Reja has fielded the same line for a few years now and I can’t remember a favorable result we’ve had. Maybe Iceland?ZenMaster wrote: ↑Thu Sep 02, 2021 11:35 amSo what's your argument? If Mitaj, Cekici, Broja and Muci would started we would ripped Poland apart? Poland in good day can beat us easily even we have Klopp or Guardiola as manager because it is obvious they have more quality than us. They will have 65-70% of ball possession but let's hope we can defend well and maybe we can snatch positive result because polish defence can be "very generous".artan wrote: ↑Thu Sep 02, 2021 3:28 am If Trashi, Gjasula, Manaj and Cika are all starting it will be a 2-0 loss for us. Cika is an average poacher at best with no pace or technical ability, Manaj is a pitbull who is useless offensively, Gjasula is technically inept, Trashi is playing in a random Arab league and has no pace.
The same thing that has plagued us for the past three years will plague us again. We’ll lack creativity, width and pace. The wingbacks will be pinned back, the midfield will be under pressure and lose the ball, manaj and Cika will be useless as always.
Reja really needs to be aggressive.
The same flaws we’ve had constantly will show up again. We’ll struggle with possession which wouldn’t be that bad if we had a good counter attack but we know our counter attack might be one of the worst in Europe. Our forwards are mediocre goal poachers who will need a lot of service to score a goal. Where will this service come from? We’re basically praying Cikaleshi can score a banger and good luck with that being your offensive strategy. He’s shown he can only score against the minnows of Europe on open headers or in friendlies.
Atleast someone like uzuini can provide some counter attacking threat and is much more comfortable on the ball than Manaj or Cika. I don’t even know what league Trashi plays in at this point and he’s an amateur defender with no pace, is he going to cross the ball from the midfield again? Muci is a passive player but he has technical skills that our forwards don’t have and has shown he can score from long range. Point is this team needs balance and we don’t have any pace, width or creativity in the lineup. The imbalance of this team is comical and we always question why we get embarrassed by decent teams.
We’re just playing at this point for a draw. Good luck with that. We don’t even play to qualify anymore, we just play to not get embarrassed and to finish in 4th place.
