    You are already wrong with your next matches on wednesday@Mathias. LOL

    Double-checking all posts, I don't see anyone calling a player mediocre overall. Flyingdutchman and me were explicitly refering to the players' performances against Aachen.

    Maybe your understanding of english language is different from mine. For me "But, except Drpa, they played only mediocre" means except Drpa all other players are mediocre.

    I have watched all Potsdam games so far. I don`t think they are a bad team or they are playing that bad, they just have not been playing great. Cikiriz must improve her reception, and Dreblow must improve even more. And Imoudu has not been great either, some of her sets are really low and close to the net, sometimes Drpa can`t even take a full jump swing.

    This is the kind of criticism and anylysis I expect from a volleyball fan who is versed in the game.

    Well, if you think they played better than mediocre then I disagree. I think Potsdam played rather bad for most of the match against Aachen except for Drpa.

    How does playing bad in a match makes a player completely mediocre?

    Before the start of the game, I expected Potsdam to win, because they have better players.


    But, except Drpa, they played only mediocre.

    I doubt if you know the meaning of the word mediocre.

    Dresden - Wiesbaden 3:0 (25:17 25:20 25:22)

    MVP: Katharina Schwabe / Tanja Großer
    Dresden played a solid match in all elements, and Wiesbaden IMO was really bad. Last week I was disappointed with Denise Imoudu, today I have to say the same for Irina Kemmsies. She had zero connection with the middles today which usually is one of Wiesbaden's strengths. But nobody of the team played well today...and their coach says they improved a lot compared to the last two matches


    Irina was not as bad as Matthias saw her. Both Eszter Nagy und Simona Kóšová went into the match unfit. That there was no connection with the setter was not much Irina's fault.

    I was quite disappointed by Denise Imoudu's performance. She had big problems with precision, I didn't like her choices many times and she looked very nervous and frustrated with herself all the time. With regard to NT, Irina Kemmsies has been much more convincing for me this season...
    Acosta was very good in the first two sets, later Imoudu completely forgot her. Luckily she discovered Drpa right in time to win the match. Vilsbiburg got some help from the referees in 3rd set but overall deserved the point they won after two very bad sets in the beginning.

    To say Denise was very nervous and frustrated with herself ALL THE TIME when they played a perfect two first sets where Vilsbiburg never really happened and her passes were near perfect is far from the reality on the court yesterday. Vilsbiburg did not only got some help from the referees in the third set but he literally gave them the set with his not less than 4 bad calls in favour of Vilsbiburg or else Potsdam would have won in 3 straight set. That the whole team were outraged after those bad calls from the referees in the third set is understandable but a more experience team would have managed the situation better as Potsdam did. Good that your opinion about who has been more convincing between Denise and Irina is just your opinion and it count for nothing in selection for the NT.

    Regarding Potsdam: the question is, if the mixture of players is right - having so many German players in the roster threatens this mixture potentially, good to observe last season.

    Why should nationality have to do something with it? It always depends on the individual character of the players and staff how the team works as a group...


    You are right, therefore I need to explain more carefully: the German clubs are in the uncomfortable situation, that only a rather limited number of German players fitting into a good team are available. If a club concentrates now to engage many German professionals, they have not many options to construct a strong and fitting roster. This is mainly due to the low number of good German professionals... therefore an education and conditions issue, not one of nationality directly.

    Not necessarily: if the players are carefully selected, it can work out of course. And this was better solved in Schwerin than in Potsdam last season, we have indeed to wait, how the chemistry between players is the season coming.


    What a weird line of thought. Are you trying to say Stuttgart with almost all foreign players will definitely click as a team and play a good season? Maybe you should tell us more about what happened in Potsdam last season for us to be able to understand your line of thought.

    First look at this year's team.


    Only 17 players on the photo, from the invited players Denise Imoudu, Berit Kauffeldt, Hanna Orthmann and Anne Hölzig are missing. No idea if they join later or what other reasons there could be...


    Anne Hölzig and Denise Imoudu will be in camp from Friday.
