Japanese NT 2018

Quoted from "sitenoise" Quoted from "akitoakie" floor defense is Japan's identity. with this new coach, it seems like everything goes missing. they barely defense, and their attacjing is so and so. i have not been convinced that this new coach is going to take Japan to the next level, or even close to the 2012-2015 Japan. I gave Coach Nakada the benefit of the doubt for the first year. I'm losing faith. Others may not share my love for Arisa Sato but the fact that she wasn't picked for the NT i...

Japanese NT 2018

Quoted from "sitenoise" Quoted from "Kakeru" Quoted from "Canter" sorry but Miya Sato and Miyashira are the same setter or not ? Not the same setter, miya sato plays for hitachi rivale team, while haruka miyashita plays for okayama seagulls. Both are on wide roster for Japan NT 2018. And Haruka Miyashita is one of the best floor defenders in the world! please bring this Japan team back. I miss their high flying full on defense and fast and powerful attacking. long gone were the days of Kimura, ...

Japan NT 2018

Japan has a very strong young players and it will be good for them in the long run. I hope they can finally step up to the same level as their women who seems to be going down a little bit. The departure of Kimura is really felt. I have high hopes for these generation of young player. Hope they can play more games together and improve more.

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors & Discussion

Any news on Tomkom? Is she finally taking her much deserved break? I remember she was supposed to take a break last year but Fenerbahce called her right back.

Japan NT 2018

Otake did well last year on World League. That was the moment I fell in love with the Ishikawa-Yanagida-Otake. I wish Japan will utilize him more. Nishida is a great surprise but Otake can be lethal weapon, too. Anyway, who is his dad & sister? This is new info for me. Yamauichi is my fav of the two starting MB. He seems like a warm person on court. Fuji used him very well. In fact, Fuji uses his MBs very well. Is Fuji the startting setter? Japan always favor their setters short, it seems. If Is...

I really need the Koga-Ishii-Shinnabe trio to play again. With Shinnabe and Ishii on the back court, Koga can focus on killing the ball.

Japan NT 2018

With Nishida on the rise, Otake is no longer needed? I think his height is his advantage. What happened to Ishikawa anyway? I have been waiting for the Ishikawa-Yanagida duo since last year's World League. This duo worked really well together. Is Yamauchi the usual starter MB? He improved a lot this year compared to WL 2017.

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Quoted from "Ryu Takamiya" Japan won Italy the first time in 11 years Nishida! What an amazing boy With Nishida on the rise, Otake might be losing his spot to him. Hmmmm. Still bump that there is no Ishiikawa but he consistently updates his instagram with pics from the match and stats.

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Y'all seems to know a lot about the "style" of volleyball of these teams. Does anyone care to explain what kinda style each country have when it comes to playing volleyball? Is it like fast play VS slow high ball kinda style?

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Quoted from "saishuu" Douglas saved Brazil's ass today. Who would've thought. Quoted from "mosi" well. didn't expect Iran to take two sets from Brazil with this starting lineup. Toukhteh, Hazratpour, Kazemi, Sharifi and M. Gholami ! they could even win the match which would be the biggest upset of all time ! (at least for me) great match overall maybe someone of these kids become something special in future. The youngsters (OPP and MB) were indeed really good! I was surprised Iran was playing w...

2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

Quoted from "sitenoise" Quoted from "akitoakie" Koga is not playing. Ishikawa is not playing. I can only depend on Ishii and Yanagida. Oh Japan.Please don't do this to me again next time y'all playing. I just whispered that Koga's not there because of my conspiracy theory that She and Yuki don't, let's say, compliment one another. Who's Ishikawa and Yanagida? the male counter-part of Koga and Ishii. but unlike these girls (according to you), they truly compliment each other. seems like both pla...

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Quoted from "saishuu" Quoted from "akitoakie" I always have faith in Douglas since I first watch him play in 2014/15. He is not like the other Brazilian OH, his approach is a little bit different. But since he is a little bit skinny/lighter than all the other OH, he makes it work. Isaac is a huge potential, I wish he will improve his lateral movements and his approach to attacking. It is time to put younger players to play full time. And please, I don't know about Murilo but I believe he doesn'...

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Quoted from "saishuu" Good win for Brazil, I was skeptical they could do it. I'm really happy to have seen Douglas on court, and he actually delivered! Weird timing for his attack to return to form, right against Russia out of all teams. Great to see Isac solidifying his status as a starter too (bye, M. Souza!). Thales also outclassed Murilo into oblivion. It's obvious who should be playing. I always have faith in Douglas since I first watch him play in 2014/15. He is not like the other Brazili...
