Where is Dragos to comment this?


The only good thing of the list is the return of Tanase. Deac should be there too.

Tanase shouldn't be in this squad either... its a friendly and Tanase is barely fit yet... he's no semi-god either as some people make him out to be. Lucescu should have called up players that are doing well right at this moment. Nicolae Grigore, Daniel Niculae and Tanase are not among them... again no Prepelita, Costea or Sanmartean who imo is the best footballer in Romania right now

For me it´s important he gets minutes. In fact, I don´t know why he was changed so early yesterday.

And he´s clearly better than the rest of midfielders.



Grigore over Lazar is a weird thing.

I wonder if he neglected Rapid players because he didn't want to be accused of favoritism

PMC... I agree Sanmartean is a very good player, but Lucescu lacks the balls to call a player from the last placed team. Imagine what the press would do to him p But yeah... Sanmartean should have been called ahead of Grigore and Tanase atm.

I can tell you the starting line-up now:

Coman-Maftei,Radoi,Chivu,Rat-Roman,Apostol,Ghioane,Varga-Marica,Niculae

And you know what this means? We're missing out on 2012, that's what.

Sanmartean isnt just very good... he'd be on a level like Mutu if it weren't for his various injuries

I mean, Sanmartean plays for Bistrita. Props to him, if he chose it because it was his first senior team... But did no one else want him? That seems to be the case. If he'd be as good as Mutu 50% of the time, when he's not injured, he'd play for a midtable team in say the top 5 championships or the "big 8" in Romania.

I wonder why Urziceni didn't want him. I'm sure he'd shine there.

Sanmartean didn't play a game for 90 minutes in years before he went to Gloria Bistrita... he was too much of a risk for most teams and couldn't get a proper deal with Steaua and CFR.

Sanmartean at Bistrita is the best passer and dribbler in Romania... theres not a single other player who manages to create as many decisive passes like he does. He makes the other footballers look really bad actually but Bistrita as a whole seems to benefit from his experience.

I will not even bother to comment the selection anymore. Not only we will not qualify in the next campaign, we will get humiliated by losing against minnows and get crushed by any decent team with the current selection. It's unbelievable for me that nobody seems to care about it: the press, the fans and the federation seems to tolerate his selection and tactics. We have exactly the NT that we deserve. Sandu will not sack him after the initial crap results, he will wait until it's too late, just like he did with Piturca. What sucks the most is that the usual excuses will be found after we will fail miserably: we had no better players, etc. When in fact, we seem to have enough quality players to assemble a competitive team, just that we were "blessed" with a blind, retarded coach, that treats the team like a showcase for his favs.

As for Samnartean, he did have offers from other clubs too, at least from Craiova for sure. Just that he was hoping to transfer abroad, so he asked a large contract, and Mititelu wasn't willing to pay that much for an unfit player. Later, when he didn't get any offer from abroad, he had to go to the only club that still wanted him: Bistrita.

In any case, you guys overrate him. He is pretty good, I agree, but not that great. He might still be able to help our NT for a while though, and he's surely miles better than the likes of N. Grigore, Codrea, Banel or an unfit Tanasa.

Sack Lucescu until it's too late

well... I atleast don't expect him to carry our team to the next WC or something but I consider him the only creative player who actually does make a difference. Apostol, Lazar, Adi Cristea, Prepelita and Co. simply don't possess the fine quality of making infiltrating passes as Sanmartean does. If Sanmartean had signed for Craiova and played the same position that Wobay played yesterday I think they'd be in the top 3 right now.

Doubt it. Sanmartean needed a long time at Bistrita to get back in form, Craiova wouldn't have had as much patience.

Sanmartean hasn't been injured ever since he returned to Romania and I'm sure he'd have found his place after a while. He's the sort of player Craiova needs the most ironically... he can launch attacks and create decisive passes that Costea could easily benefit from. Remember the game vs. Inter where 80% of the passes were either too wide or too short. Sanmartean has the ability to deliver them perfectly and considering the difficulty of his passes his success-rate is immense for romanian standards.

PMC is right, he was never fit or able to play a whole game before this season. Besides, as he doesn´t score goals and he plays for the worst team in the league he probably isn´t noticed as he should. Steaua wanted him tough, but it didn´t happen. I´m sure he would be a great asset for our team.

I think it´s alright to call Tanase tough. Maybe PMC is unimpressed because last thursday he was unfit, but when on form he is able to give the passes that our team needs, while also being technical and able to run for the team. He can become the perfect midfielder and we don´t have another one like him.
Loosing Mutu will make us a very average team unless Lucescu is able to form a real team out of the group of decent/good players we have. I have hopes in Tanase, Roman and Cristea to make us dangerous offensively but Lucescu´s stubborness calling Niculae, Grigore and using Radoi-Chivu makes the future shady. We need a tall guy like Goian or Galamaz

i think we´ll see:

Panti/Coman
Maftei-Radoi-Chivu-Rat
Roman-Apostol-Codrea-Varga
Niculae-Cristea

I don't want to see Tanase called up because we all are aware of his qualities and he's not fit yet, so I would go for a promising player ahead of him for this friendly. Why should Sanmartean score goals when he basicly assists every goal Bistrita scored so far? they are a different team ever since Halagian took over anyhow.

Galamaz is in an amazing moment right now and imo the most consistent and reliable defender we have.

Tanase showed today(again) that he is miles away from any other romanian midfielder in many aspects. With a performance that wasn´t spectacular you can see that all his actions make sense, that he has great ball control and that he works hard. He makes Steaua better just for being there. And he is not at 100%. He is one of the few hopes of the future NT and he deserves to be there so he can assemble to the team. I agree other players should be tested but that can be done in the place of other who won´t give more that what we already know(such as Nicolita and D.Niculae)
I didn´t mean Sanmartean doesn´t deserve it, just that he would be noticed more if he scored goals. Of course we need players like him having such a hectic game as we do.

And i would like to see Galamaz starting as i suppose you do too.

I second the Galamaz comment. He's definitely on CL level, something the actual Radoi and Goian cannot claim.

Given the options, I'd go with
Coman-Maftei,Galamaz,Chivu,Rat-Roman,Apostol,Ghioane,Varga-Cristea,Niculae right now.
Niculae only because Lucescu made him shine and he went down fast afterwards. And at least he plays, unlike a certain guy named Ciprian. And a Bucur-Cristea pair is missing something. Rest are self-explanatory (Tanase should be left to recover well, a friendly just aint important enough to risk anything).

Galamaz is more complete than Radoi and Goian who suffer in certain aspects. Galamaz isn't slow nor small... Petrescu gave him the intelligence needed for a CB and he always was quite strong and quick.

I agree about Tanase... he's real class... he sticks out in comparison with the rest of Steaua which is a pretty bad thing actually
