  • thanks.
    is this squad of Budowlani good/enough for Orlen Liga ?

    it is quite competitive indeed, Beier is still among top OHs here, Grajber is doing fine, they have one of the best MBs and Vincourova as playmaker, moreover Libero Maj was NT player, Grobelna has ups and downs but overall she's ok, IMHO they can find in TOP 3 at the end of the season ^^

  • probably Budowlani, Impel and Tauron are the strongest opponents ^^


    Developres has been doing quite promising recently as well, their team looks quite solid and they almost defeated Chemik 8o

  • Yes, Impel and Budowlani for me are similar teams, Impel with better attack and Budowlacni with better reception, but overall the level is close (even though Budowlani won easly). Both have weak points in OPP.


    Tauron is quite unpredictable. Both middles are good, strong OPP, but reception is unstable and they can play either very good or very bad (like with Agel Prostejov). Scott Hood is good so far, but second OH is problem, Paszek is weak attacker and Kalisuk weak passer.

  • Superb matches by Kakolewska, Mędrzyk, Grajber, Krzywicka, Smarzek and Śmieszek ;) Good for NT.


    And Horka is prabably better that ever! She is the biggest surprise of the league for me. 28 points against Budowlani only confirm that.

    You forgot about Damaske (MVP), Wójcik, Polańska and Bociek. :win: Kąkolewska is doing better and better, I'm also glad, that Smarzek's playing more and more and she become leader of the team.

  • OH Wiktoria Szumera played today for BKS Bielsko-Biała. I guess she will be on team's roster soon.


    I see more and more foreign players choose to play in polsih 1st league. So I've decided to make a list:
    Wisła Warszawa: Alena Laziuk (MB, BLR), Olena Novgrodchenko (S, UKR)
    Politechnika Opolska: Ksenia Sukhorukova (MB, BLR), Olga Lezenkina (S, UKR)
    Calisia Kalisz: Ivana Isailović (MB, SRB)
    AZS Gliwice: Mariam Gaprindashvili (MB, GEO), Ekaterina Shapoval (MB, BLR), Yulia Molodstova (OH, UKR)
    Nike Węgrów - Natali Flaviani ? (MB, ARG)


    I'm not sure about Flaviani. She played for Nike last year. And she is Samica's girlfriend so she has to play somewhere in Poland :D

  • I must admit that Nawrocki did good job last summer with Kąkolewska, Grajber, Smarzek and Twardowska. :thumbup: I hope it will pay off!
    Whenever Twardowska enters on the court she ends match with +50% in attack and Kąkolewska never played like this before. Smarzek has troubles with reception and she'll have, but at least in attack she can make up ^^

  • We got to the point where Kąkolewska played as good as Veljkovic :white: Who would think about that year or two ago :whistle:


    And Zaroślińska was in a trance today, hope she will play for NT :)
