    Russia will lead Ushakov on the European Championship as a coach. Kuzyutkin is no longer with the team, his new role should be a consultant.


    The Russian Volleyball Association admitted that it had made a mistake with Kuzyutkin.


    This has not been posted anywhere, I learned it from my source.

    Does anyone know who will play in the playoffs 6?


    If will be like last season, three clubs from the same country can not be in the Final Four is certain that one pair will be Fenerbahce- Eczacibasi.


    Volero will to win against Krasnodar be the second-best second. They will not be able to play with Dynamo Moscow.


    With them, according to some logic should play best first, probably Vakifbank ?

    It was not really a prediction, more a feeling that Uralochka is ready now. And lately I watched an interview with Sinead Jack from Trinidadian (?) TV on Youtube where she was asked about her club and she answered that last season they finished 3rd and this year the goal is to achieve a better result, and knowing Karpol I was sure the team would be very well prepared for the semifinal with this goal.


    I could watch only half of first set unfortunately, but it was very interesting to see Safonova instead of Pisarenko in starting six. Anything wrong with Pisarenko or was it just Karpol's choice? Safonova is a very unusual player for nowadays, too short to play MB, very good in reception and defense, but better at hitting quick balls than high balls. That leaves Uralochka with Klimets being the only one to attack high balls, cause Ilchenko also gets rather fast sets to the outside and the pipe. Pisarenko used to be the other choice when there had to be a high ball, but she never was very convincing.


    Pisarenko two days ago received a strong shoot to the head in training. She hit by Jack, and received a strong brain concussion.
