European Championship 2017 Azerbaijan&Georgia

Quoted from "SHAME" Quoted from "Insider" a team may look perfect until its weakness is found. Ex: Serbia before Olympic final. My opinion is that Serbia's weakness is mihajlovic, as a spiker she is not as dominant as Boskovic or Zhu Ting. her reception is mediocre, and she is often out of energy after 2 or 3 sets. So, just target Maha on the serves and blocks. I agree thas she gets tired quickly, but Zhu Ting passing is close to 0, Brankica at least tries and she is better digger. Zhu Ting's g...

An Jiajie is really terrible. He keeps playing his starters even though they are not 100% healthy. Zhu played with a nosebleed. Other starters also have minor injuries like back and leg. The bench should be enough to win all the games. Lang Ping really needs to find another coach as replacement.

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "ossubtus" sure, you don't want any upsets. but for sure they could have rested zhu ting, zhang changning and yuan xinyue for these matches. It is up to coach and players to decide if they want to play or not. Out of respect for opponents, maybe Zhu wants to play all teams. Kazakhstan's captain was excited to see Zhu showed up. I wish the bench would play all the matches but that is out of fans control.

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

You always bring your A team for World tournament qualifications because you can't afford any upsets even though your opponents are much weaker. Korea lost to Kazakhstan in 2014 with KYK so upsets can happen.

The Rules - your opinion, suggestion

Game rules are fine. Just need to change qualification rules to make competition better.

Quoted from "tomen" Quoted from "jetmasters" Wonder what happened to Li Yingying. She disappeared after the 2015 U18 tournament and have not been heard since. She only played the National Games junior division recently. It's a mystery. Li Ying-ying played Chinese League 16/17 as the third OH after Mihajlovic and Chen Li-yi. Chinese League 16/17 Is Tianjin still not willing to release her? This time her name is not on the training list so there is speculation of her being blacklisted.

Wu Han made the training camp. Hope she makes the team. Good luck to the rest of the new players as well.

Quoted from "beri" And here you are still being This conversation is stupid and more meaningless then U23 and WGCC combined lets just agree to disagree? On-topic: I was criticizing Zhu a lot last season but I have to say she is really starting her road to being a legend. Only thing is I hope it is not affecting the rest of the China players since all sets are to Zhu and she even covers a lot of reception lately. I can already see some players losing confidence and dedication. China although ofc...

Quoted from "serdar" Quoted from "jetmasters" Quoted from "beri" Ok, do you want a sticker now? At least try to defend your point of view instead of sarcasm. This tournament doesn't even have the best U23 players from top teams. It is for those who got demoted or failed to solidify their spot in their respective national teams to make an impression for future selection. Possibly the best generation in 2013 U20 WC which includes Zhu, Boskovic, and Gabi didn't even play in this event because they...

Quoted from "beri" Ok but you are being completely off here. My response was actally mainly to rdbfabio not even the Chinese who keeps mentioning how unimportant everything is after people disagreed with him. If you read my posts carefully you will understand my point. Bye If you think U23 is not a consolation tournament, at least bring in valid arguments and not criticize a fanbase because you are triggered by your own bias. This U23 tournament is meaningless because it was newly added in 2013...

Quoted from "beri" 'Consolation tournament' ahaha and U20 is only important bcs you won it cmon at least admit your bias. Hande Baladin skipped the U20 tournament while she seems more then excited to play in this U23 Wch. Enough said to me. U23 was implemented in 2013 so it is a consolation tournament in a way for those that didn't win in U18 and U20. Feel free to disagree. Most teams don't even send their top players. It is more of a evaluation of whether players will get selected to their sen...

FIVB U23 World Championship - 2017 |

Brazil will just need to beat Cuba in any sets to advance since they will have better set ratio 16-8 to Bulgaria's 17-9 if they win 4-3 against Cuba.

Quoted from "serdar" Quoted from "samsara" Quoted from "jetmasters" China's bench can easily win this qualifying tournament so Zhu is only there as insurance. The random team during Asian Championships managed to get 4th place so the group China is in is relatively weak. If An can't win with the bench, it only means he's too incompetent. As for U23, it's pretty much a meaningless tournament since it was newly added a few years back so winning it is not important like U18 and U20. Think of it as...

Still possible to qualify if Thailand upsets Dominican in 6 or less sets and China beats Argentina in 6 or less sets. Anyway this tournament is good to evaluate potential players to select for senior team. Liu Yanhan and Yao Di were selected by winning the crown few years back. This year Song Meili and Wang Yunlu proved themselves to be not senior team material so I think they are done in getting selected into A team. They were part of B teams before but I think it is time to say goodbye.
