2019 FIVB Women's Volleyball Nations League

  • Araki, Inoue, Tominaga, and Tashiro sat this tournament out. When they return things will improve. Nakata should have given more time to not-yuki/koga/kurogo instead of being just half-assed about it all

    That's true. These four players could improve things a lot. I also want to see Uchiseto in wide roster instead of Nabeya. She can receive the ball much better. Do you know more about Nagaoka? Is any possibility that she will return to the World Cup?

  • Do you know more about Nagaoka? Is any possibility that she will return to the World Cup?

    I haven't heard a peep. As far as I know she either re-injured her same, or the same injury on her other side, so likely another year (from last November or so) for recovery -- at the optimistic end of things. Frankly I'm concerned she may never make it back.

  • good that Bulgaria gets relegated, they were the worst team. At least Korea will look better when their A team members can come back again, while with Bulgaria's corrupt af federation we'll never see a good team on court

  • Bartsch is the libero for the USA today:what:

  • No Karch Bartsch is not going to become a receiving specialist suddenly :rolll::aww:

  • Lot of miscommunication in the Dutch team, especially when Knip is involved. Dijkema is making stupid decisions as usual:roll:

  • Ogbogu is doing a great job.. but I don't think any of the USA's middles is as fast as Foluke

    Hey, Foluke is the greatest MB attacker in Women’s volleyball so I’m not surprised at all... ;)

  • Finally Schoot is in!

  • There are so many USA players that have the same style of serving. The lifted hand approach. Very identical. Speaking of identical, it seems like this OPP that is playing right now is very similar to the Katniss Everdeen-ish OPP that they have - tall, blonde, left-handed. I see a pattern here,

  • So apparently Karch wants to give the OHs some receiving reps, but neither of the liberos are experienced enough so I'm kinda confused.. Maybe Lake is injured?

    Mary Lake is not active on this roster for this round. Foecke replaced her for some reasons. Meanwhile Courtney was sick and probably still not at 100%. So you have Foecke who is just not there yet defensively and Larson who doesn't have the quickness anymore to be really effective for that role. So unfortunately their best option for now is their 2 other OH.
