2013 / 2014 Transfer News

I heard rumours that Vôlei Amil is interested in hiring a star from abroad, names like Grun, Sokolova, Skowronska and Kim were mentioned, but it is more likely for Amil to hire a strong receiver for the OH/OPP position. Natalia and Tandara are not good receivers. They can also hire a foreign middle-blocker. I would love to see either Harmotto or Furst playing in Brazil. It is sad to see that neither Paula, Mari or Fernandinha are receiving offers from Brazilian teams. Paula even offered herself ...

Brazil NT 2013

It is too early to predict if Sheilla or Jaqueline will be able to maintain their level of performance in 4 years as well as it is too early to predict if Brazil's team will be a real candidate for winning gold in Rio de Janeiro OG. Overall, all teams are getting better and better. In the mid-90s there were only a handful of teams which seemed to fight with Cuba for the most important titles: Russia, Brazil, USA, and China. All the other teams were in a lower level. Last decade Italy entered thi...

Brazil NT 2013

So far, 14 players were called for Brazil's NT. I believe Juciely, Natália and Gabi will join Brazil's NT after the Montreux Volley Masters cause they will play the South American Championship next week. Then Brazil's roster is likely to be the following: Setters: Claudinha (Vôlei Amil), Dani Lins (SESI SP), Fabiola (Sollys/Nestlé) Liberos: Camila Brait (Sollys/Nestlé), Suelen (SESI SP) Middle-blockers: Adenizia (Sollys/Nestlé), Angélica (Vôlei Amil), Bia (SESI SP), Juciely (Rio de Janeiro) Outs...

2013 / 2014 Transfer News

Jaqueline's permanence in Osasco depends on her husband's permanence in SESI. I think both of them are likely to stay, just like it happened with Dani Lins and Sidão. That being said, the Osasco's decision of hiring one or two foreign players will depend on Jaqueline's permanence. Tandara is being disputed by SESI, Campinas and Unilever. I've read that SESI and Campinas offer is way higher than Unilever's.

2013 / 2014 Transfer News

Quoted from "José" Quoted from "joanamss" I confess Ill be a bit disapoited with Natália If she really decides to leave Unilever. I usually dont mind this transfere And I understand is part of their job, even If is for the rival Team or whatever. But this particular case..I just think it would be a bit ungratefull from her. She had the tumor surgery...Unilever decides to bet on her anyway...then in pre-season they discovered the surgery made by NT staff (aka Amil staff) were terible And Unileve...

2013 / 2014 Transfer News

In Brazil there are rumours that Garay have really high offers from abroad. People is saying she is going to Rabita Baku, but they also mention offers from Russia. As for the Osasco team, the starters will be pretty much the same: Adenizia, Thaísa, Camila Brait, Sheilla and Fabiola. Jaqueline is likely to have her contract renewed as well. If the Osasco team could sign with a top foreign player then they will keep as strong as in the last season. Sesi-SP seems to be getting stronger. Elisangela ...

The best player/coach 2012 - voting

My choices: Female players: 1 - Sheilla Castro (for the amazing QF against Russia and for being Brazil's NT most regular player during the 2012 season) 2 - Kim Yeon-Kong (for carrying the Korean NT on her back) 3 - Fê Garay (for being a decisive OH even being 1.81-meter tall) Coach - José Roberto Guimarães Male players: 1 - Dmitriy Muserskiy (for being so decisive in the OG Golden Medal Match) 2 - Murilo Endres (for being rather short and even so such a complete player) 3 - Bartosz Kurek (for th...

Brazilian League 2012/2013

When it comes to the next season of the Superliga, I believe Osasco's team is by far the favourite to winning the title. In my opinion, Unilever, Vôlei Amil and SESI SP will clash to see who will be defeated by Osasco in the final match. I even think that Vôlei Amil is stronger than Unilever and I think this year Vôlei Amil and Osasco will play the final match of this competition.

Brazilian League 2012/2013

Sheilla suffered an accident at home and injured her left knee. Her presence in the first final match of the Paulista Champinship is open to question. I personally think she won't be able to play any match of these playoffs since she had a broken toe.

The 2012 FIVB World Club Championships

Quoted from "Mammadova4Ever" Osasco was perfect in Brazilian league,so they're definetly not going to have ANY problems with teams from Argentina and Chile etc. but I think if they played like last year at the end of the season(with Hooker and Jaque in top-form) they could even challenge European clubs,maybe even beat them ! In fact I think Osasco's team can beat any team in the world. And now they are even stronger in service reception with Garay on court: Sheilla - Fabiola Jaqueline - Fernand...

2012 Olympic Games

I'm really happy with Brazil's team second Gold Medal in the OG. Brazil peaked at the right moment and the epic victory over Russia gave the team the energy to go after the Gold Medal. Brazil could have finished 9th in this competition and thank to the US team we survived the preliminary round. Against Russia, when the match was 19-18 against us, Russia had the counter-attack and we were able to dig and score the point in attack. Again we escaped the 5th place in the competition and were able to...

2012 Olympic Games

Brazil's victory over Russia was something which I will never forget in my life. Besides the rivalry between the two teams, Brazil could finally beat Russia in a playoff match. After losing in 2004, 2006 and 2010, the history changed in 2012. What amazes me is that this current Brazil's team is weaker than the 2006 and 2010 teams. I hope we could play well against Japan, it will be a very tough match and we are having lots of trouble in the matches against Asian teams. Brazil's team has gained c...

2012 Olympic Games

In my opinion, Russia is clearly the favourite to advance to the semifinals in the match against Brazil for two reasons: 1) They are more regular and more confident; 2) Brazil's team defense is a joke; I am a fan of Brazil's team but I just can't see Brazil beating Russia this time playing the way they are. I believe Russia's team will beat Brazil in straight sets.

2012 Olympic Games

According to Brazil's girls they lost their concentration in the 4th set, which is just unacceptable in the OG level. If Brazil's team continue to suffer such black-outs, we won't even reach the semifinals.

Friendly NT Matches

Brazil and Russia played a 4-player friendly match against Russia and the match finished tied 2-2 (25-19, 19-25, 23-25, 26-24). I don't know which team is which but it seems Russia took both the 1st and 4th sets. Sokolova played the 4 sets and Kosheleva also played this match. Gamova didn't play this friendly match.
