  • some team's roster will be more different than today. especially italy,probably lots of italian player wont be in the team roster in 2013, leo, gioli, piccinini, maybe cardullo, anzenello.... ı think grun wont play also in the german team...

  • yes, I agree and from my place ... only 130 km by car to final Halle !


    I don't think Halle, in Westfalen, is 130 km from Poland..:S

    Halle in german language means sportshall or gym. I guess, Mariusz is talking about berlin ^^

    Also Del Core and Costagrande... Leo in my opinion will stay. Maybe we can play with


    Leo-Ortolani (Signorile-Bechis/Ravetta-Angeloni)
    Arrighetti-Calloni (Guiggi-Garzaro-Crisanti)
    Bosetti-Barcellini (Okaka-Bosetti C-Saccomani-Olivotto)
    Merlo Carocci (Sirressi)

    It's possible, you just have to believe in yourself and really not care what other people say, because I've heard it all.
    If you let someone else dictate what you're going to do in life, then you won't get there.
