WCP Cup Forum

Similar to what Team Canada had last year, the forum will be a place to discuss everything that is happening in the Cup. It just makes for an easier way to discuss issues and more people can get involved.

The link to the forum will be on the sidebar with the other sites.

I encourage people to register, as it includes extra benefits like editing and poll creating, plus arguments between a bunch of "anonymous" just let people hide behind the anonymous tag while saying whatever they want.

i saw laos lose to ukraine.. i don't think laos is going to be as good as they think they are. they can talk a big game but they aren't good enough to back it up

Anonymous said...

laos will be decent, they just need a little more time to get things together.

they have no offense though

i heard they pick up some sick ass player playing fwd

attacking won't be their problem... defending will

and they have to many premier players... there can't be that many people from laos

i heard that there are 10 womens teams this year. I think that's way to many, the women's games aren't exciting

Anonymous said...

the women's tourney should be held separate from the men's. no one wants to watch women's soccer.

yeah i'm pretty sure no more than 3 people on laos are actually from laos.

Who do you think the top 5 teams are going to be this year?
and does anyone think that norway has a legitimate shot of repeating ?

Anonymous said...

they have a shot. they aren't the most talented team, but anything can happen. Look at last year.

Anonymous said...

Norway has alot more skilled players then people give them credit for, and they play as a team. It's showed in this tournament that you can field an outstanding lineup filled with premier players, but if your team decides not to play as a team and play like individuals, then their skill can only get you so far. Greece is another prime example of that.
Good luck to all the teams this year, I look forward to coming out and watching again.

Premier player said...

The top 5 teams are:

1. Republic of Ireland - loads of talent, many play togehter on ACFC and in the final 2 years in a row means they are #1
2. Norway - returning champs have to be near the top. They are more skilled than people give them credit for and they played as a team. Can they do it again this year though? Ego is a strange thing and ego's tend to increase after winning.
3. England - can you say "stack your team" anyone. And we thought ROI was bad when it comes to stacking the team, these guys make ROI look like they are following the rules. Loads of talent if rumours are true but can they bring all that talent together to play as a team? Will their Saskatoon players all be able to show up for the games?
4. Greece - a solid team last year but they may have picked up more talent this year to go with good team play.
5. Ukraine - lighting it up in Exhibition and still missing some good players. The real darkhorse of the tourney.

Anonymous said...

greece # 4 thats soo bull shit, young talent lol hahaha they did dick all vs laos.. i no they where missing players but common greece fourth you might as well put bostwanna a head of them lol what joke

england had a stacked team last year
if they can play together they will be good. if they cant it just going to be a repeat of last year

ukraine is good but all prem players from the strikers... as u can see the strikers suck ball in prem...but wat i seen so far they will be in the top 7 for sure if romain shows up to play

Anonymous said...

hey we don't need romain as long we got iceberg.

we're rating soccer teams here, not who can cook the best. The only way greece will be top 5 is if there is a cooking challenge.

it is a joke. N. Ireland is just trying to spread rumors to get people to go to their games. it's not working. in fact, im gonna purposely avoid watching northern ireland because of this.

EX. OOOOOOOO did you guys hear about this guy that Greece is getting? I hear he's like the best player EVER. Look out! Oh by the way, Greece has a game at this date.

Bearcats20 said...

I hear people have been talking about me. I got an email from a friend in Regina about the talk on here. Its no joke about N. Ireland getting a player who plays college soccer in the US. Im that player. Im mike sweeney and i play for Brescia University. Im coming home to play in the WCP. Im exciting to come play in this tournament, especially with all the talent. Looking forward to play and hope you give a good preformance.

Brescia University? May as well pick someone up from the U of R...
Were you even on the roster? Can't say I see your name on the list. And it is the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference... You only have 3 other teams in your conference. Congratulations.

Bearcats20 said...

I didnt realized you all will research Brescia's website. Since i graduated in 2005 and played from 2002-2005 I probably wouldnt see me on the roster right either. About the conference it has been changed last year to an independent conference, but when i was playing we had 7 teams and besides us there were two top 25 teams in the country in our conference. Our region section was the toughest in all of NAIA. There is only one player on the roster now that i played with. I have played with and against players all throughout the world, which some went pro after college. The experience here has been great. I'm not on here to brag. I just found out tonight about all this other crap being said about me. I'm just coming home to play in this tourney to have fun and enjoy the festivities.

Anonymous said...

Give me a break. Brescia University. I know about 50 players who could easily make that team and thats just out of the under 16 league. We no longer want to here about you or N. ireland. Please take it upon yourself to destroy your computer.

yeah but when N.Ireland people are claiming to get some super all-star who will catapult them into the second stage, people are gonna want to know who he is. And when they lie about it...well that ain't cool.

why doesn't everyone grow up....I know Mike sweeney form awhile ago when he played here....he is a good player when i played with him so i can just imagine that he has only got better. People who are being rude to him need to understand that you can be a great player and not have goals or assists.....I know guys that control the whole tempo of a game everygame and yet don't dcore or assist that much....That is soccer....and don't worry Mike....they are just made because they can't play soccer in a higher league.....too much time on there hands if they have to research a player and all of his stats to see if they are better than them or not.....I hope you play against his team and run circles around him

Anonymous said...

the problem is with people who kept saying some great saviour for N.Ireland was coming along to lift the team on his shoulders. Problem is, one player will not make your team a lot better. He'll help for sure, but they shouldn't be going around being all full of themselves now. With the number of players on this size of a field, your team needs to have heart and hustle to win. That's it.

And don't feel bad for Mike. Mike should be happy people are so interested him. I'm sure he is, too. Hell, think of the attention he'll get now.

Of course, Northern Ireland did the stupid thing and started heaping praise on him and letting everyone know how amazing he is. Gee, I wonder who teams will be watching for when they play Northern Ireland? That will probably cost them their first game. Alright you've got a guy who will either control the middle or back? Alright, now we can all adjust our game plans NOW instead of at half when we play you.

I guess they were just too excited to contain themselves.

Everyone should just remember that Norway killed N.I. 10-0 last year. It was 6-0 by halftime and they decided not to try for the rest of the game but still scored 4 more. One player might miake that score 8-0 but that's pushing it. N.I. just doesn't have enough skill to compete with the defending champs

I'll correct that comment. It was 4-0 at the half, and a cold keeper was put in for the 2nd. Enough said.

how can northern ireland talk smack when they have only won 2-4 games over the course of 3 yrs???? horrible record for a horrible club

Kirk said...

I think I will just add a little something here, I think the last point is actually great point, NI has not done well in the past so it is hard for people to imagine that they will be a force this year. However, we do want this to resemble the world cup, not a premiere mens league with four good teams. If every year the top teams are the same teams will start dropping out and people will stop watching because it will become predictable. The real world cup has favorites and they change from year to year because of new players, young squads and developing teams, I think if we keep that in mind this tournament will be extremely successful and worth watching all the time. I also hope that friends will start playing for other teams, and lean more toward their heritage that way, during regular season play you get to play with your bud, but for the WCP you play against, just like the real thing. If more teams can be competitive more teams will want to join because there will be a realistic shot at the title. One of the best part of last years tournament was that Germany and El Salvador were eliminated early. I did not want to see them go because they are strong teams but it made it seem realistic that power houses can be beaten, and underdogs can pull through (Greece and Laos). I think before we start going crazy and labelling teams as shitty we should wait until tournament time and then make our judgements afterwards because I for one would like to see a new team in the quarter finals. That is just my two cents.

Dave L said...

I don't understand why everyone is telling everyone else to shut up and wait for the tournament.. the whole point of this blog is to TALK about the tournament BEFORE it starts to build up some excitement.. if you want people to shut up you can always choose to not read what they are saying, no matter how immature and pointless it might be.. As for NOI, it's a new year with many new young players, they may come out and play well or they could very well have too much of a mix of young and inexperienced players with a few experienced players with a bit of an ego but that is what I love about the tourney.. you never know what to expect but we all still enjoy predicting it anyways

Anonymous said...

You want predictions? I will give you predictions:

1. Mike Collins will get booed.
2. Kevin Hollness will not be able to fit in his jersey and they will have to sew 2 jerseys together to make it fit.
3. Greece will evolve into not just hacking the other team, in an effort to become even more aggressive they will start hacking each other.
4. A civil war will be declared in Laos and all the Laotians??? on the team will have to return to their country leaving . . . actually only one member of their team would leave so they still would have a team.
5. Nigeria will score one goal in the entire tournament but unfortunately it will be an own goal.
6. Ukraine will become known as Urine for their piss colored jerseys they have, boy did they look ugly last year.
7. Kevin Murphy will finally come out of the closet.
8. Northern Ireland will win it all baby!!!

here are some predictions

1. The Husdal brothers will be hated after the tournament and everyone will realize how much deuche bags they are.

2. Laos will not make it out of there group stage because they will eat too much teppyan.

3. England will have there "B" squad play friendlies up in saskatoon.

4. Team Strikers and Yorkton,I mean Ukraine will make Sheva (Roman) play no matter what.

5. Greece will sell there food at the tourny.

6. Ireland will play one game drunk.

7. Scotland will kick Bob Maltman off the team.

8. Felipe on Portugal will get 2 red cards.

9. Germany will get in a fight with one team in the tourny

10. Nigeria will break down and pull out there dance moves and have a dance off competition

what do you have to back up that england and ROI won't finish as high as people think? you can't just randomly say things like that with no information to support it

Dave said...

Do you have proof that they WILL finish as high as people say? Nobody has proof because it's an opinionated blogsite not a library.. no one knows what is really gonna happen so throw around predictions and have fun with it rather than bitch and complain because not everyone chooses to think the team with the best players is going to win

Anonymous said...

i don't have proof saying they will finish highly, but i guess you already knew that because you answered your own question. i do although have reason's behind why i think they will finish highly. any remotely smart person should think the same. looking at the roster of england or ROI is reason enough to believe they will finish highly. i was asking for reason's why you don't think they would. i'll give 5 reasons why i think england will finish in top 5.
1. Ronny Torres
2. Mark Korthius
3. Kevin Murphy
4. Josh Northey
5. Kurt Samways
Now i'll give 5 reasons why i think ROI will finish top 5
1. Mike Collins
2. Tristan Manz
3. Brett Bachelu
4. Benno Looft
5. Mark Wernikowski

What do you have to support your theory on why either of these teams won't do well?

Premier Player said...

I don't want to be negative or anything but in regards to England, who is Kurt Samways? Is he Frodo's buddy? And I don't think Tristan Manz is a top 5 player. He's good but c'mon, every team has a player as good as he is. I think the same probably goes for Wernikowski as well. Good defender but nothing better than a lot of the other teams. The rest of your picks are pretty good though. As for England, my opinion why they won't win it is they don't seem to have a core of players who have played together. They just have a bunch of skilled players. One of the reasons ROI has been so good is most of those players have played together for years and know each other.

Dave said...

By all means back up your opinions.. I never said they wouldn't do good, that was an anonymous, I was just saying what I said because you were saying that you can't go around randomly stating opinions with no fact when really, you can.. people have opinions and can say whatever they want.. you saying they will do good simply because of some really strong players means nothing to me either.. look at England in Euro this year (or should I say NOT in Euro this year)..
I will give you 5 reason why they should have made it to Euro..
1. Wayne Rooney
2. Steven Gerrard
3. Frank Lampard
4. Joe Cole
5. Peter Crouch
But they lost out to Romania's no name squad..

Anonymous said...

good point... but they are playing accomplished professional players... and england never wins anyways haha. as for the other person who said england has never played together... the core of their team played together on the accelerators this year.
as for every team has a player as good as tristan manz... so your saying every team has a player that has played keeper at a national level? slight slip on your part there.

Anonymous said...

If u had to pick an all star team which players are in best form right now?

Premier Player said...

I stand corrected, I thought you were talking about the forward with the last name of Manz. The Keeper named Manz is good but not the best. That would go to Evan Campbell or Yorkton's keeper. Manz may be 3rd if he's lucky but he definitely would be in the top 5.

Anonymous said...

name some keepers that are better then tristan manz? and how is he not a top 5 player?

Anonymous said...

how do you rank the keepers premier player?

Premier Player said...

Read the post you idiot, I said he is in the top 5 but he would be lucky to be #3. No doubt Campbell is better than him, Yorkton's keeper is better than him, Annibal and Otitoju are as good as him and I'm sure there is one other who I can't think of who is at least as good as him. A one-armed midget with a wooden leg could keep a clean sheet playing for ACFC. Manz is solid don't get me wrong but he's nothing special.

Anonymous said...

you obviously never played at a high level to identify a keeper so why don't you just leave your opinions to the out players

Premier Player said...

Good comeback Bozo. Obviously I have played at a high level because my name is Premier Player. By the way, JD Blakely (think that is his spelling) is also better than Manz and I assume JD is coming back to Regina for the tourney. Hope this doesn't hurt your feelings even more Tristan Manz's boyfriend. By the way, how did your favorite player do last year in the final? What about the semi-final? Are you even sure Manz is the starter on ROI this year because he wasn't last year. How do you explain that?

Anonymous said...

JD is wayy overrated, hes only good in indoor nets and aganist u15's

Anonymous said...

guh anyone who thinks jd is better than manz needs to pull their head out of their butt. The keepers are aren't considered better than the other, but they do have classes. Of the ones being talked about here--

Best: manz, campbell, krause
Decent: blakely
meh: anibal

never heard of otitoju. whos he?

Anonymous said...

you are a premier player who do you you play for FC Fuhl. you're a fool alright. Tristan is one of the BEST goalies in the league......... trust me i have played with and against them all. Anyways if you could pick any 5 star players from the tournament who would they be and why?

Premier Player said...

Manz is not in Campbell and Krause's (Yorkton Goalie I assume) class. Put him with the rest of the goalies. You still haven't answered my question about if Manz is so good why was he on the bench last year? His own team didn't think he was good enough and played the other keeper. I don't want to trash Manz because he's good but c'mon, don't build him up to much. It's not like he's from Norhtern Ireland or anything :)

As for the all-stars, here they are:
Looft - ROI
Bachelu - ROI
Payette - Norway
Husdal - Norway
Yahni - Greece
Campbell - Laos

I know that is 6 players but they were the best last year.

Anonymous said...

you think husdal was good last year?
now we know your rankings mean nothing

Premier Player said...

Norway won last year, who was their best player? Payette was good of course but who controlled the midfield? Related to this fact is he was probably the best player on the ACFC U18 team (with the possible exception of Roman). Norway deserve at least two guys in the rankings you would think. Just because Husdal is a jerk to play against doesn't mean he's a bad player.

Who do you pick as the best? It's easy to bitch about other's picks but not come up with your own. Or are you the guy who is in love with Manz and will just pick him as the only all star?

I have had enough of premier player. To say husdal controlled the midfield is ridiculous. Midfielders are expected to defend as well as ATTACK.
If someone could tell me a time where Stefan scored or even set up an important goal I would love to hear it. For me it looked like Coons pulled the strings in Norways midfield.

Don't ask everyone to dumb down their speech just so you can understand it.. Apparently you also don't understand why women's soccer is important to regina.. Soccer is small and has a lot of growing too do here so anyone who wants to play should be more than welcome.. Maybe if idiots like you would support women's soccer rather than bitch about it, it would probably grow that much faster..

Also, you criticize James' opinion for disagreeing with yours, saying everyone is allowed to have an opinion.. Do you realize how hypocritical (hi-poe-cri-ti-cal) that is..

I'm sure most of the women that are playing soccer on TV could work the majority of men's players in Regina.. Imagine what most of them would think if they ever watched most of Regina's Men's Premier games..

Enough about the womens tournament Clock Cleaner should just build a link for it. What teams would be in the pool of death?

Anonymous said...

ok heres one, jamaiaca, botswana, chile and poland all teams are super power houses

dave said...

I am not arguing women's rights.. I am just talking about what is good for soccer, and that is supporting the sport rather than bashing it.. But apparently I've gotten into an argument with a bunch of four year old kids who resort to personal attacks rather than a real discussion so I apologize to the rest of the readers for even bringing that all up and I will drop that topic and get back to the WCP Cup..

I think with the group of death, the toughest possible scenario would be ROI, England, Ukraine and then any two of Greece, Germany, Scotland, Nigeria, or Portugal.

how do you plan on predicting the pool of death?

dave said...

That is just what I think would be the most difficult possible pool.. I know it is all based on a draw

how about you play in thong....that might make your game more interesting as well!!!


from a female player!!!!!

I cant wait to see Portugal this yr i think there going to be great, Fellippe can socre anywhere on the field on free kicks!

jingo jango bingo bango said...

felipe is one of the worst soccer players i've seen in my entire life. he comes to the game thinking he's in the NBA wearing his leggings. then all he does is flop around on the field when people run within 5 feet of him

Anonymous said...

yeah, no kidding he should go to pool with all that diving ability. and if by scoring free kicks you mean shitting himself then yes you are right. he is awful.

Anonymous said...

I wouldn't call him awful.. he is a good player until he starts complaining then the game becomes all about the ref.. but he still has some skill

Clock Cleaner said...

I've cleaned up some of the comments, most of which were just degrading insults.

But...I will not completely censor this site and delete every negative comment. I'm not going to bar people from talking about something they like or dislike. People are free to say what they want, and I will keep it that way. The only thing I ask is that you at least put some thought into your arguments. Don't just simply insult people.

Laos Vs Portugal said...

I was watching the Laos Vs Portugal game tonight and I have to say that Portugal was looking pretty good. They are a little disorganized but if they can tighten up the gaps during their transition and shifting they have a good chance of getting close to top 5. Laos, does look like they have some talent. However, you can see that Pancho has tried to change some of their style of play and I do not think it is working for them. Laos, should be a fast team, especially during transition, but now that Pancho is there you can see he is trying to slow the game down way too much. Their first option they chose everytime they gained possession in the back was to pass the ball backwards except once, and that happen to be a quick long ball from Tony to some little guy up front, who had a great chance because they caught Portugal ball watching. My advise, to both team is that Portugal needs to tighten up in the middle of the field, and Laos you need to go back to what worked for you last year, speed of play/quick counter attacks.

Who's got the best midfield for this year? I think Norway. They can pull from Josh Patterson, Stefan Husdal, Adam Rolfe and Adam Coons. All four can score from way out and they can dish to Adam Payette all game too if they need to. Only other team that can compete is England

jingo jango bingo bango said...

yeah, ROI has nothing in the middle

Anonymous said...

You heard it hear first, Ukraine will have the best midfield if you take into account all the players and not just the starting 4. But the starting 4 look pretty good with Roman, Ferridge, Shuba and whoever else they throw out there. All solid defensively too.

fuck man as u can see laos was missen 8 of there key players
they came back with there a few back up players...
evan wasnt in net , if he was he would of schooled Portugal .. and did u see how cheap Portugal played
hand ball on there 1st goal and pushing ... man get ur fact straight be for u bash us man ...3-2 wasnt bad for laos playing a bunch of player that dont get to play that much

Anonymous said...

i agree with the last comment
should be 2-2 apparently u can pass the ball with ur hands to ur player
Portugal is going to be in the top ten but wonjt make it no higher then 7

Ukraine norway have some good meds...
laos has some tto
i wonder who england will have in there mid ronny kortius ....????? any one else

hey how do u guys think columbia Austria poland serbia chile Botswana italy scotland Nigeria
will do?
out of those 9 teams how woould u guys rank them. just those 9 teams

jingo jango bingo bango said...

who cares about those teams, lets stick to the teams that are exciting to watch.

Anonymous said...

I think some of the Laos players should learn to accept a little constructive criticism.. Even though I may not agree with that other guy's theory on how they should play, any time anyone says something even the least bit critical all you get is "fuck you Laos haters.. we will show you all"
We know Laos will be good this year, maybe one of the top, but more than likely around 4th again.. That's why so many people are talking about you guys.. but don't get so worked up over a little critique

Anonymous said...

what if noi england and ukraine in one pool lol hahha

Laos Vs Portugal said...

To Angry Laos person, I am not saying that Laos is bad, they will probably finish very well. As for the score I could really care less because it was a friendly match I was just watching your movement and style. plus the goalie you had in net handled it well. All I wanted you to take from my comment was move the ball quicker and forward rather then backwards all the time when you gain possession in your defensive 3rd. Anyway, Laos will do well. Good Luck

jingo jango bingo bango said...

quit being so nice to laos, i would love to see them lose just so they can keep their mouths shut. i'd say they are the cockiest team in the tournament and i want to see some mediocre team beat them to put them in their place.

Anonymous said...

Laos is definitely the cockiest team. They think that because they got lucky last year they're an actual contender this year. No chance. That team has way too many players that choke in big games

Premier player said...

I think it is wrong to say Laos got lucky last year, they beat some good teams and only lost 1 - 0 to ROI (yes I know that ROI had a red card and were 1 man down for much of the 2nd half but they weren't dominating Laos when the had 9 men either). Laos are a good team that needed a little luck to get through but still deserved to be there. Every team needed luck. ROI was a great team but they didn't play a good team all tournament until Laos. They were lucky to have the easiest pool by far and their first playoff game was against Portugal! I don't think Laos will get as far this year but they are one of the top 8 teams and can beat any team in the tourney.

Anonymous said...

Ukraine has the best mid? well they lost ferridge and Roman is out so they suck now,

Anonymous said...

Laos is still good. They aren't really cocky...when have they talked smack? Everyone is bashing them for no good reason. The Laos player up there wasn't angry at all, he just said it wasn't representative at all of the team that will show up at the tourney, and everyone gets all worked and starts saying Laos got lucky last year, they're cocky and they choke. Well...that's a little unnecessary if you ask me. They play hard and will still be one of the top teams in the tourney.

And to the last anon, where do you get your info that Ferridge isn't coming and that Roman is for sure out? I'd like to know. I've talked to them both and as far as I know they're both going to be ready to play.

ukraine will be fine even without those two

SHEVCHENKO said...

Just to update your previous comments on Mr. Manz being the only keeper to play at the "National" Level. Krause also played at that level and I think he to is better than Manz, although Manz is a good keeper his qualities aren't as good as other keepers.
As for Ukraine, I'm sure they will do fine without those 2 players, They have a termendously strong Defence. Just because England has all the who's who in Regina Soccer playing don't mean squat. Look at the real England squad who shit themselves along with Real Madrid who can't play together worth Perogies. Ukraine will be the dark ones, comin up to give teams the SHOCKA.

quotes out of team germany tonight " we will beat jamaica "

Alright enough about Laos. If we want to talk about them lets start naming players who are not Laosian.
1. Evan Campbell

who else we got?

Anonymous said...

Robbie mintenko, chad anthony,silzer, mike veszi, some other guy from toon town, scotty myra, Bryan murrel, EJ is phillipino or something ,and Ji is japanesse,

Premier player said...

I heard Roman actually had his leg shot off and his spine was ripped out of his body. The good news is that Mike Sweeney will replace his leg and spine with a titanium alloy leg and spine that Mike Sweeney created . . . please don't tell anyone though, I don't want to start rumours!

PS I'm not making fun of you Mike Sweeney, I'm making fun of the "gossip girls" on this website.

Are there any top teams that have heritage mostly from the right country? No way for ROI, Laos, or England. I'm not sure about Norway, Germany or Ukraine

men should grow up on here and stop bashing womens soccer.

jingo jango bingo bango said...

you seriously just said that? no one was even talking about womens soccer. you should grow up and not interupt already in progress conversation. you have now lost the respect of everyone who writes on this blog. if you want people to talk about womens soccer with, go create your own website and write on it.

Anonymous said...

agreed

if you want to start the whole thing up again, that's your choice. don't interrupt the topic at hand.

jingo jango bingo bango said...

now the whole flow of that conversation has been ruined ... what else can we discuss??

Anonymous said...

You know it is as simple as scrolling up and looking at what was said last to resume the previous conversation.. It's not like we are talking in person.. people can say whatever they wanna say and if you don't wanna pay attention to it you don't have to.. you guys are the ones who chose to respond so apparently according to your reasoning, you threw this off topic even more..

Unfortunately, it is pointless to start a topic about women's soccer though because most people on here can't discuss anything meaningful without resorting to name calling and 'your-mama' type jokes

jingo jango bingo bango said...

please, for the respect of everyone who enjoys reading and writing on here, don't post anything else. your not writing anything useful, so please don't write anything at all.
the whole point of having this is so people can voice their opinions and talk up their team.. and to have people beak back and express why they don't like another team and why theirs is better.
quit writing on here unless you are going to join in with the conversation. or use your time to make your womens site that we will never visit so you won't have to worry about us making insulting comments.
thanks for wasting our time

Actually us Norway guys love women. The only reason our games were close last year is because they were on our minds so much. If we can keep them away for the three weeks of this year's tournament there should be a bunch more of those 10-0 wins
