I went through the last 4 years pool by pool to look at whether the teams had played each other and what we can potentially expect.

Yes, some of the players have changed, but what are some surprising things from the data and then who do I think will win each pool?

Crossing of the second phase: https://www.volleyball.it/mondiali-2018-…a-seconda-fase/

But Italy and Bulgaria if qualified to second phase will be assured to play in their own country. May be not if they got 4 in the first pool, it isn't clear.

Tomorrow at 3pm the italian tickets will be on sail for Rome, Milan, Turin, Florence.
For Bologna and Bari not yet.

Yes, they let us wait for months, and know they advise us only one day before (not even 24h, actually), and WITHOUT GIVING THE PRICES.

Madness.

I copy your answer here as well for everybody:

Hi!

I'm pretty sure they will open the sell of other sectors time by time, no way it's already sold out.
We all think the same in the Italian fans blog, but of course it's just a guess.
Last year with the CL final4 in Rome it was the same.

Also in Rome they started selling only in two (big) sectors, of course the one on the referee side, because it would be too right to let the people that buy the ticket first pick the best spot :down:
[sorry, I'm pretty mad about it, I had to fight with it as well for Rome, and I will think later if I'll buy ticket for Turin as well. I'm also astonished there isn't a single ticket for the whole final4]

I think they do that to:
- have the 'TV side' full
- force people to buy tickets thinking they're almost gone

Sorry Italian organization is making this mess, I feel ashamed for their behavior, first giving only one day of advice and without prices, then this...

Now they opened another sector in Turin, at 28 euros (not numbered, on the short side of the court)

It's not the first time that Sokolov misses the NT season. It's a pity that Bulgaria NT has lost the most important player again.

Has the Bulgarian volleyball federation ever discussed with Lube the timing of the surgery, for example, the beginning of the club season?

The Federation surely not, perhaps only Konstantinov, but he already declared that he hadn't talked to Sokolov. It was partially Lube's, partially Sokolov's decision, as far as I know, to take painkillers in order to complete the club season and then undergo a surgery during the summer. I don't know when exactly the problem first occurred but it is obvious now in April-May that a surgery cannot be avoided and should be scheduled as soon as possible. Based on Sokolov's interviews in Sofia these days, he seemed totally aware and willing to sacrifice the NT season. Well, it isn't the first time that a player prefers the club paycheck to time with the NT. And whereas the Bulgarian NT might suffer from his absence, I still hope the duo Uchikov-Yordanov could deliver instead.

He extended with Lube for 3 more years so that tells you how he values his club over his messy NT led by Konstantinov. :white:


I think Sokolov was already feeling the pain in December 2017 He only played 3 less games than what he should've played in his condition for this season I'm not even counting World Club Championship and Champions League. :white:


Konstantinov should have probably used all in his power to put less strain on Tsetso during the club season considering they are the co-host of the world championship but it's too late and I couldn't see Bulgaria taking a podium anyway. I think Sokolov made a wise decision for his career.

I still hope Bulgaria makes a surprise but I am not very optimistic with their chances. I think everything lies within R. Penchev and his improvement and the opposite replacement.
