Nakada never smiles, she`s always so seriously. Interesting to see Ferhat talking with the players during the time-out.

Koga is putting up on a show right now... :P

The Turk guy is the real coach in my understanding, the one who really tells the players what to do etc. The muted lady coach standing on the sideline can't be too real, good for kabuki show only.

WHAT HAPPENED TO BRAZIL?

Smaller MBs this time. Both Thaisa and Fabiana had the length to stop those combination attacks or out of system plays from Thailand and Japan.

It also doesn't help that Brazil is lacking clear leadership. You know someone like Sheilla who is always calm under pressure. Everyone seems nervous during crunch time.

Natalia is also not playing well. I think of all players from here she needs the rest.

I also feel terrible coaching/managing decisions were made by Ze taking Monique instead of Edinara. Monique is setter-dependent and she plays better with Roberta than with Naiane during the substitution . The smaller stature is not helping their cause as well especially in blocking. Roberta is like taller than Monique and Tandara spikes also much better in backrow than Monique in frontrow. :white:

Interesting starting lineup for Japan. Nakada is really going with a devil may care "Okay girls show me what you got" rotation


Nakada took great receivers/defenders and dropped Mari from the line up. I think that was great managing since Brazil can serve really hard at them. For a small team like Japan, every mistake is crucial so passing has to be great at all times.

Btw, it seems like I had a problem with this site this past week. I keep getting connection errors. I thought the site was down but it doesn't seem to be the case with everyone after I check some of the previous pages. :white:

This win was crucial for Japan because (losing 1 point could cost them a lot) next week they face Serbia,China and Russia.

I was happy with Koga`s performance, only problem was that Sato overwhelmed her with so many sets ( She got 61 swings, Shinnabe 42, Uchiseto 36) after a while everyone knew where the ball was going and so did the Brazilian Block.

Interesting that Myashita came to serve in the 5set at 15-15.

Another loss for Brazil, 22 blocks was not enough.


That just seems fair number of swings considering she is the commonly only option available to hit. Uchiseto took most of the passing responsibility and Risa there to support Koga as well if she gets targeted so the number of swings is just an necessary evil that Koga has to overcome.

I really wish Ze can put her trust on Naiane a little bit more. Roberta looks frustrated as hell and she probably needs a little time thinking. Imo Naiane is the better setter than Roberta but she's always unlucky every time she's on court as the team loses mysteriously their passing. :white:

This Italian team is really something! Right now, Serbia is arguarbly the best European team but they should be careful or Italy could easily steal the crown from them. Italy has very good players in every position but Chirichella, Malinov, and specially Egonu are standouts. :super:

Yeah they have everything right now....Attack, Block, defence, reception and serve

MBs are attacking very good, We don't need to talk about Egonu at all and now Sylla is doing good job too.
Bosetti and De Gennaro are AMAZING in defence with them in your court your attackers can be calm when they don't score because they know they have very good block and this two in defence.
I just love Italy as team :heart:

That's what Jelena Nikolić says too :P She expects these two teams to battle it out for years to come.

Marte needs to distribute better. Brayelin is dead on her feet already after two weekends and she keeps feeding her ball after ball.
