  1. I don’t have a problem with Socrates and Manolas but they they did it was wrong and especially at that level. They should have done it behind closed doors.. the other problem I have with them is they were pissed off that certain players were not called up for example Toro, They need to accept who ever the coach decides to bring in as this is not there decision they are not a coach and they can’t walk around shrugging there shoulders if they don’t agree with a call up or make it public.. I don’t like anything that clown of a coach Ang did and he deserved to go. What happens under JVS if for example he chooses to play Manolas and bench Socrates?? Don’t you think that will cause a problem for these guys which will trickle down to the team?? I’m torn on this one. Them complaining about certain players not being called up makes lean towards the side that says don’t call them up for now..
  2. I honestly think I wouldn't bring them back. We are building something good right now why do we want to take the chance to rock the boat with these guys as they seem to have in there mind that they control the team and if they don't agree with something or they get benched for a younger player I don't think it will sit well with them.. time to move on from them.. I don't see them coming here and just letting the coach do what he wants to do. can you imagine Manolas or Socrates sitting on the bench and not playing?? they would cause a stink about it. They caused a huge issue with the previous coach because Toro wasn't called up to the squad and that's why you need to keep guys like this away from the NT. On there play alone they would be a big help but its not worth it for me to disrupt the culture and confidence JVS has started to build with the team.
  3. Dude you are an idiot.. what are you even talking about? You come on here and have nothing positive to say.. You make these smart ass sarcastic comments.. You can feel and think what you want no one cares but for everyone else that is somewhat knowledgeable about soccer can see a drastic change in the way the team has looked.. Maybe they make the World Cup maybe they don’t who the f..k knows but at the end of the day the team is looking good and people have the right to feel optimistic wether you agree or not.. Your the type of guy that just wants to come on and say I told you so if they don’t qualify but honestly know one gives a s%$#! dude.. So the fans should not feel optimistic at all right? They should be as negative as you are... Laugh all you want but me personally I like what I saw from the team ever since they played Italy but there is no point in wasting my time on you because you will find something negative to say regardless..
  4. Dude why you so bitter? Why are you even here? You started out being here for legit reasons and we welcomed you but now your turning into a trolling F..ck this is your first time ever to make a tourney be proud and shut up and When you win a euro championship then You might have some bragging rights.. Go troll somewhere else.
  5. II don’t think personally I would bring back Socrates and Manolas, this team has flourished without them. I do think they are good players but they are part of the big problem and there negativity has allowed this team to drop so low.. As leaders they did nothing to make this team better but rather complain and if they didn’t agree with something it would effect there play on the field.. I don’t care who you are you never go to the media and the Epo and demand a coach gets fired or you will not play again that is just classless and you put yourself above the team. Instead of supporting the young players maybe they act as an intimidating factor to certain players and I think they are to involved with who plays and who doesn’t and that won’t fly with JVS.. I would leave them off the team and move forward with this new generation of players.. Anyone that has anything negative to say about this team right now give your head a shake and think back to the style of play you were use to watching and where this team has been the last 5 years.. This football we are playing right now is even much more attractive then even in the early 2000’s where we would park the bus and squeak out 1-0 wins.. I truly believe we are on our way to building something good and a new style of football for the Greek team!!
  6. I guarantee Samaris , Mitro are gone I’m still not 100% sure if Socrates and Manolas will be part of the team. As it looks right now I don’t think they will and I think it all has to do with attitude. It’s no coincidence that JVS said the egos and need to go and coming here for a good time is over and then the very next game Manolas and Socrates are out and all off a sudden we rack up 3 wins in a row with our most exciting football we’ve played in years.. Katsouranis said in an interview after the game on sport24Gr that finally the NT have found a coach that knows how to coach.. The Nations league can’t come soon enough for me as I can’t wait to see what this team can do.. There’s been a bunch of us in here saying since we are losing we would rather lose with our young guys. We’ve all been frustrated for way to long so let’s enjoy this and be excited for our next campaign it’s been a long time coming hopefully we keep improving going forward..
  7. We also beat you at home in the Nations league and beat you again today so I wouldn’t be so surprised.. also let’s not forget Greece before our main core players retired after the World Cup in Brazil which they made it to the knockout stage were making tournaments on a regular basis. This is a rebuild for us. We also beat Bosnia who handed it to Finland pretty easily in there last match. I’m saying this now because your dropping the excuses with the drinking and partying..In saying all of this I do wish you good luck in the euros but Greece are a much more successful side in there history then Finland.. All the best in the Euros though and I’m glad the team can bring your country some joy.
  8. The best thing that happened for JVS was going down 1-0 and seeing how this group would respond and they came out and scored 2 to get the win which showed a lot of character.. I know guys were negative In the first half calling certain players and the coach out which is fine but like I said in my first half comment this is the best and most attractive football we have played in years. The team was hungry, fast and some fantastic passing. The best thing that Manolas and Socrates did for this team was get Angelo fired as it got us JVS who I’m sold on now.. Boys we couldn’t beat the Faroe Islands with Manolas,Socrates, Mitro and Samaris so we get a coach that comes in and cuts all of them from the team and builds a team around young guys and look at the results. There is no doubt in my mind if JVS was here from the beginning we would have no problem finishing 2nd In this group. We have scored 5 goals in our last 3 games which rarely ever happened before as we would go games with no more then one attempt on goal and now we get 29.. This is a huge change and we are an upcoming team..
  9. We don’t play again until September I hope that doesn’t ruin our momentum..
  10. Damn it I quickly hoped in the shower and missed the goal was it nice?
  11. At the end of the day we played much better then Finland and if we continue this under JVS we should continue to improve. Lets not forget how much we would complain with every other coach that we had no passing no possession no attacking boring ack pass and finally we are looking good offensively with good passing and speed but lacking some finishing. This is a new coach and he will see where the weaknesses are and adjust accordingly. Eventually with Fortounis back that will eliminate Bakasetas and I think Donis will start be used more. Staf is okay against teams that don't really have a superstar but he will get exposed there against a team that have some stars. Lets not forget how easily Manolas got beat by the Lichtenstein player which cost us 3 points. We have a lot to be optimistic about as we dominated this first half but one mistake cost us.. So far I like what ive see never since the Italy game and a little more tinkering of players like Retsos when healthy and fortounis should make us that much better.
