Good point 11:23. When ever someone tries to make a comment about the top teams and what's going on with them. 10:25 get upset and calls people names like "immature cheerleader". It was his decision to have his daughter play for a team that is at a little lower level that cannot combine development and win at the same time. There would be more bloggers on here from other teams, but many like him are always so angry. It takes all the fun out of it and makes for a boring blog. He needs to go on the cheer leading Sponge Bob blog and lighten up a little.
Yes, yes, good point Ms Money-Penny.I am obviously jealous of you, and all you have achieved so far. And what have you attained, besides enlightenment? What has all your time and money attained? Does your daughter still enjoy playing soccer, or are you pushing her? Would she rather go to a movie with her friends, or practice in the cold rain? Would she prefer not to have injured herself trying to save an out-of-bounds pass, yes, but that is her choice, yes? I doubt that, and soon you, and your ego will be shown the door to your soccer dreams, not hers.
Good GOD, man - give it a rest
ECNL people- What's a typical total year cost at an ECNL club for a U13?
Slightly under One Billion.
Not including the uniform
Uniforms are optional, since not everyone dresses for games, its common to share uniforms, and considered uncouth to not wash said uniform, before return to the active player. Hope that was helpful to you.
if you are on this blog, this game, this age group and these clubs are a big part of your life. PDA is the real deal, and everyone wants to be a part of it. are they perfect? no. Does this age group and storm have their challenges. yes. Will they get beat? yes. Do they have to many players and 8 won't be there soon? yes. If your daughter is top 15 and you can hold out, will this be the best opportunity for her? Yes. Will people be upset going forward when they get cut and don't make the team? Yes. Will PDA cut kids they shouldn't and others not make it that should? Yes. Do I want my daughter there? No. She is not there right now, but if she was, I would try and make the sacrifice of time and money if she wanted it too. WCFC and MF have way more issues and almost every other club does too. Ecnl is the best option, but others will be good alternatives, you just have to be a great team and you will get noticed, reality is these will be fewer and far between when it matters most.
I'm not an ECNL parent, but the last couple blogs had me laughing. Good stuff guys. It was refreshing after reading Mr. Gloomy's post at 2:00. It doesn't matter what your club fees are when playing at this level. Everyone knows the cost of traveling to practice games and hotel stays, and the incredible commitment of time is the real cost. But the time I have spent with my children doing all of the above has also outweighed any cost. Whether it NPL, ECNL, PAGS or whatever. I can guarantee you that all these dads have spent more one on one time with there daughter than almost any other dad. And amazingly, even though she may chase the ball out of bounds as 2:00 stated. She still finds plenty of time for friends and doing the same thing that girls that don't play the sport do.
Same as any other top club..... Please do not kid yourself..... You want to think it is way more but , it is truly not. Move on.
My daughter did want to go to the movies once with her friends. But we made her practice out in the cold rain by herself for two hours. After she hit 10 PK's in a row in each corner, she was allowed to come in and call her friends to hear about the movie. She had a great time. 2:00 Mr. Gloomy, WHAAAAAAAAT!!!!!! You really are a very bleak, morose person.
We know - youŕe a clown. You have been noticed.
You're all too busy thinking you're comedians to actually just answer a question. Thanks anyway.
3:52, I am an NPL parent, but I will answer your question, since its common knowledge, and its really subjective, so here goes. I think the various clubs charge close to what they do now, but its the traveling and lodging part that is quite higher. You should expect to spend between $3000-8000, depending on how you travel. Good luck to you!
Of that cost, $2,000 - $2700 are annual club dues. The rest depends on how much your team travels.
4:09 I think you are about right.$2,500 Tuition$300 overnight MA + $100 Gas/Tolls$300 overnight CT + $100 Gas/Tolls$300 overnight ECNL event +100 Gas/Tolls$600 ECNL Playoffs + $100 Gas/Tollsapprox 5,000Non-ECNL team playing Jefferson, Bethesda, WAGS & Disney would cost about the same.It really comes down to what you believe is the best path for your kid.If your kid plays on a good team with year round training they will play college ball if they want that's a guarantee regardless of team.I still would prefer the ECNL option 22 games vs PDA, MF, PF, Boston, FC Stars, CT FC, FSA, WC, EMplus if Albertson, CFC Delco and FC Bucks get stronger for this age group plus you throw in 6 other ECNL games at 2 events. Quality games for my kid and if she doesn't dress plenty of family time with at least 3 overnight stays guaranteed.But I'm a spokesman for ECNL so you can disregard that last paragraph
Well said.... That is really it. Cost is a wash. I would also rather play the MUCH deeper league play then a few good tournaments any day of the week. That is the reason the coaches look there first. Solid competition every week. As we always say, the proven way.....
Keep selling guys.If you were so sure why would you have to keep repeating the mantra over and over?And no everyone does not want to play at pda regardless of what you think.What a pompous fool you are.Do you realize how ridiculous you sound.How can you make such a blanket statement as everyone wants to play there.There are HORROR STORIES right now about what is going on at Storm.More and more are seeing the greed and ridiculous oversized rosters and clearly they have overreached and there is a backlash coming..
How is this SELLING?"It really comes down to what you believe is the best path for your kid.If your kid plays on a good team with year round training they will play college ball if they want that's a guarantee regardless of team."No selling here. My opinion is just that my opinion.
Yes. Non stop crowing about this super luxury ecnl brand every age, every blog.

They are so full of themselves they don't even realize how bad they come off.I guess they invented soccer up there right?Amazing kid were getting seen and going off to play in college all these years before ecnl came along.
After MFnjx wins the weak npl league, watch the changes in the roster. Will no longer be mfnjx. Goal differential of 34?????. And that's in just 12 games. Further break down is winning each game on avg 3-0. Thanks for the challenge Mf
If you are soooo unhappy, why didn’t you leave?
You all knew you were going to be the B team before hand, didn't you? Don't complain now. Nobody is listening. By the way MF says thanks for the $$$$$$. Who benefited????
I have asked this question many times. Where do you expect the "B" team girls of MFNJX and PDA NPL North and South to go? Other than the "A" teams, where will they get better training or play for a better team? I think you will find there is no better options.
I agree with 9:43, but the problem is these parents believe their daughter should be on the ECNL team. Most will not make it. If there is a girl on the "A" team that has been with the team for the past few years, and has equal or even a slight less talent than a girl on the NPL team, she will stay on the team. The coaches already know the talent on the NJX team. If they stick together this team (and same with PDA NPL) will still be good for the next few years. Look at MF/PDA's college placement for their "B" teams over the past few years. It's pretty good.
Here we go with placement and college lists again. Most of these are pretty talented at balancing a full time commitment to school and soccer. Most of these bs college lists these clubs are promoting are not soccer commitments. They are college commitments. MF ecnl is going to be up north and they will make an exception for 2 or maybe 3 nplnjx players to practice south and just play games with ecnl. Don't forget the north now has a new indoor facility. Guess who is involved in the indoor facility.
Dude why do you talk in code?
"most of these list are college commitments, not soccer"Are you serious? If your daughter can get into a good school, do you really care if it is based on academics and not soccer? Do you realize there is no soccer life after college for 99.9% of these girls. If my daughter gets into a good school based on academics and does not make their D1 soccer team, I don't care.
I think the point was soccer clubs' often dubious implication that without them, the kid in question would not have gained admission to the institution.
MF ECNL/NENPL teams u13-18 will be based out of Raritan confirmed via email.
What sales pitch could be more preposterous than "2 or 3 NJX players will practice at Raritan and play with the Denville based ECNL Team.How exactly will that benefit those girls development?And how exactly will that work for earning playing time and starting positions? They won't even be competing against their teammates in training?They won't even be training with their own coach?
Who will be MF ecnl coach? Doesn't say jefferson coach.
I think that the MF/PDA model should work. However, these clubs are run by people trying to make a living and more players means more money to the club. Which is not what this is supposed to be about. It is really up to the league to fix this. If ECNL wants to ensure that it is about development and not about the $$$$, they should limit the # of kids that can be rostered. The concept of moving kids back and forth between NPL and ECNL is just that - a concept - because there are so many kids already Carded to each team, that movement is basically impossible. ECNL should do the following:1. Limit the Cards to 18 per team. 2. Require each carded player to get the equivalent of 6 full regular season games in terms of minutes played in each season. 3. Allow each club to have as many Developing Players - or practice players- as they can attract, but require those players to be carded to another team in the club or outside of the club. 4. Allow for up to 6 carded players on the NPL team to play with the ECNL team and vice versa. But if an if a player is switched to NPL for more than 3 games, the switch should be required to be permanent with a corresponding player moved from NPL to ECNL. By making these changes, the league would put the emphasis squarely on development of all of the club's players. This would force the ECNL coaches to be more cautious about their picks initially as they would be required to play the girls that they committed to resulting in a more stringent selection process, a better league and a better experience for the top players. Quite frankly, if there is a player a coach doesn't want to play the requisite minutes required for development, that player should not be carded to the team. This would force the ECNL teams to commit to developing their own talent for 1 year rather than waiting for the next new talent to land on their doorstep. Also, by limiting the # of rostered spots available, this would limit the mid year movement that goes on which creates instability for other teams.I think that ECNL needs to decide is it about development or it about letting the anointed few clubs make as much money as possible. As the 'top league' ECNL has the ability to enforce some modifying behavior on their member clubs. And if the clubs do not comply, they should be forced to leave. That may result in some short term upheaval, but in the longer run, they would have member clubs that are truly committed to development and the clubs that were all about big rosters/big $$$s would leave.
None of the coaches are listed on site.email confirmed to me as well, TRYOUTS will be based out of Raritan. When specifically asked about U13- stated placed to be determined.did not say it will be down at Raritan to me
Sold it all for 3 Magic Beans.Now the bill is coming due.
What incentive does the ECNL have for doing any of that? Until there is money to be made from finding and developing top female soccer players, this system seems likely to stay.
Those magic beans will be the ones practicing down south. Because of the magic. Confirmed
PDA is not MF and MF is not PDA. MF is a joke. It's always a secret. Where will ECNL practice. With PDA it is straight forward. Storm plays out of north. If you don't want to play up north then join Ajax. Until MF becomes a real club instead of a virus things will always be shady
Let's leave the magic beans out of this for a second.Is MF better staying North and fighting PDA and WC for players or are they better locking down the South.If they were in the south?MF NPL, NJ Wildcats, NJCSA, SJEB and PDA Ajax players might see this as a better option. MF would still have a strong team.MF North top players will either stay with coach and play NPL or move to PDA or WC if ECNL is their cup of tea.I don't care where MF stays since they will have a strong team regardless of location
I agree MF ECNl will be strong wherever they play but it will have consequences on NJX. If they take the top 5 girls off NJX that teams will fall apart. Nobody wants to play for the mommy coach
Coach will not take 5 girls from NJX.Wishful thinking.He knows his chemistry will be shot to heck if he does.Not buying.
The kids going to MF ECNL from MF NPL already know who they are. The problem will be the kids on the current ECNL that do not know they are losing their spot..... It is life at the top. You need to deal with it and figure out the best fit for your kid.
1:40 Wrong!They will just add them to the larger roster and increase the income from the team.It's the new scam at both ECNL clubs.
people from the North do not want to travel the south.they should add the three girls from the south to the njx team and make the South team ECNL team.would be a very formidable team.... Who coaches the South team now?
Ideal number #3 and #4 are great thoughts 11:40 and would show that ECNL truly does put development of the player first and foremost. But your talking about the possibility of a club giving up dollars for actually caring about the development of a player. Not just ECNL, but every club is motivated by getting as many of those dollars coming their way as possible.
Problem is 3 girls from south may not want to play for those NJX players. They know those group of girls are not at the level of the north with exception of 2-4 girls.PDA will get the National player soon
Is the national player that good? What town is she from
I know there are 7-8 girls from North program at US Training center. I did not see one NJX Player there
Because not every parent wants their 13 year old doing soccer 24/7. Hope you had a good orthopedic guy.....
There should be 1 team per age group, anything else is a money-grab.
3:48 I will play along - where do the extra girls go? Other teams taking spots from other kids forcing a bunch back to rec soccer? There aren't enough clubs to support all the kids that play.Would that make you happy? Who benefits from that?
3:05 so why are they taking spots from kids that want to do soccer 24/7? If soccer is not there thing move on -the sport won't hurt - let them play rec then if soccer isn't their 24/7.What no good? Clubs should tell these kids this is for kids that want to be here not for kids that want to swing a bat or shoot a ball through a hoop
Excellent point 257 re: players that were present at the US Training Center earlier this week. Group was dominated by MF & PDA ECNL players. There's reason for that.
You are right 2:57. Not one NJX player is at the U.S. Training Center and why is that? I think it is called POLITICS AS USUAL.
The kids who will be on the ECNL team were told already. Talk training centers all you want. The best talent will be playing next season. They see these kids every week. They know the ones they want playing the majority of the games for them..... They could care less about who goes to training center. They know the kids!
4:41pm- you are in for a rude awakening when your girls are not playing next season. One or two will be able to start, rest will be riding the pine
Personally I hope the North players play up North and South play down south. Would like to see how NJX would do vs those ECNL teams
4:36 ITS CALLED GIRLS A STEP BEHIND
"POLITICS AS USUAL"Dude, How does a club make money? What makes parents bring kids to a club even if the roster size is over 20?It's called NT players listing their club as PDA and MF. So you are saying MF would not send a girl to a national camp to get identified and miss out on the FREE marketing US SOCCER will do for them because of politics, so they will send a girl that's not as good?
5:31Unfortunately that's not the way it worksSoccer Nut
1:23It cant just be the coach's call - who to take for Match Fit ECNL. The club should be - and likely will be involved in evaluation and placement
PDA at it again recruiting calling girls begging to join Storm.
5:11"A step behind". Lol All players aren't equal and some kids in the MF program aren't getting a fair shake at the US Trainjng center. Fact....and that includes from both teams. IT's ALL POLITICAL
Hey "soccer nut". Your single phrase "that's not how it works" makes me want to here more. You are always the voice of consistent reason on this blog. How about giving us your overview?
You would like to see how the npl team would do against the ecnl teams? Just look at their tournament record in the past year and a half since MF took over. They might be beating up all the other clubs B teams in the npl. Tournament time is a different story. And yes the 2 or 3 beans have been promised a spot on the ecnl team since the merge. There will be no njx team after this spring season. MF says thank you who are the next sheep we can fleece. For the person that states the ecnl will be out of Raritan is confirmed, please provide proof. As njx has found out MF provides a lot of confirmations to keep stringing people along and keep cashing checks. No confirmations have proven true as of yet.
Correction. There will be an NJX team after the spring season. It will be the left overs from the current team minus those who leave realizing what just happened to them and a merging with the club's other team who will then take the NJX name. "Look, in the sky!" "It's a bird, it's a plane." It's super con!" Up, up and away!!
Match Fit NPL will still be the former NJXHave to figure some of the NPL roster comes from MF Black, from MF Blue, even from MF ECNL.This is no different than at other clubs. Kids get the chance to move up, annually. Some during the season.
NE-NPL league is a 2nd tier league for ECNL B Teams. they never planned for it to be any other way.Clubs will keep these teams there to avoid playing non-ECNL Teams and getting exposed as less than they are being sold they are.And of course they will also keep them from playing vs ECNL Teams as well.
True. And please let me know when you see the commit lists to schools on any of the academies websites from those B teams......
Look at Pda. There are many. They post the college commitments from ththe ECNL a and NPL teams.
Again MF is not PDA
Looking back at all of this what do you think NJX "Mommy Coach" is kicking her self for her decision to merge with MF?If you look at it, they were a top 5 team at the time. Won a state cup and played in top bracket at every tournament. If they stayed as NJX, would Wildcats be as strong? NJX would of been able to recruit top talent in their area. All girls that could not make the Storm would think about trying out for them. Now girls are leaving, they are such a mess.
Its not all on her. MF lied to her as well. Promises and more promises. She was also steered by the magic beans parents, because if they did not merge the beans were leaving. It benefited a couple of magic beans and mommys daughter. And of course MF.But many more promises from MF that never materialized. The old carrot and stick.
That's why you can't make decisions based on a few parents threatening to leave. She probably would have lost 1 of the 3 "magic beans", and could have replaced her. Your right, MF holds out that carrot and it looks nice and big, but she should have done her homework.
I'm not a PDA parent but they do it right. Everybody knows where The ECNL teams plays and practices out of, with MF it's a big secret.

Jealousy is the root to all evil. That is why you need to come on here and talk about players and calling them " 3 beans". If you are so tough, why don't you go up to those parents and say it to their faces. Of course not, instead you sit behind your phone and talk shit about other players and parents because you are weak. Probably, just like your daughter!
Are these 3 girls offensive or defensive players?
So, what lies did Match Fit tell NJX?Be specific or stow it.
11:17 I think you are engaging in wishful thinking, probably because your daughter is stuck in NE-NPL.but realistically look at Region 1 CL and top flight is layered with F1 Teams from recent showcase tournaments like South Shore Ma, BRYC, Wildcats, Penn Legacy.In comparison NE-NPL top teams couldn't even win 1 game in 3rd Flight at Jeff Cup. Clearly a 2nd tier level of comp in NE-NPL.
It does not matter what position these girls play. I think calling them "magic beans" is a reflection of their parents, not the girls. No one should mention names on this blog, or provide descriptions of any girls. The point is the Mommy Coach made a mistake taking her very good team to MF. Promises or no promises, she had to know the MF team from the north, who was better than hers to begin with, would be their "A" team, and her team would be a feeder team.

Only saying NE-NPL League is a weak league of ECNL club B teams.Not commenting on overall strength of other npl leagues across the country.
"....couldnt even win one game in third flight of Jeff Cup..."Man, you are showing extreme ignorance if this is how you judge a team's capabilities.
PDA took some guff about the "weak" regional they played in, losing to Sachem...I think they may just be giving it back a bit to the NPL group, as misguided as that may be.Attaching the word regional or national to any event can always bring the response of"how could it be a regional (national) if so-and-so isnt there?"
MF SituationOption 1 practice in Raritan- Lose North playersOption 2 practice in North- Lose NJX players- will keep existing south players on teamNot give any indication of practice location- Lose NJX\North players, you will be left with garbage.What do you do?
12:27 The flighting and results of NE-NPL League teams are 1 way of evaluating the strength of that league in relation to teams from other leagues in those same events, NO?
YOu must have forgotten pda results are only meaningful when they win.they list them when they win their league games in fall but tell us they are meaningless when the lose in jeff cup vs inferior comp.
No quibble with that, 1:33But you are amiss in equating 3rd flight Jeff Cup with weakness.
1:33 Yes, so is head to head. Wildcats have 1 win in U13 tournaments and lost to 3-1 to an NE NPL league team. They are 0-1 with -2 GD against NE NPL teamsWildcats are playing in an EDP league with PDA and MF's 4th/D teams for a reason.
that comment it just stupid
So which flight at Jeff is the deciding factor when it comes to weakness 1:44? Would that be the fourth or fifth flight? An argument can be made for any of them or almost any flight or league.
Go easy on the mommy coach as you call her. She didn't think this through. She didn't consider what likely would happen. She didn't think about the impact on her own daughter. She won't be the first or the last parent to play the fool.But what might be worst of all is that she went to a place where she was forced to be the B side in the age group while the A side was a team her team beat when it counted. There's no soccer discussion here. This is business and she sold her shares in her company for 2 cents on the dollar and was b-slapped into the role of the schlemiel in this picture.
Great use of word "schlemiel".
And in doing so, she had to accept an NPL schedule which was effectively a demotion in the level of the opposing teams.
But the team is as good as it has ever been. So what is the point?
you don't want a team "as good as its ever been". You want a team to be better than it was two months ago. And so on and so on
The point is, the team might not be a team in the fall, or if there is a team, it will be a shell of what it used to be.
All B teams lose players each fall. It is how you replace them is what counts. PDA seems to do Ok with this why cant MF?
Because people know going in who is PDA's "A" "B", "C" teams. Parents on this NJX team were told they could be the "A" team. And why wouldn't they believe it coming off a State cup title and the best team (GS points) in the state.
The facts are the facts. We beat up on npl B teams. When we move up we are competitive but can't win. What is going to happen to us next year? Nobody knows, but I can tell you everyone is looking except for a few who may have promises already. Playing weak teams and driving all over has done nothing for my daughters development. Earlier poster is correct, same good team, nothing has changed which is awful!!!!beat up on B teams in the Npl.
it appears that this club is in a bit of a quandary.They will split the baby in half no doubt as that is best for the club.Any other way will be too costly for a group of girls that might make them best in the region.
Complaining is getting old. Move on and you and your daughter will forget this team like they did their town team a couple of years back. Go to PDA, Wildcats or STA.
3:30 It's not just your MF NPL.the truth is Ajax and Dragons will argue but they are in the same boat.Except for each other all 3 have no real competition among those B teams as those clubs from other states don't have the depth of talent they have in NJ ecnl clubs.They would have better comp in Champions League but won't be allowed to move out of NE-NPL.
Maybe they should join EDP where I hear the competition is fierce!
Most competitive spot for all 3 of the ECNL B Teams would have been champions league.

Virginia Rush finished in 2nd in the fall and can take over 1st with a win vs Richmond Strikers.CHESAPEAKE UNITED SOCCER CLUBVIRGINIA RUSH ATHLETIC CLUBFC VIRGINIARICHMOND STRIKERS SOCCER CLUBCurrent StandingsPTS (GP)3 (1) CHURCHLAND SOCCER3 (1) CHESAPEAKE UNITED SOCCER CLUB 3 (1) VIRGINIA RUSH ATHLETIC CLUB3 (1) ANNANDALE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB 0 (0) FC VIRGINIA0 (0) NORTHERN VA SOCCER CLUB0 (0) PRINCE WILLIAM SOCCER0 (1) CHESTERFIELD UNITED FC0 (1) RICHMOND STRIKERS SOCCER CLUB0 (2) RICHMOND KICKERS

Wake up folks.... If your team is not tweaking and slightly changing every year you are NOT on a top level team. It is not about the team at that level. It is about getting the best talent on the field. Whether you like it or not that is the truth. As far as ecnl and ne npl.... I still have not seen any schedule that would be more competitive that MF NPl, the two PDA teams and Connecticut.. So honestly, why would you leave. They will only add players to these teams and move some ecnl players down each year to make room for some new ecnl blood. If your kid cannot make ecnl team this seems lije a good fit to me..... Not many non academy teams have beaten these so called B teams.....
NPL, Boycott Indiana, move the National Finals!
First score is in and it's a shocker. What?1 Match Fit Academy 01 U13 Pre-ECNL6 Boston Breakers Academy 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
Machfit not as good as they pretend to be. Lots of protection of kids that don't belong.
Nj soccer is too watered down. Too many so so teams. Too many teams with the Big A at the end of their names. Good old school yard but kickn today. I'm moving to Mass.
MF ecnl has not improved and MF npl has not improved. What does that say for MF? Should've have tried the magic beans
10:45I guess you would be opposed to them being moved to one of the other 18 states that have similar laws to the one you seem to be opposed to. Come on man this is a soccer blog if you want to get political, move over to the MSNBC website with that crap!
its very good
Wait till the season ends and see where MF ends up. All the hype because they have played more games then all the others in the league but wait and see.
Any other shockers today?
"First score is in and it's a shocker. What?"MF parent whats your point in posting the final score in such dramatic fashion? Hopefully you're one of the parents that gets moved down or moves on..
6-1 loss with a national team player, Wow. Did breakers have 5 or 6 national team players? Once again MF promotes individuals not a team. They absorb entire teams and coddle a few individuals.
its very nice
That score shows you why the ECNL a division is the toughest around.
Or how weak the match fit team actually is.6-1 says we have major holes and we just got exposed.
Wow! 6 goals allowed in 1 game!
Only see 1 quality win for MF NPL.
Did they play with a keeper, lol. Or was it 5-1 and they pulled the keeper
Why is MF NPL being brought into this conversation? Stop deflecting.
Its OK MF ecnl. MF npl got crushed by breakers in the past as well
Region 1:Greater Binghamton over Wildcats 3-0Penn Legacy over DE Rush 5-0
According to GS MF NPL has lost twice to Breakers 3-0. MF ECNL has lost by 5G twice to the Breakers. Seems like the MF NPL team plays stronger against the ECNL competition. What in the hell is MF going to do?
MF npl always played the tougher competition and top brackets until the MF merger. Now weak competition, and what good is that for development
1:31If you think 3-0 is being crushed, what do you call 6-1 & 5-0? Hater
Have to agree that MF NPL has been more competitive vs top flight teams over the past couple of years than MF ECNL Team.And they have always taken on all comers and never ducked anyone until they signed up with MF and sold out for the 3 magic beans.
Not a Wildcat parent, but I do know what its like when playing Binghampton at their place with their refs in place. Any team will be happy to come out of there with their players having most of their parts left. Heard Wildcats had to play them at 8 am in Binghampton also. Hope they return the favor at some point when Binghampton comes to their house. Binghampton has skilled physical athletes and can play the game well, its a shame that their organization (including the coach) portray such classless image of who they are.
GAME PLAYED AT 7:30AM TODAY
Now time is an excuse? Why don't you give GB credit for a solid win.
How did Storm do today?
Because MF told njx they could play in any tournaments they wanted and scrimmage anyone they wanted. Until the merge and then the rules changed. They can't play in the same tournament as the ecnl team because they might meet each other. Or they are purposely flighted lower than the ecnl team because they have npl next to the their name. Don't worry the beans will be leaving soon and its really gonna hit the fan
Match Fit resulta) Breakers were knocked down a peg on this forum, previously, which is plain sillyb) We do not know who dressed for Match Fitc) Credit Breakers. It's one game. 2 or 3 in a row would be telling, but I would expect MF to rebound nicely.
You don't know who dressed for match fit???? Really??? 6-1. Does it matter who dressed or are you saying they must've played their bench players for development? Which MF does not do. So there goes that excuse.
who dressed not the equivalent of who played.Presumption made that every player was not in attendance. Only MF folks could tell us - and I dont think they are here
Well it would have to be ecnl rostered players, no????? So it doesn't matter who played and who dressed.
Your team played, your team lost. Why do the Wildcats have to begin every loss with some excuse: too early, home refs, rough play, meaningless game...Yada, yada, yada. Take the loss and move on. And btw just because someone says "I am not a ... parent" doesn't mean anyone believes it. Funny
Did Storm play today?Looking for more ecnl scores
CFC vs Storm 2-2 and CFC dominated.
Wow MF and the mighty storm. Two of the bright stars of nj soccer. So is it that ecnl is the most competitive league or everyone is better trained than nj
Who is better? Doesn't appear any NJ team played well today. The results dont show ECNL a is weak it shows you how strong it is.
How about Continental beating FC Stars 2-1.
4:59. What did you just say? I know there is a point there somewhere.
My point, although not very eloquently, is that the ECNL league is a highly competitive league where teams should lose games no matter where they are from. The NJ teams competed extremely well in the fall and I would expect them to do so again over the entire Spring season.
How did MF NPL do today?
If the played a new npl game. I think that is a silly question then. Probably 3-0 or 4-1. As usual.
PA parent here. 4:39 Has your daughters team every played in Binghampton? It is an atmosphere that is unlike any other I have been around in 10 years of premier soccer. They have one coach behind your keeper screaming and the head coach on the sideline screaming too. The head coach also screams at the center ref the same way and gets away with it. The Binghampton girls do play hard and do deserve the wins they get. But the coaches do try to manipulate everything, including game times and locations to their advantage. Intimidation is their game and their good at it. It is a great test for teams to play there and play well under adverse conditions and it has to be looked at that way when getting ready to play them. Not an excuse for losing, but these are 12 and 13 year old girls that can be distracted by the environment presented. And it is done with a purpose.
For the love of God, it's Binghamton, not Binghampton. Reading that over and over again is making me sad.
Yeah, That was pretty stupid of me. Sorry.
Should've been MF ecnl team won again . They had another shutout 2-0. Shocker!!!

If GB really does play that way, shame on them. It's truly hard to believe about the coach behind the goal, that is illegal and will not stand at The PDA event, no way. If they try that shit, I will be all over them, trust me.
GB won 3-0. It wasnt like they won 1-0. These attacks sound like what Obama does when someone out maneuvers him. He attacks the opponent to belittle their accomplishment. Shame on those that do that.
I would love it if the GB coach acted like the wildcat coach does when hes got a shutout with a few minutes left in a game. "Cmon girls do not give up a goal. A shutout is very important to our team. DO NOT let them score." Over and over again. Nearly verbatim from his mouth in a fall game. And kept shouting it with the opposing coach 10 yards from him. Been around sports for a long time and found this one of the most childish things Ive seen. Would be stupid to hear it from a parent on the sideline let alone the coach.
While I just knocked the Wildcats for attacking GB, I will now defend them. When you are easily winning a game, a coach should pull back the offense and play defense. A 3-0 game is better for the winning team and losing team than a 6-1 game. holding the other team scoreless is not bad etiquette. Running up the score is.
GB has their remaining home games scheduled indoors at their facility. Been there, done that. HUGE advantage for them! Would advise any team playing them to at least demand to go outdoor. If you haven't played them both at their indoor facility and then also played them outdoors, you wont understand this. It's s totally different game for them.
Don't know who has a problem with GB.It's not Wildcats. Good win guys.
9:05 The score was a lot worse than 3-0. Do I need to mention he ran up the score? wasn't my point though. Karma is..
And I disagree with you point. If you are clearly outplaying and otscoring a team the only motivation for the players is to play defense. You can pull back to try not to score but you can't pull back a defense to let the other team score. I don't fault a coach for that. It may sound like poor sportsmanship to the other teams parents when he/she is instructing his team to continue to play defense but it is not wrong.
Shutouts are building blocks for a team and a point of pride for a defense collectively and defenders individually in their 1v1 matchups with opposing forwards.No different than scoring goals is for strikers.
Thanks coach. I was not making points about the score or how you adjusted your play for that game. Youre a very good team with a bunch of nice players. It was your tone and how many times it was said.
Sorry that you took it personally coach.It wasn't said for your benefit.Didn't mean to offend.

Score on PDA storm vs FSA?
CFC, BRYC, and GB are not F1 teams.
Right but PL & PF are?
Typical Wildcats, it was too early, we played indoors,etc Wildcats are an EDP team for a reason. 6-1 poor sportsmanship? Have you heard of goal differential? Sometimes teams have a bad day and it's a good opportunity for another team to improve their GD.
Didn't BRYC lost to PF at Jeff? GB last venture in tough bracket at Bethesda had them losing to BRYC and going without a win, and a -8 goal differential. I can understand World Class being there since they are proven, but CFC? At least Legacy held their own at Jeff, so they shouldn't lose ground as there is no shame in losing 1-0 to FCV. Legacy may get beat up next weekend though as they head into Mass, playing the best team in the Champions League.
That is why I hate goal differential. Tue breakers should be goals against.
GB is a classless team. Lost in overtime to them years ago parents were tools girls played dirty.
In defense of GB, they did get wins in fall tournament. With wins over Jersey Shore and Rush team. So they have won away from home.
okay, GB had 8 goals against at Bethesda. One tie and 2 losses. Finished last in their bracket.
GB just hammered the NJ NCS Champs and F1 team - Has PL ever beat them? Has PL ever beat NJ Wildcats who GB just did?
Don't worry.... EDP will still award Wildcats 6,000 GS point for second place and they will be happy.... So not the right way to look at youth soccer.
Who has GB beaten away from home?One beat down of Wildcats at home at 8:00 is a nice accomplishment. What else have they done?
6:12 PL Hater. PL and GB has tied playing 8v8 at GB's place and tied last week. Lets not play the this team beat that team so they must be better than those girls. One team does well in tournaments and plays well away from home and one doesn't. I do feel that PL does not have a big enough body of work to really know how good they are. So I can only go by tournament flight placement, and league results. GB is a good team with a philosophy that works for them. Curious though, why do you hate so many teams?
Scores from today?
Not much posted to sites. Any help?
The Hater only loves Matchfit.Word is he will soon join their ECNL team and that will be the end of their chemistry.Big mistake taking them coach.
Looks like MF lost to FC Stars 1-0.
NJC T.White 1 TSF 1
Wildcats have a lot of girls on Spring break.
