    I totally forget about Ilayda, she was a great prospect too. Do you have any idea what happened to Ece Soner? Do you know which players were out of roster because of injury and which ones due to 'coach decision'?

    I've never heard of Ece Soner, my guess is Sude was injured because she was with the team a week before WCH, İlayda was left out because of personal issues with coach, and Peyman was left out probably for similar reasons, she was not injured afaik...

    Sude was MVP in U18 Balkan Cup that took place just before WCH, she must have been injured...

    Two other key players are missing from the squad, Peyman Yardımcı, lefty opposite who's a member of U18 Fenerbahçe team that won Turkish League...

    Peyman carried the team in offense in EYOF earlier this summer, during which Turkey beat Italy twice, both in groups and 3rd place match...

    Probably most important player missing is MB İlayda Uçak, who I feel is a better player than Merve Atlıer who won best MB in U20 WCh, She could have made a huge difference...

    So, because of an unlucky injury, coach Şahin Çatma's personal issues with some players, and messing with the team in EYOF probably to make his own mark, Turkey finished 9th in a tournament that they could have actually won...

    Yeah one freeball drop is more important than 3 reception faults...

    We lost the tie-break because of Busa's 4 point serve-run, during which we made 2 faults(Ebrar, Hande) and one overpass(Simge)...

    Shit happens, The mistake at 9-6 was nothing, every decent team should be able to get over it, and move on...

    If the team couldnt recover after the mistake at 9-6 then they dont deserve to be European Champions...

    These kind of actions/behaviour (like Naz) kills your team. Actually during medal ceremony Naz was quite angry so maybe it was the reason?

    Naz was probably angry for being left out by Guidetti for the latter half of the final...But insunating that your teammate and rival in your position is incompetent and responsible for the loss on national tv is too much and says a lot about her character, how an ambitious little skunk she is...

    What is worse is Cansu probably did not get it...She's that innocent/dumb...

    On a Turkish TV broadcast where the whole Turkish team was present, Naz openly accused her teammate Cansu by mentioning the incident when the game was 9-6 in tie-break by saying that "She cannot forget that moment"...

    What a skunk!

    The score became 9-7 after that, Turkey was 2 points ahead...

    And I cannot forget your 50cm low set to Eda when the score was 13-12...We literally lost the game at that moment...

    Turkey has been criticized by other European Countries for their "easy" naturalizations in athletics,so it's an issue in other sports as well.

    Money will probably solve all the problems

    Have you ever heard of Ottoman(Turkish) Empire, Meliha's ancestors were Turkish citizens for hundreds of years...She's more Turkish than Egonu&Sylla are Italians or half of USA players are Americans..

    Azerbaycan is another candidate to host the European Olympic qualification...

    They only need 6 more points than Croatia and 2 more than Belarus in ECh19 to become the 8th team in the tournament...

    I hear their president is crazy about volleyball,

    and signing of Caprara shows they're quite serious about the Olympics...

    Theoretically they can outbid anyone, since they have truckloads of oil-money to burn...

    Agree but she is a fighter also. VakifBank just wouldnt let her sign another team smh!! Tbh A.Ü. Yeşilyurt is a real dark horse this season with Tuğba-Derya oh duo :love:


    I think Yaprak Erkek should focus on perfecting her defensive skills, offensively there are many superior.

    Tuğba's real problem is her defense, and that's probably the reason she can't get along with Guidetti...

    Let's hope playing fullseason helps her in that element, she won't come back to Vakıfbank or be selected to NT unless she has a break-out season...


    Yaprak's offense is underrated, she scored almost as many points as Derya, with similar efficiency in U20WCH, She's a different type of player though,

    obviously her future rests in defense, She's on the short side, and not super-athletic but she's quite smart for her age (She's just 18), and I can see her to become Parubets-like if given enough attention..

    Tuğba is probably mentally strongest Turkish OH, regardless of age, right now...

    But she has really serious problems, She plays no defense for one...

    Yaprak Erkek seems one step ahead of Tuğba, but she's a player of lowly İlbank and will probably forgotten like Ezgi Dağdelenler

    Turkey haven't improved one bit in two years, that's mentally...

    It's hard not to be sad for Guidetti, with Netherlands they become mentally stronger in one year and didn't fall back...he can't to anything about this choking mentality in Turkish team..

    Let's be honest we don't deserve to be in Tokyo, If we make it somehow I'm sure our girls won't be able to handle the pressure and just beat the African team and come back...

    I think it is best to focus your anger to wards Turkish Fed and FIVB. 1.) It is Turkey’s responsibility to secure Ismailoglu’s release papers from Bosnia from the get-go. Why are they are only doing it now? 2.) How is FIVB finding this just now. Speaks volume about their incompetency. She has been playing for Turkey for many years and this papers are just being secured now??

    Are you dense or sth? It's obvious, Chinese Federation was looking for things to exploit in Turkish players papers...

    This is not an on the moment thing, there's serious planning behind this. They probably looked for and spotted Meliha's lack of proper documents in VNL finals or VNL week 4 then waited for IOQ to bring it up...

    That's what makes all this very disgusting....


    PS. my like for your post was accidental I was trying to click quote...

    Pelin Eroktay, who is the most talked about player and considered the best of the bunch is pretty disappointing...

    Honestly she looks like a left handed Gözde Yılmaz to me...I don't see a bright future for her...


    The real gem in this squad I feel is #2 Aleyna Göçmen, she seems to be good in every element, and has the goods(athletism, technique, ambition)

    to be a great player...Considering the fact that she plays for Vakıfbank and will work with Bosettis next 4-5 years, I think she can become a true world class OH...

    Tell me the name of the better option please?

    Guidetti is done with Polen, and Gözde is better than Melis Durul and Ceyda Aktaş or whatever...

    You're blowing this up, she won't play more than a set or two in VNL much like Ceren did last year...

    You're wrong. Nt roster had 3 opposites last year, Meryem, Ebrar and Ceren...

    Ceren is injured and Gözde is replacing her. She's the best option available.

    That's it.
