    This whole handball business of players signing future contracts just seems odd to me. Vezsprem has made 4 future signings today.

    Yeah, I was going to say that, what a strange way to announce future signings when players still have contracts with their current clubs for another season. Is this customary in club handball?

    Anyways, Fabregas is one of the best, if not the best pivot or whatever position you call that in handball, as far as I know. Also his leadership qualities will be missed. He will be hard to be replaced and I hope we will start looking soon.

    We already have Luis Frade who was the best pivot in U19 World championship a few years ago. He missed most of this season with a torn ACL but hopefully he can come back and reach his potential. I'm sure we'll also sign someone over the next year to replace Fabregas though.

    Yeah, those future signings are quite common although AFAIK not as much as being officially confirmed by clubs but more of players announcing to leave current club when contract expires and/or more or less reliable media reports where they'll sign next year.

    It's not like in football where players can't negotiate with other clubs until they have 6 months left on the contract (although I'm sure a lot of agents are still doing that).
