2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

I know this match isn't exactly the definitive proof of anything because both teams weren't with their best players and the game didn't decide anything, but it's another symptom of a recent trend: every year, little by little, the difference between Argentina and Brazil in volleyball is narrowing. First it was a couple of wins at youth/junior level in men's volleyball, then some argentinian clubs winning south american championship, then a few unprecedented youth/junior wins for Argentina in wom...

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Quoted from "ryleybarnes" Maybe Tillie doesnt want to repeat the mistake last year. They were too tired and that cost them at ECH. Well, but if you want that then just don't make them play the match. Playing them two sets and then benching them is very silly.

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Quoted from "saishuu" I guess Tillie wants to give his bench as much playing time as possible... The starters were only there to put on a brief show for the audience I assume? Well, if they lose the audience is gonna be pissed lol. I don't get what' s the point in doing this, if you already won 2 sets with ngapeth and toniutti just let them close the match.

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

As always France is a tough match-up for our team. We play similar styles but they do everything we do better. Only in setting we can have a very small advantage over them but de cecco isn't here so we're dead meat.

2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

Quoted from "Sidney" Sosa retired after the OG. Not true: http://www.somosvoley.com/notas/mimi-sos…e-la-temporada/ She's resting now but will play WCh. Also, she played in 2017 for NT so she didn't "retire after the OG".

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

I wasn't expecting this at all. Really great match from Tomy Lopez and Zanotti. Loser is shaping up great too, despite his not-great height for a MB he blocks a lot and his serve provides much more than Crer's. I get the feeling that Italy is the team that depends THE MOST on it's serve. In the days it's not working they can lose to many teams that are, in theory, weaker.

Martínez has been deserving to start for a while already. Starting both Conte and Poglajen as OH at the same time is silly since they aren't very good at defense.

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

I don't know why we're playing with this kid as libero when we have several more experienced options in the position... he improved a bit at the end of the set, but he's been a liability in many situations. Also, both yesterday and today we are having an insane amount of attack errors, it's impossible to win against any opponent like this. Even Conte is missing a lot.

Argentina squad for next weekend (at home): S: Cavanna, Sánchez Opp: Ramos, Lima OH: Conte, Poglajen, Lopez, Zanotti, Martínez MB: Loser, Sole, Gallego L: Danani, Massimino Compared to last weekend: Crer, Palacios and Toro are out (for rest). Conte, Poglajen and Sole start playing. De Cecco... still on vacation.

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Again Velasco insisted with Ramos as starter opposite today (and again with low effectiveness %). And Crer/Palacios did not even play, just a bunch of inexperienced players. Does he not care about this competition at all??? next weekend better show a decent squad or the home crowd is going to be angry.

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Quoted from "tomen" I also have a question: Why is only one full-time OP, Bruno Lima, in the roster? Is the left-handed OP, Johansen injured? Johansen is playing the south american games at this moment, As left-handed opposite there is also Jose Luis Gonzalez, but the coach let him (and Alexis Gonzalez, the libero) skip the VNL due to their old age so they don't get too tired. Both will probably play the World Championship too.

wow that was pathetic. I don't get why insist in using Ramos as opp, he was awful yesterday (something like 14 kills out of 40 attempt) and today was also below average. I don't get why you would start him over Lima who is much more used to play that. I'm sure they will show better with Bulgaria anyway.

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Quoted from "pope" That`s fine.... But Sole`s season ended actually a while ago, same time as Wallace and Ivovic and both of them will be playing this weekend....same goes for Poglajen as his team did not even reach the semis.....The season in China ( Conte) ended a while ago and the season over there is shorter. They play at home next week? So does Brazil...still they are going to Italy. Like I said.. there`s no need for Brazil to be playing with their main squad because of their experience..b...

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Quoted from "pope" Argentina is not sending DeCecco, Conte, Poglajen,Sole...I understand playing against China and Korea is waste of time for Brazil...but Argentina is way far behind and for them playing against literally against anyone is a good thing so I don`t see why these "A" players are resting. Motives: a) Those players in particular just finished long seasons and this competition is 15 matches-long. Argentina league (where all players we'll use this weekend play) finished some weeks bef...

USA Men's NT 2018

Quoted from "Rains" What the hell at USA Volleyball not even caring about announcing the team they would take for the first week of VNL. They only have five days before the first match in China.. So the first week it is China, Argentina and Bulgaria. Not the strongest pool for us but Argentina could be a threat depending on their setter. I would probably want some new personnel here. It could be great f time for experiments. I guess we have to bring the best team against Argentina though. Argen...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

Quoted from "Rains" Wasn't 2013 the year Argentina hosted the world league? I mean I agree that was a bad year but being a host nation of world league is a curse. Even Uriarte was starting ahead of De Cecco but they still almost beat Brazil in South American Championship. For Iran, it could be possible that they regressed... ...but with Kovac they almost medaled in the world championship and world league of 2014, with Lozano they made the olympics and with Kolakovic they made their best finish ...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

Quoted from "Rains" I don't see your point. Bulgaria and Germany are weaker from the London Olympics. I never expected them to do better now. By the way Argentina in London defeated Bulgaria Team A. Argentina also got beaten in the South American Championship by Venezuela. I really cannot trust him with his results lately. He also has a terrible knaxk for underestimating opponents nowadays. If CSV decided with the South American Championship as the sole qualifier for the World Championship, the...
