  1. I hope this time it’s not the case but I think you are right. EPO don’t care about the success of the team. They are money grabbing morons.
  2. He says all the right things and it was also interesting he said this: “Στην Ολλανδία η ομοσπονδία είναι εντελώς ανεξάρτητη και ο προπονητής διαλέγει τους καλύτερους. Δεν υπάρχουν πολιτικές ισορροπίες κι αυτό θα κάνω κι εγώ". He says the Dutch federation is completely independent and the coach picks the best players. There is no political balances and that’s what I’m going to do. (Meaning he will pick the best players.) What I get from this is he is indirectly saying that the EPO are political and are involved in call ups. Where as in the Netherlands it’s not like that. Also says this: “Για το αν έχει συζητήσει με την ΕΠΟ πλάνο ανάπτυξης: "Ναι, είναι μέρος της συμφωνίας μας. Προς το παρόν όλη μας η προσοχή είναι στην ανδρών και τους επόμενους μήνες θα αρχίσουμε να βάζουμε και τους προπονητές των μικρών εθνικών ομάδων στο ίδιο κλίμα. Θα συζητήσουμε με την ομοσπονδία για αυτά τα πλάνα και με ποιο τρόπο θα τα υλοποιήσουμε". On whether he has discussed with the Development Plan to EPO: “Yes, it is part of our deal. At the moment all our attention is on the men’s team and in the coming months we will start putting the coaches of small national teams in the same climate. We will discuss with the federation these plans and how we will implement them. " I don’t get what’s part of the deal exactly? But the less EPO has a say in the team the better. He says all the right things but actions speak louder than words and all that is left is execution.

    We played our best possible players under Ranieri and Markarian. Look what happened. Skibbe played Tziolis, Tzavellas and Maniatis altogether against Croatia where we got smashed. That was the worst thing he could’ve done. With Manolas suspended it didn’t help. If was available in that 1st leg I firmly believe we would’ve a better chance in the 2nd leg. Anastasiadis played completely differently each ups each time. Played Fortounis ST and Siovas DM against Italy. Didn’t make sense then doesn’t make sense now. With Vant Schipt, I can’t argue with the line ups he put. He benched Kourbelis and Kolovos and rightfully so. He clearly believes the youth can outshine some of the current played and so he should. And so do I. Samaris and Torosidis should be the veterans that should be dropped.
  4. I agree. Retsos is a smart young player won’t be too long until he gets his starting spot back. Played very well in the Greece u21 loss to Germany. Very versatile players. Played well at CDM/CM. And covered a lot of ground.
  5. I think the team lacks cohesion. We need to find a team and stick to it. I hope with this next restart proper players with talent are called up and players who are going to be needed down the road. Meaning Samaris shouldn’t play. We are lacking creativity and finishing. We need more quality outwide too. These areas need fixing. I don’t know if we have the quality players to help this. Maybe L.Lamprou gets a look. Maybe Galanopoulos too. I’d like to see Lykogiannis again. Koutris should be our starting LB. Vlachodimos should go back in goals. Donis needs to start in this team. Fetfatzidis has to be in this team. Fetfatzidis is one of a few players with quality. Hopefully we start looking at Greek heritage players like Vasiliadis who plays at Paderborn and is the reason why they got promoted.
  6. You are right in a way. Manolas is the most useful player to have on this team. Great at headers, especially in corners. Great defender and has pace. I was really surprised he couldn’t catch the Lichtenstein forward. I expected more. Even Sokratis was trying to catch him. After they scored my heart sunk. I couldn’t believe it also Barkas should’ve done better but he isn’t to blame. Samaris and Bakakis are not good enough for this team. We have to find replacements. Maybe Tachtsidis needs to come back.

    EPO I hope your reading this You are at fault for all the failures the national team have had in the past and present. Your corruption has killed the national team and you all are to blame especially you Grammenos. You have embarrassed and destroyed the Greek national team. You all should be ashamed of yourselves as you only care about the money and not about the team. Let the coach take care of the team. I hope they read this. It has become beyond a joke.
  8. Listen guys we have to stop talking about lineups, coaches and tactics. We have to start a revolution. We need to start blaming the EPO for all of this! They are indeed at fault here. The corruption has gotten out of control and is the reason the team is falling down the rankings...

    The problems the Greek national team have at the moment are because of the EPO. They need to get their act together. The corruption is killing the team and they don’t care. They simply don’t care about the team. We need changes and fast!
  10. With all do respect can you tell me why are you here then if this doesn’t mean anything.
  11. So way the you feel your fine with the way things are... Your not gutted whatsoever... Why do we? Why do comment and complain? This is a part of life... everything’s is apart of life we come here to express our opinions and love for the team and clearly the team is hitting rock bottom. It’s not fine if your passionate in a team and they keep losing. Yes it’s a apart of life but things has to change and us fans have to make our voices heard. I can’t get over this...
  12. We support and follow the team. All we want is for the team to achieve and make us proud. Ofcourse we are apart of the team. Why are you here if you don’t care??
  13. I know man I can’t describe how angry and disappointed I feel. Who ever is laughing is not Greek. You shouldn’t be on these forums...
