    i may not be the tallest,
    the fastest, or the strongest,
    but at least i can do one thing better than anyone else,
    to be me...

  • From what I heard, the Netherlands will play with the main squad, except for de Kruijf. I also think Plak will not be there.

  • The language most users using here is pretty annoying and simply targeting to degrade other NTs, nothing else.


    Talking about the European teams and their chances to qualify for OGs:


    Serbia: For me they have almost a guaranteed place because they have almost the same line up and players like Maja, Boskovic and their MBs are in really good shape. The only question mark is Mihajlovic, whether she will be as useful as before in attacking.


    Italy: I like how Italy plays, simply with very few defects. De Gennaro add so much to this team. What I dont like with the new Italian NT is them relying so much on Egonu to score. Things can go upside down if Egonu has an injury, I hope Mazzanti has a B plan in his pocket, relying more on middles or something else.


    Russia: A big question mark right now. We know that starting players will be Parubets-Voronkova-Goncharova, the question is how will they perform this summer since we did not watch them playing together for a while.


    Netherlands: They have the same team for the last couple of summers which is not a bad thing but this VNL actually showed that they still have troubles to develop solid bench players. Daalderop is probably the only good addition. Who will play in opposite of Robin as MB and will her performance be enough? Who can replace Dijkema if she struggles on court? The receiving might fall apart and Plak/Buijs/Daalderop trio might not have bigger problems.


    Turkey: A new team with a new approach, relying on good receiving. We don't know how they will perform in important tournaments yet since last WCH was an early exam for them. However, the team does not depend on one single player for scoring. The weakness is still the opposite position, expecting Ebrar to be ready for carrying that position in major tournaments. I believe the main problem of this team will be killing the ball against strong opponents in big tournaments.


    In conclusion, there are many questions marks associated with these teams before the major tournaments and we don't know how their recent performances will be. Also we don't know how these teams will play against each other, how they prepare strategically etc. So please stop degrading each other, especially before we watch all these teams with their usual line-ups.

  • Russia is improving everyday. Korea is weakening everyday.. I do not think russia has any problem to enter olympics.

    4-5 of Korea's main NT players are injured. Right now they are playing with like a B-C team + Kim. When/If those players return they can be competitive again

  • 4-5 of Korea's main NT players are injured. Right now they are playing with like a B-C team + Kim. When/If those players return they can be competitive again

    I know korea's B-C team + Kim play in VNL. I am talking about the A team of Russia and Korea. Russia beats korea in 2016 olympics(3:1) and 2018 world championship(3:0). Moreover, I think russia is really improving a lot every year. These two teams are just not on the same level.:teach:


    The only hope for korea is to beat thailand if they want to play in olympics~~~:lol:

  • Russia 14 players arrived in Perugia


    Setters (3): Startseva (Captain), Romanova, Matveeva

    Opposites (2): Kotikova, Khaletskaia

    Outside hitters (4): Voronkova, Parubets, Iurinskaia, Vorobyeva

    Middle Blocker (3): Orlova, Lazarenko, Zubareva

    Libero (2): Chikrizova, Galkina


    Ryseva (S), Kurilo (OH), Efimova (MB), Russu (OH) who performed in Belgium are rested this week.

    Btw, who here is truly believing that the KOR team may obstruct the RUS team from going to the 2020 OG? Please raise your hands, don't be shy, I wanna see :lol:

  • South Korea :drink::rose::love:<3 The Best!!


    Never underestimate your opponent!

  • Thailand's trend so far for the last 3 weeks has been 1 win a week. Will that streak continue this week??? We shall see soon enough.


    edit: roster for week 4 in Tokyo

    S: Nootsara , Kullapa

    L: Piyanut, Suppatra

    MB: Pleumjit, Amporn, Watchareeya, Tichakorn

    OH: Wilavan, Onuma, Chatchu-On, Wipawee

    OP:Malika, Ajcharaporn

    Robin did not even play at the WCH and they still finished 4th. They had Belien and Lohuis did a good job, and she`s still young which means she will just get better.


    I don`t think you have been watching NED during VNL, they are playing with new players and putting up on a fight against the top teams. They have a couple of promising players besides Daalderop....Jaspers sisters, Baijes, Luttikhuis, Polder, Meijers,Van Aalen, Timmernan.


    To replace Dijkema they have Bongaerts and Femke.


    Plak-Buijis-Daalderop trio?? They still have Maret.

    and their rooster for Tokoyo is the same as last week in Bangkok.

    Among the THA team's opponents in Week #4: SRB, BRA and JPN, the THA has the best chance to steal one victory from the SRB since Terzic abandons the Final Six and the team consistently plays with B lineup, no the duo big guns. Both BRA and the host JPN are eager to play in the Final Six, playing with strong line-ups, will be pretty tough for THA. But I also won't be much surprise if THA gets zero winning in Tokyo Station.
