Dutch NT 2018

Dutch NT started preparations for the summerseason at National Sports Centre Papendal last week, according to Jamie Morrison's instagram-account. So far I only saw pictures of Dijkema and Grothues being there Daalderop, Stoltenborg, Plak and Sloetjes are still competing in play-offs. De Kruijf is recovering from her knee-injury.

Germany - VBL 1. Bundesliga 2017/2018

Quoted from "StefanS" Especially the first set was a lousy performance by Stuttgart, and nevertheless a very lucky set win by Aachen, which clearly performed above their standards in first set. Stuttgart had no rhythm in beginning, especially not in service, with 6 service faults in the both first sets each. This referee should be suspended by VBL, beause he isn't able to count to four, both wrong decisions in this regard against Stuttgart (first fourth contact of Aachen was not decided as erro...

Germany - VBL 1. Bundesliga 2017/2018

Quoted from "Matthias" Stuttgart - Aachen 3:1 (24:26 25:19 26:24 25:16) http://live.volleyball-bundesliga.de/2017-18/Women/2512.pdf MVP: Femke Stoltenborg / Kirsten Knip Aachen played well in 1st and 3rd set but doesn't have the consistency and options to play a full match on the same level as Stuttgart. After a weak 1st set Oude Luttikhuis turned out to be Aachen's strongest hitter Both OPPs were awful and Adams played the worst match since she's in Aachen I guess. Stuttgart played solid but n...

Quoted from "StefanS" Quoted from "flyingdutchman" https://www.stuttgarter-zeitung.de/inhal…e47b6fab5a.html Dresden...ohne Worte...Waibl and friends are a shame There are several reasons for unfriendly behaviour, you should be aware of: in first season of Stuttgart in first league Alex Waibl was fired due (at least it was claimed for) an interview he gave. And I guess, that both Dresden and Schwerin see Stuttgart as newbies, who threaten their hegemony existing a few years ago... Don't take thi...

Germany - VBL 1. Bundesliga 2017/2018

Quoted from "Matthias" Quoted from "StefanS" Nika Daalderop (too good for this league) I've read the article as well so I know that this argument isn't coming from you, but...Daalderop didn't exactly prove to be "too good for this league" this season Sure, she is a great talent, but she's only turning 20 this year and honestly I don't think she's ready yet to play in a bigger league. I'd rather see her another year in Stuttgart (or another German top team), being a starter and most of all impro...

Germany - VBL 1. Bundesliga 2017/2018

Quoted from "Visitor" Quoted from "flyingdutchman" Wiesbaden deserved the win! Very good serving (Kosova) and defense (Stock). Oude Luttikhuis in 5th set 4 reception-errors in a row.. She is the key-person for Aachen, also in play-offs. If she plays decent, Aachen (with Bongaerts, hopefully) can beat Wiesbaden. If Wiesbaden succeeds in picking her in reception, Aachen will probably lose. Aachen's biggest weapon, also today, was their block. I think, together with Stuttgart, they are the best bl...

Quoted from "Matthias" I'm wondering how bad Karolina Pisla must be if even today she doesn't replace Oude Luttikhuis Quoted from "Matthias" I'm wondering how bad Karolina Pisla must be if even today she doesn't replace Oude Luttikhuis Matthias...come on...according to you, Nicole deserves a call for Dutch NT In fact, it is a shame...today she was again the opponent's best player... I really hope she will leave Aachen after this season, the same for Sunjic. They both are simply very weak player...

Germany - VBL 1. Bundesliga 2017/2018

Quoted from "StefanS" Quoted from "flyingdutchman" Quoted from "StefanS" The both most interesting matches today are supposed to be: Wiesbaden vs. Vilsbiburg and Dresden vs. Aachen. The first one is difficult to predict, despite Wiesbaden is the favourite at home; the second has an interesting tone, because Aachens head coach Saskia van Hintum aggressively pushed to get points out of the Margon hall. IMHO this is highly unlikely, because the home advantage of Dresden is alway huge (compare the ...

Dutch NT 2018

Quoted from "Matthias" I think Nicole Oude Luttikhuis, even though she's still very unstable, is a bigger prospect on international level than Marrit Jasper. The most Jasper can become is serve/reception substitute. For MB position I think Juliet Lohuis deserves the call. Oude Luttikhuis....I don't know...she played many horrible games this season.. About Jasper: indeed, she is only suited for backcourt. Lohuis got MVP today, but I don't know much about her season so far..

Dutch NT 2018

I watched this weekend both Suhl-Aachen (Saturday) and Münster-Stuttgart (today). Jamie Morrisson attended both matches..watching many Dutch players on court. My gues for 2018 wide-roster: Setters: Dijkema (Firenze), Stoltenborg (Stuttgart), Bongaerts (Aachen), ? Opposites: Sloetjes (Vakifbank), Plak (Novara), ? OHs: Daalderop (Stuttgart), Balkestein-Grothues (Casalmaggiore), Pietersen (Modena), Buijs (Nilufer), Jasper (Dresden) ? MB: De Kruijf (Conegliano), Beliën (Bursa), Polder (Aachen), Stoe...

I have never seen a match before, like Aachen-Schwerin yesterday...WOW !!! I'm curious wether McKenzie Adams will get an invitation for the wide roster of USA NT... Of course, she plays only for a small club in German League.. but at least in Bundesliga, I see no better OH. On the other hand, I hope she will not get so much attention, because I want to see her in Aachen again next season By the way, Aachen's block was again impressive, yesterday. Polder and Stoeten are doing really well

Aachen should have won 0-3...they were leading 11-20 in 2nd set... Bongaerts and Adams have a great connection. Oude Luttikhuis is a disaster. She is by far Aachen's worst player every match..The polish girl really deserves to start, but until now van Hintum prefers Oude Luttikhuis

Germany - VBL 1. Bundesliga 2017/2018

As an Aachen-fan, I feel of course very proud of our players performing so well ... Bongaerts and Polder are the biggest surprises, in my opinion. Last season Polder was nowhere...and now she has become a very athletic and strong player, both in attack and block. She reminds me of Yvon Beliën, who played for Aachen in the past. Bongaerts turnes out to be a great server and she is solid in other elements. Adams is indeed a very complete player, who fits really well in Aachen's very fast game. Las...
