2017 FIVB World League

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" Looks like a tactical loss for Brazil imo. They get to train their bench and at the same time helping a weak team go to the final round. Not bad. Murilo should've played better. He was probably nervous starting ahead of Bruno. I have two questions for you. 1. How exactly does it look like tactical loss? What are the common patterns when Brazil plays to lose? Specific models of serving, block-defense or other behavior that you could distinguish as uncommon after ...

European Championships 2015 - hosts Italy and Bulgaria

Quoted from "B. Moreira" Slovenia made some mistakes in the end of 2nd set. Juantorena is the best player in Italy. The game is really good. Juantorena is the best player in the World /or at least one of the few on top/

You have to be complete iliterate to think that greek philosophy, on which civilization is based /and much of the science/ is the same as sprititual healing talk. I suggest to read something of the greek dead guys, may it be medicine, mathematics or logic.

Quoted from "ossubtus" is this a balkan thing? crovolley thinks everybody hates CRO, deian thinks we hate BUL. just because sometimes we don't pay attention, doesn't mean we are disrespecting a team. i never thought i'd hate a coach more than rezende, but heynen has taken that prize now... It is probably a general Balkan thing

European Championships 2015 - hosts Italy and Bulgaria

No one is obliged to like our team. Even my wife said they play boring game this championship. Of course with full team and possibly Stoychev as coach /over the dead body of Lazarov - one more plus/ the team will be really attractive for the fans of power volleyball, but in this set of players the best part is the blocking /so the fans of blocking should like us/ France play much more attractive volleyball in the last years, it is normally to bе liked more from purely volleyball aspect. I just h...

European Championships 2015 - hosts Italy and Bulgaria

A lot of surprises today, of course not Russia losing, they didn't have good year. Slovenia always had potential to cause upset, but didn't succeeded until today (Children of Glenn Hoag) . Poland was exhausted mentally from World Cup, as I wrote before - if you don't take a place, you should worry in the ECH, unfortunately. Germany was a surprise, I didn't expected Todorov/Aleksiev combo to break Grozer in two matches in a row /Aleksiev did incredible single block vs Grozer to get him out of the...

Quoted from "B. Moreira" This is a problem of volleyball. People just want to watch the games of their own country. They have no interest in watch a good volleyball game. Not everyone. I watch other matches, unfortunately I coudln't see them live thanks to an injury,

Quoted from "rugby" Quoted from "B. Moreira" I hope Salparov can be ok for next match Ivanov is a better player imo. I hope he will start vs Ger/Bel. +10 from me.

European Championships 2015 - hosts Italy and Bulgaria

Quoted from "Diesse14" I'm really sorry for yesterday's result, I fear France and I consider it one of the best teams nowadays for their style of play. Anyway in the first two sets Italy managed to stop them, especially in the second one where Ngapeth went a bit in confusion... then I don't what it really happened, but now our road is harder! I believe this guys can beat Finland but especially Russia but we'll need a perfect performance! I see a good physical condition, I hope that after yester...

European Championships 2015 - hosts Italy and Bulgaria

Bulgaria hasn't lost on purpose in volleyball yet. It's the one positive thing in the last medalles years. About Germany, I don't hate the team, but I would punch the coach in the face If I have an opportunity in Sofia. One would be enough. I don't know what Plamen did to the players, but with so many injuries it is clear he doesn't know how to prepare them both physically and technically, which is surprising, having seen him in Turkey in Russia as good coach. Belmeken, belmeken, the graveyard o...

European Championships 2015 - hosts Italy and Bulgaria

Can anyone explain why my favourite player Todorov was not changed with Nikolov after having 0 blocks and poor attack for 4 sets in a row? Furthermore, his block touch was also very poor today. Btw, the dutch setter is best cuban setter I've ever seen

Quoted from "Kaziyski" Quoted from "Matthias" Dutch backup setter looks like a maniac. Van Harskamp boosting teams morale Astonishing match, lot of great points and turnovers but I'm not impressed with Bulgarians. They are the weakest team in QF's and now I fully understand Heynen's decision to lose vs Holland I don't understand it. It is not fair play to chose your opponents by losing on purpose. Every coach that does has the morale of cockroach.

European Championships 2015 - hosts Italy and Bulgaria

Quoted from "TimHH" Whatever comes next, i don't think that i will ever be able to forget them this crap...... Germany is the second northern country that loses on purpose after Poland vs Slovakia iN ECH 2011. I ddin't expected that from them. This is normally something for southern countries as mentality. I hope Bulgaria doesn't do the same at certain point P.S. It is normal to prefer Bulgaria, after so many missing players, Sokolov, Skrimov, Valentin Bratoev ./who was deciding in Baku/ and wi...

People from Varna always brag how they are the real volleyball fans, not Sofia. Well, today we saw exactly what fans are they, may be of our team, but not of our sport. We should send free tickets to Poland, where the real volleyball fans are.

There is no such thing as "most optimal". Optimal means best solution. When you find better solution, it becomes the new optimal one.

2015 World Cup - Japan - 9/8

Someone wrote here that no one expected Italy to get something here after the problems at the WL. I expected it and wrote it two weeks ago - Zaytsev and Juantorena /their infair advantage/ are making them favorite. Btw, FIVB officials wouldn't pass elementary logic test with me as a teacher. 3 medals and 2 quotes for the OG = WTF
