2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Some observations.. 1) There seems to be an increasing separation between the top 3 and the other 4 (including Italy). It will be interesting to see in this season how this balance will play out. 2) Poland really need Kubiak. His ability to keep his team on the front foot gives the other players a lot of confidence. 3) Brazil hasn't really improved much. Their blocking is probably currently the worst among the teams in the top 6 right now. Bruno seems to be having a loss of form - he lacks preci...

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

I know its too early but imagine things stay as they are and we have the pool of France, USA and Brazil, and the other of Poland, Italy and Russia...That could be quite interesting. Anyhow, apart from France (and USA who seem to have gathered themselves, but also have the home court advantage this weekend) the rest of the teams are very equal. Anyway, I'm glad I I will be at the finals weekend!!!!!!

Quoted from "ryleybarnes" What happen to Brazil for the last 4 sets in Varna? Brazil are having what Serbia are having at the moment.. Everyone looks depressed lol. Lucas' face says a thousand words

Quoted from "saishuu" Quoted from "Agguerro" Quoted from "saishuu" Maurício Souza (MB) has an abdominal injury and is out for (possibly) the rest of the VNL. hopefully we get to see more of Otavio... That's what I'm hoping for, but we'll most likely see Lucão and Isac throughout this weekend since all games are supposed to be difficult (on paper at least)... Brazilian media has also just announced that Lipe is out with an elbow injury too. Lucas Lóh will join the team for the last weekend in Au...

USA is a bit shell shocked by this Serbian team. They probably didn't expect them to play so fearlessly and consistently - not so used to losing lol. Milenkovic single handedly shut down USA opposites Once again USA still needs to work out an out of system plan of play. In the final week, the other teams will aim to exploit this. Serbian team clearly not missing Terzic- they are playing a very relaxed game and enjoying it - USA on the other hand looking very uptight.

Brazil after a good first set and a half looking jaded. If they play like this Italy can be assured of a win. The passing line up of Rosa Maria and Amanda is the stuff of nightmares.... Rosa Maria still plays her usual self - one point for her team and 3 for the opposition Drussyla is missed. Monique is no help for Tandara as a back up.. Good news after this match they don't really need to win any other matches..

And on cue..USA are on to it. 3 man blocks on the Canadian middles and outsides.

Canada's opposites between the two of them were 0/7 in attack...... Canada virtually not using the right side of the court - but they still won the first set. Could have won it with a 6 point margin but in the end barely won it. Not sure they can get away with that from a big blocking team like USA....

Quoted from "saishuu" Drussyla has a hand injury and is out for the rest of the tournament. She's already back in Brazil for treatment. Thats a very big blow for Brazil...maybe Ze should consider Jacqueline....

Quoted from "ryleybarnes" It occurs to me that Heynen must be the most annoying coach on men side. I agree with you a 100000% . CANNOT STAND THAT GUY!

Guimares needs to work on Drussyla's transition movement. Every time she passes a ball in position 3, she barely moves to the outside position to get ready for a set. She doesnt even fake it, showing all the blockers that the ball is going to Tandara. Tandara has to hit over a 3 man block all the time. Also her lazy approach into the ball because she is trying to tip off the block.. Even Plak who has a similar hitting style to hers, but is slower, moves quicker than her in attacking positions. T...

I guess there's no real reason to play Tandara at this stage because she had a long game yesterday and is a valuable asset. Also Brazil knows they will definitely play USa again most likely in the final round - I agree with the tactic of resting your key player and also not showing your cards too early. Every team does it. What I didn't understand is the insistence on Monique for pretty much the whole match. Maybe he has already made up his mind that Rosamaria will be cut from the team? I couldn...

Really dont understand why Rosamaria is not playing...I'm sure she will be wondering that herself. Monique is completely useless in this match. It's really not the type of match up for her..

Quoted from "saishuu" Quoted from "ossubtus" as for the fights involving cubans, you don't know the beginning of it. i have seen video of the cubans physically attacking a brazilian (male) assistant coach (maybe in the GP). also in the GP, two cubans got into a fistfight on the bench (maybe calderon and another girl?). those were the days... I think it was Ramirez? Might be wrong tho. It was Ramirez vs Calderon -cant remember which WGP, but during the time when Italy was so dominant with Aguerr...

The ref from the Brazil- USA game is famous for screwing up. They don't like him in Mexico, and he is Mexican! I watched him screw up a women's match so badly last year.. But the Brazil-USA turned out to be a great game anyway! It's nice when both teams start playing well at the same time. USA v Brazil always guarantee good matches - Felt bad for USA because they started well - perhaps got a little cocky. I'm very interested in the Poland V Italy, and Brazil v Russia match ups next round. I expe...

Its weird that you would start Murillo when you are playing a hard serving team like the USA.... USA are playing like a young and energetic team, Brazil is playing like a jaded team.

I think I would throw Polish coach on the list of most annoying coaches. Watched him in action once in when he was the Belgian coach....He is annoying as hell!
