Friendly: Romania - Turkey

Thursday, 9 November (20:15)

Constantin Radulescu stadium, Cluj



Squad:

Portari: Ciprian Tătărușanu (Nantes, 48/0), Costel Pantilimon (Deportivo La Coruna, 25/0), Bogdan Lobonț (AS Roma, 85/0), Florin Niță (FCSB, 0/0)

Fundași: Mihai Bălașa (FCSB, 1/0), Cosmin Moți (Ludogorets, 11/0), Vlad Chiricheș (Napoli, 51/0), Dragoș Grigore (Al-Sailiya, 30/0), Cristian Săpunaru (Kayserispor, 22/0), Alin Toșca (Real Betis, 9/0), Nicușor Bancu (CSU Craiova, 1/0), Cristian Ganea (FC Viitorul, 4/0)

Mijlocași: Sergiu Hanca (Dinamo, 3/0), Răzvan Marin (Standard Liege, 9/1), Eric Bicfalvi (FC Ural, 4/0), Mihai Pintilii (FCSB, 38/1), Ovidiu Hoban (CFR Cluj, 29/1), Nicolae Stanciu (Anderlecht, 17/6), Alexandru Chipciu (Anderlecht, 31/4), Gheorghe Grozav (Karabukspor, 16/3), Gabriel Torje (Karabukspor, 54/11), Ciprian Deac (CFR Cluj, 12/1), Alexandru Băluță (CSU Craiova, 4/1), Florin Tănase (FCSB, 2/0), Constantin Budescu (FCSB, 6/4)

Atacanți: Florin Andone (Deportivo La Coruna, 19/1), Claudiu Keșeru (Ludogorets, 20/6), Denis Alibec (FCSB, 7/1), George Țucudean (FC Viitorul, 1/0)


Alibec is there. Stancu out for injury. Florin Tanase gets his chance.

IMO Marin should go with the U21 in this November matches and Mateiu (in good form) with the senior team. It would be more logic.


Turkish squad, called by Mircea Lucescu:
Quote:
Portari: Harun Tekin (Bursaspor), Okan Kocuk (İstanbulspor), Volkan Babacan (Medipol Başakşehir)

Fundaşi: Kaan Ayhan (Fortuna Dusseldorf), Ozan Tufan (Fenerbahçe), Caglar Soyuncu (SC Freiburg), Erol Erdal Alkan (FC Dordrecht), Omer Toprak (Borussia Dortmund), Serdar Aziz (Galatasaray), Ugur Demirok (Trabzonspor), Atila Turan (Kayserispor), İsmail Koybası (Fenerbahce)

Mijlocaşi: Cengiz Under (AS Roma), Deniz Turuc (Kayserispor), Emre Mor (Celta Vigo), Oguzhan Ozyakup (Beşiktaş), Yusuf Yazici (Trabzonspor), Selcuk Inan (Galatasaray), Okay Yokuslu (Trabzonspor), Emre Akbaba (Aytemiz Alanyaspor), Yunus Malli (VfL Wolfsburg), Hakan Calhanoglu (AC Milan), Kenan Karaman (Hannover 96), Tolga Cigerci (Galatasaray)

Atacanţi: Cenk Tosun (Beşiktaş), Enes Unal (Levante)

Historical head to head: 25 matches, 13 Romanian wins, 7 draws and 5 Turkish wins.

Maxim, Stoian, Rotariu, Mateiu, Bourceanu, Vatajelu, Mogos and others not there but grigore Hoban Chipciu Stanciu pintilii and keseru are there. Small positives with Tanase, Bancu, Balasa and Alibec called, now lets see how much they get to play..

I think it`s a very good list. Much much better than with other coaches.

I love that he calls Alibec in a bad moment. That`s what we expect from a NT coahc. He also seems to trust Budescu a lot.

Some old guys that should not be there, but no list will be perfect. Maxim is the only big name missing. But instead of him he mostly calls other talented players like Baluta, Grozav or Tanase. I would have liked to see Mitrita, but the same thing applies

We definately need some renewal in defence. Balasa is the only new face there

We`ll see what happens regarding the line ups, as Hagibest mentioned

"Mie nu mi se pare că Alibec merită la națională. Nu ai cum să iei un jucător care nu face nimic în campionat, care nu dă niciun gol. Ce mesaj să primească jucătorii care sunt în formă? Acum, în acest moment, nu merită. Dacă vor să-l ajute este problema lor. Dar corect ar fi fost să nu-l ia", a spus Panduru la TV Telekom Sport.

Quote:
Și Mihăiță Pleșan este de părere că Denis Alibec nu trebuia convocat pentru meciurile României:

"Ce mesaj transmiţi? Este vorba despre echipa naţională, nu este echipa de club. Alibec este un jucător care nu este în formă. Ce mesaj vor primi cei care sunt în formă? La naţională ar trebui convocaţi cei mai în formă jucători"

I don't know which players in form (essentially forwards) they are talking about.

And I don't want to quote Dinu. Do you ever read Dinu? Whenever he talks is to complain about something or to attack someone. Always. I never read anything positive from him. Getting old is very hard for certain people, I guess.

Wow, look at that defense, is everyone over 30 (except Tosca)?! I hope that's not the team.

And 2 defensive mids? Are you playing the Turkey that was raped by Icelandic vikings at home or some imagined super-team?

I think I'd do this (with the players called):


Nita

Balasa-----Chiriches----Tosca-----Bancu

Hoban-----Stanciu

Deac----Budescu------Baluta

Andone

Wanna see Nita debut, I guess.

Hanca... I have some issues with such players... and Sapu is old and mistake prone last I saw him. Moti, Grigore too old. Ganea can play vs Holland.

Hoban and Deac since they're playing at 'home'. Stanciu... not sure, maybe Bicfalvi instead and Stanciu can play vs Holland. Baluta over Tanase, I guess.


Changes can vary by necessity. I guess Grozav, Tanase are the 2 main players that I'd also want to use. And definitely Alibec for 20 minutes or so for motivation.

Romania - Turkey (1985), WC qualifier...and Mircea Lucescu as Romanian coach. The score was 3-0.


Nice action by Hagi & Balaci to force a PK (missed by Balaci).

I hope the media is horribly wrong with their echipa probabila... cuz that is a ****ing joke for a friendly or any match really. Seriously makes no sense to sue Sapu and Grigore at any level anymore, and Pintilii Hoban for these friendlies? Come on... chipciu can also go f himself. That’s at least 5-6 players in that lineup that would make this a horrendous, pointless game. So I hope it’s a joke or I don’t consider Contra worth a damn

Bancu should get his debut. Balasa on the right is ideal, too bad he didn’t also call Mogos instead of Sapu or Hanca. Maxim Vatajelu and Rotariu could have been useful on the left wing as well but Baluta would do nicely to start. And of course budescu and Alibec should play together at least at some point vs Turkey.

Florin Tanase can be an interesting one to watch. One of the only cases from his “brilliant” calls...

Looked at the livescore line ups idk if they are correct but I guess we found why Romania was pot 1 last year. Romania A side vs Turkey B. Good for the ranking but no doubt once these key players for u retire u re gonna be looking pale.

Well, all our papers give the line-up I posted above. The one on livescores doesn't seem accurate but who knows


Tatarusanu -- Sapunaru, Chiriches, Moti, Ganea -- Hoban, Pintilii -- Torje, Budescu, Stanciu -- Andone

for reference

Also I think our new generation is lining up to be better than our current one but again, who knows

lol dude.. I'm not sure if you know this but 90% of our 'A' team that our coaches keep using is shit.. players that shouldnt even be anywhere near the squad. they're far from key. their retirement will be a blessing! we need to use our promising young players asap and the older ones that also get ignored. maxim stoian rotariu vatajelu mateiu mitrita alibec budescu marin nedelcu eventually morutan.. these guys are needed

I'm arguing with this Romanian idiot Nelu Coroian on twitter.. who is actually telling me to wake up because I think Alibec has the quality to play abroad.. and that he has no work ethic.. maybe the old Alibec, and he still has his issues, but come on.. with the right coach, he can do well. Contra already showing he may be able to do that. I can't believe our own fans are exactly like our coaches.. the same stupid mentality.. as if guys like Grigore Keseru Chipciu and Pintilii will get us places
