Danish League 2018/19

Postby maz » Sun Jul 15, 2018 9:41 am

Another year, another topic.

With the u20 championship ending I thought about breakthrough players of the upcoming season. Lundgreen would for sure have been on the list if she didn't get injured. My list looks like this right now:

Anna Kristensen, goalkeeper for Skanderborg: Probably the young player with the most hype surrounding her. As a 16 year old goalkeeper she shut down several 1st division teams. Monika Kongsgaard is their starting goalkeeper but they know and everybody knows that it’s a matter of time before Anna Kristensen is the premier keeper in Skanderborg. It will be interesting to see her develop in Skanderborg

Ida Lagerbon, playmaker for Ringkøbing: The best 1st division player last year in my opinion. Her bounce back from her ACL tear has been incredible. I think she will get a ton of responsibility in Ringkøbing and she is mature enough to thrive under the added pressure. Amazing for Ringkøbing that they got her under contract. Several teams wanted her.

Mirja Lyngsø, pivot for Aalborg: Lyngsø has tried a ton of positions but have found her place as the Aalborg-pivot and a fantastic central defender. She will not light up the scoresheet but she is one of the most reliable defenders in Denmark and Aalborg will need that in their first season.

Lea Hansen, right wing for Silkeborg: Probably my candidate for breakthrough player of the year. I talk about her a lot because she is the most dominant youth player I have watched in a long time, and I have watched a few. She will be the starting right wing for Silkeborg for most of the season. She is an incredible athlete, she just needs to add the consistency because her finishing has improved a great deal as well.

Esbjerg with newcomers:Breistøl,Jensen,Jacobsen,Jørgensen can fight for title.It become tradition that Danish clubs which play in CL don’t win title in National competition in the same season,so I think that Københavan and Odense will not win title.Nykobing will be so interesting team with:Sakura,Sunami and one of the best young right backs-Housheer.FCM will be weaker,but it will be nice to see their new players:Skogrand,Iversen...

Video proof is introduced this season in TV transmitted matches (and only).
In 9 possible situations the referees can use video as a help. Its a copy of what has been used in the latest WC and EC.

while I generally applaude the use of video, I don't like the fact that it will only be used in the televised matches, I don't like it one bit. It basically means that the bigger teams with more televised matches potentially can benefit or get punished more than let's say EH Aalborg who will have fewer televised matches. Either do it for all matches or none, but maybe I'm just overthinking this :-k

Yeah, it doesn't really make sense to do it in some matches and not in the others. It's going to be weird. One week it's a possibility, next week it's not. When you are in attendance, it's often not really clear whether or not the match is televised (might just be me).

But it won't be implemented for the non-televised matches in the near future and might never will. There just isn't a technical way it could be done without it being too much of a cost. Money is already an issue.

Theoretically you're right. However, in broadcasted games everything is there what is needed for video decisions. In all the rest of the games it shoud have be installed by the handball federation - financing included.
In conclusion, I declare that EHF must be destroyed

I'll get the ball rolling. this is the stading as I think it will be after the mainround, so not who will be champion.

1st.Odense. They finally have someone that can play instead of Stine J, they are superior squaddepth compared to the rest.
2nd. Esbjerg. We have put together a good team together with a lot of different qualities. I honestly think that Esbjerg has been strenghtened the most out of all the teams.
3rd. København They have a quality team, but I don't think they've added enough squad depth for them not being heavily burdened by playing Champions League
4th or 5th. HIH or VHK For me this is a toss up. HIH has certainly been strengtened on the pivot position but VHK has been the same on RB and RW.
6th. Nykøbing FH watched them play Odense this weekend, and they were rubbish at this point. Further more I think that Sunami will have trouble coping with the physicality of the defenders. Even the smaller Odense defenders just shut her down completely.
7th. Silkeborg They'll be fun to watch, high pace all the way, but the loss of Skogrand will be tough.
8th. RHK Once Dalby, Müller and Roberts have had some games together they will have a decent starting 7.

getting tired of writing so the rest will be as follows:
9. TTH
10. Aarhus
11. Ajax
12. Aalborg
13. Ringkøbing
14. Skanderborg

Go ahead and tell why i'm totally wrong about everything :lol:

I can also give it a go.

#1 Odense: Superior squad to the rest of the league, if you ask me. They certainly have the depth to both be good in the league and still compete in Champions League. They keep the same main core and add quality players to it.

#2 Viborg HK: I think this is the true season where Viborg puts it all together and will compete for the title. Hanna Daglund is back from the concussion and she was for me the best goalkeeper in the league last fall. I have a soft spot for Viborg because I just love their players, so I might be overrating them a bit, but how can you go against Kristina Jørgensen, Line Uno, Ida-Marie Dahl and so on :)

#3 Team Esbjerg: Great, great additions to the team. I think Annette Jensen is the best player they have signed, and I'm not sure she is going to even start for them, so that tells you about the quality team they have. Line Jørgensen is the perfect Jesper Jensen-player to stabilize the defense and the offense will have a ton of firing power.

#4 København: Mia Rej is the best player in the league but can she keep carrying København even with Champions League and all? I think it will take a toll on their placement in the league but they still have a good team. I think there is somewhat of a gap between the first three and the next. I'm looking forward to watching Nusser and Andrea Hansen in action.

#5 Herning-Ikast: It's kind of a rebuild-year for HIH. You cannot replace Veronica Kristiansen, so they will have to all step up to make sure they don't feel her loss too much. I think Fauske is a candidate for breakthrough player of the year as I think she will be the leader for this HIH-team. Sarah Iversen is of course a fantastic addition.

#6 Silkeborg: I think they will sneak up ahead of NFH. Sofie Bæk is the best fastbreak player, and that is the strategy in Silkeborg. Let Sofie Bæk carry the ball at a high speed and create chances. From the pre-season matches I've watched with them, Lea Hansen is going to be a star with Lyksborg out. Easy to root for Silkeborg with their team.

#7 NFH: I love Jakob Larsen but I think they will need time for this team to play well. Sarah Iversen is a massive loss and all due respect to Lagerquist, she's no Sarah Iversen for NFH.

#8 Aarhus United: Homerism hits hard here but I think we can compete for this. Celine Lundbye is everything we needed at the right back. She is dynamic and a threat to shoot from distance. Simone Petersen might have been the most spectacular player last season and she will hopefully keep developing. She is already a superstar in Aarhus.

#9 Randers: I just don't like the Randers-team. I think they are pretty ordinary with a few stars. Julia Eriksson excites me and Camilla Degn is a fantastic player, but they just don't do it for me.

#10 TTH: Simply too many new players, injuries and players returning from injury to get further up. Only having Lærke Christensen as the right back is not a good look for them as she hasn't been performing for a long time. Mathilde Hylleberg can of course do a job as the right back as well. Neesgaard returning from injury will be exciting to follow

#11 EH Aalborg: They have signed so many of my favorite players and former Aarhus-players, so have can I not put them at a decent spot? Laura Damgaard and Line Berggren is such an exciting playmaker-duo and I'm looking forward to seeing them get challenged in the league.

#12 Ringkøbing: Signing of the summer is for me Ringkøbing signing Ida Lagerbon. She will get a ton of responsibility on the team and I think she will carry them far. Having her mixed with players like Mejlvang and Karlsson. Ringkøbing is all of a sudden an interesting team after a few boring years.

#13 Skanderborg: They do need some quality and they will have a tough time but they still have a some players who have experience in the league. Sidsel Mejlvang is ready to be one of their leaders in their return and then they also have the big goalkeeper-talent in Anna Kristensen. Mette Brandt is the player to watch. She had an up and down-season in the 1st divison last year but maybe she can make it work on loan. She has a ton of talent.

#14 Ajax: I like their team but I think they are going to struggle without Ida-Marie Dahl and Cecilie Specht

Probably a terrible prediction but there goes nothing :lol:

The league starts tonight with a very interesting clash between Viborg HK - NFH. However, it´s not televised for some reason.

Herning-Ikast – København 30-29 (15-17)

Herning-Ikast: Helene Gigstad Fauske 9 :D , Stine Ruscetta Skogrand 9 :D , Emma Friis 4, Tonje Løseth 3, Louise Burgaard 2, Sarah Iversen 1, Anne Mette Pedersen 1, Julie Gantzel Pedersen 1

København: Mia Rej 5, Thea Mørk 5, Mai Kragballe 4, Debbie Bont 3, Kelly Dulfer 3, Jenny Alm 3, Anne Cecilie De La Cour 2, Linn Blohm 2, Maria Lykkegaard 2

Norwegians on fire :lol:
So Thorrir’s 2nd choices are doing pretty well too.
Fauske is the present topscorer of the Danish league.

Always dangerous assuming how long players are out, but it looked very serious with Mia Rej and worst-case she is out for a long time. The best player in the league will be missed and København can't replace her. She is simply irreplaceable. The period of time she has been waiting for so long just ripped away from her because of injuries. Incredibly sad and nobody deserves that. Hopefully she will come back for it stronger than ever and prove she is still the best player.

I wonder how far they will drop in level of play with Kragballe and Nusser at the playmaker-position? Kragballe is getting better all the time and she might step up with this. I actually think she will but she can't produce at the same level.

Thankfully for København they have Claus Mogensen and I'm sure he will change the system to fit a team without Rej although it will of course take some time.

Luckily for Cph they have a bunch of games coming up where they should be able to win with or without Rej. The next 5 games they will either easily win or have a very good chance of winning. I'm not trying to downplay Rej's importance for Cph, cos that would be retarded, just saying that they have time to find their feet if Rej is out. Champions league is a different story, that is looking to be a tall order.

There is never a good time for injuries, but it's just so sad that it had to happen right now. I really wish for her a good and healthy recovery if it is as bad as expected.

Copenhagen without Rej is just not the same, but I hope they will be able to step together and find some solutions. Kragballe has certainly been in a good development lately.

Can we stop the league now and just go straight to the playoff? :-" Undefeated in 6 games and playing some great, great handball (with a massive exception in the Skanderborg-match). Simone Petersen, Elver and Pontoppidan is easily the most talented playmaker-trio in the league but thankfully we are past the time with fixed positions in handball, so they can all flourish in the same backcourt. Now a difficult stretch of matches is coming up. NFH, Esbjerg and Odense are 3 of the next 4 opponents. Thankfully Ajax is sandwiched in between.

Bravo Aarhus, I dare to say that no one expected them to perform this well. And as I think I mentioned before I really like Aarhus' chances of creating a major upset on wednesday against NFH. If they can keep it a close game into the second half I believe they can run away with it. But regardless, even if aarhus does lose against TES, OHC and NFH, it's not the end of the world since alot of the competitors for the 7th and 8th playoff spot will do the same.

Traditionally I am very nervous when Esbjerg play Silkeborg, since they have caused us alot of trouble in the past. But today I have a good feeling. Rikke Iversen is apparently not playing, and Müller and Schumacher, while playing today, are struggling with minor injuries. With our current team we should be able to snatch a victory. But this is handball. you never know. Oh man, now I managed to make myself nervous 8-[

So a buttload of money pouring into Odense Håndbold. I'm worried what that will do to the league. Will we get a league where it is already given who will win the Championship, like you see with CSM, Buducnost and Vardar last season. Or will the likes of Esbjerg, Nfh, Cph, HIH and VHK be forced to inflate their budget until a point where it isn't sustainable anymore!? Honestly I don't know which scenario I would prefer. Both seem rather unattractive to me :-k

How you can not see this news as something positive is beyond me. There is neither a "big money man" nor public money pouring into Odense. They are a business that made a good investment and now get the reward of 25 million Danish kroner after the sale. Money which will hopefully mean that we will have a stable, international team representing Denmark for the coming years. I expect the news would have been more positive, had you substituted Esbjerg with Odense. I like the strategy of Odense to count on Danish profiles and perhaps this money would mean that they can afford that one star player for the backcourt that can take Odense closer to titles. For me it would be sad if Esbjerg will dominate the league with a team based on foreigners, so I´m happy with the future competition, because I´m quite sure Esbjerg will win the Danish championship this season.

Honestly, I don't care if it's danish or foreign players, I just don't. And I don't care about having a team that can win the Champions league if it means that the domestic league isn't competitive anymore. I think I would simply get bored. My main fear is actually not that the league will become boring, it's that teams like CPH, HIH AND Team Esbjerg will try to keep up with Odense and that one of these teams will go bankrupt. Remember that we only have one Champions League spot now, so what is Cph gonna do? Abandon their plan to make it to final4 by 2021? When Odense increases their Budget, the rest has to do the same, and that could lead to disaster for some clubs. Now that is ofcause not Odense fault and I'm not blaming them for anything. They do what they gotta do.

Kragballe =D> : https://www.ehftv.com/us/video/rookie-o ... nd/1342868

Next time please put her in the starting 7 ;)


With regard to the Odense situation, I'm not too fond of it either. I would love for the Danish NT to flourish again, but for that I believe a new coach is needed, and the current players and playing style (which of course is pretty much similar to Odense) just doesn't catch my interest - with a few exceptions.
So if you are not a fan of Odense and the current NT, it's a bit difficult to be happy about it. Especially since at the same time it will a big problem for some of the other clubs.
That being said, I'm also not happy (or interested) when a Danish club plays with zero Danish players in their starting 7, even if it wasn't part of the original plan.

All right. I guess this is where we have different views on things. I don´t support a specific team, but individual Danish players - for me the goal is a succesful national team. That being said, it´s always cool to see some international top quality players in the Danish league, but mediocracy for the bench is a clear "no thanks".

Btw, I agree with masch about the current state of the NT. I don´t like their style of play, especially offensively - despite the fact that I actually think Klavs Bruun chooses the right players. However, we have seen no progress for several years and I think it´s time for a change.
