Hill choked again big time! Like every final match there is a big chance that her time will loss. I don't know why....
Where can we rewatch the matches pls? Any links pls
I find it weird Poulter started today. Any news on Carlini?
Sorry but carlini is having hard time connecting to her attackers than poulter.
I think poulter might be the 1st option.
Usa is more of fast play and poulter is doing that job more effectively than carlini. Thougj, carlini has better fd.
As I mentioned above, last year the VTV matches never made it outside VTV. The DAZN matches were the ones that found streams on youtube and livestream365.
I tried to subscribe to DAZN last year to no avail. It's Japan only. I told them I was a Japanese citizen working abroad and my daughter (which I don't have) was suffering from depression and an eating disorder because she couldn't watch her beloved NEC Red Rockets. They didn't care.
We'll just have to wait and see how things go. I'll be heartbroken if all I get to see is the VTV matches. They seem to be almost exclusively the least interesting matches of the night.
It's stressful looking for videos and live stream. If they want the league to be more popular outside japan, then put all the matches in vtv. If they want subscriptions then fans can pay if they really want to watch the game.
The problem is they only want it to be available in japan, which is weird because japan volleyball is very popular and many fans want to see their idols play and they can't because they don't have access.
Kurobe had the best receiving line in the league last year (Hisamitsu might have edged them out right at the end but for most of the year it was Kurobe). That was due to Rina Hiratani and Nanami Wasai, and their libero Banba. Hiratani retired and Wasai moved to PFU. Major blow to Kurobe. I've never seen Simone Lee before so I don't know what to expect from her. Most foreign OHs don't receive in Japan because, frankly, they suck at it compared to Japanese. Suelle Oliveira received for Himeji last year and was pretty good. She got targeted because Himeji's other receivers are top o' the line. Most Japanese OHs love to receive and attack. They do it all the time.
Simone Lee might give Kurobe a slight boost in scoring over last year but if she's going to receive it may result in a net negative. Only one match so far. We'll have to wait and see how things play out. I enjoyed her pipe attacks!
I dunno why Dindin didn't play. She may be a better wing than MB but Kurobe needs MB. They have two good OPs and a few decent OHs, but no real MBs.
On the other side of the net, I wonder why Ebata didn't play. What has happened to that girl's career? Nanami Wasai played instead of her. Maybe for reception. I have a good feeling about PFU this year. I was shocked by how much their setter has improved. Having Wasai and Sayaka Tsutsui on the receiving line probably helped. they've already won more games than they did last year!
I am a fan of USA, japan, china, well most of the country. Generally i am a volleyball fan.
I already saw Lee played in USNT last year she played inVNL and this year in norceca. She is not a steady passer, she even played as Opposite in norceca this year and became best scorer. The thing is they can't move her to opposite because kurobe has decent opposite too. But, does their opposite receive a ball? If yes then maybe make her an receiving opposite and let lee play as oh but not receiving the ball. Thought, it's agreement between lee and the coaches to improve her reception so she can step up as well in USNT.
Dindin can play both wing and mb. She got best opposite recently in Philippine league, but yeah i think they need middle blocker and the thing is dindin's training as mb was when she played in toray and that was few months ago!
Pfu might reserve ebata for more important matches. I think that's their game plan.
Anyone can post the link or video here imoco vs saugella pls.
Guangdong should have recruit more strong players if they want higher placement in club championship
Is this link for turkish league?
When will the season starts?
I have access now to vtv. But as i check the schedule most of matches will be live on dazn! Which means it will be hard to access live stream. Yeah?
Will there be any app or website where we can watch those matches that will be shown on dazn?
Ohhh kurobe, i thought they could win the match against pfu.
Lee is playing OH and she is receiving ball, i thought in japan no foreign player allowed to receive the ball because they are 1st option for offense. But lee needs to work on that department. Dingdin never had a chance to play too? I saw her highlight i think she is better in wing.
As exoected toyota won against jt marvelous. I wonder what will happen now to jt knowing that drews might join the team next week and other teams are now prepared same withu hitachi with h. Tapp.
Wait... So you saying, Hill, bartsch, tori and lower are TeamB? 😂
Just because they are playing against less strong team and they are now Team B?
So, if akinradewo, adams come back who will be team A and B and C?
I still believe kiraly has a purpose why carlini wasn't playing that much in world cup.
Coming olympics next yr. It's everyone ball game
Any link pls
Other articles mention that the contract was terminated by mutual agreement. As far as I know, the same thing happens with other players in recent time. I guess the Korean teams must have compensated the players so that they would agree to end their contract with the team.
Or maybe they are not satisfied with her performance (written in her contract) and injury issue is just a coverup.
3 days before the league start. Qill there be live strean in youtube just like last season?
Also any app or websites where we can watch outside japan?
Taylor Simpson? didn't she has lots of problems when she's with heungkuk before?
kinda surprised she's chosen
btw, korean system of 'getting rid' of foreign players right away when they suddenly got injured seems so cruel
but since they got paid a lot, ofc the club wants the good result
but still, so cruel!
Maybe because no other foreign players available at this moment. If not all, most of them are with their club teams already. So, there is shortage or limited player to be selected. Maybe taylor was the last option.
If they want to go home early and join their club team. Drop the game, lose and go home after 3 matches. 😂 But of course it won't happen because this is team A of USA and they should win this match to end the NT season with high note!
If they will let Hill rest again this tournament then remove her from the roster and bring next tournament someone who can play.
Not to mention the lesser time to gel with the team and the system. Just let Karsta play OPP already lol.
It will be unfair as well for karsta because she has club team too in italy waiting for her.
Wondering how important is this tournament? I am 100% sure lot of american players that doesn't have contract yet with the club. They should have revisit their data and check who are still available.
Do you have confirmation on Hannah Tapp?
No confirmation yet from the club hitachi rivale but there are articles from different volleyball blog. Her club in brazil released her contract.
