MNE, DEN, RUS, FRA

Russia is going to the final for sure now. Hungary I will never understand.

Denmark is going to win because they are at home and have some momentum now.

Rooting for the Netherlands but I think France will snatch it in the end.

MNE is going to win because they are going to "kill" Løke and get away with it. They obviously also have many very good players, it's a shame with all the other stuff. I find them very unlikeable.

1) Norway vs Montenegro - It's wide open, just hoping :)
When we finally found a general in our defense, Molid had to get injured ofc. Good news is that Ida Alstad is back, but we don't know yet if Molid will play or not.

We have missed you badly, Alstad :)
Image

Too bad we can't have both on court at the same time, instead we have a third pivot nobody knows the name of, since she hardly get to play at all...not even in møbelringen cup did she get one single second. That is absolutely totally understandable, Hergeirsson, please do not try to explain it, as it will only make me puke...
However, I think Montenegro might struggle with the strict refereeing we see here in Denmark, so that might tip the balance, but it may also go the other way around as it did in the match against Russia. Still, I think we will hear at least something about bad refs after this match from Montenegrin fans :)

2) Denmark vs Romania -Romania depends too much on Neagu, and if she have a bad day, they will lose. Danes on fire now, and with 12.000 supporters, Romania will feel they are a long way from home...

3) Russia vs Poland -Russia big favourite, and will win for sure. Poland high flying, and their GK must perform over the top again if this shall go their way. Not very likely, but stranger things have happened :)


4) France vs Netherlands -Spain deserved to be here, and I'm all in for the underdog Netherland. The Dutch have such an attractive team, it's a pure joy to watch them. Malestein, Poleman, Allingh, Groot, Vester in goal...tall, fast and strong players that may take Netherlands all the way for the first time in history. Hope so too :)

Hopefully the Netherlands can progress to the next round. We have been playing very well in this championship so far and also against Sweden we should have won. The defense is looking great so far and also the goalkeeper Wester has been excellent. France will definitely be a though opponent, but I think we have a good chance of beating them. This team now consists of player who have Champions League-experience as well, so hopefully they will be ready for this game because it actually is the first big test. The game against Serbia definitely showed the potential of this team. We play very fast counter attacks and also have good backcourt shooters like Abbingh, Polman and Groot. Also it would be great for Dutch handball if they could fight for a medal. The games are finally being televised and this media attention should make this sport more attractive for the broader public.

I think Holland is mature enough to beat France now. Finally as you say they have a decent goalie. I thought France was better but they have not impressed so much in this tournament. I really hope Holland will take a medal. Russia - Holland in a semifinal would be very interesting. Everyone of the 8 remaining teams can win except Poland and Romania.

That won't be a problem since Adzic has an answer for everything. :D
As someone mentioned on the chat he has the "Bonaventura tactics" on trainings where MNE plays the defense and attack with one or two players down. ;)

Mr. 007 wrote:I think we will hear at least something about bad refs after this match from Montenegrin fans


Naaaah, not bad refs, but Bonaventuras. That is a different thing. MNE can play with man down but it very hard to defend and to score when Norway has 8 players in the field :D

But hey, i have to be honest, i really, really, really like the duels against Norway. It's exciting.

With Brazil Neagu did a lot of mistakes.

Someone dindn't see Romania - Brazil, and is not me :p
Bradeanu, Buceschi, Geiger just proved (against Brazil) Neagu doesn't mean everything for this team.
If these players will play at least as they played Sunday, there is a huge chance.

So the safest prediction is Bonaventuras on Norway - Montenegro. :)

- Holland : I think France will never be the same without O.K. Moreover, they don't know how to cope with young emerging teams. Kom op Oranje!
- Russia: will upset the Poles with better fitness, precise shooting and goalkeeping.

If I continued on this safe path, I would have to say:
- Norway: they have grown throughout the championship, especially in defense, and with the refereeing that suits their style, everything will come into place and order will be restored, as Norwegians like to say
- Denmark: home team goes to the semis, just as in 2010, they have played a good eight final, younger, faster, et cetera, et cetera

But, what would a WC be without surprises? A complete bore :D So, I bluntly go for:
- Montenegro: yes, they will get punished, but Loke will too; yes, they will face good keepers, but Katarina and Jaukovic are at the top of their shooting; yes, the norwegian wingers will be lethal, but not as lethal as Majda and Joka.
- Romania : the Danes miss a playmaker, their defense is raw to say the least, Ryde knows a lot about Danish handball and most and foremost, our girls will not let go.

Hopes for Romania, Norway, Russia & The Netherlands :D

Consider that The Netherlands have left home one of their best backplayers (Maura Visser) and they are still looking very good, and as some mentioned they have far more experience on international level than ever. Broch, Groot in Gyor, Abbingh in Baia Mare, Polman & Van Der Hejden in Esbjerg. Go Netherlands =D>

Denmark is indeed strange, and won that game against Sweden even with that poor defence and being beaten by some Swedish fastbreaks. or maybe the montage was made that way? I just hope we will fight, not to lose miserably.

We will see, this is actually the first competition where MNE players are not even in top 20 when it comes to suspensions. And i really don't mind them.
If MNE stops the only lethal weapon of Norway like Buducnost did in the final against Larvik, Norway will have big problems.

I agree, completely. Neagu made a very clever game, shooting only clear chances and making the ball move otherwise. She even assisted Nechita twice or three times, after threatening to breakthrough between defenders 1 and 2 on the right side of attacking court. Buceschi also played very cleverly, as usual, receiving a lot of 7m penalties. But I may add it was Bradeanu who really killed every chance of a BRA's come back, scoring whenever it appeared impossible to overcome BRA's defence colectivelly.
Neagu did an interview for brazilian TV after the match, and said the players gathered together the day before the game and concluded Romania always has been a good NT, but something was missing for them, and in the game against Brazil they found that something, which was team playing and team spirit. If the players could retain the team playing and spirit Neagu was talking about, I think they have a huge chance against Denmark.

I badly want the quarterfinal day to turn into the day of biggest Dutch achievement in history of their women's handball (so far it's the 5th place at 2005 WCh). They deserve it like nobody else.

Poland with some additional motivation, you know...history (WW II, Katyn, Kaczynskis TU-154, etc.) surely brings some special strenght for them. They will fight harder than ever, absolutely nothing is clear for Russia here.

Trefilov is not András Németh.
They will neutalize Kudlacz and Byzdra, and game over for Poland.

Thomas Ryde:"Danish players were not thinking to disappoint many fans, but on the other hand this could be an additional pressure.Cristina Neagu knows more about handball than almost all coaches . In the field, she leads both her team and their opponents. It's very concentrated. She is the best handball player in the world. "Cristina Neagu:"I have problems with ankles, knees and shoulders and I have not trained as much as I would have liked. I have many physical problems and I was not 100% here in Denmark. But I am confident for tomorrow's match. I like that there will be 12,000 spectators."

Neagu is certainly pure class, and Adzic even polished her defensive skills.

The Dutch are one of the fairest teams in the game. They grew up constantly, without forcing their way as hosts or booming economic power and other such stuff.
It's a team that's literally started from 0. They showed their strength in junior and youth competitions for years now. The moment they'll be ready to deliver on senior stage, they will. It's not a matter of IF, it's a matter of WHEN.

However, like a few already pointed, France is their biggest test thus far (somehow Sweden wasn't the most convincing this time), so we'll see how good they are. I think they'll not be 8th anyway, so they'll stand a damn good chance of being in the OG as well.

Hopefully this will change the way handball is seen over there.
