Brazil NT 2018

  • Taubate had no lucky in the past 2 seasons.... They signed Gavin Schmitt but he got injured before the season started, he arrived late and after 2 games he got injured again. ... This past season they signed Ivovic and he got injured.... He arrived on time ( I think) but was not 100% until the 2nd half of the season....


    That`s why they are being very careful with Lucarelli.


    Will Conte be at the WCH? I read that he has already joined Taubate as they already started the preparations for next season... I have never seen a player do that, join the club and then leave for the NT.....usually NT players won`t join the team until they are 100% done with the NT.

  • Things are not looking good for the Rio Olympics gold winner. SMH> They should have start playing with the younger team much earlier. Now that Lucarelli is out (perhaps), things are just getting worse for them.

  • Why is Lucarelli out, and for how long?

    He suffered an Achilles tendon rupture last November. No one knows exactly how long it'll be until he's fully back.

    I hate to be pessimistic (even though that's my brand lmao), but I don't think we can expect anything from Brazil this year.

  • Lucarelli's out for the world championship. It's final. He sided with Taubate and chose the superliga. I understand his position though. Taubate have to protect its investment and Lucarelli had to protect his contract and career. It'll be unfair for both sides if they get the worst deal if Lucarelli suffers another injury that can potentially worsen his condition.

    Any word on Joao? I know the guy have physical problems all over the place but he's the only player who can score at will and replace Lucarelli. Is he still injured? I wonder if RDS will consider him.


    This will probably be Brazil's final pos 4 lineup though: Douglas, Lipe, Rodriguinho and Lucas Loh.


    I'm not really confident with the players here. No one is consistent and no one among them is a definitive point getter. i wish Lipe just sacrifice his spot to give a young prospect experience. It's a high risk but Brazil can atleast expect more from preparedness from current young players in Tokyo 2020. :whistle:

  • I don't think anyone is confident Brazil can do anything this WCH lol they might reach F6, but the other teams are miles ahead given our pool of OHs. Kadu is training with the team as well, by the way, so there's a small chance he makes it there.


    Oh, and João wasn't even called for the VNL, so there's zero chances he'll make it to the WCH. Hell, he wasn't even called for the Pan American Cup. I don't think he's gonna be part of the NT anytime soon (if ever).
