  • Is this a B team or A team ? I'm asking because I see some familiar names here.


    btw your U20 team lost to Iraq ?!??!!! how come

  • Is this a B team or A team ? I'm asking because I see some familiar names here.


    btw your U20 team lost to Iraq ?!??!!! how come

    It's B team but older than A team.

    The style is like Iran B team in 2016 AVC Cup.

    Why did U20 lose to Iraq?

    These are both excuses:

    1. without many much stronger players: Zhang Jing-yin (OH, in senior Team A), Peng Shi-kun (MB, in senior Team B), Wang Dong-chen (MB), Xiu Cheng-cheng (OP) and so on - specially without Xiu Cheng-cheng - Qu Zong-shuai as Bayi's player could arrive in Bahrain. Why couldn't Xiu?

    2. China U20 underestimated the opposite team though in 2017, Beijing VC without Jiang Chuan, Zhang Bing-long. and Liu Li-Bin has lost to Iraq's VC.

  • Because of lack of players, Shanghai VC and Beijing VC both refused to participate in 2018 Asian Men's Club Volleyball Championship.

    Sichuan VC will participate in it.

    The roster will be:

    S - Yang Guang, Jiang Zhi-yuan

    OP - Cao Yi-ming, Zhang Jin-cheng, Liu Yi-chao, Bi Xian-hao

    OH - Li Rui (OH born in 1997), Guo Shun-xiang, Zhou Tong

    Plus: Jiang Zhi-yuan is too tired because he will go from South Africa to China due to BRIC Games 2018. Therefore, 4 OPs and 1 setter went to Myanmar. Oh, my god.

  • After U18 got the sixth, U20 got the fifth, Sichuan got the place below the eighth and not going to Taiwan for 2018 AVC Cup, I only hope Team A who will particapate in 2018 WCH and Team B who will do in 2018 Asian Games can both got the better result.

  • I am really surprised that China sends its team B to this quadrennial event, the Asian Games, and reserves the team A for WCH. It's unlike it has chance to win a medal in WCH. Now the team B even lost to VIE, I doubt this team is able to get a medal of any color. It may even not play in the last four. It's an unwise decision to sacrifice the Asian Games. Why the men's team did not learn from the women's team to send its strongest to the Asian Games??? Mediocrity has its own dumbness!

    The reason is world ranking for qualifier of OG!

    And China and Japan don't both "like" Iran's "style", who participates in not only Asian Games and WCH.

    Time conflict:

    2018 Asian Games: Aug.18 - Sep.2

    2018 men's WCH: Sep.9 - Sep.30

  • I have to agree with Tomen. Japan is already qualified as host for the olympics while Iran and Australia are ahead in world rankings which will probably qualify them for the first world olympic qualification tournament(the one rumoured to replace the World Cup) if China makes a fool of themselves in the world championship or Australia miraculously makes it to the final round even if China can have a great run.


    The only way they can realistically make the WOQT is for an asian+oceania nation to host it and I don't think Iran and Australia will have the privileges for different reasons. Maybe China might bid for it but I can see either USA(current world cup champions) or one of Europe taking the hosting rights.

    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

  • After winning Thailand (12–25, 17–25, 31–29, 25–23, 17–15) and Sri Lanka (25-15, 20-25, 25-14, 25-17), China will meet Iran in the quarterfinal of 2018 Asian Games.

    Have a good luck and hope to create a miracle.

    Shen Qiong is still lacking in the experience.

    Without foreigners, older but not better local players and young players without a better circumstance of earning money through volleyball "finished" these matches like the weakest Chinese men's NT in the history.

    I did not even bother to watch a single match of this trashy, miserable Chinese team amidst the hectic fortnight period of this fanfare and greatly entertaining Asian largest multisport gathering, held every four years... at least 11,000 athletes (exclude officials and other members) from around 45 NOC (if my memory is faithful) within the largest continent were competing from 18 August till 02 September 2018.


    I do wonder whether the European Continent has such multisport event of this scale.


    Vaguely I recall the African and American Continents may possibly have such equivalent competition though much smaller in scale...


    The ASIAN GAMES is the largest continental multisport event. I think it's the largest sport event in the world in term of the number of total participants, second only to the Summer Olympics.

  • I doubt whether there is internal conflict before WCH 2018.

    if lacks of much basic volleyball skill and knowledge are all true, why did Chinese men's NT play much better than now?

    Whose fault?

    “too strong” women's volleyball? no money to earn through playing men's volleyball? defense? discipline? Raul Lozano not speaking English? assistant coaches are all foolish? players are all foolish except Jiang Chuan, Chen Long-hai and Zhang Bing-long? without Liu Meng or Zhan Guo-jun? no giving chance to Ma Xiao-teng?


    They are all excuses.


    At last, please tell me, "Is the runner-up of 2013 U19 WCH false?" "Is the 3rd place of 2015 U21 WCH false?" I don't believe it!
