    Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    Yeah but when you said big spenders Panathinaikos got most of not all their players for free. You can’t really in my opinion count the wages for anything. Also how do find out the wages for the players??

    I don’t think that it means that file. It’s just showing the total market value in descending order.

    That’s how we should honestly set up the team. But I over heard Panathinaikos coach Giorgos Donis say that the 2 CDM positions have to know how to mark. That’s why he said he wouldn’t play Mantalos there as the 2nd CDM. Same could go for Pelkas, they need to know how to mark. I was thinking of doing the same but Donis brought up a good point.

    I definitely agree we should hope for the best. I think Anastasiadis has to look into the u20s. He said Tsimikas, Galanopoulos, Chatzigiovannis and Koulouris will be given chances. He should also be looking at Masouras, Koutris and Mavropanos. Hopefully Bakasetas stays on the bench for a while aswell as Mantalos. I really hope the people in Crete come and watch the games because we all know the majority of people in Athens and Piraeus have lost hope. Let’s begin a fresh start in a new stadium which hopefully sells out every home game for the homefield advantage.

    What this team needs is a proper coach and captain. Torosidis is ok but we need another Karagounis or Zagorakis. Someone who commands every single bit of hard work and passion for the team. I find this group of players too entitle who don’t understand why it means to represent your country. Each player have to work equally as hard. They have to do go the extra mile. Defensively we seem like naturals in defence, we can defend. I want to see more from us in attack, more hunger and determination. I want our midfielders to not stop running and hasstling, I want our full back to bomb forward and create opportunities and be an option. I want the striker to be the hungriest player on the field. Most of all I want players who everything for the shirt with excuses. Fast players and players with good technique is also preferred. We have to play at a faster tempo with the ball and scramble for it to win it back. Play the right players in the right positions. All this would be done with the right coach and the right leader. I believe with the right coach he will pick the right squad and all of our ??? would be answered.

    Kostas Manolas ‒ AS Roma

    He should go to a better team. Juventus or. Manchester United would be good. Why would he stay at Roma?

    Seems like he can finish. I rated him a lot then thought he would be our future but thats life. He has good close control of the ball and can finish as i said. I would play him as a 10. Seems a bit slow for the wing.

    Another player that everyone had high hopes on. I really hope our new young generation succeed...

    We should really start going for youth now. By the time 2020 comes around Mitroglou and Sokratis will be 32 Torosidis will be 35 and Lazaros will be 34. We need a team of players that will play together all the time from here on out. Create that chemistry and unity within the team so we our players familiar with each other all the way to the Euros in 2020. We having nothing to lose as we need to rebuild and that should start with our youngsters. If we want rebuild again we should play our youngsters from now not later.

    We can also put Retsos and Mavropanos there aswell.

    Good line up. I just don’t think Mitroglou should be by himself anymore. That’s why I put a 3-5-2. Let’s see how Masouras does at Olympiakos. Hopefully he does well. I keep forgetting we have Masouras aswell.

    Yeah but what kind of fan would abandon their team? We can’t just give up... let’s not be those people that support the team only in the good times. The reason why we support the national team is because of having pride and passion for the country and the sport. That’s why we are on here file...

    Sokratis still does the job for Greece which is more than I can ask for. He and Manolas are our saviours in other words. Without them I don’t know how far down the rankings we would be. Our fullbacks are not great defensively. An ageing Torosidis is a problem and also the lack of experience our LBs have should be a concern. Maybe Anastasiadis changes the formation and plays a 3-5-2. It would be a good idea as it would allow our young current wingers to mature at club football first and then be looked at down the road. Something like this... Vlachodimos Manolas Sokratis Papadopoulos Bakakis Kourbelis Zeca Stafyildis Fortounis Donis Mitroglou Bakakis and Stafyldis can put in decent crosses in the box. They aren’t great defensively but can be given a bit more freedom going forward and score or assist. Kourbelis and Zeca would be there as 2 workhorses covering most of the pitch and especially shielding the defence. I play Fortounis behind Mitroglou and Donis, but it would have been intriguing if Tachtsidis would play there as the 10 because of his height, passing and vision. Also he wouldn’t have to worry too much defensively as he could have a free role. His slowness is what sabotages him though. This formation works for our players. I believe having a system that benefits our players will only help in getting the best out of them. In the past we have seen the wrong players play and also the wrong players playing in the wrong position. As this sabotages the teams chances for success. I believe this system would get the best out of our players and it seems the way to go. An inform Tachtsidis would be great in this system.

    Sokratis I think is not as good as he was 4 or 5 years ago. He seems more clumsier now. But he has been doing well in the EPL. Liverpool team is on another planet lately as the whole Arsenal backline got smashed.

    I think it’s more realistic to have Lamprou or Chatzigiovannis on the wing as Anastasiadis is looking to bring up youth. Fetfatzidis and Lazaros seem to be players the coach doesn’t want. But they are worthy candidates. Masouras is a decent option he can score goals and assist well. Let’s see how he does at Olympiakos. Koutris is very good man... has has improved and has got pace. If you watched him closely in previous European games he works very hard defensively and equally as hard offensively in my opinion. He is good trust me. Mitroglou yeah he is big but very slow and out of form. He has regressed in my opinion but is our best option. Karelis does well at ST for the national team. He is always closest to scoring every time he play. We should give Koulouris a chance. I would prefer Pelkas as the 8 but we all know that won’t happen. Galanopoulos is more of a defensive 8 where as Pelkas is the more offensive 8. Depending on the game we should see these players interchanging.
