Respect to all users here on the forum. If having to choose only one... My vote goes to Joana (joanamss). She's very nice, tolerant, sensible, inspiring and addicted to volleyball. I always have a good time reading her posts. Holding my fingers crossed for Joana to win

Quoted from "samba player" I think that is a Polish or generally Slavic tradition to give three kisses. Yes, this is a tradition. In Ukraine and Russia too. The more kisses the better, especially if it's Flier. Anybody disagree?

World Championship Japan 2010

In terms of players selection Avital Selinger seems to work similarly to Nikolay Karpol. Both prefer to grow own players for their teams. Maybe, the wish to have own players somehow connected with the methods, used by these coaches to motivate their teams? But there is also a drawback in such an approach. If the player is not from the "family" she almost has no chances to get to the NT. Also, the player from the team may lose her place, if refused to follow the rules of the "family". Unlike thes...

Quoted from "Joana" How come she wasn't "discovered" earlier? She's not all that young anymore. Perepelkina came to Russia from Kazakhstan in 2004. And only late in 2009 she was allowed to play for Russian NT.

Perepelkina seems haven't got nerves at all. Confident as if it was her 10th WCH final. She scored a few truly critical points, helping team not to lose the spirit

World Championship Japan 2010

Well done, girls!! The title is confirmed The match wasn't really spectacular, but in final the result is only matters. Congratualtions to Brazil with silver and Japan with bronze. I think, no other teams deserved medals this time. Everything was decided in honest way.

World Championship Japan 2010

Today Dutch girls were in a very good mood and put a thick dot on the final of WCH, leaving Cuba on 12th place. NED - CUB 3:0 Thanks to the team for fighting till the very end. The bitter taste of this tournament has become a little sweeter. Looking how Netherlands play with Alice Blom instead of Chaine Staelens, I think, if Avital Selinger put her on the start list since the first day - everything could be different, way better than now.

World Championship Japan 2010

Quoted from "mateo" trully pathetic match to watch at 3 am. Poland did everything to lose this match I wouldn't be so cruel to Poland. The number of mistakes was high, but defense was really amazing. Holland had a hard time trying to hit the ground. Gameplay of Dutch gils haven't changed to better, unfortunetaly. Losing the ends of the sets and decisive moments, just like all matches before. Also, the individual levels were lower than usual. Manon, Maret and Chaine were hardly noticable on the ...

Quoted from "HeeelMooi" It's funny you say that you'll give Laura one more year to play great. And then what? What if she doesn't? Coach should start trying/training the new setters. Quoted from "HeeelMooi" What if she starts playing really well after 6 years? You'll still have to accept that. It seems, that you still haven't realized, that club-NT project is over. Better ask yourself, what team would do all these six years, while Laura were looking for the great game-play of hers? All the time...

Quoted from "HeeelMooi" Sorry for getting all emphatic, but like this you may udnerstand better where I'm coming from. Yes, I understand what you mean. If talking about, what happens in the player's head, I think, you describe your very own vision, based on your own experience. Other individuals can see these things in other ways. For example, somebody, to show the best level of play, may need to get angry towards opponents. Others can have a trained "killer instinct". Etc. I think. creating th...

Quoted from "gael alexei philippe" I'm really excited for the semi-finals between Russia and the US Gamova vs Destinee, Sokolova vs Logan Tom I really hope Russia wins I need something to restore my supporter's spirit, killed by Dutch and Serbian teams performance. Watching how Russia demolishes USA in the semi-final would be good enough Go, Russia!!
