Haters will hate...Go Wildcats!!

We are one of the top teams and we played Wildcats. There are pretty decent team. They can definitely challenge most of the NJ team.

Hmmm think 1:47 and 2:11 are Same person? Yuuuuuup

Agreed as no top team views them as another top team. They play in low level tournaments & never beat any of the top teams.

All I'm trying to say here is NJSA is an "Acedemy" team and to lose 3-0 to a team that has never beat a team by three pionts before is telling!

Excuse me as I clear my throat. NJ Wildcats beat NJX 3-0 last season. Sore losers will say it was "just a scrimmage" in Holmdels scrimmage fest but a game's a game. You come to play. Tired of all the know it alls.

Anonymous said...

Take a lesson from GFA and stay humble Wildcats. You have a lot of league games coming up and I think it's safe to say your team will be lucky to get more than two wins in your division. Might not get even that. Don't get sucked into an argument you will lose without the game history.

There's girls on that team that pour their heart and soul into the game, but never see quality game time. They mostly get to just help run out the clock with ridiculous far side of the field substitutions at every stoppage. Same girls in and out - really takes away from the beauty and spirit of the game. Kind of amusing when a late game goal means the tactic backfires.
They are only u13 - let the teams play and learn the game coach - not teaching them anything by playing scared and perverting the substition rules.

Anonymous said...

Which team?

Anonymous said...

Like this post....worth reposting

High comedy as always on this site. Many with no clue about the game touting that they know everything about every team every where!

So FC Copa lost to PDA Madrid, or PDA Beat FC Copa...Who cares, only the players that played should really care, and btw they are only 12 or 13. Very similar in level of play -- They played to a one goal game. My guess if they played 10 times it would be a 60/40 split either way. The parents of both teams will probably say that is not true. But the FC Copa coach is quite today, I'm surprised, he usually promotes his team. Why not talk about the players and their effort? I'm sure that they played there hearts out as did the PDA team. I hope that the parents enjoyed the game, although one team had to lose, it is sports and that is just the way it is --- There will only be one winner of the NJ Cup...Just a reality. It is my hope that there are a lot of good games along the way, and the players learn from and enjoy the experience. An hope that they are not embarrassed by the actions of their parents. Most of the games I attend the parents for the most part are very respectful of the game and opponents --- So sit back enjoy the games --- Hug your daughter after the game --- tell her it was great to watch her compete --- enjoy the car rides --- because it will all be over before you know it ----

Oh yeah, flash forward 15 years, your having a holiday dinner with your family --- your daughter says, 'I was just thinking about how much fun I had playing soccer when I was younger, but I really enjoyed the car rides with you! and how you always supported me and told me how great is was to watch me play"...That is priceless!!!!!! That will make it all worth while....not the trolls on this site and all the negative people out there...

Enjoy the games over the weekend!

Don't all leagues have the substitution rule where once you come out you're out for the half? That would eliminate joke coaches using substitutions merely to waste time.

ECNL does not the other leagues. Some legumes allow you to sub on every stoppage not just your possession.

Anonymous said...

Don't have to see the game - you lost. That's what happened. You were probably outplayed tremendously because only certain girls see the field and get worn out, but I have no doubt you were "robbed by the refs". I would guess you had a few lucky chances and may have just missed scoring, but the other team surely had more chances as well and it could have just as easily been a blowout. It's soccer and your team needed the win for npl - they didn't get it so yes they choked.

Ever think they may have rested players against Madrid in preparation for this past weekend? Looks to me like NPL is their priority and US Club State Cup didn't mean as much to them.

There is no way the same team that loses to Madrid tied NYSC and beats Manhattan in the space of 4 days.

Anonymous said...

If your kid is in a great spot, then why do you care about Copa? Get off it and let them enjoy their games while you enjoy yours. Pulling off a tie against a very good NYSC team is impressive to a lot of us - yes a loss to Madrid is laughable to us as well, but we don't have the specifics on why that happened so the tie on top of winning every other NPL game so far says more. They certainly can't be taken lightly the way they are playing right now.

Anonymous said...

They didn't rest anyone against Madrid, even so, what's the big deal? Madrid beat them fair and square, it happens. It doesn't mean Madrid is better, just that they were better that day. Copa winning a lot of their home games, BUT they can only play where the schedule tells them to. Good for them for improving each year, don't understand all of the hate towards them.

All I read about is people bashing the big clubs and here is a new up and coming team and they get bashed too...for NOT being one of the big clubs. You people make no sense.

For those who are considering switching teams. I would would parents to do one thing.
Ask your child if they want to switch without influencing them.
For the overwhelming majority the kids want to stay. The ones who want to leave are on teams that don't challenge them. I get that. If your kid is amazing and your top tournneent is the Howell soccer fest you should probably leave. . For most, however, it is the HUGE egos of the parents. Nt the kids. FACT

My kid plays for one of the so-called "academy teams". I don't ever recall anyone promising us a D1 scholarship, nor would I expect that from anyone. It's up to the individual as to whether or not they possess the qualifications that a D1 school is looking for.
You hear a lot on this board about the promise of a scholarship. Has anyone ever heard that from a team official? Just curious because if it is happening I am certainly not aware. Maybe my kid is out of the loop and it's time to go back to the town team.

Apparently on this blog lots of people are saying that at the end all girls end up in PDA or match fit because of ECNL meaning that is the only way to play D1 or scholarship. Nothing could be more wrong. But that is their selling point and lots of people buy it apparently. Watch now all the answers from all parents that need to justify the fact that their kids play for these two academy and they are satisfying their ego with that

As an outsider, it does not matter if PDA have players jump from team to team as long as they are PDA players...however it does impact how we assess the team...yes they are PDA and down the line they will eventually play together...getting them acclimated does not hurt...its about development...some girls play up...others from site to site like MF too...let them play!!

Anonymous said...

Yes, of course. They are going to play 4 games in one day, 2 for splash and 2 for hornets, unless they play at the same time. Then, they will play one half with splash and run to the field where the hornets are playing and play the next half with them. This is really good for their development and completely encouraged by the club. lol

Anonymous said...

Its actually quite simple, after they (Americans) found out they were in the Region 1 finals the same weekend as the NJ Cup final, they withdrew NOW, instead of giving someone a walkover in the semis or finals. Im sure they did probably play their reserves more for experience, although i wasnt there last night.

Anonymous said...

What doesn't add up? Region 1 Premier title means a thousand times more than a single state title. If they have no intention of playing in the title game, why try to get there?
A scrimmage to give backups game training makes sense if both teams already had it on their schedule.

OK, I can see Americans would not be playing on 100%. However, GFA was also missing 4 players. Are we in a position to setup an investigation committee now to analyze this? Let's just stop and move on. It doesn't really matter. The season doesn't end with this game.

Otherwise, the game was great, good defense on both sides with a little bit struggle in the mid. I would say - 60:40 % possession for GFA in the first half. The second half was quite even.

Region 1 North Final 4

AMERICANS SC BLUE BLAZE advanced.

South Shore Advances with a tie or a win in final 2 games.

LVU Advances with 3 wins and South Shore dropping both games (1 to LVU) if head to head is 1st tie breaker otherwise they need to run up the scores.


While over in the South

PREMIER STRIKERS have advanced.

Winner of RHINOS ELITE 00/01 vs GREATER BINGHAMTON FUTBOL GBFC SELECT RILEY is IN or if they tie the door would be open for PWSI COURAGE 00G RED to advance with a win.

Most brackets at PDA have at least 3 teams that can win their bracket. It is all about who is healthy, who plays to their potential, and sometimes it comes down to getting that 1 call from the ref, or your shot hits the post and goes in when the other team hits and goes out.

Mr GFA, you are very crude and ignorant (that means stupid in case you missed it). If you sleep well believing you beat Americans, you can say what you want. The rest of us in the real world know what happened.
By the way, just in case your stupid brain hasn't figured it out - you are not going to win your division in EDP. Your early performance has already eliminated you.

Don't be fooled by the points from joke tournaments, Holmdel is nowhere near the level of LVU or Copa. LVU isn't playing very well lately either based on Region 1 results, so it looks like Copa is the favorite to me - they are playing very well right now.

Ever think maybe Americans "withdrew" after losing before scores were posted? Odd to play a late, week night game that was scheduled from the prior week for no reason. Game was most certainly played, with their regular players and goalie and they lost 2-0. If they didn't come with intentions of trying to win that's just a ridiculous waste of time. GFA bashing is at an all time high guess they must be doing something right to get everyone's attention. No MF or PDA scandals at the moment?

@2:39 - I have no dog in this "fight" but to suggest a team withdrew after losing but before a score was posted is idiotic. Maybe you all need to get your heads around the fact that soccer coaches with nothing to play for will use it as an opportunity to get their TEAM stronger and play some who may not have received as much playing time (ie Americans in playing Region 1) vs. a constant play to win mentality. It sounds like Americans used the game as an opportunity to develop players who haven't received as much playing time, smart move.
And not bashing IGFA, but a lot of talk about a team that hasn't accomplished much. As an observer who's daughter has played against both teams, Americans are far and away a more superior and complete team, it's not even close nor worth further discussion.

This should be very easy to understand. GFA says themselves that they would be properly flighted in fourth bracket of PDA. Americans would be top flight no questions asked. They are on a different level. We have played both as well - no comparison.

And BTW., the roster for the state cup is not set week or 2 weeks before the game.

They had to play who was on the roster. Are you guys saying they planned to be in the regional finals months ago (planned a withdrawal)? You are kidding...

But again, let's not start the nonsense like it happened when GFA won against PDA in a meaningless indoor tournament game. Let's just move on and not get excited each time when a weaker (on paper) team beats some "superior" team. Learn how to loose gracefully and don't make yourself look like a fool each time you lose. Big teams know how to lose gracefully.

Americans withdrew on Sunday when they found out were region 1 finals - agreed to scrimmage since game time already in place - GFA coach knew was scrimmage - neglected to tell anyone until after the scrimmage that it wasn't a real game - why? Wanted girls to play hard? Why wouldn't they, even if you told them? And now on here talking about hiding, development or lack thereof, etc - how about integrity? Honesty?

@5:38pm - why would they have to play who was on the roster? It wasn't a real GAME, they withdrew, that's why there isn't a SCORE posted - it was a friendly, scrimmage, whatever you'd like to call it - but for the cup, it didn't count

Anonymous said...

You must be kidding. Who pays 3 refs for the scrimmage. Why refs were very rigorous about the roster and check every player? Makes no sense. So, let's stop the nonsense.

Lose gracefully. How about you show some grace, self control and common sense. Yes good teams lose to weaker teams. This was NOT a real game no matter how much you want to believe it was.
Take your bye gracefully and stop bothering everybody.

@5:23 - grow up. igfa knocking on doors? Progressing in the region? um, last time I checked the team isn't playing any games of regional significance, wouldn't get accepted into premier or colonial league, won't get out of nj in cups, and stuck in lower levels of tourneys. Not jealous because unlike you I don't obsess over my daughters soccer team. Let your daughter play, don't obsess over who they beat or not, but no one on here that has observed or who's daughters teams have played against both will put those teams in the same category. as 5:27 stated they are on a different level. So keep quiet and focus on incremental growth (as you claim). When they do something regionally I'll be the first to take notice, until then honestly they are a fairly insignificant team.

I think both coaches should explain to their parents this circus! State cup games should not be treated as a joke.

To say that Americans coach took his kids to play on a Tuesday night at 8:00 when the game was meaningless is bullshit..they had all of there "A" players there and they were in the entire time. They got beat and beat good. That doesn't mean that GFA is a better team than the Americans. All that means is that they were the better team last night.. Nobody forfeited the game, you people don't have a clue. Why would they forfeit and then come and play. Like. Previous post said.. There are a lot of GFA haters out there and no matter what they do or who they beat it will always be scrutinized. I'm glad to see that they are bothering you... If you didn't care you wouldn't comment. LOSER!!

I am sure Americans coach was clear. Locking up Region 1 made the game meaningless.
Maybe GFA can play the Barons again - that went well last time.
Let's see what is said when GFA doesn't even win their bracket this weekend - not flight - not even their bracket.

Hey 5:23. Your team will be irrelevant in a year. Enjoy what little success you have now. Your best player will be at PDA tryouts for 3rd year in a row.

@6:00. Your whining is exactly why people jump all over the IG team. Is it that hard to comprehend that the Americans withdrew thereby making the game irrelevant? They were beat and beat good? Goody for you make ya feel better? Again, in the big picture it's irrelevant. Let your girls play and maybe they will be as good as you hope, if you just keep quiet. Oh by the way there is a difference in the words their and there, maybe you should spend your time figuring that out vs. trying to figure out how your little princeses can dominate the state.

Train Work or shut the.....up.Most of this group has no clue of what it takes to develop a player not some spoiled winning kid who's been shuffled around to all the bright and shiny clubs new jersey is full of.Grow up and learn what it takes Cowards.

PDA,GFA,MF,NJSA,WC,FC...,No letter or combination of letters will maker your kid better.Only her desire to be better will do that.You may want her to have it but by now it must come from her SPIRIT her love of the game.No amount of money can buy that!

Does anyone have the link for the PDA Tournament brackets this weekend?

To whole those parents spending so much time bashing other teams and coaches and getting caught up in all the nonsense of petty behavior....enjoy watching your daughters play.......at whatever bracket they're playing. It's their journey....not yours....you are along for the ride and to SHARE in the experience. At the end of the day I'm not sure any of us could do what they do and perform under the pressure. So stop being sooooooo critical of your own daughters and everyone else's and if you have so much to say then get your own butt out there and play a game and see how you do.....until then don't ruin the experience and journey for your daughters. The kids today have enough pressure on them...they don't need obnoxious, over-bearing parents demanding a level of performance.....all the time. Even the pros have bad games and ruts.....doesn't mean they're bad players....we are human....therefore as humans we cannot predict that our performances will be 100% all the time....so why should we expect that of 13 years olds.

A lot of you parents must be really lonely......there's a good way to live through your children and there's a bad way to live vicariously through your children....unfortunately I only see a lot of insecure, self-centered parents who are to self-absorbed to realize that our daughters will determine when and how well they will play.....they have to be motivated and passionate not you. If you want to focus on something go get a hobby that you can be focused and passionate about.

I can't understand how some GFA parents are still saying the game counted.

Can you read?? Go and read the bracket game details. It CLEARLY states 'Americans Blue Blaze Withdraw'.

Then no score is posted.

You advanced via a forfeit. And to be clear, Region 1 Finals are the SAME weekend as State Cup Finals. Americans will be in Delaware on May 10-11 so they withdrew. Even if they got to the Finals of State Cup they would not be here to play it.

Wake up GFA... Just own up to the forfeit and stop trying to brag that you beat them fair. Some of your own parents even said the Americans were not the same team last night.

@7:56. I'm the poster and not even remotely affiliated with NJ Force. Oh by the way, my daughters team has played Force as well, not as good as the Americans but they are a better team athletically than IG. I'm sorry if I touched a nerve,it's just an opinion. But to automatically assume it's another teams poster is truly comical and also kind of pathetic.

IGFA and TSF are merging?

Anonymous said...

Both low level phoney academies that have convinced parents they are major players in high level soccer but none if the true high level clubs & teams view them that way. One day parents will do their own research & ask around & see they are being taken for a ride. Better them then me.

Anonymous said...

Did not hear of a merger, but GFA has nowhere "special" to play and must realize they will lose their best players to ECNL or NPL clubs. Delusional parents don't think so, but first losing streak after one or two leave and then the whole team implodes. They are virtually eliminated from winning their EDP division and realistically have no shot to win State Cup, so there's nothing to brag about to hold on to players. TSF somehow made it into NPL, but certainly isn't as strong as they'd like so maybe merging satisfies both needs.

Anonymous said...

How will the TSF parents feel when most of them go from the NPL team to the 2nd team after the merge with GFA. I would say only 4-5 kids on TSF good enough to play with GFA.

Anonymous said...

That's easy. With a whole team coming and paying fees, they can offer them a small discount and promise they can train together and have a good chance to make the team. Then you offer extra training (for a fee) to improve their chances. Look at the Hornets (playing Jags) or the practice dummies on Splash who never make game day rosters - people pay on empty promises. Even if a couple leave, they can be replaced.

I can see you are all happy people. Never one " ok good luck" or " wish them well" ever!
After all We are all talking of 12 and 13 years old kids, why should we be always negative about every new thing? It is like having a blog about schools and keep bashing every school and every teacher.
You are all unbelievable. And should be ashamed to start your day wich so much negativity inside you. What a miserable life

Wow. Guess the truth hurts!

Lol no it doesn't hurt me lol I do not even know who tsf is and very little of GFA so could care less, just opening my phone and immediately read negative stuff about kids is horrible. You do not hurt me , just disgust me.
I am a teacher and it worries me what is happening around our kids

I posted the assessment of why the merger would make sense and did not intend to be negative but realistic. I am very happy to wish all nj teams luck except when they are my daughters opponent.
My positive for today is wishing all teams playing this weekend injury free, competitive, and enjoyable matches. For those in tournament play, the weather will be gorgeous and the friendships and family time between matches should be cherished. Don't forget your sunscreen!

All kidding aside what is the W league and who truly cares about it? The US barely supports the womens league that has Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan. If your not playing college or The womens pro league at that age isn't it time to get a job?

If your having your kid play in the hopes of college money wake up ! Not gonna happen for most of your kids.Save your money for an SAT study course.

Do any of you know what to look for in a soccer program? How could you tell if it really was "developmental"...by titles won by 10,11,and 12 year olds ??Do you have a set of standards you use as an measuring stick for a program ?

Look what PDA did with brackets how could any nj team enjoy the weekend.....what a joke... Thanks BB

@8:30. only a few are truly negative, and when comments are made about teams, parents take it personal. While everyone wants their child to succeed, most on here have no basis to make informed comments, and it turns to bashing. 10:43 is a perfect example....could of made the comment but left the white trash part out. Guess it makes him/her feel superior.
10:46 - is that a true ask or a rhetorical question?
@10:48 - yet another PDA bashing. I mean really? Teams are slotted in brackets, let the girls go play. If for some reason you feel your daughters team was slighted, best way to prove that is for her team to go win. Regardless, the weekend is finally supposed to be nice, and everyone's intent should be to enjoy the weekend and watch soccer if you feel so inclined. For most of you, it'll all be over in a few short years, and based on the comments by many on here it can't happen soon enough.

Exactly...girls just go out, have fun and play your best..learn from both your mistakes & successes, don't worry about the w's or l's your parents will do that for you..

Force is dropping fast! Not doing well in Region 1 & will finish 3rd most likely in EDP. Will those unstable parents erupt? Many will leave to go with old coach I'm sure.

Finishing 3rd is never the end of the world and just being IN Region 1 is a positive

Rock on, NJ Force

Being in Region 1 Premier is nice recognition for the Force, however wouldn't get too comfortable as it looks likely they won't be back next year. Colonial league maybe, but they won't be back in the Premier league. Good team, aren't fundamentally sound though, and not a great team that Premier requires you over time to be. I can see why people jump all over the Force, some of the most brutal parents out there. Someone should tell the dad that likes to coach from the side where opposing parents sit to zip it. Kinda sad watching him shout instructions during a game that more than half the time are the wrong set of instructions to his daughter and other teammates.
