2019 Volleyball Nations League (VNL)

  • There's no way Sliwka is a guaranteed first teamer.

  • Russia and France better live up to this match, yesterday's USAxFrance match was uninspired to say the least.


  • Heynen seems to like him and he did really well during the group phase.

    In my opinion, Kwolek and Bednorz are currently better than him.

  • oh man that was a nightmare. it was good until 13-13 in 2nd set (Heynen's red card) but when Poland stepped up, Iran went 3 steps down ! and never came back. hard to blame one player the whole team was bad specially Marouf and Hazratpour the libero.


    I don't know what Kolakovic was thinking. they were hopeless and he started making subs only at the end of 3rd set when it was already late. (even a 3-2 win was equal to 3-1 loss) when you can't play worse than that you have to do something. things just don't get better by themselves.


    congrats to Poland. they were amazing last night and again tonight. at some point they were digging almost everything.


    I doubt Iran can even challenge Brazil tomorrow. I expect a quick 3-0. Brazil won't play two bad matches in a row. that was a good VNL for Iran but when you play the whole tournament with 7 players (and using subs only when the result doesn't matter in couple of matches) you can expect such a collapse when it matters.

  • Volkov/Kliuka-Kurkaev/Iakovlev-Poleatav/Kobzar for Russia

  • France can't get past Russian block..

  • 1set is a blowout.. 25-16 Russia

  • France has been very passive thus far, they need to step up if they intend to advance

    Russia didn't need to show much, block has worked pretty welll though

  • Volkov is tanned, he looks more masucline lol

  • Patry will have nightmares with Russia's block :white:
