How can Serbia play at home with a squad like this? No respect for the fans that buy tickets.

This competition is just to close to the end of the club season. I hate seeing teams play without their best players. It needs to start at the end of june, then have a slight break in august, when it's not an Olympic year and have the big championship in september. Way better schedule..

No reason for them to do anything different if they are already qualified for like 5 next editions of the Nations League :wall: Fans bought tickets, federations got their money, everyone's happy  (except the fans :( )


My favourite Volleyball position: LIBERO. You ask why? Look here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyIOarNAONk

Brazil playing very well with Fernando. Everyone thinks he's horrible, but I can see an evolution in him.

This tournament is a complete joke. Not just because of the b teams, but mostly because everyone plays like they don't give two shits. 

 

Nothing really matters, this doesn't qualify for anything, it's just a bother amid preparation for the real qualifiers which are in 2 months, ranking points are laughable, it's 15 games just to make the finals, the main leagues finished like 2 days ago...

 

I miss the old World League of the 90s/early 00s :cry: almost all teams cared, B teams were rare and the title had prestige.

I get the idea that they want all the big teams to play each other. Have more matches, no small groups, no playing the same teams 4 times like in the past. For me it's fairer this way. 

 

But then the no relegation rule is just pure BS. Just make the last 2 teams drop, no matter who they are. With 16 teams, the biggest nations will never be in last either way. Also fix the schedule, like i said in a couple of posts. If you want to make the teams play even more serious, give quotas to the Olympics from the VNL. Make a cumulative table of the 3 editions between OG and the top 2 teams earn a spot. There are ways to make this thing not look like a throw-away competition. 

 

PS. Good first game for us and a nice win. Didn't watch it, because it was in the middle of the night here, but from the clips i saw, we played with enjoyment. Great performance by Uchikov and with the return of Sokolov this summer, we can have options in attack.
