Got a chance to watch this on the weekend. My two cents:

Berisha - Ehhh. Had 1 amazing save from a FK that was a sure thing. Nothing else.
Hysaj - Defending inside the penalty box is just bad. Everywhere else he was ok.
Mavraj - Bad.
Djim - Worse. His reckless tackles instigated the shit show once more.
Veseli - Wasn't even paying attention to him. N/A
Lilaj - MOTM. Calm, collected, made almost 0 mistakes. Needs to be a starter.
Ndoj - Great first touch, but was mostly invisible. Should definitely be called up, but not a starter yet.
Ramadani - Shouldn't be anywhere near the NT
Qaka - Had 1-2 good dribbles when he came on, then he disappeared.
Roshi - Low football IQ but necessary in a 4 man defence to drive the ball forward quickly.
Lenjani - A poor man's Roshi. And Roshi is already a poor man.
Manaj - Stereotypical hit and miss player.

Subs:

Ajeti - Wtf is he doing in DM? Terrible.
Memolla - Same as Qaka. Had some nice dribbles when he came on, and disappeared.
Balaj - Gave an assist and that's it.
Cikalleshi - Looks comfortable on the ball, and does absolutely nothing.

The defence was purely catastrophic. Can't even blame Panucci that much. They were that bad. I don't like the 3-5-2 but if our defenders are this shit, we have no choice. We need Xhaka/Abrashi desperately to cover ground. f*** even Lila would have been an improvement here. We still haven't brushed aside the "need 20 chances to score 1 goal" syndrome. That needs to be fixed ASAP.

Nuk e kuptoj pse vazhdoni me i ra ne qafe Panuccit? Cfare faji ka i shkreti qe skuadra "model" e kampionatit u denua dhe Duka po perdor ekipet kombetare per biznesin e tij.

I agree with this but I think a good reason is that the nt is missing a leader like Lorik Cana. A player who can motivate the team to give everything but is also very respected. Since Cana left us we been having problems. Even de biasi lost the team after Cana left and this might keep happening with every new coach unless maybe it’s besnik hasi or lorik Cana as coach. We’re a small team so we need that killer attitude and the motivation to go give everything that’s why I wouldn’t mind talking about Cana as a future coach. He has no experience but that motivation he brings us is way more valuable than any experience

I wanted him to commit to his line of thinking before the game and not afterwards to make excuses :)

Didnt know he was that tall. He stroke me as being a few inches shorter. Regardless, i dont think hes capable defensively and he may need another defensive anchor next to him. Might as well slot Hysaj in the midfield as he’s good at anticipating and marking.

Kukeli was underrated as his defensive positioning was good, allowed Xhaka and Abrashi to be pitbulls. We dont have anyone like that anymore. I think the criticism with Kukeli was because he would make very stupid passes that would lead to goals during the later stages of his NT career.

Good ball control, good enough passer and vision and decent at long range shots. He seems like a player that plays well parked in front of the backline and I don't think he seems comfortable further up the pitch. His defense is probably suspect.
I mean he's 1.81m lol. I'd say that's probably taller than the average CM, but if he's protecting the backline, he needs to have more muscle.

Kukeli was getting shitted on regularly by fans when he played but now you can see his value. He was the definition of solid.

Glad to see that was the case. See my description of him last game in the other thread.

But yeah, this team has no balance whatsoever. The midfield should be Xhaka/Abrashi and Lilaj/Kace. We need those "bulldogs" in midfield. And defensively it's a mess.

I still think the midfield needs a guy in the mold like Kukeli. Maybe Basha can be that guy but idk what's up with him. I thought Ndoj can be that guy but he seems a bit passive, not in a bad way but a player more comfortable in a offensive/possession system and more comfortable further up the pitch. He's not gonna get that on this squad lol.

The midfield will get better with Xhaka coming back and hopefully kace reinstated.
