Italy - Serie A1 2019/20

  • For Scandicci the biggest problem will be the number of players on the same level.


    Hard to find "original" starting six and you need find that Flow in your game....


    I mean Bricio, Pietrini, Bosetti and Mirkovic. Any of them can be starter.

  • I guess you meant Milenkovic 😉


    Bosetti will stay as starter for sure, Pietrini is still not on a consistent level, so Bricio’s existence is actually understandable.


    Stevanovic seems to be in better shape looking at her movement, a good sign for Scandicci.

  • Yeah Jovana is finally performing as She did in Pomi, and when She is performing like this She is one of the best!


    Lubian is Only doing her job in blocking not so much in attacking.


    But Bricio is not showing something over the top that Her starting role is lock :/

  • Jeez, why did I always think she was American? :white: just found that she’s Mexican.


    Kakolewska is okay for a team like Pomì or Bergamo, but not for such an ambitious team like Scandicci, when is Da Silva joining?

  • Bricio was supposed to rest ('cause she hasn't find her rhythm yet), according to her coach, but the couple Pietrini-Milenkovic didn't work well, so she had to play.


    Every single set of Malinov to Sloetjes is pure trash.

  • And what’s wrong with that? No one is obliged to play for its NT. Maybe she just felt uncomfortable answering about it...

  • They asked her if she's going to go back to national team soon and she said 'it's personal I don't want to talk about it I will not answer questions about national team'

    My God what happend, I can't believe that She might skip Olympics :/

  • Yeah it was quite strange/weird. I was kinda waiting a calm answer, like "Oh yeah, I'm fine. I'll be back in the team", but this kind of answer makes me even more curious to know what happened this summer. Anyway, it's her choice, I just hope she's happy with herself.


    Cuneo, what a good chemistry already. They were all over the field in defense and van Hecke attacked so well. Scandicci on the other side has more pressure and is still work in progress.

  • Jeez, why did I always think she was American? :white: just found that she’s Mexican.


    Kakolewska is okay for a team like Pomì or Bergamo, but not for such an ambitious team like Scandicci, when is Da Silva joining?

    Still Kąkolewska was able to save Scandicci last week with her blocks She scored 10 points playing tie-break and 4th set end.

  • I think that Cuneo is made with underrated players like Van Hecke and Srna Markovic. Zambelli hits well with the slide.


    Mencarelli could've tried Stysiak earlier, she kept Scandicci alive in the 4th set.

  • Tbh I'm not completely surprised. Last year Egonu was about to leave the team before Montreux Volley Masters but then she didn't; this was reported in the newspapers.

    BTW there isn't Serena Ortolani anymore, she kept young players together and didnt complain about being consistently on the bench since she was Mazzanti's wife.


    I don't know but I'm feeling pessimist as usual and I'm feeling the same drama vibes of 2012 Olympics
