"IT’S NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE"

An interesting view of Peter Bruun about the handball in these days.
""I’m worried about the fact that, except for Cristina Neagu – by far the best player in the world right now – there’s hardly any other player who’s able to dominate a game.
I wish every team would have a player like her, a true “difference-maker”, a scorer, a play-maker, a leader, all in one. I remember the days most teams had players like her, but now it’s not what it used to be."

"Yes, I know about Nora Mork, but she’s more of a streak shooter. She can decide a match, but not in a way Neagu can. Or as Anita Gorbicz did.
True greatness, like the one of Neagu, will always rise above the rest. If a player is just levels above all the others, like the names I mentioned before, it doesn’t matter how good the rest of the team, actually is.
And while most Danish people will disagree with me, I would have loved to see Romania and Cristina Neagu in the semi-finals."

It's nice that people see the difference :)

Interview with Niombla before Golden League. She said she refused Rostov to prolong with Bucharest. And that CSM will have a super-project for the next season. She also complained about the "enormous" schedule, but she says she feels very good in Bucharest which is a very beautiful city, and is only 3 hours away from Metz and her family. Sportively, it was her best choice.

I just hope Gnonsiane is not fatigued.

Video-interview with Stine Oftedal before Golden League! (in french)

Cette fille est simplement magnifique! Simple, respectful and wanting to give 100% every match. So lucky to have her in Győr from next season!
After the match against Russia in Golden League when she had a little injury on the thigh she said "It's ok. Just a scratch. Of course I will play against France and Denmark. I am the captain of Norway" =D>

Interview with Carmen Martin for the Spanish press

Postby vlad_impaler » Tue Mar 28, 2017 6:51 pm

Image

Question. What was your first impression of the team?

It was positive. 9 of the 18 team players were foreigners and I already knew several of them from before.

Q. How was your adaptation with team?

A. The adaptation with team was great, but with the coach it cost me some time. 2014 was not really my year. I only played around 20 minutes per game in the first part of the season, I did not fit into the coach's plan (Mette Klit). I had difficult times when I lost my motivation but I decided not to give up and to work a lot every day. I was happy that the second part of the 2014-15 season was diffferent.

Q. And what about the language?

A. The fact of having played in teams with all the other foreign teammates has helped me a lot during my day-to-day life to speak English. During my years abroad I would have loved to have Spanish teammates, but I have to recognise that the fact of not speaking Castilian daily has caused to speak naturally another language.

Q. What is life like there?

A. Life in Bucharest depends on your economic level, if you have money you can access all kinds of life, from going to the theatre, opera, cinema to eating a seafood platter in front of the lake or going to the mountains of Brașov to ski. Bucharest is a very big city and full of life, where you can also find many people with a high economic level.

P. Differences with handball in Spain.

A. Handball in Romania is more physical, it is very rare to find open defences or spend 10 minutes of play with double pivot in attack. The structures of the teams are basic and they rarely dare to organise a game more modern and faster. It still exists the old school (keep training and training because you are going to be better, rather than improving procedures that may be more appropriate for your players).

Q. What does Carmen Martin do in her spare time?

A. When it's bad weather in Romania I like to stay at home, to invite friends and cook for them, trying to innovate my recipes by not eating the same every time. If the time goes by I usually go for a walk or visit different cafes, since I love cafes. Every free weekend is my perfect excuse to travel, Bucharest airport is very well connected with different European cities and low cost airlines, hehe. I can't deny I love shopping, but I can't deny that when it is time to study for exams I become a very boring person, hehe.

Q. What would you recommend visiting a person traveling to Bucharest for the first time?

A. I recommend visiting the Palace of the Parliament, it is the second largest building in the world after The Pentagon. It is a place for tourists who are interested in history and Nicolae Ceaușescu.

Q. After so much time there, could you tell us something positive and something negative about Romania?

R. I love how people are passionate about our sport because in Bucharest, being a city of over 2 million inhabitants where all kinds of sports exist, people feel a special passion for handball . As a negative point I have to emphasize that the infrastructure of the city and the country is not complete, a trip that in Spain would last 3 hours in Romania takes more, since not all the motorways are ready yet.

Q. And finally, what do you miss about Spain?

A. There are many things, family, friends, the comfort of getting up in the morning and saying good morning, Spanish shops, the sea...

Carmen Martín: "In Romania they treat us like footballers"

Image

You have been playing at CSM Bucharest since 2014, ​how well do you speak Romanian?
We always speak English, we are an international team. Although I know some words, but I understand more than I speak.

Do you also understand English on the street?
[Laughs] I understand if I speak Spanish. In the end, with telenovelas and all of that... In Romania almost everyone speaks two or three foreign languages.

You are already champion of Europe with your club, can Spain aspire to the same level?
Well, I consider that we are entering a new cycle, we are doing many incorporations and talking about medals is very far.

Speaking of handball in general, you started when handball was at the highest level in Spain and you have seen how it fell at the club level. How do you see the future of the Spanish league?
I don't see a future very much in our favour. I would love to return to Spain, to be in our country and play in our league, but it is true that right now the international level is higher. Personally, if I want to continue improving in terms of teams, aspirations, professionalism, payment issues, budgets ... I have to go abroad.

What is different in Romania?
The budget, the organisation of the club, the ideology regarding how to treat the players, the television, the fans, the people that are around us... Also the marketing and communication of the club, the publicity... All that in the end makes the people to get hooked.

And I imagine they find more coverage in the media.
In Romania we are treated like the footballers in Spain. What is here dedicated to football there is done with all the sports. Handball is included daily on TV. Journalists attend training, they record and report.

How Spain is seen from Romania?
With regret. There are many players who had the desire to play in Spain. They would love to know our culture, to live, to learn... They envy us because of our climate and quiet life.

And how do you see it?
Great [Laughs]. I would love to go back. But of course, if we want to survive from this and be at the highest level, we have to be in Eastern countries.

To end. Do you dare ask the Government anything?
I don't know what to say. Actually, let it be known that there is a female league, where we play... Wow, fundamental things.

A book? I have finished reading Inferno.

What music do you enjoy? I like the eighties.

What is the last TV series you have seen? Narcos.

A book? I have finished reading Inferno.

What kind of Coca-Cola do you ask for? I am more of sparkling water, but if I have to choose a Coke, make it Zero.

What type of coffee do you drink? Express.

What kind of Romanian food do you recommend? Stuffed peppers is spectacular.

A word in Romanian? Vine (means "viene").

Have you visited the Dracula's Castle? Yes, it is a bit far from Bucharest, like about six hours, and is a bit dilapidated.

What do you miss about Spain? Family and friends.

A dream? A medal in the Olympic Games. I got injured in London 2012 and I was replaced.

And a wish? To return to Spain.

Interview with Zita Szucsánszki and Anikó Kovacsics:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBIa-ZC ... ture=share

Excerpt from the conversation:
Szucsánszki: "During the whole season we were preparing for this, so now we are trying to reach the Final Four which will take place a few streets away. In order to get there this is the last step. We will put all our energy into this match. We have injured players, but everybody will be ready for this clash."
