I don't think the quality will drop because there wasn't any to begin with. But I do think we lose the only team that can possibly make the Europa or Champions League in the next few years. I just don't see Kukesi being able to do it and Partizani have flopped for years, I doubt they get better. All match fixing aside Skenderbeu was the most professional team in the league (a bit of a oxymoron).
I still remember Flamurtari 'losing' something like 8-1 to that Irish team after they'd won 2-1 The home game and this was like a decade ago.

In a decade or so Albanian football has improved alot, IMO. And Skenderbeu played a big part in raising the bar for other clubs to spend and perform.
It improved and I think we know because of Skenderbeu's success in Europe and because other teams like Kukesi have been close to qualifying for the EL. It also seems that alot of European leagues are signing players from the Albanian superliga and that's pretty much all thanks to Skenderbeu's success in Europe. No way Genk would have signed someone like Abazaj for 750k euros from a village team 5 - 10 years ago.

But with Skenderbeu being demolished (rightfully so) is a set back for the league. They were the team everyone (mainly Kukesi and Partizan) was trying to catch and trying to improve to match their level. With Skenderbeu gone Kukesi is just gonna inherit it with out doing anything. The league is gonna be theirs and they don't have the quality/experience to qualify for Europe. Not to mention like almost Skenderbeu's entire starting lineup will be playing abroad so the league just pretty much lost their 11 best players lol.

Shame because Skenderbeu had a pretty good model going on for a team with a shit youth academy. Pretty much don't sack your coach after 10 games, develop a consistent core of players and have good scouts snatching up cheap players in Kosova & Albania. Why Superliga teams don't get this is beyond me. Their all to busy sacking their coaches after 10 games (shit coaches that get recycled team by team) and they waste their money on random Serbian/Nigerian scrubs or overrated Albanian Superliga rejects like Veliu.

^ Wasn't the match fixing in relation to that Northern Ireland team? That was the game they were winning and allowed a late goal on purpose for the betting odd? That game was won regardless fixing occurred or not.

Also Skenderbeu sold their striker James to some Azerbaijani team for 200k euros. Shehi also retired. Is Gavazaj the only player remaining from the starting lineup (he'll probably get sold too)? Relegation bound for Skenderbeu.
Shehi will coach Skenderbeu. Gavazaj is being scouted in Croatia. James went for 350k. Takaj will probably pocket the money and f*** off.

Should have been relegated 10 years ago before they fucked Dinamo over. We have a tendency as a people to gloss over the corruption that goes on behind the scenes just because Skenderbeu won a few games in Europe, without realizing how much damage the did to domestic league by making it noncompetitive for almost e decade. Just like everything else in that country the corruption has seized every facet of the daily and we simply don't give a f***. It's absolutely maddening.

I mean yes the coaches do have some merit but knowing what we know about Skenderbeu now (and we all knew this already) it does cast a shadow of doubt over their success. Same with the Kukesi coach who got canned right after winning the title last year.
We have some good coaches man. Succeeding in Albania is one thing, but doing so in Europe with teams that have a much higher budget is a completely different thing.
But dude they were fixing European games, it's why they got banned. Not because of the domestic match-fixing.

I didn't pin their success down to him. But he was massive in getting them a win over DZ. What Skenderbeu did going through so many rounds to the group stages was insane. You can't blame DZ not going through on Duka corrupting the league, etc...

As for Josa, didn't he win the cup in Kosova, right after winning the cup in Albania? Maybe he's not great at leagues, but in tournaments he's quite good.

Come on dude as great as Daja may be you can't pin Skenerbeu's success to him. Remember you were singing Josa's praises when he was at Skenderbeu. Where is he now?
