Barbolini: "It was a positive season"

1491 0

Igor Gorgonzola Novara lost the final of the Serie A1 but their coach assessed the season as positive.


Igor Gorgonzola Novar  finished season 2017/2018 with two trophies: Italian Cup and Italian Supercup. 

"Congratulations to our opponents, who deserved the Scudetto. Personally, I think it was a positive season, even if closed with the regret of a lost final. At the beginning of the year, we had set ourselves the goal to get to the top of all competitions and we managed to win two trophies and to play a Scudetto final, missing the Champions League Final Four. We have a bitter taste in the mouth for race three, which I believe has reversed the inertia of the series " said coach Massimo Barbolini.

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
