Horrible without fans, but it should be a game to start building a new team. If he started Dragus against Serbia, he can start many U21 here

Made a boo-boo in the other thread, R. Marin is suspended--having missed the game w/ Serbia I didn't realize.


GSP reports Cicâldau will take his place, with either Baluta or Anton next to him.

So our squad is:

1. Pantilimon
12. Tatarusanu
16. Nita

2. Benzar
3. Toscar
4. Moti
6. Manea
11. Bancu
14. Nedelcearu
18. Pascanu
22. Sapunaru


5. Baluta
7. Chipciu
8. Anton
10. Maxim
15. Hagi
16. Cicaldau
17. Deac
20. Mitrita
23. Stanciu

9. Puscas
13. Keseru
19. Tucudean

Mitrita injured

Quote:
Golgeterul celor de la CS U Craiova a alunecat pe gazon și s-a accidentat la genunchiul stâng, părăsind antrenamentul cu 10 minute mai devreme. În cel mai scurt timp urmează să efectueze investigații, dar șansele de a evolua împotriva Lituaniei sunt mici.
Why so many Romanian players get injured in training sessions? Pfff

Contra about Rotariu:

Quote:
"Nu l-am convocat pentru că nu a jucat în ultimul timp. Vreau să joace meci de meci. E tânăr, talentat, are un potenţial enorm, iar mie îmi place foarte mult. Anul trecut a avut continuitate la Mousron, s-a văzut că este un jucător care dă goluri şi assist-uri, complet, dacă are continuitate şi încredere. Din păcate, anul acesta nu a făcut cea mai bună alegere şi, din păcate, nu joacă foarte mult la noua echipă. În iarnă, indiferent că va fi România sau străinătate, sper să-şi găsească o echipă la care să joace."

Why indeed... Surely it's unique.

Here are the actual numbers the players will use (except the injured Mitrita, I guess).

Mitrita is the bomb in the league and when NT games come he is never at 100%...very annoying.

Budescu was supposed to be the key player in these NL games and he was injured most of the time. Andone, our main striker, also out. Chiriches, our main defender, out...

It's very hard with our limited resources to do well this way. And without fans in 2 out of 3 home games

At least I hope Ianis starts. And I want Puscad upfront. If Mitrita is out I'd do:


Manea-Sapunaru-Nedelcearu-Bancu

Baluta-Cicaldau

Ianis-Stanciu-Maxim

Puscas

But I think Contra will use Chipciu, Deac and Tucudean

I think Ianis will get minutes, but almost certainly he won't start, unless he will replace Mitrita. But Maxim is more likely to start IMO.

My guess:

Tatarusanu

Manea - Sapunaru - Nedelcearu (Moti) - Bancu

Cicaldau - Anton (Baluta)

Chipciu (Deac) - Stanciu - Maxim

Tucudean

If we're lucky we'll see Ianis and Puscas play for a while

Reports say Mitrita will be ok for this game.

Prosport line-up: Tătăruşanu - Manea, Nedelcearu, Săpunaru, Toşca - T. Băluţă, Anton - Deac, Stanciu, Chipciu - Ţucudean...but it's based in nothing, only in what they think Contra can do.


It has no sense not to use Bancu as LB and start with 2 DMs. These guys forget we have to attack and score goals.

GSP thinks:

România: Tătărușanu - Cr.Manea, Moți, Săpunaru, Bancu - Cicâldău, P.Anton - Maxim, N. Stanciu, Chipciu - Țucudean

Mitrita seems OK to play, but why force him now? He can play vs Montenegro. Contra wants to make 3-4 changes anyway.

Quite frankly if we're not gonna use Ianis, Puscas and Nedelcearu or Pascanu, why were they even called? I'd start Puscas and one of the young CBs.

Serbia beat Montenegro 2-1

That's it for the chances for 1st place IMO. Unlikely that Lietuva can do something in Belgrade.

Starting line up:

Echipa de start a României: Tătăruşanu - Benzar, Săpunaru, Moţi, Bancu - Chipciu, Anton, Stanciu, Maxim - Keşeru, Puşcaş

So, Contra starts young players against Serbia but goes for experienced ones against Lithuania

Moti, Chipciu, Keseru...

That's probably the worst starting line-up in the Contra era. Anton has been poor in his games, Chipciu doesn't bring anything new...

And Keseru's performances for the NT have been consistently abysmal.

Good to see Puscas at least.

Should be enough to beat Lithuania.

It's quite offensive btw.

Yeah, it should. But come on, Keseru? You start Dragus and Baluta against Serbia and you can´t use Ianis, Baluta, Cicaldau or Mitrita here?

Yeah, starting Keseru is incredibly offensive.
