  • Yesterday Makowski said- if I will stay next year Poland will play in Montreaux, Yeltzin Cup and European League with Young Players.

    What a childish behaviour :lol: only spikes without reception, sets, blocks and serves.

  • What a childish behaviour :lol: only spikes without reception, sets, blocks and serves.

    This is well understood as Gozde is a receiver. Therefore, for her, reception = volleyball. Things like spikes, blocks etc don't count much as this is not what she is normally doing.

  • it is so funny


    Furst got the Best Blocker in 2009, 2011 and 2013
    Kozuch got the Best Scorer in 2009, the Best Spiker in 2011 and the Best Server in 2013


    :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:


    Although statistics didn't indicate Furst as best blocker, she is the best blocker in Europe :obey: this might be the only fair award given by CEV :whistle: Rasic is also very good blocker but she is not as consist as Furst

  • We all know about their behavior :players and supporters it's pathetic.
    BTW Svetlana Kryuchkova gave an interview after the game that she's grateful and thankful to Germans supporters in the hall she said they didn't do anything to make Russian players felt uncomfortable ,it's going to be another story if "other" country host this tournament and we all know which country she referred to.

    There are many "other" countries although THAT country has been seriously notorious, I agree :). But try to recall the 2011 ECH final. Serbia was the best team of that tournament but the final wasn't their day. Some people may not like it here but I think that Germany was stripped of the deserved gold that day by the "home" refereeing, very much due to the pressure from Serbia fans.

  • Every time Kryuchkova came back to Nt she won a gold medal: world championships 2006 and 2010, european championship 2013... Just to say...


    Now Russia has 2 strong liberos. Kryuchkova is more receiver than digger, but Malova playing just in difence worked very well until now.

  • If things like spikes, blocks don't count for Her only reception = volleyball She should write- Russia only receives.

  • Congratulations Russia totally deserved victory. As for Germany they played better than Russia as a team imo, but to be honest sometimes there is anything could be enough to beat your opponent. Russians has huge physical advantage against others.

    So she doesn't want to play in Turkey, who cares.

    That's why countries host such competitions! Some people are watching the games to SUPPORT their teams and some are there just to view it. It also feels ironic to hear that from a Russian person. :white:

    Gözde is a good player, probably one of the best defensive OHs in Europe, however she is really ignorant. Russia was far the best NT in this tournament and noone could compete with them at all. Serbia and Germany were the most difficult opponents they could face and Russia didn't even give them a chance to win. Just because they couldnt receive great and didnt use their middles against Germany doesnt mean that they were playing bad volleyball. IMO Gözde gets more and more spoiled when Esra is not in NT any longer. :hit:

    But it's possible to support the home team without at the same time being hostile to their opponents. German team got great support in the whole tournament, but the audience also always praised the performance of their opponents and for example did not whistle during the opponent's serve like audiences in other countries always do.
    Besides, in this tournament there were many spectators in ALL matches, not like in other countries when there are 10,000 people when the home team plays and 250 when the home team is not playing...

    Both players are professional yet both have made inappropriate comments. Someone should introduce Sonsirma to Kryuchkova, I can see the beginning of a long lasting friendship. :rolll:

  • Russia consists of tall players and that makes their style look less charming..i think less tall players' volleyball style looks nicer, bcz they happen to be more energetic,agile,defensive etc....thats why i dont like Russian style volleyball.however,i like Koseleva and Morozova's game..they are fast.
