Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

The level looks OK to me in general. Yes, today Novara have played a really bad match so far but that happens. Maybe the teams aren't as good as Vakifbank and Eczacibasi but they are still very good teams.

What a ridiculous suggestion. Vakifbank played better than Eczacibasi yesterday, it's as simple as that. Sometimes even great players play bad games. Do you really think a team of elite players who have shown their passion and determination in the previous 2 matches are going to just let the other team win? Why would they want to make it more difficult for themselves? Honestly this makes no sense, as Beri said no team would benefit from this and just needlessly questions the integrity of these t...

Quoted from "sitenoise" Quoted from "Canter" right.that is valid for many languages..Polish ,Dutch ,Russian and the others btw did i say that i like Japanese female names a lot they are so nice How do you pronounciate "Buijs"? I'm sticking with "Zhu" as more closely like "chew"--which kind of has a "T" sound in it, not the French way of zzhhew, like most people say Bei-Zhing instead of Bei-Jing The thing about Japanese pronounciations that I find interesting is that, in a three syllable name, e...

Quoted from "Canter" Blocking : Naz > Maja ( Cansu=Maja) Lonneke < Tijana Ting >Meliha/Hande Gözde > Larson Raşiç+Kübra/Zehra > Beyza+Büşra agree with me ? Yes, I agree.

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

Quoted from "pope" Boskovic numbers. game 1 - 17 points (43%) game 2 - 17 points (44%) game 3 - 26 points (38%) game 4 - 13 points (40%) These numbers are really good... good enough to beat any team out there, but yeah to beat Vakifbank she gotta do better. But we gotta consider Vitra has Boskovic and some games they might have Larson/Beya/Meliha/Hande....while Vakifbank has Zhu and Sloetjes every game. Boskovic is the main focus for Vakifbank and they have done a great job in this series defen...

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

Sloetjes was great today and Cansu and Zehra added a lot of energy to the team I thought. Motta made a big mistake by starting with Hande and Boskovic really needs to step up. She has not played a great match yet in this final and today she was a shadow of her usual self. Yes, sometimes the sets were not good, but that is going to happen when Hande is playing and as the best OPP in the world she needs to kill bad balls in important matches. She's done it before but not today, hopefully she can b...

Why does Motta not use the team he has been using all year?

Please tell me Meliha will start the next set. She has played well all year, give her a chance when it matter most Motta.

I'll be honest and say Eczacibasi are playing terrible volleyball so far. Nothing like the last 2 matches.

I know Hande played well in the last match, but I don't think she should start the 2nd set. Her passing is too bad and Meliha has earned another chance after being really good all season.

So far Vakif's defence has been great meanwhile Eczaci's passing has been bad.

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

Quoted from "Janko" Last year's Eczacibasi debacle happened due to a number of factors which (partly unlikely, and partly due to an inherently unbalanced roster make-up) happened at the same time: 1)Coach does not recognises who his best player is, and plays her as a substitute 2)The first year of a sky-dive of Kosheleva's form (who is signed as a star-player), where her attack can no longer compensate for her lack of a defence, whereupon she becomes a net-negative player 3)A huge (and aging) d...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors & Discussion

I mean I think Buijs is a very good player for a mid-level team but I'm not sure if she is good enough for a top team. We will see what happens.

Quoted from "pope" Zhu vs Boskovic is just like Sheila vs Gamova.... Only difference is that Sheila and Gamova actually hated each other (as far as I know). Boskovic and Zhu certainly don`t have each other, but there`s a rivalry there and you can tell by Boskovic`s reaction when Zhu got blocked and spiked it out.... Next season CL will be great - Zhu-Boskovic-Egonu-Haak-Fabris Yeah, Boskovic and Zhu I think respect each other but they always love to beat the other one which is only natural when...

CEV Champions League 2018

Conegliano's situation is actually even worse. If the Turkish final goes to 5 games Vakif will at least have a week to rest. If the Italian final goes to 5 games then it will finish on 2 May, which gives Imoco only 3 days before the F4 starts!

CEV Champions League 2018

Of course, yeah it won't be easy. Galatasaray and Conegliano are clearly 2 of the best teams in the world. But I still think Vakifbank have to be the favourites.

Both are excellent players and Akinradewo would take away the sliding problem they have now, but I would still pick Rasic. The team already has Zhu and Sloetjes who will score most of the points, so the main role of the MBs is to block well which Rasic is better for.

CEV Champions League 2018

GS won't be favourite against Vakifbank when VB have beaten them 4 times out of 4 matches this season. But I do think it's silly that Alba Blaj get to host the F4 because it gives Gala a super easy draw. Semi-finals of the Champions League should be a tough match and the participants should be based on merit, not awarded.
