Indeed Yugoslavia will never be world champion again ;)
I remember the final well (a good one), the place I was and everything, it sure brings good memories... Things that will never happen again as well... A bubble in time.

is it so hard to understand ex-Yu was an artificial state without their nationalities having much in common? if it wasn't for London treaty (1915) and italian expansionism it would never exist... and it won't exist ever again, since there is no 1 nation but 7-8-9, not one language but 4-5, no one religion but 3-4 and no same enemy to fight against...

if you guys have troubles, navigating this forum and would because of that like to get an old yugoslavia again, I don't give a fuck and I think neither does any other ex-Yu member here.
Yugoslavia is fucking dead, along wit 100.000+ people, you can start forgetting about it the sooner the better, and the better we'll understand each other with it.

You are young enough to have a hope:)

Being serious, yes there is no probability that Yugoslavia will be together again. By the way, Matiz, it started before 1915 - from Russians in 19th century, liberating Balkans from Turks. And from anyone else trying to get a piece...

discussable considering the interests of England and Russia and considering their role in balkan peninsula.
Russians certanly played their part. With their military succes, Turkey became heavily weakened, with balkan nations being relieved from military superiority they were used to, later gaining their independance through it... but Englad on the other hand was no.1 Greek ally in their independance war... and England slowed down russians since they were afraid they might get to Carigrad- that mixes it up heavily.

Anyone else trying to get a piece- nationalism at it's best in some european countries...

But Yugoslavia as it was, started with London treaty in 1915, since Slovenia and Croatia didn't felt strong enough to oppose italian expansionism combined with potential future german nationalism (tht prooved out strong enough in carinthia anyway- long live HaiderJugend!!!)- and it prooved out they were right. If it wasn't for captain Šubić and some other imprisioned serbian soldiers sent as if representing the allies (joke of a century actually), Ljubljana would probably be included in "terra italianissime" after WW1... and that's how Yugoslavia was created... (from slovenian point of view, didn't bother much to write about Croatian point of view, but italians occupying Reka, Zadar and some other croatian cities, was probably enough of a reason...)
