2018 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

  • Muserkiy never misses a single ball in attack, but he hasn't been blocking much this weekend, has he?


    Physical problems along with Bakun.


    It's understandable, he's been the titular since the first week of VNL.

  • He has a problem with his eyes. He needs to undergo some kind of medical procedure. He cannot play for 6 weeks. He needs to do it now if he wants to be ready for the WCH. So it is not really about getting rest.

    Thank you. It's quite a sad news. I believe Poland be stronger with him, especially his great performaces at home last 2 weeks.

  • Now that we're talking about titular... i'm not sure who's really the titular of the opposite position of Serbia. :gone:

  • Always feels bad to lose like that, :S the match was totally winnable for Iran. they had their chances , if only someone could stop Muserskiy once or twice per set. he was the big big difference between two teams.


    having both Ghaemi and Ebadipour at the same time weakens the offense for Iran and Ghafour is not good enough to make up for that. I wonder if Manavinejad can solve this against better teams.

  • I was wrong - Mika is healthy - he is in polish roaster for the tournament in USA. Here is full list:
    S: Drzyzga, Łomacz
    OP: Schulz, Kurek, Muzaj
    OH: Kwolek, Szalpuk, Bednorz, Mika
    MB: Bieniek, Lemański, Kochanowski
    L: Piechocki, Żurek

  • Kovacevic is still not improving. Trento air was that bad he turned this bad? :gone:

  • Brizard-Patry was effective. I think the change disrupted Serbia.

  • Serbia really needs to use the fourth week to test a new outside hitter. They should leave out Kovacevic I'm still mad at Grbic for taking so many opposites in his roster when he have Luburic and Atanasinevic. :gone:

  • Even Atanasijevic can't do nothing. Luburic is back but it's probably too late for a come back.

  • Serbia's coach is the worst... :aww:


    He simply has no other alternative He's third best OH(probably 2nd right now) is out for the VNL.


    Where's Petric? Did he retire from the NT or is he /injured/resting for the WCH?


    Kaziyski said he's being rested/recovering from injuries after his season in Turkey for the WCH.
