Is there any "inside" rumors about Alexia being naturalized? There were some rumors about that.
ECH will be played right after the Olympics as well. I hope to see new faces in there to make the first steps of the Paris 2024 team.
I think the majority of the group that will play in Olympics are already choosen by Guidetti in his mind.
S: Naz and Cansu
Opp: Meryem and Ebrar
Oh: Hande, Meliha
Mb: Eda, Kubra, Zehra
The 2 spots for OH position is open. Seyma has been TERRIBLE since the begining of the season. She has 0 contribution to THY and the weakest link in the team. Neither her attacking nor her receiving is in an acceptable level. She strugles even against the worst teams in Sultanlar ligi. Otherwise Derya and İlkin show better performances and have some potentials. Vnl's first 2 or 3 weeks should be used to determine who will pick the last OH spots. My team for first 3 weeks for VNL is lime
S: Cansu and Buse Ünal
Opp: Ebrar and Yağmur Karaoğlu
Oh: İlkin, Derya, Seyma, Saliha, Meliha, Fatma
Mb: Aslı, Yasemin, Beyza
L: Simge and Aylin
Meliha needs some court time as she doesnt play full time(However Gui uses all his players quite well, she isnt forgotten in the bench)
The best players from this group should be added to A team and play the rest of the VNL. Gui likes to play mainly with his A team but it isnt a good idea before Olympics. He has to make his team ready for Olympics not to VNL finals.
Mihajlovic is 29 years old. Does she has a plan to retire soon? She can play until 2024 olympics easily.
Fulden was always a mediocre player for me and you were thinking she is quite good local OH that can be usefull. I exactly remember this conversation because I watched her carefully right after this discussion and she was still mediocre And Derya should have switched her position to OPP because she had terrible receiving￼ technique. Other than that, I agree with you, Meliha and Hande duo is quite stable and I wish Neriman would come back
I deliberately excluded her. She is just mediocre. She has found a place in low level teams just because there is no one else. She is a bad attacker and doesn't have a stable reception to compensate it.
She was useful one upon a time for you
Seyma has been TERRIBLE since the begining of the season and she has played most of the matches. I am really curious if Guidetti will call her for the Olympics(if it happens). She has terrible numbers both in attacking and recieving. Never saw her attacking ratio over %30
Maja is the best setter of all time for me. I have the impression like "she has found the 'trick' of volleyball" whenever I see her play It is a big pleasure to see her on court and her conditions and skills show that she can play at least 2-3 more years still. And I am sure all the volleyball fans would like this to happen. Vakifbank is a great club for her as well, not playing all the mathes, having great conditions in club and possible big achievements. Fingers are crossed
Fulden has been playing so poor lately, I wish Derya Cebecioglu would play in Nilufer, or Tugba Senoglu.
I hope teams wont invest much wont play in Sultanlar Ligi. Besiktas, Karayolları, Beylikdüzü were all hopeless last year. 16 teams are too much and Turkey doesnt have so many local players to provide a good level league consists of 16 teams. I wish federation would make a team like 'Club Italia' to invest on young prospects. 14 teams are somehow acceptable but not 16. The economics in Turkey and all over the world is getting worse and it is getting harder to invest in sports. By the way I wish Aydin would play in European Cups. They are building a good team with quality local players and they have good foreign players too. Except big 3, THY and Aydin has good teams. Even though there were roumors Galatasaray wont invest much I am sure they will have a decent team as well. Nilufer always makes good choices for the foreigner spot (there are roumors Van Ryke will play in Nilufer and I hope Helena will stay too).
The limit for the foreigner should be 4 to make local players go to other teams rather than sitting on bench in big clubs. This way big clubs wont have necessary to have talented local players in their bench. However this is very unlikely before the Olympics.
There are rumours about Vargas being naturalized. How about Sinead Jack and Meijners? Can they also play as local players since they are married to someone Turkish?
Where did you get this information about Vargas? There were some rumors abput this last year too but then nothing happened. I hope it comes true. Vargas would be a great addition to NT. She is still too young
I am aware that the Serbians are living in Republica Srpska region but they are BIH's citizen so they can play for BIH NT as well. And as far as I remember before joining the Serbian NT, Mihajlovic did play for BIH NT so Serbians can play for BIH NT as well. I would be pissed by Serbia if I were Bosnian because of stealing the talented girls from BIH (just kidding, I know players choose to play for Serbia)
I am curious about this so I want to ask it in here because it is related to Serbia. I know that Bosnia and Herzegovina is actually is divided to Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Republica Srpska. However I believe the people from both sides have the Bosnian passport so why dont these players from Republica Srpska choose to play for Bosnia and Herzegovina. Is it easy to swith the nationality that easy?
Thank you for the good energy
you are a doctor?
Yes, I am a doctor in one of the emergency service in Istanbul.
good luck keep us updated please on your situation and everything else you know.
I am still at hospital doing my job but the infection specialist told me that I am not needed to be tested considering the current guideliness , as I dont have any symptoms such as cough, dyspnoea or sore throat and my connection with the patient wasnt in 'risky zone'. However the ones that had to be closer to the patients and intubated is on the quarantine right now.
Thank you for the best wishes
There are 98 infected patients and 1 death confirmed in Turkey. And one of my patient that I examined in 11 march is highly possible is Covid19 infected. My hospital got informed me today and I am probably gonna tested soon.
Every team participates to Olympics will send their C teams to VNL.
Why are you guys so butthurt? He said something dumb and I called it out. And yes I would do the same thing offline as well
What he said about closing borders with Italy was very understandable but as you say it is your general attitude so it is okey
"Turkey was one of the first countries that closed borders with Italy. "
It shouldnt be so hard to close a border that doesn't exist😏
Are you really like that in your real life too? or is it so much easier to behave like that in forum ? Get a life please instead of attacking everyone that is not having the same opinion with you.
I agree with taylor10 that the minister is doing a fairly good job with this coronavirus thing. I am saying this as a doctor in emergency service in Istanbul.
