    My prince Semeniuk is still as humble and charming as ever:rose:Can’t wait to watch him playing with Ishikawa next season!


    Both Semeniuk and Plotnytskyi are good, humble players. I like them too.


    The season with Travica, Atanasijevic, Sole, Colaci, Leon in the team was the worst. They all can be trouble makers on court when needed. Leon used to be OK when he's with Kazan. Leon gradually lost his patience and after no success in Superlega, 5 seasons in a row. The pressure of highest salary and criticism can easily change a person. Fortunately, he finally got Superlega champion before he left. And the last game was also one of his highlights.

    I'm so happy Leon is leaving. I can't stand anymore his attitude.


    Creating unnecessary drama, being irritating or aggressive on court is a tradition for Perugia, not just one player.

    That's why lots of volley fans don't like Perugia even if Sirci had a deep pocket that can build up a strong roster in Superlega.

    Fernando is the main reason that Monza could make into final this season. Sbertoli's unstablity was magnified in clutch time as always. He has two more weeks to adjust himself before the CL final.

    Halkbank is a good proof of that bringing world-class players in a team doesn't result in a world-class team🤦


    It reminds me of Eczacibasi (W) a few years ago (2016-17 maybe?). They have all star players on every position, but did not win any important champion in Turkey league that season (except WCC before season). I still remembered a regular match of Eczacibasi vs Vakifbank. They led 2:0, and 20:10 in set 3, but unbelievably lost to Vakif at 2:3. Since then, Eczacibasi lost the momentum.

    Perugia vs Piacenza is a good match. What a come back! What happened to Leon? He'd not been on court for a month. His injury is getting worse? Sirci will be upset if Leon could not recover before the club champion match.

    Ben Tara was solid in recent games, including super cup final. But I won't make a conclusion that he's a top OPP until this Superlega season is finished. I am not sure if Ben Tara could play for Poland NT. I don't think Ben Tara could replace Kaczmarek as a starter OPP right away. Ben Tara is 27-year-old, and Kaczmarek is 29. When Ben Tara is qualified to play for Poland NT, maybe he's close to 30?


    Kaczmarek is not stable, and could be irritating on court sometimes, but he can score at clutch time. I had watched a few games of Poland NT in VNL 2023, ECH 2023 and OQT 2024. Leon could carry the team as a core player, but Kaczmarek made crucial points a lot of times. Maybe Leon drew the attention of the defense, so Kaczmarek got a chance to score at clutch time. I don't know. Check how many set points or match points Kaczmarek nailed, and the data did not lie.

    The current Brazil NT:


    Setter: Bruno + Fernando

    OPP: Alan + Darlan

    OH: Lucarelli + Honorato

    MB: Lucas + Flavio

    L: Thales


    But the bench is not deep. Lucarelli is bothered by injury from time to time. Honorato is not a top level OH in Brazil NT. I don't know where Douglas is. He's much better than Honorato as a starter. Isac should be back as another MB for Paris 2024.
