2 days gone, 3 new coaches in Liga I!


It’s that time of the season again! The time when the title contenders feel they’re losing chances and the teams fighting to survival feel they’re losing hope. So they all go for the easiest way to “produce a positive shock” for the team…

Steaua‘s Gigi Becali was the first to move and he got rid of Ilie Stan after he managed to collect only one point from the games versus Targu Mures (0-1) and Gaz Metan Medias (0-0). Mihai Stoichita‘s return is such a bad idea, that the poor coach (well, not that poor, because he’ll train everywhere and in any conditions for the right price) has slim chances even to finish the current season. He has been successful in the past, but that’s old history. In recent history, he’s just someone who will obey the orders coming from above and who will try to win the league with Steaua, even though in autumn 2011 he was giving up a fight for survival with the current bottom placed team, CS Mioveni.

At the other end of the table, Petrolul Ploiesti has lost two “six-points games” against Concordia Chiajna (3-4, at home, after leading 3-1 with 7-8 minutes to go) and Ceahlaul Piatra Neamt (1-2, away, after another lead at HT – yeah, I know the odds for these kind of results…) and the manager Valeriu Rachita decided to take a step back and look for another solution on the bench. That solution is Gheorghe Multescu, an experienced coach who will have to perform a small miracle, as you can see for yourselves in the current standings.

The third move comes from Astra Ploiesti, a mid-table club that has one of the wealthiest owners in Liga I, Ioan Niculae. This guy has a history of bad choices when it came to turning his team into a contender for a place in Europe and Antonio Conceicao, who was sacked after only a couple of months in charge, is just the latest example. Now, Astra hired Mircea Rednic, a coach who won the league with Dinamo and Rapid, and also named in charge of the club a certain Dinu Gheorghe, former Rapid and FC Brasov president, who refused to get involved again with Rapid and also Steaua, earlier this month. That’s a very strong partnership, but knowing Niculae and also Rednic, I doubt this marriage is going to deliver and/or last…
