anyway, imagine how much easier it is now for the non-Serb Yugoslavs that had supported Partizan in the past - whether as their team of choice or their pick from the old Yugo Big 4 - knowing of Partizan's true checkered history

for the purists, no doubt... since it was not allowed to operate during the old Yugoslavia

Partizan was formed by Serbs sranjo had nothing to do with it. Hajduk was form by Serbs

NK TŠK Topolovac - perhaps the greatest team in HNL history.

Zrinjski it is, Thompson will approve

although in future it'll be most likely NK Osijek, with Kárpátia approving

Dinamo is the best Croatian club...there's no other club that even comes close to them or their achievements.

Zrinjski are probably the most sentimental Croatian club...

Hajduk has the best fans but are a shit show organization that seem to be plagued by a never ending drama and lack of leadership.

Partizan may be considered a popular club in Serbia, especially because their rivals are Zvezda, but they were always considered the armpit of soccer because of their JNA relations...communism 101.

One of the best players that ever came from Serbia came from Zvezda, I'm sure Hajduk Split's dad was a fan of his...Dragan Dzajic. he was a very good player, tons of talent.

In all honesty, in terms of present day and looking at results/how the club is run/etc. we have to include Rijeka in the conversation. Historically, I know we haven't done shit and traditionally been in that 2nd rung of clubs (Osijek, Rijeka) that usually hang around the top of the table.

But currently, we have the best coach in the league who typically gets a lot out of 2nd tier talents/re-treads. Our academy, while nowhere near Dinamo, does produce some decent talent that is making its way into the 1st team. In a few years, we'll have hands down the best stadium in the country. We're financially stable and run pretty well (although Miskovic is in the same realm as Mamic, just that he doesn't get the press Maminho does ) and I would have to say Armada is one of the best ultras groups in the former SFJY

I agree with what you say, I was talking about historically and over the past 20 years in particular. Dinamo has produced several players as well as sold several for excellent profits.
