Re: Danish League 20/21

A year and a half ago Clara Skøtt was on her way to her first youth championship with the Danish u17 national team when she tore her ACL just days before. Now she has just turned 18, been rehabing for 1 and a half year and is already contributing to København Håndbold's league team. They really got ...

Re: Danish League 20/21

Wierzba and Mie Guldager are for sure the next two breakout candidates in Aarhus United. Wierzba has already proven that she can beat senior defenders with her pace and Guldager is already stronger than most senior pivots, so much is expected from those two in the coming years. So those two are pret...

Re: Danish League 20/21

I didn't watch NFH-Esbjerg, so I would be interested in hearing @Anol or someone else who saw it give their opinion as to what went wrong for Esbjerg and what went right for NFH. Aarhus allowed Silkeborg to play their game in the second half and they control from that point on. It was too easy for t...

Re: Danish League 20/21

Thörn is understandibly moving on to Odense. She's getting a big pay rise, so would be foolish for her to turn it down but she has been a great player in Aarhus. Testament to what can be done. She wanted to increase her level of play and did just that in Aarhus. It's a great story. Now there is stil...

Re: Danish League 19/20

I just want to highlight some of the lesser known talents, we have in Denmark right now, who are dominating in the youth. Ellebæk is the most shining example of a player who crushed it in the youth leagues but never got the national attention and didn't get selected for the youth teams most of the t...

Re: Danish League 19/20

If things shake up in a way we don't want it to and Elver doesn't extend her contract in Aarhus, then I think there is a almost perfect replacement in Camilla Pytlick. She has the same knack for playing the assist, putting pressure on the defense and making the right pass. She does tend to play with...

Re: Danish League 19/20

She is almost certainly the player in the Danish League that has the most 2 minute suspensions committed on her. Opposing players hate playing against her because her center of gravity is so low that if you initiate contact with her, you are probably hitting her head. https://images.jfmedier.dk/imag...

Unfortunately she is not at the level of playing for the NT. She is not good enough for that at this point.

Re: Danish League 19/20

Saw people around the internet do handball teams of the decade with international player. I don't know many international players, certainly not enough to give an educated guess on it, so I decided I could do a quick one on a team I know for the last decade. SK Aarhus/Aarhus United. So this is my te...

Re: Danish League 19/20

It went under the radar but Aarhus has been able to secure a two-year extension with Nora Persson and I believe she might be the most exciting player in the league that no one knows. Her overall % is not that great but she is young and new in the league, so that was expected. In flashes she has show...

Re: Danish League 19/20

What a nailbiter in Aarhus today and I thought Viborg were going to drive home with the two points when they went up with 2 with 10 minutes left. All the momentum was with Viborg when Aamand and Pontoppidan both got 2min suspensions that they didn't really deserve but when all hope seemed lost - Pon...

Re: Danish League 19/20

It will be interesting to watch Esbjerg vs København in two weeks time. København has maximum points but I still do not really know how good they are. This will be their first true test. They have shown they are good and better than the middle of the pack but are they as good as Esbjerg and Odense w...

I think that one day suspension would have been ok too. But him admitting it or not is irrelevant. That is where bonus pater familias comes in to play.

The Hungary u17-NT And what about the preparation games this weekend ;-) They seemed to have a drive and a goal to run over another team, and unfortunately Denmark was in the way - twice. They are simply a level above Denmark. That #18 Koronczai was impossible for the Danish defense to control and ...

I'm just very, very excited about the prospect of Line Ellertsen in Aarhus. When Lundbye needs a rest, and we line up with Pontoppidan, Elver, Ellertsen. That will be, for me, the most exciting backcourt we have had in years - maybe ever. They can all look defenders look stupid 1v1, and then we of c...

Re: 2019 Women's Youth U17 EURO [Top Division] (Slovenia)

The u19s are basically over, so we can start looking ahead for the u17s in two weeks time. I don't really have a good grasp on the pecking order at this moment in the generation. U17s are often a crapshoot. The Danish team has 3 wins in the last 7 matches and getting hammered against Romania - altho...

Re: 2019 Women's U19 ECh (Hungary)

Tough opening for Denmark and it certainly made me question Tuborg's selection a bit more. Having only Clara Thomsen on the right back as a natural choice is just not enough. I like when Elsberg plays there but then they just have to rotate a lot more than they do because she is not much of a threat...
