Modena had to do something but I don't think this will do much to help them in this position or give them the long term boost they need in this position. He is not much better than Bartosz Bednorz who was playing well.
They need a Elite player OH there next year

Re: @Suisse
I agree with you. How he receive and attack is the difference. Anyway, Modena will not win any medal.

Tillie won't help at all. The problems for Modena started when Christenson got injured. Missing one great setter along with one great outside hitter is too deep hole to compete with Perugia, Trentino, and Lube. Modena will be happy if they get 4th this year. If they want to compete with the best next year, they will need one 1st class outside hitter. Maybe Sander or Anderson.

Being the best receiving team in the superlega and then blaming their failure at reception seems iffy to me. Most likely they just want to buy someone for the sake of buying a new player. I don't think that Tillie will have great deal in Modena. Unless they are using 2 receivers to free up one extra spiker, I don't see how Tillie can strength the roster. Even with great defensive and reception skill, as the data have pointed out, they don't need an extra receiver. They need a more efficient spiker.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.
