2017 / 2018 Transfer Rumors & Discussion

Quoted from "pappi" Beijing BAIC Motors invites another USA middle blocker, but the name has not been officially announced yet. It is widely believed that the new comer would not be Harmotto or Dixon. I guess it could be either Paige Tapp (USNT member in 2017) or Wopat (Japan V League in 2016-17), lets see. any news from other sources or rumors, guys? isn't Dixon officially in Monza?

Women's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Quoted from "sitenoise" Forgive this dumb question--it's what I'm good at-- Do all the teams shout the name of their country to end the circle of hands huddle at the end of timeouts? I heard USA do that but can't hear well enough to know if Japan shouts "Nippon" or China "Zhōngguó" or whatever. Heck, I don't even know what some of these countries call themselves obviously not

Women's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Quoted from "sitenoise" Quoted from "rbdfabio" I think China will play the whole game with the starting 6. I think once China has deprived Japan of a medal they'll bring on the bench. This is CHN v JPN in Japan not like going home early at the WGP. Who knows, maybe this tournament has meaning for them. CHN could even start with some bench but if they aren't winning, they'll change. My guess, anyway. Don't bother guessing, CHN will use the starting 6 as usual for all the other cases in the world...

Women's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Quoted from "rbdfabio" Quoted from "ryleybarnes" Haters can stay pressed but Zhu is already a legend. Nuff said! I was going to write on my original post this " I know European fans won`t agree with this", But I did not write it down because I did not want to start any drama. But yeahh....u know if Zhu was European they would all be calling her the greatest already. I guess it does not count because she needs to win the ECH to be considered right?? as they call all these tournaments worthless L...

Women's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Quoted from "sitenoise" Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" this tournament won't have any world ranking points or continental ranking points which will help in seeding or qualification for bigger tournaments. I can't help it.I'm more romantic than that. Did you see this game. The faces of the players? Seemed important to them. Players will be exited when facing strong teams. In case of strong, strong.

Women's World Grand Prix 2017

Quoted from "sitenoise" Quoted from "Sisko95" I've heard him before, I think he did some of World Cup 2015. I think his name is Clayton Lucas It looks like he's the guy. I may unbury my Twitter account and send him a tweet thank you. For someone like me who's just learning the game he was a gem. Another name I'd like to thank is Monica De Gennaro. I noticed a few of us here, myself included, refer to her as "the Italian Libero". Let's learn her name Those of you keeping score at home may know I...

Women's World Grand Prix 2017

Quoted from "ST2008" In case the match was scheduled first in the poo Quoted from "ST2008" Quoted from "NobodyKnows" I totally disagree on the thank-you-Zhu-Ting-thing. What should we expect from the Olympic champions playing on home turf in front of 11,000 fans? Should they rest their best players in a F6? Should they tank? It would be a shame to say the least. 'Ok. There are 11,000 people supporting us out there. Let's rest our best players and play to lose'. Besides, why should you rest your...

Women's World Grand Prix 2017

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" So sad to see teams losing becauss of injuries. For Italy... they have to take this cause the game just basically opened up for them. it's still hard to say. I believe Chinese will fight with what they have as always.

Women's World Grand Prix 2017

Quoted from "Gomez4" Quoted from "sitenoise" I think some of us here remarked that Xiaotong Liu seemed to have disappeared as the tournament went on (after a good showing at Montreux and the Prelims here). So sure, Zhu Ting gets to be the ultimate hero but she wouldn't have gotten the chance were it not for Xiaotong's block out attack followed by an ace serve ... and then two more serves that hit the net on their way over to get to 14-14. Let's give Xiaotong some love classic! what a come back!...

Chinese NT 2017

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" Does anyone have the name of that handsome assistant on China's side? Is he a former player? What's his favorite food? And other stuff like his age? FIVB website should have the detail info of the teams including staff?

Women's World Grand Prix 2017

Quoted from "samsara" I hope the Brazilian team will play in the semifinals, they are much eager and working pretty hard to get there incl. the animated coach, Ze... amidst all the hardships and limitation they're still displaying the vigor and extra passion for this sport! I have confidence that the host will field the necessary line-up to not give the free pass to the Dutch team... moreover three teams from Europe in the semi are simply too many... rather not healthy for the women's volleybal...

Quoted from "ST2008" Am I the only one who confuse Michelle Bartsch-Hackley (USA no 14) with Kimberly Hill? some of th players take one year off from NT. I think Kim Hill will be back for WCH.

Women's World Grand Prix 2017

Brazil played so good in the first half of set 1, but I had no idea what happened after then... I expected a close match... but this only happened at the last moments... Serbia vs USA match was like another version of semifinal of Rio 2016 tho.
