    Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    Fourtounis has been stuck in the Greek league for a few seasons now. It would be good for him to test himself in a more prominent european league where he can get exposed to a different style of football. He has talent, just needs to find consistency in his game.

    He should get game time over Lazaros, Fetfa has provided exiting football in SA, still deserves a game during the friendlies. Our team will only grow if learn to become less dependent on the ageing likes of Tzolis and one-dimensional players like Tachstidis.

    I would agree, now teams have something to play for
  4. I was trying to highlight how many coaches use the saudi league as an excuse to not select players. Fetfa can play as a number 9 and on the wing. He should be innthw team
  5. fetfa would slot into our team nicely. i really dont know why he doesnt play. He tears up the saudi league every week, how can you play tzolis from saudi and not fetfa?>
  6. there are some creative midfielders in the team, even gianniotas played creatively for the 30' he was on for, Skibbe just doesnt use what he has available. I hope the end of this campaign is the turning point for the team, get rid of the old and bring in the new
  7. i would think that the manolas desicion was the first step in putting us behind the croats. I would actually prefer his suspension to be on the second leg, would have given us more belief

    Completely agree with all the points raised here. We need to move on from the old, slow style of play in which we have played for the last decade. Players like Tzolis, Maniatis, Tzavellas need to go immediately. We must start playing quick, exciting football then absorbing the pressure for 90' and playing for a draw. no good side plays well when they play for draws. We need change immediately.

    I agree, but playing top quality teams and being competative rather than playing some pushover smaller nations will be much better. If we get beaten well, than the EPO may decide to do something.

    i would hope greece could be part of this. if we could face quality competition in italy, netherlands and chile, we as fans can understand how far we are really off the WC level
  11. they play as a team and utilise their strengths to play well. Iceland played unbelivably in the last euros and continue to break the records. they have a plan that works, the player know what they are doing and they all play towards a common goal, greece on the other hand have no idea whats happening, it doesnt suprise me. We should be in the WC, but our mistakes have lead us to miss out
  12. Will vlachomodios be are next keeper choice if he continues to develop the way he has been? I feel like Kapino is falling out of favour both internationally and club level
  13. Does anyone have a list of our quality up and coming youngsters from U-19 and U-21, are any of them a realistic chance for call-ups in the next two years?
  14. there is no other minor tournament for all the non-qualified nations, is there? Will the next 4-6 games for the ethniki be friendly's or something else?
  15. Our team does have potential. players like pelkas, christodopoulous, retsos, bakasetas, vlahomodios, k paps, stalfyndidids, fortounis, ganniotas, siopis, mantalos, donis and karelis all have bright futures ahead of them and most are NT material. I would hope we can create a stronger line-up for the next euros, but i do have my doubts. We will likely see Karnezis?/Vlahomodios stalf? - Sokratis - Manolas - Retsos Zeca - Siopis Donis- Fourtounis - Mantalos Mitroglou I feel like if we can develop such a strong lineup, the team does have a strong future. Do i think sacking Skibbe is the answer, no. Out NT does have some issues, the lack of funding and the corruption which occurs isnt healthy for the sport, but the turnaround of the team from 2014 to 2017 has shown us that there is a future in greek football. Croatia was always going to be a hard opponent, 2nd to italy. Denmark and switzerland would have given us a different story altogether but luck does also play into it. I just hope we dont go backwards from here, the boys need inspiration and need some reward for their effort. When they press they can create chances and they do love playing for their country. Bring on 2020
