  • Italian NT 14 list for WC:

    Setters: Travica, Boninfante

    OHs: Savani, Zaytsev, Parodi, Rosso (surpriseeeeee! And I lost my time thinking about the reasons for calling Kovar vs the reasons for calling Maruotti...)

    Opposite: Lasko, Sabbi, Fei (but Antinelli staurday said that it is possible that Berruto will use him in different position, also as a MB. Antinelli said also "as a receiver" - I didn't had the chance to notice that, but I read he is receiving sometimes in Belluno... - but honestly I can't believe he will recive :what: Ok, Savani isn't a reception genius, but at least he does that daily...)

    MBs: Mastro, Bira, Buti (bye bye Rocco)

    Liberos: Bari, Giovi

  • I don't understand the reason why Vermiglio is not any more in the NT

    It's possible, you just have to believe in yourself and really not care what other people say, because I've heard it all.
    If you let someone else dictate what you're going to do in life, then you won't get there.

    Non so neanche come onestamente: in due mesi ero di nuovo in campo.

  • Rosso? I don't know much about this player. I'm surprised seeing him in a roster instead of Maruotti. Any infos about Rosso? How is he doing? I didn't watch any Pallavolo Padova matches...

    Blah. I don't like Boninfante. I don't quite know why but I just don't like him. I miss Vermiglio, already. Although Drago is now the first setter and he's quite good ;)

    And my last word: FEI! Fantastico! :thumbsup:

    Edited once, last by bella ().

  • Guys, I heard that something happened to Bari. He collided with Parodi during the training. And his playing on WC is a big question mark. Maruotti was called to join the team in Japan. I will be glad if someone can keep us updated with any news about him. I mean our Italian friends ;)

  • I will.

    BTW, from the XR seems there aren't broken bones, but we need to wait for an MR. Is not sure that he won't be on the 14 list, but is probable.


    But also the female NT started with an injuried right before the beginning of the tournament... :rolll:

  • Yeah and Italian NT female has been going so far like a thunderstorm through this tournament :P

    Anyway, I hope that Bari will be on 14.
