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.

The U.S. Men’s National Volleyball Team will be in Montes Claros and Uberlandia, Brazil next week for a series of five exhibition matches.

Originally, the two teams were supposed to be competing in the America’s Cup tournament, but that was cancelled due to the timing of the NORCECA Men’s Continental Championship (Oct. 12-18 in Puerto Rico).

U.S. Head Coach Alan Knipe (Huntington Beach, Calif.) said he and Brazil Head Coach Bernardo “Bernardinho” Rezende discussed the possibility of playing the “friendly” matches while both teams were at the FIVB World League Final Round in July.

Brazil went on to win the 2009 World League title, which the United States had won the year before.

“Brazil has been on top of volleyball for a while except for a few matches,” Knipe said. “For us to train and compete with them is really a great opportunity. They play a great system and we play a great system. It will be a learning experience.”

The two teams have not faced each other since the championship match at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. However the U.S. team that won the gold medal is very different from the one that will compete this year in Brazil. Only four players from that team are on the roster: middle blocker and team captain Tom Hoff (Park Ridge, Ill.), libero Rich Lambourne (Tustin, Calif.), outside hitter Riley Salmon (League City, Texas) and outside hitter Scott Touzinsky (St. Louis, Mo.).

Many of the U.S. players have already joined their overseas club teams.

“We’re going in with guys we hope will greatly benefit from playing Brazil this many times,” Knipe said. “You get to reassess the match immediately, make changes and then play again.”

Two young U.S. setters – Brian Thornton (San Clemente, Calif.) and Jonathan Winder (Irvine, Calif.) – will pace the team in Brazil.

“It is going to be really interesting for us as far as how they respond,” Knipe said. “They are very different in their skill sets and what they bring to the floor.

“They are doing a great job in the gym or they wouldn’t be going.”

Outside hitter Matt Anderson (West Seneca, N.Y.) will be back with the U.S. Men after recovering from a bout of pneumonia that kept him out of the second half of World League.

“Part of regaining your level of play is the reps and the mental part of getting back out there and doing it,” Knipe said.

According to a Brazilian press release, the players representing Brazil will be setters Marlon and Sandro, opposites Leandrão, João Paulo and Theo, outside hitters Murilo, Thiago Alves and Maurício, middle blockers Lucas, Éder, Sidão and Tiago Barth and liberos Serginho and Mário Jr.

Slovakia - Bulgaria 3:2 today, Bulgaria without Nikolov, Kaziyski, Yosifov, Tsvetanov, Salparov, Sokolov, but with Yordanov and Todorov. I thought that these two guys will make Slovakia suffer more :what:
Todorov is the top - scorer of the game with 14 pts - 10 in attack with 4 blocks. Martin Nemec from Slovakia with 13 pts
(ace, attack, block):
Jekov - 5,(2,2,1)
Yordanov - 13 (0, 12, 1),
Alexiev - 9 (0, 9, 0),
V.Bratoev - 2 (0, 2, 0),
Teodor Todorov - 14 (0, 10, 4),
N.Nikolov - 10 (0, 8, 2),
N.Penchev - 10 (2, 6, 2),
N.Uchikov - 3 (0, 3, 0),
Stanev - 4 (0, 2, 2),
А.Simeonov - 7 (0, 7, 0),
S.Gotsev - 1 (0, 0, 1),
Surprisingly low level of blocks, only 13 for 5 sets, too low for our standarrd. I don't have numbers for Slovakian players, only Nemec's points
Pts distribution:
Setters - 9 pts
Outside hitters - 28
Opposites - 16
Middle Blockers - 25
Total - 78
112 pts for Bulgaria - 34 errors for Slovakia

RESULTS:
The observed results indicate that, sooner or later, weight training leads to full recovery and as such is therapeutically indispensable. ... As a result, all the patients recuperated. ... All the patients who enrolled in the weight training programme were able to avoid back surgery.

See! No one ever believes me when I say Alexiev is a good player, but he is!

Oh and Holland beat Belgium 5-0 and then lost 3-2. They played twice before but don't remember, although I know that they both won one there too. Dick Kooy is apparently absolutely unstopable. Blanche has been playing:Van Harskamp, Klapwijk, kooistra, Bontje, Horstink, Rauwerdink and Maan as starting 7. Trommel Freriks and Kooy as mentioned apparently are doing well as subs. In fact, our whole B-team is a quite strong team with van Dijk, Lorseheijd, Vlam and the others just mentioned.
