Men's World Championship 2018

Well, last week both played the panamerican cup (with the same squads) and Argentina won all games (including Venezuela) easily while Venezuela just barely avoided last place beating Mexico...

Men's World Championship 2018

Argentina lost to Venezuela.... I can't believe what I saw... one of the worst ever matches I've seen from an Argentina NT. Velasco understimated the opponent by starting with scrubs like Darraidou and Flores... Thanks god for FIVB silly rules we have a chance to set this straight in two weeks.

Quoted from "ossubtus" AUS played without edgar, anyone know what's up with him? He took a brake from the NT for this year.

Men's World Championship 2018

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" That would be a bad idea if either Brazil or Argentina gets upset in the pool phase, they will have to meet in the semifinals then one of them is going to play in the bronze medal match and will never qualify to the world championship. It wouldn't be bad if thet have 3 slots but South America only has 2. Well, just make the tournament a round-robin then. Anyway, Brazil or Argentina can't possibly lose to the other teams. Not even Venezuela is competitive anymore...

Men's World Championship 2018

I have a question related to the stupid qualification system we have in CSV: the south american championship will be hosted in Chile and it will qualify 1 team for WCh, then few weeks later there will be qualification tournament to decide the other quota in Argentina. My question is, what happens if Argentina wins the first quota, will the second tournament still be held in Argentina but without the host nation? all this stupidity could be avoided if south american championship just gave 2 spots...

2017 FIVB U21 World Championship | Czech Republic

Quoted from "saishuu" So... in theory the final is supposed to be between Russia and Poland, right? Really surprised with Argentina, they even lost to Canada today, finishing dead last in the group. I didn't have many expectations for this generation. Yes, they reached final in u19 but it was at home and their strategy was just making fewer errors than the opponents at an age where the are lots of errors. In truth they have a HUGE physical disadvantage (no player above 200cm, not even the MBs!)...

2017 FIVB U21 World Championship | Czech Republic

In pool E I think Iran and Poland are easily ahead in level to China and Cuba. In pool F Canada will be the whipping boys, Russia will top, and then it's very close between Brazil and Argentina (at south american championship Arg won 3-1).

2017 FIVB World League

Quoted from "ossubtus" really, people, poglajen is 195 cm tall, that's a midget to you? undersized? in what world would that be? I was talking about Toro and Bruno, both who had big part in our wins against Brazil and Bulgaria. Obviously Poglajen is not small for a OH.

2017 FIVB World League

Quoted from "saishuu" Quoted from "LDvolley" Argentina played very good volleyball in all the last weekend despite playing with two midget OHs and a MB as Opp De Cecco worked his magic. Forgot to ask before: where are Gonzalez and Lima? By the way, it is kinda surreal how both USA and Russia made it to final six after such a horrible performance in the first weekend. With Gonzalez (if you mean Jose Luis) I think the coach just judged his time with the NT is over. Lima is injured (not that serio...

If Argentina plays like they did against Serbia and Brazil, Bulgaria will be in big trouble.

2017 FIVB World League

I may be alone in this, but I like the new format. It's more similar to the old WL format we had until some years ago (that I loved) and everyone gets to play everyone, no more easier schedule bullshit for some teams. The only negative is having deadweights like Korea and China instead of Belgium/Slovenia, but whatever...

2017 FIVB World League

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" I honestly feel they should do whatever it takes to get Uriarte back on board. It's not like De Cecco is not giving him space to play this year. So the problem must be internal. I also do not get why they did not take some players from Rio or took Sole in the first round. Uriarte asked again to not be called this year. Don't know what is up with him. From Rio squad well... Jose luis Gonzalez I think was simply not called, Palacios wasn't called because Velasco h...

2017 FIVB World League

Unless Brazil turns things around in this game, it looks like we are set for relegation even if we beat Bulgaria at home in last weekend (I would like to believe Italy will beat either Canada or Belgium). Velasco understimated the competition, there is no reason for De Cecco and Conte to skip this WL.

2017 FIVB World League

Quoted from "mosi" I wonder if I watched a different match ?! You guys talk about Iran-Italy match like it was completely one-sided . while in reality all 3 sets were close. of course the final result was disappointing and even the performance at some point but that was not surprising. Iran is having a new coach, some players are injured, some of them are not in shape. actually they stated to do something from the middle of 2nd set. shame they missed crucial points but still losing to Italy (ev...

2017 - 2018 transfer rumours

So, Bolívar lost Edgar (to japan) and Piá (to SESI) and got Lyneel, Nikic and Theo so far. All the argentine players are staying. I think only Aleksiev is left to confirm (I think he will leave). I would have hoped they went after an international MB rather than look for OHs, but oh well..

2017 - 2018 transfer rumours

Bolívar right now is as good as any club of Brazil except Cruzeiro Our league is also getting better every year, more and more foreigners are finding it attractive (and that despite the economy isn't good). The level is good, not like joke east asian leagues where foreigners score 40 points per game.
