2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

I wouldn't sleep on Ensing. In the last game against France, when he was sent in to replace Anderson, USA played better and he is also doing a great job against Russia. He's a generic opposite but he doesn't commit a lot of mistakes for a rookie.

Does Grbic want to win? Changing lineups in a very important group is risky. I still believe they can win this but the way they are playing... this could go bad for them in any second. Italy could reap the benefits if they are not careful.

Juantorena had an elbow injury from week 1. I don't know how long it takes for that to heal but it's possible Blengini didn't want to worsen his condition after the argentina leg. I still believe Zaytsev should've been part of week 3 or 4 of VNL. He's not young anymore but I don't think he's the type to break easily. Juantorena gets irritated so fast so the rest would've helped him cool off. Blengini made poor plans after week 2. Baranowicz should've come with Giannelli all the time especially a...

I agree with Maruotti . It's true he had a lot of errors in attack but out of system and against the russian block... I wouldn't blame him for that. Parodi made some serves count for Italy but the form is not there yet. I don't know if he'll ever reached that atleast with his reception before WCH but I am very doubtful of his participation. His place could be given to a defensive specialist like Rossini or Balaso and I think Nelli will be more useful to Italy. Lanza is a mess. His stats may make...

Poletaev was terrible but it's only a matter of time he will get used to Kobzar. Italy's average-sized OH didn't help at all. Just couldn't get through Russia's intimidating block.Zaytsev did his best but a man is only a man.

There's no chance of winning for Italy if they don't move Zaytsev to pos 4.

Quoted from "barnabas" What could be the reason for Russell to trade roles with Anderson mid-games? Christenson and Anderson still have no connection at pos 2. Anderson passes better in pos 6 and Russell is more efficient in attack.

USA qualifies if they win atleast a tournament point or Italy/Serbia loses another match. Russia needs to beat any of USA/France/Italy to qualify. Brazil and Poland are on the same group so one of the teams will lose a match. Serbia needs to win all matches in their group if Italy sweeps their group. Italy with a very complicated and difficult fixture. Their fate depends on their own doing and the results of other contending teams in other groups. Canada needs to win all their matches with maxim...

Quoted from "saishuu" Speaking of Jaeschke, is there any news on his injury? Torn ACL. No recovery times given but that's roughly 6-9 months after surgery.

Quoted from "ravhin2j3" What's with this Japan team. They can go and play like the rest of the great teams. Is this going to be the sudden reversal of fortune? The JAP W team is going a bit down and the JAP M is on the rise? Because they are playing against weakened teams. Argentina's level will rise dramatically when their key players like De Cecco returns to the national team.

Fantastic serving from USA. When you're serving 8-1. It's difficult to lose the match. Lol Russell saved US from some bad spots while serving. Less erratic in my opinion and it helped a lot in the block and creating some needed separation especially in the second set.

Maybe they just wanted a taller block at 4. Finger hasn't been given that many balls compared to last night it seems.

Refs tried to help Canada out of the hole they were in. USA kept their cool but what was the yellow card for? Glad nothing significant happened to flip the win on the other side for Canada.

USA blocked pretty well because their serve is going in consistently. No discontinuity so the rhythm's back. Ben Patch made an unexpected serving run and played his best in the second set.

Patch can't kill the ball in awkward positions. Nearly all the ball going to Russell are out of system and he commited the most faults during the 1st set.

Quoted from "Helios" Quoted from "Rains" Quoted from "Helios" Reichert is very important for the German team. I'm also impressed by how they have improved in the last few weeks. I would say the credit goes to coach Giani. I don't want to say this but we should also give credit to the VNL format and the fact this is also Germany's main tournament if we are excluding the mediterranean games. I also partly agree with you. This is the most important tournament for them, so they have to make use of ...
