Top 5 Best Teams All Time

1. ROI 2011 -  By far the best team ever assembled and I should know. I assembled it. Having lost the year before I basically called all the top players I knew of and that was all she wrote. I don't think any team will ever amass that much talent or score that many goals in a tournament again. 

2. ROI 2009 - This was the first year that a team was really stacked or that many Saskatoon players were involved. They really revolutionized the tournament by forcing teams to look outside of the Regina talent pool. Their success was built upon a rock solid back line and a very deep roster.

3. France 2011 - Yes I know France didn't even make the final that year but I think we all remember the hype that surrounded that team. That hype was not unfounded as France stormed into the semis against ROI. They lost that game 2-1 conceding in the final minutes. France are the Dan Marino of WCP Cup. (Greatest team to never win something)

4. Laos 2010 - Laos made some big pickups in Saskatoon that included Steve Irinici, Jaycee Neufeld and most notably Josh Northey. They played a quick style where they attacked the wings and used their speed to infuriate opposing defenses. They ended up beating a very strong ROI team in a shoot out.

5. Sudan 2012 - This was tough for me to decide on. The one question that always bothers me is would Sudan have won the tournament if there were throw ins instead of kick ins? I really, really doubt it but who knows? Either way they definitely used the rules to their benefit and proved to be the best at doing what it is they do. Kick it long and head it.

......

23. Norway - Not including the first WCP Cup the worst team to have ever won it. There have surely been 22 better teams since they won so this may actually be a little high for them. Either way I don't see such a big under dog ever winning again.

Norway is such a joke. They should have never won the tournament at all. What a lucky win. Give me a break ... a goal kick to the other side of the field and a fluke header. Come on. What a huge joke. Dufus Husdal still talks about his wcp cup tournament win and will never let it go. Very stupid. I have to agree with you on that one Collins. Also hated how they celebrated and talked it up all night at the after party. The biggest joke in the history of the wcp by far.

anon 15:11 Norway had every right to celebrate and talk themselves up after they won that night. If you were in that same situation you would probably celebrate too.

Take that same team and put them in the tournament now, im sure they would have a tough time making it out of their group. The calibre of the tournament has grown and Norway has degressed.

Better hope this storm stops and the roads clear up or you may as well cancel WCP. The only good players come from Saskatoon..

the only thing that will suffer if the saskatoon players dont come is the attendance at the rainbow....

Norway is a joke. Always was, always will be.

ANON: 19:33 ... I'm pretty sure Sudan had all Calgary and Edmonton players last year and I'm also pretty sure that very good players from Winnipeg and from other parts of the Country attend the tournament. The quality of players coming from other parts of the Country are far better than the quality in Sasktoon. Wake up and smell the coffee guy. The Saskatoon players don't make this tournament. They are not all that great. I doubt people will be dissapointed if they don't show up. To be honest, I would prefer if those duds from Saskatoon don't show ... half of them are full of it. THE TOURNAMENT WILL GO ON.

Anon 21:44 you are the same guy pretending to be one of the jokers and making anonymous posts. Shut up as you are someone who can't even put their name behind their posts. Who really cares what you have to say!!
It would be better for you as a Regina player if the Saskatoon players didn't show up as the majority of them are in the top tier of players in this tournament. That isn't a opinion or a comment I am pulling out of my A$!, it is a fact.

Look Mike all we want is for you to post 6-7 new topics per day, all of which are original, credible to the tournament, interesting, strongly opinionated but unbiased, intellectual discussion generating, funny, uncontroversial and informative.
K, thanks

HEY ANON: 07:15 ...

The fact is: Saskatoon players are nothing compared to the rest of the players that come from other provinces. Saskatchewan players are weak. Do some research you tool. Sask. has won the nationals how many times compared to the other provinces. We obviously don't have the quality you are talking about. What an idiot.

You can shut up now and go cry. You definately pulled that out of your ass. It has no credibility at all. WEAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh and Peter ... one more thing ... why don't you fools stick to your crappy Saskatoon tournaments. Why bother coming to Regina to play. We don't want you anyways. Oh wait ... you guys can't get a wcp cup thing going because your organization skills are like my ass. Regina tournament ... should be for Regina players. Why should we allow you cry babies to come play when all you do is play it up and think you are so awesome. Get a life.

BAD ROAD CONDITIONS ... THE CLOWNS FROM SASKATOON ARE IN FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DON'T PLAY WITH MOTHER NATURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If saskatchewan players are weak, how did they win Nationals in 2011? Doesnt that mean that we are better than the rest of the nation? It doesn't matter what's happend in the past, clearly the players from Regina and Saskatoon that were on that team are some of the top calibre players in the country at this point in time if they are good enough to win nationals.

SASK. PLAYERS ARE WEAK. If you think you are good, make it pro then talk. Can't be all that good if none of you idiots got picked to play in the big leagues. WHAT A JOKE!!! Anon: 19:47 you are a douche bag and you have no clue.

If Soccer here is so bad, you must live a pretty pathetic life to spend all of your time coming on here to have conversations with people about soccer.

Norway was a joke of a team when they won the wcp cup in 2007. It will never ever happen again. Dufus Husdal still celebrates.
