CEV Champions League 2019

I will comment this totally unexpected major change in two posts intentionally: here are my thoughts about it generally, in the second I will order the (likely) participating teams again in the new ranking. First of all, this is typical for our two top volleyball federations (applies also to FIVB, not just CEV): no reliability, but quick decisions to do something essentially different. This is also lacking integrity, but this is no surprise, because FIVB is IMHO totally corrupt (as virtually all...

2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

So after week 2 of 5 there are five teams with 5 to 1 victories occupying the qualification berths now: USA, Serbia, Brazil, Turkey and Netherlands would attend hosts China in Nanjing in finals, if they can hold them. Main contenders are now Russia and South Korea with 4 to 2 victories each so far.

2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

Serbia with full star-studded roster is stronger than China without many key players - no surprise. But as always, China is no opponent easy to handle.

2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

Quoted from "Matthias" Two weeks into the tournament it looks like Germany has arrived at being the worst European team though I guess we'll battle it out with Belgium eventually. Our MB position is simply shameful. Schölzel is at least young and somewhat talented, but everyone else is I wish Koslowski would experiment a bit more at OH position. Starting Stigrot instead of Geerties today is already a first step, and finally also Vanjak got some time on court. I want to see Orthmann back in the ...

2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

Quoted from "LLOYD" I always expect Italy that game because even their clubs from serie A2 have a great defence. If Sylla was 188-190 cm like Egonu she could attack better than now's. She needs heigh balls and not close to blocks because she was not master like l.Bosetti using block Yes, Italy doesn't have the issue of most European teams, that they can't manage to exert the exactly right pressure and lose often because of making too many faults, so the better Asian teams are comfortably counti...

2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

And Russia handed over Germany another defeat, I can't count them at all (there are really many of them) - despite Lippmann increased her maximum firing speed to 99 km/h, but she was blocked twice in fourth set. Overall no bad match by Germany, but this is not enough on this level.

The third set saw Russia reinstating the superiority we are used to in Germany. I think, Russia will now finish in four. Fetisova proves once more to be an outstanding middle and Lippmann marked a 98 km/h attack ball.

The story of the second set was simply, that Russia had the better start and transported it as top team to the end, leveling the sets. Anyway, still good play by Germany overall, with a better start in third they have still their chances I think.

2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

Well done by Germany in first set, playing bravely, serving and playing well overall. If they can keep up the good work, they might have a chance today. Especially Lena Stigrot attacked well, she is used even occasionally playing opposite and to take responsibility. Overall, it is never easy for them to play Russia, a team, against them they lose nearly all the time with a truely mighty block...

Today I have one of the rare opportunities to watch live a match on sportdeutschland.tv of German NT vs. Russian NT. It is hard to tell, what to expect, despite the Russians are favourite as all the time, this is not that clear as mostly I think.

Germany - VBL 1. Bundesliga 2018/2019

Quoted from "Nirk" Will it be an open race with Annie Cesar or is Roosa as good as last(first) Liberos of Stuttgart? Honestly, at this moment I can only do guessing about that. Principally speaking, Stuttgart tries always to hire an experienced and quality proved Libero, and the Fin may be the one. What is not sure, how she overcame her heavy injury last season, only future will tell. With Annie Cesar we have a really usable backup of course, so I think we are well prepared on that position any...

Quoted from "sitenoise" Quoted from "Matthias" Slightly off-topic: the award for the ugliest shirts definitely goes to Team USA It looks like they simply took the cheapest available. Agree. It was distracting College style?
