I believe that Chivu has been somewhat ignored lately. Since he's such a great player, we shall make up for that. Here's an article from www.expres.ro about Chivu:

Chivu - capitan de echipa la Ajax Amsterdam!

Cristian Chivu este, incepind de ieri, noul capitan al echipei olandeze de fotbal Ajax Amsterdam. Chivu a evoluat pentru prima oara in noua postura aseara, chiar pe “ArenA” din Amsterdam, intr-o partida contind pentru optimile Cupei Olandei, in compania divizionarei secunde Rosendal (n.r.- meci disputat dupa inchiderea acestei editii). Sosirea lui Ronald Koeman pe banca tehnica a “lancierilor” (fostul international olandez l-a inlocuit pe Co Adriaanse) s-a dovedit de bun augur pentru resitean. Koeman l-a deposedat de banderola pe portarul Fred Grim, “veteranul” echipei, incredintindu-i-o lui Chivu, cel mai iubit fotbalist strain de la Ajax. De altfel, Koeman i-a facut o urare deosebita tinarului international roman: “Sa ajungi un jucator mai mare decit am fost eu!”.
“O mare onoare”

Cristi, cum e sa fii capitan al “lancierilor”?
E foarte bine! Cum sa fie? O mare onoare si, in acelasi timp, o imensa responsabilitate. Este unul dintre cele mai frumoase cadouri pe care le-am primit in viata.
In ce fel ai fost ales?
Cind era Co Adriaanse la echipa se vota. Anul trecut am iesit al treilea. Koeman n-a mai procedat asa. M-a chemat la el acum o saptamina, dupa jocul cistigat acasa cu 4-0 in fata celor de la Fortuna Sittard. “Vreau ca de acum incolo tu sa fii noul capitan de la Ajax”, mi-a spus el, dupa care m-a intrebat daca am ceva impotriva. I-am raspuns, evident, ca nu. A doua zi, in timp ce ne aflam la masa de prinz, a facut anuntul in fata intregii echipe.
Ce reactie au avut coechipierii?
Initial m-au luat la misto, dupa care toata lumea m-a felicitat. Intre atitia olandezi, cred ca e mare lucru ca un roman sa fie capitan de echipa.

Reprofilat pe postul de fundas central

Cum e noul tau antrenor?
Ronald Koeman e superbaiat! A reusit intr-un timp foarte scurt sa ne descreteasca fruntile, sa ne redea increderea pe care o pierduseram. Mie mi-a spus ca ii pot organiza jocul in aparare si ca are incredere in mine. Mi-a cerut sa evoluez pe postul de fundas central, cel pe care Koeman a devenit celebru ca fotbalist. In plus, ne-a dovedit ca e un mare antrenor. E foarte diferit de Adriaanse.
Ce e cu reintoarcerea lui Bogdan Lobont?
Koeman s-a interesat inclusiv de el. Vrea sa-i vada pe toti fotbalistii care se afla sub contract cu Ajax. De exemplu, saptamina trecuta a folosit o alta formula de echipa, pentru ca in aceasta seara (n.r. - ieri) sa anunte citiva noi titulari. Vrea sa gaseasca formula ideala, fara sa sacrifice obiectivele care au ramas, respectiv Cupa si campionatul Olandei.
Cum e viata la Amsterdam?
M-am cam plictisit. Poate a aparut si putina oboseala. Mai avem patru meciuri, dupa care vin acasa de Sarbatori. Abia astept!
Cu fetele cum stai?
De la foarte bine in sus!






This article is saying that Chivu has been nominated Ajax's captain!!! Great news for our 21 years old! :cool:

The article is also saying that Koeman (ajax's coach) is very interested in Lobont. In fact, Lobont might go back to Ajax even this Winter!

On another note, Chivu said that he's doing fine with women..but that's not something new, right?! :D

CONGRATS TO CHIVU. He's the MAN!

He needs a coach like Koeman to really boost his confidence. The sky is the limit for Chivu.

And as Koeman said to chivu, I too hope he becomes as great as Koeman.

Il Captitano Chivu :)

Great stuff Chivu, my vote for Romanian player of the year (that is if he were on the list). Defenders often get overlooked and ignored, but Chivu has become a very mature defender. He always had the talent but now he's got more of those intangable qualities that make a great defender and player, maturity and leadership.

I can see why he said he is kinda bored - I went to Amsterdam this summer for a few days on my way back from RO. Although it is a beautiful city, it is also very dull! It is like you are in a hospital or a big real estate office - everyone minds their own business, but nothing much happening. I passed through the red light district - not really impressed.
And I'm sorry but Dutch Women in general are extremely plain...and don't know how to look or dress feminine.

there are two more.

Sportul Studentesc which used to be associated to the University of Bucharest..Hagi played there for a season or two..

National Bucuresti which is having a very good season after flirting with relegation the past few years.

There are several others in the lower divisions...I don't all of them, but I'm sure there are many..

BTW...Where write Dinamo..with an 'i'..The spelling with a 'y' is russian or ukrainian..The letter 'y' appears very seldom in our language...mostly in neologisms..

Don't forget Rocar Bucuresti dinamo.

There are plenty more Bucuresti clubs in the 2nd and 3rd divisions I think, but I'm not sure.

I know there is Dinamo, Rapid, Steaua, National, Sportul, Rocar all in the 1st division.
