    you must have missed my next post..."not saying they would all place top 10, definitely not, but they do have the 2nd deepest ladies field, Russia's is too inconsistent, and not all age eligible."

    I disagree with this. They didn't put it down when it counted. I/M got too cocky, I remember when at the beginning of the season they were talking like they want to defeat the world champions, now they finish 5th in Russia???

    Are you sure they said that? I mean at the beginning of the season they were practicaly comming from nowhere since they didn't make the olympic/world team in 2009. Plus, she always looked happy with their scores, not making faces even though they were underscored on some occasions. Not to mention at Skate Canada she was simply adorable in the interviews, to me they were always humble and composed. And I do believe they would be more reliable for euros that G/E who only had one international experience.

    Yes, but actually it was a joke, they are funny guys
    I don't know, I simply love G/E and I would be happy to see them at Euros, but I have to admit that I/M are more experienced and maybe deserve it more, they just had bad luck at Nationals... Anyway, it's so hard to choose! I hope Russian FS Federation will make the right choice

    Ok, then! Thanks! I found it hard to picture them being so infatuated
    I've got another question!(sorry if I'm being annoying): do you know if they are going to announce the world team too? I figured it would be better if they send directly Tatiana and Max, and the best 2 teams at euros, out of 3, will qualify for worlds. In this way, they can give a chance to either I/M or G/E to actually qualify for worlds

    They did. They were talking after Skate Canada that they had the judges basically trying to get them behind the canadians, and they were speaking like they had been underscored.
    To me, as the season progressed, they skated less well. Their best skate was the first and then could not sustain the same form and in my opinion they are too inconsistent. I don't see G/E less competitive. And plus they earned it. This is a sport and what should matter is actual form and performance and not past.

    FS Federation will announce the Euros team after 29th of January and Worlds team will be announced after Euros as usual I guess

    I'm so curious to know what was Tatiana Tarasova saying about V/T! She sounded so excited

    Seems that Tatiana and Maxim were born to skate together

    She was impressed and even gave them a standing ovation, said this team is able to win Worlds and Olympics. She was happy for them and their coaches, said many good things about them all as well as about G/E and their coaches

    Lucky Star you are my hero! thanks a lot. I did liked better G/E on the second view, I think I can finally understand why everybody is crazy about them. They need to work on the 3Twist, but other then that, their technical elements are already very good. They improved so much since Cup of Russia, it's almost unreal how she made the transition from singles to pairs. And what's more important, they delivered just after V/T skated and that says many things about their nerves! In the end, I if they get sent to euros instead of I/M, I won't complain since I'm curious how much improvement will be made by then
