  1. just be honest. she might initially be offended but because you were honest it will also build trust. double edged sword though if she's a dumby might just choose to be offended. high risk high reward, baby!
  2. working like someone is trying to steal their girlfriends lmao that's a quote and a half
  3. Good point that they probably do care but they're going about it the completely wrong way in my opinion. I'm sure Zikos and Georgatos cared too but their attitude wasn't good for the locker room
  4. yeah seems they have heavy ego. They're like we play in top clubs in Europe, who's this little super league coach think he knows better than me. Not realizing that a lot of the reason why they're great players is because they are part of great clubs. The great clubs of Arsenal and Roma are able to mask the ego. This is different to our top class players before. They were more humble and did whatever needed to be done for the NT and never gave up. IE Salpingidis, Karagounis, Zagorakis. Hard working and humble players. Sokratis is a sore loser. Not captain material at all. Actually the only player who I think mentally is strong and a good example is Zeca. In all honesty Zeca should probably be captain. Sad. A non-Greek but he plays harder and hustles harder then any other Greek I can think of in the 11. The other ones waste precious energy getting frustrated. Zeca puts his head down and WORKS. We only have to beat Finland twice guys and we're back in it. It's not the hugest mountain to climb. (As well as win our other games and the Italy game can probably be lost/drawn. This is probably why Otto kicked out Zikos and Georgatos even though they were clearly part of the best 11 talent wise. Their mentality was cancer. A hard working player like Zeca increases the team exponentially. Maybe we should even play with our under 21s. Bring in Chatzigiovannis, Bouzoukis etc. I never thought I'd say that but yeah I finally see these guys are prima donnas. maybe something like this Koulouris Donis Bouzoukis Chatzigiovannis zeca(c) kourbelis koutris siovas retsos bakakis odysseas not sure. Sokratis very suspect though and it sucks because he's our best player but what he's saying is just so wrong. Kastouranis is friends with him and needs to knock some sense into him. I like Bakakis, Koutris, Zeca, Chatzi, Bouzoukis because they're very hard workers. Retsos and Donis also give me the vibe as well. I think Koulouris would feed off of that as well. I think Siovas is solid as well and elphantos who knows them says he has more brains than Sokratis/Manolas Odysseas I'm not sure on I mean he plays for Benfica but maybe even pasxalakis. Zeca and Kourbelis have good chemistry from the pao days even with this line up I think we should be able to beat Finland provided the cancer mentality dies a captain should motivate the other players and the only player I think that does that is Zeca for us.
  5. Sokratis's saying that we can't make it is loser mentality. Sorry. I'm from kalamata like him so I have a soft spot for him but that's a loser mentality. Not captain material and diva behaviour. He's good in the good times and a baby in the bad times. We've lost to Albania in qualifiers and some other minnows before. You gotta have a never say die attitude. This shows one of the main problems with the NT. The psychology is off. The talent is there because we're clearly better than Armenia. We're . underperforming. Team should invest in sports psychologists and some Tony Robbins seminars, seriously..
  6. Otto started making weird selections before he stopped being our coach. Like Charisteas on the wing. Euro 2004 had a lot of things going for it. Lotsa in form players playing in top leagues.
  7. I liked the fight at the end nearly tied it at 3-3 with sokratis cross bar header. We're not dark ages but we're a team that battles for that last qualifier spot. We also were missing two of our best attackers in Mitroglou and Donis. Torosidis out is also a loss. We can still do this. If we came back against Bosnia away then we can win every game. The Italy game is the only game on paper we should lose. Bosnia took a massive blow by us and we still have to face Finland. Finland had our number in nations league though so that's the key match up. I'm less optimistic about the NT though for sure finally.
  8. I haven't payed attention enough to the game but it seems we're playing a very high line. whenever greece played well we played deep heart attack defensive football. we should perhaps return to that. i understand we got speed with manolas and sokratis but we should just tighten up the back and just take our shots rather then play possession style and do nothing. I'd take a classic 1-0 or 0-0 then copping 2 goals to Northern Ireland and Armenia
  9. pretty sure we lost like 5 keys player after world cup 2014 + new coach. No Kastouranis, Samaras, Karagounis, Salpingidis, Gekas. Huge hole was left that campaign. The last euro we were okay. We gave Belgium a run for their money and they were top 4 and got knocked by Croatia who was in the final. The other tournys were we qualified we got in by 2nd and knock out rounds to Ukraine and Romania. A lot of things lined up.
  10. is Bakakis not available? Should just start him. He's an engine a key player for a competitive AEK. He's no prime Toro or Seitaridis but he's the most in form RB we got and battle proven the past 5 years or so.
  11. I'd take a draw. the real matches to be won are against finland / bosnia. will be very interesting how we match up against the italians though. I have always felt that from the teams often in top 10 discussions that they're the ones we can take the most. we have similar playing styles. They have more skill in the attacking third, whereas we have more size/strength in the defensive third.
  12. Bakakis is okay as RB. He has great stamina and decent crossing. We just been blessed with great RB's in Torosidis and Seitaridis over the years. Left flank looks better though with Staf, Tsimikas, Koutris hopefully Mitroglou can be there. his strength and ability to score on very few chances like he did against Belgium is invaluable to the NT.
  13. WEIRD starting 11. koutris as a cb who's a 5'8 lb and masouras who's a winger/striker at rb? mavrias who's a rb/rm as cb too. wtf we have amazing cbs and he doesnt even start?! shame if we had no cb's available he should've just put kourbelis and samaris at cb who can play there
  14. I don't think that Turkey is a good friendly idea. Because of the history and politics etc. it's not a good reflection of where our team is at. IE the last friendly with them we were playing not too lose and just did 5 atb so they wouldn't score at all costs. I guess an exercise for our defensive muscle but no. I think a smarter friendly would be between a very good side ie) France, Belgium, Netherlands or a smaller side with a more professional FA like Northern Ireland, Wales, Czech Republic playing a rival international derby is just unnecessary stress Northern Ireland would be good because they're a mix of english 1st and 2nd division players. Probably the best run league in the world.
  15. Mavropanos barely starts for Arsenal this season and the few games he has arsenal ate so many goals. Retsos has been out as much as Kpaps this season. I'd personally like Retsos to be our RB to just make it sturdy. His crossing and ability going forward is suspect. He's very conservative defensive winger. Kinda reminds me of Vyntra but with way more potential. Siovas you can make an argument for and he's the only one of the 6 that has long ball playing abilities. He also is uniquely left footed and as the great prophet elphantos says he's the one with the most brains of the 6 (possibly Retsos does too but haven't seen enough of him and he's not as robust.)
