Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

Quoted from "beri" Thanks for the info and the video link @sitenoise obviously another Toyota supporter here. I am planning to watch the 2nd part of the season since so many great players are in this league now and Japanese volleyball is already quite enjoyable. The low quality stream is all we get from Japan. Or rather somewhere else, but that's it. You may not like it. I've watched some Turkish League matches and am jealous. Have a look at this post. It's the schedule with scores and links to...

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

Quoted from "Canter" Quoted from "sitenoise" Quoted from "Canter" @sitenoise, can you say about the formula of the league ? Uhm, I'm a new guy, not sure what you mean by "the formula" of the league. Like ... how will the playoffs and points be calculated? If that's it, maybe this will help: The top six teams at the end of the regular season will advance to the Final Stage, which will run from February 10th to 28th. In the Final Stage, the team with the best record and points at the end will be ...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

The girl in the kimono (Saori Sakoda) put a little sticky stuff on the ARG ball so the other former Japanese NT player who had to pick one would know which one to pick. That’s easy.

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "leo2017" Fivb world grand prix is just a practise arena for young players~~! Did you watch any of it? Sure, some teams give playing time to underlings, but that's why it's an important tournament, imho. Go watch the CHN v NED match and report back on the "just a practice arena" theory. One of the better endings to a game I've seen. People probably credit Zhu TIng for landing about nine kills in a row to finish it, but it was Liu Xioatung and her elephant balls who scored a block ou...

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

I'm not writing off Hitachi yet. Numbers are only a part of the story. They have skilled players. It's clear that JT is the team having the most fun. That's why they are winning. Yeah, Brankica is a monster, but they look like a TEAM that is playing together. Interesting about Kitsui. I guess they brought in Megura because Kanasugi wasn't quite doing it in Kitsui's absence. We'll see how it plays out.

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

Just catching up on last night's games ... NEC Red Rockets v Denso Airybees ... 1–3 (15-25, 25-21, 22-25, 22-25) Something occurred to me about defending champs NEC: Left-handed MB Nami Sagawa also retired along with Akari Oumi this year. Sagawa was only 21. She was part of the magical team that won the 2016 Asian Club Championship (sans foreigner). She might have been able to help with the MB Ueno problem. Wonder what happened. NEC has been playing setter #14 Shiori Tsukada most of the time thi...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

I'd love to see a tournament that was March Madness style win or go home. Boom! That's what I grew up on. The system as it is seems tortured and convoluted ... more, or less, because Japan has lots of money and are charming hosts. I get that. But it is what it is. The overwhelming consensus for this year's tournaments was that Montreux was a circus sideshow, WGP was unimportant, ACh--gimme a break, WGCC was meaningless, ECh praise the lord, and now the WCh is a joke. Seems sad. But it is what it...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "brahmin" FIVB changed the seeding to only host +top 7 teams. Last two tournaments it was host + top 11. I think that the extra row gave the tournament a little more randomness. Maybe I misunderstand you--which is likely--but how is seeding the third row through random draw less random than seeding it 1-11? Or are you saying the randomness of seeding it randomly makes it less interesting/important? When the pools were posted here as 1-11 people whined about that. Then the official p...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "jetmasters" Teams can lose a match each round and still have a chance for gold. It all comes down to stamina. Which works in the favor of the host as well. It's a total conspiracy. Unless larger people with more weight to lug around really do use less energy doing it . lol

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

It's hard to make it through the week waiting for Friday's games. I watched a couple Turkey League games with that team that starts with F that Nootsara plays for. They played against Zhu TIng and against Boskovic. I thought they would look a lot better than the Japanese teams, seeing that they are these world-wide all-star teams. Hisamitsu is probably the only Japanese team that could beat one of these Turkish monsters but they aren't that much better. They make mistakes too, and get blocked, a...

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

We don't disagree that Hitachi's numbers are bad. I'm saying that if you watch them, they don't look like a group of yahoos who don't know what they are doing, making silly mistakes, etc. They are quite enjoyable to watch. NEC has been playing setter Tsukada and MB Ueno (after a brief fling with Aratani) this year. If a game gets out of hand that they think they can salvage a win from they bring on Yamaguchi and Shimamura. Shimamura didn't play that much over the summer. I think she's playing a ...
