  1. Am clutching at straws here but the send off was a clean tackle in my opinion however it was from behind and it was the refs call. It appeared to be all ball but we were 4 against 3 at that moment and once the saudi lad got through us we were asking for trouble. Also we hit the wood work twice but that is football. On the negative side we have over 30 players playing in strong european competitions outside of Greece. Fair enough if skibbe elects not to use the tried and tested players but at least a dozen of these guys he ignored and has ignored since hes been in charge. Only one he used today from outside the greek league is tziolis which as captain was astonishing. Tzismikas, Charisis, Mavropanos, Retsos, Lykogiannis, Katranis and Karamanos at least if fit should have got a few minutes.
  2. GREECE 1 O. Karnezis 15 V. Torosidis 19 S. Papastathopoulos 4 K. Manolas 23 P. Retsos 22 A. Samaris 10 K. Fortounis 8 Zeca 11 K. Mitroglou 14 A. Bakasetas 20 A. Donis SWITZERLAND 1 Y.

Not unhappy with starting 11 for Ellas, Would prefer to have Karelis and Charisis in for Bakesetas and Fortounis but will take this.

    if getting regular game time wld rather players playing in top flight Belgium than Greece; Bad career move for the Ethniki anyway when Taxi signed with Oly. Also Fortounis needs to go to a better league and improve on the player he is so to Mantalos. IMO Spanish, German, France, Italy, England, Dutch, Belgium and Portugal top flight regulars get priority over the rest. Would only look at rest if we had nothing else available. Our failure to qualify for WC is down to 2 things. 1 Croatia has a cracking group of players and 2 some of our key players either made some untimely or poor career moves or got injured/ unavailability at wrong time for the Ethniki. No issue with Premier league but Karnezis was regular in Italy. That moved killed us. Kapino to Oly has not worked for individual or the NT. Mitro injury and moved to France killed us. Agree about Tsiolis, Maniatis etc should not be playing for Ethniki. Manolas suspension sucked. Siovas should have also been picked in the squad. Plays in the best comp in the world and a regular. Plays against monster forwards every week and yet not even in the squad. Am very passionate about the NT. Love them and have for many years. We can be better than where we are in the rankings.

    Would love to see a few more of the boys playing in Belgium top league looked at. Karelis is the only one that has been looked at in recent times until he was injured. Players like Harisis should be given a go. Our midfield needs to be improved also if Kolovos gets back to full fitness give him some game time for the Ethniki

    Would love to see Siovas and Karamanos (plays in the Portugese league} be called up for the Ethniki.
