Turkey - Misli.com Sultanlar Ligi 2022/2023

  • Never understand why Humay didn't go to clubs where she can play as a full-time starter, she had potential to be a decent all-around OH for Turkey. She's still good.

    Seriously? She is really bad. She made 16 mistakes today 🤦 attacked with 29%. Although she is supposed to be a defensive OH, she is THE WORSE receiver of the league based on overall season stats. Also at attacking she is one of the worse with 32%. I don't think she even deserves to be even a reserve player in sultanlar ligi next season

    Her current form isn't great, she barely played all season, neither the last one. Idk her stats and I didn't watch much of the match, but I still saw some flashes of what she used to be when she played regularly, and I personally liked her back then and her technique and thought she has potential.

  • Interesting interview with Ayçin Akyol

    He confirms that he is staying in Galatasaray

    Her best teammate is Mina Popovic

    Her height to the 9th grade was 1.64 cm<3 :D

    She likes Popovic too much. She said for her, Popovic is the most positive, helpful and humble person She has ever seen in her life. :kiss:

    She didn't barely play, she played quite a lot this season indeed. Mostly against weaker opponents even. She was used as defensive OH in previous season which was kind of okay but this season her reception is a big flop and her attack is basically non existent


  • Tijana Boskovic finished the regular season with the best offensive stats in league history (since 2013)

    59,5% in attack :super:


    She absolutely deserves to be highest paid volleyball player in the world :cup:

    Most points per set in the league, best kill percentage among spikers (both of these with a significant lead over the 2nd best), highest efficiency and all that in a quiet year, where she rarely had to shift into a higher gear, and where she was only the 16th scorer. Still, 26-0 score.


    I guess paying up for such a quality backup Opp was not a waste of money, despite some concerned citizens...:P

    Just check out the post above, you will see that Bosko got similar attacking ratio 3 years ago while she has Melis Durul as backup Opp. Also last year she was best scorer per set and best attacking spiker with 52%. So I guess she could have shown such a performance without paying up for such a quality backup Opp:roll:, so it was indeed a waste of money 🤑😉

    You want to go into the weeds? Okay, we can do that.;)


    In regards to last year, she wasn't actually the player with most points per set in the league in the regular season (you forgot that the final table includes the playoff stats;)); admittedly, the 1st player, Gaila González, had a miniscule lead over her of less than 0.01, but the point stands. Also, she had to score much more overall points than this year (396 vs 303; 7th top scorer vs 16th) meaning she had to expand a lot more energy and the team was much more reliant on her. And while you chose to ignore the elephant in the room, I won't: there's an enormous difference between 59.5 % and 52 %. And I saved the best argument for last: 26-0 vs 22-4.


    In terms of averages, your best argument would have been the one year of the last 4 you forgot to mention, 2020/2021. She had more points per set than this year (6.5 vs 6.45) and the lead over the 2nd best even bigger (0.44 vs 0.39). But again, she had to score even more points, even accounting for more matches due to more teams being in the league (4th top scorer vs 16th). Lesser kill percentage (54 %). And 24-6 vs 26-0.


    And finally 2019/2020. In terms of overall numbers, this might be your best bet. Not only most points per set (with an even bigger lead over the 2nd best than this year, 0.54 vs 0.39), but also the top scorer of the league, at 402 points. But for this argument, more points is actually bad, because it means she had to spend a lot more energy. Also 54 % kill rate and 20-2.


    In conclusion, while 2019/2020 comes close, there is no doubt that this is her most efficient year, where she had to expand the least amount of energy AND it translated to the best record for the team in the regular season. Now, you can claim that it is entirely a coincidence that all 3 of those facts happened in the year she had the best backup Opp, but at that point we would have left the world of facts and entered the Cloud cuckoo land, wouldn't we?


    Note: There's a couple of more matches to be played this year, including potentially one more for Egonu, but I don't expect the overall results to radically change.

  • Btw, only belatedly did I realise that tweet above is inaccurate, because it clearly implies that the results shown are for the regular season, and in the regular season, Boskovic had a higher kill rate than Haak in 2020/2021. It probably includes playoff stats, but in that case it's clearly inappropriate to say that this year's regular season of one player is highest in the history of the league when the other results include playoffs.

  • So after the regular season, this is the standings

    5-8 playoffs

    Galatasaray vs Aydın BBSK

    Nilüfer Belediyespor vs Sarıyer Belediyespor

  • Happy with the outcome despite that I wish Cukurova made the finals instead of Aydin and see them as more of a threat (But Nicoletti deserved it) Big flop from Kuzeyboru as well :rolll: The final round should be fun, sad that Van Ryk is out because THY will not be a threat as they would be. Nilufer should get that Challenge Cup ticket and I hope they keep much of their squad alive. The second is up for grabs.


    Also glad to see Ilbank go, they didn't add anything to the league as they never do and I'm not a fan of Bolu or their toxic and racist fans so I'm glad they are out too.


    Rooting for Eczacibasi to be champs!

  • Pınar Atasever ended her sports career with a match against Vakıfbank

    Off topic, but this 6 teams look so similar to me, you cannot be sure who is winner before match at all.

  • I support Nilüfer

    Really like this band more and more:super:
