Daum said that 9 or even the 11 starters won´t be a surprise. It´s logical considering it´s a big game

So we can guess:

Tata

Benzar/Sapunaru- Chiriches-Grigore-Filip/Lato

Hoban-Marin

Popa-Stanciu-Chipciu/Stancu

Andone

Which would be a poor team if we intend to hold the ball against Poland and attack them

Yeah, shitty. I can´t imagine us dominating with any of the other strikers. BTW Stancu seems to be in a low form for his club

How would your team, using these 29 players, look like?

It´s hard to put together a convincing team with these players. But I´d go with:

Tata

Benzar/Sapunaru-Chiriches-Grigore-Lato

Hoban-Marin

Popa-Stanciu-Maxim

Andone/Stancu

Sapunaru-Benzar is an issue. Benzar is more offensive and therefore can help more, but sapunaru is the kind of player you want in such a game. I´m not convinced about Lato either, Filip could be just as good/bad

And upfront, None of the striker convinces me right now. Stancu is a safe choice, While Andone might finally explode for the NT some day...

What I think would be killer is to have Chipciua and Stancu on the flanks. I see Maxim as the only associate Stanciu can have aside from Marin who isn´t on such a high level yet

Off the bench I see Ivan and Grozav as players who can bring something different, considering Rotariu´s low form

Mine...


------------------------Tata
------------Chiriches-----------Grigore
Sapunaru----------------------------------Lato
-----------------------Hoban
------------Marin---------------Stanciu
--------Ivan-------------------------Maxim
----------------------Keseru


It's totally personal. I don't think Daum will use that attack, except maybe Keseru.

It´d be interesting to try Ivan. Popa is too unidimensional


The press is sure Chipciu will start...

Antrenorul german pare decis şi în privinţa vârfului pe care-l folosi. Daum a considerat că stilul lui Florin Andone se potriveşte mai bine pentru acest meci, deşi Claudiu Keşeru este cel mai în formă atacant român. De asemenea, sunt şanse foarte mari ca Răzvan Marin să înceapă încă din primul minut:

Ce jucători a ales Daum de la mijloc în sus: Hoban - Adi Popa, Marin, Stanciu, Chipciu - Andone

Dilemele din apărare

Dacă de la mijloc în sus şi-a făcut o idee, Christoph Daum încă semne de întrebare când vine vorba despre apărare. În centrul defensivei ar putea juca Vlad Chiricheş şi Dragoş Grigore, însă şi Cristi Săpunaru este luat în calcul pentru această zonă. Însă cele mai multe dileme sunt stârnite de fundaşii laterali.

Romario Benzar a făcut meciuri foarte bune pe partea dreaptă şi este recomandat mai ales pentru jocul ofensiv. Pe de altă parte, Cristi Săpunaru se apără mai bine şi experienţa l-ar putea ajuta în duelurile cu polonezii. Pe partea cealaltă, Daum are de ales între Toşca şi Latovlevici, în condiţiile în care Steliano Filip are unele probleme medicale. La fel ca pe dreapta, şi aici alegerea depinde de felul în care va juca naţionala. Toşca face mai bine faza defensivă, în timp ce Latovlevici contribuie mai mult la acţiunile ofensive, dar este mai neglijent în apărare.

Cum ar putea arăta România cu Polonia: Tătăruşanu - Benzar, Chiricheş, Grigore, Latovlevici - Hoban - Adi Popa, Răzvan Marin, Stanciu, Chipciu - Florin Andone

Maxim not even considered...so basically except for Marin, a technical CM, Daum´s line ups are pretty similar in terms of approach to Iordanescu´s ones

That´s dissapointing

Well I think Marin's seeming starting role really *is* an improvement.


And let's be honest, I have my doubts about Maxim too. How many times did he play 90' in the past 3 seasons? 4-5? A sub in 2. BundesLiga? Does he really deserve to start? Yeah, the Maxim at Pandurii would. But this guy... :-?

What is it with Maxim and German coaches...

if he really is a 'one-season wonder' as you say, I'd say it's more down to the coaches at Stuttgart than anything.. they ruined his confidence, even if he should have done better to come back afterwards, he wasn't playing the same style at all for a long time. At least he's improved again in some ways, but I'm not sure if we'll get to see that same player again.. it's another sad case of RTS.. many causes, clear symptoms, and often quite lethal in the end; it is an epidemic that has swept through Romanian football for years without mercy.

I'm afraid Lewa and/or Teo (the free-scoring guy at Stanciu and Chipciu's club) will be very difficult to deal with and they have a great midfield too.. defensive seems susceptible enough, and probably this team we can expect to counter quickly and not hold the ball much.. so the passes will have to be good and quick/good decisions.. I'm not too filled with confidence by our defence and a couple names in the more mid/forward positions, but still some improvements when Marin is a starter, for example.

I hope his subs will be good this time, too. They may be critical.

He raises doubts, yeah. But when he played this season he did well. And his competition is Chipciu or Stancu on the left. Both of them weak and unable to participate in any kind of creative play. That´s why he should be an option

So Grozav, Rotariu, Nedelcu, Filip, Tiru and Cojocaru not in the squad.

I guess the big question was Rotariu vs Ivan.

And Filip is injured.

There I support Daum. Rotariu is an idiot who lost his form just when he made his NT debut. Ivan is on a good track and he could be an option for the second half if Daum has some balls

So apparently it´ll be Chipciu-Stanciu-Popa- Stancu in attack. It seems we are cursed, every coach chooses the one dimensional players over the more talented ones. Except for Marin, who will be great but is still a kid, only Stanciu can produce something in this team. I expected Andone at least, who in a good day can trouble a solid defence
