Honduras-Romania, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Game

Honduras-Romania... Saturday, June 5th. Somewhere in Austria.

One week later, Honduras will be at the WC and we will be in front of the TV, watching England-USA cheering on such teams as Serbia or the Netherlands, Spain or Argentina. What is clear, though, is that there will be no Romania.

This is Honduras' last test before the World Cup. Unfortunately our team will be unable to prepare them for the games at the World Cup. We're third world, after all.

I guess Honduras wanted a test before playing Spain and our shirts fooled them into thinking we must play like Spain.

But it's not a laughing matter. I'd like to see the home game against Albania live... But this match might be enough to make me decide a sleepless night in Piatra Neamt train station is not worth it.

Comments..?

Apparently Chivu is out for this match, after a light injury.

That makes three injuries in the last week for our team. I guess we're champions at something, at least.

That Torje guy was ripping our U21's apart, reminds me of Krasic. Why doesn't he get a chance?

România: Pantilimon - Dănănae, Galamaz, Goian, Sepsi - Răduţ, Rădoi, Florescu, A. Cristea - D. Niculae, Bilaşco

According to Prosport. Another game of tenis cu piciorul over our midfield, by the looks of it.

Torje is not called up because Lucescu never coached him before. It's too hard to make him stop playing when we're one goal up. He wants to score all the time, the little guy

Razvan is a big fan of playing Cristea in the wings.


The game will be broadcasted live in Gol TV Spain, since Honduras is one of the Spanish rivals in the WC.

By looking back at Romania's games after the Euro, I noticed one thing: Cocis was our best man in almost all the games he played. Something's not right there.

I never was a big fan of Cocis but he proved he loves his NT and will do his best for us (even if that is sometimes not good enough). I kinda like the guy now, for some reason, although more as a person than a football player.

@Gica... That means Spain will seriously laugh at our NT, with our faux-Spain jerseys and the-opposite-of-Spain playing style.

Romanian NT is still quite respected in Spain.

Probably cause they don´t see their games


But Romania is one of the very few teams that beat Spain in the last 4 years after all.




Cocis never was useless. But with Piturca he played in a role that didn´t belong to him. He can´t be the playmaker of the NT.

Normally one would think it´s better to loose such a game and get rid of Razvan. But What we see is that instead of looking for solutions everything becomes worst. The press "finds" scandals and the team spirit goes even lower.
Besides, i can´t think of any possible replacement for Lucescu. He isn´t doing anything right but who would come instead of him? The idea is scary.

So i hope for a win to help our coefficient and hopefully regain some faith. Maybe Luce realized some of his mistakes and can do better next time.

I don´t trust the formations the papers announce, they disagree with each other. Vs Macedonia i noticed some attempt to pass the ball properly on the ground. Maybe that can continue and once we get some players that can do better individually t´ll work. I´d definately use Torje if he was around. I also think Tanase didn´t do that bad the other day. Maybe in a better team his qualities would show more. Also Cristea should start, but as Foward!!!

If I didn't know Razvan, I wouldn't be as upset as I am. But from what I know, I know that we'll still use tactics like the famous Razvan Retreat.

With Piturca, if we'd get scored on first, you knew we'd lose. With Razvan, if we score, we know we'll get scored on...

Anyone watching this match?

It's about to start in about 5'...

As usual, DigiSport hasn't started the transmission yet. I don't know the team...

I miss the times when we had ****ing professional TVR1 showing the matches, not these assholes.

And of course we missed the anthem. They should be forced to show that, but they don´t have any respect. They just show stupid publicity.


Bah
