According to the Polish media, Trefl Gdańsk will enter the next season highly weakened.

 

Firstly, the speculations of a departure of Mika and Schulz from the club have appeared.  And, if it was not enough, names of the three more players that might leave Trefl at the end of the season were mentioned.

Allegedly, an outside hitter Artur Szalpuk, Canadian setter TJ Sanders, and U.S. middle blocker Daniel McDonnell are heading toward the exit doors of Trefl! Szalpuk will return to PGE Skra Bełchatów, while the new destination of the North American duo is still unknown.

But, not everything is black for the Gdańsk side. A prospect outside hitter Tomasz Fornal from Cerrad Czarni Radom is projected to replace Szalpuk, while experienced middle blocker Piotr Nowakowski will likely renew his contract.

Recall that Trefl had many difficulties with finances before the season.

What`s going on there? They are going so well this season and could end up winning it all. So why is everyone leaving?

Re: @Kaplan
They don't have as much money, as they want to have. Sponsors don't come to the club with big money like Lotos did. I'm surprised about this situation, but maybe Anastasi will find better replacements, who knows. About Fornal - he extended contract with Czarni Radom, so he don't come to Gdańsk

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...
