    NT Friendly Games

    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.

    NT Friendly Games

    If we don't win our Nations league group then we need to fire Skibbe before the euro qualifiers in the spring.

    NT Friendly Games

    Greece right now need all the help they can get so if the nations league gives us another shot I'm all for it, chances are we will be the 3rd best team in our group for the euro qualifiers so we need this nations league plus it makes the games more meaningful then friendlies...

    Skibbe will definatley put Fortounis ahead of Pelkas and Mantalos ahead of Laz..

    NT Friendly Games

    If the Iranians are to offended to play in Athens because of our billboards that show alcohol and anything else that might offend their idiotic believes then i say F..k them go arrange a match with another Muslim country... The Epo is absoloutley sleeping when it comes to scheduling matches.. We desperately need more practise time to figure some s%$#! out. We should have had a couple more friendlies this month as our last two were wasted by the German bench boss.

    NT Friendly Games

    We completely wasted our friendlies something only Skibbe is capable of.. He has no clue what he's going to do and he's going to keep making decisions on the fly.. Tziolis, Taxi, and company will be ready to go and play some big minutes for us... Instead of using this opportunity just to tinker with a few posisitons the idiot coach had a complete overhaul in our last game but yet somehow didn't find the need to change Tziolis... This coach is clueless and I'm not seeing anything good coming out of the nations league.. He now has no choice but to play the same line ups as he did last World Cup campaign because he hasn't made any changes...

    http://www.agonasport.com/agonasport-allnews/fetfatzidis-looking-for-next-career-stop looks like Fetfa is done is Saudi Arabia and Aek and Oly are interested in him.. Maybe if this does happen Skibbe might give this guy a chance..
  8. We have been asking for friendlies for two reasons... 1) to move up the FIFA rankings in order to start get more favourable draws, but with this loss we know will drop further. 2)To try out a few players who we think can make a difference and upgrade our position especially in Midfeild and maybe a few wingers not an overhaul of guys that wont see the team. Having this friendlie did us more harm than good as we know chances are most of these guys wont play for our team and seeing Tziolis and Taxi at Midfield which is our weakest postion did exactly what for us?? The mid position we needed to experiment with the most Skibbe stuck with Tziolis. Also our team can't score goals but yet we have a guy in Fetfa that is scoring regularly but he doesn't even get a sniff in a game like this?? i guess we can afford to turn down guys that score since our team can score at will.. SMH
  9. Im done trying to figure the madness behind this coach.. Ive been very critical of Skibbe and i can honestly say we have no chance of doing anything good while he is coaching us... Has this fool not seen enough of Tziolis and Taxi??? We know Fortounis hasn't looked good so you tinker there with Pelkas and maybe someone else, we know you can tinker a bit with our wingers, we know Laz,Donis Mitro are going to be regular starters so why NOT make moves in the positions that we need the most help?? Instead you start Bakasetas,Tziolis,taxi...WTF are you thinking? Would this not have been a great opportunity to start Fetfa? Ive lost complete hope. I now wish we didn't make it to the playoffs with Croatia so this guys ass would be gone.. We got absoloutley nothing out of this match except for a drop in the rankings and losing to another s%$#! team..
  10. skibbe goes from one extreme to the next... he is an absolute clown and is clueless.. instead of keeping the core players that we know are going to start and just tinker with a few players he goes to the complete extreme and puts a line up like this together.. We know who our back end is and we know who our strikers are.. our weakest position in mid he plays taxi and Tziolis with a bunch of guys that are not going to make this team anyway so what is his thinking?? We are now going to drop even further down the rankings... I think the best think that can happen is we don’t make the Euros and get this clown fired..
  11. Socrates and Manolas are the only thing that gives this team any hope, Without those two this team is absoloutley garbage..
  12. Very weird line up... I don't know what Skibbe plans to gain from this match other than another lose and drop in the standings. I really don't understand his choices at all.. If we are going play and look like this I'd rather not have any friendlies ffs..
  13. No surprise that we are losing.. I think Skibbe has no clue what he wants our line up to look like in September.. I think more important is winning these games to move up the FIFA rankings but obviously Skibbe doesn't see it that way..

    Guys I don't want to see on the team or starting for the NT. 1) Tziolis - form obvious reasons 2)Tzavellas 3)Taxi - Is s%$#! and slow as hell 4)Samaris - Only as a bench option but not a starter 5)Fortounis - Bench option not a starter anymore 6)Bakasetas - No where near good enough to play for us as we have much better options. 7)Staf - He's okay but not good enough as a starter good bench option to have I still don't know what our best midfield option is. Maybe Zeca and Kourb. I think Pelka should start over Fourtounis for now as he brings much more energy and pace. Maybe also mantalos when he returns. Donis and Laz on the wings and Mitro in the middle. I also like Bakakis. Also we looked better in the Egypt game 1 because it was Egypt and 2 because more guys played in there natural position and we had much better flow. Skibbe has the habit of asking guys to play where they are not comfortable and that even should with Retsos.. I was always a guy to say Greece can only win by playing defence and we should focus on defence first but as i see these new generation of players we need to start thinking of having a good balance of offence and defence and not be afraid to press and F*** just sitting back. God knows we need all the chances we can get to score and we aren't going to do that by just sitting back anymore..
  18. guys are we actually play that good? I’m listening to it on the radio and the announcers are talking about how good we are playing and this is a nice different look for the team. How they playing boys?
  19. Not sure what channel but I know Agona is offering it again for $8
  20. ^Exactly that’s why I’m saying I would give Pelkas a shot over him.. bottom line it hasn’t worked out for us with fortounis.. His position is so critical in setting up our attack that he just can’t cut it.. we need to look at different options... He cant drive our offence as we’ve seen... I like the guy but he’s not working out for such a big role on the NT..
  21. Fortounis does get some quality chances from time to time but honestly he looks like one of our laziest players that kind of sucks the energy out of the team.. yes he is a good player but rarely shows it for the national team.. I think Pelkas should be given more opportunities going forward. Baks should not be a starter for this team as he is just s%$#!... Samaris shows flashes but mostly disappoints and his pass selection and giveaway from time to time is mind blowing... Donis is one player that brings a lot of energy and speed and usually creates something for us... Mitro is our go to go but such a one dimensional player that cant do anything else but score from time to time... We cant score goals and we hardly get any shots on target, our offence looks horrible yet we don't give a guy a shot that scores regularly that has great ball control and some speed in Fetfa.... This is crazy... Skibbe has no system and no clue of what to do out there and what players to choose.. We seriously cant move forward with him here..... The fact that he said in his press conference he was very pleased on how we played and he felt very positive just shows me how much of a useless coach he is..
  22. Let me rephrase that.... I meant Greek players or limited talent pool.. either way Skibbe is s%$#! and we are so pathetic when we have the ball..
  23. Nothing good came out of having this friendly.. The only thing it showed was how pathetic of an attack we have where we don’t force there goalie to make 1 save and how pathetic of a coach who is absolutely clueless when coming to subs and player selections. This coach has no game plan... Man I think we should stop having friendlies as we are just going to be falling further and further down the rankings... How much more of this can we take ffs... This pathetic coach will not get us to the euros...
  24. The sad thing is the line up that we started with will be pretty much the line the Skibbe would choose in important qualifier games... I think we all need t face the fact that we just aren't a good team with an even worse coach... As much as it hurts to say i cant see things changing anytime soon..
  25. Same old story.... Get ready to fall further down the FIFA rankings... My eyes hurt watching this team..
