  • I watched some minutes of the 3bb vs Khon Kaen and supreme vs proflex matches.


    3bb did ok, but their young and inexperienced setter was having a hard time connecting to all the players, especially the two tall foreigner MBs. She sets the ball too low for them and so, most time they have to tip or lightly hit the ball. But I think as the season gets going and she keeps getting court time, her connections with her hitters will get better. Was also nice seeing Aonanong getting a little court time. She is basically like a young Kuttika, but not as skilled yet.


    Khonkaen on the other hand did well with Pornpun as their setter. They were aggressive throughout the match.


    Supreme, you are you, no need to say more lol. Proflex, I don't know how old their setter is, but she needs lots of work. Actually the whole team needs work. Their receptions was just a mess. But it doesn't help that they are playing one of the best team in the league too. So nice to see Dream having court time, but she desperately needs to work on gaining some muscles. She is not like the other players, she is tall(202 cm) and needs the extra muscles to move those long arms and legs of hers faster and stronger. Her spike approach needs work too, she is spiking under the ball and not behind it Nothing a good training and nutrition program can't help her with. If she was taken seriously from the time she tried out for the youth NT till now, she would have improved so much. But she is still young, so lets see how she will develop during the league. Anyway, I think the most promising player in Proflex is Bai Toey. She just needs a better set and training.

  • Agree. Bai Toey is showing a lot of potential in the match. With a good setter, she can do a lot of damages.


    It’d be interesting to see Wednesday match between Korat and 3BB. I think Korat should try to sign Nootsara (if she doesn’t go anywhere) in leg 2. Sirima is ok but the backup setter is not that stable for the team in Korat’s level.

  • Maybe Proflex should have hired Parinya from Supreme as their main setter? Parinya isn't the greatest, but she seems better than the proflex's current main one. Though their main problem is reception, if the reception is bad, doesn't really matter who the setter is, the setter won't be able to properly set how she would like it to be anyway(unless that setter is Nootsara lol).


    I saw a HL of the 1st game of Korat vs Diamond food and Chatchu-on had a couple of nice cut shot right inside the 3 meter line. If she can do those during the NT, she could probably avoid the blockers better. Come to think of it, I think I saw an interview a while back and she was with Ebata in the Museum or some similar place and she was wearing Saori's shirt or at least her Jersey number for a picture with Ebata. Maybe Chatchu-on idolize Saori Kimura? lol...but Kimura's angle shots are a nice style Chatchu-on could probably pick up down the road and could be quite useful in avoiding blockers better.

  • Yes. I’ve read somewhere that she idolizes Saori and Ebata gave her the jersey as a gift during her time in Japan league. Chatchai-on had an ok time with Korat on Saturday but her reception can be improved. I want to see how they can utilize Rebecca Perry as another OH tho. I hope she can play in today match. Korat’s real problem is an MB, I think. The local MB is not very good at all.


    It’s hard to guess performance of the reigning champion this year as all the key players has moved (mostly to Diamond Food VC). I really hope they do well :)

  • I hope she keeps improving, since their will be no more Wilavan to help stabilize the reception line for the NT now.


    If Kaewkalaya Kamulthala and Karina Karuse were available, they would greatly help Korat stabilize their net defense. Btw, were is Karina? I don't see her listed on any teams this season.


    Just watched the Opart vs RSU game from this past weekend. Even though they are the lower level teams, I enjoy their game. I liked Arisa from Opart and Kajana from RSU. Arisa is small, but she sure can jump and hit. Kajana is also a standout with her powerful hit and unique hitting approach.

  • Korat vs 3bb, it was basically Chatchu-on and Filipova vs 3bb. The amount of balls Filipova was getting was almost like half of all of korat's attacks lol. But make sense, since she can score a lot. Perry wasn't much help, seem she isn't use to the faster sets of the Thai style yet. She probably will do better with slow and high balls only. I think she even unperformed in the Philippines last season and was replaced. Would be interesting to see when Korat faces Supreme and the Supreme MBs can block better. But Filipova still has the height advantage, so might just slow her down a bit, but not stop her in her tracks.


    3bb, I don't like how their tall veteran setter mainly stand and doesn't jump set. That makes her sets very predictable. Tichaya isn't as stable as she is, but at least Tichaya jump sets. I think young Parichat has the most potential of the 3. Wished she was as tall as Tichaya and Narumon was. And it was a surprised 3bb started with Anonanong and Saowapa. Saowapa is a very explosive MB. Her attacks are strong and fast. Same sentiment as for the young setter, lacks height:(

  • From Korat vs 3BB match, I liked Jidapa a lot. She can receive and control the power hit balls. I think should be called for NT this year and received the opportunity for playing in VNL 2020.

    Agreed. Jidapa is really good and has a lot of potential for such a younger age. I like that 3BB team tries to use a lot of young players in the game. The only problem with 3BB kids is their height. They’re good in a youth level; however, with this height, it’s difficult to make it in international or NT levels.

  • I wished Wanna would consider training future liberos aside from her coaching gig too. She is the best Thai libero in their history and also one of the best in the world at one time. Young future libero can gain a lot of information from her, same with Nootsara and Pleumjit teaching young setters and MBs.


    I think the only 3 current 3bb youth member that might have a chance in the future NT, are the tall 15 year old MB, the libero and tall setter. But even so, there are several tall young girls in other schools as well that are about 180 cm or taller. So there will be lots of competition for sure.

  • Very Surprised. 3BB defeated Dimond food in 3-0 win. Pimpichaya is MVP for this match with 21 points even though she was playing as OH.

    Kuttika also did well in this game. I always wanted to see her as part of the NT, but I think due to her height, she won't make the final cut. I think the major contributor was the blocking of 3bb, that lead to the win.

    I think there was some mistake at the 3rd set at 18-17 and it showed Onuma spike's speed of 129 km/h:rolll:.....I think 90 something is more accurate:lol:

  • In the men's division, I really like Amornthep Konhan. He especially did well in this last game vs Visaka.


    This is already in the past, but had Thailand used Amornthep as the main starter OP during the SEA games semis, maybe the result may have been different, but it is what is is now lol.
