Where is PennFusion. FC Bucks?
That list was the non-ecnl clubs and by the looks of it those clubs look stronger than PennFusion, FC Bucks, and Continental FC. So the so called ECNL path doesn't impact PA parents as much as North Jersey, New York area.
That is a joke if you think any of those clubs are stronger then Penn Fusion. Penn Fusion took 3 girls from PL already. The word is more are to come. If this is true why would parents move girls to a lesser team? CFC has gotten a lot better and will be able to compete with everyone on that list this coming year. FC Bucks is still a work in progress.
PL lost players from their roster. Won't be surprised to see them slip out of that spot after points fall off from last summer/Fall.
Unfortunately, FC Bucks isn't a work in progress, it's a disaster. Girls couldn't wait for the season to end in order to move on.

Why would anyone be afraid to put their '01 U14 up against girls who played U14 last year?"I hope you have an '02" ?This is idiotspeak.
Agree Penn Fusion will probably be the strongest U14 team in PA with there new additions, CFC added multiple players from FC Bucks roster and also attracted some new talent as well hearing some good rumors from them lately. FC Buck's U14 is a disaster and that club will always lose kids to PDA South and North.
All the girls that I am aware of went to CFC not PDA north or south.
2:11 Heard the same thing also at least quarter of the FC Bucks girls went to CFC and they also got a few NJ girls from PDA South, that's where the interpretation of the prior post probably got mixed up. So what is happening at FC Bucks then will they have a strong enough ECNL team to compete or will they be pushed out of the bracket for year to rebuild?
many points awarded this weekend in maps caps, I am not sure, but that seems high, but I do understand how the points work, but over 4,000 points for summer tournament? wow. And again, no NJ teams in finals, so no points for NJ teams. crazy
Is it possible to get demoted from ECNL? I can't imagine if FC Bucks lost so much talent that be able to get all that talent back with the new girls coming in. Were the girls that left the team bench players? Same question about the PDA girls plus the other girls that are coming to the team.
A lot will change again next year when the age group change goes into effect. Look at your club now and look at the team your daughter will end up on. Clubs like CRUSH for example will suffer more. The current team at this age group is middle of the pack, but the teams above and below them that you will merge with are both very weak. Everyone should be evaluating what these teams will look like next year and may be a perfect time for a change. If your daughter is very strong and on the younger side of age bracket, could be a great opp to move to a stronger club or ecnl team that you thought was going to be to difficult to make as a starter.
Even with the addition of the three PL Girls, it will not give PF what they really need. Which is the ability to score against better teams. They are in dire need of a game changer offensively if they are going to step up and play withe the top ECNL clubs. Even if more girls come over from PL, I doubt if PL has such a player either. Although they do have some speed on their front line.
Folks there is an ECNL board for you guys to chat about how you stack up. The PA top 4 are the PAGS d1 top 4 non-ecnl clubs. They made the ECNL board so you guys can chat like the DA boys do. Don't you want an apples to apples compare? or are you like the NJ guys at MF and PDA they like saying they are 1 and 2 and everybody else stinks.PS. I agree the birth year change will be big - I'm just not sure if it's for only DA aka ECNL or across the board from rec to elite. Regardless for our girls it won't matter since they will be HS age and most will be playing varsity with girls older than they are.
How do you know PF's additions won't provide offensive changes for the better? You dont. No one knows what exactly to expect from MOST teams right now as many have changed in some way.
why do you guys still post on a non-ecnl board about ecnl teams? I posted why I think PFis done at this age group on the ECNL board.
Would someone please give me the URL for the ECNL board? Thank you.
What are these age changes that people are talking about? This will be for all clubs?
Oh!! well then i must rush over to the ECNL board to read your mighty opinion! Or I could watch paint dry because that would be more interesting.
Done? Get a clue man.
NJX group must be happy. MFA U14s are training out of Hazlet not Denville.
Where did you get that info that MF U14 is not in Denville? Is that all 3 clubs?
No, other two U14 teams are training in Denville, just ECNL at RHS. No idea if any of this is related to the Wharton Facility being on hold or was the plan all along. Hard to make everyone happy.
Again....People who have no clue. If you are from MF, you have known where the training was going to be for months now. You people should stop with the lies and rumors that you spread here.
Now this is getting interesting. The HolmdelNJX team which is the better team when compared with Jefferson early on becomes a MFA team a year or so after Jefferson becomes a MFA team. Then the Holmdel/MF team gets declared as the second banana when compared with the Jefferson/MF team. Then the Holmdel/MF team blows up with the mommy ball and as the better players want to leave for the top team which is the Jefferson originated team. And now the MF ECNL team that derived from Jefferson is going to be asked to drive to Hazlet?????Were this to be true, MF then has pulled a fast one on both Holmdel and Jefferson. Holmdel would have been better off staying NJX in Holmdel or as a part of the MF deal negotiating that the subsequent A side (ECNL team) be situated at Holmdel which is as good if not a better facility then Hazlet.Where is the MF ECNL team training this fall? Hazlet or up north? If Hazlet, boy oh boy those Jefferson folks will sure love driving south on the GSP during rush hour traffic. Let us not rush to judgement. Where is the MF ECNL team training this fall?
Just another day at Match Fiction.-Use ECNL players in NPL playoffs-Send NPL team to Indiana, then use the GS points earned for the ECNL team ranking.What a joke!. Thats some serious shady NJ soccer.
First of all NJX was not a better team than MF Pre ECNL. If you say it 50 times it still won't be true. And I am not from MF. you keep saying NJX should have stayed independent. They would eventually have lost the better players to MF or PDA. Then they would have nothing which is what they have now.
agree with 4:36
Did the 2 MF teams ever play head to head? Everyone wants to say who is better but to my knowledge, they never played head to head. Yes, one team may have fancy foot work and the other may not. When it all boiles down to it, MF pre has a good offense and MF NJX has a good defense. So.who knows who would win. One may play prettier than the other but it comes down to which team can score on each other. I personally, like a clean pretty game but if you can't score, what good is that. Regardless, both teams are over. Put it to bed, the players are on new teams and they should be exciting to watch. Hope it works out for them. I see a few bloggers here would like for MF to implode and crumble but those bloggers should worry about their own kids. I know it stinks that you couldn't be apart of MF but it's ok. Try to be happy at your new home!
agree with 5:35
The merge kept NJX players from PDA- truthNot that PDA and their Rolodex didnt try
The only thing this blog is convincing anyone is that NJ is, in fact, the armpit of the country.You people are insane and are ruining the game for the rest of us and our daughters, not to mention your own!
Agree with 7:56
Dear Agree guy,Thank you for finally capitalizing your comment. It makes all the difference!Ciao.
That was probably a PAE guy, NY has much respect for you psychos!You're Welcome
I have to agree, MF NPL or NJX and MF Pre ECNL is now ONE. lets see how teams meshes
2:37 They all play for the same club. Get over the players moving around. You're probably the same person that posted "The real playoffs start tomorrow" when PDA was in Indiana. Check out what NEFC did to those teams in the NPL finals and then compare their results at the National Cup. So not too sure what you meant by real playoffs..NPL 5GP, W5 D0 L0, 24 GF, 5GACUP 4GP, W3 D1 L0, 11 GF. 2GANJX did a great job in Indiana and a lot of people don't like it, i.e. all the bashing and posting about the team. Other than the first game, the girls battled to the end and never gave up, which was evident in the semis. A true testament to all who participated in those four games. A nice end to a great run. With that said, MF now has three teams and time will tell...
NPL didn't play in Indiana. MF ECNL did. That's why they got the GS points. And you got beat up like the rest of NJ against NEFC. Video to prove it.
Did your team play in Indiana?
10:38 if you knew the MF NPL team, you would NOT say it was the ECNL team on the video. Since you don't know - you just lie and try to convince yourself that you're right, when you're wrong
If so your lucky there was no video because you got blown out and they don't record the semis..
10:46- It was the ECNL team. Check their GS record.
Pictures don't lie.
Video doesn't lie
Got Soccer doesn't lie.
There were only 2 good teams (out of only 8) in Indiana. MF Ecnl and Nefc
Results don't lie. What are "the real finals"? Please? Someone?
There were two U13 brackets, not just 8 teams
8 teams. No semis only finals.
I think there was only 1 team who was a little bit out of their league at the National Cup. Each one of those teams were solid. Would all be top teams in the area. I Can't wait till next years finals to see who makes it. Ask your coach to put your team in the Club cup or the Regionals for a spot at Nationals. Let's see how good your team can do.
That's the right thing to do. Instead they'll call the tournament weak while their team is on vacation somewhere..
MF NJX/ECNL will not be there next year.
10:53, oh yes, only 2 good teams out of 8, of course, you are so right, and look, you picked the two good teams correctly, you are so good at that, so good. Thank you for clearing that up, you are a bacon of light it this muddled world of youth soccer.
MF website has the picture of the girls that played in Indiana. That was their NPL team so get over yourselves and leave them alone.
8:56 - as i said earlier, there's no disputing the pictures and video. That team held it's own against one of the best U13 teams in the country. You're right, leave them alone. Jealousy is apparent
Look at Got Soccer. The MF ECNL team played in Indiana.
Everyone can agree that the NJX team was a very good and winning team. This all came about as NJX. There is more chatting on the sidelines then can ever happen on the forum and the NJX parents and players were not looking for an academy to take them over. They were not looking for anything involving more travel and greater expenses. And there were no choruses of parents saying that they would leave unless you do a deal with MF. The only thing the parents wanted was for the parent coach to remove herself from coaching. Period. She hinted she would; then she hinted again the next year. Then she did the deal with MF BUT kept herself on the coaching sideline for 12U. This year at 13U she finally moved herself but at that point and given that she was out negotiated by MF, the team was on it's last legs.No one can predict the future but these NJX parents were talkers and none were saying that they wanted NJX to become something else. They just wanted the parent coach to remove herself at U11 and she did not at U11 or at U12 and from there, the team was handed to MF who picked the pockets (as is their right) and picked the players for their plan for another team.Anyone could have seen this coming but the person most needed to see it. Power became intoxicating. Now it and she be gone.
GS shows that NJX played Jefferson in State Cup with NJX winning 5-2. That was a long time ago but if you look at the results after that you see for the most part that they played pretty much all the same teams with both teams winning more then not. But again, and by a fair margin, NJX won more in total and they did win SC 3 times.Jefferson jumped to MF and then they were managed away from any SC play and away from any chance of playing the NJXMF team.Interesting to note today that the JeffersonMF GS page shows about 25 players including 9-10 NJX players. The NJXMF page which until recently was empty only shows 9-10 players in total. Some of these players are also shown on the JeffersonMF page. Is this an attempt to show that there is still a team in Holmdel? Half of these players are shown on the Jefferson page.Net of it is NJX won head to head; won more and now their top players are with Jefferson and there are 5 NJX kids looking for teammates.Big winner=MFNext winner=JeffersonWhat did NJX get? Lost team. Lost fees to club. Failed to stand up for itself as clearly as good if not better than Jefferson. No...they were not looking to leave. They were herded like cattle.
Perhaps the NJX parents were desperate to find a coach who could teach their children soccer, and after 2 years not even MF could accomplish that. I have a solution, Lacrosse, its like soccer, and fun!
Ha ha ha. Real ignorant and easy to hide behind an anonymous blog. I wonder how good your kid is?
Who cares if MF ECNL or MF NPL was in Indiana? (NJX ceased to exist at U-13). My guess is it was a hybrid that showed up to play which could be why the points went to MF ECNL because more than 1/2 the players are on that team going forward...They finished 2nd. Good outcome. Have not watched the video but I am guessing that they play a very similar style to the majority of the MFA academy teams as I think that MFA trainers have been training this team since U-12. IF MFA Pre-ECNL plays a different style as all of you are attesting to, perhaps it is because they have not been trained by MFA trainers but by the coach who was invested in the team... Seems like from what I am hearing on this blog, we should all figure out where he is coaching and take our girls there!
Plus, they did lot better making it to finals against far superior competition than other NJ teams did in Indiana the previous week or in WV before that.
Now even more interesting. The Jefferson coach and not a MF person has been training the team? So NJX paid for the parent and then a coach who was so-so AND was declared the B team and the Jefferson guy kept his team; got to coach and train the team AND they now get the NJX players? What next? Someone will tell us that Holmdel sends a monthly check to Jefferson for their efforts? Who is the responsible party in Holmdel?As someone else posted...where is the moving forward A team training this fall?
3:57- Believe one of the NJ teams in Indiana the previous week beat MF ECNL 3-0 to qualify?
And I believe that team lost 4-0 to NEFC who MF went into pks with at the end of ot. What's your point? PDA continues to brag about a 3-0 win against a team who had a mixed line up that weren't use to playing together. Save it already.
Plus not ECNL team, Storm went to Pks with ECNL and Black team players so what's your point?
My point is Match Fiction is a punchline. Using common opponents to judge who is a better team? Pre ECNL- Storm 2-0-1 vs MF ECNL. League Champion.PDA North 1-0-1 against MF NPL/ECNL. NENPL Undefeated League Champion.Match Fleece has no business taking shots at PDA in this age group.
For the record at the NPL finals BRSC 02 Girls Black (LA) gave up 20 goals in 3 games 11 of which came to NEFC. So NEFC never called off the dogs and just ran up the score on BRSC.if we remove the 11-2 game at the NPL FINALSNPL 4GP, W4 D0 L0, 13 GF, 3GACUP 4GP, W3 D1 L0, 11 GF. 2GALooks pretty close to me. We can swing things many ways.In one sentence you say Storm beat a mixture of ECNL and Black players with PKs but in the other sentence when the mixture of ECNL and NJX players (new ecnl team) got smoked 3-0 it was a fluke. To funny :)When it came to NorthEast Girls NPL it was a PDA year.Pre-ECNL & NPL championsCombined36 - W7 - T2 - LGF - 123GA - 33Storm head 2 head vs Match Fit W2, T1 +2Dragons head 2 head vs Match Fit W1, T1, +3Dragons also played Match Fit 2 times in tournament play, Match Fit W1, T1 +1in 3 days none of this will matter as u14 will officially start!!!!!!
And Match Fit made it to finals of an 8!team bracket. PDA made it to the semis in a 12 team bracket. Both had to play NEFC and both got outplayed by a better team. Difference is that PDA beat MF in NPL to qualify. And from the score decidedly.
For the record when did NEFC go ahead of FCV?I still like FCV better. To bad PDA doesn't believe in GS they took away a fast compare of FCV vs NEFC, if you didn't know they played in the same tournament per this board you would never know to look up the results and that NEFC actually beat FCV ( I still like FCV better)
If NEFC beat FCV and others on east coast over last 3 months hard to argue anyone is better in Spring 2015.Now U14 starts in a few days and the FC Stars Labor Day tourney has a lot of top teams. Lets see if they can keep it up.
Hey 6:31. Wasn't MF NPL in the PDA tourney? How did they do?
Did anyone see the game between Matchfit ECNL team and the PDA storm. It was a joke. Matchfit had all sorts of trouble in the first half just trying to get the ball away from storm. Finally they just decided to sit back in their part of the field and hope for a mistake so that they could quickly kick the ball forward. They were outclassed and the coach knew it.And then when you look at the score all you see is the final tie score and PKS. Im not sure if this bunch will be better than the PDA storm but they got some work to do.
Acording to GS Nefc 3 losses were from the hands of 3 ECNL teams including east meadow.. so take that from it what you will
NEFC has to be considered the best East Coast team to end U13. Won 2 National Championships in Indiana and top flight in PDA Spring tournament.U13 Top 31.NEFC2.FCV3.PDA StormGood chance all 3 will be at Stars of Mass. Will be great tournament to see some of the best teams open up their U14 season.
6:43 - do you realize how much your unfounded hatred seeps from your misguided skin? MF was outclassed? Yet it went to PK's and their coach knew it.... Stop with your incessant Match Fit bashing... Whomever you are, you are pathetic. I have asked this many times... why don't you step up, be a man, and tell us where your daughter plays?
oh 6:50.i think you have me confused with someone else i guess i am another match fit hater
How about 6:40. He/she seems like a MF hater as well. He/She knows full well MF NPL lost in a tourney that had all of its contemporaries.
Btw, the madder you get the more fun it is.
MF ECNL will become a force to be reckoned with. Will probably take time for the team to gel.
MF NPL beat Dragon in NJ Cup. please do remember this.Personally MF Pre ECNL dominated play first 2 game's of season. Including the lost 2-1. Send me your email I can send you a link to this game. Any PDA parent who was there will vouch for this. NPL finals game only had a few ecnl players. As for the coaching knowing this, give me a break. You wacth pro games all the time, if you have soccer knowledge would call this stargetic. Get used to this
That could be but judging by the video posted they will have to learn to connect passes first.
Pre ECNL connects passes as your precious Storm. NPL on the other hand, no argument from me. Unable to play correctly. Agreed
So 7:06I guess you admit that they were playing back in second half for "strategic reasons"I guess the fact that they spent the first half running and chasing had nothing to do with it.Listen , the addition of njx girls will make the team more talented but those girls are not technical and they will have to spend their time learning how to connect passes without a boot forward and the three girls that played for NPL team are the best that you have and they can start for anyone but after that , it will be a difficult task Getting this team on the same page But I am rooting for you.
I agree in that game they sat back. I would only see 2 NPL players playing with ECNL any minutes.North players are too talented. These same players finished in 3rd in Pre Ecnl, lost in finals at PDA top bracket, went undefeated in Greer.
Let's end this nonsense. Top 4 at U13. 1. Storm/MF Pre ECNL3. Dragons/ MF NPLAll 4 are/were good teams and very close in talent. Let's move on to U14.Thanks
"NPL finals game only had a few ecnl players"?There were 2 games that day one after the other one ended 2-1 and the other ended 3-0? Which one had most of the ecnl players?
Which one had the best ECNL girls?
10:23 I don't care about best - they said only a "few" played in one game, well there were two games that day which one had the "most" if one had only a few? So did MF ECNL lose to Storm (A team) 2-1 (PKs) or 3-0 to Dragons (B team)?
I can shed some light here.MF parent you can validate.From what I recall, 7-8 ecnl players played vs STORM along with 5-6 Black players.2 ecnl players played with NPL.From what I recall, ECNL had injuries that caused that many Black players to play
ECNL team lost in PKsNow 7-9 MF NPL players join them (depending on what reports you believe)Who leaves, from MF ECNL (Jeffereson)?I do not knowBy the way, the PK game was even. Just different in styles.
The 2 what you'd call "best" Match Fit players did not play in the PK game.I guess those were the 2 that were with the other squad, looking to qualify.But those 2 were not in Indiana, as far as I can tell.
Yes I agree different styles.One style played this is my ball and you can't have it, while other style realized that if they kept chasing they would have no chance and be tired out -So they waited in their own half to see if one team would lose the ball and then quickly try to lob it over to one lone striker waiting by the half line.I saw the game because my daughter played in an earlier game. it was not hard to see that one team had a hard time trying to possess the ball.Even at that the pda team could not capitalize so kudus to matchfit fot keeping them out of their goal.
You have to be extremely skillful as a team to do that to another good ECNL team
11:29 I agree with you 100 %. PDA had a very hard getting any scoring chances. Now to a PDA parent, you see the game and feel like your team had decent possesion but hard getting scoring chances. Now to come on blog and post how team sat back. Knock this teams play because you were very frustrated.Now Match Fit was able to get 13 years to play discipline and keep ball in front of them. Match Fit did its job and almost pulled out game with lesser players. No offense Black team players, there is a reason why you play for Black.I am impressed that Match Fit was able to pull this off. I can tell you our team can never do this, at the higher level, teams will be faced with many strategies. I finally read a post that acknowledges soccer players IQ to pull this off.
I don't think they were saying it was by choice, but rather out of necessity. Many successful teams focus on defense and use the counter attack. You have to use what is at your disposal and/or react to what the other team dictates.
Let's move on. How good are MF ECNL and NPL teams going to be this fall? PDA ECNL and NPL North and South? NJ Wildcats? STA? Any other surprises?
Those are all very good teams 801 & they all will only get better. Some moreso than others but I predict MF ECNL, PDA Storm, PDA Dragons, STA, Wildcats will all separate themselves from rest of the pack in 2015/2016.
My daughter played in the Jefferson-NJX State Cup game. NJX was better that day and more prepared than we were. After the game we overheard that 4 NJX players scored goals in the 5-2 game. We had no answer for that. We thought they were all about kicking it to their forward. She was good but we were not able to stop them from scoring from all over the field. Some advice having gone through the MatchFit program. If your daughter is not on the top team and playing a lot, and unless you are a millionaire and with a chauffeur, you are better off playing locally and where you play a lot. Remember that there is no such thing as an academy on the girls side. And Match Fit has distanced themselves from the boys academy side.We knew then at U10 we were heading to MatchFit and we went in with eyes wide open. Not to say good or bad but know that many players play very little. Many players are unsure about their role and status. This is fine for professionals and college players. And if at 13 you really know that you are the "one", then maybe this works for you. But most, and I mean the vast majority leave the program and are not entirely happy about the experience. Most would have preferred we stayed Jefferson. Given the success of NJX, I'll guess they feel that way too. We too were told that we had to go to MatchFit because otherwise players would leave but in our case, no one that mattered was talking on the sidelines about leaving Jefferson. Maybe it was different at NJX. Good luck to you.
11:27This isnt what occured in the MF-PDA gameBoth teams attacked. Scoting chances were about evenAnd think, bro - take the 2 best players off any team and ask them to play their "prettiest" game.
I think the top 5 teams in NJ have been debated to death. I think most believePDA StormMF ECNLPDA NorthPDA South STAIf you take those 5 out, who's 6 thru 10?I am not familiar with the Central Jersey group. Sounders??, Medford, Boca.. are they all merged into 1 team?MF Black not a good team, but could be dangerous with ECNL players.Crush-Do they retain their good players?.TSF- Quiet team that plays good soccer.Wildcats- Will continue to try and run you over and kick it over you. PDA Shore- Can they add quality players?
Black team is a really team, 1st in EDP North.
11;51Sitting back at u13 is not a strategy at u13, it is a defense because a team cannot take the ball away from another team.This is not USA against Germany. whereby the USA is sitting back to keep the game close against a superior side. This is Youth soccer and any coach that sits their team back at this age knows that they have no chance against the other side unless they shrink the field.Nice try though with the strategy thing. As far as not having your two best players, i think, it would have been a better game and perhaps match fit would have gotten their victory they so desperately seek over this team but your organization decided to play fast and loose with the rules and came up snake eyes for both teams.
11:15 at U13 is it a strategy. Likes many coaches at this age changes formation and tactics bast upon opponents. If your does not, we'll I would question your program
Ever ask yourselff why this team had to employ that "strategy"?Why we played differently against this team than all others?
I guess you don't have a good coach if you just ask that question
Finally someone hit the nail on the head. Teams play kick and run because the coach allows them to play that way. Do not tell me Njx has no skills. I have been watching these girls for years and I know they have plenty of skills.. Have you ever watch them indoors or when they have a big lead on another team and they play keep away. Very good passing team and will have no problem fitting into match fit ECNL program,. That is with the right coach who demands this type of play.
10:28 - I don't know if Match Fit ME NPL was omitted on purpose or not... Common sense would say that that team consisting of ECNL, some MF Black, and several new players, in the Match Fit world should complete very favorably to PDA Dragons, STA, etc... I am not sure you could keep them out of any top 5 list...
Yes they were. Gotta walk before you can run.
1:40 in most situations that would be the case. This team so many bad habits, several players may never be able to change
I'm sorry to say but plenty of the Mf/npl players on new ecnl team will. E pulling splinters from their shorts this season.
I expect the MFA team in the NENPL to be very competitive. Talented team with a good coach. Team chemistry should be excellent.
The video speaks volumes for NJX team. It was the coach.
3:01I think you mean Match Fit in the NYCSL NPLWhat team's coach is taking the NPL team?- Question to all:Do we expect Match Fit ECNL points to be combined with the NJX points before fall begins? This would put MF top 2 in the state, where they belong, really.
Anybody want to buy some got soccer points I'm selling some extras since they mean NOTHING!!!
Arent yours to sell, are they, smart guy?When you are TWELFTH, I agree - points not very important (tell yourself what you need to)
3:47 Expect a call from MF and the Wildcats.Not familiar with the new MF NE NPL team. My understanding is that MF took all the good players from pre ECNL (10) and NJX (9). I tried to find Fall and Spring SC results, but couldn't. Is this a new team that is now playing for MF?
2:17 - Senseless, you have no clue - the same applies to every team... unless you happen to know every starting player on every roster.Sorry to say but your opinion has no value to anyone that has interest in U14G soccer in this area, unless you have that kind of knowledge. If you do, then I stand corrected.

3:27, no I mean the NENPL team which is a mix of kids I believe, but I would assume a lot of the MF Black team and that coach. The NYCSL team is I'd assume a large part of the Blue team.
Is the BLACK (for 2015-16) roster/coach considerably better than the BLUE?Dont speculate. If you know, say so. If not, no big deal - thanks
4:12, I do have the knowledge so I accept your apology. No disrespect to the new MF NENPL but it is my understanding that there has been significant changes in this team. That is why it is too soon to tell how good they will be. Just my opinion. The other teams mentioned did not have significant changes. Just my opinion.
Nutrition is a concern for these girls - dont shove it under the rugThis for all teams at this level.
5:01, there is no Black and Blue. They are NE NPL and NYCS NPL. The Northeast NPL is the better team and although both coaches are excellent, the NE team has more continuity.
It's all about the bass, about the bass, no treble??
4:11 OK so I've kept quiet since Indiana and now I have to post. I was there and I watched the NJX team all weekend. The NEC team is very good. Big,talented and explosive. But being at the game and watching it on video is different. NEFC had their way with NJX in the first half. But what I loved about the MF girls is that they never pulled off the pedal. The fact that you have the gall to say that they are big and overweight is a disgrace. NEFC hit a wall in OT And their possession went down the pooper. MF kids fought to the end and had great chances to put them away. Your an idiot for posting they had better fitness. MF girls deserved that game when it came to extra time and I'd be the first to say they were fortunate it was 1-0 at half. Go back to your world and stay off this blog because you really have no idea..
West Chester and CRUSA you would think those two ECNL Clubs would draw more teams to their tournaments. They also choose to compete for teams on the same weekend. Maybe they should consider consolidating into one tournament and alternate hosting each year. ;)
I think it is a disgrace to talk about girls physical characteristics. It has no place anywhere! Not appropriate and not funny. That being said I don't know how anyone who watched that video can say that MF put up a good fight. They were completely outplayed. The ball was rarely in their side of the field. The only thing NEFC did was that theyhad many scoring chances and did not capitalize. Game could have been 3-0 pretty quickly and it would have been over. However, because the didn't capitalize on the plethora of opportunities in both the 1st and 2nd half MF remained in the game. I will admit the overtime was a little more balanced but no one should say that NEFC didn't deserve to win. MF had a chance to win but they would have stolen a game that they should not have won. Remember, NEFC was a team that had played back to back tourneys being away from home for 2 weeks. Not an easy thing to do. And they did it with relative ease.
Why did NEFC have so much trouble with NYSC?
Did they need to win that game to advance?
11:06 MF played to PKs v. NEFC... Have you heard of bending, not breaking? If they won in PKs they would have absolutely deserved it. Those ladies deserve a lot better than the bashing some 'experts' here are giving them.
11:47, not sure, but perhaps NYSC is actually a pretty good team?
GS has MF ECNL losing twice to NEFC at first at PDA Tournament (results posted but no points assigned) and then at National Cup no results posted but finalist points assigned. Something weird going on herewith the PDA tournament
PDA doesn't believe in GotSoccer points and they don't need the marketing to attract quality teams to their tournament as it is an ECNL based tournament. Those people that follow GS and pound their chest are absolutely in it for the 'W'. There are to many factors out there in GS points world (Tournaments, League play) that fluctuate the order and rankings. NEFC and MF game look great from the 2nd half on well done girls.
Women have different builds and 13 year old girls have different builds and they enter into adulthood at different rates and in different ways. People have different abilities to put on muscle. Two girls on the same fitness program and diet will look different based upon their natural build. All girls need to accept their natural builds and work to be healthy and fit within the constraints of their body type. Not starve themselves to meet your "wife's view of the perfect soccer build". Being bigger doesn't mean fat. Sometimes, it means strong and muscular. Did you see fat oozing from these girls' bodies? Did you see them downing twinkies, french fries and sodas at half time? I think not! These girls are athletes. They are all beautiful, strong and healthy and they should be proud to be competing athletically at a level that most people never attain.
Those girls ran/jogged probably around 10+ miles over the spam of that weekend and training the week prior leading up to those games. To call them out of shape and fat is an absolutely un-called for and if your wife is nutritionist then I say she needs a different occupation. That was a horrible statement and I hope we figure out who you and your wife are because we will make sure to blacklist you forever.
Today is the official last day of the u13 season as well as MF NJX! I just want to congratulate all the players from NJX on their remarkable run since u8. 3 US CLUB State Cups, 1 NJYS Finalist and 1 US Club National Finalist. people may hate the way you play but you are truly the most accomplished team in this age group. Good Luck to you in the future. Shame on the blog administer for letting people post derogatory statements about 12 and 13 year old players.
All good points begging a few questions.1. Are you being ridiculous attaching MF to any of this success?2. Why would such smart people in Holmdel give away something that they built for nothing?3. What would Holmdel do differently now that you know what you know?The girls are never the issue. Mommy and MF are the issue. To give MF any credit for the success of this team is a bigger insult to the girls and this team then saying they are out of shape. For the record, I didn't think the girls looked out of shape at all in the video. But the video did show rather clearly and from the first whistle that the MF girls did not move off the ball; anticipate runs, etc. Less to do with physical fitness. More to do with soccer training and development. Let's get off the attack of the girls size or appearance. Irrelevant. Like many teams, some were in good form and others less so. But their soccer movement abilities were scarily absent. That they appeared to run harder in the extra time may be a testament to their spirit and will to win but this too had little to do with MF as these girls showed it as the post above says sine U8. After 2 years with MF training their ball movement and off ball movement and dribbling (into defenders) movement and panic under pressure were not good at all now matter where you stand on this team.
11:56 I agree, enough with the fitness (but NEFC did look quicker, just saying) Your points about off-the-ball technique is very spot-on, but they still managed to get to the cup final (perhaps they were in an easier bracket) and that is saying something. Congrats to the players!
2:49 You are mixing topics. Who knows and who cares per se about how they got there and did they play all of the tougher teams and yada yada. I am simply saying that their level of technique, ball control, interplay and movement where surprisingly low level for a finalist; a team of their reputation; girls U13...take your pick. That's all and you seem to agree. Further surprising and after 160 sessions and 14,400 minutes of training with MF(40 weeks of training X 2 years X 2 sessions per week X 90 minutes) that the team looked less than technically savvy; predictable and boring to the point of just waiting for their striker to run clear of the field and 1v0 the keeper. There was no there there. The girls seem like a group that would like to play better but they looked lost and with a one trick approach. Bang it ahead and the rush a few forward.
9:46 I agree PDA doesn't believe in GS.Some Facts to support this.120 - PDA Spring Kickoff 2015228 - PDA Spring Kickoff 2014206 - PDA Spring Kickoff 2013approx 100 less teams played in this year's tournament.at $700 per team that's $70,000 they gave up and chances are it might be even more next season. Of the teams that played there will be a few that don't play because no GS points will be awarded.So I agree ,those people that follow GS that are in it for the W cost PDA approx 70k by not showing up to their non-GS event.Good for them!!!
341 Your forgetting Spring Kickoff are for U13 and below, PDA College Showcase draws more. They also gain revenue from 3 satellite locations now PDA South, PDA Shore, PDA Florida. So the 100 less teams is nothing and good for them for making a statement on not using GS points.
347 I agree PDA tournaments draw so many quality team, even if they did award GS the 3rd and 4th brackets would obtain hefty points which will be not truly show a team's status.

4:10 first remove ECNL teams - they have their own board and will never play non-ecnl teams with ECNL League game rules/lineups.No Oakwood from CT?
There is no MF NENPL
It looks like there is a MF NE NPL & MF NY NPL.Posters like to kill Match Fit - but if their North East and NY NPL teams somehow manage to win their leagues both will go to the NPL finals that's something Dragons and Ajax can't say as they will battle each other for one spot.
Don’t worry, it won’t happen. Any more fantasies for the group?
You forget MF Blue or NY NPL has two shots to qualify NYCSL NPL and NPL Crossover Cup and according to this board MF Black or NE NPL crushed Ajax 4-0 and lost to Storm on PKs if any of that is true I give them the benefit of doubttop 5 GS rankings for the NON-ECNL teams by league as of todayNational League (projected 10,000)GS#1 PSG MI Gators 02 Orange (MI)GS#6 South Shore Select Elite (MA)GS#11 Cincinnati United CUP Gold (OH-S)GS#17 TFA Elite 01 (OH-S)GS#25 FC Frederick 01 (MD)New York Club Soccer League (projected 7,650)GS#8 STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01GS#27 NEW YORK SC G01GS#35 NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI 01 NPLGS#115 MANHATTAN SC G01 PRIDE NPLGS#156 MASSAPEQUA NPL LIL' ROWDIESNew England Premier League(projected flight 7,150)GS#2 NEFC ELITE U14 GIRLSGS#60 GPS-MA NPL GIRLS 01/02GS#77 SEACOAST UNITED ELITE -CS- 01/02GS#80 OAKWOOD SCGS#157 YANKEE UNITED F.C.

5:47 - "That won't happen" - You sound like a gas station attendant that says: "You're oil in fine"You have no clue... Do yourself a favor and be quiet until you have ANYTHING intelligent to say... Right now, you sound like someone who got hit in the head with a anvil.
Anything can happen. But those teams need to improve over last season pretty significantly to accomplish that.
Wont happen - the dude is rightMF at best 3rd/4th in NYCSL
5:42- Good point. Then MF can send their ECNL players to play in those playoff games.MF has proven to be very smart.
Why not? PDA did/does this as well

Does anyone now how the Super Club model fits in?Is EDP still NPL?Are Super Clubs part of NPL
What the hell is Super Club?NPL seems to be taking as many teams as want to participate, creating new divisions when necessary
You kid does't play on one of these EDP clubs obviously.Girls Clubs:1*** Alleycats2 Beachside SC3 Bethesda SC4*** FC Copa5 FSA FC6 HMMS SC7*** Jersey United8*** Lehigh Valley United9*** Maryland Rush10*** NJCSA11*** New Jersey Rush12*** New Jersey Wildcats13 PDA Shore14 PSC Coppa15 Pipeline SC16 Rage SC17 Soccer Association of Columbia18*** South Jersey Elite Barons19*** TSF Academy20 Ukrainian National*** 11 NPL ClubsSo my question is are the other 9 clubs now NPL clubs? or id EDP leave NPL

5:06By 2:58.EDP is one of the 16 leagues that will crown a champion ahead of the National CupIf you have other info, say so
6:00 If i had other info I would share. I'm trying to figure out how this Super Club fits in. I can't leave it up to their website admins as they still have NYSC, MSC and NJ Stallions as EDP NPL clubs.So as an outsider I'm asking EDP people the question - it's pretty straight forward just trying to gather info.With Oregon NPL out is EDP NPL in or out? They introduce Super Club model with no reference to NPL,so did they skip on NPL?PS. 2:58 and 5:06 is the same person, you friendly neighborhood GS guy.I know I'm going to add National League to my RCL,EDP and NPL posts on this board and I will continue my ECNL posts on the ECNL board. So i was trying to figure out how Super Club fits in. That's an extra 9 clubs that might be EDP NPL clubs with a bunch from PA and MD.

Slick on the move again! Off to Storm after 1 year with MF.
I always wondered why you guys gave him that name, is he just smarmy? Also, cannot say I am surprised, she is a great player ( a little small) but a great addition to PDA, good for them!I hope you have many unhappy years together!

Actually, I have legs and I use them, so if there was something going on down the block, which there isn’t, I would just walk. I have no problem going to these large tournaments, but these rinky-dink events are for non-premeir teams.
Funny that these dinky dinky tourney's are ran by ECNL club's. lolThey are tune tourney's for and good just to see what coaches have on there teams going into spirit.

Yeah, rinky-dink, and stop stealing my lines, come up with your own. No I am not the FC Stars pitchman, they don't really need one, besides Spirit is for Pennsylvania soccer, which is a cross between tailgating and bowling!
Would love to know what happened with the PF ECNL/PF NPL game
That's not good for ECNL loses to NPL team
