    This girl, Gözde, has no motivation to play volleyball. She was a promising player once, 4-5 years ago but she has choosen to sit in the bench for ages instead of playing as a starter in any team other than big 4 in the league. She could have been the starter OPP instead of Meryem who has played in every season and hasnt sit in the bench. And now, we see that she will go to Vakifbank:wall: I cant understand her desicions, you are a pro volleyball player(27 years old) and when you look back at your volleyball history you only sit in the bench:mad:Anyway, good luck to her, she loves this way. And I dont want to see such players in the NT, I agree with Umu11.

    Neriman as OPP and Hande/Meliha OHs duo is the best now. Neriman had played as OPP in her team but as far as I watched her some matches, she switched to position 4 when her team served. This system can be used in NT too. Hande feels more comfortable at position 2 and Neriman at 4. And I believe Hande's receiving is better than Neriman.

    I am really happy to see Neriman back. She had played a great season in Japan and definetely needed for this team. She is just 30 years old and still has something to give this team for the road to Olympics.

    The wide roster looks okey but I would like to see Sahila Sahin instead of forexample Cansu Cetin or Humay Topaloglu. Saliha had some chances to play last year and she had quite a good season in a mediocre team like Karayollari. She has bigger potential than Cansu(who is 26) and Humay.

    Overall I dont think the team will have big changes compared to last years roster. My ideal 14 is like:

    S: Cansu, Naz

    OPP: Meryem, Neriman, Ebrar

    OH: Hande, Meliha, Fatma

    MB: Eda, Zehra, Kübra, Yasemin

    L: Gizem, Simge


    VNL starts so early this season and the players from the semifinalists teams(the majority of the group) wont have time to rest so the players have played less in their clubs should play the first 2 weeks I think. VNL doesnt mean anything to me actually. It would be nice to be in the finals but if we dont, I wont care. No need to play all summer with the same team like last year. The team cant play with its maximum level all summer long and the peack level should be reached at Olympics qualifications and ECH. So my ideal starting 7 for VNL's first 2 weeks is like : Ezgi/Ebrar, Meliha/Fatma, Kübra/Yasemin, Aylin.

    Because in Mihajlovic birth papers says that She is “Serb” (or serbian :gone:) but She is citizen of BIH.


    That is with all nations in BiH (Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian)

    I am surprised. Does ID card really says you are Serbian or Bosnian? I mean if you have BIH's ID card you are Bosnian.

    Why she has to wait 4 years? As far as I remember Mihajlovic didnt wait even 1 year to play for Serbia when she got the citizenship in 2012 before World Olympic Qualification tournament and I remember even she was surprised by FIVB that approved so quickly.

    That is what I am against for. You know nothing about me but you have your opinions. I dont want anything like that in this forum. However, I wont go any further. Everyone has own opinions and I respect that.

    I dont know why you have brought this subject here, it is nonsense. This is a volleyball forum and I dont think anyone here wants to read political news. Turkish volleyball has been in the world stage since 2003 and Erdogan is the president since 2002 and biggest achievements have been achieved after 2010 (both in NT and club teams) . This is not fare to show like he is against sports in Turkey and he is the biggest 'obstacle' for development at sports in Turkey. You dont have to like AKP or Erdogan but there are many good sports halls and stadiums made in Turkey since AKP government. Turkey has organised many tournaments and eager to organise more. Turkey isnt Arabian or Iranian like country (unlike many Europeans think of) and never will be. So I must say I am very uncomfortable because you brought this subject to here(noone makes this in this forum and you have just started hijab thing also.)

    I have a request from the moderators that both messages from beri and me should be deleted. This is a sports forum, politics shouldnt be involved because everyone has own opinions.


    Edit: You can think like I am Erdogan fan and votes for AKP but I am not. I have voted like 7-8 times since I am 18 and always voted against him. I have always voted for CHP and I still vote. I dont like many many things of what Erdogan has done. However, I believe it is unfair to show him like he is against sports in Turkey and now everything will be better yeeeaahh. I believe this victory for CHP and Ekrem Imamoglu(:heart: ) is a great improvement for Turkey but it is not relevant to volleyball.

    This OHs trio looks so defensive for my taste (though I think Kelsey is a great all around player). I wish Mihajlovic would be in Vakıfbank. Actually I am quite sure Guidetti offered her a room in his team but Mihajlovic has been rejecting it(there were rumors about that last couple of years). Considering Eczacibasi has Boskovic-Natalia and Fenerbahce has Mihajlovic-Vargas duo, Vakifbank will miss Zhu a lot and have a great difficulties at crucial times because they wont have their 'safe button'. I am curious if Gui will choose to play with either Ebrar(OH)-Rasic or 3 foreigners at OHs-OPP.

    I agree that Busa made a great tournament for Serbia but playing that style in club for 6-7 months would be so exhausting. And also I am afraid libero position will be a bigger problem because I dont see any Turkish libero suitable for 2 receiving system. Gizem and Gozde was so good at this when Glinka played OH in Vakifbank but Gizem was one of the best liberoes in the world back then. Eventually I see Mihajlovic having a bigger role at receiving unlike Serbian NT. However I still think Busa isnt what Fenerbahce is looking for

    As far as I remember Vargas signed 3 years deal with Fenerbahce but I couldnt find any news about it. Do you remember that guys? or is there any news about it?

    I really enjoy watching Vargas and hope that she will stay many years in Turkey. If Fenerbahce has signed just 1 year she will get many good offers from Italy, Russia, China and even Japan. Please stay in Turkey Melissa:win::rose:

    Why didnt Orthmann play NT last season? She looks such a stable player and she surely could have helped Lippmann. Lippmann, Orthmann and Geerties trio look very stable and stronge. However German NT lacks a good MB nowadays( God, how I miss watching Fürst:heart:)

    Vakıfbank is one of the best teams in the world and maybe they have the best organisation, players feel comfortable and can get many international trophies.I mean , many world class players would like to play for Vakıf even they offer half of what they offer.That situation was not like that 10 years ago when Turkish league just started to be better, and the clubs had to offer big amounts of money but now it is different. The club management shouldnt feel like they must offer ×2-3 of what they earn in their clubs now. Haak is a good player but she hasnt proved anything yet and offering her a 1 million euro is a big dumbass of the management. Haak can be convinced to 300k euro easily.

    Polen and Gözde Yılmaz become very good players by training with worlds best trainers all these years. Cant you see 3+1 wont make NT better and we are still at where we are 10 years ago.

    WCH results: 2006 》10, 2010》6, , 2014》9, 2018》10

    Where is the improvement? We couldnt qualify to Olympics and I dont have much big hope for 2020. Look at Serbia's evolution in last 15 years and this is because their players play everywhere in the world.(Even when I say I am talking about the mentality difference and dont say they dont have a decent league, you did it:teach::whistle:) We are quite good at young age categories and maybe better then them.Italy manages to be one of the best NTs in the world with 4+ foreigners but our little, fragile girls must be protected by the rules because their heart would be broken if they cant find a team in Istanbul nearby their boyfriends.


    Anyway, everyone has own opinion. I would like to watch more competitive league than a NT that fails always in the big tournaments.
