This one is pretty hard to make up some more poll options. You know the drill. We chose 7 defenders here.

pranjic will be under midfielders

ps don't laugh at some of the choices it was really hard to make up some more choices other than the usual candidates

Same as Cevap, just include Vejic. This one is a no-brainer really, there is really no indication that there will be in suprise inclusions, even if there where they won't play.

well pranjic plays midfielder in his club and for cro nt he played more games in midfield when he came on as a sub for someone like kranjcar or whatever, than he did on left back

yeah but we arent talking club here we are talking NT. and i believe Bilic has been talking about him strictly as a LB.

I would call him a defender, as i think Rakitic would be replacing Kranjcar on the LM position.

corluka, kovac, simunic, knezevic - no brainer

pamic - natural full back, only one of the lot
vejic- back up
krizanac - chose him instead of simic. really no brainer for me. krizanac is one of the highly rated defenders in russian league, standard first team member in a team thats currently in semi finals of uefa cup. and simic is a bench warmer

I like the defense you choose. Only difference being, that I think Drpic hasn't done a bad job - based on the 3 or 4 Dinamo games i have seen.
And I feel Pamic just isn't ready to make enough of a contribution anytime soon.

P.S. - I"m surprised Ante Seric never made this list.

This poll shows how D is our biggest concern. Really after the first three it gets pretty thin. But, as has been said hundreds of times, if Srna and Pranjic play in the D then we look a lot stronger. Of course our midfield doesn't look as impressive then. :)

Piscan should be taken off the list.

We don't need him. I don't understand how some people don't want the Kovac's on but for some reason Piscan who's barely played the last year and a half (he coudln't get a game in the championship)and ditched our team a few years ago because he didn't start. He's of no use to our squad.


Kovac, Simunic, Corluka, Knezevic,

Simic- He's experienced
Pamic- Became a regular at Red Bull and seems to be playing well
Drpic- Most seem to think he's played well this year.
Krizanac- Good defender from Russia plus he was Polish league player of the year he might be of use against the poles if our defense becomes utter crap by the time

I agree with you on Biscan, but Vecernji and some other sites seem to be pushing him into the NT. I won't comment about the incident with Baric as we still don't know today was truthfully happened but it's still not good on Biscan's resume

But this is a guy who couldn't play anywhere but Dinamo really, and he has played what, 6 matches in 2 years? He to me is like Balaban, a guy who could possibly still be playing in a decent league/club abroad but came back to Croatia for easy money and easy games, not something the NT needs

I see Sablic got some votes, he had potential, but injuries hurt him and it seems like he has an attitude problem (well at least now with Hajduk)

We know that Simic and Kovac will be included no matter what there club form is like, and Simunic, Corluka, and Knezevic have been apart of our squad during the whole Qualifying, so that leaves us with 2 choices.

I went with Vejic because hes played a few games for us over the last few years and has done well. The second guy i picked was Pamic, everyone knows he will not play, but being apart of the squad will be a good experience for him because he will most likely be our LB in the future.

First 6 + Krizanac, although I don't think he will be picked after that tirade in the papers a while back. I'd like to have him though, just look at Zenit's progress in the UEFA cup and they won the Rusky league as well with him starting in d.
