Macedonia v Albania 9/5/2017

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!

We just got dominated in possession 58% to 42% to Macedonia. Let that sink in folks. But it's not really surprising considering we had a midfield pairing of Kukeli and Lila with Azdren Fucking Llalaku on the wings.

I'm really amazed how a guy like Lila continues to get inserted in the starting lineups while Xhaka, Abrashi and Memushaj are on the bench. There is some nepotism going on here. Bushi, Jupi, Bogdani, or whoever is forcing their boy Lila to get a big role in the match.

I thought our backline (Hysaj, Mavraj and Ajeti) played very well today. They made many key stops and blocks. Alioski began to tear us apart at the end of the match but that's nothing they can do about it either. Hysaj was our only offensive threat in the first half.

I thought Basha did a great job coming in the second half, probably the best performance I've seen for him in an Albanian shirt. Was a calming presence, was able to help keep possession and did a good job positioning himself defensively when we were caught off guard on the counter. Memushaj wasn't a bad sub either.

I don't know what to say about Azdren Llallaku. I don't want to know how he got himself in a starting role for Albania. He's like a poor man's Gashi. Throw anyone else out there Latifi, Grezda or Lenjani. Furthermore, was Panucci banking on Hyka playing like Messi out there?

IDK what to say. If we get dominated in possession to Macedonia we are gonna get embarrassed against Spain. I can see them scoring 4+ on us. Asensio isn't gonna miss those long range shots like Pandev did, Isco is gonna walk around our midfield..
That penalty was bullcrap. We should have won, but Macedonia played much better. Take our defence away, and we're complete horseshit.

We need Xhaka badly in midfield.

That's the crazy part as well. Also, if Sadiku doesn't miss that sitter.

And yes Xhaka would be a major upgrade over Lila. Xhaka has said that he wants to play for the NT again and that he's ready. Maybe Panucci is being a d1ck because he wants to show his authority.

It just baffles me as Memushaj is probably our best midfielder gets benched for a guy who's a spot starter for an average MLS team and for a guy who plays for a village club in Greece. Not to mention we have a professional pitbull in Abrashi who is everything Lila wished to aspire to be as a footballer player.

We also stopped actively recruiting for new players. The few first few years under Di Biasi we saw a crazy amount of call ups of random players, eventually Di Biasi found a core that he could compete with. Panucci needs to do the same. It's a shame we were too late for Alioski and Bardhi. Alioski would be perfect for our team and Bardhi would be pulling the strings in the middle.

We should have just hired an Albanian coach like Josa. He knows all the players, can speak the language, can play attacking football. He's the one who brought Skenderbeu from losing to APOEL 3-0 or whatever, to qualifying for Europa League and beating Sporting 3-1.

Panucci is already getting tiring and he's only been here 2 games. I don't see anything positive about this dude. Duka is an absolute fucking retard for hiring him just because he's Italian. What an idiot. He's a poor man's De Biasi.
