    I hope so :)


    Argentina? They are very high, too high if we consider their abilities. On the other hand they were surprisingly good in WC ( I see big progress comparing their play in last WL), and that's because they jumped up in the rankings.

  • I would say the second in Europe is Russia after Spain but if u say soo 8)


    (this ranking is WORLD) if they made only for Europe (without world competions) probably Serbia would be higher cause they were 3rd in EC)

    Serbians are so lucky, always in the easiest groups and streams. At Euro 2007 Russia, Bulgaria, Poland, Italy, even Finland were in one and the same stream, how can it be, if serbia was in this stream, they probably would have made an awful performance, just like poland did at Euro 2007.


    If you take out Brazil and USA, Bulgaria is second in Europe.

    How can you say that ?
    Spain and Serbia finished 1st and 3rd, when Russia and Finland were 2nd and 4th.


    Looking by the way Poland and Bulgaria played during ECH, I think no one can tell that they made their pool very hard for their opponents !

    Haha, you are absolutely wrong. Especially in the match Russia- Bulgaria the referee helped the russians many times in the end of the first set when Buglaria was leading 20:23 and was going to win the set, Milushev made block which was IN and the refferee said it was out. :what: You can check this, these are facts. If it was 1:0 for us noone can predict the result. And in the match against Poland was the same, althought poland played bad. Against Spain - I will not comment, how many "gifts" for the russians. And Finland showed much better playing and style than Serbia, they've lost the bronze because the match with spain was so difficult and the finies could win, because they were leading but they've failed. Russia blew Serbia away 3:0 at the semi-final.

    I know they said Del Core had some health problems(?) so she wasn't there and there was the thing about Aguero's mom. But why didn't Italy play so well? And why wasn't Sara Anzanello in Beijing?
    Hehe, I was screaming at the TV during the Brazil vs. Italy game. Actually, I was cheering for Italy (I wanted them to put up a fight) but I was expecting Brazil to win. 8)
