EMS Taubaté Funvic have prepared several significant changes in the roster for the next season, according to the latest news from Brazil.

 

As Bruno Voloch reported in his blog, the Brazilian men’s volleyball championship Superliga side Taubaté will not be able to keep country’s national team opposite Wallace Souza after two seasons which he spent in the club.

One-time FIVB World Championship and two-time FIVB World League winner Leandro Vissotto, currently a member of Vôlei Renata (Campinas), is projected to replace Wallace in the next season. A 34-year-old player is the best scorer of 2017/18 Superliga regular season with 394 points.

In addition, Taubaté offered a two-year deal to Sesi-SP middle blocker Lucas Saatkamp „Lucão“ and aim to hire the highlight of Lebes Canoas this season, the opposite Aboubacar Neto „Abouba“.

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...
