Road to Russia'18: Montenegro - Romania

Monday, 4 September. 21:45

Pod Goricom stadium, Podgorica




A match much more important for them than for us, which is basically a friendly with points.
We'll see the surprises of Daum for this game.


Head to head: 2 matches, 1 Romanian win, 1 draw.

Something similar to the other day but without the suspended Pintilii.

Will we lose this by more or less than 2.5 goals?

Well, we have no DMs so unless we're gonna attack (LOL), we're gonna have problems. And even if we don't... Maybe he should've called Hoban at least.

In a perfect world, I would have:

-------Alibec/Andone
Maxim-Budescu/Baluta-Deac
---Nistor/Stanciu--Nedelcu
Ganea-Tosca/Tiru-Chiri-Benzar
--------------Tata

Subs: Lung/Nita, Moti, Tiru/Tosca, Sapunaru, Anton, Stanciu/Nistor, Hoban/Pintilii, Hanca, Ionita, Baluta/Budescu, Ivan, Andone/Alibec

Not including players who are injured/don't play lately i.e. Balasa, Vatajelu, Rotariu,...

I can't help having such a fantasy that will never happen :'(

If we talk about the lot we have to deal with... I would probably do something like this:

----------Andone
Maxim---Baluta-Deac/Hanca
------Stanciu--Pintilii
Ganea-Tosca-Chiriches-Benzar
------------Tata

I feel like Daum might actually drop Stancu and start Maxim, but I bet Chipciu will start again over Deac and Hanca.. expect most of the same for the rest.

Pintilii is suspended, so it´s hard to predict what he´ll do to replace him, and if he´ll make changes. There´s been few days since the last game so that is a problem too

Hanca-Marin-Stanciu

Baluta/ Deac-Andone-Maxim

Could be a good option

I´m worried about Chiriches sayng they aren´t so motivated cause they can´t qualify anymore. If we don´t play seriously the situation can be really bad

Tătărușanu - Benzar, Chiricheș, Toșca, Cr. Ganea - R. Marin, N. Stanciu - Popa, Maxim, Stancu - Andone.

Holy shit how do I keep forgetting about Marin, who actually plays in Belgium, is actually an intelligent and technical player, and had that spectacular NT debut.

And about Chiriches, how can they have such a mentality and have the nerve to wear the shirt?? It's not over yet, if they had the brains of the Belgians Germans or even Croats, they could do it, but the way they think... even if you rely on the results of other teams, you have to give it all, otherwise what's the point - to look even worse? I know we're not happy with the situation and Daum right now, but this pisses me off even more.

I swear to god if this imbecile Daum starts with ****ing Popa and Stancu after that last game.... how can a professional coach who even won the league in Germany be so stupid? Is he deliberately trying to **** us now? Wtf

Our players know better than to think they have a chance when it's not 100% up to them. Denmark beat Poland, so it's over.

But that has to be coupled with knowing they still have to win all the remaining games!

The Armenia-Denmark game in Erevan is right before our game. If the Danes ever trip, we best hope our players will realise they still have a shot... If they do trip in fact and we win today, the situation changes drastically. Plus, the press keep saying that we might be worst second in any case, but thats pretty much impossible since they remove the games against the last placed team of the group. We lost 2 points to the Kazaks, so thats an advantage since pretty much all of the other 2nds will have 6 points against the last team in their respective groups.

Armenias game starts in an hour and a half

Total Daum football:

#1. Thou shalt not have more than one technical player in offense
#2. Stancu and Chipciu shall be perennial starters
#3. I won't call 2 DMs, so a CB can play there.

I think, for different reasons than GSP, that Daum needs to go.
The Rumaniac and Hagibest like this.

This is not a team to challenge for a WC spot, period. I think we might want to focus on WC2030.

Wow, Daum completely lost it....this line up is even weirder, Gaman as DM?!
I think Andone and the whole team would profit so much having Alibec in the team...

Chiriches should think more about how to avoid his average 1-2 crucial mistakes per game than about this qualification especially when everybody knows that every point counts for future qualifiers (coefficient).

We'll start by finding a half decent coach that will actually use the right team, one that would actually have a decent shot at qualification. You can't tell me our best team wouldn't be solid.
