TUR W: VakıfBank and Eczacıbaşı extend their brutal winning streaks

Sonja Newcombe's transfer to Eczacibasi was hopeless. She is very ineffective in attack. In the match against PTT Spor didn't finish 6 balls in attack. For 2 sets she didn't score any points.

ITA M: De Cecco has contract with Lube in his hands, Bruno going in opposite direction?

Re: @Direktor De Cecco doesn't have hitters like Juantorean, Leal, Simon. Leon and Atanasijevic are not enough. Rychlicki is already a good opposite, will only grow in the next few years to become 1st class.
I am not sure if you noticed that two Perugia starters (Lanza and Podrascanin) were benched in the 4th set. Lube is just too good, they are the best in the world right now.

Re: @former_player
Agree on that, they could try getting Toniutti or Marouf, better choices in my opinion that De Cecco. Lube won a few days ago because of De Cecco's bad decisions, Perugia attackers were in much better mood that Lube's. Reply
