I don't know for certain but I can guess....
Paul Van Rietvelde
(2 more players, one singles at least, and one additional doubles, TBD after National Championships)

The nomination list should already have been sent. Seems most countries take only 2 singles players for each event ... I read Merilees is off somewhere to Canada(?). Oh wait I think that was Briggs actually .

I can pretty much already tell you which males are going, it will be....
MS: Gordan Hoggan, Kieran Merrilees
MD: Angus Gilmour/Martin Campbell. I can't tell for the others if sponsorship comes into play, that's why for MS I have put Kieran Merilees ahead of Calum Menzies as there is a conflict of sponsors.
I don't know why Andrew Bowmans name is there as he is far below the other MD and XD players. Neill/Turnbull had a falling out with BS a few years back over funding, so I don't think they will go.... Hockey/Leith I don't think have represented Scotland abroad before (apart from Euro Club Championships) and there is also conflicting sponsorship issues for them as well. strange choices, but I dont think there is any other options, for MD.

So for the last year the 4 have been on their own financially and the federation still harbours any hope they will help out for this event without any (clearly) visible representation of their sponsors??
Apparently the legal fees for the ongoing lawsuit had taken it's toll on last year's budget as well ironically, since financial trouble is what pretty much left them with no choice but to sign the agreement with Yonex in the first place.

Some of the Draw and analysis
France, Spain, Scotland, Slovakia
France: Have strong MS players, Brice, Mathieu and Simon are all strong players. France have the strongest MS line up in this group. But in my opinion they are weak in WS, WD, and XD, and they have decent MD players
Spain: Again, have a strong MS player in Pablo Abian, they have a young talent in WS, who will give the others in the group a tough test, and again they have some ok WD and XD players.
Scotland: They have ok MS players, but they are strongest in XD, WS and WD, IMO they hve the strongest WS, WD and XD players in this group. Although they suffer in MD department.
Slovakia: They will most likely finish bottom of this group, I am not familiar with many of their players, but AFAIK their squad is not as strong as the others in the group.
Predictions for group 6:
Scotland vs France 3-2 (WD, XD and WS will win it for Scotland)
France vs Spain 4-1 (Spain will take WS, but France will be too strong overall)
Slovakia vs Spain 0-5 (Spain are too strong here)
Slovakia vs Scotland 0-5 (Scotland, like Spain will be too good here)
Spain vs Scotland 2-3 (difficult one to pick, Marin might beat Susan, but I think Scotland again too strong)
France vs Slovakia 5-0 (France to strong again)

EURO TEAM CHAMPS – Dutch beheaded
Only a year too late . The very same issue already played a year ago at the Men's and Women's European Team Championship in Poland, in that case costing a spot at the TUC. Since Sudirman Cup doesn't have those qualification issues, it doesn't have as direct an impact ...

The only winners out of this situation are the four players that have been brought in to replace the "outcasts"
Btw, Pang and Palayama are getting on a bit (no offence) who is going to replace them ? (or are you going to have Ruud Bosch and Koen Ridder playing all three events)
02-03-2011, 05:17 PM #17
Koen Ridder is/was still one of the best MS player's, could be an option for this event (not sure if he will play MS in nationals this weekend). The two best prospects have chosen their study over the sport. Of the two entered here Rune is the same generation as the "oldies" you mentioned so that leaves Saber Afif untill the current youth prospects have caught up. A bleak prospect, will be wait and see how the current U19 (surprise) champ develops.
As far as the 8 groups, the favorites are clear, the group 6 is the closest thing to a group of death . Which means a sweet QF: NED v RUS .
Yeah this makes sense
Group 1 #1 - Group 8 #1
Group 3 #1 - Group 7 #1
Group 5 #1 - Group 4 #1
Group 6 #1 - Group 2 #1
A normal 3 vs 6 would have meant ENG v SCO QF ...
