    2018-2019 Europa League

    He’s the same as is Melissanidis. They’re just one step up from gangsters. Unfortunately given the state of football in Greece we are reliant on people like these to fund the clubs to levels “acceptable” to fans. Spoken “Gia olous tous ellines” by Bananas. 🙂

    Gia tis bananas is what he should have said. He couldn’t give two tosses about anything but Olympiakos winning (by hook, crook, or other means). He and others in the club are embarrassing in their behaviour including Theodoridis and Karapapas. I don’t expect much from him but to say “Gia olous tous ellines” seriously fark off. Liar. A scourge on Greek football for many years, and many more to come I’m sure.

    I wouldn’t expect anything less.

    I don’t understand where this Olympiakos is unlucky meme has come from. They are 10 points behind us and they struggle to score. They have a good foundation and play nice but that doesn’t mean you deserve to win. To win you gotta stick the ball in the net. Now all of a sudden the game against Milan is the norm, and all their other games were aberrations. We’ll see. Until proven otherwise I’m inclined to think the Milan game was the aberration. And the media ha ha. Olympiakara. Best team in Greece. But can’t win a derby. Oh that’s right they’re unlucky. And PAOK is lucky ... for 13 games. The thing with PAOK (and anyone with a brain should see this) is they only need to turn it on for 10-15 minutes and they can score 2 goals. Which is generally what they’ve done. Couple that with a rock solid defence (at least in the GSL), and most teams in the GSL being fairly crappy standard, and there you have why PAOK are where they are this year. Anyway, let’s see what the rest of the season brings. And Marinakis, the donut king, “this is for all Greece”. Fark off donut man. Been raping and pillaging Greece for how long and now he’s all “this is for Greece”. Farking banana.

    PAOK in Europe 2018-2019

    The CL qualification run was good. The EL run was very poor given the teams in our group. Lucescu (and I think the team psychologically) have prioritised the league. Even so we should have qualified. Regarding CL we all saw the beat down AEX copped. It would have been the same for us. We saw the vast difference in quality against Chelsea. Boys against men really. We have maybe 3 or 4 players who can kind of compete at that level. The football world has changed a lot in the last 15 years or so and Greece got left behind or rather, didn’t change and adapt.
  6. Ugh! What the hell happened in this EL campaign ? 3 lousy stinking points. Hats off to BATE. I remember in the post game interview after we defeated them in their home ground their manager said that they had a particularly poor game that was out of character. As for us, what is our excuse ? At least AEK and Olympiakos have proper serious teams in their campaigns. We had the mighty BATE and Vidi. What I find bewildering is the very good CL qualifying campaign we had. But now, I wonder about Lucescu's ability in Europe. GSL is one thing and Europe is another beast. Greece, sliding down the UEFA rankings with no bottom in sight. I really really hope this campaign was our "out of character" season in Europe. Then again, what about last season ? Losing to some part time vikings. Not cool man, not cool.
  7. Ridiculous to think we could qualify with 6 points. Regardless of the Chelsea result we need to get the 3 points for the coefficient rating.

    PAOK Players on Loan

    Rumours that Mystakidis is wanting to go to PAO permanently. They don’t want to deal with loan players anymore which is fair enough. I agree with that. So if true we may see Mystakidis try and push the club for an early.release. On the upside the club will need to make a decision on if they want him to be part of the club or not moving forward. Time to include the kid or let him go.

    Kougias and Karapapas howling like wolves. Aowwww. They’re crying and whinging is something else. Brings tears to my eyes. Kougias I can kind of “understand”. The man is impetuous. He can’t be helped. Karapapas where do you start. And we wonder what is wrong with Greece when you have characters like this that are actually employed and get a salary to spew their idiocy. We’ll set aside the fact that for years Oly benefited from bad refereeing but now that their team isn’t strong enough to overcome it, they want “better” referees. Maybe Karapapas should make an alliance with Savvidis to try get VAR ? But I suspect he doesn’t want better referees, he just wants referees that are more pro Oly. The hypocrisy is truly astounding. One day Oly will lose or draw a game and they won’t compile a long list of all the penalties and fouls they didn’t receive. I leave you with Hanlon’s Razor (regarding the quality of Greek refereeing which has been hollowed out for years) : Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    I go away on a cruise for 10 days and come back to find jvc has taken big dumps all over the forum. Good to see some things never change.

    El–GS-R5: Chelsea FC - PAOK (29-Nov-18, 22:00 EET)

    An apathetic 0-0 or 1-1 is about the best I think we could hope for. Regardless of what team they put on the pitch they will create 5 opportunities for every 1 we have. It just is what it is. Still you never know and this team has given us many sweet victories over the years. Here’s hoping against all the odds.

    SL–R11: PAOK - AO Xanthi (24-Nov-18, 19:30 EET)

    Respect ? Even if we win the title with zero losses they will say we won because of Syriza, Tsipras, Ivan Savvidis, Putin, Ivan the Terrible, Rasputin, Greek Referees, Foreign Referees, VAR, no VAR, you name it. I don't expect any respect. That would imply a sort of neutral analysis and I don't expect any such thing. So just keep winning and watching them squirm with how "lucky" we are. One day I will hear an opposition fan say "you know what, your team is actually pretty good" and when that happens I will know I have died and gone to heaven.
