Turkey- VVSL-Vestel Venus Women's League 2017/2018

  • Guidetti made a big mistake taking Sloetjes out, especially when they are leading and Zhu is receiving just fine. When you take Sloetjes out everyone knows where the ball is going ( Zhu) at least with Sloetjes there you have to guess.


    And this affects Sloetjes confidence as well, getting taking out in clutch time.

    It wasn't that bad.


    Just bad decoy play on Akman. She tried going for the slide but the reception drifted to the far right which made the slide attack not a viable option. Akman should've went for the quick play decoy.

    Favorite players: M: Maxim Mikhaylov, Murilo, Serginho, Aaron Russell, Otavio, Simone Giannelli, Ivan Zaytsev, Tsvetan Sokolov, Michał Kubiak, Mariusz Wlazly, Pawel Zagummy W: Sheilla, Zhu Ting, Natalia, Fe Garay, Fofao, Gabi, Thaisa, Foluke Akinradewo, Wei Qiuyue, Ding Xia, Carli Lloyd, Fabi, Natalia Goncharova, Yuko Sano, Saoris Kimura and Sakoda

  • Another all about service match.


    Both teams are kept alive by their setters. Maja is simply outstanding so far. Passing is just terrible. Larson is playing a very bad game, same for Lonneke. Zhu Ting can't cover 1m of court when it comes to pass. I like this new girl called Beyza, she has funny moves. :D

  • Naz, Zhu, Lonneke, Kubra and Orge benched. Robinson is warming up, she just had 3 diggs in the same rally and a kill.


    Larson woke up and joined the party. Eczacibasi looks in total control.

    Zhuting's receiving is ok today. The problem is the spike succesful rate is too low. Ecz vitra's blocking is very good today. They deserves to win this match. This season will be a tough job for vakifbank. They have to fight italy clubs and fight local strong clubs at the same time. :teach:

    Zhu just came back for Robinson and Guidetti changed the passing line from 3 to 2 people: Eczacibasi had 2 ace in a row. The big problem for Vakifbank are the NT players: all of them look tired and out of shape, bacause of long, stupid and useless FIVB tournaments the continental championships were played very late.


    This third set is a volleyball lesson.

  • 25:9 :what:


    I wouldn't want to be in the place of Vakifbank's players in the next training session. Guidetti is going to be unforgiving :D

    well. Guddetti makes the third set a training game for all bench players. I think only he has the guts to do that(he is both turkey NT coach and Club coach).

    I am sorry but no single starting player deserved to be at court instead of the bench players. Not Zhu, not Rasic, Not Naz and not Gözde or Kübra or Gizem. Imo he should have made the changes even earlier. Tuğba for Gözde, Zehra for Kübra, Kelsey for Zhu and Ayca for Gizem. Instead he chose to not do this and replace Zehra for Kübra for only 2 minutes while Zehra was doing already much better.

  • Zehra should have been started. She is already better than Kubra.
    Robinson came in and didnt bring any better reception nor attack. Huge loss since Kim Hill is so much better than her and again Naz is a real problem of the team, she is even worse than Pankova.
    It was just not their day, but more importantly they need to step up their game soon.
