Transfer news rumors season 2008/09

  • A new middle blocker.Although ı don't have any idea about the game of Stalls a good MB was exactly what Eczacıbaşı needed.I wonder whether she will play against Vakıfbank G.S. today in the Tukish Cup semi final. :?:

    I'm not sure she will play in Turkish cup or not, 4 foreign players can't play at the same time, Vesna, Nancy or Mirka shouldn't play to make room for her, maybe she will play just in iecl or Neriman will play instead of Nancy.

  • ^ Tracy is a good middle blocker/attacker. If im not mistaken, she is an Olympic Alternate for the US Team. So being an Olympic alternate(against Bown, Scott-Arruda, Joines), you must be atleast good if not excellent. Good thing she is chosen by Eczacibasi. She is part of the NCAA champion team of Nebraska in 2006 where Sarah Pavan (Italian League) is her former teammate.

    "[size=8]It's years and years of work and sacrifice and dedication. Along with a lot of these girls, we've sweat and we've bled and we've cried together in past Olympics. It just brought tears to my eyes, & I'm more than thrilled. This will be forever." -LOGAN MAILE LEI TOM (Silver Medallist - 2008 Beijing & 2012 London Olympic Games, 2011 World Cup runner up, 2003 & 2007 World Cup 3rd place, 2002 World Champs runner up, 4-time World GrandPrix Champs)
