Italy - Serie A1 2016/17

  • That would be the best option for sure, but then one of Skorupa/Fawcett/De Kriujf will have to get benched


    I hadn't realized the foreign limit problem, but actually I was taking for granted that Ortolani will play as OPP if Robinson and Bricio are in.
    Also Malinov/Skoroupa can be an option, but generally I would use it as plan B is Ortolani has problems.

  • After We talked about Bauer now She was second the best scorer with 20 points and 60% in attack even it was against Club Italia. Good job.

  • It doesn't change anything, but Bauer made 16 points not 20 :D

  • It doesn't change anything, but Bauer made 16 points not 20 :D

    Oh, Duke wrote that he scored 20 points, but ok :)

  • Montichiari must be the most unlucky team i have ever seen in my life how many times they lost 3-1 and yet that had the quality to go to fifth set easy but due to their mistakes they payed the price and dont get my started on all the 3-2 games that they lost ,modena on other hand is in a very dissapointing spot i actually belived they would be top 3 and maybe even fight for the titel

  • Yes, Montichiari pisses me off sometimes... They lost for Novara 3-2 but they had the match point to win ( I`m not sure if was 3-0 or 3-1) but Gioli did spike the ball out.
    They lost for Busto in the first round 3-0, but 2 sets were 26-24, and they could have won both sets.
    Against Pomi they had 2-1, but then just collapsed and lost 3-2.
    And there were a few other times when they had a comfortable lead in the set but end up loosing it.


    But Malarguski has been fantastic.

  • omg Modena is just embarassing right now, hope they can get some momentum now :hit:

  • After We talked about Bauer now She was second the best scorer with 20 points and 60% in attack even it was against Club Italia. Good job.

    And here she goes again, this time against Firenze, Bolzano won 3-2, but Bauer with 17% in attack (2/15). At least she got 2 blocks and 1 ace to make it 5 points. :thumbdown:

  • Where's crovolley to talk about Fabris' performance today? :whistle:

    Gold - European Championship 2013 (M) Prediction Game
    Bronze - World Championship 2014 (W) Prediction Game

    Bronze - Volleyball Nations League 2019 (W) Prediction Game

  • WTF ???
    I didn't they are playing match today :cursing:


    So what if She was bad, first time this year. It seems that it is problem when you are fan of someone here, but ok I don't give a f*ck :) People talk about me so that is god LOL hahaha


    Finally Tirozzi and Bosetti have scored more points, happy for them.
    But I still think they should transfer foreign OH and local MB... This is not the same Pomi with fast game like in last season so they don't need to Gibbemeyer..
    Yeah Bauer played bad today again, but I didn't watch it today. I don't know if she is playing bad or she just have bad con. with setter ???

  • Because I pointed it out that Bauer has been terrible this season, I need to to point it out that today she scored 15 points. But it was not enough and Montichiari won.


    And whatever is wrong with Mina Popovic is that bad she can`t play? I feel like she missed almost 50% of the season. This is not good for a young player.

    Egonu keeps impressing me. They lost today but it was 25/23 25/22 25/11 and Egonu with 22 points. And this is because she`s playing for the weakest team vs the strongest. I cant imagine what she will do when she`s playing for Conegliano next season ( if the rumors are true).


    And now I understand why Conegliano had to get ride of Tomsia, today she scored 2 points. :thumbdown: . Hopefully she can bounce back.


    And before I forget... there`s still the Copa Italia semis and final on March 4 and 5. This is insane crazy, all the leagues around the world are getting ready for the playoffs, but the women in Italy are so far behind. :thumbdown:

    This is bella Italia: not the country for the early birds :) . Remember, all days but Sunday nearly all matches begin at 20:30 local time, among the latest in whole Europo, the season begins often only in midth or end of October as one of the latest and lasts consequently until the deadline of European cup participation decisions directed to the CEV.

  • Remember, all days but Sunday nearly all matches begin at 20:30 local time, among the latest in whole Europo


    That has nothing do to with volleyball itself, imho. Italian habits settle the beginning of the evening around this time (or even 21). The theatre shows for example starts at similar times, the evening television programs not before 21, the evening soccer matches at 20.45 etc.


    On Sunday people are more available/willing to go out during the afternoon than during the evening, that's why the matches are earlier.
