2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

  • Gradačac


    Yes indeed she is Turkish-Bosnian from Gradačac, there are also many Turkish-Balkan people in Romania, Macedonia, Greece, Serbia etc. but not in Turkish NT (yet) there is a few more in Turkish league tho

  • What do you guys have problem that Meliha is Bosnian player who decided to play for Turkey ?? What is wrong with that ?


    She is Born in BIH, She played for her home town club before She came to Turkey, and She played for youth and junior NT of BIH. She has double citizehship and She can play for Turkey or BIH if She wants to. Same for Boskovic and Mihaljevic.


    Do you see this guys ? I just point that Meliha is from BIH and Turkish fans are getting crazy. That is fact, chill guys :lol: :lol:

  • I just said she has a name and explained what her background really is, how is that starting problems lol I just gave extra information on her as Spyro was also curious.`


    crovolley you seem to care more that she is Bosnian as you mention it twice now in 10 mins...


    You say she is Bosnian and then next time call her 'That bosnian girl' on the other page to make it clear for people who did not see it :rolll: clear what your intentions are but Iosta said the truth here.
    I don't mind her being Turkish-Bosnian which is why I never brought it up really apart from once a few years ago, you mention it twice in 10 minutes so clearly it matters to you

  • So, Turkey has beaten Euro champs Serbia , Mighty Brazil and lost to World champs USA in the finals in a close one. In the most valuable tournament after the major ones and the continentals, that is mighty good form for the up coming WCH's. The point here is being able to compete with these top teams, i don't really care about the wins per se, we have proved we can compete and beat the top, that is such a great platform to build on.
    With so much room to improve and several high quality players we need to see yet in the NT set up, i don't know about anyone else but i have never been this high and positive for many years with the NT.

  • omg why am I even responding to this, also my fault here. I will try to ignore users from now on really, Im an easy target lol as I respond to everthing :gone:

  • Btw Li Ying Ying? Did anyone else expect so much more from her this tour? waiting for Wch now. I think she should be Opp not OH

  • Calm down guys,it's nothing serious :win: Naturalizations are part of sport. In the past Italy had also great naturalized players as Aguero and Costagrande :D


  • What game have you watched to say that Italy MBs are not delivering good performance ? Why do you underperform Christina performance and Danesi too ? Who are doing pretty much good job ? OH is not just attack, Bosetti is second libero next to De Gennaro that is why they have the best defence team right now and secondly Pietrini is the biggest talent in volleyball right now and her performance was going up game by game I still think that Sylla deserves to be start with her amazing performance in week 5 after she got little injury.



    Last 6matches Italy won at VNL (China,Brazil, Serbia) so they are pretty good with their confidence.

    Well I watched most of their VNL matches and I don't think Italian fans are thrilled by their middles either. When your opponents have MBs like Akinradewo, Dixon and Adams and you have Chrichella and Danessi, that is unfortunately far from being enough.


    You are right about Bosetti, she is simply a second libero which makes other teams' job easier to read what Italy will do in front row when she is there.


    Pietrini is young, as young as Zehra and Ebrar and I am sure she will become a better player in the future but as I pointed out, her receiving won't improve in 3 months and she is clearly a target by most well serving teams.


    I agree on Sylla but she is not consistent enough for this level either. She reminds me of a young Plak, she sure is more dynamic than Plak but her receiving and attacking is like ticking bomb unfortunately :white:

  • Wow how quickly this thread turned. It was a great tournament watching Turkey play. So impressed with their defense; blocking and everyone going after digs. Just a few bad plays and they lost. They beat really good team during the tournament. I’m not sure if their A team players could have done any better. I would have liked to have seen their libero get the award how amazing is she.


    Happy that USA won...they did look discombobulated a lot of the time and not as strong as in the past but several different players playing different positions. Kelly did a decent job at libero and we really don’t have anyone else. And I don’t see her playing that role when she goes back to Turkey to play which will hurt our future. I don’t think JWO has a professional contract this coming year so she is not a good option. People think Lowe is the answer to the OPP. She was only a decent player. A lot will change in the next couple of years.

    I'm really tired of this conversation. Every fu*king given day the same topic. You want your trash talk? Go to your trash can tread topic. There's no reason to keep it open if you keep talking about whatever you want here, being off topic most of the time.

  • I can understand why turkish fans are so exciting about their team. It is the best result that their senior team get till now. Here is the record of wgp from 2014-2017.


    2014: Brazil, Japan, Russia
    2015: USA,Russia,Brail
    2016: Braizl ,USA, Netherlands
    2017: Brazil, Italy,Seriba

    Thank you :white: I am really sick of these two users. Crovolley defending every thing from Italy and beri as the same for Turkey. You are not the presidents of these countries and dont have to defend every negative posts coming from other users. :white:

  • Kadir, I agree but you are ignoring the fact that one or two here are blatant wind up merchants, their posts are there straight up to provoke and get a reaction.
    I don't care though i have learned to ignore over the years, It is far far worse in Basketball or football forums.


    Also if you notice Turkish posters respond with substance in their posts, not lame insults or veiled provocations.


    But I am biased and not a regular poster, just my 2 cents worth as they say, and won't comment further.

  • I don't know how I exact;y come of as and even though I still see clear provocations its up to us to not respond to them as that only feeds trolls.


    I apologize to everyone on my own behalf for my immature behavior also I respond negatively a lot to normal users lately bcs of this atmosphere which I apologize even more for! :( I'm truly sorry, I will try a different approach from now on.

    Don't be sad. Just relax and try a better approach. :win:


    And yes, ignore the provocations. Thanks you. ;)

    They are clearly trying to provocate ,perhaps their hate is because of political and cultural reasons . So nothing you write will change their opinion ;)
