This has been, at once, the most stressful and hilarious match thread I have ever followed. Thank you and bollocks to you
Aye. Like most things in Skopje, the national stadium was built at great expense with money “borrowed” from the IMF and world bank which Macedonia has no intention of repaying.The national stadium is actually alright too. Not a farm field by any stretch.
Jose gets a lot of crap for being a defensive coach and supposedly preferring defensive players instead but there's no way he prefers leaving Ndom on the bench.That's some cracking build up play with 2 sharp passes from Ndombele. Just hope Jose shows a bit of faith in him.
Take your word for it. Watched 70 minutes of dross stream died and when I got it back working it was 1-2 and they had 9 menCongrats!
Lot's of ref's mistakes for both sides. No pen for you on the first half.
May be foul against our GK before the penalty, second goal for you - clear offiside.
Cheers Judith.So our next match is against Shkëndija in North Macedonia.
I’ve googled them and they play in Tetovo, which is only about 40 minutes drive from Skopje airport, so thankfully no ridiculous coach journey through the Macedonian mountains which are stunning but a pain in the arse at the best of times.
Tetovo is essentially an Albanian town but in North Macedonia. Half the roads in the city centre are literally made of mud. I’m glad there’s no supporters allowed in because it would be rowdy as hell.
Tetovo is also home to a multi coloured painted mosque which is a stunning gem hidden in quite a drab place.
I feel I’m really outing myself as a full on travel geek with these fixtures but yes I really have been to both Plovdiv and Tetovo
