Romania Euro NT - Defensive Midfielders

we got

Ov.Petre
Ropotan
Margaritescu

that you may consider "pure Dms"

then theres

Codrea
C.Lazar
Cocis
Prepelita
Grigore
Sepsi

who are "fake" Dms aka deeplying playmakers etc.

Muresan
D.Stoica
Chivu
Radoi

players that naturally played other positions but also can play DM

what system do you prefer?

what combination might be the most suitable?

who should be the back ups of the regulars?

Actually I far prefer a classic 4-4-2 to any DM system... but Chivu and Radoi can certainly handle it in a 4-2-3-1 system...

Codrea and Ovidiu Petre should be the back-ups... Ov. Petre has played relatively well lately (after his red card, actually p)... Cocis isn't quite a DM, he's better at attacking, hence he should play there. Margaritescu is the most likely to get red-carded, especially in such games, I wouldn't take him. Ropotan is good, maybe as a reserve-status player in the squad (eg like the 3rd GK), though I doubt he'd have any room.

Chivu, Radoi, Ov.Petre, Codrea...these will be our DMs, plus Cocis.

Codrea isn't good at attacking nor special at defending... he can organize a game and works his ass off... a player that benefits the flow of the game rather than attack or defend...

I hope Piturca will give a chance to Ghioane. Just having him in the squad would be something.

I think it´s time to stick to what Piturca will take to the Euro. Testing time is over and only 3-4 spots are open. The only players that still have a slight chance are the ones of the B team.

It´ll be Codrea, Petre, Chivu and Radoi, and considering Radoi and Chivu can also be backup defenders there might be reom for someone else, that will most likely be Margaritescu. Lazar is in need of a miracle and Ghioane needs a couple of persons to die in order to get a spot.

Lazar has still a chance, but he showed a low form in the last month that phucked up a good part of his chances.

I even think that Piturca prefers Margaritescu to him.


I don´t discard Prepelita to be in the final list.

If Prepelita can keep up playing the way he has until now, he has a good chance.

Yeah but we have enough destroyers with Radoi and Petre, + Codrea and Chivu being mainly defensive. Someone with more offensive qualities like Lazar, Prepelita or Ghioane would be a better option.

Ropotan is a complete defensive midfielder. He can both defend and attack. His attacking abilities haven't been excellent so far mainly because he tries too hard and hurries his moves instead of taking his time.

Ropotan isn't mature enough for the seniors... hell he's one of the most immature players I've ever encountered... his dives are dramatic, his dribbles extremely hectic and his defending's the same

he has incredible potential but the tactical awareness and experience of a 10 year old

it is realistic... Piturca must be blind to overlook Torje's performance against CFR... he pretty much defender more than the RB and put alot of pressure on CFR

shockingly he even went into physical battles and won some

Midfielders chosen by the forum:

Chivu: 100%

O.Petre: 88%

Ghioane: 88%

Cocis: 77%

Codrea: 55%

Dica: 100%

Torje: 55%

and a tie between Petre and Nicolita with 44% altough both could go considering O. Petre´s injury.
