    If Perkova can duplicate her Russian Nats free, I think she'll take it. I'm not holding my breath for a totally clean free from anyone else, though if Kiira can skate clean in the long I think she'll be untouchable. I also don't find Kiira wooden, and I've never found Gede graceful - powerful, yes, but really not finished off at all.

    Yeah, that's really sad. But since Europeans are in Switzerland this season, I hope Sarah skates two clean programs and wins a medal! Go Sarah!

    why is her consistency in the FS this year so bad T.T
    I read about her having achilles tendon injury but she is also trying hard to get a lutz and go from 1 jump after the halfway point to 4.

    If Carolina is clean, no one will touch her. But I do think it's Kiira's turn to win, so if Carolina makes a few mistakes and Kiira skates well, I think Kiira will win. Bronze will probably be Leonova, Makarova, or Gede.

    I'm almost sure Carolina or Kira will win, but I was also sure that Miki would win GPF or be on the podium at least. And what happened? she was 5th

    So my opinion doesn't mean a lot...

    I think Leonova will win it all. Things seem to be coming together for her at the right time. I watched her FS at nationals and I was beyond impressed with her. Hopefully she'll be able to turn in a clean SP/FS at Euros.

    Kostner will win, imho.
    I think Leonova can medal but I don't see her National's performance as a trend, rather as a exception. She's been in poor form at international competition this season, and I don't see major improvements in her skating, sorry. I fancy her choreo in the lp, though
    Korpi is a clear medal favourite again, but she's much of a headcase to make any prediction
    I hope Sonia Lafuente gets into the top10

    I am really hoping Leonova can build on her amazing Nationals FS and deliver similarly strong performances at Euros to win the Gold.

    Watching Kostner win again, with three triples (if that) and not even attempting flip and lutz would be absolutely soul-destroying.

    She'll get gigantic components and GOEs no matter what, so I guess she's a podium lock.

    Korpi did improve somewhat, but I can't stand her. High PCS are also guaranteed for her though and she's been reasonably consistent this season.

    Kostner and Korpi on the podium in any order are a pretty sure bet.

    As for the third skater to get on it, hopefully it's Leonova. If she bombs, it would be amazing (but highly unlikely) to see Helgesson deliver to strong skates and grab Bronze.

    Or maybe Vannut, who has been in tremendous form all season. She's not going to get the PCS but she's been consistently landing all the triples in competition as well as the 3lutz/3loop combination in practices and warm-ups. If she lands most of her jumps, she might end up on the podium.

    I wouldn't count Sarah off. She is a fighter. She has been training hard in spite of her injuries. I really hope she delivers and

    go Sarah!

    That would be . I don't think a Belgian lady has ever medalled at Euro's.
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    If Leonova won and Vannut medalled, I'd pee myself and roll in it, out of sheer uncontrollable joy!

    She totally surprised me with her FS at nats! fantastic! One of the most interesting choreographies this season.

    I can't help comparing her FS with Mirai's SP (both use music from The Witches of Eastwick) and I have to say I prefer Alena's program so far, even though Mirai is one of my favs.

    Just another Saturday night for me....

    But all aboard the Leonova bandwagon! Her LP is so well choreographed and she performed it so well at nationals. Ultimately I'm really just hoping she skates solidly, continues to build confidence, and medals at Euros. I want her to peak at Worlds!

    I know they won;t get the PCS but I'm freaking hoping that one of Vannut or Lafuente will go clean and place to 6. New blood.

    I'd be THRILLED if Meier came back, KICKED ASS and won!

    From the poll list, Kostner or Korpi.

    Leonova's skating is as elegant and stylish as her dresses.

    The final group of 6 will probably consist of Kostner, Korpi, Leonova, Makarova, Helgesson and Gedevanishvili.

    I wouldn't count out Marchei (I hope she could end top 5) and Hecken...
