I was thrilled to see this news. I've become a fan over the last few years and I really did miss their presence in Moscow. I do agree that they should keep their free dance for next season. We saw its potential at Euros and I think it really can become something special.

Now I just want to hear the same news from Sinead and John...

The decision to stop between euros and worlds was silly, esp when u then realise Shibs finished 3rd and Weaver 5th. Not taking anythin away from either team, they both skated beautifully but F/S could have taken both of them, esp with extra 5weeks of training...

I was thinking the same thing - a lost opportunity. :( They must be kicking themselves!

Their free dance was the most beautiful program of the year IMO. It would have made the competition so much richer.

I think after seeing the Worlds field, they might have realized they could easily get a bronze again at their best.. esp. with the retirement of Sinead and John

I am very pleased for them. It would be nice for them to retire on their own terms, not forced out by injury. So good on them for continuing.

Yep. They must have been kicking themselves seeing the results. They would have been on the podium had they just stayed upright.

However, the Shibs and Russians are probably only going to keep getting better, so I don't know if this is going to work out for them. They don't have the height difference to allow Massi to chuck Faiella around his shoulders as well as some other teams.

I *hated* what Linichuk did to them though, especially this year, both in programs and packaging. They were brilliant in 2008 with Camerlengo and Krylova, so I hope they go back to that more flowing style.

I hope they do come back. I like their style, and I feel they add interest to dance.

This! :cheer2:

Icedancing needs Federica and Massimo at the moment. I hope they do well. I needed to hear something positive. :rollin:

You did not like "Manolete"? I thought it was an amazing program, which could have become legendary if it had been performed to its potential.

I also am both glad they reconsidered retiring, and worry that it will not be easy for them to stay competitive with the up-and-comers.
