Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

Another very disappointing effort by Pomi. Martinez is such a liability in reception, and while we can't expect her to be an awesome digger with her height, she's not making up for it with her spiking either. Grothues is not making any difference yet. Lo Bianco runs a weird game. It seems like the only one she really trusts is Guiggi, and all the others get their sets at random, so no one can get any rhythm. It's hard to understand her choices a lot of times. Annie Drews started the match really...

Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

Quoted from "saishuu" Carlini seriously needs to step it up. One of her sets is gonna get Haak injured one day. And I'm not even gonna talk about her sets to the middles... She always has at least one completely botched set to MBs. I'm not sure I've ever seen something like that on this level of professional volleyball. They're lucky that Haak has been such a killer because their game is not fluid at all. Arighetti is basically just a decoration on the court.

Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

What's with the stat sheets? Mingardi is completely absent from Modena's stats, they apparently used 5 field players + libero Also the stats for Filottrano vs Novara (What the HELL happened there, anyway??!) look weird and not believable. Grothues did little to reverse Pomi's fortunes. They seem determined to fight for relegation, it seems. But if you have an OPP like Zago as your starter, that's your level. What a fightback for Bergamo! I really wish they could somehow salvage their season and,...

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

Quoted from "beri" Quoted from "JoanaBG" Is Jelena Nikolić playing on that 2nd league team? Because she's now turned to politics and is supporting the option that makes me glad she's retired from NT What do you mean exactly? What is she supporting in politics, what option? She still played for THY afaik. We're having local elections in Belgrade soon and she's a candidate for a seat in the City Assembly (and very likely to get it), so I wondered if it meant she retired from volleyball already.

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

Quoted from "beri" Istanbul is obv a very big metropolis with over 16 million people in it so it is as big as some countries anyway It has more people than Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina combined BTW, almost all Serbian players who have played there absolutely love it, Jelena Nikolić said it's the only place except for Belgrade where she could imagine herself settling down, Vesna Čitaković said it was the only place outside Serbia where she never felt like a foreigner, and so on. I ...

Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

Modena is such a mess. WIth all their OHs, they're still starting with Montano, and she looks like she's mentally already retired. Although, not that Pietersen did much/any better, but at least she has the excuse of just having arrived. Bosetti sucked too. Barun is trying really hard, but she looks past it physcially, which is more than understandable at her age. On the other side, a shout-out to the young 19-year old MB Alexandra Botezat! Her blocking skills are exceptional and she has a mean s...

CEV Champions League 2018

I don't think the new club will be a powerhouse wherever they end up. The money just doesn't seem to be there anymore. The sister club Le Cannet just got a 6 point reduction for not paying its players.

CEV Champions League 2018

Meanwhile, Alba Blaj beat Developres 3-0 away and is now looking good to win their group. Amazing stats for Cleger - she must have certainly improved a lot compared to the previous match against Volero, where her performance was memorable mostly for her hilarious attempts at serving that made Anne Matthes' infamous ECh '11 final serve look like a technical masterpiece. I'm still annoyed Maritza vs Vizura was shown here instead of Fenerbahce vs Novara, which I was too lazy to search a stream for,...

CEV Champions League 2018

The stats for Sloetjes do look tragic. Still, it seems like the team had little problems recovering from whatever brainfart that caused them to lose the 2nd set. TV schedule for this week here in Serbia is horrendous, they're showing Serbian and Slovenian teams in CEV/Challenge cup instead of CL matches. And the only match they're going to broadcast tomorrow is Maritza vs Vizura

CEV Champions League 2018

Quoted from "SHAME" Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" Does Dinamo Moscow even have any foreigners in their club? I think Terzic is the only one. Alena Handzel Yurieva. Bielorussian MB. She acquired Russian citizenship and stopped playing on Belarusian NT a while ago. Terzić said he wanted to sign a foreign OH but there were none available on the market when he took over the team.

Volley Ball couple?

Perhaps it's common knowledge, but I wasn't aware that Atanasijević and Vasileva had more than just a summer fling - they're still together.

Poland - Liga Siatkówki Kobiet 2017/18

Quoted from "Ttom" I dont know info but Lisinac is going to play in Italy too right? They both said they're ready to leave Poland and go to another country/league together. They didn't mention any specific details, though, and I didn't get the impression it's going to happen before the end of this season.

Serbian NT 2017

Tijana Bošković was declared the best young athlete of the year in Serbia (both male and female, across all sports) by the Serbian Olympic Committee. The volleyball team got the award as the best women's team of the year, of course.

Serbian NT 2017

Quoted from "serdar" Any idea on why Mina Tomiç naturalized to Crotian NT? I remember she was a very promising player in junior levels and she was playing in UKR for a long time. Now I saw her in Modena's roster as Crotian citizen I have no idea My best guess is that she has dual citizenship through her parents and that she's formally registered in Italy as a Croatian citizen because of taxes and such since Croatia is an EU member while Serbia isn't.

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

I'm really, really sorry it all had to end this way. Things got out of control and became very ugly when they really didn't need to. I'm also completely aware of my own contribution to this mess and I apologize for it. I also have to say that I'm going to miss Rdfabio. His contribution to this forum was big and all things considered, he made it a more interesting place. I still hope he will be back some day. And finally, let's just hope this was a lesson to everyone. We should all remember to ke...

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

Quoted from "ST2008" Quoted from "Emil" If he doesn’t like her, it’s his preference, you can’t change it nor make the Chinese lady less good. Why care so much? I don’t follow Turkish league at all these days so I barely read this thread but I don’t want this forum to be full of ridiculously endless conflicts. If you like the Chinese, that’s good and everybody knows she’s a great player but it doesn’t mean everyone despeately MUST like her, it you see my point. Yeah... we should instead criticiz...
