    I spent most of my last weekend watching the epic Athens Olympic final women volleyball RUS -CHN... and all I can say is “damn , how much I miss those Russian -strong -physical players ... what’ve happened to Rússia ( women side ) I wonder myself ?! ... theyre really great to watch!

    I was watching last night a couple of matches of USA NT for the past WCH and watching very close to Lloyd’s sets decisions and precision. Maybe it’s me , but I get the feeling that The fast game is in her very own nature. However , Ive got the impression that once she feels the pressure and is pushed to go faster and faster , then she starts making silly mistakes and therefore bad setting decisions. I don’t like to compare players to each other , as each one is a whole different world and style , but seems to me that Alisha’s shoes will be hard to be filled out. I eager to watch how Micha and Carlini ( which for me is the closest one to Glass’ style ) evolve into this roll these upcoming years....

    I heard in a podcast an interview done to coach Kiraly - after the WCH -in which he’s asked about USA’s immediate future Opp. options. Per to him , Murphy and Lowe will continue working for at least the next two years , and mentioned Plummer as some one with real potential to join the NT. However, he made clear the point that not everyone can switch that easily from College level to the international level that easy and quick , as Lowe did.

    I’m sorry for the off-topic, but do someone knows about how much the average prices for the matches at the Montreux volley masters are ? I’m planning to go this year and want to have an idea . I’ve tried to check in their official website but it says they aren’t Available yet.

    More surprised about the choosing of Whilte over kingdom than Lowe over Drews . I guess he called her back for a reason ... and here she is ...

    Btw, I just read coach KK has a contract with the USA NT until 2024... 🙂


    Fabris (FIPAV president) complained about the same thing. He said he a meeting with the presidents of the most important european Federations. It's ridiculus NT season lasts more than the club season. There is no rest at all. Injuries increase every day. Even the youngest ones aren't perfectly fit nowdays. FIPAV even wanted all the italian teams out of the CEV competitions for the 2018-19 if nothing changed...
    First of all, at least for me the club season is too long, not the NT one. We have a bunch of really annoying events like World club championships. At least CL last shorter now. The NT season is not so long, it's just WNL and WCH which is not a lot, the case is, the WNL should start after at least one month break. If it was scheduled in July it would be good at teams would have a lot of time to prepare for WCH.
