Sada Cruzeiro recorded the second win in as many games in the 2019/20 Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


It’s still too early to draw any conclusions but it seems that Sada Cruzeiro definitely show signs of being ready to regain the Superliga Masculina title. In Round 2 at home, the team coached by Marcelo Méndez defeated top division newcomers América Vôlei (merged with Montes Claros Vôlei) in a duel of the two sides from the same state, Minas Gerais: 3-0 (25-11, 25-18, 25-16). This win allowed Cruzeiro to spend the night on the top of the Superliga charts.

The Argentine expert gave the chance to some of the backups to start the match. The prospect middle blocker Cledenilson Batista “Pingo” took this opportunity well and led Cruzeiro with 12 points, including 5 kill blocks.

First things first, I know you will delete this coment, because this is a critic to WOV.. Sada doesn’t win big a long time... They lost Supercopa to Taubaté like they were juvenile team. Then they win first two games against low level teams and you write they are “ready to regain Superliga title”???? What kind of joke writer are you???

Not only did WOV not delete your comment (3 days after you posted it) but I found it on the home page of the site...
And if you only wanted to pass along a criticism, you should have left your last sentence out and sounded less insulting.

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
