MY dream team
setters: Fofao,Kun Feng
blocker: Lena Dziękiewicz, Victoria Ravva, Ruirui
hitters: Gosia Glinka, Tom Logan, Loubov Sokolova,Yelena Pavlova,Yumilka Ruiz,Manon Flier
Very close to mine...
I don't have subs, I have players for multiple strategies. The whole idea that subs must be weaker than the "first line" is wrong. You need different type of players, not weaker and stronger, to have bigger choice and ability to adapt to the opponent strategy
blockers: Volkov, Simon
outside hitters: Kaziysky, Kurek
This team doesn't need any reserves, because these guys will be crushing everything

My team of the future is:
Opp: Venno (est) / Sokolov / Van Walle (bel)
OH: Conte (arg) / Kooy (ned) / Kubiak (pol) / Verhanneman (bel) / Mauricio (bra)
S: Nicolas Uriarte (arg) / murilo (bra)

I think that we have a lot of good players that can be a star in the future..

Middle-Blockers: Teodor Teodorov, Mozdzonek
Where is Yordanov in this team - his attack is better than of these two players, he used to average at 60-70% in Greece before the contusion.
Stanley is better on serve and defense, Wlazly is better on block and defense
S: Alain Fabiani
O: Andrea zorzi
OH: Bengt Gustafsson, Laurent Tillie
MB: Zarko Petrovic, Ruslan Olikvher
Fabiani: What can you say - simply the maestro. I feel blessed to have seen him play live on 2 occasions.
Zorzi: lost his spot in the Italian line-up surprisingly fast to Giani after the 92 Olympics, but I consider him one of the all-time best opposites.
Gustafsson: one of the most spectacular attackers ever: just watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deKNKzVBKQg&feature=fvsr
Tillie: another star of the great equipe de France of the '80s
Petrovic: incredible power and style combined (may he rest in peace)
Olikvher: never seen a more impressive block in my live
At one point, Fabiani, Zorzi and Gustafsson all played together for Santal Parma
S: Peter Blangé
O: Olaf Vandermeulen
OH: Lorenzo Bernardi, Luca Cantagalli
MB: Bas Vandergoor, Claudio Galli
The Italians and the Dutch dominated the '90s - so they deserve to dominate this "dream team".
Blangé was unique as a setter, because of his height (2.05), he could give incredible speed to the game. It must have been frustrating for the opposing teams, seeing him reaching for balls high above the net where every other setter would have been lost. Probably the best blocking setter ever.
Vandermeulen: it's strange to notice he only played 2 seasons in serie A1. We remember him for his incredible performances in the '92 and '96 Olympics.
Cantagalli: isn't he just as good as Bernardi? Why does it seem like there is some kind of hierarchy in which Bernardi always is number 1?
Vandergoor - Galli: just wanted to add two MB's with very opposing styles, but still both excellent players.
C'mon, I'm allowed to squeeze in a few of my compatriots as wel, right?
Depestele: once or twice per game, he throws a set from somewhere behind the court perfectly in the hands of whoever is waiting on position 4. Have seen very few other setters ever do that.
Always a joy to watch. Other than that he's a great setter, server, motivator for the rest of his team and he's never injured.
I noticed how invaluable Swiderski is for the Polish team when I saw them struggling against Belgium in the qualification round for the European Championship.
Swiderski dragged his struggling team to game victory with an incredible performance.
Schops is simply "deadly" efficient.
Endres and Hubner: a choice for blocking efficiency.
Wijsmans: a unique player, reception could be a little bit better, but Swiderski and Verbov will take care of that.
Verbov: the way he throws himself in front of those canonballs, a truely fearless libero!
It's a little bit early to start a 2010-2020 list, but I suspect Sokolov is going to be in there.
I saw him playing the 4th set of Roeselare-Trento, and I was impressed. Especially given his age, he's only 21?
