  1. European matches

    AEK should have popped in a goal, I watched the game and they had a few glorious chances and dominated the possession. Lazaros played a great match and hit a nice free kick. It would have been nice to see a Greek side progress to the last 16 of this competition. AEK have had an impressive run recently.
  2. NT Friendly Games

    The EPO now decides to schedule 3 friendly matches after we fail to make the World Cup? Could have used a few friendly matches during last campaign to play some younger players.
  3. Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    Hopefully Donis will pan out for us going into the next campaign he is a very promising attacking minded player, something we have not seen in a while.
  4. NT Friendly Games

    I hope we get a win vs Egypt can't believe they are in the World Cup
  5. 2018-2019 UEFA Nations League C

    If the team is prepared and focused and Skibbe fields our best 11 we should get a W in Estonia.
  6. 2018-2019 UEFA Nations League C

    We got a great draw, looks like Estonia might be the toughest side with Hungary on the decline.
  7. NT Friendly Games

    Good points, I can't believe that Greece did not play a single friendly in a year just ridiculous. Would have helped Skibbe see that Maniatis at RB was not suitable, especially vs a team with the attacking prowess of Croatia.
  8. NT Friendly Games

    Finally a friendly match when was the last time we had one was it vs Iceland?
  9. 2018-2019 UEFA Nations League C

    Losing out on a 3rd spot possibility to get in to the Euros is huge especially if we are drawn into a difficult group based on our low ranking. Skibbe better be better prepared this time around we can't afford any poor performances.
  10. 2018-2019 UEFA Nations League C

    Hopefully we can go through via this route.
  11. PAO Cup Games 2017-2018

    Our historic club is in shambles!
  12. 2018-2019 UEFA Nations League C

    I agree, how have we managed to go below Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, and worst of all Scotland? Watching the WorldCup draw was so depressing seeing what could and should have been. There are a few cream puff groups and we could have been in the ko round, but the coach and team screwed up the vital 1st leg vs Croatia. One would think we should qualify for the next Euros but I am very nervous about it.
  13. OLY had the chances to win this game, just couldn't take them unfortunately, There worst campaign since 2006 when they managed 3 points in the group stage.
  14. Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    Holebas had to be starting for us, what did he do to get the cold shoulder from Skibbe? Not having him starting for this team is mind boggling.
  15. I'm hoping for a result for Greek football and especially with the game in Greece. Go Olympiakos!
  16. FIFA World Ranking

    Should be more teams from Europe there...now we get to watch Saudis, iran,Tunisia, Morroco and Panama a horrible side. This is no where near the quality of watching the Euros when it was a 16 team format.
  17. Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    Samaris should not be starting maybe coming in off the bench. Holebas brings a lot to the team we could have used him vs Croatia, to bad Skibbe didn't play him and he chose to retire from the Ethniki.
  18. FIFA World Ranking

    Ya it sucks having watched it and not being there hurts. There are some really open groups, how could Greece not have beaten Croatia,thinking to myself that we could have landed in Group A and done damage. What a waste.. England again get another layup drawing Panama (worst team tournament) and Tunisia. What a joke.
  19. FIFA World Ranking

    Peru could possibly be banned by FIFA for the World Cup due to political interference. Italy could get there spot or even Holland?? why would those teams get the spot especially Holland they didn’t even reach the playoffs. New Zealand lost to Peru would it not make more sense for them to get the spot? Then again this is FIFA, hopefully they would put Greece in for screwing us with the Manolas suspension.
  20. A disgusting performance by OLY this Sporting Lisbon not Barcelona. They failed to gain a point from this side. A disastrous CL showing.
  21. FIFA World Ranking

    We remain at 47th. Surprised we did not drop. Miss the days of Greece being ranked near the top ten.
  22. FIFA World Ranking

    We're going to be stuck watching Tziolis,Tzavellas and Samaris and will be scratching our heads with call ups to Vellios and Diamantakos.
  23. FIFA World Ranking

    I thought we would have punched our ticket to the World Cup once we were confirmed as one of the playoff teams. Especially after getting Belgium to beat Bosnia in a meaningless match for them and then we got help from Slovenia drawing Scotland to get us in. It just seemed like we would overcome anyone in the playoff (my only concern was drawing Italy). It all went wrong with the Manolas suspension and Skibbes ridiculous lineup in Zagreb. What was he thinking I still watch the matches and I can't believe his tactics and some of the players he went with. To lose to Croatia is bad enough, but 4-1 and with three goals conceded in the 1st half in the first game is a disgrace and it shows how unprepared Skibbe was for the task at hand. We better hope we get a great draw and not have to go to playoffs for a Euro 2020 spot.
  24. FIFA World Ranking

    Skibbe has been given a contract extension by EPO with a 30% pay haircut. I guess this means we will unfortunately have to continue too see Tziolis and Maniatis get the call for the Ethniki. He better get us in too the next Euro and I hope he demands the EPO set up some friendly matches. I hope for the best, will all be watching a 2nd tournament in a row without Greece.
  25. Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    I watched the 1st leg again the commentators were shocked at how unorganized and stretched we were at the back. They questioned our formation and kept saying that Maniatis looked totally lost he did not know whether to cover Perisic more in the middle or track Strinic down the wings. Complete disorganization in a playoff match to go to the World Cup its unacceptable, I know Manolas would have settled things down but what was Skibbe doing? The Tzavellas pass back was absurd,why not boot it up the pitch and Karnezis trying to control it like he's a centre mid? Our world cup hopes went down the drain in those first 30 minutes just appauling....
