Is it true that Mihajlovic will play in Tianjin in China in next season ?
But there is rumor that she will go to Chemik in Poland
yes, I agree with ravens#7.
Ding Xia in and Shen out. I always consider Shen as the transitional setter after Wei Qiu yue because of the similar style.
Tiredness. Chinese would definitely show that too, if they had play USA not Dominicana yestreday. China deserved the win today, they played better, but nothing to scream about, too dependable on Zhu Ting, boring to watch.
I wonder to know what your opinion was when Serbia lost China but won USA in the next day, even what you are going to say if China beats Japan after against Russia.
Hehe. Lose is just lose, which is not determined by the schedule directly.
According to the Tianjin Sports, Hooker will not be willing to Tianjin Bohai Bank Club when the club wants to sign the official documents with her.
And the candidate for the club will be a MB player from Cuba, who played as OP in Italian league.
As I know, she is too happy in China. She was not in good shape last 2-3 years due to chronic injuired. Hope she can start in first 6.
She arrived at Beijing with her husband last month. Hope she could enjoy her matches and life in China~
Seda as backup? would be bad for Seda..i hope she can be a starter..for that to happen,she will have to play well..
Just a guess. For Beijing team, they mostly need a balanced OH I think. Robinson's ability could be better helpful for them to solve this problem.
I don't know what the shape of Seda is. Maybe Seda and Robinson would play as OH in turn.
Everything would be possilbe before match begins
Considering Beijing has got Chunlei Zeng, IMHO Seda will play as non-receiving OH.
In last season, Zeng Chunlei played as OH some time. Because one of her OH teammates was injured.
Maybe Seda would be the substitute for Zeng Chunlei as Opp. And Liu Xiaotong and Robinson are the OHs.
no, that's not correct. it was gina mambru who landed on CHN's side of the court, and xu landed on mambru's foot. it was a bad sprain. (same thing happened with ITA, del core landed on mambru's foot but it was a minor injury.)
you can see it here:
around 31:30. very painful.
Yes, that's corret! Mambru is a disaster on the court.
Manon Flier's club for next season?
She will play in Fujian of China, as the OP.
Here is the Chinese league 14-15 information from tomen: http://inside.volleycountry.co…yball-women-league-14-15/
anyone has updates on xu yunli's injury from yesterday?
Although she didn't break her bones, it's afraid that she couldn't play the next matches. Yuan Xinyue will be as a starter for the SF.
I almost gave up watching when China finally woke up with great fights. Congrats girls!
Hui Ruoqi and Zeng Chunlei are not in good shape as they were at the beginning of the tournament, so as Xu Yunli (wish her good recovery). Lang Ping should use more Yang Fangxu as OPP who is better in defense, block and smarter in attack. The sub setter Shen is getting faster but still not smart, only trying to set to Zhu Ting. The sub OH Liu Xiaotong is of no use. BTW, China libero must be the worst in all teams, maybe no worse than Croatia ......
Maybe China can gather all of its good players next year in World Cup since we don't need to distribute some good players to Team B in Asian Games.
About Dominicana, I think their block is the key to their success besides De La Cruz, Rivera and Castillo, totally supressing fast side attacks of China today. They may put a hard time on Jaque, Garay and Sheila tomorrow.
I went bed when just finished 1st set. It was lucky for the girls to win this match. But I agree wtih what others said. It was indeed a boring match. Even if CHN could go for the final 4, how they could win opponents which are more faster and more balanced...
China's libero was terrible whereas Castillo has been always amazing in WCH. Although De La Cruz, Rivera, Vargas and Mambru have good performance as well, I think they could win their matches toughly mostly because of the 'CASTILLO' amazing digs. From this point, they are more worthy of final 4 than CHN..
I always think the policy of restricting NT players playing in pofessional leagues by China and Cuba Volleyball Bureau are killing their national teams. Talented players don't have chance to train and improve with world-class players to accumulate experience and mentality. And they don't have fans to cheer for them around the world. I hope someone in Chinese NT can stand out just like what Li Na did. But now the sports field remains underdeveloped for China, what a pity!
To let girls go out and others come in will be
of great benefit to Chinese volleyball. But it’s meaningless for us to discuss
this issue here. We cannot control the officials’ minds . Thanks to Lang Ping
for bringing top-level players into Chinese leagues, such as Tom Logan, Costagrande, Brakocevic.
I seriously feel bad that China is playing top 6 now. I don't want to underestimate the girls efforts but all China can offer is good attacks from Zhu Ting and smart sets from Wei. Rest is boring. Middles have a serious problem in their attacking approach. There is no defense at all as well as terrible receptions. I believe Serbia and Turkey would have much more to offer in top 6 against teams like Brazil.
Hope this is not the best China can offer otherwise it will be such a shame.
You could say China is lucky to be one of the
top 6 because of the pools. But they did do well during the games against other
countries in round 1 and 2, especially the matches with AZE, BEL and CRO.
I definitely agree with you about the poor
defense, reception and blocking problems of China. They always have these
problems, as well as the poor serve. And these problems are criticized by our
Chinese fans. The girls can execute the strategies well sometimes. But they cannot
keep that all the time. As for the match last night, the Brazilians dominated
the whole game. They are so familiar with China NT that they restrained our
attacks through good serves once and once again. It’s not China’s normal
performance. However, an enormous gap remains between China NT and Brazil NT.
Probably you know that, Chinese players who are
in the national team list could not attend the other countries’ league. Only through
high-level leagues, could they improve themselves. We all hope they could become
the professional players, rather system ones.
Btw, which Chinese player would you want if they
could participate leagues abroad? Just for fun
im taking China out of the medal contenders and put Italy instead...
Brazil is most likely team for gold... then Usa,Russia,Italy
Italians team play combined with figting spirit let them beat Russia and Usa....but i dont think they can beat Brazil..bcz Brazil is the best in terms off fighting spirit when it counts..
USA, RUS and ITA will play hard for 2 places of the finals. How could they be in the top 4 list at the same time?
Congratulations to China. Everybody did very well in the reception, blocking and digs!
Look forward to better performance in the next matches
