This is really something: the only team without a foreigner vs a team with one of the top foreigners in the world go at it in the Final tonight. Defense vs Offense. 

According from what I read in the newspapers from Dascalu and Nowak, Bacau club has shwn little respect towards foreign players. I hope this player from Peru can have a little more luck.

Es las dos francesas que han decidas de salir del club de Bacau.

@Volleybox To tell you the truth, I hadn't really thought about it. It was just a thought because I've always wanted to add a prediction section on our site (http://block-out.fr/) and I think that the predictions on the volleybox.net site are perfect, hence my remark about a widget that would make the link! I will think about it more carefully.

@Sudo nice idea. But how it should looks?

Only matches for next 7 days should be presented? What about presenting results of last round and game classification?

A prediction widget would be fantastic. We could include it on our site.

I'm sorry, i'm fotgot to login and my message about transfer of Kseniia Smirnova was labeled as "guest".

Boys ! I read some articles, and it seemed it good way for them to be banned, no ? It is hardcore but well, when you see the entire doping system implemented and everyone was aware, even top officials, it seems legit for me. They were already entirely banned for 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics.

@Sherlock Boys or Girls? It's going to be a sticky wicket to decide how, or who will replace them, but I don't think Russia will all be banned. Not sure why. It just seems hardcore

I hope it will happen so France can have one more place in the qualifying tournament. ^^

I think the best players list is wrong. Brankica Mihajlović and Tatiana Kosheleva were awarded the Best Outside Hitters of the tournament, but they were not the best receivers. The best receiver, according to the FIVB World Cup 2015 Website, was Sarina Koga.

Cannes went from 8-7 to 25-7 is the 3rd set today. Unbelievable streak from 17 points in a row.

Four teams from Premier Conference are 2 matches behind, and two teams from Star Conference are 1 match behind--due to cancelled matches opening weekend.

The five cancelled matches have been rescheduled for the end of the season:

Sat 4 Jan 2020

12:00 Denso v Hisamitsu

14:00 Toray v Saitama

15:00 NEC v Okayama
 

Sun 5 2020

12:00 Denso v Okayama

15:00 Hisamitsu v NEC

Error in the score of the match, Eczacibasi won 3-2, not Fenerbahce.

Here's the letter the girls wrote in response to the response (google translated):

STATEMENT

In connection with the article that appeared in Gazeta Wyborcza on November 6, 2019 and further interviews on this women's Polish national team in volleyball, we would like to inform you that:

1. After the end of the national team the team, excluding Magdalena Stysiak and Maria Stenzel, selected the team's representatives, ie Malwina Smarzek-Godek and JoannaWołsz, to talk with representatives of the Polish Volleyball Federation.

2. On September 9, 2019 Appointed representatives met with President Kasprzyk and presented problems arising in the team asking for reactions, thus informing that the team did not see any further possibility of cooperation with Nawrocki's coach. The delegation was not considered credible by President Kasprzyk, which prompted us to issue a letter confirming the compliance of the rest of the team with the representatives.

3. The above-mentioned letter was challenged by President Kasprzyk in terms of the authenticity of the signatures contained therein. The document contains nothing but confirmation of the coherence of the whole team's sentences with signatures. The above-mentioned document is the only one submitted by the team to PZPS. The information provided by the media regarding the alleged letter asking for the dismissal of Nawrocki's coach is false and groundless.

4. On October 17, 2019. there was a meeting of the players of the Chemist Police playing in the Polish national team with President Kasprzyk, at which President Kasprzyk declared that for the qualifications January Coach Nawrocki will remain as the first coach of the National Team, while after qualifications conversations will be resumed and attempts will be made to solve the problem. In the light of the promise made by the President, we considered that a compromise had been accepted.

5. On November 6, 2019 Information denied to the President's earlier assurances (i.e. information about the extension of the contract with Coach Nawrocki until 2022) without any talks with the team.

It is true that President Kasprzyk often urged players to talk openly and inform him about problems in the team. After an attempt, open conversation and presentation of problems, the team met with a lack of understanding on the part of the President, and in addition, the information provided to the President went to the media. A dignified representation of the country and the image of the National Team have always been the team's priority and the talks with President Kasprzyk were aimed at solving the problem. For the sake of good representation, the team tried to solve the problem without involving the media and bystanders, including agents. The multiplication of articles related to this case, and first of all the interview of President Kasprzyk revealing the details of the conversations he had undertaken earlier, caused great indignation on the team. In the face of all allegations, often false, the team feels hurt and cheated. Publicizing the internal problems of representation in the press in the opinion of players is unacceptable and may have a negative impact on the upcoming qualifications

The alleged duplicative accusation of reluctance or jealousy of the team towards Magdalena Stysiak is a nasty insinuation aimed at diverting attention from other problems. In earlier conversations of the team with Coach Nawrocki (held in Spała), the topic of the alleged conflict of Magdalena Stysiak was discussed for the first time. The team unanimously emphasized that Magdalena is a desirable player in the Polish team and that each of the girls believes in her major contribution to achieving the goals. At the end of the national season a meeting was held among the players themselves. The case was resolved and Magdalena Stysiak herself revealed the reasons for the alleged dispute. The conversation resulted in manipulations by Coach Nawrocki, who tried to turn the player against the rest of the team with comments about the alleged jealousy or dislike of the team towards her person. As it has already been mentioned above, the team is happy about Magda's presence in the national team and is counting on common successes, and the article in Gazeta Wyborcza considers it another scandalous attempt to disrupt Magdalena, moreover, the team.

During the meetings held with President Kasprzyk, we informed about the following reasons for our position:

1. The team tried to talk to Coach Nawrocki about current problems during the training camps, as well as previous staff seasons, but each conversation was met with negative reception and downplaying. Most players did not receive even one individual conversation during the 5-month staffing season.

2. There is no contact between staff seasons. The coach and training staff did not have any personal or even telephone contact with players and clubs. The team found out about everything, including calling, or a few days before the grouping began. An additional problem was the complete absence of Coach Nawrocki during league matches (domestic and foreign), which resulted in a total lack of dialogue. After we sent a letter to PZPS, the coach suddenly began to appear at matches in Poland.

3. Underestimating the health of the players and showing dissatisfaction in the event of injury. Often, putting the result above the health of the players.

4. Lowering the team's sense of value, self-confidence and individual players. Lowering the team's aspirations and potential. Lack of psychological and mental leadership of the team.

5. Lack of honesty and repetitive bad statements about their players, often also in conversations with other volleyball players.

6. Errors in the conduct of matches, lack of constructive tips, fits of fury that badly affected the team and offensive statements indicating disrespect.

7. Coach Nawrocki's acceptance of the unprofessional behavior of one of the staff members (close, close relations with one of the players). Allowing immoral behavior, while the Trainer does not react to the problem being reported by competitors.

8. Lack of a professional training staff and conducting classes incompetent trainers to train players of the National Team.

9. Slandering a staff member by Coach Nawrocki and the rest of the training staff in the presence of players, thereby introducing an uncomfortable working atmosphere.

The allegations related to such a late reaction on the part of the team were caused by care for the good of the team and the desire to meet the expectations of the supporters who were support for us in this difficult HR season. However, the team would like to emphasize that the fact of the problem was reported the day after the end of the European Championships in Turkey, i.e. on September 9, 2019. According to the team, the problem was intentionally postponed so that now, in accordance with an article by Gazeta Wyborcza, blame us just before qualifying for the Olympic Games. The article that appeared in Gazeta Wyborcza on November 6, 2019 is biased and strikes at the dignity and good name of the team. Most of the information given in it is false. The team is outraged by the light in which it was presented. The team, when contacting PZPS, counted on constructive talks to solve the problem, and not on publicizing the matter in a way that defamed the team.

What a wild weird story this is 

@Volleybox The scary thing for them is that they are the same team, mostly NT players. They have #FabianaClaudino  now instead of #FolukeAkinradewo ... certainly not  a downgrade

#HisamitsuSprings has lost more matches so far this season (3of5) than they did in the last two seasons combined (2/41)

I sorta glad the match against FENERBAHÇE wasn't streamed. It would have been painful to watch. [25-11, 25-17, 25-10] Reception 12%; Attack 18%. Super ouch. I'm sure they'll do better next week against Vakıfbank. gogo AGY

3–2 wins are good for character building. I think it was my team's 3-2 over Turkey in the U20 Tournament that kicked them down their winning path We got this. gogo AGY

The streets in Kawasaki, near Tokyo, flooded after Typhoon Hagibis made landfall Saturday. Helicopters plucked people from their flooded homes on Sunday as rescue efforts went into full force in wide areas of Japan.

Up to 33 people have died, and at least 19 people are missing.

Good job for Vitra with 27 points for Boskovic. But I think that we it will be well-established, Vakifbank will be very hard to beat with its incredible offensive armada : Haak, Karakurt, Gabi, Zehra and Milena. Great match anyway, I hope we will have more of those classic this season.
