RUS M: Sergey Shlyapnikov has announced the roster of Russia... Where is Poletaev?

3237 1

The new head coach of Russia decided to call 21 players...


 

Sergey Shlyapnikov has announced the names of the players on which he will count for the 2017 World League tournament. As you can see below, there are no some well-known names such are Dmitriy Musersky, Maxim Mikhailov, Alexander Butko, Artem Volvich...

Still the biggest surprise is that there is no Viktor Poletaev on the list. One of the best young players in Europe was the top scorer of the 2016/17 Russian Championship Regular Season, still at the end of the season he suffered injury due to which he missed the start of the Playoffs.

Perhaps the injury is the reason Shlyapnikov decided not to call Poletaev...  

This is the roster of Russia:

Setters: Sergey Antipkin (Dinamo Moscow), Pavel Pankov (Kuzbass Kemerovo), Dmitry Kovalev (Ural Ufa)

Opposites: Konstantin Bakun (Dinamo Moscow), Maxim Zhigalov (Belogorie Belgorod), Alexander Chefranov (Gazprom Yugra), Alexander Kimerov (Fakel)

Outside-Hitters: Alexey Spiridonov (Enisey Krasnoyarsk), Egor Kliuka, Dmitry Volkov (Fakel), Dmitriy Ilinykh, Denis Biryukov (Dinamo Moscow), Egor Feoktistov (Ural Ufa)

Middle Blockers: Ilyas Kurkaev (Lokomotiv Novosibirsk), Vadim Likhosherstov Ilya Vlasov (Fakel), Dmitry Shcherbinin, Igor Filippov (Dinamo Moscow)

Libero: Valentin Krotkov (Zenit Kazan), Artem Zelenkov (Dinamo-LO), Roman Martynyuk (Belogorye Belgorod).

FIVB are testing new rules at WCH U23: Serve (VIDEO)

I honestly don't see the use of changing every time the rules. People at some point don't know anymore what the exact rules are, and at this time I'm talking about player, coaches, ... , people with much affection for the sport. People that don't know the sport, can't follow at all this evolution of rules. In consequence they lose interest in the sport and stop following it.

Also if this rule would apply, this will for many youth teams an issue to learn this kind of services, as they don't have the room behind the court as the professional player to learn this kind of service without landing in the court. I know courts where there's only 1 meter behind the service lines.

If we want the game to become more spectacular again, we should simply raise the hight of the net. People are becomming taller and taller and jumping higher and higher, the logical evolution would be to raise the net hight.

IT will impact the service presure and the attack presure, resulting in longer rally's.

Thanks just my personal opinion.

I wonder who has the same idea? Reply
