Brazilian League 2017/2018

Maybe the Finals MVP could have been given to Garay but Tandara has really been the most dominant player in the league so she definitely deserves it.

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors & Discussion

Quoted from "Sidney" Gabi and Natalia are almost certain to sign with Minas. So Bartsch is probably not coming to Brazil. I can't imagine them playing for any other team in Brazil except Rio.

Brazilian League 2017/2018

Congratulations to Praia!!!! It's good for the league that there is a new champion but I'm really sad for Fabi. Sesc still did a good job this season considering 3 of their players had surgeries and are not 100% yet.

Turkey- VVSL-Vestel Venus Women's League 2017/2018

Quoted from "leo2017" Quoted from "Sidney" Are you kidding me that FIVB hasn't set the WCC's date?! It is rumored that it will be held in december because so many fivb interntional matches this year. I thought it would be after the WCh but no matter what the schedule is I feel sorry for the players because they will not have any rest. No wonder a lot of players are getting injured.

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors & Discussion

Quoted from "Canter" Quoted from "guilhermessartor" Rumours about Rosamaria (BRA, OH/OPP) & Maja Ognjenovic (SRB, S) in Fenerbahçe. Natália (BRA, OH) left Fenerbahçe well,COuld she do better than Natalia ? In my opinion, an injured Natalia can still do more than a healthy Rosamaria. Besides, I think Natalia will be fine already before the start of the next season. Regarding Maja in Fener, she stayed with Vitra throughout the chaotic season last year, I doubt she will leave the team now when the...

CEV Champions League 2018

Wait, is Natalia really the highest paid player in the league? I always assumed it was Zhu. Anyway, there was an article in the Brazilian media that said that in one of the games Natalia was the one who asked to be benched because she couldn't play with the pain anymore. They said she was already injured during the national team season. I guess it was Ze who overused her. She didn't need to play in Montreux and the South American Championship. FB also has a fault in letting her play through the ...

Brazilian League 2017/2018

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" I have a question to ask and answer with everyone about the 7 point ranked players in Brazil.... 1. So who are they? I know Fabiana, Thaisa,Sheilla, Jaque, Tandara, Natalia and Dani Lins are. Should anyone care to add the whole list? 2. Who among them do you consider the players that still feels like a 7-point ranked player? In my opinion Jaque is nowhere close to the same player she once was. Sheilla is a mystery. Fabiana can be inconsistent. Thaisa is still re...

Brazilian League 2017/2018

Praia always seems to get lost in the important matches. It happened in the previous seasons with the Supercopa and SL finals. This season the team lost the Mineiro Cup (not sure if the name is correct) and now, the Copa Brasil. What I don't get is why does it keep happening since they always have veterans playing. It's not like the team is full of newbies, they actually have Olympic champions who are not new to being in decisive games. I actually thought they could win. Osasco, on the other han...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "ossubtus" well, WGCC was/is totally meaningless!!!! For some fans, yes that tournament is seen as useless but some fans do actually enjoy it. I think the teams that were part of it this year actually took it seriously. China brought the A-team along with Lang Ping, Brazil brought who they could (the ones who weren't injured or pregnant), USA brought back the veterans, Russia brought Kosheleva and Goncharova and Japan also brought its best team. Some tournaments or matches may be se...

Brazilian Superliga 2017-2018

Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" I am curious what happened to Joao Rafael. He is nowhere to be seen. Did an injury occur to him? During one of their games, something happened with his foot or ankle. I'm not sure how serious the injury is though.

Brazilian League 2017/2018

I agree with you Aguerro regarding Gabi and Rosamaria. Although Rosamaria is a slightly more powerful attacker I think she lacks technique. I was only talking about strength of attack in my previous post but if I include technique, reception and stability Gabi would definitely not be replaced by Rosamaria in the team. I think that was clear during the WGCC when Ze preferred to use Gabi and Natalia as the OH duo. Gabi would have played all the matches too but Ze said she was hurt against China so...

Brazilian League 2017/2018

Watching the games I think Rosamaria's problem is that she becomes too emotional in the games and she feels the pressure when playing against strong teams. It happened in the Grand Prix, it happened last season in the league and so far this season it has been happening. Once she becomes marked by opposing teams she dissappears. Now with Paula, I think she's very inconsistent. I also think Lorrene is being wasted in Osasco. She should have gone to a smaller team wherein she could play. What has b...

Women's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Brazil is kind of unstable. They almost lost that 3rd set against Korea. Their next match is against USA which will determine if they get to have a medal in this competition.

Brazilian NT 2017

Quoted from "saishuu" Quoted from "Ayra" But wasn't Gabi called to the NT when she was just 17 or 18 and Natalia was just 16 or 17 when she first joined the NT? What makes them different from the other young players? Btw is Drussyla not joining the U23? Gabi I believe was 19, yes. But that was coming after a superb season in Rexona early in the Olympic cycle (2013). Natália did play in the adult NT at a very young age, yes, but as I said, that was ages ago (12 years, to be precise) and she was ...

Brazilian NT 2017

Quoted from "saishuu" Quoted from "aXeLbEn12" Quoted from "saishuu" Some of you guys need to chill with the U-20/18 girls, they are not gonna be called to the NT any time soon. It's kinda crazy how everyone's putting so much hope onto Júlia Bergmann when she's only like 16. She has big potential, sure, but there's still a long way to go until she makes it to the senior NT (if she does). I think the team is good as it is now. We'll have to see how Edinara and Lorenne perform in the next U23 cham...

Chinese NT 2017

In that match against the Netherlands, China only needed to win 2 sets to remain at the top of their group. After winning those 2 sets, the coach should have rested his main players to avoid tiring them out. What happened may have affected their performance but Italy also did its part to win the game. I do hope that in the next tournament, Lang Ping will be back to re-organize the team.
