearly the class of the field. They gather the best and get them to play together better than any other club. The other nj teams may play them tough occasionally, but they are not as good. There are a lot of contenders for second, but none are as good as Splash. SJEB is strong, but not better than Splash. Most others aren't even as good as them - Brick? Copa? No way. Who else is even given consideration for top flights? Nobody. We have played all four more than a time or two and Splash is way better - like it or not. Your team might be pretty darn good, but if you are not Splash, you are playing for second.

Hey 1:09. Get a job and stop worrying about youth soccer. Get your kid trained and maybe one day she can make an ecnl team. She obviously isn't there yet. Wow you have too much time on your hands now go make dinner and do the wash.

Anonymous said...

Yes definitely would choose to make dinner because their mentality would consider five star restaurants overrated or just politically connected. "They only serve the best food 98% of the time so I make better dinners"

Anonymous said...

Just a point of clarity...the tuition cost at PDA is NOT significantly higher than a C-level club team and pales in comparison to the cost of MF and other similar clubs who roster 30 kids. PDA rosters less than 20 - so it's not really about the money. It's about developing talent and winning national championships, something no other NJ team will ever know anything about.

Splash played very tough, top competition at Eclipse and they won big. They were undefeated in pre-ECNL play this Spring and you can expect that to continue. The depth of talent on the team is unmatched. Don't hate - congratulate!

Anonymous said...

Here we go again with the whole PDA rules NJ argument. Again, you cannot fairly compare PDA to 95% of the other teams mentioned. They ARE a regional all-star team. You can argue all you want, it is what it is. That being said, they should NEVER lose to the SJEBs, Bricks, IGFAs, etc, etc. And have they? YES, they have! For what parents pay, and for what the expectations are (at this age group anyway) they are NOT all they're cracked up to be, and can be beat on any given day by the above teams and more. That's just the way it is.

Anonymous said...


Any team can be beat on any given day. Especially amongst the teams in this age group.

How about some predictions:

spirit:

Championship:
SJEB/FC Virginia/Delco/Premier

Virginia or Premier win final.

Elite:
Rush/LVU/Real/Studdert

Rush or Stoddert win Final

Platinum

Carlisle/HFC/Hulmeville/ISA

ISA wins Final

Vernon/CASA/Souderton/Wall

Vernon or Wall win Final

There it is, you people never let us down. Additional reasons for Splash success:
1) Scheduling (really, this is what you are leading with?)
2) Lucky goals (a lot of lucky goals to win every state cup they entered but 1)
3) Only win games by 1 goal (like saying you only won the super bowl by 1 pt, who remembers the loser?)
Keep them coming, I know you have more in you.

Who cares about PDA, now at this point your daughter will not get to play against that team, unless she plays on another ECNL team in the same age group, or she plays for one of the other PDA teams for the age group. So why don't we take the discussion away from ECNL. There are only about 50 - 60 players in this age group from NJ playing on these teams. Personally would rather focus on the other 99% of teams.

Good Luck to PDA Splash, and I hope you represent NJ well in ECNL and national tournaments

I have to admit the three team run over two days against GSA, Tophat, and Cup Crew is VERY impressive and I don't think there is another team in this region that could have pulled that off. Win any one of those games, many teams. All three? I believe only PDA would be capable of that.
Having said that, I agree with 5:56that PDA should only be part of an ecnl blog discussion and not this one. Let's have them to stay with the 1% on another blog and let's keep the talk here about U14 NJ soccer, which is mostly non-ecnl.

Anonymous said...

The reason it is so easy to bash on PDA is the because the arguments in support of them, by the parents drinking their cool aid, are ridiculous. Are they the best team in the state, absolutely, the ECNL TEAMS, but they would probably be equally as successful if coached by most of the coaches who coach the teams that you compare them to. He'll most of the PDA parents could probably coach a team of the 20 best soccer players in the state and have success.

My problem with PDA IS Not their ECNL teams, there is no argument they are the top in their respective age groups. My problem is when they go to 2,3 and sometimes even four teams in an age group and promise the parents and players college exposure and the dream of a scholarship just because they have a PDA blue shirt on. Other than their ECNL teams, the other PDA teams are beaten regularly by town teams and second tier academy teams.

If they stuck to one team in an age group, the psycho parents would stop chasing the dream and leaving these other teams to go to PDA and maybe we would have more competitive teams. they are not a " developmental" academy, everyone knows they are not developing from wiithin, they simply look to take the next best player from another club so why have the other PDA teams. Just ask the older teams how many players from within have moved up to the ECNL teams v players that were taken from other clubs instead.

So when people, at least me, say PDA is a money grab they are referring to the fact that after their ECNL teams you are wasting money going there. If you aren't making the ECNL team stay put and save your time and money.

Anonymous said...

7:16 You make me laugh first you say

"the other PDA teams are beaten regularly by town teams and second tier academy teams"

Which means they are playing at their level.

Then you say

"they are not a " developmental" academy,"

SO if the players are getting beat by town teams what do you want PDA to do with these teams? Turn them into National champions overnight? Didn't know Development happens so quickly.

You also said
"My problem with PDA IS Not their ECNL teams,"
Isn't this where development is accelerated because of the talent on the field. You put good coaches in place to train girls in an environment that attracts girls with dreams of being the best.

In Conclusion, you said
"If you aren't making the ECNL team stay put and save your time and money." Okay that's what you will do. But their 2nd Teams are playing in a NPL league which rewards their champion with a trip to a National Event same as NYCSL NPL and EDL NPL which are A teams for those clubs.

SO besides your obvious hate/envy of PDA are you trying to get players from these B teams to leave and come fill some holes for your team? Looks like it.

Your only problem with your argument is that you take the parents of these kids as fools and insecure. SO let's go on an Anonymous board bad mouth their teams and they will leave - sort of something like "if you build it they will come". SO you try the if you bash them they will leave and they will come"

Not saying that's what you are doing - but that's how it comes across and if I had better writing skills - maybe it would flow a little better.

6:36 I don't buy your argument - there is always pressure for these kids to perform. They are playing for the love and to be the best but don't for one second think that parents aren't making sure they understand what's at stake for them to stick with these teams. There will always players trying to take their spots so imagine being so young playing something you love so much with all that pressure on you - builds some strong character for the kids that stick and for the kids on the B teams they know exactly what they want imagine the pressure they have to improve overnight because people on an anonymous board are saying their parents are wasting their money for them to play where they want to be good job 7:16. As long as these kids want to play for PDA the parents will pay - so stop the Hate and comparing your program to PDA and talk soccer or Not

Anonymous said...

You will soon find out that as the girls get older, teams fold and the remaining teams are not that good. The better players have very little options and that is why PDA becomes one. Understand the landscape better and you wont sound so naive.

But sorry for the annoyance.

Anonymous said...

Stop the PDA nonsense. It would be a disaster if we start believe that the "only" team is the way to go. Diversity, different styles, commitment, strength of the team, history, style, coach, and many more factors make a team the best team. These factors change from time to time, year to year. You can get consistent results but they don't guarantee a trophy or championship. Therefore, we can't declare any team at this age and without a time frame as THE TEAM.

If you look at the results in this spring, PDA Splash won by only one goal against much smaller clubs and weaker teams. Loosing in their own tournament confirms what has been stated so far. So, good luck PDA, yes, you have great results (now). The same to COPA, and many other teams. Be ready, however, to hit an opponent who will surprise you - of course not by the name but by its play.

Anonymous said...

7:16. As the others have said a lot holes on those concepts.
I can t believe they are promising this or that, they may tease you with a chance to make the top team, and exposure to college coaches ... But please now moving on to U 14, as parents, 4-5 yrs in youth soccer and, if you still don t understand the landscape, the options and the realities of your kids athletic abilities and motivation. Shame on you, don t blame the clubs , coaches, trainers, who you chose to give your money to for your players shortcomings. Pay yor town club dues , let your kid have their fun and if they are good enough you just have to work harder to get her that exposure.
My disclaimer--this not the blog to educate or get educated on the topic.

Your math is very subjective. PDA Splash got almost 10,000 points from the per-fabricated and completely ridiculous state cup path in which they did not play one top team.

They play their own in which they played SJEB, and what happen?

Don't be ridiculous.

Yes, Splash would probably have more points. On the other hand, they would probably have more loses to real teams.

Anonymous said...

okay enough has been said on Team A is better then B,C,D & E. If we all want our girls to be better players how do we get US Soccer to ensure the coaches and trainers are providing quality training sessions for them. We did not go back to NJ ODP this year because the level of training was very poor. I'm also seeing that the coach to player ratio is 1 to 18 now so the individual skills are not being corrected as the coaches miss the errors or don't have time to correct.

COPA-lost to PDA South in first round
Freehold-lost to Real NJ

Not Splash's fault these teams could not advance to face them.

Pre-fabricated state cup? The only reason splash played what you call weak teams is because sjeb and your other top 5 could not win a game to get to the splash. They were there and played who showed up, and beat them all, that is how you win a state cup, but you would not know anything about that.

pre-fabricated path, not state cup.

And yes, just look at who was in the path up to the final...

History has proven that the SJEB club teams starting at u14 cannot come close to competing with any ecnl PDA team at any age group.

What makes you think that this SJEB won't suffer the same fate.

Take your bickering to twitter sound like a bunch old hags playing bingo. They are all about even give or take some errors due to development and maybe one or two players in rotation. I have seen all of the above teams play and difference is in the color of the uniform. I bet if they all played without uniforms it will be impossible to tell who plays for who. Altruism at its best. Come on dads stop the bitching and talk about some real soccer subjects. Points don't mount to a hill of beans.

another ECNL club coming to NJ real soon

Anonymous said...

which club is going to be ECNL?

Anonymous said...

If that is true then the league will begin its path to failure. Dilute the talent pool and water down the level of play. The grand plan is no longer genuine and becomes just another money grab.
Leave the top of the pyramid alone. Let NPL add maybe two or three more and then establish the next level's basis which would include some town teams that are up to the level of play required.
It would also be good to have npl, state champs and ECNL have some crossover tournament for overall us club title.

PA has three ECNL clubs in close proximity, why shouldn't NJ?

There is plenty of talent to make another competitive team.

Anonymous said...

Doesnt matter - the better teams play the ECNL clubs anyway.....

Anonymous said...

Great, competition is always good to challenge competitive environment. Also, many great talents can't get the right environment because there is only a limited spots available for the best team. Another 1-2 ECNL clubs relatively close to each other would open opportunities for many more talented girls. It would also create a healthy pressure on PDA and prevent a groupthink of a stagnation.

Are there any details about the new club? (location, name, etc..)

Anonymous said...

18/21 rostered U20 WNT players from ecnl teams. When looking for top talent it all starts there and everyone else gets to fill in the rosters. Watered down by adding more clubs? Maybe but most people only care about the showcase events and the nationals, not the bottom feeders in each division. If you happen to be with a club that is consistently present at the top level of these events, huge advantage over everyone else.
Match Fit and WC need to play catch up to be relevant. If not, they're just helping fit the bill.

Anonymous said...

ECNL teams have top players. This has never been refuted.

Anonymous said...

PA has 3 ECNL teams within 1 hour driving distance, NJ has 2 up north.
I'm assuming a club from Central or South Jersey will jump into ECNL soon to help geographically align league play with PA and North Jersey.
Only 2 come in mind - NJ Rush & SJEB.

Do they have facilities?

Anonymous said...

As long as the teams have adequent time at indoor facilties then they are in good standing order I thought. Penn Fusion, FC Delco, FC Bucks all use 2nd party facilities to my understaning.
SJEB uses a faciltiy further south and NJ Rush uses facilities somewhere centrally.

BTW,
yes the Stallions did take the American's rankings....#3 in NJ, what a joke. Last points were for #2 in Region 1 Premier League, funny I thought they couldn't even get out of their own way in the Colonial league. Even if you go to an old American result and click on the team it will being you to the Stallions page.

Shows what a joke got soccer is. I could see if the Americans switched clubs the points would follow. But to have some of the team go to a new club and that clubs gets the points is a disgrace. That team doesn't even be long in the top ten.

Maybe they are the new ECNL. Already in NPL so accepted as club with teams at all ages and someone pointed out their older girls won the npl title so . . .

Let the outrage ensue.

Americans did switch clubs

That is what NJ Stallions does

Took 2 entire Crush teams a couple years back.

Dont you want an accurate assessment? Dont you want to be awarded proper points when you play/beat Stallions?

Anonymous said...

The stallions will get crushed in the beginning till their chemistry takes off. They do have Americans on roster but it will take time to gel. Easy pickings for teams scheduled to play them in the fall. Victory points, points for beating a state champs...lol.let's pass them around so we can all get our rocks off.

Ten girls joined Stallions from Americans. So they get the points because the roster is 51% Americans.
The Stallions were are joke of a team so is the coach. Remember you still have almost have the team that could not win a flight 5 game. So good luck in flight 1 you will need it. And no one will ever call you State Cup Champs till you win one.

Anonymous said...

Thats how it happens

Yeah - americans pretty much became Stallions

I dont know if they will parenthesize it (formerly......)

You would need to ask gotsoccer what rationale they use for the point shift. I'd think 10 players would qualify

Doesnt matter - they have to earn the points back anyway

again most of us would hope so, looking for " meaningful" games, unlike this blogs bashers, obsessed with GS rankings and points. have they deprived your team of an opportunity

Wow I guess PDA have the Stallions to thank for shifting the bashing focus away from them. Reading through the above posts it is clear there are some folks who have an axe to grind with the Stallions and/or SC. Please remember that your comments are directed towards 13 yr old girls. That comment about "passing them around so we could all get our rocks off." Seriously? How were you possibly allowed to procreate? If gotsoccer gave out points to low life degenerates you would be tops in the nation.

Sta has trouble competing in a very weak NY NPL league as a club. They would struggle at multiple age levels in ECNL. U14 team is not what it use to be. Struggled against low to mid level teams after kids left last year.

4:56 Stallions are a NPL team and they finished in last place in their NPL Flight. Why would they be placed in the top flight?

FC Stars is a US Club Soccer Club - I would imagine ECNL and NPL league play a big part when it comes to Flight.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Anonymous said...

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

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

Anonymous said...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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