  1. Thats the beauty of a campaign how its always balanced on the proverbial razors edge. He blew a chance at solidifying chances. HE BETTER take this game seriously a rout and the psyche of our Ethniki is frail at best...see last campaign. PAMAI GERA AVRIO
  2. WHo is Zeca a 29 yr old journeymen not a member of OUR youth program THE EPO make me sick. The guy was worst than Tziolis they are both zeros and thats how many we scored yesterday. We have enough #6 style mids
  3. Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    vs Belgium if Kpaps is fit ....................Karnezis...................... .....Sokratis.....Kpaps..........Manolas Lyko .....Samaris...........Taxi............Stafy .......Fortounis....Donis.......Mandalos
  4. Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    My GOD this game didnt need 2 holding mids Bouchalakis is in FORM and Tziolis Zeca are not at his level as well as Tachtsidis or Samaris Siopis the modern 6 must tackle and must play out of the back to link or switch the field Zeca Tziolis couldnt do it but THEY won headers 1960 soccer
  5. Guys after yesterdays gutless performance if KPaps is healthy SKIBBE has no choice but to play 3 in the back and squeeze the life out of Lukaku. Sokratis Manolas Kyriako are 3 of our top 7 players THEY must all be on the pitch!! I have zero confidence in Skibbe..he looked like a refreshing change..we were pressing alot more than usual before yesterdays game HAS the EPO reared its ugly head again Retsos (out of position) Tziolis Tzavellas Zeca WHAT is happening here!! Play Lykogiannis RB yes I know he is Lfooted TORO played lb whats the difference he is a proper wingback play Stafy over Tzavellas OK he has no matchplay yet THEN WTF did he sub him on. Play Bouchlakis Samari or Taxi over the useless Zeca Tziolis combo. If on Sunday we scough a beating Skibbe should be sacked ASAP and the EPO must pay as well. ...........Karnezis.......... ....Sokrati Kpap Manolas Lyko Taxi Samris Stafy ......Fortoun Bouchalaki.. ..........Donis.............If Mitro is healthy 2nd half sub!! That hammie not ready or he would have played Thursday Young attacking players this is what is required in todays game TOUCHLINE to TOUCHLINE animals not Colonais or Cones Again I have zero confidence in this cach setting up his team to go for it 0-0 mentalty THIS group better SHOW UP
  6. Paidia Skibbe set up his team to tie 0-0 we should applaud him for his tactics..but the m#$%! didnt know that this was a must WIN. 1)This game didnt need 2 defensive mids when we knew we would dominate posession IMO Zeca and Tziolis are useless the modern 6 must tackle and be able to spray and ping passes all over the pitch Tachtsidis Samaris much better. Bouchalakis was in form he was a must start this was nt portugal to say the lad would be nervous makes zero sense to me. 2) the 2 outside backs in todays soccer play touchline to touchline Retsos Tzavellas were a shambles did they overlap Mandalos or Donis once to open any spaces for them we had the F***en cover with the 2 colonais Tziolis and Zeca WHERE was Lykogiannis another in form player. 3) Where is our depth an entire country and we have no STRIKER option after Mitro dont say Karelis we dont know what he will be like after injury WTF is going on can no GREEK kid can F***en ball and put it in the net. Donis should have been played up top with Giannotas or Stafy or Lyko on the FLANK. 4) this mentality of being the minnow has never left us ZERO F***en ambition to go forward apart from Donis or Fortounis..Mandalos gets a pass Retsos and Vellios cant help his cause but he is not in the right position. we sit back vs ESTONIA and wait for the 90+ min goal..SACK the F***er SKIBBE a team always take the image of their coach..a group of gutless cowards. 5) Why do we have to play in Karaiskai game in game out. My Bro spoke with Katsouranis in Patras this summer he told him the players dont want to play there THEY LOVE playing in Crete..F*** Larissa has a nice stadium..bring Estonia to Thessaloniki I am so dejected been watching the Ethniki since 89 and I think the last time I was this pissed was after Alexandris missed his chances vs Denmark. WE NEED CHANGE I hope Belgium feed these Fn cowards their lunch Injury excuses are for losers we blew qualifications yesterday!!

    Manolas...Kyriacos...Sokratis In a 3-4-3 is a nobrainer when healty they are 3 of our top 10 players..SO as a manager how can you have 1 on the bench! Torosidis.....Samaris......Tachtsidis......Stafylidis Donis...................Mitroglou..........Fortounis It gives us so many more options going forward. and in the futur Giannotas

    Apart from Mitroglou our 3 best players are CB would love Skibbe to put Manolas Kpaps Sokratis on the field together. ...................Manolas........Kyriakos.........Sokratis.............. Toro..............Samaris........................Taxi...................Stafy..... ..........Donis..........................Mitro.......................Fortounis Adding width of Toro and Stafy who ca whip ball in it opens up space for Fortounis/Donis like Pedro Hazard get for Chelsea and letsMitro operate..I think we are tailor made for 3-4-3
  9. Was surprised to see Bakasetas in the lineup. But he was not the worst of the 2 wide men Mandalos was poor way before his miss his 1st 3-4 touches looked like he had cement in his boots. He should have been subbed at half. The miss was tragic didnt make Begovic even have to work. Fortounis miss which was not as bad BUT was one he should have converted. His corners were poor but he covered ground and did what he could in a lineup where the game plan was counter or we are happy with a draw. Zeca was solid and I was pleasantly surprised BUT in the 1st half he had MITRO wide open with a Bosnian defender dead to rights and he missed his lob or chip which would have sent Mitro in. Karnezis finally stole a result for us I believe Kapino's last game has fueled a friendly competition which is fantastic going forward. Loved what Donis brought in right off the bounce the guy was playing downhill. Next game he should get the start vs Estonia. Maybe Gianotas on the other side. GUYS we went on the road and SKIBBE almost painted 2 masterpieces if not for a late Belgian late goal and Mandalos tragic miss. The team is showing a resolve and fight that was missing last campaign. We will need this resolve because it is looking like barage for this team. CANT wait for end of August..I think Skibbe has something going with this group. When Sokratis is back I would love to see a back 3 vs Belgium we need all 3 on the pitch. ....................Karnezis/Kapino.......................... ............Manolas...KPaps.......Sokratis.......... Toro.......Samaris........Taxi...............Stafy ...Donis................Mitro..................Fortounis
  10. Babis Lykogiannis - Sturm Graz

    Yet he gets zero sniffs and Maniatis Tziolis and ZECA get a call..absolutely terrible.
  11. Any coach any sport will not tinker with a winning lineup..unless Maniatis and Stafy miss the plane they will start..Skibbe does not rate Tachtsidis in 2 games he has played 2 guys with no clubs Tziolis Maniatis a LB Stafilidis and CD KPaps...I agree a player like Tachtsidis can cut teams open with his long range passing but this coach does not think so.

    @ Original Sydney 2004 was a generational team..imagine Dabizas was there...right now our 3 best players are CB..play them..thats what coach has to do..now we need to find some pace down the wings and some inform attacking players..I believe Samaris Tachtsidis Petsos can play the middle of the parkclog it up bulldog mentality and all three can play passes up the field...great insulation behind them...I believe in Skibbe vision of a 3-5-2.

    The problem has been link up from the back to our 10 or options down the line and then of course the lack of finish. After the last qualifier I really liked what I saw from Tachtidis..vision and no fear of trying to slip long passes thru channels for Fotounis and Mitro. I loved Skibbe playing the 3 horsemen in the back...yes I know there were 4. ................Kapino/Karnezis............. .......Manolas.....Sokratis..........Papadopoulos..... Torosidis...Samaris...........Tachtsidis........Stafylidis ....................Fortounis....................... ................Pelkas..........Mitro............... Moving forward we need to find a replacement for Torosidis( I would love to see Mavrias there got preseason minutes for Sunderland at RB at did well) and Stafylidis must replace Holebas..Pelkas/Mandalos can interchange play the hot hand.As for Mitro..if he cant pick it up go with hot players ala Vardy..Giannou Velios..who cares Sammy filling it up for Cosmos why not (BTW did we miss him during the last campaign). I love that Skibbe is juggling formations..hope some fresh faces get a sniff.
