Game will be played next Wednesday in Timisoara.


Players called:

PORTARI: Costel Pantilimon (Poli Timişoara), Mircea Bornescu (Rapid)

FUNDAŞI: Vasile Maftei (Unirea Urziceni), Cristian Panin (CFR Cluj), Gabriel Tamaş (West Bromwich Albion), Mirel Rădoi (Al-Hilal Saudi Club), Dorin Goian (US Citta di Palermo), Valerică Găman (U Craiova), Laszlo Sepsi (Poli Timişoara), Mihai Neşu (FC Utrecht)

MIJLOCAŞI: Mihai Roman (FC Braşov), Bănel Nicoliţă (Steaua Bucureşti), Iulian Apostol (Unirea Urziceni), Paul Codrea (AC Siena), George Florescu (FC Midtylland), Tiberiu Ghioane (Dinamo Kiev), Ciprian Deac (CFR Cluj)

ATACANŢI: Andrei Cristea (Dinamo Bucureşti), Gigel Bucur (Kuban Krasnodar), Ciprian Marica (VfB Stuttgart), Daniel Niculae (AJ Auxerre), Marius Niculae (Dinamo Bucureşti)


I think it could be better. Let´s see if Deac or Florescu can confirm. Bornescu, Gaman and Sepsi sound weird to me.

Stefan Radu would have been called if he wasn´t injured.

maybe Luce Jr. cracks under pressure and wants to calm down the situation by using some guys for a meaningless friendly.

quality wise this is a team playing for place 4...frustrating how down we went in only 2 years and even before the situation wasn't that good, atleast we got results back then.

We have important players out too.

Chivu, Mutu and Tanase would mean an upgrade.


And the selection could be better.

I agree with GICA. The selection could be better, even when injuries destroy the team again (Chivu, Tanase, Radu, Rat, Galamaz, Apostol)

I hoped for Sanmartean, and Costea should be called. Daniel Niculae?... Lucescu will lead us to another failure if he continues like this. If there´s something this situation needs is intelligent management.

Sanmartean is the most technical romanian footballer right now and probably the only real playmaker available unless you'd like to consider the likes of Vezan.

We can consider D.Niculae a fix player, and more since he scored that goal against Poland. So I didn´t even commented it.

I expect something like this: Pantilimon - Maftei, Goian, Radoi, Nesu - Roman, Ghioane, Codrea, Deac - D.Niculae, Marica

i'd like this:

Pantilimon - Maftei, Tamas, Goian, Nesu/Sepsi - Roman, Ghioane, Radoi, Deac - M.Niculae, Cristea

introducing Florescu in the 2nd half. considering the current form and what they showed in the past 2 seasons Cristea has to play instead of Marica.

Spot on, sir, except we won't see it. Radoi is called as a CB, and Andrei Cristea is called as a LM!!! :party: Lucescu has this whole 'position' thing wrong.

Anyway, since you've given the ideal formula in the circumstances (w/ Nesu starting IMO), I'll tell you what will happen:

Pantilimon-Maftei, Radoi, Goian, Nesu- Roman, Codrea, Florescu, ???- D. Niculae, ???

That's what I know for sure (bar any injuries/stupid shit going down). I'm not sure who will start on the left and who the second striker will be. Personally, I think we'll see Cristea and Marica in the line-up. But they're both guesses at best. GSP indicates Nicolita and M. Niculae :((

Edit: It seems Ghioane will not play starter because he's recovering from an injury...

Our midfield :X It's full of world-beaters :D

Vermouth? Really, Vermouth plays for the Israel NT? I believe Tamas is well-acquainted with Vermouth. Not so much with Arbeitman, though... :proud:

Israel's attacking players are quick, agile and technical... I've seen them a few times and they can seriously trouble a defence.

how can Radoi make such a pass? you learn it in the age of 8 that you don't make such passes in defense, especially not if you are under pressure
