Euro 2016Q: Romania-Hungary, 11 Oct 2014. Sinmartean returns to the National Team!!

The duel of the Pi-Pi coaches.

Perhaps a bit early, but the Hungarians opened a thread, so how about we start one as well?

Piturca refused an offer from Ittihad (so he says) so he'll stay coach for these two matches at least. A snooze-fest waiting to happen.

What more to say... let's hope he at least calls up our best players. Perhaps the fact that he wants to leave will make him take more risks, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Hungary dominated the entire match vs NIR, but the latter scored 2 goals in the dying minutes (having only had 4 opportunities the entire match). This usually indicates a lack of concentration and rather poor defending. To make it easy on ourselves, we should attack from the start and never stop.

Romania did well defensively but not so much offensively vs Greece.

For the worst-case scenario, talk to NoName and Rumaniac

I think that's the most likely score in Helsinki between Finland and Romania.

Given Hungary's worse than last time around, Romania better win this. I don't expect a large score given our coach, however.

Actually Piturca WANTED to leave. It's the Arabs who didn't want to pay the 1.4M clause. Piturca added that we cannot have everything we want in life.

Look at what he said today:

http://www.gsp.ro/fotbal/nationala/m...la-434203.html

" Chiar vreau să le mulţumesc că m-au dorit. Vorbisem cu Răzvan Burleanu şi pînă la urmă era de acord să plătesc numai jumătate din acea clauză, adică 700.000 de euro. Nu mi-am dorit să plec de la echipa naţională! Dacă ţineam neapărat, plăteam eu clauza din banii pe care îi primeam de la Al Ittihad "

Now that he stayed, it's easy for him to say that he didn't want leave. He's somehow 'cleaning his image'. The Arabs said that they had reached an agreement with Piturca.
If he didn't want to leave, why did he negotiated these days with the Arabs and even Burleanu?

"Dacă ţineam neapărat, plăteam eu clauza din banii pe care îi primeam de la Al Ittihad" surely

The reality is: nobody wanted to pay that clause. And FRF wanted all the money, because Piturca is a shield for them after all.

The rest are empty words and Piturca can go elsewhere with them.

Well I hope you guys have thought it trough and will root for hungary by my side. A loss vs them would be a nice blow on both Piturca, all the guys licking his balls (someone from our forum included) and Burleanu. But I´m afraid not even Piturca can loose against Hungary...

He´ll put me in quite some trouble if he calls Sinmartean tough. It´ll be hard to want Lucian to do well while the team looses

Couldn´t have said it better. Every party is trying to look good now. But Piturca wanted to go for his dollars and wasn´t allowed to. End of story

Not necessary. We have Marica for Finland only, then Stancu, Keseru, Rusescu/Chipciu. No need for more forwards.

The players I'd call for these games:

Goalkeepers:
Tatarusanu, Lung Jr, Pantilimon

Defenders:
Sapunaru/Rapa/Luchin, Radu, Chiriches, Gardos/Grigore, Moti/Papp/Gaman, Rat, Lato

Midfielders:
Sanmartean, Maxim, Enache, C. Tanase, Torje, Bumba, Chipciu, Bourceanu, C. Lazar/Anton/C. Matei, V. Lazar/Nistor/Mateiu/Cretu

Attackers:
Marica (vs Finland), Stancu, Budescu, Keseru/Rusescu/Mutu

------------Lung Jr
Luchin--Chiriches--Gardos--Radu
-------C. Lazar---Bourceanu
Enache------------------Maxim
----------Sanmartean
---------Marica/Stancu
Subs to use: Torje/Bumba, C. Matei, Keseru/Budescu/Mutu/Chipciu

OR

-------------Tata
Rapa--Chiriches--Grigore--Rat/Radu
------Anton---Bourceanu
Enache----------------C. Tanase
----------Maxim
--------Keseru/Marica
subs to use: Chipciu/Mutu/Budescu, Sanmartean, Torje

______________________________________
Notes:
Added an extra player for when Marica isn't playing (vs Hungary), take whichever one out for the Finland game when Marica is back.

Let's please forget about Tamas, Goian, and Pintilii... and pray for the impossible, that Matel somehow starts playing again somehow. He's our only real quality RB... the rest are 'improvisations,' average, and/or shit.
______________________________________

REALISTIC LINEUP:
(and even if this is being slightly hopeful with Piti at the helm)

GK: Tata, Lung Jr, Pantilimon
DF: Luchin, Tamas, Chiriches, Grigore, Gardos, Rat, Lato
MF: Maxim, Enache, Bourceanu, Pintilii, C. Tanase, Hoban, Torje, Chipciu
FW: Marica, Stancu (even though he'll probably be played on the left again...), Keseru, Rusescu, Puscas

--------------Tata
Tamas--Chiriches-Grigore--Rat
------Bourceanu--Pintilii/Hoban
Enache------------------Maxim
-------------Chipciu
----------Marica/Stancu

Players to watch for the Hungary game (I had it in more detail but XT logged me out when I finished and I lost all of it):

1. Balazs Dzsudzsak - the "Hungarian Dynamo" is a 27-year old winger and current captain of Hungary's senior national team. He's been scouted by the likes of the Liverpool and currently plays for the Russian PL side Dynamo Moskva. I personally like to call him a poor man's Bale they have similar styles IMO.

Strengths:
Crossing
Taking set-pieces

Holding on to the ball
Long shots

Weaknesses:
Defensive contributions

Styles:
Likes to play long balls
Likes to cross
Plays the ball off the ground

Likes to cut inside
Likes to shoot from distance
Does not dive into tackles

2. Daniel Tozser - the 29-year old CM is currently owned by Serie A side Parma and on loan at Watford in the English Championship.

Strengths:
Key passes
Taking set-pieces

Weaknesses:
Tackling

Styles:
Likes to play long balls
Plays the ball off the ground often

Likes to shoot from distance
Does not dive into tackles

3. Jozsef Varga - the 26-year old defensive-midfielder has previously been on loan at Middlesbrough and currently at Debrecen in Hungary's NB1.

Strengths:
Concentration

Weaknesses:
Aerial Duels
Crossing
Discipline

Styles:
Likes to play short passes
Does not dive into tackles

Commits fouls often

4. Zoltan Stieber - the 25-year old left-winger has previously played for the likes of Aston Villa and Mainz. He currently is owned by Hamburg SV in the German Bundesliga 1.

Strengths:
nothing really stands out

Weaknesses:
Passing
Aerial Duels

Styles:
Likes to cross
Plays the ball off the ground often

5. Gergő Lovrencsics - the 26-year old forward/winger currently plays for and is owned by Lech Poznan in the top Polish league, after impressing on loan last season. His stats are quite good and seems a bombastic winger.

Notable mentions:
Richárd Guzmics (CB, Wisla Krakow), Ádám Vass (CM/DM, MTK) - previously played for CFR Cluj, Dániel Böde (ST, Ferencvaros) - good stats.

Puscas is a U21 player (he's still a junior to be honest) and he has no experience in any top division.

His good numbers in the Primavera team are valid to call him with the U21 team, but not with the seniors. Not while Bus, for example, is scoring goals in Bulgaria.

Don't get crazy with Marica's absence. I think Piturca will use Stancu and Chipciu as starters. But other alternatives are Keseru, Budescu and even Rusescu.

I agree GICA but he could be ready for that this season, and Piturca has hinted at such an idea. But definitely all of those guys are way ahead of him right now. I think Bumba is definitely ready though, in fact he already played a friendly for the seniors last year.. but the problem is we have way too many quality wingers/attacking mids. Cretu could be ready too.
