2020 Olympic Games - qualification

  • It's so funny that almost all the faves looked to be in deep sh... uhm, trouble, at some point, but in the end they all made it through. :lol: TBH, the timing of these tournaments was very awkward and it's not surprising that very few teams managed to show their best game.


    Very stressful game for Serbia tonight, but that was expected, Poland is definitely a team on the rise and they were super pumped-up. Tijana :heart: When it mattered the most, she was there, and that's what great players do.


    Russia vs Korea was definitely the highlight of the competition for me, I never expected such a fun and hard fought match. And man, that must be such a heartbreak for the Koreans.


    I'm afraid Netherlands might be missing out on the Olympics this time. Hopefully they'll find their spark back, because what they showed in this tournament simply wasn't enough, and they'll need to do much better against Turkey and Poland in January.


    Should be a fascinating European QT, anyway. Also, Thailand vs Korea could be a real thriller.

  • I feel really bad for Poland, they played very well but at the end they screwed up and just couldn't make it🇮🇩❤️💪🏻

    Tbh I didn't know Poland could be such a good team(i never watched them) but this year they really surprised me and they become one of my fav teams. They just miss a good OH.

    Heck, if Bulgaria can bring the type of game they showed against USA then they won't be pushovers either. Could be quite exciting :box:

    I agree some players just need more experiance. There wiil be progress as more girls start playing in Italian league. Today Poland played v.good against WCh.

  • Despite our victory, honestly I somehow want RVF offers much more money to Lavarini and take him from Korea.

    As I heard the news that KVA elected Lavarini as a head coach of korean national team, I can't belive my eyes because KVA had always pick one who is released from professional team(because of bad results).


    Lavarini is really good coach as everyone knows and I see a lot of differences compared to the past. I hope we can keep him longer but I know it wouldn't happen😂😂

  • I don't know anything about who Poland has in the pipeline but I don't see them improving with who they have. They are good, some quite good, but what could any of them improve on? I suppose that super tall young girl could turn into a receiving machine.

    call me crazy, but if we had a chance to take him from Korea, even I would like to lose the game against Korea today. Because with Lavarini you can get the ticket for OGs in every continental qualification. + big achievements in OGs.

    In polish league we have a lot of good players but our coach doesn’t like to change the roster, he wants to make a real team by playing whole time the same players :win:


    Stysiak will play in Italy but as OPP so she won’t practice reception, Grajber won’t be better, we have one girl - Bączyńska who is receiving almost the same but she is taller (189 when Grajber is 180) but she was not called for NT and a lot of fans was very angry with it. Górecka (19 y.o) will play in Novara and she is a very promising option :teach:


    Mędrzyk was playing fantastic this tournament she is our best OH, but the second one on the same level is needed if we want to play better.

  • The problem for Poland is they cant have many scoring options without Stysiak but Medrzyk cant handle 2 receiving system. Grajber can be a good receiver but Medrzyk and Grajber duo is a little bit weak. And they dont have a scoring middle as well.

    totally agree about MBs, Kąkolewska was amazing last season but now she is out of shape, but we also need the second one who can score a lot, there is one girl from our junior team - Weronika Centka who was playing amazing during Junior World Championships, I hope she will join the team in the next season ;)
