    Sotiris Ninis ‒ Hapoel Ashkelon

    I dont think anyone fathomed him as the present. He is clearly the past, but I guess it's just interesting to keep tabs on someone that was central topic of conversations for mny years. At this point he will retire at 30.

    When was it published?
  3. Yes it's his first one, but he's also only 20 years old. When did K Pap start getting hurt? Probably around the same age. Not saying he will end up like that, but I just don't want to see another wasted Greek talent.
  4. Kyriakos Papadopoulos 2.0. World class potential at a very young age, but injury prone. Let's hope he doesn't continue with this pattern. His season is now a complete wash.

    It's ok because Finland is not really a Pot 3 team, and Bosnia is arguably not a Pot 2 team. We did not feel the brunt of coming in through Pot 4.

    If you saw Arsenal play today, with such fast pace, quick throw ins, forward motion, keeper got would get ball into play right aways, always a high tempo, it was so refreshing to watch. if Greece just went up one gear in terms of team pace, they'd be a different team. This all stems from training and philosophy from manager.

    My take on this draw: We would have drawn a similar calibre group if we came in through Pot 2 instead of Pot 4. All very interesting matchups: Can't wait for Italy-Greece matches for obvious reasons. Greece at their best can get a result vs the Italians. We keep drawing Bosnia and have developed somewhat of a rivalry with them throughout the years. They are good, but very beatable. Finland are playing well as of late, but, as we showed a couple of weeks ago, we are the better side. They are overacheaving and are a Pot 4 team at their core. I don't think Armenia will be walk in the park, especially with Greece's habit of playing down to their opponents. This isn't a strong side, we should win both, but they sometimes come to play and Mhkitaryan is pretty good. Lietchenstein should be a breeze if we have any ambition. All in all, could have drawn a more difficult group and did not really suffer the full brunt of coming in through Pot 4.

    I am most excited about this match.

    I think our movement as a team is extremely slow. Our pace with and without the ball is devastating. We either pass the ball back, or, if it's forward, we take so much time that the opposing players can anticipate where the ball is going and form a perimeter. It's very frustrating to watch.

    We could have won both games vs Belgium, but the last minute equalizer by Lukaku was a dagger. The reason why we perform well vs quality teams is that we don't play to our weakness: offensive creativity. When we are up against an inferior side, there is too much pressure to run away with the game and our midfield often falls short. Their lack of offensive prowess overtakes the game and we are caught passing the ball aimlessly while almost never threatening the opposing goal. When we are up against better sides, the pressure to score disappears and expectations are low and that plays to our advantage. That said, this mentality is weak and we need the proper manager to help change it.

    Very interesting quotes.

    Kostas Manolas ‒ AS Roma

    I think if they buy him they intend to play him. They will make the necessary adjustments to their squad and will be clear with the Manolas camp before any contracts are signed.

    I think you misread. I believe it's Mantalos they are eyeing.

    The teams in Pot 3 aren't THAT much better than the ones in Pot 4. If we are up to task to qualify, we should be able to take any one of them. Pot 3 definitely has more quality but even the best side could have easily found itself in Pot 4. Israel, Bulgaria, Finland, Norway are not strong teams; If we land one of those we would turn the table on this draw IMO. If there is one team I would want to avoid, it's Turkey. As much as I would circle the dates on my calendar, we are already in the hole going into this campaign, and the rivalry would render these games just as difficult as the ones vs Pot 1 and 2 sides; we have enough obstacles as it is. Here's hoping for a favourable draw.
