^ for sure

Apparently there was some crowd trouble at the game. Possible pitch invasion + the destruction of some of AEK's bus's windows. I'm reading that the stuff that happened in the stadium could result in a 2-4 game home fans ban and a three point deduction. I'll eat my hat if that happens.

If the rules are applied, Olympiakos faces 3 point deduction, heavy fines and games behind closed doors.

So what you're saying is, the rules won't be applied

How did you guess?  I think they will get -3 points which will be overturned on appeal.

If this isn't a cut and dried case for points deductions I don't know what is.  If this isn't such a case, how do we define such a case ?  When there are "x" number of fans on the pitch ?  When there are "x" number of punches thrown ?  When there is "x" dollars of property damage done to the stadium ?  End of the day, it has to pass the common sense test, and that is, do we want this sort of thing discouraged or not ?  If your answer is no i.e. you are all right with this sort of thing happening any time, then sure, there should be no points deductions.  But then those who complain of the poor state of football in Greece in general can stop their complaining or their calls for improvement.

Greeks being Greeks, with cynicism in our blood, will say "Of course Olympiakos had points deducted, Savvidis owns EPO and he wants to win the league".  And you know what, they may be right, but of what relevance is this ?  Should Olympiakos feel aggrieved if there is a points deduction because in the past they would have gotten away with it ?  Is the implication that if Marinakis controls EPL then there would not be a points deduction ?!  The implication is that no one in Greece believes in a fair and just system.  They believe that the only way to get justice is to control EPO.  You either control it and have ... a better brand of justice ... or you don't and you have no justice.  Either way, it reflects poorly on Greeks and Greece as a nation.  It's actually embarrassing.

Olympiakos should cop it.  And cop it sweet, and the same should happen to any other team that has a similar incident where there is a violent (violent being the operative word) pitch invasion.  You can't let incidents like this go unpunished and anything short of points deductions is a slap on the wrist.

They've already churned out a statement about what happened with our fans at Giannina and how we aren't going to be punished. Trouble outside the stadium isn't a pitch invasion last time I checked, but hey im not sure

Greek football has always been embarrassing with this sort of stuff. No one can just take a punishment, or admit they were beaten by a better team. There's always a conspiracy. We too have been guilty of that in the past. 

The difference is Olympiakos has 2 men who are A class liars and do mind stepping in front of the cameras and talking absolute pure s%$#!. It's honestly laughable at times the things that come out of Savvas mouth. Marinaki to a lesser extent but he spoke up after the AEK game and did make me giggle a little. They are so good at it, it honestly makes me think they believe the stuff they are saying

The propaganda machine went into full swing digging out youtube videos claiming our fans caused serious trouble in Giannina. Never mind that one of the videos they were peddling was actually showing Giannina fans breaking seat at the stadium.

AEK is leading Olympiakos 1:0 in the cup game in the 60th minute. Was hoping for 0:0 , extra time and penalties.

Game ended 2-1 in favor of AEK. Were there really no cards?

Olympiakos managed to score one but could not tie the game and qualify. AEK in the semifinals of the cup.

Surprisingly there were not, although this action by Miralas is a direct red:

Anyone see how Olympiakos played? I'm hoping we'll see them enter a period of near-constant depression-driven losses, myself.

I saw most of the game. AEK played their usual physical game and capitalized on the two chances they got. Olympiakos did not have any answers even though they almost tied it at the end. If they are punished with a 3 points deduction, I could see them giving up on the title race.

We need the guys from US Border Security na mi perasi bengaliko i kounoupi mesa. Really, there must be a thorough search for everyone, maybe especially at gate 4. We can not afford any deduction of points or whatsoever.

It seems like Sky Sports reported that Glykos was signed to Nottingham Forest, lol:

How does something like that happen?  Well, if you google "Stefanos Kapino" and hit images this pops up (the write probably just wanted an in game photo and paid zero attention that this guy looks NOTHING like the 50 other faces on the page):

That's pretty funny. Forest would probably do better if they DID sign Glykos, however.

AEK managed a 1-0 win vs Asteras, through a penalty that was converted by the construction worker.

Olympiakos drew 2-2 vs Atromitos, which is a great result for us. Current standings:

AEK 47

PAOK 46

OSFP 43

Atromitos 39

A win tomorrow will put us two points ahead of AEK, and six points ahead of Olympiakos. As a reminder, next week AEK hosts Xanthi while Olympiakos hosts Panionios. Any draws or losses by those two will give us a massive advantage heading into the end of the season.

We get a chance to put them both away in Toumba.... If we don't beat them both in the home games, we don't deserve a championship.  What kinda champion are you when you lose all your derby's?

Let's see if it survives the appeal process.

In other news Olympiakos looks to blame indiscriminately.   EPO, Tsipras, Savvidis, Illuminati, Soros, Trump, the sun, the moon and even the wind have been accused of conspiring against Olympiakos.

Ha ha ha, it's so entertaining.

Anybody saw the friendly between AEK and Xanthi? What a joke.

AEK is tied with D. Kiiv 0:0 in the 60th minute in  Europa League. With that score they are eliminated.

I hope this ends in 1:1 tie, extra time and penalty shootout with AEK winning of course. The other option is for AEK just to win and continue in the competition.
