New NT selector after september 15 !
it's official : nikola gigi ilievski won't be our selector anymore in 2 months. The macedonian FA and him didn't find an agreement.
what to think of his bilan ? i don't really know in fact. except that 2-2 against england in southampton, we can only be proud of good performances against turkey and croatia. he also brought us a 1-1 against lichtenstein that really cost us many points (towards international rankings) and credits.
in fact, our team plays well but loses. but we cannot reproach him our lack of experience and high level of competition. our players often have to content with the domestic league or 3rd rated ones even though they're becoming more and more highlighted with their good performances. i think we can reproach him the fact of denying i. mitreski, hristov, nikolovski, ciric, micevski or stavrevski a place in the NT (half a squad!). we haven't enough good players to get rid of them so easily.
i'm afraid we lose someone really minded with a huge football intelligence. we dont have plenty of such guys though we won't regret his hostility towards medias, vulgarity and dictatorship towards assistants and players, his arrogance and infatuation.
bilan : 3 wins, 5 draws, 6 defeats. goal difference: 24-25.
the new names given are : kanatlarovski, hadjievski, dojcinovski. they don't look so new. maybe a foreign coach could be great like milutinovic. but i guess our FA cannot afford anyone of this kind.
Maybe someone like Savevski could be great.
