Wow! After the great season Baijens is having, I expectex her to go to Italy or Turkey
I hoped Koslowski bribed her to stay with a NT starting spot.
Pia Kästner, Jazmine White, Indy Baijens, Anne Hölzig and Tutku Yüzgenç stay in Schwerin.
Besides that also Dambrink has a contract for next season.
What a waste, I wanted Baijens in Italy. If Lohuis can be succes in Italy, she can for sure.
Schwerin already have not high ceiling with these OPPs. And if Ruddins/Alsmaier go..
Sarah van Aalen to Vakıfbank
(confirmed ones again)
After a season of starting every match, I hope she don't mind spending a lot of time on bench next year. They needed Vargas to make foreign setter work in the league. Maybe she can come on double sub with Alexia.
Vargas officially turned Vakıfbank down.
Good for her, but seemed crucial for Vakifbank to get her for a foreign setter to work out.
back to Novara?
Lavarini didn't talk to Nika for 2 weeks when she told him she would leave to Vakifbank. Anyway, i would love to see her back in Italy, and in Novara.
Correction: Nika hasn't played in 2,5 weeks. She lacks match rhythm.
I think She is gone leave Imoco, She is not playing so much this season She still wants to prove herself and She is gone earn extra money in Eczacibasi right before retiremant.
Fahr, Lubian and Squarcini are MB trio for long term in Imoco. Especially Fahr and Lubian.
On the contrary, Robin has been playing much more than anyone expected with the foreigner limits this season. Santarelli keeps finding a way to get her on the court, even now when Fahr returned healthy, Robin is still playing.
People coming for Nika's throat whenever she doesn't attack 50%. (nevermind that nobody on the team was playing great)
Both previous two CL matches (against Potsdam and Novara) Nika got MVP award, where were y'all then?
If you look at the score sheet for today' s match, Nika had the best receiving stats of both teams (52% pos), including the liberos, despite most receptions on her team.
I agree her attack was worse than other matches in past month, but same counts for every player today.
Erfurt - Münster 2:3 (25:17 25:21 20:25 22:25 9:15)
MVP: Vera Mulder / Juliane Schröder
Today Vera Mulder won the battle of the young Dutch opposites with 26 pts and 55% in attack vs Iris Scholten (24 pts, 47%)
Let's see if Dambrink can perform better than these two in second half of season before she gets invite for NT over them
I watched Shanghai to see Bricio performance, but very impressed with the locals. Other OH Zhong Hui is amazing. Also like the setter Xu and Gao Yi.
Aren't Xu and Zhong Hui better than some setter and OH playing for Chinese NT this summer.
Schwerin saved 3 MP's to go to a 5th set.
Baijens is going full Thaisa with 20 points (8 blocks), next highest scorer is Holzig with 13.
I hope some people notice this so she can go to better team next season.
Daalderop was expected to bê a not great receiver in the beggining of the Season. But she isnt great on attack either and she and Bajema are offensive OH imo. Só is Derya. In fact a defensive OH is needed in VB. Zehra was a ghost.
In defense of Daalderop (and also Bajema). they have to fit in a role in Vakifbank that doesn't match their qualities. Daalderop barely gets any sets so it's hard to get in attacking rhythm. Then more than half the sets she gets are out of system with Haak in front of her and De Gennaro waiting crosscourt.
She isn't going to perform like a libero in the backrow (yet).
Also Daalderop had only 20 receptions. Gabi and Ayca had 52. So it's not just her fault if Vakif was not running a balanced offense.
And the most funniest thing is that Fahr is sitting on the bench. Sorry to De Krujif She is still performing on high level butttt Lubian and Fahr are future MB duo and both of them are crazy good already.
What's funny about this?
Robin is starting player for years and played a great tournament and still you have to throw digs at her. Congeliano don't need enemies with you as their fan.
Does Daalderop have any injury? She got zero time on court last few matches...
In hindsight, at this point I wish she had stayed in Novara who now have OH problem, starting next to Bosetti, under Lavarini.
Sariyer 9-18 > 25-22 4th set
Indy is back.
ShouldCould have been MVP all last 3 matches.
Nika, pls, go back to italy.
Even vasileva was better in Vakıf.
Daalderop was perfect in the match against FB a few days ago. Best receiver of the team with most attempts, and 61% in attack.
She struggles with consistency from match to match, but should improve in that under Guidetti.
Arina is a superstar and deserved that set. but can't win the match by herself.
Daalderop played very well in attack and reception.
Happy about Drca getting best setter.
