Sup broskis. Been busy, but still reading and watching the games obviously.
Some positives from the last two, but in general the results seemed to mask our deficiencies. At least we got a goalkeeper, Lazo showed how much we missed a player like him in recent years and my boy Maksa established himself as our best holding mid right now.
It's incredible how Krstajic is able to get away with blatant lies however. He really fooled me, I used to think he was a good guy. Now Djorovic has come out and said that Gruja (who is finally playing NT worthy football and NOW isn't getting called up
) never rejected the U21's.
Back to the NT though, like many here have said, I'd like to us see play to our strengths and go a different route formation wise.
Veljkovic/Maksimovic Milenkovic Nastasic
Lazovic Maksimovic Matic/Milivojevic Kostic
We didn't have the defense for it under Muslin, but now we're getting there. Kostic has established himself as a left wingback in this formation and Lazo has the experience and discipline needed to play the same role on the right. Offensively we'd definitely score at least 2 goals a game with this line-up and although we'd conceded a fair few of goals, I think overall we'd still remain in the plus.
Obviously though we're never going to drop that lazy c*nt of a captain and Milivojevic and Nastasic are not coming back under Krstajic's reign, so this will just remain another fantasy. It's sad because we finally have a side that could do more than just qualify.
