    Some process is better than no progress.
  2. Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    Half German?
  3. Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    Skibbe should definitely give Mavropanos a call-up. If he can do it with Retsos at 19, a 20-year-old playing for Arsenal`s first team should be a no brainer. It`s important to adapt him into the NT culture even though it may be several years before he is a first choice CB for Greece.
  4. Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    Lazaros is half Greek? Is that stated anywhere official?
  5. Orestis Karnezis ‒ Watford

    Defense was such a mess vs Croatia its hard to fault him, he was completely exposed. Skibbe spinelessly opting to start Maniatis over Retsos at RB was a massive error.
  6. Not sure he had a better option. I don`t know Forest`s keeper situation though? Does he have any chance of taking number 1?
  7. Amazing to see him score, but he will not have the club and fan confidence until he scores a more meaningful goal.
  8. He is back playing abroad, joining his compatriots Vellios and Bouchalakis at Notthingham Forest F.C. in England`s EFL Championship.
  9. Transfer Talk

  10. Giorgos Samaras ‒ Samsunspor

    He should have still been playing for the NT at least for this coming campaign. Very unfortunate that his career dropped off so prematurely.
  11. Joined Arsenal in January 2018 from PAS Giannina for £1.89m. Arsene Wenger initially intended to send him out on loan, but his plans changed after seeing him in training. "The first signs he showed were so encouraging that I decided to keep him," he said.
  12. I can see him getting loaned out next season, but he definitely has the potential to earn a spot at Arsenal in near future.
  13. Other Greeks Abroad

    Promising youngster Vagelis Pavlidis has joined fellow Greek striker Anargyros Kampetsis at Borrusia Dortmund II on loan until June from VfL Bochum.
  14. Giorgos Koutroubis signed with Belgian side Standard Liège on a 6 month contract with option for another year.
  15. Won PSAP's ''Best Greek Player Abroad'' award for 2017
  16. Orestis Karnezis ‒ Watford

    I think it is more that he is at his prime age as a keeper and he is a #2 with starts few and far-between. Until he plays regularly at Watford or goes to a club where he is a #1, how much can one say about him?
  17. On August 30th 2017, Retsos (19) was sold to Bayer Leverkusen from Olympiacos for €22 million, the most expensive fee ever paid for a Greek footballer.
  18. Greece is in the third division of the 2018-2019 edition. Matches will be played between 6 September 2018 and 20 November 2018, followed by a subsequent League C playoff between group winners that will award one ticket to EURO 2020. Greece are in the second of 4 pots for the group draw that will take place on 24 January, 2018. Pot 1: Hungary, Romania, Scotland, Slovenia Pot 2: Greece, Serbia, Albania, Norway Pot 3: Montenegro, Israel, Bulgaria, Finland Pot 4: Cyprus, Estonia, Lithuania
  19. Transfer Talk

    NT is very thin in the striker position.
  20. FIFA World Ranking

    It`s so easy top drop and really tough to climb back up. Greece is easily a top-30 team.
  21. Transferred to Cagliari in Serie A. Good move all things considered.
  22. Just went to Stoke City on loan for the rest of the season.
  23. You are right I would have probably preferred this in order to qualify. What Nations League gives us is more meaningful competitive games to look forward to, so I will take it.
  24. Tasos Donis ‒ VfB Stuttgart

    Mods should really be updating the thread titles. I mean how hard can this be? There are so many out of date.
  25. Yea really hard to make it back from playing on a Hungarian League relegation side.
