Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

  • those that don't know enright need to go watch some of PUR NT"s matches, like at the last panamerican games. PUR took BRA to 5 sets twice, in large part due to enright and ocasio. and she's not a tall girl, she's about 177 cm tall.

  • The most bizarre thing so far this season must be the fact Haak not only is the best blocker and the best server among all OH/OPPs in the league, but also is the only one among the top-30 scorers who has not been blocked one single time so far combined with only eight errors in four matches (Egonu has 23 errors for ex). Just compare with Egonu, they have both scored over 20 pts per game, but while Egonu has been either blocked down or made an error 31 times Haak has only eight to account for in the same aspects. Sanja Malagurski has been blocked down 24 times in comparision; Barun 14, Ortolani 11, Tomsia 11, van Hecke 10, Pavan 9, Egonu 8 etc. I do not know how many players there are capable of producing these kind of numbers and effictivity like 20 pts+ per game with 45% attempts-points ratio while still being able to cut down the mistakes to such an extent.

  • Carlini will ride the success of Haak and that's not a bad thing. She still needs to fix her connection with Arighetti though. Everything else seems to work fine especially with the open hitters.

  • Pomi is bad because Rondon is bad. She is not using MB right look at their stats. Jovana had better stats even with young Klara Peric. They need Lo Bianco. I don't why they signed that bad setter from Canada -.-

    No team ever is bad because one player is bad. The construction as a whole simply doesn't work out (yet?).

  • Rondon didn't even play today!


    But it's clear they need a better setter than Cyr. Although, having someone of Lo Bianco's age (no matter how good she is) as the main setter was always going to be a risky strategy.


    Guerra is a big disappointment so far, this was her chance to impose herself in the abscence of Martinez (and Zeng Chunlei) and she hasn't used it at all in these matches. I expected more from her.

  • This is pathetic. It's already the middle of November.


    What do you say? We have World League and World Grand Prix and all the FIVB tournaments are amazing. Continental championships are the useless ones. olololo

    I'm really pleased by the elimination. Italy has to wake up and realize volleyball is the most successful sport in this country and it deserves more. I'm talking about sponsors, better TV covering, more intrest from the media. I don't care a bit about the football NT, same as the 2 volleyball NTs, but the men's volleyball league deserves way more than a ridiculus Serie A, which is the mirror of this awful NT result. Same for the women's league, even if it's still low level and the shadow of itself.
