Maybe Contra tries something similar to this...


-------------------------Lung/Nita
---------------Balasa----------------Tosca
Manea-------------------------------------------Bancu
-----------------Cicaldau---------Anton
-----Man----------------Baluta----------Mitrita
--------------------Tucudean/Puscas


Nedelcearu or Stoian could be starters too.

Or Budescu of course.

An alternative can be playing with Baluta upfront as he usually does at Craiova. Kind of 'false striker'. I don't see it with Contra, but it's not impossible.

I prefer a real striker. Budescu should start, and Stoian deserves a real chance once and for all

I don't see Contra doing so many experiments from the start

Btw Lobont just announced his retirement

Internetul a explodat dup? ce Lobon? ?i-a anun?at retragerea! Suporterii Romei au ?inut s?-i mul?umeasc?, în timp ce unii au fost ?oca?i când au aflat c? înc? mai activeaz?: "Am un sticker Panini cu el de la EURO 2000" | @ProSport

I'm sure that if he announced it today it's because Contra will give him at least some minutes to say goodbye. That would be awesome

I'm 99% sure Buddy will start. Mitrita and Bancu too. The question is if Baluta will be a false 9. Stoian could play on the right side... Anton-Cicaldau sounds OK. Defense sounds OK and I think Nita will start.

Portari: 1. Bogdan Lobonț; 12. Ciprian Tătărușanu; 16. Florin Niță; 23. Silviu Lung

Fundași: 2. Romario Benzar; 3. Alin Toșca; 4. Cristian Manea; 5. Ionuț Nedelcearu; 11. Nicușor Bancu; 22. Cristian Săpunaru; 27. Mihai Bălașa

Mijlocași: 7. Alexandru Chipciu; 9. Dorin Rotariu; 10. Gheorghe Grozav; 14. Constantin Budescu; 15. Paul Anton; 17. Ciprian Deac; 18. Adrian Stoian; 20. Alexandru Cicâldău; 24. Dragoș Nedelcu; 26. Dennis Man; 28. Alexandru Mitriță

Atacanți: 13. Alexandru Băluță; 19. George Țucudean; 29. George Pușcaș

Looks like Lobont will get minutes. Silviu Lung was ousted from wearing the #1 shirt, which I doubt would happen otherwise.

Starting team IMO:

Nita

Manea -- Sapun -- Balasa -- Bancu

Anton -- Cicaldau
---------(Nedelcu)

Chipciu (Deac) ------ Budescu ------ Mitrita

Baluta
(Puscas)

Changes: Baluta -- Puscas, Chipciu -- Deac, Budescu -- Stoian, Cicaldau -- Nedelcu, Mitrita -- Man and Nita -- Lobont

Hmmm, I forgot that Grozav is one of Contra's favorites. And Rotariu deserves more credit despite his invisible last game.

Papers both say:

Romania: Tătăruşanu - Manea, Săpunaru, Bălaşa, Bancu - Anton, Nedelcu - Chipciu, Băluţă, Mitriţă - Puşcaş

GSP doesn't have Buddy as sub either, is he injured?

1-0 halftime. I would like us to play faster, cause it won't work against stronger teams. But the intention is very good

I'd like the pressing a bit higher. We're waiting for them to lose the ball themselves but we don't recuperate.
The pace of the game is very low.

Stoian was ok but he has problems with the long or deep passes, which is normal for a reconverted winger.
