It's our brand :thumbup: In Italy we don't like the GOLD medal
And the same thing happened in the Men's Final of Rio 2016. I am still recovering from that match (mostly because Gianelli is my baby)

Indeed, and look at Cev Cups final matches this yea: 4 defeats by 4 Italian teams. Again, we LOVE the silver colour :D IT's more elegant, more sophisticated


totally true... silver looks better!!!!

When was the last time Italy Men won any gold medal? The women won back in 2011 right?

I will said it before and I will say it again... SHAME on the 11 teams. And they should be hitting their heads on the wall with Brazil winning it again....

...I honestly don`t think Brazil will ever loose the Grand Prix, if they can win with a Brand new set of players and rookies, how will they ever NOT win?? Every team out there must open their eyes and play better and with more passion and fire just like Brazil does..


:mad: :obey: :aww: :what:
Brazil is the last team we want to see winning this years Grand Prix. And if they win this year again FIVB should just cancel the GP...because it will be really F%$#%$$%%% and every team should get spanked really hard.

My dream team:

Setter: Roberta
MB: Ana & Adenizia
OH: Zhu & Mihajlovic
Opp: Tandara
Libero: De Genarro

MVP: Tandara


I would trade Roberta to Malinov or the Chinese setter, and OPP to Egonu.
I think Roberta played her role very well, bringing this team to won the gold medal. But maybe you are right, Egonu should have won best opp.

But is it possible for Tandara to win the MVP without an individual award?

I don`t get it how Egonu and Boskovic gets blocked by Brazil, but Serbia/Italy can`t stop Tandara.
ahahah I was wondering the same!!!! :whistle:

Like who??

Serbia? USA? Russia? Italy? Brazil has beaten all of them in the past 2 years frame and that`s exactly how they manage to win. Only team that seams better than Brazil is China once Brazil lost for them the in the last 3 meetings. ( excluding the Mountreux).

And looks kind clearly had China not beaten Brazil in that quaterfinal Brazil would be 3x Champion. I always wondered if Serbia would have beaten Brazil if that was the final. but now I think Brazil would have beaten Serbia if they were in the final.

Oh welllllllllll...... Shame on every team ....Congrats to Brazil but they should not have won this again.... I`m so pissed. :mad:
I can easily say that there are better teams than today's Brazil. But this is sport and this is volleyball, congratulations.
With Brazil might be getting stronger with this line-up next year you might be ready for some more heartbreak HAHAHAHA

But do you think Gabi and Juciely will still have their sport in the NT?


gabi - she's still young and brazil always have problems on who to put on the OH position so I think she's still going to be selected or at least one of the options.
juciely - she's already too old BUT if she continues to play really well, why not?

But with Rosamaria, Natalia, Fe Garay, and Drussyla around, will she be able to grab her spot?


Juciely might be old, but she is still a world-class player. She was the reason Rexona won that fifth-set on the recent Superliga final.

throwing to the dogs
but that idiom means to allow someone to be criticized or attacked.
Wrong choice of idiom??


no, it means to "throw something away." for example, if you throw a good fillet mignon steak to the dogs... you want to keep it for yourself.
throw somebody to the dogs

to allow someone to be criticized or attacked, often in order to protect yourself from being criticized or attacked I reallyfelt as if I'd been thrown to the dogs just to save other people's reputations.

Best setter should be Roberta, and MVP Tandara or even Egonu.

Natalia deserves it but she already won it last year. I think this makes her the only back to back MVP.

Boskovic best OPP :box:

Truth is stranger than fiction!

Just around 12 months ago the Chinese team won big in the Brazilian soil. The host got empty handed.

This time the Brazilian team returned the favor, it won here after passed the needle hole, thus it's a big win as well, and the same thing also happened, the host got nothing either.

Just a funny tidbit :-)

But I'm happy to see the Brazilian team gets the trophy again after I lost my horse. It seems this team really has the multi-year contract with WGP liken the Japanese has the multi-year contract with FIVB for hosting the World Cup :P So congratulations to the Brazilian team for the 12th trophy iirc! What an achievement!

As for the Italian team, it has been performing much better than most folks might ever expect at the beginning, just a few might truly expect this team to come that far in this F6 round. Yet it did make it. But unlike in the preceding match, there's no such X factor sided with this team today, in fact the X factor might very well have switched side today to the Brazilian favor watching how the games developed. But having a silver medal is still quite an achievement for this dark horse team, indeed. So congratulations too!

Natalia is the first person ever to win back-to-back MVP. This is going to be a huge pressure on her to carry the team from here on now.

Any one knows the result for the Dream Team?

Edit: NVM got it. I think Roberta was robbed. Hmm.

Yes, she has. He was talking about two time MVP players. Logan won in 2004 despite the US not being able to reach the finals
