Italia setter number 4 is very bad. He made many mistakes and his teamates were struggled to hit the balls. Italia is losing the match against Austrailia @@ OMG

Bohme is playing as Opp in Germany. I never saw him playing as Opp.

Giani is using VNL to try everthing.
I think he is not satisfied with OPP position. But Fromm and Bohme are not good choices, I would say. The young Weber could be a suitable candidate.

Since GER is not participating WCH, why is he still trying everything? I think their main goal is to enter the F6. If they could have won the past two matches, there is still a chance for them. Now it's highly impossible.


I don't know why neither Malescha nor Weber were in the roster. Malescha is surely no superstar but as an opposite i think he would have added more to team than Böhme/Fromm. Linus Weber is considered to be the biggest talent in german volleyball for quite some time and his breakthrough as a high standard opposite would be very needed. But he is still only 18 and hasn't even played Bundesliga Volleyball yet. So he is only a promise to the future so far and imho germany will have to go with Hirsch/Malescha/Marks for the next years....
how's it even possible for a 203 cm tall player to be a libero????

Couldn’t watch the match. Who is that player?

He may refer to Egor Bogachev, Germany's second libero. He is only libero on paper and i don't think he will still see the court in VNL. He is a very talented OH whose actual weak points are reception/ball control. He is with the team for learning and hopefully this will pay out soon.
never mess with your setter......

Ahahahahhaha Blengini didn’t use Lanza to create more ‘excuses’ . He is nothing without Juantorena and Zaytsev
-Still hasn’t found any alternatives for Juantorena/Zaytsev. Nelli was so so ,Randazzo was disastrous .
-No alternative for Giannelli. Eliminate Spirito after one bad game.
-No new player
-Guidetti qualified to Final Six with much less talented team ,so no excuse.

Italy is nothing in attack without Zaytsev and Juantorena, I hope they will be soon back. We also have great problems with the setter: Giannelli is of course the first choice, but after him... nothing. Spirito played awfully against Japan in the last weekend, while Baranowicz was unwatchable today. Many sets were imprecise, there are no connection with the other players and some choices were questionable. Bad also Nelli and Randazzo.. so many silly mistakes and no concentration.
In general, too many mistakes in attack and on serve. Australia had their job eased by all the mistakes Italy made.. just such a horrible thing to watch. I don't know if Italy can make it to finals, anyway these players that had the opportunity to show their value, they showed nothing. Bad, very bad impression.. I'm really disappointed!

What's with this Japan team. They can go and play like the rest of the great teams. Is this going to be the sudden reversal of fortune? The JAP W team is going a bit down and the JAP M is on the rise?

Without De Cecco and Conte, this Argentine team is very average.

Because they are playing against weakened teams. Argentina's level will rise dramatically when their key players like De Cecco returns to the national team.

Bulgaria is again playing very decent. Brasil may very well leave Varna with 3 defeats.

I don't know what's up with Brazil:/ They seem to be playing from bad to worse with each game. Honestly, I find it difficult to believe that they are on the verge of losing against this Bul team...

Congrats to the Bulgarian team. Although Brazil played really bad this week, it still takes courage for the Bulgarian team to win.

The games here in the other venue is somewhat dark. Is this normal? I am seeing shadows. Or it is just me.

USA was able to sweep their pool without dropping a set.

This DeFalco kid is really something. Not the hardest hitter nor highest leaper but has very good VB IQ. If he can stay healthy, I can see him having the same success as Giba or Murilo. He should skip his last playing year of college and turn pro.
