PostSubject: Nobunari is going to work with Morozov   Sat Apr 26, 2008 7:11 am

A new article about Nobu:
http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20080426-00000022-yom-spo
(He looks so thin on that photo...)

It says he will work with Morosov in USA this season. The article doesn't say whether he will be his main coach or assistant coach.
A long time ago I said on FSU that it would be good if Nobu worked with Morosov on his steps and CoP-smartness, so it feels funny for me to see it actually happening.
Also, Nobu is scheduled to perform at Festa On Ice in Korea.

Meanwhile, Daisuke is in a bit of a slump and is considering a coaching change. It would be fun if he worked with Barkell. Then they couch exchange coaches again. Laughing

Wow, Morozov! I hope he will help Nobu with his step sequences and confidence. Working with him certainly helped Shizuka, Miki and Daisuke! sunny

Ooops, I mentioned the photo, but I linked the older article with no photo. Embarassed Here it is:

http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20080426-00000027-mai-spo

This one says that Dai-chan will stay with Morosov after all, and he and Nobu will train together. Sounds like fun. Inskate posted this on GS, I hope you don't mind linking! They look so cute. Wub

Daisuke also mentioned Nobunari in his gradution speech at KanDai, which is up on YT:

More news...

http://www.chunichi.co.jp/chuspo/article/sports/news/CK2008042702006920.html
http://www.nikkansports.com/sports/news/p-sp-tp0-20080427-353053.html
http://hochi.yomiuri.co.jp/sports/winter/news/20080427-OHT1T00029.htm

Some of these newspapers tend to post unreliable and sensationalist material, so the news should be taken with a grain of salt. But it looks like JSF Chairman Ito has not informed Daisuke's managers, who were very surprised with this news. They feel that having two rivals work together might not be practical. Meanwhile, Ito is being vague as usual and says that it is not decided yet whether Takahashi will continue working with Morosov.
I wonder why he did not inform Daisuke's managers about the possible coaching change. But perhaps considering other people's feelings, or at least conforming to the rules of basic courtesy, is not something he finds necessary. Disappointed

ETA: Morosov praised Nobunari's skating ("he's a wonderful skater") in TV news report, accoriding to a fan's blog post. I haven't actually seen the news, though.

Thank you for the sumary. How weird, but unsurprising. Ito never seemed to care about anything but Money Money Money , so why he should start now? Disappointed

I'll say, lets just ignore him and support the skaters! Good luck, Nobu and Dai-chan! Good luck!

ETA: Can I quote you on GS? Who, me?

Two more articles:

http://www.artonice.it/?q=it/node/5555
(in Italian)

http://sankei.jp.msn.com/sports/other/080428/oth0804281837005-n1.htm
(In Japanese)

Maybe I'll translate them one I get back home (and get somebody to translate the Italian one Smile ).

The second one says that it was Morosov who suggested a few times that Nobu should train with him and Nobu finally decided it was a good idea.
That's good to hear. I remember that some time ago also Alexei Yagudin said that if he had enough time to become a coach, he would like to work with Mao and Nobu.

I think that it's unusual for the coach to seek out a skater, isn't it..? IIRC, all Morozov's recent Japanese pupils were either recommended to him by JSF (Miki) or asked him to coach them (Shizuka, Daisuke). Smile

I think the only recent case when it was the coach that suggested working together was Tarasova asking Mao...

Too bad that Daisuke decided to switch coaches after all. But maybe it's for the best... If he can find a coach just for himself, as he said in the interview, maybe he would be able stay in Japan more and would not be forced to spend so much time away from his family. Nobu, on the other hand, could use some staying away from the intrusive press.

Frim Daisuke Fan Forum:

Quote :
Many of you may already know, I decided to part from Nicolai Morozov who had coached me for three years.
I got lots of kind messages from you caring about me, but TAKAHASHI is ALRIGHT!!
(...)
This time, I made the decision by myself. And I have no regret!! I just want to go forward!!
I appreciate Mr.Morozov because he taught me many things and gave me chances to experience a lot for these three years!!
Without him, I could not raise myself up to here.
(...)
Even now I still respect him and like him so much!!
(...)
From now on, Nobunari will take lessons from Nikolai, and will come back next season. He will be stronger through a hard
work with Mr.Morozov, so I am looking forward to competing for a medal with him!! I will do my best so that I would not be
beaten by him!!

Thumbs up!

Laughing Ha ha, New York is too big Whirly

If you were in NY a few days later later, you could just wait at the airport, especially when there are flights to Korea scheduled... Because Nobu will probably fly to Korea soon to participate in FoI Woot!

A lot of things makes sense now. Boy, is Nikolai pissed off at Ihara! ROTFLMAO

Not that I'm surprised. It looks like not only did the manager tried to interfere with the coaching process and sabotaged Daisuke's chances at Worlds, but also tried to push all the blame on Nikolai's and Nobunari's shoulders. Judging from this quote:

Quote :
"I explained everything to Oda about why I chose to coach him and Takahashi left, and he said he understood. I'm relieved and have enjoyed working with him so far," Morozov noted.

when Nobunari decided to switch to Morozov, he thought that Daisuke already is not working with him anymore... It must have been a huge shock when he learned that their relationship was not officially dissolved. He sounded really downcast and guilty about this in his blog entry. Sad

I wonder if what happened was that Nikolai warned Ihara at Worlds that if he doesn't back off, he will be forced to stop working with Daisuke and take on another student, and Ihara didn't even take this seriously (because it's certainly a huge sacrifice to give up such a successful pupil as Daisuke).

It's too bad that Gallagher choose to write the article in such a sensationalist tone. It looked to me that all the people involved have already moved on with their life, so IMHO there is no need to scratch the already healed wounds open. I think a calm article would be preferable. It would be enough to simply tell that Nikolai had trouble cooperating with Ihara to the point that it reflected negatively on Daisuke's performance, and because of that he decided to resolve the relationship and take on another student.

I think that Daisuke can do well no matter what coach he is working with... He already learned a lot from Morozov and perhaps it will be the best for him to try something new. Good luck!
Meanwhile, Nobu can use help in two areas that Morozov is famous to be great in - footwork sequences and mental strenght, so I think they are a good match. Good luck!

Quote :
ODA is #28 on the ISU Ranking list, and since he did not compete last season, he is not on the SB list. Therefore, he is guaranteed 0 assignments and since he isn't on the SB list, he can receive no GP invitations. The only GP assignment for which he is eligible is a host pick (NHK). That is the only event he will be able to do.

is it true?!?!

I hope not! Sad, Lonely

Ito said JSF will try to make him get 2 assigments Money ... NHK for sure, but I hope that some other federation will invite him as well! He has no SB, but his PB is better than Lambiel's, Weir's or Joubert's... I hope for 2 invites! Worship Worship Worship

I've been wondering about this since yesterday... How the official rules could be bent, that is. study Twisted Evil

I wonder if JSF could sent Nobu as a reserve. study

For example, if my memory serves me well, last season Mai was invited to one GP (Skate America), but because Aki Sawada got sick, JSF invited Mai to NHK (sadly she got sick and withdrew after SP Sad ).

So I wonder if one of the Japanese skaterboys (Nanri, Mura, Nakaniwa) will not suddenly catch some cold Snow just before his GP event (and will be sent to some B-list international assigment as a consolation). JSF cares about placements Money , and let's face it, as much as I love the Japanese skaterboys' skating, the only ones with a chance to make GPF are Dai, Nobu, and maybe Takahiko (on a very good day and with the help of other skaters).
