    First 3 teams will be qualified to pools E and F.
    Pool E: teams of pool A and C
    Pool F: teams of pool B and D


    except for japan arranged their team in a weaker pool
    i think WCH06 is a good way to do volley


    but i think Fivb shoud stop holding all the matches in japan lol
    FIVB need to promote volley over the world
    in germany, brazil, poland, holland, cuba, Qudar in middle east


    qutar is realy rich and this years Asian Game is so beautifully organised with good courts, i must recommend this
    they invest 30 billion us dollars into facilities each year :shock:

  • yeah you are right, not all tournaments should be held in japan and im happy that the european championship will take place in Belgium and Luxenbourg (and not in japan :lol2: )


    btw, im sure that some users would like to go and watch the ECH, so maybe we will make a little meeting? :blush: :wink:

    oooo, i love to see the european matches, yeah, thats good
    people said italy is the best in holding all those matches in italy and best players go to italy to play,
    i think they will probably dominate :P

    Netherland can get the semi-final easily


    I think its gonna be a duel of three: Holland,Poland and Serbia who'll fight for the two semi-final tickets. Preferably with Poland making it into the semi-finals... :aggress:

  • How are Belarus, Slovakia, Czech Republic and France? I don't know them yet. Which good players do these teams have?


    Do you think that Bulgaria and Croatia will be the surprise teams? I think yes, especially Croatia with Poljak, Osmokrovic, Barun and Popovic. Will Marinova and Petkhova play in Bulgarian NT?


    What about Belgium with the fantastic De Carne? Will the Spanish NT become stronger now that Spanish players play in the League with and against Sokolova, Glinka, Mroz, Tom, Demir, Rosner ... I think it is a good training for Spanish players.

    i dont know, but somehow im not feeling it....
    maybe some of u think different... :roll:


    :shock2: looks like they couldnt afford a good graphic designer...it looks ridiculous :lol2:

  • "Nastja" wrote:

    just a question....
    dont u think that this weird ugly ball looks like casper?


    probably casper was the inspiration for this "weird ugly ball", which more looks like a child's drawing...
    Maybe it's from the same people who came up with this mascot :lol: :
