HNL Week 10: Dinamo, Rijeka Closing the Gap

September 30, 2019





Hajduk Split still maintain sole possession of the top of the table, but the Bili fumbled a few points on Sunday during a tough trip to Pula.



Aldo Drosina hosted the match between Pula and Hajduk, which finished 1-1 after a lackluster performance by both sides. Hajduk opened the scoring with Mijo Caktaš scoring his fourth goal of the season. But Istra’s Stefan Lončar was able to equalize late in the game with an 80th minute goal, his first goal of the season.



Despite not being named on the score sheet, Mario Čuže stood out with several key plays and near-goals. Čuže nearly won it for Istra, but was denied late in the match. Čuže, after scoring six goals early in the season, has gone quite as of late, but the future still looks bright for the young Croatian.





Dinamo Zagreb is creeping up behind Hajduk, not only one point behind with a game in hand. Dinamo soundly beat NK Lokomotiva at Kranjčevićeva on Friday evening 4-0 with goals coming from Damion Kadzior, Dani Olmo, Mislav Oršić and Mario Gavranović.



Former Dinamo star, Sammir, started and played 90 minutes against his former club, but did not stand out and contributed little. Reports from Zagreb state Sammir was “nervous” to face Dinamo which possible subdued his play.



The match will also be looked at as a key warm up for Tuesday’s meeting with English side Manchester City in the group stages of the Champions League. The match will be played in Manchester and City’s Etihad Stadium on Tuesday.



HNK Rijeka is also doing what is needed to be done to keep pace with the top of the table. Rijeka traveled to Varaždin and brought home all three points off the heels of a 2-0 victory. Joao Escoval scored his first goal with the club to give Rijeka a 1-0. Tibor Halilović doubled the lead, giving Rijeka the ultimate 2-0 win.



A week after dismissing their manager, Dinamo Skender, Osijek recorded a 4-0 beating of Slaven Koprivnica. Slaven was without a key player on the weekend as striker Muzafer Ejupi. Ejupi was reportedly arrested and treated for injuries after a brawl several days before the match. Several reports allege Ejupi was involved in an altercation with a middle-aged man regarding a parking spot. The man struck Ejupi several times with a pipe, causing facial and head lacerations. Charges are pending. According to a club statement, Slaven Belupo have not yet taken action on the player.



Winning for HNK Gorica has become as routine as losing is for NK Inter Zaprešić. Gorica recorded a 2-0 win away to Inter on Sunday and remain in fifth place.

    Yugoslavia binded her into backwardness.
    Serbs are big commies to this day.

    You fight for the losing side and you will pay the price for your choice. A lot of the Diaspora fled after WW2 and they hold resentment as well as hate the Croats that stayed behind.

    Thanks to Tito you now have Istria and the current borders as well. You have no idea what Croatia would have looked like had there been no Tito or if it even would have been a country at all.

    It was 75 years ago and most of the people from that era are dead.

    Come back home to the new Croatia and stay awhile

    What you Croats have now is a Croatia in name only.

    This was your Croatia before Tito..

    The creation of Yugoslavia happened in late 1918: after Srijem left Croatia-Slavonia and joined Serbia together with Vojvodina, shortly followed by a referendum to join Bosnia and Herzegovina to Serbia, the People’s Council of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs (Narodno vijeće), guided by what was by that time a half a century long tradition of pan-Slavism and without sanction of the Croatian sabor, joined the Kingdom of Serbia into the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.

    Although the state inherited much of Austro-Hungary’s military arsenal, including the entire fleet, the Kingdom of Italy moved rapidly to annex the state’s most western territories, promised to her by the Treaty of London of 1915. An Italian Army eventually took Istria, started to annex the Adriatic islands one by one, and even landed in Zadar. Partial resolution to the so-called Adriatic Question would come in 1920 with the Treaty of Rapallo.

    The Kingdom underwent a crucial change in 1921 to the dismay of Croatia’s largest political party, the Croatian Peasant Party (Hrvatska seljačka stranka). The new constitution abolished the historical/political entities, including Croatia and Slavonia, centralizing authority in the capital of Belgrade. The Croatian Peasant Party boycotted the government of the Serbian People’s Radical Party throughout the period, except for a brief interlude between 1925 and 1927, when external Italian expansionism was at hand with her allies, Albania, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria that threatened Yugoslavia as a whole.

    In the early 1920s the Yugoslav government of Serbian prime minister Nikola Pasic used police pressure over voters and ethnic minorities, confiscation of opposition pamphlets[31] and other measures of election rigging to keep the opposition, and mainly the Croatian Peasant Party and its allies in minority in Yugoslav parliament.[32] Pasic believed that Yugoslavia should be as centralized as possible, creating in place of distinct regional governments and identities a Greater Serbian national concept of concentrated power in the hands of Belgrade.[33]

    Stjepan Radić
    During a Parliament session in 1928, the Croatian Peasant Party’s leader Stjepan Radić was mortally wounded by Puniša Račić, a deputy of the Serbian Radical People’s Party, which caused further upsets among the Croatian elite. In 1929, King Aleksandar proclaimed a dictatorship and imposed a new constitution which, among other things, renamed the country the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The territory of Croatia was largely divided into the territories of the Sava and Littoral Banates. Political parties were banned from the start and the royal dictatorship took on an increasingly harsh character. Vladko Maček, who had succeeded Radić as leader of the Croatian Peasant Party, the largest political party in Croatia, was imprisoned, and members of a newly emerging insurgent movement, the Ustaše, went into exile. According to the British historian Misha Glenny the murder in March 1929 of Toni Schlegel, editor of a pro-Yugoslavian newspaper Novosti, brought a “furious response” from the regime. In Lika and west Herzegovina in particular, which he described as “hotbeds of Croatian separatism,” he wrote that the majority-Serb police acted “with no restraining authority whatsoever.”[34]

    In the words of a prominent Croatian writer, Shlegel’s death became the pretext for terror in all forms. Politics was soon “indistinguishable from gangsterism.”[35] Even in this oppressive climate, few rallied to the Ustaša cause and the movement was never able to organise within Croatia. But its leaders did manage to convince the Communist Party that it was a progressive movement. The party’s newspaper Proleter (December 1932) stated: “[We] salute the Ustaša movement of the peasants of Lika and Dalmatia and fully support them.”

    In 1934, King Aleksandar was assassinated abroad, in Marseille, by a coalition of the Ustaše and a similarly radical movement, the Bulgarian VMORO. The Serbian-Croatian Cvetković-Maček government that came to power, distanced Yugoslavia’s former allies of France and the United Kingdom, and moved closer to Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany in the period of 1935–1941. A national Banovina of Croatia was created in 1939 out of the two Banates, as well as parts of the Zeta, Vrbas, Drina and Danube Banates. It had a reconstructed Croatian Parliament which would choose a Croatian Ban and Viceban. This Croatia included a part of Bosnia, most of Herzegovina and the city of Dubrovnik and the surroundings.

    After Tito

    ito’s leadership of the LCY (1945–1980)
    Croatia was a Socialist Republic part of a six-part Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia. Under the new communist system, privately owned factories and estates were nationalized, and the economy was based on a type of planned market socialism. The country underwent a rebuilding process, recovered from World War II, went through industrialization and started developing tourism.

    The country’s socialist system also provided free apartments from big companies, which with the workers’ self-management investments paid for the living spaces. From 1963, the citizens of Yugoslavia were allowed to travel to almost any country because of the neutral politics. No visas were required to travel to eastern or western countries, or to capitalist or communist nations.[39]

    Such free travel was unheard of at the time in the Eastern Bloc countries, and in some western countries as well (e.g., Spain or Portugal, both dictatorships at the time). This proved to be very helpful for Croatia’s inhabitants who found working in foreign countries more financially rewarding. Upon retirement, a popular plan was to return to live in Croatia (then Yugoslavia) to buy a more expensive property.

    In Yugoslavia, the people of Croatia were guaranteed free healthcare, free dental care, and secure pensions. The older generation found this very comforting as pensions would sometimes exceed their former paychecks. Free trade and travel within the country also helped Croatian industries that imported and exported throughout all the former republics.

    Students and military personnel were encouraged to visit other republics to learn more about the country, and all levels of education, especially secondary education and higher education, were free. In reality the housing was inferior with poor heat and plumbing, the medical care often lacking even in availability of antibiotics, schools were propaganda machines and travel was a necessity to provide the country with hard currency. The propagandists, who want people to believe “neutral policies” equalized Serbs and Croats, severely restricted free speech and did not protect citizens from ethnic attacks.

    Croatia in SFRY
    Membership in the party was as much a prerequisite for admission to colleges and for government jobs as in the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin or Nikita Khrushchev. Private sector businesses did not grow as the taxes on private enterprise were often prohibitive. Inexperienced management sometimes ruled policy and controlled decisions by brute force. Strikes were forbidden, owners/managers were not permitted to make changes or decision which would impact their productivity or profit.

    The economy developed into a type of socialism called samoupravljanje (self-management), in which workers controlled socially owned enterprises. This kind of market socialism created significantly better economic conditions than in the Eastern Bloc countries. Croatia went through intensive industrialization in the 1960s and 1970s with industrial output increasing several-fold and with Zagreb surpassing Belgrade for the amount of industry. Factories and other organizations were often named after Partisans who were declared national heroes. This practice also spread to street names, names of parks and buildings, and some more trivial features.

    Before World War II, Croatia’s industry was not significant, with the vast majority of the people employed in agriculture. By 1991 the country was completely transformed into a modern industrialized state. By the same time, the Croatian Adriatic coast had taken shape as an internationally popular tourist destination, all coastal republics (but mostly SR Croatia) profited greatly from this, as tourist numbers reached levels still unsurpassed in modern Croatia. The government brought unprecedented economic and industrial growth, high levels of social security and a very low crime rate. The country completely recovered from WWII and achieved a very high GDP and economic growth rate, significantly higher than those of the present-day republic.

    Savka Dabčević-Kučar, Croatian Spring participant; Europe’s first female prime minister
    The constitution of 1963 balanced the power in the country between the Croats and the Serbs and alleviated imbalance coming from the fact that the Croats were again in a minority position. Trends after 1965 (like the fall of OZNA and UDBA chief Aleksandar Ranković from power in 1966),[40] however, led to the Croatian Spring of 1970–71, when students in Zagreb organized demonstrations to achieve greater civil liberties and greater Croatian autonomy. The regime stifled the public protest and incarcerated the leaders, but this led to the ratification of a new constitution in 1974, giving more rights to the individual republics.

    At that time, radical Ustaše cells of Croatian émigrés in Western Europe[41] planned and carried out guerilla acts inside Yugoslavia, but they were largely countered.[42]

  15. KRKIC says:

    In 1980, after Tito’s death, economic, political, and religious difficulties started to mount and the federal government began to crumble. The crisis in Kosovo and, in 1986, the emergence of Slobodan Milošević in Serbia provoked a very negative reaction in Croatia and Slovenia; politicians from both republics feared that his motives would threaten their republics’ autonomy. With the climate of change throughout Eastern Europe during the 1980s, the communist hegemony was challenged (at the same time, the Milošević government began to gradually concentrate Yugoslav power in Serbia and calls for free multi-party elections were becoming louder).[43]

    In June 1989 the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) was founded by Croatian nationalist dissidents led by Franjo Tuđman, a former fighter in Tito’s Partisan movement and JNA General. At this time Yugoslavia was still a one-party state and open manifestations of Croatian nationalism were dangerous so a new party was founded in an almost conspiratorial manner. It was only on 13 December 1989 that the governing League of Communists of Croatia agreed to legalize opposition political parties and hold free elections in the spring of 1990.[43]

    On 23 January 1990 at its 14th Congress the Communist League of Yugoslavia voted to remove its monopoly on political power, but the same day effectively ceased to exist as a national party when the League of Communists of Slovenia walked out after Serbia’s Slobodan Milošević blocked all their reformist proposals—the League of Communists of Croatia walked out soon after.

    Franjo Sranjo was a nationalist lol!

    Ante Paradzik was a nationalist and Franjo Sranjo ordered him to be killed, strange for a “nationalist” to order another nationalist to be killed in a lol Democracy.

    The fact is Franjo Sranjo was a communist loser that will be in HELL for eternity for playing the simpleton Croatian people.

    Also, the truth about the “Homeland war,” it was organized by the communists and cetniks to ultimately lead Croatia into the EU. Why else do you think 3,069 Croatian soldiers have killed themselves since the war ended, they couldn’t live with the fact that they were played.

    Tudjman = communist
    Mesic = communist
    Josipovic = communist
    Kolinda = globalist that comes from communist stock.

    Lol, and @Elvis says Serbs are communists.

    What was it that Otac Domovina said about you Croats again? Oh that’s right, lol “you trust everyone without thinking” and “you forget about those that have wronged you.”

    Lol, Tudjman a nationalist, lol!

    Who has lauded Franjo. Ante was right and took the fight to them for that he was killed. Franjo and Slobo were discussing how to break up and get rich off this. Communists love to get rich. Another thing Europe is under a Marxist occupation called the EU. No nation by blood is allowed no matter how straight faced you present yourself Anonymous .

    You could’ve just said Croatia “is under a Marxist occupation called the EU,” led there by politicians you’ve called “carpet baggers” and the Croatian people elected.

    Lol, and @Elvis said Serbs are communists!

    Serbia isn’t in the EU.

    “Serbs love Yugoslavia”

    No doubt that Tito’s youngest general Tudjman the communist would’ve loved communist Yugoslavia.

    So why did Yugoslavia break up?
    Most communist Croats and communist Serbs would say it was because of greater Serbian aggression on Yugoslavia, what do you think?

    It’s nationalist Serbs/cetniks that are said to be responsible for greater Serbian aggression on communist Yugoslavia, a Yugoslavia you say the Serbs loved.

    Lol, could it be that the Serbs love seeing Croatia in what you call a “Marxist occupation called the EU” more than Yugoslavia.

    What do you think the Serbs would love more?

    The Serb reaction was typical of a leech. Afterall what is a Communist if not a leech. When the Serbs attacked Vukovar what flag were they flying? Yugoslavia = Serbia

    Duing WW2 the Soviets had to tap into Russian Nationlism to
    motivate the troops. Mother Russia they shouted not Lenin.
    Same thing, Serb tapped into Chetnik bullsit to motivate.

    Communist Franjo Sranjo (was he a leech lol?) the anti-facist becoming an Ustasa to fight for “independence” against Yugoslavs (communists) and Serb/cetniks (nationalists), only for the Croats (communists) to ultimately run into the EU, an EU that @Anonymous calls a “marxist occupation of Europe”?

    Lol, you believe that wasn’t planned? And the plan can only go down without a hitch because you Croats trusted the communists without thinking, and forgot about the Croats that were killed after wwii by the communists of which Franjo Sranjo was one!

    Croats are communists.

    FDR once said that “the Croats have to be under a tutorship.” Lol, the Croats are in the EU, led their by the communists that fought against communist Yugoslavia, lol!

    Laugh at the Croats!

  21. KRKIC says:

    Thats not what Tito said, rather your corrupt interpretation.

    When Communist dictator Josip Broz Tito took over in 1945, he attempted to quash Serbian nationalism. He preached that there was no room for ethnic differences in the class struggle. But Serbs, suspicious of Tito’s Croatian and Slovenian background, said he was giving them short shrift. To allay fears of anti-Serb chauvinism, Tito prohibited Albanian-language publications and gave Kosovo’s most desirable jobs to Serbs. When Albanians staged protests in the late ’60s, Tito attempted to pacify them by strengthening local government (largely dominated by Albanians) over local affairs and by restoring jobs. This satisfied no one: It was not enough to dent Albanian unemployment and just enough to rile Serbs. Following Tito’s death in 1980, malcontents on both sides rioted.
