GSP:

Echipa probabilă a României: Tătărușanu - Benzar, Săpunaru, Bălașa, Bancu - R. Marin, Stanciu - Chipciu, Budescu, Mitriță - Țucudean

I have to say, if he does do this, Contra retains his gigantic balls from his player days.

It might also mean the Serbs can destroy our DM-less CM.

Probably the GSP information is based on nothing.

Maybe, but Prosport and Onlinesport (IIRC) say the same.

So I dunno.

Yeah, I think they are guessing.

And I wouldn't recommend to be so offensive either. Stanciu looses most of his danger playing as CM, he is not Sanmartean, he is a player whose shots are his best feature. Also, it's better to give some freedom to Marin who can also help offensively.
I'd put Anton as DM, Stanciu a CAM and have Budescu for the second half, I didn't see him in the form he was for Steaua last season

I'd play Marin, Anton and Stanciu in the middle. I'd try with Rotariu on the right and Mitrita on the left, looking for fast attacks. Tucudean upfront.

And of course Bancu has to play. He was one of the few decent players against Montenegro.

I pretty much agree with that... Dunno if 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 but yeah, the players are correct. Buddy seemed a bit out of it.

Yeah. Stoian could work on the right too. I think he is more match fit than Rotariu, more experienced and used to playing against strong players.
But of course Contra has to think of him as a winger, which he is

I don't mind Rotariu either tough, if he is on a good day he can make a difference

Serbia goes basically with everything they have: Dmitrovic, Rukavina, Spajic, Veljkovic, Kolarov, Maksinovic, Lukic, Milinkovic-Savic, Tadic, Ljajic, Mitrovic


Milinkovic, Tadic and Mitrovic especially dangerous. And the left foot of Kolarov.

What are the chances that we do better than a 3-0 loss here?

How many times in a row can we get beaten 5-0 in the same fixture
I hope Contra has seen some hidden magic in training that nobody knows about
This must be why he kicked the Serbian spies from the training session and didn't let the press know about his tactics

99% we'll do better than that, not because we are good, but because Serbia (aside of big names in good leagues) isn't that great either. A loss is realistic and to be expected but a draw/win wouldn't be such a huge suprise imo. This is still the Serbia which ****s up constantly although they have a lot of very talented players...

I'm waiting for the day without Chipciu, Pintilii,....

I don't know but I expect to concede a couple of goals in set pieces.
