What do you guys think?
Sliskovic was a total nightmare in terms of personnel. Don't forget, his was the era of the BiH line-up being stacked with the likes of Sergej Jakirovic, Dusan Kerkez and other luminaries of world football :rollani:I can agree that he didn't make the scouting himself, but he still called those players up. You might remember the media pressure when Medunjanin first was "discovered", Baka was coach and I think there was a update about Haris every day in the papers, we still didn't get him back then. We can say whatever we want about Ciros scouting, but in the last year (and a couple of months) we got these 3 very promising players, I can't remember last time that happend.
Because they have never beaten us in their history. Because our teams have routinely dominated them in head-to-head encounters on both the club and international level. Because their talent pool has never been as deep as ours. Because it's an objective fact that the vast majority of the players in their current starting XI wouldn't have a place in ours. Because 95% of objective observers in world football would choose Dzeko/Ibisevic ahead of Dedic/Novakovic. Because Bosnian society has always been more focused on football than Slovenian society. Because their qualifying over us is therefore a surprise that needs to be explained rather than brushed away as predictable.Slovenia has qualified for 3 major tournaments since independence, why would you think of them as awkward cousins??
:thumbsup:Jahic-Nadarevic-Spahic-Papac back line would be a disaster every game. Ciro is playing 7 defensive players and we still can't hold on against better teams. 4 + Rahimic and Muratovic would only invite our opponents to score more goals.
We are clueless when opposition comes from the center and when we have to play one on one, because we really lack quality back in defense.
