I wonder on what will Piti base his Frutti Fresh choices since the league is on hiatus.

Then I'll inform u about him.

Was our best U21 player the last few years. Has a wonderful set of skills on the ball, the best comparison would be someone like MArko Marin, but he's about 1,5 inches taller with about the same speed and maybe better control(but also 2 years older than Marko). Very creative and lively with the ball, a real talent.

Currently he's on loan at Greuther Fruth by way of Bochum. I believe he's valued very highly by Bochum, I think their asking price for him is about 5 million Euro's(thats how much Dinamo Zagred said the asking price was for him, when they inquired about him).

Greuther is known as place to groom a player and thats probably why he is there. I expect he will be in the 1 Bundesliga next season.

I hope this helps you

P.S. - the only knock on him is that he's a bit thin and needs more filling out. Thus the reason he's at Greuther Furth

yeah but still... I mean he might be a talent but I wouldn't feel well knowing some guy from a lower level league would make my NT... especially considering Croatia has amazing talents... its just a bid of a shame that your domestic league isn't that good

Bah, it´s not that important. It´s a friendly and they can test him here.

If I´m not wrong we have called 2nd division players in the past too.


I guess Cocis will be starter again I´m concerned on what Piturca will do with CBs and DMs in this game. The most logical would be to play with Tamas and Chivu in the defence (as long as Goian and Ghionea are suspended against Serbia) and maybe Radoi and Muresan as DMs.

Cocis being a starter wouldn't be that problematic if he was played at a position he can play at... as sucks as CM/DM and he's likely not good enough for an attacking position and Piturca considers him a utility player

Only because Cocis would play any position under Piturca doesn't mean he'd do well there

Cocis was a total disaster in the game vs France (in Constanta). To play with Cocis in midfield is to play with someone that gets the ball and doesn´t know what to do with it. He loses it constantly.
Piturca complains that he has no more options, but the reality is that he doesn´t even try new things. To play with Radoi, Muresan and Cocis in midfield means 0 creativity.


And we´ll depend of the luck again.

well Radoi can be creative but the problem is that except for Mutu and Marica, nobody can do anything with it... a long ball to Nicolita is a lost ball. and we definately can't keep possession with Cocis in there, all he can do is fight and dribble... his passing isn't the worst but he's not a teampasser

Radoi and Muresan would be a real pain for any creative midfield in the world, but we need someone who can do something with the ball to join them. I have my hopes on Tanase as Piti liked him a lot, but we would still need someone better than Nicolita on the right.

The most important thing will be to have both Mutu and Marica fit for the game, as they are way above the rest in terms of quality and experience. This is not easy because they´ve both been having problems.

Tanase is not a creative player by any means though...

Well, compared to Cocis... This guy never even made Divizia A (as it was called) before leaving to Sheriff, right?

Maybe not, but he is great with the ball, he can dribble, he can cross, he doesn´t give the ball away every time he gets it(like Cocis), so he can add creativity to our midfield. As long as that N 10 doesn´t show up we need other options.

Tames could be that player right now... Aliuta sadly struggles too much with his club... Prepelita doesn't seem ready for this job already
