10 advice reception volleyball

Turkey - Vestel Venüs Sultanlar Ligi - 2019/2020

  • Buse Ünal (S) deserves to be in a better team though :heart::(

  • It can happen sometimes but you have to stand at the right time and place it perfectly and the ball has to really arrive perfectly and not from a too high point which it usually is to directly spike back.


    It is just one of those things that sounds like they make sense when thinking about it but is way harder in practice. Even the male teams who can jump higher/quicker don't do that often at all.

    I'm sure it's easier to think about than to do, especially if it's a super high skyball coming over, but a lot of those that come back from chasing the ball way out of bounds come back a lot like a free pass. I'm sure it's tricky difficult and would require a skillful passer but I don't think I've ever seen anyone try it.


    Koolhaas picking up the pace here now

  • Ok Nilüfer fought well in that set ending. Deserved 26-28 win. 2-1 now. Let's finish it in 4!


    (Though I'm also rooting for Buse Ünal)

  • Goggles with a couple kills :) What she may lack in blocking or attack skills she makes up for with court coolness. She has this mini air guitar hand signal that cracks me up :rolll:

  • A little trash talking there from Derya. The other team didn't like it

  • Derya Cebecioglu screaming wildly straight into Helene Rousseaux's face after using her block :white:


    But also lowkey: :heart::obey::rolll:

    I cracked up when the announcer just said there at 11-11


    "That's a very high tip from Gözde Dal"


    :rolll:Idk tbh gotta love her..

  • I can see why most people here aren't as interested in this match as, say, FB v Vakifbank LOL. It's not the same level of volleyball, but I like it

  • uh oh, AGY went sleepy and are going to face a Tie Break

  • AGY :sos:


    They have to play with the same energy they had vs THY otherwise I can even see them losing this...

  • tiebreak it is 2-2!


    Nilüfer playing with more spirit the last 2 sets

  • Was there a recent holiday in Turkey that everyone is still a little hungover from :lol:


    Matches at this level reveal unpolished skills that result in errors/lost points. The Big Gun Girl Teams make a different set of mistakes.


    beri, this isn't a good example match, but it seems to me Okayama would crush both of these teams in a match. Really different skill sets. It's like the Japanese learn from the bottom up and Euros learn from the top down. Something like that

  • Buse Ünal serve placement is fabulous

    She looks familiar but I don't recognize the name. Did she play recently with the NT?

  • Koolhaas with a Monster ..................... Dig :!: :)

  • She looks familiar but I don't recognize the name. Did she play recently with the NT?

    Yes! She actually did play a couple times and was impactful

  • AGY 3–2. That was a good match for this rainy Sunday morning :P

    Okayama surely would crush Nilüfer (-Buse Ünal) but I would like to think not with AGY which of some of the biggest talents in Turkey.


    To really judge something like that is just way too hard as you said, the skill sets in asian volleyball vs euro volleyball is so different. Even in the indonesian league they seem sometimes better defensively but they'd get crushed by Euro teams, same way teams as Japan can sometimes. beat Italy or Serbia aka the very best of Euro too. I guess we'd know only if they played vs each other.


    Euro teams are also psychologically not as strong tbh, f.e. this same Nilüfer somehow beat a THY with NT players like Seyma, Anne Buijs, Aelbrecht, Kingdon etc.
