Here you have a video from the last UEFA Cup season’s victory against Valencia…
Steaua - Valencia (2-0) - with 2 goals by Andrei Cristea. Steaua eliminated the great Spanish Team on penalties.

Today…after 20 years Steaua Bucharest returns to Sevilia

20 years ago Steaua won the UEFA Champions Cup there…

On 7 May 1986, Steaua became the first Romanian side to lift club football's greatest prize by defeating FC Barcelona 2-0 on penalties following a goalless draw at Sevilla FC's Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán stadium.

HELMUTH DUCKADAM, the legendary goalkeeper of Steaua Bucharest during the European Champions Cup final against F.C. Barcelona, played in Seville, in May 1986. He saved four consecutive penalty shots, from Jose Alexanco, Angle Pedraza, Pichi Alonso and Marcos, being the first one to do so in an official European competition.

Tonight, March 16 2006, after 20 years, STEAUA BUCURESTI is fighting BETIS SEVILIA for a place in the Quarter Finals of the UEFA Cup. In Seville…

And Marius Lacatus, one of the heros in 1986, is now the President of FC Steaua.

Steaua owner Gigi Becali invited all of that 1986 squad to travel aboard the same charter flight to Spain as the class of 2006, who are looking to reach the UEFA Cup quarter-finals at the expense of Real Betis Balompié following a 0-0 first-leg draw.

Dukadam will bring with him at the match the gloves he wore in the 1986 final. "I want Steaua to qualify so who knows, if it comes to penalties again, I might give my gloves to Steaua keeper Carlos Alberto Fernandes." said Ducadam.

Stefan Iovan, Steaua's captain in the 1986 showpiece in the absence of the suspended Tudorel Stoica, has also journeyed to southern Spain along with team-mates Adrian Bumbescu, Ilie Barbulescu, Mihail Majearu, Lucian Balan, Marin Radu and Constantin Pistol.

Laszlo Bölöni - now coaching French club Stade Rennais FC - is set to meet up with his former colleagues in Spain. It all augurs well... Let's hope God will help and give strenght to our guys tonight.

I am betting on a '1-1' score…Or maybe 'o-o' and penalties again… Carlos I sure hope that you are prepared, man! ;-)



I'll be in The BAR BAR Pub for the game!


Yesterday, after a dramatic match, Rapid Bucharest eliminated FC Hamburg and qualified (for the first time in Rapid’s history) in the Quarter Finals.

We are hoping that Steaua will join them in the Quarter Finals.

I hope that we'll read this post tomorrow happy and satisfied that we got through!

De ce nu scrii mai multe despre NLP ? Si eu cred ca e un topic interesant, dar sunt putini cu care se poate discuta asa ceva...

team building How to create effective teams, team work, and team building is a challenge in every organization. This is one of the key reasons why team building is such a hot topic. Team building is the deliberate process of developing and maintaining the team so it functions as its leaders and members want. Basically, success in team building is measured in two ways: by keeping conflicts down and performance up. The purpose of team building is to help your team be more effective. One could say that team building is like coaching but for a group. - team building guides
