Good win for Brazil, I was skeptical they could do it. I'm really happy to have seen Douglas on court, and he actually delivered! Weird timing for his attack to return to form, right against Russia out of all teams.

Great to see Isac solidifying his status as a starter too (bye, M. Souza!). Thales also outclassed Murilo into oblivion. It's obvious who should be playing.

I always have faith in Douglas since I first watch him play in 2014/15. He is not like the other Brazilian OH, his approach is a little bit different. But since he is a little bit skinny/lighter than all the other OH, he makes it work.

Isaac is a huge potential, I wish he will improve his lateral movements and his approach to attacking. It is time to put younger players to play full time.

And please, I don't know about Murilo but I believe he doesn't deserve to be there. Brazil already have 2 great liberos.

I have faith in Douglas too! He had a terrible season last year and it was painful to watch, but I still like him.
Brazil actually has quite a few younger OH with lots of potential, which is surprising. I'm still waiting for Rodriguinho's time to shine too.
Isac has grown a lot. imo he just needs to work on his blocking and his connection with Bruno - he plays beautifully with William as we've seen against USA.
Murilo shouldn't have been called, but we all know he's gonna be in WCH and perhaps even in Tokyo. Thales is better than both him and Brendle these days.

yes, last season was painful to watch. i don't know what happened to him. but i am glad he is back on his track. he will be a very good counter part for Lucarelli. please no more Lipe.

i just started to watch men's club level volleyball and not really familiar yet with most of the players but as far as i can see brazil indeed has lots of talent in volleyball so i think they should invest more on young players. coach ze roberto made a huge mistake with the women team and it showed in Rio 2016. hopefully both the men and women team learn from that.

i haet the fact that murilo is there simply because of sentimental value. the fallen former captain who made a come back. the same thing with serginho last year. brazil would have won the olympic gold medal even without serginho imo. thales is definitely in for Tokyo 2020 and hopefully Brendle steps up his game.

Murilo and Jacqueline will be the first official OH turn liberos power couple in volleyball soon.

Yeah, agreed. There's tons of players that can be tested in the NT and I'm actually enjoying how Renan is rotating the team for the most part. Not having Lucarelli available helps too.

I think Serginho was there mostly as a leader, like the glue that held the team together. I think he was key for the win in Rio.

Serbia wins.

I thought it should have been 3-0 but Grbic have to rest Ivovic in some form. Neither Katic and Kovacevic are good enough to hold the team together yet that makes it impossible for Ivovic not to play in a single day.

Kovacevic and Jovovic are now creating some connection so it's expected to see Ivovic on the bench for the South Korea match... I hope. :gone:

Vlasov out please.
I wonder what's wrong with him he played better last year. When Vlasov is in the front row, Russia has a gaping hole in the center because he is at the wrong position or late when going up for the block, makes silly mistakes in attack, I think Rains is right he is the male version of Efimova in Russian NT. I think he is one of the coach's favorite as he was part of that youth team that the Russian coach managed in the past. In my opinion, Kurkaev would have fared much better and I hope Kurkaev will get called by the coach for WCH.

Is there any player better than Vlasov as the 4th MB?

1. Muserskiy
2. Volvich
3. Kurkaev
4.

Filippov with the most skills but is smaller in stature. Vlasov is a giant but a weak server. I am not sure of the others but that's how it boils down in this roster.

Vlasov used to be better than Fillipov but the injuries could have affected him. I think the coach just wanted him to find his form again but while it's not critical to their losses... Vlasov isn't justifying his case with his performance.

Solid line-up for Germany today. Zimmermann seems good, as well as Sossenheimer. Reichert is playing a really good tournament too.

Krick is a cutie. :whistle:
