CEV Champions League 2018

Quoted from "harboboy" Quoted from "leo2017" Quoted from "harboboy" Rabadzhieva isn't the player for GS, after watching her again and again. She is not delivering anything special to the team. Gs plays better than last time. Vakifbank uses the same roster as the local league! It is better to buy kimberly hill back! What is different with GS? Maybe one more foreigner MB? Which is actually not right, GS sometimes plays with both Ruseva and Jack when 1 of them is changing with the libero. Quoted f...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "sitenoise" 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 t...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "rbdfabio" Quoted from "Matthias" Quoted from "rbdfabio" If you loose a quaterfinal game you are done with the season, same thing when you loose a semi-final series you are done, there`s no 3rd place match in any volleyball league (at least as far as I know) I remember Polish league last season (or maybe the year before, not sure) had classfication matches for every rank, even for 11th Oh ok yeah...and their format is really stupid. There`s no quaterfinal...only semi-finals and then...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "JoanaBG" Quoted from "serdar" Maybe they use the serpentine system only for top 8 and 'draw' rest of the teams Yes, that's how they did it. The rest were divided into four pots with four teams and drawn randomly. The "non-Japanese" half of the draw is obviously stronger. And the system really is a mess, it's too long and the third stage is really pointless. I'd much rather see QFs instead too. Thanks for the clarification! The ranking among ARG, KOR, DOM and TUR is not realistic an...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "Emil" Pool A is ridiculous and OBVIOUSLY the host team is there Why is it a surprise? The host is always seeded as 1 and get the 8th and 9th position in the overall ranking. To me, the odd part is why Argentina is in Pool A but not DOM that is actually the 9th in the world ranking. Maybe they use the serpentine system only for top 8 and 'draw' rest of the teams By the way, I agree on final 16. Apparently, FIVB doesn't want to take the risk of that Japan might be eliminated in such ...

Turkey- VVSL-Vestel Venus Women's League 2017/2018

Quoted from "Sisko95" Quoted from "rbdfabio" First half of the season is done, now we can jump to some conclusions. Despite been only 1.83cm Carol got the most blocks with 40 and she`s ranked 2nd best MB overall, while Eda is #1, Rasic #3. OH - Jerkov ranks #1, Salas #2, Zhu#3. Kosheleva is at #11. OPP - 1# Rahimova, #2 Boskovic, 3# Olesia. Meyrem took the most swings with 462, Olesia 428. Setter - Interesting that Dilik is #1, but not surprising at all as she`s been playing well and next seaso...

Turkey- VVSL-Vestel Venus Women's League 2017/2018

Quoted from "beri" That one wasn't streamed I think. I'm going to say something which I think some people will hate me for but it is my honest opinion. Personally I believe and I think @Canter mentioned it before that Salas would have been a better fit then Kosheleva for GS. She is at this moment much much better in attack then Kosheleva even if people don't like to admit it. There are few player as explosive as Salas in any team at this moment tbh. Also both cant receive so I don't see that as...

Women's Best Scorer in one Match - Senior

Why do two swiss players play as starter in Volero although there are better alternatives in their roster? Is there any rule to necessitate that?

Turkey- VVSL-Vestel Venus Women's League 2017/2018

I still don't change my opinion about Kosheleva and GS. She didn't receive much (only 7 times in a 5 sets match) Neslihan did a good job at reception (kudos to her, such a complete player!) but I can't see GS will resist much against good serving teams like FB or Vakıfbank. (even Beşiktaş that has good servers). Kosheleva could get 40 points in upcoming matches but it doesn't mean that GS will beat top 3 teams with such a vulnerable reception line. Also with underperforming Ruseva, GS is one of ...

CEV Champions League 2018

In theory, we could see final six with Zurich, Developres, Fenerbahçe, Vakıfbank, Kazan and Police. With this horrible draw I hope GS will host Final 4 or at least one of the Italian teams. I think FB is better than both Conegliano and Novara but both teams are the strongest ones after Vakıfbank and FB. To me this 4 teams should be in final 4 but thanks to this horrible draw 3rd and 4th best teams in CL could be eliminated in pool phase On the other hand Volero Zurich has quite high chance to re...

I just checked the broadcasting schedule 18.11.2017 Saturday TRT Spor HD HALKBANK-GALATASARAY 14:00 TRT Turk VAKIFBANK-ÇANAKKALE BLD. This is like 6 times in a row GS's match is being broadcasted I could understand the 3 matches that were against top 3 teams but 6 times in a row is not fair

2017 / 2018 Transfer News

Quoted from "Emil" It looks like Havlickova signed with a Turkish club based in Istanbul, anyone knows which team? She signed with THY (Turkish Airlines) from second division but they are really eager to promote to Venus Sultanlar ligi. Club resolved the contract of Becky Perry to be able to sign with Havlickova. Also Sanja Popovic signed with Samsun Anakent, which is another team from second division. Turkish second division is getting more and more interesting every season.

Germany - VBL 1. Bundesliga 2017/2018

Quoted from "Garvey" Quoted from "Matthias" Double-checking all posts, I don't see anyone calling a player mediocre overall. Flyingdutchman and me were explicitly refering to the players' performances against Aachen. Maybe your understanding of the english language is different from mine. For me "But, except Drpa, they played only mediocre" means except Drpa all other players are mediocre. Good players can play mediocre and this does not make them mediocre. This was quite clear in Matthias's me...

Quoted from "beri" I can't believe Meryem Boz has to receive and she is not even doing that bad tbh better then Kosheleva and Bayramova lol Quoted from "beri" I can't believe Meryem Boz has to receive and she is not even doing that bad tbh better then Kosheleva and Bayramova lol I'm really surprised with odina's performance. She was such a solid receiver in a 2 player reception system in Azerbaijan my. And now she collapse although she has another good receiver such as malesevic By the way I li...

The Rules - your opinion, suggestion

Quoted from "Matthias" In an article with German Volleyball Magazin, FIVB declared the recent rule tests in U23 WCHs as a failure. Obviously they didn't say it in such clear words, but they admit that with 4 sets to 15 the length of a match is just as unpredictable as with 3 sets to 25 and the shortest matches were way too short. The new serve rule turned out to be a big advantage for the receiving team and made rallies shorter rather than longer. However they'll still continue to look for rule...

Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

It is unfair that Poland has two high quality setters while most European teams lack even one (except SRB and ITA) Novara seems intimidating with two big hitters but with all the respect to Piccinini, this 2 players receiving line can not resist against top server teams. Just have a look how Eda single-handedly killed GS's reception line in last match. Let's not forget both Vakıfbank and GS are also very good serving teams. To me, Novara's system is so delicate that in the long rung they won't b...

Quoted from "Matthias" What about the Puertorican player? Is she not coming to Canakkale after all? http://tvf-web.dataproject.com/Competiti…eamID=142&ID=25 She still seems to be in their roster indeed, however she hasn't played any single match with Canakkale yet
