The synthetic pitch will be the first adversary. A team that lost 5-0 to Montenegro shouldn´t be a problem if it wasn´t for that, but against Poland they showed that they are different at home

Probably something like


(same defense if they're in shape)

-------R.Marin --- Hoban ---- Stanciu

Popa-------------------------------------Maxim

--------------------Alibec

Yeah, same here. If we are gonna play on a field that´s fast, players like Chipciu, Andone or Bicfalvi will have big problems. Most papers, (we never know if they are inventing it) put Chipciu and Andone as starters. I think Andone will have a very hard time cause ball control is not his forte. For the style we tried on saturday, Alibec is a must.

I was reading on GSP that Daum wants fast passes and not players keeping the ball too much, in that case Alibec may have problems cause he is not used to playing like that.
Also, using Marin again may be expecting too much out of him after 3 days of his debut. but the options, unless Maxim plays on midfield, are not close to what he can offer

A team like the Faroes, or Kazakhstan, which can get results... but usually don't... is best counteracted with a very technical team.

Look at Faroes vs Hungary and vs Portugal respectively.

I think that this game will be quite similar to that in Faroes last qualifiers. In which our technical players made it easy.

So, Stanciu, Maxim, Alibec, and seemingly Razvan Marin would be certain starters for me.

Absolutely you guys are right that we need fast players for this pitch and more technical ones in midfield and the attack. No more Bicfalvi or Chipciu please. We need Alibec even if Daum's style might not suit him best right now. Andone or Stancu to come on for him in the second half depending on the situation. Rotariu comes on for one of the wingers in the second half. Just hope Maxim is fit to start. Sapunaru at CB is worrisome, he loses his head too easily. Moti preferred. Gaman doesn't play in Turkey. Hopefully Tiru gets a call soon. And Balasa, Matel, Belu should be considered as possible alternatives to Benzar. Vatajelu, Sepsi, Olteanu (though still only 20) the other options at LB since Lato is shaky defensively and has weird moments. Certainly no Filip starting til he shows consistently good performances in the league, he's been given enough chances in the NT now.

My lineup in Astana:

-------------Alibec
Maxim-----Stanciu----Popa
------Hoban-------Marin
Lato--Grigore--Moti--Benzar
-------------Tata

Subs to use (excluding injury or other reason): Rotariu (should start if Maxim isn't fit), Andone/Stancu, Tosca/Sapu

Sumudica has some interesting (and correct IMO) comments for this game.

He basically says that the surface will be fast, as we know, and that Alibec is not the best in such conditions. He also needs trust and understanding with the coach, he's a 'sensitive' guy.
He says Razvan Marin deserves to start and that the game against Armenia should not be what we judge ourselves on, and that Daum needs more matches before we judge him too.

?umudic?: "E greu ca Alibec s? joace contra Kazahstanului". Ce spune de R?zvan Marin

According to GSP, only one change

Tosca for Latovlevici

I guess it's true that a winning team shouldn't change... usually. But sometimes you can win despite the team. Maxim for Chipciu would be excellent. Maybe he keeps Stancu for the penalty he might consider inevitable

Apparently half our team had money and/or documents stolen from the hotel.

"Very nice, how much?!?"

On one hand it´s good to have continuity, to create a solid team. Many coaches just don´t change a team that won. But to me it´s clear Chipciu just took advantage from the easy game, and his clumsyness showed many times. Stancu works, but as we said he is no long term solution. It´ll be up to Stanciu and Marin to handle the ball and make the rest work

I had a nightmare that we lost 9-1. I woke up screaming.

Not to introduce Maxim if he's fit and start Chipciu is idiocy.

1st chance,

Stancu 3m to the right of goal

Grigore bleeding

That should (could?) have been a penalty.

The pitch is indeed troubling us, but Portugal had problems in Torshavn in the beginning too
