Guys among Brakocevic's current shape and Neslihan's current shape who would you pick??

Neslihan has been playing OH for a while but i dont think she would be that effienct if played OPP of this wonderful Eczacıbaşı team
on the other hand, i dont think Brako is/would be that efficient than Neslihan if Neslihan played OPP
if im not mistaken Brako has been playing with a poor percent except 1 or two matches since the beginning of the season
of course she may need some more time
I would pick Neslihan. The reason is Neslihan has great technical skills while Brakocevic relies a lot on her power. Brakocevic is like a white Diouf with better tehnique. The closest I can get to Neslihan is Centoni. The problem with players that rely on their power is, their level drops significantly with the age, after giving birth etc, which explains why Brakocevic is far from her Vakifbank times. Unfortunately most opposites have similar profile such as Boskovic, Goncharova, Diouf...However Neslihan can score at any age simply because she can send the ball wherever she wants on the court easily. Its sad though that she can't generate as much power as she used to. That is mainly because compared to other players, she uses her shoulder only to hit hard, not the full, explosive approach. Not that I forgot her nickname "Iron lady" :box:

Third set of Connegliano - Modena match should be shown as a lecture to all setters, simply to show how a setter shouldnt play and how a setter can destroy her team all alone. Ferretti is not only predictable but also lacks precision. I don't remember a single time Brakocevic could hit the ball comfortably. And why so many sets to zone 6 to Bosetti?
