CEV Champions League 2019

  • I don't think so. I think this is a transitional season with some young players and (almost) without foreigners.


    The main problem is consistency. Also Startseva's decisions are not great (I think Novik is doing better but has other weaknesses). I see Kotikova more as a defensive OH (obviously has to improve her reception) since her attacking skills are not that good.

    The MB's are good, no point in moving Malygina there. Also I think she does better this season than before but she will never be a good option for the NT...

    I think the team is good enough to make the final 4 in Russia and get the second place in their CL group. We will probably see further fluctuations in the performance because of the OH's which are lacking experience (Kotikova, Kadochkina), missing game practice (Pasynkova) or just not that good a receiver (Bavykina).

  • some mention absence of Hodge but they were playing without Hodge in the finals last season and they were almost beating Vakıfbank..could Conegliano be missing Bricio ?

    I don't think so. They have a terrible passer, even worse than Bricio. That's right. But the main problem is Hill: she's underperforming since the last summer with the USA Team, when she was benched very often. She's always been setting dependent and now she looks also getting worse physically.

  • Only problem for Conegliano is their reception. And they are not missing Bricio because She is bad reciver.


    They need good reciver. C. Bosetti would be perfect for them. Now they need to search good reciver, and that player doesn’t need to be great attacker.


    They have to many good players to fail. Now they need to be every match in CL pool stage.

    No, it is obviously not. During all those set-points in the 1.set their block as well as floor defence was below par. Schweriner´s attacker´s emerged as Gamova-like appearances in the light of the non-existent Conegliano-wall. They hardly blocked down the German team and looked honestly "amateurish" at times on the floor with very "trivial" errors. For a team that relies to such an extent on their defensive game, its a problem of vast proportions.

  • No, it is not.

    Yes it is, if you know anything about fast system game that Conegliano plays than you would know how much is that key of their game.


    No Bricio is not better attacker than Sylla, and they are both bad reciver.

  • Hey Crovolley, why haven’t you done your famous math so far? The one where you compare the quality of the leagues based on a match. After yesterday’s result, can we say German league is better than Seria A?


    Oh, and before I forget, can we say “quality of seria A is soooo low compare to last season”???

    Seria A is the strongest league in the world right now. Happy ? :)

    Or you need help with 1+1math, just ask?

    Their only problem isnt only their attack right now. Their serve isnt working as well as neither the block nor the defense. Of course Bricio would contribute with her serve, probably the best in the world, for example. They could not, through their serve, put any relevant pressure at all on Schweriner throughout the end of the 1.set and thus wasnt able to prevent them from attacking effectively while picking the desired options as finishers.

  • Robin is pretty known for being an all about spiking middle. She was inconsistent as blocker even under Guidetti.

    But she is doing way better than Danesi in block, who supposed to be a good blocker. But she is far from the level she showed at the WCH.

    that is not your famous math. According to your logic, champion of Seria was beaten by a German team so German league is better than Italian. This is what you always say hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah this is soooo hilarious ahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
