Potential fight for the title & top teams of season 2019/2020

Good morning. I hope to create an interesting topic. :D

Considering the transfers of the teams of each championship (or the most important championships according to the ranking), in your opinion, what can be confirmed or changes in the leadership of each of them? will the winning teams of the past season be successful and/or which other teams have made an important purchase campaign to fight for the top positions? :idea:

Come on, let's analyze each league, the possible first places, which teams compete for the title and the main competitions (National Super Cup or National Cup, for example). ;)

BVB Dortmund started an interesting project with quite some talented and more experienced players. I dont think that they have a chance to win the german League this year, but maybe next season.

For Handball Bundesliga the two best teams of the past season were Bietigheim (the winner) and Thuringer.
Now, considering the transfers, Bietigheim has made few changes, with two young entries and a line player from Byasen (Maren Nyland Aardahl).
The Thuringer, on the other hand, has changed a lot, losing important players like Krause and Wohlbold for the end of their career. and other players like Muller, Lang, Hubinger ... so it will be interesting to see the new balances with the new entries.
The BVB has undoubtedly made good transfers, but for now I think it is still a step back from these two formations.

Quite vague topic, but let’s see Hungary.

I think it will be the season, when Siófok will break out. It does not mean that they will be better than FTC but they will be at similar level and there will be 3 very good teams in Hungary, being far better than the others.

The gap will be wider among them and their followers, including Érd, and then the massive mid-class

I can't see how that fits in the transfer topic in any way. It rather looks like hb89 wants to gauge the potential fight for the championship in every league. Probably also wants some tips for some good bets? ;)

I'd be suprised if THC don't take the title. BBM didn't really make a step ahead compared to last season, while THC clearly a improved squad compared to previous season(s). Probably planned for some more success in the CL than in the previous years. But that's all for nothing now.

Prediction: With such a line-up, they have to win the German championship. Anything else would be total and utter humiliation of the highest degree.

No other team challenge these two. Metzingen took a step back, BVB Dortmund took one step ahead - but that's still not enough for anything more than third.

Super Cup: It's merely a practice game with a few more spectators. No one really cares. Sorry, I don't want to take away the anticipation from the many Super Cup fans out there - all 3 of them. :p

In the Romanian League it'll most likely be about the CSM vs. Vâlcea fight for the big trophies. However, there are a few teams that made some good transfers during the summer break and they are expected to put a good fight against the big two. Gloria Bistrița, Măgura Cisnădie, Gloria Buzău and even Dunărea Brăila could produce "surprises". Other teams such as Corona Brașov and Craiova might seem a bit weakened at the moment, but they'll always display strong handball on home court. On paper CSM and SCM are in a league of their own and then comes this cluster of 4-5 teams that could shock them if they are not taken seriously.

exactly. transfers are transfers, here we talk about analyzing the different leagues and seeing what are the balances compared to the past season, based also on the transfers and the projects of the teams.

I agree. I think that, different from the other seasons, the gap between the first teams has shortened. Sure Gyor will have something more, and even the buying campaign has been more remarkable than FTC, which risks the second place given the Siofok that revolutionized the team in the summer but remains potentially a star of the season and that will give problems both to Gyor to the FTC, in my opinion.

The transfers of Romanian league were really many. I agree with the analysis, it will be interesting to see what will happen between Valcea and CSM, also because, above all CSM, it has literally upset its own team. Valcea has also made many changes, so we'll see. The other teams really interesting and with projects aimed at the future well described and developed

Norwegian league is without Larvik this season.

Vipers is huge favorites

But this season can be breakthrough for Molde
Helle Thomsens club. I think they can take medals and next year European Cup.

Storhamar, Tertnes, Byasen and Fredrikstad looks weaker

It's a little too early to say something in professional sense....for instance CSM depends by the recovered usual form of Neagu and Nora Mork after surgeries and the present form of Carmen Martin and Torstenson who knows really ? (...though I do not imagine Torstenson under Jacobsen 's levell). And if happens again new injuries on key players there are no others to act close to their level.

Surely Vipers will be the favorite, it will be interesting to see what happens from the second place down. Molde made four / five transfers, mostly from Larvik, Storhamar changed little.

No doubt Vipers will be the favourite for the title, surely they must solve the problem of the goalkeeper waiting for Lunde's recovery. It will be interesting to see what happens in the standings after them, Stohramar changed little and lost a player of the caliber of Loke, Molde made 4/5 transfers, most of them from Larvik.

I believe that in these seasons at Nice especially Carmen Marti has proven to stay on good levels. Surely every team has to deal with injuries but I believe that this year there will be the redemption of the Bucuresti which, at least on paper, I believe has a staff superior to the adversaries and to the same Valcea.

Storhamar lost Løke, Riegelhuth, Masson, Ambakk and Juahz. Only have 9 players og something like that

Unfortunately from this photo are missing some important players as Helena Rysankova (Baia Mare's golden left hand thrower),Larisa Tamas,AC Popa,Eva Kerekes and probably new sensation RW Oana Bors (very young). With this team I think Baia Mare can reach third place , a place atack also by teams like Bistrita,Cisnadie,Craiova,Brasov,Braila,Buzau . Each of this team can cause unexpected "damages" on two first teams CSM and Valcea .I think CSM has first option but will be a bloody fight, not only against Valcea. (this prognosis depends of real recover and form of Nora and Cris, the true gunners).
So, 7 teams fight for 3rd place and each has own arguments : all of them except may be Craiova made agressive transfers from 5-10 or even more...This teams don't hesitate to bring foreign players, almost all of them experienced players of NT and to use the most promissing young ro players (18-21) as the rule call.
My wish is that Baia Mare (or Brasov) to conquer 3rd place.

In Russian superleague Rostov is a favorite, but Russian federation head supports CSKA, and also they changed scheme of championship, so it might be close. Lada and Kuban are weaker than in previous season, Astrachanochka and Zvezda can play for medals.
