Euro Volley 2019 (Inludes Estonia, not Croatia)

It seems like almost all of EE is taking part apart from...Croatia.

Russia are the best team apparently. They're at the top of pot one.

Estonia are in pot three, out of five pots.

Finland are in pot two.

Serbia, Poland and Italy are the other pot one teams.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Why the need to single out Croatia?

We don't care about sports like volleyball and rhythmic gymnastics.

tbh I am shocked that they don't have a presence there. It's commonly played on beaches which Croatia has the best of. It's beneficial in Volley to have tall people and all Yugo people are on average taller than most. Also it's kind of like tennis, handball which the Croats are good at.

No reason for them to not to have qualified. Tsk tsk, looks like they dropped the ball there

Yea you'd think they'd be there with their height and the volleyball tradition they have in the Balkans.

Ok, I made a few phone calls to rectify the situation.

Look for inevitable Gold within the next 2 years.

Crappy pay in terms of a career choice so we don't give a $hit... if you want me to be really honest.

Instead we prefer playing for and staring for huge football clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern, Juventus, Milan, Inter, Dinamo Zagreb, etc. The pay is great and the world wide fame is a bonus.

As for volleyballers, quick name one player without googling it. No one knows of them and no one gives a crap about them.

Those that can play football. Those that can't do volleyball, cricket, syncro swimming and rhytmic gymnastics.
