Quoted from "harboboy" I mean we never mentioned Fenerbahce but they actually may host the F4 as well Is Turkey secure enough to host the final round?

Quoted from "USAvolleyfan" Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" Quoted from "USAvolleyfan" Volero or Moskow hosting would be ridiculous.. the F4 will be much worse with any of those hosting. Volero is a joke compared to teams like Vakifbank, Galatasaray, Novara, Conegliano.. I would even prefer Kazan before Moskow You have to think in the perspective of the the russian volleyball federation. Because of the CEV league rank points and the nature of hosting the final round of Champions League. Some na...

CEV Champions League 2018

Volero Zurich? They shouldn't even be wasting their time and money on the champions league. The only way for them to go to the final is if Volei Alba Blaj miraculously win the playoff 6 and two clubs from the same country makes it to the semi-final. I think Fenerbahce should rather try to recover from their injuries and just look forward to the league. If only winning the CL means an automatic qualification to the next CL season then it would make sense. Too much ambitions might just kill you of...

CEV Champions League 2018

This is getting ridiculous. It's actually fun talking about players' personal lives once in a while but we shouldn't be even be debating what choiceS they make. This is not Life is Strange the videogame. Players have their own feelings and we should respect that. We're talking about 25+ years old females who probably wanted stability with their 25+ year old male partners who are vagabonds/mercenaries... their relationship is extremely unique as athletes with no permanent homes or work. If they w...

CEV Champions League 2018

Quoted from "Canter" those players you counted are already star players and they dont need to improve but to find their best/top conditions .. how much more can Kosheleva improve at this age? lol but she is in a better condition in comparison with the the last season Boşkoviç was the MVP of the last ECH the same for the other players the players come to Turkey are the players Who generally completed their developments i also dont understand whats wrong with playing against some of the best team...

You clearly have been underestimating the development those players undergone in their parent clubs or national teams and overestimating the turkish league for their development. I give you Sloetjes. She was under Guidetti when he was still the coach of Netherlands. Buijs though? I got a feeling her time under the legendary Rezende in Rexona and the new american Dutch NT coach gave her back what she lost as a player. Same for Carol who was in Rexona.

CEV Champions League 2018

Quoted from "beri" Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" Foreign players who go to Turkey aren't motivated by the experience. They go there for the money. What a whole load of BS then you should really look up for some interviews of 'big' players playing in Turkey like Zhu Ting, Rykhliuk, Rasic, Boskovic, Ognjenovic, Sloetjes, Buijs and ahaha even Veljkovic at the time. Ofc the experience is important and WILL improve them in the best league of the world. Let me quote you one: 'First time I was aske...

Italy – Superlega 2017/2018

Latina took a set away from Perugia. Perugia is playing without Russell. Currently a big lead for Perugia in the second set though.

Foreign players who go to Turkey aren't motivated by the experience. They go there for the money. If Veljkovic doesn't want to go to Turkey... it's because she doesn't need it at the moment... You know there are more valuable things than money like love. The D must be great so good for Stefana.

CEV Champions League 2018

Quoted from "harboboy" Polish mens league is stronger than a polish womens league. Same goes with Kurek and being in Turkey. Murilo has a child and both he and his wife don't want to leave Brazil, why should they when their whole family is there and the Brazilian league is a strong league. But Vejlkovic and polish league? Where can she develop, does she see any success internationally with Chemik? Turkish League is not stronger than the women's league.It's below by a country mile compared to th...

CEV Champions League 2018

Quoted from "USAvolleyfan" Quoted from "Umu11" Rumor has it, his boyfriend, Srecko, will play in Italy next year. That means she will transfer to a team in Italy which is good for her. Which shows how 'blind' can women sometimes be. She had a great season with the NT, and yet she stayed in Poland because of her boyfriend.. At least he's also one of the best in the world.. Ognjenovic on the other hand has been playing in Greece(!), in order to be woth her boyfriend, and she's a f**king superstar...

CEV Champions League 2018

Dinamo Moscow is rumoured to become the organizer of the final round of the Women's Champions League. Zenit Kazan for the men's edition. Zenit Kazan seems to be almost official while Dinamo Moscow is just on the early stages of application. It could still end up with another club if the talks fall through. I doubt an italian club will have it again though. It's been years since Russia hosted the tournament so it just makes sense that they should be the next.

CEV Champions League 2018

Quoted from "Matthias" Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" Quoted from "Harrison" I hope Russian players will go different leagues next year.I can't see any improvement in some Russian players. Lyubushkina went to Italy and I don't think I saw any improvement on her. Actually I think the season in Busto was the best in her career. EDIT As the poster before me has already mentioned Glad I'm not alone. The main problem is that most Russian players aren't interested in playing abroad. As long as thei...

Is a 3rd Meter pipe possible?

It's not impossible especially against a team of midgets or confused giants but I feel the topic is just not interesting to me anymore.

Quoted from "Harrison" I hope Russian players will go different leagues next year.I can't see any improvement in some Russian players. Lyubushkina went to Italy and I don't think I saw any improvement on her. It's just probably difficut for Moscow to compete without any foreigners. Galatarasay wrecked their reception badly and I don't see how can Moscow recover without someone to hustle or distract everyone from Goncharova.

Italy – Superlega 2017/2018

Quoted from "Kk15" I agree, and if you think about it last year it was practically the same even with Stokr and Nelli: all the trash to Lanza and Urnaut. Luckily (well, it's not a coincidence he was aired) Kovacevic is a master of trash balls. Lanza for me is great in that as well, but last season he was more effective than this one. I won't say Giannelli gave all the trash balls to Lanza/Urnaut last year but it was definitely not a team reliant on the opposite. This time... it felt like Gianne...

Italy – Superlega 2017/2018

Seems to me that Giannelli or specifically Lorenzetti wanted to bring back the confidence of Vettori. Giannelli is still under-using Vettori. The number of balls he sent to Vettori is too low for an opposite and Lanza or Kovacevic depending on who passes the ball the less gets the most difficult sets and as obvious... the most errors in attacks. If I have to guess... Giannelli probably still doesn't trust Vettori but limiting the sets to him to only high percentage kills and forcing the out of s...
