    Coach van't Schip has copped a lot of criticism after the poor results. I found this interesting .. "... ακόμη και για έναν 'μπαρουτοκαπνισμένο', εγνωσμένης αξίας τεχνικό, το έργο 'ανοικοδόμησης' της εθνικής θα έμοιαζε δύσκολο και χρονοβόρο, and "Πόσω μάλλον για τον Ολλανδό, που προπονητικά δεν είχε να επιδείξει κάτι εντυπωσιακό και που έμοιαζε να έχει εκείνος περισσότερο ανάγκη από μια τέτοια συνεργασία, παρά το αντίθετο..." and "Σε κάθε περίπτωση η επιλογή του Φαν'τ Σιπ δεν ενθουσιάζει, καθώς μπορεί να ήταν ένας εξαιρετικός ποδοσφαιριστής με θητεία σε Άγιαξ και Τζένοα μετρώντας 41 συμμετοχές με την εθνική Ολλανδίας, ωστόσο ως τεχνικός δεν έχει τίποτε εντυπωσιακό στο παλμαρέ του.:" Here is the full article https://www.contra.gr/podosfairo/ta-6-vimata-tis-ethnikis-elladas-mechri-tin-anypolipsia.7497910.html The Greece NT job is a big challenge for any coach, but the fact van't Schip has been to Australia and Mexico is not necessarily a negative as it shows that he is prepared to move outside his comfort zone to further his own development. I am not sure he will succeed, but what I see is a professional who communicates well with the press and therefore with the players. His answers to difficult questions shows he is a coach who understand and realises the situation he finds himself in and what needs to be done. Greece NT is a team lacking in confidence, lacking in quality in key areas and undeserving of sold out stadiums. Injuries, retirements, an underperforming league, a lack of players playing in big leagues and a side that built it's success on defence are all contributing factors. I remember in Australia between 2014-17 van't Schip was very respected for the job he did with foundational club Melbourne City (fka. Melbourne Heart). The club built a reputation for attacking and high-scoring soccer, and had it's most sustained period of on-field success during van't Schip's time in charge. He left the club mid-way through the 2016/17 season to be with his terminally ill father. He formed a good working relationship with Michael Valkanis as his assistant and they are both now working together in the NT. These guys are no mugs, they have an eye for talent, and will roll their sleeves and will work with and bring the best talent to the NT. Another thing, van't Schip made it clear he will need time, he will work with youger players but won't automatically drop senior experienced players if they can help the team in next 2 years as he restarts the team. Call me crazy, but I am actually excited and look forward to Italy and Bosnia in Oct.

    If he tells them to piss off we might have a chance.

    So with Greece officially out of the running we can now look to see how the coach does over the balance of the remaining games. Does he give new guys a chance? Does he allow his team to be creative or play defensive? Does he have an overall plan to get the team to where they should be? Losing to Armenia at home, tie with Liechenstein, losing to Faroe islands and generally being slapped around by any team with quality is not where this team needs to be. Sometimes you have to rebuild the foundation and Greece, it appears, is at this point.

    I'm willing to give Koulouris a few more games to see if he can produce. Mitroglou can still score and I still think he should be on the team. He would have had a couple last game with those opportunities that fell to koulouris. I think Van Schip should have called him up and used him to sub in at Finland. Sokratis and Manolas didn't say much after they let the Liechtenstein forward out pace them on the goal. I guess Sokratis can't blame Angelo that. I love Sokratis but he has to shut up and play and not worry if his pals don't get the call up to the Ethniki.

    Koulouris seems to be turning into another Mitroglou for the NT....i.e. useless unless he's scoring goals....hopefully he'll be able to change those habits in France or better yet start scoring by the bucket load. Pavlidis seems to impose himself more making more runs off the ball and generally hustling a lot. Retsos has played a grand total of 31 minutes over the past year so if he can fully recover is anyone's guess....he has lost his spot at Bayer as a starter and will be hard pressed to get it back. Vrousai I'm not totally sold on...he seems to play second banana to Pavlidis. Truth: the Schippy will need time to sort out this mess of a team but he said all the right things and pointed out all the flaws in an honest manner....even Angelo deserved more time but was made scapegoat.....hopefully this doesn't happen again and btw the manner that Liechtenstein scored the tying goal should mean that we won't be hearing any more bu11$#it from Sokratis and Manolas again....nobody should ever get a free pass to NT if they're not 100% on board and totally committed....anybody who isn't needs to get dumped off the team.

    A lot of people criticized Katsouranis back then and wanted younger players in the squad. Some of them already deleted themselves from this forum but I guess some of their posts could be found even now. Gekas, Vyntra and Tziolis also had their haters but Katsouranis literally was to blame for everything. And of course Santos who always chose his favorite mummies, created a boring defensive team that was painful to watch and thwarted the development of terrific talents like Nines/Tachtsidis/Fetfatzidis etc. etc.

    I liked what the coach had to say, and I’m glad that he looks and sounds like a professional, compared to Anastasiadis

    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...!

    Έχω την εντύπωση ότι οι παίκτες θεωρούν γούρικη την 2η εμφάνιση (μπλε-μωβ φανέλα & κάλτσες, λευκό σορτς). Με αυτή την εμφάνιση έχουμε τα εξής αποτελέσματα: ΑΕΛ Λεμεσσού - Άρης 0-1 Άρης - Μόλντε 3-1 (3-0 κ.α.) Άρης - ΠΑΟ 4-0

    Τελικό 4-0, είχαμε ευκαιρίες και για άλλα γκολ, τους χτυπήσαμε στις αντεπιθέσεις, η άμυνα του ΠΑΟ έδειχνε ανήμπορη. Πολύ πάθος και ψυχή από όλους τους παίκτες μας. Μπράβο στον Τερζή για το πως κατέβασε την ομάδα και την πίστη για μια μεγάλη νίκη που είχαν όλοι. Δεν υπήρξε κάποιος που υστέρησε, μεγάλη εμφάνιση από Sasha & Φέτφα.

    It's just mind boggling how over the last 5 years we have lost to the likes of Faroes, Luxembourg, Hungary, Estonia and Finland and now the draw with Liechtenstein. This should never occur with the talent we can throw out on the pitch and would never have happened with the great players and leaders like Karagounis, zagorakis etc.. Also Otto and Santos did not put up with any crap from the players and the EPO and they worked as they wished not like the circus atmosphere that we have seen over the past 5 years.

    Διάβασα ότι ενδέχεται να παίξει βασικός ο Μαντσίνι σε ρόλο 10αριού. Και γω με τον Ντιγκινί έχω θέμα ρε παιδιά... Είναι ένας παίχτης που πραγματικά λιώνει μέσα στο γήπεδο, πιέζει τρέχει, αλλά εδώ και 2 χρόνια δεν έχω καταλάβει πού ακριβώς παίζει και τι παίζει! Δεν σου πάει η καρδιά να τον αφήσεις εκτός ομάδας, αλλά από την άλλη είναι καλός παντού αλλά πολύ καλός σε τίποτα (ούτε καλός οργανωτής, ούτε στο πλάι, ούτε φουνταριστός).... Άρα η πιο πιθανή θέση είναι ως δεύτερο φορ σε κάποιο 4-4-2 (που όμως δεν παίζουμε ή δεν παίζουμε σωστά).... Εγώ προσωπικά θα ήθελα να δω καθαρούς ρόλους μέσα στο γήπεδο για το κλασσικό 4-2-3-1. Φέτφα δεξιά, Μαρτίνεζ οργανωτή, αριστερά Λάρσον και Ιντέγε μπροστά. Και από κει και πέρα Μαντσίνι δεξιά. Γκάμα αριστερά ή δεξιά. Τόνσο - ενναλακτικό 10αρι (με βαριά καρδιά το Φέτφα ως 3ο) Ντιγκι - περιφερειακό φορ. Αυτό είναι το σχήμα που θα κατέβαζα εγώ... Δεν θα δοκίμαζα δηλαδή Τόνσο εξτρέμ Η Ντιγκινί εξτρέμ Η' Μαρτίνεζ δεξί εξτρέμ δηλ. τα πειράματα του βλάκα του Παντελίδη!

    We played our best possible players under Ranieri and Markarian. Look what happened. Skibbe played Tziolis, Tzavellas and Maniatis altogether against Croatia where we got smashed. That was the worst thing he could’ve done. With Manolas suspended it didn’t help. If was available in that 1st leg I firmly believe we would’ve a better chance in the 2nd leg. Anastasiadis played completely differently each ups each time. Played Fortounis ST and Siovas DM against Italy. Didn’t make sense then doesn’t make sense now. With Vant Schipt, I can’t argue with the line ups he put. He benched Kourbelis and Kolovos and rightfully so. He clearly believes the youth can outshine some of the current played and so he should. And so do I. Samaris and Torosidis should be the veterans that should be dropped.

    J1078 my point was that these clowns that are on the field now were being called to replace the KK combo. Now you see why a two guys in their late 30's were playing close to 90 minute games in 2012 and 14

    I think the team lacks cohesion. We need to find a team and stick to it. I hope with this next restart proper players with talent are called up and players who are going to be needed down the road. Meaning Samaris shouldn’t play. We are lacking creativity and finishing. We need more quality outwide too. These areas need fixing. I don’t know if we have the quality players to help this. Maybe L.Lamprou gets a look. Maybe Galanopoulos too. I’d like to see Lykogiannis again. Koutris should be our starting LB. Vlachodimos should go back in goals. Donis needs to start in this team. Fetfatzidis has to be in this team. Fetfatzidis is one of a few players with quality. Hopefully we start looking at Greek heritage players like Vasiliadis who plays at Paderborn and is the reason why they got promoted.

    The coach deserves NO criticism he’s only been here a month he doesn’t know the players he needs time and should be given time you can’t keep changing a coach every few games you will never build consistency as every coach has a different philosophy.. the truth in the matter is we should have beat this team with our B and C players this is NOT on the coach at all.. He is very professional in his interviews he seems very logical and seems to realize how deep our problems are unlike Ange who came in and said we will win right away.. He may not be anywhere near a high quality coach but he deserves a chance.. let’s see how he performs in the next games and in the World Cup qualifier before we pass judgment..

    Greece tied Liechenstien at home. This is probably as low as it gets. I remember the days on here years back when people would complain about guys like Katsouranis. Well you got what you wanted look at you now.

    I’m willing to give him time to come up with a roster of players who he thinks want to be a part of the NT and who will work in his system. The team was unfortunate not to get the victory yesterday lots of good chances koulouris header of the bar, Manolas shot of the bar, a goal called of incorrectly because the ref said the ball had gone over by line on tsimkas cross back to box which koulouris put in. Masouras had a nice shot labeled for the top corner that was remarkably saved. I still can’t believe how Manolas got beat on that goal by Salonovic. That’s the way it’s going right now. I

    The EPO are to blame for not extending Santos he wanted to stay back then. He speaks the language loves Greece and had a strategy at all levels but no the EPO forced him out and then goes and helps Portugal win there first major tournament Euro 2016. Then the EPO hire the joker Ranieri to replace him and the carousel of coaches that have since followed. Bravo EPO!

    Παιδιά σωστά όλα όσα λέτε... Ο παραγκωνισμός Μενέντεθ (και Βαλεριάνου) ήταν αδιανόητος. Όπως και η προτίμηση σε Κωνσταντινίδη από Τζανακάκη.... Από κει και πέρα δε βλέπω Μενέντεθ να μπαίνει βασικός με το καλημέρα (αν και τον γουστάρω - όπως και τον Κόρχουτ). Ο Κόρχουτ θεωρώ την έχει τη θέση.... ---- Ο πονοκέφαλος είναι μπροστά. Θεωρώ ότι μόνοι σίγουροι είναι Φέτφα και Ιντέγε. Από κει και πέρα, όλες οι υπόλοιπες θέσεις παίζονται. Εχουμε και λέμε.... (με βάση τι βλέπει ο προπονητής, όχι τι βλέπω εγώ, που εγώ θα ξεκινούσα Μαρτίνεζ πχ).... Σίγουρα μέσα - Φέτφα, Ιντέγε Σίγουρα πάγκο - Λάρσον, Τόνσο (αυτός μάλλον πάει βουρ για την κερκίδα - και το Δεκέμβριο bye bye αν δεν αλλάξει κάτι) Ερωτηματικά - Γκάμα, Ντίγκι, Μαρτίνεζ, Μαντσίνι Ασχετο - Είναι τρελλό να βλέπεις αυτό το ρόστερ και να λες "και όμως αυτή η ομάδα μάζεψε μόνο ένα βαθμό..."

    This is worse than the 80s and 90s. Back then qualification was harder with only 1 team qualifying from less groups. We were drawn against Netherlands, England and Portugal in some euro qualifiers if i recall correctly. We also had no players playing abroad back then and we played some alright attacking football in some games back then. This period if the worst period for our ethniki in my opinion

    Michel was hands down the best TD we had. Brought in some great players. He built the core of this team. I think Arnesen might have been just as good but it’s not fair to compare them as they operated under different parameters. Arnesen said he would bring in young players with potential and relatively cheap whereas Michel brought in older experienced players on much higher wages. Either way, I’m hoping by some miracle that Michel comes back as impossible as that seems.

    I’m not arguing, I just can’t see how any Greek comes in here after the NT ties Lichtenstein and that ends our chances of qualifying for the Euros and laughs about like you and an other poster have done over the last two games. All of us here are gutted as @J1078 said when the Ethniki performs like this. I have criticized the team, the coach and the EPO for these unacceptable performances but I don’t find it amusing just as I don’t think any true Italian found it funny when they were eliminated from the World Cup by Sweden they were irate and stunned. The NT will regroup we are a footballing nation and it’s not acceptable to be missing major tournaments and have these results. PA ME 🇬🇷 the greatest kratos on Gods green Earth!

    Listen guys we have to stop talking about lineups, coaches and tactics. We have to start a revolution. We need to start blaming the EPO for all of this! They are indeed at fault here. The corruption has gotten out of control and is the reason the team is falling down the rankings...

    Greece absolutely dominated this game despite their horrendous form. They lost due to a combination of a lack of execution, too many hopeful long-balls and back-passed (what's new?) and plain old bad luck. No reason to miss out on 3 points today though. Fetfa was a big positive and I'm happy to see him back in the fold. Should be one of the first names on the game sheet at this point.

    So way the you feel your fine with the way things are... Your not gutted whatsoever... Why do we? Why do comment and complain? This is a part of life... everything’s is apart of life we come here to express our opinions and love for the team and clearly the team is hitting rock bottom. It’s not fine if your passionate in a team and they keep losing. Yes it’s a apart of life but things has to change and us fans have to make our voices heard. I can’t get over this...

    Honestly I don't think the coaching has been bad. They are holding the USA defensively quite well and the 3 point shots the team is missing are wide open looks. Whats really a tragedy is this tournement was set up for them to medal and they are doing everything in their power to blow it.

    Now that he has made his debut for the Greek National Team (in the 1-0 loss) against Finland, Vrousai is entitled to have his own topic.
