Kova and Pašalić aren't like for like. Two very different types. I'm hoping he starts Sučić, give the kid a chance in a big game.Without Kovacic I think we'll either put Livaja up front with Kramaric behind him and Vlasic on the right. Another option is Vlasic in the middle and Brekalo/Ivanusec at RW. Could also just do a like for like swap with Pasalic.
Majer? He got there late so unlikely they'd just throw him into the XI. Then the injury at the start of the month. Haven't watched him for Rennes but what I have seen of him I still can't find a spot for him in the NT XI.How come he’s not started any games yet?
If it is Jakić who steps in it will be him and Broz behind Modrić. But I really hope he goes with Broz-Mods-Sučić.Jakic behind Brozo and Modric should be alright no?
On the other hand when Majer will be considered seriously?
Rennes fans are already crazy about him.
What a fiasco it will turn out to be if we drop points in Malta.Ključna utakmica i, vjerujemo, borba za prvo mjesto (uz uvjet dobrog rezultata na Malti) imat će sjajnu kulisu, krcati stadion u Splitu na kojem Rusi 14. studenog moraju pasti za izravan plasman na Mundijalwww.24sata.hr
Poljud sold out
So Broz is an attacking mid now, a no.10?Dalić objasnio zašto je opet pozvan Petković i gdje će igrati te jednu veliku promjenu za Hrvatsku na Malti
Petković u špici, a ne iza napadača
''Što se tiče pozicije, ono što Petković igra u Dinamu, tu mi imamo najbolje igrače na svijetu, Luku i Broza. Mi ga trebamo u špicu, pred suparničkim golom, mora zabijati golove.''
"Mi ga trebamo u spicu" means we need him as a striker!
He's right about Petković not being a 10 but to say Broz is a 10/attacking mid (and the best in the world lol) is ridiculous.No, but Dalic is right here. Nowhere on planet earth in any respectable team/league is Bruno playing as a #10. He’s a sunshine footballer who is 27 and playing in the HNL after he flipped in Italy. I think Livaja has scored close to as many open play goals in the past year than Bruno in the past 3/4. Let’s get real here. He’s at best a decent sub at the international level.
Dalić made it clear in one of those pressers that Gvardiol will start at CB. With Barišić suspended, Sosa has to start.I also still worry about Juranovic in the big spot. Stanisic still gives you something going forward but can cover on the back. Sosa struggles on the defensive part too. Think Stanisic gives a bit better balance but if Gvaridol is on the left I’m good with Juranovic on the right.
Gut tells me Gvaridol will be the LB
That's very harsh on Kalinić. Goals per game for the NT he's only behind Šuker, Eduardo and (by a tiny margin) Mandžukić.Livaja? really?
Livaja was needed because we are extremely thin for attacking options. Krama was shooting blanks, Petkovic is unpredictable (we never know if he will come to play or be a bystander), Brekalo was in horrible form, Rebic in a war with Dalic, Ivanusec went cold.
Livaja is not a good option if you ask me. He is everything for Hajduk but his aptitude for the game at this level is just not there. I don't want him on the team, he's a sub at the very best and he should never be considered a solution, a starter...he's worse than our infamous Nikola Kalinic was!
If we are depending on a player like Livaja, we may as well pack it in now!
