Italian NT 2018

Actually, I don't think there's any coach that can make this Italy stronger than China, Serbia or USA... (and for 'be stronger' I don't mean 'happen to win a match sometimes', which is always possible despite the difference of strength). We simply don't have good enough OHs, imho (unfortunately). And in general we probably have only 2 real top players, Moki and Egonu (even if she still makes a lot of errors), plus good/very good MBs and good/decent setters. Still, I do believe last summer – befo...

Quoted from "LLOYD" Chirichella, Egonu and etc will not play well because of their coach. The same that brought us to the WGP silver medal at his first attempt with a renewed team, you mean? I watched the first two set vs Turkey and the second vs Poland, there were good things and several bad things, but I wasn't expecting that much, also because the 4-fast-attack-solutions it's an hard system to embrace, even if you've already played it (and many didn't, also among the 'oldest'). Still, I was ...

Anzani after all may stay in Perugia (instead of Modena, but it appears he DID signed with Modena. I still wonder why...)

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

About Lube, comments/infos by Cormio, Lube general director. Grebennikov had rush to find an alternative (? I knew Lube didn't want a foreign libero anymore, is it possible it was Grebennikov the first to leave? When Lube is stronger than Trento?...) Sander had an year of contract (I think he meant 'another' year) and a very high fee to broke it (so, it was convenitene for Lube to let him go because Sada payed them). Leal – They're working on it, it's complex because he is changing nationality. ...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

Various rumors: - Pesaresi in Milano - Milano may aire Yosifov (Galassi is going to Trento and Piano physical and contractual conditions are still unknown – he belongs to Modena and he is on loan in Milano, for the record) - De Pandis may go in Verona, that thought also of Perry; with an Italian libero they hope to grab Holt (Modena has already closed with Anzani and has Mazzoni... I still don't understand why Anzani went there, by the way. Well, beside money, may be...) Otherwise they'll aire A...

Italian team for 2 friendly matches vs Australia next week end (the first live on Raisport): Oleg Antonov (Ziraat Bankasi), Andrea Argenta (Azimut Modena), Fabio Balaso (Kioene Padova), Michele Baranowicz (Wixo LPR Piacenza), Enrico Diamantini (Bunge Ravenna), Simone Giannelli (Diatec Trentino), Daniele Mazzone (Azimut Modena), Gabriele Nelli (Kioene Padova), Simone Parodi (Wixo LPR Piacenza), Alberto Polo (Kioene Padova), Giacomo Raffaelli (Bunge Ravenna), Luigi Randazzo (Kioene Padova), Salvat...

Quoted from "Diesse14" I don't like Baranowicz, so I think Spirito should go behind Giannelli: less problems and more talent! About that, you also have to think what Blengini would do in case of need. I mean, you may think Spirito is better than Bara (which I don't judge, also because I prefer Sbertoli ), but if Blengini feels he can't actually trust him as a back up setter if things get messy (last year he was only used a server instead of Piano, and it didn't worked very well either), while h...

It's even seems that Sirci's offer (arrived two days ago, after Zaytsev interviews) is quite big, it's higher than his previous one, for two years. Second only to Leon offer, in the team. Weird situation!

@beri I actually appreciated it, but I'm not a graphic expert! @akiya, pope About the streaming, I just hope it won't be all geoblocked in Italy if Rai will transmit few Italian matches... (It may no be the case for the women, but for the men yes). OT Akiya, nice avatar! I love sense8 as well, can't wait for the final episode in less than a month!

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

Quoted from "Rains" In my opinion Zaytsev and Russell are stronger than him. But this isn't the question: if it wasn't for non-sport-related problem, Perugia would have preferred to keep Zaytsev without doubt. As for Russell, the discussion isn't if he is better than Lanza, but if it's worthy to put Podke on the bench to keep him titular (considering that Italy doesn't have such strong MBs). I'm not so sure about it. May be for others top OHs it would be, but they're all taken by now, I think. ...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

As far as I understand Trento will have both Nelli and Vettori, but if Vettori situation will variate (aka, if Trento will be able to get rid of him or he will stop...), it would also be interesting having both Nelli and Argenta... but I guess the best thing for them is find a team where to be titular. I heard rumors that Argenta may go in Ravenna, since Buccheger will probably follow Soli (coach) and Orduna in Monza. Rains, as I wrote Polo doesn't seems a chance. @Shame, I know you don't like L...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

With Zaytsev out of Perugia (probably Modena), Lanza will take his place. Russell, Jaesckhe or Dzavronock () may took his place in Trento, that will have to aire two italian MBs (Galassi for sure, the other may be Volpato or Rossi, not Polo), so I guess it's a bye bye for Kozamenrick as well, and I'm very sorry about it, because I like him in general and especially because none of the others has such a good float serve, with imho these day is veeeery important.

I completely missed this thread! I'm sorry I'm coming in so late, I realized I haven't spoken here about the NT when I came here to wrote about Vettori absence (Blengini explained why few days ago). I had several surprise: - Baranowicz is back. Hallelujah! I'm sorry for Spirito and especially Sbertoli (I prefer the latter), but I think we should go with Michele to the WCh. We need an expert back up (it's obvious that Blengini will use Giannelli as titular, unless he underperform, and probably al...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

Quoted from "Kk15" Apparently Sirci hasn't ever made an offer to him until this Monday, and some suggested it was for personal reason more than for sportive/economic ones. Edit: Zaytsev said Sirci hasn't spoken to his agent, even having had the chance to do so (and having promised to do so and asked for him to be in Perugia...). Ivan was quite harsh and even if he didn't said clearly that he won't stay in Perugia (Question: "Will you leave Perugia 100%?"; answer: "Sirci hasn't made an offer unt...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors & Discussion

The fact that Malinov will go in Scandicci strongly suggest Wolosz will stay in Conegliano. So I wonder: will Sylla be titular in Conegliano, instead of Bricio? Sometimes I heard yes, sometimes no (I read they were looking for others top OHs, like Easy again), but without an Italians setter now I'm worried about it... I mean, I wish Sylla to be titular in Serie A1 for the sake of the NT and because I wish her the best, but I'm not sure she's good enough for Conegliano. On the other hand, having ...

Quoted from "Sidney" Quoted from "Rains" Zaytsev stays in Perugia Wasn't he leaving to play as OPP somewhere else?! Actually, t's a while that he keeps saying that after all he'll stay in Perugia as OH if he'll receive an [adequate, I'll add] offer by Sirci. Apparently Sirci hasn't ever made an offer to him until this Monday, and some suggested it was for personal reason more than for sportive/economic ones. Of course Modena messes and the fact Trento won't play CL and probably can't offer that...

@LLOYD No live streaming unfortunately, even if at the beginning it was scheduled. About resting the players that played the Scudetto final, I wonder how that could work with the silly 6-players-from-the-OG obligation: with Gennari and Folie out, we have only Orro, Sylla, Danesi, Moki, Egonu, Chirichella, Ortolani. And since 4 of them played the Scudetto final, how can Mazzanti have all of them rest at the same time, until the 4th week end? Shouldn't he bring 6 OG players each week end? Curiousl...
