Nothing new. I see Piturca goes with continuity. Let´s wait for the local players.




If he calls Fl.Petre and Nicolita and not Szekely, Piti is officially idiot.


D.Niculae is injured AFAIK.

it doesn't make sense... why would he call up 3 Rbs? Also didn't F.Petre announce to retire after the Euros?

Maybe he considers Sapunaru as CB. Or maybe this is just a "pre-list" and some of them don´t make it finally.

GICA is right, what is he after? Petre? He is 33 for god´s sake! Cocis totally screwed up in the Euro. How is the team going to improve then if he keeps every failed player and doesn´t give any space for new faces?

Sapunaru didn't play CB in ages... I really doubt it...

and I agree... Cocis and F.Petre have nothing left to do in the NT... we got Szekely, F.Costea(when fit) and I believe that C.Lazar could do big things this year

I'm sure Piturca will want to test Szekely against the likes of Fl. Petre and Sapunaru against Contra.

Cocis had a bad tournament, he himself admitted it, but he can improve. We still need him.

I don't know if we really need Cocis... he's versatile, atleast for us, but definately not the best in whatever position we use him

In any case it´s stupid to give all the chances in the world to Cocis and not even one to Ghioane.

Cocis is supposed to be an attacking midfielder, but he has done very little in that aspect in the NT. He isn´t a defensive asset either.

Piturca "stated" very clearly that he thinks we have nothing remarcable in the offensive department aside from Mutu when he chose the horrible tactics of the Euro. He gave up every offensive intention in order to get 0-0´s.
And yet, he calls the same players. It´s like saying "We have mediocre attackers, and no other romanian can be less bad than them"

well... Adi Cristea has an attitude problem and Dica doesn't seem to be Piturca's favourite either... I just hope that Szekely, F.Costea etc. can turn this crap around

Yeah but they won´t shine right away, they´ll need chances to get into the atmosphere and demands of the NT. And the process must start right now!

Szekely, Costea and Deac should be the first ones upfront, but we should also use the technical midfielders we have, such as Ghioane, Lazar, Herea, Plesan or Prepelita, and never play with such defensive central midfields including 2 of Radoi-Chivu-Codrea-O.Petre. We need to start building the game from midfield and drop the stupid long balls and wasting of passes.

I don't mind the 2 DM tactic but we'd need an AM infront of them to make the game... both Radoi and Chivu are good passers too so its not like we'd be horrible there

"Nu putea prinde Euro fiindcă el n-a jucat la Ajax, dar Contra şi Săpunaru erau titulari la echipele lor. Pentru amicalul cu Letonia i-am chemat pe toţi trei fiindcă vreau să încerc să joc cu Contra mai avansat."

"[Ogararu] couldn't go to the Euro because he didn't play with Ajax, but Contra and Sapunaru were main eleven players for their teams. I called all three of them for the Latvia friendly because I want to play with a more advanced Contra"

Piturca


Maybe Piturca finally wants to play with Contra in front of a RB.

Piturca dropped Fl. Petre from the list as he wants to play with Contra in the RM position.

On another note, all the options for the left back position are out for this friendly(Rat and Chivu injured and Radu with the U-21). Prosport says Piturca will call Pulhac, Nesu or Marin.
