Tudor-R.Kovac-Simic-Neretljak-Sablic-Zivkovic-Tomas

I only chose 7 because picking anyone else seemed like a charity pick for me since these 7 are the best and Seric isnt going to get picked by Baric it seems. Plus with too many defenseman on the team Baric might be tempted to field all 7-8 at the same time in his starting 11:eek: ;) my ideal would be 3 at the back R.Kovac-Tudor-Sablic(or Simic) while we probably should go with 4 Neretljak-Tudor-Kovac-Simic

speaking of Mijatovic, when do you guys think he will see some NT time, if he ever does...?

Tomas is a good defender. It is not his fault that dumb coaches play him as midfielder or even an attacker :rollani:

Tomas is a SOLID defneder, just ask the Fener supporters but he is hopeless when it comes to passing. He is a central defender, not a midfielder, he is a reliable backup.

He was a good player for the futre a few years back and I do believe he could of played in Serie A. He may have chances to play in some smaller friendlies (like against Macedonia, Bosnia, Poland etc..) but other than I don't think he will be in the NT.

I am pretty happy with our defence. We have a lot of options and I agree that Tomas should only be used as a back up option in central defence.

How is Tudor going with his latest injury. He has been out for a while now and I have some big concerns over whether he will be fit for Euro:(

You just cant rely on Tudor. He should be thought of as an "extra" option. Even when he came back from injury for the big games, he was so-so. he just did his job. Kovac , and Tomas are serious workhorses.
