Modena had to do something but I don't think this will do much to help them in this position or give them the long term boost they need in this position. He is not much better than Bartosz Bednorz who was playing well.
They need a Elite player OH there next year

Re: @Suisse
I agree with you. How he receive and attack is the difference. Anyway, Modena will not win any medal.

Tillie won't help at all. The problems for Modena started when Christenson got injured. Missing one great setter along with one great outside hitter is too deep hole to compete with Perugia, Trentino, and Lube. Modena will be happy if they get 4th this year. If they want to compete with the best next year, they will need one 1st class outside hitter. Maybe Sander or Anderson.

Being the best receiving team in the superlega and then blaming their failure at reception seems iffy to me. Most likely they just want to buy someone for the sake of buying a new player. I don't think that Tillie will have great deal in Modena. Unless they are using 2 receivers to free up one extra spiker, I don't see how Tillie can strength the roster. Even with great defensive and reception skill, as the data have pointed out, they don't need an extra receiver. They need a more efficient spiker.

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply

WC 2019 W: Netherlands surprisingly sweep Brazil on Balkestein’s birthday, China wreck Russia

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply
