    @Blackhawk can you please start a new game thread for Xanthi's road trip to Olympiakos this weekend since we own Xanthi? 🤣

    I agree with Dutch Eagle, the joke was in poor taste, but not racist. Why does everything have to be politically correct? Also we should inform our Dutch visitor that PAOK is not a Greek team. Doesn't he know we are gypsies from Bulgaria or Turkey? I don't know which. It depends who you listen to.

    Jesus, the Dutch just won't stay away. Going to be tough, but as always I see us really pushing them. They've lost 2 key players over the summer De Jong and De Ligt. @Yiankos this one is for you. ΤΗΝ ΤΕΛΕΥΤΑΙΑ ΔΕΚΑΕΤΙΑ ΠΙΟ ΠΟΛΥ ΜΕ ΤΟΝ ΑΓΙΑΞ ΠΑΙΖΟΥΜΕ ΠΑΡΑ ΜΕ ΤΟΝ άρη !!!

    Check out this great interview with Michael Valkanis - our assistant coach https://hellasfooty.blogspot.com/2020/01/q-with-ethniki-omada-assistant-coach.html?m=1&fbclid=IwAR3HJ2ELKQGEtB2UQYjuwwye8yJaDg1HDnO5l7tPdJ_CT0ACe8Lz4JO9gGM

    Wow...reading the halftime comments you'd think we were getting killed or something. Fact is everything is a trade off unless you have a Beckenbauer or Lahm in your line up....Staf had a brainfart and cost us a goal but he has also been the main man on the transition up the middle which is why Schippy put him there since we don't have any DMs who are up to the task. Bakasetas for all the hate you guys (and me) have given him always seems to do something to help get the result (in the last 3 games). Let's give the Schipster his due and congratulate him on turning this sorry excuse of a NT around. Great job today against a solid, well organized side.

    Dude let us enjoy the fact that we’ve won2 games in a row and are playing good football and we are headed in the right direction.. After all the s%$#! soccer and missed tournaments we deserve to feel good about our team and the direction they are headed So let’s not worry about what tournament we qualify for next because if we play good anything is possible..For anyone that has negative comments right now sit back and think when was the last time we’ve felt pretty good about our team..

    My wife is Portuguese. My father in law explained to me what happened to portugal. They never qualified. In World Cup 66 they finally made it and finished 3rd. Then they never qualified till Euro 84 and world cup 86. In soccer mad country they knew they had to change. So they fired everyone in the federation, invested heavily in training facilities state of the art. Hired the best youth coaches. Got a youth blueprint made up to follow. Also the teams improved their facilities because they new the only way to survive was to produce great young players and sell them. Win situation for them and also the national team. What it produced was youth under 20 World Cup winners in 89 and 91. Plus champions in all age groups. Since qualifying for Euro 96 they have only missed out on the world cup98. That's 11 tournaments qualified for. Well 10 because they were hosts in 04. They have gone to 3 finals winning 2, plus they were semifinalists 5 times in tournaments. This from a country of 11 million people and financial problems like Greece. And they look like qualifying for 2020. This is what Greece need to do. But won't happen. And it's not just portugal. Many countries have done it and its paying off. But there's to much corruption in Greece.

    The game against Turkey has been officially announced by EPO. It will be played on May 30, 2019 at Antalya Stadium in Antalya at 21:00 EEST. Also between May 22-29 the national team will take part in training camp in Apeldoorn, Holland before getting back to Athens for the two EURO games against Italy and Armenia.

    Wow wow wow. I’m so happy I went and was part of that. So so emotional. I am just taking off from Athens back to Edinburgh and it was amazing walking through the airport in my PAOK top. Some people not happy with me and others even congratulating me. This weekend has been like a dream. I can’t imagine what it has been like for some of you that have been waiting a life time for this.

    Τι να μας πεις ρε τζατζίκι; Απορώ πως έχεις το θράσος και εμφανίζεσαι ρε; Να μου πεις οπαδός του Ολυμπιακού σου είσαι λογικό να φοράς _edit_ For the record so the rest of PAOK fans in here are aware, Ms. Tzatziki still owes me $100 since last April. He lost the bet on who is going to win the championship. If that type of people are supermods, I don't think there's a place for me here.

    glad I watched this in full. Tsimikas world class performance and Masouaras inspiring off the bench. El Arabi such a clinical striker. Randelovic was that nice counter attacking threat all game and Cisse just being the giant he is. Tsimikas got gassed by the 90th minute and was scared he almost got injured. Great game!

    The Netherlands is hit by “Ciara”. So no football for me and better to stay in your house. My wife and I started to sort our photo’s and other stuff. Saw this ticket. First time my wife went to PAOK (and we just met a month earlier):

    We might as well start a dozen other threads. Saw 5 (yes 5!) players of OFI will serve their suspension in the game against us. Fortounis is back but El Arabi will score a super hattrick (left, right and a header). Malezas scores an owngoal in the first half and is released by the halifi during halftime and put on a plane to the good old Gulag. Pame thryle!

    My extreme disappointment with Aris new signing and my overall disgust with the SL in general turned me off and I did not watch or listen to the game this past weekend. Under other circumstances I would be thrilled with any victory against PAOK let alone one in which Aris scored 4 goals. Having said that I did watch the replay Almand provided for us, thank you sir. The over analyzation of this contest, not only here but in the media in general, made me curious. I thought it was a well deserved victory and although PAOK out possessed us Aris were the better side. The first half was very poor in quality since both teams were amped up running around like chickens with their heads cut off. The first two goals were similar, bad defending followed by horrible goal tending and our second goal very opportunistic but basically off a set piece. PAOK did have the chance to take a 2-0 lead and a 2-1 one lead but lucky for us their players didn't capitalize. For what it's worth those opportunities presented themselves because of defensive errors that our opponents jumped on and not by any organized attack, as a matter of fact I only recall one of those by them the entire game around the 66th minute when Giannoulis came down the left and crossed it to the Polish forward but Cuesta beat him to the ball. The second half was a different story definitely aided by the goalie's gift 3rd goal to Aris, it really took the wind out of their sails. The fourth goal along with the Fetfa offsides goal both came from great upfield defending by Aris creating breakaway opportunities. I will disagree with you guys here and to answer Emperor's question to me about Oenning's scheme, I thought it was brilliant especially after our new signing came in. The 4-2-4 high press caused PAOK major problems and they had a hard time getting the ball out from their defenders. PAOK was unable to threaten the entire second half aside from the 66th minute attack I spoke of earlier and of course their second goal which was another defensive miscue. To simplify things Aris won because they did a better job taking advantage of the opponents defensive errors. This roster can be very dangerous in games like these where the opponent possesses the ball because it affords them the opportunity to take advantage of their speed, finishing of course is another story. I can't say that any one player stood out but hats off to Larsson for his effort while he was in the game. Question, is it fair to assume there is a mandate from the boss for Ideye to play at all times?

    I’m against bringing back Sokratis and Manolas. I believe we need to start building for the next tournament and beyond. I appreciate and thank Sokratis, Manolas, Torosidis and co for all they’ve done for us. It’s time to move on... The youngsters have proven to be reliable and we should build on that. We should looking to improve the CB, RB and CAM position in my opinion. Stafylidis shouldn’t play at CB against heavyweights. Bakasetas isn’t going to be as effective against heavyweights in my opinion. Mavropanos and Retsos seem to be injury prone and until they perform and play week in and week out then I don’t see them being in contention even though I would like them to be. Siovas is getting old and will be 33 next year. Lampropoulos is only there because Risvanis, Goutas and Oikonomou are playing in the GSL. That’s my opinion. Risvanis would and could be a good addition at CB. If Stafy gets dropped then he can’t play LB. Giannoulis has been in terrific form there. Koutris and Tsimikas have done well there for Greece too.

    There are other forums where many members prefer to keep a cynical, smarmy attitude simply so that they can pretend to be smarter than everybody else when we don't win the world cup and tell us about how they knew it all along, what a bunch of losers greeks are, the greek people deserved to get screwed during the crisis, etc. rather than enjoy the moment when something goes well. Guess what...we won't win the world cup....hell we might not even qualify but what you are saying is that the NT shouldn't even try. I was never embarrassed by the NT, only disappointed because it's only a game and I never stopped supporting them and always hoped for the best because like I said it's only a game. Go support another country like Germany or Brazil who are perennial favorites so you can feel superior and we can root for the underdog Greece because that is part of us, heart and soul. The shame is on you, bud.

    Dude, these players are done. Especially Papastathopoulos. I ended up going to the stadium last night and it was the first time I have seen such an attacking Greece side. It was an absolute pleasure to watch. Still can’t believe how fast Limnios is. I’m not convinced with Bakakis and would have liked to have seen Vasileiadis come on in midfield instead of Bouchalakis. If the EO keep out of it and the Dutchman is allowed the do his thing, then I think he will rebuild a very strong Greek national team.

    The best thing that happened for JVS was going down 1-0 and seeing how this group would respond and they came out and scored 2 to get the win which showed a lot of character.. I know guys were negative In the first half calling certain players and the coach out which is fine but like I said in my first half comment this is the best and most attractive football we have played in years. The team was hungry, fast and some fantastic passing. The best thing that Manolas and Socrates did for this team was get Angelo fired as it got us JVS who I’m sold on now.. Boys we couldn’t beat the Faroe Islands with Manolas,Socrates, Mitro and Samaris so we get a coach that comes in and cuts all of them from the team and builds a team around young guys and look at the results. There is no doubt in my mind if JVS was here from the beginning we would have no problem finishing 2nd In this group. We have scored 5 goals in our last 3 games which rarely ever happened before as we would go games with no more then one attempt on goal and now we get 29.. This is a huge change and we are an upcoming team..

    It’s funny how players like Mantalos and Bakasetas were whipping boys for criticism yet now we are starting to see what they are capable of playing in a system that actually lets them play. The team is a joy to watch right now...the high pressing is brilliant we have stolen the ball off the opposition more times in our attacking half the last 3 games than the previous 4 years combined lol.

    And now we understand the reason for Stafylidis as a CB..the boys reverted to 3 at the back in attack, Staf to LB, Hatzidiakos in the middle and Kourbelis to the RB position..Giannouls and Bakakis pushed up as wingbacks to add to the Greece attack..maaate! Schip gave Galanopoulos a shot and he, along with Kourbelis will be the mids for the Ethniki for a long tme. Kourbelis was very composed and did the dirty work that Zeka usually does as well. Ethniki played a compact 4 5 1 against Italy and a 4 4 2 in D, with a 4 3 3/3 5 2 in attack vs Bos-Hertz. Fetfa and Koulouris caused havoc against Bos-Hertz, as did MOM Limnios. Van Schip!!!!!!! deserves kudos for his enterprising tactics, giving his players a chance to play football, as he demonstrated that he believes in them, players not being afraid to make mistakes although, continuing to stay compact and sticking with their gameplan. The Mykonos club went back to Mykonos. Didn't see or hear of any decent enterprise from the other coaches in the last few years, no imagination and one dimensional, alot like my romantic abilities..

    We might not agree with JVS playing certain players but let’s be honest he has them playing a good fast paced system with lots of pressure.. The Italy game even though we lost gave us some optimism and we were unlucky but today’s game against Bosnia was the best all around performance in the last 4 years hands down.. With out getting to far ahead of ourselves this coach looks like he knows what he’s doing.. We dominated the Bosnians IMO.. Hope we keep building on this.. Finally a good feeling after a game for once!!

    Schip also deserves praise, the mentality of the guys and the pace of the team was excellent!

    Didn't watch the game but saw extended highlights. That performance was ten fold better than anything we've dished up over the last 18 months. Great defense, working together was great to see like the Greece of old. We weren't stunning in attack yet the 2 best chances fell to us with Limnios and Kolouris, needless to say Bakasetas should've done better with his sliced attempt. Games like this you need to take those chances, on another day we are 0-1 or maybe even 0-2 up and it's a completely different game. 2 further things I liked we showed there is life without Sokrati and Manolas. The sun rose and we played well against a superior opponent. I like what Van't Schip is doing, he needs to be backed, this is a rebuild it's not going to happen over night. There is enough there to work with, we have talent what we need is discipline and correct tactics installed. Today was a step in the right direction, let the man work for a while, constantly changing managers isn't going to solve anything. One final thing I'll say is that traditionally these matches suit us better, as in giving up possession, sitting and countering. I feel we still have work to do to be able to comfortably beat the Liechtenstein's, Armenia's of the world. Our attackers work better when they have space we know we aren't a team that can move the ball around unlock a defense. Never the less I'm quite encouraged by that performance and hopeful we back it up against Bosnia and maybe pinch a result.

    Paok Aris 2-2 in 1976. Paok dominated in the beginning, but an incredible Aris comeback from 2-0 down. 40000 fans, Paok and Aris fans all sitting together (those were the days). I think there was no Θ4 fan club back in those days (was established later that year...?) and certainly no Super 3 either. Not many banners flags and scarves as today... No χαρτάκια either (that started a couple of years later) Stadium jampacked 2h before the game. Great atmosphere, everybody went home in one piece... Took us 2h (!!!) to drive back home...!

    These are the dark ages file, we previously lost 4 games straight in 1995 but that team recovered and played football, that team would put 3-4 goals on this lost group of players. We are the worst we have ever been in modern times and we need a clean out in many areas, primarily EPO.

    https://www.sdna.gr/podosfairo/euro/euro-2020/article/633773/oi-dokimes-toy-fant-sip-enopsei-finlandias O Ολλανδός τεχνικός στο διπλό της Τρίτης χώρισε τους παίκτες του σε δύο ομάδες. Στην πρώτη ήταν ο Πασχαλάκης στο τέρμα, άμυνα οι Μανωλάς, Σιόβας, Μπακάκης και Σταφυλίδης. Αμυντικά χαφ οι Ζέκα και Μπουχαλάκης, μπροστά τους τριάδα με Μασούρα, Κολοβό και Πέλκα και στην κορυφή τον Κουλούρη. Στην άλλη ενδεκάδα βρέθηκαν ο Βλαχοδήμος κάτω από τα δοκάρια, τετράδα στην άμυνα με Γιαννούλη, Παπασταθόπουλο, Κουρμπέλη και Τοροσίδη. Αμυντικά χαφ με Σιώπη και Σάμαρη, στις δύο πτέρυγες τους Λημνιό και Φετφατζίδη και στην επίθεση τους Βρουσάι και Παυλίδη. Apparently he is experimenting with 4-2-3-1 vs 4-4-2 formations....a good sign that he's at least looking at all options.

    Ang needs to go for more reason then the starting line up the guy is unstable.. A few examples. -Starts players in a position they are not use too. Example Siovis told the coach he’s never played that position and doesn’t feel comfortable but the coach ignored him. -Saying we lost because Armenians might be better people then the Greeks and god gave them the win. -Instead of watching video of how Armenia play he put a champions league match on. -When Socrates asked the coach how does he want them to defend set pieces the coach said “god will decide” -He almost came to blows with his goalie coach and assists during the Armenia game.. -He said he doesn’t believe in positions players can play everywhere. -he choose not bring Toro or Mitro and used an experimental line up against Italy. -He’s used 3 different goalies in his last 3 games. How can someone build chemistry with the team. -Since his been coach the team has allowed 9 goals against in his last 3 games. Which goes to show you based on the above information that his team is not prepared and the players are left to make decisions last second on the field.. I saw positive signs at the beginning when this coach first got hired but I was way off this guy is nuts and has no business coaching this team. He is a a guy that hasn’t coached a competitive game in 5 years, he has no sense of the modern football game and he leaves a lot of what happens to “god”. He needs to go ASAP. I’m not going to Bash anyone on this form like some people do for having an opinion but guys you can’t possibly think this guy deserves anymore chances..

    To non-Greek/Aussies, Ange P won the title as captain of a team named South Melbourne, the Greek population in Melbourne as a city is the largest outside of Athens. He was an excellent CB but blew his knee I believe and retired in his mid-late twenties. He coached Brisbane in the Aleague to multiple titles, got the national job and coached (with short preperation) at the World Cup 2014..that alone is a great experience. Wasn't looked after enough by the Australian EPO named FFA, and so when Socceroos qualified for 2018, he then went to Yokahama instead of his second World Cup in 2018. He would of done better than Bert Van Marwijk did-no idea honestly. When Greece came out a couple of year ago, Ange was walking out the tunnel for the second half of one of the two matches they had vs Socceroos, he was talking to Samaris and Sokratis another time I believe, he knows most Greek players well. There is a strong desire for him to coach Ethniki at a reduced contract. This guy knows how to coach 3 at the back with quick wingbacks or four at the back. He like coaching players with speed as much as reasonably possible (Jedinak had different qualities. He chopped up attacking raids beautifully and intimidated offenses, regardless of the fact he wasn't the most accurate passer on the counter attack). The fact Ange P has vision and speaks fluent Greek and has a great knowledge of the Greek Super League, speaks volumes. He also coached Socceroos on tour in Asia and in England and where they lost 1-0; He has more on his resume that Ouzounidis and Dellas. I would back him in to do a fine job if he was chosen. I think EPO will go for Ouzounidis personally.

    We should have taken Klaus on a 1 day loan from PAS so he can celebrate as well (Obviously I know that's not possible)...He may have lost his form and not be fit for PAOK anymore, but he IS PAOK for sure.
