Contra and Alin Stoica are injured. Daniel Niculae was dropped because he hasn't been playing recently.

Mazilu would have looked good in that squad.

Piturca should have given a few more call-ups seeing as this is a squad for 2 games including a friendly. I'm happy that Ovidiu Petre is there though, he will probably start in Radoi's place.

Suprises with Trica and Matei, what do you guys think of these two?

We should win this match judging by our current form.

Probably line up:

--------------------Lobont--------------------
-P.Marin-----D.Goian-------Chivu--------Rat---
---------Ov.Petre-------------Munteanu-------
-Fl.Petre-------------Dica---------Mutu-------
--------------------Marica--------------------

I think Codrea gets the position over Ov. Petre... Fl. Petre on the right sucks... maybe Trica gets his spot hopefully...

Matei is a right defender. I´m surprised with his call-up. P.Marin and him will be the options for that position.

I´m glad to see Trica there.

would be the ideal formation with D. Munteanu entering in the 2nd half

I don't really rate P. Codrea tbh but he always started

We have to win this game. It´s very important.

I´m willing to bet that Dorinel will start now that he is playing full games for Vaslui. O.Petre is a Piturca favourite and he combines well with dorinel so he has chances against Codrea.
On the right midfield i hope to see Nicolita over Petre as i don´t see chances for anyone else.

The addition of Trica is probably a replacement for Stoica as Matei is for Contra, so Piturca is looking to add a playmaker to the squad. That´s really good news cause an organized midfield is the only thing we are missing.

Overall with all the absences it´s a good squad.

yes I agree... I think there'll be 2 questions with positions: Nicolita or F. Petre and D. Munteanu or Ov. Petre...

Piturca has always relied on P. Codrea so thats why I'm very sure that he'll get a starting spot for sure...

I don't really know the deal about him though... he's too weak to defend, not a good scorer and his set ups leave alot to desire... he's just okay imo

everytime i saw Codrea he played well, he's a good player and adds atleast a little bit creativity to our midfield (if you consider that he's a DM) and can make good passes.

how good is this Matei? somebody saw some games with him?

our midfield is so bad/weak, would've been nice to have Lazar, Stoica, Cernat, Radoi, Plesan, Szekely..... there, but hey, we are Romania, we can't have a squad without 10 players missing because of injuries

Codrea definately is doing fairly good but I don't think he's able to help our team against really tough opponents... at a certain point he isn't efficiant enough to be in this position... if he really was such a good player we wouldn't need D. Munteanu still since they both serve a similar cause

I actually have no idea about Matei... I've seen him in quite a few games but he never really grabbed my attention that much that I'd have followed him...

btw I actually don't consider our midfield to be that weak aside of maybe the RM position but we could certainly do better

well, most of our "midfielders" are strikers like Mutu and Dica, it would be nice to have a real playmaker, a good RM and somebody like Dorinel, just younger.

i realized that it's been a long time since we were down 1 goal, would be interesting to see how our team would react on such a situation...
i'm really curious by the way how we will do against Germany, a very good test for us, a pity that we can't try in this game Stoica and some other "new" names

I must say that I like the idea of playing with so many forwards because it means that we really go for the goal and not just sit back and defend...anyways you can see how drastic our problem is when you actually check the latest line ups

Muresan played as CB for Gloria many times, D. Stoica also did play as natural CB too i think, Radoi was a CB and we even tried Chivu as DM

at a time our whole squad consisted of Attackers and Defenders, we barely had real midfielders at all

it seems to work but 2 qualitiy midfielders more would be still very welcomed, if we play with more midfielders it wouldn't mean automatically that we sit back, it could be even better for our whole game! maybe Stoica could take Munteanu's role in the midfield if it's true that he learned to defend in the last years...offensively i don't have doubts that he can do the job.

I didn't mean it in a negative way... just that we didn't have any real midfielders there

Nowadays, no one can field only one main XI because of the diversity of the opponents as well as due to the fact that there are many more tough challengers. Codrea is excellent for games when you have to be very careful tactically and when you want a balance between an attacking and defending game-plan.

Having said that, our midfield does need to be revamped. In pure (defending) midfielders, we're O.K. We have Radoi (when fit), Codrea, Ov. Petre and even Muresan and D. Stoica or Chivu if necessary. Nevertheless, the ACM, RM and playmaker positions are still up for grabs. I hope some of our "lost ones" (Cocis, Cernat, A. Stoica, Sanmartean) and some U21 will fill that void.

As for Costea, if he would work on his strength and speed, he would be an interesting solution for the RM position. Herea could also play on the Left, if he confirms at Rapid.

People also forget about Prepelita. He could be an interesting solution for our midfield. He could really be the one replacing Dorinel.

Costea is one, if not the best dribbler currently in Liga1 at the moment... he easily gets past defenders and I must say that he's quite quick and strong as well... his weakness is the passing and shooting... he sometimes makes bad decisions or does hasty plays that end up at the opposition... but I think we can't judge him properly since his whole team is playing quite bad... but he really stands out 2 me

Herea didn't start a game for Rapid now, last game he was a spectator and I'm not sure if he was injuried or not

Prepelita might be a huge talent but this guy has done almost nothing at Craiova now... he's been invisible in many games and he's a freaking cm... his great ball control and technique didn't help craiova one bid so far
