  • Why did Kelsey quit?


    translation from Chinese sounds a little bit weird :whistle: maybe they just collided and Kelsey has a minor injury


    Yes, she has a minor injury.

  • Notes:
    1 The coaching level of Kiattipong is doubted. Doesn't he know Zeng Chun-lei could be a OH as the substitute of Liu Xiao-tong? The good spike of Karsta Lowe is wasted. Of course, I hope Robinson returns in the next match.
    2 Team Bayi tells all of the audience around the world why Li Jing is a system player. Are the MBs of strong teams much weaker than Yuan Xin-yue and Yang Jun-jing?
    3 Chen Li-yi, Zhang Xiao-ting and Li Ying (all from Team Tianjin) participated in the entrance exams for postgraduate schools, so they didn't play in this round. They didn't arrive in Shanghai.
    4 Yang Han-yu (MB), Mei Xiao-han (S) and Song Li-qi (OH), all from Team Shandong, got the chance of taking part in the first match of Chinese League A.
    5 Poor Megan Easy! Kelly Murphy became one of the worst foreign players until now.


    Plus them after No.3: Li Ying-ying born in 2000 became the first main player born after 2000 in Chinese League.
    Ranking until Round 13:
    Top 8:
    1 Zhejiang 8-1
    2 Tianjin 7-2
    3 Jiangsu 6-3
    4 Sichuan 4-5
    5 Liaoning 3-6 [10]
    6 Bayi 3-6 [9]
    7 Beijing 3-6 [8]
    8 Shanghai 2-7
    Last 4:
    1 Fujian 4-1 [13]
    2 Shandong 4-1 [9]
    3 Henan 1-4 [4] C:0.66 Z:0.98
    4 Yunnan 1-4 [4] C:0.46 Z:0.84


    Team Henan and Team Yunnan will join in Challenge League (former League B).

  • Tomen, could you tell me how does relegation work?


    There is no more Volleyball League B, right? No more challenge match? Last 2 teams go straight to the second division, right?

    No more Volleyball League B - Yes
    No more challenge match - No
    Last 2 teams will join in the Challenge League with three other teams - Hubei, Hebei and Guangdong (sponsored by Evergrande, Fe Garay and Julian Faucette joined it in this season) in 2017.
    Team Guangdong Evergrande is in Slovenia now in order to play some warm-up matches.
    Before this season, Jiangsu went to Germany (Zhao Jing-xue wore the shirt of Wanna Buakaew and played as the libero of Allianz MTV Stuttgart) and Fujian also went abroad.


    EDIT:
    Top 2 of Challenge League 2017 will join League 17/18.
    Others will join Challenge League 2018.

  • Thank you, Tomen.


    This is very intresting. There are direct relegations and promotions now.


    I found Team Henan situation very sad. They hired probably the best foreign player who ever played in China (Hodge), but Murphy keeps playing ad bad as the last 2 seasons and they are relegated now.


    Probably nothing would change with Zhu Ting in the team instead of the USA players. As far as I remember Zhu Ting gets very often tired along the season, while Hodge is athletically stronger and on high level the whole time.


    I wonder if Murphy will keep playing. And who would hire a player with such a terrible shape. She has no more confidence since Kiraly used her just to make number in the USA NT. ;(

  • After Round 14 ("reasons" in brackets):
    Zheng Yi-xin (MB/OP): Fujian --> Beijing (Cao Ting-ting: Beijing --> Shandong Junior)
    Wang Meng-jie (L): Shandong --> Sichuan (Wang Si-min: Sichuan --> Beijing Junior)
    Mi Yang (S): Fujian --> Yunnan (Bai Rui-qi retired and Che Rui is too young)
    PS:
    In February, the preliminary contest of the junior (U21) event of Chinese National Games 2017 will be held.
    Some players had to say goodbye to Chinese League A Season 16/17 ahead of time in order to get ready for it.

    The link is Challenge League 2016.
    Top 2 (No.1 Shandong and No.2 Henan) kept the qualification of League 16/17.
    In theory, three teams at least will take part in Challenge League 2017 - Henan, Yunnan, Guangdong.


    Tomen can you give us the link? Thanks

  • I didn't understand Tomen.
    1) You said that there is no more League B. And what is there instead of League B, no League? (So for example Guandong didn't play in a championship and played only friendly matches)?
    2) What is "Challenge League"? Another name to call the Challenge match (where 2 last teams of League A will play against Guandong, Hebei and Hubei)?


    Thank you so much :win:

    It's so simple.
    If you felt my every words were full of Chinglish or "false English", I still had to explain it with my style.
    Teams: Henan, Yunnan, Guangdong, (Hubei), (Hebei) - the teams in brackets uncertainly will take part in it.
    Format: single round robin
    Place: one certain place instead of home and away
    Top 2 will join in League 2018.
    Do you understand?

    Could you gently answer to my two questions (expecially the first one, that is if there is a League B or not)?
