Friendly: Greece-Romania AKA The Most Boring Football Match Ever.

So, yeah,

Tuesday, 15th of November, somewhere in Austria I think.

Greece plays against Piturca. Spectators are advised to drink lots of coffee or do lots of meth if they want to see this game... Though I can't imagine why anyone would.

I don't know if we should call it most boring game ever. Still, considering game-plans it will most likely be.

Romania NT has weak roster, but weak coach as well. No winning mentality implemented.

Greece are slight favorites to win this game at sports betting.

It would be nice if Torje played all 90.
I don't see much of a point to this game, with two counter attacking teams involved.

Romanian record against Greece is: 29 games played, 16 wins, 8 draws, 5 losses.

With the exception of Former Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Former Czechoslovakia and Poland, Greece is the team against who we have played more games.

Hmmm... The losses are about to reach 20%.

I think betting on X2's against Romania will bring me a lot of cash. What do you think?

I don´t think we'll win. With a bit of luck maybe we get a draw.



A pity Sanmartean can´t play against Greece, because of the moron of Piturca.

The Panathinaikos fans would've remembered about Sanmartean for sure.

I can't believe that he's not testing new midfielders and striker actually worth their salt. I can't believe that you can find so many players that would make our game better but they get no chances:

Sanmartean, Muresan, Zicu, Marius Niculae, Herea, hell... even Catalin Munteanu

Not to mention Mutu and Marica sidelined...

I mean you could claim that some of those players are wel-known but that excuse fails given that Cocis is there.

Aside from Lazar, Torje and Tanase I'd call up no other mids in the team now... Striker-wise... Only Stancu. Varga ain't doing shit, even Mihai Roman did better for the NT. And now Banel has started playing in France I hope that he can reach a decent form so we have some options there.

No area of selection? Really?
------------Tatarusanu

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

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

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

and
-------------Pantilimon

Rapa----Gardos-----Papp----Radu

Banel---Bourceanu--Tanase--Zicu

--------M. Niculae---Stancu

2 decent teams. Fine, the 2nd one is completely experimental but we really should have a shot... I mean Turkey, Hungary and Estonia don't scare me. Only Romania scares me.



No, we're stuck with Cocis, Neagu and Daniel Niculae


You got Mutu, Sanmartean, Torje and you start with Cocis and the "young" Pintilii. At least Neagu is 22, Pintilii can't progress more at 27, call Nistor if you want a Pandurii mid. But guess what... You like Pandurii players because they play in a good style, not because of their individual value, Piti.... So in the NT they're screwed.


Yeah, I've included injured player(s), of course I did.

Balgradean, Matel, Chiriches, Gaman, Latovlevici, Roman, Nistor, Herea, Varga, C. Munteanu, Marinescu, etc can form a 3rd team.

Ienei said it right. First, fix the best players in the NT (this includes Mutu, Lucian...etc of course), and then make the experiments around them.


But what does Ienei know. He only qualified Romania to WC 90 after 20 years of absence.

Of course. Everything is done wrong. What he does doesn´t form a solid team and doesn´t test young players either. We need confidence, a winning spirit, and then you can mix young players into that. And what´s so hard to believe is that even when good results are so rare for the NT, our coaches even disregard the few things that HAVE worked. Our best performance was against Bosnia. And what was the mistery? Using our most talented and best players, such as Sanmartean, Mutu, Torje, Marica and Muresan. But that team was never used again!!
moreover, Sanmartean and Muresan helped in an honorable performance against Brazil, in Brazil, even surrounded by and inexperienced and experimental team. Lucian was our best offensive player and Muresan almost scored an amazing goal and was our most solid player.
When Piturca called Lucian he was our best player until he got injured, but now he was overlooked again.
Herea was the best players and goalscorer against san Marino, and wasn´t called again.
Lazar has been good and consistent in every game, and still gets replaced at halftime when he was our only decent player!
Even Torje, who has already scored 3 goals for the NT, and assisted a couple, gets benched in favour of Nicolita, Varga or Cocis...

And of course, players that have been present in all the failures of our team, such as Cocis, Niculae or Banel, always get new chances.

Wow.... He called the snail up? I'm baffled.

Any chance he'll call the old git (Muresan) and the Bulgarian leader (Zicu)... Maybe the MVP of the Romanian League (Lucian)?

Nah.

From GSP:

Mijlocaşul lui Udinese a comentat ironic la antrenamentul de duminică o ştire apărută despre el pe site-ul GSP.ro, în care se constata că evoluţiile lui la Udinese şi la lot sînt în scădere: "Uite, m-am oprit, nu mai sînt în cădere liberă! Stau pe loc aici, lîngă voi!".



The Udinese MF made ironic comments, after Sunday's practice. After finding out GSP wrote that he's in free-fall as his performances at Udinese are on a downward path, he said: "hey, look, I'm not free-falling anymore! I'm standing still, next to you!"

What´s pathetic is that they represent that as an arrogance from Torje. Yeah you are entitled to write any BS about him but he has no right to reply. IMO he was brilliant
