October 7th, Romania-Belarus 2-2: First win on the National Arena? Nope. Not yet.

Piturca deservedly pre-called Mutu and Tamas, as well as:

Lobont (AS Roma)
Pantilimon (Man City)
Sapunaru (FC Porto)
Goian (Rangers)
Rat (Shakhtar)
Lazar (PAOK)
Cocis (Rostov)
Torje (Udinese)
Nicolita (St. Etienne)
Zicu (CSKA Sofia)
Varga (Kuban)
Bucur (Kuban)
D. Niculae (Nancy)
Stancu (Orduspor)
Marica (Schalke)
Mazilu (Arsenal... Kiev)

Players such as Lung, Matel, Chiriches, Muresan, Tanase or Sanmartean are expected to complete the squad.

I'm expecting Varga, Mazilu and Daniel Niculae to be dropped.

What our team could look like:

----------------Pantilimon

Sapu------Goian--------Tamas--------Rat

------------Muresan----Lazar
Torje------------------------------Sanmartean

-----------Marica--------Mutu

LOL nice joke putting Radu into the starting lineup!

50 de lei says he gets injured and misses the game.

Tricolor pina la moarte!

That line-up would be sweet. But Piti is there to screw it.

Eclipse: You're right. More so, it seems he's still injured and will not be called up. p

I will fix the squad in the next minute.

Therefore changed Radu St --> Tamas in the main team.

Thanks Foresta! I knew I would win !

GICA< what do you think if Piti tries a Pep formation :

3 - 4 - 3

Panti

Sapu - Goian - Radu (when healthy, so never).

Torje - Muresean - Sanmartean - Rat

Mutu - Marica - Stancu

I'd try that why the F not.

Tricolor pina la moarte!

What are you basing this on? I mean Muresan and Sanmartean weren´t even called last time.

I´m glad Mutu is back but Tamas didn´t do anything to come back. And Daniel Niculae...
Let´s note that Piti isn´t caring about age (Niculae, Lazar, Lobont, Mutu)
So he shouldn´t use that excuse with Muresan and Sanmartean

To Eclipse:

I don´t say it wouldn´t work, but I don´t know if these Romanian players are tactically prepared for that. Plus, more than a 3 men defence, I'm almost sure that it would end up in a 5 men defence.

But IMO there is nothing wrong in playing a normal 4 men defence. It all depends of the players Piturca uses in midfield. If he uses the right players, we'll do ok. If he doesn't, we'll suffer.

I'm basing that on what our team could look like. Not will. There's the difference.

Piti said Sanmartean will be there when fit but he might be lying.

Given what I want to see from Liga I and who Piti called up that's my team.

I know we don't have anything even close to the Cesc, Xavi, Iniesta, Thiago midfielder on our team damnit. It will fail. Oh well I will try it on my Ps3!

I really rate the 4-4-2 for us. Even a 4-5-1 is alright. Depends how Mutu is considered.

'Foreigners' called:
Costel Pantilimon (Manchester City), Gabriel Tamaş (WBA), Dorin Goian (Rangers), Răzvan Raţ (Şahtior Doneţk), Răzvan Cociş (FC Rostov), Costin Lazăr (PAOK Salonic), Bănel Nicoliţă (Saint-Etienne), Gabriel Torje (Udinese), Adrian Mutu (AC Cesena), Bogdan Stancu (Orduspor), Ciprian Marica (Schalke), Gheorghe Bucur (Kuban Krasnodar) şi Ianis Zicu (ŢSKA Sofia).



Sapunaru is not there, so we'll see who will be the RB.

Sapunaru wasn't in Porto's squad for their European match I believe. I'm guessing he's still injured.



That leaves 10 domestic players to fill the squad.

My guesses:
Lung jr
Balgradean
Matel
Chiriches (if he's fit, not sure how bad his injury was)
Luchin
Latovlevici
D. Stoica
Bourceanu
Tanase
Sanmartean (unless Piti was lying before)

We still have some squad troubles. What's wrong with Varga anyway? He doesn't have room in the squad because of Tanase? p

Zicu scores 8 goals in Bulgaria
Tanase never scores

Zicu is intelligent
Tanase is a retard

Zicu doesn't play for a midtable team
Tanase does

Who gets called? Tanase of course!

Too many CBs! (Maybe Gardos is considered a DM in this list)

I don´t know why he ignores Zicu though, unless he got injured in today's game.


Good that he counted with Sanmartean. Now he only has to play with him as starter.

That means we still have a chance to see Lazar and Sanmartean play together.

There's a chance, as you put it, but I wouldn't hold my breath....

MF could look like (given even I think this team is too offensive and would be taking a huge risk, but one that could pay off, it surely won't happen):

Torje---Lazar---Cristea---Lucian


Will probably look like:

Torje---Bourceanu--Cocis---Tanase


Lazar-Bour-Lucian would be a good compromise.

Cristea and Sanmartean won't play together I don't think.. but Cristea is a good 30 minute player off of the bench

We'll never be a top team with Sapunaru and Radu always finding a reason to not play (legitimate injuries or whatever else). The difference between subs and starters is huge.

Muresan isn't called because he doesn't play a lot for CFR.

My questions for this match are simple: Matel or Luchin and Marica or Stancu. Other than that, it's clear what I would do.

I'm happy Piti kept his word wrt Sanmartean and that he likes Lazar.

BTW, it's good to see our youngest player is arguably in the best form
