Italy- Superlega 2018/2019

  • Do you mean his reception is as poor as Leon?

    He's a good receiver and he's good in attack.

    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

  • Two aces tattooed the baseline. That's too crazy to handle

    Can we make a rule against Leon to have blockers legal when he's serving? :lol:

  • Tillie’s spot on the national team will be questioned if he plays as a starter. Maybe the libero fits him best.

    That's a tough question to his father. His reception and defense turns out to be pivotal for Modena's the last two games. The situation of the French NT is different from Modena's: France doesn't have many good-quality OHs, and the offensive power of the spikers from both wings is not that strong. Difficult trade-off.

  • Leon's serve is just a heartbreaker.:obey:

  • Trentino is probably celebrating right now.


    Modena is less than minutes away from being knocked out of the scudetto race and CL qualification.

  • CL spots confirmed for Perugia, Lube and Trentino.

    Both Clevenot and Rossard are better than Tillie. Even Lyneel is better than him. So what do u expect?

  • What a pity for Modena. There're so many turning points of this series. Velasco may have underestimated Hoag's serves that he thought Hoag couldn't produce high-quality serves consecutively. If he adjusted the reception lineup (adding in Zaytsev) or took Bednorz out earlier, Bednorz wouldn't get injured and Modena could have closed set 2 and very likely the game.

    As I have said before, Velasco is very prone to underestimating his opponents even for Argentina's NT.

  • Both Clevenot and Rossard are better than Tillie. Even Lyneel is better than him. So what do u expect?

    What I can say is that these three and Kevin Tillie are all very close in terms of their calibre. If they're really better than Kevin Tillie, there wouldn't be so many rotations among them to play as N'gapeth's opposite the last year. I've watched Clevenot's games a few times this season. He hasn't been that impressive.

  • Tillie did a great job for me,smart and complete player. Bednorz's injury screwed things up ;(. I'm still glad of these good performances from Modena, after the first game I thought they would have lost easily but they didn't.


    I'm surprised of Anzani,he had a great season in Perugia but he didn't show the same in Modena

  • Remembered Modena had a huge lead at 18:9 in game 3, and Pergugia made an unbelievable comeback. Today, Modena made another big mistake. They led at 23:17 in the 2nd set, but could not take the set. Actually Urnaut played great after BB was out for injury. Holt, Mazzone and Micah all played well. Zaytsev played solid in this series, much better than his season average, except he missed two key spikes in game 3 and game 5.


    Today Leon's serves in set 4 and set 5 saved Perugia. Colaci is a loophole in this semi. He played like an amateur most of the time with horrible reception. Blocking is always an issue for Perugia. From CL semi to Italy semi, they simply don't know how to block. In all top 4 teams in Italy league, DeCecco is the worst one. He set up many balls not comfortable to spike. If he could not perform normally, Perugia will have a big trouble in the final.

  • I had very good feeling for Modena in the beginning, then all the good vibes started coming from Sir Safety. Vibes never lie.

    stop lmao
