RUS M: Verbov – „In the last three weeks, the team fell apart“

I really like this kind of questioning and Im pretty sure that it is part of the 'reason why' :)

knowing that, the issue is : how to recover that envy ?... And maybe the solution has begun to be drawn by losing these 2 (3) main titles ! I mean the new goal isn't keeping a title anymore but to conquer it.

#SuperFinalsBerlin M: Sokolov – “Is this dream come true? Absolutely“

Re: @Paolo
More titles He Win with SADA, and national team, so Bulgaria like a team is not very good like Brazil, as players and the club team SADA you know many years, with Leal in this team they don't have many competitors in South America. Only 1-2 Argentine teams like UPCN, Bolivar, but you know, they are not in the same level with SADA in good years...

In Europe, there is many good teams like Zenit Kazan, Lokomotiv Novosibirsk, Belgorod, Lube, Trento, Modena, and Polish team Reply
