Hey a win, is a win, is a win. Or some very bad losing.It's all worth the games/madess....right?
1:47PM has it right - a lot of options, no need to stress over the "label", so long as your kid is enjoying it and is getting the development needed. Which seriously, would happen almost by osmosis...there's a false belief that somehow a "better" coach / trainer will accelerate development.Consider the bell-shaped curve and the areas of development (tactical, technical, physical, psychological). Few coaches will excel in all areas, but the kid will develop. Sure, there are a lot of looney tunes in this game, but there are also some good folks that will do right by the kid.End of the day, few - if any - get scholarships. It's more about building relationships, learning life lessons, and having fun.
There was a kid that originally played on the Jackson Sharks, went to NJ Force, then to the Brick Fury (no names need to be mentioned). Did that kid make the move to Wildcats or go elsewhere?
PDA Shore I believe.
Thanks - are they formally a team or just in the process of being formed? I believe the latter, but wasn't sure.
Seen them play over the weekend. Team needs another 6 players to be able to compete at even the level Brick was competing.
8:09 did you play the WC's at the tournament? I've heard coaches use the word disgusting ; even pathetic. Sometimes you can't understand the coaches because of their accents. Point me in the direction of greener grass?
It was just pda teams.They didn't look good. 6 good players. Maybe they can recruit some players next year.
Don't hear the WC parents now....joke! Go from one mama coach to a arrogant one. Should have stayed with the mamas...
Just found out Old Bridge recently hired an ex Big 10 women's soccer coach. That may explain the sudden surge, should be interesting to watch.
they are ready to take on #1...call slick he will set it up...once he wakes up from the beat down...
Too much drama with the mama's. Mötley Crew.
Really NJX parents...Stay with the "Mama" coaches?? That is the reason you lost the majority of your best players and had to rebuild each year! Worse move by MT was bringing LC on to run the show. Only cares about her daughters and has them guest play all over the state with other teams. Joke! Hopefully your so called new coach will have them all off the coaching sideline!
It's very frustrating to constantly watch the coaches kid stay in and play every single game. Motley or not parents and players are looking forward to changes in command for that reason alone. Earn play time and rotate accordingly.
It is even more frustrating to have some players take two weeks off and miss a tournament and four practices straight and come back for the last tournament of the year and play almost the whole game while other kids who have attended every practice and scored and contributed to the team in the previous tournament SIT out for a whole half while Mia plays almost the whole game. The coach and parents can have the team, we are moving on!!
What happened to the NJ Wildcats U15G team. It seems like the points from the current u14 were given to the U15 team and the Brick Fury are now the U14 NPL team.Now what team is the NJ Wildcats Galaxy. Is this a new U15G or U16G team? What is going on over there?
Does NJCSA have any teams left? They had trouble fielding teams last year. Nobody wants to bring their child to such a Crazy situation. The coach is so bad and screams like a maniac to parents that parents and players from opposing teams sometimes feel sorry for the girls. Last place I would take my child to, not a healthy situation!! DON'T GO THERE!!
9:32 - from what school? Rutgers? News to me...
12:57 - yep, from Rutgers...former coach. Meh.
12:57 correct. May not be one of the best teams but moving up for sure
9:32 - Nice information. It is nice to see town teams moving up and doing it the right way. Getting in new players not because they are an academy, but because they are a good team.
Since when has there been an Old Bridge surge or getting better? They are still the same average team nowhere near the top level, just the same as they have been since U11.
Apparently you didn't move on because your still complaining.
Players will come and go. Drink the cool aid and think everything is fine and dandy. Until (rhymes with dandy) plays the ENTIRE game (among some chosen others) and parents realize the favortism and leave. If there was outcomes that justified leaving players in but if you look at the end if the season record and how it was a downward spiral, well all we can do is HOPE the " new" coach is coming and that it is not smoke being blown up the rear ends of those standing watching the mamas favs.
Yes, hoping the new coach will change things around a bit. That's if the old ones stay off the sideline. Only time will tell. It's HS season now so, need to focus there and have fun.
Only problem is, new coach has a reputation (as many do). Do a search, you'll find it. Overall, however, I think it's a good move - wish them luck.
My daughter is going to start with a new team in the shore area. How do I go about finding more about the coach and organization. We have been promised many things such our last team which promised high level tournaments and player development. We ended up playing in only 15 games and doing only two tournaments. I looked at comparable teams and everyone has done 30+ games plus futsal leagues, and winter training. I don't want to waste our time anymore. HELP
Sounds like your old coach was doing the best by your kid. US Soccer is trying to limit the amout of games at this age because of overuse. 15 per season (30 a year) is the best. 60+ games a year only gets you hurt.
What team?My daughter is going to start with a new team in the shore area. How do I go about finding more about the coach and organization. We have been promised many things such our last team which promised high level tournaments and player development. We ended up playing in only 15 games and doing only two tournaments.

Look up all the teams in a radius that you want to travel, look at their win ratio....not GS points; call, speak or email the coaches and ask them all the same questions and see what the answers are...then you make your short list of who to visit and practice with and, hopefully, you and your daughter can arrive on a decision. Mom, you have to do the due diligence to make sure it's what your daughter needs....nobody can tell you where to go...you have to figure it out on your own and based on your daughter's athletic ability, skills, her wants and desires and what the end game is here....she may only want to play competitively; but not at a higher level.....what does SHE want to do; it's her life, she playing the sport.......it's her journey....we're just here to get them were they need to be.
Its u15, you should know the drill by now
At Regionals in Barboursville WV. Fields are tiny and mostly weeds. Basically a u12 8v8 field. Poison everywhere. What a dump. I talked to 3 other parents today. All 3 kids have poison. I'm guessing they mowed it. The sidelines were up against woods. Great pick usys. Ecnl knows how to pick a location. Usys not so much.
Brick/Wildcats really testing themselves this weekend... Lehigh Valley Steamroll. Rec tournament at best. How low can these coaches go? Lol.
Odds are that the WC's were registered for that tourney before the addition of new players. Good practice for the team to get use to playing together. Kudos WC's. Good things ahead.
Brick wildcats, nj fury, wildcat fury, no matter how u say it the translation - JOKE
That wcfury will be a non factor in region 1... They will be battling old bridge for the premier state cup and outdoing the flames in Edp cup tournaments... Non factor and that is that ... Enjoy the steamroll because that's exactly what will happen when wcfury confronts a quality club... They will be victims of the steam roll that lies ahead
NJCSA is still struggling to field a team for this age group, only have a minimal amount of players committed for next season, so all the rhetoric about them being ok is just that rhetoric. They are in trouble and may not have a team next year. That is a fact and if you are one that has already committed, you may wish to get your money back and find other options. Don't believe what you have been told.
We ALL know about NJCSA and DM. Enough.
Brick look great this weekend. Wow what a team!
Way to go Brick, 9-0 over City Islanders. Guess that makes you and new fraud team feel real good huh?
Very impressive beating a team ranked near 600 in the region. Something to brag about. But when you can't win your own points that's what we'd expect from you. Quality all the way.
It is not the score, team look great all together. Total domination. In my opinion brick / wildcats and Nj elite will be the best two teams this coming season. You will see in the summer tournaments. But I understand you all being jealous , your daughters didn't make the team.
anyone will make the WC team......you just need to pay to play there......that is the fact of the matter
10:22PM - the quality (or lack thereof) of your competition has a lot to do with how the team "looks". Hard to say they looked great when playing lower skilled competition FWIW
Don't understand the they will take anyone if you pay comment when that's what Match Fit did with 27 rostered, NJSCA would do if anyone would go there & Shore was desperately trying to get to 22 + rostered but just couldn't find enough people to buy what they were selling which goes to show some people are getting themselves more educated but that still leaves the others who can be sold anything as those people are way too easy. Everyone should worry about their own teams & problems & less on other teams. Enjoy the Summer.
10:34AM - you'd be amazed at how many still get sucked in by the "label". I know many, and at the end of the day, the kid never really gets "better". In fact, they generally tend to lose interest and quit.
looks like IGFA in trouble to even make the finals for a showdown with Splash as they tie their first game today. Let the excuses start...NOW!!!
3:13 you are funny . glad we made you happy today .lol
you are right , Pda too strong, 3-0 today vs an incredible strong team
is there a link to see schedule and scores?
Schedules - Nat. Cup XIV Mid-Atlantic Regionalhttp://soccer.sincsports.com/TTSchedules.aspx?tid=USCLUBB&year=2015&stid=USCLUBB&syear=2015&div=U14F01
Prediction for tomorrow is PDA 5-0 winner over Second Tier. Keep away in second half.
STA isn't second tier.
The MIGHTY Old Bridge... state champions... Best team moving up got an amazing 1-1 tie yesterday with...Jersey Knights Knightmares. Haha.
PDA won 1-0. STA played them well. Good game by both teams.
Hey Mr. 5:0? What happened? Have you seen STA results lately and you suffer? Did you play only possession or worry to the last minute about your win?
Much more exciting to play possession after 1:0. Splash totally dominated the game , sta was not even on the field. Splash do not care , too strong and too high level for any Nj team to even bother
GFA back on track smacking PDA South Madrid around 6-1. Maybe the ultimate final will happen after all.
3:11 = worst troll ever thanks for the laugh though.
6:04 looks like you do not have a life and your only joy is to wait for something to hate. Guess you will still be around us unfortunately.. You miserable idiot.
Slick left IGFA a year ago you dope. At Matchfit.
Hopefully both pda teams will get shut up this week. I understand protecting the brand equity of PDA by not playing NJ teams. But the south team travels all over the East coast beating up other B teams, instead of playing EDP and being middle of the road.. Parents should wake up and realize that it's a waste of money unless you are on the ecnl team.
If your daughter is playing and getting better and is happy where she is who cares. Why do you care? Why don't we all enjoy the games and leave the kids alone. Take it from me. Your daughter's career can end in the blink of an eye. Enjoy it while you can.
7:44They don't play EDP because then they would be exposed as being only the third best team in South Jersey.They aren't even the second best PDA team at this age, everyone knows the Hornets are and Madrid was given the NPL slot to try and sell the South brand. Miserable fail
Splash vs. IGFA tomorrow at 9am. Time to put up or shut up!
Saw Splash play today. They looked bad. Players out of position. All bunched up like an 8u rec team.
GFA bad too. Splash will have it easy tomorrow . Nobody seems to really care anyway
Okay Monday night quarterback was your Mia not playing so that you can stand by and judge two teams that took it easy today. No way that either team had the intentions of turning it up when they were already in. Both teams will be exciting to watch. Stop being an ass and let the girls play. Whether they win or lose it will be competitive and a good showing for NJ
A 3 game tournament and if you win you go to nationals....lol can you say money grab
So simple that your team should have done. Idiot's jealousy. You could have won the state cup too..
both teams are going to national actually, doesnt matter who wins. IGFA already qualified
Playing 3 years up, in the national pool and a top drawer top player at the U16 ECNL champions league. This kid is legit
Splash will be out coached tomorrow and the legit kid is overrated.
446your the idiot,go beat some other b and c teams then tell us you are national chumps....lol...what a idiot....
Craziness about youth soccer. Instead of being humble you chump off a team of girls. So big and bold stop by the field and render the same remarks. Will be more than humble to respond to your assumption and idiot opinion.
After beating up on low level completion this week it will be interesting to see the outcome of the PDA vs IGFA game.
Gfa planning to run up the score on PDA tomorrow. Eight is enough.
10:32 you and all the others before are just stupid trolls . Let the girls play and have a good training tomorrow , that all it is . Both teams are there for that purpouse . Leave these good girls alone and stop creating trouble. Wish all girls a good fun game
These idiots talking smack on behalf of GFA are NOT GFA parents. Just someone trying to start trouble!! Both teams are quality and it should be a good game!! Best of luck girls!!
Slick you are an idiot and should be banned from all games and this blog,you create all the trouble and dislike for gfa just be quiet and let the girls play,best of luck to both teams...just leep slick off this blog
PDA 1GFA 3
Haha, Splash get dominated!!!
Splash has been on a downward spiral which is why they stay away from the top NJ teams. SJEB, GFA & Brick(when healthy & all their real players) would all beat the Splash. What will the mighty PDA do now as the top players aren't going there in this age group anymore. The Splash lost to MF which is the same as Freehold, Rush & teams like that with style & skill.
Stop with the trolls . Was a good game between the two best teams we have in Nj . That is the fact. Nothing else and good job to both teams . Well done, nice game.
Pda hides from NJ teams because product in this age group is not up to par. Other age groups have healthy competition with NJ teams. It's a Ponzi scheme
Game was even. Could've been 2-2. Splash not given goal that hit post, went in and came out hitting other post. Third goal was nice PK shot. Good job IGFA. No doubt 2 best in NJ.
Even game indeed. The ball did not bounce in and out and it was not a Pk kick. Get your glasses fixed. But still even.
IGFA talked the talk and then walked the walk.Props to them!
No big surprise here. In all age groups you can find top level non ecnl teams beating ecnl clubs and yes even the almighty PDA. There is more parity amongst the leagues than the ecnl board would like you to believe. Of course once the college showcases start they will segregate the encl teams into their own bubble. So it was good that igfa got to make this statement now.
No PK but free kick outside the box. And no two post but a difficult save from Gk with help of a defender. Could have been 2-2 or 4-1 both teams had opportunity. Splash very good at the beginning up one goal after few minutes , then little by little IGFA came out and second half they were better . Good job all girls
Back to ducking competition now.
June 29 3:13 pm .. Hello good morning
SJEB still the best team with GFA probably 2nd. Splash maybe 3rd now or lower we'll have to see if they play the rest of the top teams from the Region. Struggled against a depleted STA team isn't encouraging for them. Go back to play against the same clubs that don't have all the best teams in this age group so you can take 3rd again there.
IGFA as humble as usual.
IGFA and pda are not commenting anything in a bad way . They played a very good game. That's it. No need to add hating comments like " GFA humble as usual" because you want to create problems . The girls do not deserved assholes like you in this blog. Go away
Free fiiii foooo fuuummmm
SJEB better thaN GFA? That's a joke.. Look at last 3 times they played them GFA won all 3... GFA was #1 before today and still is. Splash not a bad team but GFA much better.
would like to say good afternoon to:june 18 at 5:36june 18 at 5:24june 19 at 9:49june 19 at 10:25hope you have a good day
You had those dates and times ready to go didn't you. Nobody cares.
Why all the negativity?? GFA & PDA are both high quality teams with talent all over the field. Both teams played well and showed their quality. Both teams played hard and left it on the field. We should applaud that...not ridicule it. Those 36 girls have bright futures in whatever they choose to do in life because their work ethic is unquestioned. Well done girls!!
No doubt 1:40 but this was a game that sent the winner to the National Cup no need to rush them they have plenty of time to grow up. This is u14 soccer and there can only be one and that one is IGFA today.
Bravo 1:40!!! Finally a sensible person on here. Well said. In the end they are all 14 year old girls. It's about friendships, teamwork, and having fun.
Well said 1:52 and 1:54!! They are building lasting friendships and lifelong memories not resumes at 14 years old. As parents we should just sit back and enjoy are kids enjoying themselves playing a game!!
1:52 stop provoking a reaction. i understand you are upset that igfa won, sorry but there is no reason to start trouble. maybe the fact that your daughter is not good enough to play ever in these kind of games makes you really bitter; i understand but your daughters needs you in the backyard
Now PDA gets to stay home vs being embaressed at nationals.
Great job by both teams today and evenly played for the most part. Lots of quality players on both sides and a fun game to watch. GFA clearly better at taking advantage of their opponent's mistakes in their own end. Well done and good luck to both teams.
whatever the results can we finally accept the fact that these two teams are the best product of soccer in NJ at this age group. i am sure we all agree no other teams are better. i am talking quality of players and the way they play the game. tactical and technically
Stop responding and they will stop provoking!!!!!!!
Not trying to provoke anything but can I ask why all of you people are saying that these "2" teams are beat in NJ? Why is PDA the top team? They are a good team but they lost 3-1 to the top team. They didn't beat quality to get there and niether did GFA. All you people on this blog built this game up and have been talking about it for over 1 year. GFA finally proves themselves and that's that. Good job PDA band definitely a top 10 team but not a top 5 team.
When you pay $5000, travel all over the US, spend countless hours in a car it's tough to talk about having fun and friendships. My kids have both been on planes to play sports so I am crazy as well. May not be you but many people are drawn to PDA to pump their chests on the sideline and put bumper stickers on their car. No one goes to a high pressure team like PDA for a fun time. I do think the pressure can be a good thing for child development. Just don't throw it's all about fun when you find out your team is not as good as you have been telling your coworkers, neighbors or anyone else who will listen.
No one cares about GFA or PDA. What everyone really wants to know is why Old Bridge is so quiet now and why their coach was watching with the parents on the parent side during their last game. That's the real story.
PDA has injuries to their starters which hurt the defense but IGFA is the better team right now. Game was closer than score.
2:57 ok got your points, then tell me your top 5 teams if PDA is not one of them.tactically and technically
3:05 - 1:52 here - First I disagree about the bumper stickers - I have my kids bumper sticker on my car and I will support her club just like I will support the NWSL and the MLS. Unfortunately, they can't do it with our support. So why you spin that into a negative is beyond me. I guess you don't own any team caps, jerseys and stuff like that. Like it's so much better to have a Yankees bumper sticker than my own kid's club.2nd I agree with you pressure at this age can't be about development when they are still learning how to play. There will be plenty of time for pressure.This loss has to hurt PDA ECNL - first No ECNL Finals now No National cup. It's okay it's just u14. We start u15 in another month and go through this all over again.
IGFA missing 3 staters too... It's part of the game. No excuses just play.
Where does IGFA go now that they've conquered NJ? Can't go back to beating EDP teams. What is the plan for the team?
IGFA goes back to work to prepare for nationals. Nothing else to say
Nationals has been decided. Slammers best 14u team in US.
Hey slick stop being so bitter. Your Mia is the greatest around so why do you even bother with a little low level edp team. You left us a year ago to seek greener pastures. Slammers could be the best u14 team too bad they are so far away. But I bet you this they will be more willing to play us unlike MatchFit. Still ducking since Mia can't get by IGFA defenders so the likelihood of exposing the weakness of your team will never come to fruition. DUCK DUCK DUCK ... Come out and play slick... It won't be so bad...ask PDA....feeee fiiii foooo fummmm...MATCH FIT is next yum yum yum
6:21 great troll . Nobody will fall for it but you will reply to yourself anyway to start trouble lol
Does anyone actually talk about their kid's soccer team at work?
Still want to know what happened to the OB coach. Red Card the day before?
Starting with the above repeat offender. Who are the top 5 most annoying u14 adults? No names or initials. I nominate the idiot from Blue Blaze who would always scream at the beginning of games and after goals.
OB claim on their website and everything else that they are state champions and they consistently beat the so called academy teams blah blah blah.You played in the second bracket of state cup and also this week the second bracket of regionals and you couldn't beat Cranford Chaos or Jersey Knightmares... Who are nowhere near academy level.If you played GFA, Splash, SJEB, STA, Stallions, Copa, Rush it would be an absolute joke. Closer to an American football score than a soccer score. So maybe now you might actually just shut up. Obviously the red card for the screaming idiot coach proved he can't handle defeat.
How did he get a red card?
So who are the best five teams to look at in the state. Who play the best soccer
My 2 cents. For technical skills and overall play, it's GFA, SJEB, PDA Splash, Stallions and Copa.
You could put Matchfit in too
It would be hard to include Matchfit only because no one has seen them play other than the parents
MF plays long ball with very little skill, GFA relies on speed as does Splash where Copa, SJEB & Stallions attempt to play soccer the correct way. GFA are the having the most success this season playing their way but when they play an equally fast team with better technique & skill they will have a hard time competing. Splash haven't been NJ top team in a while but stay away from NJ teams so you didn't notice as the last time before this week was losing to SJEB which for my money when 100% healthy still the top team. No disrespect to GFA which has had an amazing season but when people now expect you to be a top team it will come down to coaching, training & soccer IQ which they cannot match the top clubs with the better training & coaching. Copa & Stallions play nice soccer but aren't as talent laden as necessary to compete with the top teams from the Region just yet. MF plays a very ugly brand of soccer & maybe with 27 rostered it's hard to build an identity & chemistry so they have a long way to go to be a top team in even just NJ.
My opinion is best soccer is played by IGFA based on what I saw this week and before. They have technical skills and play a fast effective soccer , great passing solid defense and very dangerous up front. Difficult to score to them and good scoring , to me that is good soccer. Pda is a good team with a great midfield and weak defense. They will get some girls and back to top cause they play better soccer than barons which are very similar of pda style but less talent in midfield. Stallions cannot see any quality in playing the game, just one as many teams out there. COPA plays decent soccer but not much talent to support the tactical. Match fit I know has some great players but didn't see much of them around do cannot say. This is just my opinion didn't want to offend anybody
Opinions?From USA Today U.S. women were multi-sport athletes growing up http://usat.ly/1LZAwJsFrom USA Today
Want better soccer players in the spring; let them play basketball in the winter. Many top even pro players will agree.
Play basketball??!!! Maybe at u10 ... Winter is for small sides stuff and Futsol..... Basketball you must be American and have no clue
Freehold should be the best team then if basketball is important for soccer development . Great winter of basket and in spring they didn't win a game.
That manager in EPL has since been fired and his team were almost relegated. Futsal is the way forward for movements in tight spaces and technical skills, not basketball.
Freehold is coming back super strong you will see! We are the best basketball players that play soccer .
The myth of basketball improving soccer what a joke. I recently recall a mom who pulled her daughter from Futsol to play basketball and now finds her kid playing at a c level team with PDA. Basketball improved what? I wonder if PDA will slow her to play basketball next winter to improve her soccer game? What a joke?
Jul 3 4:05am -- Who cares? I havent read anything here where they are claiming to be top 5. But you seem to be trolling their website for content at 4am in the morning. Your little mia must have been cut from OB or did not make the team. They are who they are... a club team playing where they should be--and for the most part they have been competitive and improve yearly. They gradually moved up from MOSA to JAGS to EDP. Lets the kids play and worry about your own kid.
Chaos team has great coach. They have been working hard and going to Nationals. Splash just list their coach? Hence they lose to gfa. Gfa is hard to beat. The gk and strong offense combine well.
I thought WC was a great team?
That's what you get for thinking
Inheriting points does not qualify you as a good team
Doubtful Chaos will be beat GFA.......regardless of the coach. GFA was in the Super Group; Chaos in the Premier.....didn't think they would play each other at the Nationals.
The hate continues...keep fueling the fire as you can see it has worked so keep it coming
12:21PM - well said. I'm not for or against OB, but they absolutely moved from MOSA all the way to EDP, good for them. Like them or not, that's impressive and at the U15 level when teams traditionally get weaker, they seem to be getting stronger.On the subject of Chaos and PDA - and it really goes against my better judgment to say it - those 2 are absolutely without scruples. My indoctrination into how seedy the business is started with them...I was lucky enough not to sustain irreparable damage.
You were not wanted or needed. If you were, they would have made sure you stayed.
Why? What was so wrong?
What was so wrong? Let's see. Telling all of the parents that the team was officially folding (which it did). Then, without telling anyone other than 3 sets of parents, deciding to "restart" the team with only 4 Brick players and the addition of the entire Wildcat roster. THEN, Handing a low level, undeserving #18 ranked team, the #2 teams hard earned points (earned greatly by players who are no longer there) by using a gotsoccer loophole. You're right...sounds completely legit and ethical to me.
Ok, that is your side. His side is that they didnt want your daughter. Tough to take, but true.
"Ok, that is your side. His side is that they didnt want your daughter. Tough to take, but true. "Thanks coach.(or bigmouth, banned from BTSA, coaches' wife) LOL.
Wait until the blog gets a hold of the NEWS4NY story on Old Bridge Riptide and WWC champions, complete with a state championship banner and everything. That's going to be interesting.
GotSoccer Policy:"Question: My team has moved to a new club & is playing under a different team name. Can we keep the points from our previous events?Answer: The new team must meet the following requirements:•Their current roster has at least 50% of the players from the team in question (Brick)•The players from the team that has split up make up at least 50% of their current roster (Brick)OR•Their current roster has at least 60% of the (Brick) players.While we realize the vital role that a club plays in their teams accomplishments, the rankings points & history are awarded to the players who were on the field for those events. If a team retains the required 50-60% of players, then they are eligible for the rankings points & history."The cheating NEW Wildcat/Brick team meets NONE of these requirements or even comes close. GotSoccer MUST revert this team back to it's previous #18 status in points by its own rules. There's no gray area, it's in black and white. This will continue to be posted daily until the right thing is done.
State championship banner? What championship? What ?
July 6 5:51 why instead to post it here don't you write directly to got soccer and let them know about this wrong doing. I think will be the best way
I have done it, and I urge every other coach involved in the age group to do it as soon as possible as well. It's ridiculous to sit by and allow it to happen. the vast majority of the team EARNED a #18 ranking, and that's where they should be. Period.email@example.com
Great idea! Coaches and players work way too hard and put in way too much time to watch another team (possibly a lesser one) just have something handed to them without putting in the same time, work, and talent level. Fair is fair!
Even though they beat Brick? Let got soccer deal with it if in fact there is an issue. Do you know the WC roster and how many players are from where? You sure seem to have a lot of free time to research. Did your daughter move on and find a new team? You are most definitely a disgruntled parent.
8:18 why? Very clear , only 4 players are from brick so way below and requirement to obtain got soccer . Very simple
To July 6 - 8:01 am. - it's not hate - it's the truth.GFA played in the Super Group and beat PDA in their final game and won the right to go to Nationals. Chaos didn't play a final game in the Premier group......how does that work????? Why do some groups play finals and other don't....talk about not havig a level playing field. Doesn't matter - it's doubtful that Chaos will beat GFA.....on any given day.You can fuel what's not there to be lit.
Hey brick parent. If your daughter was wanted she would be on the team. Your big mouth wouldn't be running then right
To: July 6, 2015 at 10:10 AMI wouldn't worry about what Chaos or PDA think: the bloom is off the rose with PDA Splash and the facade is starting to crack - there are players on that team that shouldn't be playing and they were hyped up...Chaos might have improved but we all know that bb was the Splash coach and and b'elite is bb's business/trade name. So if you didn't fit in....I wouldn't worry about because there's more than one way to make or accomplish anything.....just do what's best and right for your daughter. Maybe it's a blessing they didn't want you......it frees you up to pursue better opportunities for your daughter.
To July 6 @ 9:15 PMDo you often speak without thinking or is just a shot deal.....I'm not a Brick Parent and, apparently, you seem a little slow - try to keep up with the trails here....were not talking Brick...personally I don't care about Brick; don't care about what they do or don't do. Everyone is whining about GS Points........who cares.....nobody talks about the win ratios....that's what the focus should be. So why don't you stop running your mouth and try to keep here before speaking.....do all of us a favor and think before you speak.
Ummm, apparently in your own little world, no ones cares or is talking about Brick. BUT, if you read above your conversation, you'll see plenty of concerned players, coaches, and parents are. Perhaps it's you that's a tad slow. Win percentages? Why do you think they don't go by that? Think hard. It's called strength of schedule. If team A plays garbage teams and beats them all but team B plays all top 10 teams consistently and goes .500, team B will always be higher ranked. Two prime examples are Real Galaxy, and Pt. Pleasant. Look at their win %. Pt. Pleasant is 17-7, but they hide and play absolutely no one in the top 10-20, so they will never move up. Win percentage is meaningless, it's all about who you play as well as who you beat.Oh yeah, the above posts are right. The Wildcat/Brick "agreement" is in violation of GotSoccer protocol. The team should be moved back to their original ranking of 18 or so.
12:05 - you just lumped together Pt Pleasant with Real Galaxy? You do realize Real Galaxy tied for first in the first division EDP (finished second on tie breaker). Were you drinking when you posted that?
Was simply a post on why the best win % is not a valid stat to automatically make you the highest ranked team. That's all. Looks like those are the two highest Win %.
They are not the two highest win percentage in the ranking
Yeah, IGFA is deservedly ranked #1 and PDA doesn't count for obvious reasons. Those are the two best examples, especially Pt. Pleasant.
Bridgewater and Old Bridge are two more good examples. Who have they played/beaten?? Absolutely no one of consequence.
Scheduling and opponents are important factors but difficult to assess if your not from the immediate area. There are teams out there that do chase point in Mickey mouse tournaments accumulate the points but their goal differential, winning percentage and verses quality opponents are dismal.
7:24Pt Pleasant might be good example but not Real. Real is right about where they should be. The only two teams that could be possibly ranked ahead of them are Splash and MatchFit. If I were you, I would focus more on the top 20 teams with a win % in the 30's. How can you be considered a top team when you can't win at least half of your games - no matter who you are playing?
7:24 is absolutely right. All suspect.

8:35 and 7:24 = same person.
Not same person just similar point. When it is all said and done its youth soccer are there are many ways to measure to progress. The point that should be made moving into u15 is simple, assess your situation and goals but don't mislead parents or players as to playing in elite tournaments or player ability because children need the truth not the koolaid that supports the machine which lines the pockets of elitist individuals, altruistic coaches/trainers. As parents we need to be realistic gotsoccer points, false championships, and rankings don't tell the whole story.
Old Bridge is not a false championship. It is not a championship at all. They are the Kings of the rec league, that's it. They know it, we know it, the only person that does not is grandma and grandpa.
Using your logic the USWNT are not real champions because the World Cup only counts for men's teams.andBarcelona's Champions League victory is a false championship because your NJ Club Super Group Cup is the only real "Cup"Every team can be good at their level. This blog is not for the top 5 teams, it is for all teams.Now lets talk 4-4-2 vs 4-3-3 vs 4-2-3-1
That was not using my logic AT ALL. You have serious comprehension issues. My point is simple, have ONE state cup and let everyone compete. To have two only waters it down. No one cares about the NIT.
Where did the remaining Brick Fury players go? There are many lower level teams that are looking for players...
Play all formations pending situation of the game and make up of the team
NJYS says every team should play the 4-3-3
Is that because that formation is expected for the wmnt
