Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

Recommended Posts

Donis is not good for a striker or winger. He's more of a cf he creates chances and opens up crazy space but yes can't finish or cross. to best utilize him he should play right behind mitro. mitro is our only true striker worth a damn. karelis too is more of a cf but more of a striker than donis for sure. our wings are so weak though. IF we're lucky skibbe might play this (with donis slightly behind mitro)

             Mitro   Donis 

Laz              Fortounis           Pelka

                 Zeca

I agree about Donis playing behind Mitroglou. But I also think we need to utilize his pace on the wing. If somehow he can work on his crosses then we can become even more dangerous.

If we can get Fortounis playing the way he did against Arsenal a few years back then we can definitely become a threat to many teams. In that game he could of scored three goals.

Fortounis is our best CAM. Pelkas the most in form though right now. We definitely should not drop fortounis altogether

 

our best squad at this very moment imo is (Kourbelis, Bakakis, Pelkas need to get blooded).

              mitro
Laz       Donis    pelka
           Kourb Zeca
Staf Sok  Man   Bakakis
              Karnezis

 

it's a shame cuz this is actually a solid squad and when we were actually trying to qualify it was hard to get an in form starting 11.

I hope that's our line up on Friday.

x3, if Skibbe has any brains we see something like that.

Apparently he is going with the team that started in the play offs. How F***ed can he be.

According to Gazetta they are going with Karnezis, Toro, Manolas, Sokratis, Staf, Zeca, Samaris, Fortounis, Laz, Donis and Mitro.

That's not a bad starting line up, that will probably be our line up come September.  The key now is to make the subs to see who would fit in with them.

Gazetta with more logic than the coach. Retsos at lb lol let's put Tsiolis as st and Tzavellas at am, fortou as rb, Mitro as dm and bakasetas as cb, Toro in goal and socs and mano on the wings. What an imbecile this coach is honest to God. And if this is the EPO telling him what to do, or the powers that be... I'd quit instantly. Rather quit that look like a clueless knob.

after watching that match vs swiss best lineup would maybe be

       mitro

pelka fetfa laz

  gala zeca

hole sok man retsos

        karnezis

 

kourbelis and koulouri flops 

pelka and laz form carried to the NT

retsos nice as a full back and makes our defense even more robust

torosidis is finished. 

fortounis is good but needs to get his confidence and form back and for now should be a bench option.

donis overhyped.

bakasetas for depth but should not be starting above laz.

NO PLAYER SHOULD BE PLAYING UNLESS THEY'VE GOT 30+ GAMES UNDER THEIR BELT PAST YEAR AKA TOROSIDIS, SAMARIS SHOULD NOT BE ON THE FIELD.

Don't you think saying Donis is overhyped is an exaggeration? I thought Donis looked very solid out there, but he did have one mistake and that was not shooting the ball one his breakaway.

Donis is not overhyped. I thought he did well. Could of played better but that's because he hasn't been playing for the last 3 weeks. 

When in form he can be very dangerous.

@georgelaz Kourbelis flop?? He got 10 mins, he at least ran into space unlike Samaris who would pass the ball out.

I really don’t agree with you calling Kourbeli a flop. When the right guys finally came on at the end we looked half decent

Georgelaz you make some great points and others not so great. I love your lineup except for Fetfa and Holebas. We know fully well that both those players will never be called up again while Skibbe is coach so there is no point penciling them as starters. I would go with a healthy Mantalos in his natural position at CAM and switch Retsos to LB and go Bakakis as RB.

How can you say that Kourbelis and Koulouris were flops? They both came on in the 73rd minute. A player needs like 15 minutes just to get into the flow of the game. Let's rate them after they've started and played a full 90 a few times.

I wouldn't say Toro is finished but he doesn't start at Bologna so definitely Bakakis should be the starter at RB right now.

Donis is not overhyped just gets brain cramps when he approaches goal he can sort that out. Runs his ass off for the team and this is what we need.

Everything else you said I agree with. Should have started Kourbelis in place of Samaris and give him a go for the full 90 as Samaris barely sees the field for Benefica.

Almost 2 years now this coach has been at the helm, and it's like he's seeing this team and our talent for the first time... It's just stunning the absolute lack of sense this coach has for our team. Unfortunately we're all wasting our typing ability cause he's not gonna do anything logical. He'll continue to give us all more grey hairs throughout this next campaign. He might get lucky with some good picks or decisions here and there, but that's prob gonna be rare. 

I read through here, and there are so many logical choices and picks that are talked about, and alot of them are pretty simple and obvious, yet this tool box coach can't see it. 

We don't always agree with what coaches in general decided, but we can usually understand what they were trying to do... Skibbe is like a Rubik's cube with some of the colors missing.

An Ultimatum to the EPO

1. Enough of this. Skibbe must go at once.

2. Some of the current players - Bakasetas, Samaris, Koulouris, Kourbelis, Tziolis, Donis, Vellios, Siopis, Gianniotas - should be banned for a life by EPO.

3. Barkas, Gianniotis, Kyriakos Papadopoulos, Tachtsidis, Karelis, Tzavellas should be replaced before Monday by more trustworthy and more promising guys: Chalkias, Konstantopoulos, Siovas, Marinos, Vyntra, Moras, Avraam, Zaradoukas, Patsatzoglou, Fotakis, Pliatsikas, Maniatis, Katidis (his ban should be lifted), Mantzios.

4. Otto Rehhagel must be rehired at once (Santos is not available). The terms of his contract will be drafted by the community of Phantis Forums.

5. Giannis Topalidis and Leonidas Vokolos will be his assistants.

6. Takis Fyssas should return to the position of technical director of the EPO.

If Skibbe was a rubiks cube it would about 2 colors and you still wouldn't be able to connect them all - that sums up his coaching, meanwhile he would still be contempt with that :confused:

How did Koulouris get called up over Manias and Giakoumakis (Levadiakos )?

Koulouris only has 2 goals in the league this season and they were both from the penalty spot!

Meanwhile, Manias has 8 goals and Giakoumakis has 7. Furthermore, they were both good last season too, especially Manias. Last season, Manias had 10 goals in a half a season.

I don't know man it's crazy. How did Kone not get called up? Galanopoulos didn't get called up probably because of of the u21s. Lamprou the winger of Panionios should get a look in next time also.
