THW KIEL PHILOSOPHY: Sell shooters, buy wings….

THW Kiel’s coach Alfred Gislasson was angry in the last part of the clash in Arena Zagreb, where his team convincingly lost their feet in the last quarter of the match. With 11:2 series, domestic team made crucial turnover from 18:20 to amazing 29:22. However, Gislasson complained to the refferes couple, and was close to come into “face to face” moment after Zlatko Horvat was sent off due brutal foul on Renne Toft Hansen.

However, the reason of bad start of European season, Icelander, has to find in his own plans and club’s politics. It is unacceptable that team like Kiel, who are always looking for the trophies, make such a poor summer transfer job.

Icelander didn’t find the place for Danish playmaker Rasmus Lauge, even he was one of the biggest potential of European handball in moment when he signed contract with German best team. “Zebras” let him to go to SG Flensburg, but before him, Aron Palmarsson. The 25 years-old Icelander was a “kid of the club”, he grew up on Baltic coast and it is totally annoying that his golden years in upcoming seasons will spend somewhere else. He had to be one of the foundation of the club next generation together with Domagoj Duvnjak.

The last blow for the fans was departure of Filip Jicha. The Zebras captain was the last chance for them to stay among the teams with the highest ambitions this season, but Kiel let him go…

And what 10.285 season ticket holders in Sparkassen Arena got? Christian Dissinger is maybe potential for the future, but the golden junior from generation 1990 didn’t have five “strong” matches in his career. Unfortunately, because all the troubles with his body. Erlend Mamelund still only bringing towels over his neck, without any influence to the game.

Apart of this, THW signed the fourth left wing yesterday, Dragos Oprea. They had three, Dahmke (world class material), injured Klein and 39-years old Torsten Jansen as newcomer!?

Too many strange decision has to be payed on the court…

And still, THW Kiel budget is the second in the handball world…
