CS Arcada Galați conquered the Romanian Men’s Volleyball Championship for the first time ever.


CS Arcada Galați became the Romanian Men’s Volleyball champions for the first time in the club history. By defeating CSA Steaua București by a 3-0 (25-19, 25-16, 25-17) in Round 10, the last round of the Top 6 in the 2018/19 Campionatul National Divizia A1 masculin, CS Arcada Galați secured the national title.

Since there are no playoffs in the Romanian top division, CS Arcada Galați kept a two-point advantage in the standings compared to the second-placed ACS Volei Municipal Zalău (71-69), who also achieved a win (3-1 vs. CS Dinamo București) in the last round.

CS Arcada Galați were close to winning the title last season but finished the second-placed at the end of the regular season, only one point behind Tricolorul LMV Ploiești who became champions and then withdrew from participating in the 2018/19 Romanian top-flight due to financial difficulties.

Croatian Ivan Raić top-scored for CS Arcada Galați in the match after which they claimed the championship with 17 points. The Puerto Rican libero Arnel Cabrera made 85% positive reception (13 digs, 1 error, 31% excellent).

2018/19 Campionatul National Divizia A1 masculin – Round 10 (last round of Top 6):

CSA Steaua București - CS Arcada Galați 0-3 (19-25, 16-25, 17-25)

SCM “U” Craiova – CSM București 3-0 (25-8, 25-16, 25-18)

ACS Volei Municipal Zalău - CS Dinamo București 3-1 (25-16, 29-31, 25-18, 25-19)

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...
