ranking based on team players

i kinda agree when both of you say team china is strong, but given the fact that ruirui just returned and a few weeks ago, she sprained her ankle. though she is now like 80% of what she did in 2003, she still need some time to adapt to the international volley game play, like she never plays with the current russian and italian team also, to harness the attacks by ruirui, china have got to have excellent reception, but reception is not really that stable, thats why i think china have to work rea...

ranking based on team players

the big three: italy, russia, and usa italy represents the most consistent game play from last year, with the powerful player of aguero and the two amazing blockers italy has. barazza and gioli are the best blocking pair last year. with flawless defense, italy has more chances to fight back for each score russia was the champion of 2006. with only 2 hitters, russia was able to get a silver medal in the last OG. last year, gamova just recovered from injuries but now all the powerful players are b...

Height or technique

agree , just look at the defense of italy in the world cup, some unlikely balls were dug up and turned into counter attacks and the amazing fact is that their height is the shortest in the recent champions 99-2000: torres 191, fernadez 187, regla bell 185, Yumika ruiz 179, Aguero 178, mesa 182, costa 176 02 world champion: Togut 193, Rineri 185, centoni 187, Picci 180, Leggeri 190, Lo Bianco 178 03-04: H. Yang 182, Lina wang 182, Fen Kun 183, Liu Yanan 185, Ruirui 197, Zhang Ping 187, Zhou SuHun...

Olympic Games 2008 - Qualification Phase

Celso, the thing is that Ze seems to give up on Mari, then brazil need to have a better attacker to sub the place Opposite ----some agree that sheilla is good but not good enough, then the problem is who is the opposite in the brazil NT, so... will Natalia be the next super spiker that brazil needs badly ?

Olympic Games 2008 - Qualification Phase

if she comes back, the age combined is 75, fernanda being 37, fafao being 38 with the remark ze roberto made a fews years ago, i think it is unlikely he will retake fernanda plus the fact that they are the same type of setters, brazil got to need a younger one of another type, ding

Height or technique

really nice to have this graph put here, the stats are useful but we cant see the changes of rules affect the winning team, like 15 points a set in the past but if we calculate the height since 2000---thats because the new ball and the rules changes, 25 per set then, what italy can achieve is extraordinary cos the previous winner russia was the tallest so far in women volley then we have to realise what is important is not height but the jumping abilities cuba in the 90s is equipped with best ju...

How do you see Poland NT?

given just one year, poland last year won 3-0 italy and 3-2 china, especially poland never did that in the past few years and bonitta is quite a remarkable coach and only in onths, he changed the team into a defensive and offensive team, the defense of poland last year is remarkable just give bonitta some time, and i think there will be something to show to the world

How do you see Poland NT?

Quoted from "DEMIR17" Poland is a strong team now with powerful attackers Glinka,Kasia,Dcekiewicz(sorry if my spelling is wrong)Liktoras,Baranska,Podolec but what about reception? to have a good attack you first need to have a good reception.do you think Poland can handle it with Glinka?as much as ı see she is having a bit difficulty in receiving both in Murcia and NT. sometimes, you have to sacrifice some reception for some tall attackers, but you see, poland now have three amazing players tha...

How do you see Poland NT?

Quoted from "Matthias" Not of ALL teams...may I remind you of Brazil leading 2-1 sets and 24-19 in Athens semifinal and losing the match, and leading 13-11 in WCH final and then losing 4 consecutive points? i understand how you feel, thats why i am not so much into backrow attacks, unless the team, any teams, incorporate back row attack into a way of offense and with good sets...

why no one talks about the new ball

but girls and guys, do you think lowering the pressure is a good idea? this new use is really coming out in a haste, just months before the OG japan is not much damaged by the use of new ball, but if the future new ball is lowered the pressure, then i dont think it is a good idea

Mari Steinbrecher gives an interview to a Brazilian journal

she said that openly maybe because there is not much chance to be in the team any longer remember what ze roberto said if she wants to return to the team, she has to understand how important team discipline is if undertsood this way, Mari could say this without fear though, just lets see if brazil will have her back in the GP 00
