  • So Superliga won't have guest teams anymore. I like it better. It was just useless have 2 bottom teams from abroad.

  • Alekno is using Mikaylov as libero in friendly matches. Does this mean he will continue to play as OH? Or will he play as not classical but receiving OPP ? In friendly matches, Leon is making too many receiving mistakes, with using Mikaylov as receiver, Alekno will hide Leon's deficiencies. Smart coaching ;)

  • Mikhaylov probably didn't fully recover after injury, so it's smart move indeed. He can practice passing, no matter if he will play as OH or receiving OP so as to cover Leon in reception ^^

    Mikhaylov played as libero because Verbov is recovering from surgery, Babichev was ill, Salparov on WCH. He cant spike still and Alekno wanted to give him time to "feel" court again.

  • Leon-Anderson will be a fantastic offensive OH due but Zenit's reception will suffer. Considering that their setter won't be as experienced as Grbic, reception will be more important than before.
    I think Alekno will let Mikaylov receive in some positions.
    By the way; I don't exclude the idea of using Leon as OPP .

  • So Fakel kept the good starting at the russian champioship and sent Kazan home at the russian super cup. This team really looks promising, Vlasov, Volkov, and Klyuka all from 1995 at starting six,such big talents, looking forward to see how they will manage to display a good level throughout the season
    .
    Does somebody know if Klyuka has already got russian citizenship ? i see he has already played for youth belarussian team, and were not part of russian youth team even tough his potencial ... what about new MB of Belogoria, i've read Makushin ( or Pyunov ) got the russian citizenship, but if he had already played for Ukraine his chances are very slow to go get called for NT

  • I agree. A young and very, very promising squad they have built in Novy Urengoi. They are already the third team this season to beat Zenit in their own sports hall, perhaps the surprise of the Russian Cup tournament so far. Klyuka's performance against Ural was phenomenal. You don't see a 19-year old at 209 cm with such numbers that often. Vlasov, the other youngster, is 212 cm. It's a good question regrading the citizenship, I personally have no information. Klyuka is said to be part of the Belorussian Junior NT during the 2011-2012 season, which means two years ago. Despite that, Russian Junior and Youth NT have no worries regarding lack of talent.


    Alekno, on the other side, seems to have a lot ot problems recently. His team looks out of shape. I don't know if they will be granted a Wild Card for the Cup's Final Six in Belgorod.

  • To be honest, Zenit looks terrible without Grbic. And the reception is just a joke in this team. Without forgetting Spiridonov is there and we all know we can expect everything from him. :lol:

  • Spiridonov and Anderson havent played or practice for 2-3 weeks before championship start. Leon injured, Sivozhelez is comingback after and injury so their reception at the moment is "real"
