He's the one to decide if capable of it.

    But leave the results alone, Croatian football is rotten top to bottom. There are lots of problems needing to be addressed. Starting with the personnel behind it. Dalić has already called out on them and talked about some other issues. He's got trust from ordinary people, public support, he's a living hero who recognizes what should be done. If he decides to fight it, they won't be able to stop him and things could change.

    That's the main reason I hope he stays. And shows some courage.



    You'd best read the article. I can answer additional questions and explain the details.

    I've heard that Modric gave a statment favoring Mamic ,infront of the judiciary . And that led to massive hate campaign against Modric in Croatia . So i was wondering why Modric gave such a statment in favor of Mamic, who was sentenced for tax fraud and other irregularities

    He didn't do that. He changed his statement from one hearing to another to help Mamić (who is currently hiding in Međugorje, because he's gotten a 6 year prison sentence in June). And that's illegal.

    Happy memories both of those.

    Don't think most of us are still aware how lucky we were to have those teams. And still very much positive we outplayed France in the Final and should've won the World Cup.

    Playing great against Slovakia.

    So refreshing seeing players run, press and play like men. Didn't think I'd enjoy Croatia way more than Barca.

    A similar pattern as with City and Liverpool, and Pep's Barca.
    Players can run and press:
    1. if they are technically good
    2. if they are physically ready to run
    3. if they are YOUNG

    Croatia: 3 Midfielders, 3 attackers and 2 fullbacks:
    33 Modric
    30 Perisic
    26 Rebic
    26 Barisic
    25 Petkovic
    24 Bartolec
    22 Vlasic

    Compare that to:
    32 Messi
    32 Suarez
    31 Raki
    31 Busi
    31 Vidal
    30 Alba
    28 Griezz
    27 Roberto

    Majority of our team is on a totally wrong side of a hill in terms of age.
    And yet, too many of them are in a team.
    People will say that I am defending EV.
    Even with a new coach, it will be hard to force old horses to run...
    FU Barto, FU the whole board, FU Abidal, FU Neymar. The end of Barca

    I don't discount the age factor but it's the motivation thing as well. I remember great Serie A sides that pressed and ran and had average age close to 30.

    It happens.
    But rarely.

    Look at a Dutch team.

    1. (Almost) Nobody won titles
    2. Young-ish players
    3. Technically good
    4. Run like crazy
    5. IQ

    32 Babel
    29 Blind
    28 Wijnaldum
    28 De Roon
    27 Promes
    25 Depay
    23 Dumfries
    22 Frenkie

    Barca had 6 out of 8 players who press and run the most, older than 30: Messi, Suarez, Busi, Raki, Vidal, Alba.

    In general, old and mentally drained teams can't run and press.

    We are very old and drained.
    Since we won too much.
    And we need to turn the page.
