2019 FIVB Women's Club World Championship

  • I think Tianjin will be stronger that way... No need to bring more people, even if they are amazing like we know they are, and mess up with the chemistry, tactics and whatnot... Good decision

  • Conegliano has the best team, on paper, in all of female volleyball since at least 2008 Brazil NT. They have a world-class (by that, I roughly mean Top 100 players in the world) on literally all 7 starting positions, plus 1 or 2 more on the bench, while Vitra has arguably 4 (one of whom will be sitting on the bench). So, 8-9 world-class players including one of the Big 3, while only habdful of other clubs in the world have more than 4 (though none more than 6).


    Frankly, the very fact that we don't take it for granted that they will stomp the opponents in every single match in every single competition this year is a testament to how much we think they play below their potential.

  • The way VakifBank and Zhu greeted <3 so much family vibes. VB 2021 will be EPIC :super:

  • Conegliano to me is also definitely the favorite. They and Eczacibasi have been unbeaten for the longest time, will be an interesting start of the tournament :super:

    I too, do not like bringing more people. But at the same time, I want to see those people.....

  • Eczacibasi beat Praia 3-1 (25-21, 25-16, 25-23, 21-25) in the friendly game.

    Minas beat Novara 3-1, but I couldn't find more details.

  • Is Claudinha not fully healthy or Ananda is officially Praia's starting setter for the season?

    I read somewhere, but i didn't find the source again, sadly, that Claudinha played this friendly match.. She is indeed recovering from a surgery and probably she is not 100% yet, but is slowly returning... When she is fit, she will be starter, Ananda isn't reliable enough for such a big team (neither Claudinha imo, but at least she has experience).

    but so far Ananda is doing a great job with Praia

  • Are you excited tomorrow? Eczacibasi vs conegliano for the opening game!


    I am expecting a 5 setter game for this match and i don't care who win 😂


    But with the magic hands of wolosz, i will give it to conegliano.
