Friedrichshafen, Germany, December 9, 2011. As they recently edged BERLIN Recycling Volleys in the last round of the Bundesliga, VfB FRIEDRICHSHAFEN sky-rocketed to the top of the charts that sum up all facts and figures since this competition was introduced back in 1974. Via this result the club from the Lake of Constance cruised past Leverkusen/Bayer Wuppertal/Titans with a total of 750’278 points amassed through 375 wins and 139 defeats in 28 years.


Since Stelian Moculescu started coaching the team back in 1997, the club has played a total of 343 matches in the Bundesliga – including the Playoffs – totaling 313 wins and only 33 losses.

Moculescu has hence a great ratio (90.35%): “This is not bad” says the Romanian-born head coach.


He still has got sweet memories from his debut: “That should have been against Fellbach. We lost the first set there and the atmosphere got icy in our old sports hall. Fortunately we turned the score around and won the game 3:1, so we had a happy end” he recalls.

 He still has some more memories to share: “Once we scored a 15-0 against Wuppertal that used to be one of our major competitors by that time. I remember we achieved the same as we played BERLIN and another time we stamped a 15-4. They did not score at all for at least 45 minutes”.

On Wednesday, as they crossed their ways in the Bundesliga, VfB delighted a home crowd of 2’800 fans by finishing it off with a 3:1 win (19-25, 25-19, 25-22, 32-30).

It was a sensational match for our supporters” says Brazilian spiker Idi. “We did never give up and that was the key for our success”.

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
