Romania "B" Trials Dec '08

So, guys, since we're less than a month away, let's each put down on paper (well, cyberpaper p) our own squad, either the 36 or the 20, or any number for that matter, as you prefer...

GKs:

Pantilimon, Tatarusanu

DFs:

Homei, Maftei, Muresan, Galamaz, Gaman, Marius Constantin, Panin, Senin

MFs:

Torje, M. Roman, Ad. Cristea, Lazar, Ropotan, Cr. Tanase, Prepelita, Szekely

FWs:

G. Bucur, B. Stancu, Onofras, Burdujan, Deac

I tried to only look for players under 30, although it's hard... especially in defense. Are there no good young LBs in Romania?

Potential problems: DF and LM... Without Mutu and Chivu the left flank suffers a lot, as the best players there would be ones usually playing RM. I think the attack is decent, and the lack of creativity in MF could be over... But it is Piti. Still waiting for Dan Petrescu's turn

"Standard" Team:
------------------------------Pantilimon
-----------------------------(Tatarusanu)

Maftei------------Galamaz-----------M.Constantin----------Panin
(Homei)----------(Muresan)-----------(Gaman)-------------(Senin)

-----------------------C. Lazar
Torje-----------------(Ropotan)-------Cr. Tanase-----------Szekely
(M. Roman)---------------------------(Ad. Cristea)--------(Deac)

-----------------------B. Stancu
-----------------------(Onofras)------G. Bucur
----------------------------------------(Burdujan)

Of course, this team would get massacred, but I believe the scores are inconsequential.

M.Constantin doesn´t play since ages, due to physical problems. I don´t know too much Oros, a CB from Brasov, but his team has a good defensive record and he seems to be in Piturca pre-list, so I think he´s doing his job.

I still have some doubts regarding the fullback positions. Dananae, Buhus and Popete are some options for the right.


Szekely doesn´t convince me on the left, he´s always better on the right. Maybe we can try with Ilie Iordache as left winger.


Ummm let´s see, I´d do something like this right now, as provisional:

GKs: Pantilimon, Stancioiu, "Keeper"

Defenders: "Right back", "Left back", Panin, Galamaz, Muresan, Gaman, Oros

Midfielders: Prepelita, Radoi, Tames, Tanase, Apostol/Paduretu, Roman, Szekely, Deac, I.Iordache, Mara

Forwards: Costea, Onofras, Burdujan, A.Piturca, Bucur


Obviously that´s just provisional, as I still have some doubts on some players.

Constantin doesn't play because of "physical" problems? I dunno bout that... in his last game for Rapid Buc. against Wolfsburg he was terribly booed and whistled by his own fans and ever since he wasn't available anymore... there were also mad rumors that he will leave the club at the winter break

Shit, I'd forgotten Costea... Probably because I had a hard time reducing my provisional list to 22... In that case Costea instead of Szekely in my line-up... And in that case Torje can stay leader of the U-21 for a while, getting good practice there too.

Yeah, Buhus is one of the players I had looked at for RB... And Oros as CB.

I still think Piti's formation doesn't fit our players for some reason...

A 3-"4"-3 is tempting for this tournament, with these selections

Let's see:

Tatarusanu-Maftei, Galamaz, Panin-Lazar-Szekely, Ad. Cristea, Cr. Tanase-Onofras, Bucur, Costea
Still leaving LM poorly covered... I don't know Iordache well, but maybe he can be a solution.

Constantin is "officially" injured. There can be other reasons.

Even tough this tournament is to test players, i wouldn´t leave the experienced guys out, because then it wouldn´t be the NT but a trial, it wouldn´t be taken seriously, and the new guys wouldn´t know their real teammates any better.
I don´t see the use of taking aging players either unless they are a solution right now.

Therefore players like Lobont, Ogararu, Radoi, Goian, Nicolita and M. Niculae should be there if available.

Keepers: Lobont, Pantilimon.

Defenders: Ogararu, Panin, Goian, Radoi, Galamaz, Gaman, Latovlevic/Mardare

Mids: Nicolita, Torje, Szekely, Lazar, Ropotan, Muresan, Tames, Tanase, Deac, Prepelita, Curtean.

Attackers: Bucur, Costea, Niculae, A. Piturca, Burdujan.

We don´t have great left backs here but we have Rat, Sepsi, and Radu so it isn´t a problem.

Sepsi and Sapunaru can´t be there. It´s only for internal players since it isn´t in a FIFA date.

Romania will most likely not participate (political reasons).

If they don´t participate there, they should play a couple of games with other rivals.

Poland will have a training camp in Turkey in December. They will play a friendly against Serbia on Dec 14th. We should try to play them if Piti really needs a friendly. Our next competitive match is in March. We have a friendly date on Feb 11th. I don't think we really need to play a friendly now. FRF agreed to participate in the Oman tournament for financial, not sporting reasons.

Yep, these tournaments in Arab countries are always cancelled at the end. That only speaks about the FRF incompetence.

I think we need it for sporting reasons too. A big part of the NT is based on Liga I players and it´s clear we need new solutions. Some players like Costea have shown their growth in a few games, which proves once again that the NT is a new thing and that players need time to get used to it, and only one game before the Serbia one is not enough to test everything and everyone.

If Iran wouldn't have been involved, Romania would still be preparing to leave for Oman.

This is the second time we have pulled out of a friendly against Iran. According to unofficial sources it seems the Ministry of Foreign Affairs pressured FRF not to play against a country whose leader said "Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth".

But we're not the only ones doing this: Ukraine, Egypt and the Czech Republic also canceled friendlies against Iran lately.

It seems we will be playing Croatia (Sport365).
