Torino 2006, ice hockey tournament predictions

I disagree : Finland will beat USA and final match will be Sweden (victory) vs Finland. 3rd team will be Russia.
Swedish badly played during groups qualifications but they will react.
Title: Sports
Post by: Akoss Poo on February 22, 2006, 01:29:31 PM
The Finnish and the Slovakians played too good hockey, it's impossible to do it throughout a whole tournament. It's about the same for the Swiss, the dream will be over against Sweden. USA is not good enough to advance to the semi finals. I guess the tournament would really start for the Czechs and for the Swedish now. Watch out for them! But in my opinion, the Russians are the best team in this tournament. With their combinativite, effective and nice hockey, they are my hot favourites of the Olympic Games.

My predictions:

Finland - United States 3-1
Switzerland - Sweden 2-4
Russia - Canada 4-1
Slovakia - Czech Republic 2-3

Semi finals:

Finland - Russia 1-2
Sweden - Czech Republic 3-2 after extra time

Bronze match:

Finland - Czech Republic 2-3

Final:

Russia - Sweden 2-0

My predictions are correct too so far : Finland, Russia and Sweden are still there.
USA (silver in 2002) and Canada (gold in 2002) were not good enough to expect to preserve their Olympic title.
Czech rep. or Slovakia as the 4th semi-finalist won't change anything : top 3 will be Sweden, Finland and Russia.

I saw the Sweden-Czech Republic match, and I almost ejaculated on it! FOREVER SWEDISH HOCKEY TEAM!

I was drinking heavily while Russia sucked against Finland, but the result surprised me very much.

Now in the final: Finland would deserve the victory, because Sweden was unfair when they gave up the Slovak match in order to match with Switzerland in the quarter finals. The Finns only give a very nasty bodycheck to Jaromir J?gr, and this is less unfair I think in ice hockey.
But Finland won't get that gold medal, because the Swedish Golden Team will make them suck in the final!!! :D:D:D

Peter Forsberg was ill at the beginning of the tournament, that's why Sweden had a bad start. And in the end of qualifications they planned to lose one match to be sure to play against Switzerland on quarter-finals. :wink:

For the Germans: you should count your medals in ice hockey, alpine skiing and maybe in figure skating before you're speaking. These are the 3 only sports which count. Other sports - in which the Germans won medals - are not well-known sports, only few countries care of it. Don't overappreciate your mediocre performance, I think. The Swedish ice hockey gold value much more than the 11 German gold medals.

Akoss, it's true that some sports are more known, but I wouldn't say that some medaills count more or less. The olympic spirit is always the same.

About the most popular and spread winter sport - we all agree it's alpine skiing. That's why it's the hardest competition, not only in Olympic games. There are millions of proffesionals in that sport around the world. It means it's very hard to be champion in this. Very hard :) And if you want to see who is the best in alpine sking, you could watch in Torino the Alpine ski COMBINED - men, women. Combination, because it shows skills in downhill and slalom, and thats the best category to see the overall skills of the worlds best pipsqueaks in Torino:

Men - Ivica Kosteli?  - SILVER
Women - Janica Kosteli? - GOLD

And Croatia doesn't even have mountains with ski tracks over 1400m! What could be if we had snow? :)

Of course biathlon is a bigger sport than water polo.

IMO water polo is close to curling  :lol:


Another point is that who is well known is something that's hard to check or even to prove.
The only important indicator would be how much money is being earned with a certain sport.And yes the icehockey team players earn a lot :D


'or the ice dancing champion.'

I don't know,for me that's not important at all.To much about taste and less about real performance.

Water polo is quite popular in Europe, just think on bigger countries like Italy, Spain and Russia. It's an old, traditional sport of Olympic Games. Some big dogs don't like this sport because they are crap in it...  :-D

And some people only like certain sports because they are good at it :)

The whole discussion makes no sense.

I don't know why akoss needs to diss other countries just because JTK was a bit proud about the medals.

And the discussion which sport is more important is about as fruitless as discussing what's the best track in stunts.It's a matter of taste....

Denmark has only won one Winter Olympics medal ever - it was the Silver medal for Women's Curling in Salt Lake City 2002 :D

I think the most important competitions are: downhill, ski jump, slalom, giant slalom, super g, ice hockey

But that's just my opinion, I am not an absolutist on the area...

Water polo is a relatively well-known and popular sport, and not only in Europe. I think not Arg should offend me with considering the sport (water polo) in which HUN are good superior to others, rather the opposite: biathlon is a sport only known among biathlon fanatic ppl apart from the countries which are really good at it (Germany, maybe Norway). It's always the best to be in the most important sports: football, handball, athletics, swimming etc.; and of the winter sports: ice hockey, alpine skiing and figure skating (which is not a sport IMO, but winners are well-known all around the world). Arg, I just attacked A BIT the Germans because when I was proud of our water polo victory, somebody hurt me A BIT when he said who did care about it. I need respect to our water polo team!

Akoss,
you have kept insulting other nations in the last couple of weeks(month?) and I don't get why.
You will find enough examples in this thread or the football thread :),btw laughing about other nations crappy results isn't nice either ;P

Anyways I don't really care to much as I'm -unlike you- not very nationalistic.

But imagine someone else posted stuff about hungary like you do about other nations?

For example want to call your 'Water polo team' dirty actors?
Laugh about the results of the hungarion football team?
Laugh about the fact hungary is nonexistant in winter olympics and nearly nonexistant in summer olympics?


Bottom line:
Don't do to others what you don't want to happen to yourself.

Post by: Akoss Poo on March 05, 2006, 11:20:01 AM
Nearly unexistant on the summer olympics? We won 8 gold 6 silver 3 (or 4?) bronze last time, finished 13th on the medal table, and we are the 8th most successful nation ever on the games. In Sydney we also had 8 golds, in Atlanta 7, in Barcelona and Seoul 10 (or 11?). So...

Hungarian football? Well, we have 3 olympic golds and 2 world cup silver, from earlier times. Now we are not so strong, but we will rise again!!!

And we are only a small and poor country. But sports mean the power of a nation!!!

Argammon, I don't know why you are taking it up as an insult, I'm just saying that our nation is better in a certain sport than an other. It certainly didn't wanted to be an insult.

About Italian water polo players (and about Spanish): if you have ever watched water polo, you maybe recognized that there's always big fight with legs, body etc. under the water. These mediterranean nations often act that somebody faulted against them. And because these nations have good sport diplomacy, the referres always eat this. Serbians play too hard, they slaughter in the pool, so besides the Hungarian team, I like the Croatian and the Russian teams or national team.

Akoss I did not want to argue about how well Hungary is doing in sports.
To be honest I didn't even look up the last medal tables before I made my comment.

I just said that to show you it's not nice if someone disses your country.
And as I know that you are quite proud of your country I think you should be one of the first to realize insulting other countries may hurt other people....


That's all I wanted to say :)

I agree with Akoss, Italian water polo is based on acting, but they have still a world class team. Serbians are very (usually too) agressive in the pool - that's what I miss from the Hungarian team. Hungarian water polo is attractive and effective in the same time (sometimes I think our players are artists, they do the tricks with the ball on very high level) - we are the Brasils of this game. I think our creative gameplay, the Serbian aggression and good defense would result an unbeatable team.

Division I ice hockey WCH starts tomorrow (group A) in Amiens, France! I'm a very enthusiastic fan of the Hungarian team! A strong group B team under the Hungarian circumstances (only 3 strong teams, only 4-5 normal ice rinks)... it sounds really impossible, they did much more than a sound minded person would have thought...

This time we are in the faaaar strongest group. Oppontents are: Germany (1st seed), France (2nd seed, host nation), Hungary (3rd), Great Britain (4th), Japan (5th), Israel (6th).

The Japanese came with a much stronger team than last year, i'm really afraid of them. Israel is full of ethnic Russian players. Great Britain is weaker than us, but they are a 'mumus' of us (we hate to play against them... remember last year's match... :?). France is far worse than the other 2nd seed (Poland) would have been, but I would say the same about Germany (Austria), Great Britain (Estonia) and Japan (Lithuania) too... skid off IIHF btw!

But I hope for a bronze!

My (maybe a bit pessimistic) prediction:

1 Germany
2 France
3 Japan
4 Hungary
5 Great Britain
6 Japan

I'm too lazy to make a summary, and I'm not sure to keep only the informations that YOU want Akoss.
So, here is a full translation (mostly automatic, I corrected some French words that were not translated) :
Quote
Interview of Stalemate Cortina


After being replaced of the station of selector of Italy because the federation had a new project at the head (camp of drive in Canada with players of Italian extraction, entrusted to Mickey Goulet), Pat Cortina became trainer of the national team of Hungary at the same time as of the club of Alba Vol?n. With the championship of the world of division I of Amiens, it finished in fourth position of the group.


- This championship of the world gave the results awaited for Hungary... except this last match against Japan.

Yes, it is that. We were tired, and that compromised our last result. Our objective here was a medal, and we arrived from there rather near.

I believe however, like underlined it the Japanese coach, which it is necessary to give of the importance for the fact that one played the day before against Germany and that one tried to gain the match. The fact of having even been in string for gold is a compliment with my players. I am disappointed that they set out again the empty hands.

But it was shown that one was there. The matches as that against Germany are important for Hungary. It is very proud people, and when the national teams have success, that helps much this sport.


- the carryforward of the Hungary-Israel match lent to polemic in the Hungarian press. Did it really disturb you ?

Yes, we are all the same the only team to have had to play four matches in five days - with of course Israel. Even if this match could appear easier, the following were not it at all, and to connect with France, Germany and Japan, it were really not easy.

Hardest, it was the fact of having to change. Questions were put : "why now", "why only us ?"... It was necessary to work to try to bring back the concentration.


- will Hungary be able to aim at the accession in elite soon?

For a few years still, our objective will have to be to play five goods matches. The executives of our team are growing old. From the athletic point of view, we are not same level as Japan or France. It is a problem of working conditions : the players should not be good athletes to have success, they can have bad habits and rest during all the summer. Like there is not much competition, the players can have a place in the team even with an unacceptable physical condition.


- This message is it listened ?

Not. The conditions around the team do not force the players to work. Admittedly I also make pass this message with my club Alba Vol?n, but I could not really change the things.


- is there a changing in Hungary ? Does the relegation of less than 18 years in residence mark a brake application ?

The situation of less than eighteen years unfortunately was not very well managed, because it was not the priority of the federation. It is sure that it is not in division II that they will be able to develop, but their place is in division I world.

There are some young people, like Hegyi, who made the preparation with us and who will be integrated the next year. The problem is that they were not put to the test, because the championships juniors in Hungary are not competitive. In the world of the men, one is tested tous.les.jours. But as the championship is too easy, the players develop bad habits and take pleasure in old ways of making.

The next year, we will have also the reinforcement of three naturalized : Roger Holeczy, a Am?ricano-Hungarian, Omar Henafati, a Canadian of Moroccan father and Hungarian mother, and Rastislav Ondrejcik, Slovak. It is Alba Vol?n which had recruited them, because that interests the clubs to have young people with the Hungarian roots.

Their presence will enable us to save time. One will be able to thus work with young people and nevertheless to remain in the group B.


- You had very hierarchical lines here, it is a principle ?

Usually, I rather disperse my best players on various lines. I had tried to make it front, and it appeared that it was not the best thing for our team. It was thus the most logical way to make to face this championship of the world. When we have a good center with Holeczy, plus Janos Vas which was retained in AHL this season, we will have what to make better lines.


- Gabor Ocskay was stopped a few months for cardiac problems the last season. Was its return important for you ?

Yes Gabor, it is a complete player, who works extremely and is a good athlete. It is a "good guy", like you say in France. He passed through his problems. Its heart is very very large, from the metaphorical point of view too.


- There are promising indices for Hungarian hockey. One speaks much about Budapest Stars (club assembled by parents of players who assembled oneself starting from the small categories).

Yes, all the initiatives are positive. Since five years and half which I am in Hungary, five skating rinks opened. That, it is really a very important step.


- What brought the trainer ?rp?d Kercs? to Budapest Stars ? One announces his replacement by Robert Spisak for the next season.

Ah ? I did not know. Kercs?, it is a Su?do-Hungarian, who comes from Djurg?rdens IF where it was at good school. Its assets are in the organization and technical work.

What Budapest Stars did, it is to attach more importance to the development and less to the results. If not, when one makes play the best, those who do not have the level drop. They do not have fun, therefore they release hockey. Perhaps that will make it possible to have more players in Hungarian hockey.


- do the clubs seniors of Budapest (UTE and CTF) start to become more competitive ?

Only one of them is competitive, ?jpest. But on another side, one is likely to lose Duna?jv?ros because of his financial problems. To have a team in the capital helps with publicity, but from a technical point of view, it is similar. To have Alba Vol?n plus another club, that is not enough, it is necessary some more. But in any event would, where seek the players ? One will need ten to fifteen years before there is more, with the development of the new skating rinks.


- the Slovenien club of Jesenice required to integrate the Austrian championship. Which will be the repercussions for Interliga and thus for Hungary ?

In my opinion, if Jesenice plays in the Austrian championship, there is no more International League. It adversaries should be found elsewhere, to perhaps turn to Poland. To remain right with the Hungarian championship, it is not possible, it does not have there what.


- Which was the contribution of the players of NHL which evolved/moved in Hungary the last season ?

That brought a little publicity. If one knows a little Budapest, one knows that these players did not come to play hockey, but to have fun. But good, it was important for the Hungarian hockeyeurs of c?toyer this kind of players.


- You knew a federation of the sports of ice in Italy and a federation of hockey in Hungary. What brings independence ?

It is more practical to decide, even if it is perhaps less strong, with less weight. The decision-making process is less long. If there are the means, in Hungary, one does what there is to do. In Italy, the means exist, but before putting them in?uvre, one needed the support of the majority of the politicians.

 
- do you Follow the topicality of Italian hockey ?

Not, not much. I still live in Italy, with the Valley di Fassa, but to tell the truth, I am especially football and Milan...


- It seems that Alvise di Canossa (president of Milan) and Nilo Riva (president of Alleghe), formerly symbols of poles to the opposed ideas, worked together on a project of league. There do you see a positive sign ?

If that is born, it is very positive. But I in arrived in 1988, and there is a thing which I never saw, it is all the Italian hockey which works for the good of Italian hockey. That made twenty years that there are always the same problems.


- did the club frioulan of Pontebba gain the A2 series and should assemble in A. Interesting to develop Italian hockey ?

It would be well for Italian hockey to see a new area represented, but it is not sure that they can play in A. Pontebba had already had to fight so that its team is allowed in the second division, because the other clubs were not interested to go to play over there and make displacement.


- Italy has skating rinks of which it does not do anything. What makes Hungary like effort of development ?

The federation is very active in this field, in particular the secretary-general Zolt?n Kov?cs, who works very extremely in all these projects of new skating rinks.

There is full with things which it is possible to make and whose Italy could be inspired. In Hungary, one sends the national team to patinate with the young people, one helps with the organization and one implies oneself in the development of hockey.


- will you continue your mission for Hungary until this development carries its fruits ?

I spent two years and half formidable in Hungary, I discovered a simple and practical world. People give all that they have, it is easy to work. I will continue to think of Hungarian hockey.

But it acts of my livelihood. The national team, that accounts for three to four weeks per annum, and me and my small daughter let us not live of that.


- Alba Vol?, is it finished ?

Yes I worked hard every day. We gained three championships, it does not have there juniors in the team, we reach the end of a cycle. Under these conditions, to start a new cycle, there are two solutions : either one changes ten or twelve players, or one changes trainer. With the means of the club, the first assumption is excluded, because it is not at its competitors that it will be able to find players, it does not have as much of it there. Therefore, it is the wisest decision which the organization made.


- For this tournament, you reinforced your staff with Diego Scandella, trainer of the juniors of Lugano.

Yes, it is a colleague and a buddy. It is not because one seeks to bring his friends in the entourage, but one tries to find somebody who is quasi-voluntary. Because one of the problems in Hungary, it is that one does not have qualified trainers.


- What misses with the trainers who worked there up to now ?

Technically, the Czechs and Slovak made good job. On the other hand, tactiquement, in the team game and the physical condition, there are gaps.


- Towards which nationalities would it be necessary to be turned in your opinion ?

I am enough amateur of the Scandinavian nations. I think that it is necessary to look towards the Finns. It is enough to take as example what Slovenia [ note did : who had a Finnish trainer these two last years ], which appears a realistic objective for Hungary. In the means and the level, it is comparable, one is there, and they make good job.


- Since you in the search of a club, could you are return to Italy ?

I worked in Italy and there I could have remained, after all my family is there and I miss my small daughter. But it is necessary to try to find a club competitive, which plays the title, because there is too much in Italy which are satisfied of a fifth or a sixth place. I am 42 years old, I still have too much fire in me, I cannot be satisfied with a semi-classification, except if there is a medium-term project to become competitive to four or five years.


- And which is your opinion on French hockey ?

There are good players, a good technique. It is a play enough exciting. One will see this evening if it is also effective

To play with reserve team, losing the championship and having more chance with fit top players in Cup Winner's Cup (ETO)/EHF Cup (Ferencv?ros)? Or will they focus on the championship's prestige. We will see soon.

Go, G?rbicz, go!

Smelly-dirty Podgorica!!!

Gy?ri Graboplast ETO KC-Buducnost Podgorica (SCG) 23-26 (10-14)
Winner: Podgorica, 51-48

Poor G?rbicz, she scored 11 times but nobody else could play wellin this final.

ETO reached international cup finals 5 times (twice against Viborg, once against Ikast, Cornexi and Podgorica) in the last 10 years - we have 5 silver medals. Mental problems? Refrees are dirty? Dunno but it's annoying.

Smelly-dirty Jorge Barrios!!! He won with a super lucky punch and with a super insultive pre-history of the match. Nagy couldn't do the warm-up training before the match because the organizers disturbed him with ignoring/accepting/ignoring his hand bandage. Barrios is a better fighter but 1st round KO is too early. As a realistic boxing fan I say that this knockout would be normal in the 9th-10th round (if he can do the warmup) or with a minimal luck Nagy could survive all the 12 rounds and lose by 116-112 or 117-111.

"In the co-feature bout, Jorge Rodrigo Barrios successfully defended his WBO Junior Lightweight title with a one punch knockout over previously-unbeaten Janos Nagy. The southpaw Nagy was content to use lateral movement as he circled Barrios. Barrios would work behind a jab in attempt to land to the body. Waiting for the right moment, Barrios landed a left hook to the body of Nagy. After a few seconds, Nagy took a knee and winced in pain. Before the count of 10, Nagy stood up in pain, prompting referee Raul Caiz, Jr. to stop the fight at 49 seconds of the round.

After the fight, Barrios was not surprised with the knockout. "I knew I landed a good punch on him," said Barrios, who won the title over Mike Anchondo last year. "If I was going to knock him out, I thought it was going to be a right hand to the head." Asked about future plans, Barrios responded, "I would like to fight the winner of Barrera versus Juarez." Nagy was diplomatic in defeat. "I feel very bad about the way the fight ended. It was a legal punch. I have never been hit like that before." Barrios, from Tigre, Buenos Aires, Argentina, improves to 46-2-1, 33 KO's. Nagy, from Budapest, Hungary, drops to 24-1, 13 KO's."

French guys: do you know anything about Fabrice Tiozzo's career? Will he really retire? I hope not. Zsolt Erdei must kick his ass once.
Yes, he decided to stop because he was tired of waiting the fight versus a real oponent. He didn't consider the Argentinan Hugo Hernan Guara? (fight was planned 19th of november) as a real opponent for him. He was waiting the 100% Frecnh fight versus Jean-Marc Mormeck for almost 2 years (that would mean for Tiozzo to change his weight category) and it has always been delayed...

It was the 19th of October that he announced his decision to retire, but 5 days later he told that he will keep his training "just in case". So, maybe a 2nd come-back is possible for him if the fight versus Mormeck is finally planned.

For information, Fabrice Tiozzo had 48 victories and only 2 defeats, both versus the American Virgil Hill (1993 and 2000).

Btw I guess Garay would knock out Tiozzo easily. I saw both of them boxing. Garay is ways better.

Shannon Briggs will be a very boring world champion. He's just standings, sometimes he hits one or two. Something like John Ruiz, just bigger.

My actual "favorite" is Nikolay Valuev. He's a giant monster.

Title: Re: Sports
Post by: Akoss Poo on December 13, 2006, 05:04:00 PM
Well the chance of Akoss Poo showing up on WSM 2007 is about 70% at the moment. It's possible that I would travel by plane, on the plane, there's weight limit, mostly 20 kgs. That much of beer would weigh dearly, so if I'm ready to bet, only in a smaller amount of Borsodi/Dithmarscher. And I said only that won't be an easy job against Veszpr?m: I guess the aggregate difference won't be more than 3 goals to THW Kiel if THW Kiel goes through the semi finals. The chance for Veszpr?m is 35% to knock out Kiel in my opinion.

Why France can win the men handball World Cup ?
 - France is Europe champion, :)
 - France is World champion each 6 years (1995, 2001 => 2007 ;D),
 - World Cup is in Germany and numerous French players play in Germany, so it's almost like playing at home stadiums for France. :P

Why France can't win the men handball World Cup ?
 - Spain want a revenge of European championship, ::)
 - Germany plays at home, 8)
 - Denmark plays almost at home, ;)
 - Russia, Croatia and Hungary are always difficult to beat, :-X
 - German beer will make French players drunk. :D

Yes, this is half-time. We still have time to take back the lead...
I can't believe it...
but of course this is also because France is already qualified and that Iceland need a victory to be qualified as Ukraine won versus Australia.

Yep, there was a reaction at the beginning of 2nd half but then Abati got a red card. With one less player, France lost versus an opponent that had no other choice than winning to be qualified. Iceland players' motivation was underestimated by French team.
Hopefully, our group is not as strong ad the other one, it should help France to reach semi-finals anyway (or so I hope).

Spain remain favorite of group 2. Another victory for them, versus Russia this time.

About group 1, I was a little bit afraid that French players had still in mind the defeat versus Iceland (12-11 for Poland at half-time). But the real French team was seen on 2nd half and that's a victory 31-22 for France. I feel better now.

Iceland remains surprising, beating Tunisia and therefore taking the lead of group 1 so far. Maybe that's the proof that Tunisia's performance on last World Cup was mainly due to referee's favors... ::)

Sorry, I was ill... :( Now I'm a little bit late. Wasn't it a GREAT game yesterday, Germany against Slovakia? Oh my God! 8)

But last monday was great, too. The Hungarians played very easy, trying to waste no power, just to win (what they did). The team then presented a bis sign saying "Thank you, Kiel". You were ever so welcome! :)

Then came the Danish.Norwegian game - it was so loud, unbelievable! I sat within a big bunch of drunken, shouting Danish people togethger with a friend. We came to our seats shouting "Norway, Norway", but the Danish fans simply laugehd at us as thes saw our grinnings. ;) The game was so hot! In the second half we sazt there like "Denmark is the main round." "Now Norway." "No, Denmark."Norway." "Denmark." ...

It was a great party, and here are some pics from my mobile phone:
1. Here is the Hungarian team (left) and the Angolan, listening to the anthems.
2. Hungarian attack on poor Angolans.
3. Here come the Scandinavians (Denmark left).

Denmark showed you the way to beat Spain. But Danish team had no other choice but winning to hope to be in quarter-finals.

Nice fight in group 1 too and a good victory for France versus Slovenia, with a good goal-average (33-19) that makes France now leader of group 1. :)

Miserable offensive play by Team Hungary today, and a lot of technical errors. I saw the match, we were very anxious, and we just couldn't believe that we could beat Croatia. We had the chances, Croatia also made a lot of mistakes, and our defensive play was fair enough. Denmark beat Spain, that's bad news for us, there's big confusion, we will have to beat Russia on the final day (or Spain, tomorrow)...

Hungary-Croatia 18-25

Marvelous tip from Jacky. :o
France is qualified anyway as Poland won versus Tunisia. :)
Tunisia is already eliminated, therefore quarter-finals will look as European championship and not World Championship !!! ;D No team ouside Europe remain in top 8.
Sadly for France, even if we beat Tunisia (how France can lose versus Tunisia ?), France will have to face Spain or Croatia in quarter-finals. It will be hard !!! :-\

In the 2nd group, winner of Russia-Hungary will be in quarter-finals for sure. Small advantage to Hungary for the moment as a draw could be sufficient to eliminate Russia.

One question : if Russia win and if Denmark loose versus Czech (who are already eliminated), who will be qualified ? In this case it would mean that Hungary beat Denmark (this is already known, it happened during 1st round), Denmark beat Russia (26-24 the 27th of January) and Russia beat Hungary. what can make the difference ? Goal-average or results versus other teams will count ? ::)
Of course, the best would be to see Hungary and Denmark win. ;)

Hungary lost?  :'(
Russia 26-25 Hungary.
Both teams have 4 points and a goal-average of -6. But as in direct confrontation Russia won, then only a big defeat of Denmark tonight could make Hungary qualified.
So far, Denmark has 4 points but +3 of goal-average.
If Denmark loose tonight versus Czech Republic then I think Denmark is eliminated because Hungary beat Denmark in direct confrontation. Else, Denmark and Russia are qualified I think.

Group 1 : France will be 4th of the group, even with a victory as direct fight versus Iceland (the only other team with 6 points) was a defeat for France.
Therefore, It will be France-Croatia next tuesday... I'm afraid France will be eliminated in quarter-finals : Croatia seems invicible since the beginning of this World Championship. :-\
Title: Re: Sports
Post by: Akoss Poo on January 28, 2007, 08:50:48 PM
Naaaah Krys. Now Russia have 4 pts, Hungary also 4, Denmark have 4 without the Czech match. If Denmark loses against the Czechs, this situation will stay. Matches against each other count:

DEN-RUS 26-24
RUS-HUN 26-25
DEN-HUN 29-30

So: Denmark +1, Hungary 0, Russia -1 --->>> 2. Spain 3. Denmark 4. Hungary 5. Russia

If Denmark steals a point, they'll have 5, so 2. Spain 3. Denmark 4. Russia 5. Hungary

If Denmark wins, they'll have 6, like the Spainsh, and because Denmark beat Spain: 2. Denmark 3. Spain 4. Russia 5. Hungary

I corrected the DEN-HUN result, but the sentences I wrote about the evaluation of the situation was totally right. Denmark won and took 2nd place, yes. I guess at least 3 out of 4 teams in our group will reach the semi finals, that was much much stronger a group. I wonder what would the Group I winner Poland do against Hungary (in december we beat them 28-17 in Poland)... or Iceland... there are 2 weaker teams than Hungary which are in the quarter finals, and Hungary can only play for 9th place on Tuesday, against Slovenia...

So, results are :
Croatia 18 - 21 France (it never happened that Croatia scored only 18 goals. Thierry Omeyer (French goalkeeper) did a marvelous match)
Iceland 41 - 42 Denmark after extended time.
Only Denmark remains from the so-called-super-strong group 2. :P

Next to come :
France - Germany (the revenge from group 1 match. It will be as hard as Spain-Germany or Croatia-France. The winner of this match will have 90% chance to be champion)
Poland-Denmark (the weaker semi-finals)
I'd like to see France beat Denmark in the final. ;D

Among the cheaters of cycling sport, Jan Ullrich was my favourite, it's sad to hear that his career is ended.

I said Hungary can reach 6th-10th place in the World Cup, we managed to get 9th place, it's not a bad result, but after seeing the matches of the WC, it's also not a good one.

I think teams of Group II were very tired after almost all of the matches they played had been very close and tiring - qualified teams of Group I were lucky not only by playing against weaker teams, but with this, also playing less tiring games, as it seems. This is a strange WC, the best team, Spain is already out, with Croatia is also out.

As I told before, Sweden used to be the best in handball. Now it's over, including their referees.

Why in Hell last goal of Guigou is refused and the ball given back to France ? There was not enough time to score and it was obviously the best way to let Germany win.
Let me explain : if Guigou made a fault, the goal is refused and the ball is given to Germany. Logical. esle, Guigou made no fault, so goal is valid and the 2 teams go to penalty session.
So, why the gaol is refused and the ball given back to France ?

It was not the only mistakes of the Swedish referees : numerous faults were missed, for both sides. Hens has been excluded very severely at the beginning of the match for Germany for example, and some penalties has been forgotten by the referees in my opinion.

One last problem with the referees : the "hands up" management (I don't know the english name for this rule). Let me explain it then for those who don't know it : when the team with the ball is too long before shooting, the referees put the arms up to let this team know they have only a few seconds remaining before shooting or else they loose the ball.
This rule has been applied for France strictly (no problem, it's the rule) but it seems to me that 3 or 4 times the referees forgot to apply it to Germany...

Anyway it was a great match, a real final. Both teams played hard, both Kiel goalkeepers were excellent.

Germany had more occasion to score but they missed the goal a lot. On the other hand, France was more efficient to score when they could shoot but German efficient defence made us hard to shoot.

Now, Poland will loose in final, that's sure. The match between Germany and France was the real final after Croatia and Spain elimination.

That's the 3rd time in a row that France loose in semi-finals in the handball WC after 2003 and 2005. Too bad but after such a match there's no regret to have, both teams played their best.
Now, let's beat Denmark to get the bronze medal !

On the forum of the Hungarian sports newspaper, all comments are against the referees (who were with Germany in the Spain match, too) and against Germany: in their opinion France was better and played better handball yesterday. They say words on the referees like: disgusting, dirty, cheater, "interesting"; on the German players: selfish, gypsy. Average Hungarian likes Germany and doesn't like the French, but a guy on this forum said, for the very first time in his life, he was cheering for France against the cheater Germans (after the Spainsh match).

Well, it's not my opinion, and I won't say anything, because I missed both matches (GER-ESP, GER-FRA) - but I saw DEN-POL - I just quoted some opinions from an unbiased (non-German, non-French) forum.

Btw I'm always saying in this WCH "that will be the match when the not-so-good Polish team will collapse and discontinue causing surprises", but no, never... they're winning the matches... so now I'm not saying anything before the final. Polish are the biggest friends of Hungary, so I hope Poland will win the gold medal.

Btw I just want to remind you, one month ago, in Poland, in the final of the ordinary (played each year) Christmas Cup (HUN-POL-CZE-SVK):

Poland-Hungary 18-29...

Hungary won the Cup with this, Poland finished 2nd.

I also missed Germany-Spain but I saw Germany-France and the referees did numerous mistakes. Not only at Germany's advantage, but their worst mistake is the finish when the French goal is refused and the ball given back to France. This is illogical. On the TV I saw no fault, but if the referees saw a fault (I always consider that the referees should be considered as the law on every sport, it's a question of respect and fair-play) then the ball should have been given to Germany, not to France. The referees' decision is therefore a real problem that should be discussed in order to avoid that kind of problems in the future.
As a French I'm disappointed with the decision but I won't consider German players as cheaters. Even them were disappointed by the last decision of the referees : France shouted because a valid goal was refused and Germany shouted because if goal is refused then the ball should have been given to them and not to France.


Quote from: Akoss Poo

Difficult to say.
France was more efficient when shooting than Germany and had more creativity I think, but German had a better defence that gave problems to let France shoot. Germany made also more faults than France but France lost stupidly half a dozen of balls in the midfield. This is not acceptable at this level of competition.

When Germany lost the ball it was because of French pressure (like on the last goal refused by the referees) or because they missed a shot. German players made no mistakes when passing the ball between them, France did.

So, I won't say that a team was better than another, both teams played a high-level handball but they both made mistakes that made the score so sharp (France lost too much balls and Germany did numerous shoots outside the goal).

"Selfish", "Gypsy" ?   :D

I love the very reasonable Hungarian press  :D


Seriously, if a paper wrote something like that in Denmark, there would be a major uproar and they would be publicly disgraced and lose buyers.

About "the last goal" in France - Germany: I didn't watch the match, but couldn't the case have been this:

1. A german player makes a foul
2. Referee blows the whistle and the game is stopped
3. Guigou scores

In this case, he scored when the game was not being played (in theory, the german players could have stopped defending - this probably didn't happen because it all went very fast, but that is a quantitative problem). So the goal didn't happen, and the game was resumed giving France the ball.
But I really wouldn't know...
Title: Re: Sports
Post by: Akoss Poo on February 02, 2007, 02:51:38 PM
It wasn't the press! There's a web page of the newspaper, and there everybody can write comments on the articles, or in the forum. Some Hungarian people, not the Hungarian press wrote "selfish" and "gypsy", the journalists wrote only that Germany needed some help from the referees during the end of the match (which referred mostly to that disallowed goal).

Even in Hungary there would be a big scandal if the press had wrote something like the handball fans wrote in the forum.

No, it didn't happened like that. Referees let Guigou play and only after the goal was scored they decide to annulate it. I still don't know why.
Whatever, same kind of referee problem happened to France versus Germany in 2003. WC semi-final as yesterday : France led by 3 goals when Jackson Richardson got 2 minutes penalty for unknown and purely imaginative reason, 2 minutes and a half before deadline. This was enough for Germany to come back in the match and finally win by one point with one more player compared to France.

I only read comments like "cheater Germans" and "sports is business and not a game", "the team won which had to win the WC", "abroad Germany would have finished even out of top4"... and nowhere "the best team won the WC"...

France, on the other hand, had a very dubious performance, and actually only played two good matches, as far as I can see (vs Croatia and vs Germany). They finished 4th in the group and sucked in the bronze match. I don't think they deserve the medals. I can agree about Croatia though, as they only flunked against France, and were supreme in the rest of the tournament.

France played the best when needed. Why winning all the games and loose in quarter-finals ? :P
Anyway, Franch players were obviously still disappointed by referees' judgement on last goal by Guigou that they completely missed the match versus Denmark. Especially the defence.
On the other hand, Denmark players were able to bypass their elimination in semi-finals and find back motivation than French players. So, the result of the match for 3rd place is logical.

I also heard about that. "German mafia" is way too insultive in my opinion.
Referees did numerous mistakes, that's true, but I think both team would have deserved the draw. I really would have liked to see penalty sessions with the best 2 goalkeepers of the world, both playing at Kiel.

IMO, best team of the WC was Croatia. Regular, efficient, and no motivation loss after their defeat versus France. Not like unmotivated France versus Denmark at the 3rd place match. >:(

Advantage for South Korea at WC 2002, yes : in quarter-finals. Else, not.

Advantage for France at Football WC 1998 ? Which match ? I don't remember any advantage except the public and motivation of course, but no referees' advantage.
France won this WC in 1998 because our defence, our midfield and our goalkeeper were at their best. And also with some luck : remember the match versus Italy and the penalty session. Goalkeeper Fabien Barthez made France qualified, else we would have been eliminated by Italy.
Our attack during WC 1998 sucked : numerous easy goals missed, mainly by Stephane Guivar'ch who was probably the worst forward of this WC and also because Christophe Dugarry was injured after the 1st match. Thierry Henry almost didn't play during this WC.
It was really a defence/midfield victory :
 - who scored versus Denmark ? Youry Djorkaeff and Emmanuel Petit, 2 midfields.
 - who scored the golden goal versus Paraguay ? Laurent Blanc, a defender.
 - who scored to qualify us versus Croatia in semi-finals ? Lillian Thuram (twice), another defender.
 - nobody scored versus Italy, the second best defence of this WC.
 - who scored in final versus Brasil ? Zinedie Zidane and Emmanuel Petit, 2 midfields.
Our forwards managed to score only versus Saudi Arabia (Bixente Lizarazu, a defender, also scored during this match) and South Africa. Pathetic.
Overall, 14 goals (penalty session versus Italy doesn't count as real goals) : 5 from forwards (only versus the weakest teams), 5 from midfields, 4 from defenders (and 1 goal against his own team by a South African player that I don't count). 9 of 14 goals not scored by the forwards... Same thing in WC 2006 : 9 goals for France, only 3 from forwards and 6 from midfields but none from defenders.

On the other hand, referees' advantage for France happened in 2006 versus Portugal when they granted the penalty for France in semi-finals.

About handball WC, Spain also made complaints about referees for their match versus Germany in quarter-finals.
Title: Re: Sports
Post by: Akoss Poo on February 06, 2007, 06:32:44 PM
Football WC 98: I also can't remember any referee help to France. They were just lucky. Against Paraguay, against Italy, and against Croatia. In the semi finals, Brazil and France won, the 2 luckier teams... Both the Netherlands and Croatia played better there. 2 good shoots from Thuram - where else did he stroke like that?

WC 2002: Obvious cheating against Italy and Spain for Team South Korea. No more explanation is needed, it's very sad that it could happen.

WC 2006: France got an undeserved penalty in the final, but I doubt that it was cheating, I guess it was only a mistake by the referee. Fortunately, it wasn't enough to beat Italy who became World Champions. But there was a big cheating - and yes, it was the host place, Germany. The WCH should have been organized in South Africa. But on the voting it was 13-12 to Germany. Later it turned out that one of the voters sold his vote to Germany. Without this, South Africa would have been the winner. Germany could keep the previously won right to organize the WC (it's ridiculous... but it's all about business)... but FIFA promised that WC 2010 will surely be somewhere in Africa.

MKB Veszpr?m KC - THW Kiel 39-36

Well... this big rush caused a match with a lot of goals but with a close result, teams couldn't build up an advantage, it was a draw or 1-2 goals of lead for both teams in the majority of the match. In the second half of the second half, Veszpr?m improved on their defensive play, and took control of the match. This didn't mean that Veszpr?m took the lead by a few goals, but not because Kiel was good, rather because the stallin fucked dirty smelly cheater Danish referees (maybe they wanted to take revenge on Kolding's farewell to the Cup) punished the Hungarians undeservedly with a lot of penalties and there was also a lot of 7 meter shots against them... Despite this, Veszpr?m collected a 4 goal lead by the end, but in the end, Kiel scored again (what a surprise, in a man advantage situation). 3 goal is the advantage, but a lot of goals against (almost like a 2 goal advantage)... enough or not, it will turn out soon. I hold on to my opinion, 35% is the chance in this quarter final for Veszpr?m. It is more or less that I expected, but it would have been a victory with a bigger gap if the referees hadn't respected the Western European team (in the Hungarian sports forums, the usual topic is the production of the referees)...

And I said only that won't be an easy job against Veszpr?m: I guess the aggregate difference won't be more than 3 goals to THW Kiel if THW Kiel goes through the semi finals. The chance for Veszpr?m is 35% to knock out Kiel in my opinion.

Well I think I was more or less right. I was mistaken only by a single goal - 4 goals to Kiel in aggregate. Veszpr?m had the chance by the way, but played with many annoying mistakes.

Well, the referees from Russia were really dirty but could not help Vesprem. It was a very nice game, the audience was so loud (we had to - the Hungarians were extremely loud just being 300 Persons). Aaah, that was very good beer yesterday evening! Campions league cup - we're coming!  ;D

There was no problem with the refs, despite the more 7m shots to Kiel with more or less the same 2min exclusions. I can't understand JTK's bad words on the referees. I think the 4 goal difference more or less reflects the difference between the 2 teams - Kiel was better by 4 goals. I can wish to Kiel team now to win the trophy of the Champions' League! :)

Did you watch the game? The referees didn't really see the Hungarian hidden actions, didn't see steps and so on on the Hungarian site. They were better in the second half, though.

The best sports news I've read recently:

http://www.nhl.com/nhl/app?articleid=290484&page=NewsPage&service=page

And Pittsburgh played matches against the top 2 teams of Eastern Conference:

Pittsburgh-Buffalo 5-4, after shootout
New Jersey-Pittsburgh 0-3

Pittsburgh is lying in 4th place in the Conference, now I almost believe that they'll reach the playoff for the first time since 2000-01.

France 30-29 Tunisia (difficult match for France that still had in mind the defeat versus Germany in the World Cup)

7th April:
Poland 30-27 Tunisia (difficult match for Poland too versus Tunisia)
France 35-27 Iceland (nice revenge of the WC, French team progressively comes back to its best)

8th April :
Iceland 30-30 Tunisia (funny, these 2 teams managed not to win any match during this tournament)
France 26-20 Poland (very good match from France that finally got rid of the remembrance of the WC and a nice victory versus vice-World Champions of Poland)

5 Great Britain
6 Romania

Tips for the first day (15/4):

Hungary-Lithuania 4-3
Japan-Great Britain 3-1
Slovenia-Romania 8-0

In the other division 1 group, there is France, Kazakhstan, Poland, Netherlands, Estonia and China.
Best of each group will qualify for elite world championship in Russia (27th April-13th May).

Sadly, Cristobal Huet (French goalkeeper who plays in Montreal, Canada) is still injured. It will be hard for France to be 1st in this group. Poland or Kazakhstan will be hard to beat. Let's hope it won't be like last year when France missed to come back to the elite after our defeat versus Germany...

Netherlands 3-4 Poland (after extended time)

Today :

I think in Group A Estonia have a fair chance to finish second after beating France in a shootout (2 points for Estonia, 1 for France), and playing a relatively even game against hot favourites Kazakhstan.
I don't think the Polish have the power to beat Kazakhstan, but it will be a tough game for them against Estonia, too...

Today in our group:

Great Britain-Lithuania 2-3
Japan-Romania 6-5 (overtime)
Slovenia-Hungary 4-1

Predictions for Wednesday's game in our group:

Lithuania-Japan 2-4
Romania-Hungary 3-4 (always very very hard against them, though there's some difference between the teams in favour of Hungary)
Slovenia-Great Britain 7-1

Hungary-Great Britain 4-2
Japan-Slovenia 1-6 (9 minutes remaining in the match)

With this, Hungary ensured their 2nd place in the final group standings, independetly from Saturday's game against Japan.
Title: Re: Sports

Hungary secured its 2nd position in the final group standings, now they can play without any burden on them on Saturday against Japan, and I think it will mean a Hungarian victory against the surprisingly weakly performing Asians.

Japan-Hungary 2-4
Slovenia-Lithuania 7-0

Division-1 ice hockey WCH in Ljubljana:

Great Britain-Romania 6-1
Japan-Hungary 3-4 (shootout) - Hungary terribly outshoot the Japanese, but couldn't manage to win in regular time
Slovenia-Lithuania 4-2

Final Standings

1 Slovenia 15 (29-5) - promoted
2 Hungary 11 (20-13)
3 Japan 6 (19-22)
4 Great Britain 6 (14-15)
5 Lithuania 6 (13-20)
6 Romania 1 (12-32) - relegated

If on www.centerice.hu the fans are correct, in 2008, the teams will play in the following groups:

Group A:
15th place team in WCH 2007
Poland
Kazakhstan
Japan
Great Britain
Republic of Korea

Group B:
16th place team in WCH 2007
HUNGARY
Estonia
Lithuania
Netherlands
Croatia

Well, our group seems to be fairly easier. :)
There's another version I saw on www.nemzetisport.hu, again a fan wrote the following:

Group A:
15th place team in WCH 2007
Poland
Kazakhstan
Great Britain
Netherlands
Republic of Korea

Group B:
16th place team in WCH 2007
HUNGARY
Japan
Estonia
Lithuania
Croatia

Well, Japan or the Netherlands, I don't think that it would count a lot... so we will probably find ourselves in the easier group (we managed to avoid playing against Kazakhstan, surprisingly finishing only 3rd this year in their group).

About the relegated teams this year, I think Italy has a fair chance to fall back into division-1, and Denmark, Austria can also be in danger. It would be surprise but not unimaginable to see Belarus, Ukraine and Norway to be relegated.

Title: Re: Sports
Post by: Akoss Poo on May 23, 2007, 02:45:42 PM
Thanks... erm... we'll have to face a slight problem in the next few years, the team is getting a bit old, and the 18-21 yr old generation is not strong enough to replace them. If we earn the promotion to Group A next year, we'll fall back as Lad?nyi, Palkovics and Ocskay retires. We'll spend some years in Group B I think, but when the young players of new team Budapest Stars will reach the optimal age (they are about 15 yrs old now... some of them already sold to teams from abroad, e.g. Ill?s Gall? is the scoring leader in the Russian junior league), we can earn that damned promotion.

I think the 7 top teams are untouchable for the other teams, well, there are 8 teams in the QFs. In recent years, it was usually Switzerland who clinched the last quarter final spot. But for Denmark, teams like Germany, Belarus, Latvia are also to be beaten to reach the QFs. Denmark will be in pot 3 next year (12th seed), and they will have to beat a team from pot 2 (5th-8th seed) to be in an optimal position to reach the QFs... well...
Title: Re: Sports

It will not be easy... But remember Denmark has beaten USA and drawn with Canada. And this year, we had a 2-0 lead vs Sweden, but dropped it and lost 2-4.

It's funny how Canada, Sweden, Russia, Finland, USA, Czech Republic and Slovakia are simply so much better than everyone else... But I believe Denmark has worked the way almost up to the next group: Belarus, Switzerland, Germany, Latvia, (Denmark)... Then countries like Norway, Italy, Ukraine and hopefully soon Hungary.

General infos for basketball Euro 2007 :
Group A : Greece, Serbia, Russia, Israel
Group B : Spain, Croatia, Latvia, Portugal
Group C : Lituania, Germany, Turkey, Czech Republic
Group D : France, Italy, Slovenia, Poland
Best 3 of each group are qualified for 2nd turn. Best 3 of groups A and B => group E and best 3 of groups C and D => group F.
Then there will be the duels between teams from different group of 1st turn. All results will count (except those versus the teams eliminated in 1st round) and best 4 of groups E and F will play quarter-finals.
Best 2 of the Euro (that is the finalists) will be qualified for Olympic Games in Beijing except in case Spain is in final because then winner of match for 3rd place will be qualified too.
In my opinion, Greece, Spain and Lituania are potential winners while France, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Serbia are potential semi-finalists.

Group D results of yesterday evening :
Poland 66-74 France
Italy 68-69 Slovenia
Logical victory for France, hard fight between Italy and Slovenia that may be important for quarter-final qualification if they are both qualified for 2nd turn (which should happen, it would be a miracle for Polish team if Poland is not eliminated in this group).
Today : Italy-France and Poland-Slovenia.
This group is not so easy for France. We all remember that Italy won versus France for 3rd place match and got bronze medal in Euro 2003. And for the next match versus Slovenia, it won't be an easy one too : even if France got bronze medal in Euro 2005, we lost versus Slovenia in our group during the first turn. Slovenia even beat future winner of 2005 (Greece) during 1st turn, so they are dangerous. Answers tonight and tomorrow night.

Rugby World Cup 2007 starting this friday with France vs Argentina :

Group A : England, South Africa, USA, Tonga Islands, Samoa
Group B : Australia, Wales, Japan, Canada, Fidji
Group C : New Zealand, Scotland, Italy, Portugal, Romania
Group D : France, Ireland, Argentina, Namibia, Georgia

Best 2 of each group are qualified for quarter-finals.
New Zealand is obviously the most favorite for champion title.
Wales and Scotland just have to play seriously if they want to be sure to be qualified.
England, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia can't be eliminated (expect a miracle happen suddenly).
Most interesting group is D, where Argentina may create surprise that could eliminate Ireland or maybe even France in case Ireland beat France too ! I fear this group, French players seem over-confident and should not forget that Argentina beated France more than once recently and that Ireland will want to compensate their defeat at home versus France during "6 nations" tournament this year...
My tip is France and Ireland qualified anyway, but Argentina is getting better year after year (half of their players play in France clubs and they perfectly know European rugby now) and should not be considered as a sparing partner.
Answer friday evening : France -Argentina.

Basket Euro 2007 in Spain :
Lucky Slovenia that got another victory by one point after Italy : France 66-67 Slovenia.
Too bad, France was leading by 15 points when Nesterovic injured Turriaf, breaking the French rythm and allowing Slovenia to do a good 19-3 period.
Tony Parker was not as good as versus Italy and he lost a penalty shoot at the very end of the match that could have given us the victory.
Anyway, France is qualified for 2nd round.

Another surprise : Spain (world champion and playing at home) lost versus Croatia by one point too. Croatia lost their 1st match in this Euro versus Latvia and Latvia is the team eliminated. Strange results from Croatia...
And last surprise : Russia beated Greece (61-53) yesterday too.

Teams eliminated : Serbia, Latvia, Czech republic, Poland.

2nd round groups :
Group E : Russia (4 points), Croatia (4), Spain (3), Greece (3), Israel (2), Portugal (2)
Group F : Lituania (4), Slovenia (4), Germany (3), France (3), Italy (2), Turkey (2).

Remember that points are 2 for victory and 1 for defeat, not draw allowed (extended time if needed) and points earned versus teams eliminated doesn't count (lucky Croatia for that).
Now 3 matches remaining for each group and best 4 of each group will reach quarter-finals (1st of group E vs 4th of group F, 2nd of group E vs 3rd of group F, ...)

Volley-ball euro 2007 in Russia (start this afternoon).

After a good preparation, French team aim for a final. We beated last week Poland (vice-world champion) and Bulgaria during a tournament in Paris, which is promising and a confirmation of French potential after a final (lost versus Brazil) in last World League.

Goal for us at this Euro is to reach final and then be qualified for World cup (in Japan in November). Then according to World Cup results we can hope to be qualified for Olympic Games 2008 (best 3 of WC will be directly qualified for Olympic Games).

Volleyball Euro system is almost the same as for basketball Euro : 4 groups of 4, best 3 qualified for 2nd turn (2 groups of 6). Then the difference with basketball euro is that only best 2 of these 2 groups of 6 trams will play directly semi-finals.

Group A : Netherlands, Serbia, Germany, Greece.
Group B : Russia, Belgium, Poland, Turkey.
Group C : Spain (most dangerous opponent for France in our group I think), France, Slovenia (let's hope volleyball players will do better versus them than baskeball players) and Slovakia.
Group D : Croatia, Bulgaria, Finland, Italy.

Title: Re: Sports
Post by: Krys TOFF on September 07, 2007, 11:03:31 AM
Running : I never was good in short speedy distances nor too long runs. 1500m was really the best for me. My best result in 1500m was when I was in the army, we always runned this distance. But to be honest I don't remember my best time ever. Something between 4'30 to 5' or so. But I didn't practice since... way too long time (I was in the army in 1994) ! ::) And I'm 10 kg bigger now. So my time at 1500m run would probably be the double now, or even worse ! :D To be honest, I don't want to do the test to verify ! ;D
Quote from: Argammon
did you slowly degenerate after school sport was over?   8)
Seems to be :D, but for me it was after army period was over... ;)

Jumps : my less worse was triple jump, but I was always crappy in all kind of jumps, especially high jump shitty Fosbury technique.

Throws : javelot was my best, easily, and I was quite good there regarding my schoolmates. Not because of my strength, but because I understood the technique of javelot throw better than most of my schoolmates. I was shitty in other kind of throws, especially because of turns needed to gain speed. I often threw the item (disc, ...) outside the limits to the left or to the right. I never liked turning around, I prefer straigth throw like javelot by far.

Team sports : I suck in rugby (I don't have the physical look of Chabal at all !) and football (I suck in technique of football, I just shoot :D).
Basketball : I never was good at basketball, and I'm way too short to be a good one. I was only good at 3 points shoots, because I never was able to score close to the basket : all other players were always much taller than me. Only chance for me to score was to shoot from far. I played a very few in middle school (French name is college, but college means high school in english, so I use middle-school name to describe it, I was 11-15 years-old then) years but prefered handball play by far.
Handball : first I was left forward in middle school team, and then I was goalkeeper in high school (16-18 years old) because there was too much forwards already in the team and because I was not too bad in goalkeeping, but got tired of beeing goalkeeper after one year so I stopped and played volleyball for the last 2 years of high school before university.
Volleyball : as I'm not tall (1m75 tall "only") I was regular back player/defender and specialized in passes as a forward. The 2nd year I remember we finished 3rd in regional high school competition. Then I went to university and stopped team sports to have more free time for girlfriend(s).

I was just doing some runs and a few bicycle sport during university. Other free time was for concert and girls. ;D But going to listen a concert was a sport for me, I remember I lost 2 to 3 kg per concert. Ok, it was almost heavy-metal only, that's why. I was doing pogo during all the concert. :D

I don't remember any high score or so to be honest, it was quite a long time ago and the only regular sport I do now is bicycle with my children, so level is poor compared to Alain's or Zak's bicycle levels. ;D

Group B : Russia 3-0 Belgium (Poland-Turkey tomorrow too)
Group C : Spain 3-1 Slovenia and France 3-1 Slovakia. Logical results and a surprisingly good Slovak team in the last 2 sets)
Group D : Bulgaria 3-2 Croatia (shitty start of Bulgaria that lost the first 2 sets) and Italy 3-2 Finland. That's a surprise to see Italy in such a trouble, they should have won 3-0, and Bulgaria too. Good for France if some teams are tired and not as good as they are used to be. ;)

Many sports you tried Mr T?ff!

About ball games: my 3D eyesight is too bad, my skills are just crappy in them. Usually I played goalkeeper because that was the only position where I was one of the bests maybe because of reflex and no fear of forwards (am I right Mr Poo? ;D).

My personal records:

60 m - 8.2
100 m - 13.04
200 m - ~29.0
800 m - 2:50
1250 m (primary school lap, street running) - 4:53

High jump - 160 cm

Laying weight-lifting - 97.5 kg (my weight was about 70 kg)

Pulling together legs in a thigh muscle trainer machine - 170 kg

Press-ups - ~80

100m: 11,9
200m: ~24
400m: ~53
800m: don't remember but it was *bad*
>800m: *bad*

long jump: 5,94 at school competition... High: ~1.80 but not fosbory but strattle...

Javelin: Never learned the tequnique thus *bad*
Never used a disc or hammer!

Football:

Very good goalkeeper due to good reflexes. Decent attacker... bad on any other position  ;D

Quite good on any distance. I prefer between 100m-200m though.

France 12-17 Argentina !! (Rugby WC result)
I was right to be afraid of the Argentinian team, they know French rugby too muchj as numerous of their players play in French clubs. Result is that they managed to always block French rugby that is mainly based on movements and passes. It can't remember how many passes they intercepted !
French players were over-confident as I feared and Argentinians did well according to they strategy.
Ireland rugby is not like French one and Ireland is supposed theorically to win versus Argentina. That's why now France have no other choice than winning versus Ireland, which won't be easy at all too.
Damn ! that's the first time since rugby WC exists that France loose a 1st round match. Let's hope it won't be also the first time that France gets eliminated since the first round... ::)

YES! Great victory for Argentina (We defeated France 5 out of 6 last matches). We played amazingly well an made 127 tackles! Great defense! We managed to get a good advantage (due to many pass interceptions) at the beggining and then defended the result with heart and claws (that's why we're known as Los Pumas -which means Cougars-). I'm not so sure Ireland is suppose to beat us, remember IRB World Cp '99 when we kicked their ass. And we defeated them many times in the last few years. Anyway. next match is Georgia and should be quite easy, getting bonus there would have been great for Argentina's chances to advance to 1/4 finals. Let's see how everything goes.

Sports for me:

SWIMMING - I can swim, but not too fast. I am not a bad breaststroke swimmer, and I can swim more than 1 kilometres in that style of swimming. I am faster in crawl, but it is a faster kind of swimming, and I think relatively I am a bit worse in this style than in breaststroke. I get tired easily in crawl. I don't prefer the backstroke too much (but I can swim in this style, too), and my arms and my technique is not good enough for the butterfly (so I can't swim in butterfly).

HANDBALL - It was really only once when I tried this sport, and I didn't know the rules. We were playing against the girls, who played handball in almost each of their P.E. classes. I guess we beat them (although we never played handball before), but I wasn't among the best in my team. I guess handball wouldn't have been my sport.

BASKETBALL - Probably my worst team sport. I am a bad thrower, and I'm not able to take the ball away from the others. I compensate this with enthusiasm, running, ball stealing, passing... but it is usually not enough. I also don't like in this sport that there are too much annoying rules...

VOLLEYBALL - I only played a few times in primary school in class, and a few times on the playground (and once in a friend of mine's garden at the closed entrance, the fence was the net :)). I felt that I would be a decent player in this kind of sport (well, maybe because I was born in one of the most volleyballish town in the country), although I never had the possibility to prove this.

FLOORBALL - We played floorball on P.E. classes, and they said that I was a decent player. I always scored goals, my reflex shots often surprised the goalies.

HIGH JUMP - I didn't have the technique for this athletic event, and I also wasn't able to jump off the ground to a great height.

COMBAT SPORTS, SPORTS WHICH NEED PHYSICAL POWER - I was never interested in that kind of sports, so I am quite weak in them. I had a wrestler P.E. teacher in primary school, so everybody in our class had to compete in the wrestling championship in my town. Well, related my skills and obsession for this sport, I wasn't performed badly, I finished in the middle of the crew.

TABLE TENNIS - well, I have a good serve game, though I can't really add a spin to the ball. It always flies just over the net quickly, and it is quite accurate, too. I am also not bad at giving balls back to the opponent (though a spinny ball can cause problems). Generally, I think I am above average in this sport. I also tried tennis 1-2 times, and I felt I would be able to do around the same results there.

FOOTBALL - without a doubt, I am an offensive player on the football pitch. I always liked to play a wing or a forward. Advantages of me: shooting power, shooting accuracy, scoring, passing, agility, enthusiasm; earlier stamina and running also belonged to that group. I am also a very reliable penalty shoot taker, I beat many great players (much better than me, playing in regional first division) in this discipline. Mediocre: sprints, heading (on a bad day, it is weak), positioning. Weak: ball in the air, tackling, goalkeeping (on a good day, it's mediocre).

Post by: Chulk on September 11, 2007, 06:18:29 AM
About Athletic sports: Never tried any of them but long jump (around 5 metres was my best, average was 4.6)
HANDBALL: I played in school for about 6 years (from 6 years old to 11 years old). I was always left wing as I was very fast and I'm right handed (I lost some speed when I grew older)

FOOTBALL: I'm a very good defender, as I have a good view of the attacking team and usually anticipate the forward's moves. My best position in the field is Classic 8 (Right Mid-Fielder) due to my defensive skills, my view of the game both when attacking and defending and my speed. I can also shoot quite accurately and with good power. My worst position is GK, as my reflexs are not that good and my arms and hands are quite weak.

VOLLEYBALL: Definitely my best sport (from 13 Y.O. to 18 Y.O.) I was Outside Hitter mainly, less often I was Opposite Hitter. I'm not very tall for this sport (only 1.80 m.) but I compensated with a great (and very heavily trained during 6 years) vertical jump. My defense skills where good not because of my reflexes, but due to the fact that I was shorter than most of the players and had good positioning fast.

SWIMMING: I don't like to swim, so I can only do crawl if needed, but that's it. Besides I can't stand the Chlorine that is used to keep pools clean.

TENNIS: I really suck.

BTW: What is floorball?

Perfect sports weekend! In football (off-topic) Gy?ri ETO FC beated Feh?rv?r (4-1), Ferencv?ros couldn't win in second class and they are only 9th.  ;D

?gnes Sz?vay won the tournament in Beijing after an incredible match: she was to lose, Jankovic (3rd on WTA ranklist) had match ball at 6:7 (7-9), 1:5. But Sz?vay didn't give up, turned to 7:5 and won the next round too: 6:2. Amazing performance!  :o

MotoGP, 125 ccm: G?bor Talm?csi increased his lead in the championship versus Hector Faubel with a nice, tactical drive in Japan. Talm?csi finished 2nd behind Pasini and overtook his spanish rival by 20 seconds.  :D

Female handball: biggest game in Hungarian championship so far, Gy?ri Audi ETO KC's guest was the last year's (undeserved) champion, Ferencv?ros. Real difference came out this time: ETO knocked out the champion. Anita G?rbicz scored 16 goals.  :o  :P

Gy?ri Audi ETO KC - Budapest Bank FTC 32-24 (16-14)

I don't. France is much stronger than England so I hope to see a Argentina - England Final match. Besides, we have already beat you, so now you know how to play against us, but England is not that versatile and they can't change their way of playing as France can to exploit Argentina weaknesses.
But of course first we have to beat RSA, which I don't think we'll do. Argentina players are very tired and RSA is very strong physically. But hopefully we can give another surprise...

Help ? Did you saw any special attitude from referees during this world cup ? IMO, it was one of the best regarding referees' attitude, even in matches where strong countries (like Australia or New Zealand) were versus small ones (Portugal, ...). During previous world cups, when a situation was sharp and referres' decision important, referees always decided against small countries, which didn't happen during this world cup as far as I know.

To be honest, I remind much more a strange attitude from a referee in favor of Germany during handball world cup semi-final France vs Germany in Germany during last moments of 2nd extended time.
Check there (http://stunts.mine.nu/forum/index.php?topic=1459.285), the strange decision regarding Guigou :
Quote from: me
Why in Hell last goal of Guigou is refused and the ball given back to France ? There was not enough time to score and it was obviously the best way to let Germany win.
Let me explain : if Guigou made a fault, the goal is refused and the ball is given to Germany. Logical. Esle, Guigou made no fault, so goal is valid and the 2 teams go to penalty session.
So, why the goal is refused and the ball given back to France ?
Title: Re: Sports

"The referee helped a full-European semi final to be played" - says the Hungarian Rugby Federation's web page. I read the same on some international pages, too; and the experts on the Hungarian Sports TV also said the same - if there hadn't been for the referee, New Zealand would have got through the semi finals.

The Hungarian rugby page mentions that the New Zealand team possessed the ball 60% in the first half, 70% in the second half, but didn't got ANY penalty shots, which was very interesting, because French players often run to offside at scrums (in the 78th minute they cleared the ball from an offside position, which would have been a try to New Zealand). On the other hand, the referee did everything to give a penalty to the French. What's more, the winning French try also occured at a strange situation: there was a forward pass in the attack. This page says that it's sad that such phenomenons (strong referee help) appeared even in this clear and beautiful sport.

I think it's very important to listen to read the independent, neutral opinions after a match where you support a team very heavily (for instance because it's your national team). People always tend to be biased against their supported team. There's nothing wrong with it, everybody is like that; but a neutral eye can see the match in a different aspect, which is much closer to the real.

The page also says that England beat Australia without any help from the referee. They also said that Argentina was killing time and killing play in the end of the game against Scotland, and they almost paid for it. They praise the Fiji team who played their best against the very strong South Africa team.


Handball: yes, that WC was in Germany, and Germany didn't deserve the gold medal, the referees were as disgusting there to help them (the home team, too) as now on the rugby world cup.

I guess when CTG mentioned the football World Cup, he didn't think about the French team in 1998 (I think they were just lucky, especially against Italy in the QFs); rather about the South Korean team in 2002. It is another great example that the referees help the home team disgustingly on World Cup events in some sports.

On the other hand, the referee did everything to give a penalty to the French.
NZ rugby style is not to search for penalties, this is the English style. NZ always wants to score a try, playing with speed and movements and hand game mainly.
Of course, ball possession was mainly NZ one, this was the goal. The French strategy clearly was to force NZ to play, but to always block any attack (look at the stops made by French player almost 180 !!! Only around 40 stops for NZ) and keep the ball as much in NZ part of the field.
This way, even if NZ gets a penalty (and they got some, don't tell that they got none), they would have been too far from French side to be able to score easily. This happened on the last penalty for NZ at the end of the match : the NZ shot was too short.
Then, following this strategy, the goal was to use any opportunity opened by NZ due to their attacks blocked by French players. And it worked perfectly : France did only 2 real attacks, and scored a try on each one.

Quote from: Akoss Poo
the winning French try also occured at a strange situation: there was a forward pass in the attack.
This is right, but the referee at this moment was behind the players and couldn't see it. It's a failure of his 2 assitant-referees that should have signaled it. But it seems they also were "late" and so they were behind the action. I don't think it's a deliberate mistake, it's just a bad placement of the referee regarding the action.
And, in rugby, if the main referee doesn't ask the video confirmation, the video referee doesn't have the right to signal anything, which is quite strange but it's the rule in rugby...
To be honest, I didn't saw this forward pass when action was played, it was too fast. I saw it with the replays published on TV after France scored. French commentators also saw it only with the replays. Let's say that it's our "hand of God". ;D

France need a revenge versus Argentina and South Africa proved that they were able to play both "handy and movements" rugby like New Zealand or France do the best (why in Hell France decided to play like England versus England ? It was a good idea versus New Zealand, but not versus England) and also the "high defense and footy rugby" like England do best. So, my tips are :
FRA 23-6 ARG (high pressure from France, and Argentinian players are now really tired as seen versus South Africa)
SA 30-9 ENG (England will be able to score this time, but won't be able to avoid SA scoring 3 tries).

France dominated during first 30 minutes, with scoring only 3 points. A pity, we did the same mistakes as versus England, loosing too many balls and with a clear impossibility to change our strategy or rythm.
On the other hand, once France diminished its pressure, Argentina managed perfectly to play what was before the French style rugby : hand actions with movements, innovative actions, a few faults, only a few foot play, and rapidity.
Logically, Argentina won a well-deserved 3rd place, well done and congrats.

Some results of the final part of Women handball World Cup in Denmark :
France 25-23 Denmark
Russia 30-27 Norway

Denmark is current Olympic champion, but yet not qualified for forthcoming World Championship in december in France. Russia is current world champion, it will be very hard for France in final. During preliminary roubnd, the only match lost by France was versus Norway. Logically, if Russia beat Norway, they will win the World Cup.

Next events :
 - Paris tournament in November : France, Tunisia, Poland and Brazil (22-25 november 2007)
 - World championship in France (2-16 december 2007)
After beeing world champion 4 years ago, France ended only 12th (but with almost only new players) 2 years ago when Russia won back the world championship versus Romania. So, the final of the World cup versus Russia will be a very good preparation for the forthcoming World Championship.

YES! Amazing victory for us! I really thought we were going to lose by a lot in first 25 minutes or so, but then 2 tries and 14 points difference put more pressure on France. There were 3 key moments in this match.
1- Argentina managed to keep France from scoring in the first 20 min and striked back twice in few minutes.
2- Argentina managed to keep France from scoring before half-time, demoralising the French player
3- Argentina had 1 player less (Leguizamon hit Chabal on the neck, I loved it as I hate Chabal) and France started to pressure harder and harder, but Argentina scored, definitely killing France spirit.

Yes, Springbocks won. That's what I wanted so Argentina was only beaten by the World Champion.

Nice resistance from Brasil : 26-26 versus Russia. But not enough to be qualified because they lost versus Macedonia. But it seems that Brazil is  one of the favorites to get 13th place.

Good result from France too : 28-26 versus Croatia. We have 2 points already, and all points will count as top 4 of each main group will be qualified. We will have to beat Angola (nice result for them to be qualified) and Macedonia (both of them have no points so far) to be almost sure to be qualified because after we will have to play versus Russia (current World Champion) and Norway (current Europe Champion), who also have 2 points already. And it will be really hard to beat these 2 teams...

On the 2nd group, Germany and Romania have 2 points, Spain and Hungary have 1 point. Poland and South Korea have no point.

It was quite similar : numerous Argentinian rugby players play in France, and some top players of Angola played in French handball teams too a few years ago.

Exactly, we were not considred favorite versus Croatia, and we finally won. We were logical favorite versus Angola, and lost stupidly a match that should be won. France was leading 16-11 at the half-time. We stupidly let Angola back into the match at the beginning of the 2nd half (Angola was also helped by referees who gave a lot of 2 minutes exclusion to French players), and then Angola played well and never let France come back.

Hungary came back into the business in group 2 with a victory 28-26.

France is now sure to be qualified, whatever the results of the last 2 days because Croatia and Macedonia has no point and they both lost versus France. So France is sure to be at least 4th of the group, even if we loose versus Norway and Russia (which will probably happen...) while Macedonia and Croatia win their last 2 matches.

Group 2 : another draw for Hungary : 30-30 versus Germany. It will be hard for Hungary versus Romania for the next match : Romania won 3 matches of 3 on the main round, and just won 32-19 versus Spain while Hungary got only a draw versus Spain some days ago...

Anyway, there's nothing else to say about our result versus Russia : it was expected, and the manager decided to change the team and let play the usual back-up players as France is already sure to be qualified. I hope it won't be such a big defeat versus Norway... ::)

In 2003, Hungary was favorite and let France came back into the match (just like France did versus Angola, letting Angola win finally). And France won the World Championship in the end.
Now it's different : numerous French players retired after 2003 and France is not back to the top teams. We are a good team, but not a top team as we were in 2003. Norway, Russia and Hungary are supposed to be the 3 top teams, even if Hungary hadn't proved it really before tonight compared to Russia and Norway. :P

We have to avoid a match with France. Reason is simple: it's easily predictable that refrees will help the home team. Even the stronger Russia sounds better for me... But of course Angola is the best choice. We just have to make a draw with South Korea... ;D

France will loose versus Norway, so we will be 4th of our group. Therefore, you just have not to be 1st of your group to avoid playing versus France in quarter-finals. :D It will also depend of the result of Germany-Romania.

After a marvelous start (6-2 for France) versus Norway, then France had a bad period just like versus Angola. So, Norway took back the lead 8-6, and then 10-8. At this moment, Val?rie Nicols (French goalkeeper) did a great job and at the half-time France is leading 11-10. I wonder how will be the 2nd half...

Even if France wins versus Norway, we will still be 4th of our group and Norway will still be 1st.

So far, sure QF are :
(G1 - G2, bold mean future winner from me)
Norway - South Korea or Spain
Russia - Hungary
Angola - Germany
France - Romania (yes, I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one :P)

Regarding the language, Romania has a latin-like language, like Spain, Poprtugal, Italy and France.

Too bad for Hungary : they lead 34-31 and finally lost 36-35 versus Rusia in QF of female handball.
Germany won too but it was not easy for them too versus Angola.
Very easy victory from norway versus South Korea.

Right now it's the last match : Romania-France. At the half-time France lead 14-8 with a wonderfull defense.

This is over, France missed too much passes during 2nd half and let Romania back. During extended time, France missed easy goals while Romania missed much less.
Final score : Romania 34-31 France :'(

So, SF are (bold = my tip for winners) :
Norway - Germany
Russia - Romania

classification matches will be :
South Korea - Angola
Hungary - France (according to the match played versus Russia, Hungary is now favorite for 5th place overall).

1st part of this prediction was right, I hope for you that 2nd part will be too. ;D

Final will be (logically) Norway vs Russia
Match for 3rd place will be Germany vs Romania
Match for 5th place will be South Korea vs France
Match for 7th place will be Angola vs Hungary.
Bold means my favorite for each match.

Anyway, I'm still surprised to see that France beat hungary (32-27). After the match played by Hungary versus Russia, Hungary was my favorite for 5th place. France lost by 12 points versus Russia, and yesterday Romania (same level as France, look at the QF match between these 2 teams) lost by 10 points versus Russia. Hungary lost only by 1 point versus Russia, and they fall down by 5 points versus France. It seems really that Hungarian players are inconstants, able to be among the best (like versus Russia), or to be a middle-class team (like versus Spain, South Korea or France). Quite strange...

Also, we now know that Russia is qualified for Olympic Games in Beijing. Norway was already qualified as European champion. Winner of World championship will be qualified too. In case Norway is World champion, then the vice-champion of Europe will be qualified. Russia is vice-champion of Europe. So, whatever the result of the final match, Russia will be qualified for OG.

Nations qualified 3 to 7 will have the right to play qualificative tournaments for OG. Last chance for Hungary to play OG is to be 7th. 8th team in World championship won't be at OG, that's sure. Good luck Hungary. And go France, kick South Koreans' asses and take the 5th place. We beat Norway and Hungary and almost Romania, we deserve to be in top 5. ;D

Men handball Euro in norway, 1st day :

Group A :
Slovenia 34-32 Czech Rep.
Croatia - Poland is beeing played right now

Group B :
Russia 25-25 Montenegro
Denmark 26-27 Norway
Too bad for Denmark, but Norway had the advantage to play home. The draw of Russia may help Denmark

Group C :
Germany 36-24 Bielorussia
Hungary 35-28 Spain
Logical victory of Germany, good result for Hungary, Spain is never easy to play.

Group D :
France 32-31 Slovakia
Iceland - Sweden beeing played right now.
Logical but very difficult victory for France (current Euro champion) versus the weakest team of group D. I hope defence will get better for the next 2 matchs, else we will loose !
The last days for French team were crazy and preparation was not good : French team went to Budapest (2 matches won versus Hungary ;D) and then Spain (victory versus Argentina and Montenegro, defeat versus Spain), had numerous delay due to airplane late, they lost their equipement during the flights, ...
Last 10 days of preparation were just stupidly managed, we should have travelled only once, that means we should have played home versus Hungary (or another team) before going to spanish tournament. Now, French team arrives in the Euro competition beeing already tired. Stupid management IMO, I fear we won't stay Euro champion.

Anyway, winner of this tournament will be qualified for Olympic Games, except if Germany (already world champion and qualified for Olympic Games) is the winner. then I don't know if finalist of world championship (Poland) or finalist of this Euro will be qualified. Anyone knows ?

Results of teams concerned in the Stunts forum:

France-Iceland 30-21
Germany-Spain 22-30
Denmark-Russia 31-28
Hungary-Belarus 31-26

France qualified as group winners, carrying 4 pts to the main round.
Germany qualified by finishing 3rd in their group, carrying 2 pts to the main round.
Denmark qualified by finishing runner-up in their group, carrying 2 pts to the main round.
Hungary qualified as group winners, carrying 2 pts to the main round.

Main Round

Group I

Croatia 4, Norway 4, Denmark 2, Poland 2, Slovenia 0, Montenegro 0.

Group II

France 4, Hungary 2, Spain 2, Sweden 2, Germany 2, Iceland 0.

Olympic qualification:

The 2 best non-qualified teams (for the final olympic qualifying tournament) qualify for the final olympic qualifying tournament.

The winner of the ECH qualifies for the Olympics. If POL, DEN, FRA, CRO, RUS or ESP wins ECH or finishes 2nd behind Germany (this version is quite possible), ISL will automatically get qualified for the qualifying tournament.

Teams in competition for that 2 places: Norway (having 4 pts for the main round), Hungary (2), Sweden (2), Slovenia (0), Iceland (0 - but hopefully jumps out of competition because of things written above) and Montenegro (0). That means Hungary will probably have a key game for keeping olympic hopes alive against Sweden on Tuesday.

Today is a great day.

Handball :
Group 1 : Germany is beaten by France, France is the only unbeaten team in this Euro and is sure to be in semi-finals while Spain (World champion in 2005) is already out. Germany (World champion 2007, thanks to the referee in semi-final versus France, no comment as we already talked about it) is also in great danger while Sweden seems to be back progressively to what it used the be (that is, the best team in the whole world during a decade).

I think that Sweden can beat Germany and be in semi-finals with France, they are better match after match while Germany know that they are already qualified for Olypic Games so they are less motivated.

Maybe Hungary can win versus France as France is now sure to be qualified and will give more rest to its best players during the match versus Hungary. But Hungary can't be in semi-finals anyway now, whatever the result of Sweden-Germany. The winner of Sweden-Germany will be in semi-finals, a draw between them will bring Sweden in semi-finals.

Group 1 : Denmark is not Olympic champion for nothing. They did it very well, getting better and better match after match, like Sweden. On the other hand, Croatia is still powerful but Norway is a real danger for Croatia, and today's match between them is a real quarter-final.

Denmark is almost already qualified, only a defeat of Denmark versus Slovenia and a draw between Croatia and Norway would put them out of the semi-finals (in this case Croatia and Norway would both be qualified).

Tennis : TSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA !
Incredible victory versus Nadal in semi-final at Australian open : 6-2 6-3 6-2 !! Excellent. ;D

Sure, nice match. I'm not sure France could have won in final versus a motivated Denmark like that. Sadly for France, Danish victory makes our Olympic qualify group harder : France will organize a tournament at home at the end of May versus Spain (ouch), Norway (in progress, still dangerous) and Tunisia (one of the best team of Africa continent) ! It will be hard...
A victory of Croatia would have made us fight an easier group (Russia, Algeria and future vice-champion of Asia). ::)

Sure, it was difficult for all the players to perform so many matches in less than 2 weeks... Obviously Karabatic was one of the most tired as he played a lot because he is a key member of French team. He had some rest versus Hungary as France was already qualified for semi-finals, but versus Croatia he lost too many shoots that should have not been missed. This happens to him each time he is too tired. He played much better versus Germany for the 3rd place match (France 36-26 Germany).

Apart from that, Sweden proved to be back progressively to their glory with reaching 5th place versus Norway while Poland exploit during World championship (finalist versus Germany) seems far away.

Thank you on behalf of my country :)

About the many games in little time, our coach listed it as part of the reason why we won: we had all 16 players in rotation, so everybody got a decent amount of rest from time to time. This has really been a big thing here, TV was on for 3 hours just broadcasting the homecoming of the team, being celebrated all the way from the airport to the "Town hall square" in Copenhagen, lots of people there... I suppose now that our football team is dropping in quality, people turn to handball instead. I'm a bit sad that Croatia won the semi final against France, because if Denmark had played France in the final, we would have had a chance to beat all the good teams in tournament and be a more true champion. Now France can still say: "maybe we would have won" (although I acknowledge that you didn't, Krys :))

Alba Volán's first year in the very strong Austrian Erste Bank Ice Hockey League has finished at the moment.

Qualifying Round for the 7th-10th place (7th-8th joined the playoff):

7. ZM Olimpija Ljubljana (Slovenia) 12 pts (25:10)
8. TWK Innsbrucker Haie 10 pts (19:18)
--------------------------------------------------------
9. EC Graz 99ers 4 pts (9:19)
10. Alba Volán SC (Hungary) 4 pts (9:15)

(between 9th and 10th place, the results between the two teams decided: Alba-Graz 0-1, Graz-Alba 1-2 after penalty shootout)

Main Round for 1st-6th place:

1. EC Vienna Capitals 18 pts (40:23)
2. EC Klagenfurter AC 16 pts (45:30)
3. EHC Liwest Black Wings Linz 14 pts (36:35)
4. EC Red Bull Salzburg 13 pts (37:33)
5. EC Pasut Villacher SV 7 pts (29:44)
6. HK Acroni Jesenice (Slovenia) 6 pts (24:47)

Quarter finals:
Vienna-Innsbruck, KAC-Olimpija, Linz-Jesenice, Salzburg-VSV

The Regular Season standings were (which preceded the Main/Qualifying Round, and meant some bonus points for those)

1. EHC Liwest Black Wings Linz 53 pts (111:91)
2. EC Vienna Capitals 52 pts (122:86)
3. EC Red Bull Salzburg 48 pts (121:108)
4. HK Acroni Jesenice (Slovenia) 47 pts (100:94)
5. EC Klagenfurter AC 45 pts (119:102)
6. EC Pasut Villacher SV 42 pts (109:109)
-----------------------------------------------------
7. TWK Innsbrucker Haie 41 pts (124:116)
8. ZM Olimpija Ljubljana (Slovenia) 38 pts (108:107)
9. EC Graz 99ers 35 pts (99:132)
10. Alba Volán SC (Hungary) 14 pts (69:137)

Matches when we got at least a point:
Jesenice-Volán 2-1 a.e.t. (regular season)
Graz-Volán 4-3 a.e.t. (regular season)
Volán-Villach 3-2 (regular season)
Ljubljana-Volán 1-4 (regular season)
Volán-Innsbruck 1-2 a.p.s. (regular season)
Volán-Linz 3-0 (regular season)
Graz-Volán 4-3 a.e.t. (regular season)
Villach-Volán 3-6 (regular season)
Volán-Salzburg 4-1 (regular season)
Innsbruck-Volán 1-3 (qualifying round)
Graz-Volán 1-2 a.p.s. (qualifying round)

Biggest defeats:
Salzburg-Volán 7-0
Volán-Innsbruck 0-6

Very tough season for Alba Volán... now they can concentrate on the Hungarian Championship, where they are hot favourites. Our top players were really worthy for the Austrian League, they were dangerous for all of the teams: Palkovics scored 37 points in 42 matches (20 goals, 17 assists), they were among the league's really best, he was chosen for the All Stars game, too. Ocskay had 29 points (8+21), he was very good, too. Our team is very poor related to the Austrian teams, so we could not afford buying some great, NHL-level players like them. The Austrian teams were led by their foreign (American, Canadian) players, while Volán's best players were Hungarians - and the Palkovics line performed really very well. They were equal to the lines of the Austrian teams, which were "A" group level lines - but Hungary does not have more "A" group level players, and cannot afford buying international "A" group level players. In an "A" group level championship, it is not enough. I think a division-1 level hockey country's elite team did their best in a very strong "A" level championship. Let's hope they can join the league next year, too. I hope this was a great training for the division-1 WCH in April, played in Sapporo, Japan (against Ukraine, Japan, Estonia, Lithuania and Croatia).

Sorry if I was boring. :)

Euro Ice Hockey Challenge Results

Tilburg, Netherlands

Hungary came without their best players (Szuper, Vas J., Vas M., Szélig, Ladányi, Palkovics, Ocskay) in order to test the 3rd and 4th line, and some new young players. The results so far are not bad.

Ukraine-Hungary 6-2 (okay against an A group level team)
Netherlands-Croatia 1-0 (surprisingly narrow win)

Ukraine-Croatia 8-0 (easy as expected)
Netherlands-Hungary 0-3 (good away win for Hungary with this not-its-best squad)

A legendary record is broken: Krisztina Egerszegi (five times olympic, two times world, nine times European champion) made an incredible world record in women's 200 backstroke swimming with her unique beautiful swimming technique in 1991 (2:06.62). Now it's over after 17 years - one of the new era's dope b i t c h, Kirsty Coventry beated it (2:06.39). :(

Don't worry, if she's too doped, it will be found out at some point, and the record will be erased. Like Marion Jones' records.

Only big doper who's cover has never been blown is Lance Armstrong. And I'msure he will never admit anything.
Title: Re: Sports
Post by: CTG on February 17, 2008, 10:20:44 PM
It has to be mentioned that:

1, rules changed since 1991, swimmers are allowed to make more movements under the water after turning ---> big advantage, at least a few tenth seconds/turn

2, there were no hyper-streamlined swimsuites in 1991 ---> 1-2 second avantage

3, Dopes, muscles vs swimming style. Egerszegi was world famous for her unique swimming technique (very harmonic moves, no struggling) and wasn't really muscular. Now check the current champions, making half of their training in a gym and not in the water...

Egerszegi used to win her races with a HUGE gap. I guess with the same rules and swimsuites she would make an easy 2:03.

Damn, that was very depressing  :( It's scary how it seems spetacular leg fractures became more common in world-class footbal in those last three or so years - Cissé twice, Alan Smith, to a lesser extent Totti and now Eduardo... If anything, at least those recent cases seem to indicate prognostics are not necessarily "fatal" with current medicine advances - and BTW, latest estimates from Arsenal about Eduardo are ~9 months time for full recovery.

The danish teams also appear to suck this year. It's a good thing I don't care. I only care about AGF, my local football team. A team of Stunts fame because we spent part of a memorable evening of WSM 2005 by their stadium.
After a problematic start of the season, we finally got things going at the end of the autumn with 7 points in the last 4 matches. The standings are as follows:

1 AaB                               18 11 3 4 36-27 36
2 FC København                 18 9 7 2 23-11 34
3 AC Horsens                     18 8 6 4 27-24 30
4 FC Midtjylland                  18 8 5 5 26-22 29
5 OB                                 18 6 10 2 27-15 28
6 Randers FC                      18 7 5 6 25-15 26
7 FC Nordsjælland                18 6 7 5 28-25 25
8 Esbjerg fB                        18 6 4 8 35-33 22
9 Brøndby IF                       18 5 6 7 23-26 21
10 AGF                              18 5 3 10 20-28 18
---------------------------------
11 Viborg                           18 4 2 12 15-36 14
12 Lyngby                          18 2 4 12 18-41 10


Things are looking interesting in the top, with Horsens a huge surprise at 3rd place, and Brøndby a big disappointment at 9th place.

Pittsburgh-Philadelphia 4-2
Pittsburgh ensured its Atlantic division title, and still in chase for Eastern conference title. Will start the playoffs from 1st or 2nd position.
Philadelphia ensured its playoff berth. Will start the playoffs from 6th, 7th or 8th position.

Remaining games from the season for these teams:
Philadelphia-Pittsburgh

Possible conference quarterfinal opponents for them:
Pittsburgh: Boston, Ottawa, Philadelphia
Philadelphia: Pittsburgh, Montréal, Washington, Carolina.

Division-1 Ice Hockey WCH will get its start soon. After a season in the Austrian league for Volán, after building some good young players in the team, after knowing that János Vas (Iowa Stars, AHL) can come this year, after our players playing in the French league (Márton Vas, Balázs Ladányi, Viktor Szélig) finished a great season, after knowing that the Palkovics-Ocskay star pairing is in great form, after knowing the Ukrainian team are not as strong as last year's Slovenian team was, we have a small chance to promote to level "A". Japan and Estonia could be a tough opponent, too. Japan, 3rd seed behind Ukraine and Hungary, will be playing on home ice. Lithuania and Croatia should not mean a serious threat to our national team.

First match, 13th April in Sapporo: HUN-EST

Pittsburgh (2nd)-Ottawa (7th) 4-0, 5-3, PIT leads 2-0
Washington (3rd)-Philadelphia (6th) 5-4, 0-2, series tied at 1-1

Detroit (1st)-Nashville (8th) 3-1, 4-2, DET leads 2-0
San José (2nd)-Calgary (7th) 2-3, 2-0, 3-4, CGY leads 2-1
Minnesota (3rd)-Colorado (6th) 2-3, 3-2, series tied at 1-1
Anaheim (4th)-Dallas (5th) 0-4, 2-5, DAL leads 2-0

Division I WCH

Group A: Austria (1st seed, relegated from elite division, host), Poland (2nd), Kazakhstan (3rd), Great Britain (4th), Netherlands (5th), South Korea (6th, promoted from Division II)

Group B: Ukraine (1st seed, relegated from elite division), Hungary (2nd), Japan (3rd, host), Estonia (4th), Lithuania (5th), Croatia (6th, promoted from Division II)

3 points for victory, 2 points for victory in overtime/shootout, 1 point for loss in overtime/shootout, 0 point for a loss.

INNSBRUCK ARENA

NED-KAZ 3-6
GBR-POL 1-1, Poland wins in penalty shootout
KOR-AUT 0-8

POL-NED 6-4
KAZ-KOR 3-0 after 2 periods
AUT-GBR 20:30 CET

Day 3 (Wednesday): KOR-GBR, POL-KAZ, AUT-NED

SAPPORO ARENA

CRO-UKR 0-4
EST-HUN 3-5 (1-2, 2-1, 0-2, Hungarian goals by: Kovács 2, Ladányi, Vas M., Fekete)
LTU-JPN 0-5

UKR-EST 3-1
HUN-LTU 6-0 (2-0, 2-0, 2-0, Hungarian goals by: Ocskay 2, Vas M., Palkovics, Kovács, Ladányi)
JPN-CRO 3-0

Day 3 (Wednesday): CRO-EST, UKR-LTU, HUN-JPN (the winner will probably fight for promotion on Saturday against the Ukrainians; Hungary is the better team but it's always hard to play against the fast skating Japanese - and they are playing at home... I can't, I won't and I don't even dare to predict the outcome of that decisive match)
Title: Re: Sports

Hungary-Japan 4-2 (lucky circumstances, but we won :) )
Hungary-Croatia 3-0

Standings:

1 Hungary 12/4
2 Ukraine 11/4
3 Japan 7/4
4 Lithuania 3/4
5 Croatia 2/4
6 Estonia 1/4

The situation is like in the 2002 Division I WCH, we will play the final and decisive battle for promotion. That year we lost 2-6 to Denmark. This year there was no dominant team in this group, I think we have more chance now. Hungarian ice hockey team have never played in Pool A since the early years of ice hockey (when there were only a few countries playing this great game).

NHL news:

Pittsburgh Penguins swept Ottawa Senators out of the Stanley Cup playoffs, 4-0 win of series.

For the Danish, the opponents are: Russia, Czech Republic, Italy in the WCH group this year. If you can beat Italy (I think you have a fair chance to do this), you avoid playing in the relegation playoff (where 2 out of 4 teams get relegated).

Btw I think this year France and Italy will get relegated. (Promoted: Hungary and probably Austria).
