WCQ/ Cyprus vs Albania/ 10/15/2013

Didn't see a thread. Already eliminated and best we can do is finish in 4th place.

No Basha or Dallku for this game as both are carrying injuries which means we'll probably see Shitku as a destroyer once again.

I'd like to see this against Cyprus:
-------Balaj
Rama---------Hyka
----Kace-Abrashi
--------Cana
Lenjani-Mavraj-Sadiku-Lila
---------Berisha

I would like to see Lenjani, Sadiku and Balaj get the starts. Too bad Vajushi wasn't called up as we might as well have him start to see what he can provide.

I think we'll see this though
-------Balaj--Salihi
Rama--Kace-Bulku-Roshi
Agoli-Mavraj-Cana-Lila
---------Berisha

I think De Biasi should definitely start Cana in midfield. Yes, he is a shit passer.

But Shaqiri's goal against us came from the fact that we had no proper filtration in midfield. Kace and Abrashi are not pure DMs, and Bulku sucks.

Now that Meha is here, here is our offensive plan.

1 - Rama cuts on his left and tries to score
2 - Meha freekicks

The only way we can score goals ^

As I mentioned in another thread. FIX THE ****ING SET PIECES!

Christ De Biasi sucks at organizing set piece defending.

what a horrible 1 1/2 months it's been for Albanian football.

We were at the pinnacle of Albanian football success with the NT and with our clubs for it to only get squandered in a few matches..

We had steady momentum going with the hiring of DB. We had our downs but we kept on moving forward and we kept on adding to the squad but since the September matches we fell flat on our faces.

Can Loret Sadiku play DM or CM?



Pretty sure it was mentioned he could.



I really doubt Cana can play DM anymore.

It should be


-Berisha-

-Lenjani- -Cana- -Mavraj- -Lila-

-Sadiku- -Xhaka-

-Gashi- -Abrashi- -Rama-

-Balaj-



We will barely concede any goals like this.

It's too defensive and lacks creativity. Kace should be a starter! He's our most talented midfielder and also our best at the moment. Abrashi as playmaker doesn't work because he don't got the qualities for that position. I think Meha should play on Gashi's position because he's more creative and also a smarter player.

I think this is a better formation and fits better with the players we got. Sadiku played a few times as DM for his club and we should try him at that position. We don't got a real playmaker so then at least our wingers should be creative.


---------Berisha----------
Lila Cana Mavraj Lenjani
---------Sadiku-----------
---Abrashi-----Kace------
Meha----------------Rama
-----------Balaj-----------

i think it's time to promote a u21 player or two for this game. give them a sign that we're counting on them for the future. we haven't had a u21 player that got a chance with the first team for some time now. just pick the best ones out and give them some playing time.

I completely understand what you're saying but our U21 is weak. What we should do is give a chance to our other youth talents that aren't currently part of our ages.

We should give Sinan Bytyqi, Orhan Ademi and Valmir Sylyejmani a chance of playing for our national team so they wont switch alliances in the future.

If Sadiku can in fact play dm then i like shqiptar22's lineup. If sadiku cant play dm can kace and abrashi hold it down despite their height? Is abrashi the main dm at his club team?

Abrashi plays as a CM. There is always another DM behind him. I think Sadiku can fix this problem.

Either by playing DM himself, or pairing up with Mavraj, and letting Cana play DM.

We need to pair up a pure destroyer with Kace and Abrashi, and Bulku ain't doing it.

I'm down with giving Sadiku shot at DMF (if it does not work out against Cyrpus, T. Xhaka can play DMF).

I really do not feel comfortable with Cana playing DMF. It's been a long time, and he was never good at it for the NT.

If I'm not mistaken Abrashi is as close as a DM gets and he has the traits to be a destroyer. He's very active/relentless, puts in hard challenges, aggressive, etc..

Playing Sadiku at DM will not fix the issues on hand and I don't think he's a better DM than Abrashi. A partnership of Kace and Abrashi centrally is more than enough coverage defensively but the only downside is size(no Mbreti I kosoves)

We need to insert an attacking midfielder in the lineup and that's what hindered us over the past 1-2 months. I think a guy like Hyka would be ideal and inserting Roshi or Meha on the right side would be good enough(although I prefer Roshi for his defensive help)

--------Balaj
--Rama-------Roshi
---------Hyka
-----Abrashi-Kace
Lenjani-Mavraj-Cana-Lila
-------Berisha

I think that's our most balanced lineup. Let Kace play the deep playmaker role. Let Hyka, Rama and Roshi run on the counters.

I wouldn't mind seeing Sadiku getting a start at CB for Mavraj or Cana just to cap him and get his feet wet. I'd prefer to start him over Mavrah

Sadiku and Lenjani have to start. Cap them so we can sleep on it. This is Albania, nothing is strange or irreversible. Sadiku and Mavraj for me, give Cana a rest to chew. Considering our world class attack I'd like to start Rama as a support striker to Balaj with Lenjani LM. Kace and Abrashi only in CM and Meha RM.. Is it too late to call somebody? Cos we can do with a youth or two who's not sure. Cap em. Let's be arseholes like Greece and Swiss. Even England capped Sterling at 17 and hasn't since. It's more than a burn,it's a promise and also it gives fans a better hope and current dross a kicking. We cap Kace at 19 and we make a big deal. You can always see talent early, make your move. If he don't develop you haven't missed the opportunity
