Time to open up a new thread for 2020
The most important tournament for this year is of course the Olympics. Gui has to make a good plan to have his team at peak in Olympics. I dont expect him to play with A team all VNL. I havent seen any news about VNL finals being held by Turkey recently but I really hope federation can do that. This way Gui can try all his players knowing the finals are in the pocket. My prediction for 18 players (taking into account the rumors that in VNL all teams can have max 18 players list) :
S: Naz Aydemir, Cansu Özbay, Buse Ünal
OPP: Ebrar Karakurt, Meryem Boz, Gözde Yılmaz
OH: Hande Baladın, Meliha İsmailoğlu, Fatma Yıldırım, Şeyma Ercan, Tuğba Şenoğlu
MB: Eda Erdem, Zehra Güneş, Kübra Akman, Beyza Arıcı, Yasemin Güveli
L: Simge Aköz, Aylin Sarıoğlu
I dont expect any big changes in the roster compared to last year. Gio will stick to his players that he made to the Olympics and worked with past 3 years so Gamze, Neriman or Gizem Örge wont have a chance I believe.
The players didnt have much court time in the league should play all the VNL so my ideal starting seven, at least for the first 3 weeks, is like: Cansu/Ebrar, Meliha/Fatma, Kübra/Yasemin or Beyza, Aylin. Especially the important players of the A team Meliha, Ebrar and Kübra should play as much as possible to get their confidence back.
