Burca is suspended for this game. Stanciu and Sorescu not in good conditions.

GSP speaks of a team made by: Radu - Ratiu, Rus, Nedelcearu, Bancu - R.Marin, Baluta, Cicaldau - Man, Puscas, Tanase.

If that's true, some of these players need to take a step forward regarding the June games, especially R.Marin, Cicaldau and Tanase. They were disssapointing players.

Damn, Burca is a loss specially if Nedelcearu starts..

We know GSP talks shit.

Puscas starting when he has so little playing time would be ridiculous, Tanase and Cicaldau...

I hope Edi is smarter than this.

I think M.Marin will start, Olaru probably aswell. Alibec our most in form striker

Don't hold your breath.
If we still play as bad as in the past few months and years,still no evolution and development to be seen (Edi: 6 games, 0,67 points/game, 3!!! scored and 9 conceded...against the mighty Finland, 2x Montenegro, Bosnia, Israel and Greece) I hope he's gone asap...he should've been fired a long time ago honestly...how does he plan to turn this around??? I just don't see it....only chance is if God exists and he's a huge Romania fan....but that would mean he has slept the last 20 years...and honestly, not even miracles (plural!) can save this coach and his team.

I agree, but I also think we could throw a squad together that would beat this one, and it's a very random squad of non call ups:

---Eric--Munteanu--Torje
--Dragomir--Popescu--Nistor--Mitrita
-----Grigore---Dragusin---Tamas
------------Papp---------------------

This lineup alone would probably beat our current NT playing finland. That's sad, no?

I'm not against him. He is one of the serious coaches we have, and I'm afraid we are too much a problem for any coach to solve. I don't believe he lost all his knowledge overnight.

We have a terrible combination of bad mentality, lack of quality, lack of fitness, zero influence so any ref can **** us, etc

He doesn't have much at disposal, players get
Injured all the time, players who play at low level or don't play, ones that come and don't give 100% for the team, others that choke when it matters...

He knew Burca was suspended and still only called 4 CBs? Knowing our players consider the round before a NT game injury time? What a dumbass...

If Tanase starts, ugh...

That's incredible. He called 27 players, had to choose from. He called 4 DM's...
He could have dropped Paun or Baluta and called another CB

Radu -- Ratiu, Nedelcearu, Rus, Bancu -- Boloca -- R. Marin, M. Marin --- Man, Alibec, Dragus

I consider Sorescu, Stanciu, Coman potentially out with injuries. Burca is suspended.

Otherwise, I'd exclude Paun, Tanase and ??? from the 23-man squad. (In principle, Camora but we only barely have enough DFs)

Not sure if he considered Marin or Boloca DMs... Something tells me Baluta starts tomorrow. Personally I'd play Boloca. Maybe even with 2 Marins in front of him.
Marin has been our DM in 3 out of the 4 last games. He can do that role for sure. So can Razvan if needed, he's playing there for Empoli (altough not the best for him IMO). I think Marius and a DM seems suited for a game against stronger teams.

We'll see about Boloca but he seems more of a CM

I agree but he doesn't make his life easier regarding some of his call ups.

Prediction?

For me, easy, 1-0 Finland.
I don't know but I can make one prediction: it won't be pretty...even our rare wins feel like losses honestly...because after those wins there's not much reason to feel more optimistic regarding the future. Our performances are just bad.

I'm gonna be a believer and say it ends 1:1...becoming a legendary game in rom football history when we got a draw away against the mighty Finland.

Hard to be optimistic. I can imagine a good, motivated start for us, even creating some chances (like against Montenegro). We could even score one of those. Or I can imagine a slow cautious start and becoming better with some subs on the last 30 when we are down...

But it seems impossible to expect a steady performamce troughout the match. So I guess 1-0 is a likely result

Being a starter in a top 5 league is a pretty good reason for a country whose players are mostly Serie C level according to you. R Marin is one of the few players who should always be called in our current situation...we can't replace such players with some ~18 year old who has played zero games on senior level. You can probably count our starters in top 5 leagues with one hand.
yes, indeed, we dont have so much top 5 starters. We have players who didnt rezist in Turkey so they are now loaned in other (low) leagues. I heard Sumudica criticized Edward Iordanescu about Maxim and Mitrita. Maybe he had a point, but what glorious results have we with them in the squad? :(
