I don't even think the manager is making the selections any more. I think the FSHF, mainly Bushi and Bulku, are deciding who gets called up. It's why you see so many weird selections and the same rejects getting called up (cough Andi Lila cough).

I think the FSHF have stopped going after diaspora players altogether. They only go after the easy pickings now, the kind of diaspora players that are complete scrubs like Bujar Lika and that dude from Scotland.

Edi reja has called up some absolute scrubs like dermaku ramadani telushi trashi players who panucci even stopped calling..Take in that Kosovo is getting hadergjonaj along with all the other better kosovar prospects and it’s obvious that our future looks very depressing

Finally a competent coach.

Bulku is a god amongst men. He finishes his legendary streak with 100% win ratio, and 0 goals conceded. That's the best record out of any national team coach in the history of football.

Can someone photoshop Bulku's face on a Dark Knight poster saying "He's the hero we deserve, but not the one we need right now"?

Edy Reja kind of looks like Martin Landau

Considering the names that were about to get the job , i think Reja is the best option. He’ll play De Biasi style with 4 defenders and 3 midfielders which for us so far has been working. Never liked the 3 back line, so many blunders on the back line. We have no options upfront though. Probably he’ll be bringing some new blood aswell.

I think people are skeptical because Edi Reja is very old but honestly he's under contract until the end of the Euro cycle so it really doesn't matter. We've never had a coach of his prestige. In addition, this team has been so undisciplined making so many blunders and errors that I think a coach like Reja could fix. We needed to do a complete opposite after hiring a coach with no experience in Panucci. Plus this guy has the Lazio connection.

Arianit Ferati, Shabani, Zeqiri all still uncapped talents we can make a play for, especially with the new coach.
Albania fans are negative about everything, because we expect so much. One fluke qualification got our hopes up.
And no I don't blame Panucci. The pressure surrounding this job is massive and I wouldn't expect a manager with less than 5 yrs exp. to be able to handle it. The expectations of both the FSHF and fans are too high for the current playing squad. This new manager seems up to the task at hand though.

Albanian fans are exaggerating on the criticism for Edi Reja.

Yeah, he's older than dirt and that's risky and make no mistake that he's easily one of the best coaches Albania has ever had on PAPER. Just watching his press conference today you can sense his authority and leadership. He's a true coach not like that clown Pannucci. As long as he fixes some holes in defense and the players play harder then it won't be so bad.

There is such a negative energy around the NT and a lot of it is bullshit.People are talking shit by default. Even the new stadium is being criticized even though it's going be one of the best in the region. Not even countries like Croatia and Serbia have a stadium like this.

Lemme guess you're gonna say something like Rashica didn't impress against Luexmbourg 3 years ago as why he didn't get capped as your next argument.

And Roshi is becoming overrated. I see journalists labeling him as a savior for us when he comes back from injury. There were stretches where he played bad as well and we all called for his head.
Don't get me wrong. I think De Biasi made a big mistake by not bringing Rashica in. Even though he's much better in club than NT, considering how bad our attack is, he'd still be a huge asset and a definite starter.

It's just people think a player's quality is constant across teams, leagues, etc... while that's not true. While Roshi is a scrub for his club, given our small-team/anti-football style of play he punches way above his weight, while someone like Rashica just can't play anti-football. Some players thrive in open attacking environments, some thrive in anti-football settings.
