    For me looks a bit weird, no Nikolay and Vlado Nikolov (he was much better than Milushev in last friendlies...), Bozhilov is also missing, while we have 3 Setters :what: is it official Bulgarian roster for Wagner's Memorial? Can someone confirm it ?(

  • Plamen wants to test somethings without really revealing the tactics for the WCH too early :)

  • Konstantinov already pissed me off not taking Niki Nikolov to Poland :thumbdown: He's lucky I'm not going to Krakow, I would be a bit disappointed - to put it mildly - not seeing Niki there. Better for him this test or whatever it is won't end on not taking Niki on WCh...

    It seems no Zibi at all in WCH :wall: :down: :wall: I just can't understand, he did quite well in Modena and is clearly better than Bociek and especially Konarski

    Nikolov has problems with his knee and stays in Bulgaria for rehabilitation

  • Any link for RUS x CHN game? :sos:

  • Sth serious? :S I hope he will be ready on WCh


    I think not - some chronic pain to be relieved I guess :)

  • Poland - Bulgaria 1:1 - link for the video here - http://24streamsy.okis.ru/stream-7.html

  • I hope Wlazly's injury won't be serious. ;( I don't wanna see Konarski as a starter in WCH.

  • Fifth set is starting now. Bulagaria from 24:22 to 24:26 in fourth......

  • Woah, Bulgaria's serves in the end were insane.

    Or Poland's receiving suddenly became ridiculous.


    Kudos to the outside hitters though. Wini has been definitely amazing today. He was literally everywhere, receiving, spiking, blocking. Mika on the other hand did pretty good job, although the last few points might mean too much pressure for him. And he could always polish his receiving skills.


    I am very concerned with Wlazly's conditions now. I don't believe this is Bulgaria's A team, at least Brateov and Skrimov could be starters and in that case this team would be stronger. (We all saw how terrible Zhekov today was) And I guess Poland without Wlazly would have very little chance against Bulgaria next time.


    Konarski again presented how to play a horrible opposite. Great job, I wish I could sponsor you a flight ticket to whichever place I would never see you play again.


    Antiga needs to find some mechanism of using Kurek. You cannot bring a 206cm player as an extra-tall spectator. I hope Antiga does have his ideas that he wouldn't share just yet.

    You and who else?
    P.S. Your opinion on Bulgarian game today besides setting? :)
