[QUOTE]Football fans in Bulgaria are so fed-up with their team's fortunes they have asked if the club can play in neighbouring Macedonia. Supporters of Pirin Blagoevgrad — famous for developing talent such as ex-Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov — were relegated from Bulgaria’s top flight on Monday after a hotly-disputed goal condemned them to a 2-1 home defeat. Vitosha Bistritsa's Grigor Dolapchiev was flagged offside by the linesman but the referee waved play on and the striker took advantage to score his side's second goal. "Dear leaders of Macedonian football, we the supporters of Pirin Blagoevgrad, urge you to accept Pirin in the Macedonian football championship as of next season,” supporters wrote in a request to the Macedonian Football Federation, adding they would accept a place in any division. Pirin and the club's followers have complained of unfair treatment by the Bulgarian Football Union (BFU) and referees on several occasions during the season. "In the last 20 years Pirin have been deliberately subjected to repression by the BFU,” the fans' letter said. The club, who play in a town 20 kilometres from the Macedonian border, have reached the Bulgarian Cup final four times and competed in UEFA's European competitions. But in 2011 Pirin were expelled from Bulgaria’s top flight over unpaid debts and six years earlier were kicked out because of unpaid taxes. Neither Pirin or BFU was immediately available for comment.[/QUOTE]

I was just going to post this.

Come on home, Pirinci. Come on home. If soccer is what it takes, then that's what it takes :)

Zaev wont allow it...

Pelagonija 05-24-2018 07:59 PM

I like the idea..

On a serious note, as a keen Football enthusiast I would like to see the ex yugo league re-instated for the sake of quality and in order to produce better players

The current format is just not feasible, players aren’t exposed to high quality football week in week out hence can’t evolve into quality players and the ones with half of talent get snapped up early on by the colonial powers.

This is good for the colonial masters, we can buy our kids man utd shirts, pay for tv rights and support teams with no affiliation whatsoever.

Fark that..

Zaev will probably unite the Macedonian league with the Bulgarian one. Today the Bulgarian PM suggested to him that both countries should share embassies, seemed like they both like the idea.

I don't think you're too far off the mark with that one

[B]A first as Bulgarian, Macedonian PMs jointly celebrate May 24 in Rome[/B]

For the first time, the Prime Ministers of Bulgaria and the Republic of Macedonia are jointly celebrating in Rome as their countries mark May 24, the day of Saints Cyril and Methodius.

The day celebrates the Cyrillic alphabet and Slavonic learning and literature.

Every year in recent decades, Bulgaria and Macedonia have sent official delegations to the Italian capital that customarily includes, among other things, venerating the tomb of Saint Cyril and an audience with the Pope.

In 2018, against a background of an official warming of relations between Sofia and Skopje that significantly has included the ratification of a good-neighbourliness agreement, several of the events jointly involve the delegations from Bulgaria and the Republic of Macedonia.

[U]During their two-day visits to Rome, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borissov and his Macedonian counterpart will attend the opening of a Macedonian-Bulgarian cultural programme organised by the ministries of culture of the two countries[/U].[/QUOTE]

[B]Macedonia PM Zoran Zaev: By jointly honouring Cyril and Methodius, Bulgaria and Macedonia confirm their true friendship[/B]

By jointly paying tribute to Cyril and Methodius, Bulgaria and Macedonia confirm their true friendship, Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev told reporters in Rome, Focus News Agency reports. He said that the work of the holy brothers was an example and congratulated everyone for the holiday. “The tribute at St. Cyril’s tomb and at the memorial tablet from Pope Adrian II in honour of the holy brothers Cyril and Methodius, which we did together with the Bulgarian delegation led by the prime minister, reminded us of their spiritual and enlightening contribution to all Slavic peoples,” said Zaev.

The club was founded by Macedonians. Do we know if this is serious though? Or is it more of a statement of defiance like Iraklis in Solun?

FIFA would allow it. Wellington Phoenix is a New Zealand team that plays within the A-league = Australian league. I can't see why it wouldn't happen.
