the PDA Guy from 11:20pm yesterday says- "Most Players in this age group could not make this PDA team... Not because this PDA team is so good . Its because the age group is lacking in Talent.""Hows that for a slap In the face.""I pretty much know the talent in this age group and besides the girls on Matchfit /PDA a couple on NJX and a couple of girls on a few other teams, not very much to go around.""The truth is most of these girls couldn't make the ECNL team at this point."So after examining his quotes above it seems if PDA guy is correct(remember he says "I pretty much know the talent in this age group") then Storm has lost to more than 1 NJ team in the last 6 months that do not have even 1 player talented enough to make the Storm Team. ???
Thanks PA guy, knew I can count on you to give your opinion hypothetically, of course. PA is the perfect example. NJ is a little different. You have two strong ECNL clubs no weak current ECNL u13 teams.NJ Wildcats just be careful. I will point you to NJ Crush. I like the team. However, this team traveled all over the place because they were able to hang. They had some girls leave and all of a sudden the travel stopped. Well it looks like it stopped. Enjoy the ride, you don't have to be better than Storm or any ECNL league unless you play them in a tournament. Win your leagues and your state cups to open opportunities. Don't get hung up on what the Jones have.PS. Just because a team is strong doesn't mean they have great players, they just play really well together and every girls understands her roll on the team to play perfect team ball. From practicing hard to possibly not playing but supporting her team. This board try to sweep these girls under the rug. But they are the glue that keeps a team together. Instead of spitting venom they embrace the TEAM concept. But yet their parents are called drunk from a club kool aide what ever the club name is.
Why is it when somebody writes they played without some top of the rotation players or the coach wanted to try something different by playing girls out of position or anything it's viewed as an excuse? Does it really bother you that much to think that they have a manual for this? Who cares, they played and they lost regardless of who played. All they were saying is that you played a different rotation of players. Why are you taking that as a negative. If you take the results so serious at u13, wouldn't you want to know which version of a team you played? or do you like forfeit wins as well instead of playing the game to collect the 3 points?
The question is, why would someone NEED to let another team know that they were at less than full strength? What is their motivation?I'll answer it. Because they want to diminish the win. They aren't handling the loss with class.
They want to let the other know that "you are not as good as you think you are".The whole thing smacks of insecurity. And like I said, it's classless.
I can see how that would piss you off. But what if it was just an fyi. If my kid's team just beat the number 1 team. I would want to know if that team was a full strength, but that's me and i guess that's why I didn't see it your way.

PA Football DadPenn Fusion to me is the best in our area, yes Penn Legacy is a very strong team. game vs Penn Fusion was even until mid way in second half and the wheels just fell off.Team I like is CFC PA. This team moves the ball. working on possession. Problem they have right now, Goalie. When their main goalie plays, they do not give up many goals at all. When 2nd goalie comes in, lets just say there is a huge difference in play. Top Goalie has so much range and she is very tall.I would go to this team!
Their line is 0 wins, 9 losses, 1 GF and 29 GA and you are calling out the second goalie? Really?
1:41, haha, that made me laugh, at you. As if that girls doesn’t already feel marginalized, you are a dick.
Thanks, 12:50. But I never see anyone actually ask about the injury status of the team they just played. If the winner asked, we could all reasonably expect to see posts discussing the loser at lesser strength. But if the loser just offers the information without being asked, it comes across as making excuses.
12:50Really?Do you ask that - "were they at full strength"? - after every win, vs any team your daughter's team beats?Very FEW teams right now are at full strength.
Thank you 1:41
1:49 if you attended any of CFC PA games, you would understand my post.I would strongly recommend CFC PA. Team will be good in a few years.
"I can see how that would piss you off. But what if it was just an fyi. If my kid's team just beat the number 1 team. I would want to know if that team was a full strength, but that's me and i guess that's why I didn't see it your way."It's not the actual "knowing" of the facts that is annoying, it is how the knowledge is gained. Having my own team's coach mention to me "That was a good win. I'd like to see how we'd do against them when they are 100% healthy" does not bother me.Reading on an anonymous blog that "the only reason we lost was because our two difference makers were hurt" is annoying and sounds like the loser is making excuses. Which of course they are. The reason people post such things is NOT through some altruistic instinct to make sure the greater public has as much information at their disposal as possible. Rather, they are doing it as damage control after a loss. The idea that those bozo parents from Team X could possibly think they are better than Team Y just drives them nuts. And even worse, the third parties who just see the score and think Team Y is not so good. Don't they realize that Team Y had Becky play center D which she never does (she's a forward for crying out loud!) and that's when Team X scored their goals.That's why people post the excuses. Not as feedback to the winning team.
CFC lost a couple years development due to some bad coaching. With the new coaches, they be respectable eventually, they'll just have to suffer through a season or two.And whether the info was accurate or not was beside the point. It's simply not cool to criticize the play of a 13 year old keeper.

Really quiet. Must mean teams who typically post either lost or didn't play.
For those that follow GS, my projection for this NPL was 7,000 but GS has a value of 4625. I'm guessing this will update itself once the league is done and points are awarded. Difference between this NPL and EDP is that EDP awarded their points already so the flight value was calculated. You learn something new every day. We won't know until after next week's game, it looks like Oakwood rescheduled today's game.New England Girls NPL Fall 2014Girls U13 NPLFlight Ranking Value: 4625 TOP 5 to determine Flight Value23 (1%) SEACOAST UNITED ELITE - DR- 01/02 (NH)35 (1%) NEFC ELITE U13 GIRLS (MA)106 (3%) OAKWOOD SC (CT)113 (3%) BAYSIDE FC BOLTS NPL RED 01/02 (RI)131 (3%) GPS-MA NPL (MA)234 AZTEC SOCCER GIRLS 01 BLACK (MA)301 YANKEE UNITED F.C.

Sounds like by EDP awarding points early they have elevated the teams in EDP standings in GS. Is this leading to why they will get 9000 points?
What happens with EDP points at the end of the season? Do they adjust or just leave as is? Teams at top of rankings just played more games. In some cases the 3rd or 4th place team has half as many games. Makes no sense.
11:27 Correct EDP teams are higher than they should be in the GS standings. I've posted on here numerous times it's leagues like this and Clubs like FSA that make GS look stupid. It's not a bad tool since they manually enter leagues and tournaments that don't use their software but if you have a club's 3rd team using the CT#1 team account and leagues awarding points two Fall seasons and 1 spring season well you can see how people make fun of it.11:29 No worries they get adjusted at the end of the season, but by awarding points mid-season every tournament these teams play in before 2013 Fall season falls off gets a GS point injection like the NJYS Fall State CUp. They have found a GS gray area and they use it to benefit their teams.Their teams have2013 Fall Points2014 Spring Points2014 Fall Points.It's crazy that they award points before the previous season falls off. But no one can say they don't take care of their teams.

EDP is all about inflating the Gs points because that is all they have to offer..... short sighted and will eventually hurt kids who think they are on a better team than they really are....
Wildcats 4 - 0 over MatchFit today.MF had some ecnl players including es IGFA player.
12:51....... so let me get this straight. if you don't play for PDA or Match Fit i'm hurting my daughter?
12:51 the undercover wildcats stalker again.
It's not about the Wildcats it is about the other teams. How is NJSCA 3rd in the State?
2:11........ i agree. Gotsoccer is not perfect but i do think if you give it time the rankings will correct themselves.
why would a pre-ecnl player play down so far. guess Matchfit really wanted to win today. sending the right message to the players. you are not good enough so we have to bring in players from other teams to try and compete. did she even make a difference?
@12:59 MF Black does not need to add their Ecnl players with Igfa girl. Stop the drama.
2:22Agreed, it just sounds better if they can say some ECNL players played in that game. It gives the game a bit more meaning for the Wildcats ( If its even the wildcats that posted that info)If results have been posted on line, I think its someone else starting trouble- if results weren't posted then its a wildcat parent.
2:32. Sadly, its the Wildcat coach posting this.
2:14 I was like you and thought the same thing. But when you have a league awarding points to teams before the league has played it's last game and Club/Team managers that alternate GS accounts either on purpose or because they have no idea what they are doing.If they did it rightFSA NAVY = Pre-ECNL = GS nat rank #50 or CT#2FSA WHITE = NPL = GS nat rank #112 or CT#5New Team = GS nat rank #274 or CT #9and these wouldn't be correct either because Navy used CT#5 and White used CT#9 and New used CT#2 messing up every flight they are in or were in.So as long as you have this kind of stuff going on GS unfortunately will always be off. It's a nice tool, I like it to compare but even then it may not be accurate
Any score for STA vs. Crush NPL game?
STA won 3-1
Nice job STA.
Nice win by Dragons over Ajax today.Another example of ajax wild inconsistency and why they are not top 4 in nj. Dragons seem to be moving up this season though.
It appears to me that PDA wants all their teams to seem good by letting the lower teams (dragons, fusion) win once in a while to move them up the standings. I'm sure Ajax will say they did not have all the players. I'm sure a few played with Storm or NPL in NY games, for one Albertson. PDA uses the same girls , who go from one team to the next depending if PDA wants to win that game, that day.

Sorry last YST Score Central update was for NorthEast NPL not New England NPL. Got lazy.
Ecnl and ne npl do not give out points for just fall and final standings are not determined until after the Spring season so you have a full year to make sure you get it right. Allows some teams room for revenge..... I like it.
11:01 PM great catch. Top club's coach posting on this blog. So unprofessional, but that's what you get with daddyball. Takes every loss personally and needs to come here to make excuses. Screenshot
hey 8:23 . If you read this blog much you would know that PDA uses same girls throughout Storm and Ajax , I just was figuring that if Dragons are do well too, they probably helped them out also. PDA club wants everyone to think ALL their teams are great by continuing to use good players on each team to bring up their standings so people want to play there and they money will continue to roll in .
Pretty much gives you an idea as to who may be behind all of the posts with inside information regarding the NJX team players...I'd be embarrassed
Tough weekend for NJCSASTA 3NJCSA 0MF 4NJCSA 3
6:55 the only thing wrong with that is that they have a playoff. SO if you go into Spring and the top 4 teams are a given with none in jeopardy of dropping, the entire build up to Spring games with all the revenge on the line is for nothing. Because they will meet for a 3rd time on a weekend to play 2 games to determine the winner. SO who ever is hot that weekend or brings in some hied help will represent the league. I HATE PLAYOFFS when you have a balanced schedule. If every team plays every team in the league home/away no need for playoffs. Best record is best team.PS. ECNL and Pre-ECNL don't give points at all. GS enters the results manually so it's up to them how many time points are awarded for these leagues.
8:32 - This is why a parent would pick PDA. If your kid is on B team Ajax or Dragons, it's good to know if your kid can help top team Storm they will use her or if your kid is bottom of the rotation on Storm they might be used to help Ajax or Dragons win a title. Comes with the territory when playing for a National Title. Much better than any club that calls up younger kids to fill spots instead of their B team players.Not for everyone I agree.
No Storm position player ever plays down.
Was Storm vs EM pre-ECNL game postponed due to the rain?
8:34am what are you referring to about NJX? They haven't been mentioned on this board as of recent.
8:53 doesn't your goalie ever "play down" ? When needed to win at all costs? Are your B teams that bad that your daughter wouldn't help out? wow what a statement "no storm position player ever plays down"
Bethesda schedule posted
09:07 not of recent, but leading up to this season this board was full of the NJX vs Jefferson (MF) Drama.. and now we know who was behind a lot of it.
No Storm "position" player plays down. Not needed by the so called "B" teams. Goalies do play down when needed because of injury.FYI. Not posted by a Storm parent.

No Boca update from EDP Open Cup yesterday? That can't be good for Boca. Of course, they've been dead quiet since the main (only?) contributer was apparently outed as the former GAKster.
So we have Wildcat Coach, Manalapan Coach and Matchfit Coach all posting on this blog.
and alot more too. You are foolish if you think otherwise
GuysReally? a Twitter account by a coach and someone types something very similar on this blog. This means its the coach.Read the Twitter account, coach put in NJCSA Elite not Galaxy. Someone on the blog types in Galaxy. Not the same.Next his twitter account, did not have an excuse. Just stated it was a very windy day. Unsure location they played at, like most places, it was windy day.I can copy a twit from a DOC from PDA or any other club, ultimately it will point towards this DOC as the poster then.I love reading this blog. Very comical
2 comments posted in succession both on the blog and on twitter at about the same time?Yeah. It's definitely the same guy. No denying it. There is always someone with the inside MF info, now we know who it is. ECNL guy.
So did MF Black team have ECNL players on team yesterday playing or not? If so, how can this possibly be justified? How do parents on the team, whose daughters lost playing time against some pretty darn good EDP competition, feel about this?
Research same times?Coaches twits at 11/2/14 at 4:53pm EST or 1:53pm PST for both it twits.Anyone knows twitter, if view from website. Time stamp is PST.Nothing matches to either of his posts.Not a fan of people trying to point fingers to people when proof is not there.Do some research
Yes they did.
12:05 Yes they did
I wish there was a way to truly verify that the ECNL players were playing down to the C team, because that would truly be outrageous.Alas, this is only an anonymous board where nothing is verifiable. The comments will be given their proper weight.
it's him without a doubt. no need for debate
the MF pre ecnl players are easily recognizable among the old Jaguar players.
plus their shirts were different
Jaguar players have already begun looking elsewhereNot happy with way things are in MF land
I think every club should only have 1 team per age group, pick the best 18 girls, and let’s go.There is something honorable about that, and if you don’t get it, sorry.
Actually I disagreewould rather see more teams, less players n a roster. When need be, move players around to play with different players.
Of course you disagree, you have an agenda, whatever that is. Its probably to make more money off of poor parents, you sir, are a virus.
I think it more on the parents to be an educated consumer.
No ECNL players were with Black team yesterday FACT. Shame on whoever stirring the pot & that is the one with the agenda.
boca score from open cup yesterday? any other open cup scores? please give us some useful info on this page, many already do, who gives a F*** if MF coach is on here, I would prefer a coach who knows something about soccer than the crazy parents we deal with on a daily basis. omg
one team per age group, no competition for playing time or position on roster, and everyone gets a participation medal and a pizza party at the end of the year... That model already exists - it's called rec or town travel.
2:22That is a blatant lie
2:33 okay so you add an extra 6 girls at an extra 12k per year? Where does that money go? More tournament? A tournament costs like 1k is your team playing 10+ tournaments? or is it going to a schaolarship fund for others or the staff's pocket?Rec ball doesn't so bad - does it? if all your kid is doing is fighting for playing time they never get.
So 36 girls try out, and instead of making an A team with 18 players and a B team with 18 players, you propose cutting the 18 B teamers? Who will then disperse to other area teams?
Let's shake it up. Give me a new top 10. Pretty far into the fall season where teams should be known.
Well to his point if only 18. Let's say PDA only takes 18 girls at a given age. That woild be special - one of a selct few that plays for the number #1 club in the country as opposed to 70+ girls at this age group.Let me guess you disagree.
2:41 - i never said it wasn't a business... it is, and the owners of these clubs, while they have a desire to put a good product on the field, are alse looking to make a profit. now forget that side of it for a minute.if your kid isn't getting playing time, or the call up to the next level team, or enough minutes on the A team, etc... then move to situation the better suits your daughter's abilities, desires and needs. you are consumer and have plenty of service providers with different models to choose from. if i like Mcdonald's, it doesn't mean that Burger King stinks. it just means that BK isn't for me.my daughter was a B team player, got the call up to the A team and is now kicking butt there. she knows that if at any point her form falters should could be sent back to the B team. that keeps her motivated to perform her best at every practice and game. for that reason i like the multiple team model. i also like mustard on my cheeseburger.
2:25Boca/SJEB game is being rescheduled due to field conditions.
2:46 yes. and that is the way it always was until very recently.all rosters had 18 max and every girl who made a team dressed out and traveled for every event.But of course that would limit the income for each team to a max of 18 dues paying families.And that would also would make it harder to scholarship players on A Team and use that inducement of a free ride to recruit them and have the dollars collected from surplus players to fund the team and keep the club and team in the black.
Its nice to see that some people get my post, its also not nice to see the money-hungry soccer industry scumbags, you know who you are.
Let's list the drawbacks to allowing players 19-36 to form a B team: 1. It makes the A team players less special.2. The club would be providing a service for which they would expect to be paid.
Probably the best explained rankings to date.... Can people tweak a bit based on allegiance? Of course. But pretty darn good based on the knowledge of all these teams by now....
yea i also agree with that list. the top 5 are definite. i don't think that much difference from 6 wildcats to 10 galaxy. bigger difference though from top 5 to rest of pack. 3 of top 5 are PDA teams & 2 are MF teams. everyone else chasing them. it is all in good competition.
4:20 full of it.
I would like to reserve judgement on wildcats being ranked number 6 at this point until after Bethesda tournament.A good showing at this tournament would propel them to as High as number 3.at the u13 age. If they smack down the match fit ecnl team then I would put them as high as number 2 for the u13 year. This is a perfect tourney for Wildcats to show what they have. Good team, only question how high should they be ranked. Perfect venue for Wildcats.
430 why or how so? because i have an opion?
List isn't bad. 1 and 2 are pretty solid in those slots. 3-6 can change monthly. 7-10 still have work to do to move up or even stay in the top 10.
YST,Good job on your top tens for both states, but no way is Atletico #2 in NYE, especially since NYSC smacked them around in NY Cup final 5-1, I see those clubs as being flopped, but good work, thanks!
How did the list get deleted?
Yes. Please re-post the list.
How is it possible to lose a post?
My bad, list was probably removed because of my tag using YST in it.I will be dropping that and just going with Scores Central. Sorry YST
I didn't save it, will repost it later need to help out with homework.PS. I must have missed that 5-1 score line between NYSC and Athletico - I will adjust with my repost.

dragons are a top 3 team in NJ? that is the biggest joke
With the pre ECNL teams stealing players from their NPL teams, how can you truly rank these teams anymore. It's disgusting. Just play with what you picked up for the season and stop worrying about winning and start worrying about developing. This is why many players are going to start losing their positions now on those 2 teams. No loyalty. Youth soccer is in a sad state. Wildcat coach has it right. Might start looking there.
Agree with the teams in top 10. 3-6 in NJ are interchangeable. Surprise is Dragons at 3 however logic seams correct. Also surprise is Wildcats at 6. What have they done to fall that far from previous lists?
2:22.... GFA girl played all 80 minutes for Jaguars this weekend. took every free kick and NEVER came off the field. that is a FACT! tell us who your tuition is paying for. Wake up people. You are not PDA
Plus I saw RAGE Girl, EM Striker and I could not believe Breakers Striker played for Black Team.
Her Dad was there also on sunday.You think he just came down to watch jaguars?
Dragons ranked over Wildcats is ludicrous.Were you at their game this summer.And that was with Wildcats playing with a couple of players borrowed from their younger club team and their new players and new keeper not even playing.Not 1 player on Dragons could start for Wildcats.
Again - dont be fooled by ECNL designationISA U13 is a better team than Albertson
we are only taking about u13 results right.If so- then I don't mind dragons being ranked high.Not sure if they should be higher than wildcats.Logically rankings should probably be something like this:PDA ECNLMatchfit ECNLWildcats or matchfit NPLPDA Dragons PDA Ajax .This makes more sense to me.This at least passes the Smell test.I would like to see Dragons play Wildctats this year
No matter how you slice it though, it does say a lot about the ECNL clubs having 5 teams in the conversation.Also says a lot about wildcats to be included in the conversation.
I don't get why the Wildcat people are so mad just reading this nonsense I understand why people hate this team.let me get this straight you won the game 4. 0 but you're unhappy about a player.I would think being the state champs you would want every team to bring their best.a few years ago our team played the dragons, and several storm players played with them, made for a much better game and the b players definitely gained from this experience in my opinion.stop being crybabies you're embarrassing yoursteam, I can't even figure out what your point is....did East Meadow win this weekend????
Every kick? Unfnbelievable. What does that say to the other players on that team and to the program. What a freaking shame.
I heard she played goalie, striker, center back, center mid field.NJ Wildcats brought ex NJX Player as well
I thought we were looking only at body of work this fall. Teams are much different than last Spring. Wildcats have not beat a top 5 team this fall. In fact you lost to the only top team you faced. AJAX. 3-1. When you beat a top 5 team you can come on here and boast. Until then accept your #6 ranking. Right now it is deserved.
Why would a Dragon player want to play for an inferior club.
Wildcats should be ranked higher. Coach is a bafoon but the girls deserve to be top five. Not sure why NJCSA Galaxy is 10. Got beat this weekend by MF Black who seems to be slowly climbing the ranks. Looked at EDP and a few bad losses but overall competing well. Its no ECNL but EDP has some pretty darn good teams. Must be the help of their ECNL team and the "GFA girl". Keep finding excuses people. Coach of black looks to have done a good job and completely revamped that lineup. Old Jaguars team was a joke and most players have departed. He obviously nows his s***.
Please do not compare EDP to ECNL NE NPL. There are like 3 good teams in EDP. How is that challenging? Rankings list is spot on for now. If #'s 5-10 BEAT some of the top teams in some tourneys, then we adjust. Just posting draws against better teams should not move you up any list....
5:25Dragons go 8thThen your ranks make some sense
We've played ECNL teams. No different than top EDP teams. Please with the don't compare. There are only 70 something ECNL clubs in the country. Get off your high horse and realize that some of the best talent isn't playing in the ECNL. I respect the ECNL and the clubs that are excepted into that league. Hats off to them. But only an extremely small percentage of girls play in that league. So what about all of the other 95% or even more that are extremely talented but don't have that label? Very easy example. Wildcats 2 PDA storm 0. Not the end of the world as most will agree but anything can happen. Im not affiliated with either club. Just one quick example
I have not seen the Dragons play but their record this fall seems pretty solid. What am I missing? Or is it that someone needs to get the conversation moved off their team. I don't remember anyone coming on here pumping up the Dragons.
NEFC B teamToms River CopaMore impressive wins...
5:25 Very fair list. Would flip #3 Dragons and #4 MF NPL. Dragons did tie them but MF NPL win 3-1 win over Ajax more impressive than Dragon 1-0 win.10:27 You are talking about U12 scores. U13 Ajax beat U13 Wildcats 3-1.
1027. No offense but this is u13. You can't possibly tell me that the wildcats beating PDA storm at u12 is going to be pinnacle of wildcat team. It's getting to point that the more it's brought up the more desperate wildcats seem for some recognition. Dragons right now seem like the better team. But wildcats may have changed for better. But fact is their u13 record doesn't show any wins against quality opponents. Let's wait to se e what happens after Bethesda That will speak volumes.
Storm wont play Wildcats again (they will make sure of it), so you have to go by that U12 score.I have no problem at all with anyone wishing to have Wildcats THIRD in NJ.Anything lower than that is balderdash.Dragons beat weaklings. PASS on that.
Bethesda will tell all about the wildcat team. Heres your chance.everything else is just talk
Bethesda a good opportunity for other NJ teams to play catch up, should Wildcats zero out (in GS points)...... which they could do even if they play half decent.Second flight (MF NPL) and third flight (Crush) could earn much needed booster points as we head toward spring
Wildcats proved they can hang with the best at WAGS Cup at U13 last month.The fact that they are top flighted in every elite tournament they enter says all that needs to be said about where those whose opinions matter rank them.
No one from Wildcats complained about mf bringing players.They can bring whoever they want from within their club.Those are the rules.Probably someone from within the mf team who was upset that those players took their daughters playing time.
Stop getting so defensive. Name the ECNL teams that you have BEATEN and we can discuss. Just playing for ties in these tourneys should move you up? How so? List how you have gotten your GS points. STA is in the same boat. You have inflated point values so you play each other and when you win you get lots of points. This is now also how you get in top flights with the inflated points. Who have you beaten in these top flights? How does all of this prove that you can BEAT better clubs? The ties prove this? Trying to understand here.....
Yes, there were and have been ECNL players playing for Jaguars.Yes, will be looking elsewhere right after this fall season is finished.
I love how the Wildcats set themselves up for the Bethesda Tournament. I am not a fan of the girls technical skills or how the play over the top from their defensive third. I personally think that their style of play is just an extremely poor way of teaching the game. They do teach first to the ball and set plays, also the art of group tackling. which of course is great, the problem I have is that the coach resorts to sending the ball over the top and not teaching the girls the skills and tactics to work the ball up the field.Playing this way is nothing more than a short cut to some wins at the early ages. Its is funny that no one ever recommends this team as a place to send their talented technical kids.They will have no trouble beating on the mid level teams come u14. but will find their marginal winning ways decreasing in the top tournaments (just like the teams that have played in the style before them)My prediction for Bethesda is 1 win 2 losses and the team goes home again.
oh yeah, and they will say but at least we competed.
Understand this Stalker.NJ Wildcats are #1 in NJ by Gotsoccer(the only rankings that carry weight and are objective) and current NJ State Champions for 2014-2015.Your opinions and rankings couldn't be more meaningless except to you.Post your BS until the cows come it won't change the reality of that.If those teams you mentioned other than Storm and MF A Team really had the better resume then they would be in the top flights and wildcats would be playing in the lower flights as they are. Don't know about you but we feel being top flighted in the top tournaments is the most important thing moving forward as the girls get into U14 and U15 and look for exposure. And regardless of what you claim you don't necessarily need to win the tournaments or even advance to prove you belong and stay top flighted in these showcases moving forward, you just need to be competitive against the top teams and Wildcats always have been.
Avoiding the question once again. Who have you beaten?? The only reason you are in those flights in GS points. Who have you beaten to get GS points? Starting to see the smoke screen yourself yet?? Good team but BY FAR not close to the top team in NJ and EVERYONE on this blog understands that except you. Many other teams and programs setting things u for U14. You guys, not so much. But keep chasing GS and we will see where it all ends up....

How is entering top flights of spirit, wags and bethesda(the only 2 tournaments wildcats entered this fall) chasing points.Are we not supposed to enter our own State Cup becuase your club didn't allow your team to enter.Your beef is with them not wildcats.You make no sense.And the only thing that matters is to BE in the top flights and be SEEN playing there next year and at U15.Arguing over why or how you got there is not going to help you or your team/players/dfaughters. You need to spend more time figuring out how to get the job done for your players instead of knocking those that are where you want your daughter and team to be. The coaches job is to get his players into the position to be seen and get exposure when it matters.That is the only thing that you will remember and the one thing that is lasting about this process.No one will remember that your team/player was #1 at U10 or U12 or why they dropped off the map. What will matter is U14 and U15 and then it's over will not matter again at U17-U18.
"The coaches job is to get his players into the position to be seen and get exposure when it matters."Wildcats- different poster here.I agree with what you are saying, getting the players to be seen at u15 and u16 is all that matters!My question to you is this- Do you think the college coaches will look favorably on your defenders kicking the ball past the midfield to your forwards on every other play. Do you think that backs will be viewed favorably by strong programs?
We all know Mid NJ and NJYS leagues...so enough said on that...First there was JAGS... Only the elite were invited and there was only 1 flight. This was many years ago. They got greedy and started building flights. Many, many flights. Mostly controlled by who else...PDA! They will deny it, but I promise you it was 100% PDA's. Back in the day, That's the tool they used to play the best teams and unknown to the teams, take their best players.Because of how watered down JAGS got, People got smart and also tired of it and a couple of clubs started EDP.... EDP was created by a group of Elite clubs in Region 1. MSSL was a big proponent in building the EDP. I believe the first season was 2010. By 2011 they had quite a few Girls and Boys teams, primarily due to the leagues success! That didnt last long on top as USClub jumped right in with their own answer by creating the RPL and NPL. Obviously the long arm of US Club soccer is much larger than a couple of clubs in Region 1. Based on the exact same structure as EDP, but with a much stronger backing, the RPL and NPL exploded due its immediate appeal to the better clubs offering "NATIONAL" tournaments. The NPL was established in 2011!ECNL is an entity in itself. Yes it is associated with USClub...smart move by USClub because there was no ELITE league for girls at the time. There was no way of crowning a National Champion at the youth level until ECNL came along. ECNL is governed by a board of directors that are elected by the teams that are in the ECNL. Allowing it to keep fresh and up-to-date. They are extremely snobby and pompous on the growth of this league. And rightfully so! If history repeats itself, and we know it does, EVERY TEAM in the United States that is offered enrollment would jump on immediately! You will NEVER see Flights in ECNL... there will only be 1 ECNL. It is also only geared towards GIRLS YOUTH SOCCER! They will not include boys, they have their own! ECNL was established in 2009!So as you can see, this conversation of EDP, RPL, NPL, ECNL is just a conversation that could have started only 3-5 years ago. Our kids were 8 years old and if this is your oldest, it was beginning of a road that I am sure none of you could have imagined where it would have taken you! Leagues and Teams are not, have not and will never be recruited. More kids are recruited to college through what we call here, "Town Team" across the nation than every elite league/team put together. Its the old tale of you are safer to fly than drive... why... because for every 1 girl on an elite team there are 1,000 that play for their town!All your daughters are awesome...and mine is too!
I am pretty sure if you ask Storm forwards or mf ecnl forwards who played against wildcats yesterday they would tell you that the wildcats defenders are about the LAST defenders out there they want to face again as they certainly couldn't penetrate wildcats back four.And yes the college coaches will certainly be coming after wildcats defenders. They are big, strong ,fast, fit, athletic, dirt tough competitors, physical tacklers and ball winners and dominant in the air both defensively and on restarts.The college coaches will come out in Droves!!!
9:53We have played your team twice.I guess we respectively disagree.Your defenders do nothing more than get rid of the ball with no purpose other than to get the ball into space as quickly as possible. They do not pass to one another or use the midfield. The team strategy is to simply kick the ball away before the opposing team can set up. They are big but not particularly fast or skilled. Kicking the ball away as fast as you can will not bring many college offers.A skilled fast back who can pass the ball with both feet and play out of back and knows when to make runs are extremely valued.As far as asking match fit or PDA as to what they think-My understanding is that both programs are much in consensus in what your girls are being taught.
So will the ECNL clubs if what you say is true.
How about if we ask AJAX? they got 3 in the net & dominated that game every which way. Oh I forgot, that was a meaningless game where you played your subs. My bad, sorry sir.
You still do not see the smoke screen? You list where you got the points but did not show the teams you beat to get the points. Once you show this you will see where the inflated points are coming from. THAT is how you have gotten into the top flights up until now. And when you are claiming what you are claiming, YES you need to beat at least one of these top teams. Ties just say you are a good team. Not a top team. Your problem with the college looks is that next year you will NOT be in these top ECNL flights and things will start to change. When it counts...... See how that is short sighted to be claiming what you are claiming?
Parents/clubs/coaches get kids noticed by colleges.You dont just get on an ECNL team and wait.
Nothing more inflated than EDP posting points now. Season not even over. Some teams have only played 3 games. Inflated GS points and makes their division seem stronger than it is.
Take EDP points away and AJAX #1 in NJ.
Now we are all understanding the smoke screen......
Your numbers may make more sense country wide but in the Northeast, they will pick ECNL clean before getting to next level. Just the way it is.... Not saying it is 100% right but it is the way it has been going.... All about playing the numbers game.
10:27That's ALL you've got, nothing more??? That ride is getting old.Ajax is over rated and everyone knows it.The only team of substance in PDA is Storm, the rest of you mean nothing to them except a salary
Its easier for PDA to talk about what "will happen" down the road, rather than what IS happening.When they are on clearly top they then shift to current events.Cheers, PDA.
ECNL is only a league.Quit acting like its the god of college recruits, its not. The best players will be identified early on in ID camps regardless of ecnl or not and be playing on national teams. Those are the kids that are going to be picked clean.your point holds little water
I love when people knock the "other" PDA teams as money grab for the club. How would you explain that at this age group, those two "other" teams are two of the top 5 teams in the state? And no crazy coaches posting on soccer blogs? And they consistently get better each year?
1056Your point is true, unfortunately 97% of the kids identified by the us club ID2 process from the 99's and 2000's are ECNL players.You can verify by going to US club websiteCheckmate!
"ECNL is only a league.Quit acting like its the god of college recruits, its not. The best players will be identified early on in ID camps regardless of ecnl or not and be playing on national teams. Those are the kids that are going to be picked clean.your point holds little water"Well, it seems to hold some water. The analysis below refutes your position. I would welcome some facts from you to refute the author's findings. http://www.d1soccerrecruiting.com/ecnl-and-the-college-recruiting-process-what-does-the-data-reveal/
10:46 ...now thats a good one. Ajax #1 in NJ. According to post, got beat a few weeks back by MF Black 4-0. Oh but it was only a scrimmage and two of the best players werent there. Ajax parents thats a slap in the face to the other 9 starters and bench players. I guess just because it wasn't a GS event it doesnt count. And with what people think of GS made it even better.
Hey 10:53That is all any team had this fall is who you have played and head to head. If AJAX or Wildcats beat a team they have a right to claim they are a better team. Not always the case but that is all you can go by. Then you look at quality of wins, then quality of losses and finally then quality of ties (I'll give this point to Wildcats). And we should only look at Fall results. Most teams have played 15 - 20 games this fall so you have a good idea where these teams stack up.
That guy is trying to fudge the numbers just like you are in that article.... Why? because he was not an ECNL guy. End this please. You have the best shot at being seen in ECNL in this area. This is not saying that others will be looked at. It is just the truth. Does not guarantee anything but it does give you the best chance. That is it.
11:10Can't have it both ways. Wildcats claim the same thing against AJAX. Does that make it a slap in the face of thier starters and bench players?
11:12. What are the quality wins?? You are equating a quality win over a team that has inflated points. Name ANY team of true substance that you have beaten this year?
"They are big, strong ,fast, fit, athletic, dirt tough competitors, physical tacklers and ball winners and dominant in the air both defensively and on restarts.The college coaches will come out in Droves!!!"Now this interests me. The old school way of US soccer on the women's side was to use our athletic advantages to just overpower the opposition.But I hear that this is not good enough anymore. The rest of the world is catching up to us because of their emphasis on technique. That team's like Japan will make us look foolish with their superior skills, and our athleticism will not matter as much.So now the US must focus on technique. I've bought into this hook, line and sinker, but really only because it is self serving: my kid is small and fast. If she were big and physical, I'd probably feel differently.In any event, my question is: is all this "technique, technique, technique" stuff bs? I mean, a team like the Wildcats is not technical, but they do not lose. Do they have the right of it?
You keep talking about quality wins and ecnl this and ecnl thatExplain to me then how PDA STORM ECNL barely got through the EDP Cup Tournament.Seriously!! All this carrying on and you can't even practice what you preach.If you are telling me that College recruits are running to these teams as the cream of the crop well then please explain how you tie STA and NON ECNL team. OH MY!!!!!
STILL have not heard of ANY of those quality wins...... Funny how that is never on your posts.
11:43 who are you referring to?
all wins are qualitywhat "quality" wins have you had?and the question is, what quality loses have you had.
