The Croatian Cup semifinals concluded Wednesday night with Hajduk Split and Lokomotiva each reaching the final after their second leg ties. After a 2-1 win in Koprivnica last week, a 1-1 draw was good enough for Hajduk to progress to the final. However, it did not come without nerves at Poljud. Slaven’s 21 year-old midfielder Dejan Glavica put his club up 1-0 in the 32nd minute with no reply from Hajduk until the 72nd minute, when Antonio Milić would rescue the bijeli with a goal. Hajduk currently sit in second place on the Prva Liga table, one point in front of Lokomotiva.
Lokomotiva pounced on Cibalia Wednesday night in Zagreb, winning 3-0 after a 1-1 first leg draw in Vinkovci. Goals from Šitum (19′), Antolić (43′) and Kramarić (89′) were good enough for the victory as a Zagreb side not named Dinamo will contest Hajduk for the Cup. Andrej Kramarić is having a fantastic season, leading his side to the final while being tied atop the Prva Liga goal scoring lead (15 goals) alongside Rijeka’s Leon Benko. The Final will be contested over two legs on May 8th and 22nd.
This is easily the greatest contest on this site

Wow!!! LOL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you, I needed that!
I propose a new contest: let’s do a “How would Cico respond?” It has to include the word arrogant, insane spacing and overuse of commas and a hypocritical sign off.
Let me begin with my submission
You are, just ARROGANT person, Beautiful CITY worship, you, Hajduk, , , NONSENSE. Bog , Congo , American Airlines , HNS! Mamic AROGANT
I beg to differ re: Ziva. No way he is a Mamic fan rather he calls it the way he sees it and the way it is. You could learn from him instead of being arrogant and petty in your posts.
The Real Live Truth is that Ziva Istina is The BIGGEST ARROGANT MAMIC/dinamo FAN that has EVER LIVED !!! Bog , Hrvati , Hajduk , i HNS !!!
The last time Hajduk won something twitter was not around and most people had no clue about Facebook, HDTV, iPad, the importance of taking a shower, electricity, etc……
Ziva – Told you I would find one. Thank you, Lokomotiva.
Is that a Lokomotiva fan I see?? ^^^^
Yes, now it’s just a matter of how many points Dinamo will win by.
2nd place. Beautiful.
Lokomotiva, Lokomotiva. 🙂
I just got back from misa. Do you realize that TWO Olympics have passed since Hajduk has won a championship and that my little niece and nephew (born in 2009 and 2007) live in a world where Hajduk has never won a championship? Furthermore my niece lives in a world where Hajduk has NEVER beaten Dinamo! I’ll take this championship but Mamic still needs to go. I wish it could be like 2005/6 again when the last real race was.
PURGERI SMO PLAVE KRVI, OPET SMO PRVI! SAMPIONI!
The best team and the most popular in and outside Hrvatska is GNK Dinamo. Hvala Bogu.
yes I prayed and look what happen they only got one point today. Too funny. Lokomotiva in second place. Hey Cico are you going to blame the refs again. Loser. lol
Bog , Hrvati, Dinamo I HNS.
Split , while your in Church , Please Pray to the Lord for some Brains , & a better choice of teams ! Also Change your hashtag U pea brain pizda ! Bog, Hrvati, Hajduk, i HNS !!!
Of course, “tu su moji didovi”….it’s dalmacija, where else would they go??? To work?????? ha
dalmatinac sam!!!!! tu su moji didovi……….
While I do love my hajduk, I love myself even more. I said Dinamo would win the league by 18-20 points (not shocking, i know), so that is the only reason I am still watching this sranje. To see if my call was correct.
When Dinamo does win the title, will the victory parade feature 98 fans or 101 fans. Getting into triple digits is important.
If jadan Hajduk lose today, Dinamo will officially be crowned champions for the eighth year in a row.
Yeah right believe that but they sure did love Tito as a supporter. You missed that point dipshit and commie.
@ torcida split
You just keep believing Hajduk has clean hands. Lol
Dinamo is better but typical bias Hajduk fans refuse to accept this. Oh well off to church now to pray for jadan Hajduk.
Torcida fans are passionate, and it’s unfortunate that the former players who stole from Hajduk didn’t have the same passion for the club. The fans deserve better.
Hajduk has produced some amazing stars.
Look I actually want a strong Hajduk because I feel it would bring out the best from Dinamo. Most importantly, I want to see Hajduk re-establish it’s successful youth production line.
But I’m just calling it how it is when I say Dinamo is better.
Croatia vs Antwerp , yes U r correct in recent years , but not before ! Hajduk is Loved by More Fans in the U.S.A. , & in Croatia . Hajduk has trained more Big Team Players than any other in The History of the HNL !! Bog , Hrvati , Hajduk , i HNS !!!
Just like Mamić for dinamo is no angel either making threats to the Minister Of Sports over the radio and getting arrested for it.
Just wait in a month or two when UEFA is done with there investigation with Dinamo and Locomotiva. Then we will see who cheats and what sanctions UEFA will bring against them.
Also Javier Zanetti who has played in a lot of the top stadiums around Europe and the world said after Inter Milan beat Hajduk 3-0 in Split that he has never seen such great and passionate fans like the ones in Split his whole career. “We scored or first goal there fans got louder. We scored our 2nd goal they got even louder. When we scored our 3rd they went crazy.”When the game was over (30 mon after the match finished) he had to exit the locker room too see what was going happing on the field. The stadium was still full of split fans rooting and singing for Hajduk.
Don’t see that shit in Zagreb.
I did read the article, and my point was a former Hajduk player got busted for match fixing–not all people associated with Hajduk are angels.
Hajduk’s former players ruined the club, stole from it, and I wouldn’t put it past them to fix matches as well. That’s how they avoided relegation. 🙂
Dinamo has dominated the league and won 8 successive championships. The gap is so huge in fact that Dinamo- Hajduk is no longer a real ‘rivalry.’ Because to be a ‘rival,’ you actually have to win championships from time to time and pose a credible threat.
The only real ‘rivalry’ I see right now is Hajduk – Lokomotiva. They are both vying for 2nd, and go up against each other in the Cup final.
Dude , we got rid of the star , but U dummies still keep your commie – dinamo name ! Ehh , your so gone it’s funny ! U just can’t be from Beautiful Split ! Please Lord , i Pray ! Give this Dude some Brains so he will change his hashtag ! Naprid Bili !!!
@split and @croatia vs Antwerp
If you read the articals and not just scan then for the word hajduk you would know that the arrival states:
“Nenad Pralija, the former Hajduk Split, Espanyol and Reggina player and a Croatian international (11 caps) is arrested under suspicion of being part of match fixing during his spell as RNK Split sporting director.”
That he played for hajduk but it was for his actions when he was sporting director of RNK Split.
Also in the same artical it stated that:
“Hajduk Split president Hrvoje Maleš arranged a meeting with Željko Širić, a former international referee and vice president of the Croatian FA, and Stjepan Djedović, head of referees. They asked for €90,000 to provide Hajduk “a fair refereeing”. The whole action lasted for more than two months, and at the end, Maleš came to the meeting with a briefcase filled with €30,000 of marked notes “to pay an advance”. The money was exchanged, hands shaken, and the agreement was final. What Širić and Djedović didn’t know was the fact that Maleš came to the meeting wired. The whole thing was set up made in conjunction with USKOK. Širić and Djedović naïvely fell for it, and are today in prison, waiting for trial.”
Which means Hajduk is trying to stop this. That right there tells you refs don’t call fair games against hajduk. Hajduk set up these refs to go to JAIL.
Which is all here: http://www.thefootballramble.com/blog/entry/match-fixing-rears-its-head-in-croatia
Obviously you didn’t read it and just scanned threw it. Hajduk is not mentioned anywhere nor it’s players for match fixing.
In the above message forgot to sign off. Bog Hrvati dinamo I hns
Too funny. You and your team is the commie loving one. Look at your history moron. Truth hurts, hey. Drink your coors light you dipshit. Enjoy second place. Remember Dinamo was and is the better team.
Split , PLEASE PLEASE Change your hashtag . U r a Stupid dipshit who dosen’t know any History about either Team ! Look back in History , & then tell us arrogant Mamic/dinamo has Always been the Better team ! It isn’t true U Pizda ! Read some History if U can before U open your pie hole , U Commie Loving Idiot !
Too funny we ask for proof and he gives us recycled garbage plus as Croatia vs Antwerp points out an article is about Hajduk. Of course that idiot Cico jumps in. Dinamo is the better team. Always has been. Get over it. Hopefully you guys can win tomorrow with the refs help.
Bog Hrvati Dinamo I Hns.
In one of the articles, a former Hajduk player was busted for match-fixing. Oh, so that’s how Hajduk has been able to avoid relegation so far. 🙂
None of the articles say Dinamo bought the last 8 years of championships. Stop blaming the refs, Dinamo is the better team.
Finally Another Good Man who Speaks the TRUTH – Torcida Split !!! Spread the Good name of Hajduk my friend ! God Bless U ! Torcida 4 Life ! Bog , Hrvati , Hajduk , i HNS !!!
It’s like any other drug. Once you get you fix you want some more
Even this site did a write up about it.
A good one here. How they don’t give a fuck about it
If its happened befor why not still now??? Just a matter of getting caught
Pa znam da je hajduk sam sebe propastiao. Zato su trebali prodat josip radosevic i ante vukusic
“Kad se igra utakmica za HNS u Zagreb 50% zarade ide u Dinamo.”
Nije Istina. Gdje je dokaz?
Eh Torcida, lako ti je bacati krivicu na drugi klub, umjesto da priznas da Hajduk je sam sebe propastiao.
Incredible you claim those are the facts. You state the refs are paid by Dinamo. I ask for proof. Show me the money, transit number, account, refs involved, show me proof, names. Again you state bs without backing it up. Typical sore Hajduk loser. I feel sorry for you. You must blame everyone else for your place in life.
Zna se da zarada ide u stadium di se igra utakmica. Nebi se drugi gradi onda borili da igra sastav u njihov grad. Malo sutra za tebe. Ali bit će još godinama da se ovo sve napravi.
Tvo “proof” je tu. maybe I should write it in English so you understand. If the refs in the croatian league are so honest and good they why are they not picked for the World Cup? Or the Euro Cup? Because they consistently make bad calls. You must not watch any of te games In the MaxTV Priva Liga or you got bad eye sight.
Ti izazivas Splita zbog “Jedi se” a daj mi onda lijepo objasni kaj znaci “valda” ili “sudidu”? Sve oko kaj si prije napisao (50% ide Zagrebu blah blah) je cista izmisljotina. Essentially this guy is saying the money that Dinamo gets is from the REPKA games. Moj odgovor-malo morgen. Al ajd molim te nastavi sa tim glupostima jer ma fakat ismijavas.
On second thought enjoy second place as the refs will make sure Hajduk gets second place.
Once again thank you for the good laugh. I ask for proof and you cry and offer nothing but excuses. Enjoy third place.
For the past three seasons, Lokomotiva has been playing in the HNL and openly running as Dinamo’s “farm team” with absolutely no problem. Now, they’re in second place and in the cup final and Hajduk is crying foul, saying that Dinamo cannot have two teams in the league and UEFA is agreeing. I heard there is a chance that Lokomotiva will not only not be able to compete in the cup, but will not be allowed to compete in the first division as long as Dinamo is there as well. Any truth to this?
Jedi se??? Pa jesam gladan. Šta bi mi da? Ili si tija reč Jebi se. Pravi Amerikanac šta se zove Hrvat a niti nezna svoj jezik.
Valda ne gledaš utakmice šta se igra u HNL. Kako se sudidu. Ako su naši sudci tako dobri zašto ne sudidu na svetsko prvenstvo ili na europski kup? Zato šta kradedu.
Od kad je Lokomotiv došao u pirvu ligu ni su nikad tukli Dinamo. Ali su tukli sve druga klubova u ligu. Sad če mo vidit kad igradu Dinamo zato njima treba bodova za poč u europsku ligu.
Maybe If Poljud had a proper drainage system it would get games. By the way show us the refs who were paid off, show us the proof. If you don’t have it Jedi se and stop crying.
Da nije za navijači koj dođu iz Dubrovnika, Rijeke, Osjeka, Zadra, Šibenika i Splita ne bi bija rasprodan Zagreb kad igra sastav. Neka se igra svugdje. Šta ove druge grade nemadu Hrvata? Samo Zagreb ima Hrvata?
Kad se igra utakmica za HNS u Zagreb 50% zarade ide u Dinamo. Od 2002 90% utakmica se igralo u Zagrebu. Zašto ne podilidu tu zaradu između sve klubova u HNL??? Oli neka se promini svaki put di se igra utakmica. Nego ne Mamić hoće neka se sve utakmice igra u Zagreb da Dinamo može zaradit.
Only reason dinamo has the money to pay for all these player is because the national team plays all there games in Zagreb.
Explain. This I have to hear as I almost pissed my pants from the ignorance this statement conveys. I can’t wait to hear this.
I stated facts. Blabbering is making shit up and not having proof to back it
You fool. Hajduk sucks. No one is jealous of Hajduk. Thank you for the good laugh. 🙂
The best teams always have the most haters and they always try to find a way to make there team look better.
Ummm isn’t that exactly what you’re doing in your blabbering against Dinamo? Loser.
Dinamo can cheat and steal all they want. They will never have as many fans as Hajduk has. Dinamo pays off the refs. HNL is jealous of Hajduk because there games draw the biggest crowds. Last year when Hajduk played dinamo in Zagreb 4000 fans showed up to the game and 2,500 of them were from Torcida. There’s a reason Hajduk has the Oldest and Best Firm. We live for Hajduk and die for them.
Hajduk is the only team in the history of soccer to have 10 players start for the national team and the 11th was the goalie on the other team.
Even te great croatian soccer player Bernard Vukas said if he could live agian he would only play for Hajduk. He was from Zagreb. The best teams always have the most haters and they always try to find a way to make there team look better.
Only reason dinamo has the money to pay for all these player is because the national team plays all there games in Zagreb. Igro Tudor recently said that he want te team to play in split. Suker said no chance because Mamić is filling his wallet.
Hajduk Živi Vječno. Ne dinamo I nijhovi pugrski navijaći
Also it would be nice to see another team finish in second place for a change 🙂
Victory today oh yeah! They are certainly putting coal in the fire, and steaming towards 2nd place and Victory in Cup.
Won today. In second place. I would love for a Hajduk loss tomorrow. Who knows maybe Europa play for Lokomotiva but it is a long shot.
For this Cup final we should all board the Lokomotiva Train, victory would give the club it’s first Trophy in the HNL, and it would be great to see a smaller club win silverware once in a while.
Yep, victory would be a nice Cinderella tale of “The Little Train That Could.” 🙂
Somewhere out there in Zagreb, there are like 300 people who go to those games every week. I will find one person who considers themselves a Lokomotiva fan.
There are no Lokomotiva fans anywhere, yet alone this website.
I want to see them win the cup, but are there any REAL Lokomotiva fans on the site?
I understand eveything behing naming the team “Dinamo” but who/when/why did someone rename Viktoija to NK Lokomotiva? I know during WWII they wre called FD Crvena Lokomotiva. Doesn’t get more commie-sounding than that, does it? I’m sure it as politically motivated? They also went through like three or four names before that too.
Little Lokomotiva reminds me of the tale “The Little Train That Could,” and victory over Hajduk would be a nice way to finish the tale. And it would give the club it’s first piece of silverware. Choo! Choo! Here they come.
Sounds like a nice story line:)
Tata is from Senj, Primorje.
Mama from Herzegovina.
You’re right. To a degree. Luka, where are your folks from?
Great story. Thanks for sharing.
Current name is GNK Dinamo Zagreb. So Gradanski still lives on……to a degree.
Also my nephews name is Luka and I can’t wait to pass the stories down to him.
We had that argument about the petokraka several times. Let me share my conversations I’ve had with my pok Tata and deda many moons ago.
Deda was a huge Gradanski supporter before the war who wanted nothing to do with HASK or Dinamo. Clearly all the Purgeri who supported Gradanski became dinamovci because of the shared colors and nicknames. When Dinamo took over Maksimir, deda wanted to light the place on fire because it was where HASK played (imagine the Chicago Cubs playing their home games at Comiskey). Through the years he became a dinamovac reluctantly. My tata was born after WWII so he doesn’t remember Gradanski but always loved Dinamo especially since he was 17 when Dinamo put the Grb on which of course was passed onto me in the 80s when I was a tike. Once Dinamo started with the name changes, we always knew there was only one Dinamo and that it was Gradanski’s team. HASK Gradanski? Never. Croatia? Beautiful name but forced onto us without elections. Franjo Tudman? A whole other debate.
@ Antisa you mean Croatia FC hahaha,
“Ima samo jedno sveto ime who rocked the grb when it matters. and it wasn’t the team from Split.”
Well said and get ready for the fireworks now.
Had a discussion with my uncle last night and he argued the name should of been either Hask or Gradanski. Always interesting to hear an old timer perspective on this issue.
Ante B, you are the voice of reason!
HASK Gradanski would be the worst name. That’s like saying FC Celtic Rangers or FC Real Madrid Barcelona. Ima samo jedno sveto ime who rocked the grb when it matters. and it wasn’t the team from Split.
ok thanks im bout to join an apprenticeship and was just curious. but i looked up the company and man what the people wrote looks like they are frauds and the worst electricians in the world, straight mafia lol their rating is horrid.
Josip Gaspar is a mongol bastard. Look at him at Avar shit.
Communists are as red as my ass.
Oh yeah. Bog, Hrvati, GNK Dinamo I Hns.
Ok dipshit. Keep drinking your coor light. Enjoy second place. 🙂
@IvicA and @HG
Agreed about the awful communist team names. The problem with trying to de-communise the Dinamo name and which is why it failed back in the 1990s is that HASK and Gradanski were two completely different and conflicting clubs and cultures before 1945 (HASK had a middle class and university student supprters base, Gradanski was more working class). The new Dinamo team wasn’t really a merger between the two (which is where Tudjman went wrong back in in the 90s), it was more of a forced replacement by the communists with a brand new club although using the old Gradanski strip and relying on Gradanski’s old working class fan base.
There’s a reformed HASK team playing (quite badly) in the second division at present – I wish them well.
Split , please stop Embarassing the Good people of the Real Split , & change your hashtag ! U dipshit Idiot ! Call yourself Zagreb or something ! Please U (Biggest) A-Hole ! Ha ha ha ! Bog , Hrvati , Hajduk , i HNS !!!
Woops. Was it posted in one of the other stories?
Cico you are the biggest idiot on site. Get a life.
Ha ha ha. Your team sucks.
(Croatian Coach Fired !) Figures it would be a former Arrogant Mamic/dinamo player ! He probably needed all that Jagermeister Alcohol to Drown his sorrows for Playing for that Arrogant Team !! Ha ha ha ! Bog , Hrvati , Hajduk , i HNS !!!
Golden child your a little late..
Croatian coach fired for stealing player’s money in Zagreb
Nije Bitno , have a Good time on the Cruise , & spread the Good Name of Hajduk to All ! Bog , Hrvati , Hajduk , i HNS !!!
Wish it would go back to Hask/gradanski but it won’t. They tried but got no where. Commies blueprint all over Croatia.
Lokomotiva. Dinamo. Ugh.
Such awful communist trash names.
Change Lokomotiva back to Viktorija, and change Dinamo back to HAŠK/Građanski.
so, now you are a baller with a basketball jersey……
IVAN ELECTRIC is a godfather of croatiansports.com.
Have a good time, and NAPRID BILI.
Just landed. I will be wearing my petrovic jersey but my croatski isn’t messed up. Lol!!! Alright everybody
Here’s to you and heres to me may we never disagree but if we do fuck you so here’s to me!
I will luka!!
Sretan put and let us know what this cruise is all about. Curious if it will be really like what Ziva thinks.
I’m sure there will be too many of them to actually say hello to, unless you are on a one-week journey. I can only imagine the amount of butchered “her-vat-skee” will be spoken. Plus, please take pictures of any adults wearing jerseys with the name of another person on the back of the shirt. American diaspora, bad croatian-speaking jock sniffers is the best kind of diaspora.
In a plane to Miami to go on this Croatians cruise. Lets see what it’s all about. Ziva I will say hello to all broken Croatian speaking Americans in your name. 😉
Hopefully lokomotiva win.
It would just be too funny if they beat hapless hajduk.
Little Lokomotiva reminds me of the tale “The Little Train That Could,” and victory over Hajduk would be a nice way to finish the tale. And it would give the club it’s first piece of silverware. Choo! Choo! Here they come.
Bog, Hrvati, Lokomotiva i HNS
Can you imagine if Hajduk loses this…..it would mean Hajduk cant even beat Dinamo 2.
Little Dinamo! How they have grown. I would love to see Lokomotive celebrate their centennial season next year with some European cup matches.
Should be a good Final for the Cup ! Bog , Hrvati , Hajduk , i HNS !!!
who is this “ivans electric” company?
