Romania vs Srbija || 2009-03-28 || The Spring Derby

We'll meet the team we played most games against and also the team against which we played our first international game.

First international

Yugoslavia 1 - 2 Romania
(Belgrade, Yugoslavia; 8 June 1922)

This is a crucial game for our qualification.

The major concern is Chivu for this match. We absolutely need him to recover from his muscle problems and be our captain!

Francisc Ronay scored the first NT goal in 1922.

Yugoslavia was the first we beat, and the first team that beat us.

Serbia can be beaten, of course we have a bad history with Yugoslavia but as you can see it's only Serbia * getting smaller and smaller * and Croatia si way better then them.
I'm more afraid of a 0-0/any tie after we lead 1-0, 2-0 rather then a loss.
You can never know what to expect from this team, as long as Piturca is there, I mean you play Holland at a Euro when they are 1st place guaranteed, they play like in a training match and you mostly defend, with Lithuania you treat them from up high then you lead a wasted France 2-0 only to give them space.

More afraid of the game v. Austria in Klagenfurt, if anybody would have investigated, Romania doesn't have a Wednesday match at home ( and even away i think ) that comes after a free Saturday? Austria has this advantage playing at home after Romania has a important game with Serbia a few days before.

I'm pessimistic about the qualification, though I was pretty sure before the first match that, except for the thing Austria came from a weak slot, this group can be won and no points to be lost except with France and Serbia Away.

Cheers man. The problem is the ticket delivery to the UK which costs about 8 times the price of the ticket, so I need to see if I can pick it up from the ticket office on the 27th, instead. I'm waiting on their email.

GSP: Max Nicu will be called to the squad even though he didn't receive the citizenship yet.

Well I don't really understand why it takes so much time since he's parents/one of them are Romanian. In this case I thought he will receive it very fast. Plus, there's also an interest in all this.

Those are the players playing abroad called by Piti :

Defenders: Cosmin Contra (Getafe CF), Cristian Săpunaru (FC Porto), Cristian Chivu (FC Internazionale Milano), Mirel Rădoi (Al-Hilal), Răzvan Raţ (FC Şahtior Doneţk), Mihai Neşu (FC Utrecht)
Midfielders: Paul Codrea (AC Siena), Răzvan Cociş (FC Lokomotiv Moscova), Maximilian Nicu (Hertha BSC), Florentin Petre (Terek Groznîi)
Strikers: Ciprian Marica (VfB Stuttgart), Adrian Mutu (Fiorentina) şi Ionuţ Mazilu (Arsenal Kiev).


As Lucescu said a day or two ago I would have called Ghioane also.

what happened to Ghioane?

i have to admit that this time Piti called the right players, it's the "best" we have right now...

Nothing happened to Ghioane,but I believe he could be a useful player in our midfield at least as a sub if not a 1st team player.

I believe is good Nicu has been called up and if he doesn't play at least he will meet the other players and see the atmosphere there.

yeah, Ghioane is the only one i miss from abroad...it's a pity that we don't have a really good target striker playing abroad and some good midfielders...Cocis, Petre, Mazilu and Codrea is just not good enough or too average to reach for the top.

Petre did okay in the last games. He scored against France and did good against Croatia. We have to admit that there aren´t better alternatives to him for now.

Codrea is underrated by many of us. Tactically he´s excellent and he doesn´t make big mistakes. He isn´t brilliant but useful. He´s not the problem in our NT.

it's definitely good to have him but if you look at our problems, which i don't have to mention, he can't be the solution next to Radoi, Chivu, Muresan or whoever plays alongside him. Petre on the bench yes, as a starter no. i don't care if he scored against France...

I totally agree with you.And the same is available for Nicolita.

Nicu will replace one of those players. And if Mitea recovers his form will have a decent line-up overall.

Nicu is still a big ? in the NT. We have to see how he adapt and how he performs in the position where Piti places him.

Yeah Petre and Nicolita are a problem...but who plays instead of them? They are more regular than the rest and that´s why they go to the NT. Just look at Szekely or Herea.

When Mitea or Zicu are at 100% and Nicu shows his level we´ll see, but for now...
