  1. Orestis Karnezis ‒ Watford

    Question to all: Was the Watford v Chelsea match on 5 February 2018 the first time that two Greek footballers were in the starting lineup of a English Premier League match? There probably was two or three having started for Sheffield United in the English League Championship back in the late 90’s & not sure if Angelos Basinas & Kostas Chalkias ever started in the same match for Portsmouth?
  2. Orestis Karnezis ‒ Watford

    Karnezis in goal for Watford in it’s away EPL match overnight again Stoke City. Full-time 0-0. It’s funny how quiet we are when he has a good match or keeps a clean sheet but when he has one occasional bad match the whole world is reminded on this site.
  3. Orestis Karnezis ‒ Watford

    Yeah it was a surprise to see him starting. Not sure if Gomez is injured or suspended?
  4. Kevin Mirallas Is Back!

    Επίσημο: Ανακοινώθηκε ο Μιραλάς από τον Ολυμπιακό
  5. Karnezis: 31 minuets of EPL game time all season. Stafylidis: Not a single league match all season. Maniatis: Sporadic appearance for mid table Turkish club side. Tziolis: Sporadic appearance for a Saudi side in relegation. Greece’s biggest match in three years & they all start.
  6. Croatia were at a different class to Greece. A complete different level. Croatia have players whom are playing regular for FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Inter Milan etc while Greece’s players with the exception of Sokratis Papastathopoulos & Kostas Manolas are currently at smaller clubs & most not playing regular if any football.
  7. No away fans will be allowed to attend either leg of Croatia’s World Cup playoff games against Greece due to concerns over crowd violence, the Croatian Football Association (HNS) announced on Thursday. “The leaderships of the HNS and the Greek Football Association have agreed in Athens today that there will be no away fans section in either of the two legs of the World Cup playoff tie between the two teams,” the HNS said. “Having taken into consideration the risk factors and the security assessments, both football associations have made a joint decision not to sell any tickets to the away fans in either match. FIFA, UEFA and other governing bodies have been notified of the decision.” The first leg game will take place in Dinamo Zagreb’s Maksimir stadium on Nov. 12, with the return fixture at the Georgios Karaiskakis stadium in Piraeus three days later. A Euro 2012 qualifier between the two teams in 2011 was marred by serious crowd trouble in Athens, when masked Greek fans hurled flares at visiting Croatia supporters, who in turn ripped seats and threw them at riot police. Animosity between Croatian and Greek fans is fuelled by friendly ties between hard-core Greek fans and those coming from Croatia’s bitter Balkan rivals Serbia, with the brethren groups often joining forces when either team plays the Croatians at club and international levels.
  8. Greece should be well prepared having played Bosnia & Herzegovina in WCQ recently. Croatia just like Bosnia & Herzegovina have a very dangerous, big striker whom is good in the air, two world class playmakers but if there is a weakness it might be their defense.
  9. Return 2nd Leg to be played at the Stadio Karaiskaki in Piraeus.
  10. First Leg to be played at the Maksimir Stadium in Zagreb.
  11. I feel Greece will be more comfortable again Croatia’s style rather than more direct style of Denmark.
  12. European World Cup play-off draw: Northern Ireland v Switzerland Denmark v Republic of Ireland Croatia v Greece Sweden v Italy The games will take place on a home and away basis, with the first legs between 9 and 11 November and the second legs between 12 and 14 November.
  13. Probably Gekas when he scored all five goals in Greece’s 5-2 win over Latvia in a 2010 WCQ match?
  14. Road To Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup

    Greece to play either Italy, Switzerland, Croatia or Denmark in play offs...the draw takes place on Oct 17... Seeded: Switzerland, Italy, Croatia, Denmark. Unseeded: Northern Ireland, Sweden, Republic of Ireland, Greece
