UEFA chairman Michel Platini said that he would like to make a new Europien league-Balkanian league,in order to put Balkanian football on higher level.This league shoul count 11 countries:Slovenia,Hungary,Croatia,Bosnia and Herzegovina,Serbia,Montenegro,Macedonia,but also Romania,Bulgaria,Greece and Turkey.

This proposition already sounds good in few small Balkanian coutries,wich would have biggest interest for this leagus.So,first man of Montenegro's Football Assosiation Dejan Savicevic,who was recently one of the world best players,said that this league should start as soon as possible.Chairmans of Bosnian FA Ilja Dominikovic and Macedonian FA Haramplije Hagiristeski,said the same thing.

For now on,we can only imagine this league......so,let's try:From Serbia there would be Red Star,Partizan and Vojvodina.....from Croatia-Dinamo Zagreb and Hajduk Split,but why not Osjek or Rijeka....from Montenegro-Buducnos Podgorica and maybe Zeta....from Macedonia-Rabotnicki and Vardar...From B&H-Sarajevo,Modrica or Zrinjski....from Slovenia-Maribor and Domzale....Greece would be the strongest part of this league with Olympiakos,Panatinaikos,Aris and AEK.....from Bulgaria there would be CSKA,Levski and Lokomotiva....from Romania-Steaua,Rapid,Dinamo.... from Turkey-Galatasaraj,Fener,Besektas....and from Hungary for now on,MTK is only.

Now it sounds like a good idea,because former Yugoslavia had one of stronger football league,with 30 000-40 000 fans on almost every match.Interresting thing is that it was league without foreign players.Today in Serbian and Croatian league there is at most 5 000-6 000 fans.Not to mention Macedonian or Montenegro league.

One thing is sure-countries of former Yugoslavia(Slovenia,Croatia,B&H,Serbia,Montenegro,Macedonia) have a good reasons to play this league.The question is-what about Greece,Romania,Turkey....who already have pretty strong leagues.

I am sure that they will find some kind of compromise because here,on these days,good old football can not be any more weaker.

This is an awsome idea! Maybe the top 3-4 who do not make the Champions League/Uefa Cup can make it because otherwise there will be too much fixture conjunction and travelling and would not be fair for say example Besiktas who get cash from participating in the Champions League and then more cash/gate reciepts for this new league/knockout cup tournament...it will alow other smaller clubs in those leagues who finish behind the top clubs expereince travelling and playing different clubs from different countries and could increase fans and viewers and tourism too...

It's certainly a top idea but (now looking at a critical view) maybe some people do not want to see clubs like NK Zagreb and Varteks play against Maribor and Modrica...and that will happen if say Dinamo Zagreb and Galatasary make it to the Champions League or Uefa Cup...maybe they would have to select before the season starts - Do you want to play in the Champions League Qualifiers OR this new Balkan Champions League...? Most prob they will say Champions League and that will let the smaller clubs play - which not too many people are interested IMO.

I agree.There is few crucial problems and that's why this league is still some kind of dream.First...like I said,right now I don't see any reason for Turkey and Greece clubs for playing this league.They already have their own strong leagues,but even without them,this league will be great solution.Second....Away matches can be a problem for traveling fans.Too expencive.Third,but maybe most important...It's hardly to think that match between Serbian and Croatian clubs can pass without troubles,just like in case with Greece and Macedonia...but hey,there is already ex Yugoslavian league in basketball caled 'Adriatic Goodyear League' wich didn't had any troubles with the fans.

..don't know...idea sounds good....I think that they can try....there is nothing to lose.
