prior to the break up of the former Yugoslavia, it would be quite an argument as to the relative strengths and achievements of Serbian and Croatian football

however, since the break up, there is no question that Croatia is the superior footballing nation at all but youth levels

Capello beamed: "From Savicevic you came to expect these unthinkable plays of brilliance, because from the position he was in most players would have just taken the ball in stride and gone a little further with it, instead he went for this spectacular attempt which has gone down in history and is shown over and over again. It was simply.... Una cosa da Savicevic [the way of Savicevic]."

First season for everything , up until this season, United have barely beaten us, although they have been hard done by in a few games.

So much for the 'non offensive chants' that FNSW advocated beforehand

Yeh we didn't have a good record against you guys prior to this season and Bonnyrigg have done better in the previous years.

Oh well you know how it is. You cant stop people from screaming insults

First EEPL Champion.

Džeko (47 golova) je pretekao Davora Šukera na prvom mjestu najboljih strijelaca reprezentacija nastalih raspadom Jugoslavije. Hrvatski napadač na svom kontu ima 46 golova. Na trećem mjestu sa 38 golova nalazi se Bobek, četvrti je Galić (37 golova), peti Milošević sa 37, dok Zlatko Zahovič ima 35.

"Imam osjećaj da postoje ljudi koji stalno gledaju u sat kad će nestati Bosna i Hercegovina, to traje predugo. A ne znaju da oni imaju satove, a BiH ima vrijeme." - Haris Silajdžić (6.12.2017).

One thing for sure though. Croatia post-qualifiers always brings controversy and excitement. There is usually never a boring moment. Though the Mexican game was a weird one. Hopefully we don't see a similar showing at the next World Cup. They keep the Euro performances close but at the WC they're more unpredictable.

Anytime he's mentioned is a good reason to post a clip or two of him (no matter the team he's playing for):



dalmate and BiHVolim like this.

Još Hrvatska ni propala dok mi živimo,
visoko se bude stala kad ju zbudimo.
Ak je dugo tvrdo spala, jača hoće bit,
ak je sada u snu mala, će se prostranit.

Ekavski is a dialect (or rather an 'accent') of Shtokavski.

That's not an argument for the resurrection of SFRY, btw, but some kind of loose confederation with cooperation in strategic areas would raise the profile of the region significantly. Being a country of c.2, 4, 5 or 8m people in a world where tier three Asian cities that no one has heard of eclipse those populations is not much fun, unless you are Switzerland.

That said, if any ex-Yugoslav side could transcend this basic structural limitation, it will likely be either Croatia or BiH.
Every Balkan side is sport mega force for arrogant Englishmen. I always wonder why countrie of 50 mil. people sucks at sports so badly? Ok I can give credit for horse riding and probably athletics.

Yes, they suck so badly that they won 27 gold medals at the Olympics and 67 in total.

They have problems in basketball as the govt doesn't give any money to the team, hence the good players don't play as they aren't insured. A proper team with all the players would have done well.

They don't "suck" at football. Obviously not on the level of Germany, Spain etc but still regularly qualify for tournaments which isn't something you can say for any Balkan team.

Yeah, because that's entirely related to the national team

"Smashed" = Real beating City 1-0 over two legs

I think Luol Deng and Ben Gordon are the only NBA players that could player for England. Although they have a few D league players and a couple around Europe
