    Transfer News and Rumors - Summer 2018

    In other gossip Koulouris may go out on loan. Will we have any strikers next season ? It’s going to be a glorious few months for gossip.

    Transfer News and Rumors - Summer 2018

    The amount is kind of meaningless. What’s important is where does the club see Paschalakis in the future. If they see him as our GK for the next 2, 3 or more seasons then the amount is pitiful considering we don’t need to sell. If the club think Rey or Glykos are just as good then it’s a good offer and you’ll probably never get a better offer. It all depends how the club values him. If they really think he’s the best of the 3 then why would you compromise your already tough CL qualifiers for the sake of what’s really small change.

    Another Mass Shooting in the US

    Sadly the only way this will *maybe* change is if there are a series of mass shootings one after the other.

    Transfer News and Rumors - Summer 2018

    I would've thought Kyriakos Papadopoulos but if what he's saying is true then I'm guessing Stafylidis or Berg. As for the LB position 100% bring back Giannoulis. Leovac was average and has no heart. Leveque was comic relief. Azevedo is actually not bad but his wages are that of a top player which he is not in this team.

    Yeah man, bring on Ajax. We'll get then at the 3rd 4th 5th 6th attempt.

    Wouldn't think so but if he has oh boy what a mess. Either his contract with Olympiacos would be void or more likely AEK would be entitled to some sort of fair compensation.

    Now that it appears Lazaros won’t be continuing at AEK I think the club should make a serious effort to sign him. Find out what Olympiakos is offering then offer double. Surprise Lazaros, I was just kidding. We don’t really want you back.

    Azevedo from what I saw he was all right. Not bad but we want great players, not just all right. In Matos and Vieirinha we have the two best full backs in Greece. I’d rather get Giannoulis from Atromito and give him game time. It’s been great to see Pelkas one of our boys become a proper first team player. Malezas I think we should renew even he doesn’t play much. Mak I hope we sign. I’m hoping he can find that form from two seasons ago when he was killing it. It will be interesting to see what happens with wingers next season with Mystakidis, Henrique, Warda still to come back. Mystakidis is going to struggle to get game time.

    Cup-Final: AEK - PAOK (12-May-18, 20:30 EEST)

    There’s a right way to do this and I thought they did it well. Good on them. Nothing disrespectful in what they said. I’m just so glad for the players and fans we got something from this season. We sure deserved it. Sheez we gave AEX a beating! Hopefully many more to come. As for myself I’ve been doing random fist pumps the last few days and can’t stop smiling. Might have to go see a doctor soon if this doesn’t stop.

    PAOK FC Head Coach (Razvan Lucescu)

    I’ve been very impressed with him. Not so much the tactics as that is subjective anyway. But the way he seems to have won over the players. We should also note that he has the team playing at a good level more consistently than ... well ever. There, now he’s jinxed.

    Transfer News and Rumors - Summer 2018

    Contracts expiring are Malezas, Azevedo and Mak. Malezas is a tricky one. He’s a leader and been great for the club but maybe it’s time to move on. Then again maybe he can play one more season.

    One more season for Biseswar although I hope we renew him for many years to come. Maybe he can become our next “Vukic” like super sub.

    Transfer News and Rumors - Summer 2018

    Aye, I’ll be surprised (but very happy) if we can keep them all. All 3 will be hard to replace. People think we’ll just use any new money to get replacements but it isn’t always that simple. Players like Prijovic and even Biseswar (good lord I love his old school style of play) don’t come around to often. Pelkas FINALLY has become a man and understands how to impose himself on a game and how to play to his strengths. Another one who’ll be hard to replace.

    PAOK in Europe 2018-2019

    If we kept Prijovic AND we got a quality DM AND a CB similar to Varela, I think we could take on Ajax. Not that we couldn't beat them now but realistically the odds are the usual 75/25.

    Foreign referee. Shameful that it has to resort to this. Necessary, and yet still shameful.

    Better for Paschalakis. The NT culture is toxic. I only hope he doesn't take it to heart.

    Paschalakis not getting called up should bother me.

    Mao Mao. Mao Mao. I'm sure Melissanidis would be just as generous with his "invitation" if PAOK had somehow won in the courts. Mao Mao. Mao Mao.

    Ha ha ha. I'm sure he's trying to legitimize the Cup somehow. I think he knows the "sta xartia" tag is gonna stick for ... for ever.

    PAO should be like AEK and not pay back any tax to the state. Leave that for idiots like Savvidis. Greece, the land where you are an idiot if you pay your tax. Anyway, let's see what happens June 30.

    I actually prefer Vieirinha as left back. If you were the opposition full back, who would you prefer to have to mark. Mak and Vierinha or Vieirinha and Azevedo/Leovac. It's like you're playing with 2 wingers on that flank. And it's not like he doesn't know how to defend. He's been doing it in Germany for 5 years. Vieirinha, you can tell by watching, is light years ahead of most players in the GSL. I didn't want him to come to Greece but he's proved me very very wrong. End of the day, I think he plays better facing forward rather than with his back to goal. If we find a LB that has the attacking qualities of a Matos then fine but that's not easy to find. Matos, he's not normal. I think the most important position to fill is DM, by a long shot. Followed by CB. Then, it depends on who leaves. Obviously if Prijo leaves that becomes top priority.

    One rule for some and another rule for others. I like how EPO made a rule but when PAO were on the cliff's edge they were eager to overturn it. Integrity hey. But hey it makes sense. PAO is a bigger club than clubs like Milan, Juve. Even with Rangers, the other clubs in Scotland had the guts to punish them. In Greece everyone is bought and sold. A rule was made at the beginning of the season but (and this is important) it was never really intended for clubs like PAO. There are rules for the "commoners" and for the "elite" there are others. PAO ... the elite. Elite indeed. I did always think PAO would be saved at the last minute but I never thought it would be like this. The ironic thing is it solves nothing. Ouzonidis has one foot out the door. What talented players PAO does have (and they actually do have a very good youth academy) will leave the club for better offers or just for the prospect of actually being paid. Alafouzos has somehow managed to desecrate a club with so much history and EPO and the other clubs instead of throwing him out on his ass pander to him. The GSL definitely needs PAO. But not a PAO that is like this. Better off getting relegated and coming back with a new owner rather than this sickly team they are now. The 0-3 we got in Athens, in year gone by, I would've been so happy with such a result. This result felt like ... nothing really.

    Great news for Alafouzos. How much lower can he sink PAO ?
