    What a joke, so more LA Galaxy and FCGS players than TFA and LAFC bench players over TFA starters. Thank goodness it isn't a political thing. US Soccer needs to stop running on the typical American Jock recruiting mind set and start focusing on those with soccer smarts and vision along with athleticism.

    Surf surprised Galaxy by scoring three goals in the 1st half, Surf is not a bad team at all. Surf CB fouled a player and NS scored on a free kick which put Galaxy on the score map. I felt the level of play was equal on both sides of the field, Surf lacks a little bit of strength in the middle and right side.. Galaxy was flat most of the game until PR was able to come in to be a game changer, he will be a player to watch this season.
    Exciting good game , as the DA likes to say "meaningful match"...

    Here's predicts for this weekend (9/14/19). Home teams listed first. Am still dialing in the accuracy leveraging last season's results. Thanks for the patience with the this experiment.

    Los Angeles
    Legends 1 vs TFA 9
    LAFC 2 vs Pateadores 1 - match to watch note: Pats were pretty strong last year and the result against Santa Barbara looks like they're continuing that trend. Will be a good test for both teams
    Ventura Fusion 4 vs LAUFA 2
    FC Golden State 4 vs Santa Barbara 1
    Real So Cal 2 vs LA Surf 3 - match to watch
    note: both teams are solidly in the LA tier 2 (which is not a backhanded compliment when the LA group includes LAFC and TFA). Be interesting to see how they do against each other.

    San Diego
    Albion 4 vs Arsenal 2
    Strikers 3 vs San Diego Surf 2 - match to watch
    LAGSD 2 vs San Diego SC 0
    Murrieta Surf 0 vs Nomads 0
    note: the algo is not showing the Nomads any love despite their win last weekend. hopefully they continue the trend and show the algo who's boss...




    size_five, got it. thx for the heads-up and best of luck this weekend. how was the match against the Pats last weekend?

    Kante, are you going to start including the two AZ teams playing in the SD division?

    yup, just waiting for data, in probably about five games or so. the predicts for the other teams are largely based on last year's results with some tweaking.

    Golden State beat SB: 9-2 .. I think
    I have friend on both Real and Premier:
    Real So Cal Parents: We dominated possession and shut them out. They couldn’t handle our middle.
    Premier Parents: We dominated possession 3/4 of the game , couldn’t put it in the back of the net. 2 of the 3 goals the goalie gave to Real .

    Interesting how both sides see the game.

    LA Surf dominated first 23 min of the game, then RSC introduced smaller lineup with their subs (7 came in with ZS who actually played that part of the match as def mid), from that point on RSC had clear possession and Surf was totally indolent for the rest of the game...last goal was totally mistake by the former galaxy keeper/now surf's backup goalie, but Surf's defense could not contain TR, CC, or ZS later on.

    Here's actuals vs predicts for this last weekend (9/14/19). Home teams listed first. Am still dialing in the accuracy leveraging last season's results. Thanks for the patience with this experiment.

    Los Angeles
    predict: Legends 1 vs TFA 9. Actuals: Legends 2 vs TFA 10

    predict: LAFC 2 vs Pateadores 1. Actuals: LAFC 4 vs Pateadores 0
    note: not much in this game report. Last year’s match at Cal State LA was a little more wide open but similar result 6-2 for LAFC. Would have thought that the Pats would have done a bit better. Any commentary on this one?


    predict: Ventura Fusion 4 vs LAUFA 2. Actuals: Ventura Fusion 6 vs LAUFA 3
    note: Ventura off to a decent start and could be a contender solid Tier 3 contender (below TFA & LAFC at Tier 1, and then also below LAG & RSC at Tier 2). Tbd.


    predict: FC Golden State 4 vs Santa Barbara 1. Actuals: FC Golden State 1 vs Santa Barbara 1
    note: Santa Barbara looks a little better w/ the improvement starting about mid-May of last season but FCG is not all that (e.g., defense has consistently declined since last season and the decline is continuing this year). Neither team may have much impact this season.


    predict: Real So Cal 2 vs LA Surf 3. Actual: Real So Cal 3 vs LA Surf 0
    note: strong performance by RSC. TR - coming back to RSC from LAFC – has four goals in two games so far. RSC’s match next week against LA Galaxy will be one to watch. Here’s commentary from match (thx tres leches and Zvezdas!)


    “Real So Cal Parents: We dominated possession and shut them out. They couldn’t handle our middle.
    Premier Parents: We dominated possession 3/4 of the game, couldn’t put it in the back of the net. 2 of the 3 goals the goalie gave to Real .”


    “LA Surf dominated first 23 min of the game, then RSC introduced smaller lineup with their subs (7 came in with ZS who actually played that part of the match as def mid), from that point on RSC had clear possession and Surf was totally indolent for the rest of the game...last goal was totally mistake by the former galaxy keeper/now surf's backup goalie, but Surf's defense could not contain TR, CC, or ZS later on.”

    One item that could be tough for RSC is that they’re listing 19 players on the roster, and it sounds like they’re doing line change substitutions (seven came in). Tough on development, and maintaining momentum in the match.

    Any other commentary here?


    San Diego
    predict: Albion 4 vs Arsenal 2. Actuals: Albion 0 vs Arsenal 3
    note: nice and unexpected win for Arsenal. Arsenal has shown consistent offensive improvement since last year that looks like it’s continuing this season, and look like they have made some defensive adjustments this season. Not sure what the story is with Albion. JL – averaged about 1 goal a game last year and had all four against SDSC last week – was quiet. Off game or good play by Arsenal?

    Any other commentary or insights?


    predict: Strikers 3 vs San Diego Surf 2. Actual: Strikers 2 vs San Diego Surf 0
    note: not much in the game report. Any other commentary or insights?


    predict: LAGSD 2 vs San Diego SC 0. Actual: LAGSD 3 vs San Diego SC 3
    note: per game report, looks like an exciting match. SDSC went down 0-3 but came back with three goals after the 50th minute. Any other commentary or insights?


    predict: Murrieta Surf 0 vs Nomads 0. Actuals: Murrieta Surf 1 vs Nomads 0
    note: looks like algo was close to spot on, with Murrieta’s goal coming at the 75th minute. Any other commentary or insights?

    You definitely have to take the anecdotal data on here about matches with a grain of salt. Highly subjective. I have seen some of the matches discussed on here and thought, what match were they watching. We all have our perspectives and bias.

    here's predicts for this weekend. home team is listed first. am including predicts for the AZ games but most of the AZ team data is from YSR ... most of the data for the other teams is still from last season, so insert all previous caveats here.

    Los Angeles
    TFA 8 vs LA Galaxy 3

    Ventura Fusion 3 vs Pateadores 4 - match to watch
    note: this match is Ventura's best measuring stick to date to see how they match up in a new age group. Pateadores have underperformed a bit this season relative to last season but still look like they're in the tier just below TFA and LAFC.

    LAUFA 1 vs FC Golden State 3

    Santa Barbara SC 2 vs Legends 2

    Real So Cal 2 vs LA Galaxy 2 - match to watch
    note: Real SoCal seems to be on the cusp of breaking out of the lower tier. LA Galaxy added a number of new players at the end of last season and saw immediate improvement in results. This match will be interesting to watch.

    San Diego
    Arsenal 2 vs San Diego SC 2

    note: this match could be an opportunity for Arsenal's trend line to continue up and move up a tier competitively.

    Real Salt Lake AZ 3 vs OC Surf 1

    note: all the AZ matches are based mostly on YSR rankings data, so ...

    San Diego Surf 2 vs Murrieta Surf 1

    note: SD Surf don't look like they're quite what they were last season. Could be an opportunity for Murrieta to grab some unexpected points.

    SC del Sol 2 vs Strikers 2

    note: all the AZ matches are based mostly on YSR rankings data, so ...

    Real Salt Lake AZ 2 vs Strikers 3
    note: all the AZ matches are based mostly on YSR rankings data, so ...

    SC del Sol 5 vs OC Surf 2
    note: all the AZ matches are based mostly on YSR rankings data, so ...
