List of players that are worthy of the NT for the upcoming Nations League and World Cup qualifiers and fit well in a 4-5-1 formation:

Goal: Strakosha Berisha Hoxha Selmani

Central Defense: Kumbulla Xhimshiti Veseli Dermaku Ismajli Mihaj

Left Back: all our current options suck, I'd just put Veseli or one of the other CB's here until someone emerges that is good

Right Back: Hysaj Balliu

Central Mid: Gjasula Bare Abrashi Selahi (still early but seems like a good player) Kace

Wings: Roshi Grezda Uzuni

Strikers: Sadiku Cikalleshi Manaj Kamberi Broja (last two have potential so are worth a shot)

Idk if it will happen but Mavraj and Memushaj should retire now, especially Mavraj.

The following players need to be dropped:

Ramadani, Qose, Trashi, Balaj, Lenjani, Xhaka (until he shows he can perform again)

We better hope that Italy is producing some Majkellanxhelos and Xhiovanis because a team from Albania would rival Luxembourg at best. Most Kosovars I suspect won't be choosing us from now.

Weren't you calling Gymcity a beast the other week?
No. I called him patriotic. He shows up sun or rain. That has very little to do with his capabilities.

I thought Bare was Xavi lite?
I like Bare but he has a shitton left to prove. I'm not going to call anyone a good player until they can at least be a starter in a top league.

Reality is we have good enough talent in defense (excluding the LB position) that is starting to get comfortable with each other.
Our defence is garbage. They've conceded goals almost every game. It took Andorra years to score 1 goal away from home. Our amazing defence let in 2. Their guys are semi-pro players.

Let's see what Kumbulla can muster up, but he's always fucking hurt.

Coulda shoulda woulda but if manaj had tapped in that sitter and strakosha not run out and punched ismajli in the face we could be easily sitting at 18 points heading into this france game...assuming we handled business against Andorra which would be probable if we had played the starters from kickoff
I have no hopes for Manaj though. Strakosha is the only "good" player we have.

Reality is we have good enough talent in defense (excluding the LB position) that is starting to get comfortable with each other. For the past couple of years our midfield has been a mess since the balance wasn't there as we were missing a calming presence like Kukeli but I think Gjasula might be that piece. Abrashi is still in form and Bare & Selahi seem like decent pieces for the future. The striker position is a big hole for us because if we can't get clinical finishing we won't qualify. This team doesn't have the offensive talent to create multiple chances and we all know that Balaj/Cikaleshi both need like 4 sitters to actually score a goal.

Almost all our players are trash tbh. Strakosha was the only one I had hopes for, and he single handedly fucked up our qualifying chances against Turkey with his blunder.

I wasn't saying Manaj is a great goal scorer. I am saying he's better than Olayinka. I will never rate someone who played for the most corrupt team in European history.
Skenderbeu was corrupt and sold games but when they needed to win they won. None of the UEFA cup playoffs was allegedly fixed , they beat the hell of our local teams . Then Olyianka was in his prime 20s and he has developed more in Belgium/Czech Rep.

Problem with Manaj is that he is not a goalscorer. He misses some easy chances that even Bakaj, Salihi and co could easily seal. He is good at holding up possession and create for others but doesn’t have that killer end finish you expect from a striker . He is young and athletically can help a lot by running, pressing and recovering ball and that’s a plus considering the competition he has with Balaj who only can score with headers or Cikalleshi that keeps shooting every ball even from midfield. Meanwhile everyone can keep dreaming Broja will become something big. I’m expecting a deep renew during next WC qualifiers.
