I don't quite understand the arrangement of schedule. The teams don't play the same round at the same time. There are always teams with less or more matches.
That's true, the new one is top volley srl. Which has privileged relationship with Conegliano.
Not really. Egonu signed with DAO Sport, the same agency for Giannelli, Piano, and Juantorena.
Is Juliet Lohuis still injured?
How is the situation of Marie Schölzel?
They will stream every game. U need a VPN
OMG. It seems they have the rights of all major FIVB tournaments this year.
The live broadcasting is good. However, the reply will be interrupted by ads several times.

Unfortunately, they don't have VBL rights anymore.
He got the best libero awards three times in a row
I’m going to die.
He didn’t deserve the last 2 awards but was given
Verbov should have gotten the awards. However, the awards were "balanced" to Grebennikov
Novara will not have any match in the next two weeks. Good for them to relax a bit and to recover.
Can't they find someone at Stocznia Szczecin to become their defensive OH?
I don't think Leal was that bad but they need someone better than Massari to stabilize their reception.
The option right now is to sign Kovar back, at least for this season.
I would say Leal's performance is not good at all, especially at reception. Massari can only help on reception for 3 rotations per set. That's all. Most of the time he needs to do the passing.
Yes . I’m afraid this will be Leal. Juantorena is too important because of foreign rule
If Lube only has one-year contract with Leal, I think they won't renew with him after this season
I think after today one will be out together with Medei and Cormio .
Maybe Bruno +Medei will be out for Stoychev
If Lube would have won the gold, Medei could have secured his position. Now it's hard to say.
The whole team is built by Cormio. Therefore, he needs to take part of the responsibility. However, if he stays, Stoychev won't be the coach of Lube. Juantorena doesn't like Stoychev, either.
The only possibility is to sign someone new at the moment. They can't dump Bruno now.
Awww I feel bad for Sokolov. He probably misses Christenson. Who ever accept the sale of Bruno to Lube is looking for a job right now. I hope.
Balaso did well in my opinion and leveled with Grebenikkov for some moments in the match. I think his transfer to Lube is still meaningful in my opinion.
Grebennikov is definitely better than Balaso. He can cover more area and make more digs. Balaso has been improving, but there is still a long way to go for him to become a top-level libero
Even if Buijs didn't play any match in Challenge Cup?
I just check the rules. According to CEV competitions regulation:
“The Player licence can be included in only one CEV collective licence (CL, CEV Cup or Challenge Cup). A Player licence may be removed from one CEV collective licence in order to be included in another one as follows:
a) At any time, when the Player never played a match with the previous club,
b) No later than the start of the 1/4 finals of the CEV Cup and Challenge Cup or 1/4 finals of the CEV CL; when there is an emergency, medical or exceptional reason which is approved by the CEV office. Only one Player licence may be
removed. The new Player shall come from a different CEV competition and a fee be paid.”
Therefore, there is possibility for Buijs to play CL if she transfers to Conegliano. But it’s definitely impossible for Grothues.
He probably doesn't mind paying more to break some existing contract, like for example Anne Buijs' one with Monza (there were rumors Monza wanted to cut her due to her injury)?
Since Monza competes in the challenge cup, Anne Buijs cannot play CL if she transfers to Conegliano. They need to transfer a player who is not registered in any of the european cups.
The challenge system or the video replay for serve in or out looks off. I guess the video replay is the mistake. I swear I saw some after image in the replay.
The TV replay doesn't show the correct image. When the ball fully touches the floor, it is pressed. In the images they show, the balls are mostly spherical. It's either before or after fully touching the floor.
Kazan had 5 service errors in set 5. That's too much!
Fakel's blocking was good, expecially when the ball was out of system on Kazan's side.
Agree... compared to the beginning of the season they are better. I agree he connection is a bit off - but its quite hard to have that connection with Bruno - he struggles to have that connection with his own national team players - I think he was kind of spoiled by playing with Ngapeth who can create points from nowhere. That's generally how he sets everyone now. Christensen can also be as inconsistent though... What the team really need is a good libero who can cover more area you are right. When Bruno has a consistent ball he is more effective.
Christensen is definitely inconsistent, especially at crucial moments. Hope the connection between Bruno and the attackers will work better.
A good libero can help them a lot. Their reception is the first issue. It's shaky. However, in this season, we can only expect Balaso to improve.
