    Still, great skate and good for him. At least he doesn't get into S&M like Amodio. Uh, I mean Stand & Model.

    LOL LOL Stand and Model ... don't forget Sequins and Mascara, too! Amodio is always pushing the music barrier with 'vocals'. I don't understand why he's not penalized for music. He's quite the 'showman.'

    I don't get why people suddenly feel the need to say that Chan and Takahashi need to watch out now. As if Takahashi, especially needed more reminding that he needs to be perfect when he lost japanese Nationals to Hanyu, a guy who most people here already forgot or what? I feel that figure skating is a sport where you need to focus on your own self, your own performance and your own form. What others might do or not do is out of your hands! You might skate the skate of your life and finish off podium, you might make mistakes and still win the gold. It's all so unpredictable. But I think it is ridiculous to say that Chan or Takahashi need to be afraid now, or something. Worlds is another story, another day.

    Woohoo! Yay, for Javi! I'm so, so thrilled for him...

    I wish Brian could have had a bronze, but that was not to be. And while I'm not a fan, it was nice for Brezina to get a medal finally, and not only be the eternal number four, which must be terribly aggravating...

    And additionally, there was the GPF already (and Javi's win at SC over Patrick). Even if some people just realized now that Javi is a medal thread for worlds, I'm pretty sure Patrick and Daisuke knew that already. And between the top 4 we arguably have now (Top 5, if Kozuka wasn't injured), it's going to be really exciting to see who will make the podium at worlds

    That's standard behaviour for skating fans on online boards. Now Chan and Takahashi need to look out, next time Javi bombs everyone will say he's an headcase and not so dangerous after all, lather, rinse and repeat
    IMO, Javier's win just strengthens the fact that the World title is up for grabs.

    Yep, Menshov should go to Worlds. Additionally to being able to score well, he can also count how many combos he's done. :P I think they still might send Kovtun though.. dunno.

    Let's talk about Javi's brilliant skating and not conspiracy and bribary... as some of us see Russians pollitics in SLC and others see 5,6 for Artisitic impression for Slutskaya((((...
    Javi - cool!
    Amodio, Brezina, Joubert - nice.
    Max - thx for the clean elements! Good job, but no movement((( no physical strength obviously.

    But anyway I feel sad that there's nothing to watch in men's Euros... very poor performances in comparison with worlds... Javi and that's it. Hope those time when Europe dominated men's skating will come back. In russia eg we're nowhere near making rivalry

    It was mostly Russia which dominated skating not the rest of Europe.

    well Menshov, Kovtun, Voronov can equally implode
    but Menshov has the most stable senior season amongst the three and gets a bit higher pcs
    Voronov's pcs is a joke and when he loses his tes, you can see how low he can score at around 190+
