Croatia wins Euro basketball GOLD in serbia. Those tears....

and say it with me fellas...

those gholash fed Novi Sadian tears taste delicious.

Our boys walked through the tourney beating all in its path. At times it was too easy. Future draft lottery picks all over the place for the Croatian youngsters. The future is bright indeed.

I think the hosts bombed out in group play.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

you care, since you took the time to read the thread, and post in it.

Thanks for your support.

"you guys"? I only commented on my team's WC greatness.

It was one of the serbs going on about their youth teams, including u-12 girls bocce ball. Credit where credit is due, but who plays bocce seriously?

Also, this was a thread to point out that, if you win a youth tourney that future success is guaranteed. Or that's what we've been told by our neighbors to the east who try to dismiss the only sport that matters, football of which we are dominant. (you guys should know, we gang raped you...)

PS its delicious irony that our boys won it in serbia, and our anthem played as we won Gold.

This clearly eclipses the football world cup silver medal. What an astonishing achievement. Truly outstanding. Well done. People will talk about this and remember it for generations. Maybe more.

Wow

too many re-settled Bosnian Serbs in Vojvodina these days for that to be a problem

REKT

Just shows you the inferiority complex if they were so triggered by my troll comments that they had to go and make their own threads. Hilarious

Congratulations to the Croatian junior team on winning gold and hopefully, they get out and enjoy Novi Sad a bit... beautiful city

on a side note, Novak Djokovic, by winning the Cincinnati Masters, became the first and only player thus far to win all 9 masters tournaments in singles... Federer has only been able to capture 7 of the 9 tournaments, Nadal only 6.... it was not all good news though... unfortunately, brotherhood and unity was sacrificed in achieving such a feat with some Croatian plodder dispatched in the process in the semi finals by one of the greatest sportsman ever
