7:41Thank you. And his name is....??? :)How were turnout numbers?
I heard from an Arsenal parent about the WC vs Arsenal game at Jeff Cup as she was driving back from VA. She told me that Arsenal was no match for WC. She also said the goalie for Arsenal kept the score low and that it would have been a lot worse if she had not been there. Not sure if that's true, but I have seen Arsenal play, and I can't imagine they would be able to compete with a team that is well rounded. They are a fast team that can punish you if your defense makes mistakes, but the better teams will beat them every time
I heard same.I believe the young lady on National team was not at Jeff Cup.
Haha ha ha ha bahaha
You do realize that most of the Arsenal team is made up of 2003 players. Not bad for playing one year up.
you do realize, that if a parents have some 2003s playing on a 2002 team then they are not doing what is right for the players. This is an 2002 team for a reason, move the players to the appropriate age group
Maybe it is time they started playing with girls their own age then? Obviously the mixed age thing is not working for them.
One thing I have learned is that any given Sunday is a great point. Anything I am sure could have gone wrong in a 1-0 win or loss.
The WC game was 2-0 and should have been 6-0. Give credit where it's due the goalie on that team should look to go DA. I'm sure some team would love to have her
Is Arsenal merging with stallions? I think they have lost 1/3 of their team last few weeks.
Hard to say you should have won when you were shut out though.
Obviously all this chatter about arsenal puts them on the map. Give credit where credit is due. Girls compete with the best of them. Wcfc is a good squad. I don't know about a 6-0 verdict. That seems to be like a tall tale on a spring day on lake catching shark instead of trout
Are you talking about this team?ARSENAL PREMIER FC MAXIMUS RED
Not sure what Arsenal parent is coming on this blog and saying our team is great. You know very well our Team is falling apart fast. I'm not sure we will make it to the end of the year. I believe we have all reached our breaking point and are now looking for other options.
Do what you feel is best for your daughter. But remember each parent chooses diffeently....
Maybe Arsenal players end up at Crush-Cedar-Bergen. They could probably use 2-3 more near elite talents for their top team.
@ 2:55 and @ 3:00What age are your kids? Once they hit HS the age group designation is meaningless. Either you can play soccer with the big dogs or you can't.If little Suzie gets picked for Varsity will you make her play Freshman just because they are all the same age?
My guess is 02 player parents worried little Suzie will lose her spot to 03 player
Arsenal don't listen to this crap. PDA parent accusing teams of entering state cup of doing it only to "chase points" is ridiculous.First of all the PDA NPL Teams entered state cup, only Storm the ECNL team did not enter, so are all your own PDA Club's teams "chasing points".Competing in your state cup tournament for a state title and if you win a chance to compete in Regionals and/or Nationals, experiencing competing vs teams from across the country, travelling to distant locales with your teammates(among whom are often one or more of your best friends), and in front of your parents and families is a singular experience that will make memories that will last a lifetime for your player and your family. It's sad that the PDA parent has bought into this whole youth soccer experience as a zero sum game, only about business and getting into college, with no regard for the journey or the importance of actually enjoying this experience along with their families. I guess if your daughter gets seriously injured and can't play in college(or loses a step and can't play at the high level of college soccer you had expected) or decides she no longer has the passion, etc. you will have to consider this whole youth soccer experience as having been a waste of your time and money.This time with your daughter will pass quickly and she will soon be done with soccer and on with her real life. It's sad that you don't have the wisdom to understand until that day comes.
"zero sum game"Love itPlay on words or typo?PDA are a bunch of arrogant sobs and everyone knows it
No just a figure of speech that seems to be an accurate description of the attitude of the poster above and other ecnl parents towards their daughters youth soccer experience. Kind of like the way horse owners think of their entries in the upcoming Kentucky Derby
Agree they seem to beleive those of us whose play on NPL Teams are wasting their time playing youth soccer.In the meantime are players are drawing interest from schools attending id camps and fielding offers already.
12:35pmHigh school are we really talking about High School. High School. (Allen Iverson....)Please.... if you are at a great club the players will be playing age appropriate otherwise you are playing for a recreational team.
@ 2:47So why is DA multi year program? Shouldn't they just have a team for every age then?Should WNT be 18 and over?Good grief good soccer is good soccer. Who cares what date is on the birth certificate?
2:06 who is fielding offers from where? Check Top Drawer and see how many 02's are committed nationally right now it's not that many maybe 30. Also, I don't see PDA North NPL in state Cup so avoid a blanket statement. As far as point chasing, look at your so called top ranked got soccer teams in NJ. Most couldn't hold the cleats of the PDA teams. If your like Copa making the parents travel all over the east coast going to tournaments to make it look like your teams are good then enjoy! It's unfortunate that little Susie can't make PDA so you can be in the cool kids club! So you do what everyone else does and just bash the top club in NJ. PDA's college showcase is the biggest on the east coast and probably top 5 nationally to attend. So sorry your clubs/teams weren't invited to be seen by all the top coaches from around the country. Enjoy the juice boxes and fruit snacks and move on!
Not committed yes but drawing plenty of interest and offers from exposure at Disney and Jefferson Cup. And wrong again our team is better than all the PDA Teams other than ECNL Storm. If you play for Dragons(the only NPL Team from PDA not entered in any of the state cups) then ask yourself why your team is not entered in state cup and has no chance to advance to regionals or nationanls since your child will not be seen at ECNL events. How does that make sense for your Dragons girls? And yes our team was accepted at PDA Tournament and last month at Jefferson Cup we were flighted higher than your Dragons, Ajax or Shore Teams so wrong on all counts. And no one bashed PDA, just commented on ECNL parents seeming to knock teams participating in state cup as doing it to chase points(like there is no other reason to compete in state cups). Or was that a Dragon parent knocking teams entering state cups as point chasers because your childs team is being kept home .
Does anyone actually think all those who spew negatively up here have any impact whatsoever on the happenings of soccer for these teams, that you're convincing or persuading anyone? Its just negativity spewing that, unless you are a sick person, can not be something you truly enjoy. Actually, some people do enjoy throwing tomatoes at others for no good reason, all from behind curtain, chuckling like a bunch of school kids. Have you ever thought at the dishonor you bring your kids with all that negative attacking, and how you ruin the good charma that every kid would love to have? All to influence nothing. WC hate, PDA hate, CSA Hate, Arsenal Hate, Copa Hate... you would get the impression that some folks on here at the most miserable persons on the planet.here's an idea...try it, see how makes you feel. rather than bash someone, how about congratulate someone. say something nice, and supportive. Drama at Copa, wish them well and make a parent feel better, not worse. Someone loses a tough 1-0 game, how about some congratulations offered. It will make you feel good inside, and maybe it brings good luck to your daughter when she could use some good luck.I'm no bleeding heart sap, but sometimes i just don't know how some folks get in bed at night being so ruthlessly negative. WHile others might not know who you are, you do. Try being nice. You'll enjoy.
Alright, you win, I will try to improve my charma. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=charma
Good choice 4:49. You have made a fool of yourself quite enough with your negative and incorrect bashing.
I bet if you ask the ECNL players they would love to play for for a state cup. It's a state championship. They don't care about points or any of that crap, that's the parents. I don't know a single girl who wouldn't want the chance to prove she plays for the best team in the state.
Kids that have been playing ECNL for years don't even know what a state cup is and they don't care.
Yes they do and they know their team is better than the state champs. What they don't know is why they can't have a chance to prove it.
Not Real state champs if some of the best teams aren't playing people! Hollow state championship enjoy it!
5:06 is a Kitty Cat dad here they come! They one a game in the state cup and out of the litter box they come! You played non ECNL teams in Jeff cup and got your tails chopped off! Lets see how you do in May meowww!
Ecnl kids want to win their nationals. They know they are one of the top in state and dont need to prove it.
Truth is Wildcats played ECNL teams(Albertson and FC Virginia) in Jefferson Cup.How did PDA Dragons do in the 9th flight at Jefferson Cup?
