Re: world university championship (students competition) 2018 CROATIA

These are fake student competitions. Most of the players from all teams are in fact pro players who are rather part time students than anything. These days, there's the European Student University Games in Coimbra, Portugal (https://www.eug2018.com). From Romania, there were the Uni of Pitesti (2nd ...

Re: 2018 Women's Junior U20 WCh (Hungary)

Well they did it. 26-22 in a do-or-die match after the debacle yesterday. Credit to them. There still is something in this team. And now, Croatia, who they easily beat only 4 months ago in the qualification group. But both teams seem in a opposite state of mind compared to then.

Re: 2018 Women's Junior U20 WCh (Hungary)

I didn't see the match and frankly I don't think I'll waste my time doing it. From what you say we're talking again about basic things that are lacking. Which really surprises me since Tadici has this aura of defense/discipline expert. It's not the loss itself that worries me, but the magnitude. We ...

Re: 2018 Women's Junior U20 WCh (Hungary)

Well, if they don't win vs. Angola, they'll be out anyway and play the President cup. Wasn't Tadici supposed to be a defense specialist? How do you concede 42 in a WCh game?

And turns out Japan's not such a walk in the park after all. They almost got the win vs. NED too.

Re: WCh 2019 - Germany & Denmark

Indeed, and with the reduction of spots for the next round, the fight for the 3rd spot should be fierce in each group! Group A is very very balanced (excepting France, but you never know) and can be even more if we see a good Korean team. We should also have a benchmark on the Macedonia vs. Iceland ...

Re: 2018 Women's Junior U20 WCh (Hungary)

I wonder what does "visa trouble" mean. Is the team simply delayed or they will not travel at all? IHF needs to do something about this, like instituting a deadline for teams to show that all travel documents are in place say... 2 months in advance. If this is not the case then they should...

And what a mess this PanAm turns out to be. Cuba didn't show up and nobody bother to tell anyone why. Seems it's a visa related problem. All their matches have been cancelled. What's worse is that Cuba was one of the contenders for the semis and for those 3 WCh spots. Seems PATHF has been suspended ...

@aletem Sure, for the simple reason we simply don't fare well vs. Scandianvian teams. Their style is simply something we cannot handle right now. So it's not about absolute value, but also about how some teams match other teams. And our only qualifications in the past 8 years have come at the hands ...

Well, we sucked today and played like it didn't matter. I am actually disappointed, because it should have been a victory with at least +5. And no, the difference between the teams is on the same level as the difference between our female teams. Then again, a result stands. Romania even lead by +4 ...

The Lithuanians didn't help us at all. The moment Manaskov stole that ball and was whistled as foul and then when he got a suspension for nothing, made me laugh. :lol: And that wasn't all. These were the same refs that helped Barca against Vardar 2 years ago. So... with bad refs you win +8, but wit...

Iceland won a very dramatic and hard-fought second leg against Lithuania to qualify. As expected, LTU are good. I didn't think they are that good. Malasinskas had a great match, same for the LP and the GK. Beratonis was also good. I didn't see Truchanovicius play in the final 15 mins. Xavi Pasqual r...

Some close encounters in the third 3 matches. A bit expected I would say, but the returns should be straight affairs.
I am surprised by Hungary's consistent win in Slovenia. How was that match? I suppose there were a lot of nerves.

Re: 2018 European Championship - France

Big chance missed by Switzerland yesterday. The heavy score line also puts Switzerland out even of a 3rd place contention (if Ukraine wins in the last round, SUI falls 4th, otherwise they will stay 3rd, but with 0p, losing those against UKR). Ukraine has to win to finish in a 3-way ranking with SUI ...

Re: Liga Națională (Romanian League) 2018/2019

Worth noting that these were virtually the promotion matches. So... Pretty much a worthless tournament just to confirm that Slatina and Galati keep their places.
I believe a restructuring of our second league and even a creation of a third one could do some good.
