    2018-2019 UEFA Nations League C

    I can't believe im having this argument with you right now... first of WTF are you even talking about?? Obviously when I said we I meant the team.. I didn't really think people would get confused over the term we.. so just so I'm clear from this entire topic of talking about the national team you decided to chime in on the word "we"... and once again thanks for clarifying that "non of us on this board on are on the team" lmao

    Okay I guess I needed to dummy it down for you since you obviously didn't understand what I meant... Thanks for clarifying that we are not on the team I guess I can unpack my bags now since I won't be starting the first game of the nations league..

    Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    Dean I do agree with you that we need more of an attack no question, I have heard a lot of guys referring to that one game against Hungry which didn't mean anything for us as we were eliminated by then which takes pressure of the players, if that game meant something I don't think you would have seen 4 goals by Greece as they would have played more conservative.. The other issue is yes we scored 4 goals but we allowed 3 which is pretty bad.. Don't you guys notice by now when Greece push forward and attack we leave our back end vulnerable and we always get scored on.. As much as I'd love to see Greece play strong and attack we need to find a middle grown. We can't play the two extremes of going all out attack because we get scored on easily and we can't play all back deference because we can never produce a goal and only get 1 to 2 chances a game.. We need to somehow find a balance of defence and offence.. This World Cup showed us that parking the bus does not work and a good offence will break yuo down, also an all out attack left teams vulnerable to the counter.

    Guys we better take this Nations league serious as it might be our only chance to qualify for the euros.. I think do to our FIFA rankings we will have two difficult teams in our group at the euro qualifications so we better take advantage of this opportunity we have now..

    @Rockafeller Skank Sorry to say bro but you are delusional if you think Tziolis may be our best option at Midfield...

    I agree that we ended up playing two of the 3 best teams that were in the World Cup and if Donis and manolas were playing the game in Croatia would have been different. Now we might have not got a result but I don't think we would have lost by more then 1 goal which would have given us a chance in the 2nd game.. I don't see Skibbe moving away from Tziolis at all if he wasn't going to use him then he wouldn't have played the entire game in our friendly and he would have tried someone else.. I truly think Skibbe is still not that knowledgable of the Greek players because if he was there is no way he would continue to choose the line up he does.. This nations league will show us a lot and ultimilety what we can except from this coach going forward.. We can not continue to play guys that don't get regular playing time, and where we are unsure about a certain postion then you need to pick players with speed who can make up for their mistakes.. We need to stop playing guys that are slow and lazy like Taxi... lets see what happens but until i see changes with the call ups and line up selections then I don't except anything to change from our last campaign regarding players..

    Don't be so sure Argy, I don't have confidence that Skibbe will select him.. I hope I'm wrong.

    Okay so I'm pretty sure Fetfa wasn't picked so far because of where he played yet Tziolis has been a regular this entire time..lol lets see now that he goes to OLY what Skibbe's excuse for not calling him up will be...

    I have said it for a while Samaris and Taxi are not our answers, If we start with them at mid again we will continue to have the same problems... Samaris makes more mistakes then good plays and he should be a bench option not a starter. Taxi should not be a starter besides his shot and height he offers nothing, He is slow and lazy as f..ck... Since we lack talent in our mod then we need to compensate with guys that work their asses off and have good speed as speed can make up for lack of talent sometimes.. I also would like to see Kone And Fetfa on this team..We need to fill our mid with a couple of guys that have Zeca's speed and work ethic because we know we don't have much talent in that position... Sad to say but if we continue with the same line up we will not qualify for the euros... The World Cup has should us parking the bus does not work and eventually you will be broken down, The Greek team needs to play smart defence obviously but we need speed and guys that can at least make some passes in order to create some chances.. I don't know what the answer is for our mid postion..

    We can forget about seeing new guys or even changing guys positions around, Skibbe will stick with what he knows and only play the guys he's comfortable. He sees us going to the playoffs a success not a failure like we all do so I'm so worried he will pick his trusted line up and try to advance that way.. So in short be prepared to see the likes of Tziolis, Tzavellas, Bakastas and so on....

    NT Friendly Games

    If you noticed anything from this world cup Defence alone isn't enough as even great defensive teams are allowing more goals than usual. Greece need to obviously keep within in their strengths and focus on their D but need to push the ball and start getting more creative offensively and start getting more shots towards target and not this 1-3 shots on target for the entire game.. This will change I believe only when we find a solid midfielder that can control the field..
  13. Man I hope he gets a call up for our NT now that he will be on Oly..

    I thought the same thing... After seeing Croatia maybe we weren't actually that bad as they look pretty fierce... We knew Belgium is world class... I still think we made huge mistakes with our line up in game 1 vs Croatia that cost us big time but I don't Think we could have beat them regardless after what I've seen with them.. We were also the only team to get a point against Belgium and were about 10 minutes away from winning even with a man down.. I also agree if we were in a couple of the other groups we probable would have advanced... We still have major issues we need to fix especially in our midfield but after seeing Belgium and Croatia I don't feel as bad as I did back when we lost in the playoffs..

    Nah man i disagree if we are starting Taxi and Tziolis we are toast.. Not sure why Skibbe didn't experiment with new players at Mid during the friendlies... What was he looking to get out of th Taxi Tziolis combo??? Taxi has two left feet and is slow, from time to time he can look okay at Olympiacos because he has much better players sourounding him. We need to find two guys that can move with speed and also take control of the game badly.
