Italian NT 2017

Makes perfect sense to me, it's time to let the youngsters grow and win some matches without Zaytsev saving the day everytime. 2018 WCH is just around the corner.

Italy – Superlega Unipolsai 2016-2017

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" Btw. Is there any better italian libero than Bari that Perugia can buy next season? He was horrendous this season and probably the biggest reason Perugia lost so many matches against the other big 3 plus the big choke from Piacenza. I still don't understand they didn't give Tosi his chances to start as main libero. Is he injured or something? My thoughts exactly. He's been horrendous for at least 3 years.

Italy – Superlega Unipolsai 2016-2017

Quoted from "TimHH" Quoted from "Kk15" Trento-Perugia Wonderful links, thanks from my side as well..... Watched the 4th and the end of 3rd set. Not exactly a beauty of a match but very intense for sure. Trento just delivered better on serve/reception in the end game of these sets. At times it is that simple.... By the way, how could you stand this commentator? Non stop talking in a very stressing frequency. Does she get paid by words?? All Italian tv commentators are like that, talking like it'...

Russian NT 2017

Quoted from "powsoff" Quoted from "vabo" And I thought the guy before Alekno (so useless I forgot his name) was the worst thing ever happened to Russian volleyball. Many criticise Voronkov for failing to address the problems of the NT (OHs) and introducing the new players on time. Having said that, the chap won the Euro title and the World League with very much his own team. Do you remember when e.g. Italy won any of these - before typing "the worst thing ever"? I don't care about the results o...

Russian NT 2017

What cunning strategy, what a great way of introducing yourself to the volleyball world, threatening everyone on day 1. Imagine a new boss showing up at work and giving such a message before even meeting the team. And I thought the guy before Alekno (so useless I forgot his name) was the worst thing ever happened to Russian volleyball.

Italy – Superlega Unipolsai 2016-2017

Quoted from "Mamdani" Quoted from "vabo" IMHO the weakest link of Modena is Ngapeth. He's visibly out of shape and aging fast. I also think Holt made a terrible mistake in renewing his contract so early and for such a long time. Why? This is a bad season, we all hope we are going to do better next years He could have chosen a better team, period. Of course quality of life is another key factor, he's obviously enthusiastic about his new life in Italy so bless him. Taking back Travica... madness....

Italy – Superlega Unipolsai 2016-2017

One of the few good ideas the Italian federation had this year was playing in the middle of the holidays season. It's obvious some players are really not happy about it, but the sport halls all over Italy are packed, therefore it works.

Turkish NT 2016

Quoted from "flyingdutchman" Quoted from "vabo" Ha. I said it before and I will say it again. When given a chance, Dutch volleyball federation will take the stupidest decision possible. Letting Guidetti go is inexcusable. Under no circumstance you should let the person who resurrected your team go away. You talk nonsens, really. According to Maret Grothues, Guidetti already made his decision after the Turkish Federation talked with him two weeks ago. She tried to offer solutions to him, but she...

Guidetti wanting to spend more time with his family in Turkey makes sense, also the Dutch federation will almost always do the most stupid thing when given a choice.

FIVB World Grand Prix 2017

Why are you surprised? FIVB wants worldwide volleyball to grow. Nothing makes our sport grow like giving wild cards to teams that will lose all their matches 3-0 25-15.
