    Troll my ass...

    I didnt know Zhu was her last name, but it sounds much better than Ting and even her teammates call her Zhu...

    35 year old world champion gets her first name on her shirt, for the first time in her career but

    20 year old prospect who achived nothing significant can not...

    Maja Ognjenovic, had Ognjenovic on her jersey, in her 2 year stint with Eczacıbaşı...

    I told you its a Vakıf thing, some kind of tradition...Not complying with this simple formality is peculiar to me..

    it might be the most normal thing to you...

    if you cannot see my point you can go to hell...

    :roll: I can't believe I actually entered this discussion, but...I checked some old photo galleries on CEV website. Glinka and Brakocevic had their last names on the shirt, the other foreign players their first name. So, YOU DO HAVE A CHOICE, but judging somebody's character based upon this choice is ridiculous...

    From Cambridge Dictionary:


    Peculiar:


    C2

    belonging to, relating to, or found in only particular people or things:




    Out of 13 players Haak is the only one with her surname written on her jersey, yes that makes her peculiar...

    And she has a beautiful name, not something atrocious like Malgorzata...

    I believe Goncharova and Boskovic are the only opposites who make that amount of money…

    And I am sure Boskovic did make much less in her first two years with Eczacı…

    I am dissappointed with Vakıfbank they used to be more savvy with their money, unlike Eczacı who hand out millions like some Arab Sheik..

    Haak certainly doesn't deserve that amount...

    As for the name on jersey, if it is so small matter why does princess Haak cant get along with the rest of the team? Its a club tradition to use first name as is custom in Turkey, its a nice local touch...And obviously Haak was stubborn that her surname be used…

    She must have a peculiar character in that pretty head of hers...

    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...
