2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors & Discussion

Quoted from "crovolley" No way that She will go their. Novara can offer more money than any other Brazilian team and She will play CL with them so I don't think so, if Novara really wants her. I agree that Bartsch would choose Novara over Brazil, but I completely disagree about the money. At least the top 4 clubs are capable of making competitive offers. Minas and Praia Clube are definitely able to offer as much as an Italian club. Plus Minas will play Club world Championship. I don't thunk it ...

Brazilian League 2017/2018

I disagree. Mara and Carol Gattaz for me are better than Mayhara and Juciely, but the two in Rio get to work with Roberta. I think outsides are more equal. Gabi for me is not far superior. She also makes many mistakes in attack, in games with Minas this season. Rosa and Pri make too many direct errors in reception. My opinion, all Minas attackers would be much better with Roberta. Macris not only makes bad decisions, but is also very lazy with her feet. She does not do well with balls tight to t...

Brazilian League 2017/2018

Disappointing for Minas. I believe they have more individual talent than Rio, but they are not the better team. Lavarini made many mistakes. He should have started with Pri and Sonja at OH. Just like the final of South American Championship. Even today Minas was at there best with Sonja on court. Hooker wasn't good, also Rosamaria was not good but Macris was bad as she has been most of the season. The big difference for Minas is setter. If they have the quality of setter of the other 3 semifi al...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors & Discussion

I also do not think Rosamaria is a good fit for Europe. She has not been good at reception or in critical moments. I would much rather have Sonja from Minas. She has been much more consistent. She covers reception for Rosa and has been good in decisive moments against Osasco, Rio, and Fluminense since coming to Minas. In Minas no player attacks well consistently including Hooker because Macris is not a great setter. She is very predictable with her setting. It is difficult for the attackers. I w...

I thought both Americans, Hooker and Newcombe were good. Hooker in attack and Newcombe in Serve, Pass, and defense. They needed a little more help from their Brazilian team mates. I felt Rosamaria, Pri Daroit, and Macris were not great. Macris sets too inconsistant and too many first balls to Hooker. Gabi had a rough match but Rio was better in tough moments. I think Roberta was the big difference. She is way better than Macris. I hope this series goes to 5 matches. Very entertaining!

Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

You can only hope that other players and coaches do not go there in the future. But there will always be girls wanting to play A1. I hope Bjelica does not go there. I'm surprised Barcellini went. They have to aware that Legnano's management is horrible.

Brazilian League 2017/2018

Quoted from "Andre Marquim" Quoted from "USAvolleyfan" Quoted from "saishuu" Minas is a hopeless mess this season. Hiring Macris and keeping Daroit of all people as starter was a mistake. I don't think Macris has been that bad.. also Pri has had many good games.. As I said the problem is everyone wants just to hit hard, and reception line with Rosamaria and Pri is too weak.. I have no idea why Sonja didn't come in, at least to receive For what I understood, watching Lavarini’s interview for Spo...

2017 / 2018 Transfer News

Quoted from "saishuu" Quoted from "SoloBlock" Logan's list is truly impressive! I would love to see her in Germany and Poland before she is done. The only other player I can think of that can come close to Logan's list is fellow American Sonja Newcombe. She has played in Puerto Rico, France, Germany, Turkey 2X, China 2X, Azerbaijan, Italy and Brazil. Sorry for I just find it interesting and Amazing! David Lee (USA NT MB) also comes close: Greece, Russia, Italy, France, Puerto Rico, Portugal, In...

2017 / 2018 Transfer News

Quoted from "Kk15" Quoted from "Diesse14" Pistola isn't anymore the head coach of Sab Legnano.. the team looks more and more hopeless week after week. Now they aired Buonavita as coach and Barcellini as OH. I totally agree that they messed it up: despite they keep denying it it's pretty clear they had problems paying the girls and staff (and also the hall, btw – that's for sure). and 'had problems' could even mean 'they've never paid them' (I don't know it but many rumors seem to suggest that)....

2017 / 2018 Transfer News

Quoted from "Toguttt" Also Sonja Newcombe officially left SAB Legnano, following the financial issues of the club. http://dal15al25.gazzetta.it/2017/12/12/…saluta-legnano/ Many Italian teams are interested in signing her, including Modena and Casalmaggiore. Drews is rumored to sign with Filottrano to replace disappointing Tomsia. Would love to see Sonja back in Italy on a better team or better situation. I think both Sonja and Annie could help teams in the 2nd half of the championship.

USA NT 2017

Quoted from "rbdfabio" To be honest I had no idea who she was until this season when she played in China. As I said, based on her performance in China only. She played good, but nothing special about it, and who lead the team was Rachel Rourke that was scoring 20,30,40 points per match. And it was a team effort, in the 2 first games of the semifinal she did not play because she was sick and still they lost but only in the 5set. She might be a good defensively but I don`t think she`s good enough...

USA NT 2017

Quoted from "rbdfabio" Even without Glass or a any good OPP at the moment, the US has really no reason to worry, The Americans always get to be starters on their club teams, even when playing their first season, they never bench. Carlini will play her first season and will be a starter right way, Hancock is not a good setter but she played 2 season as starter in Poland and you can expect her to be starting in Italy or Turkey for the next 4 years, which means they have 4 years to get there. Same...

2016 / 2017 Transfer Rumors & Discussion

Quoted from "USAvolleyfan" Quoted from "Bartek" How many Clubs in China are rich? Someone said Shanghai and Tijanin are the richest clubs.. Beijing also has some money Most teams in China are able to pay much more than European clubs and for a shorter season. Fujian also has a big budget and I know Sichuan has a good budget and was paying Rachel Rourke a large amount, especially compared to Europe clubs. Based on what I know, China is the highest paying league in the world right now.

2016 CEV Challenge Cup

Trabzon definitely had a much better team last year which qualified themy in their first season for Challenge Cup. They had Sonja Newcombe, Judith Pieterson and Ergul, but all these players left. I think they have been a bit lucky with the draw of games in challenge cup. I don't think Odintsovo is very strong at all, not compared to previous years when they had Malykh and Bavykina. I think the Turkish league continues to improve its depth. But I am shocked with the poor performance of Bursa. I t...
