Andy and Christopher had their Italian cherries popped this year after playing in Papozze, and although they finished away from the top two places, people tend to level up after attending such tournaments.

I think Andy will be the decisive factor in this world cup. Last year he went to the competition more like a tourist and less like a player (not that there's anything wrong with that!). Apart from Dagh and Gianluca who are not attending, he is the only one with proven capability to disqualify Gianni. Their matchups (apart from the ones in Copenhagen) are almost always close. I am going to predict that he will succeed, and then open up the way for Fabio's first title. So for the top four, I am guessing:

1. Fabio F
2. Andy G
3. Gianni T
4. Christopher D

For the rest of the quarter finalists, Thor had some amazing results in his first competition, clean victories against the likes of Ektoras, Mario, Sandro, Oliver and Steve. I am thinking that Oliver will fight hard to enter the semis for the first time, but chances are still against him. John was quite difficult to beat last year, even after such a long absence, so I have no reason to believe he will be any less strong in Dublin. Alessandro is better than Sandro these days.

5. Thor S
6. Oliver St
7. John H
8. Alessandro V

For the Silver Cup, I don't see Rodolfo in the list yet! So I'm gonna go with Klaus.

17. Klaus

Finally, I think Dino is still the favorite for the Shirt of Shame. :) He will most likely lose to one of the newbies, I'm gonna say Joseph.

Alkis makes sense!
I believe too that Thor will make a great world cup.
On the other side, seen how much time Oliver spends with ladies (at least from his facebook profile!) I think Oliver will not make for the top 8 this year.
this makes room for Sandro, that instead he is practicing hard (guess he is the sparring partner) and Alessandro too.
The other one who, I believe, will make a great world cup is John. he won with Gianluca in a knock out double header. very few players can boast a such heroic feat. He gives troubles to most of the players he faces. He could even get the big screen this year. Anyway I think that much depends on how brave will be the John's saturday night.
About me, we will see. Of course I'd like to rise the Holy Shield for the fifth time, but I wouldn't die if we would have a fresh new champion this year. My mother says:"make room to your friends, don't be a selfish person! And she isn't wrong! But first to be a friend, I'm a warrior. And there is just a thing that a warriors do.

Top three players:

1. Gianni
2. Andy
3. Fabio

Not many surprises there, but i think theese players stand out of the crowd. And as Alkis said, Andy has the skills to beat Gianni, but it will be hard. Also i agree that Thor will do well this year. He is a a true talent.

For the silver cup i dont know. So many names i dont know the skill level of.

And im sorry Dino, but the SOS is yours to win.

1. Andy
2. Gianni
3. Fabio

I think Andy can do it and it would be an awesome final.
Jon, Oliver, Christopher and the Torchio/Verani club as runner up's in no particular order. Steve c could be among them as well.

Dino will go for his second SOS, and i'm going for the silver cup, preferably against Klaus.

Particularely I'm curious about the players i don't know, especially about Thor!

Bring it on.

I would be very happy with this result. Another quarter final appearance after 3 years would be great.

If Dirk has the balls to play he would be my number one! But alas without him you are my number 1.

I think you and Andy are equal however you are German and therefore more efficient so I have to rank you higher than him!
