    Goncharova didn't want to visit Turkey because there were political issues between the countries in that year, but I thought you were against bringing politics into volleyball :gone:

    You're literally the only person I ever heard of that Turkish people are…

    My attitude depends on person and how they approach me and Russian NT. Frankly, I learned this attitude when I was in Istanbul in 2nd week from turkish volleyball fans;) it is working:roll: their attitude was even worse than that.

    Hancock and Carlini for me. Poulter is too inexperienced. Lloyd on the other hand is depreciating. These two's setting and their other intangibles like serving and floor defense are also better.

    We will have ECH and OGQ this year. You mostly focus on VNL, yes Turkey is better than Russian NT in VNL:gone: but WCH it is undeniable fact;)

    anyways I don't want to start fights so I deleted my post, I actually even like Russian NT. Parubets, Koroleva are some of my fave players in the world atm. But ur attitude is a bit annoying.

    Russia is lucky to be grouped in an easier pool in the Olympic qualifier because based on what they are showing, boy they will be in trouble qualifying. None of the new players really showed positive prospect. Libero and setter is a big worry. Lets just…

    I was in Istanbul and saw their fans behaviour I think it was their style not mine.

    2017 ? Kuzyutkin ? It is far past. He was fired like Marichev. Did Turkey win gold medals in 2017, bronze medals? Russian beat Turkey NT in 2013 ECH…

    I think the main problem for the Russian NT is still reception & defense I don`t see them getting any better if they don`t improve their ball control in general. Russia needs younger coaches, they need to learn how to play a more modern volleyball. I…

    I don't agree that Zehra played terrible, she made some big mistakes at sp's yesterday yes but also the decisions at that time to her were bad. Zehra has had a very good VNL actually being one of the best MBs, she had many amazing performances. The…

    The pros and cons of having tall setters are like that, if you have tall setter in your team, it means you may have some advantage in front of the net (block, dump shot) and unfortunately, disadvantage on defence. I mostly prefer a setter of medium…
