Israel v Albania 6/7/2017

With memories of the golden years (80's) of the albanian football still fresh on her mind, Albania is now attempting to recreate its strong football legacy. As young players start making their names abroad, the future is looking bright for Albanian football!

I think Berisha is a better goalkeeper than Strakosha(right now) but for some reason I feel more security with Strakosha in goal. Anyone feels the same way? Maybe it's because he seems fearless but for some reason I feel more confident with him in goal.
Yeah I feel the same and he's very young so he's only going to get better.

Said the same thing. Berisha is more experienced, but he has more brainfarts.

Strakosha needs to massively improve his sweeper/coming out of the box "Neuer" part of his goalkeeping though.

The only fucked up part of this game is that now there's a great chance we finish in 3rd in our group. The Albanian media will declare this campaign another massive success and De Biasi will brag about how brilliantly he got us the best possible result in a group with Spain and Italy (which will technically be true but a massive overstatement..)

With all that said, at least we seem to be reaching new bottoms every season. As in, the lowest standard of quality we expect goes slightly up each campaign..

3rd place would be a success and we shouldn't be "tanking" on purpose. Getting 4th or 5th place would harm our seeding. We need to make sure we're not in some group of death for the Euro qualification.

Good part is that we seemed to bottom out and now we should be trending upwards as a team. We need to find a new winger to replace Hyka.

Just finished watching both Kosova and Albania games. I'd take Valon Berisha , Kryeziu , Zeneli and Nuhiu from Kosova. The rest wouldn't be good enoughf for us, Turkey dominated every inch . Finally i remember why did we bench Ujkani , this guy succeeds in getting the opponent player 9/10 goal kicks. I don't get why should they get a Bosnian GK playing in some bosnian league with all the albanian gks avaiable. They could even naturalize one from Albania (Koliçi, Xhika, Moçka, Selmani) who would perfectly fit as subs for Ujkani or even better than him. The defense was bad. Vojvoda and Aliti were debutants so to a certain point they can justy themselves , hopefully they'll improve once they have more minutes with the team. Alushi and Pnishi should be the ones to get replaced . I caught them dozens of times out of the defensive line with Rahmani dictating the tempo while the fullbacks were following perfectly. The scheme doesn't fit the players Bunjaku put on his lineup. Albania's 5:4:1 has at least 3 dm's while Kosova has V.Berisha and Kryeziu that seem more AMs than Basha, Kukeli, Abrashi, Xhaka, Kaçe, Memushaj. Turkey played like they were playing a friendly. Avdiaj had so many chances , overrated. Rashica a shadow of himself.


Albania's game was expectable. Most of us did say we would win this one. What worries me is the fact that he keeps bringing up Lila. I understand Xhaka , if he was in bench he wouldn't get choosed ahead of the YESMAN. Both strikers were on form , Mavraj-Gjimshiti building sintony between them althrough i believe Mavraj won't be part of the team when Euro qualifiers start. Man of the match for me is Hysaj, outstanding this time!

I think we won this match despite DB being our coach not because of him. DB was doing his best to f*** things up with his subs. I mean the first two goals were two shots from outside of the box, almost nothing to do with tactics. In fact our counterattacks were horrendous until Hysaj stepped in. Defensively Strakosha saved our asses countless times, although I'll give him DB a pass since our defenders are shit atm.

I'll give him credit for starting Strakosha and Sadiku, and playing Hysaj further up. I honestly thought we'd get burned with Hysaj that far up, but Israel threatened very little. Definitely should not play like this vs. Spain and Italy though.

Agree that we won despite GDB. Hysaj played back the entire game idk what u talking about him playing "up". He just ran up and helped. If Sadiku wasn't such a good shooter who knows how this match would go. We are lucky to have him.

f*** you haters!

Turkish kebab referee, we lose 0-3 at home. Any other guy, we win 3-0 away.

Turks filthy race without honour.
