Not believable. Copa didnt write that, they are busy fixing their team and No one would be dumb enough to write that. Enough already, just stop, no one believes it is Copa.

Hamilton plays football not soccer. They constantly take girls out in every game they play. And if you play them on their fields the refs call Nothing.

copa will win edp league

Anonymous said...

Refs are scheduled by an assignor and randomly done, so your assumption that they get special treatment is nothing more than sour grapes.

Anonymous said...

Doesn't sound like sour grapes from Brick as they stated Rush did what they needed to do to win & whether it's pretty or not it's just about moving on anyway possible which is what it sounds like they did.

Let's hope brick learns from gfa,freehold,copa,Jackson and the rest of the so called top teams,just let the kids play and you stay off the blog...

Two things after reading through the comments today.

1. It's not the referee's fault. You don't know what bad refereeing looks like. I've been coaching for 30+ years. If you think it's bad now, your head would've exploded back in the day.

2. It's still "youth" soccer. Children playing an adult game. Everything is about to change in the next 2 years. U16 soccer is a completely different game. Speed and strength are supplanted by skill and brains. Many posters here are in for a rude awakening.

You're comparing apples and watermelons. Brick parents aren't arrogant and delusional. They come here to defend their children and their team, that's all.

Anonymous said...

Hey, you can't win them all unfortunately. Brick just came off of a big EDP Cup win, and the EDP title is still up for grabs. They're not going anywhere. Rush got the better of them on one night, unfortunately it was a big night. Great job by the Rush girls! Refs, bad calls, irregardless...you can't discount that the Rush girls played a hell of an aggressive, hungry game.

Arrogant to say the least. I'm 40+ years old, and I know EXACTLY what bad refereeing looks like. It certainly happened last night, and unfortunately at this level, it happens way too often. These guys/gals are either flat out afraid to make a game affecting call (right or wrong) or the other side of it is they are huge ego maniacs that absolutely MUST decide the outcome of a game. I've seen both way too often. And I must say, I do NOT remember refs being this bad "back in the day", like when I was playing.

Anonymous said...

You all make me laugh. If they didnt make the call you would say how great it was that the ref let play go on. BUT because it went against you the ref was horrible. Act like an adult and try, just try to watch a game without a rooting interest. Really the way to do it.

Refs, thank you for your time. Without you NONE of this would be possible. Yes you will make mistakes, you are not MLS refs are you? Again, give them a break, they are doing their best I am sure.

The NJ Rush vs Brick game was a great game on both sides. Our girls probably won most of the balls in the middle of the field and probably Brick controlled the ball a little more than us. It was a physical game played by both sides as it always has been whenever we played Brick. Where there questionable calls? Yes, on both sides of the ball against both teams. The game could've gone either way. But one thing that put us over the top is how our girls respond to our coach. Our girls believe in our coaches and love the positive reinforcement, the feeling that every single player on our team is equally important. And it showed in the way our girls played. Congrats to Brick for a hard fought game but especially to our girls who continue to make us proud!!

Anonymous said...

Please Rush parent! Your team is one of the dirtiest teams out there. And as soon as a team gives it back you are a bunch of cry babies....

Anonymous said...

9:25 it was a 2-0 hbc lead with hbc missing 3 starting players when the 4th starter left the game it became 2-1. Unfortunately 10 minutes into the 2nd half 2 starting center defenders went down making it a total of 6 starters out of the game. The igfa girls play very nice soccer and are a very good team. I don't believe thers are many teams out there that can play with that many players out. Look forward to playing again.

I just vomited in my mouth. Come on mom give it a rest. "Make us proud". I live 100miles away. I've never heard of these teams till I read this blog. Outside of Nj know one knows or cares who you are. Perhaps eventually we will meet. Idk. But you guys need your own blog away from the rest of us grounded in reality. You could call it NJ soccer drama. Bash each other all day. And realize know one cares. I doubt anyone has ever said oh God we are in Bricks bracket or Copas bracket. My older daughter did play against Brick one year at Delco. The Copa team had like 8 billion points and was very highly ranked. They couldn't get the ball across midfield against my daughters team. Whom I consider decent but not awesome. Another case of NJ GS Hype. Try holding and intelligent soccer conversation please.

If your going to comment minute for minute about the IGFA and HBC game you shouldn't leave out a key factor "the wind factor" both goals that where scored by HBC where with the wind at there backs IGFA scored one goal in the first half against the wind the only goal the entire game that was against the wind. Once HBC had to go against the wind they might have had two shots on goal the entire second half. IGFA also has starters injured!

7:03 ...although everyone knows being down players is a handicap. you will get no sympthy on this blog. that is the life of a soocer team.

These parents want to win so badly and brag about it.

You could play with 8 field players and they will say- well "all teams have that problem" just to credit for the win. In reality major players being out for any team changes the strength of that team. but no one will acknowledge it here.


Next time postpone the game )if you can, if not , then the result is the result.

Censorship at it's finest. It's obvious that some teams are getting preferential treatment. IE: The negative Brick comments are still here, but the Copa ones mysteriously disappear. Balance please. Start erasing any and all bashing comments. But, you're too lazy for that.

"Outside of Nj know one knows or cares who you are".

In the tri-state area, They most certainly know. Don't care if they care.

"I doubt anyone has ever said oh God we are in Bricks bracket"

They most certainly have

" My older daughter did play against Brick one year at Delco."

And your point?

" I live 100 miles away."
Again, you're point? If you don't like the posts here, don't read. Simple

Anonymous said...

I'm definitely in the area. Have no clue who you are. Just looked Brick up on Gotsoccer. Your in a dome. Other then JCup you don't travel very far. You would have an avg amount of points if it wasn't for EDP holding for 2 yrs instead of 1 like everything else. And you win 38% of your games. Which is not good.
If your a Copa parent same thing except for you win 52%. Still not a good winning percentage. Still in a bubble. You guys all play the same teams over and over. You hype about the same tournaments every year. You get tons of points from them. Yet when you actually go to a Casl, Disney, Chicago or Atlanta you do nothing. Calm down the chest bumping and realize your child/teams abilities. Be thankful they have a good team in your eyes. In 2 years the landscape changes. You'll go to showcases. Nobody will care about u14.

Anonymous said...

Checking Gotsoccer is research? LOL! That "38%" you speak of is about two years old. Check the recent record. Gotsoccer is terrible at updating. Also just won the EDP Cup, which of course is not there yet. So, if you're so concerned with gotsoccer points, not to worry, you'll always see that one team at or near the top that hasn't changed in 5 years. Do some real research.

Anonymous said...

38% is for the last year so it can't be that old. Your points and scores drop off after 1 year except for EDP. Hopefully your just a troll. Nobody is that stupid. And as for EDP cup it was your typical teams within your dome. The closest you've come to playing outside your dome was Premier Strikers at Spirit. They beat you 3-0.

Again, gotsoccer rankings are skewed. Brick has 28 wins, 13 ties, and 9 losses in it's last 50 games on gotsoccer. Hardly 38%. That record is against all the so called top teams in the area. They play no give me games. Dome? Really? They've probably played more long distance teams than most town teams could probably dream of, so stop being ridiculous. EDP Cup has just been added, so now they are #3 in the state. Just recently tied and beat the #1 team in SJEB. And as far as #2 PDA, have they even won a game yet this season? They're certainly not undefeated like their jaded gotsoccer record shows. Either you want to use gotsoccer as the be all end all of quality teams, or you don't. Can't have it both ways. You bring up one game against one team in Premier Strikers...score one for you! They play each other in EDP soon, so we'll see.

GS points or Top drawer soccer rankings.
Both systems are flawed to the point that none of us should use them as a yard stick. TDS shows the Boston Breakers and FC Bucks as the current highest ranking teams from region 1. GS has them 20th and 72th in region 1.

Don't pay attention to GS points. Pay attention to GS winning percentage and games played. Nj teams play 40+ games to get 15-25k points. They play each other nonstop to build PTA all while winning a low percentage of games. There is teams with similar or slightly less points who only play 20-25 games and win a high percentage.

Anonymous said...

TDS idea's are good ones by ranking the teams on the current season and how they are doing right now. True it might be only against other ECNL teams. But it is up to date.
All other TOP 25 lists use current info to stack rank (High schools Colleges and Pro's) Why cant GS just reduce its roll over to 6 months for State and Region. Then run a 12 month ranking for national.

Why play nine light years away to develop players? The crack pipe dwellers chase tournaments like many others chase GS points. TDS, NPL,ECNL, EDP TOP DRAWER are part of a micro-economy. As long as the competition is good who cares. It has been mentioned over and over again. Soccer is not the one all be all. Academics first and soccer supplements the pathway. So many caught up in the bs is pathetic. Traveling to Florida or Cali does not mean your better ..it just means you have credit.

Brick is U-14 so not sure why there would be college placement for this team? Brick the overall club has all low level teams that play in a local league. You don't see them anywhere other then this Brick team.

Oh my God you are all so pathetic! It is a game being played by teenagers - mostly middle school girls. You all act like its World Cup and you are personally playing - you are not. It is a team of young girls playing a game for fun. This is not a job and it is not your team - take up golf or tennis and get your competitive energies out there instead. Enjoy the game and your little girls before she flies away.

Brick, We all know you chase points, no big deal... I disagree with their scoring system but got soccer is the measurement we have.
You went to FC Stars against very little competition there, you were in one level below Premiership Blue, that being the Premiership White, bracket A you won one game and that was against NJ Crush, came in third place out of four teams in the bracket, and still you received 1632 points. I do not believe you beat a higher rated team.
It is clear that I just do not understand the way points are awarded or there was an error in the posting of the points
Results From FC Stars:
W D L points
1.World Class (NYE) 3 2 1 7 Champs Awarded 7642 points

2.N.H. Park Firecats (NYE)
(NYE) 2 1 0 7
Semi’s Awarded 1432 points

3.Brick 1 0 2 7
(NJ) Semi's Awarded 1632 points

4.Crush 0 0 3 0

Still not sure what your definition of chasing points are or what your obsession with Brick is but my definition is going in every low level tournament you can to get as many points possible against low level teams which isn't the case with Brick. I also can look up the Stars tournament & since they don't use a semi-final format the brackets really group all 8 teams together so out of 8 teams Brick was 4th since they were 1 of 4 teams to register a win in their 3 games making then elgible for Got Soccer semi-final points. You don't have to agree with it as I'm not sure I do as well but that is the system which you cannot fault a team & expect what that they refuse the points? Without the points it does what keep them out of top tournaments & top flights? Whether you like them or not which clearly you are fascinated with them as you spend time looking up what they do at a tournament you clearly weren't at it maybe couldn't get into they are a good team that has proven that for years & even with every year "this is their last year" they still remain a top NJ team despite all the people that wish they wouldn't be. I can never understand the amount of jealousy NJ has towards it's teams as 1st it was PDA this & that or Copa isn't good & now it's this fixation on a town team that always does well against only good competition. You people really need a constructive hobby. Since you have so much free time come over & paint my house & now my lawn.

FC Stars - Brick - points

Brick came in third in bracket but had same points as second place team in other bracket.

It also had the tiebreak over that team

This 3 teams in bracket 1 got points, just 1 in bracket 2.

3rd and 4th place teams in fields of 8 get semifinals points, roughly 1/4 available, adjusted somewhat depending on points brought in.

3rd place team NHP likely got less points since they brought more points in. (roughly 15000 to 13000)

Hope this helps

I don't think anyone is jealous. I'm sure as a parent we I would be happy if my daughter was on a little known team who was having some success. I doubt I would be pounding my chest quite like some of these parents. As I have older daughters I know u14 success can be very temporary. Especially for a small club team. They rarely last. That is why you hear of so view having success past u14 or u15. All teams have then over. But small clubs don't normally have continued success once in counts. U16 and above. Now all the girls are the same size. The "premier" teams will pick up a new player or 2 every year. They will come from those small club teams. Your success will drop. You may be the first to pull it off. My older daughter thought the same. I believed it. Now she is at a big club. Just the way it goes. Enjoy your success. Know that in 2 years things will look different.

Anonymous said...

I have to be honest we've had our team mentioned on here in the past but I can tell you we don't think about what's going on at another team or take the time to look up how many points they got at a tournament because it has nothing to do with us but it appears a lot of people are really fixated on teams their children don't even play on which is quite disturbing to me. We know who the good teams are & which ones are a step below but don't begrudge them if they have success we just hope it's not against us but if people put this much energy into something worthwhile then the world would be a better place. Think about it.

1) one girl was in the national pool prior to ecnl, sjeb; therefore 1 from ecnl & 1 from non ecnl.
2) based on 2 for nj girls, your chances of making the national pool the same ecnl or not. So you daughter is done.
3) if you are good they will find you
4) if you not id'ed by now (not in the regional pool min) you are already passed over ecnl or not; so keep paying ecnl $$$ for no roi.
5) Time to tell your daughter her soccer career is over

You should take a look at how many NJ girls are on the actual team.


This is the replenishment of the pool after girls have been chosen for the team.

You will need to add a few more NJ girls. All from the ECNL.

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.

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.

As long as I have been coming to this blog I don't remember BlueBlaze/Stallions ever coming on here with a negative post.
In fact, it would be a good idea if everyone would follow suit.
Stallions won the State Cup let them enjoy their win.
Congratulations Stallions!

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?

Yeah, right.

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.

Anonymous said...

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?

Anonymous said...

ECNL is a league;

Do you want to come play Penn fusion Breakers or stars of mass?

Perhaps you would like to through your hat in the ring and ask San Diego Surf .

Best league in the country. top clubs-perhaps you can let us all know what club you are from?

No ? Thought so. Now good put on your big boy pants and move along!

we would love to play these teams (and did play some mentioned) and yours too, lets set it up you know who we are,,oh your coach will not let you in-case you lose.... you are not competitive in your league anymore,, if this was real top level soccer your team would be relegated after the season

Anonymous said...

if your kid is 3-30 she is as good (or not as good) then top kids from edp & just a check to ecnl teams, sorry dad face it,

the top 25 kids from edp would destroy pda or mf if they played each other, now that would be true development! Not sure why pda of mf would not want this to happen?? maybe lost of $$ & the illusion??

3:44 you can go on the ECNL web site and look at the entire league standings. ECNL doesn't go by GS points.

Ecnl does not do GS...because they feel as though it is necessary but in actuality it will hurt their illusion of being tops...BTW PDA/MF DO NOT compare or state that your are far better..becausecniether team has top players they are spread amongst the other top ten in NJ. 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.

Great game FH,showed you belong

Lets do edp nj all-star vs ecnl pda or mf or ecnl pda/mf all-star .. lets break this illusion horse.. bloggers vote who would win??? my vote Edp much more talented would beat either or .. encl come out and play we challenge you ... are you scared?...

Anonymous said...

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.

Edp nj all star .... Def winner lol

Quote directly from a ECNL coach.
"Its all a business and the parents are delusional because they think there kids will get full rides, but at least i get a decent paycheck"
Less then 1% will get a full ride and less then 1/3 of a % will play at a pro level.
Good luck to those believers hopefully you arent selling the farm to pay for what will most likly be a disappointment.

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

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..

Anonymous said...

we want to play the top teams,thats what you say!!then why skip Bethesda?6ECNL teams playing there!!Because you would never make top bracket,so go chase points and you can be top dog at your level!!!

9:38 and 9:45.. whatever makes you sleep at night.


I guess a significant number of D! players coming out of the ECNL is also a conspiracy.


You guys are funny.


EDP is a good league. Stop all the chest pumping.

ECNl is not worried about you. why are you so fixated on the ECNL

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

Just frustrated that it attracted a strong player from my kid's team. Not the best player but a good one. I think they left a great situation for an inferior one in many ways but to each their own.

1 girl from each ecnl team makes the national pool ..."why" to give false hope to the rest of the ecnl suckers..edp girls would crush pda & mf, any parent to think otherwise is delusional. This is why edp girls will be replacing your kids @ u 15

I see. ECNL no good until the EDP girls get here.

Then its a great league. LOL

Your jealousy about the league drips from the page.

Good luck to your daughter, I guess we'll be seeing her with a number in Spring at tryouts.

The best player on my kids team did not go ecnl so if I want my kid playing with the best I better leave her be.

If I want her play with the second best, she can follow her team mate that made ecnl team.

Yes -please do follow that sample size.

You are wise beyond your years.

Your child is lucky to have such a wise man looking after her. Keep making those decisions.

There are hundreds of teenage teams in NJ. My situation is not unique. Talent plays in ENCL and plenty of talent plays out side of it. Good luck to your kid and enjoy.

News flash...Freehold eeking out a tie against Brick does not mean they "belong". But, like Journey says, "Don't Stop Believin'!"

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

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

Really, what teams in the EDP have studs?

Just go to exit 88 so many studs there,just ask them!!!!
By the way you have a losing record in the weak side of EDP

Never talk about specific players on a blog.

This is silly. Lots of good players in ecnl. Obviously not all.

All the teams in the 1st level of edp has 1-3 girls who can play ecnl..some teams more, probably more in the lower ones as well

ask your coach to play us, encl concept in theory is good, it is the encl parents who are delusional & are a fault in the system

if the idea of having competitive practice with the best player playing on game day, why not test this to see if the pda & mf team actually have the best players?.. set up a game against the edp all-star team, walk the talk

Already addressed, Brick is 28-14-9 in their last 51 games. hardly 38%. Add up all the games yourself, they're right there on your broken gotsoccer site.

Please don't put Copa in top 5,they lost there best player to ECNL and have not won a game since.

How's MF and PDA against nonecnl jersey teams? Have they played any EDP teams in the top 5 within the last year to compare?

Anonymous said...

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.

5. If you are truly handicapped you can go to right hand corner of your internet browser,click on the gear just below the X. The box will open and you will see Zoom,click on zoom, and you can enlarge you fonts all the up to 400%.

Hey genius, try manually adding up wins, losses, and ties. It's not difficult. 19-17-14 is NOT updated or correct.

OK, from August til now they are 14-5-6 so he's still wrong.

The girls are 13 and 14. They are not comparing stats with eachother- the pathetic parents are. Stats are never accurate especially of those tournament point chasers. Next year starts to make a difference. College showcases- your daughters performance and skill is what will stand out not just her ecnl or edp status. Point well made- there are girls playing edp that are better than the ecnl bench warmers. $

So...8:49 PM
What you are saying 19+17+14 doesn't come up to 50 games?
And GotSoccer has your record incorrect!
You claim 51 games with a record of 28-14-9....Please show us.
Where is that posted ?
I'm from Missouri...the show me state!
How about we all meet somewhere and you can pick us up in your little clown car, we can all pour in, and settle this dispute.

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.

Please tell me about ODP, kids from my sons U10 team are attempting this? Yes, my daughter is U14 EDP player, hence I read, I posted earlier. All this fighting is silly, I know you all know about this, please help out a guy with U10 boys parents sending to ODP? too early, not worth the money, they are too young and delusional?? Especially since team plays MOSA

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

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.
