U14G / U14 Girls Youth Soccer

U14G  / U14 Girls youth soccer seems to offer the most teams and the widest diversity of talent.

Where these players will end up is anyone guess.

Welcome to the ride.

NYSC how does it feel to have the NYCSL NPL slip away late last year and now
you are looking up to

1. NJ Crush 27pts
2. STA 20pts
3. ISA 20pts
4. Massapequa 18pts
5. Manhattan 16pts
6. TIED with Quickstrike 13pts (this one has to hurt)

You my boy, I know you play nice but when it doesn't translate it doesn't translate they are u14 know not u9 where style points count :)

PS. You know I'm busting horns - but I am shocked at where you guys are on the table

Admin please can you please delete older comments really do not want the blog to lock up before Jeff Cup and upcoming tryouts.

Agree 331 and look at what's ahead of them, a bunch of very weak teams...
That league is a joke.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, its been tough, as I know the team is better than their results would indicate. But as a fan, you must root for your team, and that’s all that I am doing. This blog provides a release for life’s tough days, a place where you can have a laugh, make a stupid comment, and perhaps even learn something new. As fas as the NPL goes, we are not out of contention, since there will be a playoff, and the girls need to be clicking then. I spoke to a Crush parent at an indoor event this past month, and he was shocked that there would be a playoff, its not common knowledge. As we were saying goodbye, I said that I hope we see them in the playoff, and we both laughed, but his laugh tailed-off and he looked a little concerned.

There were several reasons the team did not excel, none of which are important to anyone outside the team, or worth mentioning.
I do however, expect a more aggressive and results based season coming up, we shall see, that is the plan.

P.S. Thanks 3:52, its guys like you that make this board so much fun!

ODDS for one of ECNL coaches not showing up to practice tonight is 100-1 .

Any takers?

Anonymous said...

I remember not so long ago parents complaining about the MF "daddy" coach, now you have a paid coach and complain he never shows up.
Did the "daddy" coach miss this many practices?

Grass is not always greener on the other side.

Anonymous said...

Coaches miss many practices as long as the club provides another well qualified trainer it's ok. I'd rather continue to practice and cancel like many other clubs do if the coach cannot attend.

Plus you never know with coaching assignments not set in stone for many clubs you may training with next year's coach anyway. Could be a way for the club/coach to evaluate.

Anonymous said...

If the club is evaluating a coach for placement next year, would someone from the club have to be there to do the evaluation? Or do they just go by the phone calls they get the next day?

Anonymous said...

at MF, "Daddy Coach" never missed anything

Problem now, current coach missed all the time. combine practices are more often than not. Both ECNL coaches are not reliable. when a fill coach takes over, they are not ECNL material nowadays.

Why would the girls want to play up on the 2001 teams when the 2002 teams Storm and Dragons are staying U-15?

Anonymous said...

Even if yo are a Jan '02 you stand to be playing vs many a year or close to a year older, more developed physically.

If she is strong - and READY for the physical challenge- and they are giving you the choice- READ how your player's prospects to contribute to each team (play up or play on level) look.

Playing up is nice - but be careful.

Let's say your team roster has 23...hint hint(ECNL anyone?)...consider how much playing time you're getting now before you think you think you can play up

Yeah, but a PA mom still looks hot in a burlap sack. With a NJ or NY mom, its best to gag them with a piece of the burlap or put it over there head and leave them on the side of the road (we already know the husband would never pay the ransom).

If MF wins this week vs PDA they will be up 7 on PDA and 6 on PF. All they would need to do is beat the teams they beat in the fall plus beat 1 of the 3 teams they tied or tie 2 of the 3 and they are in.

MF vs remaining schedule with Fall scores

5:0 FC Bucks ECNL U14
4:0 World Class FC ECNL U14

Was it this blog that was asking if there was any value in a girls team playing against a boys team? This is an interesting article about two YNT girls that are playing on a boys team in Illinois.

Yes, I just read that too, interesting. The girls played against a boys team on Sunday, lost 3-2, but they gave a great effort, the boys were just a little quicker and stronger, but the girls played better tactically, and were leading 2-0 at halftime. Still don’t like the concept, but an occasional game might not be a bad idea.

12:41 Maybe you can take some of that money your spending and see if you can buy a sense of humor. There's nothing wrong with a little smack talk between the states as long as its all in good fun. Your daughter must really enjoy the car ride home as you analyze everything she did that day. Not to mention the film review as soon as you get home and your power point presentation of where she needs to improve.

3:16 No problem with you letting her read some of the stuff on the blog, its just the 100 question test you make her take afterwards. With as serious as you are, there is probably a former spouse that is actually enjoying themselves now

Wouldn't every post on here be as you said a hit and run post? Do something about it???? If you have nothing to to add to the conversation, why bother to respond?
It does seem like a legitimate question. How many players do you know that openly play for 2 different teams during the league season. ( not including guest playing at tournaments)

Anonymous said...

My daughter’s club would never allow that, but our club has class, so. If the player is #9, then I salute her in moving-up to ECNL. She is a very good player, and without her they will struggle.

Anonymous said...

Here is what I would like to add to the conversation:

AGHHHHH! Rostered on two teams?!? OH NOOOOOOOOO!

Here is what you wrote:

"Can somebody tell me how can MF ECNL add the best player from NJCSA Manalapan and she be allowed to play for both teams this season?"

Here is what you should have written:

"It is my understanding that MF ECNL added the best player from NJCSA Manalapan to their roster and now she is playing for both teams. I believe this creates an unfair competitive advantage for not only this player, but also for both MF ECNL and NJCSA Manalapan. It is my hope that by posting this one of you will look into it further because God knows I don't have the stones to actually go through the proper channels to raise the issue with the proper authorities."

"Hit and run" means you throw a statement out into the ether of the internet and hope someone else acts on it. You throw it out there and run away. If you care so much about the situation do something about it other than posting anonymously on an internet message board. Don't be such a coward. Own it. Go get this player and punish her as well as her parents and the clubs that have enabled her.

Anonymous said...

What would you have them do? Get a transfer - even if it is between leagues?

I guess this weekend we see which team gets favored status for them - the #1 in the state or the actual better team (MF)

Getting in ahead of tryouts was wise. I commend them.

Anonymous said...

5:14 I do see your point and understand that you want to keep it clean for the young eyes that may peruse this blog. But what I'm reading on here is pretty tame compared to what is said in a school hallway or on a school bus ride. Not justifying either, just not being naive about what my daughter may hear or read as a teenager.
I realize you want straight soccer talk, but the smack talk makes this blog a good read also.

Anonymous said...

6:49 I agree - I also hate playoffs just for the record.

Just go the theECNL website they spell it out for you - NOTHING WRONG - and she can play for BOTH.

Dual-Rostered Player

•In other words, there is a pool of players within an ECNL club. If a player is pulled up to play with the ECNL team for a game, she will be added to the ECNL season roster for the remainder of the year. She will be allowed to go back and play for her original non-ECNL team.

Sorry to say MF forward plays ECNL and team in PA as well. So if you that option why wouldn't a parent want to do it.

The same people who have complained for years about guest playing, and now the discovery players will change their tone if their child decides to try out with A Da team. I personally like the process because it allows the player and the parents to feel confident before they commit to a move from their present team. the smart people know at this point it's about getting the player identified. Her parents are doing a great job of this I see her everywhere ,she's at ODP training centers Futsal Summer select, while still being loyal to her home team.I tkink she will reluctantly end up on one of the areas top teams,the time is right. Best of luck to her and her family.

What are the ecnl substitution rules? I'm curious after a discussion with my daughter about whether it's worth being on the lower half of an ecnl roster. I've been on the ecnl website for a while and have found out a lot about rostering but can't find where it states the substitutin rules. Thanks in advance for your knowledge!

Anonymous said...

Max 7 subs per half, no re-entry each half

Anonymous said...

Once your player comes out of an ecnl game she is done for the remainder of the half. She may return in the second half . When she is subbed out in the second half she is done for the day. There is a little more to it as the game entered overtime or PK's .

Anonymous said...

Thank you 8:25 and 8:27

Anonymous said...

8:10 Yes 8:10 & 827 are correct player leaves the field no re-entry same goes for the NE-NPL league or the ECNL B teams if you want to call them, so usually the Top 5-7 will get the majority of playing time. There are players that will go in for 10-15 minutes then get pulled and are done for the half. So there are scenario's where parents travel miles/hours/hotels to watch their kid play less then 25 minutes a game. So if you know your daughter is not in the Top 12 on that team it may not be worth yet.

In my honest opinion I think it's stupid rule, the college game doesn't even follow it.

Those are the same rules for all NPL games and teams.

@ 7:53 - I agree with 10:30 100%. If you're playing at Match Fit, and you want to play in college then you're in a good place. It's MF or PDA.. anything else in NJ, for the next few years is way off the pace.

7:53, you're a bitter person with an agenda... go have a argument with your cat, you will get the same reaction.

Anonymous said...

She doesn't play up top anymore. They need her more in the back now because defense is weak without her. The players up front are accustomed to feeding her the ball and now there's no one to feed. They're not used to scoring without her. The theory of mommy and daddy throwing money at PDA for playing time just isn't panning out anymore. Talented girls left because of it and are thriving elsewhere. It's all about who can get Mike O'Neill alone after practice or on the phone first over there.

I want to gang upon the Dragons my self, but can't do it. A Shell maybe? Did your kid play for them previously because you keep saying the same thing? Looking at the results - last year they played 30 games decided by 1 goal and won 12 while dropping 3 with 7 ties. Where this year so far they only played 8 1 Goal games per GS where they won only 2, tied 2 and dropped 4 of their overall 6 Ls. looks like the same team the ball just bounced their way more last year. Of course if you are an insider you know more than me.

I am no "Soccer Nut" but was at the game and can give my perspective. It was a very exciting game to watch. Both teams battled hard and tempers flared throughout the entire game. It was very fast paced and PDA had the better percentage of play, probably 60-40. They moved the ball a little better than MF but MF capitalized on two very good opportunities. First goal came as a result of a corner kick on the far end where national team player took the kick. The ball got kicked out of the box and and a quick transition up the field from two very good passes lead to a break away where MF put it in from near the 18 as the goalie came out to cut the angle. Second goal was sick, MF national team player hit a knuckler top left corner from 20 out. MF had another opportunity where goalie made a finger tip deflection that just went wide of the net, was clearly going in. PDA didn't have any solid opportunities from what I remember. Made some good attacks on the net but no solid shots.

The PDA team play in a very pleasing style. The young ladies play from the back through the midfield but sometimes without purpose. One can tell that they are well coached but their team is incomplete.and a bit disjointed Their ability to play in the last third is their weakness.

Match fit played a nice game of compress and counter attack.They strategically shrunk the field by allowing PDA to play in their half and had no issue with compression. it appeared that their game plan was to win the ball and quick counter. It worked beautifully.

PDA style of play is fun to watch if you are purist but hard to win consistently unless you have all the pieces.

The more direct may be less pleasing but you tend to make less mistakes and therefore win more games.

There were players on both sides of the pitch that were technical so it is certainly not a matter of who had the more technical players, its that one style of play requires more commitment to the "concept of the beautiful game" while one is similar to the style you see in most elite clubs and a large percentage of D1 programs.

If you took the best from both teams you would probably have a team that could beat most in the country in a style that would make even the most purist proud.

Well done Ladies !

Only beating FC Frederick 1-0 can't provide PL much confidence leading up to their much tougher games this weekend in Richmond.

Anonymous said...

10:38 One would think that by the score. But FC Fredrick is dedicated to their defensive style and keeping the ball out of the middle from their twenty five on in. It was raining so hard right from the beginning that it was actually a fun game to watch because of how hard both teams had to work to accomplish anything.
I know Fredrick gets beat up on here, but I can see them doing well at Jeff Cup. If memory serve me right, PL won by the same score at Wags against Fredrick and they played well against BRYC and TFA (can't remember the scores). Did they beat SS in Regionals??

I'd agree. Other than PF who beat them 3-0 not many teams have scored more than 1 against them.

I'd rather see a girl upset, disappointed, angry than girls who walk off the field giggling after a loss and only worry about how quickly they can check their social media...

2:55 Not all is lost. My son played an 11:00 am game in Shrewsbury NY yesterday (sun was shinning by the way) and the NJ parents were great during and after the game. It's easy to look at a basket of apples and see the bad one, then not want any of them. We have PA parents that are jackasses too and unfortunately those are the ones we are judged by (present company included).

Your are correct about kids handling losses in different ways. My own children have handled losing in different ways, with one not talking for awhile and the other forgetting the score when she walks off the field. The player that won't shake hands will mature and realize how silly that was. Most likely the competitiveness that drives her to be great, doesn't stop burning till long after the game.

PL parent, if you aren't already, you should be a shrink. Great objectivity!
So where's your daughter going next season? Staying at PL? Or is she one of them going to PF?

PL Guy,

Remember what I said about EM, not sure what position your daughter plays, but you must contain #24, don’t let her drive unopposed, and don't let her create at the top of the box. They also have a tall and gifted GK, you need to shoot low and hard, use her height against her. Good luck this weekend.

So will PL U15 or U16 even survive for the fall?

Anonymous said...

PL appears to be a good team that can consistently beat other decent teams and punish weak teams but show me a game in the past year where they've beaten a top team. League play looks to have been very average and in top tournaments they've failed to do much at all. Even with your help 7:20 East Meadow wins 2-0. It's the FCV East Meadow game that all eyes should be on. FCV 1-0 in OT for that game. Other bracket will come down to CASL and PDA. Despite the past weekends results I still pick PDA to take that bracket but lose to FCV. 1-0.

Am I wrong?

Oh, almost forgot, if you really want them off their game, foul them, and they will start flopping around like fish on crack!

Best of luck PL.

Pretty sure any parent seeing their daughter pointed out as the top player to watch for is not upset
I didn't see anyone saying "watch out for #?, she sucks and will determine your game outcome:

Anonymous said...

I cannot believe there so many people on here calling out specific players it feels like you are all back in HS. The PDA v MF was an excellent game to watch both teams were coming from previous touch Saturday ECNL games. This is why you play in high level league not to blow away or get blown away to have close relevant games like the PDA/MF game.

On the other note many you should be happy that our daughters have played With/Against players at the NT level because there are hundreds of teams from NPL down to town level travel that do not even see that caliber type of player.

"calling out"? people are mainly complimenting the play of a specific player 'calling out" usually has a negative meaning. better than trashing each other clubs isnt it?

There is a difference between actually being YNT roster versus being called into camps. YNT camps leads to being placed on the roster at U15-U20. Actually being on the roster and playing games against international competition is a different story.

Of course it's an honor to be called into 3 of the YNT camps they run during the year and the YNT team rosters are created from those camps but there is every turnover camp so many of U15's called into U14 camp last year to U15 camps this year are no longer being called back. Go ahead and research the camp call backs.

Anonymous said...

Players are called into camp at the multiples. It is a nice coo for those kids that get called into to those camps. However, few are able to stay. Some get longer looks, some shorter looks. In the end very few make it to the U20 youth national team where it starts to get serious. It is however great for the college resume.


Congrats to those that even get a look

In the most recent camp, none of the 2002s were called up. I will bet that the final U17 World Cup team in 2018 has some 2002s. BTW, for Age the MFA kid is one of only 2 players called up which were born in 2002. That would indicate that she is considered one of the very top players at her age.

Anonymous said...

Agree 1:56 and 2:07 - The turnover is in multiples but it's great to be called into the camps. Thus the reason why the PDA v MF game was the most talked about game this past weekend on this blog as both teams had a few YNT camp attendees or future attendees on hand thus leading to more attendance as usual for U14 game. Great game!

Can we go back a few days and someone give me how clubs like MF work around the dual carding for U.S. Club.

212 Yes you are correct if your child is 2002 and has been called up with the most recent 2001 camps this past year. Your 2002 is considered tops at her age and will be the benchmark set for the 1st 2002 out 3 camps this year. It will most likely start this month or next with a pool of 35+ then call backs and new additions will be added to the summer camp then and again in the Fall leading up to 2017 U15 roster. Just giving what I've seen on how the 2001's were handled.

So is will the MF 2002 team be stronger than many have not talk and complained about.

Anonymous said...

MF 2002 team should be very strong with BYC. MO taking over 2002 at PDA, they will have 25 on roster and many will go to MF to get a chance to play soccer. I would like to see both do well and give players and patents more options.

Watch for low turnout for PDA '02s. Days of 25 on a roster are old. Parents have had enough.

The NJX group, who really worried of the travel, I'd assume the reference is to.

Hey, thats the way it shold be

2 very good ECNL teams

If parents have bought into "I want (or prefer) my chld to play in the ECNL", then logistics have to then come into play

Travel time. Prefernce of coach. Of training style (likley thyey are similar). Preference of teammates. Positional preference. Preference of FAMILIES.

And making a move from one to the other cannot be questioned.

Be rivals. But pull for the other as well.

The core of the team that are 2002 are from Denville area north and west. The NPL team is mostly from there as well. Assuming they all stay, the U15 team next year will be a good one.

2:13 we are talking about the MF/PDA game because PDA lost, shut out, blanked, etc. I'm sure it was a good game but bigger news is PDA isn't going to SD at playoff time. And because they didn't score a goal all weekend going into the Jeff Cup.

Anonymous said...

4:26 Because there is not a $4000-$5000 dollar trip out west for non-ecnl teams. A trip that has no actual benefit other than a decent vacation. But hey, if you have the money, why not and its nobody else business anyway. Good luck to all heading out and hope the teams do well.

You are not allowed to play with more than 1 NPL Club in the same soccer year.
this rule is in place to preclude clubs from loading up for NPL or ECNL playoffs with players from other NPL Teams from other NPL clubs who have been eliminated from playoff competition. Players are also not allowed to play in NPL playoffs with more than 1 club in the same year.

Also said ECNL plan will play a part in decision...need to know how they will handle clubs leaving for DA (how would they replace PDA for example). Some kind of big ECNL meeting happening this week.

Yes 8:59 correct ECNL clubs will have to choose between remaining ECNL or leaving to join DA. As stated all along here the soccer Federation will not allow ECNL to compete with DA.
ECNL is dead, no way they can take on the Soccer Federation and win. All the wishful thinking and denial on this board lately was just hot air from those whose golden goose is now cooked.
The ECNL cash cow is gone fellas. Better get used to it. Parents will regain some power over the process and will no longer be at their mercy. Monopolies are never good for the consumer.

Have to be impressed with the Ukrainians coach. Comes to the Ukies when they are a good 8v8 team that beat both PF and PL. Manages to send the team in a tailspin playing with no confidence and thus insuring that better players would not try out there. Leaves for PF and convinces their best players to go along, leaving those remaining players and coach trying to repair her two years worth of damage.
We talk about parents that are toxic to teams and take players along to other clubs, this was much worse.
