db10 wrote:The simple fact is that this is a tournament, a bad bounce, a bad call can change everything. We also need to remember that some of the teams outside of NTX are built for these tournaments while the NTX teams are built for the grueling season. Not many teams face the battle each game that the top 8-10 provide. Let's be honest any of those top 8 could make noise on a national stage. The key in a tournament is to be flexible and be able to change tactics if what you're doing isn't working. Will a team like Elite or DTS be willing to do this? Will elite's D carry the ball out of their half rather than trying to force long passes? Can DTS adjust if they face a team as athletic as them that know how to close down forwards in the open field?

True, a bad bounce here, a bad bounce there and anything can happen.. I'm not going to pull the 10/11 yrs old card.  They will make mistakes and adjustments will be needed/made. That's the beauty of great/good teams, they make it happen.  Regardless of who Elite plays, they will have to bring their "A" game and vice versa..

Beachgirl71,

Something is fishy!! Maybe you can help me out here.  

LP Elite is best by a goal and maybe toe over every other team in NTX.  Athletic, technical and good size.  Battle tested.  
Texans South is very athletic and tons of speed but not as composed at LP and 2 goals weaker than then every day of the week.
Texans are very good as well, more technical than South but 2-3 goals worse than LP.
Spirit should be able to compete here at about the same level as Texans.  

Bottom line is that it's LP Elite's to lose and I don't know if the Texas teams will be the one to do it IF it has a chance of happening.  LP is the real deal.

How will you know all this if you're not from NTX or are you?  Suspect

More Suspect cion

Group winners:
A: Dallas Texans
B: Liverpool Elite
C: Liverpool Premier
D: AFC Lightning <-- from Georgia

I'm not so convinced that teams ranked 1-4 in most big soccer states (not just Texas) are that different from each other.

Good soccer in Georgia and Florida typically. That Georgia team doesn't have much in GotSoccer but it looks like they play a lot of good teams from the southeast per soccerincollege.com. Anyone seen them play?

That Georgia team on the flip side is ranked 9th in the country on soccerincollege.com. Let's put it into perspective even further. LP Elite, the team everyone is saying a world beater

The Georgia team coming to Copa plays that top Georgia team all the time and it appears they are very evenly matched.

That is 6 times you mentioned Georgia in your few posts..

You referenced LP Elite "the team everyone is saying a world beater".. Either you're not from NTX or you are and just stirring the pot.  Like I asked CowboyBill, which one is it Cool ?

There are a few that will like to see LP Elite lose; its not if, but when.. We have no problem with that. A team that beat us, is just better than us that day. We shake hands, move on and prepare for next game.

Any states play very few tournaments that use GotSoccer.   Disney for example is one of the only tournaments in the southeast that I know of.  That Georgia team on the flip side is ranked 9th in the country on soccerincollege.com.  Let's put it into perspective even further.  LP Elite, the team everyone is saying a world beater, played Braddock Roads from Va twice, last time at Jefferson Cup and both were one goal LP elite wins.  But very close games.  That same Braddock team played the top Ga team at Disney and the Braddock team was very fortunate to escape with a tie.  The

Don't let the gotsoccer bias mislead you and don't give the cup to any north Texas teams just yet.

As was pointed out above, not using GotSoccer but a different ranking system that is much more accurate. And define compete. I think there will be a few teams from out of state that are in this tournament that can "compete", but I don't think any of them will win it unless they're bringing hired guns, and even then. I also believe that a few of them will get embarrased.

CowboyBill wrote:Track records are there for what to be supported?  The fact that a bunch of Texas teams play each other a lot and everyone appears to agree on the order I which those teams fall?  What's that have to do with the other teams coming from out of state?  There is little to no track record there or logical correlation to the Texas teams.  

That's like arguing that I'm the best team in the Big 12 because I beat up on the other teams around me all the time but I never play a team from another conference so I consider myself King of the World.

The world is not flat.  There is more out there than the bubble some of you guys appear to live in.  LP Elite has played out of state a little bit show me where the others have.  

Well Cowboy, let me flip it around on you and ask you to show me what out of state teams in this age group (other than from OK) have played here? I'm genuinely not aware, so please tell me. I guess then after this tourney there should be a little more track record and logical correlation.
