  1. Stop being reasonable. It doesn't agree with being a Greek.
  2. All our signings have been duds. Maybe a bit harsh but considering roughly 7.5 million was spent on Augusto, Esiti and Stoch you can't say they've been successful signings. I would've thought 2 out of the 3 minimum would be first team players. We need to do better with our transfers in the summer.
  3. Wernbloom ha ha. What can you say. Technically he's contracted until 2021 so not sure if he'll be leaving.
  4. Unsurprising result. Almost every player in the squad is down one or two levels from last season. I don't want to get rid of Abel because I'm not confident we'll find better but if Lucescu was to come back I'd give Abel a bunch of flowers and show him the door. He seems to lack common sense. Maybe he thinks he's playing a video game.
  5. His descent has been astonishing.
  6. Why not, if he's better than what we have ?
  7. Yiankos, I saw the incidents. Not only were they penalties, but they were red cards. In fact, if it were up to me I would make a new category, the black card. Especially for PAOK players. One black card equals one year suspension.
  8. I remember a guy in Uni that was from Thessaloniki. We christened him "O voulgaros" of course, ha ha. He would mention this guy "manavis" from time to time, and lo and behold there is an article on him. Anyone heard of "manavis" by any chance ? https://inpaok.com/633586/manavis-ne-tha-ertho-touba/
  9. For RB we have Matos, Rodrigo and even Limnios who would actually do a capable job. On the left you can even play Matos who used to play that position often when he was Russia.
  10. Not allowing owners and other club officials anywhere near referees should be rule number 1 of any "reforms". I'm holding my breath in 3 ..2 .. 1.
  11. Strong performance. Could have scored quite a few more had the finishing been a bit more clinical. Paschalakis dropping the ball and looking around in the wrong direction was quite funny, actually made me laugh. Lamprou getting a little greedy. Overall, encouraging. Bad news for pash, another solid performance by Vieirinha at RB. You do realise he played that position in Germany for 4 years. One day you will come around to my way of thinking young one.
  12. Lamprou seems to have the knack of finding space. He’s had limited minutes and yet has had over a dozen very good goal scoring opportunities. I hereby dub thee our Inzaghi.
  13. Good result and a great strike from Araujo. What is the world coming to when Meli actually invests in the squad. Araujo will give more options and balance up front. Just make sure to send him the memo saying he’s not allowed to score against PAOK. 😀
  14. Man, that's crap news regarding Crespo. He's been such a dependable player for us. Good boy too. None of the antics like Varela when it came to contract negotiations. Varela at his absolute best I would say is better, but he's not been there for quite a while. Give me a dependable Crespo any day. Yes, let's see if Mihaj can play at this level. In other news, Prijovic is apparently a free agent. Does that mean we could sign him even though the transfer window is closed ?
  15. Great to see him score and a superb goal! But the selfish side of me was hoping he'd be riding the bench for the rest of the season in the small hope that we might sign him next season.
  16. I don't know what the answer is Athens4. But doing nothing is not the answer either. I'm sure there are options out there. If I wait for Greeks to be educated in this sphere of life, I guess I'll be waiting for a long time.
  17. I have no doubt the current "pick a game out of the next 4 games" system was devised to benefit the big boys. In this case OFI is using it to their own perceived benefit. It is what it is even though it has a bad smell to it.
  18. I agree the rule is a bit odd. I guess it gives teams flexibility. Moving to the side a little, what I don’t get is why there are even bans for getting “x” number of cards. Who cares ? If a team wants to risk getting stacks of yellow cards each game then they also risk getting more reds. That should be incentive enough. Anyway ... As to OFI resting half their squad, I guess they figure the chance of getting a point is low so might as well rest their players and use them in the next game. Not cool but I get it. As for Vieirinha at RB, not if pash has anything to say about it. 😀
  19. It’s been mentioned how many times. Seat allocations along with ID would solve this problem fairly quickly. You know, like how you go to a concert and have to sit at your allocated seat. It’s 2020 but when it comes to Greece it’s 1980.
  20. There *has* to be a better way. It's not like all these years of bans have really achieved anything.
