Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

Quoted from "JoanaBG" Brankica talked a bit about her life in Japan. She admitted she wasn't sure she was going to get her passion and motivation back so quickly after winning the ECh gold so recently, but when she got to Japan, she had such a warm welcome and everyone was so nice to her that she immediately found her groove again. The difference compared to the last time she played in Japan is that she's now more mature and knows what she can do and what's expected of her. There are a lot of y...

13:00 Denso Airybees v Ageo Medics ... 3–1 13:00 Toray Arrows v JT Marvelous ... 1–3 15:00 NEC Red Rockets v Hisamitsu Springs ... 0–3 15:00 Toyota Body Queens v Hitachi Rivale ... 2–3 Densio is slowly but surely inching their way up in the standings behind solid play from Nabeya and the Caucasian. Nothing spectacular but reliable enough to keep them competitive. Ageo, dunno what's ailing them, although Kondo is looking a little sleepy and Carcases just stands around when she's not killing it. T...

NEC could win this game against Hisamitsu if they keep Shimamura in at MB and Yamaguchi at setter.

I really enjoyed that game. JT is fun. More fun when they are winning, and more fun when Kanasugi is out there. She's a blast. Not so good as an OP, but who's counting. Great to see her bonding with Brankica. And I'm liking #1, Akutagawa the 98 pound MB. Takes balls. She's cute, too. Kurogo is slumping bad. If she would of had even a decent game, Toray coulda won. Whatever Horikawa is smoking she should keep smoking it. She's on fire.

Quoted from "Canter" seems Toyota's captain's injury affected the balance of the team badly... Yeah, and I think "balance" is the key word there. Takahashi wasn't a big big scorer but she's good enough to keep opponents honest. And she handled a good chunk of reception. Neriman appears to be healthy and in good shape but it's too much to ask her to swing as much as she did last night in every game. I just looked-- 79 swings! 46.8 % success. She had no reception.

Thanks for the additional info. This is my first season of watching V.League. I came to it with a bias in favor of Shiori Aratani and Nanami Hirose over Yamauchi, but Yamauchi is the one making an impression. She's giving 150%. I like your comparison to Mai Yamaguchi. Quoted from "Nghiphong" A bit out of topic but you will appreciate her more on receiving that much balls as she first started as a MB and only changed to Opposite position permanently 2 yrs ago as she decided to pursue a profession...

Quoted from "rbdfabio" JT has another injury, Yuka Kanasugi ( but her jersey says Kitsui) I hope isn`t anything bad At least it does not look bad. It's #4 Kitsui who went down. Kanasugi replaced her and was pretty much invisible

13:00 Hisamitsu Springs v Denso Airybees ... 3–1 13:00 Toyota Body Queens v Toray Arrows ... 2–3 15:00 Hitachi Rivale v JT Marvelous ... 0–3 15:00 NEC Red Rockets v Ageo Medics ... 3–0 Match of the night was the 5-setter Toyota v Toray. Pretty evenly played game down to the 18-16 match point challenge. Toray is upping their game while Toyota is sorely missing their Captain Takahashi. Neriman must have swung 100 times. I'll bet she was close to 50% successful but geez! Nobody else to score for th...

This receiving thing is complex and intriguing. It seemed to me that in the last few NEC games OP/OH #13 Misaki Yamauchi was receiving a lot more. Sure enough, when I looked up those Kurogo receiving numbers, I also learned that in the receiving aspect for NEC, in the first four games it was pretty much Koga=30 / Yamauchi=20, then, against: Toyota Yamauchi=50 / Koga=5, Toray Yamauchi=24 / Koga=19, Denso Yamauchi=56 / Koga=19. That's a dramatic turnaround. Maybe it's why I've been noticing Yamauc...

Quoted from "rbdfabio" I have not watched every Toray game, but the ones I`ve watched the other OH Kadie struggles receiving and they try hiding her from receiving as much as possible and Kurogo covers her, that`s why she receiving a lot, and Kurogo is their man weapon so teams will serve on Kurogo as much as they can. And sometimes they will have take Kadie out and have a OH receiver specialist come in to receive and last night I watched the tie break Toray vs Hitachi and they actually replace...

Good games. The JT v Ageo game came down to foreigner v foreigner so it wasn't as fun for me. It's great to see Toray playing well. They've upped their defense and are serving well. Horikawa seems like she's on a mission. Good for them, that's three wins in a row. Don't kn...

I'm not a stats loving guy, at all, but I was bored so I looked at some numbers ... Up to this point in time the player who has received the most serves is Love, After Dark with 191. She has a success rate of 53% which is ranked 14th. No surprise that Arisa Sato (66 receives) and Shinnabe (62) are ranked 1 & 2. My question, I'll ask again: Is Love, After Dark receiving so many serves because she's being targeted by the other team, or is she just kick-ass at the job?

Quoted from "rbdfabio" there`s another channel, Volleyball is my passion and they had Hisamitsu vs Ageo. I've been double dipping between Volleyball Cup and Volleyball is My Passion. The Passion guy streams from the Betting site with three Passion logos trying to cover stuff up. Volleyball Cup streams from Sport365 or something and might be a tiny bit better stream, but it's less cluttered, less logos, no betting odds. Unfortunately, Volleyball Cup only streams 2 of the 4 games per night. Don't...

Quoted from "rbdfabio" I think Mihajlovic might have been reading your posts, because seams like she changed her attitude, last night she was smiling, cheering, chatting with everyone, just having fun. And I really liked their game, they had a great chemistry. I totally noticed that last night.

Toray just clobbered the Red Rockets. They were firing on all cylinders. Digging everything, serving really tough, Horikawa was killing it. Hisamitsu is up 2 - 1 over Ageo

Quoted from "rbdfabio" I would think Watanabe would be fully recovered and ready to play already this season. I`m excited to see Nagaoka back. It's a drag not being able to know anything about what's going on with injured players. Have you seen anything about the status of Watanabe or Nagaoka?

Quoted from "Canter" is Nabeya from Deenso an NT member ? Yes she is. Usually comes off the bench and starts a fire. Quoted from "Canter" imo,transfering a foreigner OPP or OH should come first for japenese clubs.i wouldnt transfer a foreigner MB unless i did have great wing spikers etc..of course block is imporant but a foriegner MB doenst seem to make a big difference in japan Big tall OH foreigners can help Japanese teams win games and they do make a difference. But that's why I generally do...

Quoted from "rbdfabio" Oh ok, #5 Mika Shibata, setter is the one that got injured. And that explain why in the game against Denso Mihajlovic was not getting any back row attacks, the backup setter is not used to set her back there yet.. I hope Shibata comes back soon. I think #7 Misaki Tanaka is the main setter, but I don't know who had been doing a better job of feeding Mihajlovic. It was Tanaka who prompted Mihajlovic to give her the kiss I wrote about after the first game against Hitachi. Sp...
