Italy- Superlega 2018/2019

  • Unrelated to the game, but is there any news on Ryley Barnes' injury? The one that made Lube cancel his contract.

  • I can't fully concentrate with the match because of the ongoing german football mess in Bavaria.:white:

    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

  • Lube's reception line is absolutely horrible.

  • Trento's bench seems incredibly weak this year too. I guess they spent all their money on Jenia, Russell and Lisinac. :gone:

    I wish they had kept Mazzone (Daniele) last year.

    Well, they have Nelli (better than many second opposite of the Superlega, probably better than all of them beside Simon) and Van Garderen which is at least decent. For setter and libero it's hard to find a top team with a truly decent subs, so only the MBs bench it's actually weak (but I read Codarin is good, anyway).


    this tournament is more like exhibition matches (of course it's not).

    Actually I agree :P That doesn't mean it's not good ^^


    Russell's contract was more expensive than Trento thought so an equivalent trade for Lanza didn't sit well with Sirci. Galassi was only the additional value that prompted the exchange.

    True, I forgot!


    Is it true that Juantorena left the NT?

    He said he'll definitely think about it, but it's not hard to believe for me.

    Edited once, last by Kk15: I wrote Van Garderen's name wrong ^^' ().

    Yeeeah, you're right. I don't know, I just feel like they could've gotten at least one bigger name for the bench, but it's understandable they didn't.

  • Super talented team can't finish any attack


    Juantorena can't jump anymore . I think after the game four of last years final series, his career was supposed to be finished.

    That was kind of a farewell.


    I also think they can't let Stankovic play full season .

  • this was a mess lol congrats to Modena! I'm curious to see Lube's development throughout the season.

  • Lube is going to become dangerous when Sokolov returns.


    Perugia... I'm not sure.

  • First two matches and first surprises! I think we should give more time to each team, WCH just ended.


    Interesting choice by Velasco, starting with Bednorz over Kaliberda. Is the german still injured?

  • I don't know if Kaliberda is still injured, anyway he was by far the worst all along the match.
