2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

I still haven't caught up with all the latest posts here but already spent some time cleaning the thread from all the physical appearance topics. Please, this is a warning and be reminded that this is a tournament thread and all appearance opinions and discussions should happen in another thread (General section -> Whatever-the-thread-for-sexiness-or-appearance-is). People come here to read about volleyball, so please respect that! I am not the only person who is fed up with appearance posts. It...

Quoted from "Kaziyski" Hi guys, why am I experiencing issues when I try to send PM? Because it doesn't work anymore, unfortunately. The issue is not just technical.

CEV Champions League 2019

CEV have apparently planned new changes to the CL format as of 2018-2019. Source No more Final 4, eventually neutral final match host, no more hosts (if part of the competition) qualifying directly to the final(s). Seeded teams, guarenteed spots for stronger federations, fewer teams gaining access through the preliminary qualifiers. According to CEV, "this ranking reflects the investments and performances of all teams representing the same country in Europe’s elite competition." This is the firs...

USA Men's NT 2018

Quoted from "Bahkawdi" Definitely their easiest weekend so it makes sense to give those guys a bit of time off. Hopefully they don't drop an easy one I don't see how this weekend is easier than Week 2 (Brazil, Japan, Korea) and Week 3 (Canada, Australia, Germany).

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Quoted from "TimHH" all matches of VNL will be streamed here: http://sportdeutschland.tv/search?q=VNL%20Herren You may need german/austrian/swiss IP though........ Yes, I saw that, too, but thanks for the hint anyway! However, I am still experiencing issues right now, the ARG-USA game is on and I can't get the stream started. Does Sportdeutschland work for anyone right now? I was also considering whether or not to pay FIVB this 20 euro for the entire tournament, but having found out about Sport...

FIVB World Tour 2018

Quoted from "saishuu" Bruno will be playing with Pedro Solberg, while Alison will play with... André. Yes, from the André/Evandro partnership, current world champions. I don't even know... Poor Evandro. Seems like André's decision took him by surprise. Hmm, so who's left for Evandro? That's really unfortunate. EDIT: source So, here is the deal explained. Evandro is pairing up with Vitor Felipe, it seems. George Wanderley and Guto are said to be looking for partners.

FIVB World Tour 2018

Quoted from "saishuu" Not sure where to post this, but the Alison/Bruno Schmidt duo (OG champions in Rio) have split. I would also post it here, it is fine as it is. But what happened and why? Who are their respective new partners?

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

So, if Bruno is really going in direction Civitanova, why did he initiate the whole Stoychev-is-the-Devil circus just to get him fired? Both troublemakers left Modena, the club they so passionately loved and to which they declared their eternal love and loyalty. This is just ridiculous and unprofessional, in my opinion. And whereas we all know how the Ngapeth deal will end in Russia, I am very curious to see how long Bruno will feel "motivated" in Civitanova. Is there some background behind the ...

Men's World Championship 2018

Quoted from "andrea" Quoted from "Rains" No Sokolov for the NT season. He will undergo knee surgery on June 4. It's not the first time that Sokolov misses the NT season. It's a pity that Bulgaria NT has lost the most important player again. Has the Bulgarian volleyball federation ever discussed with Lube the timing of the surgery, for example, the beginning of the club season? The Federation surely not, perhaps only Konstantinov, but he already declared that he hadn't talked to Sokolov. It was ...

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Well, Bulgaria is also the smallest country of all elite teams It is a non-negligible fact when it comes to roster depth. If we consider Slovenia (theoretically, and only as of recently) in that elite group, then only Slovenia has a smaller population and they might be considered a part just because of the current "golden" generation. So, quite naturally, Bulgaria has always had a limited choice and it is of no minor significance that they have quite often been in the world's elite despite the d...

CEV Champions League 2018

Last night I saw the reason why I was disappointed with Perugia's win against Lube at the semifinals last year. We would've had another classy final in Rome, too. Perugia, albeit just crowned as the new Italian champion, might play better than Lube in Italy at times, including all home matches, but I trust Lube more when it comes to those international battles. I think that even from a neutral perspective it felt quite overwhelming that Lube almost did the impossible on Kazan's own turf. An incr...

CEV Champions League 2018

Quoted from "Rains" Quoted from "YavorD" Please, comments about female volleyball players don't belong here! Yeah, I was also surprised there is almost no discussion going on here Where is everybody? I used to have pages and pages to read before I could write something. Before I go anywhere close to the two semifinals I wanted to once again stress on the ridiculous amount of unprofessionalism surrounding volleyball. Laola1, as official online broadcaster, had streaming and sound sync issues, gr...

Germany - Volleyball Bundesliga (VBL) 2017/18

For a second season in a row Heynen loses the title in the final play-offs in a pretty much similar fashion. True, Friedrichshafen were the favourites this year, but we knew it right from the beginning of the season that they will crumble the moment they meet an in-form physical team. Berlin had had a fluctuating and even disappointing season but played very consistently during the finals and especially yesterday. It was exactly the physical team that Friedrichshafen were always meant to suffer ...

Bulgarian NT 2018

Quoted from "Rains" For Bratoev, Are the other setters not as good as him? I think Seganov should've more chances. Bulgarian NT is getting really old with this choices too. Unfortunately, none of them is. Bulgaria will be in deep trouble (not that they flourish with him) if Georgi Bratoev isn't available. Even when he is imprecise, out-of-form, and slow, he is still the better option. Seganov is a logical choice N2 in this roster. Although, I have to admit, Seganov improved massively since movi...

technical problems/missing posts

Quoted from "shade79@wp.pl" Hi, I got some problems with my username... I haven't used this account for a long time and I forgot my password. Of course I used option of lost password, then I changed it, everything should be fine. Now I see (and probably everyone else sees) that also my username changed and now my email is also my username. It looks weird. I don't understand why it happened and I think I can't change it back myself. Can you help me please? Based on your PM response, things seem ...

Quoted from "ossubtus" does anyone know if joão miguel josé MB is still playing? No, he doesn't play anymore. Don't ask me when he quit, I can't remember. He is the head coach of the Portuguese team Fonte Bastardo from the Azores islands. Here is the proof, they played in the Challenge Cup this year: stats team picture

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

Quoted from "powsoff" Quoted from "YavorD" Quoted from "powsoff" Big changes will be coming to Belgorod - that team truly deserved a good kick in their gluteus. What are the rumours? Those are rather declarations than rumours. The local volleyball tzar Shipulin is once again quitting. This still can be very much undone, however may affect the budget for next season, which is going to be cut anyway. Atm, Belgorod has lost two opps and the main setter. Poroshin is not bad and potentially can deve...

Bulgarian NT 2018

Quoted from "tomen" I remember Valentin Bratoev has announced his retirement from Bulgarian NT in 2015. Therefore, does he go back on what he said? Well, kind of. He and his twin brother talked to Konstantinov before the NT season last year already and both sides made some compromises. Compromises mostly from the Bratoev twins actually. Valentin was already in the wide roster in 2017 but he underwent surgery last year, so he was only theoretically in the NT. This year he might play a bigger rol...
