Bergische Volleys

Trainer: Isacsson (SWE, Linköping/SWE)
Setters: Möller (GER/AUS, Södertelge/SWE), J. Tille (VCO Berlin)
Opposites: Nibbrig, Gosmann
Middles: Benz (USA, Irvine/USA), Klingner, Pietzonka
Outsides: Specht (BRA, Szolnok/HUN), Lipscombe (AUS, Luzern/SUI), Gies, <gap>
Liberos: Bene (HUN, Szolnok/HUN)

Rumors were not bad:
New trainer with background (some Belgian/Netherlands guy ?) The Swedish national coach can be said to have some background, yes. :thumbup:
Some players from USA, CAN, AUS ? See the roster and it's true ...

But compared to the others, this team will still have to fight hard to survive.

Also today United Volleys Rhein-Main (Frankfurt) announced Sebastian Schwarz (from Jastrzebski Wegiel, POL) as their new outside.
Together with Lincoln Williams (AUS) now this roster looks quite competitive.

A real good transfer. The people there obviously know what they are doing. They will have again a good and interesting roster. I don't think they can challenge Friedrichshafen/Berlin but third place should be pretty realistic for them.
never mess with your setter......

This is an intersting transfer for the league. But don't get me wrong: If I had their money, I also would know what to do ...
Some clubs simply can't afford salaries in the upper 5 or lower 6 digit range per season. :white:

Rottenburg announced two transfers;
Paul Henning (middle) from VCO Berlin and
Idner "Idi" Faustino Martins (outside) from Jakarta Elctric (INA).

"Idi" is well known in Germany, but 39 meanwhile. Let's wait ...

Lüneburg announced Roy Ching (NZL, BU Bobcats/CAN) as their new outside.
They also claim, that their roster is complete now.
But nobod knows how it looks like (ok, except my guess ... but it's only a good guess).

Sure, money helps and i am convinced that you would know what to do but there are enough examples on Volleyball and other sports that there are countless possibilities to brainlessly sink money. I just have the feeling that United Volleys have found a good balance between investing in the roster, marketing and the general club development. I just hope this will pay out soon in increased attendances and further sponsors, apart from "Father Krick".

So they now have Tick, Trick and Track, Ray, Roy and Ryan. There would still be place for a Rory..... 8)

Yes, i think your guess on the roster is pretty much OK. Not sure about Paddy Kruse, but we will see. As it seems the guy for the internet is back from holiday so we might see a better flow of information in the coming weeks.....

Interesting move by Friedrichshafen. Their new OH will be the old MB. According to the club, norwegian player Andreas Takvam is already training for the OH position. He was the best MB of the league in the last season, so this truly comes as a little surprise.

That being said, he surely has the motorical skills and the athleticism for this move. But how he will deal with reception and defence still remains open. It will be interesting to watch....

Some news from Solingen (aka Bergische Volleys):

New players are:
Trainer: Johan Isacsson (SWE, Linköping/SWE)
Libero: Róbert Bene (HUN, Szolnok/HUN)
Outside: Iurgen Hummes Specht (BRA, Szolnok/HUN), Gerrard Lipscombe (AUS, Luzern/SUI)
Middle: Andrew Benz (USA, Irvine/USA)


Source.

If you see the other rosters, they are still the candidate number one for going down for me.
