TUR W: Dominican sisters Martinez and Gaila in Turkish League

3278 0

Aydın Büyükşehir Belediyespor who will play in the Turkish Sultanlar Ligi in the 2018/2019 season have hired big reinforcements.

  

It seems that Aydın signed contracts with Brayelin Elizabeth Martinez and her sister Jineiry Martinez but also with Gaila Gonzalez Lopez. This information is still not confirmed by the club.

Brayelin is an attacker and last season she played in Pomi Casalmaggiore. Her young sister is a middle blocker and for Jineiry this will be a new experience in Europe since that she already played in France.

Gaila Gonzalez Lopez is an opposite and in the Women’s National Team of the Dominican Republic, she is one of the main scorers. Last season she played for Cristo Rey and for her this will be the first season abroad. 

But the Bulgarian attacker that will for sure represents the new team in the best Turkish league is Desislava Nikolova. Last season she played for Maritsa Plovdiv who were the winners of the Bulgarian championship. She is not unknown in Turkey, she played for Halkbank in 2013/2014 and Seramikasn in 2016/2017.

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

I agree with almost all you said. But the thing with grebennikov is much more difficult. Grebennikov is French and Lube desperately needed one italian libero to make space for Leal. They chose good, but this guy played before for Padova (if I am not wrong) without any pressure to win. Reply

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

Unfortunately, this was expected. I was surprised this hasn't happened after last season and 5 lost finals. It's always a coach that pays the price since it is easier to fire a coach vs the whole team.

It was the same in Perugia at the beginning of last season, when Atanasijevic was injured and didn't play so Perugia lost few games in the row. Sirci immediately fired Kovac, who made that team and save them previous season and brought Bernardi. Coincidentally Atanasijevic recovered at the same time and Perugia started winning. And glory goes to Bernardi :)

I love Lube but they simply have too many good players on the team and they need a coach who is a good psychologist. After losing 6 finals, they have a serious problem.

After their game vs Zenit, when they saved 8 match points, I expected them to walk over Trentino in finals. But they were nowhere to be found.
Lubre fired Christensen to bring Bruno, which was the mistake in my opinion. Christensen was the soul of that team after playing so many years for Lube.

They did an unfair thing to Sada by bringing Simon who was under contract with Sada. They brought Leal as well. He is a great player but he doesn't fit into already established attack formation with Sokolov as 1st attack option and Juantorena as 2nd.

Juantorena is 33 so he should have been replaced with Leal who is 29 if that is a long-term strategy.

But what hurt Lube the most is the fact they lost Grebennikov, who is the best libero in the world. Not sure what happened here, but Lube couldn't find a proper replacement and that is where their defense has a problem.

POL M: The Italian international to join Budowlani Lodz?

Rather, she can play Chemik, because Abbondazza is an Italian trainer. Reply
