Anyway, Italy today is celebrating the blocks like Perugia does (Osmany included): I guess it's not a coincidence they started to do that when playing vs Atanasjievic

Last year the Federation gave to Zaytsev the permission to use the shoes with a covered logo ONLY during the training sessions, NOT during the official matches Again, I think you're perfectly right about the fact Lanza, Giannelli, Piano etc were among the biggest Zaytsev opponents in the 'shoes gate', but that doesn't mean Blengini made the convocations on this base.

Scarpetta, I think you're a bit delusional on this topic (still being right about Lanza/Zaytsev being the face of the two 'sides' of the last summer, though): it's just a question of physical training and resting, something that unfortunately we can't afford to offer to Giannelli because he needs to have perfect amalgama with everybody. Blengini explained he was going to start with the Italian finalists because they were physically ready, and then let them rest, and viceversa. No need to read hu...

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

Quoted from "andrea" For those subscribing directly from FIVB, is the streaming quality better? It worked pretty fine for me, but for the live streaming I mostly used it on my phone, so may be on a PC it would be different. The on demand matches are ok on PC, even if sometime not perfectly HD (but that may be my WiFi, even with Netflix I experience the same, and Netflix drops to a worst quality actually...) Overall I'm happy I subscribed, because for now RaiSport is giving most of the matches n...

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

I've a doubt about Mazzone/Cester as well, but Cester serve is so annoying that not using it seems almost a crime to me Anyway, today Mazzone did entered the court for Cester, at some point. I agree that Lanza is important for the team, but I have an hard time deciding if it's better to bring Antonov OR Randazzo + Parodi (as second row back up, but when you have Lanza and Juantorena...), or Antonov AND Randazzo and no Parodi. And Parodi his my cupcake, be aware of it, so I don't say it lightly

2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

I'm a bit sorry we lost the 4th set, but obviously pretty happy about how we played overall!! If I have to point a bad thing, I would say too many direct errors in reception (I don't know the numbers, though), but when we did receive, imho we did good enough. Same for the serve: probably too many mistakes (again, I don't have the numbers), but on the other hand we did put a lot of pressure on Brazil reception, practically with everybody beside Anzani and Randazzo (who scored with an ace the seco...

Italian NT 2018

Actually, I don't think there's any coach that can make this Italy stronger than China, Serbia or USA... (and for 'be stronger' I don't mean 'happen to win a match sometimes', which is always possible despite the difference of strength). We simply don't have good enough OHs, imho (unfortunately). And in general we probably have only 2 real top players, Moki and Egonu (even if she still makes a lot of errors), plus good/very good MBs and good/decent setters. Still, I do believe last summer – befo...

Quoted from "LLOYD" Chirichella, Egonu and etc will not play well because of their coach. The same that brought us to the WGP silver medal at his first attempt with a renewed team, you mean? I watched the first two set vs Turkey and the second vs Poland, there were good things and several bad things, but I wasn't expecting that much, also because the 4-fast-attack-solutions it's an hard system to embrace, even if you've already played it (and many didn't, also among the 'oldest'). Still, I was ...

Anzani after all may stay in Perugia (instead of Modena, but it appears he DID signed with Modena. I still wonder why...)

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

About Lube, comments/infos by Cormio, Lube general director. Grebennikov had rush to find an alternative (? I knew Lube didn't want a foreign libero anymore, is it possible it was Grebennikov the first to leave? When Lube is stronger than Trento?...) Sander had an year of contract (I think he meant 'another' year) and a very high fee to broke it (so, it was convenitene for Lube to let him go because Sada payed them). Leal – They're working on it, it's complex because he is changing nationality. ...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

Various rumors: - Pesaresi in Milano - Milano may aire Yosifov (Galassi is going to Trento and Piano physical and contractual conditions are still unknown – he belongs to Modena and he is on loan in Milano, for the record) - De Pandis may go in Verona, that thought also of Perry; with an Italian libero they hope to grab Holt (Modena has already closed with Anzani and has Mazzoni... I still don't understand why Anzani went there, by the way. Well, beside money, may be...) Otherwise they'll aire A...

Quoted from "Diesse14" I don't like Baranowicz, so I think Spirito should go behind Giannelli: less problems and more talent! About that, you also have to think what Blengini would do in case of need. I mean, you may think Spirito is better than Bara (which I don't judge, also because I prefer Sbertoli ), but if Blengini feels he can't actually trust him as a back up setter if things get messy (last year he was only used a server instead of Piano, and it didn't worked very well either), while h...

It's even seems that Sirci's offer (arrived two days ago, after Zaytsev interviews) is quite big, it's higher than his previous one, for two years. Second only to Leon offer, in the team. Weird situation!

@beri I actually appreciated it, but I'm not a graphic expert! @akiya, pope About the streaming, I just hope it won't be all geoblocked in Italy if Rai will transmit few Italian matches... (It may no be the case for the women, but for the men yes). OT Akiya, nice avatar! I love sense8 as well, can't wait for the final episode in less than a month!

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

Quoted from "Rains" In my opinion Zaytsev and Russell are stronger than him. But this isn't the question: if it wasn't for non-sport-related problem, Perugia would have preferred to keep Zaytsev without doubt. As for Russell, the discussion isn't if he is better than Lanza, but if it's worthy to put Podke on the bench to keep him titular (considering that Italy doesn't have such strong MBs). I'm not so sure about it. May be for others top OHs it would be, but they're all taken by now, I think. ...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors and Discussion

As far as I understand Trento will have both Nelli and Vettori, but if Vettori situation will variate (aka, if Trento will be able to get rid of him or he will stop...), it would also be interesting having both Nelli and Argenta... but I guess the best thing for them is find a team where to be titular. I heard rumors that Argenta may go in Ravenna, since Buccheger will probably follow Soli (coach) and Orduna in Monza. Rains, as I wrote Polo doesn't seems a chance. @Shame, I know you don't like L...
