Brazilian Superliga 2017-2018

What about Pedro from Canoas to the NT? He seems young and he's quite tall. His serves are a bit meh, but I'm sure it isn't that difficult to improve. Alan's substitute, Franco, is also a good hitter. I think if he played in another team, he'd be a starter. I think Felipe Roque should also be elevated to the senior team too. He's a rare specimen.

I agree, Saishuu! Congrats to Honorato. He deserves the MVP match award (he's being interviewed now). I hope he grows taller. I once saw Bisset come in as a sub opposite hitter for Roque. I thought that made a whole lot more sense given how well he attacked and scored there.

South Korea - KOVO 2017/18 V-League

Whaaaaat?!?!? Quoted from "nnnneil0929" Quoted from "barnabas" ^ I'm unable to open the videos as I am at work , but could you please tell me what position Kim Yo Han now plays? He's playing as a Middle Blocker since the start of the season(including the KOVO Cup).

Brazilian Superliga 2017-2018

I enjoyed the SESC-Sada Cruzeiro match. I was rooting for SESC but I was ready to concede defeat to Sada as they are stronger. I generally don't like Mauricio Borges simply because he takes too much time to do everything (haha), but as always, he was impressive and excellent in the match (plus, he looked very fatherly to his baby son in the post-game interview; I'm a sucker for good fathers). There was this play that he was made to pull by Thiaguinho in the first or second set. Thiaguinho gave h...

I agree about João Rafael. I think he should be given a chance in the NT. I have a strong gut feeling that he'll blend in no time. His teammate in SESC-Rio who is the primary setter is quite impressive as well. In fact these two players are my favorite in that team! And I agree about having a challenge system in place too. There have been far too many ugly referee calls.

Men's Club World Championship 2017

I've seen Ren Qi and Shen Qiong play together on the national team together, and I know they aren't that old. Ren Qi as a libero may even have a longer "shelf life", but yes, injuries can put a damper on things. Are his injuries that bad? Maybe he just needs a long rest. I mean look at the two Serginhos of Sada and Corinthians... That match between Sada and Lube, I had thought that Sada would at least even up, but they were made to look like kids. I just kept scratching my head seeing Leal and S...

Man! That Corinthians-Sesi match just wouldn't die (delayed reaction, I know; was just too busy at work; I don't mind backlogging on my Superliga fix, though)! :-D Fábio is growing on me and I like it that he doesn't seem to mind looking silly or whatever. I thought the fourth set was owed to his clutch performances in the dying stretch. Someone here.once said that he could do well if he wanted to do, and I believe that now. Now I'm waiting for Alan Patrick to be "unleashed." He looked still a b...

Watching the Montes Claros-Sesc match now. Alexandre Alemão is incorrigible. I think he's a lost cause already. Has he been struggling with an injury or something? Speaking of injuries, is Brendle down with one? Just out of curiosity: I noticed that the courtside announcer at Maringá's home stadium pronounces words differently (to my foreign ears, of course). Is that what is called "Portuñol"?

I forgot which match, but just last week I saw Lorena being very angry with his coach. Was he slapped some disciplinary actions after that? I think he didn't start in the last two games.

That was an officiating errors fest! I thought the first referee's errors were too glaring. Quoted from "rbdfabio" Super Copa Final - Cruzeiro vs Taubate The arena is nearly empty. http://tudotvonline.com/assistir-sportv-…-hd-2400-horas/ http://videostream.dn.ua/videopage/video…4%96f%E2%84%96f

Brazilian League 2017/2018

Valeskinha and Liu Yanan come to mind for such MBs. Why did Walewska leave in 2008? Quoted from "Sidney" Walewska is a classic MB from the 90s. She started playing professionally in 1997 when MBs still played in the background. She was called to the NT just one year after that She is a great example of how age might mean nothing (Juciely also). Brazil has had good MBs througout the past years, but Walewska could have easily played in the NT for many more years. It was her decision to leave after...

I like watching Walewska play. I remember seeing her play in Russia several years back as a receiving MB in a few matches. She was able to hold her own. It'd be sad to see her go, but, yeah, that's life.

Maybe it's just me, but I really enjoyed watching Solé--he is just so consistent! Is Sesi still eligible to move up to the Superliga?

Thank you, thank you, Sidney! Muito obrigado! Quoted from "Sidney" Quoted from "barnabas" Incidentally, could any of you guys from Brazil recommend a website that sells and internationally ships club volleyball jerseys? :-D You'll probably find these jerseys on the websites or social medias of each club, especially the main clubs (Minas, Cruzeiro, Nestlé, Sesc...). But I know that this website also sells some stuff: https://loja.saqueviagem.com.br I'm sorry but I don't know if they ship internat...

Thank you, Saishu! BTW, who is Sada Cruzeiro's new setter? Watching William's magical sets in Sesi has lifted my spirits which was feeling a bit sad at his departure from Sada. Also, has Vissotto been away from volleyball? He looks a bit out of shape, and he seems to be half-hearted and only pretending to be trying. Or maybe it's just me. Haha!

Thank you, Sydney! All those six players comprise almost half a team already. As of this writing, I'm watching the part in the semis between Corinthians and Campinas where Serginho is so livid against one of the table officials. I don't understand what is up, but I think he's displaying so much audacity...Oop! He just got red-carded. About the player movement from one team to another, is that leveling-scoring still followed? Like each player is worth a certain number of points and each team rece...

Men's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Watching Renan play without any knee support given his height, I can't help but be amazed. Evandro and Vissotto have never worn any knee support either, have they?
