2 teams from Germany? That can`t happen as they are too weak. And only 2 from Turkey?? What a JOKE.

Re: @Troy you are right, that the distance in budget and strength is rather big behind the top three of Turkey, Russia and Italy before Germany, but Germany is supposed to be anyway the fourth best women's league in Europe, so the order is correct. That they can hardly finance the CL participation is a pity. And yes, Turkey should get one slot more to ensure participation of all four big Istanbul clubs in CL.

Polish Club didn't participate in CEV Cup and Challenge cup in recent 2 years. As the result, ranking of Polish League in this list fell sharply although the Polish League is actually regarded as the third strongest league in Europe.

Re: @Polemam
Do you happen to know why they declined to particIpate? The polish league (womens) seems to have lost ground compared to the other strong national championhips. Is there a shortage of money? Even a strong polish side like Rzeszow was soundly beaten by Alba Blaj in this year's CEVCL. Thanks!

Re: @Xhosa
What I'm saying is not a women but a men's league. It's fact that the biggest reason Polish club didn't recently participate in CEV Cup and Challenge cup was financial problem. If Polish clubs had competited in not only Champions League but also CEV Cup and Challenge cup, Polish men's league could be the third place in CEV ranking now.

The Polish league advanced 3 teams to the Playoff-12 each year in the Champions League. On the other hand Turkey, Belgium, France and Germany were not like that. So I'm certain that Polish men's league the third strongest league in Europe behind Russian and Italia league.

In men's volleyball, Poland league is apparently stronger than that of France, Belgium and Germany. I think the CEV ranking can't reflect exact power of each league.

Polish clubs must participate in CEV & Challenge cup for reclaiming their position in future.

TUR W: Ognejnovic to replace Nootsara in Fenerbahce!?

If Tomkom is kept for next season (though that seems unlikely in my opinion). Fenerbache should think of getting one of her younger NT member as a receiver/wing spiker back up. Even though they aren't as tall as their European counter part, they can receive well and attack too. I'm sure they would be cheaper to higher than most other European options or are they? lol...And they already have a connection with Nootsara, so maybe they can play some fast balls every now and then to score a few quick points too.
