Albania v Lithuania Friendly 26.03.2013

Thought I would go ahead and start the thread since its pretty close. Would like to see this played as purely as a way to see what our younger/newer calls have and also as a way to try experimental lineups. I do not want to sees lineup with our regulars, waste of a match imo.

My lineup

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _Cani
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _Sadiku
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _Rama _ _ __ _ Vajushi
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ __ _ Basha Cana
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _Hysaj Curri Mavraj Lila?
__ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Berisha

I really want to see Rama and Hysaj play. I would also like to see Vajushi and Sadiku step up and get more time. I put Cani in there because I dont really care to see salihi and bogdani(what else will they show us at this point) and becuase he also looks to be our regular forward, so further improving the understanding between sadiku and Cani would be nice. It would be nice to get Basha more time and more familiar with the players. I want to see Curri get some action and see if he still has some talent left in him. And I would like to Cana in the mf. It has been a while. I like Mavraj and Lila, there is not much else in the call up list in those positions that I would like to see. Those two are the best alternatives.

I don't understand why people are hating on Salihi. I thought he was dangerous in the game ever before the goal and after the goal. He was doing the best trying to connect with the passes from the midfield and he did have a high work rate but problem is there was 0 service from the midfield. After the goal there was a few plays were Salihi showed flashes of briliance(I thought he did a nice backheel pass lol) Now Cani was completely invisible but not Salihi..

BTW, we can't be chalking up wins. I remember two years back after a win against Belarus and we were all excited. I'm not comparing the two teams as our current squad has 2x the talent and Di Biazi is a much better manager than Kuzhe.

The style we played today is not sustainable and we will not qualify if we attempt to bunker it out unless if we start to get more organized and disciplined. But it was a great strategy considering the injuries and circumstances of the match.

BTW, Di Biazi is a baller. He's done a complete turn around with the NT from Kuzhe who was practically a vegetable. Berisha, Mavraj, Kukeli, Basha, Meha, Rama, Sadiku, Roshi, Hysaj all incorporated under Di Biazi and he's not done. Hopefully we'll be getting players like Kace, Gjokaj, Januzaj, etc, in the picture soon.

EDIT: Posted in the wrong thread.. Might as well post my lineup for the game

Are Roshi and Lila suspended for this match or for the next qualifying match?

If they are suspended for this match go with this:
----Salihi--Bogu
Vajushi-------Meha
-----Bulku-Basha
Agolli-Mavraj-Cana-Hysaj
-------Berisha

If not and I think they aren't suspended for the for a firendly
-------Salihi
-Roshi--Meha--Vajushi
-----Bulku--Basha
-Agolli-Mavraj-Cana-Lila
--------Berisha

there's almost 0 difference between kuzhe and de biasi.

de biasi has mavraj, berisha, kukeli/basha, which kuzhe didnt have.

kuzhe had to go with ****ing admir teli vs. france.


they're both extra defensive, extra cautious coaches, who play salihi as a #10 fantasista

Artan is right i remembe we beat belarus and we all busted a nut. I actually rmemeber the media saying we played like barcrlona lol. I disagree with artan tho we did not play bunker at all imo. Our problem is sometimes we rush it from back and dont utilize midfield. We just clear and kick it out instead of trying to play it out thats why alot of times we bypass our modfield etc. this has to do with lack of quality amongst fullbacks misfielders etc. with time n talent we will get better. I do think tho we are a much better team now then the team that beat belarus

And who do you think brought those players in?

Di Biazi is a baller. He is a generally defensive with his strategies but can you really blame him given the players?

Look at the record of Di Biazi's record since being the manager compared to Kuzhe's record. I'm pretty sure we have a winning percentage well over 50% with DB. Not to mention we've had a constant flow of new talent in the squad. Remember how we used to complain how the same old washed up players would constantly play under Kuzhe? Remember how Skela who played for a 4th division Polish team was our captain? Lala, Duro, etc. We complain when when Bulku and Vila start now but our team was filled with them back then.

Di Biazi has a vision for the squad.. can't say the same about Kuzhe and most definitely can't say the same about Hahn. Those guys stole time that could have been used to develop the NT.

Like I said before:
Berisha, Mavraj, Hysaj, Cani, Kukeli, Basha, Meha, Rama, Roshi all were Incorporated under DB.. That wasn't the case with Hahn

i agree with you. di biasi has brought in many new players and he should get the credit for it

And now what will become of us, without any barbarians?
Those people were some kind of solution.

Im almost positive that Lila and Roshi are suspended next qualifier(Norway at home) not our friendly.

Meant to add I would like to see Meha get time as well. Been having some decent club form recently.

The obvious thing to do is find and try multiple replacements for Lila and Roshi. And let Curri get time ahead of Dallku. At the very least, this is what must be done.

Berisha
Lila-Curri-Mavraj-Hysaj
Cana-Basha
Rama-Meha-Vajushi
Cani

I would like to see how a Curri-Mavraj and Cana-Basha partnership goes because if its a success it gives us more options in future games knowing it works. Lila will will be suspended for the return game but I expect Vangeli to replace him at RB.

I like this lineup, but I think Lila should replaced by someone else like Vangeli, since Lila is not going to play the return game.

Cana is suspended for the return game aswell so we need to test out Curri and Mavraj combo.

Getting all these players is all FSHF's work. After they dropped Lala,Skela, and co the strategy was to get as many new players as possible and build a bigger team because they felt that was the problem in previous qualifiers. De Biasi(although much better than Kuzhe) didn't do shit. Of course he wasn't gonna reject new players. He'll take anything he can get.. but this is all thanks to Redi Jupi and FSHF that they have a plan and there is decent depth right now.

Right now there are about 30-35 players in the team and everyone is more or less at the same level. Even players like Arapi and Lilaj can get in there and put a shift as they proved against Cameroon.

For Lithuania I'm looking forward to seeing Rama. Meha is the most in form attacking player right now and deserves a start too.

Lila, Cana, Roshi shouldn't play as they wont be available for Norway.

I know Cana picked up a yellow but I don't think he's suspended for the next match as he didn't pick up yellow in consecutive matches like Lila and Roshi.

As for the new players that's all on Di Biazi. As soon as he got hired he brought in new players for his first match during those summer friendlies.

Our defense is solid group with alot of depth. Lila, Agoli, Vangjeli, Hysaj, Dallku are fine at fullback and Cana, Mavraj and Curri are solid at CB. Area that worries me is up top at striker as we don't have a clear cut candidate. Bogu is probably the best option but he doesn't have the fitness level anymore.

Lets see how players like Vajushi, Roshi, Cani and Sadiku develop.

Agreed. If he can get Kabashi and Kace as well he will have been a great success in my book.

That's a good observation. That Georgia loss surely affected the expectations and probably helped prepare the players better for Norway.

LOL @ the love Salihi is getting. Look no offense, he scored a GREAT goal against Norway, but he did absolute shit that whole game BESIDES the goal. Salihi sucks and always will. The guy couldn't make it in the MLS, a league that everyone disses as not being good enough, yet it was good enough to throw Salihi to China.

Also, why the fck did Dallku get back in the line up this game? What's the point of getting Hysaj if you're not going to play him?

I like De Biasi as a coach in terms of he's been getting a lot of new guys, but as far as putting up the right line ups, he's no different than Kuzhe or any other coach we've had.


We have to face terms, there's some guys who play for Albania that shouldn't ever step foot in a football pitch, yet those guys are constantly picked to start time after time.

How many mistakes did it take, and how many games did he have to cost us before Ujkani was finally taken out of the starting line up?

Now were finally in a great position to qualify, and the likes of Salihi, Dallku, Vila, Bulku, etc. are going ruin those chances.

You have to come to terms with those players really being our only options. You seem to forget, that we are Albanian and do not have abundance of quality players. I'd love 11 ballon d'or-lever players, but we don't have any, so accept the facts and let's try to get the best out of it.

With all that being said, I'm beginning to save money for a trip to Brazil. Not that it's likely that I'll be needing it, but the hope is enough right now.

As someone else mentioned earlier in this thread, I hope we lose this game. Our mentality sucks, when we have confidence. But one could hope, that De Biazi has the managing skills to create a winning mentality in this team. Good luck, Shqipni!

VETVENDOSJE!

FSHF should try to get Shkodran Mustafi. Make him a fake document like Basha's and he's good to go. He's having ups and downs at his club but still only 20 and a defender.
