2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

  • Zehra Güneş is really new rising star in volleyball. Her stats when it comes to attack and blok are already very good. You can't even compare Lubian with her and they are the same age.
    She has already won Champions League and Turkish league and is choosen the best MB.
    I am so happy that we will watch her against the best teams of VNL.

  • leonardo, i haven't seen rivera lately no, but i meant she was a stablizing force for receiving serve... which is their weak part.


    eve as OH is not good enough, and i guess kwiek could try moving pena to receiving OH and using rodriguez or gonzalez as attacking OPP, but that is still not good enough.


    i do like fernandez but kwiek has been trying her as digging libero and binet as passing libero, but i think binet is not that good at it...


    I agree. They are missing an OH who can pass. They desesperately do need one. They have so many great attackers, but the backrow is their weakest link. It is quite funny because Marcos has tried almost every single player as OH, even Vargas :cheesy: , but nobody was able to do it in a decent way.


    Pena is another liabilty in the backrow. Maybe they should try an ex libero as OH in order to help the with the pass. Otherwise, they will keep this losing record.


    Btw...how annoying are the screams from the turkish side? I understand that you need to celebrate and so on, but omg...it is almost unbeareable. I had to turn off the sound of the match

  • I agree that Zehra is really a great prospect as MB, but she needs to improve her variety in attack :!: In this tournament I only see her hitting the 2-meter-shot, never a quick hit closer to the setter or a slide attack. Better blockers will eat her alive (though there are not so many around in world volleyball these days)

  • Congrats girls, we are going finals after 4 years :cheesy:


    I think Zehra is a little bit overrated.She is a good attacker but her blocking skills are very bad :teach:


    Cansu is like new Yuan :lol:


    Though I agree she might seem bad next to Eda Erdem her blocking skills are nowhere near ''very bad''. Also her attack is and her athleticism is on par with some World class mbs and better then some as well although she could use some variety indeed. I think she will never be a slider, more like Rasic, Veljkovic, Thaisa kind of player to me. At age 18 I don't think she is overrated at all, what else can we expect from her other then scoring tons of points above 60-70% sometimes 80-90% each match.



    Cansu Ozbay is indeed crazy screamer lol she can tone it down a little :lol:

  • Congrats to Turkish girls and Guidetti for making it to the final round.. they have deserved to go to the final round after playing a good first round. what i like in this new format is that all the teams play one another so nobody can claim that the pools were unbalanced or that team had deserved more bla bla..
    i couldnt watch the match vs Germany ..there was no working stream around to watch
    i checked the stats..all the players seem to have done well offensively except Meliha..its not wrong to say Guidetti considers Meliha as a regular starter so Meliha should do better at attacking she should keep improving on different part of her attacking game .


    Zehra Güneş has been doing well. She should keep working hard..i disagree on that she is a bad blocker..she is not..she is the 7th best blocker of VNL so far. sure there's always a room for improving


    i found German Drewniok a promising player.Unfortunately she is an OPP and Lippmann's backup at the best..one of these girsl should pass to be on the courth at the same time..or two-man passing system should be applied


    btw..many troll-ish posters have appeared in the forum recently.. their posts are disrespectful and partly discriminatory towards some players ..i think we should simply ignore them .when they realize nobody feeds them then either they will start to write on "volleyball" or will disappear ;)

    Made my day. Where are the croatian rising stars? :lol:

  • I really don't like Ebrar.Her technique is bad.She plays with high-slow balls.That's why she is not effective with these fast sets right now.


    I am waiting for Derya Cebecioğlu.I don't know why Guidetti didn't call her.She is a huge talent.I can say she can be a great all-around OH :thumbup:

    you could be right about Ebrar but give her a few years..she is just "raw" atm

  • Wilhite seems soo scared coming in... every ball she attacked looked like a mishit, and the reception was pretty bad too.. I hope she feels more relaxed, If she starts the 3rd seg

    It was just the same in Busto this past season,everytime Mencarelli gave her a chance,she looked scared to me too

  • First and last warn, or I will close the topic. Stop being rude on each others NOW. I don't care a bit who deserved more to be in F6. You have to stay in topic and act nicely to each others, without this stupid fights based on your personal opinions. I'm tired of doing the police man in every single topic. Stop it now.

  • I don't know who is right or not but I can only say beri is the user who like jumping every single topic and always get the subject wrong and try to make things chaos and mess up with me several times and character of beri is B word, like making ppl nervous with nonsense. Well, about deserve or not it is really ridiculous Turkey and Netherlands both seem not bad, they are stable, they get evey point with huge efforts. Okay, we know Russia, Italy, China, Serbia and other teams didn't play mostly with main team, but it doesn't mean Netherlands and Turkey don't deserve it. I think they both deserve it and that's why they are gonna play F6. Well, I don't like GUI but it doesn't mean his team doesn't deserve to play F6. I like being honest, Turkey played stable more than other teams if to compare, at least they lost games in tie break, they fought in every game. Turkey teams are good indeed IMO. I wish good luck all teams in F6.
