Here We Go!

WCP Cup fever is hitting Regina again, so let's get to it.

-I encourage everyone to get a username and comment on posts, because frankly, the comments are usually the best part of this blog. Do it!

Last year's WCP Cup was full of upsets, with relatively unknown teams toppling the supposed giants. We saw favorites like Scotland, Ukraine and France all fall to relatively unknown teams like Poland, Portugal and Saudi Arabia. Is it a changing of the guard? Will these teams be able to rebound?

The answer? Not likely.

Scotland is being dissolved, with players leaving to join teams like Canada and Norway, while Ukraine has lost some players as well. France will be out to avenge their embarrassing loss to Saudi Arabia. And speaking of Saudi Arabia, will they even have a team after withdrawing from the RSA mid-season?

As usual, the lead-up to the WCP Cup promises to be very exciting. Posts will come rolling in as the rumors heat up and as dates are announced. Team registrations should be in by now, so when those are set, the next date to look forward to is the WCP Cup Draw. As soon that is announced, we'll start preparing for it.

See you in a bit!

I heard the Patterson twins will be playing with Germany this year. What I would like to know is who is playing on Scotland this year seeing as how most of their good players have left the team. I am wondering what will be the teams that will be tough to beat as well. Not too many practices have been going on at the facility so it is hard to say who has what power. If ES has the powerhouse from Saskatoon they should have another good tournament. I think France will want a rematch but I am not too sure if they will get it. I have also heard that Canada has picked up a few players as well.

I can't believe Scotland will have a team, and if they do, it will be a shadow of its former self. Poland is looking good.

Buzzinga said...

Yeah Poland will definitely be a strong contender to make a playoff push again. There recent success in WCP will most likely attract some new players that will look to make an impact.

Another interesting team to see will be England. From what I've heard they are Regina-based and are having open try-outs. Does anyone know who is running that team and who is on it?

England is made up of youth players in fact they have 10 which is the max. I believe they will not be strong this year but if they stick together maybe in the next few they will contend. The coach is the blond hair guy that works at the front desk of the facility. Not to sure his name.

It will be interesting to see them play then.

Ps. This blog is gonna suck until the draw happens as always. When is the draw by the way haha?

The Real Deal said...

I think the draw usually happens around mid March so about a month away. And Ukraine sucks, they will be destroyed this year.
