Viitorul and Dinamo are the “big dogs” who didn’t make playoffs this year.

Gaz Metan and Botosani the more “surprising” teams in the playoffs, but not really.


CFR have defensive grit and experience, decent counters, lead by the tactically solid albeit stubborn and arrogant Petrescu. Manea has boosted them too.

Craiova can play nice football at times but also showed some sloppiness, looking toothless in the final third especially in the second half, unluckiness on posts and great Arlauskis saves aside. The finishing most definitely did cost us, and some weak defensive mistakes too.

FCSB have some pretty good players on paper but those players are inconsistent and the team is a mess tactically. We all know Gigi doesn’t help in that matter.

Astra are average at best when they miss Alibescu.. they easily lose points but also surprise sometimes, again usually with Alibec & Budescu though. Fatai has been a boost though, and V. Gheorghe has had a decent season. Then there’s Bègue, Ionita II, Radut, Tamas, and Baicu (who I haven’t seen lately). Other than that they are pretty weak.

Botosani play nice stuff too sometimes, good form lately.

Etc

Fcsb tied with Botosani. Man scored a espectacular goal and assisted Olaru for the other. What a potential this kid has

Good thing is that many young defenders are starting and doong well: Chindris, Ghita, R. Grigore, Pascanu, Boboc, Harut, Velisar

I can't see any other player than Man starting against Iceland on the right wing.

He is our best player there. The only problem is his lack of experience, specially in such a game. But he must be in the squad

BTW: team of the regular season. What do you think?

Giedrius Arlauskis (CFR Cluj) - Radu Boboc (Viitorul), Andrei Burcă (CFR Cluj), Marius Constantin (Gaz Metan), Mario Camora (CFR Cluj) - Dan Nistor (Dinamo/Universitatea Craiova), Jonathan Rodriguez (FC Botoșani), Alexandru Cicâldău (Universitatea Craiova) - Ciprian Deac (CFR Cluj), Denis Alibec (Astra), Florinel Coman (FCSB).

@forestasuceava Pretty good team. Dugandzic has also been pretty damn huge for Botosani

And if only Budescu played more..

Remember when we thought Andrei Ivan could become a good goalscorer. Well, he won't.



Mihaila needs more regularity, but he always offers interesting things. In his goal, he wins the position very cleverly and makes a wise header.

I stopped believing that after he moved to Rapid and seeing him at the U21 EC...he has some talent but he also makes horrible decisions and is a weak finisher, I don't see a big future for him.

Yeah sadly some youngsters begin to show their limits. When they are as young as Ivan was when he made his debut you expect them to correct those flaws, but many times it never happens and it seems the case with him. He has skills but can't score much. Maybe he'll be reconverted as a side midfielder, it's kinda what Radoi did and it worked

Rodriguez is a surprise...I don't know him very much. Maybe Budescu deserved it. Has he played a bit more it was a given
Marius Constantin is a surprise aswell, but IDK who could be there

Marius Constantin is there cause he scored tons of PKs.

Paun scoring the winner for CFR. Well he somehow deserved it after his sad experience in Sevilla.
