The Unlucky Generation 2008-2012

Looking back I am just wondering at how we could have at least qualified for 2 Major tournaments during this period if there was no boycott, guys like Papac and Salihamidzic were available, Bajramovic's career was not cut by injuries and we had a decent manager (Perhaps Ciro from 2006 onwards) instead of guys like Sliskovic and Susic..

2008 team:



2010 team:



2012 team:



Just look at that. Tipicna Bosanska sreca

I don't think we will simply because our manager(s) has a backward Yugoslav mindset

Also we don't have a half-decent right back and Samir Memisevic lost his starting place at Gronigen. Basically we are doomed.

Nothing special here, in results, individuals or achievements. Not minnows like Serbia, but no generation there to shake anything up or write home about.


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!

You are probably right. But wouldn't you consider them somewhat of an entertaining team to watch? As far as offensive is concerned perhaps...(back then). Of course that's the problem, most of the action was during qualifiers, not post qualifiers (since they couldn't qualify to nearly all the tournaments), but I still think they're entertaining unlike many of the other teams nowadays.

You have no clue what this thread is about.

It's a "what if" based on players coming back due to boycott not happening and Bajramovic's career not getting cut short due to injuries.

Team could have easily made 2 major tournaments which would have been a good enough achievement on it's own.

I gotta admit, I thought this thread was in the WWE forum

My apologies, I agree with both of you, international football is a cruel mistress indeed.
