I think that Bulgaria is favorite number 1. My predictions for the semis Bulgaria- Germany and Serbia- Italy:)

Yeah. I don't know the exact situation, but for me rather Italy is a favorite. Maybe I am wrong... But it is all known that Bulgaria and Italy are the strongest teams.

Italy and Bulgaria are favorites, but Germany is really strong too. Serbia and Finland are unpredictable

Well, I cheer for Serbia, but I don't think they have big chances here. Though they always fight till the end, so who knows. But the lack of Miljkovic could be too much for this team.

I would wait before saying Italy is one of the favorites... I didn't like what I saw against Finland today. Especially reception,Bari did mistakes on the easiest balls. I hope it wasn't ""his"" day,but most of all because of him Italy couldn't play at its levels. But I would say the whole team was a little bit "switched-off". We'll see what they'll do against Germany,which is maybe the strongest team in our pool.

Phoenix - why didn't Berutto take Giovi? IMHO better than Bari, who has never amazed me...

@Aelinn I really don't know,Giovi played well in the world cup in Japan (as I remember he was MVP against Brazil!!!) and I expected Berruto would have brought him to Sofia.. Today I saw a really questionable Bari,in trouble even with float serves..

Sure, marchst, and for your sake I hope this was only one bad day. But I'm generally not impressed by Bari. I didn't see the whole game today, so I can't express my opinion about his play in this particular game. Just asked what happened to Giovi, cause I thought you would be better informed :)

To tell the truth,I haven't followed him much in this season,but I saw him in the World Cup and he played quite well.. I have nothing against Bari,in fact I wrote before that I hope it wasn't just his day

i think the biggest italian's problem is Travica....

Agreed, Andrea, definitely agreed... What's the reason behind Berutto's complete resignation from Vermiglio? Age, difficult temper or what? He surely plays better than Travica...
AndreaTNIT 91 3

Vermiglio has a difficult temperament .. and perhaps can not handle it .. Mastrangelo and together with other strong personalities. TRavica is a good player when you have perfect reception.... but when he has to dig from 3,4,5 meter ... he is not accurate ...

Bratoev did great job today.. I hope Niki Nikolov's injury isn't something serious..

I'm surprised by Bratoev (the setter), he showed a big grow up today and now I see that he can be part of the future.

Well, Bratoev's game tonight helped me realize something - Zhekov really sucks...I attended all matches today and there are few things I have to say:
First of all Grozer is f'n beast...Germany are very strong and well organized team.Hope to see them in the finals.
"Suomi"(aka Finland) fans really surprised me.Despite not having big success in this sport they are just awesome.Well done!Great game which Italy did not deserved to win.
Great day for all valleyball fans in Bulgaria which finished with good win for our team.Cant wait for the game with Serbia!

Aleksiev had a good game tonight...also he and Kaziyski had very attractive spikes in the 3rd meter.

I remember Vermiglio had discussion with Berruto. Unfortunately this coach has a strong temperament as well and firstly is the one who makes choice about players to get in his team, so clearly Vermiglio is out of his mind because of that. Otherwise it'd be weird not to let join the nt the setter of last Champions' League winners, wouldn't it?
About Italy's match vs Finland, I think we underrated our opponent a bit, and after that first won set we thought to take an easy 3-0 win. That's noticeable imho from drastic lowering in attention to our reception and defense phase stating from the 2nd. Match result totally lies.
@AndreaTN I think at this level almost every setter could make good job with ++ reception and good spikers. Other thing is rather to do so when your mates are just scared even by float serves just like Bari (the libero!!). I'm not able to say how much mid-difficulty floating serves nearly HIT him and our backwards players. Well,playing a whole game in these condition forces your setter to do a super work (and I agree Travica's not very skilled in that)
Sure it is we must change many things if we want chances to win against this Germany.

AndreaTN - i have to disagree 1st and 2nd set also were very good! few nice long rally, atomic attacks, many blocks

Germany so far presents good shape. i'm curious how they will do with stronger opponents like Italy or Bulgaria

I was most impressed with Kaziyski's reception in match Bulgaria-Slovenia, he was also great in spiking and scored very difficult balls, looks like he is gaining form again:)

Congrats, Bulgaria! Though I have to say I'm a little sad as Serbia is one of my favourite teams ;-( Sounds like it was an amazing game for the Bulgarian NT. I didn't have a chance to watch it. Are there any stats somewhere?

I've looked on the stats and... Can someone tell me what happened to Stankovic? They guy ended the game with no points at all... Did he play the whole match?
Bravo Todorov in block! Amazing performance in that element (I'm judging by stats, so have mercy on me :P). Not so good in spike, though.

Terrible game by Serbia ... bulgarians didn't show anything special except Todorov and we just took advantage of the opponent's mistakes. Todorov amazing ... 3 sets - 10 blocks and he was like a wall ... Think again why Stankovic didn't score a point.

Well, still, Nightfox, Stankovic is a good MB and I would expect that even with Todorov apparently having his day in blocking Dragan would finish a few spikes ;) Must have really played terribly. Plus, did Todorov score all 10 blocks on Serbian MBs? :)
spiridonchetoBG 140 5

Aelinn no but serbians didn't use the MB because of bad reception and when they used some of them the ball was saved or Todorov bloked them.Only Podrascanin scores 2 points from atack I thing...
PP Btw both teams almost didn't play with MB our team had 7 atacks(3 points) serbian team 15 atacks(2 points).

Bulgaria played very sure. We were terrible I do not now what is the reason. I think that Bulgaria has very good chances in London, because they players are very long time together and they mature. Except that, they have great players which is important thing for success:)

With Kaziyski, Bratoev, Sokolov, Todorov, Nikky Nikolov, Vlado Nikolov, Yosivof and Salparov, the Bularian team will be in the final this sunday. Who will be your rival? Germany, Italy, Serbia or maybe Spain?

Bulgaria to London!

I love the fact that Salparov is back...he had 90 and something% positive reception and brings stability in defense...he is also an energetic bomb :)

bulgaria italy in final and the bulgarians win 100%..as for starovic, i think is just too soft for an opposite perhaps that's why he sits on bench :)

@tomdoki He had an injury and he's still not in the best form. He slowly gains it back. That's why Atanasijevic plays as opposite number 1.

@MasterOPuppets I add to your request about replay of that Grozer's atomic serve.
About final, me too I see Blugaria vs Italy but in a 50-50 chance. Bulgarians can rely on their fans and class of their leading players, Kaziyski and Nikolov, but Imho Italy has a more uniform skill distribution whithin the players, and if they're not in a bad day like against Finland, they can fight on equal terms. It would be definitely an awesome match.
Go Italy!

I like the italian team, but with lots of modifications. I don't know why Savani doesn't play, maybe it's an injury, but Parodi in my opinion just sucks ( If i remember correctly, they lost the european championship to Serbia because of him, and the commentator said that Parodi was a parody of a player :D ). Also i think Fei doesn't deserve to play, because as a middle blocker Birareli is simply better and ofc, he can't take Mastrangelo's place. And the biggest mistake of the italian team is the setter position...Travica is good but I think Vermiglo was a genious. :)
