its either the new 4-1-4-1 or our old fashioned 4-2-3-1

maybe we'll see Toja sooner than expected as Szekely is out and we actually have nobody for certain

Arda Turan is their best player and Servet their best defender (given Meira isnt used to the team yet)... also since Szekely wont play Balta will have little problems stoppin our attacks from the right

Meira got injured today, it remains to be seen how serious it is.

Problem is attack. Umit Karan is injured but was in bad shape anyway. Nonda is pretty much the same. Missing seems to come as second nature to him. Now we have him and a couple of lightweight youngsters. The threat will have to come from Arda and hopefully a motivated Lincoln, who just recovered from injury.

Steaua aren´t great in attack either. Arthuro and Kapetanos are newcomers and they haven´t convinced yet. Plus the Szekely injury is a huge loss. They almost depend of what Dayro Moreno can do, or a surprise strike by Stancu.

In set pieces they will look for Goian headers.

Arda will be a problem... since Emeghara isnt recovered we'll either play Nesu or Marin and they both arent perfect...

Lincoln will prolly have to cope with either Radoi or O.Petre who both are excellent Dms

they'll probably break his legs :D
hmm... I sincerly doubt that... both players are usually very clean with their slides

well... ok... O.Petre isn't that clean :neutral:

that'd be a homecoming... O.Petre i heard is a fan's favourite in Galata so he could justisfy his reputation if he did indeed break someone's leg :D

yeah, the fans really wanted him to stay. they even had a chant for him ("siktir git petre") which is a very nice thing to say to a player. :D

fun aside... how old was he when he played for you guys? 20, 21? that's pretty harsh towards a kid

Yeah in Romanian you can say "Hai Sictir Ovidiu Petre"...but in Romanian it's not very offensive. It just means "Get Lost".

Lovin is Lovin. Nicolita is Nicolita. Toja is a newcomer. Arthuro is only good in headers until now...I don´t see many reasons to be optimistic. But who knows...

Adrian Ilie adviced to play with B. Stancu as the lone striker thanks to his goal efficiency.
