Our defence sucks, no doubt about it. We must take advantage of having more quality in attack and midfield.
will start in goal
on the bench. If Boruc doesn't get overexcited, we can sleep well.
position as a right back
can hardly be challenged. Janas tried Zewlakow
there, but with little effect. Baszczynski is far from his best form, but I'm sure he won't fail.
is a problem. Bak
is certain to start, the most experienced player in our NT. He didn't look good in Lobanovsky tournament though, besides his league starts next month. Klos
is likely to be his company, although his form is disastrous. Janas has a hard nut to crack there. Glowacki isn't called up, so alternatives are Jop
. Jop seems to be in a very good form, but I think Janas will play it safe and field Klos.
position is Rzasa
. Janas must decide if he prefers Rzasa's experience or Dudka's courage. Rzasa is possibly the most prone to mistakes of all our defenders, but Dudka's stamina leaves much to be desired at the moment. No choice is really good, but I guess Rzasa will start.
is pretty easy to form. Sobolewski
is in a very good form, he must just watch out for yellow cards. Szymkowiak
is the key player in our NT and we all rely on him.
is a huge problem due to misfortunate Krzynowek's injury. It's a heavy blow. When we didn't know what to do with the ball, we could always pass it to Jacek. Now it's gonna be someone else. Two candidates there - Mila
. I'd go for Kosowski, despite all the arguments against him. But it's possible that they'll play together, much depends on Janas' choice for right midfielder position.
and three players to choose from - abovementioned Kosowski, Smolarek
. Not an easy decision. Smolarek doesn't look very convincing in the NT, but it's high time he show his quality.
- a headache for Janas. Zurawski
is indispensable and Frankowski
seems to be his natural partner. I think they'll start together, although Olisadebe
is a very strong challenge. If he has heart for our NT after all, he may be extremely useful again. Rasiak
deserves to enter the pitch too, so in both games we may expect a couple of substitutions.
It's possible, however, that Janas will produce a few surprises when announcing his starting eleven. It's also interesting if he decides to attack all the way or play kind of balanced football. Personally, I hope we can score a goal or two in the first halves of both games and then finish off the job with our deadly counter attacks in the second halves, but I think everybody would be perfectly content with 1:0 twice
