What about only 2 player from same country rule. If all rumors are true they would have Carlini-VJP-Frantti, right?
Yes if all rumor are true then they will have 3 Americans... there were rumors about that 2 player same country rule being cancelled, interest to see whether it will happen in the next season

Omoruyi to Busto or Bergamo, Ungureanu have another year of contract but could leave.
If Ungureanu leave, they are interested in Piva (Not Gardini or Nervini from previous news, Gardini in Perugia, Nervini in Chieri) and Zanette.
Sofia Monza has an offer from Perugia.
Omoruyi, G.Gennari, Frosini, in volleybergamo1991.
Loda, Cagnin in Pinerolo.
S : G.Gennari, Turla
OH : M.Mackenzie, Omoruyi, Lanier,
OP : Frosini,
MB : Butigan, Graziani,
Lorrayna and Stufi to Bergamo?
IMO With the squad they have this year, CL group stage exit and not reaching final in italian league is not a good sign for Lavarini future in Novara at all. They probably have ambitious goal this season...
What’s with the rumor of Maja leaving Eczacibasi before her contract ends?
It is from voleybolmagazin so don't trust that completely I think if that is true it definitely will be Maja choice but not from the club side.
Vallefoglia with more names: they are talking with Carraro (S) to be backup for Hancock and Barbero (L) for Sirressi
Did Carraro start for Le Cannet this season? She should be a good back up setter for Vallefoglia.
I think their source is voleybolmagazin. They shared that today. As we all know Voleybolmagazin isnt very reliable.
OTOH it might be true. Who can they get to replace her tho? They should aim for a local setter obv. Too bad Naz is moving to THY
Wasn't aware they are quoting voleybolmagazin But if that is true, it will be interesting to see who they aim for, not many local setter are available also. Or will they consider promote Elif as starter?
It's the longlist of 29 players that will be reduced to a smaller roster later. No surprising names, except maybe Van der Mark who already announced she would return for the NT.
Gil Ferrer Cuttino returns as assistant coach, a role he had under Guidetti and Morrison before.
So painful to not see De Kruijf and Belien on the list
Yes they definitely lack of some experience on the middle. It will be great if either one of them are willing to play... But I understand their decision and hope for their best!
Baijens and Timmerman pair should be try more and consider Lohuis form is not that good recently, I can see them become the starting MB pair.
Guess the only surprise is H.Jasper not even getting a invitation? (I know injury affect her performance this season)
Hoping to see Van Aalen get more opportunities, and will be interest to see how Knollema perform in NT.
NT Roster is out!
OH: Grothues, Buijs, Savelkoel, M.Jasper, Daalderop, Knollema, Boonstra, Vos
MB: Lohuis, Polder, Timmerman, De Zwart, Korevaar, Baijens, Stuut
OPP: Plak (OH also), Scholten, Van Der Mark, De Haan, Dambrink
S: Dijkema, Bongaerts, Van Aalen, Klein Lankhorst, Lyklema
L: Schoot, Knip, Reesink, Brokking
I think Nika will start, but as shown in Novara this year, she will need a good back-up/alternate with her, cause her performance can still be unstable in some matches. Bajema is a good option for that and I agree both them will improve under Guidetti.
