One Cyprus Football team!

How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

One Cyprus Football team!

Postby MrH » Tue Feb 24, 2015 2:19 pm

In a new turn of events surrounding the TRNC's football association/federation, it appears that the best avenue is for BOTH Cypriot associations to unite and create a mixtured "Cypriot" Football team for the next coming world cup. Turkey's latest u-turn on the TRNC in angering our Football association has made it very clear that we no longer have any choice in ever being accepted with Turkey's Football federation. Seeing that, that's the case, perhaps reapproachment on the issue of sports in particular could finally set the ball in motion for a future, and viable, Cyprus solution?

Seriously, you think that football is going to solve the Cyprus Problem????

Your lot signed an agreement with the official CFA one day and tore it up 2 hours later!!

Seems your understanding of the Cyprus Problem and mine are miles apart, but good luck with that one.

Oh, and btw, we don't have any problem with our football, what problems you have with your motherland is your business.

Personally have no issues with the TC's joinging the CFA and would welcome any such move. In a few years time once the TC's start playing competitive football we might even see a few in the national team.

If history is anything to go by Turkey always has the final say in anything to do with your people so even if the two football associations were to be unanimous in something I wouldn’t hold my breath that it’ll come to pass.

Your problem is that you’re not an independent country as some of you seem to imagine but a Turkish-occupied territory so the occupier calls the shots.

What hasn't been mentioned is how this came about. Recently a few football players have transferred to teams in Turkey, the issue is that Turkish teams have refused to negotiate and pay transfer fees. This has created tension amongst TC football teams as the TC football federation has no method of recourse. The Head of the Turkish football federation visited last week, promising a solution to the issue according to FIFA norms ( whatever that means, I know FA about football).

It could be. Now imagine if the TCs demand that 30% of even 50% of the players must be TCs. See how this could ruin the Cyprus team in the way that such demands ruined Cyprus? And after they would ruin the Cyprus team they would say that the "solution" is to have 2 equal coaches ... who must always come to an agreement before they give any orders to the players :lol:
