Brick will win Nj state cup , they have lots of experience to handle the pressure

Anonymous said...

Copa hasn't been the same since they lost several key players including their main striker and their head coach who many didn't like but the girls loved . They don't come in here any mor which speaks volumes . Too bad they could have been top3-5 I state.

7:02am. Another parent coach for NJX? = 2 mom's 2 dad's and a partridge in a pear tree. The pressure is there with ECNL and Match Fit. NJX is a down grade. The training, level of play, exposure, opportunity, recognition and future contacts if that's the plan for your child just doesn't compare. Town team. The days of parent coaching at this level is a joke. Brick is the closest to an academy level out there. This parent threesome are point chasers.

What team is this player on now with the dad who might take over as coach at NJX? Rumor has been circulating that NJX would cross over to MF anyway

Congrats to GFA for a good Jeff Cup weekend but one weekend does not make a season. Are they really still talking about beating Splash at some random indoor event. Also Splash is not playing in the PDA Spring Kick Off so if GFA was going or not they would not play. I am sure PDA will play in the ECNL College Showcase event hosted at Memorial day weekend which is a much bigger event with very strong competition and hundreds of college coaches.

Ummmm, brick is coached by a parent

Anonymous said...

nobody at igfa is talking, just some haters that want to bring negativity to a team that is doing ok and working hard.
why pda didn't invite them to play in the tournament is a mystery or maybe not but it is their tournament so they can invite who they want.
as for the showcase, some teams are really good some are not but again it is their right to invite who they want.
PDA is number one, match fit has ecnl and fantastic, Copa is still great team, wildcats are coming back freehold and brick together would be phenomenal.Stallions are fantastic and...IGFA just got a lucky day or a lucky weekend.
let's just leave at that so everybody is happy and we can go back to our practice.

I am a GFA parent and I just wanted to say that not one of the parents that I speak to is crowing right now. Are we happy that the girls won at the Jeff Cup...yes!! Have the girls been working hard and been having good results...yes!! Do we understand that these girls are just 14 years old and they have a lot more to learn and many other ups and downs coming...absolutely!! But for people to come on here and talk about the GFA girls or girls from any other teams is really sad. To be honest all of the girls that currently play in EDP, NPL or ECNL are very good players. If they were not..they would not be playing there. We should be supporting all of these girls. They work very hard and deserve our support. We will be playing NJ Crush in the State Cup on Friday...and although I will obviously be rooting for GFA that day...but I can and will respect my daughters opponent. They work just as hard and they will have parents that will be watching and enjoying the game too. This is U14 soccer...and they still play for the love of the game!! I support all of these kids!! Best of luck to all the girls for a healthy and successful spring season!! Make NJ proud!!

The Brick coach is guilty of nothing more than developing top players in the state. With our recruiting or the power of a big academy behind him.

Anonymous said...

Last time I checked JH is a volunteer coach and gives his time to these girls. true?? Give the guy a break.

Anonymous said...

Exactly.

His players love him and so do the parents. They get to be kids and highly successful soccer players.

Anonymous said...

Probably a GFA player making these ridiculous statements. One of the best in the Country?? Should be heavily favored in any game they play? There's still a team in your bracket that you've NEVER beaten. Unless they choke again, you're simply not favored over them until you prove you can beat them. They've had a good pre-season and look good so far with basically no one getting any outdoors practice time. Just leave it at that. Good luck on the season.

2:53 why you do not take some therapy classes and relax.
Lol .

Anonymous said...

Pass results do not gaurantee future outcomes which is why you play the game. So relax and let the results speak the rest is just bs. IGFA cares less about what goes on here. There interest is in development and progression. While many teams worry about what is happening now IGFA is already working on how to gear up for the fall season. Are we all lucky, maybe, but it's hard to call it luck when the results proove otherwise.

Who is the other dad coaching NJX? Last time I checked there was one.. Bending over backwards for which girl? Please tell if your going to start rumors. There is a girl on that team who has sisters on MF. What's keeping her on NJX.? Only time will tell.

Anonymous said...

GFA parents, get out of this nonsense. You know you should not be here writing or responding to these individual & subjective statements. Girls are now practicing, so let them enjoy it. The team's results should be the only source of information for any evaluation. Your comments can only hurt them so stay away as your coach directed. Let others feed themselves with their empty phrases and pointless comments. Future games/results will do all the talking. Enjoy the great time these girls have and any success or failure that comes along.

Just an FYI, those stupid got soccer rankings don't mean you are the best in the state or country. They mean you have a bunch of points nothing more.

Really funny when people post somewhat megatove things about a team their daughter is currently on.. You know who you are if you are that unhappy and it's better elsewhere .. LEAVE although you are never really happy - your long dramatic history proves itself

Anonymous said...

Points don't mean anything accept that you need them to compete in top brackets we are nonecnl and need them to compete with the NPL, ECNL teams that are not afraid to compete, win, or loose. It's just part of the story and the other half is written on the field. So knock the point system all you want and once again no one is crowing the best chant except for those who want, or had their moment in the sun. So stop hating and introduce yourself at the field we can teach you how to be humble and modest about victory and defeat. Once again we never said that we are the best in NJ, Region 1 or the nation. We are just merely pleased at how they are developing as a team and wining as a result of their hard work and the idea that they are supporting each other throughout their soccer journey. Once again when your daughter is playing against our team reach out and learn about how greatful we are because it was never easy and will it only get more challenging for them. So before judging us, get to know us then keep your negative opinions to yourself.

Iam also a GFA parent and to say that we are one of the best in the country is a joke! We are a very good team. Let's call it what it is, got soccer is telling urs that we are number 1 in NJ. With that said, I do think we are one of the top teams in the state. We played very good teams in Jeff cup and penn fusion wasn't a lucky win. We beat them pretty easily. It's not to say they are a bad team, just had a bad day. I'm proud to be on this team and winning is fun. We have an important game friday and yes I do think we are a much better team but as you all know anybody can beat anybody on any given day.

Cops lost main forward to MF ECNL, the next best forward to Stallions, and the goalkeeper to Splash. They also played the whole fall season without another two excellent attacking players who were injured. Roster is at 14 healthy at the moment.
TRUE statement regarding the former coach. Many outside copa didn't like him for whatever reason, but he was a great coach and the girls loved him and played for him. New guy doesn't seem anywhere near as good or as committed to the girls. They are 14... They feel that.

Going to be a long tough spring with more leaving in tryout season. Just shows how quickly a team can go from so much potential to implosion. If you are in a steady happy team, enjoy it. Never take it for granted. It can change in the blink of an eye.

Good luck to all this spring!

5:50 a lot of insight and inside info on Copa about players leaving and injuries and how much old coach was loved.
But you should have stopped there.you let your own love and emotion of that coach and past results cloud your view. We ll never know but given the current roster of 14, doubt the old coach would be much of an upgrade. the current coach entered into a mess. He had to change a lot. despite past results, his job is a complete rebuild and change in play. People can t accept change and again are blaming change and new coach for results.he is an excellent coach and doing a good job in teaching and developing soccer player. Doing the best with what he has been dealt. criticism of coach for current form of team is unjustified.

Anonymous said...

12:31 - If the old coach was still there, the goalie would not have gone to Splash and the forward would not have gone to Stallions - fact. Other forward was already leaving for MF but truth is keeping coach would have kept those players.

Why would they have kept a coach who did what he did? He completely embarrassed the FC Copa club. Not to mentioned putting those girls through something they shouldn't have to at this age. The guy is a complete loser.

12:31
I guess you don't really care about the former coach's integrity or honesty as long as he found ways to get the Wins. Your understanding of the game seems sketchy given your comparison of old coach ( girls loved him & all were happy) vs new coach(doesn't seem anywhere near..) .
Were the 2 girls who left, making your daughter a better player, bringing her to be her best.

My view, Truth be-Goalie didn't leave because of changed coach, left as playing time was cut. Stallions player left cause family had emotional attachment to the former coach, would have probably left even if
Sir Alex F. came in to coach. Never gave new coach a real look.
Neither loss reflects the quality of the current coach, and the training
Good luck @ try outs, hope you find your dream team.

Brick struggling against TSF is not a good sign for Fury... TSF is by far the worst team in EDP north.

Anonymous said...

Didn't struggle at all actually. Gave up an early goal, then TSF played 9 back for about 60 minutes, and gave up the tying goal with about 5 minutes left. Brick controlled the majority of play. TSF did nothing but clear the ball and try and have their one fast forward chase it.
Brick is just fine.

Tsf was playing with no subs and at the end with only 10 players. The almighty Brick almost got eliminated from state cup while playing one of the most mediocre team in New Jersey. That is struggling. And luck at the end with PK

Splash playing so poorly is just bad news for all the other jersey teams. New coach next season will completely overhaul the team...taking only the best and not caring if you have been on the team since u11. This will lead to dilution of the other teams talent. Say what you want other top teams but when the prestige of wearing that baby blue and playing for the top club in the country weighs in on the egos of mommy and daddy...they will leave and jump at the opportunity to play for PDA...why wouldn't they?

I for one would love to see some new talent in the coaching seats in this age group at all of the top pseudo academies. Would be nice to get some fresh perspective and some more relevant training approaches. It gets a little old with the same guys dragging their fairly significant baggage to a new club. Or the same coaches - who have outstayed their welcome refusing to relinquish their seats. Are there really no new options out there?

"And if they win the state cup at the second level it is still a state cup championship, just a lower level state cup"

This has already been addressed to the ignorant Pt. Pleasant folk. There is only ONE State Cup...period. And You're not in it. Yours is simply a lower level tournament created to take your teams money, which is why they name it "State Cup". It is meaningless. Is there more than one Superbowl Winner? MLB, NHL, NBA? But, whatever helps you to feel good about where you're truly at.

Anonymous said...

It is not meaningless but it cant be mistaken for the real state cup. Many parents do lie to themselves however. I know a coach who won the lower level and was very honest with me when he said they get jackets and no one will know the difference.

I think people are realizing that stallions doc will get results (see older team, every girls is ID'ed and always near tops in the country). Crush hasnt been in top flight of anything since he left. At this age its OK to have a tough coach, maybe you even need it, ends justify the means. recruiting years are coming up fast, coaches that are players best friends and come over to parents house for drinks are for long gone.

Ok, Brick Dad, you keep trying to tell yourself and everyone else that. But in reality, your team had to fight very hard for that win against a 10 players and it all came down to one save during PKs. Hope you at least thanked your goalie!

Anonymous said...

TSF is an "Academy", no? In the REAL reality, a small town team scored the tying goal against an academy team that played 9 defenders and a goalie back for 60 of 70 minutes and then promptly beat said academy team in PKs. Oh, the big bad academy team only had 10 players? Guess what, the small town team was playing with 4-5 girls injured/sick. Don't come here talking ridiculousness, you just make yourself look like a moron. Win a meaningful game, then stop back to chat.

P.S. Of course the goalie was thanked, as is always the case.

Anonymous said...

The fact that your team struggled against a team that ducks real competition is a sign that Brick is on the decline. As noted earlier Brick had their run at u12 &13 now as they slide down the ranking pole it's clear that they no longer will be able to compete against premier region 1 teams. Tsf barely won a game in Edp north ...lol... So you tie Freehold and narrowly escaped TSF...and you consider yourself good. Regardless of the formation you should have scored and that's that.

Just the fact that we talk Tsf and brick In the same sentence is quite extraordinary.
Tsf team is just above recreational level. Their best achievement was to win Neptune tournament so that said it all.( the fact that they show up to a state cup game with only 11 players also show the kind of committment the team has, but that it another story ). Brick has been at the top level for years and still is. True that they are facing some unexpected difficulties with such lower teams that defend with many players but this is also the same way of playing that brick has: many players behind the line of the ball creating lots of problems to the attacking team, and if there is a chance a break away goal for a 1-0 game. Now somebody might not like it and I am one of them but it is their way to play . It has been working for a long while.

TSF doesn't have any impact? Actually, this team or its coach took the 1st place from IGFA by playing the re-scheduling game and forfeiting at the end of the EDP North season - cost IGFA the 1st place. IGFA would destroy this team in soccer. However, by playing this dishonest "game", TSF had a great impact on the overall standing. EDP League did not do anything about this - shame. So, TSF - no impact from the soccer prospective, agree. But be careful, the foxy coach can make the difference.

Besides all this stuff , in your opinion on a pure technical and tactical point of view ( no bs or haters or stupid drama). Who plays the best soccer at this age?

That's kind of a broad question. In NJ, regionally, nationally? In NJ, the same five that are always most discussed on here. Regionally, there are quite a few teams better than NJ currently has.

Ok in Nj . Then regional.

TSF has to be a great team for them to be proud to play for TSF?

Please.

Fair question

Tech - do you want who the best trainer is or the best technical players?

If players - may be PDA Storm - they like to possess the ball and call it a victory.

Tactical - may be Wildcats, may be MF ECNL

Overall - it is MF ECNL

Quite a few teams getting excellent training - and a few close to that level

"The bottom line is the better team won"

Tied, actually

The PK is just to see who advances.

Lmao that question will always have a biased answer. Only one NJ team is playing above 500 ball and the last they lost was last year.... We know who we are and modesty is what keeps us working in silence... It's all about the perfect effort

Brick is 5-8-5 in their last 18 and still hooting the best bs... Now that my friend is hysteria.... The light is getting dinner JH

They were just pre season games , Jeff cup just a warm up . Brick will show soon how good they are

#1 girls tournament in the country is just a warm up? So you started your subs, right?

If best tactical is wildcats in Nj we better close up this blog and start a lacrosse one. How in your right mind can you even mention such a mediocre team

Anonymous said...

Wildcats are a much stronger and better team than ever. New additions and great coaching. They are ready for a great season and a great comeback! EDP and state cup will be showing their qualities. Too many haters and jealousy around. Next round of state cup will come soon and will show how good this team really is. Cats are ready!

Anonymous said...

Yes the cats are ready.......ready for a beat down in state cup and EDP

Anonymous said...

Wildcats play good soccer and can beat anybody. Just beat COPA in state cup that is something already . Now quarter final and semi. Not easy but cats can do it . They have more experience than IGFA in these competition .
My prediction are semi: wildcats vs brick ( they are always lucky in tight games sorry freehold ) and barons vs sta.

If you have traveled outside of NJ you can see some solid teams playing the beautiful game.
In MD you have Bethesda and Premier Strikers with high skill and pace.
In PA you can watch Penn Fusion FC Bucks or Lower Merion and be entertained by their brand of soccer.
In NY you have HBC, NYSC, & World Class FC all are solid teams that move the ball around.

In NJ, IGFA, Slash, SJEB, & the Brick team that played last fall all play a nice brand of soccer that as a fan of the sport I have enjoyed watching. None of the teams are perfect and yes they all can be beaten. But from a technical and tactical point of view these teams are some of the better ones that I have seen play at this age group.

Think the 9:23 person who tossed out the Wildcats initially was from the U-13 blog as he/she mentioned the PDA Storm.

Those teams mentioned above should be in a region 1 premier league and that's a fact the others are from competing with them.... Which is why it is important to play teams from outside of NJ to really measure where you are....playing against the same NJ teams over and over again is not developmentally appropriate...there is no real measure when playing against teams below the top ten within your respective state... Which is why I really admire our DOC... He is always looking to play teams outside of NJ and when he schedules a friendly game they are against teams that are as strong or the other gender because for the most part the better boy teams play quicker, cleaner and challenge our girls to do the same... He is an out the box fellow with a passion that is admired and respected... He has done amazing things for our girls in two years and it will only get better as the progress...

Can someone who has been through this before tell me if the Division 3 colleges actively recruit. I believe there are no scholarships, but do they still actively scout and what is the best way to connect with them?

Anonymous said...

E-mail coaches, with video if possible

Keep it brief

Make invites to see the player EXACT (location, time, opponent)

Anonymous said...

Div 3 recruits. Most will go to local tournaments such as PDA, NEWSS, etc. Many will recruit from id camps. Most will not recruit until end of junior year or beginning to middle of senior year. Scholarships are based on grades. There are some division 3 schools that will take anyone who wants to play.

Anonymous said...

there are some D2 schools that will take anyone also.

Vernon over Homdale suggest a complete overhaul of the team....

Anonymous said...

It's Holmdel you moron...LOL..

I agree as well as this team is on the decline and will only get worse come next year! That is now 4 losses in a row with last weekend's Baltimore Mania tournament as well. Not a good showing at all. Girls are leaving after the spring season from one of their parents inside. Tired of Mommy ball....

Anonymous said...

NJX parent you look like an idiot writing about your own team..

Anonymous said...

Vernon is a very strong team can beat anybody . There are lots of teams coming up. Holmdel is still a good team

Anonymous said...

Maybe they will go play for that loon that is back in the mix --- "Dan Manson' he has been named the new coach of the U14 Team at NJCSA. That club has now lost all credibility. He will be calling up every player within 50 miles to come play for him. And then he will start talking to your daughter via instagram, stay away for this guy. One may describe that behavior as creepy!!!!

Anonymous said...

He has already started contacting players. We won't play for him again.

Very sorry for all the girls at NJYSA , from a nutcase to another. Bad coaching bad people bad teaching.
Parents run and run fast. For real.check the history of both of them while running

Unhappy NJX and NJYSA girls can try out with Old Bridge.

So Vernon beat NJX - The beauty of a single elimination tournament is that any team can beat another on any given day. Congrats to Vernon - Better luck with the rest of your season NJX

Anonymous said...

Njcsa best girls are already leaving.

Anonymous said...

So state cup teams prediction for me are:

Sta vs Vernon: sta
Pda Madrid vs barons: barons
Wildcats vs IGFA: wildcats
Freehold vs brick : freehold

Wildcats is stronger than in the past and will be showing in the above game. Brick cannot be always that lucky and freehold will go through this time.

You people are so hateful. So what if DM is coaching. If you don't like him dont play for him. I can tell you that every player that has played for him has loved him. He's a good coach, maybe not the best at managing. Hopefully other people are involved. Its so funny that the town coach is posting about him because he's afraid his team will fall apart.... and he should be. Good luck with that.

" I can tell you that every player that has played for him has loved him"

Wow - DM can you be move obvious - you posted a comment that every player that has played for you has loved you?" You are just creepy and anyone that would have their child play for you would be crazy. I don't think any team would be worried about losing players to you, why would you go after JH like that, because 4 of your best players from NJ Force are playing for him. And they are very happy

Anonymous said...

@12:05 you're funny. I'm not DM I am a mom that has played for him. I can tell you he honestly doesn't care what you think. Just you thinking about him is funny. Good luck.

DM was forced on us once and it was a wasted year. I will not sign up for his circus again.

DM and JH are very good friends. Same kind of mentality same kind of soccer knowledge same kind of people.
Over by exit 88 something weird in the water and food I guess. Lol
