    Thailand Volleyball Association just announced the roster for Asian OQ. It's basically the same list as the one from SEAGames.


    1. Wilavan Apinyapong

    2. Tichakorn Boonlert

    3. Pornpun Guedpard

    4. Malika Kanthong

    5. Pimpichaya Kokram

    6. Ajcharaporn Kongyot

    7. Chatchuon Moksri

    8. Watchareeya Nuanjam

    9. Thatdao Nuekjang

    10. Piyanuch Pannoy

    11. Yupa Sanitklang

    12. Onuma Sittirak

    13. Pluemjit Thinkaow

    14. Nootsara Tomkom

    MKJ any news of Hattaya's current status?


    on a different note, from the recent SEA games, Thatdao is back to doing her slides again, YAY! this will give her a more diverse attacking option other than just in front of the setter. And another thing I notice about when she attacks a quick in front of the setter, if she gets a ball a bit further from the net, she doesn't get blocked as often, but if it's rather close to the net, she gets blocked more easily and doesn't get a good swing either.....

    From what I heard, Hattaya is still recovering. She won’t be playing in OQ and isn’t listed in any team in VTL.


    Yes. Thatdao’s back doing her thing. She used to do the slides a lot before the injury. It’s a good sign :)

    They just announced the roster for VTL2020 this year and there’s a couple interesting points.


    - Nootsara and Acharaporn are not on the list of any teams. Acharaporn with the above reason. For Nootsara, either she’s resting in the first leg or she’s going aboard.


    - For the big teams, only KhonKaen doesn’t hire any foreigners. Even 3BB gets 2 South American players this season. Both MB though which is interesting as I think what they really need is a setter ^^”


    - Supreme made an offer to Thompson. We all know she’s going to Fenerbahçe this season so it’s obvious she declined the offer. However, the fact that they have that kind of money and willing to hire this level of players is a good sign for VTL (I think).

    - Dear (the girl with 19x cm) is on the list of players this year. So we can see how she’s now if you’re interested :)

    Hello, please can someone explain me why Supreme Chonburi didn't insert Ajcharaporn Kongyot in the list for 1st part of Thai League? They wrote something on their facebook page, but translation with google translate is very poor.

    They said her condition is not 100% recovered. They also expect her to be used in the OQ match this January. So they want to use the first leg period as a rehabilitation period for her to gain her strength back and recover as it’s better for her in long term. They said this happens a lot for NT team players at the beginning of the season.


    I think it’s also because they exceed the number of NT quota with PJ, Wilavan, and Piyanuch on the list. If Acharaporn comes back in 2nd leg, one of them has to go.

    I think they rerun the match in TV in the following day.
    Anyone has a link between THA and PHI with English commentators?


    I would feel bad if the PHI doesn’t reach the podium this year. After yesterday performance, I think they deserved it. If they did that well with VIE, they might win that 5-set match.

    It was a fun match especially in set 3.

    I love Filipino fans so much. They seem to enjoy every points the team got and really are supportive of their NT.


    The THA does have problem with serve receiving and that makes it's hard for Nootsara to work her magic.

    They need to fix it fast before the OQ in January. The Korean's serves are much deadlier than this.

    Im not sure when South Korea and Thailand face Bulgaria and Azerbaijan in the last 2 years but based on VNL results in 2018 SK was Beaten by Belgium but they were able to take down Russia and Germany. I rest my case with Thailand since they are not performing well in the past 2 years but they can make surprise outings.

    I don’t want to get involved in this ridiculous discussion. Just want to add some stats here.


    THA won over Azerbaijan in WCH2018 and won over Bulgaria, Germany, Russia (not team A, I guess), Serbia (also not team A) in VNL2019. They lost to other European countries though.


    For the OQ, (and this is just my opinion) there’re regulations in place. Life is unfair. Just follow the damn regulations and move on.

    What happened to Jarasaporn? She disappeared from NT scene after 2017 WGP. She was a good blocker and had a good side attack as well. .....I would take her over Watchareeya if she was still part of the NT.

    I don’t know what happened to her. Jarasporn is out of NT team A for quite sometime now. She’s a part of team B that went to Taiwan invitation in September though.

    Basically the best team they have right now.

    I think this will be the same (or very close) to the roster for OQ this January.

    how I wish Thailand would send a mix squad of their u23 and the 3bb youth to this event instead.

    These topic has been discussed in Thai webboard for years. The thing is this event is managed by SAT not TVA and they always request the best team for the event.


    It’s not just winning gold medal. Winning SEA games brings more support to the team in terms of budget, training facilities, and other stuff. So they can’t lose this.


    You may see mix squad but you won’t see 3BB youth team in this event. Ever.


    For this year, they will use sea games as a preparation matches for the OQ in January. This means full Asean Grand Prix squad + Nootsara and Ajcharaporn :S
