ohhhhh......interesting. I'll update when I catch updated news on when the actual team name comes out.
sitenoise which team has red white and blue jersey colors?
I read some article that state the thai flag color is the team she(Pornpun) will likely be part of.
So I guess Denso and NEC are likely out from being mainly red....
seems Pornpun(THA setter) is JVL bound for next season with confirmation, but for which team, hasn't been announce yet. Wonder which JVL teams is in need of a setter?
Congrats Supreme! Khonkaen did well too, but just wasn't enough.
After Ajcharaporn's performance during final 4, I think a lot more Japanese teams will want her services. Hope she plays in JVL next season.
Supreme vs khonkaen live
korat vs khonkaen
Korat vs Supreme
3bb vs Khonkaen
I enjoy this match. Lots of long rallies and blocking from both teams. However, 3bb's offense was just too much for khonnaen's defense to handle.
Ajcharaporn is working hard. I think she has scored 25+ points in every match so far. The first game of the final 4, she scored 30 points and I think the latest game vs khonkaen, she made 35 points.
I never really liked Wipawee and Watchareeya much, but both stepped up their game. Though on NT level, while Watchareeya has showed she can play at high level from time to time. Wipawee on the other hand, hasn't shown she has improved much. Maybe she will get more chance to show herself after all the veterans finally retired 🤔
Khonkaen, I have to applaud Kannika. She may only be 1.68-1.70 cm, but she puts in the work and is a good OH. It's too bad she isn't 5-10 more cms.
But all those great plays aren't nothing without both teams wonderful liberos.
Korat is using two setters on court. The last time that happened, was at wch 18, when malika was injured and both pornpun and tomkom both came on.
I assume Wanitchaya is injured? Since she hasn't been on court since the first set from the first game.
I also notice aside from Supreme, the other 3 teams seems not ready or not really wanting to play much. I initially thought khonkaen might easily be taking the title, but seem Supreme will be a tough nut to crack.
I couldn't find any stats posted yet, but I'm from the USA and is able to watch the true4U YouTube channel during live and replays afterward.
feel bad for Nootsara and Chatchu-on. The other players were just so so and couldn't help much. I wonder did wanitchaya get injured? She was doing fine, then got taken out.
maybe try TVA's YouTube channel when its expected to go live?
Last night, I saw some youth games that's current, going on live. Maybe they'll also broadcast the final 4 live too?
In my anticipation of the final 4, here is a YT video HL of Nootsara and Chatchu-On during the regular round. She does wonders at 178cm with Tomkom's settings. Now if only she was 8-10 more cms, she be even more beasty.
Sadly, Jung Ho-Young has not lived up to the South Korean media hype place on her many years ago. She struggled in her first season in the league. Initially, she wanted to play as an outside hitter but her reception is very lacking. From what I have recall reading, JHY will concentrate on playing as a middle blocker this season.
since she lacks reception, she could play as a non receiving OH like what china does with Zhu Ting, Wang Yie Mei and Ling Ying Ying. Though she would have to be good at terminating balls if she was to play such roles. Good luck to her mb position, maybe if she becomes good enough, we'll see her on the NT in the future.
Sorry, I have to get this off my chest but am I the only one who thinks Pyo Seung Joo is a horrible player? Full transparency, after watching all her plays on the National team, I couldn't help but cringe every attack she's made. She just doesn't have the height, the speed, the brains to be on the National team. So frustrating!
Like you, I'm not impressed with her performance, but I think she's tall enough...isn't she 182 cm?
I think you are talking about Jung Ho-Young? She was drafted as the first player into KGC, namu wiki and kovo state that she is still 190cm and tbh I am not sure how she performed last season.
The Kovo website is telling me that she played in 20 matches, 38 sets and scored 20 points.
The rookie of the season was Park Hyeon-Ju from Heungkuk Life, for comparison she played in 25 games, 82 sets and scored 103 points.
But since I didnt watch the matches I cant say whether Jung Ho-Young was used more as a MB or on the Left, in the kgc athlete registration it is noted that she will play MB from now on.
That's all I found for now but I'm sure theloneracer knows more about it
thanks, i'll check her out and yeah, i think that's her name.
I think I read it in one of the past KVL threads about a HS girl that is dubbed the next KYK. What is her name and how has she been growing?
I like to see how she progress and develop as she matures.
that's unfortunate, but make sense too. SEA games 30th is hosted next year by Vietnam, so guess they want to keep their main player as safe as possible till then. And they will get a new cuban coach soon. I could imagine how dangerous 4T can become under a good coach and training course.
Japan salaries are closely guarded secrets. No idea about caps.
volleybox is sort of like a wiki, most often without any sources, but everything is supposed to be approved by an Admin. Transfers are scrutinized more carefully. It's also a very Euro-centric site so Asian stuff is a little loose. Those rumors have no sources (not even a gossip page), so if they get approved by a Euro, I'll delete them until I see sources.
Thai fans often get a little jumpy with rumors. They also sometimes give awards to Thai players just for kicks just like at Wikipedia
volleybox also just added rumors of Pimpichaya at Hisamitsu, Chatchu-on at Denso and back at PFU, and Jarasporn Bundasak at JT.
Agreed about the thai fans lol...funny and amusing, but just shows their great love for the sport and players, still though
Jarasaporn could work for JT if it eventually comes true.
I thought Denso had 4T?
