2021 Surf Cup

WillJohn

SILVER ELITE
My picks:

Best of the Best: Surf over Blues / interesting they got 2 teams from the same club in Georgia / teams from all over
Black: going to say Solar just based on name
White: Ole over Liverpool

Some good teams in all divisions and should be some great games.

absolute crime that solar isnt in the top bracket. i bet that gets changed. they won premier supercopa over the texans, who was a finalist in last years surf cup. Ole has an argument for top group too. My bets Pleasenton gets swapped with Solar, setting up a Blues/Solar game which will be must watch

I believe that Solar is the #1 ranked team in the USA based on youth soccer rankings. Winners of Super Copa. They have to be in the best of the best bracket. I’m sure this gets changed. Depending on where they get placed I’m predicting a Blues vs Solar Finals. Surf and Slammers Pa are also a possibility for the finals. Semis. I would expect, Solar, Surf, Blues and Slammers PA in the semis.

Looking into it further, Solar should definitely be in the top group. They could be the favorite. If not Pleasanton, then the Mustangs should be dropped to Black. They were 0-3 in Manchester and didn't score a goal (albeit against top competition Surf/Eagles/Albion). Also Ole should at least be in the Black group if not in the top group.
 
Solar moved up to the top group which is understandable. But they dropped the Eagles down to the Black which doesn't make sense.
Most likely due to their poor showing at Man City. Albion is not part of the best of the best anymore either also recall Albion beat Eagles at Man City. Now you can claim they won state cup but the reality is Surf probably does not consider this past state cup as relevant since most teams were not present.

Good point but that brings up an issue as Danville was in the same group as Eagles and Albion in Man City and lost to both and they are in the Best of the Best while Albion and Eagles are in Black. I'm sure they will be more changes so just fun to speculate.

I suspect it‘s just harder to make the top bracket as a socal team. But something is wrong when norcal has four teams and socal only has three. (Rage, but no Eagles????)

I know we’re better than you guys on a karmic and spiritual level. But there is no way we have more top soccer teams than you do.

Don’t trust YSR without looking at level of play- especially for out of area clubs. YSR rewards blowouts. If a team plays weak opponents, their YSR ranking goes up.

Strong teams in weak regions often end up with unreasonably high YSR rankings until they start playing up.

If anything, there should be more California teams in the best of the best, and some of the out of state teams need to be kicked down to a lower bracket. The way they’re lined up now, it’s kind of silly to see Ole, Eagles and Albion not be in the best of the best considering the level of opponents they’re playing against regularly.
