    I think our friend @PAOTHEGREAT has forgotten to take his pills. Some serious mood swings there. Even some gnashing of teeth. Maybe one day when (if ?) his club is great again, we will swell with pride and support them as they smash opponents into the CL, because apparently we used to. I can't remember doing that, but then again my memory isn't what it used to be.

    @PAOTHEGREAT you see no difference because you haven’t been paying attention. More teams are wanting foreign referees just to know that games aren’t corrupt. Sad but true. The foreign refs can make mistakes, but at least we know it’s a mistake and he wasn’t bought. As for your saviour Mitsotakis, yeah, bring on the messiah. I’ll know the league is swinging Athens way if foreign referees are not the norm next year.

    Terrible signing. I thought he’d be better than Varela given the hype. Pack your bags and gtfo.

    Oliveira has played like 90 minutes of football for us. Let’s wait a bit before we start wetting our pants. He seems good, but 12 million good ? Even 6 million is a lot for us. For 6 million I’d expect a player who is twice as good as every midfielder we currently have. As for Jaba, I know he’s only gotten regular football in the last month or so but I can see him being sold for more than Prijo.

    Cool article. I love little behind the scenes snippets like these. Gotta say, Michel has been very good for the club. Really improved the squad. It’s interesting how he pinpoints getting Vieirinha as a shift in the club. If you were to look back at my posts I was against us signing Vierinha. I really thought he was just using us for one final big pay day. And at the time the salary seemed outrageous, for what I believed was an over the hill player. How wrong I was. So wrong. He really is a leader and just having him on the pitch makes such a huge difference.

    @Molon Lave you will have to get a cool looking avatar if you want to get my vote. Just saying. 😉

    I don't like the idea of having 10 teams in a league. But I'd be willing to try it out as an experiment and see what comes of it. Minus play-offs of course. Even 12 I suppose. But it still feels wrong to me. Heck, if it was up to me, I'd make @PAOTHEGREAT life a complete nightmare and have 20 teams, like real leagues do.

    Current PAOK Roster - Latest Signings

    Nice analysis. He's definitely been "reborn" in the last few weeks. Technically, he's very good. One of the best in the squad. My big issue was where he "fit" on the pitch. He's not a 10, and he's not really a winger. And he's not quite an 8. What the hell is he ? I mean, he can play all these positions but they didn't seem to fit 100%. I would say, he's best fit is as an inside forward. But regardless, he is versatile, and if he plays with the same passion at the same level he has played the last few weeks, no one will be complaining.

    Akpom has surprised me. I didn’t think he’d be any good. Goes to show what I know. Still I miss Prijo and the fear he used to strike in the opposition.

    SL–R20: PAOK - Olympiakos (10-Feb-19, 19:30 EET)

    At 39:20 in the press conference, a British journalist ask a question. What's with that ? I've never seen that sort of thing before. Since when do Brits even care what's happening in Greece. Of course we make exceptions for @DunfermlineAthleticPAOK.

    Ha ha, Savvidis should have purchased 30,000 neck braces and handed them out to fans as they came into the stadium. Might make this my screen saver for a while. 3 donuts for Marinakis. Or should I say 3 bananas.

    Don’t forget AEK. Now that they have they old manager back, they will be the BEST in no time. Give it a couple of weeks.

    Cup-QF-L1: Panionios - PAOK (06-Feb-19, 19:00 EET)

    @paokarag4 chillax with replacing my beloved Crespo so soon! On a serious note, it’s hard to say until we see Ignason’s “style”. Crespo and Varela are complementary. They aren’t the same sort of player. I am just relieved we’ve got another option for CB. Let’s face it, if Varela or Crespo got injured for a long period, we’d be in trouble. I don’t believe Malezas has the quality anymore and I wouldn’t want to take a chance on Tosca. Ideally all 3 are rotated. I don’t see the sense in playing say Varela and Ignasson all the time and then having Crespo not match fit or his morale being low. It also opens up the option to play with 3 at the back. I know Lucescu isn’t a fan but I think there are times in Europe where you might need it. Anyway, this is the way it should be. Solid players all fighting for games and giving depth to the squad.
