That penalty was bullcrap. We should have won, but Macedonia played much better. Take our defence away, and we're complete horseshit.artan wrote: ↑Wed Sep 06, 2017 3:21 amWe 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..
We need Xhaka badly in midfield.
