Valentia looks strong.

Im still betting on Stanford but yes Wisconsin is the team to beat.
I don't believe either. The rumor started because yesterday the president talked about the roster, and said two italians MB and two american players are about to sign. One is Lanier as talked already, the other is speculated to be an opposite (it's the only role still uncovered by the rumors), so now they're just naming whatever US opposite comes to mind
Hooker in Italy? 😂
A question: What happened to Inky Ajanaku? I remember her being transferred to Galatasaray but she got injured. Did she quit playing after that injury?
She’s already working in a biotech firm I believe. She’s been injury prone since college. Had an ACL during college, then got another right after college in USA gym (she was supposed to join USA in its campaign in VNL 2017), again another ACL before joining her Turkish club. So total of 3 major injuries.
Washington and Ogbogu would be sitting on the USA’s bench if she was healthy.
Nilüfer renewed with Helene Rousseaux. I believe Buse Ünal has a contract as well. So I guess they will look like
Buse Ünal-Atkinson-Maglio-?MB? - Rousseaux-?Oh?-Buse(L)
This team is good enough for a fifth or sixth place. Even fourth if they really pushed hard.
Mingardi is better opposite right now. They don't need her. I hope Busto will sign 1 more foreign MB. They will not be strong as this season but again on very good level.
If Adams is coming and with one more foreign MB, with great setter that they have. Busto will be very fun team to watch.
So far or the confirmed players of Busto?
Karsta will most likely play in China with shorter season. She wants to be in Anaheim as soon as possible to make the team going to Tokyo. I heard she plans to retire after Olympics which should have been this year.
Havelkova is rumored to join Pomì too. Maybe Helena and Lloyd can find the same vibes they had together in Busto in 2011/12 season.
Since I like Montibeller Rosamaria, I hope Pomì can build a competitive team.
That team were killing it. Lloyd, Havelkova, Havlickova, Bauer, Meijners and even Marcon played really well. This is the first pro club of Lloyd and she’s always the top blocker of her team 😆
And then Alisha was the setter during the GP 12 finals, won the title and got cut from the Olympics. I'll never understand that.
Still a mystery to me. US has some odd ways of choosing Olys team players.
Perugia is trying to sign Megan Hodge
I thought she’s done with volleyball. Still, happy to see her back in the sport. Though she never really reached her full potential because of injuries.
I remember her playing under the guidance of Lang Ping and looking at the stats that time her receiving vastly improved that would make her become an all around player then she was suddenly sidelined because of injury.
Btw, she’s perfect for Karch’es system.

Lol you dont get it. Well! That's your opinion and you are just fine with it. Lets say if a team already contacted a player. All agreements were paid and If i would be the player i will grratly honour my agreement because of my respect to the team who noticed my skills in volleyball meet the club's criteria. This is not because the other team paid the former any money. The main point here is honouring contracts. It led the former team to look for new players in the market. Do you even know the stress she made to Flamengo? You just said that was just alright because hitachi paid Flamengo but how aboud the result of it to the former? Uhmmm looking for new players to complete the team! have some time to understand this! 😅🤣😂
Sadly it’s you who don’t get it. There was a mutual agreement between two clubs. In fact Flamengo earned from it no matter how small so what stress are you talking about? Were they stressed to begin with?
Flamengo could’ve easily refused the offer of Hitachi so they will not be “stressed”. So again, why blame Tapp when she was the who was tossed to go to Japan? 😂
i would honour contracts i first signed. that for me is my business. having a word of honour and respect to other business partners/reputable clubs.
I don’t want this discussion be any longer but Hitachi paid Flamengo for her release in which the latter agreed upon. So I don’t understand why Tapp is to blame (as imposed) when she actually honored the agreed arrangement of the two clubs.
LOL she isnt a star to begin with! I would invest with mayany! Sometimes foreign players are so entitled to almost everything!
Lol! Hitachi bought out her contract from Flamengo. There’s no entitlement on her part, just plain business.
Japan-China 2012 Olympics semifinals
Yulia Panova. I thought that she would make it big the first time I saw her play in which she carried her team.
Priscilla Daroit. She never really leveled up in comparison to her contemporaries like Natalia and Garay.
