the Pomi setters are not bad, they are beyond terrible
I don't know what happened to Radenkovic. Like 3-4 years ago she played better. A lot of people would say she was in weaker league. True but her team (Atom) was able to easily beat Novara for example
Haha Probably it was her best game this year. Btw, her served on 4th set was on 12th meter on opposite side
I still remember Britnee Cooper and her spike when she hit one of the spectators (It was in Rzeszow probably so it was 15-20 m spike)
Chemik lost to Grot Budowlani at home even though Brakočević didn't play and Budowlani's OPP had under 20% spike rate
This is why they won Femke didn't have player that she could set 60 balls in 5 sets so she had to play smarter. She used middle blockers really well and made 9 points herself.
But Sanja Popovic can play as OH, She was playing whole season with NT as OH.
I know that but Chemik made a statement that Sanja will arrive and Martyna will change her position from Opp to OH. That probably means Sanja will play as backup opposite.
Yes, it looks like she will the backup becase Busa, Mirković and Ogbogue are in starting-six and the limit in polish league is: 3 foreigners on court.
Anastasia Guerra (ITA/OH) in Budowlani Lodz. source
I think she will play for ŁKS Łódź because Budowlani signed with Bączyńska last week.
Btw, after one week Selime Ilyasoglu left Radomka Radom. I guess she is not healthy and can't play.
Brittany Abercrombie will play for Radomka Radom.
"Fallout" from WCh is here: the weird new FIVB world ranking, with WCh 2018, but without (WTF?) VNL, there is still World Grand Prix 2017 in the ranking, which doesn't make any sense for me:
9. South Korea
Full list can be found here:
OMG, North Korea is on 33rd place. Last time I saw them playing in 2013 at the Universiade...
On the other hand, Belarus in on 52nd place and they played quite well the last 3 years, achieving quarterfinals in ECH 2017. Dominica, Saint Lucia and Fiji are higher in the rank...
This ranking is probably the weirdest that I have ever seen.
That would be because Kurek is going to tranfer to Russia, it wasn’t certain last time i checked but he wasn’t paid so they let him go. She will follow him probably wherever he goes.
Yes but the rumours about Russia are weaker. Now, they speculate that Kurek will choose between Warsaw, Rzeszów or Brazil.
Anna Greman left Chemik Police today.
Rumours: Klaudia Kaczorowska will left PTPS Piła which doesn't have money another year...
Joanna Kapturska in Radomka might be replaced by American opposite.
Kurek, Hoag, Tichacek and Maziarz left Stocznia Szczecin today.
Yes, she won't be able to play for other team in CL.
But Sorokaite has been playing OH since game 1 ....and Satana has not been doing well this season as she has been hitting around 30% which is not good.
If I remember right she played as OH the whole season in Piaceza few years ago.
