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.

Cats and PL have proven yet again they can't win a major. In F2 at least they'd have a good chance.

Bethesda ECNL and Oakwood

Those teams would have garnered the same outcome or worse.

Agreed They would've been my next choice.

The difference is, we have seen the 2 try and try again and they can't win so throw some new ones in F1!

No disrespect to PL and Wildcats of course.

Galaxy goes 0 an 2 in Flight 2 outsocred 7-1. so much for them being picked to win F2 last week on blog.

How many of these teams in flight 1 have won a major?
Other than FCV who has won about 3 in the last year.

The top ECNL do not play in near the amount of tournaments because of showcases.

Penn Fusion ECNL won Bethesda and Spirit this year.the major in this age group have all been won by the same 3 or 4 teams.

Can't say much about Cats if they didn't have their keeper. That's tough.

I would like to ask a question and hope to get an honest opinion from a parent who might understand this a little better than me...

My daughter is not at the level like many players out there but she plays on a competitive team that plays in a good edp league and may not win a lot of games but the team does compete vs most of the teams. I asked our coach why we did not attend the disney tournament during the winter and recently the jefferson cup which many of the teams we face, both attended. The answer I received shocked me, but made TOTAL sense... Many of these coaches who coach these teams go to these high level "sleep away" tournaments bc it's a vacation for the coach. Coaches don't pay for the flights, the hotel, the rental car, the food, etc. When I heard this, it made total sense. Second- our coach mention, if you are not in the top flight (8 teams max) why would you bother. Our coach has us playing scrimmages- 2 a weekend, vs boy teams that are quicker, stronger, faster, smarter and the games are 15 minutes away from my house. Wow- makes sense.

I am new to all this and when I continue to hear about teams attending all these HIGH level tournaments as such a young age, it made me mad that our team, who can compete, does not attend these type of tournaments.

My question to you parents who go along with this would be, what kool aid does the coach serve your sideline? Why travel hours and hours away for something that is pointless. If you lose ONE game in these tournaments, the chances of your team making it to the final is slim. You just spent $400 on hotels, $300 on food, $250 on gas for what? 3- 60 minute soccer games? You can find the same competition 20 minutes from your town. Now I understand that tournaments matter bc of GOTSOCCER points but does it really? Just wait until your team is U15/U16 to attend showcases and whether your team has 0 points, if you're good enough, you're good enough and will get noticed.

I hope parents get off the TOURNAMENT train and realize what you are doing. Ask your coach what is the reason of going to these tournaments at such a young age. Why you are traveling 5-8 hours away when your teams is placed in the 3rd-8th flight in the tournament. See what your coach says when you told him that you spent $2000 dollars in 3 days and there's nothing to show for it but a medal- there no coaches watching. There no scouts. 85% of the teams that attend these tournaments are in a 25 mile radius of each other.. there should be a rule. Don't travel outside your area unless you can beat everyone by 3 goals. Then you prove you're worthy and must travel to get some competition.

I'm glad my coach was able to teach me like he teaches my daughter or else I would be driving home from Virginia in 18 hours for no reason..

We do it to get away from our wife or husbands.

Anonymous said...

And to spend quality time with our daughters. We only have them 3-4 more years. You think they won't remember these tournaments? They have a blast.

Anonymous said...

Keep your money. I am sure your daughter will remember the 15 minute car ride to play the same teams over and over again.

Anonymous said...

Coming from someone who is down here now. It's about the total soccer experience and playing teams you might never play unless you do tournaments like these. For the coaches that say it's a waste aren't doing your daughter any favors.! Enjoy them now why you can and gave them every experience you can afford.

Why do people love to focus on how others spend their money?

9:45 -there tournaments are not a vacation for the coaches. Staying in a junky hotel, driving 5 plus hours, having pizza with the team for dinner.. Teams do it because the competition is better than league play and the pressure on the kids is different too. Whatever else your coach is telling you may be his opinion, but it's not gospel. And many of us who actually have gone to these tournaments do not agree. competi

I agree in part, the endless travel that some teams do chasing points is ridiculous. Having said that 1-2 tournaments that you have to stay over for is fine, and the kids love it. BTW, I know our coaches do not consider it a vacation.

As expected, FCV Elite lost 2-0 this morning to come in 2nd in their group.

They were missing 8 players from yesterday and, although the girls did not play well today, they worked very hard over the weekend and the competition was excellent. Far higher standard than the typical league play.

Bad weekend for FCV at the U13 and U14 levels

Having played both East Meadow and FCV on Saturday, I thought that FCV would win the whole thing. Was really impressed with FCV's ability to switch tatics whenever their coach wished it. They went from playing a direct attack with through balls and balls over the top, to running a possession offense in the second half.
East Meadow simply kicked our ass and the score could have been worse if it wasn't for some great saves by our keeper. But shows how little I know thinking FCV was better.
A while back I was asked what would be considered a successful weekend at Jeff and I certainly didn't think that one win and two losses would be considered "successful". But having seen our girls play FCV and EM made me realize how far we are from taking that next step and playing at that next level. That my daughter, who I consider an excellent athlete and good soccer player, has a lot of work to do if she wants to play like they do. So despite the record, the weekend was successful.
I thought one of the Wildcat parent I talked to summed it up very well. His thoughts were that our teams (Wildcats and PL) are very good one game team's. For one game on a weekend our teams have a chance to stay with the better teams and anything more than that we become very exposed, especially if there are any injuries to key positions. Where as the good ECNL teams have such depth, they can simply put another quality player in.

To the chagrin of some on here, I will accept GS 4 Life's offer and consider it a tie, (although I really made some bad picks).

Anonymous said...

Very honest analysis PL Parent. Most of the ECNL teams will have the edge because of depth of talent they attract. You and the Wildcays should be proud that you shake them up once in a while. And you are right that on any given day you could beat one of those teams. Be proud of your team and look at the exposure and experience they received.

What's up with MatchFit. Gotsoccer shows "4" teams. NE NPL has 22 players. They played 2 fall league games and 2 tournaments totaling 6 games. All U14 players play middle school but that can't be the reason for such a limited match schedule. You have 22 players!!

The MF NE NPL team shows 9 players but that appears to be players from other MF teams.

The MF ECNL team shows 20 players and they show playing 6 fall games within two tournaments.

The MF NPL Black team looks like another one of those affiliate teams. They have 21 players and play in events like the Parsippany Pride tournament against teams rate in the 50-100s.

Over 60 kids paying for what? When do they play games? And when they play and show up with 20 kids, how much time on the ball can any one kid have? Just sayin'.

The post has merit and it does not appear to be about gotsoccer but instead about the volume of players and the lack of volume of games. That is not a gotsoccer problem. That's a player's getting their playing time and parents getting their moneys worth problem.

This site talks about padded rosters from MF and PDA with 25+ on teams, but I saw a PDA team this weekend and they had a total of 3 subs. That doesn't seem padded. Injuries? Dropped from the travel squad? Not really that many on the team showing old listings?

MFA plays the minimal amount of games to ensure that they are able to maintain the game to practice ratio required by ECNL. Not sure that this is what ECNL had in mind - I think ECNL actually wanted clubs to practice more as opposed to play less to hit the required game to practice ratio...

But give credit where credit is due, the MFA team is good. Must be the MFA training...

Anonymous said...

Dear Readers,

After much internal examination, and profound astro-linear thought, it is my humble conclusion, that our style of play, is simply not conducive to what some soccer-people call, winning. After close examination, and continued experimentation, we cannot compete against bigger, faster, and less technical teams. I have created a small math equation that illustrates this, see below:

Speed + Size X Bad Refs. X Smaller + Skilled X Bad Coaching X Stupid same team parents = This past weekend.

I am no expert on anything, but I am a professional parent, and my kid is tired of losing, and to be honest, so am I.

I am starting a GoFundMe page soon, please contribute generously.

Acquiring a few "more aggressive" type players could also help. Is there any indication that this type player has been ignored/discarded after showing up at your tryouts?

Fine line between "technical" and "soft".

Question not results based - how many of you parents tell your kid what to do when she is playing? If you do why? I don't get it, we pay the coach to do that. Also how many of the forward parents tell their kids to take the shot when they have it? I see so many players passing up an easy goal by just passing the ball only to shoot (and most times miss the target).

Lots of pressure on our kids to play this game. When you guys throw out these stats of kids not playing anymore - what's the number 1 reason? Parents? Coach? Friends? Boyfriends?

No a shot at anyone, just curious.

I don't - I pay my money, sit my ass down and watch, sometimes I feel like a bad parent because I 'm not telling her where to look or where to move.

9:12 MF Parent here

When I read your post, I literally almost puked in my mouth. You may be the one parent that is drinking the cool aid a little too much. MF does not have any idea what the practice to game ratio is, nor do they know what it is for this team. Our team is lucky to practice once a week, once a week with just our own team. Coaches combine 2 teams every session to make it easier for them. (this is what happens when they coach just about all the teams, next year will be worse) then we just play with no instruction. Its a joke.

to play more games or tournaments, well this would mean we have to pay more money for the games and the coaches expenses. In order to add games, the coach has to be available. Well that is the big problem, they are stretched out to thin, can not do anything extra if our team wanted to.

However our team will be going to San Diego, Greer and PDA. All the parents are upset about going to Greer, I pointed this out that they MF played the role of I was not aware our team was heading out to SC. Someone had to apply?

Regardless, going back to your point they are following the practice to games ratio, please give me a break

Anonymous said...

9:57 Where does it show all of those games played for MF NE NPL? Not on GS. From the fall it shows 2 league games and 6 tournament games. In addition to old rosters are you saying that this list of games is also stale?

Gotta love the player that makes a mistake, but instead of looking over to the coach for guidance, they look for their parents and give a little shoulder shrug.

NYSC Guy.

My understanding is that you have changed coaches this year. I also am under the impression that the new coach does not play in the same possession system as the last coach. Is this not correct?


You have to have all the pieces to play a possession passing style game including a great attacking mid Center forward and two outside forwards This is where the magic happens in a possession style game.

Ask yourself-do you have the players? Outside wingers should be fast and willing to shoot. Your attacking mid and center forward have to be very skilled and have great passing ability it is the only way to penetrate the opposing teams strongest defenders. if you have these pieces in place then it's the coach. if you do not have these pieces then you will always have trouble scoring because play will be disjointed in the last third. Only you can answer these questions.

NYSC guy,
I did enjoy the weekend although it wasnt much different from yours. Not the results we were hoping for but certainly great competitive games. this is the last go around with this group as next year going to birth year the 01's will be completely different. Not sure what your club has planned but not going to worry too much about whats left for this season. Good luck

Did both Wildcats team go to Jeff Cup and finish last in their group? $35,000 collectively spent by the team's parents for the 30 girls to play 3 games each. "Not just good...good for ya!"

The Averbuch girls played hard and only had one game where they were outclassed. Your going to put down a tie against East Meadow and a one goal lost to PL in which the Wildcats out shot them? Keep your daughters rec league schedule in your pocket and save your sarcasm for some other team.

Pretty sure that was a terrible first game for EM in which Cats tied them. Consider yourself lucky you didn't play them third.

Anonymous said...

With 13 players all weekend, only 2 subs and a field player in goal Wildcats played even entire game in 1-1 tie with E. Meadow.
Actually E. Meadow was the one lucky not to lose that game as Wildcats pressed them in their end the last 15 minutes and had a few good chances to win that game late.
Would be hard to expect them to come back and play with same energy later the same day vs deep and talented FCV.

Anonymous said...

7:17 You can't have it both ways. If a team losses a close game and parents claims they had injuries, you would be the first to proclaim that every team has injuries and they need to stop making excuses. But here a team plays a great first game (with a field player as keeper) and you don't want to give them any credit. Unless your a PDA parent, you have asked yourself how your daughters team would have done against the same teams? Most likely much worse.

Picking on Wildcats is soooo 2014. Leave it alone, 7:17.

PDA (GA-1) proved to have the best defense while Cats, PL, and CASL had the worse.

Anonymous said...

If anyone should have been replaced in F1 it was CASL probably for Oakwood. Just because there are 8 teams in F1 doesn't mean all 8 have a legitimate shot at winning. 4 or 5 were there because presumably they will make for good completion for the top 3-4. No team flighted in F2 would likely have done any better than the Wildcats. Most would have been embarrassed in all 3 games.

Anonymous said...

7:54. Oakwood and Bethesda would have not only got stomped by FCV and EM, but a beat up PL squad would have run up the score on them as well. Only team that one of them might have replaced is Florida Elite (maybe).

Anonymous said...

No way CASL had a bad weekend but they are F1 worthy far more than a few others. Oakwood should get a chance at F1. We've seen some of these teams in F1 again and again and nothing!

Anonymous said...

Not saying based on their record CASL didn't deserve to be F1, just stating on this particular weekend Oakwood probably would have provided better competition. And sorry Bernie but everyone doesn't deserve a chance to be in F1. Just because because a team doesn't win F1 doesn't mean they should be replaced by some other team who also has little chance of winning just to make it "fair". BTW, are Oakwood, Bethesda, or FC Frederick going to Delco. They may have their shot at F1 teams there.

Anonymous said...

So Wildcats won 1-0 that looked like a good game that could have gone either way. My point is Wildcats have had more than a fair look in F1 and have given more than 3 goals many times - okay you have a bad game once in while. How do you know any other team would have been smoked, what makes you the expert? I agree with 8:33 if there are teams close to BRYC, PL & Wildcats they should get bumped. I guess PDA Storm proved to be stronger than people gave them credit? When a top team gives up 5 or more goals in 3 games and can't win more than 1 game they are in the wrong flight. Jefferson Cup had 17 teams like that and I'm not counting CASL 6 GA with zero wins, PL 6 GA with 1 win and NJ Wildcats 7 GA with 1 tie -that would be 20 teams. That's a major mess up. We're not rocket scientists and we called more than half of them.

Sorry let me elaborate. How would you know based on the mediocre teams you normally play? I think we will see some changes to F1 come Delco. If not, I'm sure it'll be more of the same. Packing up after game 3.

8:47 Didn't Wildcats just advance to finals of Flight 1 at the previous Major event in November at Bethesda Tournament? They played with a field player in goal this weekend and still tied EM who made the finals. Why should they be bumped? Teams like BRYC and Wildcats that have recently advanced in F1 at these major events will not be bumped.

So bump PL then who has not reached an F1 final? However they just beat you 2-1. Explain.

Wildcats had a field player in goal.

PL has beaten you three straight times and there must have been at least one time you had a "real" keeper. Your team is no different to PL than any of the other mid level teams they face and beat up on. Obviously they can't beat the top teams, but feast upon teams like 1776, Fredrick and other shitty teams, including yours. PL should never be higher than F2 from this point on and the Wildcats even lower.

8:54 no different you say?

NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH-NPL = 1 tie (-5) 7GA
NJ WILDCATS GALAXY = 0 wins (-7) 9GA

NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI 01 NPL = 1 tie (-3) 5GA

But then you want to bring down
PDA AJAX = 2 wins (+4) 3GA lost 1 game 2-1
PDA Dragons = 2 wins (+3) 1GA lost 1 game 1-0.

But if it makes you fell better -they went home with no medal.

PL has beaten the NJ Wildcats twice this year
2-1 @ Jefferson Cup
2-1 @ Spirit United

Both these teams will be F1 at Delco - look at the field of teams.

Why all the fuss? PL and many other teams will cease to exist as we know them in a few short months. With the number of court'in buggies in LANCO these days, it's a wonder PL is still functioning as a team as the players look for greener pastures.

I'll settle this. Both PL and Wildcats should be F2. Both would likely make finals and either could beat the other on a given day. Truest blog post of the day. Night all.

PL is 4-0 against the Jeff Cup F2 teams this year, out scoring them 10-0. They are not on the level of FCV, EM or PDA, but neither are ANY teams who were flighted behind them or the rest of F1 for that matter. I don't think you have a clue of how big the gap is between those 3 elite teams, the rest of F1, and then down to F2. BTW, PL played the second half of the EM game and the whole Wildcats game missing 4 starters and having only 1 sub so please stop with the missing GK. I am proud of the effort they made and hope at least FCV appreciated the competition they gave them. One more thing, how is FC Frederick who made the finals of F2 s "shitty" team. Who does your kid play for that is so much better?

Anonymous said...

9:54 You want to talk structure let's go for it pal.

approx 20 teams giving up more than 6 goals in 3 games tells me they were not placed in the correct flight. Record combined with GA defines being in the wrong flight in my opinion. You disagree? I'm not picking on the NJ Wildcats - I have no problem with them being F1

So when I said the NJ Wildcats Galaxy were in the wrong flight months ago them dropping all 3 and giving up 9 goals means jeff Cup flighted them correctly?

1776 with their 1 tie and 9GA were also in the right flight

GPS NPl struggled in their own NPL also dropped all 3 but they only gave up 7 goals -Jeff Cup got this one right also?

How about Calvert 3Ls and 8GA correct flight?

South Central Premier EDP D2 team in the fall dropped all 3 with 7 GA

Ukranians did okay with 2 ties but 9 GA

TSF dropped all 3 and gave up 8 GA

I called out all these teams and posted their u14 records and posted they were in the wrong flight.

FC Frederick shut me up though for making the final of a flight I said they didn't belong in. PL shut me up when i was saying they weren't a F1 team on many occasions.

10:11 never said that and never would say that - you were the one who brought them up. Just pointed out the results after you did and compared them to the NJ teams at Jeff Cup - so you think they couldn't do better than NJ Wildcats Galaxy in F2 3L 9GA? I think both of them would have done better. Why do you bring PDA B and C teams all the time? Didn't you just play in a flight with their A team? Why not bring them up?

Anonymous said...

10:17 That was a good post accompanied by some actual facts. How dare you go off and use actual facts on this board and try to offer a reasonable explanation?
A couple post that seem to have a ring of truth to them.

FCV, East Meadow and PDA are at a different level that teams like BRYC, Wildcats and PL will never find.

Dropping either BRYC, Wildcats or PL into F2 will just result in two of those three being in the finals.

FC Fredrick is better than many on here gave them credit for. And 1776 is exactly what many on here said they were.

PDA kicked ass at Jeff and Boca is now NJ's cool team to be on.

The Wildcats would like PL to stop cheating and using 11 players, especially when the Wildcats don't have a keeper.

PDA Ajax is the second best team in NJ.

Boca moms are much cuter than Wildcat moms

Only our goalie starts and plays 100% of every game. All 15 field players start some games and all play 50% or more of every game so I would consider us to have 16 "starters". However some girls start more often than not and those 4 fall into that category. But sorry, I wasn't trying to make an excuse(other than "we got beat by better teams"), I was just commenting, as I have before, everyone was down players this weekend, one goalie here, a couple injuries there. It evens out, so let it go. The best teams will still rise to the top. The rest are there to provide good competition. Unfortunately we failed to do that against EM. The biggest problem we have is not so much injuries, but lack of experience handling teams with that speed of play. Unlike ECNL teams, we only get to play teams of that caliber once every couple months No team we've faced since Spirit was on that level and that was 6 or 7 months ago. And beating up on all the EDP teams in the world doesn't prepare you to play teams like FCV or EM. For that reason I kind of wish we would have gotten to play storm as well even if it would have meant a third loss. But I think for anyone to believe a team in F2 would have fared any better than our girls did is wishful thinking. Those 3 teams are not only on a different level but I have a feeling they could have even taken it up a notch if something more important than a Jeff Cup title was on the line.

Anonymous said...

Those 3 are a level above and they were all missing multiple top players attending the US training. I would throw NEFC, MF and Boston in the mix too.

Ajax and Dragons are not at that level and should not have been F1 at Jeffcup. F2 maybe, certainly at least F3.

Jeff Cup should be embarrassed by the refs they put on the field. Teams travel far and spend a lot of money so the least they could do is to get professional refs. I have seen a lot of really bad refs in youth soccer but none worse than on the field at jeff cup. And we won our division.

That is not cool calling out pda shore, they just lost their coach as well at pda shore, not a good situation. They had heck of a time in their matches over the weekend obviously. They have to rebuild and everything is changing in summer/fall for them anyway. Boca has a few good players and of course 9th flight is no great feat. But they have beaten many of the teams in the flights above them in other tournament play and league play. We will see this spring, just started. Remember Boca is local for all these girls and relatively inexpensive to play high level soccer.

Soccer Nut,

I have thinking about your observations about my daughters team, and you are spot-on, as always. Without giving away the farm, we do struggle in the final third, as our score-lines would indicate. The coach is new, but the coach is the DOC on the girls side, and he is tough on them, but not in a nasty way, he wants them to be successful, as we all do, but he cannot play for them. The club is much more successful on the boys side, because the boys are better technically at this point than the girls, and with our style, everyone has to have the following: a great first touch, even with bouncing balls, and balls with pace, great field vision, and courage on the ball, which most girls still lack. However, the one element that I think we still need to improve on more than anything else is mental errors. Most 13 year old girls make multiple mistakes during a game, but its the players that learn from their past mistakes, and minimize reoccurrence, that we are still a work-in-progress.

Thanks for your thoughts.

4:07, hahaha, you trying to goad me into saying something stupid, I shall defer. We are 5 points out of a playoff spot, we play all 3 of the teams ahead of us, so we are not out-of-it, but your math makes me wonder if you can even spell math.

By summer they may be the only two coaches left on the girls side. Who knows how they expect to handle it.

Call or e-mail them, find out who is coaching the team that interests you.

At this age they are offering looks during practice sessions - prior to their official try out.

HUNGER, 4:11

In offensive third you need player(s) that are dying to score goals.

Too often I see the ball given up when it could be kept or a player going in way late for a ball rightfully theirs - and players unwilling to take on a defender.

This is with a good many teams.

Can you get in their heads with this?

Yeah, I think so, over time. But much of it is natural. And frankly this type of NEEDED player is so often labeled "selfish" - sadly so.

I agree, you need a player that calls for the ball, wants the ball, and will go through players to achieve her mission, its one of these break glass in case of war types.

Mass exit for players and coaches by end of season. I believe 2 already left mid season.

These coaches have a hard time attending their current training sessions and games. Next year will be a joke

Good luck to the remaining players

Only selfish if she doesn't score.She should have as many assists and goals and be smart enough to know when dump off or drop it back.way too often I see a ctr mid wide open and Stryker trying to fight thru 3 defenders.

4:26 what happens if you have to many hungry players? I have seen players take a shot every time they get the ball, the ball doesn't move shots go flying everywhere but on target. That comes from the parents telling the kid you have to be hungry because almost every time there was another pass to be made to an open player that wasn't made. Soccer is a team sport and if the player has the shot by all means take it - but they also need to know if the goalie has taken away the angle pass the ball, but they never do. Labeled as Selfish you say? Yes that's what I would call them.

@3:21 Daddy ball is still alive and well at MF this season. Any change will be a good change come August.

Careful

5:23 may have an agenda

If you believe your daughter to be good enough to challenge for an ECNL spot for Match Fit, go for it.

5:23, where are they going?

Anonymous said...

Somewhere where they will have a coach and trainer who is dedicated to their team and brings some consistency to the team in it's training and game coaching.

10:30 That's crazy they already got acceptance letters and all have signed. Hopefully ECNL doesn't find out.

@10:18 I am not the same poster as 7:48.

But it's never a good thing when a parent coaches their own kid. And at a high level.

Usually the coach's kid is a solid mid-level player and gets to play center-mid, and center-forward the entire game. Almost always better players play out of position, or sit and wait for an opportunity which they never really get.

Sorry to inform you but that certainly does not make any coach excellent.

Why would MF girls go to PDA? Didn't they just spank them last week? Why break up what can now be considered the strongest team on the east coast?

Anonymous said...

Have you seen the 2 teams play? MF plays very direct, over the top balls. They rely on certain players. PDA plays out of the back and has one of the best passing games I've seen. What type of team would you want your kid on? No my kid doesn't play PDA.

Anonymous said...

Ok Mr. non-PDA if you polled the kids on both teams after that game and asked them what team they'd rather be on I'm sure they would have all said PDA because they play out of the back better, better possession, blah blah blah. PDA had the better possession but again its all about finishing in the final third and MF can and did. Games aren't won by possession percentage. But PDA plays a hell of a game in the first and second third so everyone should jump ship.. Just wondering does your kid play for MF? I know you cant answer that. Lots of haters within

I am not sure what PDA plans to do with the new girls. Should be interesting.

8:34 Try to guess who said this about passing the ball. "I loathe all that passing for the sake of it, all that tiki taka. It's so much rubbish and has no purpose. You have to pass the ball with a clear intention, with the aim of making it into the opposition's goal. It's not about passing for the sake of it."

Anonymous said...

Sorry I offended you MF dad but like it or not PDA has the better team. Obviously. MF is ECNL's version of a kick and run team.

Anonymous said...

Haha Carolina also had the better team just tell that to the Broncos. Ironically they both have similar players

Are we talking about the same Match Fit team that stunk up the WAGS Tournament?

This is great stuff players leaving MF for PDA - then they have no right to complain if they are left off the roster for the national event this year since they made their choice to go to PDA? If i was a MF NPL player's parent I would be super happy as this opens the door for your kid to play in the premier showcase event at U14. Let people talk all the smack they want because at the end of the day they want their kid playing on a team that goes to nationals to get the exposure.

If MF ECNL will have all these open spots - that's a good thing for new players as they will join a team that just went to nationals

9:07 I'm not a MF dad, just think it's ridiculous how people equate being able to knock the ball sideways with being a good team where kids are becoming better players. The game today at the highest level is about pace and counter attacking, not sterile domination of the ball. German clubs from youth level up teach kids to get the ball forward into a scoring position in 3 or fewer passes if possible. Are they kick and run? No, it's a style of play that's highly effective.
And by the way, Pep Guardiola is the one who said passing for the sake of passing is rubbish.

Wildcats are a good team and their all about knocking people sideways.....oh wait, you said knocking the ball sideways.

10:03 this is GS4 Life not previous poster. I agree - I just think at this age kids need to know to pass the ball on the deck they need to work on their first touch every day. There is time to score in the final 3rd, my kid's not even in HS yet.

Tactical training is introduced way to early in my opinion. I almost want the kids playing free with a trainer just watching and teaching for 30 minutes.

Personally I think the players on CFC Delco, Bucks & WC are in the best positions right now. They are playing teams that are two steps ahead so they have to figure out how to get it done when the cards are stacked against you as long as they continue trying to play soccer to become better they win regardless of what the scoreboard is saying.

As a fan I'm the first one posting game results and rankings but these mean nothing in the big picture. I pay the bucks for my kid to learn the game - I sit back and watch her play - does she make mistakes yup but I know her technical ability is superior to most and it's visible. I want her making mistakes and having to look over her shoulder for playing time as this will help with her development. I don't tell her what to do on the field that's for her coach to tell her. If you think the coach isn't doing a good job we all know where the door is. If her goal is college then she has to earn that playing 60 games a season just for the sake of playing won't help. She has to do all the things that are required - practice more practice and even more practice for when she gets the opportunity to show the school she wants what she can do.

The days of coaches going to events will disappear soon. the next thing the events will do is charge more for their showcase events so they can have a video library of every game played. The coach can watch what ever they want when ever they want - we are no longer in bedrock, just my opinion.

@10:18 Not a MF parent at all just another parent looking for a team for their girl. Unfortunately what is going on at MF with Daddy ball is obvious to outsiders too.

Anonymous said...

Regardless of the result in the recent game vs PDA there are many at MF unhappy with the inconsistent training and the roulette wheel of different coach/trainers showing up for training sessions and games as well as with the move out of the shore area to Morris County facility for training. I don't think results/wins and losses are the issue going forward.

Here is what will happen at MFA next year at U15 and U16, they plug in a few players from the NPL teams and add a few new kids and they have nationally competitive teams again. It's easy to lose perspective, but kids come and go from these types of teams and rarely does it matter. Moving to Denville helps the staff because they all live in Morris or Sussex county.

I agree 12:44 look at the first 13 league games played last year vs the this year the results say it's the same team and according to this board 9 players from NJX moved to ECNL team, there is no reason to think anything will change
next season at MF if players leave, PDA on the other hand sounds like they might get some players that have parents that are very vocal if things don't go their way.

Yes, quite obvious

They are succeeding

The MJX crew was never so swift. What they choose to now do, if it be leaving a successful team, should not reflect on Match Fit.

NJX - my bad

If MF doesn't do the DA, the best girls will leave. Whether it's to PDA or whoever gets a team. It would make sense that there is a DA team up North somewhere. The attraction of just an ECNL team at MF won't be enough.

There is a WCFC dad on BOTN complaining about his daughters team, trying to blame their recent troubles on their trainer, oh if it were only that simple dude. Personally, I think Wold Class is anything but, their training is lousy, their management is terrible, and they are about to take their fields away. If I were that guy, I would look for another club.
