I read good things about these three as well!

Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

In an amatorial competition I met a team that willingly used the Mikasa (unlike all the rest of us) to make the opponents struggle in reception... it was really hard to predict when the ball was going to fall, it often felt shorter than you would have expected.

Well, that does make sense to help the teams that play the European Cups. In fact few years ago the male Superlega switched to Mikasa for this reason. The bad thing is that Mikasa is a more difficult ball, so who knows what will happen with the general level of reception...

Italy – Superlega 2017/2018

I thought about Averill too when I was writing my first post! I don't even recall who is the 4th OH, but the second opposite should be Tondo. But I barely saw him playing and I've no idea how he plays (and I think last year he played as MB?).

Italy – Superlega 2017/2018

I don't know if Abdel Aziz is the one that chose to play minimizing the injury or if Giani is the one that forced/asked him to play. I simply read that 'he stayed on court'. Anyway, the MR showed there is a lesion of the abdominal muscles, but it doesn't specify anything about the severity of the lesion and the time required to recover. Do you think – in case he will be out – that Giani will use one of his OHs ad opposite?

No no, Pasini is the one that wrote Hoag had a phisical problem. I would think very less of Lorenzetti if he let Lanza play just because he pretended it. One thing is giving a chance/giving faith to someone, another one is not subbing a player who isn't playing well having a good subs.

Italy – Superlega 2017/2018

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" However...I still felt let down by Lanza. 7 serve faults out of 13 and all the other mistakes he committed. Well, with the serve I lost my hopes. Last year he was getting a bit better at least in PalaTrento, this year he only has some rare good and short runs sometimes (like in the previous match). But this time he also struggled a lot in attack and did few silly/ crucial mistakes. And winning vs Lube without an opposite and with an underperforming OH is impossi...

Doesn't Italian women league plays with Molten (white-red-green, I love this ball) and men Italian Leauge plays with Mikasa (yellow-blue, which I hate)? May be I'm the one having this wrong... CEV and FIVB competition are played with Mikasa, anyway. Blue yellow or green-yellow. Togutt, I love Bianchini, I would love if she'll get a chance in the NT, at least during the new Gran Prix! I think Pietrini will be try there too, but probably not with the idea of using her in the WCh.

Quoted from "Kk15" About Hoag, the Trentino 'organized' fans ('curva' in Italian) said in a Facebook comment "Se Hoag non ha giocato c'è un motivo, e finché la società non lo farà, di sicuro non lo comunicheremo certo noi" = "if Hoag didn't play there's a reason, and until the society won't say it, we definitely won't do it either" Physical problems. Milano from 19-24 to 27-25 vs Ravenna! Here the video! And until the 25-25 there was just one direct error by Ravenna! https://youtu.be/LI7wMCjuwP...

Quoted from "SHAME" About Abbott, she comes from a small university and she was a score machine. I always have some worries when it comes to passing because NCAA uses Molten balls, not those sucking Mikasa Italian Championship uses Molten as well... And Modena doesn't play in Europe, right? Quoted from "Toguttt" she knows the only way to be part of Italian NT is to become an OH. I haven't thought of this. I really hope Gennari will be back this summer, anyway: she seems the most complete to me ...

They were very, very suppo...

Italy – Superlega 2017/2018

First comment for now: I guess it's impossible to win vs Lube without an opposite and with such a lazy serve (Eder is the only one I would save in that compartment)... Quoted from "scarpetta" Why is Lanza playing instead of Hoag? You know I'm a fan of Lanza and I was ok he entered as starter (he was very good in the last two matches, even – incredibly – at serve), but I also wondered why Lorenzetti hasn't put Hoag in ever. So, my guess is he has physical problem or Lorenzetti didn't want to risk...

Italy – Superlega 2017/2018

Quoted from "scarpetta" instead of their own team. That's my point, Monza isn't their team. Most of the crowd was probably from Milan or Lombardia in general. As Latina isn't my team. And when I went there to watch Perugia last year, the hall was full of people from Campania, who came in Latina to see Zaytsev (or Lanza, Giannelli...). Why should they feel oblige to cheer for his opponent? Usually the good actions are cheered anyway, though. And there aren't whistle. (I mean, in Trento the crowd...

Italy – Superlega 2017/2018

Quoted from "scarpetta" I think what separates Giannelli from Christenson is he can adjust his setting choices according to changes in the match. If he sees Zaytsev's good play, his setting will adjust to situation. I hadn't think of that before in comparison to Christenson, but I agree overall. Also last year when Stokr was on fire Giannelli let him rock the game. Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" I still feel Giannelli should improve on pushing his reverse sets better though. Sometimes it's to...

Italy – Superlega 2017/2018

Very interesting scarpetta, thanks! Quoted from "scarpetta" Ngapeth: 6.5/per set (49.2%) .. 7.9/per set (47.7%) so this year Bruno makes his two OHs first and second options. The way they use Ngapeth is only comparable to Abdel Aziz in the league I was surprised to see how much more Bruno uses Ngapeth compared to Orduna, because if I recall well that was one of the mai criticism made to Orduna last year. Quoted from "scarpetta" I got the impression that this year Giannelli is using OHs more than...

I'd no idea Ngapeth played in Russia as well!! BTW, according to Zaytsev tells, he would fit well with the habits May be less well with the Siberian winter, though.

2017 - 2018 transfer rumours

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" And why would Bernardi want to have trouble with his service error rate? Well, if there's a team that can afford Lanza serve errors rate is Perugia Anyway, I don't see him in Perugia as well, but the idea behind it would be keeping Podke, Ata, De Cecco and adding Leon as OH. Quoted from "SHAME" About Lube. I don't know where you found out about Boyer, but I heard Lube's real target is Abdel-Aziz. It seems both rumors may be true: Boyer is 'booked' by Lube (also ...

Quoted from "Umu11" Quoted from "Diesse14" Caprara is officially in Firenze. Pistola isn't anymore the head coach of Sab Legnano.. the team looks more and more hopeless week after week. And They thinkg Caprara is the one going to rescue their team? Haha They didn't fired Bracci for the results, but for not better defined 'locker room' problems (is it a way to say in English as in Italian? Anyway, relationship problems).
