totally expected and deserved, as said before tournament Trentino is european champion. by far best team in Europe. But now they need to conqueer italy again which will be harder cause they cannot play in domestic championship with full team like in CL. Congrats!

Amazing final, amazing Trentino, great Iraklis, but the Italians were simply superb in Prague! There was no way for Trentino to lose this title! The services of the Greeks were better than Trentino's, excluding Kaziyski from that number, Iraklis's reception also better than what the Italians showed, but the big difference came from the block and the setter Grbic! I am so sorry that Iraklis has lost all their three finals so far, they deserve to win the IECL, Kravarik deserved to lift the trophy at least once in his great career for this club! I do not admire the behaviour of their fans, especially yesterday when the story with the lasers happened, but the support they show to this team is incredible! Iraklis deserves its first historical trophy, I hope they can win it in the near future! On the other side, I am very happy about Kaziyski's MVP award, he did whatever he wanted during the last two days, supported by the outstanding Winiarski, Vissoto Neves and Riad, this team was simply unbeatable (in fact, they finished unbeaten :) )! The only thing I didn't like was the nomination of Butko for Best Setter... I don't know what the statistics says about it, no one can convince me that Grbic played less efficiently during the Final Four! He was the first reason which made Trentino champions! He IS the best setter of this year's IECL!

Simply awesome tournament to watch! From the first till the last points! That's why it's my favourite one ;) Maybe really the four best teams this season reached the final stage... but now I will have to wait for half a year until the next one starts :(

when a player...ehm...no, actually not a player, a MONSTER like Matey Kazyiski plays for your team...things are very easy...

last week Trento was loosing 10-14 in the tie-break in Italian Playoffs before 4 aces of this champion...

yesterday he closed the game with another 2 aces...

so finally congrats to trento...but without Kazyiski they would become a normal team. strong of course but not like they're now, almost unstoppable. :(

Congratulations for Trento :cup: It was a great final! Bravo to all Itas's players and coaches - they all did a great job and absolutely desereved the cup. But also congrats for Iraklis which excluding the first set were on a high level level. The way that the match ended (with the two aces) was increddible. Really great Kaziyski - the MVP:win:

So now we are looking forward to the next IECL edition 8)

Anyone can support a team that is winning - it takes no courage. But to
stand behind a team to defend a team when it is down and really needs
you, that takes a lot of courage.

What can I say? I was very sad about yesterday's result. I was in Prague and I can't describe my emotions after the final. But today I realise that this weekend we proved once more that we are among the best teams in Europe, and that makes me feel a little bit better.
I want to congratulate all of our players. Simon Tischer, Marcus Nilsson, Aleh Akhrem, Plamen Konstantinov, Andrej Kravarik, Nikos Smaragdis, Denison Conceicao, Giannis Charitonidis, Evgenios Gkortsaniouk, Freddy Brooks, Gerasimos Kanellos and Giorgos Koulieris.
Of course, congratulations to Trentino. They played very well.
Unfortunately for my team, Konstantinov played injured and he couldn't help in attack. It was like we were playing with two liberos and that made our game predictable. That's why Trentino scored 18 points from blocking.
Now we are looking forward to our next final 4. I hope it will be next year!!

That`s the story of the final. If Plamen could finish 2-3 attacks then we might have won it. I talked to him and the doctor of the team after the semi. He pushed his shoulder to the limit and he couldn`t even raise his hand.

Trentino had a great season in CL and deserved the trophy. But i can`t help thinking that we were so very close .....

I was in Praha. Matches were rally good, but I would Macerata to win a 3rd place match. Other scores are OK.
For me, Winiarski wasn't the best blocker, but he played good at reception.
I hope in next Final Four we will see Bełchatów.

i think it's a scandal what Iraklis's fans just did during match Iraklis-VFB ,first of all no one should even allow them to enter to hall with flare and they fire it before even match finish :hit: CEV should consider some penelty for Greek club
The CEV is considering disciplinary measures against the Hellenic Volleyball Federation and Iraklis.
The greek teams definitely have to find a way to make some washing up into some so-called "fans" who are making their team and nation look so bad. I just hope that it won't penalize the real volley fans who want -and deserve- to see good volley and cheer for their team. That's probably won't be easy, but some measures have to be taken, that's for sure.

CEV will come to a decision on june 11th. My guess is that there will be a pretty big fine (sp???)

While i don`t disagree with you especialy if we add what happened after the CEV cup final , CEV should also give the competitions to cities that can handle it. Prague was completely unprepared to handle big number of fans. The same people were a couple of years in Rome and nothing happened.

And although i didn`t like what went on before the final we have to agree that without the greeks O2 would have been empty and cold.
