shit thread

Its a very valid discussion point. I think having a key player travel half the world before a massive game.
Come back with a bit more shit ****.

If its being played at 8pm South Korea time on Tueday he could potentially be back in the UK by Wednesday morning.

Not an issue.

So you expect a former International manager to break the rules in favour of his club? Risk of injury to players on international duty is something every top flight manager has to face.

Hire Lewis Hamilton's private jet for a cheap quick trip back.... Right now he needs to show some business use... Lewis rentajet!

Being a former Int manager he will also know friendlies are not mandatory and he can be pulled out. Thats why its a discussion point. The rest of squad will be back early next week.

Chungy will probably injure him.

Not crucial to us as some believe, good penalty taker but he's not performing that we'll.

I see Serbia are playing a friendly against China first on Friday, then South Korea.

It certainly is a significant demand to place on the Serbian players based in Europe (which is presumably most of them?) to take part in this trip to Asia in the midst of their league seasons.

Normally I’d say that if you employ an international player then you have to accept that they will have these demands. However, I think Serbia are taking the micky arranging such a long trip for friendlies at this time.

Any Icelandic internationals based in Europe (including Everton's Gylfi Sigurdsson) have a nice little fixture in Qatar next Tuesday 16:30 ko our time.

Don't the South American players have to travel further on a much more regular basis?

It's just a reality of football that players - and not just our players - play international matches, friendlies, etc and often have to travel long distances between club games to do so. Several Premier League clubs will have more than half their squad absent during this period. It's a stupid, entitled view to think that we should somehow be exempt from this.

Could be worse, could be North Korea.

I haven’t suggested Luka should be exempt.

I do think buying players who play for distant countries (such as those in Africa or Asia) is something that a club has to consider v carefully. But it shouldn’t be that much of a deal if you buy a European player nowadays.

And ofcourse some clubs have considerably more strength in depth than Palace do.

But I do think the clubs are entitled to express an opinion on Serbia choosing to play a mini tournament in Asia during the competitive season. There must have been closer alternatives, and this is probably all about the money for them.

Luka will probably return on Wednesday, maybe Thursday. He’ll have had a v long flight and an 8 hour time difference. Then training on Friday to play on Saturday. Not impossible, but much more tiring than if Serbia had played their friendlies in Europe.

I trust they’ve paid for a decent seat/bed for him, so he can maybe rest during the flight back.

Don't be silly.
Check the opt-outs by Liverpool, ManCity and Spurs (although that could be because nobody really wants to play for Southgate). The Germany and Brazil friendlies are now pointless, although they will both probably field youth teams.

This surprised me so I did a little research … As far as I can see, Fifa say clubs have to release players for all matches including friendlies as long as they are on dates on Fifa's 'international match calendar' …

As far as I can see, South Korea's match v Serbia next Tuesday is within Fifa's early November international window, so clubs do have to release players for this game.

Fair enough..good research mate. Serbian manager/federation must be keen to get some games against different type of opponent before Russia.

It's a friendly maybe and the manager wants to give a few of his backup players a run out?

Serbian manager saw a thread on cpfc.org and dropped him as per OP's request.

They don't have this problem with the NFL. Wait nevermind, padded Rugby is only really played in two countries. :-)

Luka didn't play today and again was not on bench. Serbian footy tweet dated 6 days ago says he had pulled out of squad.

Tadic, Matic, Kolorov, Nastasic, Tosic, Maksimovic, Fejsa and Kostic were all not in this squad but were for the game at the weekend.

All play for teams in a top flight league in Europe and are playing regularly for their club i think so he is certainly not alone in terms on not being in the squad today.

I agree..I started this thread for good reason - Especially after what happened to RLC....
I wonder if Roy did have a conversation with SerbianFA. We will never know, but either way Its good he will be 100% for massive game Saturday.
