Italy-Ned 3-0 (plus a 4th set, but I didn't find out how it's ended – I guess that means Ned won xD Italy played with the bench, anyway)* Streaming (it was also live) on Nederlands Heren Volleyballteam Fb page (it should be the official one). And also on 'Federazione Italiana Pallavolo' FB page. Tomorrow second and last friendly match it's at 16.00. I only watched the third set (quite close but not amazing, imho). The titular (as in the sets before) were Giannelli-Vettori, Lanza-Antonov, Piano-M...

FIVB U23 World Championship - 2017 |

I'm quite interest about the new score system, I think it has interesting possibility, along with some things that may not work better than the previous system. I also read the technical time out won't be given (alleluia! after the OG I thought FIVB finally got rid of them but they came back for WL/GP ) and that the stop between two sets has been reduced to 2 minutes (instead of 3). Plus, they won't switch court until the second set is ended, and then eventually after the 4th, 5th and 6th. I won...

Quoted from "rbdfabio" Quoted from "Kk15" Will USA call back Anderson and Holt? (There is also Russell to consider, but I guess he is still recovering, or better, finding is shape back...) Yes, Anderson, Holt and Russell will be playing against Brazil this weekend and I think they will be at Champions Cup as well. Not sure if he`s 100% recovered but he is listed to play. and do you know what team Italy will send to the Champions Cup? A or B? Nice to know that Russell is ok or at least quite clo...

Basic volleyball vocabulary in different languages

Quoted from "Sidney" Is backrow attack called "pipe" in English? I always thought this was something Brazilian commentators invented In Italy we use 'pipe' (read as in English, so what would be 'paip' in Italian) only for the attack from zone 6, not for the back row attack by the opposite. I love the term 'BICK', btw!!! I've never notice it, I will pay more attention next time.

Italian NT 2017

Quoted from "ossubtus" i thought diouf had said she would never play for NT again? after she was cut from olympics? I think – I'm not sure – she said she wouldn't have with that staff... Also Lucia said the same. Quoted from "ossubtus" i wonder if they have given up on training egonu as a passing OH We all wonder that too. It's not clear. The fact Diouf – that was recovering from a back problem – is back may suggest that, but at the same time she may just become the second opposite, if she will...

Basic volleyball vocabulary in different languages

Nice topic, it's the first time I see it! I'll make few adds for the Italian: Quoted from "Loca inside" substition - sostituzione Also 'cambio' (literally it means 'change') is very used. The technical term is 'sostituzione', though. Quoted from "Loca inside" outside hitter - schiacciatore-ricevitore, banda, schiacciatore di posto 4, schiacciatore-laterale, attaccante di mano, ala Also 'martello' (literally 'hammer') is often used. I would said it's one of the most used, actually. And among the ...

Italian NT 2017

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" Vettori is pribably a Trentino thing. Maybe politics was involved so Giannelli and Vettori can be connecting better during the club season. I really don't think that's the case. Actually I would think the opposite, that the fact Vettori is going to play with Giannelli for three years (or at least both contracts says that) could have been a factor to use Vettori as opp and Zaytsev as OH. So, NT using Trento, not Trento using NT. At least that's my impression foll...

Italian NT 2017

These are the players for the two friendly matches in Netherland (18 and 19/0, and it's highly probable that the 14 players for the ECh will be from this 15-players list, if Randazzo condition allows it (he is recovering from a muscular problem that stopped him for a while). Matteo Piano, Fabio Ricci, Simone Buti, Daniele Mazzone; Luca Vettori, Giulio Sabbi; Iacopo Botto, Luigi Randazzo, Oleg Antonov, Filippo Lanza; Simone Giannelli, Luca Spirito; Fabio Balaso, Massimo Colaci, Nicola Pesaresi. N...

Quoted from "rbdfabio" But why teams are always playing so many friendly games? And they all just played WL ....don`t they need rest after such a long and exhausting season??? Well, speaking for Italy, having skipped the WL final6 it's like a month (even more) that they just train-train-train. At a certain point you need to play vs a real opponent to asset your game condition. It would be very risky, imho, to start the ECh without playing an (almost) real match in 2 months!

Men's Club World Championship 2017

Ps you will notice that I didn't even entered the discussion 'are Sesi and Taubate stronger than the strongest Italian teams?', because for me it doesn't (or better, it shouldn't) matter at all in the assignment of the wild cards. So I won't consider answer like 'But Sesi is stronger than Perugia', because it's not the point of my post. (By the way, I DO think Sesi is – or at least was, I don't remember the new roster – stronger than Perugia ) But I can consider answer like 'I don't agree with y...

Men's Club World Championship 2017

Quoted from "YavorD" Never mind, I hope that at least an African team will get the last wild card. I really can't imagine that happen, even if I'm sorry for it (and I hope it will happen). If they were willing to have an African team, they could have simply inserted the 'African 2017 Champion' to the list of admitted team... Quoted from "rbdfabio" The wild card should go to Brazil. Sesi and Taubate are stronger than any Italian Team. For me the wild cards (or at least one of the two) should't b...

Women's World Grand Prix 2017

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" With individualism... A team can shift from working as a team to relying on a single player and vice versa. With collectivism... When you do not have a single player who can be that go-to player... You're going to have a lot of problems especially during out of system usually when the pass is not that exceptional. That's my take btw. That's a very interesting point which I mostly share. The single 'champion' is the one that in the difficult moments can step up a...
