United Albanian National Team - 1 NT for all Albanians

Korcari452010-05-10 02:18:53 +0000 #1
Now with Kosova Independence , Kosova will have the right to create its own NT and will soon be a member of FIFA and UEFA. In the past week the media has been very active upon this issue and people as well as fans Federation officials are calling for a Unified Albanian NT and possibly a Unified Albanian Superliga between Kosova and Albania. Albanians from Macedonia are also calling for a unified NT where they will too take place. It will be interesting to see what will happen come at the end of 2007. Albanian fans from Macedonia, Albania and Kosova as well as Montenegro are teaming together to make their voices heard about this issue and are putting pressure on all Albanian Federations to make this happen. There are also people who are against this also but we will see what happened. Albanians of Ilirdia(FYROM) are also calling for them to participate in the Albanian NT.

I will be posting some different Articles that have been flowing around as of late and I will try to translate some so non Albanians can get a feel of what has been happening.

Tifozët: Duam përfaqësuese mbarëkombëtare

(The Fans : We want One Albanian National Team)

Kosova has prepared its NT but the doors still remain open.

Albanian Fans that live in Macedonia are demandng the creation of one united Albanian national front which will have the selection of futballers from Albania Kosova Macednia and Montenegro. The major fan groups in Iliridë: Shvercerat, Ballistët and Ilirët have expresed that all Albanians to unite under the slogan "një komb, një Kombëtare" "One Nation, One NT" "We are for one NT for all Albanians. We believe that this will not show only the Unity between all Albanians, but it will give the opportunity for our team to be more successful", have said the leaders of the Fan organizations. Not long ago, the officials of the Albanian FA have embraced this idea, and have admitted that the creation of one NT, is not going to be as easy as it looks. In the federation of Kosova, where for some time have started the preparation for the creation and recognition of its own National team, and have expressed with positive notes for its future.

A little more than a month to the start of the activity of the Albanian NT, a great number of the firey Albanian Red n Black fans have left aside the songs, parties, massive organizations, and the red and black colors that takes control of the stadiums. For the 12th player on the pitch, (Without them Baric's team would have a hard time to leave it all on the field), has come the time for the monumental issue. Which is the discussion of the creation of one representative for all of Ethnic Albania, for which they are willing to lose their voices in the stadiums. No one has second thoughts, "një komb, një Kombëtare" "One Nation, One NT" it should be one of the only slogans covering the rectangular green field in the National competitions. "We are for only one National team of all Albanians and believe that more success will be possible once this is realized and this idea will be realized if it has good cooperation from all sides" has said the leader of the tifo-group "Ballistët", Valdrin Hasani for "albaniasoccer". Anyways, he has alarmed that Kosova is prepairing its own national team, will create the seperation of the different fan groups that have come together, where everyone will not agree on certain issues. In this issue have been also the leaders of Iliria which are part of the Albanian fan Group "Tifozat Kuqezi" who have asked to not break up the unity of the Albanian NT. "We are for one NT", has declaired Avdulla Ymeri, the leader of this group. "we are part of tifozëve ‘kuqezi‘ and always have supported the Albanian NT. Even if Kosova creates its own NT, we will still be fans of the Albanian NT". the Leaders of "Shvercerat Shkup": "were hoping that as soon as possible Kosova will be a sovern country, since it is the only way the Kosova Federation will be accepted in UEFA. We believe that even Kosova should have its own represantation. If this happens, the leaders of FFK-së to keep in mind that even in Macedonia there are Albanian futballers that know how to play the game that have not been selected by Albania and Macedonia. With this work, even our group will cheer for Kosova, just like it is for the Albanian NT", has said the leader of this group. Also known as "Dardanët - Shkup", from the year 1999, in the match against Russia. "They have always protected the red and black colors".

Dude, I'm all for one NT! but i dont see it happening. This is up to FFK and they want MONEY.. if the leagues would combine that means that one of the federations needs to be removed. I dont see 2 federations managing one league.. It would be pointless.. As for NT's having a KosovarNT would benefit the FFK way more $ wise than having it united..

One thing I know for sure is that the moment Kosova gets a accepted by UEFA, say goodbye to our chances of ever qualifying.. We have problems now but just imagine us without CANA,CURRI,Dallku,Beqaj,Berisha,etc..

tifo groups obviously dont want NT's seperated but what do the presidents of the 2 federations say, you got any info on that?

What brings money to the NT is primarily the Fans and if the Fans boycott this then what is the point of Money. As for the Federations there can be delegates from both sides not two Federations but only one with representatives on all sides. The question is will the power hungry people accept this? Can you imagine how much stronger the league would be with the best players on both sides on the top fight. The level of football in Kosova is very low with alot of economic problems so they would be benefitting alot more from funds and programs that FSHF has. Also these players you mention only Beqaj has said he wanted to play for Kosova openly as for Cana he said he only plays for Albania and as far as he is concerned Kosova is Albania. There is a very good possibility it will be one NT with Albania being it and Kosova being the B NT. So all the upcomingplayers for the NT will be playing for Kosova and the Senior team Team A will be Albania. After all what is football without its fans??? Nothing.

Ok but do you really think Kosovars would boycott their league? i highly doubt it.. These tifo groups like ballistet,tifozat kuqezi, etc... are mostly from MAcedonia and Albania.. alot of Kosovars support the idea of having their own NT and league... imo its stupid

2 Albanian NT's = LAAAAAAAAME!!

Plisat the biggest fan Group from Kosova is part of Tifozat Kuq e Zi and it is for one NT as well. This will happen only with good cooperation from both sides and i doubt any1 would be mad about this because the majority on both sides want it. Were talking about a few people that dont want it.

Arbnor Morina thinks that Kosova should have its own NT but thinks that joining our two leagues for one is a nice idea. i read it on albaniasoccer.com.

I have read a lot of articles on this issue and all of the people that were interviewed were up for it.

Honestly I disagree with that! Greece and Cyprus have their own NTs WHY NOT that same for Albania and Kosovo (THAT IS IF Kosovo gains Independance??????)
