Re: EURO DANMARK 2014 Qualification

Poland would've made much more sense considering the proximity and the possibility for Polish fans to travel to Denmark. I guess Germany not being ...

Re: EURO DANMARK 2014 Qualification

Just finished watching Iceland - Romania. The Romanians were impressive in the first half, but they lost all ground in the second. This was the last game in Olafur Stefansson's career. He scored 8 goals and gave 9 assists. If he can still play like this, I want to see him in Denmark in January. Unfo...

Re: EURO DANMARK 2014 Qualification

Well then, Germany is disqualified. It's really odd to see the cradle of handball not qualifying for the European Championship itself. The Germans really are nowhere near the level they were at before 2008, and I wonder if we can blame that on the Bundesliga being full of foreigners.

Re: EURO DANMARK 2014 Qualification

A draw with Austria is enough for Russia. Or if Slovenia cant defeat Belarus then Russia will qualify even with a small loss. I'm going to expand on this. Belarus will qualify as the best 3rd place team if they lose to Slovenia, unless Russia and Austria draw, which would mean Austria will qualify ...

Re: Highest scoring matches in men's handball

In Russia, there were a lot of crazy matches between 2010 and 2012, when the rule of ending attack in 35 seconds was in force. Top of them are: I don't understand this. Isn't it mandatory to follow the rules of handball set by the IHF or the EHF? Can national federations just change rules like that...

I read about this, but why do you call Borko Ristovski an idiot? It was coach Obrvan who banned Borko from the national team. Im guessing because Borko (together with Mojsovski and Lazarov) likes to think that he owns the NT and that he in fact (together with the other two mentioned) is the one who...

Re: Hungary-Croatia / EC 2014

You're in luck. EHF is streaming all the qualification matches for free, with no ads and no geoblocking (as far as I know.) I watched the Iceland - Slovenia match yesterday and the quality was decent.

As for Nikolaj, it is a very weird decision. Wilbek was supportive of him and said there was no other choice and it will give Nikolaj an opportunity to build some much needed muscle, which he hasn't been able to with the busy schedule in Atletico. This isn't the only thing the Qataris have been doi...

Re: WHC Spain 1/8 finals

The Icelandic team spent this entire day just getting to Barcelona because of a storm or something, while France just had to drive 70 km from Granollers. The game will not be delayed and now France has an unfair advantage. Great.

Re: WCH Spain-GROUP B (Sevilla)- MKD,CHI,ISL,RUS,DEN,QAT

Christ, what an intense game. Iceland managed a 23-19 win, but only five players scored goals, which is not going to be enough to beat a team like Denmark.

Our goalkeeper had a 49% save rate, though. So there's something positive here.

Russia really seem to have pulled their s**t together.

And there is apparently doubt over whether R...

Re: WCH Spain-GROUP B (Sevilla)- MKD,CHI,ISL,RUS,DEN,QAT

Macedonia 30 - 28 Chile

Did I miss something or is Chile suddenly a world power? They played really, really well. The Macedonians looked almost asleep at times when they were defending.

Is there a Macedonian here that can explain this to me? Or a Chilean? What happened?

I'm not expecting Iceland to go anywhere further than the quarter finals, and even that would be a job well done. All of these injuries have kick-started a generational change in the team, which is sorely needed, in my opinion. I'm most excited about the new goalkeeper. Despite that, I still expect ...

Re: World Handball Championship 2013 Fantasy Game

There are some pretty stupid restrictions on the player chooser. For example, Aron Palmarsson is listed as a playmaker (he plays mostly as a left back in the national team) and you can't put players in a position they're not listed under. This is a major flaw.
