Bradaric, Sosa, Pajac all would make more sense than Melnjak.

Also I think Barisic hasn’t played in a few weeks? Dalic is beginning to lose me a bit. Don’t really have a good feeling for this game.

Also Kalinic shouldn’t start. He hasn’t played since Hungary I think. Give Livakovic the nod.

“Surprise player is Dario Melnjak, a player I've never heard of before. A left back.”

Agreed.

Has anybody ever heard or followed Dario Melnjak? I know Dalic made it a point to say he hasn’t been following him just preko noci.

he recently mentioned he sent scouts to watch this kid. he also said he's been getting standard minutes for the past seasons...basically, my interpretation is that he doesn't want a band aid remedy. he'd rather play someone in that position that is familiar with it...no need to try and get Jedvaj or anyone else playing out of position.

Bejl hasn‘t played much lately at Real, no? should be out of form

also, from what I read on nso.hu, players of Tottnhem and Liverpul aren‘t in their squad because CL final duty. Ramsey or what‘s his name injured.

Bale has been essentially frozen out at Real and barely plays..but still poses a big danger. Speed and strong in the air. And for us Lovren, has barely played at all for Liverpool this year...and in the CL will be on the bench too..

I don't know much else about Wales players..but they'll battle no matter who they put out there...

usually they are a bunch of pub team hacks and have 1 or 2 stars, who now either aren‘t nominated or out of form, nobody to feed that gay hack Bejl with balls. we‘ll play against them too 3 days later, so you better destroy them hard so they‘ll arrive demoralized in Judapest :D

Curse your jinxing you no good Mađar sheep herder! Bejl is a threat and we will have to neutralise him and have our midfield run the others ragged, unlike against you lot when we totally shat the bed.

In a game like this, we should be able to control the play and limit any opportunities to set Bale on a long counter by always doubling on his side. We should easily take the play to Wales...we have a strong enough midfield to control possession.

no jinxing. you better neutralise that genderneutral cünt, best case scenario he gets injured or a red card. Wejlz fo shaw is the team I want the least to do well from our group.

We are in a very complicated situation.
It is the time to put fresh blood in the national team but in the starting XI.

After the run in world cup nobody will dare to put some players on the bench but it is needed.

Let the likes of livakovic benkovic bradaric sunjic vlasic gain experience.

Most of our players from the world cup had a very average season.

It is the time to start a cycle with the new generation of players.

This exact process gives me a pit in my stomach about this qualification cycle. On paper we should be the clear cut #1 team in the group but when your moving from an old generation to a new one, it’s not easy coupled with the fact that no team in our group is a walk in the park and they all feel like they can qualify. I think typical us, we’ll eek by via the playoffs and make it in that way.
