Feroe-Romania, 11 October 2015

On the same day that a real team plays in the WC to qualify for the next WC, Football-Romania, also known as the "Becali-Iordanescu Team" needs to defeat the Faroe Islanders for a place at the Euro in France.

After 4 games without victory, the Romanians will try to at least not lose in Torshavn, event which might allow them to end the qualification as best 3rd placed.

The word in the press is that Romania will be "super-offensive", Ioanitoaia-speak for using 2 forwards:

Tatarusanu

Papp---Grigore-----Moti-------Rat

Chiriches---Pintilii---Prepelita

Chipciu-----------------------Stancu

Keseru

If Romania loses, they are almost guaranteed a loss in the play-offs because, let's be fair, if we don't win now, we'll never win in the play-offs.

Hilarious game preview post, including that super offensive starting 11, as well as the double avatars; hilarious if matters weren't so sad.

Absolutely if we don't win in the difficult confines of the Faroe Islands, there is little chance that we qualify. Even though seeding wise we would be in the top 4, there are likely only 1-2 3rd place teams we can compete with given this current form.

Oh it's offensive alright, insultingly that is p

And cheers mate, you have to try to find the funny side with Romanian football, else you'll end up playing russian roulette or drink yourself to death

Of course if we can take action in any of these matters it would be important to be serious, but since the best we can do is write a letter to these numpties (unless any of you have FRF or agent contacts ) or pressure them with a great number of fans, might as well save it and hope for the best. Only so much we can say about it.

Yeah, assuming the worst (depends on your perspective p) and we make the playoffs, I think we'd almost certainly not qualify if we play anywhere near this. The last four games have been unacceptable, four draws in a row (including three 0-0s) and only 5 goals scored in 2015 is shocking.. especially given the opposition. Our biggest hope is to either not qualify and see drastic changes (not the option I'd like since I'm tired of missing out on final tournaments so closely), or that we do qualify and Iordanescu is still fired, and other significant changes occur over the months approaching the Euros. But it's difficult to see that happening. Maybe we can hope for 2018 or 2020, though I could see Iordanescu's replacement being Piturca or Razvan, a never ending cycle of crap

And I thought it couldn't get any worse...

This must be super-mega-ultra offensive: 3 forwards.

Grigore could've left us out of the Euro if the ref had eyes, but he's still starter. Stancu missed 5 big chances, but he's still starter? And on the left? When he proved he's the worst left wing that ever played for Romania, not once, not twice, but every ****ing time?

I doubt this is the team, but GSP clearly don't know football. What I'm afraid of, is Iordanescu not knowing football either. 2 DMs in Faroes when you gotta win?

BTW, Love the Iordanescu pics, guys

I wish this would convince him to use the following team:

-------------Tatarusanu

Matel----Chiriches----Moti----Rat

----------Hoban-Sanmartean

Torje---------Budescu--------Maxim

------------Alibec/Andone

That would be a very nice team foresta (given the callups)

I think we will see some more 'offensive' changes for this game, but probably more offensive than attacking if you catch my drift p

That nickname--Tata Puiu--works even better in English:

"Father Chicken" or "Old Man Chicken" if we take Tata to be short for tataie.

Torje says that on Sunday they'll make a people happy.

I wonder if it's the Faroese people.

Things could be worse... Regarding Torje, he is doing well. The problem is that he needs to be surrounded by technical players, cause among Chipciu, Stancu and Keseru he is Messi, but his actual job could be to offer the pace and intensitity we won't get from Budescu, Maxim or Alibec. And of course he can't take corners or FK's from the right. Btw no one outside here noticed how bad we were at set piece taking, while we had an excellent Player for that on the bench

hahaha, love it

I agree about Torje, great to have him in the team imo but how Iordanescu can choose him to take our set pieces when we have Lucian Maxim and Budescu.. I don't know. Then again there's a lot more to question him about. Still, scary a manager at any level, let alone the international one, can be so oblivious to the strengths and weaknesses of the players in their own squad. Again, maybe there's more to the story and pinning it only on Iorda is not enough.. but I'm sure he may still play a big role in these huge issues

Torje and Keseru are Iorda's choices for set pieces, yet these guys are not considered:

Answer me this, guys... I simply can't figure it out:

1. How can Iordanescu think of starting with 2 DMs in a must-win game? In the Faroes?

2. How can you use your least technical players against Faroes? Except Budescu... the next most technical is Chiriches (assuming Andone plays).


I honestly feel nothing for this team. What's the point of having feelings for this San Romanino? If we tried to use our best possible team, and lose, that would be different. This is absolutely no better than Piturca. Even he relented and called up Sanmartean and Budescu.

We need a loss in Torshavn. If we lose, I'm not gonna watch the 'baraj' unless it's at a convenient time and I've got nothing else to do.

1_ Scared coaches pay more attention to defensive problems than offensive ones. In his retarded mind, he must think we "risked too much" against Finland. It´s obvious he only attacked because he was finally forced by desperation. But you notice a coach´s "nature" from miles away

2_Being afraid also leads to always preferring players you know, and that give a certain performance, than risking with new ones. TBH Stancu created some danger, and as Maxim is unreliable, he prefers a player he knows. Of course LW is the worst possible position for Stancu...
Maxim is a must, but also Alibec would deserve his chance. I wouldn´t throw all new players at once (this is also a consequence of not trying them earlier), but Budescu-Alibec suppoerted by Torje, Maxim and Lucian can´t go wrong against Feroe. IMO we´d also need a player like bumba to have more speed on the flanks, at least for the SH, because Popa is zero for the NT

3_That´s why I want the coach to leave the most, and also sometimes we need bad results to avoid comformitiy from people that can´t look beyond a result no matter how poor. Regarding the interests behind the selection, that´s clearly the worst problem, so at least seeing players like Lucian, Budescu or Alibec shows that it isn´t impossible to get called without having a a huge pedrigree, playing for Steaua and who knows what else

Well he recently said we were "too offensive" against Finland, so it can be worse
