    Wow, Czech Pirate Party with over 10% in elections

    Really nice national anthem you have, Bulgaria

    Actually it is worth noting that the Leader of the ANO 2011 himself was a member of the communist party in 1980-90 and is even suspected of cooperations with KGB

    Also, tommorow are the elections in Czech Republic. The polls indicate ruling Social Democrat will lose power to the centrist ANO 2011. The Communist Party will come in third.

  7. Of course the Cracovia team finished the Champions League without a single point and with a stunning -23 goal difference

    Wow, i just looked at teams' squads for today's games and noticed Omonia Nicosia managed to hire the french opposite hitter Mory Sidibé, the Gold Medalist of Euro 2015 and World League 2015 Also Russian player Sergey Bagrey from Belogorie Belgorod and Zenit Kazan plays for Omonia this season

    Yeah, it was. Still, noone will care, neither the government or the parliamentary opposition. Their talks about sovereignity end where money is involved

    According to some media, Turkish president's security officers attacked Polish protesters against Erdogan's visit today in Warsaw.

    No - although it is kind of invisible, the scoring in play-off games and qualifications uses the same set of rules as in group matches, so 3-0 or 3-1 win gets 3 points, 3-2 win gets 2 point, 2-3 defeat gets one point, and 0-3 or 1-3 defeat gets 0 points. So a 3-0 win and then a 1-3 defeat would be interpreted as a draw, because each team would have won 3 points for the match they won. In such case, a special "golden set" is played to determine the winner. It plays like a regular tie-break, you have to score 15 points to win, having at least 2 points more than the opponent. -the rule is actually quite similar to the extra time in football. The same rule applies if you win 3-2 and then lose 2-3. So basically to qualify to the next round, a team has to win 3 sets in the first match, and then another 2 sets in the second leg.

    Only 4 teams qualify to the Group Stage, the rest of the places is taken by the teams from the best ranked leagues (http://www.volleyball.ch/fileadmin/user_uploads/manually_uploads_via_webtool/EC_RANKING.pdf). There is no rule that says the reigning champions are pre-qualified. If they won't end season in their National League that would guarantee them a place at least in the qualifying round, they will be absent from the Champions League.
  13. Volleyball 2017 Discussion Thread

    Yes, the winners of Round 2 advance to Round 3 and then winners of Round 3 qualify to the group stage where they will be drawn into 4 groups with 4 teams each.
  14. Volleyball 2017 Discussion Thread

    Well, we had round 1 in both men's and womens competition last year, so my guess this year there were too few teams to organise a proper first round (still why they call this round "round 2" instead of "round 1" is probably understable only to CEV officials " Also, just like in football, the competition format is open, so each european country can send at least one team, national champions or Cup winners to participate in the qualification, with better countries having more slots available and starting competition at later level. That is theory, the truth is nobody wants to compete for the ridiculous price of 50.000 Euro for the champions
