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

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

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
