    Karsta Lowe is rumored to come back to Busto


    S: Orro

    OPP: Lowe

    OH: Herbots, Gennari

    MB: Bonifacio, XXX

    L: Leonardi


    trainer: LAVARINI


    for the second MB Olivotto and the polish MB of Pomi are rumored to be a serious possibilities.


    It seems a very balanced team. If Lowe plays like when in Busto the first time and how she played sometimes this seaon, Busto can be a a serious underdog.

    Congrats to Busto! third CEV cup of its History! Yesterday I was in PalaYamamay and the atmosfere was great 4215 fans very close to sold out (4.490).

    Busto really deserves this cup. Herbotts will be one of the best OH in Europe once she grow up a little bit more with experience.

    Alba Blaj played a good match and actually without the entrance of Grobelna Alba would have won the third set increasing the pressure of Busto.


    Busto needs a better OPP (Lowe?) and a better local MB instead of Berti (OIivotto or Melandri?). Of Course th eBudget of Conegliano, Scandicci and Novara is to high for Busto possibilities.

    it's a long time that I do not write.... here i write the info/rumors I got in the last weeks:


    HAAK ---> VAKIF

    EGONU ---> CONEGLIANO

    SLOETJES ---> SCANDICCI OR MONZA

    LOWE -----> BUSTO OR MONZA

    DIOUF -----> SCANDICCI OR MONZA

    ORRO ------> BUSTO OR NOVARA

    CAMBI ------> NOVARA OR BUSTO

    GENNARI -----> BUSTO OR NOVARA

    HERBOTS ------> BUSTO

    BONIFACIO -----> BUSTO OR NOVARA

    DANESI ----> MONZA

    FAHR ----> NOVARA OR BUSTO

    LUBIAN ----> SCANDICCI

    PIETRINI ----> SCANDICCI

    LIPPMAN -----> FIRENZE O NOVARA


    Monza will have a quite high budget (higher than Novara) and Firenze will have a budget similar to Novara.

    We expect the following position concerning budget


    1) CONEGLIANO 6ML

    2) SCANDICCI 5 ML

    3) MONZA 3ML

    4) NOVARA 2,5 ML

    5) FIRENZE 2-2,5 ML

    6) CASALMAGGIORE 2 ML

    7) BUSTO 1 ML

    What do you think about the new 6+1 of Busto Arsizio?


    Setter: Orro
    OPP: Grobelna
    OH: Meijeners (Herbots)
    OH: Gennari
    MB: Berti
    MB: Bonifacio
    L: Leonardi


    I believe it is a good teams eventhough depeds a lot from the recovery after pregnancy of Meijners and from the 2 belgian players that never played in Italy.

    Confirmed Rumors from Busto Arsizio:


    Bartsch (OH/USA) to Novara
    Diouf (OPP/ITA) to China
    Spirito (L/ITA) will leave
    Stufi (MB/ITA) will leave
    Wilhite (OH/USA) will leave
    Chaucheva (OH/BUL) will leave


    Enright (OH/POR) from Novara to Busto
    Leonardi (L/ITA) from Modena to Busto


    Unconfirmed rumors
    Orro (S/ITA) could leave
    Malinov (S/ITA) could arrive in busto
    Barun (OPP/CRO) could arrive in Busto

    someone knows if it is possible to watch streaming the F4 of italian cup! I am a busto supporter but actually I am in Mexico because of my job and I would like to support my team;)

    Busto Arsizio in the 2 two matches of the seaon showed a very solid organization.
    I recognize that the match of Saturday was quite easy one but after years in which the team wal built with nosense now the situation changed.
    Bartch is really amazing player. She is not so spectacular but she easily do whatever very well. Her serves are always difficult to receive, she hits porwefully and she can dig very well.
    Saturday Gennari seemed to be the one paying in Casalmaggiore few years ago... very balanced player with good defense and hits.
    The weak point as at now are the connections between Orro and the MBs. Studi and Berti are not receiving so many balls and when they receive are not so much precise.
    However I believe that Busto can compete for the 4th place in the ranking (Novara, Conegliano and Scandicci are really stronger than Busto).

    As at today according to my personal believe the starting grid of next serie A will be


    1° Novara-Conegliano
    2° Modena-Casalmaggiore
    3° Scandicci-Busto
    4° Monza-Bergamo-Firenze
    5° Pesaro-Filotrano-Legnano


    Conegliano has the best team but they must play with 3 italian on field considering that Novara can really be at the same level if Egonu will alreeady play at top level.
    Modena and Casalmaggiore appears as expiered strong teams but actually quite far from the top 2
    Scandicci and Busto will be completely renewd with very young and talented teams. If they are able to assembly the team quick they can compete with Modena and Casalmaggiore. At the contrary in case it requires long time they will compete together with Monza, Bergamo and Firenze
    Pesaro, filotrano and Legnano will compete not to be relegated.


    this is my personal feelings

    Have any information about Angelina Giulia ??? Where will she play next season ??? stay in serie A2 or will join to serie A1 ??? ?(


    This year I really liked her performance in some games. She is a young and strong attacer and her receive also seems okay. Why new clubs in serie A1 Lardini Filottrano or Mycicero Pesaro are not interested in her :whistling: it's waste time for her playing in serie A2, I'd like to see her in serie A1 and maybe she will improve her game day by day and will be new face of Italy who knows. I do hope clubs from serie A1 will give a chance to her :whistling:

    She signed already with a team in A2

    Volleyball.it said that Busto completed the OHs diagonal with Gennari: does that mean Whilite will be titular? O.o
    I hadn't understood that...

    Gennari will be titular. Whilhite will start from the bench.
    Busto will buy other 2 OH. Rumors says about Bartsch and Marcon.

    Liu-Jo Nordmeccanica MODENA wants a wildcard from CEV to play CL (qualification, I guess). Because they were vice champions and only via special rule of Italian league Conegliano gets the qualfication slot in CL and considering the CEV cup as not interesting, they decline to play CEV cup, for which they are formally qualified. Now we will see, how much of a favor the CEV will do for an Italian team :lol: .

    Conegliano is in CL because they win the regolar season. I think that 1 slot is fair for whom dominates the regular season.
    I really hate that italian team does not want to partecipate in CEV or challenge. I hope that Scandicci or Busto can partecipate in CEV and challenge

    In Busto will probably arrive Botezat for Pisani, Orro for Signorile, Gennari for Fiorin.
    The last two are known but I didn't remember anything about Botezat and I didn't know if Fiorini was staying anyway; I hope it's not a double.

    Botezat was the first name written in the local newspaper. I believe she is a good blocker she needs to improve in attack but she can be a good bench player.
    As far as I know Orro already signed the contract and Busto will probably announce it next week.
    Gennari should sign next week.
    Fiorin is not staying in Busto.
    The only 5 remaining are Diouf, Stufi, Berti, Spirito and Negretti. A small chance to stay is for Martinez. busto is evaluating the situation. Possible alternative are Plak, Santana and Bartsch.
    Vasilantonaki will be probably substituted by the american OH Wilhite

    From the info I have Egonu wants to play close to Milano and the only 2 teams actually negotiating Egonu are Novara and Busto. It is likely that Paola will play in Novara but Busto has some small chances.
    Enright will be the second OH (or even the first one) and Novara will look for a third one in the next weeks. Plak is leaving.
    As said Gennari will play in busto as second OH replacing Fiorin. The first OH will be Egonu (or most probably Plak). Busto is aldo trying to sign Bartsch
