Croatia hasn't won gold in over 10 days

I'm starting to be concerned. Will Croatia survive as a country without constant influx of gold and winning? Their citizens must be placed on suicide watch if this continues.

As you know Croatia became a country in 2012 and has since then racked up all sorts of 1st place finishes including 1st place runner up at the world cup, 1st place in most delusional Tesla heritage claims and many other wonderful achievements.

Is Croatia losing....its way?

I'll admit, we are in a temporary Gold drought.

But if you dig deeper into the cause, you'll find out that in the past 10 days there weren't any opportunities to win Gold. Strictly a scheduling/timing thing, as soon as the opportunities come up, we'll be back to our usual Gold standard.

Why you ask?

PS Stay tuned for El Classico this weekend...the world will be watching Luka and Ivan yet again in awe.

Great thread Arpad, thank you for your concern

Harrowing times for our nation, people walking around like zombies devoid of thought and conversation. Croat men and our women shrug at each other in the streets, somber tones, at times softly whispering "10 days". The situation is dire.

Dinamo's Euro results provide little comfort, I can't imagine what it's like for our Hajduk supporter brethren in the south

Fluka Modric and his scummy real pals get absolutely torched by Messi-less Barcelona. Neat squad player this Modric, but nowhere near wpoty level.

When he won 4 of the last 5 CL and took Croatia to the WC final, I didn't hear you say squat.

Stick to Tiger Cats football and wanking over the hyphenated one.

(other than that, how's things going dude? hope all is well?)

I think we'll all look back ten years from now and laugh to ourselves that Modric won POY.

Who wins these trophies outside of Barcelona or Real? Moneyball.

Great film

If no other reporting existed on Trump/Russia, the fact that the FBI started a CI investigation to determine whether or not the sitting president of the US was either comprised by or an agent of Russia, it would be the biggest political story...ever.

Soros is very, very rich and funds every SJW-cause imaginable. Those are facts, not a conspiracy.

I agree with him that this was a total setup

Great book.

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

Real has won 4 of the last 5. They are the Dinamo Zagreb of world football.

Apart from their dominance, farca won the other one in the last 5 with Rakitic scoring in the final. 6 years ago Bayern won it, and the winner was scored by Super Mario.

Moral of the story? If you want to win the CL, you need a Croatian on your team.
