USA - NVA (National Volleyball Association)

Quoted from "beri" Omg ahahaha Team Pineapple! my favorites right away xD In german we have the expression that whenever you make a 4th place or win a meaningless match, that you have won "the golden pineapple"... My favourite surely is Chicago "Lights Out". Will remember this for the next fun tournament

CEV Champions League 2018

Quoted from "YavorD" So far it has turned out great in the domestic league and in the CL qualifiers, but you don't have to be an expert to see that they will suffer immensely against a more physical team. Actually, Sossenheimer seemed to me as the player that Tischer will rely more on, Protopsaltis is a great jumper but his height should and will be a problem. This is why I don't think they will suffer much in defence, Heynen's team normally didn't, but rather in attack, if you ask me. Besides,...

CEV Champions League 2018

Quoted from "YavorD" About the two teams. I don't have super recent news about VfB, I only know that their summer signing, one of the few Bulgarian talents Martin Atanasov, got injured relatively seriously and had to end his contract with Friedrichshafen. I think all other players arrived in Bulgaria and should play. I am curious about Takvam's position tonight as Heynen has been experimenting lately. Neftochimik, on the other side, has two injured players (the MB Petkov and the OH Petrov) but ...

Germany - Volleyball Bundesliga (VBL) 2017/18

Putting aside the "ethical" side of Berlin's setter move, Pujol's transfer could truly develop into a good decision for Berlin. He already came to help in Berlin's cup match, when Düren already led by 2:0. With him on court, Berlin could still turn around the match. Also in yesterdays Bundesliga match against Lüneburg he came in for Kühner in a critical moment and helped Berlin to win the match. Other random observations from the league so far: Friedrichshafen looks like the best team by far, at...

Big betting scandal in Romania

I have always thought that Volleyball could be vulnerable to the betting mafia. Quite low salaries and not the highest public attention in a lot of leagues/countries could easily tempt players/refs to take money for "influencing" a match. I fear, once you start digging, there can be a lot of dirt to be found. I do think, these excessive betting opportunities are a true pain in the a*se for sports in general and Volleyball should rather stay away from partnerships with betting companies......

Is this even legal? (Whole body inside the opponent's floor but feet are lifted maybe?)

FIVB casebook (3.14. page 12 ) exactly describes this situation. Maybe they just updated this So yes, there should have been a call by the ref......

Germany - Volleyball Bundesliga (VBL) 2017/18

Quoted from "Marcus" http://www.volleybalkrant.nl/nieuwsberic…weg-bij-berlijn Dutch article in which Van Haarlem confirms he is forced to leave the club. "The president of the club decided to buy/hire a new setter. Apparently it's possible to do this kind of things when you have the money. The other setter (Kühner) will stay in Berlin, but I´m forced to leave. So, after nearly two months I'm done here. Without even getting a fair chance. One time, I got the chance to play and delivered a solid ...

Brazil NT 2017

Quoted from "saishuu" Quoted from "kondzio" intersting, so his suspension started at March 2016 Not sure when exactly, but most likely, yeah. He probably filed the request around this time. I somehow had 2019 in my mind and it seems that my memory did not trick me. Obviously FIVB initially sent a letter to Brazilian Federation with the wrong date and corrected it now. Leal will be allowed to play for Brazil only from April 2019 source: https://globoesporte.globo.com/volei/not…l-de-2019.ghtml

Germany - Volleyball Bundesliga (VBL) 2017/18

Quoted from "TimHH" ..... Additionally Kühner doesn't seem to embrace his new role as "first setter" . I am afraid van Haarlem won't be able to add much quality from the bench. .... According to WoV the transfer of Pierre Pujol to Berlin is a done deal. Unless there are no injuries involved, this transfer doesn't leave Berlin's season planning in a good light and surely is a slap in the face for Kühner and van Harlem. I haven't followed Pujol during last years but if he is healthy he should imp...

Quoted from "TimHH" Quoted from "powsoff" Apparently Grozer is being repariert in D-land at the moment. Grozer kaputt ? That doesn't sound good. Please let me know, when there is more info available. I hope its not too serious.... Grozer: " I suffered a little tear in the patella tendon. It was treated in Italy and now i have to rest some weeks ....

Germany - Volleyball Bundesliga (VBL) 2017/18

Quoted from "YavorD" I am kind of out of the world right now and I could only follow stats these last few days. Berlin's dreadful start is worth talking about, although we have to admit that their first two matches in the season were against difficult opponents. Dueren should create trouble this campaign. Who knows, after many recent attempts by Moculescu and last year by Heynen, perhaps the time has finally come to see a new champion in Germany. It's way too early now, of course. United Volley...

Poland - PlusLiga 2017/18

Quoted from "bella" Can someone enlighten me and tell me what happened with Jastrzebie in game against Zaksa? Where did this spirit from game against Skra go? Looking at the result Zaksa crushed us, only in 3rd set it looked like oranges woke up to fight. Looks like they still lack a kind of balance. At the moment they are 0:2 down against Resovia. Muzai not really in the game yet and on the other side Rossard with great numbers in the first two sets. Lets see what happens after 10 minute break...

France - Ligue Nationale de Volley 2017-18

Quoted from "Bahkawdi" Quoted from "TimHH" Website: http://www.lnv.fr/9/lam.html There are said to be replays of the matches available. Furthermore special matches will be streamed on the channel of "L'Equipe". We will see how this will play out in the end. Having trouble using the second link. Anyone know if there is a way to access past broadcasts? Can't help unfortunately. Apparantly there is no content so far...... Regarding the matches to be streamed on "Chaine L"Equipe", they say it will ...

2018 New Volleyball League

Quoted from "rbdfabio" One thing that I don`t think it is necessary are the "qualifications" tournaments, for example World League and Grand Prix could simply be used for that matter. Well, participants of WL/WGP now officially get selected by economical standards. So i don't think, this would be workable. What would be about Slovenia and Belgium, for example? Even giving ranking points imho is questionable.... If you want to reduce the schedule, the most simple solution could be to let them pl...

Germany - Volleyball Bundesliga (VBL) 2017/18

Quoted from "TimHH" Season could become difficult for Berlin, unless the old guard (Kromm,Carroll, Kühner) quickly plays the rust out of their bones..... And here we go. Berlin lost in straight sets to Düren . Carroll and Kromm need to get their act together, otherwise further losses will follow. Today the new austrian/bavarian wildcard team of Hypo Tirol Haching will make their first impression in Bundesliga with their match in Friedrichshafen (14.30 CET, TV production). stream: http://sportde...

2018 New Volleyball League

Well, with this discussion i feel a bit like Bill Murray in "groundhog day". Always the same, again and again..... I can hardly understand, how one can't see, that a better compromise between club volleyball and NT season needs to be found. And no, that doesn't mean "getting rid of WL" or however they will call it. Just a better compromise and a more reasonable schedule than we have right now... Just as i think that you twist and turn the facts as you need them, i made some comments below.... Qu...

Quoted from "Noncommittal" http://www.fivb.com/en/about/news/fivb-a…league?id=73085 Confirmation of the new World league. And the child's name is going to be "Volleyball Nations League". And this time, really and for sure, it is going to be the best and most innovative ever . They also announced a kind of "Challenger League" without giving further details yet.....
