I would not discount Fever yet...

I see them coming out on top of this group, but they will not have an easy go of it - these teams are all coming to play.

Verses the tournaments when they only would come for the ice cream social and not to play Smile

Just looked at the brackets and I honestly have no clue who is going to come out on top in this thing. There's really not a ton seperating the very best team from the worst team. If I were to guess I'd say LP Barnes comes out on top. Fever probably has the best player in the tournament but if that's all you have then you really don't have much when you get to this stage in the game because anyone can man mark someone completely out of a game.

I'm more curious to see how everyone looks after so much time off and then I'm curious to how much the weather is going to play a part in teams getting in the practices that they need to get to tune up for qualifying. Hope your team has an indoor facility they can practice in because running around in the slop (although fun and at times beneficial) and trying to improve isn't easy at the highest level, so it's even more difficult at this level.

Why do you continue to throw jabs at Fever?

Still at it with the academy posturing and clawing...  
Clearly you have not done any homework and are just guessing (as you say), especially in regards to your comments regarding specific teams.

In these QT warmup / seeding tournaments, we will see a massive reality check as to the gap in level of play between a number of teams...  reality will soon over ride all the petti posturing.


Do bring your notes next Monday, and feel free to leave the 'guessing' at the door.

At the risk of sounding like another guesser,
...I see Barnes, Fever Black, and Sparta all going to the semis.
Sparta and Fever Black should be a great matchup.
Let's not overlook Odyssey....could very well be a wildcard.

As for taking notes and 'homework'....I'll have to look on GrandTx's paper because
I'll be at Tut watching that field of 40+
03 teams.

Continue to throw jabs at Fever? Are you talking to me? I think I've mentioned Fever twice in the past 6 months or so maybe. Once last week when talking about teams not playing and it effecting their seeding, saying that if I were Fever not playing might scare me a little bit (not a concern now that they are playing) and then just now saying that they have the best player in the tournament but essentially if no one else steps up its not going to matter, not a jab at them, but a fact about them AND the game of soccer in general. Now maybe you've picked up some new players and with some good additions I don't see any reason why Fever can't be back in the Top 10 again.

Um, i think anyone that picks any of these games is simply guessing, kind of the point of a thread asking for predictions (definition means to foretell the future, if that doesn't mean guess then I don't know what does). If anyone really thinks anyone truly knows how a group of 10 year old girls are going to perform from one day to the next I'd be most impressed. Of the teams in this tournament I've watched all but 3 of them (none since signing day so, like everyone else I have no idea if they are all the same players or not but still more than most folks). Of all the teams I've seen most recently I'd say LP Barnes looks to be playing the best, then FWFC, then I'd say Fever.

So once again, with there being so little difference between most of the teams, flip a coin and pick your winner. I guessed LP Barnes would come out on top, if you don't like it guess some other team. Heck, if Fever won I would be shocked at all, wouldn't be shocked if Barnes didn't make the semi's either.

I think "keepinitreal" has some reading comprehension challenges... I think everyone commenting (for the most part) is on the same page.

didnt see a lot of possession but did see a lot of fouling as a general style of play, take out the top player and they get average quick...

I think Sting Goodman is ranked #1 when it comes to fouling as general style of play... I do agree that Fever would be top 5

There are football teams in NTX that don't hold a can hold a candle to Cruz and how physical they play, however wasn't there a team who had the cops called on a parent or something this year? Thought I heard that recently but sadly I've heard so many strange soccer stories that they all start merging together.

None as jacked up as the story from Brazil where the ref was stoned and decapitated by fans after he gave a red card to a player and then stabbed & killed the player when he refused to leave the field. I still can't quite grasp that one but yet it happened.
