    Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    Zeca is 100 times better than tziolis and so is Samaris. Also, kone was used as a Cm for AEK at times last yr. Tziolis is at least 8-9th down the list when it comes to options at cm

    A lot of fans have hoped for a back 3, but skibbe refuses. It’s not gonna happen even though based on our talent at the position we should... skibbe has rarely veered from 4-2-3-1... and considering that he is unwilling to change, this would be the formation we should fit players into..... .....................karnezis bakakis.manolas.Sok.stafylidis ...........zeca............samaris fetfa............mantalos.......donis ................mitroglou I would love mantalos to start playing as a #8 for AEK. Then he could slip into samaris’s spot and that would allow mantalos and pelkas/fortounis to be on the field. the playmaker role should be chosen based on form, and the leading candidates would be mantalos, fortounis, and pelkas..I also have very little faith in stafylidis, since he’s been unable to keep a regular spot. I think having donis and fetfatsidis on the field at the same time could cause some real issues for opposing teams

    Watching games from this World Cup just shows that some players should never be called up anymore. A majority of teams have athletic midfields with fast aggressive wingers. Players like tachtsidis and tziolis who r slow and lumbering should never be called upon. Players like mantalos, pelkas, fetfatzidis, donis, lazaros should be main fixtures. We need a CM to claim a spot. Samaris or Zechariah are fine but they need someone with energy, pace and skill beside one of them. It would be perfect if mantalos was played as more of a #8 for AEK. Really need someone to step up and take the #8 role

    Nikos Karelis ‒ KRC Genk

    What injury did he get recently that is serious?

    Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    I don’t rate fortounis at all.. I would rather see karelis up with mitroglou. Fortounis isn’t skilled enough to float around the field. We really need Samaris to move on and nail down a starting role. That would allow Samaris and Zeca to be the starting cm. We could even have karelis as the LW and move donis to the #10 role.

    Greeece will never do this but they need to limit the number of foreign players that play in Greece. Clubs should hire Greek coaches who want to develop Greek players.
  8. We r wasting an all time great CB duo. A coach has cost us a spot once again. We r F***ed. Epo will hire another yes man. Need someone with a set of balls like Otto had. Don’t play politics, just play the players who deserve it and will play as a team
  9. Need to schedule the maximum allowed friendlies in lead up to qualifying. Try to get a lineup with mitro, Karelis and donis in it. Don’t need fortounis. He couldn’t sniff tsiartas’s jock
  10. Fortounis is the most overrated Greek player. Slow and lazy. Plays with zero urgency
  11. There r too many players who have no business wearing the NT jersey. Need a coach who won’t play politics. Bakasetas has zero control and zero vision. Lazaros looks like an mls player, and tziolis looks like a Sunday beer league player
  12. Don’t get retsos in there.. he offers zero going forward. Need to go for it 100%. Staf for retsos and fourtounis for tziolis
  13. Maybe if donis was healthy there could have been a shot.. banking on bakasetas,gianniotas or lazaros is a bit ridiculous though. They r very average players. We r F***ed
  14. Skibbe has to go. Tziolis and tzavellas are not even close to the quality needed and both r fu kin lazy. We just don’t have any midfield players who want the ball and can distribute. NONE! Fortounis’s spot behind mitroglou has to be taken away . He doesn’t run and doesn’t have the skill to be able to play lazy. Greece is at a huge crossroads...team has very few REAL players coming up. Donis,retsos look great. But we lack wide defenders and central midfielders badly. We miss a karagounis type player to go get the ball and distribute. These lazy F***s show zero passion for their country’s minus a couple players. Things don’t look good
  15. Skibbe should be left in Croatia. Fortounis should never where that blue jersey again along with tziolis, tzavellas, and maniatis.
