Albania

Albania suspended by FIFA!!!

fshf.gifWell the news that no one wanted to hear, but everyone knew was coming, is here. The Albanian Football Federation has been suspended by FIFA due to “heavy political interference”. The bad news just keep coming, and it seems that they wont stop anytime soon. With new head coach ready to make his debut, it seems like that will have to be postponed. Arie Haan will have to wait even longer for his first game as the head coach of Albania, and by the time he will have a chance to coach Albania, he might miss half of his players, due to Kosovo’s Independence.

It has been a downhill jurney for Albania so far! Just as the team started to get better, and the hopes of the ‘Tifozat Kuq e Zi’, Red and Black Fans, were on the rise, FIFA and the Albanian Government had to pull this stunt on us. The fans are hoping for a speedy resolution! As of right now, we dont even know if the league will continue to operate? And with the fight for the championship heating up between city rivals Partizani and Dinamo, we might have to wait even longer for their final meeting.

Again, lets hope for a speedy resolution, so we can see how the national team will compare to that of C.Ronaldo’s Portugal, and Z.Ibrahimovic’s Sweden for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Infographics With Barcelona

Every club should do one of the little videos, though for many, it would be significantly more humble and the graphics would be scribbled on scrap paper littered about the club offices.
