    Potenza Picena should've been in A1 this season. Do you know why they are not and are now back in A2?

  • Potenza Picena will go back to A2

  • They needed more money to play in Serie A1, they tried till the end to find it, but they couldn't, so they decided the wiser think to do was styaing in Serie A2, where their budjet will still be enough.
    More clubs should do the same :!:

  • So Piacenza and Latina are certain to be kept alive next season?

    Sorry I've read too fast :D :D :D By the way, Ravens said all.


    saishuu, no they aren't. They're looking for a sponsor

  • Trento: Did they contract with Djuric and Matey Kazyski will play for new club in Japan ? I knew Nemec came back to Korea for this season. Sole stayed and about Zygado ??

  • As far as I know Kaziyski is going to J-Tekt Stings in Japan :wavy:

  • Trento: Did they contract with Djuric and Matey Kazyski will play for new club in Japan ? I knew Nemec came back to Korea for this season. Sole stayed and about Zygado ??

    Djuric and Sole stay and they already sign a new contract. Kazyski and Zygadlo left the team, just like Birarelli (the new MB is Van de Voorde). At the moment the OHs are Lanza and Antonov, but probably Trento will hire Urnaut.

  • How about the setter? Giannelli will be first choice or they will take someone new?

    Don't you worry, don't you worry child. See heaven's got a plan for you

  • How about the setter? Giannelli will be first choice or they will take someone new?


    Giannelli should be the starter next season, as back up it was rumored Georgi Bratoev, but nothing is certain yet about him..

  • Piacenza and Latina are out of the championship. They have 2 more days to fix the situation.


    Right now just 10 teams will play.


    Città di Castello and Potenza Picena gave up and will play in Serie A2.


    In Serie A2 Corigliano, Matera and Motta (promoted team) announced they won't play.

  • Djuric and Sole stay and they already sign a new contract. Kazyski and Zygadlo left the team, just like Birarelli (the new MB is Van de Voorde). At the moment the OHs are Lanza and Antonov, but probably Trento will hire Urnaut.


    Thks :D Ít seems be a new team :mad:

  • Do we have a decision now?

    At last, Piacenza signed up for 2015 Superlega. The new sponorship deal is with two local businessmen and it appears to be a good long-term solution. :win:
    Rumor has that the coach will be Giuliani and some of the players who were under contract will stay, Zlatanov first and foremost.

  • I'm glad to see both are staying in the league! :drink: Latina especially didn't deserve to go after the good season they just had.

  • In your opinion, which is the best starting 7 among the 5 top teams this year?
    (alphabetical order)


    Macerata:
    Christenson - Miljkovic
    Cebulj - Juantorena
    Podrascanin - Cester
    Grebennikov


    Modena:
    Bruno - Vettori
    Ngapeth - Petric
    Lucas - Piano
    Rossini


    Perugia:
    De Cecco - Atanasjevic
    Russell - Kaliberda
    Birarelli - Buti
    Giovi


    Trento:
    Giannelli - Djuric
    Lanza - Urnaut
    Solè - Van de Voorde
    Colaci


    Verona:
    Baranowicz - Starovic
    Sander - Kovacevic
    Anzani - Zingel
    Pesaresi



    p.s. Regarding Macerata, I remind you that Stankovic is going to play only in Champions League (or as a back-up of Podrascanin in Superlega)

  • A sum of the players' strengths in a vacuum? It's a tie.
    Add the third receiver-hitter (for real, edit the message and add them :D ) and other part-time starters and it separates the first three from the last two.
    Modena have the biggest discrepancy between their "best" and their "worse". Civitanova has the biggest question mark in a single starting position but he's just fine in the long run in Superlega. Perugia may be the weakest receiving team.

  • Russell is a good receiver.


    Third OHs are:

    Trento - Antonov and Mazzone
    Modena - Nikic
    Treia - Cebulj and Kovar (Parodi will be the second starter)
    Preugia - Kaliberda (Russell and From are supposed to be the starters)
    Verona - Lecat
