Good TEAM of good players from top to bottom. All of them can play but please stop with top kids in the state on that team. Nada one ECNL player on that team. Gobble up the last of your points and move on. The same thing will happen to this team that happened to all others in that program. Good team of kids that are solid but not ECNL level. Same thing happens to their other teams....
6:16 wrong again!!
Wildcats. Come take my daughters spot. Seen you play many times. Your girls have no shot. But please come and get it.
The ECNL teams in NJ at this age have replaceable talentTo say a top non ECNL team has "no ECNL girls" on it is just silly.
I know this probably won't be received well but Keep doing what your doing wildcats. It's obviously working and some people just can't handle that. All the girls on all the teams work hard so if your daughter is on that team then good for them for working hard and looking to keep developing their skills and the game! Enough with attacking these little girls.
6:16. looks like someone struck a nerve
6:32. Agreed. But it won't be from Wildcats.
6 34. Please stop with the little girl nonsense. I can't count the number of times I've heard the parents encourage these little girls to be physical and to take down another player because of what these girls lack in skill they try to make it up in physical play. They encourage going through the player rather than shoulder to shoulder. On the field. No more little girl. These are now athletes. And some are dirty.
Same was said about another team. The team members continue to get poaching calls. e-mails, etc
10:51 Cats are organised well in defense as an 11 player unit. They appear to be lacking offensively and seem to run out of ideas against the other good sides. They also seem to play tight late in big games conceding and surrendering victories such as in the 2 state cups, at delco, at spirit, and at wags. I am not knocking them, but until they're able to improve offensively and close out big games I wouldn't say they are #1 or #2 in NJ. That said, I would gladly place a wager that they are better than Ajax. I've never seen the Wildcats endure a lop sided decision over the past 15 months the way Ajax periodically does. The comments that come from the PDA parents are rubbish. Of course there are players on that squad that are superior players to some on PDA.
"keep doing what you have been doing".... That is the problem with all of your talk. NOTHING of substance has EVER been won. And you do not even see it... Final ECNL teams are not even done yet. Next year there will be some players jumping over and then off to the next level. That is what you do not see. No place to go in your program....
Dude you are WAY to into this wildcat team. Let it go, you sound very "attached" to what they are and ate not doing.It's starting to be wierd
If they don't have any players who can make pda storm then how did they just beat them 2-0 in in the spring(with the new players from crush and ajax).I don't believe storm had a clean shot the whole game and wildcats won most of the tackles 50/50 balls and head balls.Physical and mental toughness doesn't just come naturally with age. It is a mindset that is developed over time and becomes part of a players on field persona.Developing a warriors mentality on the field is something that is taught and developed in training. It is not for everyone and some move on which is fine.
7:59 your criticism of not be able to finish out some wins in the past year is fair. Some of that was due to lack of quality depth or in some events no healthy subs to come off bench at all.More quality depth added this fall but still agree they have to prove themselves to be the best.Right now you can make an argument for any of top 4 based on last full year of results(mf, mf npl, storm, wildcats).
8;01 please tell us what your team has won of substance
ECNL - just another level in the soccer(sports) business. Why do it? The current leagues/training weren't enough? The lemming principle in full effect. Just another avenue for the "academies" to put their hands in your wallet. Is there a hard limit on the number of ECNL teams that are allowed? No.. so it will end up just another diluted level of soccer charging more fees for training. Rember when Jags was the big leager? Edp? Npl? Now Ecnl? How about GFYS!! With an accent people will probably things it's legit. Your daughters are 13 and your probably on the wrong side of 40, give it up...
8:01 please tell us why you obsessively continue to attack wildcats with your nonsensical posts.Are you really so bitter and miserable that you hate this team, coach , players to the degree that you must spend your time attacking a team you are not a part of.At least if we post we are taking about our own daughters team or comparing our team or teams results with another team we compete with . You don't seem to be a part of anything or any team because you never talk about your daughters team or "your team" only anything to attack wildcats.If that is true and you are only on here to stalk a team of 12 year old girls with no skin in the game then you are one sick person.Did your daughter get cut or benched by wildcats club or coach in the past? If so then dude it's youth sports and you are taking that way to personally.
I'm from Virginia but I have to agree with 8:42. Someone needs help and to drop his obsession.
I have no dog in this fight, but I think you'd see less attacks on Wildcats if there were less self-serving Wildcats posts. What do I mean by self-serving?We were in the hardest bracket. Other team needed a late goal just to tie us. It was only a consolation game. I just don't see this kind of stuff coming other parents. Maybe the Rage parents did this when they'd announce they lost because players were at TIP.
8:56 no sir.8:51 from virginia has it right.The majority of posts attacking wildcats are from 1 or 2 individuals with an obvious ax to gring and have nothing to do with results or anything other than a obvious blind hatred and obsession.Every game they win is "meaningless" every game they lose is telling and they are "done".Every time they are put into a top flight they will be "smoked, destroyed, I will eat my hat if they don't lose every game in that flight".then when they go thru the top flights(Spirit U12, spiritU13, WAGS Cup U13) unbeaten they are derided for "only ties vs those top teams and not winning every game".There are occasional posts from ajax or storm parents who can't abide their losses to wildcats but those are in the minority.Plus the inane, obsessive posts have been going on for 18 months, before the games vs either pda team.Not arguing you personally feel the way you do and that is fine, but that is not the explanation for the 1 or 2 sicko, over the top haters for this team out there. This team has come from off the radar and made themselves a player at this level over the past year.And that doesn't sit well with a couple of them.
8:56 is the same parent from ajax who occasionally attacks wildcats and play up ajax as better, but he is not the one with the obsession.
5:54 yes the winner of wildcats WAGS Cup bracket FC Virginia only scored 2 goals in their 4 games and they are an outstanding offensive team.That is just the way it is in the top brackets of top tournaments that draw the top teams from all over the country. The brackets that competitive.It has always been that way in WAGS Cup Flight brackets over the years.It is very hard to score on those very strong well organized teams.
They also seem obsessed with PDA.I can assure you wildcats, your team never comes up in conversation.Neither good nor bad.Nice win by the way!
agree much of the attacks on wildcats win over storm did not come from storm parents.Believe that was also from obsessive wildcat haters not affiliated with pda.
thanks.we all have plenty to worry about with our own teams, clubs and daughters to be bothered hating on and obsessing on another team.Life is too short and soon the girls will be grown and done with soccer.We should all try and fun some fun and enjoyment in the ride while it lasts.Leave the haters to their unhappy, bitter, miserable existence.
914...."This team has come from off the radar and made themselves a player at this level over the past year".Not true, you took over a very good, talented & athletic team that was always considered a top team in the area. It's not surprising at all to see how well Wildcats have been doing. Stop giving yourself so much credit.
OK, Now they were always a top team.A minute ago they had never won any game of substance.Wildcats can't win for losing.
Yes a top team that hasn't won anything.
Wildcats lost to Ajax 3-1 in a tournament this season.
I believe that gas been established already. Why is that being posted repeatedly?
8:56 last night nailed this thing dead on. The self serving pat on the back posts are what gets everyone annoyed with that team. Please self serve post when you win something to show your improvement. Everyone is competing at high level. Some programs will move to next level next year. Will that team be one of them? Let's wait and see. Can we please move on.
Every team on this blog posts self serving messages, you can't single them out.Just keeping it real.
8:56 When that comment was made, about girls being at TIP, the game was a scrimmage against WC predators and I believe NJ Crush. It was made because someone said Rage didn't look good. He had very weak players off the bench coming in who barely played in league games. I don't believe it was an excuse , I believe the person was just trying to say their starters weren't all there. Rage did not need to make excuses, I believe their results at basically all games showed their talent.
I disagree, 7:58. Look at, for example, October 12, 2014 at 8:25 PM. Not self-serving at all. Great post actually.Or compare say, October 11, 2014 at 8:22 PM with October 11, 2014 at 8:29 PM. Don't you see the difference?
Nitwit is back with a little NPL talk - sorry to take away the spotlight from the NJ WIldcats - seems like we circle back with this team every 3 for months for the same exact talk. Next up PDA thinks they own the world or MatchFit ECNL vs NPL who should be ECNL talk.VA person - can you give a little feedback on Virginia NPL?? I will do my best with New England NPL and Northeast NPL next. EDL has nothing new to update us with so any talk will just be a best guess.NYCSL NPL PreviewNYCSL GIRLS PDP EVENTDate: Friday October 17th 2014Date: Friday November 21, 2014GIRLS U13 NPL StandingsPTS (GP) - Team Name7 (3) New York Soccer Club NPL-016 (3) STA NPL-015 (4) Massapequa Soccer Club NPL-014 (2) NJ Crush FC NPL-014 (3) Intense Soccer Academy NPL-014 (3) Manhattan Soccer Club NPL-013 (3) Quickstrike FC NPL-010 (3) New York Rush NPL-01How NYCSL NPL teams did this past weekend:New York Soccer Club NPL-01TOPHAT 20 GOLD (GA) 0-3HARFORD FC UNITED THUNDER (MD) 3-3PWSI COURAGE 01G RED (VA) 2-1STA NPL-01FSA FC U13 GIRLS NPL 01 (CT) 2-0FSA FC U13 GIRLS PRE-ECNL 01 (CT) 1-0ATLETICO FC GIRLS '01 (NYE) 0-1PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY STORM (NJ) 0-0Manhattan Soccer Club NPL-01BETHESDA SC ACADEMY 2001 BLUE (MD) 0-2MIAMI SPRINGS SOCCER MSVG 01G BLUE (FL) 1-1CUSA CREW JUNIORS 01 GOLD (OS) 1-0Quickstrike FC NPL-01CSU U13G ELITE (MA) 1-0CFC ARSENAL SKY (CT) 0-6SOUTH SHORE SELECT U13 ELITE (MA) 0-9New York Rush NPL-01ARLINGTON SA SAMBA WHITE (VA) 0-0MSC BLAZE GREEN (MD) 1-1ALBERTSON FURY 01 NPL (NYE) 1-1LMVSC PATRIOTS RED (VA) 1-4This week’s ScheduleNew York SC NPL-01 Intense SA NPL-01 NYSC with 3 will move 6 points ahead of ISA, while if ISA can get 3 they will tie NYSC for 1st.

8:29, the fact is you can't complain about absences without taking into account the other team's absences, too. But no one ever does this. All teams have injuries have and absences.Why is it so hard to say, "you whipped us good that day. We'll do better next time"? Instead folks feel the need to make up excuses: Susie, our best player, was at TIP.Susie, our best player, was injured.Susie, our best player, was on the bench when you scored all your goals.
12:08 read post 7:59 PM.Its posts like that draw all the anti Wildcat rants. Don't see how you can lose 3-1 and claim to be better.
8:44 I don't know if this is a good thing for you but the Nitwit agrees with you.
" Don't see how you can lose 3-1 and claim to be better."This is typically where we'll see the Wildcat post claiming it was only a consolation game and players were out of position and besides the third goal was scored late while they were pushing for the tie.And we'll see, for like the fifth time on this board, that Wildcats tied Penn Legacy (who needed a late goal to tie Wildcats) and Penn Legacy beat Penn Fusion 5-1 and Penn Fusion beat Ajax 2-0 so this proves that Wildcats are better.But, hey, everyone posts self-serving stuff.
I don't - I post based on results only. While this is not the best - there can be no opinions. two teams played and one was better or they were the same on that date with the players that played. Very simple. The girls always play to win regardless of what we say.Every player that trains is part of the team if their parents pay a tuition from 1 to 25. It doesn't matter who plays if they are good enough for teams/clubs to take their money then they are part of that team regardless of who doesn't play or plays.
8:56Seriously, just stop already.
Does Rage have a U13 team? I saw here they lost a bunch of players. I thought they still had enough to field a team.
The below league is how league's should look out for their clubs/teams/players.They take money, but at least they give back and show a little love and it looks like they care about their league. http://www.norcalnpl.com/clubsite/?p=8036
Nothing is static in youth soccer. Teams are getting either better or worse every single season.A tremendous amount will depend on the coach of the program and at this age, it has a lot to do with the players coming into the program.This is why some programs have a tremendous advantage.The kids are just beginning to look like soccer players. Skills are being refined this year. Girls that were never physical before are beginning to initiate contact. Players that never communicated very well and were afraid to open their mouth are beginning to talk to one another. Goalies are beginning to take control of their space and direct the defense. The girls are beginning to understand the concepts of pressure cover and playing defense in groups Midfielders are beginning to understand their roles on the pitch.Teams like Matchfit, PDA, Wildcats, TSF, NYSC Copa will go through the same changes that every u13 team before them have gone through.The curriculum and what is stressed at the early ages will have a lot to do with who is successful from u10-u13. some will begin to prosper, while others fall backFor example: Some clubs start with technical skills and passing early on and although extremely important, the put the value of aggression on hold. The coaches do not go over set pieces, instead they spend their time trying to build a technical foundation. They demand their players to build from the back,and to go through the midfield NO MATTER WHAT. Some clubs stress the value of Set pieces, physicality and stepping to the ball early on. They may teach technical ball skills but building from the back and going through the middle is not part of their game day play.Early on, from u10-u13, assuming the athletes are of equal ability, the club that teaches aggression and set pieces are always going to be ahead of those clubs that demand the girls to work their way out of trouble. The possession club at the early ages can be nothing more than CHUM for the clubs that teach physical play. Sometimes it is brutal to watch a young technical team get slaughtered by those teams that are teaching their players the value of aggression.But somewhere around u13-u14 everything starts to change. pressure cover, stepping to ball, set pieces , initiating contact, tackling in groups and speaking to one another on the pitch begin to be demanded by the high level technical teams.The girls begin to level out in their aggression, And this is where everything changes.Don't be fooled by early success of early aggressive play curriculums. They are doing nothing more than taking advantage of a technical teams curriculum at a time when the girls just aren't good enough or physical enough to match the intensity.( it is an easy way for a club or business to show success and attract parents and dollars to their doors.In the next year, you will see a tremendous difference in those technical teams that start to initiate contact with those teams that were always considered aggressive. History always repeats itself.-Soccer Nut- If you haven't noticed this is
10:17- Interesting post, thanks.
8:45 I posted 7:59 and I can assure you I have no ties to the Wildcats. I was born in Portugal and learned English and played futbal there. How anyone could read my post and believe it to be self serving to the Wildcats is absurd. The one direct result at spirit does not out weigh months of results nor does it affect what I've been able to observe over time. Wildcats have their flaws but Ajax is a wildly inconsistent team trying to talk their way into a top 3 discussion. Just an opinion friend. Please don't lose any sleep over it. PAZ is the word.
Tough for Ajax to be consistent (or NJX for that matter) if their top player is being grabbed by the ECNL team.Play ECNL fulltime. Stop the shenanigans with the team jumping.
11:44 Sleeping like a baby thanks. Please excuse me, I was born in America therefore don't know "soccer" very well. Here, when a team beats another team soundly (3-1) I can consider the team with more goals better.
I LOVE post about keepers becoming more involved and directing games. The sweeper keeper proved that from Germany this past world cup.
12:35 try this- 1 result win or lose on one day does not trump body of work and head to head results vs each other and other top teams over a full year of competition.ajax lost more than they won vs wildcats and other teams who belong in top 4(mf, mf npl, storm).NONE of those 4 teams EVER lose games 4-0 5-0 or worse as ajax has done in the last year more than once.Continuing to harp on one win in a consolation game as indicative of both teams relative strength while throwing out all other recent results is not objective.Look for example how competitive wildcats were in WAGS Cup Flight last weekend ,then consider how Ajax was hammered ALL 3 GAMES at jeff cup a few months ago when they got their chance in a top flight of an elite tournament and outscored 10-1 vs a bracket that was not as strong as what wildcats faced at WAGS last week and went unbeaten and allowed only 1 PK goal..You deserve credit for your win over wildcats on sunday at spirit.Good game. Well done.You deserved the win that day.But that is 1 win in 5 games head to head over the last year and can not be looked at without considering the big picture and the whole body of work of Ajax and these other contending teams.
Can the old #2 post the result comparisons vs ranked teams again for nj top 4 and ajax over last full year.If I remember correctly Ajax was barely over 500 in wins vs losses vs top ten and below 500 vs out of state ranked teams at tournaments.also believe it showed very weak goals scored vs goals allowed totals compared to top 4 vs similar ranked competition.
Not relevant anymore. Teams this fall are much different.
12:57 & 1:13- Wildcat coach- WAKE UP, your still talking U12. Good teams improve through new additions and training.U12- Ajax wins your EDP fall leagueU12- Ajax in the 3rd bracket at PDA with you. They advance and with the finals.U13 (Which is what matters) Ajax 3-1 over Wildcats. If wins don't mean your better, than what does. Any team can claim to be better if final scores don't matter.
Are we talking about the Ajax team that PDA uses to lure the best kid from Rage and the best kid from SJEB and then sends them to help Storm NOT win a tournament while Ajax gets blanked in 2 games over the weekend including a 4-0 shellacking? That Ajax? Get over yourself pal. Your club exists to caddie the ECNL teams up North. How many South teams represent PDA in ECNL?
"Are we talking about the Ajax team that PDA uses to lure the best kid from Rage and the best kid from SJEB and then sends them to help Storm NOT win a tournament while Ajax gets blanked in 2 games over the weekend including a 4-0 shellacking? That Ajax? Get over yourself pal. Your club exists to caddie the ECNL teams up North. How many South teams represent PDA in ECNL?"Good move. After reading the last few posts, I'd change the subject, too.
Is that your idea of "no comment"? Truth hurts, huh?
Thats ECNL.One best kid there and one best kid there will be accepted into these programs.Those that think they still have a chance to cracks these clubs, your kids have to be better than the couple of NJX players going to Matchfit and/or the the Rage or SJEB kid. That is your competition.I'm just curious, is there a player on Wildcats better than these players?- And for those of you who think that you'll replace a current starter on one of these teams, its possible but only if your kid is at least as good as the new kids coming into the program. It will get even harder next year. And that folks is the ECNL!
Ajax your results have been wildly inconsistent over the last year compared to the other 4 teams above you.Your team has been beaten badly numerous times vs top teams and while you also have some significant wins it doesn't make up for your consistent inconsistency vs the top flight teams.You are cherry picking your positive results while ignoring your no show performances.Your jeff cup and spirit bracket play results in the only tournaments where you ever played all top level teams over a weekend speak for themselves.You were out of contention by the end of saturday in all 3 of those opportunities.You must compare your whole body of work vs that of the teams you claim to be better than.Again if #2 reposts the comparisons over the last year it is obvious you are a step behind the top 4 in your body of work. If things change this season than we can revisit your status but last weekends results show more of the same inconsistency.
I am not an Ajax or WC parent, but my daughter's team has played them both. Ajax is inconsistent, but from my view, both teams on their best day, Ajax is a notch above. Ajax has had big losses, but they also finished ahead of WC in 3 out of 4 recent events: Spirit, Fall EDP, and PDA tournament. WC are more consistent, but have not won anything. Question to ask is whose upside is better going forward?
Soccer Nut, interesting post on October 14, 2014 at 10:17 AM...Does this observation come from personal experience?
WC is World ClassUse a different abbrev. for Wildcats.
wildcats tied for 1st in bracket in spirit each of last 2 years without losing a game in bracket play both years.Ajax lost early and was out of contention to advance on saturday after bracket play both years.Wildcats lost shootout sunday morning for chance to advance to semi's this year right before consolation game vs ajax.Those are facts, your opinion is just that.
And a question related to 2:55's but more broadly applicable, which is the better way to improve a player: a system that gets consistent game results, or a system that has more variation?I never played the game so I have no personal insights, but my instincts tell me that, on first blush, consistency would be prized over variability.But does consistency imply a conservative approach? Does variability imply a more wide open free-wheeling approach?Or is there very little we can glean from a team's results. Is a team with variable results just whipping the bad teams and losing to the good ones? Is the consistent team just a team where all the good players play defense? Is the consistent team just a bad team with a shutdown keeper?
ajax has more lopsided shutout losses to ranked teams in the past year than I have fingers to count them.Wildcats have not even 1.
You are both good teams that can beat each other on any given day. Let's move on.
12:59 Thats why there are tiebreakers . Only one team can FINISH in first, and it was never you.PDA South will never be the ECN teamL. ALL ECNL teams will be in Zarepath that is understood. It is verbalized to EVERYBODY in public.Every team is a possible feeder team for ECNL. PDA South, PDA North, Crush and Wildcats all lost players to ECNL teams this year.These are facts
AJAX will find out now that their best girls will move to the Storm next year if not this year. It will be a a constant need for new talent.
"AJAX will find out now that their best girls will move to the Storm next year if not this year. It will be a a constant need for new talent."I think they know this, right?Should they feel bad about this?
No not bad but a fact. Happens every year to them and Dragons. So far they both have managed to improve every year.
Remember when the Wildcats boasted about getting Ajax 3 best players, than Ajax won their EDP division. All 3 players left the team within a year.
Which goes to my point earlier, it is almost impossible for the non ECNL teams to compete with ECNL teams over the next 5 years. Therefore the goal of the non ECNL teams is to be the best non ECNL team. This includes Wildcats, AJAX, NJX, Dragons, Crush , Boca or whoever. That is the goal.
@2:58. Yes. One girl playing d1. One girl in the middle and 1 girl just starting. I have made numerous mistakes. I have also been on inside of club management.
Where did the Ajax players, who left for Wildcats, end up?
2 are at NJCSA Galaxy
So this is their 4th team in a year.Something's up with that
Not necessarily a KNOCK on Wildcats that these three didnt stay on another year, is it?
For instance - Wildcats, re: the tying...At Jeff Cup - had you beaten, not tied, either Greater Binghamton (NYW) or Waza East (MI) you'd have been in the final.Instead you stand by "we had no losses in bracket at Jeff Cup"Calvert grabbed 5248 points that you had a shot at, had you - in theory - gone for it.
Hey, at least on one occasion a Wildcat outside defender has overlapped and reached the end line. If that's not going for it I don't know what is.
...and if they had just scored more goals than the other teams they would be champions of the free world.

Why do people continue to beat up all NJ teams. Let's try and support all the teams. Nobody is perfect. No team or club will be able to compete against the ECNl clubs. That's ok. I'm fine with that. Top to bottom those clubs will have better teams. That's great. Good luck PDA and Matchfit. That's where it stops though. Any team can beat and be better than the NPL teams. So if that's what the 50 or so families wanted to hear I said it, no move on. Stop beating up girls who left. Who cares. Good luck to all the Nj teams.
Wildcats petitioning for term "Winning percentage" to be changed to" Non-losing percentage" so their ties can count for something.
Thanks for replying Soccer Nut. I also have a daughter at the U10 level. I don't know if I should have her play up to U12 on a second team to get a jump on learning positioning, etc.. or just hacve her work with someone on individual technical/footskills, 1 V. 1 , etc.. It's a tougher call than I thought.
are JAGS schedules posted online anywhere?
@4:59. it is never a matter of playing up for sake of playing up. The pace and athleticism of the game can vary significantly. Find the best on age program as possible. Try not to concentrate on brand of club rather pedigree of trainer. Playing up is not a recipe for eventual success. The coach and program on age will dictate success. There are coaches that teach this beautiful game in such a way that they encourage creativity and there are coaches that go right to passing I prefer the creativity to the robotic. Playing up is not just a matter of whether your daughter can handle it physically. Confidence and mental aspect is as important. Playing on age with a great program and coach can provide all aspects. You learn how to play the game with your team but you improve the most technically on your own. -Soccer Nut-
Also Be careful about learning 1 vs 1 skills as a solo participant with a hired trainer. Always better to learn in small groups so that your daughter is able to use skill at game speed. Being taught a skill and not perfecting it against an opponent is a waste of money. Perhaps here you can invite an older player-Soccer Nut-
You just can't let go, can you LOL Pathetic
5:32 good point. those who acquire the technical skill to move on to the higher levels at older ages will be the ones who work as many days as possible on their skills away from their team practices.2x per week has never been enough.Seek out challenging environments to hone your skills.
Wildcat coach should keep his mouth shut, stay off the blog, and worry about his own team. But he can't because its not about U13 soccer. Its about him. He comes on the blog to tell everybody what a wonderful job he is doing. He carries on a feud with ex manager, he goes back and forth with parents of former players, and he talks smack about former players. Puts a bulls eye on his team. Just stay off the blog and people will forget about you.
I nominate 946 for the BEST blog in 2014!
Stop attacking his team and he'll stay off.
@10:19Not responding would be the mature/professional way to handle it.I think my kids have already learned this lesson so I'll throw it out there for those who haven't.You don't need anyones validation but your own. You can't demand respect, it is earned. And the final part of this frequent talk is your more likely to get something if you stop asking for it.
It seems that you are not practicing what you preach, the posts from the last day or so seems to be from others and not the coach. That seems even more self serving then what he is doing. It makes you no better and frankly hypocritical . If you let it go, so will he. Let's ALL grow up.
Doesnt Wildcats have a Cup game this weekend?Maybe the talk should be about the game of importance upon them, rather than where they rank.Bad time of year to not take opponents seriously.
Any thoughts on TSF vs Manalapan?Manalapan is NJCSA Elite, correct?
PA UpdatePart 1Unfortunately I was unable to attend any U13 soccer games this past weekend (was watching my U9 instead), so a lot of the stuff below is hearsay from some friends who did watch the U13s.Discovery CupPenn LegacyAs predicted by a few folks on this blog, PL won the top group, beating a good Florida team in the final. They also continue to roll through PAGS, remaining undefeated and are a shoe-in for the playoffs.This is a big and physical team with some very skilled players. They are not fun to play against. Parents will chirp at opposing teams' players, and this team does not back down from contact. Injuries they have caused this fall that I know of: Penn Fusion's lead scorer (knee injury), Ukrainians lead scorer and best player (concussion during PAGS season), and a top Ukrainian defender (concussion during Discovery Cup).I paint a bleak picture, but I cannot honestly say I've seen any dirty play from PL in the one half of their soccer I was able to observe this fall. They are intense and tough, but the few kids I know from the team are quite nice. However, I do wish there was a way to curb some of the parental behavior. It really detracts from the accomplishments of the players.1776Discovery Cup final should have been 1776 against PL, but 1776 choked against another PA team, HMMS. 1776 also lost 2-1 recently to PA Classics. 1776 ran into some match up problems against HMMS's speedy striker and let a couple goals in. Per usual, HMMS played very stingy defense. Had 1776 won, they would have faced the unenviable task of playing Legacy three times over the course of six weeks (Dicovery, PAGS regular season, PAGS playoffs). So maybe they dodged a bullet here.I expect 1776 to grab the 3 or 4 seed in the PAGS playoffs. Aside from the showdown with Legacy on Oct 25, 1776 will also play Match Fit NPL at Bethesda, if the current flights hold up. Should be a good barometer of PA vs NJ.UkrainiansThis has very much turned into a transition year for the current PA state champs. With a W-L-D of 1-4-0 in PAGS, this has been a very bad season for them. Recent losses include 1-3 and 1-5 against PL, and 0-5 against 1776.This team had a lot of turnover before this season, but the expectation was that the new additions would be better than the players that left. Some speculate that the shift to the bigger 11v11 field has neutralized the ability of their best player to dominate like she did when playing 8v8.Seems like the blog has adopted a character limit. More coming in Part 2.-PA Guy
Part 2WAGSPenn FusionAs the only PA team in the top bracket at WAGS, PF's 0-2-1 record with 1 GF and 4 GA is a disappointment. Results for this team continue to be uneven with bad results such as 0-0 tie with BRYC, 0-2 loss to Tennessee, 2-3 loss to Albertson, and 1-5 loss to Legacy in the recent past. Good results include 1-0 win against East Meadow pre-ECNL and 2-1 win against Match Fit pre-ECNL. They also tied Boston 1-1 back at Delco with largely the same roster (only added players, cut none).Word from WAGS was they didn't have much problem possessing and maintaining possession, but there was definitely an issue in creating scoring chances in the last third, and it is something the team will need to address quickly. Their schedule does not give them any cupcakes against which they can work through their issues: Boston, Stars, CT FC, and FSA to finish up their ECNL schedule; and then they get Virginia FC, Wildcats, and Maryland FC at Bethesda. PF against Wildcats yet another good PA vs. NJ clash.PA ClassicsI must admit I underestimated this team, which I believe is made up primarily of players cut from Legacy. But they have a good chance of getting through PAGS undefeated, and they seem to be a team that rises up and knows how to win. Like many Lancaster/central PA teams (an unlike their delicate sisters in the greater Philadelphia area), Classics are physical and love contact. High fives all around for a player who gets a yellow card.PAGS playoffs and possible games against 1776 and Legacy loom. They'll also face Crush in the third division at Bethesda. I do not know if they played in a tournament this past weekend.-PA Guy

Five four nine With all due respect I'm not practicing anything and I'm certainly not hypocritical. I don't post, I read, but when someone tries to denigrade specific kids who don't even know this blog exists let alone read it, I'm going to weigh in. A line has been breached in order to try and save face. Ten four three is 100% correct! A professional coach should act as such, not get on a blog and exchange insults. There are always going to be disgruntled parents including in your own camp talking smack on an anonymous blog. The coach knows full well this has zero impact on his team. MAYBE he worries about how what's said on this blog will affect his training business. In any case, be a professional and stay off the blog. PDA takes more heat from more people on this blog than anyone, yet I have never seen a post from any club official trumpeting their accomplishments, calling out parents, or knocking players. This has become ridiculous and as long as the coach keeps posting he'll continue to be the object the ridicule.
I agree with you 100%, 11:22.
This is an anonymous forum, palAny accusation that a coach is on the blog as a poster is strictly dangerous speculation.Regardless of what you feel, you should refrain from such accusations in the future.
I think it was established long ago that it was the coach posting, 11:27.And I'm not really sure you know what the words "pal" and "dangerous" mean.
Nothing of the sort has been established.Be gone now, juvenile.
One one two seven You are joking right? Speculation? The coach has signed his name to some of his posts. In fact, I believe you are him. "Dangerous"? Now you are resorting to threats? You know what's dangerous? Talking smack about someone's 12 year old on a blog when you are supposed to be a role model. Just stay off the blog. How does your club tolerate this behavior?
I am 11:27 and 12:03 and I am not the Wildcats coach.Like I said - dangerously speculated.Talk soccer and you'll be Ok here.
10:43 is right.the fact that your team is now top flighted in every major tournament(WAGS Cup, now Bethesda,etc) means that you have earned the respect of those whose opinions mater and carry weight.Guaranteed most of the attacks are from parents or coaches who are frustrated that their daughters teams are not where your team is.
And the more your team rises, the more the attacks will continue.
I just can't believe that people are not letting this die out. The persistence of the negative posts are juvenile.Let's get back to future happenings and not past happenings.
And the desperate hatred and obsession of the attacks are so transparent .Move on and get a life.
@12:13Just talk soccer here is the point. Crazy cat coach is the reason for the scorn as he is the leader of the group. And a blind person can pick out his posts just by the verbiage and writing style including attacking kids. Take your own advice and move on.
The more you rise, the more desperate the attacks.Especially when it's a team outside theestablished big 2 clubs.
12:34 it's your verbiage that is so easily recognizable with your redundant posts.We can hear the panting of your hot breathe as you loudly peck out your desperate attacks.
It's the Manalapan Dynamite guy again.Ex-manager of wildcats who left 18 months ago and still can't let go.He is with NJCSA Elite/Manalapan entity now. He is on a daily mission on the blog to try and stop wildcats rise.It's become a life mission(obsession) of sorts for him.
yes, the wildcats parents all recognize his posts and crack up at how he is still obsessed with our team almost 2 years later.
State Cup Quarter Final PredictionsWildcats 5 Medford 1STA 4 Thistle 0TSF 3 Manalapan 1SJEB 1 Crush 2
It should be a competitive final 4.
and the rest of the world recognizes your coaches self serving posts. Every tie is a win, and every loss was almost a tie. Or my favorite... I played my subs.
Didn't STA tie Storm 2-2 last weekend.That is a team on the rise it seems.
Does Manalapan have a shot vs TSF?
It depends on what team they put on the field. If it is the Manalapan team without the NJSA elite girls than probably not. If its the elite team then there is a good possibility of them winning
Who cares?Some good state cup matchups this weekend and ahead for stretch run, then Bethesda upcoming a moth from now.Soccer, Soccer, Soccer on this blog.Leave personal feuds off the blog.Deal with your personal issues elsewhere.We are not interested.
Does anyone know which team is playing state cup>Manalapan or NJCSA Elite?
only they know who will be playing LOL
I've written a couple douchey things on this blog and been mocked or called out for them. And after initially getting angry, I laughed and told the person mocking me that their post was well played and that I deserved the ridicule.I didn't actually write it, but the douchiest post must have been the "so proud of little Susie juggling in our driveway every night" post that got some ridicule.Ridicule is ok. It's valuable feedback. And I suppose we all draw the line differently on how much ridicule is allowed.I guess what I am saying is, if you are a fan/coach of Team X, and you write a braggy/douchey post about Team X, you may get ridiculed, and what you wrote may get repeated over and over and over just to hammer the point home. It's the internet. It happens.
I believe it's the same team. Manalapan = NJCSA Elite. NJCSA Elite just beat TSF so ...
Both the Manalapan and NJCSA Elite team are exactly the same. They go under the name Manalapan for the Jags league and NJCSA Elite name for EDP. They do this so they can have practices and their home games in Manalapan. Same coaches and players for both teams.Yes they have a chance to beat TSF as they beat them 1-0 in last weekends tournament.
3:37 -So coach then why bother with NJCSA? If the team is exactly the same? Or do you have more East Brunswick girls on that team?
Uh oh. Were the previous two posts dangerous speculation? Or just normal speculation? I hope no one is in danger.
Danger, Will Robinson! Danger. No Will Robinson. Danger!
Is Medford even in the top 100 gs points wise? Should be a tough final 8......

Just posted all the NPL Standings Going into the Weekend.So some of you guys can see who plays NPL
....or they could just google NPL soccer...
4:03 asks "why bother" being affiliated with a CLUB like NJSA '04/Cedar Stars = NJCSA... rather than just "stay Manalapan".Which avenue do you think gives the girls access to the bettrer programs?Which would make it easier to attract players/make the team, better?A wise coach once said, "I have taken them as far as I can with the resources I have. Time to let them go to the next level...."
Ya missed eastern If you're going to cut and paste...
Some great NJ soccer this weekend as the top 4 teams will play this weekend.PDA ECNL vs Match Fit ECNLPDA South vs MF NPLBoth programs very quiet. Taking the high road, afraid to jinx themselves or maybe just both?
Oh the pain! Such Treachery, Hatred, Bitterness, and Desperation by those who torment the kindly, humble, philanthropic old man from Ocean. Leave this gentle soul alone.
Any predictions on who wins the battle of pre-ECNL's?Seems like PDA will be stacked with their players they stole from the south and looks like MF will have the GFA player get stole from the NPL. Should be interesting.
Errors....Any predictions on who wins the battle of pre-ECNL's?Seems like PDA will be stacked with their players they stole from the south and looks like MF will have the GFA player they stole from their NPL team. Should be interesting.
Watched WAGS this weekend and wildcats offense and middle is weak, but there defense continues to save them which keeps them a top team. Stop picking on other teams just because your disappointed in yours.
I agree with 7:22, watched about 20 minutes of the Wildcats this weekend, center-back very strong, tough, lots of big boots over the top, not much combination play, good luck to them in Bethesda!
Stole? Really, you dope.Its called getting a call-up to the bigger team, its what every young player dreams about, stop the hating, you, you, you dope.
Dope? U r the dope. It's my opinion. And my opinion is that players should not jump around from team to team during the season. Guest playing in tourneys is ok, but what kind of team chemistry and example are these programs setting? Win at all costs and no loyalty. Freaking poor example.
A dopey post. " what every kid dreams of"Lmao....I think not door man.
5:55 then you would have to go to each League's schedule not all are on the NPL site.6:42 I didn't miss eastern - they haven't update their info.
714I believe Match Fit is about to become unstoppable
door man? I don't get it, but that’s fine, and I did not say kid, I said player, and if your child aspires for safe soccer, please continue. But my daughter would love a chance to play on the best team, why are we spending all this time and money if not to push for the top, its what winners do, so you would have no idea. Loser.
7:44 your opinion must be based on some sort of slight by MFA, and please don't give me this team chemistry crap, great players are great players, and playing with your friends is yesterdays news, good night my moronic, and dangerous pals!
Matchfit unstoppable-, PDA the underdog.I like it.I hope its true.
Are you really going?Thanks
Honest question and no I am not the wildcat coach or parent or have anything to do with that club for that matter.I would like to know about ajax.Are the parents ok with the new players being moved up to the north team before there daughter?Isnt that the promise to the south players you may be brought up to the ecnl team?I do not understand if these new players are really in fact being moved up.It does not say much about pda's training right?Taking girls trained from elsewhere who were never trained a season by pda and moving them up before girls they have been training for years?So when girls from other clubs come over will they then start replacing ajax girls?Not saying much much for the players DEVELOPMENT academy is it if they are taking girls who were developed by other teams before girls they have been "developing" for years.If this is not a wake up call to ajax parents I don't know what is.
8:18.I agree with you.You don't know what is.
Only thing promised to you at any ecnl club is a chance to compete. And you may always fall victim to a better player coming into the program. This is ECNL.Nothing is promised, everything is earned.
To 7:44.I 'm interested in why you would want to limit the players from moving up to the higher team during the year if they have earned it.?- And if US soccer permits this movement to facilitate development in the player?.
7:37No problem with the call up to "the big club"The up and down is silly. And dangerous, I'd think - if the player is playing too much.MF situation - are they letting the family call the shots in order to keep the player? That is the impression.

So what team will the MF DOC be watching this weekend?If PDA happens to win both games against MF, changes in staff could be taking place in near future is the buzz.
EDP Cup- Why did FSA FC U13 GIRLS ELITE 01 (#1 in CT) play in the FOURTH bracket while FSA FC U13 GIRLS PRE-ECNL 01 (#5 IN CT) AND FSA FC U13 GIRLS NPL 01 (#26 n CT) played in TOP bracket? This dumped all the GS points of CT #1 team into the fourth bracket???

9:19 You see this is the problem - people will knock GS and the EDP Cup instead of FSA?The question is why did FSA give their #1 GS Account to their 3rd team instead of their ECNL or NPL after they merged with Soccer Plus?How is GS stupid or a horrible tool for putting their 3rd team in the lower flight even if they are ranked #1 in CT?You will have many variables that mess up GS - the tool itself is great - Use their software and they manually enter leagues and Tournaments.They don't control the CLUBS and the Team Coaches/Managers. Some give their higher ranked GS accounts to lesser teams (FSA) - Others play under different team names (Manalapan/NJCSA) while others have multiple accounts open for the same team (ISA).
Seems FSA Navy's points went to FSA Elite when the 2 new FSA teams were formed.FSA ECNL and NPL are better teams than ELITE - is all you need to knowEDP put teams in brackets based on ability, not points. Someone will benefit, true - as they "brought their points" to the 4th flight.Just know ELIYE is the third team. GS cant fix it, having a lesser team ranked 1 in CT - since they go by points strictly - unless they take away all of Elite's points and give then to ECNL/spread them equally among top two or all three FSAs....etc..
8:18Add the Manhattan tournament.....2/27-3/1
9:31 Navy is the ECNL team while White is the NPL team correct?So it looks like the Elite account should have been the ECNL AccountThe ECNL account should have been the NPL account The NPL account should have been the Elite account.Very easy to fix - FSA just needs to explain to GS and have them fix everything behind the scenes for a small fee of course if FSA cares. Which I'm sure they don't care because they know who ECNL/NPL/ELITE are and that's all that matter like 9:31 said. Forget the rest and how it impacts the lesser teams.Look at the gift teams will get and how the rankings will be skewed. You will have many teams earn 300 + 30 bonus points for beating a 3rd team - that usually comes with beating a top team. Plus lots of teams like Primo this week will benefit from the 10,000 points they bring to the flight calculations.Good stuff
October 15 @ 10:20amare Bethesda brackets confirmed?where do I find them.thx
My question wasn't "knocking" EDP or GS but was just a question. I did not understand which team was actually their #1, #2, and #3 teams which based on the info provided I now understand.
We are not going to the MSC Tourney, they have already told us, and to be honest I am relieved, nothing good can come from that, nothing. Its going to be freezing, mark my words!
NopeBrackets and schedules not set yet.
10:23 my bad that wasn't directed at your question. Just in general GS always gets knocked for not having accurate rankings. All i was trying to say is the tool is good they do more than their share to manually enter Tournaments and Leagues not using their software. But at the end of the day it comes down to the people who control the team accounts. 10:21 My guess is they are not - if they were they would be published. Don't post the link - they always get disabled after someone posts the link.
GS are idiots if they didnt know FSA Navy points went to ECNL
Who are he idiots? GS or FSA for not setting their accounts up the right way?
I miss the GAKSTER. Where did all of those girls go from that "great" team?
Maybe it's me, but it sure sounds like someone is upset about being ripped off of their precious FSA Gotsoccer points.. Maybe a finalist?
No its you!Points going away for most ECNL teams shortly.They will drift off to top 25 or so.Not many GS tournaments in future
Most GS points are earned from leagues that reward teams for match wins as well Fall and Spring final standings.If you look at some of the higher ranked NJ teams in GS points, they were gained in league play. Not much earned in Tournaments.
