    Zhu didnt make any mistake at offence and she attacked 54 times:obey::obey:


    The W-P stats of zhuting is 28 points. The total W-P stats of vakifbank is 43 and w-p points of fener is 34. That makes the difference.

    That means if we take the mistakes into account,zhuting contributes 65% of positive points which vakifbank gets!:teach:


    Anyway I still think vakifbank is really weak compared to last season.:wavy:

    yeah but on other hand their reception is super unstable.

    Zhu is better reciver than Bricio, She improved so much so I we can say that Zhu become very stabile with her reception...

    Zhu is the main receiver in the national team and she contributes a lot on the defense. Although China loses to italy in the semis in world championship, china receives better than italy. Moreover,China beats USA twice which has the best receiving line in world championship. However, in vakifbank she has teammates like slotejes and robinson and milena rasic. She can focus more on attacking. The most important , she has much more rest now compared to the tournament in the national team. Gio really loves and cares zhuting! Vakifbank is really the best volleyball club to work at!!!:teach:

    Ok I get that its not the main tournament, but VNL silver and you see NO chance of them qualifying for Olympics? I mean come on...


    Ofc Gio cares about winning, he' putting his best team on court (Zhu has injury) but it does not work so he has to improvise > Ebrar OH.

    VB invests millions of dollars on volleyball, such teams don't really care about NT that much its about their investments, ofc Gio will start thinking about NT but VB is his priority right now.

    Because turkey is in the europe. There are teams like serbia,italy, netherlands, russia...... and russia is improving very very fast. Turkey has to be hurry now...:teach:


    btw vakifbank is also the main sponsor of turkey national team!:teach:

    That's really embarassing and even damaging their league standing: they lost third set and already one point against the underdogs... (Vakif)

    I do not think guddetti cares too much about the league standing. Vakifbank does not need perfect record now. He is also the coach of national team. In the fourth set, he begins to let ebrar receive. This is a smart move during the regular season!! Because now I do not see any chance for turkey to qualify 2020 olmpics with these young players according to the performance in world championship~~~:teach:


    In other words, vakifbank builds a excellent enviroment for these turkey young players. They can train and play with top players like zhuting,lonneke, rasic and robinson. That is what I think vakifbank is training camp for turkey national team!:teach:

    It seems ecz vitra is the strongest team on paper again this year. But I think imoco volley is real strongest team this year !!!! Good draw for vakifbank, there is enough time for vakifbank's foreign players to rest and be in good status gradually.

    I feel both teams are not ready for this match, especially vakifbank. Four foreign players just arrvied turkey three days before the match.

    This season ecz vitra has the highest investment again. I can feel the pressure of motta during this match. He can not afford to lose any important match with such a big investment this season. However, without naz and gozde, vakifbank will need some time to recover to the level as last season.


    For my point of view, ecz vitra has a better squad in domestic league now . Let us see how far can these young players in vakifbank go.


    As for champions league, i think italy teams will be much stronger than last year. Vakifbank and ecz vitra will have a very hard season. I feel that italy club will get the gold medal of champions league.


    Anyway, vakifbank has got enough champions and zhuting got enough mvps during last two seasons. Considering this year's squad, I hope they can get one gold medal this season.

    I think brazil and usa will still dominate this tournament every year. China uses world grand prix now vnl as practise ground for young players every year. European top teams must consider ech into account.


    You have chance to play vnl every year. However, ech is organized once every two years. WCH, world cup, olympic is organized once every four years. The priority is obviously clear to every top team which fights for a gold medal in big tournament. The big tournament deicdes the ranking in FIVB!:teach:

    I can understand why turkish fans are so exciting about their team. It is the best result that their senior team get till now. Here is the record of wgp from 2014-2017.


    2014: Brazil, Japan, Russia
    2015: USA,Russia,Brail
    2016: Braizl ,USA, Netherlands
    2017: Brazil, Italy,Seriba

    USA deserves the champion in this year's vnl. The real A-team, and all players are healthy and playing in this tournament! China beats brazil with 3:0 is a surprise for me. Anyway brazil made mistakes and lost to turkey. It is their own fault! :teach:
    Turkey young players really make big surprise towards these top teams! I think italy will be a big surprise in wch 2018! :teach:

    I believe the final will be between usa vs brazil. brazil has bigger chance to be the champion. Winning fivb grand prix is their tradition! :teach:


    For my point of view, serbia plays well against usa~~~~ they are using two new outside hitter who are far away from the level of miha and malesevic. Serbia will still be the strongest team in WCH2018.


    For China vs brazil, Langping turns the match to training match again. It is great choice to train young players in this match. The ball distribution is totally different from the one vs netherlands and she did not free zhuting's reception when the important moment came. And she gives lots of chance to different young players.

    How is it giving up if both Drussyla and Brankica got injured and are unable to play?

    I think if the small injury happens during the world championship,I believe they will continue to play. It is good for them to have rest and recover before the world championship~~~the most important one. That is why I think they give up the vnl~~ :win:

    China will be stupid if they would send their A team to Germany. They are in the finals and due to travel distance (which they would have done for the first time in the VNL) and time difference when they need to travel back to China for the finals. So it does make sense to rest the players.

    It is true. And it is bad news for italy~~~ and good news for The Netherlands~~~~ :lol:

    According to current performance, I think netherlands can win over turkey. Then, group of final 6 in vnl: China,Serbia,netherlands for one group; Usa, brazil, turkey is another group! :teach:


    I bet usa will be the champion in vnl ,because they play with the compelete roster and no injury~~~ :teach:

    It is just the regular season now. The NO.1 of regular season does not guarantee the final champion in the play-off phase. China, Serbia, brazil haven't show all of their cards yet.....


    it seems they have the same strategy till now. The most promising gold winning teams~~~ :teach:
