Turkey- VVSL-Vestel Venus Women's League 2017/2018

Vakif is not that unbeatable, if you check stats and watched the match, their serve receive looked terrible. Any team who can serve well and has a good block-defense against Zhu can lock them badly, since Naz sets only to Zhu when the receiving is bad. Im sure FB will be a much better team once the injuries are over but I don't think Natalia will be as efficient as last year. Having KYK in your opposite is not only a relief in serve receive but also she is such a threat to opponents in attacking...

Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

Quoted from "hakin12" Well, Isabelles older sister, Anna Haak (born 1996) is also a highly rated prospect. She is playing for a team in the US college system, NCAA and she has achieved pretty decent numbers so far during her around two year old long campain. Anna is quite a bit shorter, around 180 cm, and plays as an outside hitter. Apart from that there is many other good players now; Rebecka Lazic (Cannet), Alexandra Lazic (Volero Zurich) and the middle blocker Aida Rejzovic (former Bundeslig...

Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

Quoted from "Canter" Quoted from "Toguttt" Quoted from "Canter" how old is Haak ? She is 18. Born in July 1999. thx. so such stats at such a young age,she must be talented! Haak is a more complete opposite than Egonu and Slöetjes in my opinion. Her defensive skills are much better than the other two and she actually received at several rotations when she played in Sweden and did a very good job. I think Egonu and Slöetjes are more explosive than her in attacking but Haak uses her height and tec...

Turkey- VVSL-Vestel Venus Women's League 2017/2018

I agree on Sisko about Busra, especially when you consider how good a hitter Adams is from zone 3 and Busra not being a solid slider...I think they will use Adams-Beyza duo, Busra might come in as serve sub for Adams though, she has a good serve.

Turkey- VVSL-Vestel Venus Women's League 2017/2018

I don't agree that Meliha will be benched in Eczacibasi. She actually spent a whole year in Fener's bench last season and now she has better chances knowing that Hande had a bad summer despite her MVP award in U23. Larson became a burden, not only in attacking but also in receiving last season. So considering the foreign player limitations, I would suggest that Eczacibasi better picks Ognjenovic-Boskovic+Adams as 3 foreigners with Larson in bench, meaning Hande-Guldeniz duo can be starters. Sinc...

Turkey- VVSL-Vestel Venus Women's League 2017/2018

They have to use one of the local OHs or Polen or Cagla unfortunately. With Mia-Natalia, Tomkom-Polina, they have 4 foreigners and only 3 are allowed in the TL. It will be interesting to see how Jan's choices will look like but it seems that he doesnt like to risk setters and goes with experienced options, so I guess he will pick Tomkom. I bet he will use his foreign player choices as Tomkom-Polina and Natalia.

Turkey- VVSL-Vestel Venus Women's League 2017/2018

I agree on most comments, I have exactly the same concerns about GS this season. As USAvolleyball mentioned, this team is pretty similar to the team with Saori-Rabadzhieva as OHs and Montano as OPP. Montano liked high sets too and she had an incredible playoffs with Gamze as setter until she got injured. However I prefer that GS does not change their system as long as the receiving is there. Instead, Kosheleva should remember that there is no stop to learning as a player and she should try somet...

Quoted from "Canter" btw Fenerbahçe and ? both cups (TL and TC )won by Fener FB and Gs would be awesome! Unfortunately it will be FB-Vakifbank. I think they took 2nd of TC instead of TL which is weird

Turkish NT 2017

I don't get all the fuzz about Neriman. She has been such an inconsistent player in her entire career. I think it is somehow related to her psychology. I was so glad when she left GS because even when she plays an amazing match, she always hits straight in the block or out when it is a critical point, like set point. I am thankful for all the time she spent with the NT but I dont think it will be so hard to fill her gap. In the worst case we can always switch one of the opposites to OH like we d...

European Championship 2017 Azerbaijan&Georgia

I actually think that Azerbaijan could win against Netherlands if they had a better coach. He was quite passive in important moments and didnt take the risks on time. It was pretty clear already in the beginning of the match that Samadova was causing problems and Bayramova should have been in much longer. Same with Mammadova, she contributed alot in attacking against Netherlands but against Turkey, she did nothing. I wonder what was so hard for Faig to think that Samadova-Bayramova duo could wor...

European Championship 2017 Azerbaijan&Georgia

Quoted from "dragon" I think she is far from the best slider in the world but overall she must be one of the best middle blockers, there are very very few middle blockers in the world having both blocking and attacking abilities among the best in the world. I agree! I think Robin and Akinradewo are better sliders than Eda but Eda is probably one of the most complete MBs in the world considering how good a blocker she is also. I would actually say Sinead Jack is pretty underrated thinking how a ...

European Championship 2017 Azerbaijan&Georgia

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" Quoted from "beri" 4-20 And how does this competition prove nothing, it is Ech ECH can only prove they are the champions of europe as the name of competition implies.Nothing more and nothing less than that. Why does this really matter to you? I mean, why do you try to trash european volleyball and try to show that is not good while you keep watching it and writing posts here? In other words, I think Asian qualifications are low quality so I simply don't watch th...

European Championship 2017 Azerbaijan&Georgia

Congrats Turkey! Gözde and Naz seem to find their shape now in the very end of the tournament. I still dislike Örge, I hope someone else will take her spot soon. It is sad that Turkey went back to Barbolini's system from 2-3 years ago with Guldeniz/Meliha as receiving opposite. That implies that Turkey couldnt find a replacement for Neslihan since back then Oh god, not Zehra! She is just like a younger and inexperienced version of Kubra. I watched some matches of her playing and she is tricked s...

European Championship 2017 Azerbaijan&Georgia

Wow Congrats Serbia! I agree on Gio's talk today that Serbia is in another level...Simply Serbia did the same what Turkey did to Russia, amazing serves and blocks. I didnt listen what turkish commentators said, they are really stupid anyway, I usually mute when I watch Trtspor but I can tell that that was the best Boskovic performance I watched for a long time, she was incredible and nonstoppable. Go girl! About Turkey, it was clearly a bad idea to come here with 3 MBs and especially picking Bah...

European Championship 2017 Azerbaijan&Georgia

Quoted from "Sidney" Russia's system has been working for many years now. Kosheleva and Goncharova haven't been able to solve the team's problems on their own for too much time. I can't believe everyone is realizing it just now... While I was watching Azerbaijan today, I actually thought that Rahimova would be a much better replacement for Gamova in Russian NT for some reason. Maybe it is because both like to hit from zone 4...

European Championship 2017 Azerbaijan&Georgia

Wow! Amazing job girls!!! At Russian side, I mentioned it since WGP, Russia needs Startseva back desperately. Since she missed CL together with Gamova because of doping issues, Russian volleyball is suffering from lack of decent setters. Filistinskaia is mentally weak and Kosianenko has no skills to play at this level as setter. Funny fact is, another slavic team Bulgaria suffers from the same problem. Oh Meryem! I take all my words back, she was such a beast today and big applaud to her. Guidet...

Turkish NT 2017

Im actually more hopeful of Derya Cebecioglu and she can take Neriman's spot depending on her performance in the next 2 seasons, I think she is Vakifbank's player too and has a very mature hitting technique. Saliha has a very good hitting technique too and is a solid receiver, so she can be our next defensive OH. Tugba will already play in Vakifbank this season, I guess Guidetti will give her quite a lot of time on court looking at Gözde's recent performance and foreigner limit. I am actually no...

Turkish NT 2017

I think Hande's situation is far too ambigious. After she had a great performance in last ECH as opposite, she said that she will continue her career as OH and Eczacibasi also wanted that. Today we see that it was a wrong decision. This summer I think they wanted to shift her to opposite for the NT but some people claimed Nalan Ural was against the idea. To me, it would be a great contribution by Eczacibasi if they used Hande as their main opposite for the last 2 season and transferred a world c...
