Teams: Zrinjski Mostar, Glasgow Celtic
Reaction to Velez relegation
This season Mostar lost one of its clubs to the 1st division, the famous Velez Mostar. This is the most shocking result in BiH football last season. To think, one of the Ygo liga's constant premier league teams was relegated in the BiH Liga !!
Although not Mostars oldest club, Velez had become the symbol of this city in the Yugo league and this a great loss to their fans and BiH football fans in general.
What are your reactions?
I personally feel that they let themselves down, poor preformances, shoddy organisation and a bad team combined to knock Velez out.
I was never really a fan, I supported Zeljo more back in those days. I have mixed feelings about their relegation, on the one hand I am an avid Zrinjski fan and this will undoubtedly make us stronger, on the other, there will be no more local derbies for Mostar unless we meet in the cup for at least one season. The derby had great atmosphere and the rivarly was predominantly sporting, with a lot of unpleasentness thrown into the mix.
Maybe, in time, the Mostarci will have two strong clubs competing in the top league, but for now its survival of the strongest, and Velez was nowhere near strong.
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!
