    Of this VNL 2022 roster Ding Xia, Yuan, and Gong are the only players left from the Rio 2016 squad. Zhu and Zhang are still recovering while everyone else has retired.


    I dont think so, unless CVA changed the rules and gave them the green light to do so. There's also the rumor of Vanjak joining which would make that a total of 5 foreigners if Dajana is also true.


    Pre-covid they had the 2+1 rule, 2 on the court and 1 on the bench. This past year they only allowed 1 foreigner on the court. CVA is unpredictable so idk how things are going to play out, I just hope they don't do players dirty again and leave them having to find a club last minute.

    Shenzhen announced that the head coach Bao Zhuang has renewed for next season. They also hired a Serbian assistant coach and trainer. But the big reveal was that they apparently signed two Serbian players. (maybe someone more familiar with Serbian news can add more to these rumors).

    Shenzhen coaching staff additions.

    Pusic is fluent in Chinese as his mother is from there.

    Yuan is very tall but is the height difference really that large compared to the others? 8|

    The first three players next to her are liberos followed by three setters. The other taller players, middle blockers and outside hitters are on the other end of the lineup (second slide on the post below). But yeah Yuan is a giant! :lol:

    Bulgaria's wide roster according to Chinese media. Couldn't find an official announcement so I had to translate it from Chinese, but please correct if wrong.


    S: Kitipova, Barakova, Shahpazova, Neykova, Slavcheva

    OPP: Zasheva, Malinova, Krasteva, Dudova

    OH: Vasileva, Yaneva, G. Dimitrova, Paskova, Milanova, Rachkovska, Yordanova, R. Vasileva

    MB: Vuchkova, M. Todorova, N. Dimitrova, Saykova, Usheva, Krivoshiyska

    L: Z. Todorova, Karabasheva

    Wang Yunlu as the other starting OH is a questionable choice. She has a heavy arm, but is not an efficient attacker and has weak reception. I remember her float serve used to cause the defense a lot of problems, but it can also be very error prone.


    Even though Diao Linyu worked under Cai Bin in Jiangsu I still think Ding Xia will be the starting setter. Her veteran experience will be valuable when getting the younger players adjusted at VNL. Between the two in the Chinese League Diao > Ding, but for international stage Ding > Diao.


    Hope Yao Di can recover and return for Asian Games/WCH.


    Libero I think Ni Feifan and Wang Weiyi will be alternating equally.

    I think that lineup was mainly a sparring test as seen in the video below at 0:35.


    EDIT: On the other side of the net it was,


    S: Ding Xia

    OPP: Chen Peiyan

    OH: Wang Yizhu, Wang Yifan

    MB: Yang Hanyu

    L: Xu Jianan


    Pinerolo is interested in Leah Edmond

    Can she even play a full season is what I'm wondering though?


    Last season of AU she didn't finish due to injury and this year might've been the same thing. Maybe she knows her body can't handle playing a lengthy high level pro season which is why she settles for a short play of AU (which even then seems like too much for her shoulder).

    I saw some memes but don't follow. What happened?

    Honestly there's A LOT going on to it. Depp is suing his ex-wife for defamation causing him to lose his career as a result of her over dramatizing domestic abuse claims.


    Depp by no means is perfect, but neither is she. Depp's party are saying that she contributed offenses that would also be considered abuse, physically she threw a bottle at him severing the tip of one of his fingers among other things. Psychological abuse causing him to return to drugs and alcohol. Depp said he was reliving the trauma he endured from his childhood when his mother would do the same to him, his siblings, and father.


    Heard's lawyers continues to share recording evidence of incidents showcasing abuse. People are speculating that she provoked him on purpose while he was under the influence in order to get a reaction hence her having all these videos and audio ready. She has audio of him vomiting in his sleep... The relationship seemed toxic from the get go and it seems both parties contributed abuse to one another. The only difference is that Depp's career was cancelled while she still continues to feature in movies.


    This trial should bring even more awareness that men can very well also be victims to abuse.
