Something is weird in all this...Costea, Popa and Marius Niculae were all originally called up (Cristea too if im not mistaken)...He went from an experimental squad to basically a simple squad.

Our "pessimistic" theories are confirmed.



There won´t be surprises in Euro squad unless there are some injuries.

From what I hear, Costea made the "lotul largit" along with all those other players.

The midfield is a disaster.

I hope to be wrong but with this squad we´ll make a "Steaua in CL" in Euros...and we´ll return to home with 1 point in the best of the cases, and playing boring football.

And I know we got the Euro ticket with these players, but still...

Yeah, invite them, but just don't play them please Piti.. the likes of Ovi Petre and Nicolita are not good enough.

i hope you are not right but it sounds atleast possible
i don't understand how some of us like Piti's squad??!! Piti doesn't know what friendlies are for ....try out some new players, the score is not important for god's sake!!!!!

@Claudiu: don't take it personal but please leave the "line up making" to somebody else, you make them most times so completely wrong and without a sense. Mutu as LM can't work, most good teams would eat us alive. it's not even worth thinking about such a line up. your posts still got much much better

I think we should trust Piturca.

Claudiu, you must have serious problems putting Mutu on the same line as Chivu.

Exactly to both counts... And Chivu on the right? Really?

Last game (vs Albania) Piturca played with:

-------------Lobont
------Tamas---------Goian
Ogararu---------------------Rat
-------Cocis------Margaritescu
Petre----------Dica---------D.Niculae
--------------Marica



For this game, I predict:

--------------Lobont
------Tamas-----------Goian
Contra------------------------Radu
--------Ov.Petre*-----Chivu
Nicolita---------Dica---------Mutu
---------------Marica


*Codrea as alternative


or


-------------Lobont
------Tamas----------Goian
Contra-----------------------Radu
------Cocis*--Ov.Petre--Chivu
-------Dica**---------Mutu
--------------Marica


*Codrea as alternative

**Cocis as alternative



As it´s very probable that Piturca will use the 3 DMs formation in Euro, it´s logical to think that he will play with that formation in preparation games. So I think Piturca will use in Israel a similar line-up to the last one I made.


Chivu had physical problems lately btw.

Dica as "RM"?

Torje is a good prospect but he hasn't proven himself just yet....Let's see how he does at Dinamo and then we'll see if he should be a starter for our National Team.

With these players the best that can be done IMO is:

Lobont

Ogararu-Tamas-Goian-Radu

O.Petre-Chivu

Cocis-Dica-Mutu

Marica

I wouldn´t count Daniel Niculae out as he´s doing well and he is one of Piturca´s favorites.

D.Niculae has disappointed me in the NT games... he's been an average passer and not lethal enough upfront... maybe the roles Piturca assigned for him dont work well

I'd put Marica on the right wing - I've been thinking this for ages. And somebody else in the middle, D.Niculae, Mazilu, whoever. Marica does well attacking from the wing, ie game vs. Turkey last year. Also I think he played on the wing against Spain and did alright.

Just a thought though. Rumaniacs team will probably be playing on Wednesday with Nicolita instead of Cocis.
