As it is just for fun (i mean that there aren´t too many real options), we can make a poll.

Done. I figure one can choose between 4 and 5 players for the foward positions.

Edit: Let´s just include the strikers and Left wingers in the same choice, as they are the "fowards" while the RM is used for midfielders by Piturca.

I say Marius,Daniel,Adrian,Ciprian and Claudiu.

Niculescu as much as some of you might hate, is the most clinical finishing forward we have..

And I'd want to prepare for any injuries.. I wouldn't take Costea or Bucur who have less experience, rather a Niculescu who walked into Duisberg and lit the back of the goal with 3 goals of the week.

He would be a perfect back up.

i'm surprised that everybody would call M.Niculae after his first NT game in 2 years.

There's something wrong with the poll. It shows 100% beside the first four players.

That´s because it´s a multiple choice poll, and so far every voter has chosen the first 4 players.

Yeah you are right. I guess we were all impressed by his performance and the result of the game helps him too. Besides he is a quality player, who has already played and scored a lot for the NT, and who was one of the biggest prospects of the decade. It´s complelling to imagine him finally making it.

M.Niculae still has to improve though... I think he'd get eaten alive by defenders who are stronger than him physically since that's his main asset and we all know that our opponents in the Euros are all very good

It´s difficult to be stronger than M.Niculae though.

Anyways Marius "stie cu mingea" like Romanians say. He´s not clumsy and knows what to do with the ball.

Let´s see how the rest of strikers (Bucur, Mazilu, Niculescu, Bratu) do in the last 2 months, but IMO M.Niculae has the advantage now for the last spot in the attack.

well... i.E. Boya and Fabbianni definately are for example p

I'm not really in favor of Bratu because tbh he's only useful as striker when we play on counter attacks... he doesn't do well in the box and lacks the instinct of a true striker plus he can't really hold onto the ball really well either...

Bucur is lethal when he gets the ball and can make things happen on his own... one of the better footballers we do have in the squad as he can dribble, pass and score

Niculescu is only good in a well functioning TEAM... he can score goals outta nowhere and is without a doubt the best FK taker we have... against sides who foul alot he'd be quite useful... but like Bratu he's not really dangerous inside the box and we can't depend on Mutu being the only one there

about Mazilu i really have no idea... he's a good striker with a good shot and he has balance but he seems to disappear in bigger games and doesn't move enough to be the single striker upfront

There´s something wrong with the poll. It shows that David voted for Zicu

There must be a nasty virus affecting the site.

It's simple. Mutu and Marica just have to be there. Marius Niculae can be very helpful, as he can finish better than the others on the list. Between Daniel Niculae and Gigel Bucur, I'd take the first because of the physical ability and because of his experience... And I don't think any of the others are good enough p

Bucur is quicker, more technical and a better finisher than D.Niculae

D.Niculae is just taller and stronger with european experience

Niculae scored goals in France, UEFA cup and the NT. Bucur only in Liga I.That is a big difference.

thats because D.Niculae played for Rapid and is one of Piturca's favourite players

Bucur did only play in Liga1 but atleast he managed to become top scorer there and leads the table again

I really don't rate Bucur very highly. He's ok...
