  • With coach like Przybylski, Poland will be even lower in the next ranking. Our best players has forgot how to play handball since he has been the coach. We are missing 3rd big competition in a row and the world is running away. In 2007-2008 Poland managed to beat Spain twice. Since that time Spain took the medal in ECH and 4th place in WCH and Poland has been playing nothing. Sad but true :(
    Thanks God, we have male team, which is far better :thumbup:

    Poland has new Coach from Denmark- Kim Rasmussen. Senior Team played two friendly matches against No 12 in the World- China. Results: Poland-China 29-17 and 30-21. New Coach is doing great job with our Team. Maybe this is a turning point in the history of Polish Women's handball. What do you think Konrad and Others?

    Yes, I was watching both of those matches and althoug we are talking only about friendlies - I'm full of hope. Our players play with faith, are focused on the game and really want to help the NT. We can alsoe see, that the atmosphere in this new team is absolutely great.
    Better times for Polish female handball may come soon.

  • What the sensation ! Germany, the 7th Team of the 2009 World Championships, was eliminated after the first round ! But I don't understand why because Holland 2pts ratio +, Ukraine 2pts ratio -10 and Germany 2pts ratio -9 and Germany out. Could Someone explain? I know that Team who won against second Team is higher but here NED beat UKR and lost against GER, UKR beat GER and GER beat NED and lost against UKR.

  • Bartek, what do you think about our chance against The Netherlands! Actually I don't watch handball a lot but I try to watch some NT matches! And The Dutch users! Can you inform us about Dutch NT? :drink:

    Holland is the No 8 in Europe. But I think that Turkey has the chance to beat Them.

  • Yes, The Netherlands are favorites against Turkey. But Turkey has made nice progress last years. I would say chances are like this: 65-35 for The Netherlands.
