2021/2022 Transfers News, Rumors & Discussion

  • What are all the Italian volleyball players reposting on instagram? Volleyball with a knife and blood in it. What does it mean?

    According to the article:

    Players are expressing total disagreement and opposition in the face of the proposed reopening of facilities limited to 35% of the capacity.

    They are not only asking that. They are asking to reopen with 100% of the capacity, BUT only with greenpass and face masks.

  • If half of the population got the vaccine they should allow it, we need normalcy. Of course those who will watch should still use facemask

  • So Swan Ngapeth has signed with Modena once again:aww:. He had one good season in Latina but the next one with Vibo Valentia he was useless and last season he was a reserve player in Poitiers.

    Modena signed really solid 3rd OH (Van Garderen), so it is kinda irrelevant who's gonna be 4th with Ngapeth, Leal and him, it could have been some junior, but Modena loaned Tommaso Rinaldi (MVP of last WCH U19) to Cisterna.


    Alekno after OG was asked why did Ngapeth play such differently in Tokyo than in Kazan, and he said that in a club he plays for cash, while in NT he plays for his friends and a country. So after all, maybe it's good to sign brother-cheerleader if Modena wants Ngapeth to play his best.

    yeah it’s a package deal. Either Both ngapeth brothers Or none :-). I guess alekno feels bitter about ngapeth and rightly so - he lacked professionalism during his kazan stint. Having said that, how the hell did alekno think it would work, using ngapeth as a defensive outside hitter, covering the libero in serve receive etc... a total non sense. For me his transfer was poorly thought out, really.

  • Shen Qiong, the head coach of Shanghai Golden Age, officially confirmed that Lanza (OH) and Vettori (OP) will join Shanghai VC in Season 21/22.

    President of Skra Bełchatów said that for 3 weeks any contact with Taylor Sander is impossible, his girlfriend deleted all Polish colleagues from social media, and the only thing they know is that they got a message from an agent that he has serious family issues, but him and other club members tried to contact Sander unsuccessfully. He's posting on Instagram actively though.


    What the... :gone:


    The most embarassing part is that Skra gave him a year ago a contract, rebuild him physically for half of a season after his shoulder injury, he played half of regular season quite well, but then he got injured in the playoffs, then he said that he has to pay his debt to the club and decided to stay - and then we have this awkward af situation. I hope there's some serious reason behind this nonsense.

  • An announcer on the AVP tour today said that he's going to be playing beach full time, already has a partner.

    What the... this is wild.

    Gold - European Championship 2013 (M) Prediction Game
    Bronze - World Championship 2014 (W) Prediction Game

    Bronze - Volleyball Nations League 2019 (W) Prediction Game

  • Maybe he got tired of not winning?


    Comparatively speaking,Christenson and Russell are more successful than Sander in club volleyball. The olympics was probably the last straw for him.

    Favorite players: M: Maxim Mikhaylov, Murilo, Serginho, Aaron Russell, Otavio, Simone Giannelli, Ivan Zaytsev, Tsvetan Sokolov, Michał Kubiak, Mariusz Wlazly, Pawel Zagummy W: Sheilla, Zhu Ting, Natalia, Fe Garay, Fofao, Gabi, Thaisa, Foluke Akinradewo, Wei Qiuyue, Ding Xia, Carli Lloyd, Fabi, Natalia Goncharova, Yuko Sano, Saoris Kimura and Sakoda

  • Top clubs (especially italian) probably won't sign Sander/Russell anymore with how injury-prone they are

    and I guess their families won't want to live in Russia or Poland either.


    With the NT, safe to say they won't win anything big in the near future so yeah it would be sensible to switch to beach.


    But agreed, UNPROFESSIONAL!

  • Jiang Chuan, Laurent Tillie and Philippe Blain in the photo

    Might the rumor be that Jiang Chuan will join a foreign club? In Japan or France?
