Men's World Championship 2018

Quoted from "serdar" The whole formula is just to be sure that hosts can reach to semis The possibility of getting surprise results is the part that makes WCh interesting, that's why they should have stick to Quarterfinals and even better, to final 16 The whole formula exists to ensure there are as many games as possible, unfortunately. If the hosts want to cheat, they will fix the draw, not the formula. Reference - Italy at the home men's WCH in 2010. This time Italy is hosting again but not a...

2017 Norceca

The topic has been discussed in the Men's WCH 2018 thread. EDIT: It was a continental championship, I am sorry, I didn't realize that. I thought it was just a qualifier.

Men's World Championship 2018

Quoted from "rbdfabio" Puerto Rico and Cuba did not make to the States because of the hurricane Maria. I`m surprised you guys have not heard about it, the Hurricane almost destroyed the whole Island of Puerto Rico. And the whole Caribbean has been dealing with Hurricanes. I guess it is unknown the dates and location for the next phase, they gotta wait and see when Puerto Rico and Cuba will be ready to play. We know about the hurricane, of course. I would never imagine they would still allow the...

Men's World Championship 2018

The main qualifiers in North America are through. Source FIVB The tournament didn't go without surprises. The Dominican Republic haven't been a factor even in NORCECA, so their straight-set win against Mexico in the semis and eventual WCH berth can be considered a surprise. They also have a few experienced players but not all played in the qualifier these past days. I don't even know if Batista and Contreras, for instance, are still NT players. Or active players, for that matter. Which brings us...

Bulgarian Superliga 2017-2018

Quoted from "SHAME" Bulgarian Superleague website is quite weird, but I found the result of the Supercup match (first edition, right?): Neftochimik 2010-Dobrudzha 07 3-1 (21-25, 25-15, 25-18, 25-23). Thanks for the update I am still waiting for the stats sheet, I will post it once it becomes available. The best scorers are Valentin Bratoev with 25 points for the winners, whereas Dobrudzha's opposite Zhulien Georgiev finished with 21. No, it isn't the first edition, by the way. We've had it for ...

2017 - 2018 transfer rumours

Quoted from "YavorD" Quoted from "TheDiplomat" Does anyone know where the following players will play this year: Marcus Bohme, Armin Mustedanovic, Ndo Mote, Michael Brinkley, Eric Fitterer, Maksim Zhigalov and Maksim Buculjevic? Zhigalov came in as a substitute for Belogorie against Fakel over the weekend. No info about the rest, though. Some might have extended their contracts with their respective teams. Marcus Bohme is rumoured to have signed with Olympiacos for the new season, no official c...

Russian Superleague 2017/2018

Although he got appointed as an assistant to Gennagy Shipulin (as all his recent ancestors in Belgorod), Gheorghe Cretu sat on the bench as a head coach for today's match versus Zenit St. Petersburg. We know how it goes over there, powsoff described the situation pretty well. It means that Belogorie hired a full-time, experienced coach. He may not be a big name, but it is an upgrade to the experiment that had been going for some time. I could only watch the last set of the match tonight and I sa...

Men's Club World Championship 2017

Pool A is stronger indeed. But not because of Shanghai, but rather because of Skra in Pool B And Cruzeiro in A, of course. However, if Shanghai do show up with Lyneel and Conte, things will get interesting. This might turn out to be one of the best, if not the best, World Club Championship we've had in a while. Still, I find it a bit unfair that there is no North American team here. Yeah, I know, popularity and drama and class and stuff.

Men's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Quoted from "ossubtus" wow. vettori got an ace in first set when he clearly foot-faulted but JPN coach didn't bother to challenge it even though players were calling out the foot-fault. I thought the same, too! And I remember the Chinese NT head coach during the 2014 WCH seemed to refuse to use the video challenge system no matter how appropriate it could have been on a number of occasions. This is one of the impressions I got while watching Asian teams compete in intercontinental events. Is it...

Tokyo 2020 Qualification rules

Quoted from "saishuu" Quoted from "rbdfabio" I think the Olympics should have the Host plus the TOP 11 best teams, I don`t care if they are all from Europe, America or Asia, if the 11 teams happens to be all from the same continent, so be it. The Olympics is not hosted by FIVB, which means it is not like the WCH or any other event where it is nice and smart to have countries from all over to attract sponsors and fans. If WL/GP does not have continental spot, why would the most important tournam...

Russian Superleague 2017/2018

Quoted from "powsoff" Quoted from "YavorD" Ok, so I opened the stats sheet from Belogorie's game, played a day later than the rest, and I was shocked to find out that Grankin had signed with Shipulin's team How, when, and why? powsoff, we need you. I am wondering how I missed probably the biggest internal transfer in Russia this summer. I saw both Antipkin and Strilchuk in action for Dinamo against Zenit SP and thought that Grankin had been given a few days rest. Although all the other NT membe...

Men's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Quoted from "Kk15" Quoted from "YavorD" I have always thought that Lanza won't know what to do if there are no blockers (respectively, fingers and hands) against him True Unless we're talking about the pipe Of course, I was talking about his first-line attack in general. The Italian, and also his, pipes work great!

Men's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Itay vs. Iran wasn't technically a great match but it was a very entertaining one. It would appeal to those who like longer rallies, both teams dug a lot in defence and struggled at times in attack. A lot of unforced errors, but also a good game overall for both setters. Although Marouf kind of blacked out in the middle of the 4th set, committing two brutal mistakes in a row, he may have won the "battle" with Giannelli. If you think about it, we can find a lot of similarities between this Italia...

Men's European Championship 2017

Quoted from "rbdfabio" Quoted from "YavorD" Quoted from "rbdfabio" Quoted from "dragon" The most boring Ech ever......none of the team are playing at their optimal level, maybe Germany is closest to its best form. It's rare for me to find a 5-set match boring. For the individual awards, yes Kaliberda is playing good but I think Kovacevic deserved the award more as he really played a pivotal role in his team. Grankin is doing an excellent job except the final but Kampa is the second-most importa...
