Germany NT 2019

    It should be kept in mind that CEV's list for the ECH was apparently not completely correct (e.g. missing Stigrot), so there might be mistakes in the new list too.

    The list looks pretty reasonable, but I really miss Gryka there. Assuming that Kästner won't be ready, one of Imoudu/Kemmsies/Möllers will be the backup setter.

    Looks like the idea of Brinker returning has not turned out to become true...

    I haven't lost hope yet given that the list published by CEV can sometimes be quite riddled with errors anyway lol

    Really think Magda is a solid back-up setter since I haven't got lots of chances to see how Kemmsies is doing in the Swiss league and Moellers is like......simply way too average while Imoudu is not any better, not to mention that she's been benched the most of time , literally almost always, in the ongoing season.

  • BTW, looks like it takes ages for DVV to publish the official list for OQT (even a long list of 20 players!) whereas everything has been so clear when it comes to the male counterpart list (yep I know exactly why but the contrast is just......:what:)

    I also wonder when would Lippmann be back and get reunited with the NT.....Nothing official yet....:wavy:

    Lena Möllers as backup setter. Seriously? She's even lost her starting spot in Vilsbiburg to 19 year old Corinna Glaab. ANYBODY would have been a better choice than Möllers :gone:


    Some extra training on high level for Ambrosius, Felix must really see something in her. There is no way she'll make the final roster, so unless anybody gets injured I assume the fight for the last spot in the final roster will be between Barber, Stigrot and Vanjak.

  • According to local newspaper, Lippmann will show up at the second semifinal of the Chinese league, on Dem.28th, which means she would basically miss the preparation early on and go straight into the warming up matches :white:

    Not a big fan of her playing in Asia in the first place:aww:Suffice it to say that's gonna jeopardize the entire preparation cuz she's sort of the core of the team:wavy:

  • Yeah well but OTOH she's in full "match mode" due to playing in China, there is not going to be much preparation in NT training anyway in such short time...

    additionally I am also worried about the ¨jet lag¨ stuff:aww: But yeah inasmuch as the collaboration between hanke and her just really got the vibes and should be skillful, the esscential would be to keep working on the system, settle down as a team, get things right and just try to win the next game.
