The World Cup final: Faroe Islands vs Romania (September 10th)

Nothing more to add. I just hope that we win 0,5-0 to avoid sinking ourselves deeper and wait until our best players are back.

how serious is Marica's injury? is there any chance that Piturca leaves after our win against the Faroe Islands? i really need/want a change of air, somebody who's fresh...it can't be that he keeps on making mistakes since 3 years (of course he did a lot of good things too, but with Piti we won't be ever more than good average) we even predict hours/days before the kick off. we knew this wouldn't work...

after this game i would like this line up (yeah, i like to dream):

Lobont

Contra/Sapunaru - Radoi - Goian - Rat

Ghioane - Lazar - Chivu

Szekely/Contra - Mutu

Marica

Deac has to be in the squad too...

and please somebody teach our players how to pass!!!! you can see even in this line up that we don't have many attacking winger/centr. midfield options...

Dica, Torje and even Nicolita are better options than Contra for that position.


Anyways I wish to know what Piturca wants to do this Wednesday in Faroe.

Tamas wasn´t ready to play yesterday imo. And not only physically but mentally too. When he´s not mentally focused Tamas makes a lot of mistakes. We should have played with Moti or Radoi next to Goian.

Only thing I know is that Sandu said that Piturca would surely leave in the case of a loss.

On Saturday he (or Lupescu I don´t remember) said that they will treat Piturca issue after Faroe game.

Dragomir announced that Piti's career as a NT coach is over. But we all know who Dragomir is.

I personally believe that Piti will resign after the Feroe Islands game because of his attitude and the fact that he didn't like the reactions after the Euro 2008 elimination. He also denied signing a new contract, meaning he could possibly qualify our team for the WC and not participate in the final tournament. All these signs show that he's not very attached to his place at the helm of the NT.

D.Niculae stayed in Romania due to familiar problems.

It´s a mistake to play without Dica.

Who´s gonna score? The only one I see there with real scoring capacity is Niculae. Costea is unproven. Cocis and Aliuta don´t use to score, and Lazar and Codrea have other tasks. We depend too much on M.Niculae or some header by Goian.

Having said that, and if these players are well positioned on the field by Piturca, this line-up looks better than the one on Saturday.

It could be a very good formation with work. Without it, we don´t know how they will do, as Nesu Costea, Aliuta and Lazar are all unexperienced in the NT and not used to play with eachother.

At least it´s good that Piturca makes changes and that this team will be very technical and should treat the ball well.

Mircea Lucescu could be Piturca replacement if Piti is finally fired.

no surprise...Shakthar is having a really bad season in the league and could fire Lucescu quite soon, i guess they wouldn't have a problem with letting him go.

i don't know if he's a good solution for us but atleast it's a change and he seems like a coach who believes in his teams to reach the top. he's also a great tactician who would surely call Ghioane and i believe he could solve our "no creativity" problem in midfield. negative about him could be that he's always searching for excuses and that he's known for playing very defensive...

Before, I would have paid to see him coach our team. Now I'm not sure anymore. His son, Razvan, and Sabau might be better choices. One thing is sure, though, he'd surely motivate our guys like few coaches have done so far.
