    Guys, guess how the second set just ended....

    Lanza served out! What a surprise XD

    Perugia and Civitanova look like a buch of great foreign players with random italians put into the court just because three of them must play.

    Italy's math was awful. We faced 2 strong teams (Russia and Serbia) and we lost twice.

    This team just doesn't work.
    Giannelli is too young and he ALWAYS plays bad in the most important matches. It's easy to play well when you are facing a poor opponent :whistle: but the great players come out in the match that means something.

    Lanza = do I really need to say something about him?

    Junatorena = maybe he was thinking about his newborn daughter, he wasn't with the head on the game

    Zaytsev = it looks like Serbia worked just on how to block and defend him

    The middles = with the poor reception, Giannelli couldn't use them a lot, but they scored some interesting blocks

    As I said a lot of times, our problem is that we can't play with Lanza. He is a mess. SInce we don't have Parodi or Kovar, we should play with Zaytesv as a outside hitter along with Juantorena. Nelli should play as a OPP (but I think both Sabbi or vettori would have been a better choise)

    Maruotti showed better thinks than Lanza and he should have played more IMO. I also think yesterday Bara should have come in the court way before than in the 3rd set.

    PS: Ravens, I can't watch it on TV because I'm abroad...

    OMFG! Was she serious or on drug when she said it? looool

    Ok I still don`t know what does Yavbou means?…nommes-le-team-yavbou.php


    Un soir de novembre 2013, l'équipe de France se baptisait ainsi après avoir estoqué la Seleção en quatre sets. «Des potes m'avaient dit avant le match que les grands Brésiliens, il fallait les bouillave», déclarait Earvin Ngapeth après coup. Ce terme, «Yavbou», du verlan «bouillave», est issu du romani (langue parlée par les tziganes) et signifie en réalité «battre à plate couture» ou «avoir un rapport sexuel viril», selon la signification que vous souhaitez lui donner.

    In november 2013, France won against Brasil in 4 sets. The word «Yavbou» comes from the "verlan" (slang words created in most cases by changing the order of the syllables) «bouillave» which means "to devastate", which was what they did that time to Brasil. That's it.

    I don't understand people which are defending Zaytsev :S National team is national team and there isn't space for personal interests. If you want to play for the NT you should obey rules that apply to everyone. Full support for Italian Federation :obey:

    I agree! :drink:
