that 2nd set, ITA just destroyed BRA. ortolani et al are all so relaxed and smiling...

That's how winners behave

Shame Italy won't advance. They are a lot of fun to watch.
So true!

Finishing first or second will be very beneficial for Brazil becuase they will have the weakest team in the final 6 Turkey on their pool so they will likey to make it to SF.
I actually think Turkey will kick Brazil out of semis if they meet in F6 :wavy:
WHAT? :what: tell me it's a joke. right?
Why should it be? Turkish girls have been improving their game since the beginning of this tournament. The only match they lost without a point was against Brazil, 3-1 and it was still a close call. So it is likely that Turkey kicks Brazil off the semis.
Oh Boy! :roll: Seriously guys(Turkish fans), your typical and outrageous extrapolations and predictions are freaking annoying!! :wall: I don't want to discuss about your prediction further because I don't wish to get into another drama. We have more than enough this week.
Well if you use a language where you generalize every single user to some kind of group with your basic assumptions, plus if you act like a holigan, it is no surprise that you face weird dramas. I have been in this forum about 5 years, people already know how a volleyball lover I am, not a fanatic. However you recently joined to this forum, surprisingly during a time where the forum is under attack by several trolls and all you did so far is provoking.

Plus, you can't come up with a single volleyball related reason as a counter argument but instead attack individually. I wish you could understand what the problem here is...

Egonu is full of mistakes today. When she doesn't kill ball and then she makes mistakes. Maybe she is used to play as OPP

congrats to DOM, 3-1 over hosts POL.

it's their only 3rd win, i think, they only beat ARG and THA before. they lost 3-2 to BEL, KOR and JPN, and they could have taken all those 3 matches... too bad.

OK OK I admit I'm a troll. Turkish team will be the champion in this VNL Happy now?? But seriously, sport predictions are based mostly on statistics. You said it yourself that you lost to Brazil and without a point. Do you really think because you have more 5th sets than other teams that you will be the king of the hill? :aww: I'm done with this topic.

Congrats to the Netherlands!

Germany should have given more time to Orthmann to play on court, like what Italy did for Pietrini. Geerties' attacking has improved. However, she still looks a bit too thin. Stigrot did a good job on OPP position.

On the Netherland side, I would say Lohuis is much better than Koolhaas. Her blocking was solid, and she did a good job on defense. Daalderop's performance was impressing.

i watched Tur vs Chi match

all the players did well. Ebrar Karakurt started shaky then did better as the match was progressing. she had some nice kills..Hande played a very solid game in the first two sets then a little recession and rising again. Meliha did her job..Zehra Güneş was good at attacking, could have been better at blocking . Beyza Arıcı did well at sliding but she was absent at blocking..i remember she was doing well in the finals of TL..she should be careful of that and do better..all the team was weak at blocking. 4 blocks in 4 sets are so few for a tall team (2 of them belongs to Zehra)..Eda is very important for block but the others should learn to play without her ..Libero Aylin Sarıoğlu did a good job too.

of China, i hope Gong is alright..she was doing well till her injury..China was good at blocking..MB Wang and Gong were blocking well..Li Yingying couldnt make many points but i have to say she plays very smart.she doesnt hit the bal rightl into block when block is good in front,she prefers long spikes on the backline,sharp tips on the sidelines etc instead..China's offence on position 3 was not good..neither Yuan nor Wang made many points on zone 3 however Yuan did well at slide attacks..Zhang Yichan did well too.Chunlei also showed her experience in a short time she played.

actually DOM beating POL is not that surprising. they have been struggling this year but they are a good team. from the little i saw, it seems kwiek moved eve to MB, but still kept her in backrow for passing, and gonzalez played as OPP, with pena moved to OH.

I did not say Turkish team will be champions. I am just against an unreasonable bashing of a young team which had a successful tournament. I am more than happy to hear everyone's arguments here, about players and what a team is missing or good at, but not just silly simple one sentence comments.

About what you raised secondly, volleyball or life is not all about statistics. If you watched the game between two teams or watched any of the matches Turkish girls played throughout this tournament, you would understand what I meant. Besides, you are right, this is sports and any, yes, any results are possible. Brazil can lose against both Netherlands and China and play 5-6th place too. I don't get this view of "we are the best, we are soo unbeatable", especially now, when Brazil simply relies on Tandara on the wings while OHs are shaky. Now you can be done with this topic :whistle:
