    I like Volkov when he's calm. He used to scream very loudly in every points he gets but i didnt see many of that in this match. He's a very good young player with great attack and service. Russia is still struggling with the passing. Both ohs are very bad at reception.

    Tbh, Hill isnt attacking good in Vakifbank. Hill's attack % is usually the lowest. Maybe because of Naz's sets many bad balls to Hill too??? But her reception is improving so much. She can covered Zhu and sometimes Vakifbank used 2 reciever system. Her floor defence is amazing too.


    Imo she sometimes plays as a second libero in Vakif lol

    Netherlands volleyball league isnt up to standard, so it's hard to find a good player there. Many new players are so short and i think they won't be able to compete with world-class opponent. There are many who are 189+ cm but there spike reach arent up to 305cm. What im surprise is Dagmar Boom is on the roster. I mean i like her and she is the best reciever in the u18 roster. However, her height is still too low.


    There are many interesting player i want to see they in line-ups too, which are Nika Daaldelop, Laura de Zwart, and Marlies Wagendorp whose spike reaches are 317, 325, 312. Laura de Zwart's spike reach is even higher than Lonneke!


    Based on the facts on CEV page. Nika Daaldelop play as an opposite. The opposite position's already given to Sloetjes lol but i believe she can be a good backup too since Pietersen converted her position to oh. Laura de Zwart is a middle blocker which used to be the position for duo de Kruijf and Belien. Maybe she can replace de Kruijf bc she is injured. Marlies Wagendorp is a middle blocker too, so this roster will have many good middles.


    However, the real roster's gonna based on their performance during the practice but i really really want to see some good new players from Ned national team


    Ps. Sorry for my English

    Does Vakif have a chance to get wildcard for CL next year bc i really want to see Ecz and Vakif in CL. These two teams are the biggest clubs in Europe. Btw, had anybody watch son set interview with Vakifbank's players???

    Without Rasic, Vakif even lost to Gala. The opponent will have easier attack options bc she's very strong in blocking. Vakif needs her blocks in order to defend the balls easier. That's one of the reason why they lost to Gala. Their defence isnt that good imo

    How sure can you be that Vakif will lose? I already said this before, losing Thaisa will not be too big a factor (at least not in the SF match against Vakif) if Rasic will not play as well.. Kubra is a good blocker, while Adams is a better attacker so IMO they kinda cancel each other out. It will be a contest of who is a better OH/OPP in Zhu/Sloetjes vs Kosheleva/Boskovic. As much as I want EcZ in Finals, I think in current situation Vakif has higher chances but I hope I'm wrong.

    Maja is not injured, she was in Ecz's live video during the practice. I also saw Milena in Vakif's practice video. If Milena is not playing, then Vakif will definitely lose...

    Hi, nice to meet you all.
    First of all congrats to Gala for getting into the finals
    The bronze medal match between Vakif and Ecz is going to be epic. Tbh these two teams definitely deserve to be in CL next year since these two are the richest clubs in Europe. Moreover, i dont think Gala will do well in CL next year. The only reason they beat Vakif is Vakif defence was a disaster. Imo Im 99% sure that Fener will win vvsl this year
