The World League already seems not so prestigious as few years ago. But if this system comes to life... :(

 

You are right, the last few years seem very odd. Ever since they changed the group format of the 2 home and 2 away games against your opponents, it feels like a fast clusterfuck in the summer... It doesn't help also, that the teams often use they reserves in the matches now, because there are 3 matches for 3 days for 3 weeks on top of the travel. Awful structure..

 

But on the other hand, there is the moaning of the clubs and/or players that the season is too long and they can't play 12 months. Because with the good old format you needed 6/7 weeks for the regular season and the 1-2 weeks for the finals and the League was prolonged for 2 months..

We are a small country with no money, i think it is fairly obvious why we are not included. :d :( Same could be said for Slovenia.

Finland's placement is more surprising imo

And... we are out :(

Special thanks to Dawid Konarski (and Kurek in third set) for ruining any last hopes we had.

I am sorry for our young players which gave their best efforts during this tournamenr  , but our so called "star players" seemed to be scared of every.single.opponent they faced :(

 

The only good game was against Brazil (the first game). Italy? No offence, but almost everyone beat them this year. Iran? We won only one game, when their team was without any form

 

I have nothing against de Georgi, but i am really angry at our team - some of them basically blaimed Antiga for all their fails last 2 seasons and now they continue the same mistakes... can't wait till I inevitably hear De Georgi is too weak of a coach for our guys...
