In my opinion, GS has better guns with more variation in attacking than Imoco. I would like to see this two meeting in a semi final, it will sure be a good match.
GS and Imoco probably would not play in semi-final unless Vakifbank misses semi-final for some reason. I think Vakifbank and GS has to play face to face if both teams get to semi-final. But Imoco-GS would be a great matchup for playoff 6 round, very likely :lol: .

Gs probably will be F4 host :whistle:

Of course Conegliano or Novara or Kazan can beat Turkish teams.It's not world end.In 2014 Kazan was champions by 3-0, in 2016 Pomi was champion by 3-0.It is sport, everything can be.
I really hope that to happen unless Imoco or Novara takes it. Rumours were that GS or Volero will host it. It will be a shame to watch this Volero in F4 and will be unfair to the other semifinalists :wall:
If there is a rumor that volero will host it. I bet on volero will host it this year. Gs plays well and may get enough points to advance and they may not need to fight turkish team in play-off phase this time.So, I think they should build confidence and prove themselve step by step. :teach:

I‘m not a fan of Fenerbahce, and even if I am I would not look for excuses! You should calm down and apologize for your senseless comments comparing two leagues when you wrote that Fabris is ready for Turkey at the beginning of the season, but now again praising Italian league!

Hill had a sub par game in reception, attack and block but she was good in serve. But best of all her reception, defense, and serve were excellent in the crucial 5th set. 7 receptions of which 4 were perfect (setter didn't have to take more then one step), 2 were good (setter took less then 5 steps), and one error. Also she had that 4 point service run which included no aces but serves were difficult and a couple of solid digs. Long service runs were her specialty last year for Vakif with the Mikasa and her jump float. She has struggled this year in Italy as her ball has much less movement and she seems to be over thinking placement. In Italy she has a serious case of the yips, 5 errors in 10 serves the last match. She's playing the same role for Imoco as she did last year for Vakif being a solid generalist in all parts of her game. People may have noticed that Kelsey Robinson who played well last year for Imoco has not been able to replace Gozde this year in CL which suggests that she has had a drop in her performance but her social media presence has really taken off. Probably the best of the American girls after Destinee crashed her social media dreams several years ago after her big Olympics performance.
From Hill to K Robinson is probably a downgrade for Vakifbank. But to be fair, Hill also didn't start in CL last year until at playoff 6 round. Let's see how it plays out this year, K Robinson has played more and more now and Gozde has been playing well.


No you are wrong, Hill startet the most matches in CL CWCC and all other matches where there is no foreigner limit.

This is called provoking :down:

Didn't know Seramiksan played in CL :rolll: cause no they don't and in no way does this have anything to do with any of my last posts but I guess you just like being a little forum troll don't you. Don't mention me for such things pls.

All right, Hill also started 3 CL league round games last year (Dresdner SC twice and Ecz once). Hill also didn't show much until CL playoff 6 round, she made a big impact at CL final 4 and CWCC. Hope K Robinson will do the same.

Samanta Fabris will miss match against Fenerbahce, because of ankle injury. She is on the sticks till Thursday than they will say when She will return...

This is 4th Imoco player who is injured this season. Megan, Folie, Papafotiou and now Fabris second time this season.

Yeah.. they've been really unlucky. And Samatha too, she just got back on the right track

Don't worry, fenerbahce is totally in mess now. Imoco still has bigger chance. :lol:

True. She was okej whole season after broken finger, and against Monza She showed very aggressive volley and very good confidence but again She good injured. She didn't broke anything but still ankle needs to rest, and after some times out of the gym and training you are not 100% ready.

Nicoletti is so unstable I'm afraid about her performance :S

Turkey may enter into war of regional conflict with syria. I bet cev will not let turkey host final 4 this year. So If veloro becomes the host. Group B will be the real group of death. :cheesy:

Wasn't there like a rule that only teams that end up first in their group can be the host of the F4?

515

Monday, February 5th 2018, 3:00pm

the rule is changed from last year. Imoco volley became the host last year. :teach:

I don't see why Volero would want to host F4. They invested less money than ever in this team and have no chance to win whatsoever, so why waste money on hosting?

I can think of a pretty high number of clubs, which might host the F4: Alba BLAJ, Novara, Kazan, Moscow, Chemik Police to name some with perspective.

No Alba Blaj, please! They are already lucky with their draw, a final four slot shouldn't be awarded to them. Kazan is the only team that deserves to be in the final four besides Turkish and Italian teams (even then, they will be 4th most likely) :whistle:

By the way, will Vargas play against Vakifbank? She is not on the roster but Guidetti said he expects Dinamo to be stronger after addition of their new transfer :teach:

Despite Grot Budowlani LODZ could "steal" again a set from Istanbul team in their Atlas hall, they had no chance overall in the match and lost again, this time in four partly too one-sided sets.

Of course Alba Blaj would get the crap beaten out of them, if they dare and get the F4 tournament by the other superiour teams.
