    Yeah I gonna say that

    Gennari deserved a call but Mazzanti says she wouldn't work with players that didn't take part on the cycle and specifies it with piccinini so I doubt she do it but in case


    Mazzanti had already said last year that he would give a chance to Gennari for Tokyo, and she has recently confirmed that she will be in NT this summer


    Also Alessia Gennari will be called for VNL.

    God what did Chirichella do to her hair:white:


    And... I wonder how she did that, since all hairdressers are closed in Novara's region due to lockdown.

    If it comes out she went to a hairdresser/a hairdresser visited her during lockdown, I think it's something she will have to explain.. she is the captain of the National Team, she can't just ignore the restrictions that all citizens are required to follow.

    What rumors?


    It is great if you provide a link or a source besides pure info, thank you in advance. :P


    It was on Bruno Voloch's blog I think. Rosamaria can play both as OPP and OH if needed, so she could be the right replacement for Daalderop and a reliable back up for Karakurt, who has great potential but is still a bit unexperienced.

    You guys think Sorokaite will make the Tokyo roster or will Mazzanti instead bring an extra person in another position?


    I don't know what Mazzanti will do, but there's not just Sorokaite as backup OPP.. also Mingardi and Nwakalor have some chances IMO. He might also choose to bring a 4th MB instead, since Folie is not so healthy.. We will see.

    I understand what Pardar means, that OHs are involved in passing and that this has an impact on their offensive %. It's true...

    But the point is a female OPP with 60% has never existed before.

    Egonu is the highest level OPP ever seen so far, she jumps and with her long arms she hits the ball much higher than anyone else in the history of this sport. Nobody else has ever achieved her level, even Boskovic, Gamova, Agüero, Zetova, Phipps or whoever.

    Egonu is something we have never seen before in the history of female volleyball. Let's be aware of this.

    Didn't this already happen a few years ago?


    There was just a change of the main sponsor, with Zanetti instead of Foppapedretti. But Foppapedretti family has always remained in the club until now. The club belongs to them, so if nobody wants to take over it will disappear.

    https://www.volleybergamo.it/i…zie/comunicato-ufficiale/


    Sad news from Bergamo. After 30 years, the Foppapedretti group and the historic president Luciano Bonetti have decided to discontinue their activity and leave volleyball. Which means this was probably the last season for Volley Bergamo, unless someone else shows up and takes it over.


    In the last 30 years Volley Bergamo has won:

    7 Champions League

    1 Cev Cup

    8 Italian Leagues

    6 Italian Cups

    6 Italian Supercups

    I don't quite agree about Busto having "overachieved". I'm sure that if they'd had less problems with injuries and Covid and most of all if they had fired Fenoglio earlier they would have had much better results throughout the season. The way they are playing (and winning) right now is pretty much what their roster was built for I think...


    I partially agree.

    Busto is a low cost team, built with low budget, they signed the best they could with the money they had. Their management is made of very smart people who know how to make a good team with low budget, simply because they know about volleyball... and they have a 'vision'. They see where the potential is and they sign it when it's still cheap.. Jordyn Poulter and Alexa Gray this year, Herbots and Washington last year..and so on.

    But CL semifinal is an overachievement that nobody would have ever expected. A huge success for this Italian club with low budget which should be taken as model example for many others, especially some Turkish ones, who just have money but with no vision at all.
