Taubate V Sada
This forum is a bit dead, but had to contribute concerning this match, which I was looking forward to.
Was really looking forward to watch this given how Taubate played last match - but what a mess!! Castellani either failed to realise (or didn't want to) that Uriate was single handedly destroying the attackers - never seen Lucarelli losing his attacking confidence, then Douglas, and Lucao was just a shadow and in the end couldn't even block. He waited till set 3 to change Uriate - like why?????? Yes the passing was suspect at best, but even with good passes Uriate just had zero connection and virtually no consistency at all. I felt quite angry on behalf of Lucarelli and the hitters.
Facundo played well. albeit with his few trademark really bad moments. Abuba was the real hero. As much as I am not a fan of Rapha, it was a HUGE relief to see him on court today, just for some kind of stability.
Between Uriate's inconsistency, and Visotto who always seems to be on another planet, this team is frustrating to watch!!!
That's all from my little rant lol
