It still makes no sense to put neither Belgium nor Slovenia in the first group.

Re: @former_player No they don’t belong because they weren’t invited and that has to mean something. NVL is uppon invitation tournament

Re: @Axe The decision who will be a member of World League should be based on quality and results, not a subjective invitation for reasons that have nothing to do with sports. Unfortunately, FIVB completely lost compass with their desire to experiment without any reason.

ITA M: Fantastic four ready to battle for Scudetto!

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply
