Fans fined at the Dinamo-CFR Cluj game

Eight fans were fined by gendarmes at the Dinamo-CFR Cluj match on Saturday evening in Cluj-Napoca.

Five were fined for trying to scalp tickets before the match, and three others were fined for throwing items at gendarmes and starting a fight.

CFR Cluj managed only a 2-2 (0-1) draw at the match on Saturday night against Dinamo.

CFR Cluj continues to lead the top league with 39 points, followed by Steaua, with the same number of points but fewer goals scored, and Rapid Bucharest with 38 points.

Mutu to find out about his suspension at the end of April

Fiorentina football club striker Adrian Mutu is going to find out the results of the investigation of his doping case at the end of April, according to the newspaper Corriere Fiorentino.

Mutu risks from one to four years’ suspension since prosecutors consider him a recidivist because he tested positive for cocaine in 2004 while playing for Chelsea.

Mutu, 31, has been questioned by Italian Olympic Committee anti-doping prosecutors in Rome in his sibutramine doping case.

Mutu was suspended indefinitely after testing positive for sibutramine in tests carried out on 10 January after a match with Bari and on 20 January after a match with Lazio.

Craiova smashes top class Brasov

I know this was from this past weekend, but I was busy celebrating!:

FC Universitatea Craiova played at home (even though they weren't actually playing in their own stadium) against one of the top Liga I clubs, FC Brasov, defeating them by a wide score of 3-0. The match was rather exciting, and the Oltenii created many chances and I honestly think that they should have won by at least a score of 10-0 or 15-0.

The stiinta completely dominated the match and Brasov had only a very few chances near the goal against Craiova and didn't cause much of a problem for U Craiova. Iliev, the Bulgarian new signing for Craiova, was doing a great job in midfield despite being a little too aggressive at times.

The Oltenii were also missing out on their national team and number one defender in the Liga I, Ovidiu Dananae, yet were able to get 3 points out of this one. This was a very important win as it elevated their rank from a dangerous position to a less threatening one.

Goals: Valerica G─âman ('16), Radu Barbu ('25), Mihai Costea ('36).

I am hoping and now more confident that we can do much better in the rest of the season if we continue this type of football, we could even reach the UEFA Qualification spot!
