I think Italy with Zaytsev is one and without Zaytsev is another one . Italy loss its power without him . Without Zaytsev Italy turns to a OK team.

Zaytsev and Wallace are the 2 best OPP in the world, of course Italy is no the same without him. But still Italy has Gianelli $ Lanza.

Is this the most controversial point in 2018 CEV Champions League…? (VIDEO)

It's because at the end of the day: the video challenge system is still HUMAN controlled. Some people are just blind... or biased...

This is just another embarrassment for the sport of volleyball. Even with replay technology, they still somehow manage to mess things up.

And to make things worse, the referee had the nerve to give them a red card for outrage that was LEGITIMATE. Stubborn referee! Even if Lokomotiv will lose the match in the end, I'm sure they would have preferred that loss instead of being cheated out of a point. Reply

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.
