Red alert: Stancu’s on fire!

December 2, 2010 1 comment

He scored 15 of Steaua’s 34 goals of the season, in all competitions. He’s the best scorer in Liga I, with 12 goals, scoring twice as much as he did in the entire previous campaign. Just for the record, last year’s most efficient striker, Andrei Crristea, netted just 16 goals to claim the golden boot award and miss transfers to high profile clubs like… Karslruhe. Let’s not go there, though, and stick to the 23 years old who has a number of high profile clubs following him, in spite of an asking price that should have reduced the interest in him, yet that strategy failed.

Round 17 – results, scorers, standings and highlights

December 1, 2010 Leave a comment
  • Unirea Urziceni – Sportul Studentesc 2-1 (Maftei 47, Semedo 72 / Balan 18)

Vital win for Octavian Grigore’s men, who came back from behind to take all the points and make it almost impossible for Sportul to avoid relegation. The goals came from two players that have big chances to leave Urziceni this month, so Unirea isn’t in a much better position either, as I expect them to struggle even to keep the current roster, so there’s no chance that it might get better after the winter mercato.

  • FC Vaslui – Pandurii Targu Jiu 3-1 (Wesley 40, Bello 45, R. Costin 50 / Voiculet 48)

Quite unlucky defeat for Pandurii, as the home team was extremely efficient and punished the guests in three consecutive plays. A lesson of pragmatism and a second consecutive fortunate win for FC Vaslui, who climbed into third place after this round and makes everyone wonder how Hizo’s men will be stopped when they’ll start to play some football and look like an organized team. They’re currently lacking some quality at the back and the coach is too keen to keep all the stars happy. Fielding them at the same time often makes Vaslui play with 5 defensive players and 5 forwards, a way to unbalance team to sustain a long run of good form & positive results. Read more…
