I hate this 3-5-2, I hope we switch to 4-3-3 very soon. It’s been awful to have 2 strikers starting anyways, better support And help develop Broja, Kamberi and have them fight for that spot for the future. We need to go back to that De Biasi era formation, but with more attacking intent
4:3:3 was Pannuci’s lineup. De Biasi played 4:5:1 against Luxembourg aswell, Roshi, Grezda and Lenjani were young and on top form at the time...

I meant a mix of that formation 4-3-3 when attacking, 4-5-1 when defending. Roshi is still good, and we have Uzuni too now to play on the wings. For a limited team like ours, we need to have our players be playing in their natural position. Uzuni is not a striker, and neither Cika nor Broja are wingers, Hysaj is not a wingback, playing 3-5-2 is forcing so many of our players to play out of position, and I'm tired of seeing this crap continue. Of course I hope we do well regardless but I just dont see it happening, the performances have been mostly bad too under Reja using this formation.

They should just suck it up and get an Albanian coach. I was listening to the analysis of Arjan Peco, Basel's u21 coach about the England match. He said that Cikalleshi on the wing and Broja not being able to hold up play is what killed Albania. Fact is that if you can't hold on to possession for just a little bit you're going to get owned no matter how well you're defending.

Could someone like him or even Bushi really do worse?? Fact is that coaching ,especially at NT level is not rocket science. It has more to do with selectioning than actual tactics/training.

Yeah with the limited time you cant really implement tactics so its more physiological more than anything. Bushi has led these u21s to some big results with not a great bunch if we're being honest since most our good ones are already in the A team.

Analisti televiziv dhe trajneri i futbollit jane profesione krejtesisht te ndryshme. Mjafton me te mare shembull Gary Neville ne Angli dhe Redi Jupin ne Shqiperi me kuptu qe nje analist i mire mund te jete trajner i tmerrshem. Peco se pari duhet te marr ndonje ekip kombetar te moshave me tregu naj sukses per me u konsideru per trajner te kombetares. Nese duam trajner shqiptar nuk ka nevoje me bo kurrfare shpikje, Besnik Hasi eshte personi ma i kualifikuar dhe i pershtatshem per ekipin kombetar.

This right here was the most frustrating part, zero hold up play from any of our forwards. If you can't rely on your midfield/forwards to release some of the pressure then your defense will be subjected to non-stop onslaught by the speedy England's midfielders Even Kyle fucking Walker starting making some runs once they realized there was zero threat from us going forward.

Usually a Cikalleshi on form would hold up play pretty well but both him and Broja couldn’t hold the ball more than 2 seconds most of the time giving it away.

I’m more curious to watch England Poland or Spain Kosovo than us playing San Marino. Poland is playing without Lewandowski.

Armenia playing with a 30% capacity stadium. Seems like it was years ago the last time we had fans cheer for our team...

Doka was very good when Hysaj was missing. I'm surprised he has gotten 0 love from Reja.
