    Transfer News and Rumors - Winter 2019

    Shakhov goal at 10:15. And then he cramps up ha ha.

    Transfer News and Rumors - Winter 2019

    Let’s see what happens with Swiderski. I don’t really care as I was never excited by this signing but the fact that we might lose it after acting like it’s a done deal is what I find amateurish. As for Shakhov, yes he’s definitely been solid. He has his flaws but they are flaws that are inherent to him, that is to say, his his defensive game. He’s not good when the opposing team controls possession, and drives down the middle. His attacking game though is fairly good. He can time his runs and is solid in the air too. Sometimes I think people forget the silly goals we used to concede off set pieces not so long ago. As a rotation can’t ask for much more. He’s also scored some important goals for us. Assuming he’s happy to stay at the club, I’d like him to stay.

    We already have a young guy that is developing well. His name is Koulouris! Strange. Just seems like a signing for the sake of a signing.

    There's also this video which isn't too bad. Jump to 11:11 where he discusses the PAOK squad. It's quite good. You can see the player stats in English. You can take the players stats with a grain of salt although FM has always been known for its "more" realistic player attributes. In the past the Greek League stats weren't accurate enough for my liking but I think they're getting better. Of note is the Staff List at 23:59. We have a lot of staff! Although I think some of the info must be wrong. I'm fairly sure Lubos Michel was on more than 43,5000 pa.

    You'll find other player wages at the link below. http://www.fmgreece.gr/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=14 Not sure if it's 100% accurate but I believe they are, or at least very close. I did tally them up a while back and our wage bill for the first team was approximately 27.5 million including tax.

    Varela's wage is 860K including tax. So approximately 600K. Agree Hatseridi's wage has set a bad precedent.

    First signing from new TD and it already has a bad smell to it.

    You people are all gamblers! Akpom could get injured, then what ? Karelis to me is very average. As for Bonatini, who knows if he’ll be any good.

    Media reporting Giannoulis returning from loan. Hopefully true. Will add depth to the LB position and I’m just plain curious to see how he plays in our team. Would be great if he can become a first team regular.

    Oh yeah, forgot about Biseswar! And he’s actually the most important of all. The only guy that can actually judge tempo. All the rest for all their attributes, don’t know how to dictate tempo. I dare say it will be many years, if ever, we find such a clever player again. @paokarag4 agree Varela is one notch above Crespo. The thing is they really complement each other well and they seen to have this knack where if one is off their game the other steps up. I’d really like to get Hatziisaias in the squad next year rotating with Varela/Crespo.

    4). Sort the contracts out. Just pay Varela what he wants. He deserves it. Crespo too. As for Canas, I would keep him for another season. Shakhov is the only one I’d wait till end of season.

    Bring back Jairo now! Ok maybe not. 😉 1). Get a DM now. This is even more important than replacing Prijo right now. If Canas or Shakhov are injured, carded or just out of form then we are in trouble in the middle. Just look at how many times Asteras got into the box in the first half. 2). Warda out. Henrique in. Warda’s behaviour is juvenile. I’d rather Henrique who is dying to play for the team. 3). Bring back Koulouris. Berg maybe if the price is right which I doubt. As for this guy from Wolves, they’re talking a 6 month loan. The guy hasn’t played all season ... is our role to get players fit for other clubs ? At best, he’d be match fit in 6 weeks. Can’t believe we’re even considering this guy. If it was pre season ok, but now ? Just bizarre. If I was Olympiakos I’d be praying we sign him.
  13. I do so miss the way Campos would bash his way through teams.
  14. https://inpaok.com/524731/magos-ise-re-alefante-vid/ Big win. BIG WIN to a team that has put us to the sword on many an occasion. Sounds like Akpom had a good game. I hope this isn’t just a one off and he’s the real deal. As always time will tell. Any idea how long Matos will be out for ? I suppose Kitsiou will get some game time or even the new kid Lyratzis.
