2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

Quoted from "LDvolley" I have the theory that Kovac only reaped the fruits of Velasco's tenure (he left just few months before the competition). The following year Iran was very bad under him. Making the olympics isn't that impressive, Iran was already far above other asian teams. Yes, I know they missed it in 2012, but that was just a massive accident of a loss against Australia. Point taken about the grand champions cup, I had forgotten about it. Maybe they are resurrecting now. Yep. I think ...

Iranian volleyball league 2017-2018

Quoted from "deian1302" Thank you so much. Do you have information about Havosh Gonbad roster ? this one is a bit harder, cuz I know they had so many changes during the season, the roster I know and remember is different than what I have in that PDF file. at some point they started to play only with local Gonbad based players. (and actually they got better results after that) they fired some of their players and got some Gonbad-born players from lower division clubs. this is their roster based ...

Iranian volleyball league 2017-2018

the file doesn't include the positions. I know that for most of them but not all. also, this is only the start of the season squads, we had some changes in middle of the season, I only mention those I'm aware of . OK let's start with top 4. I will add the rest later Bank Sarmayeh Tehran S: Lukasz Zygadlo, Mehdi Mahdavi, Hamid Hamoudi OP: Shahram Mahmoudi, Reza Ghara, Hamed Farrokhizadeh OH: Farhad Ghaemi, Ghasem Karkhaneh, Mojtaba Mirzajanpour, Alireza Mobasheri MB: Mohammad Mousavi, Adel Gholam...

Iranian volleyball league 2017-2018

Quoted from "deian1302" I would want to ask if it's possible rosters of iranian volleyball teams from last season to be posted. Thanks a lot ! Is there any specific team you want to know its rosters ? I mean there are 12 teams with a lot of players, that will take time to write all of them not sure if it helps but here is the full list in Persian http://iranvolleyball.com/wp-content/upl…%AA%D8%B196.pdf

Men's Club World Championship 2017

Hard to believe Sarmayeh lost this after such a comfortable start !! they had so many chances to finish the match. specially Mahmoudi glad to not see Mirzajanpour in the NT, he had a good match overall but he did stupid things in crucial points.

Men's Club World Championship 2017

Quoted from "saishuu" Pretty crazy how Sarmayeh Bank is pretty much the Iranian NT sans Marouf. lol Nice match between them and ZAKSA so far. well, half of them, Mahmoudi, Gholami and Mirzajanpour are not with the Iranian NT anymore. at least not in 2017

Men's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Happy with the bronze medal, first ever FIVB medal for Iran senior team. even though I know WGCC is probably the lowest in FIVB competitions in term of importance. but you must be unlucky to finish 3rd despite having one defeat. doesn't matter if France was incomplete or what, they finally broke the France curse ! out of all top teams in the world one team was undefeated for Iran and that was France. still this team needs a lot of changes. Mousavi is an average player now, Marouf makes mistakes ...

Men's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Quoted from "barnabas" Just curious. How is -gh in "Ghaemi" pronounced? "Gh" stands for "ق" which is a Persian letter. a bit similar to "G" but just a bit. I think I can say it's very similar to "r" in French.

Men's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

LOL Iran the only defeated team after the second day ! Didn't expect that at all the win vs Italy was good (not great, still thinking about Ghafour missing the match point in the 4th set) but today's result was just great against probably the best team of the tournament. they were completely hopeless in first 2 sets but everything has changed when Manavinejad came in. his reception is still poor and he does mistakes here and there but he is the only Iranian OH who can spike in world level. and a...

Men's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" Lots of youth in in Iran. I wonder what they can do. Sounds promising and the setters are now taller. only in the wide roster, they are bringing exactly the same old roster without a single change . only without Adel Gholami for disciplinary reasons. they were supposed to bring few new players but those younger players were busy this summer with other national teams (U23 and U21) and didn't train with the senior team at all.

Men's Volleyball at the 2017 Summer Universiade | Taipei, Taiwan

Quoted from "Kaziyski" In conversation with some people which are close to Kolaković I heard GCC is Iran's primary competition this year They all subordinated to GCC That's true they care about the GCC and they sacrificed the Asian Champs for that but I'm not sure if that was their primary target this year over the World League. people prefer watching WL over watching matches in Japan in early morning. I'm quite sure WGCC will have less media attention than the WL. it's not like they hide anyth...

Men's Volleyball at the 2017 Summer Universiade | Taipei, Taiwan

I watched the final and that was a very entertaining match with a lot of ups and downs. honestly I didn't even know some of these Iranian players but some of them had been in national team B before. Vadi, Piroutpour etc. I think Iran sent better team to previous Unidersiades but only this one managed to win a medal, the gold medal. good to see Iran is competitive in almost all volleyball competitions in all levels. even though the Current A team sucks for some reasons.

FIVB U19 World Championship 2017 | Bahrain

From 4th place in Asia and losing 4 matches to China and Korea (twice to each one) to win the world title losing only 3 sets in 8 matches ! quite an improvement.

FIVB U23 World Championship - 2017 | Egypt

I understand changing the scores but this "landing behind the line after serving" is just stupid, jump serves are the beauty of volleyball ! how come you can have a strong jump serve when you have to watch where you land !?

Men's World Championship 2018

Quoted from "ossubtus" i saw on wikipedia that in the 2nd match, CHN had no trouble with KAZ. and a few weeks ago, KAZ finished 2nd at AVC and CHN, 8th. weird... also noticed KAZ has a 7-footer MB (212 cm)???? that's crazy tall... is he any good? QAT players are all from balkans, brazil and africa... that's because of the AVC format of the competition, in second round you can lose all 3 matches and still you will have a chance in quarterfinal. Kazahstan was lucky to face Chinese Taipei in QF an...

Men's World Championship 2018

Quoted from "Leonardo.D" Thanks for the reply! I was just wondering because you left a small possibility for a korean victory against Iran. That´s why I thought Iran could have sent its B team. Anyway, I agree Korea doesnt stand a chance against Iran main team! The fight for the second ticket would be very tight. well nothing is guaranteed in this sport and the last time Iran played an official tournament, they were disastrous in Poland for the last weekend of the WL. but I assume they will be ...

Men's World Championship 2018

Quoted from "Leonardo.D" Is Iran playing with its first team? Or have they sent a B team or U23 one for this tournment? of course with the first team. and actually they are promoting this competition like qualifying to the World Championship is like a dream ! this link is supposed to broadcast the competition even though only when it doesn't conflict with other sports ! for example today they showed the 1st match but only few minutes of the 2nd match . http://www.telewebion.com/live/varzesh/ I ...
