Germany - Questions & Answers

Name:  Kirk Evans                  
 


Team:  Germany

How would you rate last years performance?
Definitely under achieved last year. Were once again in the group of death and it didn’t turn out well for us. Also had a few injuries that didn’t help us. 
 


Are there any new signings or departures? 
A few signings and a few departures. Picked up Stefan Husdal and Reis Cooper from Norway, Garrett Meier from Ireland and Mitch Cantin from  El Salvador
We lost Josh Forsberg to France and Duncan Mcdougall to Ireland
 


Who is your most important player? Why?
I wouldn’t say we have one player that is the most important. We have alot of guys that are key contributors to our team. If I had to pick one it would be Andrew Zerr, scores goals like crazy. 
 


Where do you think you will finish this year?
The plan right now is to just make it out of our group, but that’s not going to be an easy task having to play against Laos and Poland who are both favourites to win the title. 
 


If you could sign any player in the tournament who would it be and why?
Obviously I would sign Kevin Holness. The guy is a legend, who wouldn’t want him on their team?
 


Who do you think will win this year?
Republic of Ireland, team is stacked. If they don’t win I would be surprised. 
 


If you could change one thing in the tournament what would it be?
Take one guy off the field. 8 v 8 would open up alot of space and make for higher scoring more exciting games.

No one wants higher scoring you dud. 7 v 7 would be a mess. Everything is direct. I don't want to be watching teams that will likely get blown out, get blown out even worse. It's stupid. If anything you want to tighten up the rules. Make it 8 v 8, but go back to throw-ins. People pay good money to watch Kirk, don't be an idiot.

This has nothing to do with Germany, but I'm going to say it anyways...

Weakest player on ROI and should be benched = Mike Collins.

He will no doubt find a way to ruin a very talented ROI team. Oh and Collins, try not to break the new trophy. You might want to try and stop getting drunk prior to games too. You likely won't get a dressing room the whole tournament, so don't even think about bringing a keg.

I'll bet money that Collins takes a bunch of dives and cries to the referee, because he can't get his way. It happens every year. It's truly pathetic.

Take another player off the field? Really? You mean having EVERYTHING direct and completely eliminating offsides making it a more offensive game isn't enough to make higher scoring games? Here's an idea: GET BETTER AT SHOOTING!

Typically small time thinking in Sask. Instead of actually getting better and improving the skill level, we try to change the rules to make it easier to accomplish the goal.

I think this tournament is WAY WAY WAY past having to improve the skill level of the participants. Let's be honest for a minute:
Regina failed to put in a competed Men's PSL team for how many years? So how much talent is there in Regina? How many players are past the development years in this tournament?

Maybe if you changed the rules for the U12=U14 players so they are forced to play the game skillfully then sure, but for anyone past 15…. find another avenue for development.

GoW(s): Come on Mike. Now that you allow a GoW post all the idiots who once posted anonymously are trying to mimic that idiot. Give your head a shake. Flavio's broken english comes to light in the real GoW posts!

Nathan Reis: I am not sure how I feel about you. "The Great 8"? Let's be real chap, I am not too sure there is anything great about you aside your try hard attitude. Your fundamentals are very weak and if you played on a team where you would be relied to carry the work load, you would struggle. Your 100% a complimentary player.Same goes for the Pattersons and Collins.

Kirk (The Joker): Andrew Zerr? I wouldn't rate that guy anything past being mediocre, but Team Germany is the make up of mediocrity. Wonder why Germany never performs to "expectations"? Well to be honest, it is because those expectations are bloated and there is no way a team that is led by Andrew Zerr are noteworthy!

Polish Fans: I hope to hear you complain when everyone takes your seats. I support the attitudes of many of the posters on here who are eager to take that middle seating section!

anon 13:43 we know you are still learning to read, didn't Kirk write that he would like to see it 8v8 ... then you said 7v7 would be a mess and it should be 8v8 .... so doesnt that mean you are agreeing with him?

Anonymous said...

Not that I disagree with you on the point of talent in Regina being behind, but I think the lack of a PSL team is more to do with a lack of committed players than a lack of talent.

I do agree with you on the fact that this tournament isn't about development...it never has been and never will. WCP Cup is purely entertainment only and and in no way does it do anything for development (youth or adult). What I was getting at was more developing the younger players to get these skills so there is more quality down the road or for the current adults have teams sign better quality players (whether it's from within Regina or outside of Regina) rather than changing the rules to accommodate the lack of skill.

Peter: Trust me, I did not give myself that nickname, and quite frankly, I would never call myself great!

Cheers.

Polish Fans: I can't wait until you have games. I'm going to "mitch" it up with you clowns. I can't wait until one of you fools gets upset and tries something. I'll show you my kung fu.

Kirk: You are a dud, you need to shut up. We don't need more scoring. We need less, more competitive games. Eliminate these stupid blowouts.

Nathan Reis: Try and actually win the ball this year, instead of sitting around like a lazy fatty and waiting for the ball to come to you.

Flavio Bravo: You my man are a huge dud. My grandma could make better saves than you, better yet, a lawn chair could do a better job than you.

To this Jamaica MON guy: You sir, are hilarious. Keep up the good work.

Peter how did coaching go this year? Yep, I figured out who you are.

For an oversized dud, Nathan Reis is a push over. I laughed watching him try to play as a top striker last year. For a guy that is above the 200 lbs mark, how hard is it to hold off a tiny defender?!?! WORST STRIKER amongst his peers.

I am the god of war. I love fools like Julio aka Alvaro Campos. I am the real GOW. GoW is a fake. Get real Collins, you know I'm back. This is me. Lets tango fool.

Anonymous said...

Nathan "Great 8" Reis he calls himself. Tries to downplay it to everyone he talks to. Needs to stop showboating. He's weak sauce.

Anonymous said...

I remember when this GoW dud came on this site and then talked a big game and then ran away scared when he found out the bad intentions people have for him. I remember you GoW and you better HOPE that you don't get caught red handed as this time you won't have a chance to go running scared.
You are an idiot. You are obviously calling out people no longer on this blog or in this tournament… so STFU no one cares.

Nathan Reis said...

Ha. Amazing how many of you are concerned with my physique and level of play! I'm really crushed because this tournament is my opportunity to make it to the pros. So many scouts come and watch from massive clubs.

Hey Thor.

Post your real name and I'll come meet up with you so we can have a chat "MITCH".

Ha ha Reis, you wish you could make it pro. Go back to playing your video games. It's the only thing you are good at. YOU SUCK BUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nathan Reis said...

Hahaha the irony of the post by anon. 17:09. I hate everything about video games, and you cannot possibly be dumb enough to think I was serious about making it pro.

Anonymous said...

GOW why don't you post your name on here so EVERYONE knows who you are, then I will more than gladly post my name and a picture so you know exactly who you are looking for when you need to have a "CHAT".

Although there wasn't enough broken english that post I think that anon 17:08 is a fake GoW but the same offer stands for the real GoW.

Nathan Reis said...

Ooooh sounds like a fair offer there GOW! Time to reveal yourself so that we all know who you are!

Anonymous said...

This may be the only time that I agree with the Great 8, but I would also like to know who this GoW character is. If you are such a stud and back up all you claim, why not reveal yourself bud? A bunch of other people make their identity known as they back what they say, why not do the same!

GoW is Lupastin!! No doubt about it

Peter don't be a hypocrite, post your real name. You've told us many times that your first name is Peter, but what we are looking for you flaming loser is your full real name. Don't give us all your b.s. You think you are so cool with all your wisdom etc., but really you are no better than this GOW loser. Both of you are idiots and I hope one day you get what's coming to you.

Peter you are a little baby and you have no balls to post up your real name. Lets see what this guy posts. He'll no doubt give us all some b.s.

Anonymous said...

My name is Peter. I post my first name and if you can't figure out who I am… your lose idiot. Where is your name hypocrite? Thought so.

I see how idiots treat each other once you know someone's identity. I don't want a Regina scum bag to come bother me and my family while I am at the centre.

How about this… I know who Peter is. Peter knows who I am. I will reveal a picture of Peter once GoW is reveal.

You alright with that Peter?

Mike Collins said...

Aside from the ten people on here who have ever used there actual name no one else is going to. Again, let's move on.

I just like the fact that GoW is cornered to prove who he is and he goes crawling back to his shadow like the coward he is. Time after time this guy shows how big of a coward he is. If people ever find out who this guy is, he'll never be able to live it down and he knows it. Why do you think he ran away the first time?

I wouldn't hold my breath on GoW having any validity with his comments or ever showing his true identity.

With all the loud opinions contained within the blog I expect loud booing of our atrocious mayor at the opening ceremonies. Our municipal gov't has done more damage to our game locally than anything else, by not providing adequate facilities to nurture the development of our youth players. The negativity of the comments towards players, teams and ideas within this blog is a direct reflection of our Soccer Community and until we can overcome the name calling and our own ego's the game of soccer in Saskatchewan will always be bottom tier.

I agree with XNR, except the part about our mayor holding us back. I'm not a fan of our mayor, but our problems are within. Until we can get past the petty ego's and start working together to build the game, the city will never take the soccer community seriously. Not even looking at the divide between RSA and the community associations, the clubs and people within RSA on their own can't even work together to put together a functional board or common goal among all it's members that can help the game grow.

Anonymous said...

XNR you make some really good points. The fact that people come on here and trash talk each other builds a lot of tension and problems amongst the soccer community. We need to be positive and say nice things to help people grow. I really don't get why people come on here and go on and on about really stupid topics. The negative talk is getting old. Try and say some nice things for once. Get this blog cleaned up a little.
