Shqiperia-Romania, Tirana, 11 Oct 2011. Time to be reborn.

Yeah, so, last match in the group.

Goian is back, hopefully that will exclude Moti from contention. It's likely Piturca will revert to a more defensive style. I just hope Sanmartean will be fit. There was a huge difference after he went out.

Should we give Silviu Lung a chance? I'm torn on the issue.

Matel, Tamas, Goian and Rat should be our back line.

Torje, Lazar, Gardos and Sanmartean should be our mids.

Marica and Mutu our forwards.

We will see what Piturca will do, though.

Rat (suspended), Sanmartean and Moti (both injured) are out for this game.


Lato, Goian and Tanase could be starters in their place.

Now Gardos is doubtful too

Sweet midfield.

I don't mind Nicolita playing, but both Nicolita and Cocis is not a good idea.

Playing Nicolita in that position in a 4-3-3, doesn´t make a lot of sense. He's a player for the flanks.

If Piturca really wants to play this way he better begins to test Pandurii midfielders.

I really hope piturca isn´t stupid enough to use that team. It would be fatal to field that against Albania. I hope it´s the usual BS

Tamas is also doubtful according to GSP. LOL.

How can this shit happen every single time?

If Piturca wants to play this way he better begin to clone Sanmartean, in hope that at least one will be fit for every game. So we need at least 5 or 6 copies.

But yeah, Nistor too, why not. Voiculet? How old is he? Can't be worse than Cristea or Tanase. In fact I think Tibi Balan and Prepelita should play over them. LOL.

I'd say bet a lot on the 1X here, and maybe on a goal for Mutu.

Silviu Lung over Pantilimon by a long shot.

Given the absences, I see: Matel-Goian-Gaman-Latovlevici. Wow. Even Albania can get many past this one. Luckily Goian is there so Albania can't play long balls too often.

Lazar-Bourceanu-Cocis as our midfield. Yes, I'd rather play Cocis than Tanase. Why? Because, why not? Cocis plays for a professional team, at least.

Our attack is good with the rejuvenation of Mutu. But if more than 3 or 4 balls reach them I'll be in total awe of the Universe.

GICA I agree Nicolita isn't right for a 4-3-3, atleast a 4-4-2 he plays his role and does it with effort.

I didn't see the 4-3-3, but given our attacking options it might be a good idea, Stancu,Marica,Mutu upfront.. that would be quite dangerous! (only if Mutu collects the ball from Midfield like he does at Cesena)

it would take less time to write down the players who are NOT doubtful...some of our players have like 10 days/year where they don't feel any pain

We need a core of 20 competitive players, given the high number of injured players we always have.

Right now we have like 4-5 competitive players in the NT core. The rest are failures or need still to confirm.



Piti has a real mission in his hands.

i think we have more competitive players, only with the problem that "some" of them are a lot of times injured (especially right before a NT game) and others don't play enough...but if these guys would be all fit and starting i would feel confident, atleast confident enough to beat the likes of Belarus. when only one or two links are weak in a chain, you see what happens (Cristea, Moti, Tamas)...and then imagine Tata, Rat, Sapu, Goian, Radu, Sanmartean, Muresan, Lazar, Mutu, Marica and Torje starting at the same time (with the right tactics for this specific team). that looks like a good team, 9-10 of them starters (7 of them at good clubs abroad) and the 11th, Marica, gets atleast some minutes in every game.

Matel (injured) is out too.


We can be happy if we get a draw in this game.


Probable team: Pantilimon - Luchin, Tamaş, Goian, Latovlevici - Lazăr, Bourceanu, Adrian Cristea - Torje, Marica, Mutu.

They changed the time from 10 PM to 9 PM, therefore it will be 2 PM ET.

Excluding just half of the defense and half of the midfield the team doesn't look too bad.

I'm starting to lose my sense of humor with respect to the NT. 10 injuries each time has stopped being hilarious. It's just really annoying.

Since 7 days ago,

Sanmartean, Tanase, Gardos, Matel, Tamas have all gotten more or less injured.

Even when the injury situation is disgusting again, i think we are good enough to win this game.

In terms of the first 11, there aren´t many real clues, once again both papers disagreeing a lot.

I guess we´ll have to put up with Cocis, who in my view is the worst choice for the NT, even worst than guys like Florescu, D. Niculae, Mazilu or Nicolita. I can´t see what he brings to the game, being that he is not a good defender, he doesn´t score, assist, dribble or cross well. His technique is poor too. so, what the hell does they see in him?


IMO it would also be very stupid if Piturca leaves Lazar out. Without brains in midfield, we are doomed.
The doubts that seem to be the most important are between Lung and Panti, Stancu and Marica and Cristea and Lazar.

Maybe Piti will let Lazar do the play-making in Sanmartean's absence.

As for Cocis, I think coaches like the fact that he struggles on the field. The problem is that we struggle as well when he's playing.
