    After Liktoras (completely untouchable on first place) Podolec is my favourite Polish player, i "fall in love" with her after amazing performance against Serbia on World Cup, truly after that i didn't get a chance to watch her many times, but she stay my fave.

    Best wishes to her :rose:

    I loved Podolec in WGP 2007 match against China when she won it really alone with 30 pts and 60% in attack while nobody scored more than 10 pts after her and I thought then, a star is born. But then all these injuries...

    In general I am sad that Poland had so many good players at the same time, with OHs like Glinka, Podolec, Werblinska, Rosner and Swieniewicz for some part. Playing in OG with Glinka, Podolec as OHs was a big part contributing to bad result. But I guess Bonitta was scared to put Skowronska or Podolec on bench ..

    Please consider how lucky the team was to have only 7 good players and use them almost 4 years in all conpetition without injuries. Many too teams have at least some good replacement on the bench if anything happens, Ned did not but managed to be on top few years.

    Actually I believe Lippmann could really play in Poland. Considering it is still unsure when Italy goes back to normal and that they cut their budgets. Polish 2 top clubs are not affected by coronavirus much and will play CL so I would not consider that strange to go here.

    Poor Wolosz. She has to deal with poor teammates. Turkey isn’t spectacular. Its just two bad teams fighting hard.

    Actually from all Polish players besides Smarzek who probably had her worst match of all time Wolosz was second worst. Even with this bad reception her sets were terrible tbh especially 1 m too narrow set to Smarzek on match point.

    yeah such great euro teams like CRO, AZE and BEL are missing from the OGs ... how they’ll be missed. what a joke you are.

    Still Belgium is better than KEN, ARG and maybe DOM an THA/KOR. But this is not about Europe has to have most teams. Just the qual system is failure.
    The most justice would do to have continental qualification at first and then international ones. Not the other way.

    I think 100% is something we shouldn't use simply in this tournament :lol: I think the fact Turkey lost once vs Germany is actually what is an advantage for Turkey vs Poland in a possible final. They already saw some great strengths of Germany live, Giovanni and co. will be more prepared. Just look at the Belgium match, without the friendlies the first match might have ended with a Belgium win but thanks to those friendlies that didn't happen in the tournament. Same can happen in group stage. I looked at H2H, Turkey 13-5 Germany and Poland 12-5 Germany. Same kind of record.

    Like I said though, Germany showed best volleyball imho. They are still the favorites against anyone in my opinion.

    But what h2h? From 200x years? These players are retired already. At least since 2015 Poland always defeated Germany.

    Hmmm... Let me guess... Is it maybe bcs ur Polish?


    Turkey has a good record against Germany, but to me at this point Germans are equal faves against anyone because of this amazing game.

    No. It is because Poland has perfect record against Germany. So before the match there will be other mental attitude. If it is Turkey, Germany showed they can beat them few days ago. But for Poland... I don’t even remember when Germany has beaten Poland last time but for sure it was long ago.
